Collaboration is an important part of Marcy’s artistic life. She has worked on dozens of video projects with Gene Panczenko.

For four years, she was part of The Cathouse Associates, creating and exhibiting collaborative drawings, collages, and small sculptures. She has performed with dancers and musicians in live, multi-media spectacles. Most recently, Freedman joined forces with two other artists to form In_Question. This group creates large public installations, curates exhibitions, and stages various events in order to provoke thought, encourage conversation, and inspire action in response to the current social and political situation in the United States.
