1. Diane Torr, FF Alumn, World AIDS Day event, Glasgow, Scotland, December 1

Brother for a Day - Benefit for PHACE Scotland December 1st 2005 World AIDS Day
9pm-2am Waged - £7 / Unwaged - £5
Brunswick Hotel, Brunswick Street, Glasgow

This BROTHER FOR A DAY event is one that New York performance artist, Diane Torr, initiated on December 1 st, 8 years ago at the infamous Club Mother in New York’s Meat Packing District. Originally it was an event where sisters would for one day, become their brothers (blood or soul) who had died of AIDS. The sisters could celebrate the lives of their brothers by being a living requiem to them, and thereby fill the vacuum created by their loss.

Over the years, the event has expanded to include artists, performers, and anyone of any gender who wants to remember both those who have died of AIDS, and those who are interested in its prevention. Now Diane has brought her BROTHER FOR A DAY event to the Brunswick Hotel, Glasgow in a benefit for

PHACE Scotland , a major HIV/AIDS service provider for the West of Scotland and Grampian. PHACE Scotland provides vital services including; 1-1 Counselling, Welfare Rights Advice, Gay Men’s Services and administering the Crusaid Hardship Fund in Scotland.

Not only will you be contributing to one of the worthiest HIV/AIDS charities in Scotland (PHACE Scotland also provides all the free condoms and lube in clubs and bars around town), this night will be a uniquely fabulous experience.

Hosted by comedienne Viv Gee, with music by dj Alan Miller (of Hush Puppy, Utter Gutter, Abnormals Anonymous) and live music by Murnie and a variety of performances including drag kings, Mister “EE” and dusty Donald; faux queen Hedonista Trout-Snaffler RGDQ, and performances by Suzie Sparkle, Doreen, oxy-jen x, post-queer art student weirdos, Magnanimous Anonymy - Seb and Nat. There are excellent raffle prizes to be won and a slave to bid for, in a real live SLAVE AUCTION.

With bountiful thanks to our sponsors:
The Brunswick Hotel; Unison; Pernod/Ricard
Come one, come all!! (but please, wear a condom!)

Tadej Pogacar & The P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Museum of Contemporary Art,
TREUHAND PUZZLE,  2005

Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst Leipzig
Karl Tauchnitz Straße 11   04107 Leipzig
Exhibition 2 
"Shrinking Cities" - Interventions"
November 26, 2005 to January 29, 2006

The basic social process that has been unfolding in Eastern Europe is one of privatization. This concerns not only a political rupture but, primarily, an economic one, in which there is no longer any valid social contract. The task of Treuhandanstalt (or Treuhand) was to transform the formerly socialist East German economy into a “replica” of the West German model.

The formation of a TREUHAND PUZZLE is an open organizational chart that represents a group search for the hierarchies and informations between involved companies, banks, political parties, the economic and political elite etc. The big green shape represent a territory of former East Germany. Over this field there is a diagram spread giving an implication about possible connections and relations. The diagram, formed as a system of light blue line structures has more connected center spots that indicates existence of several related power centers that collaborate closelly. Circles in different colours stands: pink for bussines men, white for companies, light green for politicians, dark green for liquidators and consultants, dark red for banks.
This is a participatory “puzzle,” and museum visitors are encouraged to participate in playing and shaping the relations and connections among the various protagonists of politics and economy.

Organized by Suzanne Varni and Paul Clay

Contemporary art and culture do not materialize without effort. Just as with all ages and cultures it is the drive of a people which calls forth the resources, both physical and creative, to accomplish the work, which in turn enriches the present and is bequeathed as heritage to the generations to come.

Recently there has been a renewed appreciation of this need to support the work of artists if we hope to see it continue to come into existence. This new awareness in the arts can be seen in a number of vital initiatives, from the seminal report “Culture Counts: Strategies for a More Vibrant Cultural Life for New York City”, 2001, initiated by the New York Foundation for the Arts, to the more recent survey, “The Continuing Economic Impact Upon Visual Artists of all Disciplines in NYC”, 2004 by Jonathan Slaff and Delphine Veaudor.

We have been reminded that we cannot take anything for granted. The status quo does not automatically maintain itself. If we want a great City and a great Nation, we have to make it. We have to build, to rebuild and foster. We must provide space and resources where none exists and must work to conserve the materials already at hand. By maintaining a stock of available art studios and increasing the availability of affordable and accessible space for artists in Lower Manhattan, AAI helps the arts to flourish.

Working with proven methods and best practices, AAI implements programs to increase culture and serve New York City. The practice of making art does not occur by itself. It must be nurtured. When artists have the chance to create art in their own studio workspace, AAI's methods for serving arts and culture transform into the art-making practice.

AAI always looks for new opportunities for collaboration and enhancement of the arts, often through joint ventures with other organizations and institutions. Here, the Office of the Manhattan Borough President demonstrates a strong vision by presenting contemporary artwork in their gallery space. AAI is honored to be working with them to serve the needs of artists and the city. In presenting this set of art works we look to support and strengthen the cultural landscape downtown, and celebrate the artists, the ones who both reflect culture, and help to create it.

Each image is a collaboration between two artists born in different countries. "At a time when there is so much conflict around the world," said Peter Gabriel, "it is gratifying to see artists from different cultures and with different religious backgrounds collaborating to bring about change." Collaborations in the series include:

* Shirin Neshat, born in Iran & Izhar Patkin, born in Israel
* Olaf Breuning, born in Switzerland & Fabrice Hyber, born in France
* Cai Guo-Qiang, born in China & Kiki Smith, born in Germany

7. Doug Beube, FF Alumn, at Temple Judea Museum, Elkins Park, PA, opening December 11, 3-5 pm.

The Temple Judea Museum Presents Doug Beube
A Void

Books are the medium in Beube’s sculpture. The viewer recognizes the book and its contents, even though they have been transformed, and is invited to participate in a dialogue with, or critique of, the visual object.  For example, in one of Beube’s bookworks entitled, A Void; Consonants and Vowels (After George Perec,) the intentional elimination of essential text alludes to historical and contemporary Jewish issues and purposefully refers to the writings of Holocaust survivor George Perec in his novel A Void, wherin he equates the removal of the letter “e” from his work with fate of the Jews in France during World War II. The bookworks and collages in this exhibition carry this theme one step further, referencing not just “the Final Solution,” but additionally, the problems of ethnic cleansing, religious hatred and social injustice today.

Ms. Arneson establishes an atmosphere in which all the participants feel comfortable investigating and sharing thoughts, feelings and emotions.

14. Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga, FF Alumn, at Momenta Art, Brooklyn, opening December 9

LEFT OUT: What's Left, an installation by Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga,
Momenta Art, 72 Berry St. Brooklyn, NY
Opening Friday, December 9th on exhibit through January 23rd

Drawing from public text submissions to an online repository of personal perspectives on Nicaragua, Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga constructs a revisionist history portraying the ebb and flow of Latin American Marxist revolution. At a time when the U.S. Government considers possible flaws in its current interventionist strategies and  as South American socialist leaders challenge U.S. policy, the installation "FALLOUT: What's Left" collapses the past with the present in an attempt to rattle the U.S.'s media amnesia. The installation will feature propaganda posters commissioned for the installation from four designers: Isabel Chang, Enrique Sacasa, Ed Adams and David Ulrich; a new video game by the artist "Always Go Left;" a mini FM public radio station and free Scype sessions during the holiday season for migrant's separated from family. For a prelude to the installation please visit: http://turbulence.org/Works/fallout/.

Momenta Art is located at 72 Berry Street, ground floor, between N9th and N10th Sts. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

By subway, take the L train to Bedford top (the first stop in Brooklyn). Exit on the Bedford side. Walk one block towards the river to Berry Street. Make a right on Berry Street and continue 2 1/2 blocks
