Styled after 1920s German Expressionist films, Im Schatten der Made (In the Shadow of the Maggot) tells the story of an artificial creature, an automaton that is created from biological materials and resembles a human. For falling in love with a human, the android is brutally punished and destroyed, while his human lover Merle is incarcerated and humiliated. In great secrecy, Merle attempts to recreate her loverʼs body out of saliva and bread with surprising consequences…

Screening, Reading, and Book Launch / Adventures in the Orgasmatron, with Christopher Turner

Date: Tuesday, 28 June 2011, 7–9 pm
Location: Cabinet, 300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn (map and directions here)
FREE. No RSVP necessary

Please join us for the launch of Cabinet editor Christopher Turner’s book Adventures in the Orgasmatron (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), which tells the story of the pre-1960s sexual revolution in the US, one led by expatriated European thinkers who saw a vast country ripe for liberation.

Central to this narrative is the orgone box—a tall, slender construction of wood, metal, and steel wool. A person who sat in the box, it was thought, could elevate his or her “orgastic potential”—ridding the body of repressive forces and improving sexual potency. Norman Mailer, Saul Bellow, J. D. Salinger, Allen Ginsberg, and William Burroughs sat in an orgone box, seeking synthesis of sexual and political liberation. Woody Allen satirized it as the Orgasmatron.

Christopher Rodrigues @ RARE GALLERY.

June 30 – August 12

RARE Gallery is pleased to announce “. . . all of you on the good Earth,” an exhibition of Planets, a series of otherworldly photo-collaged digital images by British/Canadian artist Christopher Rodrigues. The show, which runs from June 30 to August 12, marks Rodrigues’ solo debut at the gallery.

The exhibition’s title directly references the Apollo 8 crew’s 1968 Christmas Eve address that was broadcast live from the Command Module during lunar orbit as the Earth came into view over the Moon’s horizon. Much like the televised images beamed back to Earth during the mission, Rodrigues’ focus is on a planetary view of nature, where the entire solar system is home to isolated, Eden-like environments, inherently sick places, and those made uninhabitable because of human interference.

“Bleeding Hearts” was conceived and curated by Brooklyn indie rock band Futurist as a walk-through experience for their album War Is Yesterday. It will include nine rooms featuring a wide array of artists and performers.

“Bleeding Hearts” takes place June 30 from 8-11:30pm at Rebel NYC (251 W 30th Street, 2nd Floor) and music and performance will keep going until 4am. Grab your tickets here!

6 to Midnight with VIP After Party
Concept by Jason Patrick Voegele

Much of what we know and how we learn comes through the study of explicit or subtle comparisons and contrasts. Meaningful opportunities for these comparative studies invite us into a more explicit and intentional approach that can both broaden our understanding of contemporary American art and help us draw connections and distinctions between the studio practices and conceptual intentions of today’s American Artist.
