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

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.

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.”

The “Book of Ice” (Mark Batty Publisher) consists of multiple engagements with the theme of ice as presented by posters, stickers, music compositions, and an introduction by best selling author Brian Greene, whose ground-breaking book “The Elegant Universe” sets the tone for some of the issues in Miller’s new book.

Brooklyn, NY, July 2011, HONEYCOMB and Causey Contemporary proudly present Ritual, a group exhibition featuring original artwork produced by over twenty of the freshest urban, newbrow, young contemporary artists hailing from seven countries. The public is invited to the artists’ reception on July 12th from 6 – 9 p.m Ritualistic behavior is one of the few things that have universally permeated all human sociological development. It has helped form civilizations, spawned entire belief systems, and through the ages has continuously influenced human conduct while simultaneously shaping the world as we know it. While the actual processes may vary, the incorporation of ritual into society is something that transcends nationality, geographic location and linear timeline. Cultures of both the past and present have used symbolic, traditional or religious rituals for any number of reasons including divination, personal pleasure, the achievement of spiritual or emotional needs, the formation of social bonds, expressions of respect and devotion, the advancement of social status, acceptance or for educational purposes. Although there are great differences among the countless rituals in existence, it is evident that regardless of intent or appearance, ritualistic behavior is undeniably intertwined with both our past and our future, and something that unites us all.
Othelo Gervacio @ FUSE GALLERY.
Exhibition: July 13 through July 27, 2011
Opening Reception: Wednesday, July 13th, 7 to 10 pm
Boredom inspires creation. In Othelo Gervacio’s case, Postboredom is art garnered from his lingering disenfranchised youth. Gervacio has held onto the adolescent manifestation of making art and music because “you hate what is happening around you.” He states, “Are the only punks left now ‘Fashion punks’? No thanks, I’d rather I’d sit at home, listen to sludgy metal and paint something dark.” Othelo Gervacio is a new face in the downtown New York art scene. After four years under the wing of tattoo/fine artist Scott Campbell, and prior schooling in the arts, Gervacio has channeled his experiences to create his own definitive style. With the use of dark imagery and gothic lettering forms,
his art reflects an influence from the grittier side of tattoo culture, metal music, and lingering teenage angst.

Tuesday July 12th Reception/Viewing for Michael Beitz
August 4th CHERYL closing performance
FROM THE ARTIST:
The installation visually is based on a particular sort of stage light that I only know from single person performances in the the 60s and 70s and that for me is also very metaphorical. I combine this with audio footage of a very special moment in Dylan’s carrier. Somebody called him “Judas” in a show in Manchester, England in 1966. You can watch that here:
The reasons for that you can read about here:
And I will ad my own story to this. Not my personal one, but a kind of metaphorical little story. I’m replaceing his real answer to the Judas cry with words I’ll rearrange from footage of the old man Dylan’s voice. So you will see the puppet in that stage light and hear the Judas cry followed by a rather metaphorical answer.

Exhibition preview – Detroit-based visual artist Bethany Shorb’s “Supplemental Restraint System” is born from classic American and vintage European sports car parts harvested from wrecked vehicles. Her work is tightly wrapped in an outer skin made exclusively from previously deployed airbags, beaded and sutured back together forming another protective barrier in an imagined automotive crash narrative, then further fetishized in glass scientific vitrines. Also included in the show are neon and automotive emblem text assemblages as obsessive tropes on car-culture.

OPENING: THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 6-8PM
Mixed Greens is pleased to present the site-specific window project The Other Side of Ground by Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus, the artist duo known as LoVid. Their dynamic, colorful pieces are a masterful mix of the low- and high-tech.
Known for their innovative performances, live video installations, tactile objects, patchworks, sculptures, and installations, LoVid encourages the viewer to reexamine his/her relationship to the digital world. By mixing analog and digital philosophies, processes, and techniques, LoVid’s pieces come to life. In one piece, for instance, it was necessary for viewers to touch points on a monolithic sculpture in order for a video to activate. Human touch became the subject of a digital output. MORE »
