Arts For Art, Inc. presents the 16th annual Vision Festival, New York City’s premier multidisciplinary celebration of innovative jazz music, dance, poetry, and art, held for its third year at the Abrons. Critics have described it as “arguably the most important free-jazz fest in the U.S.” (Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader), and stated that “avant-garde jazz culture has no better colloquy in this country than the Vision Festival” (Nate Chinen, The New York Times).
Each year, the Vision Festival honors the achievements of one living artist who has greatly influenced the world around them and paved the way for other innovators to move forward. On Wednesday, June 8, Arts For Art and The Vision Festival will celebrate a Lifetime of Achievement by Peter Brotzmann. This great improviser was one of the first practitioners of the Free Jazz movement in Europe. Brotzmann has programmed his own evening in such a way that it would reflect his ongoing pursuit of musical innovation. This 70-year-old artist is not interested in looking back — only in looking forward and being as creative as possible in the present.

Erected in the courtyard of Liggett Hall during Governors Island’s summer festivities, Burble Bupis a pavilion of two parts. The first part, a dome, is made from individual custom-designed components (Bups) with a unique morphology that allows them to be connected together in a variety of ways. Their articulated, bloated and textured limbs provide a sticky connection to join neighboring Bups. The other portion of the pavilion is a landscape zone that gently rises to provide privacy and structural support for the dome.
Burble Bup is sustainable in many ways: some materials are to be recycled; others will be reused. Bittertang anticipates that the non-toxic inflatables will be reused as floating toys at various NYC pools after the summer season ends. The fabric used for the soil tubes will be composted. The Pampas Grass and soil filling the tubes will be distributed to other landscape projects on the island. All of the materials were chosen for their ability to enhance our surroundings after their deployment in the pavilion.
ABOUT THE DESIGNERS
Antonio Torres and Michael Loverich started Bittertang at first glance in the halls of Perloff, UCLA, in 2005. Since then, they have been working together to create anamorphic and neotenous projects ranging from living aquaculture orbs, stuffed animals, piñatas, and sukkahs. In 2010, Ubaldo Arenas began to collaborate with Bittertang to further create humorous and pleasurable spaces. Currently, Bittertang operates out of New York City and Guadalajara.
In 2010, Bittertang received the League Prize for Young Architects and Designers by the Architectural League and was also selected as 1 of 12 finalists to build a sukkah for Sukkah City in Union Square. A duplicate sukkah was also built in Tel Aviv. Their work has also been published in various magazines and books.
The Burble Bup Design Team includes: Antonio Torres, Michael Loverich, Ubaldo Arenas, Claire Vitto, Adriana Del Muro, Fabien Rondeau, Cesar Ruiz, and Diego Ascencio.
Engineers: Martin Stroble and Thang Le, Severud Associates.
Project Mentor: Rob Rogers, FAIA.
ABOUT THE COMPETITION
For a second year, FIGMENT joined forces with The Emerging New York Architects Committee of the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter (ENYA) and the Structural Engineers Association of New York (SEAoNY) to co-host a competition to design and install an architectural pavilion for the 2011 summer season on Governors Island. The City of Dreams Pavilion is to be a temporary gathering place for people to meet, learn about the arts programs on the island, enjoy a planned or impromptu performance or lecture, and experience the interaction of art and the historic context of Governors Island.
Instead of a typical design competition, the City of Dreams Pavilion asked entrants to consider how they would design this temporary installation in the most efficient and sustainable way possible. In the end, the goal was to create a pavilion that has net zero impact and that serves as a prototype for a new, truly sustainable, way of thinking about design and construction.
Our jurors for the 2011 City of Dreams Pavilion competition were: Yolande Daniels, Principal, Studio SUMO; Vanessa Kassabian, AIA, LEED AP, Design Director, Snohetta; Jing Liu, Principal, SO-IL; Milton Puryear, Co-Founder of Brooklyn Greenway Initiative; Ada Tolla, Int’l Assoc. AIA; Richard Tomasetti, PE, Hon. AIA, Chairman & Co-founder Thornton Tomasetti; Kristin Marting, Artistic Director, HERE; and Rob Rogers, FAIA, Principal of Rogers Marvel and a juror in the 2010 competition, who will serve as a design mentor to the winning design team.

The Literary Debutante Ball: April 29, 2011
A Celebration of Emerging Writers
|When:||Friday, April 29, 2011, 7pm – 11pm|
|Where:||The Invisible Dog Art Center
51 Bergen St. (between Smith St. & Court St.)
Brooklyn, NY 11201
The Literary Debutante Ball is a benefit that celebrates One Story magazine, the publication of our debutantes, and honors one writer who has been an exceptional mentor to others. The ball will feature specialty cocktails, music, dancing, and a silent art auction.
The highlight of the benefit will be the formal “presentation” of One Story authors who have published their debut books in the past year:
Robin Black, If I Loved You I Would Tell You This (Random House)
Susanna Daniel, Stiltsville (HarperCollins)
Seth Fried, The Great Frustration (Soft Skull Press)
Jerry Gabriel, Drowned Boy (Sarabande Books)
Jim Hanas, Why They Cried (ECW Press)
Each writer will be escorted by an established author and/or editor who has been a mentor to them. This year, One Story will also honor the novelist and memoirist Dani Shapiro, for her years of extraordinary support of emerging writers.
All proceeds will benefit One Story, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and aid it in its mission to support the art form of the short story and the authors who write them. Tickets for the ball start at $50 each. Higher level individual, corporate, and in-kind sponsorships are available and most welcome. For complete details and benefits of donating to One Story, contact Maribeth Batcha at email@example.com. No one under 21 years old will be admitted.

WEDNESDAY APRIL 27 / 8PM
At last! John Ashbery’s translation of French poet Arthur Rimbaud’s final masterpiece before abandoning poetry at the age of 21, Illuminations (Norton, 2011) has been published. Ashbery’s rendering of all forty-four poems powerfully evokes the kaleidoscopic beauty of the original and creates “a vision of postdiluvian freshness” out of “the chaos of ice floes and the polar night.” This is a major literary event and we are going to celebrate it with poets and musicians Edwin Torres, Anne Tardos, Nicole Peyrafitte, Franklin Bruno, David Shapiro, Bree Brenton, Julie Patton, Madeline Gins, Richard Hell, Evi Jundt, Anna Williams andSharon Mesmer.

Peaks Island, Maine, 2002
Description: The room is set up as laboratory / hospital with various electronic and medical devices set up on tables, along with test tubes, IV bags, beakers and surgical equipment. In the center of the room is the GORILLA, chained down to a stretcher covered in white fabric. In the lab is DR. BARON VON BANANA, who is using the equipment to try to re-animate the lifeless gorilla. As he shocks, injects and operates on the GORILLA, it occasionally spasms, wakes, roars and attacks the DR., who then beats it down with his clipboard.

PICTURE BERLIN, founded in 2009, is a hybrid residency/art academy. The program is designed for emerging artists working and using the medium of photography. This past summer marked our first Summer Session, which was extremely successful – with artists representing 8 countries, putting together 2 exhibitions and creating new bodies of work that far exceeded each artist’s expectations. Ultimately PICTURE BERLIN did what any residency should do – it pulled out the best in each artist.

What Is Dalikrab Day ?
Dalikrab Day is rather unique in that it’s a floating holiday without limitations. It has no rules, no traditions, and no rituals. There are no goals, and there is no point or reasoning behind Dalikrab day. It is an idea. This idea is insanity. What impulses drive the dadaist and fringe artist. It’s about immersing yourself in yourself. Dalikrab Day is about that spark within us that explodes out through our art. It’s not about pride or ego its about Lego’s dipped in chocolate. It’s about standing on top of an open umbrella in a downpour.
Dalikrab Day is a celebration of insanity.
How DALIKRAB DAY Works:
The essence of Dalikrab Day is very simple. Create. Manipulate. Repeat.
[ CREATE ] a piece(s) of art, text, music, video and email or blog it or both to the group or the blog. Everyone else should be doing this. [ MANIPULATE ] another’s art, as inspired demands into something different. Then send back around and then [REPEAT]. How many times you do this cycle is entirely up to you. Do it once, do it every time, or just create or just watch. This will go on until there are consecutives days of no activity. So don’t delay there may not be time later. Who knows what will happen.
The Inner Circle: The Inner circle are who were last years participants and those who signed up to participate before March 31st. This group is the core who are directly send each other their creations and their manipulations of the art, text, music and video traveling back and forth.
The Outter Circle: For those who did not make it into the inner circle before the beginning of Dalikrab Day. Not to worry you can post directly to the blog as well as work with all materials generated from the inner circle. I will, personally try to watch for these an send them through the inner circle.
Also Dalikrab Day can be celebrated on or off the internet; alone or with a group. How ever you want to celebrate it is entirely up to you. If you do have a party or a performance or whatever; if you can capture it in any form of media; send it to the blog to let us know what you did or are doing.
