The SculptureCenter Prize is given annually to a talented yet under-recognized New York Artist.

7. RENO, Carmelita Tropicana, FF Alumns, at BAX Award Ceremony, Nov. 7, 7:30 pm

BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange announces its SECOND ANNUAL BAXten ARTS & ARTISTS IN PROGRESS AWARDS to take place Thursday, November 7 at 7:30 p.m. The award event will take place at the Mark Morris dance Center. Awards will be given in three categories: Artists: Reno & Marlies Yearby; Arts Education: Ana Maria Alavarez & Martha Bowers; Arts Management: Ellie Covan & Virginia Louloudes. Susan Glass, former Executive Director of NYC Department of Cultural Affair's Materials for the Arts will receive and Honorary BAXten award.

THE BAXten AWARDS have been designed to honor individuals in the arts who have revealed and transformed our creative world. By instigating and enduring change they have deepened the definition of their field and paved the way for others. The 2002 awardees have all selected an individual, organization or entity to receive a PASSING IT ON AWARD. The PASSING IT ON FUND allows each year's recipients in the 3 categories -- ARTIST, ARTS EDUCATION & ARTS MANAGEMENT -- to financially assist others in their field that exemplify the same criteria that the awardees were chosen for. This year's recipients are: Brooklyn International HS teacher Leah Osman; Lifelines Community Arts Project; the collaboration of Marga Gomez & Carmelita Tropicana; Nia Love; a newly developed fund for arts administrators in the name of Susan Kennedy; Elizabeth Zimmer; and Harriet Taub.

PASSING IT ON AWARDEES:
A fund for arts administrators is being developed in the name of SUSAN KENNEDY (chosen by Virginia Louloudes). Ms. Kennedy, who passed away in March 2002, was a manager of marketing and public relations at the Theater Development Fund, manager if the Arts & Entertainment Cable Network, director of development at La MAMA Etc., development consultant for Creative Time Inc., program officer for the New York Community Trust, and a devoted Ping Chong and Company board member.

LIFELINES COMMUNITY ARTS PROJECT (chosen by Ana Maria Alvarez), founded in 1982, grew out of an awareness of the lack of cultural opportunities for families and youth in Sunset Park. Based at M.S. 136, the "LifeLines" project is a comprehensive year-round model that aims to help participants gain competence in a variety of art forms through free access to quality instruction and long-term relationships with artists.

NIA LOVE (chosen by Marlies Yearby) has created over 30 dance works. She is founder and director of BIA Love Residue and also tours as a solo artist, She has taught in the US and abroad at Smith and Bates Colleges, University of Dakar at Senegal among others. She recently completed a multimedia, site specific performance project with visual artist Ed L and saxophonist Antoine Roney, and a collaborative project with choreographers Bebe Miller and Jawole Zollar and South African performers.

LEAH OSMAN (chosen by Martha Bowers), teacher at Brooklyn International High School (BIHS), has consistently supported the work of artists at BIHS. She uses her vacation time and after school free time to attend workshops and programs on the arts in order to deepen her practice of using drama in her classroom. In her own quietly fierce way, she has advocated for arts programs in the school and has deeply held belief that they are a valuable component of the curriculum.

HARRIET TAUB (chosen by Susan Glass) became the current Executive Director of Materials for the Arts after selling her children's clothing company, Bumblewear in 2001. MFA, a program of NYC's Department of Cultural Affairs, is housed in a 20,000 square foot former Ford assembly plant in Long Island City. It provides a place for corporations to donate what is called industrial discard to get a tax write-off and be assured that those materials will go to a non-profit or public school to use.

CARMELITA TROPICANA & MARGA GOMEZ (chosen by Reno) are two queer Latina artists who came together to explore themes that interested them both and to investigate what impact their unity might have. Their new work Single Wet Female, premiered at PS 122 this fall. Directed by David Schweizer, these dueling divas play "house" in a low rent thriller about perverted roommates. Dripping with suspense and simulated nudity Single Wet Female was too moist to miss!

ELIZABETH ZIMMER (chosen by Ellie Covan) is a senior editor at the Village Voice. She writes for the Voice, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and other publications. She is the author of Body Against Body: The Dance and Other Collaborations of Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane (Station Hill Press, 1989), and Dance: A Social Study, a curriculum for language arts and social studies teachers in the middle school. She edited the text of Envisioning Dance for Film and Video, a collection of essays about recording dance on film and video accompanied by a DVD, due from Routledge this fall. She has studied many forms of dance.

8. Lynne Tillman, FF Alumn, reads and signs her new book with artwork by Jane Dickson, Kiki Smith, Barbara Ess, and Barbara Kruger, Nov. 13th, 7:30 PM.

You are cordially invited to a reading & book signing for
THIS IS NOT IT Stories by Lynne Tillman

With artwork by: Kiki Smith, Jane Dickson, Jessica Stockholder, Diller & Scofidio, Laura Letinsky, Peter Dreher, Roni Horn, Stephen Ellis, Juan Munoz, Vik Muniz, Silvia Kolbowski, Jeff Koons, James Welling, Aura Rosenberg, Barbara Ess, Barbara Kruger, Dolores Marat, Haim Steinbach, Gary Schneider, Marco Breuer, Stephen Prina and Linder Sterling

Wednesday, Nov. 13th at 7:30 p.m.
At Barnes &Noble
4 Astor Place

In This Is Not It, Lynne Tillman's collection of 20 years' worth of important and compelling short stories and novellas, the protagonists seduce you into their lives and thoughts. Engaging, funny, elegant, and ironic, Tillman takes the reader to new heights of wit and meaning through staccato phrases, grammatical twists, and sensuous language. Familiar worlds of honesty, deceit, dark humor, pleasure, pain, confusion, dependence, love, and lust each play decisive roles in her believable fictions. In "Come and Go", three characters and an author collide. In "Pleasure Isn't A Pretty Picture," the reader is treated to a he/she meditation on the one-night stand. And "Dead Sleep" is truly an insomniac's worst nightmare.

A twin act on a double bill, This Is Not It is a collection of innovative and stand-alone writing that also engages and matches wits with some of the best contemporary artists. Each story has been paired with a piece of contemporary art and is introduced by it's own fully realized cover. Since 1982, acclaimed novelist Tillman has created these unique narratives that are a parallel universe to the contemporary art world. Maybe they're analogues or dialogues, maybe fictions inspired by art, maybe reflections, or meditations--but whatever they're called, like Borges's fictions, they are their own worlds, too. Tillman has marked out terrain of her own, which this collection celebrates. Full of life and art, This Is Not It is illuminating, bold, subtle, and riotous.

Lynne Tillman is the author of novels Haunted House; Motion Sickness; Cast in Doubt; and No Lease on Life, a New York Times Notable Book of 1998 and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award; and the story collections Absence Makes the Heart and The Madame Realism Complex. Her non-fiction books include The Velvet Years: Warhol's Factory 1965-1967 and The Broad Picture. Tillman's fiction is anthologized in, among others, The New Gothic, The Stories, and High Risk. She writes regularly on art, books and culture and contributes frequently to artists' books and museum catalogues. She lives in New York City.

"This is an illuminated manuscript as precise and clear as it is associative and mysterious, as funny as it is grave, as merciless as it is profoundly compassionate. At its heart is a marvelous uneasiness with the powers of art which Tillman and her collaborators, illuminators, inspirers, transform over and over into art of the most powerful kind. Every page contains luminous miracles, every page, while professing and plumbing despair, teaches, or rather, gives light. No writer is more elegant, beautiful or tough than Lynne Tillman, or more necessary." - Tony Kushner

"I'd been raised as a woman," says the narrator of "The Undiagnosed" at a costume ball, before she begins musing about the nature of men, as though "a woman" were something rather exotic. And part of the magic of Lynne Tillman's exactly told, highly nuanced stories is that our assumptions shift, the everyday becomes strange, paradox is embraced, hilarious insights are offered with quiet confidence, and the unexpected is always around the corner: a flamenco dancer, a shoemaker, a colored contact lens, or "handsome men putting out fires." Containing characters at once smart and fallible, and narrators with better than 20-20 vision, This Is Not It is completely engaging and profoundly entertaining. - Lydia Davis

Lynne Tillman has always been a hero of mine---not because I "admire" her writing (although I do very, very much), but because I feel it. Imagine driving alone at night. You turn on the radio and hear a song that seems to say it all. That's how I feel reading these stories. - Jonathan Safran Foer

Lynne Tillman's new stories are bracing, absurd, argumentative, and luminous. The new novella Come and Go is alone worth the price of admission. And Tillman's collaborations with visual artists make the book a record of her unique capacities for watchfulness, and for astonishment. Jonathan Lethem

Like an acupuncturist, Lynne Tillman knows the precise points into which to sink her delicate probes. - Edmund White

Lynne Tillman's writing uncovers hidden truths, reveals the unnameable, and leads us into her personal world of pain, pleasure, laughter, fear, and confusion, with a clarity of style that is both remarkable and exhilarating. Honest. Simple. Deep. Authentic. Daring . . . To read her is, in a sense, to become alive, because she lives so thoroughly in her work. Lynne Tillman is, quite simply, one of the best writers alive today. - John Zorn

Literature is a quirky thing and just when you start to believe it actually has been used up, along comes a writer, Lynne Tillman, whose work is so striking and original it transforms the way you see the world, the way you think about and interact with your surroundings . . . - The Los Angeles Reader

This Is Not It: Stories
by Lynne Tillman
Published by D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers
ISBN 1-891024-46-9, Hardcover, 6 x 8 inches, 256 pages, 24 color illustrations
Available at better bookstores and online at www.artbook.com
$27.50, Publication Date: November 2002

In keeping with Lynne Tillman's innovative approach to fiction, This Is Not It has been designed with an eye towards the subtly groundbreaking. Each story in this collection is inspired by a work of contemporary visual art, but rather than go the traditional route, simply reproducing each artwork alongside its respective text, This Is Not It does something completely unique. The frontispiece to each novella and short story is a mock book cover that incorporates the work of art in question; turn the page and the work is reproduced in full, un-cropped, and captioned. Then the story begins. In all there are 23 fully realized covers. In addition to the trade edition, D.A.P. will also be releasing a limited edition of the book which comes with a sheet of stickers (see inserted color illustration) representing all of the major book awards:
National Book Critics Circle Award
National Book Award
Pulitzer Prize
Oprah's Book Club
PEN/Faulkner Award
Booker Prize
Pick your winner. The choice is up to you! The limited edition will also be accompanied by an original, signed Polaroid self portrait of Lynne Tillman - similar to the one illustrated on the cover. We've had a ball putting this book together and we hope it brings readers as much joy as it has to us.

11. Matt Mullican, FF Alumn, one nite performance, Live Under Hypnosis, Nov 14, 7pm.

Matt Mullican
Live Under Hypnosis
One Night Performance
November 14th, 2002, 7 PM

Anton Kern Gallery
532 West 20th street
New York NY 10011
t. 212.367.9663
f. 212.367.8135

Anton Kern Gallery is proud to present a performance by Matt Mullican on November 14 at 7:00 pm. The artist will perform "under hypnosis". This will be his first performance under hypnosis in New York City since The Kitchen in 1982.

Matt Mullican began working with hypnosis in 1978 and has continued to the present having taken a break between 1982-1992. During this hiatus he began his involvement with virtual reality. Through these experiences he returned to his investigation of the hypnotic trance. Mullican's interest comes from the insertion of "self" into a media, as in video game culture; the induced state offers the experience of projecting oneself into a conceptual framework. Subjects of such performances have ranged from reliving early experiences, playing out ideas about what could happen later in his life, setting up conflicts that induce euphoria and repulsion, and exploring the relationship between context and experience in relationship to the hypnotic state. Mullican is attempting to break the patterns of every day life in order to expose underlying structures. Functioning as experiments, the performances are spontaneous and last anywhere from 10 minutes to as long as 1 1/2 hours in length. Mullican will be assisted by hypnotist Marcos Lutyens with whom he has been working for the past few years.

Thursday, November 14th, 2002 at 7 pm. The remains and results of the performance will stay in our viewing room until January 11th. For further information, please contact Fernanda Arruda or Michael Clifton at t.212.367.9663, f. 212.3678135 or email akern@jps.net.

12. Rev Billy, FF Alumn, Peace Revival, November 10th, 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 bare-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.
