LIVE from the NYPLROBERT WILSON with Rufus Wainwright, Lou Reed, Lucinda Childs, and others in conversation with Paul Holdengräber 
Friday, September 30, 2011 7:00 p.m.

Robert Wilson will talk to Rufus Wainwright, Lou Reed, Lucinda Childs and others about his artistic collaboration with them over the years.  The conversation will be instigated by Paul Holdengräber.

Robert Wilson is among the most distinguished theater directors of our time. Creator of such works as The King of Spain and The Life and Times of Sigmund Freud, Wilson also collaborated with Philip Glass on the hugely successful opera Einstein on the Beach. Today, Wilson’s accomplishments are recognized not only in the spheres of theatre and opera, but also in the visual arts. Retrospectives of his work have been held throughout the world, and his installations have appeared in several Guggenheim museums, among other venues worldwide.

This event marks the US publication date of The Watermill Center – A Laboratory for Performance – Robert Wilson’s Legacy, a new book about the first 20 years of The Watermill Center.  It will also feature the new book Robert Wilson From Within edited by Margery Arent Safir.

She was a lion sitting on her dad’s shoulders. They formed a totem of two heads, one large, one small as they walked down the street. Powerful with her lion-painted face, she stuck her tongue out at a man passing by. He tripped on the side of his foot and then fell to the ground.

The girl’s father didn’t realize that his daughter scared the man, causing him to fall. The man already had a fear of children. The girl’s father also didn’t realize that had he reached his hand out to help, the man wouldn’t now have two permanent rods conjoined in his hip bone, and wouldn’t have lapsed into a permanent hallucinatory state from which he’d never recover.

 ARIAS WITH A TWIST @ABRONS ART CENTER.
September 14-October 16
Wednesday-Saturday | 8 pm
Saturday Late Show | 10:30 pm
Sunday | 7 pm

This updated version of the original deliriously madcap fantasy once again features the soaring song stylings of demented diva Joey Arias surrounded by an eye-popping theatrical extravaganza conjured by a team of puppeteers under the direction of Basil Twist. Channeling lurid celluloid dreams, macabre nightmares and bizarre premonitions, the adventure begins with an alien abduction and concludes with a stupendous Busby Berkeley-esque finale. Along the way, the throaty chanteuse belts out pop, rock and jazz standards in addition to some original tunes by Alex Gifford as Twist and company work their magic with vintage marionettes, anatomically correct puppets and fantastical scenic elements.

Wu Tsang@CLIFTON BENEVENTO

June 4 – August 5th, 2011
Clifton Benevento is proud to present the New York solo debut of Los Angeles based visual and performance artist Wu Tsang, featuring video, collage and site-specific installation.
Central to the exhibition is DAMELO TODO (Give Me Everything), 2010, a hybrid narrative-documentary installation incorporating elements of Tsang’s lived experience organizing WILDNESS, a party/performance night for two years at the Los Angeles bar Silver Platter. The film depicts a fictional protagonist, Teódulo Mejía, a 15 year-old Salvadorian civil war refugee arriving to Los Angeles in 1985, who discovers community support among trans women at the bar. Based on a short story written by Raquel Gutierrez, and adapted to screen by Tsang, DAMELO TODO fictionalizes a larger narrative about the collaboration and tenuous coalition between the Silver Platter and the young artists of WILDNESS.

Blood, Sweat and Tears: the Work of Art and Tragedy @NUTUREART
Jun 03, 2011 – Jun 24, 2011
Opening Reception:

June 3, 2011 7 – 9 PM

Curated by Project: Curate! and Krista Saunders

Featured artists: Delaney DelPonti, Bianca Dorsey, Jae Y Lee, Rebecca (Marks) Leopold, Steven Ketchum, Graham McNamara, Bridget Parris, Boris Rasin and Judy Richardson

Blood, Sweat, and Tears: the Work of Art and Tragedy endeavors to examine 21st century tragedy, disaster and renewal. The exhibition is an attempt to connect with contemporary artists who are also passionate about this theme. Nine artists were selected whose work explores a particular contemporary disaster, personal tragedy, or the rigor of cultivating new beginnings.  As young adults who have come of age in the burgeoning 21st century, the curators of this exhibition are themselves well-versed in tragedy, disaster and renewal firsthand (as New York City dwellers) and from a distance.

The art world experienced a caesura in the 1960s when the paradigm of the artist, working in solitary fashion, was taken apart by the advent of collaborative art. Through collaboration, the definition of what art was, and how it could be produced, shifted. No longer was the cult of the artist, producing a singular vision understood to be the only viable artistic model. Instead, this now re-evaluated model began to generate questions about authenticity, authorship,audience and methodology. Such collaborative projects as those executed by Gilbert and George, Martin Kippenberger and Albert Oehlen, Jeanne Claude and Christo, and Marina Abramovic and Ulay were instrumental in the development of such major evolutions in conceptual art as Body Art, Systems Art, Earth Art, and Performance Art.

The artists in Temporary Antumbra Zone have come together, collaborating through the lenses of painting, photography, video, and mixed media sculpture to promote collaboration as an invaluable mode of artistic production.

The Booklyn Art Gallery is pleased to present MASTER OF REALITY, a group exhibition featuring works by Milano Chow, Cynthia Daignault, Gary Kachadourian, and STO.

MASTER OF REALITY includes drawings, paintings, sculpture and prints that alter our perceptions of commonplace scenery, find fodder in the mundane, and draw our attention to the handling rather than the objects themselves. The featured artists create an alternate dimension of familiar objects, carefully mimicking reality so that it is recognizable, yet altering it enough to uniquely capture their own way of seeing.

The Comic Book Theater Festival @ THE BRICK

June 2 – July 1, 2011

The influence of comics on our culture continues to grow. From the pop fantasias of Hollywood blockbusters to the rawness and refinement of intimate memoirs—and everything in between—it’s impossible to deny the wide appeal of comics’ words and images. The theater, of course, is no less immune to its spell. This summer, The Brick will invite one of history’s newest art forms to meet one of its oldest—and, through collaborations between visual and dramatic artists, the form and content of comics will collide with the content and form of theater to create strange new hybrids across both media.

A-Lab Forum: FANTASIA (Today, 2pm)
QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development
A-Lab Forum
FANTASIA


Saturday, March 19th, 2011, 2 – 4 PM 

Crossing Art Gallery
136-17 39th Avenue at Main Street
Flushing, Queens-New York

www.qmad.org/alabforum

QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development, continues the presentation of  A-Lab Forum in March. The program is a series of monthly discussions designed as an opportunity for artists, working in various media, to present their work, share their visions and ideas in relation to selected topics and concepts in the field of art production, collaboration, and critical thinking. Each forum consists of a presentation by selected artists, followed by a discussion period with the curator and attending audience.  Participating artists are identified and invited by the curator / facilitator from a pull of entries for that month. The forums are open to the general public, and are free of charge. 

This month’s forum focuses on notions of the fantastic, the imaginary, and the surreal (re)presented in visual and performative arts. Selected works explore themes around the uncanny as an instance where something can be familiar, yet foreign at the same time, resulting in a feeling of it being strange or fantastic. Participating artists using various media (painting, sculpture, video, illustration, photography, digital arts, multimedia, installation, mixed media, and performance art.) explore notions of “magical realism,” “phantasmagoria,” and/or the “supernatural” where distortions of the real –human or environmental- are referenced and used. Organized by artist Hector Canonge.

Participating Artists:
Carmen Einfinger
Anthony Gonzalez
Eva Nikolova
Carol Radsprecher
Jason Villegas

Networked Presentation (Los Angeles):
Maya Erdelyi-Perez

Location & Directions:

Crossing Art Gallery, 136-17 39th Avenue at Main Street, Flushing, NY.
7 train to Main Street Flushing. Walk one block on Main Street to 39th Ave (Opposite direction of the LIRR Overpass). Turn Right on 39th Ave & enter Queens Crossing (Large Glass Façade with Blue & Pink Flowers). Take the stairs or elevator to the Ground Floor. Phone: 212-359-4333.

About A-Lab:
A-Lab is an artists’ collective initiated by New-media artist, Hector Canonge. From its inception in 2009, A-Lab’s mission has been to promote and forge stronger collaborative projects for artists working and/or living in NYC. A-Lab is an independent initiative whose mission is to inform and assist artists in various aspects of their development. A-Lab’s monthly meetings have been designed as a collaborative effort among artists to share resources, know-how, and experience to compete in the market place. In addition, A-Lab highly encourages and supports social activities to take place in local businesses and institutions in New York City. The convergence of the Arts and Community Building is another important component of the A-Lab as members can propose performances, shows, music gatherings, poetry readings, projections, public interventions, and more, in and around the various boroughs.
