MORE EVENTS:

Trenton Doyle Hancock 
James Cohan
November 8 – December 22, 2012

For this exhibition, Hancock departs from the ongoing epic narrative that has guided his work for the past decade. Here, he creates a body of new paintings that reveal the creator of the myth and demystify the author. …And Then It All Came Back To Me expands on metaphysical interpretations of the artist’s dreams, the invented symbolic language that has long been a hallmark of the work, and most notably on the idea of self-portraiture as exploration of the artist-as-archetype.


The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival
November 10, 2012 12- 7 pm
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church (275 North 8th Street)

The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival is a one-day festival of cartoon and graphic art featuring artists and publishers displaying and selling publications; lectures and conversations on comics; and associated exhibits and satellite events.

Sans Objet
BAM
Nov 9—Nov 10, 2012

At once ominous and strangely beautiful, Aurélien Bory’s Sans Objet is an acrobatic dialogue between man and machine. Situated onstage, a large object shrouded in black plastic begins to move—its robot head peering out into the audience, exuding an eerie sentience. Two men in suits appear, responding to the object (a real-life automotive prototype from the 1970s) with a language of precise, mechanized movement. Soon enough, the men and the machine move in tandem, performing a captivating ballet between soul and steel that examines where one stops and the other begins.

Ned Rothenberg Chamber Music Retrospective
Roulette
Friday, November 9 and 10th

Known for his virtuosic performances on alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet and the shakuhachi, internationally acclaimed composer/performerNed Rothenberg presents a two night retrospective of his chamber music along with world premieres of new works.  Rothenberg’s music has been presented at hundreds of concerts throughout North and South America, Europe, and Japan, while his unique approach to woodwind performance – including techniques like manipulation of multiphonics, circular breathing, and overtone control – have led him to perform with everyone from John Zorn, Marc Ribot, Tony Buck, Marty Ehrlich and Bobby Previte amongst others.

Dan Deacon: Height With Friends, Chester Endersby Gwazda, Alan Resnick
Music Hall of Williamsburg
Nov 14th

Dan Deacon is an outstanding composer. He is also a goddamned instigator. So while he made his Carnegie Hall debut this year, a few weeks later he was getting 10,000 people to do crazy dances at a massive Occupy Wall Street rally in Union Square. Deacon has always made trailblazing music that moves people to do things they wouldn’t normally do. But on his new album, America, he takes that idea a giant step further. “I hope the people who take the time to listen to these songs enjoy them,” says Deacon, “but I hope that anyone looking for anything beyond that can find inspiration to change the world for the better.”

SAKHIOBA ENSEMBLE
Barbes
Sun 11/11

The Georgian ensemble includes polyphonic folk songs, liturgical chants, folk-dances, and traditional instruments from the various regions of Georgia, a remote mountainous country located along the historic silk route on the Eastern shore of the Black Sea between Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Russia. It has one of the world’s most ancient and arresting singing traditions, featuring dark, sonorous vocal qualities and startling, unexpected harmonies. “Sakhioba is one of the brightest jewels in Georgia’s crown. Their mastery of an astonishingly varied palette of unusual vocal techniques is formidable.” Caroline Bithell, University of Manchester

3rd Annual RE/Mixed Media Festival
November 10, 2012
Brooklyn Lyceum

The RE/Mixed Media Festival is a celebration of collaborative art-making and creative appropriation. It’s the artists’ contribution to the ongoing conversation about remixing, mashups, copyright law, fair use, and the freedom of artists to access their culture in order to add to and build upon it.

Control Group: Observing, Measuring and Attempting to Control the Natural World
Sunday, November 11 at 7:30pm
Union Docs

This program of experimental videos presented by the Video Data Bank explores the natural world around us and how humans attempt to measure and control it.  The artists turn their cameras toward natural environments and human built spaces to explore the intersections between the two.

EYE CANDY
Fowler Arts Collective
NOV. 10 – 18, 2012

Fowler Arts Collective is pleased to present Eye Candy an exhibition of 25 illustrators sponsored by the Society of Illustrators during NYC’s Illustration Week 2012. They know it’s wrong, but they love it anyway. Eye Candy presents 25 young illustrators who have pulled back the shades to reveal their secret guilty pleasures of life in NYC. With common threads of industry and age, each artist is making waves in the illustration community. Their commissioned work ranges from editorial to poster design to comics and more, and their futures in the field seem bigger than the city they live in. Out of their comfort zones and on display, the illustrators have created a personal narrative of a single lowbrow for your viewing pleasure. Eye Candy.

Missy Mazzoli: “Song from the Uproar” album release concert
Le Poisson Rouge
Nov 11th

Come celebrate the release of the original cast recording of Missy Mazzoli’s new opera, Song from the Uproar, on New Amsterdam Records, with performances by mezzo-soprano Abigail Fischer, NOW Ensemble, projections by Stephen Taylor, and a special opening set by noir songsmith Aaron Roche (recently back from tours with Sufjan Stevens, Mike Watt and Ariel Pink). Inspired by the life and writings of early 20th-century Swiss adventurer Isabelle Eberhardt, Song from the Uproar premiered in a sold-out run at New York venue The Kitchen in a Beth Morrison Projects world-premiere production last February.

Tiffany Bozic – Transformation
Joshua Liner

We are back at the gallery and so fortunate to be able to reschedule Tiffany Bozic’s opening reception this week. Thankfully the artist was able to coordinate travel plans and will be in attendance. Also, we’ve just received copies of her new monograph Drawn by Instinct–so many things to be thankful for! We hope you are all taking care of yourselves and that you’re available to join us and celebrate this Thursday.

Aural Dystopia: Release Party: Iron Dog’s Interactive Rock Album
JACK
November 10, 8pm

Release party for Iron Dog’s new album Interactive Rock Album featuring Iron Dog, The Home of East Credit, and Briggan Krauss/Jim Black! Iron Dog (Bernstein/Popejoy/Drury) creates spontaneous soundscapes where minimalist structures erupt into psychedelic onslaughts. The multiple roles of each performer are in full effect: Stuart Popejoy maneuvers synthesizer and bass collisions, Sarah Bernstein delivers distorted violin and enigmatic spoken word, and Andrew Drury commands a sonic sphere of drums and manipulated materials. The Brooklyn-based trio has been together since 2009.
