Dears,

New Year. New President? Mandatory! I see how the 41% of the electorate that is Evangelical, (i.e., the "Christian Right" which is neither, as a famous bumper sticker had it), aren't sending their money to Falwell, Dobson, etc., anymore, SINCE THEY BELIEVE THAT GOD PUT GW BUSH IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND SO THEY'VE WON!!! Does this mean we're winning or losing? Yo! This Bulloney was settled 200 years ago. CHURCH is your business. STATE is all of ours. They are not in the same family. I'll be working up the slapstick side of this tragic American trend in two venues a

7. Marianne Weems, FF Alumn, at LMCC, Jan 20, 7-9 pm

BANGALORE-LONDON-NEW YORK
REINTERPRETING SIGNS AND STORIES
Conversation with British artist Keith Khan, theater director Marianne Weems and anthropologist Arjun Appadurai

Don't miss this free panel discussion at LMCC!
One Wall Street Court, 142 Pearl Street, 2nd Floor
Date: Tuesday, January 20, 2004; 7-9 pm

British artist Keith Khan or motiroti, theater director Marianne Weems of The Builders Association, and anthropologist Arjun Appadurai, discuss the politics and aesthetics of producing large-scale cross-cultural performances and the role of various media in creating these works.

Starting with a discussion of the Builders Association's widely acclaimed new performance work Alladeen, Weems, Khan and Appadurai explore larger questions that arise when many cultures collide, both in virtual and material reality. As Appadurai has remarked: "...in a world of migration and mass mediation, everybody is living in a world of image flows, such that it's not simply and straightforwardly possible to separate their everyday life from this other set of spaces that they engage with through the media, either as receivers, or as workers in call centers, or on interactive websites, etc. The work of the imagination allows people to inhabit either multiple localities or a kind of single and complex sense of locality, in which many different empirical spaces co-exist."

Producing Alladeen involved the collaboration of artists, cultural organizations, arts councils, and governments from New York, Bangalore and London, and takes as its theme the political and social dimensions of the imagination. Set primarily in the call centers of Bangalore, a group of Indian tech workers trained to mimic American accents and cultural knowledge must negotiate their "real" lives in India and their virtual telecommunications lives as Americans.

The New York City-based Builders Association is known for theater pieces such as Jet Lag (1998-99) that incorporate new media into live performance. London-based motiroti produces theater, installations and public events that investigate how forms of expression circulate among cultures. Together they recently presented Alladeen at the Brooklyn Academy of Music December 2-6, 2003.

An RSVP is encouraged to attend this event. Reservations will be taken online at www.lmcc.net/rsvp or by e-mailing rsvp@lmcc.net no later than January 12th. Please indicate for which program you are making a reservation.

8. George Ferrandi, FF Alumn, at DUMBO Jan 17; launches new website, and more.

Hello Friends and Friends of Friends-

I hope this year brings you many realized wishes. And I hope you don't mind this group e-mail; please let me know if you'd like to be removed from this list. (Just enter "end it all" as your subject.)

I am writing to tell you about 3 upcoming events where I will be presenting work:

number one: less than one week from today - this coming saturday:

Super Silver Monkey is making his Official New York Premiere at the DUMBO Arts Center in what promises to be a wonderfully eclectic show called "HOME." Seventeen artists will each be presenting works which address one of the ways we define for ourselves this idea of "home" - as a structural dwelling, a physical body, or a set of relationships. To this end, I am honored to present an installation mapping the domestic life of Super Silver Monkey and his enigmatic sidekick / potential assassin, Chavish.

Bruce Brown, the exhibit's curator, has selected a sparkling group of artists for this show, including David McQueen, Danica Phelps and Celeste Roberge. I feel lucky.

Please accept my invitation to the show and to the reception if you are in town on Saturday the 17th.

"home"
january 17 - march 14, 2004
opening reception:
saturday, January 17, 6-9 pm

number two: look for a valentine's day launch of the website supersilvermonkey.com - featuring regularly posted drawings, writings and parade planning information.

number three: down the road a bit
As part of Columbia University's visiting artist lecture series, I will be presenting a performance entitled "a tracing in lighter colors" described by the folks at Columbia as "a darkly whimsical and visually lush performance/lecture which analyzes and annotates a bizarre story from her family history." Some of you may have seen this piece at Chashama last year. If not, you should probably be told that the performance involves a funereal photograph, cartoon rabbits and a toy saxaphone.

Solo Theater
Course Description
13 sessions, Mon., 8:00 - 9:45pm
Alice Eve Cohen
Limited to 15. Solo theatre, with ancient roots in traditional storytellers, shamans, jesters, and ritual clowns, is experiencing a renaissance, taking it from downtown clubs to Broadway. This highly personal genre encompasses storytelling, multi-character comic monologues, mixed-media performance art, etc. In this course, each student works on the script of a solo one-act or a collection of short solo pieces, culminating in an invitational performance of student work. Equal attention is given to crafts of writing and performing, and in-class writing and improvisation exercises help students to find their own voices. Basic elements of drama and storytelling are taught, but students may work in non-traditional narrative styles. Participants are encouraged to form partnerships to direct one another's work. Students will read performance texts by solo artists including Anna Deavere Smith and John Leguizamo, and there will be discussion of performance venues and opportunities in New York City. (3 credits)

Hi,
I just wanted to tell you about a show I participating as an artist and curating as an extension of the Art Against War Show. I heard about a group of people in India who were interested in the art against war show. I emailed them and they seemed not quite sure what they wanted. Later they gave me an definitive yes. It turns out this is the group running the WSF Forum (www.wsfindia.org )

I am involved with choosing and sending work connected with my "Art Against War" Poster Show. The event is called the World Social Forum and it will take place in Bombay India (http://www.wsfindia.org/)

This is a huge event of independent socialists- anti imperialists, anti- capitalists worldwide, from Jan 16- 21. It has 75,000 registered delegates, expecting 300,000 visitors. The works will be sent and printed digitally. Printed, they will be 2 meters (just under 7 feet) high and up to 8 meters long.( 27 feet) all the work is being sent digitally and then printed from digital files.

Gen.R.8
Curated by Lea Rekow
February 6 - March 20, 2004
Reception Friday, February 6, 7-9PM

Gigantic ArtSpace is proud to present Gen.r.8, a group exhibition exploring generative processes in artistic production. Duplication, replication, and simulacrum are explored through print, video, film, music, painting, robotics, cloning, and sound composition machines. Gen.R.8 is a peek through the lens of continual, conceptual fusion. The "DNA" of this work is modified, distorted, and in some cases, rendered completely irrelevant. An exhibition catalogue will be available.

LEMUR: A group of artists and technologists present a "band" of robotic musical instruments that play themselves, driven by generative software and algorithmically generated improvisation.

LEE RANALDO: musician and visual artist, is an original member of the group Sonic Youth. Lee has written the composition for the Lemur instrument, "guitarbot", and presents Madonna Generation, a print project.

ANDREA POLLI: presents the installation and digital print series The Fly's Eye, tracking live movement with light analysis to create
deconstruction of the video image.

NATALIE JEREMIJENKO: presents monitored clones of her OneTrees project; tree(s) micro-propagated in culture. A pack of feral data tracker dogs:
Sniffers will also be roaming the gallery. Sniffer is a store-bought toy robotic dog, modified to hunt for environmental toxins.

BILL MORRISON: Decasia's decomposing film stock creates tension between the stained, eroded, unstable surface and the fragile nature of that which was once photographically represented.

DJ OLIVE: Referential components of sound samples exemplify the inherent haziness existing between the boundaries of "biting" and remixing.

KEN MONTGOMERY: Lamination Ritual is a participatory activity and listening experience which stimulates the mind and body in-the-moment, producing an original, tangible, transformed object which will last... almost forever.

LAURA KURGAN: Commissioned and manipulated satellite images examine the interfaces between electronic media, and information technologies.

STEVE REICH: Speech recordings generate the musical material in Early Works.

CAROL WARNER: Commercially produced images are subjected to both additive and subtractive processes to scramble familiar visual information.

DAVID LEE MYERS: Specialized circuitry and electronic systems produce "Feedback Music". Images are then produced from oscilloscope traces of the Feedback sounds.

IBRAHIM QURAISHI: Anamorphose is an ambient narrative of multiplication, duplication and digital manipulation.

GREG DEOCAMPO: Remixes a synthesis of a mathematical model of the Big Bang hum a solar flare from space probe Cassini.

LEA REKOW is curator and founding director of Gigantic ArtSpace.
