2. Anna Banana, FF Alumn, at Sunshine Coast Art Center, British Columbia, Canada, Feb. 20

You are cordially invited to celebrate
my 70 years of creative living
by collaborating with me on an
ART DETOX TEA PARTY
Saturday, February 20, 2010 from 1-4 pm in the
Art Room, Sunshine Coast Art Center, Sechelt.

This event is inspired by the announcement of "ART DETOX 2010/year of artistic detoxification" by Italian mail-artist Vittore Baroni. This event is in the tradition of decentralized mail-art congresses that began in 1986, repeated in 1992, 1998, 2004. It’s time for another event.

The ART DETOX TEA PARTY here on the Sunshine Coast
is to be a symbolic purge of works that didn’t quite "make the cut." For this, I’m asking you to donate an "unsuccessful" piece of your work for ceremonial deconstruction & reconstitution, in the service of clearing clogged ART-erys, making room for a "second coming" of free wheeling creative work. For those who can’t bear to part, even with a less than perfect piece of work, a colour photo copy can be substituted, but be aware that the blessings from the Goddess of Creativity may be lesser than those given for original works.

As hostess and organizer of this event, I will act on behalf of the Goddess, and ask all who participate to do so in the spirit of playful cooperation/collaboration. The event will include:

a welcome and opening statement
a chorus/chant (Out, out damn spot? or scripts you contribute -ahead of time please)
a procession with the sacrificial lambs (donated works) held on high for all to see,
paraded around the room, then placed on the altar.
a blessing (from God the mother, God the daughter and God the holy host) on both the donated works and the donors
deconstruction: each artist will render (tear, smash, cut, deface) their sacrificial lamb
into enough pieces so all participants can have at least one piece of each for their . reconstitution; participants circulate around the "altar," choose pieces of the
deconstructed works for a new composition, using glue, staples, tape, paint, crayons
etc. (please bring your own materials/equipment)
on completion of the reconstituted works, tea, coffee and cake will be served,
Certificates of Detoxification presented.

Photo documentation of this event will be posted on the artdetox web site (http://artdetox2010.ning.com) during 2010 , so please bring your cameras and share your resulting photos/videos with me.

11. Paul Henry Ramirez, FF Alumn, at The Newark Museum, NJ, March 5, and more

Dear Friends,

I hope you'll have a chance to see my installation BLACKOUT, Newark’s Museum’s fourth and final Centennial Commission and Zero Point Zero, an original dance performance that will be presented within my installation in the Charles Engelhard Court on March 5, 2010 at 6-8:30 pm. The performance marks the second collaboration between choreographer Debra J. Fernandez and myself. Overall, the performance will reveal my on-going interest to push the medium of painting into new dimensions through collaborations with other artists and art forms—in this case music and dance. I look forward to seeing you.

Cheers,

Paul

BLACKOUT: A Centennial Commission by Paul Henry Ramirez
>From March 17, 2010 to May 23, 2010

BLACKOUT: A Centennial Commission by Paul Henry Ramirez is a major site-specific installation that allows viewers to experience painting as an environment that one can enter. Using the Museum’s Charles Engelhard Court as his canvas, renowned artist Paul Henry Ramirez employs his signature curvaceous biomorphic forms amidst a profusion of pop-inspired colors in dialogue with the Court’s distinctive Beaux-Arts architecture. Dynamic rounded black forms and fine lines that spill and shift against the adjacent walls further animate the space, as do three geometrically inspired paintings that suggest bodies pushing against each other and through space. By including these and other elements that celebrate the human form and thrive on contemporary popular culture, Ramirez creates an immersive environment that pushes the boundaries of how we define and experience painting.

Organized by E. Carmen Ramos, Guest Curator, BLACKOUT is the fourth and final commissioned project initiated to celebrate the Museum’s Centennial year. It coincides and dialogues with the major Centennial exhibition, Constructive Spirit: Abstract Art in South and North America, 1920s-50s, which examines the connections among abstract artists from the United States and South America.

Dance Performance: Zero Point Zero
Friday, March 5, 6-8:30 pm, FREE
gallery viewing: 6-7 pm, performance: 7-7:30 pm, wine reception: 7:30-8:30 pm
Choreographer Debra J. Fernandez creates a dialogue in dance with the exhibition BLACKOUT. This second collaboration for Fernandez and Ramirez features dynamic sound and movement designed to activate Ramirez’s installation, with original music by So Takahashi and Carl Landa, and costumes by Kim Vanyo.

Centennial Conversation
Panel Discussion: Abstract Art—A Living Legacy
Wednesday, April 28, 6-8 pm
coffee reception: 6-7 pm, program: 7-8 pm
Pre-registration required; call 973.596.6550.
Matthew Deleget will moderate a discussion with an international group of contemporary artists including Lenora de Barros, Paul Henry Ramirez and Don Voisine. The artists will talk about the legacy of constructivist abstract art as it relates to their work and explore why abstraction continues to be a vital mode of expression.

12. Jaroslav Andel, Michel Auder, Robert Mapplethorpe, Andy Warhol, FF Alumns, exhibition catalogue release party, Anthology Film Archives, Feb. 23

Anthology Film Archives, February 23, 7:30 - 9:30 pm
Exhibition Catalog Reception
Chelsea Hotel: Ghosts of Bohemia. Harry Smith, Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, Jonas Mekas, Michel Auder. Edited by Jaroslav Anděl. With texts by Jaroslav Anděl, Victor Bockris, Jonas Mekas and Sherill Tippins. Prague: DOX Centre for Contemporary Art, December 2009.

Introduced by Jonas Mekas and Jaroslav Anděl, the reception is a tribute to the work of Harry Smith. Co-organized with the Czech Center, New York.

CHELSEA HOTEL: GHOSTS OF BOHEMIA. HARRY SMITH, ANDY WARHOL, ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE, JONAS MEKAS, MICHEL AUDER.
DOX CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY ART, PRAGUE, DECEMBER 4, 2009 - MARCH 29, 2010
Perhaps no other place epitomizes the artistic bohemia of the last century better than the Chelsea Hotel in New York. This exhibition is the first museum show on the subject. The exhibition focuses on three seminal artists associated with that legendary place - Harry Smith, Andy Warhol and Robert Mapplethorpe - to explore the changing notions of bohemia from the 1950s to the '80s. By comparing Smith, Warhol and Mapplethorpe, as well as two other artists, Jonas Mekas and Michel Auder, a complex picture emerges, revealing differing notions of bohemia's "otherness" as well as bohemia's trajectory in the second half of the 20th century. The exhibition highlights the crucial role of bohemia in modern culture and asks what is its meaning today, when we may be witnessing the demise of bohemianism? Or is it just a fundamental transformation?

13. New bilingual art encyclopedia now online at www.ArtSpeakChina.org

ArtSpeak China, www.ArtSpeakChina.org, the first bilingual, online encyclopedia about contemporary Chinese art now online!

ArtSpeak China (ASC), the first bilingual, collaboratively-authored guide to contemporary Chinese art is now online at www.ArtSpeakChina.org.. According to founder Amaryllis Fox and planning directors Robert Atkins (US) and Vivian Song (China), the Wikipedia-style resource enables English- and Mandarin speakers to initiate or edit encyclopedia entries in one language and soon[RA1] [RA1] see their efforts reflected in the other.

All content will be searchable and cross-referenced via internal links, and accompanied by an illustrated timeline of historical and art events. A complementary site, ASCarchive.org, will launch later this year and feature sophisticated tools for uploading video footage, photographs, and scanned images of artifacts, and documents, creating a digital repository for previously unpublished material about contemporary Chinese art.

The need for cross-cultural conversation is "increasingly acute, despite two decades of criticism and commentary in Mandarin and English," asserts Robert Atkins, whose best-selling books about Western art such as ArtSpeak: A Guide to Contemporary Ideas, Movements and Buzzwords, helped inspire ASC.

"How can we help bring these perspectives together?" asks Fox. "Our aim is to provide Westerners with insights from previously untranslated texts, fading snapshots and unpublished diaries tucked away in the studios of Beijing's Songzhuang Village or Shanghai's Moganshan Lu."

Vivian Song, a veteran of China’s contemporary art world, agrees.: "The artists are ready to tell their stories over a cup of tea in their studio. We wanted to preserve that unwritten record, make it accessible to anyone with an interest and an internet connection."

ASC is grateful for the pro bono advice of esteemed curator Lv Peng and internationally known artist Yue Minjun. We are also grateful for the financial assistance of Studio Door China. To reach its goal of bilingual discussion ASC will soon rely entirely on volunteer translation. To learn how to volunteer, contribute information, texts, images or documents (or simply to learn more about art in China today) visit www.ArtSpeakChina.org.

14. China Blue, FF Alumn, at Univ. of Rhode Island, Kingston, opening March 1

Exhibition: Seventh Kingdom by China Blue
Location: University of Rhode Island, Main Gallery
URI Fine Arts Center
105 Upper College Road, Kingston, RI
Dates: March 1-17, 2010
Hours: Monday – Saturday 12 - 4:00PM
Opening: Monday March 1, 2010, 3:00 pm

The Seventh Kingdom is a selection of active, interactive and reactive works based on the emergence of new biological forms from the wastes of older ones. As human-created waste from manufacturing and obsolescent technology spreads through more environments and ecosystems other living things adapt to it or, more often, disappear. But as the wastes become more complex, including structural elements, electronic components and power sources a potential exists for new biogenic forms will arise in a new taxonomic class that scavenges and builds on the waste of its predecessors.

The name Seventh Kingdom is derived from classical biological taxonomy: the currently recognized taxonomic kingdoms include Animals, Plants, Fungus, Protis, Archaea and Bacteria. The Seventh Kingdom incorporates detritus ranging from structural elements such as discarded dryer vent hose, plumbing pipes, guitar strings, and anti-static bags to potentially reactive and dynamic elements such as speakers, electronic components and recycled power supplies. The Seventh Kingdom weaves together these elements into post-biological creations that both act and react to their environment.

China Blue, an internationally exhibiting artist known for her sound art installations, expands on her interest in sound in creating the "Seventh Kingdom." These new works use sound, interaction and circuitry to creating eerie, fascinating and beautiful pieces that anticipate what our future environment might look and sound like.

"Her work is real art... brilliant!" Paul Hasegawa-Overacker, Producer of "Gallery Beat," "Guest of Cindy Sherman" and writer for ArtNet

The group of four "8 Bit Crickets" consist of antiphotoreactive electronic crickets in circuit cages that sing only in the dark, growing silent in the light like their biological counterparts. These crickets create their own dark-dependent rhythmically compelling songs, entitled: "The 8 Bit Cricket Chorus."

"E-Rosa" is a light responsive, vine-like piece, fabricated from recycled anti-static bags, guitar strings, acetate and electronic circuits. When their self-contained lumination turns on, the vine reacts by trembling. The series of drawings of the "E-Rosa" are works that capture this technological transformation of nature with elegance.

"Sonic Primordia" an illustration of Carl Sagen’s statement in "The Cosmos:"We are all star stuff harvesting star light. The structural elements of the piece consists of a pair of 6 foot tall human lungs with bronchia made from dryer vents, recycled vinyl sheeting and PVC pipes. Housed within this structure are speakers connected to a discarded stereo amplifier which plays biological and data-derived channels of sounds through the lungs, controlled via a laptop. Viewers can interact with and control the sounds of the piece via a pair of digital joysticks, modifying sounds including human heartbeats and the audio shifted sounds of the big bang explosion.

"Circuit Cerebellum" is a sculptural piece mixing an anatomical model of the human brain with recycled electronic components, symbolizing the posthuman possibilities of expanding the human consciousness with additional components of our own manufacture.

"Hygro Rhizome" is group of 6 interconnected sculptural rhizomes, root-like structures of biological plants, each with their own circuit that measures the water supply in an attached beaker. As long as there is water, the rhizome remains internally illuminated, dimming and going dark as the water evaporates or is contaminated.

"City Fish" is an animation of a gold fish in a fish bowl, who responds humorously to the ambient city noises, demonstrating how our environmental noise applies stress even to those surrounding us.

China Blue is an internationally exhibiting artist who was the first person to record the Eiffel Tower in Paris France and, as a recipient of a NASA/RI Space Grant, the first person to record NASA’s Vertical Gun. Her work has been shown, galleries and non-profit spaces in Finland, Sweden, France and the US. She was the US representative at OPEN XI, Venice, Italy, an exhibition held in conjunction with the Architecture Biennale. Her work has also been shown at the Melbourne International Arts Festival in Australia and the Armory Fair in New York. Reviews of her work have been published in the New York Times, Art in America, Art Forum, artCritical and NY Arts to name a few. She has been interviewed by France 3 (TV), for the film "Com-mu-nity" produced by the Architecture Institute of America and was the featured artist for the 2006 annual meeting of the Acoustic Society of America. She has been an adjunct professor and Fellow at Brown University in the United States. Her work is represented by Galerie Barnoud, Dijon, France and Art Currents, New York, NY. To learn more about her work go to www.chinablueart.com.

This event is sponsored by the Department of Art and Art History, University of Rhode Island.

Go to my website if you want to see some of the pieces http://www.chinablueart.com/Seventh%20Kingdom.htm.

I will be uploading new installation images after 3/1.

Thank you.

17. Michel Auder, FF Alumn, at Four Boxes Gallery, Krabbesholm, Denmark, opening Feb. 27

Michel Auder. "Dinner is Served"
27 February – 14 March 2010

Opening Saturday, 27 February at 8 pm

Four Boxes Gallery
http://www.krabbesholm.dk

Krabbesholm is delighted to host Michel Auder's first solo exhibition in Denmark at our new exhibition space Four Boxes Gallery. The exhibition will display new video and photo works by the artist, along with some of Auder's earlier works never before exhibited in Denmark.

Michel Auder, whose art practice spans over 40 years, was one of the first artists to use video as an artistic medium.

In Auder's work, the camera both witnesses and directs social exchange. It describes a highly subjective position, moving about his environment, recording its soundtrack, admitting incidental drama, autobiographical detail, and the real-time incursions of broadcast media. In the early 1970s, Auder adopted a continuous approach to filmmaking -- constant documentation of the people and scenarios he encountered. As a result, he amassed an extensive archive of video footage, which he uses and reuses in his works. His films collide with narratives in art history and popular memory, and involve artists, writers, and musicians whom he has met over the years.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Krabbesholm will publish a book edited by the exhibition's curator artist Michael Stickrod. The book will include texts by English writer/curator Michelle Cotton, French filmmaker Brigitte Cornand, and US artist Justin Liberman.

This is the beginning of a new series of Krabbesholm books, which will differ in format from those in the previous series. The book will be available online for a short period of time at http://www.krabbesholm.dk starting February 27, 2010.

Michel Auder will attend the opening, where he will discuss his work and thoughts about this exhibition.

"...He's wonderful and hilarious and knows exactly what it's all about and has earned my undying respect. What he's doing is impossible, and he knows it. That's good art...." L.A. Weekly

"Merging improv, erotica, entertainment, religion and ritual, Frank Moore - self-styled shaman, world-renowned disabled performance artist, and 2008 presidential candidate ...." - East Bay Express

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

"Surely wonderful and mind-goosing experience." L.A. Reader
