6pm-8pm

OPENING RECEPTION: MARCH 01, 2011 6:00 PM It has been almost two years since the very first release of Impossible instant film, the wildly anticipated new black & white instant film for Polaroid SX-70 cameras. Although the film was initially in a developmental stage and highly experimental, it dawned on both fanatics and photographers alike that the impossible actually could become possible. Just 19 months later, Impossible has released 12 unique film types for three separate Polaroid camera systems. Although the journey has been short, the length Impossible has come represents a milestone in reviving instant analog photography. Using Impossible’s latest color and black & white films, twelve carefully selected photographers are illustrating a MOMENTUM that will carry instant analog photography through the digital age and beyond.

8:30 – Elisa Flynn – cited as spearheading a genre of literate rock songs, Ms. Flynn writes songs that explore historical themes, allusively. Sometimes she unleashes a swirling dreampop cyclotron, other times a savage roar, often both at once. http://www.elisaflynn.com/ 9:15 – Le Cowboy – If Meaghan Burke (cello), Bernd Klug (double bass), and David Schweighart (drums), three of Vienna’s most thrillingly high-energy improvisers, were to release their full power in the trio “le cowboy,” they would likely end up with a graveyard of (lovingly) destroyed instruments. Fortunately, they don’t. Le cowboy lets its story unfold slowly – a story of a music on the brink of self-destruction, a music that simmers, stutters, scratches against its own boundaries in the constant drama of expectation of a climax which is never to be indulged. (WOW). http://www.reverbnation.com/lecowboyband MORE: http://thesupercoda.com/

Dutch Lutenist Jozef Van Wissem is renowned for his experimental approach to Renaissance and Baroque forms of lute music. By cutting-and-pasting classical pieces, constructing palindromic melodies, or adding electronics and processed field recordings, he manages to seamlessly bridge the musical languages of 17th and 21st centuries. If this approach seems coldly academic on paper, the results are anything but: his music is uncluttered and direct, with a viscerally hypnotic and emotional impact, and delivered with an ascetic intensity reflected both in his Biblical titles and his No Wave influences. An incessantly touring musician, van wissem’s hypnotic live shows have taken him all over the world. He has records out on Important Records and his own Incunabulum label. .Van Wissem studied lute in New york with Pat O’Brien and released a classical lute CD ” A Rose By Any Other Name” consisting of anonymous lute pieces.

Barbara Hannigan, soprano Canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan has forged a unique career at the very highest level. Her captivating, pre-eminent performances of twentieth and twenty-first century repertoire – she has given over 75 world premieres – have won new audiences for contemporary music. Widely acclaimed for her interpretations of Ligeti, recent highlights have included performances of his Le Grand Macabre, Mysteries of the Macabre and Requiem with the New York Philharmonic (Alan Gilbert), Berliner Philharmoniker (Sir Simon Rattle) and Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks (Esa-Pekka Salonen) respectively.

or more than four decades, Woods’ drawings have expressed compelling ideas and portrayed otherworldly scenes that suggest alternate histories and futures. With an inventive drive akin to that of Leonardo da Vinci and Giambattista Piranesi, and following the lineage of Enlightenment architect Etienne-Louis Boullée and Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger, Woods invites us to imagine worlds as they might be. His drawings embrace decomposition alongside construction and ruin along with rebirth, presenting a heady brew of politics, history, and graphic bravura that never fails to astonish.

For one night in March, The Odyssey Project will escape the cold of winter and go inside. Exploring metamorphosis and the belly of the whale, we will uncover the hidden worlds inside of every hero, inside each of us. The starting point of the project is the strong belief that every individual living on this planet is on a journey just as heroic and epic as the characters in Homer’s myth .

On offer will be films spanning the past hundred years, including animated, experimental, musical and some that defy category. Entertaining too. Come see newly acquired favorites as well as a few “deep catalog” titles from the archive. The scales will fall from your eyes as you let these images tickle your reptilian brain. You’ll be challenged, entertained, confounded and uplifted

UNEARTHISH – Sarah Bernstein/Satoshi Takeishi Duo – at CORNELIA ST CAFE in NYC
http://sarahbernstein.bandcamp.com/
03/09/2012-03/09/2012
6pm-8pm

Beat poets used jazz as a backdrop for their prose but their approach was more parallel than integrative and more deferential than symbiotic. While Unearthish invites that comparison, violinist/poet Sarah Bernstein has instead created compositions that are post-Beat holistic works of art. Her muse is more the performance poetry of Hedwig Gorski than Allen Ginsberg’s Howl set to a soundtrack of Miles or Trane. Bernstein attacks a diverse array of subjects with staccato jibes and jabs that can require some interpretation. “War” is “fear within a square” while “Normality” is feeling that escalates into insanity and is then transformed into normality. Her gift though is the exquisite interlacing of the rhythm and feel of her words with the rhythm and feel of the music. Bernstein’s violin is also a versatile voice and she uses some electronics to shape its sound. Percussionist Satoshi Takeishi is Bernstein’s rhythmical partner on these duets and he has never sounded more at home.

10:30pm-

Our show is an ever-changing attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes–an original concept by Greg Allen and the Neo-Futurists. The single unifying element of these plays is that they are performed from a perspective of absolute honesty. We always appear as ourselves on stage, speaking directly from our personal experiences. Each short play is written by a performer, honed by the ensemble, and randomly collaged with twenty-nine other plays through high energy audience participation. Each week, these plays shift as ensemble members add new plays to the existing body of work. Each night of performance, we aim to create an unreproducable living newspaper of the comic and tragic, the political and personal, the visceral and experimental.

Second set is Lucio Menegon, Upholstery, Charmaine’s Names, Valerie Kuehne. What’s a Round Robin? – The term round-robin was originally used to describe a document signed by multiple parties in a circle to make it more difficult to determine the order in which it was signed, thus preventing a ringleader from being identified.[1] The term has evolved to account for any activity in which a group of resources is interacted with singularly and in a circular order. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Round-robin

OCCUPY ROUSSEAU: INEQUALITY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE

7pm-

Distinguished intellectuals, political leaders, activists, and artists from both Geneva and the U.S. join forces to ask that question. Rousseau was an ardent defender of equality, justice and democratic participation. His moral and civic anger at the ways in which the Enlightenment “threw garlands of flowers over our chains” speaks directly to today’s protest movements, from Occupy Wall Street to the populist side of the Tea Party. What is the relevance and urgency of Rousseau’s political and social ideas today? How does the author of Discourse on Inequality help us explore the disturbing and destabilizing cracks that have led to democracies in crisis, perhaps in demise?

11am-6pm

Exhibition Hours: Tuesday–Friday, 12–6pm; Saturday 11–6pm Open Sunday, March 11 from 12–6 FREE Curated by Rashida Bumbray This solo exhibition presents the New York premiere of Simone Leigh’s most recent sculptural explorations of materiality, women’s work, and Afrofuturism. Leigh is known for her archaic, anthropomorphic forms in porcelain, terracotta, tobacco, glass, and steel that employ early African ceramic techniques to evoke contemporary parallels and underlying social and economic conditions. For You Don’t Know Where Her Mouth Has Been, Leigh draws from a diverse range of influences, from early African-American face jugs and the manifesto of Africobra to Star Trek and Gilbert and Sullivan in order to evocatively explore the slippages between the multifarious cultural, political, and colonial histories that have laid claim to marginalized bodies.

Evelyn by Nellie Tinder

8pm-10pm

A new piece by Nellie Tinder, “Evelyn” is the story of a film star committed to a mysterious mental health facility in the midst of a druidical wood. Told through noir/suspense narrative styling, and scored by a small live orchestra that draws on the movie houses of old, Evelyn is a darkly classic story of the stranger who infiltrates a closed society and tears it apart.

THE DUMPSTER PROJECT
http://www.theinvisibledog.org/?p=8759
02/21/2012-03/31/2012
00pm-00pm

FROM JANUARY 8 Premiering at the DUMBO Arts Festival on September 23, 2011, The Dumpster Project is a work of transportable public art. The Dumpster Project is also a daily blog (www.thedumpsterproject.com). Fundamentally, though, The Dumpster Project is a physical taxonomy of one man’s existence. Mac Premo is a Brooklyn-based collage artist. His longtime Boerum Hill studio was a sanctuary for an assortment of objects accumulated over decades. Included among the hundreds of items are old baseball cards he shared with his dad, the shoes his eldest daughter first walked in, recently extracted wisdom teeth from an eccentric friend, a Persian music mix-tape, and a fortune cookie message that warns him against the pitfalls of relaxation (it reads: ‘You’ve had a good start. Work Harder!’). More than just objects of ephemera, they are participants in Mac’s artistic repertoire that act as both influence and raw material for his body of work.

Lehmann Maupin Gallery Presents Angel Otero at ISTANBUL’74

02/23/2012-03/17/2012
6pm-9pm

ngel Otero is a visual artist best known for his process-based paintings. While much of his works have been influenced by memories based in photographs and other family memorabilia combined with the gestures of 20th century painting, his latest works highlights the artist’s unique process as a form of narrative in itself. Through his innovative process of oil paint scraping, Otero venerates historical oil painting while confronting it head on. Otero’s ‘deformation’ approach to painting his works, first across glass and then once dry, flaying the dried paint and reconstructing the composition anew across large canvasses, is representative of how the artist perceives the process of reconfiguring both personal and historical narratives. Otero’s work sometimes uses process as a way of confronting deep, personal memories. Instead of representing his life through art, he archives moments within it by creating opportunities of surprise and discovery.

Marcia Hafif: Pomona Houses and Ink Drawings
http://www.npgallery.com/
02/23/2012-04/14/2012
6pm-8pm

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 23, 6-8pm Gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 11am-6pm The Ink Drawings were painted using a practice developed during the making of the Pencil Drawings, 1972, always beginning in the upper left corner and finishing in the lower right. The support and medium change while the technique remains the same. Here the ink mixture is more or less diluted, with darker and lighter results. The technique is based on the idea that repetition will produce changing results; the titles of the drawings are the date of completion – a record of the day’s work.

CECILIA VISSERS: ULTIMA THULE (THE FAR NORTH)
http://masterspelavin.com/upcoming/
02/23/2012-03/31/2012
6pm-8pm

Masters & Pelavin is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of recent sculptures by Dutch artist, Cecilia Vissers. Inspired by the landscape of ‘the far north’ of Scotland during a trip in 2011, Cecilia decided to focus on the cliffs and extreme edges of land, this is the most north-westerly point in mainland Britain. Isolated and dramatic. This work is an abstraction of the landscape, its purity, color and clear line. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery and in the US.

Allison Gildersleeve: Let Me Show It To You Unfixed
www.asyageisberggallery.com
02/23/2012-04/07/2012
6pm-8pm

February 23 – April 7, 2012 Opening Reception: Thursday February 23, 6 – 8 pm Artist Talk: Saturday March 10, 12 pm Starting with recycled drawings, photographs, and revisited childhood places, Allison Gildersleeve builds an increasing complexity – and like a visual puppetmaster, deftly orchestrates our eyes’ travel in perpetual motion. Rather than a passively-observed vista that reveals itself immediately, she aims to orient the viewer in a specific way. Then she allows the paint to swirl into a deliberate morass, forcing us to constantly lose the thread. Finding parallels in poets such as Wallace Stevens, Gildersleeve fights against a sense of order or stasis, and instead leaves borders undefined, odd juxtapositions of scale, vibrations of lush color and constant mark variation. We see a rock and just as soon have forgotten that cognition, as the patch of grey “rock” quickly erases into paint, movement, dab, or stroke. Often the most clarity is found in an unexpected corner or edge

THE NUDIST MUSEUM GIFT SHOP: ELLEN HARVEY
http://dodge-gallery.com/cgi-bin/DODGE?s=exhibitions&v=20121614673721738569463792
02/23/2012-04/01/2012
6pm-8pm

A museum is nothing without a gift shop. A museum without nudes is really no fun at all. This the best of all worlds: a museum attached to a gift shop with nothing but nudes. In her inaugural exhibition at DODGEgallery, Ellen Harvey offers several strangely beautiful and hilarious explorations of the art nude that both question and exploit our fascination with depictions of our naked bodies to create an intentionally contradictory and often incoherent model of art as a form of desire. These works which are part of Harvey’s ongoing Museum of Failure, explore the paradox that at a time when no one need resort to figure drawing classes to see naked members of either sex, the popular imagination still clings to the nude as one of the great subjects of art.

Michiel Ceulers
http://www.anacristeagallery.com/
02/23/2012-03/31/2012
11am-6pm

Ana Cristea Gallery is proud to present the first solo show in the United States of the Belgian artist Michiel Ceulers (born 1986). As an artist, Ceulers concentrates on the bare essentials of painting: canvases and wooden panels, paint and spray paint. Ceulers is entirely committed to painting as an ongoing art form, saying in an interview that painting “has been declared dead a few times, but still many people consider painting the most relevant medium.” Part of the impulse associated with the logic of chance the artist submits his canvases to can be seen as an attempt to move beyond from the boundaries of painterly tradition. As a result, the artworks’ origins are not only painterly, they are also conceptual. As stated in the artist’s own words, his “paintings are the result of events that form a chain reaction, so in a way they are larger than the canvases themselves – they are spatial.” Thus, true to himself, Ceulers maintains steady ground, balancing the idiosyncrasies of his pra

7PM-9PM

End of Century is pleased to announce, “That Old Time Religion,” an exhibition of work by Colin Ruel. Like manger scenes on a Christmas cards or a drawings in the Lascaux cave, Ruel has created an entire visual vocabulary for the cult of his imagination, influenced by shaman practices and catholic iconography. His subjects – Virgin Mary’s, Feather-haired Navajo Chiefs, and diving birds – save, sacrifice, misguide, and redeem, on salvaged wood, stretched denim, and rain gutters from Martha’s Vineyard. Opening Reception Friday, February 24th, 7-9 PM at End of Century, 237 Eldridge Street, New York, New York. DJ Set by Will Roan of Amazing Baby.

6pm-00pm

The Abrons Arts Center is pleased to announce On the Outer Edge, an exhibition by Spanish-born New York based artist PS3* Pedro Sanchez3 in the Upper Main Gallery. The artist presents a new video work in his full-scale model home designed for a life of deliberate deprivation. Based on Brazilian favelas and built from materials found in and around the Lower East Side, this continually adaptable structure participates in an international language of habitation. Dwellings like the one presented in this exhibition are a global response to poverty — usually inhabited by immigrants or slave workers in the suburbs of large cities in Brazil, Mexico, the Philippines, Morocco, and many other African and Asian countries.

6pm-00pm

Andres Bedoya’s performance installation Ultra Madre was originally presented at the Museo Nacional de Arte in La Paz, Bolivia, in 2009. Born of private mourning, the piece ultimately speaks of loss as a collective experience. Installed within the main arch of the museum’s patio, a steel and wood scaffold holding 57 women disrupted its architecture physically and functionally. For approximately one hour, participating women lay still with their long hair cascading down the 15-foot structure. In stark contrast to the hardness of the building, the body appeared soft, impermanent, and ephemeral.

2pm-7pm

Some nights I sit at home and sew and the hours fly by and I look at the clock and see it’s 2 am, time to go to bed. Using my hands has always been a big part of my existence- an art, a craft, a meditation. The exponential growth of technology has also spawned its antithesis – a revival of craft – an elevation of handiwork to a fine art.

Cindy Sherman

10:30am-5:30pm

Cindy Sherman (American, b. 1954) is widely recognized as one of the most important and influential artists in contemporary art. Throughout her career, she has presented a sustained, eloquent, and provocative exploration of the construction of contemporary identity and the nature of representation, drawn from the unlimited supply of images from movies, TV, magazines, the Internet, and art history. Working as her own model for more than 30 years, Sherman has captured herself in a range of guises and personas which are at turns amusing and disturbing, distasteful and affecting. To create her photographs, she assumes multiple roles of photographer, model, makeup artist, hairdresser, stylist, and wardrobe mistress. With an arsenal of wigs, costumes, makeup, prosthetics, and props, Sherman has deftly altered her physique and surroundings to create a myriad of intriguing tableaus and characters, from screen siren to clown to aging socialite.

Over the last two decades, geopolitical borders have shifted and new technologies have forged channels of communication around the world. Printed materials, in both innovative and traditional forms, have played a key role in this exchange of ideas and sources. This exhibition examines the evolution of artistic practices related to the print medium, from the resurgence of traditional printmaking techniques—often used alongside digital technologies—to the proliferation of self-published artists’ projects. Bringing together some 70 series or projects drawn substantially from MoMA’s extensive collection of prints and books, with the addition of several important loans, the exhibition features major artists and publishing projects, such as Ai Weiwei, Trisha Donnelly, Martin Kippenberger, Daniel Joseph Martinez, Lucy McKenzie, Aleksandra Mir, Museum in Progress, Edition Jacob Samuel, Thomas Schütte, SUPERFLEX, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Christopher Wool, among many others.

Eugène Atget: “Documents pour artistes”
http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1216?book
02/26/2012-04/09/2012
10:30am-5:30pm

This exhibition presents six fresh and highly focused cross sections through the career of master photographer Eugène Atget (French, 1857–1927), drawn exclusively from the Museum’s unparalleled holdings of his work. The sign outside Atget’s studio read, “Documents pour artistes,”—declaring his modest ambition to create images for other artists to use as source material. This humility belied the visual sophistication and distinctive vision that characterized much of Atget’s own work.

Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream
http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1230?book
02/26/2012-07/30/2012
10:30am-5:30pm

Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream is an exploration of new architectural possibilities for cities and suburbs in the aftermath of the recent foreclosure crisis. During summer 2011, five interdisciplinary teams of architects, urban planners, ecologists, engineers, and landscape designers worked in public workshops at MoMA PS1 to envision new housing and transportation infrastructures that could catalyze urban transformation, particularly in the country’s suburbs. Responding to The Buell Hypothesis, a research report prepared by the Buell Center at Columbia University, teams—lead by MOS, Visible Weather, Studio Gang, WORKac, and Zago Architecture—focused on a specific location within one of five “megaregions” across the country to come up with inventive solutions for the future of American suburbs. This installation presents the proposals developed during the architects-in-residence program, including a wide array of models, renderings, animations, and analytical materials.

Early Plays

8pm-10pm

The Wooster Group has invited Richard Maxwell of New York City Players to direct Eugene O’Neill’s early “Glencairn” plays—Bound East for Cardiff (1914), The Long Voyage Home (1917) and The Moon of the Caribbees (1918). Early Plays takes O’Neill’s tales of sailors on and off the ocean as a base to explore themes of longing and eternity. Dark episodes showing the underside of turn-of-the-century maritime life—brawls, dances and carousing—are staged with a quotidian grace allowing these simple stories to resonate emotionally.

SOLOWAY presents: Krypta by DRAOK
http://www.soloway.info/
02/26/2012-03/30/2012
6pm-8pm

Giorgio Guidi and Marta Pierobon formed Draok in 2010 to work collaboratively on shared interests including architecture, perception and social systems. Both Guidi and Peirobon have long been fascinated by the secretive and hidden: crypts, cults, ghosts and memories. Italian cities are built on the foundations of previous settlements–Etruscan, Roman and medieval–producing a stratification of civilizations. New buildings rise on the ruins of the old, burying earlier structures in rubble and debris. In Italian Catholicism there is a long tradition of covering and hiding the past; it is deeply embedded in the hierarchy of the church. Beneath the modern city lies the still present and living past and its treasures, relics, and corpses.

Ingredients of Reality: the dismantling of New York City
http://www.lantuazon.com/
02/28/2012-04/07/2012
7pm-9pm

Ingredients of Reality: the Dismantling of New York City by Lan Tuazon presents sculptures, drawings and prints that discuss how history, the law and class structures are written on the physical environment. Surrealist in concept, Tuazon takes real/existing parts of the built environment — including buildings, lots, and monuments – and creates a new reality against the repressive logic of property. The exhibition includes the presentation of two new works: Architectures of Defense and New York City Bar Graph, which paired with Tuazon’s Army Park and Parking Lot Landscape, present the city disassembled into parts and functions unveiling taxonomies of power reordered into new composite figures that render visible what reality has ceased to distinguish.

Liz Biddle, Regine Granne, and Katherine Tzu-lan Mann at A.I.R. Gallery
http://www.airgallery.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=main.artists&artistid=885
03/01/2012-03/24/2012
6pm-9pm

This exhibition showcases Biddle’s continuing interest in mixed media, with a twist of humor found in much of her work. Old wires, light bulbs, screws and other found objects protrude from holes in ceramic objects, while creature-like robots – strange, disturbing and endearing – appear in collages and drawings. Liberty is a contemplation of the present in the wake of 9/11. The Statue of Liberty itself simultaneously represents an overused icon and a diminishing concept. These works offer a means of viewing such images and enable reflection of our world, our nation, our politics, our person, our perspective, and our relationship to all. Mann’s large paintings in Root, created by combining chance stains with highly rendered decorative elements on oversized, un-stretched paper, function as human-sized portholes into a landscape alive with minute details, patterns and interlocking systems.

THE MODERN BEETHOVEN

0pm-0pm

Hear Beethoven the way Beethoven intended. Over three extraordinary weeks, conductor David Zinman leads the New York Philharmonic in his “exhilarating” (Gramophone magazine) approach to the masterpieces of Beethoven, revealing fresh vitality in the music. Performed with the brash vigor, passionate joy and raw pathos that Beethoven himself intended, these symphonies will sound bold, dramatic and new. You might call it modern; you’d certainly call it unforgettable. VENUE: Lincoln Center Avery Fisher Hall Check website for times.

In addition, the show will include a selection of significant works spanning Wood’s career that emphasize the social and environmental issues that have informed his works since the late 1950s.

Harriet Korman: New Paintings
http://lennonweinberg.com/current/current_1.html
03/01/2012-04/14/2012
00pm-00pm

Harriet Korman’s last solo exhibition of new work took place at the gallery in 2008. She has continued to focus on color and shape in new paintings that attain a decisive and brilliant clarity. Basing the compositions on line drawings, Korman uses the location of the lines as boundaries between colors, and selects individual unblended pigments for the resulting shapes. She exposes each color’s intrinsic qualities of hue, brightness, transparency, and texture through the juxtaposition of related or contrasting colors and a deceptively casual paint application. Diagonals that slice across the mostly four by five foot canvasses give rise to an interesting reverse symmetry; horizontals and verticals further divide wedges into triangles and polygons. In the end, Korman achieves a shifting dominance between whole and divided shapes through the purposeful selection and arrangement of color.

Heathens

03/01/2012-03/18/2012
3pm-8pm

Set on an isolated farm in eastern Kentucky, Heathens is an unsettling comedy that makes the term “family values” take on new meanings. When a wandering laborer follows a woman home for the night, he finds a lot more than he bargained for in the home she shares with her sister and her Mamaw. The play explores mourning, faith, and the dangers of isolation as the characters do battle with themselves and each other. Wednesday – Sunday, March 1 – 18 Wednesday – Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 3pm Additional Performances Saturday, March 3 at 3pm

This is Ruwedel’s second solo exhibition with the Gallery, which presented his first New York show, Westward the Course of Empire, in 2009. The exhibition will present the artist’s recent projects in the western United States, focusing on the collision of promise and reality. The photographs, primarily of homes and landscapes, were made in the desert regions surrounding Los Angeles, from the western Mojave Desert to the Salton Sea region, as well as in Utah and on a small island in British Columbia.

ART EXHIBITION – THE BEAUTY OF JAPAN – TOMIKO KATO

Corinne Wasmuht
http://www.petzel.com/exhibitions/2012-01-12_joyce-pensato/
03/01/2012-04/28/2012
6pm-8pm

Wasmuht is widely known for her large-scale, multi-layered oil paintings. Her work derives from an array of pictorial inventions, culminating in an aesthetic tension that aims to reconcile what the artist refers to as the “dualism of modernism,” a melding of representational and abstract structures in painting. The paintings’ images are generated from an array of abstracted and overlapping photographic imagery that Wasmuht sources from a combination of the Internet and her own personal photographs. The images, both appropriated and her own, mine daily life, nature, science and art, fusing into staged abstracted productions. As Wasmuht describes her process, “In a film, one image is followed by another, whereas I pile the images up on top of one another.” Above all, her labor-intensive painting technique characterizes her work.

Eat Peter to Feed Paul by John Felix Arnold III and Christopher Burch
http://www.littlefieldnyc.com/exhibit/
03/01/2012-03/31/2012
-

John Felix Arnold’s drawings and mixed media pieces combine a fine art aesthetic with a stylistic execution that’s intentionally derivative of graphic novels and comics. Equally influenced by this subversive genre of literature, modern dance, and his father’s collection of modern and abstract art, Arnold layers imagery with commentary to create a hybrid reality that references his synthesized human experience and aims to inform people of an ever hurtling machine that they are being wrapped inside of that is eating away at their humanity, yet seemingly cannot live without.

The Ungovernables
http://www.newmuseum.org/exhibitions/448/the_ungovernables

-

The 2012 New Museum Triennial will feature thirty-four artists, artist groups, and temporary collectives—totaling over fifty participants—born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, many of whom have never before exhibited in the US. The exhibition title, “The Ungovernables,” takes its inspiration from the concept of “ungovernability” and its transformation from a pejorative term used to describe unruly “natives” to a strategy of civil disobedience and self-determination. “The Ungovernables” is meant to suggest both anarchic and organized resistance and a dark humor about the limitations and potentials of this generation.

EMERGING FEMALE ABSTRACTIONISTS: Lauren Luloff
http://www.hortongallery.com/
03/01/2012-03/31/2012
-

Lauren Luloff’s recent collage paintings bring to mind the sky, the worn floor of a textile mill, tea in an old porcelain cup and laundry drying in the sun. Her process is simple: first she stretches semi transparent fabric over stretcher bars, then glues swatches of fabrics and paints on this “ground”. Nothing is hidden and everything is revealed. The process, laid bare, yields something mysterious; the work becomes hazy and atmospheric, like dawn or a memory of childhood. The fabrics simultaneously root and dislocate the painted colors, like Matisse who famously always painted with scraps of printed fabrics hanging around his studio.

Bobbi Beck has exhibited her artworks at five New York City Public Libraries. She now travels to the Grand Central Library Branch for another exhibition. Included are many new drawings rendered with vibrant colors. The drawings are autobiographical and reflect her day-to-day observations and feelings. They convey her emotional and visual renderings of humor, love, gender conflicts, marriage, family, health, joy and sorrow, anguish and global issues.

http://www.nypl.org/events/exhibitions/birth-promotion-inventing-film-publicity-silent-film-era

-

The evolution of motion pictures from invention to art form has spanned the century. The basic elements of the promotion and distribution of film were established in the silent-film era. This exhibition focuses on the develoment of those elements — posters, promotional magazines, advertising, and exploitation campaigns — from pre-cinema to the transition to sound film. The gallery visitor will be able to view posters, programs, advertisements, and lobby cards that were shown to the public from 1890 to 1930, as well as original gouache designs for posters, including an early, pro-Union sketch for Birth of a Nation. Also on view are things that the public was never supposed to see — periodicals, calendars, and exploitation sheets giving advice to theater owners and managers on publicity, advertising, and retail tie-ins for films starring Theda Bara, Lillian Gish, Corinne Griffith, Harold Lloyd, Pola Negri, Mary Pickford, Ben Turpin, Rudolph Valentino, and many others.

Peter Tunney // Skull Session

-

Opening Receptions: Wednesday, March 14, 6-10pm Thursday, March 15, 6-10pm In the latter half of the 2000s, skull iconography experienced a massive cultural renaissance. Alexander McQueen, arguably the most influential designer of the last twenty years, adopted the skull as his brand trademark in the early 2000s; reproducing it on everything from scarves to jeweled clutches. Meanwhile, in 2007, British enfant terrible Damien Hirst sent shockwaves through the art world when he sold a diamond-encrusted human skull for $122 million dollars. Gradually, throughout the course of the 2000s, skulls shed their more macabre, foreboding implications and became widely accepted as signifiers of not only dark luxury and good taste but of the precariousness and preciousness of human existence.

Cut and Paste at Muriel Guépin Gallery curated by rhv fine art
http://www.murielguepingallery.com/
03/02/2012-04/15/2012
6:30-8pm

Although the process of collage has been around for millennia it was George Braques and Pablo Picasso who, in the early 20th century, made the act of cutting and pasting disperate elements of paper, cardboard, string or basically whatever into works of fine art. This marked the beginning of a mash-up between “high” and “low” culture that would eventually occupy an enormous movement in contemporary art. RHV Fine Art has selected three artists, James Cullinane, Sharon Lawless and Andrew Zarou, from it’s exceptional roster of artists, each of whom uses the technique of collage in different ways and to different ends. March 2 – April 15, 2012 Opening reception: Friday, March 2, 6:30 – 8pm

Photography and Ruin
http://www.nypl.org/events/exhibitions/photography-and-ruin
03/02/2012-03/06/2012

Photographs, often characterized as frozen moments in time, are in truth physical objects in perpetual transition, born of a medium that is itself thought to be disappearing. Created by light falling on photosensitive surfaces, photographs begin as passing instants that continue to evolve as they materialize as images. Even when fixed or printed, photographs remain susceptible to change due to internal flaws, artistic intervention, or environmental factors. As objects in flux from the moment of inception, photographs are like ruins, or fragments of time. Traces and remnants of the past, they are simultaneously stable and transient, present and absent.

Heide Fasnacht: Loot
http://www.kentfineart.net/exhibitions/main.html
03/02/2012-04/21/2012
-

Since 2008 Heide Fasnacht has been exploring landscapes of cultural destruction and in the process has recovered images long dormant and silent. Against our social climate, marked as it is by an inability to face history, Fasnacht takes on the challenge of excavating the past as she examines the fate of cultural artifacts in times of conflict. She begins in medias res, figuratively and literally, and assembles arrays of things stolen, hoarded, lost, recovered, and demolished as a result of war. Fasnacht draws on multiple sources, including the Nazi’s confiscation of art and treasure, the Allies’ bombing of Monte Cassino, looting and damage at the Umm al-Aqarib archaeological site in Iraq following the US invasion, the methodical looting of treasure by Japanese forces in WWII, Japanese internment camps in the US, the Taliban’s destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas, the London Blitz, the TET offensive, the Monuments Men, and the Rubble Women.

David Krut Projects is pleased to present Print Me, the first exhibition dedicated to Chakaia Booker’s prints. Booker began collaborating with Master Printer, Phil Sanders, of Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop in 2009, and has created over 100 unique prints to date. The title of the exhibition, Print Me, refers to the collaborative dialogue between Booker and Sanders, in which Booker would leave hand written notes for Sanders once her compositions were finished and ready to print. This exhibition features a selection of these collaborative prints, which highlight Booker’s investigation of the two-dimensional framework through experimental print media.

Gilges channels the tropes of portrait, design, and fashion photography into an enigmatic idiom that both discloses and holds onto its secrets.

This March, Causey Contemporary is pleased to present Mesmer Eyes, a solo exhibition by Kathy Goodell. Sculpture and drawing, Goodell’s most familiar forms, are utilized as physical accents within Mesmer Eyes, the tactile qualities leading one from nature to the metaphysical. Mesmer Eyes is characteristic of Goodell’s meditative approach to space, time and consciousness, while optimizing her interests in light and prismatic color to create a hypnotic effect, allowing the tangible to meet the abstract. This will be the first solo exhibition by Ms. Goodell at the gallery, which will include a large-scale, interactive painting installation, aqueous pigment print photographs, sculptures and drawings from 2011-2012.

OPENING RECEPTION 2 MARCH, 6 – 8 PM Evans examines the processes of making art — the generation of ideas and materials, their transformation from one to the other, and the many varied states in between. For this exhibition, he will present paintings, sculptures, photographs, and a sound piece in an all-encompassing environment. The wall paintings and collage environments of past installations, such as timecompressionmachine from Greater New York 2010 at MoMA PS1, have been collapsed by the artist and transferred to the surface of large-scale canvases. Mundane materials such as artist’s tape that previously played a key role as a barrier, frame, and drawing tool, are carefully recreated as trompe l’oeil representations, as the use of actual tape in the final compositions diminishes.

RADIATOR GALLERY presents TOGETHER AGAIN

03/02/2012-03/20/2012
-

Opening: March 2, 6 – 9PM Special event: March 9, 6 -9PM The show’s title is based on a piece by Vikenti Komitski, which presents an intriguing world map whose continents have come together in a single, interconnected body. Is this restored Panguea, a Utopian island or a new world order? Is it the result of natural disaster or of carefully engineered forces of globalization? “Together Again” is charged with both contradiction and potential, fueled by a Romantic sentiment that togetherness/ solidarity is still possible. The show is immersed in the “ideal,” presenting artistic gestures that push beyond a possible yet desirable future. Landscape is a recurring motif, behind which lie attempts to observe and contemplate, efforts either enhanced or mediated by technology. This detour back into nature is interrupted by an accelerating tension between nature and culture. Thus is formed the overall arch among these artists’ exercises in Utopia.

Studio10 is pleased to announce Scissors, Paper, Glue and Books I Can’t Cut Up,an exhibition of new work by the Brooklyn-based artist Tim Spelios. Spelios’s original source materials become the means to mine obscure connections and create irrational associations through juxtapositions of images and objects. The obsolete materials he collects include flyers, books, magazines, trade catalogs and manuals which are often found at flea markets, second hand book shops or on the street. Spelios has a particular wonderment in the printed matter with the covers torn, important pages removed or defaced. Performances in association with the exhibition: March 10, 7:30 – 10:00 pm March 24, 7:30 – 10:00 pm

Opening Reception, Friday March 2, 6-9 pm INTERSTATE PROJECTS is pleased to present The Remaster Cycle, Jesse Hulcher’s first solo exhibition in New York. Through a wide range of digital and analog mediums, Hulcher explores the ways that corporate media influences how we view such disparate cultural experiences as the Vietnam war, Groundhog Day, and the Grateful Dead, among others. With Groundhog Days – or – Same Shit, Same Day, Hulcher has written a custom DVD script that alters the playback of 1993’s Groundhog Day, dictating that the central portion of the film devolves into an endless loop, rendering it a more realistic depiction of Phil Connor’s experiences in Punxsutawny, PA. Staying within the medium of mass market film, The Vietnam Experience – or – Same Shit, Different Song, the viewer is presented with a distallation of the entertainment industries cinematic representation of the Vietnam War thoughout the previous four decades.

Dark Pop 4
http://www.lastritesgallery.com/darkpop_4.php
03/03/2012-04/08/2012
7pm-11pm

Last Rites Gallery, for the fourth consecutive year, presents the “Dark Pop 4″ group art exhibition guest curated by Gary Pressman (director of Copro Gallery). Artists are asked to create One piece that is truly considered ‘Dark Art’. Many artists find themselves in the groove of creating a certain mood or emotion through their work and have, understandably, become quite comfortable following this path in their art-making. At Last Rites Gallery we want to break that mold and challenge artists to create a piece that searches through new or buried feelings and emotions. The artist’s will let go of the light and allow the dark to thrive, as pop takes on a new form.

THE POP-UP MUSEUM Opening!

8pm-

THE POP-UP MUSEUM of the Gowanus Canal March 3 – April 22, 2012 Opening Reception: 8:00 PM, Saturday, March 3rd Tumblr: http://gowanuslab.tumblr.com/ A museum’s mission involves the categorization, preservation, and contextualization of objects within a finite space. The Pop-Up Museum is designed to function as the inverse of these practices, bringing together a set of local, “unremarkable” objects that then become art or serve as a springboard for art that references them. Through the playful contextualization and re-contextualization of these objects, we will redefine the museum—both what a museum looks like, physically, and what it does, culturally. Specifically, we will work with found materials from all around the Gowanus neighborhood to create a new “history” of the region and its traditions (a not entirely serious one).

MOLLY SMITH TIDAL
http://www.katewerblegallery.com/
03/03/2012-04/14/2012
6pm-8pm

Molly Smith’s second solo show at Kate Werble Gallery addresses the artist’s personal response to the impermanence and cycles of change within the world. The works in this exhibition are purposely unfixed and mutable; they lean, balance, rest or hang precariously, suggesting the possibility of further transformation. Playing with varied heights and angles, Smith’s sculptures intersect one another across sightlines. Along one wall, strips of painted and cut paper are reassembled to span the thirty-five foot length, creating an undulating panorama. As they reference one another with recurrent materials, gestures and objects, the works suggest changing states. In the windows of the gallery, rotating displays show various combinations of a landscape painting, a photograph, and collected ephemera. These displays change daily to reflect how looking, seeing and making are part of Smith’s everyday.

JOHN ALMANZA AND DAVE HARDY
http://www.reginarex.org/
03/03/2012-04/08/2012
7pm-10pm

The paintings of John Almanza and the sculptures of Dave Hardy reflect the reckless abandon of progress, with an emphasis on looking at how materials get relegated to the side as other forces push forward. Indulging in the abundances available to them, both artists consider excess and overflow as vital to the physicality and construction of their work. Almanza’s viscous oil paintings rely on a process of application and removal of paint. While the paintings are still wet, he traverses the canvas with a thin strip of plywood—simultaneously scraping away paint with the swipe of a line and adding paint that is carried across on the plywood. This forms a pattern of hard parallel lines that reveals underlying ghosted abstractions perpetually in limbo. Hardy’s sculptures of found glass, foam and an assortment of other materials build tension from the interplay between hard and soft edges. Engineered to confound notions of structural integrity, these works borrow from the urgent language of p

Speakeasy Dollhouse
http://www.speakeasydollhouse.com/

7:30pm-

Inspired by Lee’s miniature crime scene sets, von Buhler decided to create the scenes from her family mystery using her own handmade sets and dolls. Utilizing evidence from autopsy reports, police records, court documents, and interviews, she has built a dollhouse-sized speakeasy, a hospital room, a child’s bedroom, and a pre-war apartment. She also created lifelike dolls with moveable limbs to live in these sets. Taking it to another level, von Buhler has now created an immersive theatrical experience to go along with the sets and her own investigation. The play stages these events in mobster Meyer Lansky’s former Lower East Side speakeasy. The location is elaborately set up to mirror the dollhouse sets from the book. The play’s tagline is “The speakeasy is our dollhouse and the actors are our dolls.”

THIS IS DCP

Since its inception 25 years ago, Film Forum’s repertory screen has presented classic films in the best possible 35mm prints, premiering nearly 1,000 new prints and restorations along the way. (On this calendar alone, you’ll find forty-five 35mm prints, ten of them spanking new). While we’re more than ever committed to showing classic films on film, the tremendous advances being made in transferring classics to DCP (Digital Cinema Package), the industry standard, just can’t be ignored. The best DCPs scan original negatives at such a high rate that all of the attributes of a photochemically-produced 35mm (or even 70mm) print — the detail, color density, film grain, etc. — are vividly re-created and even exceeded. But is watching a DCP the same experience as watching a film print? The jury is still out, so for this one-week series, we’ve chosen the crème de la crème of classics on DCP and have invited Sony Pictures’ Grover Crisp.

From nameless nudes to portraits of monarchs, the figure in art has served to codify power. So have art objects, splitting viewer from viewed. Our figures have agency. Our work empowers viewers as complicit participants, as centers of process and experience. We complicate and push against dichotomies and hierarchies: self/other, rural/urban, black/white, perpetrator/victim, family/stranger, performer/observer. We are four artists who met through NYFA’s MARK program. We quickly found common ground in our disparate uses of the figure at intersections of the social/political/personal.

Rachel Uffner Gallery is pleased to present a show of new work by Sam Moyer. For her second solo show at the gallery, Moyer will exhibit pieces that continue her examination of the liminal space between the two- and three-dimensional, albeit in a larger, more imposing scale than her work has explored before. In paintings that hover on the edge of sculpture, and sculpture that hovers on the edge of painting, Moyer recalls the rigorous language of mid-20th-century minimalist art, but also the modest, playful and scattershot material processes of home design projects.

Unconventional Tableaux
http://afanyc.com/lin-esser/event-press-release/
03/04/2012-03/20/2012
-

Lin Esser’s new exhibition, “Unconventional Tableaux,” began, in part, as an effort to replace a Dia de los Muertos box lost during childhood. Further inspired by the eccentric subjects of English symbolism, sinister figures of the renaissance and the anthropomorphic tableaux of Victorian naturalism, Esser soon found himself caught up in the creation of an entire body of three-dimensional works that he later began calling “tableaux.” His dark introspective vision and extensive experience with film and theater lend a sense of the dramatic to these macabre yet playful narratives about the joys and sorrow of everyday life and beyond.

In 1998, a young college student at the University of Wyoming, Matthew Shepard was beaten, tied to a fencepost and left to die by two men of similar age. After, the nature of the crime was revealed to be from hate and fear of homosexuality. A national debate ensued in America that painfully endures to this day. As the tragic events exploded all over the national media, a group of New York City based actors and writers, the Tectonic Theater Project, known for their unique style and view, were intrigued and went to Laramie, Wyoming to study the impact of these events and the result is the Heights’ March production of The Laramie Project.

Opening Reception for Yi Zhou’s solo exhibition Underworlds Rising and John O’Reilly’s solo exhibition I stand and look at them long and long. Underworlds Rising is Yi Zhou’s first solo exhibition in the United States. The exhibition is built around Zhou’s 2010 short film The Greatness , a 3-D animated film inspired by Dante’s pilgrimage in The Divine Comedy set to a soundtrack produced in collaboration with Ennio Morricone. The film begins with a Grecian vase, modeled after Pharrell Williams’ head, shattering into pieces. Underworlds Rising will include the film alongside new film stills, drawings and sculptures referencing objects and figures featured in the film.John O’Reilly was recently included in RH Gallery’s 2011 summer exhibition, Contemporary Clay, which was featured in The New York Times and Art In America. This exhibition will include recent sculptures depicting animals which embody the illusion of breath and experience. O’Reilly’s sculptures are modeled in clay and then cast in resin infused with particles of porcelain, bone and graphite.

Or maybe your biggest fear is choking alone in your apartment like Liz Lemon? If you’re a New Yorker living on your own, you’re actually not alone. More Americans are living alone today than ever before. There are currently 31 million adults (1 in every 7) going solo. And according to a recent study, nearly half of all U.S. adults are single—a record high. This is not simply a trend. It represents the biggest demographic shift since the baby boom. Join Eric Klinenberg, Kate Bolick, and Daniel Smith in discussing the struggles, the benefits, and the shared experiences of going solo.

Featuring the projects of 23 curators, the show will abandon the traditional focus on galleries – offering a “break” from the typical art fair model – and showcase a range of New York City’s curatorial voices, all surrounding a single exhibition theme – Apocalist: A Brief History of The End. Utilizing over 20 classrooms, hallways, and unique areas in one of the city’s oldest schoolhouses, new art works will be on display, arranged by curators representing the more recent creative contributions of the Lower East Side, Williamsburg, Gowanus, and Bushwick. Apocalist, the inaugural fair’s curatorial theme as described by Andrew Gori and Ambre Kelly, the co-founders of The They Co. and SPRING/BREAK Art Show, ‘aims to elucidate the sense of direction, disorder, celebration, or disdain generated by real or invented global or personal assumptions of calamity.’

FROHAWK TWO FEATHERS: IT’S YOURS: WARS OF THE FRENGLISH REVOLUTION AND OTHER CONFLICTS 1782–1797

Morgan Lehman Gallery is pleased to announce, “It’s Yours: Wars of the Frenglish Revolution and Other Conflicts 1782 – 1797”. This is the first New York solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Frohawk Two Feathers. Two Feathers’ intricate ink and tea-stained portraits on paper bring to life his complex historical narrative detailing the colonial uprisings against the imagined 18th-century superpowers Frengland and Fenoscandia. Using actual historic events as points of departure, Two Feathers creates fantastical riffs on Europe’s colonial past, revealing how that history plays out in the cultural and political complexities and neo-colonial global conflicts of the contemporary world.

When Jessica Pernikoff told her friend, Brent Arnold, that she wanted to make a video for one of his songs last year, Brent said “ok, sure” but had no idea what to expect. Turns out Jessica wanted to use that footage of Brent playing cello in a freezing parking garage to make him into an international superstar! Jessica, along with her husband Daniel, put in a lot of time and skill, and even despite Brent’s natural aversion to seeing himself on camera, and the results are fantastic.

8pm-11pm

The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story – and The Moth’s directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it.

6pm-8pm

The exhibition is made up of three videos projected together with objects found along the harbors. “The tide acts like a giant centrifuge,” writes the artist, “reorganizing things according to their shape and density”. In “collaboration” with the tide, Lorenz makes a record of these objects by printing, casting, or videotaping them. Each video was shot from an apparatus connected to the body of the artist and to the boat while en route from Barren Island to her home in Bushwick. This same geographical path is shown three different ways: from a birds-eye view of the artist, at the horizon line and along the shifting contour of the land.

6pm-9pm

FEATURING WORKS BY: AURORA PELLIZZI / WILLIAM RAHILLY / CELIA ROWLSON-HALL Curated by: Curação Calymayor The artists in this exhibition provide a valuable viewpoint to the themes of tension between the past and future. Treatments of cultural memory suggest a foreign space, re-framing the relation between content and consciousness inevitably influenced by the scientific, technological, and social awareness of a dissatisfied present. Aurora Pellizzi and her Greenscreen series is a set of monochromatic, volumetric and freestanding paintings and projections that use surface texture, light and darkness to create images. The title refers to the evenly lit green backdrop used in video, where the backdrop is digitally removed and replaced by another layer of image (cut-out). The slime-green hue is tropical and Martian, natural and digital. These landscapes are the dis-embodied space of abstraction.

There are a few choice examples of pop cultural relics that reach such squirmingly exquisite depths that they—like the shaggy-dog “dig through the core of the planet to China”—improbably invert their critical standing and ascend to an unstable pinnacle of flashing-popping brilliance. With its stream-of-consciousness plot, Escher and Dalí-influenced sets, and hands-down freaky musical numbers, Dr. Seuss’s The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. is the champeen. Ted Geisel was inspired to write this (no other term for it) revenge fantasy by recalling the piano lessons he’d endured as a boy “from a man who rapped my knuckles with a pencil whenever I made a mistake… I made up my mind I would get even with that man.” Enter the foppish and maniacal Dr. Terwilliker, an authoritarian piano teacher who seduces willing moms to entrust their sons to him, imprisons them in his barb-wired “Institute,” then forces the boys to play his Seussian, snake-shaped piano—his “5,000 Fingers.”

Christopher Henry Gallery is proud to present Ironic Icons II by New York artist William Anthony. Ironic Icons II is Anthony’s fourth exhibit with the gallery, which expands on his trademark pseudo-naive drawing style, along with his penchant for reinterpreting allegorical scenes and art historical references. In the spirit of Hollywood sequels, the exhibition is replete with depictions of popular action-adventure masculine subjects such as pirates, cowboys, and gladiators. Anthony exploits, to great effect, the full range of iconographies as a vehicle for his refreshing satires.

Greed, war-lust, and sexual enslavement lead to a subtle but growing resistance and whistle-blowing.

10 am-6 pm

Jason McCoy Gallery presents the first NY solo exhibition of German artist Christiane Löhr (b. 1965), featuring sculptures, works on paper, and a site-specific installation. Löhr works with organic materials⎯ivy seeds, plant stalks, tree blossoms, and horsehairs⎯arranging them into elaborate geometric constructs. By organizing single elements into intimately scaled volumetric forms, Löhr derives at a unified entity that exudes harmony and tranquility. Her work encourages focused observation, and when studied closely, pays homage to the wealth and delicacy of detail found in nature. In that sense, Löhr provides a pedestal for the often overlooked and yet omni-present remnants of environmental organisms. Carefully installed, these objects of nature further engage in a dialogue with architecture. Seen outside their natural context and carefully installed in manmade spaces, they gain an iconic presence and clarity. Löhr lives and works in Cologne and Prato, Italy

Founding editor of WhitehotMagazine.com, Noah Becker is a curator, writer, artist and jazz musician, and contributes to Art in America, Interview Magazine, Canadian Art and The Huffington Post. “This exhibition shows an aspect of high quality work being produced in Europe and North America in our time. The idea of artists being automatically connected in some way is a fallacy fed to us subliminally and linearly. Art history is wound together with globalism through the mass distribution of images and imagery delivered in a linear digital mold. Much of what is documented in two-dimensional artistic practice is fed to the public in a manner that has a host of attached biases. The presumption of a common thread is an attitude propagated by linear thinking as linear thinking is part of everything we do now. In relation to contemporary art, the non-linear holds an important place.

Working together in Soriano’s studio for the past several months the two artists used a “call & response” approach to their collaboration: An area was demarcated, an object was positioned, a relief mounted, a picture added, another object placed, an image framed. Coupling various aspects of their divergent working methods elements were amended and a scenario was thereby roughed out. This This scenario was further explored and expanded upon in the space of the gallery. Spray-painted diagrams, found images, fabricated objects and a modular presentation system conjoin in an installation that is at once familiar and digressive, reflective and oblique.

AFL-CIO’s Secret War against Developing Country Workers Solidarity or Sabotage?

The principles of trade unionism are based on working people acting together in solidarity with each other, to improve wages, working conditions, and life for themselves and all others. In its most developed forms, this extends not only to the worker next to you, but to working people all around the world. Some of the foremost proponents of these principles in the United States since the 1880s has been the American Federation of Labor (AFL), then later the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO), and since their merger in 1955, the AFL-CIO.
