Art & Ecology Since 'Silent Spring'
curated by Nick Debs

November 4, 2005  - January 13, 2006
opening reception:Friday, Nov 4, 6-8pm

Joy Episalla - Joy Garnett - Tom Hawkins - Dominic McGill - John McLachlin - Jason Middlebrook - Frank Moore - Catherine Murphy - Bruce Nauman - Gary Ponzo - Amy Jean Porter - Alexis Rockman - David Wojnarowicz - Carrie Yamaoka
 
from the press release :
If Rachel Carson were alive today, she would probably be pleased about the heightened public awareness of the environment and some of the protective legislation passed since she wrote Silent Spring.  She would likely be much less satisfied with the ongoing battle between those who wish to preserve our natural environment and those whose efforts continue to contribute to its deterioration and destruction.

And just as Carson brought an investigative scientific eye to the problems of pesticides that she described in her groundbreaking book, an exhibition opening November 4 at the New York Academy of Sciences likewise casts a probing artistic look at some of the most critical environmental issues facing the world today.  The exhibition, The Obligation to Endure: Art & Ecology Since Silent Spring, reflects one of Carson's favorite maxims by the French biologist Jean Rostand : "The obligation to endure gives us the right to know."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Blood and Guts in Progress Monday, November 14 at 8 PM
Ocularis is pleased to present a single channel preview of Laura Parnes'

current work-in-progress, BLOOD AND GUTS IN HIGH SCHOOL, to be shown with her earlier THE REAL ART WORLD.

BLOOD AND GUTS IN HIGH SCHOOL are a series of videos (in progress) that re-imagine the Kathy Acker book of the same title. The book was written from 1978-1982 during the rise of Reagan republicanism and the emergence of punk rock. Each video presents a typical scene in the life of Janie bracketed by US news events from the time period in which the book was written. These events undulate through the characters daily experience, informing her adolescent, nihilistic worldview and her desire for rebellion. As the viewer looks back at these pivotal historical events (Jonestown Massacre, Moral Majority, Three Mile Island, the Iranian Hostage Crisis, etc.) connections are drawn in relation to our current political situation.

The REAL ART WORLD EPISODES are a humorous exploration of the power dynamics of the studio visit. Before a work of art is chosen for exhibition, gallerists or curators visit the artist's studio to see the work in person.

Like a confidence game or a first date, the artist must convince the visitor of the value of their work. Wrought with miscommunication, ego clashes, and raunchy and absurd dialogue, this series of videos draws attention to the subjective nature of cultural hierarchies.

Ticket Price - $6

6. Alan Calpe, at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, November 11 2005 7pm

Alan Calpe, who received a grant as part of The Cloud Seeding Circus of the Performative Objective from FF in 2000-01, presents work in “Voiceovers and Guest Starts” at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, November 11 2005
7pm

“Voiceovers and Guest Stars” looks at how the voice-over and the guest-appearance disrupt continuity and shape meaning In acting and film, a “voice over” automatically questions: 1) Who is talking? 2) What is the story with this talking? and 3) Who is this character? Likewise, the guest star, or unexpected celebrity appearance also interferes with what might seem to be a normal sequencing of events. In tandem with these notions and concepts, LACE has organized an event that will unpack these disruptions, with humor, insight and most likely some unease, from Alan Calpe’s and Lucas Michael’s exploration of drag icons (Linda Ronstadt and Liza Minelli), to Terry Chatkupt’s documentary of  his Thai parents relocation to a small town in Missouri, and then on to Michael’s Wilson’s insertion of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh into Star War’s Death Star, via video game manipulation.

The program is as follows:
Lucas Michael : LM², 2002
Jeannie Simms :  1974 in California, 2005
Martin Kersels: Attempt To Raise The Temperature Of A Container Of Water By Yelling At It, 1996
Sterling Ruby :  Landscape Annihilates Consciousness, 2004
Michael Wilson : INVICTUS, 2005
Terry Chatkupt : Home Grown Folks, 2001

Monday November 7, 2005 at 4:30p Amherst College, Pruyne Audiotirum "Performing the City" Lecture

Julia Mandle will speak and lead a discussion on how performance art can lead us toward understanding cities and our relationship to the environment, built and otherwise. In an illustrated presentation, she will discuss her company's intellectual and performative philosophy and explain some of her creations, including the well-known KALCH, which drew a street-side audience of 5,000 when it was performed in Lower Manhattan. Her visit is part of the "President's Initiative on the Urban Imagination", and is integral to the college's continuing effort to bring an urban-studies concentration to the curriculum.

Thursday November 10, 2005 from 2:00-4:00pm, WPS1, Radio Network of PS1. "Odd Lots Exhibition"

Artists Julia Mandle, Mierle Ukeles, and Jane South will discuss the recent exhibition at White Columns and Queens Museum with the curators and Cabinet magazine editors Jeffrey Kastner, Sina Najaf, Frances Richard plus Queens Museum Executive Director Tom Finkelpearl and PS1 Deputy Director Brett Littman.

Friday November 11, 2005 from 1:00-2:00pm. Parsons School of Design, "Apparel and Identity in the City"

Panelists Julia Mandle, Maggie Norris, and moderator Gwynne Keathly will discuss the interpretation of fashion typologies and how they affect the urban environment of New York, defining and addressing unique identities or
subcultures within the city.  The purpose of the panel discussion is to explore the perspective of a cross section of careers and professionals in the art and design community whose work has touched upon the subject of fashion and the concept of identity within the city.

10. Sebastiaan Schlicher at Museum MAN Liverpool, November 12 – November 25

Museum MAN Liverpool presents: The end is Far - new works on paper by Sebastiaan Schlicher. "Sebastiaan Schlicher has a dark imagination. So weird and absorbing are the recesses of his mind that he decided to create a cult in his own name. Sebastiaan makes evil drawings that look like the scratchy output of an eight year-old boy with the knowing brilliance of an adult. Full of dense colour and brimming in character, he draws strange doctors, heavy metallers, green-faced monsters, and warped versions of characters in Manga films. They fuse the San Fran handmade aesthetic of Chris Johanson with a touch of Hundertwasser's colour and insanity. Using the simplicity of felt tips and pens, his work is violent but often funny. Cue slogans like 'Work harder - Kill for Satan'. A cult worth joining." 

 -Francesca Gavin, Marmalade Magazine, August '05

Opening party: Saturday November 12th, doors open at 7pm, hot dog party while hot dog stock lasts

The show will be up from sat 12th - fri 25th of November

The Cobra Museum for Modern Art in Amstelveen is presenting the first European solo exhibition of Dolores Zorreguieta (Buenos Aires, 1965). The work of this New York artist is of an overwhelming visual force. The exhibition ‘Love/Romance’ consists of a broad variety of techniques including video, installations and drawings. Several works have been specially created by the artist with a view to the presentation in the Cobra Museum.

The introduction of the artist to the Netherlands is underpinned by an accompanying catalogue published by Waanders Uitgevers (written by the well-known filmmaker, art critic and curator Alberto Giudici and Martha Wilson, founder of the acclaimed New York Franklin Furnace). The publication also includes a dvd giving a detailed portrait of the artist. Filming for the dvd took place in the run up to the exhibition and shows Zorreguieta in her studio working on several projects. The AVRO is transmitting the documentary at the start of the exhibition in the program ‘Weeldekwartier’.
