1. Martha Wilson, FF Director, at conference on Free Expression, Nov 20, 21.

NAJP To Host Nov. 20-21 Conference On Issues Of Free Expression In The Arts

Disputes about free expression in the arts have always loomed as struggles between creativity and repression, transgression and outrage, candor and hypocrisy. From "Lady Chatterley's Lover" to Andres Serrano's "Piss Christ," the sequence has been predictable: Scandalized citizens, religious leaders or politicians fire an opening salvo of protest or funding cuts. Then artists, invoking the muses and the First Amendment, fire back, accusing their accusers of obtuseness and mindless censorship.

While high-profile shootouts at art museums and less visible skirmishes at libraries and theaters persist, overt censorship is no longer the only, or the most dire, threat to free expression. The current terrain bears little resemblance to the "culture war" battlegrounds of a decade ago, much less to what the First Amendment's framers could have imagined.

The NAJP will address this ever-shifting terrain in "The New Gatekeepers: A Conference on Free Expression in the Arts," Nov. 20 and 21 at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. The conference will bring together a cross-disciplinary group of participants -- artists, technologists, media executives, lawmakers, museum curators, theater producers, legal experts, government regulators, free-speech advocates, and of course journalists -- to explore the shifting frontiers of free-expression in the arts and search for workable solutions for the future. Schedule and registration information can be found at: http://www.najp.org/conferences/gatekeepers/panels.htm

5. Franc Palaia, FF Alumn, new mural in the City of Poughkeepsie

Franc Palaia has just completed a large outdoor mural commissioned by the City of Poughkeepsie, New York. The mural is 130'x16' and depicts historical storefronts of famous businesses that existed in downtown Poughkeepsie around the turn of the century. One of the seven architectural facades is the Smith Brother's Restaurant, of Smith Brother's Cough Drops fame, who were originally from Poughkeepsie. Olde Main Street Mural is located in the center of downtown Poughkeepsie near the intersection with Market Street the other main thoroughfare. The mural faces west and is perpendicular to Main St. Franc plans to paint up to three more murals by next October.

They look normal. They have strange hobbies, They try just a bit too hard to blend in. If you have one in your house, your life may turn into a psychedelic folk myth. May be you're in love with one already? The 'deceptively' naive love story between Japanese 'OL' (Office Lady) and strange English anthropologist. With original(mostly) songs and Kazuko's handmade computer animation!! Accompanied by Christopher Koh on violin.

Time Out Critics' Choice
Fairly kooky and complexly delightful. Lit up with a romantic, care-free humour that can only inspire the highest of spirits.

Guardian
4 stars!!!! A delightfully flimsy, homemade feel.

Evening Standard
Beguiling. Idiosyncratic and gently innovative, this is a delightful trip to an imaginative universe where - among other attributes - one hour feels like a mere five minutes

What's On
A theatrical romantic comedy with moments of profundity and dazzling invention. Hohki's performance is a very quiet tour des force. Go see.

11. James Scruggs, FF Alumn, presents Disposable Men at HERE, November 12th.

James Scruggs will perform an excerpt from Disposable Men, directed by Alice Eve Cohen at Here Arts Center, Spring Street and 6th Avenue on November 12, 2002 as a part of a group show, New Dance Alliance Performance Mix 2002 Disposable Men is a solo theatre performance piece with radical audience participation. The piece explores the amazing similarities that black American men and traditional Hollywood monsters share. They are both feared, have been given negative attributes larger then life, and are regularly killed in unusual ways without remorse.

James Scruggs produced a multi channel video installation called Disposable Men, a piece about the mayor approved NYC police shootings of unarmed black men. It had a private screening in DUMBO in May of 2000. In August of 2000, with Robert Penn, a documentary film they produced, Black Pride was shown at Anthology Film Archives. In May of 2002 he performed Disposable Men, the performance piece, at BAX Theatre in Brooklyn. The performance incorporates some elements of the installation, but is a very different experience. Disposable Men the performance piece, historically correct is written and conceived by James Scruggs. In June of 2002 he performed an original work he has written called Touchscape, at Here, in downtown Manhattan, it is a solo theatre piece using spoken word with video, a raw, close-up emotional snapshot of the sensual life of several contemporary urban men. In June of 2002 based on Disposable Men he was awarded a grant from Franklin Furnace to complete a major work in New York State in 2002-2003.

12. Dyke Action Machine, FF Alumn, at DiverseWorks, November 1st-December 14th.

"STRAIGHT TO HELL: 10 Years of Dyke Action Machine!" travels to DiverseWorks, Houston, TX

Straight to Hell: 10 Years of Dyke Action Machine!
November 1 through December 14, 2002

Houston, Texas (November 1, 2002) DiverseWorks celebrates a decade of in-your-face activism by New York's Dyke Action Machine! (DAM!) with the opening of "Straight to Hell: 10 Years of Dyke Action Machine!" The exhibition will be presented in DiverseWorks' Project Space from November 1 - December 14, 2002 and will open in conjunction with "UN Real Estates," an exhibition of sculpture by Maria Elena Gonzalez. Artists in both exhibitions will be on hand for the opening reception on Friday, November 1 from 7-9 PM.

"Straight to Hell: 10 Years of Dyke Action Machine!" originated last spring at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco. The exhibition takes the form of a mixed media retrospective featuring artwork from DAM!'s annual public art projects, including "Do You Love the Dyke in Your Life?" (1993), "Straight to Hell" (1994), "Gay Marriage: You Might As Well Be Straight" (1997), and "GYNADOME" (2002).

To coincide with the DAM! retrospective at DiverseWorks, the agitprop duo will launch a citywide public campaign. Five thousand red-white-and-blue bumper stickers link the impending Iraqi conflict to America's car culture -- how many people will be willing sport "S.U.V.=WWIII" on the back of their gas-guzzling vehicle? Lucky Houstonians will find DAM!'s 2002 intervention slipped under their windshield wiper.

Dyke Action Machine! is a two-person public art collaboration between photographer Sue Schaffner and painter Carrie Moyer. Since 1991, DAM!'s culture-jamming campaigns have dissected mainstream media tropes by inserting lesbian images and content into recognizably commercial contexts. DAM!'s widely-distributed poster campaigns riffing on outdoor advertising, movie posters, and public service announcements have been a seamless part of New York City's visual landscape for the past decade.

Jane magazine calls DAM!'s projects "awesome activist artwork," and Art Forum notes that DAM!'s campaigns are "effectual reminders that k.d. lang is not the only lesbian in the world." Over the past ten years, DAM!'s projects have been featured at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum; Exit Art; Le Magasin, Centre National d'Art Contemporain de Grenoble, France; Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, Aachen, Germany; The Smithsonian; University Art Museum at UC Berkeley; and White Columns.

16. Reverend Billy, FF Alumn, Church Party, November 10, 56 Walker Street.

Join Our Congregation In A Pre-Broadcasting Revel. Our kick-off for taping REVEREND BILLY'S PEACE REVIVAL (for Free Speech TV and the Dish Network) is 7 PM, Sunday, November 10th at 56 Walker Street, on the 5th floor. This is between Church and Broadway, just below Canal, close to subways A, 6, N & R. This is a CHURCH PARTY, and you must dress "crazy formal."

The Question Of Hatwear
Everyone must wear a hat. Bouncers will force hats down on the skulls of the are-headed. The music will make your hat tremble and blur -- the food and drink will keep your mouth working? and a tour of The Museum of Dismaying Stop Shopping Stunts, from the subway sermons to the Tishman Auditorium lock-out, from Kurt Vonnegut's sainthood on the 9/11anniversary to the hoisting of balls onto the Washington Monument, from the Michigan Theater Festival Inside Starbucks created by Savitri Durkee, to Tony Torn's recitation of The Raven from the scaffolding of the Poe House construction site.

The Question Of Money
We are making progress toward the $50,000 these TV shows will cost. The Party Ticket is sliding scale: $200 or $75 or $10 or $2.98. If a hat is forced on you, you must pay the cost of that hat, and you can imagine how bad this makes us feel, to sell you that hat, from our position as members of the stop shopping cult. However, our sinning is very complex. Amen.

The projet MOBILIVRE-BOOKMOBILE project is a community arts initiative founded by the BOOKMOBILE collective, a diverse group of emerging North American artists and community activists. The project aims to introduce communities to the world of independent publishing and production and equip individuals with new skills for self-expression.

23. Cary Peppermint, FF Alumn, at SmackMellon, November 8th, 8 pm

A Technolecture. An Exposure. A Seance.
Our operation will commence 11.08.02 at 20:00, #56 Water Street, in a converted warehouse beneath the Brooklyn Bridge. There will be two of us. We will synchronize our watches. We will arrive on time. We will identify ourselves as "Conductor Number Seventeen." We will say, "This is a Technolecture. This is an Exposure. This is a Seance. Now Everyone get down on the floor." We will occupy the location with consumer technologies. We will apply creative solutions. We will use these technologies beyond the limits of their prescription. We will set up conditions. However, we will maintain an openness toward negotiation. Some witnesses may resist, some will inevitably be lost. It is our hope that some will recognize our call and apply memory toward others who came before us and who demonstrated in a similar faith and understanding. We have accepted failure into our design. We are not "playing to win." The moment may not hold us. History may call us traitors. History may not call on us at all. These are the dangers of performance. These are the risks incurred by dividing time so succinctly. This is the terror of decision making.
