6. Mona Hatoum, FF Alumn, at Hamburger Kunsthalle thru May 31, and elsewhere

Mona Hatoum - A major survey including
new work
26 March - 31 May 2004
Hamburger Kunsthalle
Stiftung offentlichen Rechts
Glockengiesserwall, 20095 Hamburg
Tel: +49 40 428 131 200
http://www.hamburger-kunsthalle.de

This is the largest survey exhibition of the work of Mona Hatoum, and her first one-person exhibition in Germany. In the United States and Great Britain, Hatoum has long been recognized as one of the most important artistic figures of her generation. Born in 1952 to Palestinian parents in Lebanon, Hatoum has lived and worked in London since 1975.

This experience of living 'elsewhere', outside her home country, has sensitized Hatoum to the themes of power and identity, which can be seen through her entire oeuvre. In her sculptures, video works and large-scale installations she repeatedly addresses the violence inherent in institutional power structures and, by contrast, the isolation and vulnerability of the individual. Her central point of reference is often the body, sometimes her own body that she employs in her early performance pieces and later video works. Since the beginning of the '90s her work moved increasingly towards large-scale installation works that aim to engage the viewer in conflicting emotions of desire and revulsion, fear and fascination. Hatoum has developed a language in which familiar, domestic everyday objects like chairs, beds, cots and kitchen utensils are transformed into foreign, threatening and dangerous objects.

Hatoum's works are analogous to human existence - vividly formulated but at the same time complex and mysterious. As she puts it: "You first experience an artwork physically. I like the work to operate on both sensual and intellectual levels. Meanings, connotations and associations come after the initial physical experience as your imagination, intellect, psyche are fired off by what you've seen."

This first comprehensive presentation of Hatoum's work in Germany is taking place in the Hamburger Kunsthalle. Around sixty works from American and European collections provide an overview of the artist's highly varied and imaginative oeuvre. A new site-specific work, conceived by Hatoum for the Hamburger Kunsthalle, is planned for the monumental Domed Hall.

Hatoum's work has been exhibited widely in Europe, the United States and Canada. In 1997 a survey of her work was organised by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and toured to The New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, MoMA, Oxford and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh (1998). Hatoum's exhibition 'The Entire World as a Foreign Land' was the inaugural exhibition for the launch of Tate Britain, London in 2000. Other solo exhibitions include Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris in 1994, Castello di Rivoli, Turin (1999), 'Domestic Disturbance', Site Santa Fe and Mass MoCA (2000-2001), and a survey of her work at the Centro de Arte de Salamanca and the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporanea, Spain (2002-03). Hatoum is currently artist in residence on the DAAD program in Berlin (Berliner Kunstlerprogramm, Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst). Mona Hatoum is the 2004 winner of the prestigious Sonning Prize awarded every two years by the University of Copenhagen.

The exhibition is a collaboration between Hamburger Kunsthalle and Kunstmuseum Bonn. It will be shown in Bonn from 17 June until August 29th, 2004 and in Stockholm, Magasin 3, from 9 September until 19 December 2004. A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.

8. Linda Sibio, FF Alumn, at Hi Desert Playhouse, CA, May 21 & 22

"Madness from the point of view of the mad is an altered state, a way of being, a way of perceiving the world. These perceptions are unique and surreal and do not fit comfortably into the main stream arts community."

One of twelve VSA international fellowship recipients, Linda Carmella Sibio presents her community project. This interdisciplinary project is entitled "The Prophet of Doom in the Banana Republic." It is collaboration between Sibio and the oddest, quirkiest people in the high desert of California who are called "The Cracked Eggs" (arts group Sibio founded in 2001).

Community sponsors for the project include VSA Arts (Washington, D.C.) international non-profit that provides opportunities in the arts for people with disabilities; Bezerk Productions which is a non-profit in the high desert dedicated to mainstreaming the art of mentally disabled people as well as providing art educational services to this population (headed up by Norman Frisch, Martha Wilson, Moira Adams, Derek Graves); Morongo Basin Counseling and Recovery Center is a private non-profit community based organization that provides quality outpatient services for emotional, behavioral or mental problems for adults and children.

"The Prophet of Dom in the Banana Republic" deals with the issue of what happens when there's a forced, military take-over of a country (in this case Eureka). It addresses the social network of the poor and the effects of the military take-over by The Prophet of Doom. It explores the demise of the Doom Republic and the spiritual uprising of The Dead Opera Singer who explores issues around death and immortality. All this is done through a wild and absurd deconstructed text, paintings and totem poles that roll around on stage and exquisitely horrific, beautiful and strange sounds created by Piano Bob (Bob Fenger). "The Cracked Eggs" deliver soul-searching performances that are guaranteed to pluck your brain and your head. Where there's a strange bird there's the possibility of transformation.

There will be two shows only on Friday, May 21 and Saturday May 22 at 8PM at the Hi-Desert Playhouse located at 61231 29 Palms Highway in Joshua Tree, Ca. (next to The Joshua Tree Inn). Tickets for the show are $12-$15 and can be bought at the playhouse (760-366-2090, Wed. - Sat. from 4PM-6PM), The Beatnik Café (everyday from 9AM-12midnight - 760-366-2090), and Joshua Tree Health Foods (everyday except Sunday 9AM-6PM). Advance tickets bought will help group make sets, get costumes and props and do publicity.

10. Ken Friedman, FF Alumn, at Centre of Attention, London, April 3, 6-9 pm

You are invited to: Ken Friedman '12 structures'
Sat 3 April, 6 to 9 pm: Fluxus concert conducted by the artist followed by opening reception.
Exhibition to 2 May 2004, Fridays to Sundays, 1 to 6 pm. Both at the Centre of Attention, 15 Cottons Gardens, London E2 8DN. Free entrance to both.

What's the score?
These works by Ken Friedman are designed as scores, which can be seen as proposal pieces or instructions for actions, performances, enactments or events.

What's Fluxus?
First, it is a laboratory for ideas and social change. The Fluxus moment developed in the 60s facilitated initially by Georges Maciunas in New York and grew to include artists such as Yoko Ono, Joseph Beuys, Ben Vautier, Milan Knizak, Nam June Paik, Ken Friedman...

What's a Fluxus concert?
The idea of the Score suggests musicality. Like a musical score, it represents an individual's mind and intention. Like a score, it can be realised by artists other than the original creator. And like a score, it is open to variation in realisation and interpretation. On April 3, Ken Friedman will conduct the performance of a number of his scores with Oreet Ashery, Mertxe Cano, Eleanor Cracknell, Deej Fabyc, James Hollands, Isabella Zuhal Parla, Yann Perreau, Tai Shani and others. These works refer to the concert and vaudeville tradition and to the very origins of performance art in European Dada.

Why the Centre of Attention?
The Centre has worked to realise this project with Ken Friedman. It underlines ideas that the Centre shares with him and Fluxus in a general way. These include ideas around intimacy, networks and the city; gesture; and the Fluxus tendency to escape the boundaries of the art world and shape a discourse that belongs to each of us. Our goal is to be a laboratory of research, not to follow the sterile professionalism encouraged by art institutions.

Anything else?
Ken Friedman is giving a talk with ArtHappens on Friday 2nd April, 7 to 8 pm (contact Penny Cooper direct on 0207 225 4822 or events@arthappens.org).

'12 structures', a Centre of Attention publication of the scores will be produced for this exhibition and available in a limited paper edition as well as unlimited free electronic edition.

More info here: http://www.thecentreofattention.org/exhibitions/fluxus.html

We look forward to seeing you,
Pierre

PS: The Centre of Attention is a non-commercial, non-funded London based gallery. Our current lease ends in September. We are looking for new no/low cost, temp/permanent premises for the 2004-05 season. Any suggestion, assistance or proposal is welcome and most appreciated.

12. Sheelah Murthy, FF Alumn, at Gene Siskel Film Center, Chicago, April 11, 7 pm

Hey everybody!
I've met these wonderfully smart and talented artists through the Asian American Artists Collective (here in Chicago). Some of these folks you might have already met through other connections like the Guild Complex or Mango Tribe. Anyways, I volunteered to direct the closing night live performance for the Asian American Film Festival. Lots of political satire, lyrical spoken word, beats, sithar, sax etc. Because the venue is a cinema the live performances are laced together with bits of video. e.g. don't miss the mockumentary: "MLOBS: My Loved Ones are Bush Supporters" (A Support Group). I'm sure you're all dying to learn more about the fascinating and rapidly growing Asian American Electorate. Well now here's your big chance!
Hope to see you there!
Sheelah Murthy

Asian American Showcase presents:

MARS, MARRIAGE, AND MASS DISTRACTION

It seems everybody's talking politics these days. Tired of being told what you believe from political pundits and public opinion polls? Who's being polled anyway? Nobody I know. Whether it be witty or angry, utopian or bemused, critical or celebratory, this performance takes all that palpable anxiety and turns it into the carnivalesque hallucination of the past three years. Come experience our take on the current state of affairs through a colorful interweaving of the spoken word, music, video, movement and dance talents of the Asian American community of Chicago.

14. Susana Cook, FF Alumn, in panel at NYU, April 3, 2:30 pm

Art for Change with the collaboration of the Diversity Studies Initiative of the Graduate School of Arts and Science of New York University presents: Dissecting Diversity: Art takes over the discussion

Conference Date: April 3rd, 2004
Conference Time: 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Conference Location: The Jurow Lecture Hall, Silver Center,
100 Washington Square East
New York University

"Dissecting Diversity" is a conference that will stimulate a new dialogue and exchange of ideas about diversity, provoking an examination of what it means today, beyond conventional words and definitions, and looking to art as a common ground. The conference intends to create a space where community organizations, art organizations, artists and scholars can meet and forge new social practices that promote social justice and civic participation.

PROGRAM
Morning
9:30 am Registration
10:00 am Welcoming
10:15 am ** ART TAKES OVER ** "Artists Dissecting Diversity" -- Art takes over the discussion through artistic presentations. Artists to be announced.
10:30 to 12:00 am Interrogating and Re-interpreting ŒDiversity¹

Last year, our first Art for Change discussion on diversity began with a remark by Robin Kelley: "diversity and multiculturalism are really problematic terms now." This comment was a reflection on our historical situation, that is, how during the culture wars of the 90s the terms, diversity and multiculturalism, became significantly static abstractions of a dominant and ossified discourse. Today, this established language of diversity maintains a complex relationship with the narratives that groups now use to affirm their cultural identities, differences, struggles and new social agendas.

This conference will take, as a general theme, how new expressions of self-consciously diverse groups, their artistic production, and their community actions express new identifications and how these expressions may create new points of contact and bridges to a common ground.

Moderator: TBA
Three speakers: TBA
12:00 to 1:00 am Lunch - **ART TAKES OVER**. Artist to be announced.
Afternoon
The Challenge
First Part
1:00 to 2:30 pm
Panel Discussion: "The Diversity Calculus"

The Diversity Calculus: Preserving Traditional Diversity - Discovering New Diversity.
Within every strong cultural statement there can be a critique that articulates the new. This conference will offer an opportunity to air a range of new articulations and cast them in terms that redefine how we can responsibly use art, and the new language it affords, to build bridges and build a world of fairness and justice.

Art often works out of sight, silently, individually, without social objective and only to explode on the scene redefining our circumstances while setting new social agendas. Art as hammer and butterfly net. What can we honestly expect and achieve?
Moderator: TBA
Three to four speakers: TBA
2:30 pm Break
Second Part
2:40 to 4: 30 pm
ART TAKES OVER Artist to be announced.
Panel Discussion: Diversity, growing caste-class poverty and immiseration. Diversity, growing caste-class poverty and immiseration. Groups that already are left out both politically and economically are confronting new forces that worsen their living conditions. These forces are both local and global.

Can we identify the levers, the needed counterweights and the partnerships for change in our communities? How can our talk about diversity enable new approaches and new programs to deal with inequality, power and privilege? What roles can art and performance play in expressing our current circumstances and our programs for change? How can art build bridges and new solidarities among diverse groups?
Moderator: TBA
Three to four speakers: TBA

4:30 to 5:30 pm
Panelist Assembly and Brainstorm: Panelist and Audience Interaction.
The panelists will discuss new directions for art, new responses to art, new art programs that distribute information, and new works of art that seek to counter the prevailing media definitions of who we are individually and socially. The panelists will also respond to a series of questions posed to them by the audience and moderator.

*Towards the end of the conference, an action plan survey and information request form will be distributed. Everyone will be invited to:

a. Recommend new plans of action on how artists and their works can promote our conference objectives.
b. Share new information on artists, their works and how these artists can play a role in creating our new definitions and programs for art for change.
5:30pm Closing remarks. Cocktail Reception will follow.

*Last Year Art for Change organized "The Complexities of Diversity," a round table discussion with the participation of various individuals and organizations throughout New York City moderated by Professor of Africana Studies Robin Kelley.

15. C. Carr, Karen Finley, John Fleck, Holly Hughes, Tim Miller, William Pope.L, Sapphire, FF Alumns, at NYU, April 15

NEA 4 Reunite at NYU Forum, April 15
Karen Finley, John Fleck, Holly Hughes and Tim Miller discuss their famous Supreme Court case and how it affected the arts in America

In 1990, the controversial work of a group of performance artists who received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts nearly resulted in the U.S. Government abolishing the agency. The artists - Karen Finley, John Fleck, Holly Hughes and Tim Miller - came to be known as the "NEA Four" and found themselves at the center of a national debate on what constitutes art and to what extent the state should support freedom of artistic expression. Six years after the June 26, 1998 Supreme Court decision, which ruled in favor of upholding the 1990 law requiring the NEA to consider standards of decency when giving out grants, the NEA 4 will gather for the first time to discuss whether art is more "decent" now, and how the ruling affects artists today.

This event is sponsored by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality (CSGS) and The Fales Library, and co-sponsored by the American Studies Program. It is free and open to the public. For more information, call 212-992-9545.

When: Thursday, April 15,. 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Where: Rosenthal Pavilion, Kimmel Center for Student Life
New York University
60 Washington Square South, Tenth Floor.

Who:
Karen Finley, performance artist; professor of art and public policy, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University
John Fleck, actor/performance artist
Holly Hughes, writer/performance artist
Tim Miller, dancer/performance artist; adjunct professor, UCLA
C. Carr, essayist and cultural historian
William Pope.L, visual and performance-theater artist; educator
Sapphire, poet/performance artist
Moderator: Marvin Taylor, Director, The Fales Library and Special Collections

Founded in fall 1999, the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at New York University conducts a broad interdisciplinary investigation of gender and sexuality as keys to understanding human experience. The center functions as a research institute and undergraduate academic program, crossing academic disciplines; bringing activists, artists, students, and scholars together; and examining the intersections of gender and sexuality with other social phenomena, such as race, religion, nation, ethnicity, and class.

The Fales Library is the primary special collections division at NYU and houses the Downtown New York Collection, which documents the downtown arts scene from 1974 to the present. The collection contains over 10,000 printed items and 4000 linear feet of archives. Included are the papers of David Wojnarowicz, Martin Wong, Judson Memorial Church, ReproHistory, Mabou Mines, Micelangelo Signorile, Jay Blotcher, and many, many others.
