2. Milenka Berengolc, Geoffrey Hendricks, Joan Jonas, Allan Kaprow, Suzanne Lacy, Linda Montano, Pauline Oliveros, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Hannah Wilke, FF Alumns, at Vlepo Gallery, Staten Island, Oct. 7-28, 2004

"Life As Art," an exhibition on performance art, will be presented at the Vlepo Gallery, 36 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, New York October 7th through October 28th,2004. The opening reception will take place October 9th, 2004 from 3-6 p.m. Curated by performance artist Milenka Berengolc, the exhibition is an eclectic mix of works by seminal artists of the seventies, such as Linda Montano, Geoffrey Hendricks, Hannah Wilke, Joan Jonas, Suzanne Lacy, Alex Grey, Pauline Oliveros, and Mierle Laderman Ukeles, as well as local and emerging artists. In these lifelike performances documented here is the recuperation of the ordinary. It is art in the context of everyday activity, whether the impetus is self exploration or a search for social change. The performances in "Life as Art" emphasize mindfulness in everyday living. "Life as Art" is dedicated to Allan Kaprow. Kaprow, renowned for his "happenings" of the fifties and sixties, wrote of the blurring of life and art and was to coin the term "lifelike art." There will be live performances at the opening reception. On Saturday, October 23,2004, Linda Montano will perform her recent work, "Conversations with My Father" for the closing. The Vlepo Gallery, ("I See" in Greek), located just across from the Staten Island Ferry and overlooking Manhattan, is currently celebrating its first anniversary.

This project is made possible in part by a Premier Grant from the Council on the Arts and Humanities for Staten Island (COAHSI) with public funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

3. Leon Golub, Chrissie Iles, Martha Rosler, Carolee Schneemann, Richard Serra, Lawrence Weiner, FF Alumns, at the Whitney Museum, NY, thru Oct 24

WAR! Protest in America, 1965-2004, on view at the Whitney from August 26 to October 24, 2004, presents films that address the theme of war, centered around an event at the heart of the outrage that galvanized Americans during the late 1960s: the war in Vietnam. In that period, a new generation, disillusioned with authority and motivated by the political and social turbulence of the times, explored issues of civil rights, black power, personal liberation, and political action. While playing a key role in the proceedings, filmmakers documented this remarkable moment in history.

Some of the filmmakers included in this series aligned themselves with collective political filmmaking centered around the New York and San Francisco Newsreels (later known as Third World Newsreel). In many cases, the anonymously produced films challenged the hierarchy of television news and "professional" documentary filmmaking, capturing testimony and interviews with controversial and sometimes shocking content. Filmmakers such as Emile de Antonio, Beryl Fox, Jean-Luc Godard, and D.A. Pennebaker used raw, controversial footage to create iconic independent documentaries whose antiwar statements of protest and civic unrest came to define the period. A section of this series is devoted to experimental films protesting the Vietnam War, including works by Paul Sharits, Stan Brakhage, and Carolee Schneemann.

The series also includes two films that address protest against the war in Iraq. In Not in Our Name, Brigitte Cornand interviews artists, including Richard Serra, Lawrence Weiner, Martha Rosler, and Leon Golub, on the eve of the Iraq war. In Julie Talen's Sixty Cameras Against the War, raw footage independently shot by sixty protesters during the New York march against the Iraq war on February 15, 2003 is woven by Talen into a kaleidoscopic portrait of a demonstration split apart by barricades.

The film series, curated by Whitney curator Chrissie Iles and artist Sam Durant, is presented by the Whitney Museum of American Art and The Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater, Los Angeles. For Whitney tickets, call 1-877-WHITNEY. Screenings at The Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater, Los Angeles, will take place October 30-31, 2004. For tickets there, call (213) 237-2810.

6. Karen Shaw, FF Alumn, at Susan Conde Gallery, NY, opening October 2, 6-8 pm

Susan Conde Gallery is pleased to present Unraveling, Works from the 70's to the present, by Karen Shaw, FF Alumn. The opening reception is on Saturday, October 2, from 6-8 pm and the exhibition continues through November 6, 2004. The exhibition features mixed media sculpture and collage based on the artist's early conceptual word and number games. With materials ranging from cash register receipts and lottery tickets to acupuncture needles and athletic T-shirts, Shaw translates numbers into a visual language of words and images where once recognizable patterns are rendered incomprehensible. Shaw's playful calculations call for the reawakening of perception.
In the early 70's Shaw gained recognition for her "Summations" and Summantics", a conceptual system in which letters from the alphabet are given a numerical value based on their position, such that A=1, B=2, and so on. According to this arrangement, words acquired a numerical sum and numbers equaled words. This concept allows for seemingly endless word/number combinations while in turn redefining our understanding of what these words and numbers signify.
Applying her system of Summantics to the numbers printed on athletic sports jerseys, Shaw found that she could subvert the perception of athletes and sportswear by equating irrational word combinations to them. In her current work, Shaw continues her use of the sportswear theme. Unraveling athletic shirts to where they become long, see-through gowns, the artist alters the notion of male clothing and it's established qualities by transforming it into feminine attire.

Shaw has exhibited widely in the US and Europe. Her work is in several permanent collections including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, The Seagram's Corporation, New York, and The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum, Connecticut. The artist lives and works in New York.

Susan Conde Gallery represents the work of Edward Berko, Sara Eichner, Carlos Ginzburg, Michelle Jaffé, Thomas Kovachevich, Jim Long, the Estate of Nachume Miller and Karen Shaw. The gallery is open Tuesday - Saturday from 11 am - 6 pm. For more information please visit us at www.susanconde.com or contact Susan Conde or Ryan Murphy.

8. Judith Sloan, FF Alumn, at New York University, Sept 22, 23, 7 pm

Franklin Furnace Alumn Judith Sloan performs with her collaborator Warren Lehrer at NYU. Free and open to the public.
Performance Celebrating NYC Immigrants Comes to NYU
Crossing the BLVD
Judith Sloan and Warren Lehrer
Crossing the BLVD: strangers, neighbors, aliens in a New America (Norton), the award-winning book by Warren Lehrer and Judith Sloan that chronicled stories, images and sounds of new immigrants and refugees in Queens, is transformed into a multi-media performance at New York University on Sept. 22 and Sept. 23 (7 p.m., Eisner and Lubin Auditorium, Kimmel Center). In the performance, Lehrer is the tour guide as Sloan transforms into dozens of Crossing the BLVD subjects who all came to the U.S. after the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, which mandated an end to discriminatory immigration policies that favored white Western Europeans. Their reflections and retellings are set against projected photographic portraits and panoramic landscapes, as well as recordings of Crossing the BLVD voices and music. Collectively, the stories, faces, and sounds form a prismatic, intimate portrait of a paradoxical and changing America. The event is hosted by NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where Sloan is an adjunct professor.

Wednesday, Sept. 22 and Thurs., Sept. 23, 7 p.m.
Discussion to Follow:
Thursday night moderated by Brian Lehrer of WNYC's the Brian Lehrer Show.

12. Steed Taylor, FF Alumn at Ambrosino Gallery, North Miami, opens Sept 17, 6-8 pm

Steed Taylor
In Country
September 17 - October 24, 2004
Opening Reception September 17th 6:00 - 9:00pm

Ambrosino Gallery is pleased to present a show of new works by New York-based artist Steed Taylor. In this second solo show with us, Taylor uses photographs, drawings, light boxes and multilayered prints to develop a visual requiem for his childhood hometown. The son of a decorated combat soldier, Taylor's youth was spent in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and in neighboring Fayetteville, a sleepy southern town aligned with the base for financial survival. Fort Bragg is also home to the notorious Airborne and Special Forces Units currently making headlines for excessive force in Iraq.

As an army brat growing up in the shadow of military might, Taylor's focus on this unique environment is rife with brazen propaganda, military hardware, maps, trailer homes, antique postcards and personal landmarks. An emphasis on bright, primary colors reflects his childhood view of the American War Machine at rest; yet, this bleak landscape reflects the slippery promise of military dominance familiar from the evening news.

This show continues Taylor's exploration into the dynamics of loss and emotional longing. In Country is military terminology for being on assignment inside a combat zone.

The show will encompass the gallery as well as the project room. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 11:00am - 6:00pm, or by appointment. For images or further information contact:

16. Tiffany Ludwig, FF Alumn, at Jersey City Museum, opens Sept 30, 6-8 pm

A Trappings exhibition by Two Girls Working: Tiffany Ludwig and Renee Piechocki opens at the Jersey City Museum.

Women of diverse backgrounds from Jersey City, NJ gathered throughout August for informal interview sessions that asked a single question regarding power and personal identity: "what do you wear that makes you feel powerful?" This question was asked by Two Girls Working, the collaborative team of artists Tiffany Ludwig, FF Alumn, and Renee Piechocki as part of their ongoing, national project Trappings. A related exhibition of audio, print, and video Trappings: Stories of Women, Power, and Clothing, will be presented at the Jersey City Museum from September 30, 2004 - January 9, 2005. Opening reception September 30, 2004, 6-8 pm.

The artists received funding from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation's Artists and Communities grant to be in residence at the Jersey City Museum and conduct a series of six interview sessions in the Jersey City Community. The exhibition features three print and audio works, and three video works which present the women the artists interviewed during their residency. The audio works are experienced by calling into the museum's phone system. 201-413-0303 ext. 130

Trappings is a national, multi-media artwork that explores the complicated landscape of power and its relationship to personal identity. The project has initiated a range of dialogues: simple descriptions of an outfit's comfort and practicality as a tool for power, complex analysis of an individual's movement through class and social strata, the use of sex as strategy in business and social settings, and the use of clothing as a way to connect with cultural or personal history as power sources.

The print and audio works can also be experienced on the artists' website, www.twogirlsworking.com in the 'current exhibitions' section. The website also contains an archive of 180 women who have participated in the project.

Two Girls Working position themselves as assets to civic action and dialogue. Dismayed by the lack of dialogue about contemporary feminism among their peers, Two Girls Working launched Trappings in June 2001. The artists have interviewed 260 women at 35 interview sessions in 10 states. A wide range of women have come to the Trappings interview sessions, from cowgirls and community volunteers to fashion-industry executives, artists, and elected officials. Trappings sessions have been hosted by groups including: a quilting-circle, an after-school group for at-risk teenage women, a drag-king performance team, the board and staff of a YWCA, and a university mentor program.
