Repackaged is a continuation of Richard Garrison’s analysis of ubiquitous materials, objects and places from the suburban, often consumer related, American landscape, such as Sunday newspaper sale circulars, parking lot colors, product packaging, Disney World and Wal-mart, among others. Garrison’s recontextualization of aspects of consumer culture affords us a new perspective on commonplace objects, places and experiences. (read more)

Occupy My Slumber Chamber, Wild Bird.

By Robert Herbert

Buzzard pecks the glass pane that frames outsides.

He is pretty pissed about something.


I let him in, he beaksnaps my smoking jacket.

“Say something, you stupid bird, bogle me

less at such an hour as this, the gay sun

is still to galivant this way and you


should be nesting.” He perches on the shelf

for the poetry books and squawks, livid,

stomping now like a trooper. I could kill

him, and as I guage this ill, it becomes clear,


he is comparing the vague emptiness

of my bookshelves to a totalitarian regime.

He wants me to flail freestyle for freedom,

to scorn my propaganda in a false past,

to write better poems, that maybe outlast

links I like, I post, on Facebook, about David Graeber.


Robert Herbert’s debut collection of poems entitled, Pangs! & Intermittences, is forthcoming from Knives Forks & Spoons Press. The poem presented here is an Intermittence. Other works have appeared in Stop Sharpening Your Knives 3 and 4, Kritya, Magma, Gallous, Poetry Proper, Ink Sweat and Tears, Brand, and 3am Magazine. He solicits poems for the e-zine, Digital Behemoth, see http://digitalbehemoth.tumblr.com/ He has performed his poems at Wells Poetry Next The Sea, Flatlake Literary and Arts Festival, The Poetry Library, and The Seamus Heaney Centre.

Boo-Hooray is happy to announce an exhibition of original art, publications, photography, ephemera and manuscripts related to Jacqueline De Jong’s vanguard publication The Situationist Times, celebrating the 50th anniversary of its first issue. A total of six issues were published: Issue 1 in May of 1962, and the final issue in December of 1967. A seventh issue was compiled but not published. The Situationist movement produced periodicals: Internationale Situationniste (twelve issues published between 1958 and 1969) and the German Gruppe SPUR publication SPUR (six issues from August 1960 to August 1961). There were other examples: Drakabygget (Scandinavia), Heatwave (UK), Black Mask (USA), King Mob Echo (UK). Dutch artist and graphic designer Jacqueline de Jong joined the Situationist International in 1960. De Jong suggested the publication of an English language newsletter in November of 1960, to be co-edited with British Situationist Alexander Trocchi.

The 22 V 2/II SIGN & SYMBOL ONLINE NOW!

It is with no small amount of honor that we present the contributors of Vol 2/II: Sign & Symbol. These works are potent and it is with great awe, wonder, shock, respect, and pride that we raise The 22′s banner to pay tribute.

The contributors in Volume 2/II display an uncanny ability to manipulate context. Artists, writers, and musicians often stand at the forefront of cultural change, reflecting visions and revisions of our shared history. The contributors in this volume prove that icons come in many shapes, sizes, and media. At The 22, it is not our job to decide which is more correct, but instead to showcase a spectrum of interpretations. From the brash innuendos of Alexander Barton, the subtle humor of Captain Panda Pants, the visceral statements of Kikuko Tanaka, the humorous apocalypses of Marcus Kenny, the bold words of Nancy Flynn, the pressing urgency of Robert Kulesz, the enduring marks of David Bailin, the mementos and monuments of Kyle Coffin and Joseph Leroux, the clockwork perfection of Emily Ginsburg, the quiet intensity of Edwin Rostron, Mario Kolaric and Thera Webb, the humanity of Jonathan Wood Vincent, the minimalist seduction of James Gallagher, the perfected symbols and sounds of Yuko Otomo and Steve Dalachinksy, the strange surrealities of Derek Larson, the gut-wrecking prose of Ventral is Golden and Damien Knightley, the unabashed beauty of Robert Lucy, to the professed arbitrariness of Colin Oulighan, this volume covers the gamut of symbology and speaks to the underlying notion that we all are highly aware of our public and personal icons-whatever they may be.

Thank you to each and every person who made this volume possible including our generous fundraiser contributors.

~Cat Gilbert, Editor and Publisher

Dario Azzellini, Immanuel Ness & Victor Wallis
Capitalism would have us believe we need our bosses. This volume, edited by Immanuel Ness and Dario Azzellini, reveals the history of workers who dare to disagree. From the dawning of the industrial epoch, wage earners have gone so far as to challenge the very premises of the system by creating institutions of democratic self-management aimed at controlling production without bosses. With specific examples drawn from every corner of the globe and every period of modern history, this new book comprehensively traces this often underappreciated historical tradition.

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.

Support This Project: Secret City, Robert Lucy

I’m so pleased to present one of my personal favorite’s, Robert Lucy.

Lucy studied with Ed Paschke at Northwestern and eventually headed to SAIC to finish. His works are somewhere between altarpieces, meditations and still life’s on ordinary objects or people, and are influenced by mystic teachings, dreams and the inspiration of Lucy’s daily encounters.

For a full account of Lucy’s work, there happens to be an amazing timeline on his website that walks the viewer through the life of Robert Lucy (particularly great story in 2005.)

June 5-11

Vision Festival 16Arts For Art, Inc. presents the 16th annual Vision Festival, New York City’s premier multidisciplinary celebration of innovative jazz music, dance, poetry, and art, held for its third year at the Abrons. Critics have described it as “arguably the most important free-jazz fest in the U.S.” (Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader), and stated that “avant-garde jazz culture has no better colloquy in this country than the Vision Festival” (Nate Chinen, The New York Times).

Each year, the Vision Festival honors the achievements of one living artist who has greatly influenced the world around them and paved the way for other innovators to move forward. On Wednesday, June 8, Arts For Art and The Vision Festival will celebrate a Lifetime of Achievement by Peter Brotzmann. This great improviser was one of the first practitioners of the Free Jazz movement in Europe. Brotzmann has programmed his own evening in such a way that it would reflect his ongoing pursuit of musical innovation. This 70-year-old artist is not interested in looking back — only in looking forward and being as creative as possible in the present.

Visit visionfestival.org for more information and listings of Vision Festival events at satellite sites. (SEE FULL SCHEDULE.)

BEATRICE CORON AT MURIEL GUEPIN, OPENING SAT.

   

OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY APRIL 16, 2011 FROM 6:30 – 8 PM

NEW GROUP SHOW “JUXTAPOSED” FEATURING THE ARTWORK OF: BÉATRICE CORON AND ROBERT SZOT

ON VIEW FROM APRIL 16 – MAY 29, 2011

Muriel Guépin Gallery is pleased to announce “Juxtaposed” a new group show featuring the artwork of Béatrice Coron and Robert Szot. The opening reception is Saturday, April 16th from 6:30-8pm, and will be on view through May 29th.

Béatrice Coron’s paper cut images tell stories inventing situations, cities and worlds which all have their own logic and patterns. These compositions include memories, associations of words, ideas, observations and thoughts that unfold in improbable juxtapositions. Coron researchs collective memories and myths, questioning the notions of identity and belonging.

In her site-specific installation called “drifting Worlds” (displayed in the dramatic street level window of the gallery) the window is used not to see out but in, placing the spectator in an outsider/insider situation. Shadows, reminiscent of film noir and voyeurism, leaves room for multiple interpretations.

Béatrice Coron’s work has been purchased by major museum collections, such as the Metropolitan Museum, The Walker Art center and The Getty. She’s had numerous solo shows in galleries in the U.S.A., France and Japan.

Robert Szot will present his latest paintings called BLS (roman conflict). Szot’s oil paintings are wrestling with the conflict of impermanence. Szot’s methodology is primarily one of problem solving. Fine details are sometimes marred or sacrificed until the final composition has reached a more dynamic and complex resolution.Thin layers of activity and line drawing peer through a more dominant foreground of broad color fields. This process provides a depth that becomes sharper in definition over time.

Curator Robert Bunkin writes: “Robert Szot’s abstract paintings seem to come from the urban environment. They are reined in by architectonic structures, broad fields of color are interrupted by smaller gestures and idiosyncratic forms…his work has a palimpsest effect, where layers of previous activity bleed through the final layers of paint.”

Robert Szot lives and works in Brooklyn. He has exhibited throughout America and internationally. Szot has shown with The Painting Center and Melody Weir in New York and with the Saatchi Gallery in London. His work can be found in private collections worldwide. A portion of the artist’s proceeds will be donated to Rett Syndrome research.
