David Khang
"M. Butterfly (After Shigeko Kubota)"
A Performance
Saturday, November 10, 2007 at 4:00pm
Happenings Lounge: 721 Broadway, 6th Floor, Tisch School of the Arts, NYU
Co-sponsored by Performance Studies International #13

David Khang plays with language and its performativity. In recent works that incorporate animals – a beef tongue, live butterflies, and a horse – Khang embodies a language that investigates constructions of race, gender and sexuality. Importantly, M. Butterfly (After Shigeko Kubota) is a citational work:

In 1960, LaMonte Young moved to NYC, and wrote Composition 1960 #5, which instructed the performer to "Turn a butterfly (or any number of butterflies) loose in the performance area."

In 1965, as part of the Perpetual Fluxus Festival, Shigeko Kubota performed her Vaginal Painting at the Cinemateque, NYC.

In 1988, David Henry Hwang's play M. Butterfly was produced on Broadway, NYC.

In 2007, these historically significant pieces – all performed in NYC - become departure points that converge onto one re-imagined and re-mixed performance with divergent and hyperbolic readings that have contemporary social/political/racial/sexual implications. Reinterpreting performative works from the past, then, becomes a means to re-imagine new poetic and political strategies for the present.

Khang's art practice is informed by previous education in the fields of psychology, theology, and dentistry, which continues to inform his ongoing concerns and works-in-progress. After attending Cooper Union (NYC) and Hong-Ik University (Seoul), Khang completed his BFA from Emily Carr Institute, and MFA with Emphasis in Critical Theory, from University of California, Irvine. Khang currently resides and works in Vancouver, where is an Adjunct Faculty at the Emily Carr Institute.

This work was made possible, in part, by Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art, supported by the New York State Council on the Arts and Jerome Foundation.

The videos are of performances which David Medalla gave this year at Nancy in France, with the collaboration of Adam Nankervis, during the midnight festival of music and live art organised by Joel Hubaut with the assistance of Jean-Yves Camus at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Nancy; the dyptich performances entitled "Urbi et Orbis" which David Medalla gave at Galleria Studio Ra, directed by Raffaella Losapio, and at The Factory on Lungotevere Ostiense, with the collaboration of Maurizio Sinibaldi, Vincenzo Ceccato and Emiliano Campagnola, during "La Notte Bianca", the arts festival of Rome; and the video made by Lello Lopez from the impromptu which David Medalla created in the grotto of the Sybil at Cuma in Italy.

Other videos are of David Medalla's impromptus in Berlin, Tokyo and London.

David Medalla, who founded and is the director of the LONDON BIENNALE, will also give advance information of his coming solo show at MUSEUM MAN in Valparaiso, Chile, next December 2008, which will consist of a series of recent self-portraits by David Medalla together with the images of paintings wrongly ascribed to the artist.

Samson Projects excitedly presents Gabriel Martinez’s Self Portraits, his first solo exhibition since joining the gallery.

In 1998, Martinez exhibited a project of small ambrotypes1 for the Philadelphia Museum of Art where he asked 100 heterosexual men to photograph their own feet (via an extended cable release and 35mm film) at the point of self-induced climax. Martinez reprises the project using digital in an almost life-size format (and a remote).

In Self Portraits by Heterosexual Men/2007, Martinez relays an intimate act of pleasure. A role of art is to give pleasure. Martinez asks by word of mouth, flyers and sites like craigslist.com. He sets up with a camera, a tripod, a light, a camera remote, lubricant and some porn, if they so wish to use it. The photographs are taken wherever is agreed. Martinez leaves and returns when instructed to collect his equipment.

‘The work of Gabriel Martinez redirects the coded relays of the reflexive, sometimes transgressive, often self-punishing gay male gaze and places them in relation to broader social collectives and other ways of seeing. Grounded in performative actions—private and public, scripted and spontaneous, theatrical as well as vernacular and banal—they are often recorded by photographs invested with the potency of relics. While his general methods reflect the strategies of contemporary peers who have brought photography and performance closer together over the last three decades, his practice is distinguished by a largesse manifest by its often lavish materiality as well as the scope of the audience to which it is directed.’ 2

Gabriel Martinez was born in 1967 in Miami, FL; lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. He received a MFA in Photography from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University, 1991 and a BFA in Photography from the University of Florida, 1989. He has created performances and exhibited at White Columns (NY), Franklin Furnace, Exit Art (NY), Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Institute of Contemporary Art (PA).

A catalogue with an essay by Richard Torchia is available. For further information, contact the gallery.

1- The ambrotype was developed in the mid-1850s as a less expensive, more practical alternative to the daguerreotype. It is a negative image on glass, made to appear as a positive by showing it against a black background.

5. Nicolás Dumit Estévez, FF Alumn, at Cultural Center of Spain, El Salvador, opens Nov 6

Four American Artists Participate in Embassy Supported Exhibition

Co-curated by Alanna Lockward, Alanna Heiss, Rebeca Dávila, and Juan Sánchez.

Thanks to the support of the U.S. Embassy and the Cultural Center of Spain (CCE, for its acronym in Spanish), the exhibition “Here and Now: Transculture”, will turn the CCE upside down in November. Thirteen contemporary artists- American and Salvadoran- will present their particular visions of trans-culturization through performances, video art and montage.

Starting on November 6, all the public spaces of the CCE will have something to offer in a visit that promises to be vibrant and will include even the bathroom! A traditional “combo” (group of three to four musicians who perform traditional songs live, usually at the beach) will play a repertoire of American pop music, and at the same time a montage with videos will show reflections on gangs, migration, violence and remittances, among other topics.

This smorgasbord of activities uses language that ranges between the lyrical and the direct: as visual poems or as punches in the stomach. The works are a sample of the inevitable changes that arise from the contact –and sometimes clash—between two cultures: American and Salvadoran.

The U.S. Embassy is providing funding for the centerpiece of the exhibition: the work of four artists based in New York – a city identified as the cradle of the most innovative expressions of contemporary art. Kalup Linzy, Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz, Iván Navarro and Nicolás Dumit Estévez will show us their work which explores the changes of individuals according to their environment or because of social pressures. The artists will also offer workshops for their Salvadoran counterparts.

The exhibition was curated by Juan Sánchez, director of the Cultural Center of Spain; Rebeca Dávila a former Fulbright grantee and Art Administrator; Alanna Lockward an independent Dominican curator and Alanna Heiss, a curator from PS1 Contemporary Arts Center --an affiliate of the New York Museum of Modern Art (MOMA)--, whose stay in El Salvador is being sponsored by the U.S. Embassy as well.

The invitation is open for all to enjoy a parade of personalities in which Salvadoran folk characters Ciguanaba and Cipitío share the stage with Sponge Bob and Spiderman, or to reflect on the reading of letters from a Salvadoran convict in the States to his family in El Salvador.


6. Willoughby Sharp, FF Alumn, at Colgate University, opening Oct 31, 4:30 pm

Clifford Gallery, Colgate University, Hamilton, New York to host Willoughby Sharp exhibition "RETROSPECTION" Oct. 31 - Dec. 7, 2007.

Colgate University's Clifford Gallery and the Department of Art and Art History will host an exhibition titled, "RETROSPECTION" co-curated by DeWitt Godfrey and Pamela Seymour Smith, October 31 - December 7, 2007.

The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will also feature a panel discussion, with Willoughby Sharp, Dennis Oppenheim, and John Knecht, moderated by DeWitt Godfrey on October 31st at 4:30 p.m. in Golden Auditorium of Colgate's Little Hall, followed immediately by an opening reception in the Clifford Gallery.

During the last half century, the incomparable Willoughby Sharp (a.k.a. "The Mighty Mogul of The International Art World") has enjoyed an ebullient, multifarious and exceptional career. A conceptually-based, multimedia, performative artist, Mr. Sharp's cultural contributions have also focused on print and electronic publishing including the seminal Avalanche magazine (1970-76); The Computerized Arts Network (1978-79); and, most recently, Tele-Presence: Interactive Web-TV (2002-2007). He has published more than one hundred articles, catalog introductions, essays, and interviews in leading art publications including Art In America, Artforum and Flash Art. The National Endowment for the Arts, NASA, The Canadian Council of the Arts,Ottowa, and The D.A.A.D, Berlin, are among the dozens of international grant-making institutions that have supported his work.

"RETROSPECTION," is the first comprehensive examination of Willoughby Sharp's career by a University Gallery. The works in the Clifford Gallery include, among others, Sharp's 1970s "Videoviews" with artists Joseph Beuys, Vito Acconci, and Chris Burden, collaborative pieces created with Pamela Seymour Smith from archival photographs of Sharp's closed-circuit videoperformances in the 1970s, and "Saskia's Suite" a series of 10 autobiographical drawings dedicated to Sharp's daughter, Saskia Sharp.

Especially for this exhibition, Mr. Sharp and his long-time collaborator, Duff Schweninger have made a 6-foot long commemorative computer-graphic of Send/Receive's "Two-Way Demo" (1977).

In addition, the artist will be re-creating two seminal site-specific, "elemental" works from his early career, "Ice" (1967) on the Wesson Terrace of the Case Geyer Library and Center for Information Technology and "Air" (1967) on the surface of Colgate's Taylor Lake.

The Clifford Gallery is open from 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. weekdays, and from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. on weekends

AUNTS invited 15 artists to perform in the first event; these artists were responsible for each selecting an artist to represent them in the next event; those artists selected were responsible for the line- up of third event, and so forth. The evening is the typical, over- stimulated AUNTS style where multiple performances of varying mediums may be happening simultaneously; everyone can social dance.

EAI is pleased to offer, during the Performa07 performance biennial, Performance on Demand: EAI Viewing Room at EFA Gallery. EFA Gallery will be transformed into a video lounge to host Electronic Arts Intermix's Viewing Room, a program that provides free public access to one of the foremost collections of video art in the world. Visitors to EFA Gallery will be able to choose from a curated selection of major performance-based video works by over 30 artists from the EAI Collection. Viewers may watch these seminal performances and contemporary classics at their own pace in a comfortable viewing environment. During the opening reception on Friday, November 2nd, programs featuring selected works will be installed throughout the gallery.

Video has been a vital tool for artists working in performance since the late 1960s. The history of performance art and the history of video have become inseparable. Through video, artists can capture the fleeting and ephemeral, preserving unrepeatable actions as electronic moving images, and audiences that could not be present in the flesh are able to access the rich and dynamic history of performance.

The works available for viewing at EFA Gallery will include rarely-seen video documentation of ground-breaking performances by artists including Chris Burden, Dan Graham, and Carolee Schneemann; extraordinary videos in which performance was carefully crafted for the camera by artists such as Vito Acconci, Eleanor Antin, Joan Jonas, Martha Rosler and William Wegman; conceptual masterpieces by John Baldessari, Bruce Nauman, and Lawrence Weiner; as well as important works by many other key artists who have explored the profound consequences of combining performance and video.

Organized by Josh Kline.

17. Toni Dove, FF Alumn, at The Wexner Center, Columbus, OH, Nov 1-3, and more

Spectropia by Toni Dove

"Dove aims to intensify the cinematographic experience and to link together observer and character in a radically new way."
– Sabine Himmelsbach, “The Cinematic Imaginary after Film,” ZKM/Center for Art and Media, Germany

Live performers orchestrate onscreen characters through an original mix of film, live theater, and Toni Dove’s unique system of motion sensing technology that serves as a cinematic “instrument” creating a narrative form that is part video game, part feature film, and part VJ mashing. Dove will be performing with R. Luke DuBois, the project software designer.

Spectropia, a young woman, lives in the salvage district of an urban center of the future, a black market hub of retro object barter. Using a machine of her own invention to search the past for her father (lost in time looking for a vanished family inheritance), Spectropia is accidentally transported to NYC in 1931 when her machine short circuits and she finds herself in the body of another woman - Verna de Mott - an amateur sleuth.

Spectropia has received grants from the Greenwall Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Langlois Foundation, and the LEF Foundation. LMCC was Spectropia’s fiscal agent. REDCAT, CalArts, provided a 10-day residency (August 2007) to work with production and design personnel to build the stage instrument for Spectropia.

Premiere: The Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus Ohio, November 1-3, 8pm, www.wexarts.org

REDCAT, Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater, Los Angeles, November 9&10, 8:30pm, www.redcat.org


18. Joshua Fried, FF Alumn, at Lucky Cheng’s, Manhattan, TONIGHT, and more

RADIO WONDERLAND -- my experimental groove-based solo 'band' -- is on
*tonight* (Monday the 29th) in Manhattan, both solo and as part of a brand new trio. I'll be playing with two great musicians: Hans Tammen on his endangered guitar and Tom Shad on bass. (Shhh! if you miss tonight, our official debut as a trio happens next week in Manhattan; see below.) And right here is our official hype courtesy of Rebus PR:

"The newest entry into the technologically-enhanced extended improv sweepstakes is the trio of virtuosic veterans Hans Tammen-- "endangered guitar", Tom Shad--Blue Man bassist, and Joshua Fried--AKA "Radio Wonderland" on his shoes, steering wheel and laptop. What sets these guys apart is the engagement of the body as well as the ear and the mind (read: they know how to groove). Expect the most current sonic DSP (that's digital signal processing in case you missed it), as well as muscular jams that fly Jimi and Miles into the heart of NYC's vortex of alt-jazz techno jams."

Tom Swirly presents:

The Illusion of Maya:
an avant-garde talk show and variety act.
featuring Maya Sky
with Tom Swirly playing himself

"Under Maya's influence, the soul mistakenly identifies with the body"
