2. Cheri Gaulke and other FF Alumns in High Performance exhibit opening Feb 1.

Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions 6522 Hollywood Boulevard Los Angeles, California 90028 t] 323.957.1777 f] 323.957.9025 artleak.org

"High Performance: The First Five Years, 1978-1982"
Organized by Jenni Sorkin
Opening reception Saturday 1 February 2003, 6 to 8 pm
Exhibition runs 1 February - 30 March 2003

This project is part of Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions' special 25th Anniversary Series

"High Performance: The First Five
Years, 1978-1982," organized by Jenni Sorkin, reconsiders the first international magazine devoted exclusively to live performance art. Based in Los Angeles, High Performance magazine ran as a quarterly from 1978-1997. The magazine provided a forum for both local and international artists, many of whom in the years beyond the 1970s and early 1980s became known as prominent and highly influential artists.

Utilizing material from the High Performance archive, housed in Santa Monica, CA, as well as from the artists themselves, the exhibition examines the first five years of the magazine's history through correspondence, layouts, photographs, videos, artists' books, and other objects. With its radical, non-commercial status, performance art was, for much of the 1970s, an unrecognized discipline flourishing in both New York and Los Angeles, and Western Europe. Assembling performance documentation from a wide range of established and emerging artists, High Performance offered coverage to artists whose practices often challenged the boundaries, conventions, and silences of the established art world. Through live, body-based works, artists engaged experiences of autobiography, catharsis, and social injustice, challenging the ideological separations between art and life.

Operating on an open submission policy from its founding in 1978 until 1982, the magazine was a crucial publication that provided the necessary critical conditions needed to create and sustain an audience for the new genre. Through the publication of artists' texts, the magazine documented the performance art movement at its inception, and in the recent years after many key works had been completed. The magazine featured 15-80 artists per issue, providing a breadth and depth of materials previously unseen. A significant document, High Performance is a historical archive of seminal artists, but also a testament to passionate practice and independent activity. Artists include: Nancy Buchanan, Chris Burden, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Kim Jones, Suzanne Lacy, The Lesbian Art Project, Paul McCarthy, Linda M. Montano, Gina Pane, Rachel Rosenthal, Carolee Schneemann, Barbara T. Smith, the Waitresses, and others.

Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions' programming in 2003, the year the organization turns twenty-five, will be comprised of presentations that bring together artist alumni from this institution's rich history and younger artists whose careers are burgeoning. A conceptual continuum with the organization's founders will be emphasized as well as the legacy of this organization, founded to champion the presentation of new art and art forms. High Performance's crucial early coverage of LA's performance art scene documents, in tandem, a seminal period in Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions own history; nearly half of the artists featured in this show are alumni of Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, and many of the projects documented occurred under its auspices.

Founded the same year, in 1978, on the same principle, to provide a forum for new and innovative art that challenges artistic conventions, High Performance and Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions share a vital history. Fittingly, the institution's 25th Anniversary Series will be launched by "High Performance: The First Five Years, 1978-1982," followed in April by the presentation of "Small Skyscraper," a new sculptural/architectural work by renowned Los Angeles artist and alumni Chris Burden.

In conjunction with "High Performance: The First Five Years, 1978 - 1982," Irene Tsatsos has organized a performance series called "The Rebirth of Wonder" that will feature new work by Los Angeles artists. A calendar with participating artists, dates, and times will be available in January 2003. FF alumn Cheri Gaulke will present This is My Body and Feminist Art Workers.

Jenni Sorkin is an independent curator and freelance critic who has written for numerous art magazines and journals. The exhibition originated as an MA thesis exhibition at The Center for Curatorial Studies Museum, Bard College, in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. She is at work on a book about High Performance magazine and other art publications of the 1970s.

Admission to Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions is free with a recommended donation of $3.00 ($2.00 students, members free). Gallery hours are Wednesday - Sunday 12 - 6 pm, Friday 12 ? 9 pm. Call 323.957.1777 for parking information, directions, and additional information.

Glide, Jr. and Katrina D. Glide Foundation, the LEF Foundation, Los Angeles County Arts Commission, and the members of Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions.

6. Cary Peppermint, FF Alumn, at Collective Unconscious, Feb. 8th, 10 pm.

An evening with Cary Peppermint as he presents a raw, improvisational and "lite" version release of "Conductor Number Seventeen" the latest in his ongoing series of performances or "Technolectures."

Saturday February 8th, 2003, 10PM - $5.00 Admission
Collective Unconscious, 145 Ludlow Street, NYC - 212.254.5277

Conductor Number Seventeen is Cary Peppermint's latest version in a continuing series of multi-media performances first conceived by the artist for "PORT", a pioneering exhibition of new media technologies and online strategies initiated by Artnetweb at the MIT List Visual Arts Center in January of 1997. Peppermint's Conductor performances deal directly and brazenly with issues of mediation by incorporating live video/surveillance technology that requires viewers to observe in simultaneity the actual performance event and the real-time (live) approximation of that event. In Conductor performances Peppermint engages multiple technologies to deliver his own discourse of spoken language and techno-music that he terms "Technolectures." Through both high & low-tech devices including halogen work-lamps, laptop computers, and even a ukulele, Peppermint questions the effectiveness, potential and even the necessity of the "live" performer. Past performances have included varied performance-art "jam-sessions" including Peppermint conducting his techno-lectures from the confines of a pine-box for Conductors Number One and Nine and sealing himself off completely in an 14 by 14 room for "Conductor Number Zero."

"I like to consider the invention of the phonograph and its early alternate label of 'ghost-box.' The 'ghost-box' produced voices from people who did not exist... at least in physical presence. To reproduce the 'live' event is to be involved with the work of the 'dead', the very act of (media) entombment." - Cary Peppermint 2002

Cary Peppermint's work involves performance and new media technologies. He incorporates the real-time video surveillance, digital-photography and electronic music to permeate a multitude of 'networks' within and beyond the internet. Peppermint applies recombinant strategies to commercial sites and publications, such as Ebay.com, Evite.com, The New York Daily News, Artforum and Mp3.com by processes of simulating, mirroring and/or uploading them with artistic content that employs them as carriers of interactive compositions of chance, interruption or "restless culture." Peppermint's works comprise some of the first real-time performance art realized via the internet including "The Mashed Potato Supper" as part of Edinburgh's Fringe Film and Video Festival in 1995 and "Conductor Number One" included in PORT: Navigating Digital Culture in 1996. Peppermint lives in New York where he consistently disseminates his work through an independent website of information-art called "Restlessculture.net." (http://www.restlessculture.net/) Peppermint's work has been supported by cutting edge institutions such as Franklin Furnace. He has exhibited internationally in festivals and centers of contemporary art, such as Osnabrück's European Media Art Festival Walker Art Center's first major survey of internet art, "Beyond Interface" and The Whitney Museum of Art's "Artport." Peppermint's performances have taken place at The Kitchen, Postmaster's Gallery, ISEA and the Center for Contemporary Art in Glasgow.

(see directions at end of message)

La historia de los colores/The Story of Colors: A Bilingual Folktale from the Jungles of Chiapas Authors: Anne Bar Din Subcomandante Marcos Domitilia Dominguez March, 1999 Adapted and performed by Ricardo Dominguez

Among many other issues, Ricardo Dominguez' multi-media work explores the relationship between art, technology, and social engagement. He has been involved with numerous individual and collective initiatives including Critical Art Ensemble, Electronic Disturbance Theater, and The Thing.

Art, Story-Telling, and the Five Senses is an experimental arts workshop for bilingual children (English-Spanish) initiated and run through the efforts of the Asociación Tepeyac, its after-school program "Encontrando Nuestras Raíces," and the community of Santísimo Sacramento in Queens. Asociación Tepeyac is an organization run by and for the Hispanic community in New York. Please visit: http://www.tepeyac.org

Through various narrative techniques and artistic disciplines we are working toward the completion of a book, an audio piece, and an art video for a mixed community who wishes to share the dreams and labors of the Hispanic community in New York and elsewhere. As the students strengthen their own voice, they also learn to appreciate and use their complex heritage against today's favorite backdrop: New York City.

Our first exhibition includes two videos, a slide narrative, booklets, costumes, sculpture, drawing, and games, all produced and executed by the students themselves.
Instructors: Daisy Rosenblum, Polina Porras, Juventino Mosso, Vicencio Márquez, Peter Lasch.

10. Jacquelyn Schiffman, FF Alumn, at Figureworks, Jan 31-March 2, 2003

Jacquelyn Schiffman, FF Alumn, presents Sitting on Air
January 31 - March 2, 2003
Reception - Sunday Afternoon, February 2nd, 4-7 PM
Figureworks

(1 block south from Bedford Avenue "L" train, between Bedford Ave./ Driggs Ave.)

Friday, Saturday, Sunday 1-6 PM or by appointment

Figureworks is pleased to be hosting a striking and unusual new body of work by Jacquelyn Schiffman. This new series of figurative work is done predominantly in wax and acrylic on a semi-transparent, polyester, spun-web "canvas". Using paint and wax on this spunbound material, in an encaustic approach, Ms. Schiffman has produced stunning results. The figures take on an abstracted, dream-like quality, not only due to the artist's hand, but also by the magic of the material itself. Ms. Schiffman entitled this show Sitting on Air. She says "Sitting on air is tricky, you don't know if you're about to fly or to fall down." Her figurative imagery is based on real people, some famous, some familial, some models. These introspective figures carry a mystical quality and it is intriguingly difficult to determine if they are elated enough to take flight or perhaps just slump and drop from sight.

Regarding her materials, spunbound technology has been around since the mid-l960s for use in the automotive, construction and medical fields. As an art source, spunbounds are remarkable for their transparent, sensual and archival qualities. To further assist in appreciating this unique material, most of this work is mounted top and bottom on transparent, hollow acrylic rods. Hanging like scrolls allows light through the piece and in many cases, exposure to the back of this work is as intriguing as the face.

Ms. Schiffman received her BA from the University of Michigan and her MS from Southern Connecticut University. She has studied in Paris at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere and Academie de Notre Dame des Champs and in the NY at Hunter College, the New School, and the Art Students' League. She has received numerous awards for her work including an individual grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. She has also studied in Connecticut at the studio of Gerald Garston and the Studio of Madeline Sharrer. She is influenced by the poupees of Marta Kuhn Weber and Greer Lankton and the collages of Hannelore Baron.

12. Penny Arcade, FF Alumn, presents "A Whore's Life," Feb 2, 6 pm at Tribes.

On Sunday February 2nd at 6pm Penny Arcade, FF Alumn, will present "A Whore's Life" at Tribes. TRIBES 285 East 3rd St second floor between Ave C &D 212-674-8262 suggested donaton $10 .....

After touring the USA this fall with The Sex Workers Art Show, Penny Arcade was staggered to see that the two most unique voices on the tour were marginalized. The voices of Leslie Bull and Ariel Lightingchild. Both women, Leslie Bull ,40 years old, a poet and writer and Ariel Lightningchild, 19 years old, a film maker, offer a view into the rarely voiced world of street prostitution. As prostitution continues to lose its stigma among upper middle class college girls and as the term 'sex worker' is thrown around with abandon, the issues of race and class, particularly class become more apparent and more avoided.

Leslie will read from her work and we will show Ariel's short films "Deconstructing Crack Ho" (a memoir 7minutes) and Swallow 7 minutes.Please join us at Tribes for an extremely engaging, honest and exciting walk on the wild side and Penny will set the context with some excerpts from her new work in progress "A Whore like The Rest".

Ariel Lightningchild Is from the Cree and Ojibwa first nations, she is also Jewish and Roma (gypsy). She ws born on coast Salish land commonly known as Vancouver, B.C. Canada. She left home at 11 yers old and has been trying to sort out her life ever since. She has been off the streets and drugs since 1999 and has published 2 chapbook/zines of her short stories and poems, and directed/written/ produced 4 videos and one super 8 film. Through her art Ariel gives voice to her stories of childhood abuse and neglect, life on the streets and sexual exploitation. Ariel's work exposes and analyzes various forms of oppression and how they have effected her ancestors, her family, her friends , herself,and have contributed to different kinds of abuse she has experienced. She offers a strong voice on the subjects she approaches, and articulates her thoughts in an affective, raw ,disturbing,gritty and often humorous way. Ariel hopes that by sharing her experiences she may help others. She currently resides in Montréal, Québec were she is freezing her ass off and trying to graduate from high school.

Leslie Bull is a writer. A poet, novelist, and sometime photographer. Among other things, she writes about her experiences as a teen welfare mom, street hooker, white girl, junkie, prisoner family, middle-aged college student, and survivor. Raw and from the heart, she calls herself "a compulsive truth-teller" in her writing. Leslie recently performed in a nationwide tour with the Sex Worker's Art Show, and is the author of four chapbooks of poetry and creative nonfiction, including the first three chapters of her memoir, titled Jury Duty.

14. jihui Digital Salon presents Perry Hoberman, January 31, 7 PM @ Parsons

Parsons Center for New Design
55 West 13th Street, 9th Fl.
New York, NY 10011
Live Webcast @ http://agent.netart-init.org starts 7pm EST.

Perry Hoberman will be discussing his current exhibition at Postmasters Gallery. In this exhibition, Hoberman tackles one of our current dilemmas: in a world of ever-increasingly "powerful" media technologies, our own power to creatively make use these technologies is under constant threat on a variety of fronts. Restrictions and surveillance are being hard-coded into the hardware, software and networks we use daily in a process that seems determined to make us little more than fodder for an ever-more-profitable army of passive and fearful consumers.

Several works satirize the endless attempts to price and profit from what has become known as "intellectual property" - a term that emphasizes ownership above all. A series of prints is based on the ubiquitous dialog boxes that appear whenever we open, save, close, delete, or do anything at all with the files on our computers. Another series of prints consist of superimposed images of every spam email message that Hoberman received over a given period of time, in an attempt to visualize the increasing onslaught of unsolicited advertising and to transform an utterly debased form of communication into something beautiful. Several works deal with iconography of the All-Seeing Eye, recently repurposed as the symbol of John Poindexter's "Total Information Awareness System," thus shifting its meaning from a suggestion of divine omniscience to a more earthbound ideal of total surveillance.

Perry Hoberman is one of the pioneers of new media art, having addressed the form, content and social implications of media technology for over twenty years. During that time, he has exhibited internationally, with major shows throughout the USA and Europe. His work is currently on view in the "Future Cinema" exhibition at the ZKM Center for New Media in Karlsruhe. Hoberman has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards, and is both a 2002 Guggenheim Foundation Fellow and a 2002 Rockefeller Foundation Media Art Fellow.

16. Marina Abramovic, The House with the Ocean View, at NYU, Feb 4, 7 PM.

The Performance Studies Tuesday Night Forum
is proud to present:
Marina Abramovic
"The House With the Ocean View - Or - All About Performance"
Tuesday - February 4, 7:00 pm
721 Broadway, Room 636, NYC

Abramovic will discuss her recent "living installation" at Sean Kelly Gallery. During the 12 day performance, she lived and fasted in the gallery which was open to the public. "Ocean View also relates to Nightsea Crossing in that it is really about consciousness. Abramovic has long been interested in the way spiritual practitioners develop themselves through fasting, silence, and ritual. While the content of Nightsea Crossing was the artists' inner lives, she wanted to explore whether a piece could include the inner lives of the audience. Ocean View was an experiment: 'If I purify myself, can I change the energy in the space and the energy in the audience?'"
C.Carr's Hunger Artist: The 12 Days of Marina Abramovic

Some of the questions she plans to address in her presentation include:
"What is the performance?" "How do you perform?"
"How do you begin?" "How do you end?"
"What state of mind performers should be in?"
"What is the relationship between the performer and the public?"
"What is the function of the public?"
"How have performances changed from the 1970's until now?"
"What do I mean by body drama?"
"What are the bodies limits?" "Can we talk about the new body in performance?"
What questions might you have?
This event is free and open to the public.
