1. Dan Perjovschi, FF Alumn, at MoMA, NY, May 2-Aug 27

Projects 85: Dan Perjovschi
May 2–August 27, 2007

The Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, second floor

Dan Perjovschi (Romanian, b. 1961), who lives and works in Bucharest, has transformed the medium of drawing, using it to create an object, a performance, and an installation. In the last decade, Perjovschi has made his drawings spontaneously in museum spaces, allowing global and local affairs to inform the final result. For his first solo museum exhibition in the United States, the artist will draw witty and incisive political images, in response to current events, on one wall of The Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium. Two weeks before the official opening, beginning April 19, Perjovschi will draw on the wall during public hours, allowing visitors to observe the creation of the work. The project is accompanied by a pamphlet created by the artist.

Projects 85 is organized by Roxana Marcoci, Curator, Department of Photography, The Museum of Modern Art.

The Projects series is made possible by the Elaine Dannheisser Projects Endowment Fund and by The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art and the JA Endowment Committee.

Special thanks to the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York.

3. Stanya Kahn, FF Alumn, at Hammer Museum, LA, opening May 12

Stanya Kahn and Harry Dodge show video in Eden's Edge: 15 Los Angeles Artists at the Hammer Museum, opening May 12th, 2007.

May 13 - September 2, 2007

Eden 's Edge: Fifteen LA Artists is an exploration of art made in Los Angeles during the past decade that crosses generations, mediums, and materials to link artists who create work ingrained with intensely personal visions. The exhibition features the work of 15 artists—Ginny Bishton, Mark Bradford, Liz Craft, Sharon Ellis, Matt Greene, Elliott Hundley, Stanya Kahn & Harry Dodge, Monica Majoli, Matthew Monahan, Rebecca Morales, Lari Pittman, Ken Price, Jason Rhoades, Anna Sew Hoy, and Jim Shaw—who share a dedication to craft and mix a wide array of media to create fantasized, often ambiguous, worlds. The artists featured in Eden's Edge: Fifteen LA Artists share a perspective toward landscape and figure that investigates complex contradictions, which are inherent to life in Los Angeles and more broadly to contemporary American culture.

Eden 's Edge: Fifteen LA Artists is organized by Gary Garrels, Chief Curator and Director of Exhibitions and Programs, Hammer Museum.

"The Roman Scandal of 1599 returns..."
Save The Date:
You are cordially invited to an
Open Rehearsal
by
John Jahnke and The Hotel Savant,
Watermill Center Spring Artists-in-Residence
Thursday, May 10, 2007
2:30 pm
of
Antonin Artaud's
The Cenci
Translation by Richard Sieburth

The Cenci is Antonin Artaud’s deliciously nasty and only fully realized attempt at putting on stage what he set out to describe in his revolutionary Theater of Cruelty manifestos. Based on an infamous trial and inspired by Stendhal’s sordid case history, as well as Shelley’s impassioned venture into realms thea trical, Artaud’s version of the Roman scandal of 1599 takes on a wicked life of its own in his stinging account of Catholic oppression and greed. Rarely staged, John Jahnke and the Hotel Savant will present the first American translation ever approved by the Artaud estate. This terse and thrilling interpretation, created specifically for their usage by Richard Sieburth of the French Institute/NYU, will premiere in a highly visual and unique production at The Ohio Theatre, New York City, in February 2008. Their residency will be the first step taken toward defining the text and shape of the impending production.

Featuring: John Fleck, Carey Urban, Hillary Spector, Todd D'Amour, Satya Bhabha, Ryan Colwell, Alexander Lane and Joshua Seidner. Direction: John Jahnke, Assistant Direction: Jill Samuels, Sound Design: Kristin Worrall, Set Design: Peter Ksander, Stage Management: Melissa Jernigan, Production Management: Nina Kulmala.

Reception to follow.

Tours of the Watermill Center can be arranged after the reception for interested persons.

Announcing the launch of The Holy Bible Project website: http://www.TheHolyBibleProject.com

The Holy Bible Project
A 20 Year Art Work
1997-2017
Over 1,000 Participants

This project was started a decade ago and is now half complete.

Cheers,

David Greg Harth

David Greg Harth is a New York City based artist working in various media. Many of his projects are time related. One of his current projects is The Holy Bible Project— an important 20-year art work begun in April 1997. The art work will be complete in April 2017.

Harth has one Bible that he asks people to sign, and if there is a certain passage they would like to sign, they sign it there, or sign it where ever they would like. [note: Harth is not a religious person]

Harth is not asking for an "autograph." He is asking for people to participate in the art work. Harth asks such people as musicians, artists, actors, writers, politicians, activists, intellectuals, poets, athletes, designers, directors, icons, etc. He will never sell this art work to an autograph collector, but in the future it will be on exhibition in an art gallery and/or art museum.

There are currently over one thousand participants in The Holy Bible Project. For a short list of some of the people who participated in the project by signing the Bible, and for more information about the project, please visit: http://www.TheHolyBibleProject.com

11. Suzanne Stokes, FF Alumn, at SUNY New Paltz, May 12, 2 and 8 pm

We cordially invite you to Cave Dog's new performance piece, Archaeology of a Storm. The show will be performed at the Mckenna Theatre at SUNY New Paltz, NY, on May 12th (shows at 2pm & 8pm).

We hope to see you there, it is sure to be a wonderful event!

Cave Dogs is a shadow-based theatre company which brings together visual artists, musicians, dancers, storytellers, and writers in the spirit of experimental collaboration. Performances consist of innovative, large-scale shadow projections cast onto a screen from sculptures, props, costumes, and the human body. Using improvisational techniques, cast shadows move in concert with projected video imagery, spoken narrative, and an original soundtrack. Working with a variety of artistic mediums, we tell stories, create visual tableaus, and produce effects that conjure both the dreamlike quality of early experimental film and the humor of contemporary animation. Cave Dogs attracts a diverse audience with varying levels of experience with art and performance. In this unique shadow medium, Cave Dogs tells life stories that charm, intrigue, challenge, and captivate adults and children alike.

Archaeology of a Storm is a multi-media, contemporary shadow performance and tragicomedy that explores the influences of pacifism, activism, materialism and poverty as forces that both bind and erode three families over the course of several generations within the same apartment building in New York City. With each succeeding generation, (World War I and the union building/busting era, the late nineteen sixties, and the present), the material, political, and spiritual legacies inherited are revealed and represented in a narrative woven with shadow and video projections and an original soundtrack. The exploration of this landscape is part documentary and part fictionalized realism developed through extensive research, live recordings, and written preservation of oral traditions.

Cave Dogs members are Suzanne Stokes, James Fossett, Michelle Hughes, Tracy Leavitt, Dan Getman, Jeremy Holmes, and Amy Schoonover. Dean Jones created the soundtrack and Michelle Hughes wrote the script in collaboration with Cave Dog members.
