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.

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

Described as maintaining a “rightful place at the crossroads of the shoegaze and post-punk revival” Astral’s 2011 release, “Forever After” from Vibraphone Records feels like a fast ride through a field full of flowers. The band currently lives in San Francisco and frontman, Dave Han took a moment to talk to Matt Mowatt about the project.

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.

Arts 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.

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