In his third one-year performance piece, from 26 September 1981 through 26 September 1982, Hsieh spent one year outside, not entering buildings or shelter of any sort, including cars, trains, airplanes, boats, or tents. As he roamed around Lower Manhattan he relied on pay phones and chance meetings to keep in touch with his friends. Each day, he recorded his wanderings on a map, noting in particular the places where he ate and slept. The film documents his activities over the course of the year.
Following the event the film will be available to view for free on the LADA Screens channel for two weeks, between 12 and 26 October 2015.
The newly released paperback edition of ‘Out of Now: The Lifeworks of Tehching Hsieh’ by Adrian Heathfield and Tehching Hsieh will be available to buy on the night at a discounted price.
