Sat Sep 17 – 8:00 PM and Sun Sep 18 – 8:00 PM

Three legends of the New York Underground combine forces for an evening of extreme improvised music. “The most important multimedia artist of our time,”(LA Times), Laurie Anderson is best known for her multimedia presentations and musical recordings that have challenged and delighted audiences around the world for more than 30 years. Tonight Anderson teams up with husband Lou Reed – arguably one of the most influential musicians in rock history whose band, the Velvet Underground, redefined the music of the late ’60s. Also joining them tonight is maverick composer/performer and godfather of the Downtown New York scene, John Zorn.

BRIAN M. VIVEROS: RETURNING ART TO THE UNCLEAN @ LAST RITES.
Opening Reception: Saturday, Sept 3rd, 7:00pm-11:00pm.  Show runs Sept 3rd thru 25th, 2011.

Known for his strong and sensuous depictions of women, Brian M. Viveros is a master of contemporary iconography paying homage to the femme fatale. While he almost exclusively paints portraits, within the expressions of his women is conveyed such deep emotion and overwhelming sexuality that his work is undeniably erotic. Often without even a hint of nudity, the viewer is seduced with a mere pout and gaze from his subject’s faces.

In what will be Brian’s second showing at the gallery, the opening will feature an all new collection of original paintings, as well as special rare prints from the artist’s own collection; poster giveaway and signing; live “Smoking Army” performance; screening of Brian’s films along with his new short, and much more.

Subkoff & Chancellor are offering their artwork for free to everyone who joins them, and ultimately back to the earth itself. Having traded their cash for living native seeds, soil and local clay, they’ve constructed a 13 foot tall sculpture with this material that they invite the public to help disassemble. Visitors are welcome to grab a handful of the sculpture and recast it in a provided mold, walking away with a small sculpture of their own. If left in an appropriate place such as an abandoned lot, garden or any soft ground it should dissolve and yield a significant number of native wildflowers within a month. If taken home and treated as an art object, it will likely dry out, crack and expire worthless.  The main small sculptural casting will be of a rendition of Tlaloc, the elemental Aztec god of water, rain and fertility whose name translates as “he who is made of earth”.

Susan Graham
New Gardens

April 14, 2011–May 14, 2011

Susan Graham’s exhibition, New Gardens, features sculpture, photography and video that use strategies of pattern and decoration to poetically depict the eternal struggle between nature and technology. Central to the exhibition are Toile Landscape, a large scale installation of Graham’s delicate sugar sculptures, and the intimate porcelain Toile Floating Landscape sculptures. Mimicking the recurring patterns of complex pastoral scenes found on Toile de Jouy, these works depict clusters of invented flora interspersed with industrial structures such as transmission towers, satellite dishes, or even cell phone towers disguised as trees. Charming, delicate and foreboding, each small pastoral scene compresses nature and technology in a bittersweet attempt at reconciliation. Graham’s photographs and videos on view in New Gardens depict skies choked with flocks of airplanes, modern-day birds staking their claim on the atmosphere. These works showcase Graham’s deft touch and ability to evoke rich, multivalent narratives from a few simple, quiet gestures. New Gardens is Graham’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery.

Cletus Johnson 
Collage 1968–2010

April 14, 2011–May 14, 2011

Cletus Johnson: Collage 1968–2010 presents a selection of Johnson’s beguiling collages, including collaborative pieces made with famed Black Mountain poet Robert Creeley. Johnson’s works are composed of deceptively simple materials inviting private, almost meditative contemplation on subjects of longing, erotic love and primal lust. Their quietude evokes a Cagean musicality, while a minimal juxtaposition of images wrings endless narrative associations. Envelopes containing black and white photographs of a woman’s breast are intimate love letters being sent and received, revealing a desire to both contain and set free the object of affection. Amusement park ride tickets are coupled with cropped images of naked male youths, granting the viewer permission to experience desire. Portrayals of Antinous—Roman Emperor Hadrian’s lover—as Cyclops become homorobotic emblems of a carnal hunger for an idealized beauty. Johnson’s collages show him as a master of the simple, poetic intervention.



THE 22 FEATURED CONTRIBUTOR: BRIAN DETTMER

Part of what we do here at The 22 is highlight each of our contributor’s with a special “featured artist” section on the blog and our main site. This includes special content, and show announcements. This month we are starting our featured artists series with Brian Dettmer. Carver, collector, “book surgeon”, call him what you will, Dettmer’s work is layering of magnificent patience combined with a playful mind. His sculptures are reminiscent of futuristic depictions of urban and organic structures built out of the pre-history of encyclopedic and vintage texts. For most of the month of May we will be celebrating Dettmer’s work with special blog content, as well as many posts featuring his amazing creations. To view this and all of Brian’s work look for the “BRIAN DETTMER” tag under the categories section. To see all our past featured artist’s look for “THE 22 FEATURED ARTIST.”  To see all of Brian’s featured content from The 22 Magazine visit his page online: http://www.the22magazine.com/Pages/briandettmer.html



BRIAN DETTMER OPENING MAY 19th @ KINZ+TILLOU.

BRIAN DETTMER

Recent Works: Works on Paper

May 19 – June 11

Preview Reception:
Thursday, May 19, 6:00 – 8:00 pm

426 West 26 Street, Suite 416, NYC

To view works in the exhibition click under “Artworks” on the left menu, and click thumbnails to enlarge.

Brian Dettmer sifts through stacks of old books, boxes of dusty cassette tapes, and piles of obsolete maps to uncover the perfect source and subject for his conceptual explorations and sculptural dissections. Dettmer alters pre-existing materials by selectively removing and manipulating elements as a way to allow new interpretations and ideas to emerge. With the precision of a surgeon, Dettmer uses clamps, scalpels and tweezers to recontextualize his found objects and reveal hidden meanings.

Brian Dettmer has exhibited extensively in galleries and museums throughout North America and Europe.

Gertrude Stein’s Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights Friday and Sat.

Ashley Kelly Tata writing to invite you to the next theatrical extravaganza brought to you by Columbia University with the energy and collaboration of Enthuse Theater.

We are very excited (and a little bit nervous) to share with you the work we have been doing on Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights, written by “The Mother of us All,” Gertrude Stein. We have been hard at work detangling the knotty words of Stein in a valiant attempt to bring to you this take on a story we all know: Faustus has sold his soul to Mephisto for eternal life and knowledge—and light. But what if there is no proof of purchase? What if a woman entered this world and seems to possess that knowledge without having sold her soul? Who has the right to knowledge? What is the responsibility of power? What does a guy (or girl) have to do to get to hell?

We hope you will join us for 90 minutes of a theatrical exploratory event created by an incredible group of artists. Please come for the show, stay for the conversation, the environment, and the company.

Until then, with awe, enthusiasm and great anticipation,

That’s Beautiful Frank!

Contributor and cohort Jeff Burns first film, That’s Beautiful Frank, is about to get it’s sea legs! Starring Edgar Oliver (also one of this issue’s 22) in the lead role (Francis Eugene Carroll), TBF is a futurist thriller full of intrigue, romance, and barking girls.

Check out the Trailer!

From the director~

We are really happy to kick off this site and share with you some fun glimpses of our new Futurist-comedy-thriller ‘That’s Beautiful Frank.’ You can find a description of the film here and for the shorter explanation take a look at our teaser trailer.

Pretty soon we will have more video clips  for you to sink your fanged eyes into, so please keep checking back for more.

On this blog we will keep you up to date on screenings, events, and festivals along with breaking news from our cast and the Futurist art scene.  If anything pops in your head feel free to give us a shout, and with your permission we would love to add you to our mailing list of upcoming events. Make sure to look for us on facebook, and if you happen to be a user of YouTube or Vimeo we’d love to meet and greet you there as well.

I will leave you with the disclaimer written by the editors of the French paper Le Figaro that prefaced the  publication of Marinetti’s Futurist Manifesto in 1909:

“Mr Marinetti, the young Italian and French poet, a remarkable, hot-blooded talent known throughout the Latin countries by virtue of his resounding public appearances . . . is solely responsible for the ideas [expressed in the manifesto], which are singularly audacious and exaggerated to the point of being unjust to certain eminently respectable and – fortunately – generally respected matters. However, we thought it interesting to offer our readers the first edition of this publication, whatever opinion they may form of it.”

AND now…..the barking girls…




PPL FOCUS WRKSP at Anarchist Book Fair April 9th and 10th.

We’ll be at the Anarchist Book Fair next weekend!

April 9, 11am-12:30pm
…FOCUS WORKSHOP for kids and their parents:

Institute_Institut FOCUS WORKSHOP #5: the self and its image
The Panoply Performance Laboratory

What is an individual? What is an “institution”? Using live-feed video that allows kids (and parents) to see themselves move onscreen in real time, we will explore the place where our selves are often asked to “feed” into structures such as school, work, and family. Kids/parents may play an interactive game that examines the mechanics of institutional engagement and invites subjective critical analysis of any current institutional relationships that the participants may have. Smaller kids may choose to play with their own image and their endlessly repeating, smaller and smaller images continuing off into the distance.

and for adults and teens, April 10, 4:15-5:45pm

FOCUS WORKSHOP on “Institutions.”
Part radical think tank, part focus group, part physical workshop, the Panoply Performance Laboratory invites participants to discuss their relationships with institutions, and focus on the role(s) that institutions play, both as groups of individuals and as emergent entities, through group exercises. Each participant will also have the opportunity to make an individual public statement on video for inclusion in PPL’s 2011 documentary opera, Institute_Institut (and will get a free ticket to PPL’s final performances.)

***********

Join PPL for a Focus Workshop in March and April, 2011!

Seeking opinions, experiences, and feedback from individuals, these workshops form a public co-creation aspect of the experimental opera project Institute_Institut.

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED, ALL INDIVIDUALS OF ALL AGES, FROM ALL BACKGROUNDS INVITED!

(March workshops complete, THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ATTENDED!)

APRIL:

Saturday, April 9th
6-7:30pm (kids and parents)

Sunday, April 10
4:15pm-5:45pm (adults and teens)

both as part of the Anarchist Book Fair
at Judson Church
55 Washington Square South
New York (A/C/E/F/M/B/D to W4 or R to 8th Ave)

JUST SHOW UP!

FREE

Between Dec. 2010 and June 2011, PPL is conducting a series of Focus Workshops, investigating cultural structures, interpersonal politics, daily conceptions of reality, and institutional ecologies through group discussion, performance work, and co-creation.

A Focus Workshop is part focus group and part thinktank. “Workshop” is used to note the performance-based perspective held by the workshop facilitators (the artists creating the project) and the performance research direction that some workshops take, depending on the interests of the participants.

Part I: Group Discussion. What are institutions? How do they function in your life? What are some of your experiences with them?

Part 2: Enactions, observations, and games.

All participants will receive a free ticket to the performances of Institute_Institut, in Fall 2011. The project is a staged documentary opera about authority, reality, institutionality, and sensibility. Issues and ideas discussed and researched through these Focus Workshops, as well as selected experiences, statements, and documentation from them (and many other forms of research) will largely form the libretto.
