1. Yoko Inoue, FF Fundwinner 2006, at Momenta Art, opening May 12, 7-9 pm

Yoko Inoue, FF Alumn, and Glen Fogel, at Momenta Art, Brooklyn
Opening and reception: Friday, May 12, 7-9 PM
Gallery hours: Thursday through Monday, 12-6 PM
Exhibition dates: May12 through June 12, 2006

Yoko Inoue’s installation titled How American?/Anonymous/Self/Portrait presents a unique approach to portraiture. Related to past performance work by Inoue, the artist herself becomes the subject matter while simultaneously relinquishing specific control of her project through the delegation of the work’s execution to others. A number of artists were asked by Inoue to make portraits of her wearing a wool cap with an embroidered American flag, concealing the artist’s identity and ethnicity. The artists asked to participate are Brandon Soloff, Melanie Baker, Darius Ziura, Alina Zakaite, and an “anonymous street painter.” The work investigates the complexities of ethnic assimilation through the masking of identity and an assumed patriotism driven by market forces.

The other component of this installation is a pile of 100 sweaters and 100 hats knitted with the American Flag on them. Commissioned by Inoue and produced in the Andean region of South America, these wool products are the prototype of a future performance entitled “Transmigration of the SOLD” which investigates the possibilities of redirecting the global market trend of cultural product assimilation in capitalism.

Originally from Osaka, Japan, Yoko Inoue graduated from Hunter College, NY with an MFA. She received the NYFA Fellowship in Sculpture from the New York Foundation for the Arts in 2003. She has recently awarded a grant from the Franklin Furnace Archives, Inc, for the Fund for Performance Art Award, The Joan Mitchell Foundation, Painters and Sculptors Grant Program and a Fellowship grant from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. She will be participating in an artists’ in residence program at .EKWC/European Ceramic Work Center in Holland in 2007.  Inoue’s work has been shown in New York at Greene Naftali Gallery, SculptureCenter, The Bronx Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park, Art in General, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, among other venues. She has had solo exhibitions at Flipside Gallery and five myles in Brooklyn and Von Lintel Gallery in Manhattan. Her exhibitions have been reviewed in the New York Times, Art in America, Sculpture Magazine, Time Out and other publications.

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

Jay Critchley, FF Alum, featured in Boston Globe

Artist, deadpan, floats a proposal Cape turbines critic offers a Vegas style spin

By Jenna Russell, Globe Staff May 2, 2006

Senator Edward M. Kennedy has flexed his considerable political muscle to try to block a wind farm in Nantucket Sound. Governor Mitt Romney strongly opposes the project.

But how would they handle this? A floating theme park, described by its designer, Provincetown artist Jay Critchley, as ''a Las Vegas version of the Cape and islands," to be built on an enormous triangular platform in the midst of the wind turbines.

Some dismiss it as an extravagant -- and expensive -- joke. But Critchley isn't laughing, at least not in public. He says that by proposing the theme park he is trying to bring attention to what he believes is the lack of oversight that the proposed wind farm has received and that he is challenging regulators to give his project similar treatment.

Dreamed up by Critchley, the plans for the Martucket Eyeland Resort & Casino read like classic political satire. Attractions would include the Climate Change Casino & Sweat Lodge, the Captain Ahab Fitness Center, and an amusement park ride called Jaws, Jaws, Jaws, which Critchley describes as ''a simulated eating by a shark -- for the kids."

To be taken even remotely seriously, the 59-year-old Cape Cod artist and provocateur has to insist he has every intention of actually building the theme park. And he does insist. He even filed an application in March with the US Army Corps of Engineers, seeking a permit to move forward with construction.

According to the application, the platform would be anchored between three of the 130 turbines in Nantucket Sound that would comprise Cape Wind.

But in this game of showmanship, federal officials, who admit they were initially amused by Critchley's submission, now caution that the artist is risking serious consequences by forging ahead with his permit request. Applicants found to have knowingly made ''false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements or representations" may be fined $10,000 or imprisoned for up to five years, said Tim Dugan, a spokesman for the Corps' New England district.

''We're working at taxpayers' expense, and we don't want to waste their money," Dugan said with all deliberate earnestness.

Critchley said he is not worried about being prosecuted, though some of his friends are concerned. ''I have other things to worry about, like raising a billion and a half dollars to build the park," he said with equal earnestness.

Corps officials have conducted an initial review of Critchley's application and have asked him for more information. If he does not reply, a spokesman said, his file will be closed. If he moves the process forward, the Department of Justice could be called in to decide if he applied in good faith.

The fate of the Cape Wind farm, while farther along in the planning stage, is still uncertain.

Kennedy supported an effort by Senator Ted Stevens, Republican of Alaska, to block the development by inserting a provision in a sure-to-pass bill funding the Coast Guard that would give the governor of Massachusetts the ability to veto the project. But the provision -- inserted without public debate, after being considered by only the handful of House members and senators negotiating the Coast Guard bill -- has rankled members of both parties.

A group of House members persuaded House leaders to delay a vote on the bill. In the Senate, the chairman and the ranking Democrat on the Energy Committee say they will try to block the Cape Wind provision when the bill comes to the floor.

7. David Medalla, FF Alumn, in Madrid and Berlin, May 2006

DAVID MEDALLA SHOWING IN MADRID AND BERLIN IN MAY 2006

David Medalla, FF alumnus, will show a new version of his celebrated bubble machine, "Cloud Canyons", in the historical exhibition "Filipiniana". curated by Juan Guardiola and organised by Casa Asia, in the magnificent El Cuartel de Conde Duque cultural center in Madrid, Spain. The "Filipiniana" exhibition is the most comprehensive survey of Philippine art of the 20th century. It opens on May 11, 2006 and will run until September 24, 2006. David Medalla made his first bubble-machine in 1963. It was the first work of auto-creative art. Marcel Duchamp created a multiple sculpture in the shape of a medal (a pun on Medalla's surname), incorporating metallic "bubbles", in homage to the Filipino artist.

Various versions of "Cloud Canyons" have been shown in London (at SIGNALS London), at Documenta 5 organised by Harald Szeeman in 1972 in Kassel, Germany, at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, at the City Art Gallery in Auckland, New Zealand, at Tate Britain in London, at the Clocktower Gallery in New York, at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, in the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia, at the Haus der Kulturen die Welt in Berlin, at the Hayward Gallery in London, at Gallery House in London, at Galerie Kai Hilgemann in Berlin, at Indios Bravos in Manila, at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, at the Museum of Modern Art in Oxford, England, at the National Art Gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh and the Kelvingrove Art Museum in Glasgow.

The Tate Gallery of London, England, recently acquired for its permanent collection a version of David Medalla's "Cloud Canyons", which was previously shown in the exhibition "Art of the Sixties"by Chris Stephens.

The first time David Medalla's bubble-machine was shown in America was in the exhibition "Air Art" organised by Willoughby Sharp at the Art Gallery of the University of California in Berkeley, California. That work was illustrated in the book "Minimal Art" edited by Gregory Battcock. A wonderful ievent of serendipity: David Medalla is sharing an exhibition with Willoughby Sharp and German artist Reinhart Beuttner atKunstpunkt Galerie fur Aktuelle Kunst, Schlegelstrasse 6, in Berlin, which opens on May 19, 2006 and will continue until June 10, 2006.

David Medalla's part of the exhibition at Kunstpunkt is entitled "Einstein in Berlin". It will feature a large photo artwork on linen of a photocollage of Medalla's "Einstein Rap" which he performed at the foot of the Felix Mendelsohnn Observatory in Potsdam in celebration of Albert Einstein's birthday. Medalla's photo artwork was originally shown at the ICA Insitute of Contemporary Art in London during the "Cosmic Wrestling Match" between Adam Nankervis and David Medalla, in the show curated by Guy Brett.

Prior to the show at Kunstpunkt, David Medalla will perform with American soprano Dorothea Fayne, Australian artist Adam Nankervis, and several  musicians at Zero Gallery in Kreuzberg. A video of their performance, together with another video of another beautifulperformance by David Medalla entitled "The Ghost of Albert Einstein at Pfauen Insel on the Wansee" wiill subsequently be shown at the Kunstpunkt Berlin.

8. Tim Miller, FF Alumn, at Highways, Santa Monica, May 12-20

Tim Miller, FF Alumn, Performs in L.A. May 12-20 NEW SHOW "1001 BEDS" -

Hi SoCal Folks!

I'll be performing in L.A. my new show 1001 BEDS! It's based on my brand new book of the same name. I'll be performing at Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica May 12-20. 1001 BEDS is a raucous and rowdy exploration of my queer adventures in a performer's life fiercely lived in travels through love, politics, sex and art.  1001 Beds makes its Los Angeles premiere at Highways, Fridays + Saturdays, May 12 + 13 and May 19 + 20 at 8:30 PM. Highways Performance Space is located at 1651 18th Street in Santa Monica. Tickets are $20. For reservations call (310) 315-1459.
Only FOUR performances. Call for tix right away.

"Tim Miller sings that song of the self which interrogates, with explosive, exploding, subversive joy and freedom, the constitution and borderlines of selfhood. . . . You think you don't need to hear such singing? You do! You must!"
-Tony Kushner, playwright of Angels in America

From a gay teen's head-on collision with life in a sleazy hotel across the street from the Hollywood Bowl to an ecstatic vision of a sex-positive future on a mattress in a police holding cell, the show is a  kinky and funny journey thru the beds and hotels and life on the road as a traveling salesman- oops I mean a performance artist! I was doing the math recently and I figured that if I continue to tour as a performer for another twenty years, I will end up sleeping in at least 1000 hotel beds in my lifetime on the road. For maximum poetic oomph, let's say 1001 beds! Yikes!

The book "1001 BEDS" came out THIS MONTH and  is a collection of my essays, performances, manifestos, performance touring stories from Tokyo to Chattanooga and my journals. 1001 BEDS is a fiercely funny, sexy and inspiring story based on excerpts from the book about the transforming power of art and the richness of gay identity lived out loud. Here's a little spiel from my blog.

Ed Ruscha Photographs

"I have eliminated all text from my books - I want absolutely neutral material. My pictures are not that interesting, nor the subject matter. They are simply a collection of "facts"; my book is more like a collection of ready-mades."
Ed Ruscha in an interview with John Coplans (printed in Artforum, February 1965)

The work of the Los Angeles-based artist Ed Ruscha, recognised as the embodiment of West Coast Pop, has not yet been grasped in its full significance. His unique portfolio stands like a monolith in America's contemporary art scene and flits between folk, conceptual and Pop Art, in the tradition of Edward Hopper's melancholia, Marcel Duchamp's readymades and James Deans "laconic smart looks".

The ArteF Gallery exhibits photographs created between 1961 and 2001 in the form of 17 artist's books. "I am a painter, who also photographs a bit." In contrast to his well-known, strongly graphic works, with inserted and often suspended text, Ed Ruscha uses his camera to open up a universe of seemingly banal and stereotypical facades of car lots, roofs, gas stations and swimming pools, in the tradition of Dadaism, constructivism and surrealism. Like Eugéne Atget or Robert Frank before him, Ruscha roamed the side-streets of the everyday searching for the awareness of real life as portrayed in Jack Kerouac's novel On the Road.

"I take things as I find them. A lot of these things come from the noise of everyday life." In his photographic cycles, Ed Ruscha expands and exaggerates the concept of readymades (of "found" works of art, which themselves contain no artistic intervention). They are "readyfound" pictures - pictures which hide no cryptic messages or intellectual meanings. On the first viewing the little photo book's seemingly cheap presentation stands out: the pictures are rough snapshots, documentations of shabbiness, and take the place of everyday, grey pictures and words. Together with his idols, Warhol, Jones and Rauschenberg, this Magritte of the American highway was one of the first to throw an openly democratic look at the everyday, and through Pop Art, to view art no longer as something pregnant with meaning and idealized, but rather to introduce naturalness and neutrality (i.e. an absence of interpretations) into photography. "I can't even look at it as photography, they're just images to fill a book. The presentation is as "neuter gender" as possible." With this quasi-documentary way of viewing the everyday, he has become a forerunner and a revolutionary for a younger generation of artists (e.g. Thomas Ruff, Andreas Gursky and Thomas Struth to name a few).

In the photographs, the industrial complexes, built in America after the Second World World War, stand for anonymity: the rejection of the aesthetic construction of a " Julius Shulman Hollywood Way of Life." Mass production required faceless, functional buildings and vast parking lots, anonymous highways and modern gas stations. These buildings continue to dominate the face of California's cityscape today. Like dinosaurs these complexes now remain, since the industry has dwindled and/or moved abroad. Nevertheless, one of Ruscha's most famous early pictures bears the ironic title: Los Angeles County Museum on fire. The photography of Ed Ruscha highlights, in a visionary manner, the corrosion of Pax Americana and the often desolate conditions of modern America.

11. Mitzi Humphrey, FF Alumn, at art6 gallery, Richmond, VA

This is a note from the printed program this May for "The Invasion Project" shown at art6 gallery (the avant-garde non-profit gallery of which I am co-founder, 6 East Broad Street, Richmond, Virginia). This performance piece is an inspired spin-off from the show "Fluxus Redux" which I curated at the gallery last summer and from the accompanying Pinkney Near Memorial lecture on Fluxus by Dr. Robert Hobbs (The Rhoda B. Thalhimer Professor of Art History at Virginia Commonwealth University). Dr. Hobbs is a prolific writer, art historian and teacher; he was also juror for one of the Venice Biennales.

Director and Producer of "The Invasion Project" Janet B. Rodgers wrote in her history of the "The Invasion Project:" "Last spring my husband and I attended the Pinkney Near Lecture on Fluxus Art at art6 Gallery in Richmond, VA. At the time I was inspired to think about the idea of gathering together a group of artists who were interested in exploring archetypes in performance, working on establishing a common theatrical vocabulary and then creating a theatre piece centering around a theme. In September of 2005 we had our first meeting. Since that time, our working ensemble has expanded and contracted and since late March we have been using our shared theatrical vocabulary and artistic interactions to explore the timely theme of INVASION. What you . . . see this evening are the results of our explorations.

"The elements of the FLUXUS art movement that we have chosen to incorporate into our work are humor, the use of suitcases and other readily available materials, and, on occasion, paper for props. We have attempted to find non-literal, metaphorical ways in which to express our ideas which express the opinions and emotions of the artists involved with the project.

"INVASION" derives from the old Latin word, "invadere. . .to walk into."During the 15th century the French evolved the word to, "invasioun . . .to attack or assault." "When does the 'going into' become the 'attack'? We ourselves decide this moment unconsciously. This piece of theatre brings the choice into our awareness.  Invasion is not something that happens to us. It is only our perception - the difference between these two meanings is the feelings generated within us." (Fauss) Our fears have a lot to do with our perceptions. [This performance] explores our societal excesses, our fears, our acceptance of life and all that it holds as well as 21st century neuroses that can help us to lose our sense of perspective and balance."

Included in "The Invasion Project" production are Anne Woods, Peter Schmidt, Corey Roberts, Ann Furniss, Jeanie Rule, and Kimberly Fauss. Assistant Director is Amanda Loy-Jung, and videographer and Technical Assitant is Katherine Gallagher.

Best wishes,
