2. Yoko Ono, DJ Spooky, FF Visionaries, new record release

Dear Friends and Colleagues -
I'm writing to say a basic hello, and I hope this message finds you well and in good spirits. It's been a while!

This is just a quick email about a project I'm really happy about. I've been a big Yoko Ono fan for years, and this is a mini project we put together a while ago. Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth plays guitar on the track, and the whole album has folks like Cat Power, The Flaming Lips, Peaches, Hank Shocklee (who produced Public Enemy), and others.

The album title is called Yes, I'm a Witch and it's Yoko's first full length album in a while. If you have a moment, the track I did with her is up on www.myspace.com/djspooky and the official release of the full album was on February 6, 2007 on Astralwerks. It's called " Rising" and its one of Yoko's poems - her voice came out great in the mixdown!

Check it out!

CELEBRATING 15 YEARS OF PERFORMANCE AT BAX/BROOKLYN ARTS EXCHANGE

Lady centaurs journey through a supernova-threatened galaxy; three women “dance without quitting” and a group of friends find a photo album on a city dumpster in the first week of performance in the 2007 Annual Women’s Performance Festival at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange. In the second weekend, Terry Dame’s Electric Junkyard Gamelan performs funky bass lines, modal melodies and interlocking rhythms on instruments fashioned from found objects. Always surprising, often uplifting, join us for this annual favorite of the BAX season.

NEW DANCE AND PERFORMANCE

Curated by BAX Dance Artist in Residence Faye Driscoll
Friday & Saturday, March 9 – 10 at 8 PM

Dance After Quitting is a new trio choreographed by KARINNE KEITHLEY with longtime collaborators TARYN DIGGS and DAWN SPRINGER. It is built to be both a simple event and a springboard for spatial solutions to staging texts. Dance after quitting asks what the trio might like to do together if the concern is not cleverness, artistry, talent or potential, but rather the simple shared activity of dancing a trio with a room full of people.

Upon the binary star system of Alpha and Proxima Centauri, two lovely lady centaurs are simultaneously enchanted and entranced by themselves and each other. They frolic through the glistening pulsations of their stars' nuclear fusion, until one day their world is threatened by supernova. The Lady Centaur Show is a Nouveage Fantasy Death Metal Poperetta created by ASUBTOUT, the binary team of ELEANOR HULLIHAN and KATY PYLE. With music both thrashing and soothing, dances lovely and preposterous, and videos that transport you to the outer reaches of the galaxy, asubtout creates a magical world.

REBECCA BROOKS presents a video dance performance. “We discovered a photo album on top of a public trashcan, pictures spilling out of it, and I of course picked it up. She told me to throw it away immediately, put it back now, and then we opened it, and everything about the situation got really creepy, and the sun was setting and her face looked crazy. Now I keep it at my girlfriend's house, stashed at the bottom of her closet in a plastic bag with the handles tied together.” Ok Then Let's Do This Together Now is performed by Felicia Ballos, Rebecca Brooks, Beth Gill, and Sarah White.

TERRY DAME’S ELECTRIC JUNKYARD GAMELAN

Friday & Saturday, March 16-17 at 8PM

Terry Dame’s Electric Junkyard Gamelan plays original music on invented instruments and objects. Performing on contraptions such as the Rubarp (rubber band harp), the Sitello and Kachapitar (electric strings) the Terraphone (copper pipe horn) – and an arsenal of percussion instruments fashioned from old farm equipment, turntable platters, saw blades and truck springs – these five musicians play haunting modal melodies that float over funky basslines and interlocking danceable rhythms. Electric Junkyard Gamelan features Robin Burdulis, Terry Dame, Mary Feaster, Lee Frisari and Julian Hintz.

BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange is a multi-faceted performing arts center offering an annual presenting season, artist services, and educational programs for youth and adults.

4. Bill Beirne, FF Alumn, at PS1, Long Island City, opening Feb 11

Bill Beirne, FF Alumn, in "Emergency Room" at P.S.1 opening Sunday 2/11
EMERGENCY ROOM
February 8 - March 19, 2007

P.S.1 proudly presents Emergency Room, a constantly evolving collaborative exhibition conceived and led by artist Thierry Geoffroy, a.k.a. Colonel. To realize this project, Geoffroy has invited over thirty local and international artists to create and install new works in a range of media, all generated daily in response to current events. Emergency Room is on view in the third floor Archive Galleries from February 8 through March 19, 2007.

Emergency Room is motivated by a desire to learn what other artists think about current affairs from varied international perspectives under strict time constraints. By providing a physical space in which artists can display works made in reaction to current events, Emergency Room takes the pulse of the artistic community today. On each day of the exhibition, artists will install new work in response to the events of the last 24 hours, an arrangement that recalls daily news cycles. The artworks stay on view until the next morning whenthey are moved to an adjacent archive space and replaced by new work.

Emergency Room seeks to foster a sense of community among the participating artists and an atmosphere in which the gallery serves as a laboratory both for personal expression and formal experimentation. Artists will come with very different methodologies, from the politically charged to the personally intimate, to interact with a specific space and develop an on-going project together.

French-born Thierry Geoffroy (b. 1961) has presented his art internationally since 1995. Recently, he had solo exhibitions at Overgaden Institute for Contemporary Art, Copenhagen, Denmark; IKM Museum, Oslo, Norway; Fries Museum, Leeuwarden, Netherlands; Sprengel Museum, Hannover, Germany; and Devron Arts, Huntly, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. In 2006, Geoffroy presented Emergency Room at Galerie Olaf Stuber, Berlin; and Kunsthallen Nikolaj, Copenhagen. He received the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres from France in 2003. Geoffroy will present a project at the 2007 Venice Biennale.

Emergency Room is organized by P.S.1 Director Alanna Heiss.

Major support for Emergency Room at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center is provided by the Danish Arts Agency

6. Stephanie Skura, FF Alumn, at Juniata College, PA, Feb 15-24

hello all,

coming soon! enrico iv -- the elemental theater project I'm working on in pennsylvania, with the gravity project, new professional company affiliated with juniata college.

we're calling it 'elemental' theater, because words like interdisciplinary & holistic seem to lose their meaning over time. this theater integrates movement, a poetic approach to language and voice, and gives equal weight to elements of design, light, and sound. the piece is loosely based on the pirandello play 'enrico iv' - a fascinating text in itself about identity, sanity, narcissism.

the collaborators are all heavy-weights, a dream team for me:

andy belser, artistic director.
stephanie skura, associate artistic director
randy ward, set
john abrosone, lights
liz prince, costumes
john nuhn, music

performers include two from the professional company: andrew olewine & kathleen clarke. they're both amazing. the rest are students from juniata college, most of them trained by us in an interdisciplinary approach to performance. this piece will be reworked for the professional company's repertory next year.

performances are thursday thru saturday february 15 - 17 & 22 - 24, 2007.
place: the halbritter center for the performing arts
juniata college
huntingdon, pa

huntingdon is just south of state college, in central PA. it's a 4-hour drive or 5-hour train ride (on amtrak) from nyc.
link to our agent's website: http://www.arktype.org/arktours.html

for tickets and info, call 814-641-3608
link to juniata college info on this project: http://departments.juniata.edu/theatre/0607/enricoiv.html

hope you can come. I'll be there for the first two shows, feb 15 & 16. please let me know if you're coming -- it would be great to see you!

“ECHOES: Women Inspired by Nature”

Exhibition Dates:  April 6, 2007 to May 20, 2007
Opening Receptions:  April 7and May 5, 6–10 pm

“Echoes: Women Inspired by Nature” is an exhibition to be held at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (OCCCA) from April 5 through May 20, 2007. Curated by art historian Betty Ann Brown and visual artist Linda Vallejo, the exhibition will highlight the work of 21 women artists who focus on the natural environment. In artwork that ranges from traditional easel painting, to the newer media of photography and installation, to the very Postmodern use of non-art materials such as Gummy Bear candies, these artists call our attention to the beauty and wonder of the natural world, and to humanity’s deep and abiding connection with it. They also address issues such as pollution, over-consumption of resources, scientific atrocities and animal abuse.

Rachel Carson, founder of the contemporary environmental movement, has written: “It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know of wonder and humility.” With everything from sumptuous landscape paintings to horrific digital images of genetic misapplication, the artworks in this exhibition compel us to “turn again to the earth.” They show us the beauty and the horror of contemplating nature in the twenty-first century.

We don’t need to have seen Al Gore’s compelling documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, to become aware of the devastating environmental changes in recent years. On an almost daily basis, television newscasters report on the destructive results of toxic spills, raging fires, rising pollution, or the horrific storms exacerbated by climate changes. Although artists are neither politicians (no matter how politically engaged), nor environmental scientists (no matter how intrigued by the vicissitudes of scientific inquiry), they can and do respond to the state of the natural world around them. In creating new and intriguing images of nature, artists can compel us to view our natural environment with fresh eyes. As Rachel Carson has noted, “The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.”

Invited artist

Suggested donation $ 7

OptoSonic Tea is a new regular series of meetings dedicated to the convergence of live visuals with live sound which focuses on the visual component. These presentation-and-discussion meetings aim to explore different forms of live visuals (live video, live film, live slide projection and their variations and combinations) and the different ways they can come into interaction with live audio. Each evening features two different live visual artists or groups of artists who each perform a set with the live sound artists of their choice. The presentations are followed by an informal discussion about the artists' practices over a cup of green tea. A third artist, from  previous generations of visualists or related fields, is invited specifically to participate in this discussion so as to create a dialogue between current and past practices and provide different perspectives on the present and the future. Organized by Katherine Liberovskaya and Ursula Scherrer

What is a video podcast?
A podcast is a media file that is distributed by subscription (paid or unpaid) over the Internet using syndication feeds, for playback on mobile devices and personal computers. Like 'radio', it can mean both the content and the method of syndication. Though podcasters' web sites may also offer direct download or streaming of their content, a podcast is distinguished from other digital audio or video formats by its ability to be downloaded automatically, using software capable of reading feed formats such as RSS or Atom.

20. Mierle Laderman Ukeles, FF Alumn, in today’s Metro New York

Congratulations to Mierle Laderman Ukeles, FF Alumn, who is pictured in today’s Metro New York – the text of the article follows below.

One city’s trash truck...Is installed as art in Pier 94 for annual Armory Show
by amy zimmer / metro new york FEB 14, 2007

FAR WEST SIDE. The first art work for the 2007 Armory Show was installed on Pier 94 yesterday. Rather, it was driven in.

Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ “The Social Mirror” had to go in now before gallerists begin to install their booths and works next week. It’s a 12-ton, 28-foot-long 1979 Department of Sanitation garbage truck she outfitted with mirrored glass.

“The mirror captures you, but people are afraid to be caught by it,” said Ukeles, who has been the unsalaried artist-in-residence at the DOS for 30 years and constructed the piece in 1983. “You’re right there, part of the whole deal. It’s about the interrelationship between the people who provide the services and the people that get the services.”

Ukeles began to think about garbage, the environment and the invisible workers behind it all in 1969, when she wrote a “Manifesto for Maintenance Art” — an original copy of which will be displayed in the booth set up by the DOS and the Ronald Feldman Gallery.

“I talked about taking care of the individual, the family and the Earth itself,” Ukeles explained. “I called it ‘Earth maintenance.’ In the old days, before the feminist movement, you didn’t talk about this; it wasn’t considered art.”

The booth will feature elements of her past works, such as “Touch Sanitation,” where from 1977 to 1980 she followed routes in all five boroughs to shake the hand of each sanitation worker and say, “Thank you for keeping New York alive.” At P.S.1 in 1987, she created “Re-entry,” a 90-foot sculpture made from 11 tons of recyclables. “I wanted to make it like building blocks so you could imagine [these objects] really could have another use,” she said. Her “Ceremonial Arch Honoring Service Workers in the New Economy,” which was made with 12,000 dirty gloves from sanitation and other workers, graced the World Financial Center in 1988.

As the Fresh Kills Landfill’s official artist, she has created several works for the new park, which will be displayed at the booth as well.

“[Ukeles] brings sanitation to life,” said Keith Mellis, a DOS spokesman, who plans to bring a contingent of sanitation workers to the show, which runs from Feb. 23-26. “We’re hidden in the shadows, but we’re out there working every day and she reminds people of that.”

Up next

Ukeles is working with the DOS anthropologist-in-residence, Robin Nagle, on a salt shed being built on Twelfth Avenue between 55th and 57th streets. “The artwork will be about snow,” Ukeles said. “Everybody loves sanitation workers when it snows. Sanitation is heroic when it snows.”

Artists' Books: Transgression/Excess
February 16-March 31, 2007

Opening Reception on Friday February 16, from 6 - 9 PM

Space Other ( Boston) is pleased to announce Artists' Books: Transgression/Excess , an exhibition about the resolutely special and intimate manifestation of artistic practice that is the artist book. Not rare but still infrequently exhibited, the artist's book is a unique medium that establishes horizontal connections with drawing, painting, objects, sculpture, photography, collage, calligraphy and performance, and to activities like poetry, philosophy, storytelling and sorcery.

The exciting process of probing and activation of a rhizome not only allowed us to collectively put together about 200 works from over 150 artists in relatively short time, but revealed to us a consistency of trajectory that can be experienced through the multidimensionality of our present.  Staying away from deluxe products, we concentrated on small editions or unique pieces printed and/or bounded by the artists themselves. The exhibition is far from a historical survey, although some historically significant works are included thanks to the generosity of several artists, publishers, collectors, dealers and organizations.

Artists' Books:Transgression/Excess attempts to be a laboratory for assemblage and exploration of works that reveal individual affirmations of being different, of continuing and breaking with tradition.

AB:T/E  is the result of a collaboration between Hamburg based artist Dirk Meinzer and Boston gallerist Gamaliel R. Herrera.  The exhibition will be on view at Space Other ( Boston) from February 16 through March 31 2007.  Space Other is located at 63 Wareham Street (between Harrison Avenue and Albany Street) in Boston's South End, and is open Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 6 PM, or by appointment.
