JUDY FOX: OUT OF WATER
October 27 – December 15, 2012
P.P.O.W is pleased to announce Out of Water, our sixth solo exhibition of figurative sculpture by Judy Fox. Well known for her exquisitely rendered human figures, including children that are at once iconic, psychological and subversive, Fox continues to explore mythological references that are used to reflect upon contemporary sociological issues. In her latest installations, virtuoso use of form extends to the surreal, with visual puns used to provoke conflicted emotional reactions. The centerpiece of this new installation is a comely standing life-size figure of a Mermaid. Legs pressed together as if fused into a tailfin, hands paddling downward, she looks dreamily over her entourage. A set of Worms spread out before her like the writhing sea horses that pull the chariot of a Greek sea goddess. They are curvy and sensual — some profiles resemble parts of naked human bodies.

Composer and pianist Lubomyr Melnyk is the pioneer of Continuous Music— a piano technique he has developed since the 70s that uses extremely rapid notes and note-series to create a tapestry of sound. Inspired by the minimal, phase and pattern musics of Steve Reich, Philip Glass, and Terry Riley, yet frustrated by the ecstatic detachment from reality they can encourage, Lubomyr Melnyk created Continuous Music, based in the innovations of the minimalist composers but with its roots more deeply planted in harmony. His first recordKMH: Piano Music in the Continuous Mode (Music Gallery Editions, 1978) is the fruition of the idea he began developing in 1974 reimagines the sentiment expressed by Reich in his watershed Music for 18 Musicians, realized entirely for Solo Piano. Overtones blend or clash according to the harmonic changes. The technique of mastering his complex note patterns and speeds makes his music difficult for the normal pianist, and the kinetic athleticism of Melnyk’s performance is unparalleled.
Friday, Oct 26 at 6pm – Opening
Saturday/Sunday Oct 27/28 from 3pm to 7:30pm – Installation
A small coupling of works combining both obsolete and new technologies, then reassembled to represent obsolete fables, folklore, literature, philosophy, mythology, and music. As responses to such stories inspired by the observation of human behavior, symbolic animals, objects and mechanics are used to further illustrate their foibles and behavioral patterns, whether expected or unpredictable.

We are so pleased to present the first incarnation of The 22 Playlist. Our first playlist speaks to love and third degree burns respectively. Ranging from the brain melting effects of Je suis le Petit Chevalier’s (Felicia Atkinson), “A Guide to the Sun” to a lethargic lullaby from Bee and Flowers’s most recent “Suspension,” to a parched call for joy from Franz Nicolay’s most recent album “Do the Struggle,” this playlist travels the spectrum of blind love.

Where: The Firehouse Space
When: June 16, 2012 8:00 pm
Fuse Ensemble is a concept-based new music/new media performing ensemble. Each season a concept is presented, giving voice to new music composers and creating musical happenings with visual elements of live, interactive video and/or kinetic installations. The musicians of Fuse perform on an eclectic mix of flute, clarinet, electric violin, electric guitar, cello, piano, electronic playback, percussion, and invented instruments. Linked by the insane possibilities of software such as MaxMSP/Jitter, using sensors on the musicians and live interactive cameras on stage, the artists create an experience that fuses sound, video and humans into a liquefied state and gives each concept a setting — a visual and kinetic environment to experience it in that furthers communication
and unifies the concept.

Ban Fracking in NY State!
Where: 7408 Fifth Avenue, Bay Ridge
When: Thursday, June 14, at 4 p.m.
Fracking poses a serious threat to our drinking water, our agricultural land, and our air quality. It adds to our greenhouse gas emissions, and pushes us even further away from renewable energy solutions.
We need to persuade key Albany legislators to ban fracking in New York State. One of those key legislators is Brooklyn’s State Senator Martin Golden. Join Climate Action/Brooklyn For Peace and New Yorkers Against Fracking as we send a message to Senator Golden: Save Our Water! Ban Fracking Now!
Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Musik Im Bauch
Where: Naumberg Bandshell, Central Park, Manhattan
When: June 21
Karlheinz Stockhausen‘s 1975 music-theatre work Musik Im Bauch (“Music in the Belly”) for six percussionists places its audience in an outré fairly-tale dream world. The piece was inspired by a game Stockhausen played with his two-year-old daughter, Julika, in which the composer listened to the sounds in her noisy stomach. Seven years later, Stockhausen conceived Musik Im Bauch during a dream. A loose narrative defines the transformation into humanity of three automatons, who attack a giant bird-man, named Miron, savagely cutting open his stomach and pulling out 3 music boxes which play melodies based on the signs of the Zodiac.
Selma Parlour and Yelena Popova
Where: Horton Gallery
When: Jun 14 – Jul 14, 2012
Horton Gallery is pleased to announce a two-person exhibition featuring the work of London based painter Selma Parlour and Nottingham based multi-media artist Yelena Popova.

NELSON LOSKAMP: Horror Girls
Where: LAUNCH F18
When: June 12 – July 28, 2012

Nelson Loskamp is known for his dynamic relationship with the figure. He has executed work in a multitude of media within the parameters of individualistic style and cultural visual stigmas. Horror Girls comes from an interpretation of still shots from an assortment of 1960’s horror films. Loving the style in these B films, Nelson considers the 60’s hair and make-up in their depicted period settings and recreates them in haunting paintings that are both
beautiful and macabre.

When: June 14-July 20, 2012
Reception June 14, 6-8pm.
When: June 19
From ancient underground rivers and forgotten quarry tunnels to modern sewers and utility networks, the underground layers of the world’s great cities are full of places that are usually unseen, but that reveal the city’s history in new and startling ways. These hidden layers of the urban environment can teach us about how cities grow and function, and can provide a new perspective that highlights the ways that our daily experience in any city shapes– and is shaped by– the built environment around us.
ERIK SCHOONEBEEK: PHANTOM HAND
Where: Jeff Bailey Gallery
When: June 14 – July 13, 2012, Opening Reception: Thursday, June 14 6-8 pm
Jeff Bailey Gallery is pleased to present Erik Schoonebeek: Phantom Hand. This is his first solo exhibition in New York, featuring paintings and drawings made on found paper, old book covers and other materials. Schoonebeek is influenced by contemporary advertising images, especially those seen while driving: road signs, billboards, commercial graphics, logos and posters. Although these images and graphic symbols are designed to communicate in some way, for Schoonebeek they become enmeshed with one another and change, as he says, “ into autonomous images that confront you with a blank stare”. From this source material, Schoonebeek forms his own imagery that hovers between recognizable graphic cues and amorphous narrative.

BLUE NOTE JAZZ FESTIVAL & NOLAFUNK/CEG PRESENT: LEON REDBONE
Where: June 23, 2012 , 7:30 pm
When: June 23
For decades, Leon Redbone has remained musically resonant and personally elusive. Although his iconic guise of white fedora, jacket, and sunglasses has been thoroughly satirized, it’s easy to overlook what a genuinely gifted artist he remains — a role he inevitably tries to downplay.
To the Stars on the Wings of an Eel
Where: The Gowanus Ballroom
When: June 29th–July 7th, 2012
Throughout its history the Gowanus has inspired both utopian dreams and dystopian nightmares. The past four-hundred years have witnessed the site’s transformation from a fertile series of tidal wetlands to one of the busiest industrial waterways in the United States. The canal, once a source for sustenance and hope, is today tainted by a notorious legacy of pollution and decay.
THE ENCHANTED ORGAN: A PORN OPERA
Where: Dixon Place
When:Friday-Saturday, June 22-23, 9:30pm
The Enchanted Organ” is a burlesque opera that celebrates sexuality and satirizes the porn industry, while parodying four hundred years of the operatic tradition. Composer/librettist team Gordon Beeferman and Charlotte Jackson, with director Beth Greenberg, bring their trademark wit and polymorphous perversity to this journey through “the Magical Kingdom of Porn,” a place where past and present, straight and queer, and dead and living converge. Bridging the gap between “high” art and “low,” we puncture the turgid balloon of “traditional” opera and revivify the flaccid clichés of porn. Drawing on influences as diverse as classic 70s porn soundtracks, Monteverdi, and Ancient Greek hymns, and bridging the worlds of opera, drag, and striptease, this work-in-progress is as close as you’ll get (or want to get!) to “aural sex.”
Three Colorists: curated by Michael Walls — Eozen Agopian, Alan Kleiman, Diane Mayo
Where: Lesley Heller Workspace
When: June 6 – July 6, 2012, Opening Reception: Wednesday, June 6, 6-8pm
Three Colorists, curated by Michael Walls, highlights the work of three artists who have several things in common: they began their professional life as painters; the oeuvre of each importantly involves the role of color; and the work of each is not only labor intensive, but also revealing of a hard-won mastery of the chosen craft.
LABAPALOOZA! MINI FESTIVAL OF NEW PUPPET THEATER FROM THE LAB

Masterpiece Theater Curated by: Geoffrey Young
Where: Morgan Lehman
When: May 31 – June 30
If theatrical is the question, masterpiece is the answer. Modesty in art is over-rated, as anyone with a Schnabel complex knows, so be prepared for the challenge of ascertaining the significance of what these artists have been cooking up over the past four months. Yes, each can draw, paint, and employ color to bold effect, but that’s of secondary importance (the least we can expect of an artist). What drives these artists is Imagination. Another word for imagination is risk, another word for risk is danger, another word for danger is aesthetics. And aesthetics, as we know, is for the birds. But these artists aint tweeting.
Thurston Moore + Bill Nace + Joe McPhee
When: May 31, 8pm
Three pillars of the noise and avant-jazz scene collide : Thurston Moore, singer/songwriter/guitarist for Sonic Youth, teams up with free-noise guitarist Bill Nace and avant-jazz saxophonist Joe McPhee for an evening of mind bending cacophony.
