Fuse Ensemble presents “Voices from the Depths, Musings on CG Jung’s Red Book”
Where: The Firehouse Space
When: June 16, 2012 8:00 pm
Fuse Ensemble is a concept-based new music/new media performing ensemble. Each season a concept is presented, giving voice to new music composers and creating musical happenings with visual elements of live, interactive video and/or kinetic installations. The musicians of Fuse perform on an eclectic mix of flute, clarinet, electric violin, electric guitar, cello, piano, electronic playback, percussion, and invented instruments. Linked by the insane possibilities of software such as MaxMSP/Jitter, using sensors on the musicians and live interactive cameras on stage, the artists create an experience that fuses sound, video and humans into a liquefied state and gives each concept a setting — a visual and kinetic environment to experience it in that furthers communication
and unifies the concept.

Ban Fracking in NY State!
Where: 7408 Fifth Avenue, Bay Ridge
When: Thursday, June 14, at 4 p.m.
Fracking poses a serious threat to our drinking water, our agricultural land, and our air quality. It adds to our greenhouse gas emissions, and pushes us even further away from renewable energy solutions.
We need to persuade key Albany legislators to ban fracking in New York State. One of those key legislators is Brooklyn’s State Senator Martin Golden. Join Climate Action/Brooklyn For Peace and New Yorkers Against Fracking as we send a message to Senator Golden: Save Our Water! Ban Fracking Now!
Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Musik Im Bauch
Where: Naumberg Bandshell, Central Park, Manhattan
When: June 21
Karlheinz Stockhausen‘s 1975 music-theatre work Musik Im Bauch (“Music in the Belly”) for six percussionists places its audience in an outré fairly-tale dream world. The piece was inspired by a game Stockhausen played with his two-year-old daughter, Julika, in which the composer listened to the sounds in her noisy stomach. Seven years later, Stockhausen conceived Musik Im Bauch during a dream. A loose narrative defines the transformation into humanity of three automatons, who attack a giant bird-man, named Miron, savagely cutting open his stomach and pulling out 3 music boxes which play melodies based on the signs of the Zodiac.
Selma Parlour and Yelena Popova
Where: Horton Gallery
When: Jun 14 – Jul 14, 2012
Horton Gallery is pleased to announce a two-person exhibition featuring the work of London based painter Selma Parlour and Nottingham based multi-media artist Yelena Popova.

NELSON LOSKAMP: Horror Girls
Where: LAUNCH F18
When: June 12 – July 28, 2012
Launch F18 is pleased to announce Horror Girls, the first solo exhibition of work at the gallery by Nelson Loskamp. The exhibition will be open by appointment starting Tuesday June 12 and runs until Saturday July 28, 2012. The artist reception will be held on Saturday June 23, 2012 from 6 – 8pm. Nelson Loskamp is known for his dynamic relationship with the figure. He has executed work in a multitude of media within the parameters of individualistic style and cultural visual stigmas. Horror Girls comes from an interpretation of still shots from an assortment of 1960’s horror films. Loving the style in these B films, Nelson considers the 60’s hair and make-up in their depicted period settings and recreates them in haunting paintings that are both
beautiful and macabre.

When: June 14-July 20, 2012
Reception June 14, 6-8pm.
When: June 19
From ancient underground rivers and forgotten quarry tunnels to modern sewers and utility networks, the underground layers of the world’s great cities are full of places that are usually unseen, but that reveal the city’s history in new and startling ways. These hidden layers of the urban environment can teach us about how cities grow and function, and can provide a new perspective that highlights the ways that our daily experience in any city shapes– and is shaped by– the built environment around us.
ERIK SCHOONEBEEK: PHANTOM HAND
Where: Jeff Bailey Gallery
When: June 14 – July 13, 2012, Opening Reception: Thursday, June 14 6-8 pm
Jeff Bailey Gallery is pleased to present Erik Schoonebeek: Phantom Hand. This is his first solo exhibition in New York, featuring paintings and drawings made on found paper, old book covers and other materials. Schoonebeek is influenced by contemporary advertising images, especially those seen while driving: road signs, billboards, commercial graphics, logos and posters. Although these images and graphic symbols are designed to communicate in some way, for Schoonebeek they become enmeshed with one another and change, as he says, “ into autonomous images that confront you with a blank stare”. From this source material, Schoonebeek forms his own imagery that hovers between recognizable graphic cues and amorphous narrative.

BLUE NOTE JAZZ FESTIVAL & NOLAFUNK/CEG PRESENT: LEON REDBONE
Where: June 23, 2012 , 7:30 pm
When: June 23
For decades, Leon Redbone has remained musically resonant and personally elusive. Although his iconic guise of white fedora, jacket, and sunglasses has been thoroughly satirized, it’s easy to overlook what a genuinely gifted artist he remains — a role he inevitably tries to downplay.
To the Stars on the Wings of an Eel
Where: The Gowanus Ballroom
When: June 29th–July 7th, 2012
Throughout its history the Gowanus has inspired both utopian dreams and dystopian nightmares. The past four-hundred years have witnessed the site’s transformation from a fertile series of tidal wetlands to one of the busiest industrial waterways in the United States. The canal, once a source for sustenance and hope, is today tainted by a notorious legacy of pollution and decay.
THE ENCHANTED ORGAN: A PORN OPERA
Where: Dixon Place
When:Friday-Saturday, June 22-23, 9:30pm
The Enchanted Organ” is a burlesque opera that celebrates sexuality and satirizes the porn industry, while parodying four hundred years of the operatic tradition. Composer/librettist team Gordon Beeferman and Charlotte Jackson, with director Beth Greenberg, bring their trademark wit and polymorphous perversity to this journey through “the Magical Kingdom of Porn,” a place where past and present, straight and queer, and dead and living converge. Bridging the gap between “high” art and “low,” we puncture the turgid balloon of “traditional” opera and revivify the flaccid clichés of porn. Drawing on influences as diverse as classic 70s porn soundtracks, Monteverdi, and Ancient Greek hymns, and bridging the worlds of opera, drag, and striptease, this work-in-progress is as close as you’ll get (or want to get!) to “aural sex.”

Search & Restore and BoomCollective are proud to present another even of Undead Jazz, featuring two of our favorite groups. It is going to be unreal. Todd’s band will include the magnificent Andrew Bird on violin, and the rest of the cast of characters are listed below. GET ‘EM!
TODD SICKAFOOSE’S TINY RESISTORS:
John Ellis (sax & clarinet)
Alan Ferber (trombone)
Andrew Bird (violin & looping)
Steve Cardenas (guitar)
Jonathan Goldberger (guitar)
Ted Poor (drums & percussion)
Todd Sickafoose (bass & piano)
MARY HALVORSON TRIO:
Mary Halvorson (guitar)
John Hebert (bass)
Ches Smith (drums)
10PM – Bassist/composer Todd Sickafoose’s band is a marvel of musical cross-breeding, pairing indie rock muscle and whimsy with the extended forms, timbres, and sophistication of a jazz orchestra. Their newest recording “Tiny Resistors” (Cryptogramophone) has been called “thoroughly original, endlessly creative…one of the year’s most compelling listens” (JazzTimes), “stunningly brilliant…a modern jazz masterpiece” (Bassplayer), and “a one-disc explanation of why today’s Brooklyn jazz scene is so exciting” (HotHouse). A Bay Area native, Sickafoose’s penchant for genre-bending may or may not be attributible to a classical upbringing, CalArts years studying bass with Charlie Haden, or the last seven years with folk hero Ani DiFranco, performing as a duo and quartet everywhere from punk clubs to Carnegie Hall. Since 2005, he’s been active in New York, performing with a ton of innovative folks including Jenny Scheinman, Ron Miles, Nels Cline, Allison Miller and Myra Melford. For tonight’s special performance, Tiny Resistors, which features saxophonist John Ellis, trombonist Alan Ferber, guitarists Steve Cardenas and Jonathan Goldberger, and drummer Ted Poor, will be joined by special guest violinist (and whistler) Andrew Bird.

Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present White Flag, an exhibition of new paintings by the Los Angeles-based artist Cleon Peterson. This is Peterson’s first solo show at the gallery.
If the title of this new body of work suggests a surrender, it’s not the conventional sort. Known for his depictions of graphic violence and depravity, Peterson’s dystopian art rips the lid off of accepted social decorum to unleash aggression and other pent-up impulses. As figures torture, maim, cut, and abuse one another, a surrender to the worst in humanity is staged on the surfaces of the artist’s work—here, it can be safely, cathartically, and even aesthetically enacted. (READ MORE.)
Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present Memento Mori, an exhibition of new paintings by the New York-based artist Tat Ito. This occasion marks Ito’s solo debut in New York, and is his fourth appearance in shows at the gallery.
Tat Ito was born and raised in Japan, but he later made his art studies in the United States. Consequently, the artist and his paintings are a dynamic confluence of East and West, traditional and contemporary. The poetic analogy of “oil on water” describes Ito’s approach to both imagery and cultural references; in his vibrantly colored work, traditional Japanese aesthetics are a foundation upon which floats a contemporary (i.e., Western-influenced) viewpoint. Like a skim of oil on water, the beautiful, reflective surfaces of his paintings fascinate viewers. These top layers never mix but, rather, are presented in dialogue with the substance beneath.

Cao Fei: Play Time @ LOMBARD FRIED
May 18- June 25, 2011
Mat 12 6:00pm-8:00pm
Play Time by Cao Fei, one of the key artists of the new generation emerging from Mainland China, will open at Lombard Freid Projects on Wednesday May 18th 2011.
For her fourth solo exhibition at Lombard Freid, Cao Fei’s recent exploration into the theme of “play” has multiple connotations; Play Time is layered with ambiguities. Does it relish a time of game planning and exhilaration, or an onstage performance? This exhibition leaves viewers with no clear-cut answers, but rather with ideas and associations of different dimensions.
Following her powerful and widely influential RMB City Series (2008-2011), Play Time returns to Cao Fei’s previous interest in the convergence of fantasy and reality and premieres her latest works. She continues to utilize different types of media including video, photography and sculptural installations that evoke childhood games, story telling and TV programs that have a profound influence on children.

May 11 – June 12, 2011
Opening reception; Wednesday, May 11, 6 – 8pm
James Fuentes LLC is pleased to announce William Stone’s forthcoming solo exhibition;Framed, this will be the artist’s third solo show at the gallery. The exhibition will primarily feature reconstituted paintings – the earliest of which date back to the eighteenth century.
Employing reverse paintings, commissioned portraits and landscapes – the artists’s revisions give these events, which were on the brink of being forgotten, new life. These works speak to qualities inherent in these varied genres of painting; as well as their desire to render, consecrate and awe.
William Stone’s work categorically looks at everyday objects and the way they occupy the human condition. From his earliest works that incorporated water and wind into household furnishings to his more recent inventions and revisions of chairs – the artist’s use of everyday objects supplies an endless resource of materials. Stone’s practice is steeped in poetics and mechanics resulting in works that offer as many semiotic connotations as they do visual ones.
William Stone has presented solo exhibitions at The Clock Tower/P.S. 1 Center for Contemporary Art, Emily Harvey Gallery and Tom Cugliani and has participated in group exhibitions at The New Museum, Deste Foundation for the Arts, The Aldrich Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park, Voorkamer, Lier, Engholm Engelhorn Galerie and Tanya Bonakdar Gallery.
Gallery hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 11am – 6pm.
