THE THREE FURIES: WRITING WITH A VENGEANCE COMING UP THIS SUNDAY.

The Three Furies: Writing with a Vengeance

Sunday, May 15—5:00pm
A Gathering of the Tribes
285 East Third Street (between Ave C & D) #2
(212) 674-3778
A GATHERING OF THE TRIBES
ONLINE INVITE
THE 22 MAGAZINE
MAP

Known as “the Angry Ones” in Greek myth, the Furies were a trio of vengeful women born from the blood drops of the castrated appendage of Uranus (whose Titan son, Cronus, did him a dirty turn). They were psychological tormentors, the personification of vindictiveness and retribution. In art they were represented as winged creatures wearing nothing but snakes. In this reading by emerging writers Jamey Bradbury, Ansel Elkins, and Thera Webb—recent graduates of the MFA program in creative writing at University of North Carolina-Greensboro—they will forego niceties and read from an unforgiving selection of their latest work. If you’re bored with bucolic love poems, or have recently be wronged by a paramour, this Gathering of the Tribes is the place to savor the sweet taste of revenge.

INTERVALS: FUTUREFARMERS MAY 4-14 @ GUGGENHEIM.

INTERVALS: FUTUREFARMERS, May 4–14, 2011 @Guggenheim
PROGRAMS/EVENTS 

Futurefarmers, a San Francisco–based art collective, creates projects that are diverse both in terms of production and in their strategies of audience engagement. Recent projects include lunchboxes that incorporate hydrogen-producing algae, antiwar computer games, and the Urban Garden Registry (2008), an online map of unused land sites in San Francisco that are feasible for gardening and food production. If anything typifies a Futurefarmers project, it is the balance of both critical and optimistic thought and the use of both inventive and pragmatic design elements. In 2005 the group examined the vanishing art of shoemaking in the installation Shoelace Exchange; for the Guggenheim’s Intervals series the group further investigates this craft with a site-specific installation for the museum.

Henry Gwiazda: Claudia and Paul

claudia and paul 2:13 a.m. text version
by Henry Gwiazda

It’s late, and I’m looking out of my window onto the street below. Not because I’m bored, or some sound or movement has aroused me, but because I do.

I’m looking at a crossroads in an older part of the city from a height of about 5 stories. The buildings are only two or three stories and there are numerous streetlights. There is a man standing almost in the middle of the crossroads facing in my direction looking down the road to his left. There is a woman standing in the road as well, just a few feet from the corner of the lower right side of the crossroads. She is looking in the opposite direction than the man is looking. On the sidewalk, up the street that runs up and down, is a dog, a Great Dane, which is looking further up the street.

THE 22 VOL: 1 ONLINE NOW!

Well folks, it’s finally here. The first issue of The 22 in all it’s beautiful, gritty, hard wonness and I for one am glad to see it foisted upon the world. For the moment it is available to view on ISSUU and this evening I’ll have everything embedded so the tentacles of publication stretch far and wide. There are some amazing artists in here, and their words and pictures are now all yours. Over the next couple of months I’ll be shining a spotlight on each of these artists and telling you the story of why the were chosen to be one of the 22.(Look for a special post tomorrow morning as well, introducing you to the 22.)

Lots of very cool things coming up in the following months as well, including video interviews and some really terrific events involving the contributors.

Thanks again to all the folks that made this possible. We couldn’t have done it without you…and you….and definitely you.

SLIDELUCK POTSHOW XVI
Saturday, May 14, 2011
5:30pm  Beautiful Bountiful Brooklyn Tasting Hour  |  7pm Potluck  |  8:30pm Slideshow
Location:  TBA  |  Dumbo, Brooklyn
Tickets Available Soon!

As Brooklyn is now synonymous with the seasonal, sustainable and local food movement, we are again offering a Beautiful Bountiful Brooklyn Tasting Hour, involving a number of restaurants, organizations and purveyors, as well as the beers of Brooklyn Brewery  As this is our only major potluck dinner in NYC this year, we’d like to invite people to bring dishes that have as many local, seasonal ingredients as possible.

Event Description

It brings me great pleasure to announce that Slideluck Potshow and The New York Photo Festival will be teaming up again to present Slideluck Potshow XVI.  Following last year’s collaboration which resulted in breaking The Guinness World Record for the Largest Potluck on Earth, we will be gathering once more in celebration of food, photography and community. 

The theme of this slideshow will be UPHEAVAL.  From the Middle East to middle America, we are living in a time characterized by great upheaval – in politics, nature, religion, art,climate, food, media, relationships, technology and education.  Whether for better or worse, we are looking for work that speaks to the remarkable change that surrounds us.
We are excited to bring in Whitney Johnson (also a Seattlite) who is taking over for her at The New Yorker (upheaval in and of itself) as our guest curator!  We are seeking creative and insightful projects about UPHEAVAL – and as usual, one half of the show will be open and not bound by any theme.



The 22 Show TONIGHT at 7pm.

22 show tonight at 7. We’re heading out to start hanging this beautiful work and warm up that old projector. Soon to arrive music and other fun.

Come have a coffee or drink and spend a relaxing Sunday eve with us, salon style.

Degenerate Art Ensemble: RED SHOES APRIL 3rd @ CPR.


At 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 3 Degenerate Art Ensemble will reprise their work performed at Watermill, but this time in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn at CPR – Center for Performance Research. Click HERE to read more about the event and purchase tickets.

THE WORK

Red Shoes On April 1 at The Watermill Center and April 3 at CPR – Center for Performance Research, Degenerate Art Ensemble (DAE) will present public performances of their work in progress titled Red Shoes. Red Shoes reimagines Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of a girl who is cursed to dance herself to death as a punishment for following her creative desires. DAE describes their work as ‘live music driven, comedy / horror, butoh inspired physical theatre.’ Their performance will utilize the musical talents of local East End musicians and will explore audience involvement in both the creation of soundscapes as well as choreography in portions of the piece. Their residency at Watermill is focused on the completion of one of the chapters of Red Shoes which is set to premiere at Seattle’s Frye Art Museum in May 2011. With limited opportunity to hold full rehearsals in the actual performance sites in Seattle, they will use the residency as a testing ground. Museum locations include a forest, a body of water, a field, and an indoor exhibition space – all spaces that exist on or nearby the Watermill grounds.

THE ARTISTS

Degenerate Art Ensemble Degenerate Art Ensemble is a performance company that creates original and adventurous productions using live music, physical theater and the visceral language of Butoh dance. Audio elements include live foley art, orchestras/chamber ensembles, bands, newly invented instruments, and electronics. Their creative approach is intensely collaborative and is in a constant state of invention and re-invention. Aesthetically extreme, influenced by punk, protest, cartoons, nightmares and fairy tales, DAE takes the viewer into otherworldly landscapes — full of compelling characters and music that doesn’t just accompany the action, but defines the mental state and reveals secrets to the audience that the characters will never know. DAE’s work is a tightly wound mechanism made up of triggers and cues that when released on stage aims to achieve a heightened sense of awareness one might find in a sacrificial rite. DAE has been presented by On The Boards (Seattle), REDCAT (L.A.), New Museum (N.Y.), Festival Alternativa (Prague), T.F.F. Festival (Germany) and many others in ten countries of Europe and North America. DAE has garnered acclaim with more than five hundred concerts and performances in ten countries. It has explored a diverse variety of formats, including music, dance, theater, film scoring, recording, sculpture, and painting in over one hundred original performative works and nine commercial music recordings. The group has received commissions from On the Boards, Commissioning Music USA, and the Aaron Copland Fund, and will be in residence at The Watermill Center a Laboratory of Performance. DAE is currently the subject of a large scale touring museum exhibition at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, Washington. www.degenerateartensemble.com
