Asher Hartman

Dreams, psychic readings, intuitive moments and automatic writing are just a few of this Los Angeles-based artist/psychic/playwright's favorite things. This weekend he'll be at White Page Gallery in Minneapolis for a conversation about his work with FD13 Residency for the Arts director Sara Cluggish, and then a group meditation. His mysterious practice as an intuitive and psychic informs his work as director of the Gawdafful National Theater Company. During a residence at the Hammer Museum in L.A., they collected people's dreams from an overnight dream-in. He has also performed at LACMA. Often his work is inspired by a single performative moment, as in a 2011 appearance at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions that focused on the point in a stand-up routine when a comedian definitively turns against the audience. He's currently working on a new play, "The Dope Elf." (7 p.m. Fri., 3400 Cedar Av. S., Mpls. Free. Reserve tickets at
