1. LYNN CAZABON, FF FUTURE OF THE PRESENT 2004 RECIPIENT, AT SCHROEDER ROMERO, BROOKLYN, NOW THROUGH JUNE 14

Lynn Cazabon
Discard
Through June 14, 2004
Hours: Friday - Monday, 12-6pm and by appointment.

Schroeder Romero is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by Lynn Cazabon, FF Future of the Present 2004 Recipient. Cazabon continues to use movie film as a source in her work, both conceptually and materially. The prints in the series Film Tombs are made from films that have been discarded or de-accessioned by public institutions, in this particular series from The Pratt Library in Baltimore. Cazabon's prints are digitally produced on a large scale with their source being the analog material of film. In these images, an entire film is presented like skeletal remains in a tomb or casket so that each print serves as a kind of memento-mori to film. The films are presented as "dead" to highlight the notion that, as a representational technology, film has been displaced by digital media and is sometimes seen as a decaying artifact in need of preservation or burial.

On view in the small gallery will be a projected digital video entitled Reel which takes the form and content of these prints into motion.

Lynn Cazabon lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland. She received an MFA in photography from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Her work is in several public collections including the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, The Mattress Factory Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, and the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha. Her first solo show with Schroeder Romero was entitled Story of M in 2002 which was also exhibited in 2003 at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center in Buffalo, New York.

SCHROEDER ROMERO is open Friday - Monday, 12 - 6pm and by appointment. The gallery is located at 173A North 3rd Street between Bedford and Metropolitan, in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. Please contact Lisa Schroeder or Sara Jo Romero for more information. Directions: L Train to Bedford Avenue. Walk south four blocks to North 3rd Street, turn left.

7. Norm Magnusson, FF Alumn, at Spike Gallery, opening June 9

Curated by Helianthe Bourdeaux-Maurin, "Happy art for a sad world" is an exhibition that invites all to partake in the wonders of the imagination, to recall the simpler times of childhood, to dream of worlds never before imagined, to stop and take notice of those beauties that surround us on a daily basis and escape into a place that will replenish and revive. Through August 7, 2004.

On June 9th, 2004 the SPIKE GALLERY will open a cutting-edge International Group Show of museum quality featuring 21 emerging artists entitled HAPPY ART FOR A SAD WORLD curated by Hélianthe Bourdeaux-Maurin.

As in all things, there exists within man the ability to do good and to do evil. Human beings are quite definitely the most amazingly wondrous and complicated creatures on this earth. We have the capacity for great joy and celebration, for inspiration and compassion. We also possess the greatest ability to harm, destroy, corrupt and defile. In these political, social and economic times when the "bottom line" seems to be all that matters, Spike Gallery offers a moment of reprise. HAPPY ART FOR A SAD WORLD is an exhibition that invites all to partake in the wonders of the imagination, to recall the simpler times of childhood, to dream of worlds never before imagined, to stop and take notice of those beauties that surround us on a daily basis and escape into a place that will replenish and revive. For most of the artists in this show it marks the first time their work will be exhibited in a New York Gallery. They come from around the world and bring a variety of mediums -- installation, painting, photography, video and sculpture --and ideas. HAPPY ART FOR A SAD WORLD is not about the humorous and funny, it is not about the ironic or the naïve: it is quite simply about a feeling -- a feeling that communicates the potential of all human endeavors.

On view is the work of Frida Baranek, Hildur Bjarnadóttir, Beth Campbell, Soyeon Cho, Wonjung Choi, Andrea Corson, Pamela Hadfield, Kyung Jeon, Norm Magnusson, FF Alumn, Didier Mencoboni, David McQueen, Andy Moses, Chris Natrop, Reuben Negrón, Charlotte Nicholson, Edgar Orlaineta, Julian Pozzi, Mary Schwab, Julian Stark, Christopher Adam Yockey, Cybèle Young.

The exhibition runs through August 7, 2004. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 11-6pm.
The gallery is located at 547 West 20th Street, NY, NY.

9. Scott C Durkin, FF Alumn, at PNC Bank Arts Center, NJ, May 28

Scott C Durkin, FF Alumn, began his four year "Law School Event" when he sat unprepared for the December 4, 1999 administration of the LSAT.

When we investigate ancient civilizations two areas of human achievement are prominent, civics and art. Contemporary perceptions of the legal and art professions reveal a very different and disparate regard for the two most important contributions to civilization. In an attempt to equate art and law in a practical present day application, Scott C Durkin enrolled in and successfully completed a four year accredited law school program as a documented performance event.

On Friday May 28, 2004 Durkin will conclude his performance with a "Commencement Event" to be held at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Homdel, New Jersey at 12 noon. All are welcome to attend.

Background for the Project
In September of 1961 in the city of Belgrade, President Tito of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia convened the first "Conference of Non-Aligned Heads of State," in part as a response to the growing threat of nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union. A communist who had also broken Yugoslavia's ties with the Soviet bloc, Tito brought together luminaries of what was then called the "Third World." Figures such as India's Jawaharlal Nehru, Ghana's Kwame Nkrumah and Egypt's Gamal Abdel Nasser worked with leaders from 25 nations to look for new alternatives in the struggle to create world peace and prosperity. Looking back to this seminal moment in world history, and in search of ways that would move human society beyond the limits of national identity, Slovenian artist ad curator Tadej Pogacar has invited United States artists Deidre Hoguet and Peter Walsh to join him in creating a new olympic torch relay to carry the flame for Equipo Terrestre (Team Earth) across the commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Called "Lampadedromia, Puerto Rico 2004" after the greek word for torch relay, the art project will take place in celebration of pr_04. tribute to the messenger. //2004 olympics, an arts festival sponsored by the Puerto Rican arts group M&M Proyectos. About pr_04. tribute to the messenger. //2004 olympics pr_04. tribute to the messenger. //2004 olympics is the third of a series of events organized every two years by M&M Proyectos. On this occasion, several international curators have been invited to propose and work on projects in the specific context of Puerto Rico. The event will take place from May 28 to May 30 in San Juan and from May 31 to June 6, 2004, in Rincón, a town of 15,000 local habitants with a significant floating population of temporary residents. The interest of the project is to work closely with the community, carrying out a sort of archaeology of the place and having the artists collaborate with local residents. This would be the third project that M&M Proyectos would undertake in Rincón, this time with the participation of international artists and curators, which will also expand the scope of interaction between the local community and a wider international context.
