Sibio’s career has spanned 32 years where she has been working in the alternative contemporary arts community. For the past ten years she has been concentrating on painting. Her dealer representative is Andrew Edlin of the Andrew Edlin Gallery. He has taken her work to Brussels, Belgium and is going to Paris in April. Mr. Edlin has also shown Sibio’s work alongside the famed Henry Darger.

Participants and visitors are advised to respect the following rules*
It is necessary to listen to others if one wants to have their attention
Above all things and upon all occasions, avoid speaking of yourself
Being over confident and peremptory does very much unfit men for conversation
Avoid too excessive pedantic or technical speech (like direct interrogation, the use of imperatives and short answers such as ‘Yes’ and above all ‘No’)
Adapt your conversation to the people you are conversing with
Honourable people must never use a low word in their speech
Subjects to avoid for men: ‘hunting, hawking and the War of the Netherlands; for women: fashionable clothes and housewifery. In general avoid talking about one’s children, telling one’s dreams or boasting of one’s nobility or riches.
It is a great fault to be too fond of keeping silent
don’t talk when you eat, it makes people think you are not enjoying the food
It is better to be a men of few words than a ciarlatore
No one speaks to the king during his public meals unless he addresses him first

And of course:
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof must one be silent

4. Barbara Bloom, FF Alumn, at Dia Art Foundation, Manhattan, June 26

Half Full - Half Empty, a web project by Barbara Bloom, launches June 26th
Opening Reception Thursday, June 26, 2008 from 6-8pm in New York City
Dia Art Foundation
535 West 22nd Street, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10011
212 989 5566
launch event: Thursday June 26, 2008, 6-8pm
Reminiscent of several of Bloom's favorite forms-still life painting, the radio play, and the Nouveau Roman of the 1950's-Half Full - Half Empty is a still life that does not remain still: a close up of a table, ordinary yet referring to still life painting. A book, keys, ball, paper, grapes, wine glasses, a gift, and a candle are also visible. These almost still objects have movement in time without any visible agency. On an accompanying soundtrack a dialogue between a male and a female voice is encountered in the form of three parallel running versions of a conversation: Present (two adults,) Future (two old people,) or Past (two children).

In the absence of any visible human hand, the objects on the table that would typically serve as clues or signifiers, as illustrators of the narrative, take on a more central role as conveyors of meaning. The protagonists of the work are the grapes that disappear, the teacup that fills and spills, the candle that lights and later blows out, the glasses that reflect the room where the conversation takes place. The common subjects for what is visible and audible are memory and the passage of time.�
As in much of Bloom's work, absence and inference play a central role.� She has come to refer to her works as Visual Innuendo, and has often quoted a saying that goes: "A drink before, and a cigarette after, are the three best things in life."�����

Barbara Bloom was born in Los Angeles in 1951; she studied at Bennington College, and with John Baldessari at the California Institute of the Arts. For many years she lived and worked in Amsterdam and Berlin before returning to the United States in the mid 1990s. She has exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the MAK, Vienna; the Serpentine Gallery, London and other international venues, including the Venice Biennale (1988) where she received the Due Mille Award. She is the recipient of awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Wexner Center for the Arts, and the Getty Research Institute.

The Collections of Barbara Bloom, a major survey of her work, was presented in early 2008 at the International Center of Photography in New York City, and will travel in late summer to the Martin-Gropius-Bau. Berlin. A book of the same title has been published by Steidl Verlag, She currently lives and works in New York City.
Dia initiated a series of web-based works in early 1995, becoming one of the first arts organizations to foster the use of the world wide web as an artistic and conceptual medium. Dia's collection of web projects currently numbers twenty-seven. Previous projects include Rosa Barba's Vertiginous Mapping (2008); Ezra Johnson's Wrestling with the Blob Beast (2008); Wilfredo Prieto's A Moment of Silence (2007); Maja Bajevic's I Wish I was Born in a Hollywood Movie (2006); Dorothy Cross's Foxglove: digitalis purpurea (2005); Ana Torfs' Approximations/Contradictions (2004); Allen Ruppersberg's The New Five Foot Shelf (2004); Glenn Ligon's Annotations (2003); and Shimabuku's Moon Rabbit (2001), among others.

About GlogauAIR
is a non profit organization founded with the intention of creating a meeting point between different artistic disciplines. Based in the Kreuzberg quarter of Berlin, the Artist in Residence Programme is its principal activity.

The main aim of the program is to create a dynamic of work and coexistence between artists from diverse social and geographical backgrounds, encouraging an exchange of ideas and an internationalization of their individual projects. Another goal is to stimulate a dialogue between the artists and city—a place where art professionals and the public are engaged in a constant debate. The residence periods are complemented with exhibitions and lectures by the resident artists as well as other informal activities such as concerts, video art projections, meals, etc.


9. Gabriel Martinez, FF Alumn, in Dominican Republic, thru June 23

Gabriel Martinez participates in “ART OF UNCERTAINTY - SANTO DOMINGO ’08”
Curated by Charo Oquet and David Vardi and organized by Edge Zones Contemporary Art Space Miami, AoU will bring together representatives of different disciplines such as: painting, sculpture, video, performance, drawing, printmaking and sound arts to explore the theme that emerges from the challenges of uprooting and relocating to a new country, the pains of immigrant dreams and realities and what happens to the life of loved ones left behind. Issues of uncertainty and migration will be used as a framework for artists to explore the suffering and disruption of lives, lose of place and the surrounding of new social behaviors and codes. Artists will be working independent of each other to reference issues of uncertainty and migration as it relates to immigration in the 21st century. The project will culminate in an interdisciplinary exhibition throughout Santo Domingo and will also feature individual lectures from scholars, performance art and artistic interventions and experimental curatorial projects.
The works will be on view at the Museum of Modern Art of Santo Domingo, Quinta Dominica, Ceramic Museum and the Spanish Cultural Art Center of Santo Domingo as well as other sites in the city of Constanza, from June 15 – 23, 2008.


10. Tobaron Waxman, FF Alumn, at The Project, Manhattan, opening June 26

The Project, NYC
The Left Hand of Darkness
June 26 – August 15, 2008
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 26th, 6-8 pm

Participating artists:
Michael Bilsborough, C.R.E.E.,P. (Diva Pittala and Adrian Cowen),
Matt Greene, Paul Kopkau, Sarah Lucas,Tara Mateik, Slava Mogutin,
Michael Portnoy, Tracey Rose, Tobaron Waxman.

"In a photograph by Tobaron Waxman, the artist is the protagonist in a rapturous scene that references Chagall's crucifixion paintings and the primordial homoerotic scene of the Holy Lance with a new Queer iconography. Peytach Eynayim, a name implicating God as site, means
"(the place of) Open Eyes" in Hebrew, i.e. Truth in space-time.
This references the crossroads where Tamar waits for Judah in this biblical story about love, prostitution, revelation, and gendered sexual agency."

The Left Hand of Darkness, a group exhibition curated by Sarvia Jasso and Yasmine Dubois, borrows the title of the first feminist science fiction novel written by Ursula K. Le Guin in 1969. Set in a universe where individuals alternate between genders depending on the lunar cycle, the novel proposes an alternative social model that challenges traditional sexual dimorphism. After being transported from aheteronormative society to this new planet, the narrator states, "[…] my efforts took the form of self-consciously seeing a Gathenian first as a man then as a woman, forcing him into those
categories so irrelevant to his nature and so essential to my own."
During this journey, he is immersed in a world that redefines gender and sexual identities as we know them. Using the novel as a point of departure, the exhibition looks at artists who are playing with the dynamics of gender representation within a contemporary context.

14. Patty Chang, Laura Parnes, Barbara Pollack, FF Alumns, at Sara Meltzer Gallery, Manhattan, June 25

All in the Family
A screening organized by Laura Parnes
Wednesday June 25th, 8:30PM sharp

Through role-playing or using actual family members in their videos, the artist's in All in the Family explore the dynamics of the family as an institution.
Artists include: Peggy Ahwesh, Patty Chang, Eteam, Rico Gatson, Liselot van der Heijden, Lovett/Codagnone, Kristin Lucas, Guy Ben Ner, Laura Parnes, Shannon Plumb, Barbara Pollack, Martynka Wawrzyniak

Barbara Pollack, Game Boy, 1996/2001, 5:00 min.
This video gives the "subject" (the son) the opportunity to talk back to the "director" (the mother). Max (8 years old at the time) is filmed while he grows increasingly agitated about the director's intent to film him for a video project. By revealing behavior that is usually left out of home movies, this video interrogates all movies made by parents to "record" and "preserve" family moments.

Peggy Ahwesh, Martina's Playhouse, 1989
Super-8 to video, 20:00 min. Featuring Martina Torr and Jennifer Montgomery.
"In Martina's Playhouse, everything is up for grabs. The little girl of the title oscillates from narrator to reader to performer and from the role of baby to that of mother. While the roles she adopts may be learned, they are not set, and she moves easily between them. Similarly, in filmmaker Peggy Ahwesh's playhouse of encounters with friends, objects aren't merely objects but shift between layers of meaning. Men are conspicuously absent, a lack' reversing of the Lacanian/Freudian constructions of women as Ahwesh plays with other possibilities."
--Kathy Geritz, program notes (Berkeley: Pacific Film Archive, 1990)

Shannon Plumb from the Black and White Series, 4 min.
Black and White revisits the eponymous format of film and creates a circular dialogue within the history of video art, incorporating and updating previous conventions. Inspired by artists that explore themes of gender and the notion of performance, Plumb uses personal significant events as inspiration, capturing a sense of nostalgia. The unplanned instances and ambient sounds are incorporated in the film, and the viewer is included in the joke. Plumb subverts the medium by presenting a humorous combination of character and self at once. Reality is rendered with fantasy.

Liselot van der Heijden, Predators and Prey, 2008, 2:00 min.
Wildlife documentaries reveal more about human beings, culture and dominant ideology than about nature itself. Completely removed from their “real place,” the electronic images of animals are used in a spectacular and melodramatic narrative to explain, justify and naturalize capitalist ideology and war.

Martynka Wawrzyniak, ME, 2007, 2:50 min.
In ME, four children reflect on issues they will encounter in their adulthood. They respond to questions such as "What makes you feel sad? How do you imagine yourself as a grown up?" and "Who is God?"

Rico Gatson, Media Center (Powers, Forces, Meditation), 2003, video, 4:00 min.
Media Center is a meditation on war, life and death. The video was produced directly after the start of the Iraq war and the birth of the artist's daughter. It progresses through rapid flashes of imagery extracted from the internet inter-cut with personal footage.

Laura Parnes, Untitled (for Technically Sweet), 2008, video, 2:30 min.
Under the residual glow of Hiroshima and Nagasaki lies something even more terrifying: the natural world and its utter indifference. This two-channel video pits catalogue-perfect natural settings with the potential for environmental devastation.

Guy Ben-Ner, Moby Dick, 2000, video, 12:00 min.
Guy "re-enacts" Moby Dick in his kitchen and living room with his children.

Patty Chang, In Love, 2001, video, 3:28 min.
In this dual-channel video, both images show the artist's and respective parent's faces pressed together in what at first appears to be a deep kiss. Gradually, it becomes evident that the video is running in reverse time, and that they share not a kiss but rather an onion from which they both eat. Parent and child swallow before they take additional bites, blinking hard to hold back tears from the onion’s sharpness and pungency. However, in the video's reversal of time, the onion is reconstituted and the tears disappear—wholeness is thus regained.

Lovett/Codganone, <<PLAY>>, 2000, video, 10:26 min.
<<PLAY>> takes the final scene of the film Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? as a point of departure. George and Martha are played by various configurations of the
two artists and their parents. Performed by non-actors who share real-life intimacy, this appropriation of theatrical fall-out reflects on the performative identities and scripted communication that comprise patterns of interaction and dysfunction within family structures.

Kristin Lucas, Smaller and Easier to Handle, 2003, video, 7:28 min.
This incisive take on techno-culture presents a hallucinatory set-piece in which a nuclear family assumes the roles of a mutant operating theater with surgeon, assistants, and a half-human, half-animal patient. Employing outrageous costumes, surveillance footage, and a propulsive soundtrack, Lucas crafts a spooky parable for our fast-forward society.

Eteam, the paradox of the 10 acres square, chapter elevated transportation, 2006, 7:30 min.
Suspension bridge, walking bridge, draw bridge, overpass, log bridge, forth rail bridge, container elevator, moveable bridge, failed bridge. The most common way to overcome a distance without touching the ground is flying or jumping, depending on the length of travel. Only in the case of the bridge is the ground elevated and allows for travel through the air on the ground. The criteria for some of these bridges, their engineering and their shape is examined and tested in chapter-elevated transportation.
