Where (we) Live
BAM
Paula Greif, ceramics (Dec 19)
Marsha Trattner, blacksmith (Dec 20)
Riccardo Vecchio, painter (Dec 21)
Victoria Valencia, woodworker/furniture-maker (Dec 22)

Masters at crafting alluring sonic landscapes from the most unlikely found objects, Brooklyn-based quartet Sō Percussion explores the idea of home with a bold experiment in collaborative art-making. Directed by three-time Obie Award winner Ain Gordon (Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell), Where (we) Live invites artistic colleagues working in different mediums to participate as both co-collaborator and muse in Sō’s creative process and performance: Grey Mcmurray (itsnotyouitsme, Knights on Earth) writes poignant, personal songs; Martin Schmidt’s videos show the quirky and unnoticed beauty in our homes; and Emily Johnson delivers secret instructions to the performers onstage. Each evening will also feature a special guest artist (listed below). To these and other contributions, Sō adds an astounding range of composed and improvised sounds, inspired by the physical and symbolic places we live.

JOHN HODGMAN: THAT IS ALL

The Bell House

Not even John Hodgman, the Daily Show’s resident expert, knows for sure. But he is keeping John Cusack prisoner in his home, just in case. And on December 21, he will perform what is likely to be the last night of comedy entertainment ever.

Higher Pictures
Thursday, December 13, 6 – 8 pm

Higher Pictures presents the first solo exhibition by Letha Wilson. Wilson uses photography as a material medium combining photographic images of nature, prints, paint, concrete and wood in a dimensional manner to examine the made world.My artwork uses images I have photographed in the natural landscape as a starting point for interpretation and confrontation. The work creates relationships between architecture and nature, the gallery space and the American wilderness. In the photo-based sculptures the ability for a photograph to transport the viewer is both called upon, and questioned; sculptural intervention attempts to compensate for the photographʼs failure to encompass the physical site it represents. Landscape photography as a genre is approached with equal parts reverence and skepticism.

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.

Photographing the Dead: The History of Postmortem Photography from The Burns Collection and Archive
Postmortem photography, photographing a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. These photographs, from the beginning of the practice until now, are special mementos that hold deep meaning for mourners through visually “embalming” the dead. Although postmortem photographs make up the largest group of nineteenth-century American genre photographs, until recent years they were largely unseen and unknown. Dr. Burns recognized the importance of this phenomenon in his early collecting when he bought his first postmortem photographs in 1976. Since that time he has amassed the most comprehensive collection of postmortem photography in the world and has curated several exhibits and published three books on the subject: the Sleeping Beauty series. Tonight, Dr. Burns will speak about the practice of postmortem photography from the 19th century until today and share hundreds of images from his collection.
