1. Nicolas Dumit Estevez, FF Alumn, receives Printed Matter Award

AWARDS FOR ARTISTS

Award Winners Announced

Printed Matter Awards $25,000 to Artists!

Printed Matter is pleased to announce the winners of our first annual Awards for Artists. Made possible by a generous gift from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Awards for Artists provides aid to artists who make books in a climate that is particularly difficult for artists.

Awards for Artists is adjudicated through a peer group process: Printed Matter invited twenty artists to nominate up to five artists each for the award. From the 63 finalists, a jury of three artists—Geoff Hendricks, Robin Kahn, and Paul Mpagi Sepuya—chose the following ten artists to receive an award of $2,500 each:

Osa Atoe (New Orleans, LA)
Heather Benjamin (Basking Ridge, NJ)
Nicholas Dumit Estevez (Bronx, NY)
Edie Fake (Baltimore, MD)
Eve Fowler (Los Angeles, CA)
Chitra Ganesh (Brooklyn, NY)
K8 Hardy (Brooklyn, NY)
Arnold Kemp (Brooklyn, NY)
Julio Cesar Morales (San Francisco, CA)
Carlo Quispe (New York, NY)

Printed Matter will present an exhibition of the award winners in September, 2009.

Printed Matter thanks the 20 nominators and the 63 finalists for their work on the project: the material we received, much of it from artists we did not previously know of, was of an astonishingly high quality.

Printed Matter staff and their families are not eligible to nominate or be nominated, nor may they sit on the jury for these awards. Nominees are chosen through a closed process; we do not accept unsolicited applications.

3. Barbara Rosenthal, FF Alumn, at Z-Bar, Berlin, Germany, June 25

PROGRAM NOTES
By Klaus W. Eisenlohr
Barbara Rosenthal – 33 existential videos
Thursday, 25 June 2009
21:00 Uhr
Z-Bar
Bergstraße 2
10115 Berlin-Mitte
Barbara Rosenthal

Humorous conceptual poetry-and-performance shorts

Including World Premiere of “Dead Heat”

Barbara Rosenthal’s work, on one hand many-fold and widespread over media such as performance, artists’ books, photography, installations and video, on the other hand shows continued commitment and thematic consistency over several decades. If you need proof that art can be genuinely political, even if the artist does not calling themself a “political activist”, or possibly even moreso because they do not, then look at Rosenthal’s work. The collection of her video work over 30 years, a part of which will be presented at Directors Lounge, may possibly be best compared with a witty book of aphorisms. It’s altogether irresistible, it’s thoughtful, and it’s funny, absurd, and at the same time, serious, absolutely. And that’s what she wants to be taken for.

You may find Dada, Surrealism or Fluxus in her work, all of which have been overdone and overused by contemporary artists. However, if you tried to interpret her that way, you would still not come to terms with Barbara Rosenthal’s work. And if we have a closer look, there may be one strategy (of many) we can recognize: Very often, another artist finds ideas, or encounters situations, and takes them just too literally, but by these and other techniques, daily life and its absurdities, as mirrored in this artist’s work, become an arena for thoughts revealing truth (yes!), and the negative consequences of abstractedness in life and politics.

Barbara Rosenthal demands close attention and precise reception from her audience, those who like to follow her track of thoughts and perceptions. Her humour never transmits sarcasm; rather, it is as gentle as the jokes we know from those Zen Masters quizzing their favourite pupil. For example, in “How Much Does The Monkey Count” that is all they do: Barbara and the monkey she ventriloquizes compete by counting numbers. Or like, when the absurdity of reading the listings of societies from the New York City phonebook turns into a critical statement without her adding anything to it. Or, in another example, when the artist is whispering “forbidden” secrets about a sexual attraction, which reveal less of herself but of the repressing side of political (and sexual) correctness. 

The screening will almost be a retrospective as it shows a range of the artist’s earliest (nicely digitally re-mastered) and most recent work. Having said all that, we are happy that Barbara Rosenthal is coming to Berlin exclusively for this screening. And she will be available to the audience, for questions and answers, or at least more thought-nourishing quizzes.

(Klaus W. Eisenlohr, Curator, Berlin Directors Lounge)

LA Poverty Department's performance in Bolivia questions the "War on Drugs"
July 11 - Aug. 24: LOS ANGELES POVERTY DEPARTMENT performs AGENTS & ASSETS in BOLIVIA

At a time when the Obama administration has renounced the "war on drugs" rhetoric, making a major shift in policy by acknowledging the U.S.'s culpability in the international drug trade, the Los Angeles Poverty Department (LAPD) is embarking on a Bolivian tour for the Spanish language premiere of AGENTS & ASSETS. The project brings together victims of the "War On Drugs' in Bolivia and the U.S., people who have experienced first hand damage to their communities, their families, themselves.

LAPD will be in residence in Cochabamba, Bolivia to rehearse the performance with a combined cast of LAPD'ers and Bolivianos.  AGENTS & ASSETS will be performed in Cochabamba, Potosi, Oruro, La Paz, El Alto, Sucre and Santa Cruz from Aug. 2 till Aug. 24. Each performance will be followed by a community conversation.

For more information about the project and a Spanish and English press release visit our website: www.lapovertydept.org

This production of AGENTS & ASSETS is made possible through support of the National Performance Network and the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.

Resisting "the easy and superficial descriptions..., Moore's work challenges the consensus view more strongly in ways less acceptable than...angry tirades and bitter attacks on consumer culture." Chicago New City

"If performance art has a radical edge, it has to be Frank Moore." Cleveland Edition

"Transformative..." Moore "is thwarting nature in an astonishing manner, and is fusing art, ritual and religion in ways the Eurocentric world has only dim memories of. Espousing a kind of paganism without bite and aggression, Frank Moore is indeed worth watching." High Performance Magazine

10. Irina Danilova, FF Alumn, at National Center for Contemporary Art, Moscow, Russia

Dear Friends,

My videoinstallation "59 Feet Under" will be open tomorrow at 19:00,

in National Center for Contemporary Art in Moscow

13 Zoologicheskaya Street.

Kurator: Karina Karaeva

If you or anyone you know is in Moscow, please welcome and pass it along.

The video installation “59 Feet Under” at National Center for Contemporary Art in Moscow  is a presentation of Irina Danilova’s performance that was realized on December 25th, 1998.  Without any training (with help of two scuba divers) Irina got down to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean where it was 59’ feet deep, off the coast of Maine.

In 1995, at the beginning of "digital era" Irina Danilova started the universal digital Project 59 where a random number is used as a tool for artistic approach.

Project 59 started with series of endurance performances that emphasized human deeds (disregarding motivations).

Climbing 59 Floors, diving 59 feet under the sea or flying 5900 feet above it, walking to the intersection of 59th longitude with 59th latitude – in all those works (1995-1999) Irina was exploring,  in her own way, surrounding environment  –  land, air, ocean  and Manhattan.

12. Holly Faurot & Sarah H. Paulson, FF Members, at Grace Exhibition Space, Brooklyn, July 3

"Rotten Metal Achievers"
Performance by: Holly Faurot & Sarah H. Paulson (www.faurotpaulson.com) in collaboration with Daniel Bainbridge

Music by: Joel Mellin / John Bundy & Ryan Hamilton (members of Naam)

Friday, July 3, 2009 / 7pm – midnight

Grace Exhibition Space
840 Broadway, 2nd Floor
Brooklyn, NY 11206
646-578-3402 / www.grace-exhibition-space.com

Performers: Daniel Bainbridge, Dennis Faurot, Holly Faurot, Kaitie Fitzgerald, Molly Fitzgerald, Erin Lee Jones, Sarah H. Paulson, and others 

Video Appearance: Laura Barnard 

Grace Exhibition Space presents Holly Faurot & Sarah H. Paulson’s, "Rotten Metal Achievers," a 5-hour performance of choreographed simultaneous happenings that document how one experiences a constant state of growth and decay. The longtime collaborative duo has joined forces with performance artist Daniel Bainbridge who will introduce the character of Monkey Mop Boy during a 1-hour interlude beginning at 9pm.

While Faurot & Paulson rotate on dirt covered limestone slabs, Faurot’s father, Dennis Faurot enters and exits the space, while holding a photograph of Bainbridge’s Monkey Mop Boy.  Other performers, dancers and non-dancers, take cues from a video of a woman (Laura Barnard) carrying out movements at the edge of a pond.

While standing waist-high in water, she instructs and teaches in the rain.

Together, the three artists cross and re-cross individual finish lines throughout "Rotten Metal Achievers."  They are champions while enduring their footing in piles of dirt. Tests of endurance, precision, and concentration are subtle roadblocks that exist throughout the piece.

"Rotten Metal Achievers" will feature music by Joel Mellin

(www.joelmellin.com).   Mellin, who has composed music for Faurot &

Paulson’s work since 2002, will present algorithmically generated and scored computer music with live steel and metal input and accompaniment. John Bundy and Ryan Hamilton, members of the band Naam (www.myspace.com/naamdestroysfaces), will perform a live drone sequence during the final hour (11pm-midnight).

Rotten Metal Achievers is part of Grace Exhibition Space’s contribution to the 2009 Bushwick Biennial.  Please visit www.bushwickbiennial.com for more information.

*Daniel Bainbridge reflects the following about Monkey Mop Boy:

There are still a couple of strips of duct tape stuck to Boy's head that were originally used to attach a plastic bag filled with a bit of paint. The bag is gone, but his hand is still miming the gesture.

The "huffing" bag is gone... now his gesture implies "blowing." There is a connection between this sexual connotation and the "hand-to- mouth" economic situation. Addicts (of the child paint "huffer") and hookers are close cousins to victims of economic slavery. The big red lips ready to suck... blood suckers, parasites, paint huffers? The eyes are closed... but he has such cute, long eye lashes (taken from the same fake hide of the monkey). Is the monkey a cute little guy that you want to hold and feed from a white milk bottle? Or is the monkey at the end of a stick (at the end of the line). No, I think that the boy's relationship to the monkey mop is kind of innocent.

Boy's eyes are closed. He is not asleep. He is not blinking. He is shutting it out. He is imagining something. Maybe he is watching a dreamscape. When I read over the poem you wrote, "... virgin's leg and ass spit small belly feathers; get inhaled by the race horses. No cheeta gets clemency. Out of the foggy gully emerges a golden lair,"

I find myself in that place between worlds; the creative unconscious, the place that makes us human. The Boy is a whore; but he is enigmatic like Cinderella or St. Therese. He is pathetic but the boy is experiencing a transfiguring state, a window into which he catches a glimpse of ecstasy. There is something extraordinary about him. The Boy is wearing bright pink pants and a forest green turtleneck.

The Boy has a job to do; he is a worker. He is caught in a strange surreal underworld. The monkey mop does two things: 1. It is creepy and absurd, provoking questions about the relationship between animals and humans. 2. It is a humorous invention meant to bring the "fun" back into cleaning. Novelty mops are items purchased by parents for their children. Having to clean would no longer be a form of punishment. This idea reminds me of Tom Sawyer painting the fence.

Why do we only see those sexy French maid outfits on Halloween? Why do I always picture Communists in grey jumpsuits? I need the colorful, dysfunctional melting pot of America.

Surrogate lover in the form of a fake white seal; its outer fur is coarse like fine steel wool; the inner stuffing is creamy like artificial cotton balls. The mind must make up for the deficiency.

The imagination and repetitive motions bring forth the coiled serpent of the seven circles. The partnership pings and pongs the feathered birdie back and forth, over/above the net. Sweat trickles down and the breath becomes heavy. The intensity in the eyes beam the headlights of hunger… traveling through the tunnel, towards the secret trigger. Now we are both together... scissoring our heads together... the many hands become one. I swallowed your world... and it came to me in a dozen white millipedes. When I pulled them out I was relieved and the worms were fine... until my brother flipped one on its back... the scream was of a wind-up machine. Their little legs didn't hurt my throat. You inspire me. Who am I now?

16. Liliana Porter, FF Alumn, at Hosfelt Gallery, Manhattan, June 25-27

Hosfelt Gallery is pleased to present the U.S. premiere of Liliana Porter’s most recent video Matinee/Matiné with screenings at our New York gallery on Thursday, June 25 at 7pm and Saturday, June 27 at 2 and 4pm.

*Following the screening on June 25, Porter will have a conversation about her work with Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro, Director of the ColecciónPatricia Phelps de Cisneros.

Drawn from an extensive collection of vintage knickknacks, toys, and souvenirs, Porter’s “characters” (with occasional help from a human hand) “act” in a succession of seemingly unrelated vignettes that together comprise a poetic vision of the human condition. Incongruities between image and music trigger unexpected political,philosophical and existential interpretations.

Matinee/Matiné is Porter’s fourth video work. As in each of the prior videos, the haunting and beautiful soundtrack is an original scorecomposed and performed by Sylvia Meyer.

Liliana Porter was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and has lived in New York since 1964.  Her work has been exhibited extensively internationally.  It is currently the subject of a major survey exhibition at the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City. Within the past year, her work was included in New York Graphic Workshop: 1964-1970 at the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, Texas; Here Is Every. Four Decades of Contemporary Art at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Sharjah Biennial, United Arab Emirates; she had solo gallery exhibitions in New York, Boston and Buenos Aires; and she completed a commission from the Dia Art Foundation for an interactive web project, Rehearsal, which can be viewed at http://www.diabeacon.org/porter/.

Her work is in numerous public and private collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum, New York; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Smithsonian Museum of American Art; Daros-Latinamerica Collection, Zurich; and Tate Modern, London.

Sylvia Meyer was born in Uruguay. She lives and works in New York.She studied composition, conducting, piano and oboe at the Conservatorio Universitario de Montevideo. She has composed more than 100 original pieces for theater and film and composed and performed the music for all of Liliana's Porter videos: For You (1999), Drum Solo (2000), Fox in the Mirror (2007) and Matinee (2009).  In 2007,she exhibited a sound piece in the 6th Mercosur Biennial.

Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro is Director of the Colección Patricia Phelpsde Cisneros, New York and Caracas.  From 2002 to 2007 he was Curator of Latin American Art at the Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin.  Prior to that he was Director of Visual Arts at TheAmericas Society, New York, Exhibitions and Projects Coordinator at the Casa de América, Madrid, and Founding Curator of the University of Essex Collection of Latin American Art in Colchester, England.  He holds a PhD in Art History and Theory from the University of Essex, and an MA in Latin American Studies and Art History from theUniversity of Aberdeen. In 2007 he was chief curator of the 6th Mercosul Biennial in Porto Alegre, Brazil.  His 2007 exhibition The Geometry of Hope was awarded “Best Thematic Museum Show Nationally”by the US Chapter of the International Association of Art Critics.

Hosfelt Gallery, New York is located at 531 W. 36th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues. For more information, call 212.563.5454 or visit www.hosfeltgallery.com.
