2. Portia Munson, FF Alumn, at PPOW, NY, thru February 3, 2007

PORTIA MUNSON
GREEN
thru February 3, 2007

P·P·O·W is pleased to announce Green, a solo exhibition by Portia Munson. In this exhibition Portia Munson will show her flower mandala photographs, a large installation, and paintings. The exhibition is accompanied by a full-color catalogue.
Enter the gallery and experience Green: Lawn a large-scale floor installation made up of thousands of green plastic objects, collected by Munson resulting in a full-throttle inorganic color experience. Piles of green-on-green plastic detritus flood the gallery floor, in patches of varying shades, to create a plastic lawn. As in her earlier installations -- Pink Project and The Garden – Lawn delves into who we are as a culture, as defined by the objects we mass-produce, consume and throw away. Munson transforms these objects into powerful assemblages that critique our material values and “throwaway” mentality.

In the same room, large-scale flower images line the gallery walls. Using flowers from her garden, Munson creates mandalas that contain an intensity of detail, and saturation of color, which mirrors the dense floor installation. Munson collects the flowers at their peak and lays them out on a scanner in concentric patterns. These flower arrays are captured in high-resolution scans and printed on watercolor paper with pigmented ink. Each print is a sharply detailed kaleidoscope that mixes the utopian beauty of the Garden of Eden with the dizzying visuals of a psychedelic trip -- the flowers seem to explode out in a pyrotechnical climax.

In the back gallery a grouping of Munson’s recent small still-life paintings will also be on display. In these paintings Munson depicts singular objects, in contrast to the thousands that make up Lawn. The paintings isolate common objects – such as an empty angel-food cake pan, or a plastic leaf with a toy stick – allowing individual meanings to resonate. Portia Munson is best known for her saturated pink plastic installation at the New Museum’s Bad Girls show in 1994. She had her first one-person show at White Columns in 1993 and has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions as well as two solo shows at Yoshii Gallery. Recently, as part of a show titled Out of Context, a billboard-size image of a flower mandala was exhibited at The Fields Sculpture Park at Art Omi International Arts Center, Omi, NY, and Munson recently had a solo exhibition at SUNY Ulster which included Pink Project: Mound. Last year she exhibited her flower mandalas as part of a two-person show at P·P·O·W. Munson lives and works in Catskill, NY.

6. Matt Mullican, FF Alumn, at Tate Modern, UK, January 27

Matt Mullican Under Hypnosis
Saturday 27 January 2007, 22.00–23.30

Tate Modern, Bankside, SE1 9TG
Booking recommended
Call: + 44 20 7887 8888
Visit: http://www.tate.org.uk
American artist Matt Mullican will give a performance while in a state of hypnosis at Tate Modern on Saturday 27 January as part of UBS Openings: Saturday Live, a dynamic and ground-breaking programme of live performances and film at Tate Modern every two months.

Matt Mullican (b. 1951), whose work also includes drawing, sculpture and installation, has been using performance since the 1970s and hypnosis since 1978 to investigate the nature of reality, behaviour and association. His performances under hypnosis deal with questions of who he is and what lies within him and how hypnosis alters his identity in so-called reality.

He has also long been fascinated by the relationship between information and perception as it is filtered through emotive or unconscious associations. The symbols, shapes and repetitive patterns that he paints during these highly concentrated performances focus on such concerns. Mullican likens the focused, deliberate act of artistic creation with the state of trance under hypnosis, since he regards actions and processes of which we are not aware as fundamental for all artistic creative processes.

Although these events are unpredictable by their very nature, painting under hypnosis is often only a part of the performance. In previous events Mullican has interacted with the audience and for this performance furniture and large sheets of paper will be available for the artist to work with.

In his interview with Vicente L. de Moura, professional hypnotist, Mullican states: “(….) I feel more like an archaeologist. I’m digging into my brain and I’m kind of unearthing these states of mind that I don’t think are at all alien to everybody else. I think everybody deals with these states of mind but they don’t recognise them. They happen too quickly perhaps.”

The performance will take place under the bridge in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall and the artist will work mainly in black acrylic paint on large sheets of paper (approximately 2 x 3 metres). He will be hypnotised by a professional hypnotist.

UBS Openings: Saturday Live, Matt Mullican under Hypnosis, is co-curated by Catherine Wood, Curator, Tate (Contemporary Art and Performance) and Marc Pérennès, Independent Live Art Producer. The Arts Council England has provided additional support for this event.

UBS Openings: Saturday Live is a new strand of programming at Tate Modern which began in May 2006, presenting live art events, performance and film every two months. Events take place in the Turbine Hall, the Starr Auditorium, Level 2 Café and throughout the main galleries on Levels 3 and 5. The highlight of the programme is UBS Openings: The Long Weekend, an annual four-day festival taking place over the final bank holiday weekend in May.

10. David Medalla, FF Alumn, in South Hill Park, UK, Jan 27, noon-10 pm, and more

Fresh Festival, 27th January, 12noon ˆ 10pm, South Hill Park
www.freshfest.org

David Medalla, FF alumnus, a pioneer of performance art, will give a talk on his live events at  "Fresh Fest", an international festival of performance art, at South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell, Berkshire, England, on Saturday, January 27, 2007, at 7 p.m. In the 80s, David Medalla was an artist-in-resident at South Hill Park. Medalla co-organised there, with Gavin Henderson, Alistair Snow and Jeni Walwin, the first two international festivals of performance art in England. David Medalla also collaborated with the English Sir Michael Tippett in an impromptu event which marked the inauguration of the Oscar Wilde Theatre at South Hill Park. Oscar Wilde wrote his play "The Importance of Being Earnest" inside the elegant English country house which was home and studio for David Medalla when he was artist-in-resident at South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell. Last year, 2006, David Medalla, together with Adam Nankervis, gave performances in Santiago de Chile and in Valparaiso, curated by Alexia Tala. Medalla's talk in Bracknell will focus on the way he constructs his memorable and legendary performances. Richard Kingdom, director of "Fresh Fest", will introduce David Medalla's talk.

This is the 8th Fresh festival and our most exquisite line-up yet; an absolute MUST SEE for anyone with even a passing interest in performance!  Brian Catling, William Hunt, Stephanie Douet et al.  
 
DISCUSSION:  David Medalla (international performance artist and man behind the London Biennale), Sally O‚Reilly (writer, critic and journalist who writes regularly for Art Monthly, Frieze, Contemporary and Modern Painters and programmed the performance work for the Whitstable Biennale), Tanuja Amarasuriya (Live Art Producer for Theatre Bristol) and Simon Day (director of the B-Theatre initiative, West Midlands) will all be discussing ŒWhat Did You Get Into This For?‚ as part of Fresh.

COME BY COACH:  If you‚re travelling from London then our coach is the most economical, convenient and trouble-free way of getting to Fresh and back again.  No need to stress about catching the last train from Bracknell or worry about getting from the train station to South Hill Park, just jump on the coach, sit back and think about art!  Visit www.freshfest.org to book a place or two (ADVANCED BOOKING ESSENTIAL)

CALL FOR ARTISTS:  Fresh never rest; the call is already out for artists to take part in our next festival at South Street in Reading on 28 April 2007.  Our advice: come along to this one, say hello and you‚ll be more likely to be selected for the next one!  More information and application forms from www.freshfest.org (click on the call for artists‚).  Deadline for this one is 12th February

OTHER CALLS FOR ARTISTS:  If you‚re an artist making performance then these might be worth a look:

BAC DEVOTED & DISGRUNTLED SLEEPOVER:  Battersea Arts Centre are hosting the second Devoted & Disgruntled event this weekend (13th & 14th) in which the future of theatre is given a thorough thinking over.  To inject a bit of the old fashioned Œturning up in a campervan, making work on the dole, all about the art‚ energy, Fresh has organised a sleepover for the event.  Last we checked (Friday) there were 20 D&D tickets left; get one of those and you can sleep over ˆ BUT SPACE IS LIMITED TO 20 TENTS SO LET US KNOW IN ADVANCE IF YOU‚RE IN BY EMAILING richard@freshfest.org

GO AND SEE:  Fresh is obviously the best thing since sliced bread and so if you‚re pennies are limited then that‚s the one to pick (37 things to see in just one day for heaven's sakes; that'‚s amazing http://www.freshfest.org!) but if you‚ve been given lots of money for Christmas or are feeling particularly keen this month then there are plenty of excellent things to do:

12. Andrea Kleine, FF Alumn, at Walker Art Center, MN, Feb 2-3, 8 pm

If you are in Minneapolis, I hope you can come to this exciting project I am working on at the Walker Art Center. It is a performance piece I wrote and directed, collaborating with composer Bobby Previte, and it features an amazing live band and a 10-person medieval choir.

BOBBY PREVITE + ANDREA KLEINE
THE SEPARATION
Featuring The Coalition of the Willing (Marco Benevento, Reed Mathis, Bobby Previte) and the award-winning early music choir The Rose Ensemble.

FRI FEB 2 + SAT FEB 3, 8pm at the Walker Art Center [Minneapolis]

Drum legend Bobby Previte¹s young electric band the Coalition of the Willing crashes into the mystical voices of the Rose Ensemble in THE SEPARATION, a reimagination of both Guillaume Dufay's 15th-century choral epic Missa Sancti Jacobi and Olivier Messiaen's organ masterwork La Nativité du Seigneur. Playwright/director Andrea Kleine¹s dark parable about a sheep and a UFO invades Previte¹s wall of sound. Hungarian designer Anna Kiraly illuminates this heavy metal requiem with her shadowy installations.

Commissioned by the Walker Art Center, The Separation has its world premiere Friday­Saturday, February 2­3, at 8 pm in the William and Nadine McGuire Theater.

14. Lillian Ball at The Queens Museum, NY, opening Feb 4, 2-5 pm

Opening Reception: Sunday February 4th, 2-5 PM
Lillian Ball: GO ECO (2004-2007)
February 4 - May 27, 2007

GO ECO is an interactive video installation that illuminates the different perspectives of several participants involved in a wetland preservation project. The concept is metaphorically based on the ancient Asian game of Go, (originally, one of the Four Arts of China along with music, painting, and poetry) which uses strategies to capture territory through balancing tactics. GO ECO also functions as an informational serious game installation of video vignettes. Digitally manipulated images with sound are projected in quadrants on the screen to lead players through to the next move. The final outcome of the game is determined by the teamwork of players making their way toward a solution that enables all sides to win or to lose together. GO ECO allows players of many ages to be empowered and to learn about the issues through an art experience that maps paths of action.

Reopening of the Panorama of the City of New York
February 4, 2007 - ongoing

The Panorama of the City of New York, originally commissioned by Robert Moses for the 1964 Worlds Fair, is the largest architectural scale model in the world. With a scale of 1 inch: 100 feet, the Panorama has always offered a truly unique view of the five boroughs, one that has left the millions who have seen it in awe. At 9,335 square feet, it includes the 895,000 buildings that comprised the city in 1992, when the model was last updated. Having been closed since September, the Panorama makes a triumphant return after undergoing a massive lighting and multimedia effects upgrade. Now featuring a twelve-minute tour of the model and the city it represents, complete with dazzling lighting effects, archival and present day still and moving pictures projected on huge screens throughout, and the sounds of the city, the new Panorama will continue to transform how viewers experience this one of a kind treasure, and the city it captures in wonderful miniature.
