1. Joan Hugo, In Memoriam

The Office of the Provost of CalArts is sad to announce the passing of Joan Hugo, who served as Assistant to the Provost from 1990 until 2001. During her tenure at CalArts, Joan was a tireless advocate for student and faculty issues; an ardent historian and archivist (as evidenced by the Disney display off of the CalArts lobby); and an active and supportive participant of CAP and ICAP.

In addition to her job at CalArts, Joan maintained an active arts career as a prominent art critic, curator and editor. She had a long and distingued career as Southern California Coordinating Editor for *Artweek* and published in journals ranging from *Art Issues* to *High Performance* to *Visions*.  She was a founding Board Member at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE); the Library Director and a faculty member at the Otis Art Institute; the author of dozens of art catalogue essays; a moderator of and participant on many arts panels; a sought-after translator of french arts scholarship and writings; and the curator of the internationally renowned exhibition *Artwords and Bookworks*, sponsored by the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art.

Joan embodied the spirit and integrity of CalArts: she dedicated her life to the support and encouragement of innovative artists; she melded arts practice with academic inquiry; and she was a trusted friend, colleague and peer. We will miss her.

A memorial will be announced at a later date.

Series curated by Susan Fleminger of Abrons Arts Center

The Hudson River figures largely into the history of American Art, and continues to enthrall artists who approach it in radically different ways than their forebearers. In this dialogue, Wave Hill's Curator Jennifer McGregor speaks with three artists, Brandon Ballengee, Margaret Cogswell and Stacy Levy, who have explored the Hudson River and seek to connect it to the public by revealing its ecology, history and monumentality.

Galinsky shows short films Monday February 13, 6pm at ABC Film and Video

"Monday Night Freebies" Short Film and Music Video Screening by Galinsky, L. Gabrielle Penabaz and Peter Shapiro with a world premiere of Willem DaFoe reading T.S. Eliot and a short featuring Quentin Crisp's last film appearance

This Monday February 13th from 6pm-8pm, at ABC Film and Video http://www.abcfilmvideo.com
303 5th Ave (10th floor, at 31st Street), New York, NY 10016, TEL 212-686-3490

About The Artists: Galinsky is the co-creator and co-producer of "The Manhattan Monologue Slam” bi-coastal theatre event and is an associate producer of “True Crime Real Punishment”, a reality TV show in production with Bighouse TV. Tonight's work features collaborations with video artist Peter Shapiro, sound designer Thomas Linder, film maker Thomas Moore and superlative actor Willem DaFoe and icon Quentin Crisp. More about Galinsky at http://www.galinskyplace.com.

L. Gabrielle Penabaz resides in the Lower East Side of Manhattan because she is lucky and the gods continue to will it. In gratitude, she instigates a variety of livelihoods that dance around the clutches of corporations like a soap-opera gang member waiting for his turn to pounce. This means she can be a performance artist, singer/songwriter (St. Eve), underground party hostess (T.H.o.S.E.), writer, VJ and filmmaker for herself and for others, incorporating travel whenever possible.  She was a story producer for the upcoming (Feb 14) VH1 show, "Can't Get a Date," and is now producing fashion lifestyle segments for Playgirl TV. Gabrielle has just returned from a completely gratuitous trip to Iceland. More info at http://www.thesainteve.com

Animal magnetism, which has also been called mesmerism, was based on the therapeutic value of hypnotism. The term first appears in Franz Anton Mesmer’s 1874 dissertation in regards to the influence of heavenly bodies on humans and their physical, mental and emotional health by means of what he called "animal gravity." This “energy” that he detected was different from physical magnetism in that Mesmer believed that he could "magnetize" paper, glass, dogs and all manner of animate and inanimate objects and substances. He regarded this force, which he said could be exerted by one living organism over another, as a means of alleviating disease. His propositions were as follows: "There exists a mutual influence between the celestial bodies, the earth, and animated things. Animal bodies are susceptible to the influence of this agent, disseminating itself through the substance of the nerves." In the contemporary lexicon, animal magnetism also refers to sexuality in that a person can have such seductive qualities that he/she can bring out the carnal nature of a person via their animal magnetism.

Animal Magnetism explores these topics as well as the zoomorphic dimension of humans and the anthropomorphizing of animals.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and through generous grants from the following: The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, LMCC's Fund For Creative Communities/NYSCA, The New York City Economic Development Corporation, The Puffin Foundation, the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation, The Greenwall Foundation, and the members of the Artists Alliance Incorporated.
