1. Anahi Caceres, FF Alumn, new media project now online

"Woman: Memory of Repression in Argentina"
New Media project curated by Raquel Partnoy and Agricola de Cologne
For [R][R][F]2004---XP
[Remembering-Repressing-Forgetting]
global networking project
www.newmediafest.org/rrf2004

"Woman: Memory of Repression in Argentina" is an Internet based multi-media project environment realized in the framework of RRF Channel of [R][R][F]2004---XP---direct acces also via www.newmediafest.org/rrf2004/argentina1.htm
The project is referring to the darkest period of Argentine history when during the dictatorships countless husbands and sons disappeared, and these women, better known as "Mothers of Plaza de Mayo" took initiative and started their demonstrations against the military regime. The project spotlights Past, Present and Future of these traumatic experiences, but also the courage and power of the Argentine mothers as an appeal that such inhuman circumstances must not happen again, not in Argentina and not elsewhere in the world.

"ArteUna-RRF" by Anahi Caceres ArteUna-RRF is Anahis contribution to "Women: Memory of Repression in Argentina" and simultaneously an extension of this project through new networking features connected to the "Mothers of Plaza de Mayo" and related actions. In this way, it represents a most contemporary component. Another aspect is how people deal, in general, but young people in particular with this still frightning Past of Argentina. ArteUna is an Internet portal dealing with art and culture created by Anahi Caceres. A small video lecture by Anahi Caceres completes this impressive ongoing project.
These Argentine participants form currently this networking extension directed by Anahi Caceres.

2. Betty Beaumont, FF Alumn, at Natural World Museum, SF, thru October 31

Betty Beaumont's images to be presented by The Natural World Museum in the San Francisco exhibition, Anima Mundi, this October.

The Natural World Museum
Anima Mundi~ "SOUL OF THE WORLD"
Herbst International Exhibition Hall
The Presidio of San Francisco, CA
October 1st - 31st, 2004

Beaumont's images will be featured at The Natural World Museum, cultivator of environmental awareness and provider of new perspectives, which stimulate social engagement in conservation in its Anima Mundi exhibition. Given the importance of Beaumont's contributions to the ecological art movement, the green museum has created a multi-media installation featuring some of Beaumont's images and the images of other significant environmentally aware artists.

The Anima Mundi exhibition seeks to become a work of art in itself. The showcase has been newly designed to achieve a space of contemplative sanctuary. The art featured in Anima Mundi is meant to serve as a catalyst for interactive programs including workshops, lectures, a major symposium, film series, and cultural performances.

Beaumont's works whose images are featured include:

Cable Piece, made using the sort of steel cable used for the Brooklyn Bridge - the excess of our military industrial society - it is an iron ring formed of 4,000 feet of wire rope. The work is slowly burying itself into the ground of Macomb, Illinois. Cable Piece acknowledges the passing of an industrial age while contributing to an ecological era. Teddy Bear Island rejects the notion of dam building by locating Teddy Bear Island and its ecology lost by flooding. In an effort to "re-connect" this lost site one thousand feet of loose cable, a human-made umbilical cord, located in a memory-trace on the surface of the shifting water. Ocean Landmark is a seminal interdisciplinary work that successfully integrates industry with nature and first signaled the shift from the then minimalists ethos of earthworks/land art and embraced the principles of ecological restoration and the ecological aesthetic in contemporary art practice. Ocean Landmark transformed 500 tons of a stabilized industrial waste product into an underwater sculpture that has developed into a thriving reef environment that is fished and feeds people.

Each of these works present issues and ideas that challenge us to question norms; to re-examine our own beliefs, actions or inactions, tolerance of misinformation, and potential to effect change. Beaumont, like the Natural World Museum, has a broad definition of environment. Environment is all-encompassing - personal, political, social, spiritual, physical, cultural and economic."

Dear People near and far--
It's official! I will be audio-processing U.S. Election results as they come in on the radio, LIVE in New York City at HERE Arts Center, starting at 9:30pm, November 2, Election Night 2004. For us U.S. voters, it may be a way to stay sane while still remaining fairly up-to-the-minute.

Since this will be taking place at HERE's cafe, you are encouraged to drink, eat and mix with fellow humans while hearing strange juxtapositions, quirky grooves and funny voices made out of real live radio. And dig the world debut of The Musical Wheel--my giant control knob made from an old steering wheel. I will be drumming on shoes too, as usual, making those percussive radio bits dance. For those of you out of NYC, please consider this tidbit something I wanted to share. And indeed, I've always wanted to get breaking news into my performances. This time I know it will happen.

Show time 9.30pm until....? (As if we'll know anything by Nov. 3rd.)

6. Nicolás Dumit Estevez, FF Alumn, in Jamaica, Queens, http://www.jcal.org

Dear All:

I'm presenting these two projects as part of "Jamaica Flux: Workspaces & Windows." For more information about this exhibition please visit http://www.jcal.org
Regards,
Nicolás

"Jamaican"
Food Sampling in Queens
Menu for Jamaica Flux Opening
I create an ongoing spread the opening afternoon of "Jamaica Flux" that consists of dishes served by establishments located along Jamaica Avenue. I travel by bicycle, seeking out the flavor of this commercial artery, and transport goods from restaurants, eateries, and bakeries to the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning. Dishes arrive one at time throughout the event.

"Help Offered"
Site-specific interventions

For this piece I offer my services free of charge to small-scale independent businesses in Jamaica, Queens to work in close proximity with their owners and employees, performing a variety of tasks that meet the needs of the establishments while bringing purely utilitarian actions such as waiting tables, washing dishes, waxing cars, or selling goods, to the realm of performance. Work is purposely devoid of all capital production and is instead shaped into a poetic exercise. In return, labor reassembles art into a utilitarian practice that questions commodification.

10. Ex.Pgirl, FF Alumn, at HERE Arts Center, NY, Nov 4-14

Satirical Riot Grrrls Hang - 10 In New Dance Theatre Extravaganza!
Ex.Pgirl's
Waving Hello
Surf's Up Beginning November 4th

September 23rd, 2004 (New York, NY) - HERE Arts Center is proud to present the light-hearted dance theatre group Ex.Pgirl's multi-disciplinary theatrical experience, Waving Hello at HERE (145 6th Avenue at Spring Street, Main Stage). Performances run November 4th-7th, Thursday-Sunday and November 10th-14th, Wednesday-Sunday, at 8:30 PM. Tickets are $20 ($45 advance tix for the benefit performance on November 4th) and can be purchased by calling 212.868.4444. For more information, please go to www.here.org. This production is a part of HERE's 2004-05 season featuring six premiere productions developed by their resident artists, four festivals, three visual art exhibitions and the anticipated purchase of their space.

Waving Hello is a highly physical dance theatre piece full of whimsical dances, songs, language games, scenes, and video. Reveling in iconic pop American images of surf culture while riding the tough waves of New York's urban landscape Ex.Pgirl creates a humorous, entertaining, and touching look into how four international women assert their place in America. Ex.Pgirl seeks to subvert the idealized American experience and create new ideas of nationalism. Each scene offers one interpretation of America, then sweeps it away with a contrasting perspective. In a magical world where a simple plastic box is transformed into a surfboard, a bathtub, and an instrument of torture, Waving Hello is a feast of visual creativity where the simplest of objects become imbued with resonant meaning.

"Waving Hello explores the isolation and freedom found in joining American culture", says Ex.Pgirl Suzi Takahashi. "The image of a Californian surfer creates the thematic through-line of the piece; lending itself to our physical comedy strengths where much of the humor is mined."

The international cast hailing from 4 different countries are Suzi Takahashi (an Amerasian actor/director who performed in Richard Foreman's "King Rufus Cowboy Rules the Universe" at the Ontological/Hysteric Theater and four seasons at the Williamstown Theater Festival), Bertie Ferdman (a permanent resident of France, but born in Puerto Rico to parents of Argentinean descent. Bertie studied at the Jacques Lecoq School of Theatre in Paris), Kiyoko Kashiwagi (the dancer of the group born in Japan, where between 1981 and 1989, she danced for Yukako Maeda Ballet Company. In 1990, she started working with modern dancers of Beijing National Dance Company as a dancer and a choreographer. She has also worked with Yoshiko Chuma and the School of Hard Knocks), and Paula Salomon (from Buenos Aires, Argentina, she has studied juggling, trapeze, and clown with the Videla Brothers as well as contemporary dance with De La Guarda's own Maira Bonard).

The artistic team includes Shuichiro Nakamura (musician - born in Nagoya, Japan), Julien Jourdes (video artist born in Toulouse, France who has exhibited at ICP and HogarCollection), and Dahlia Fischbein (video artist - born in Buenos Aires, Argentina) and LABULO (from Montpellier, France by drummer Jerome Hoffmann and jazz guitarist Julien Valette).

Ex.Pgirl was founded in 2002 by Bertie Ferdman, Kiyoko Kashiwagi, Paula Salomon and Suzi Takahashi. Hailing from four different countries (France, Japan, Argentina, and USA), and four different artistic disciplines (Theatre, Dance, Mime and Circus), Ex.Pgirl was created to compose dance/theatre work that stylistically reflected the diversity of experience of its members. They are now in their second year of residency with the HERE Artist Residency Program for hybrid performance. Ex.Pgirl collaborates with an international team of composers, musicians and video artists.

Since opening in 1993, the OBIE-award winning HERE Arts Center has housed New York's most daring and unique theatre, visual art, puppetry, music and dance in its three theatres, two art galleries and café. Previous works originally produced by HERE include Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues, Basil Twist's Symphonie Fantastique, Camryn Manheim's Wake Up! I'm Fat, and original musical and dance works created and directed by Executive Director Kristin Marting. In 2003, HERE launched its Secure HERE's Future campaign to purchase its space and secure a permanent position as one of the city's preeminent presenters of multidisciplinary art.

HERE Arts Center supports the work of artists at all stages in their careers through full productions, artist residency programs, festivals and subsidized performance and rehearsal space. All work at HERE is curated based on the strength and uniqueness of the artist's vision. Waving Hello is being presented through HERE's Artist Residency Program (HARP), which provides development, commissions and full production support.

Waving Hello is made possible, in part, by the Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art, supported by Jerome Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts. Additional support was also provided by the Bubble Lounge, L magazine and Neighborhoodies.

On November 4, the Bubble Lounge and L magazine will host the Ex.Pgirl Post-Election Benefit Bash at the fabulous downtown champagne bar, the Bubble Lounge with cool music and visuals from 10pm to 2am. Open bar, 10pm-11:30pm. Price includes single ticket to any performance of Waving Hello and party: advance $45; at door, $50. Proceeds benefit Ex.Pgirl.

HERE Arts Center is located at 145 Sixth Avenue (one block below Spring Street) in SOHO. Tickets for Waving Hello are $20. Purchases can be made online at www.here.org, by calling SmartTix at (212) 868-4444 or by visiting the HERE Box Office from 4 p.m. until curtain.

14. Marshall Reese, FF Alumn, at NYPL Donnell Center, Oct 28, 6 pm

Artists look at 50 years of Presidential campaign spots
at the Donnell Library Center Auditorium
The New York Public Library
Thursday, October 28th at 6:00 pm

Muntadas and Marshall Reese will present their latest edition of Political Advertisement VI 1952-2004. This one-hour, 15 minute videotape spans 50 years of Presidential campaign spots. This is the sixth version in an ongoing twenty-year project, which Muntadas and Reese have revised, expanded, and updated with every major election.

This fascinating anthology, includes advertisements from the 2004 presidential campaign. It documents the selling of the American presidency. As Muntadas and Reese trace the development of the TV "spot" what emerges is the political strategy and manipulative marketing technique of the American televisual campaign process.
Political Advertisement includes many rare spots, some never before seen, edited without commentary. An endless stream of candidates, from Dwight Eisenhower to John Kerry, is paraded and sold like commercial products.

Mark Crispin Miller, professor of media studies, NYU and author of the recent book Cruel and Unusual: Bush/Cheney's New World Order will introduce the latest version of Muntadas/Reese's work in New York.

This screening is in conjunction with a series of presentations taking place in San Francisco, Chicago, Toronto, Amsterdam and Bremen just prior to the U.S. election.

Free Admission. Donnell Library Center Auditorium, 20 West 53rd Street, New York, NY 10019. For more information call 212-621-0609.
