Name: Alanna Heiss
Biography: Alanna Heiss (1943-) first made her mark in 1971, with her project underneath the Brooklyn Bridge. She organized more than 20 artists and perfomances that included Carl Andre, Tina Girouard, Jeffrey Lew, Keith Sonnier, Gordon Matta-Clark, Jene Highstein, Sol LeWitt, Richard Norus and Dennis Oppenheim. Heiss was unable to get permission to host a gathering on the pier, so she filed permission for a four day film shoot (which she was given). Heiss has since, been celebrated in the alternative space movement, and would go on to become founder of P.S.1. Contemporary Arts Center. Our tour did not include a visit to the Brooklyn Bridge, but did include a visit to 108 Leonard Street, the Clock Tower Gallery in SoHo, where Art on the Air Radio is located, along with Heiss’ headquarters (Andrew Russeth, October 9, 2011).
