DEEP IMPRESSIONS: WILLIE COLE
WORKS ON PAPER
September 21, 2010–January 8, 2011

The James Gallery
The Graduate Center
The City University of New York
365 Fifth Avenue (at 34th St)
New York, NY, 10016

You are cordially invited to a special reception for the artist

Tuesday, October 12, 5:30–7 PM.

This exhibition is the first to survey the prints, drawings, and other works on paper of the New Jersey–based artist Willie Cole (b. 1955). With a selection spanning more than thirty years, from a circa 1977 pastel self-portrait, a giant woodcut print of a slave ship evoked with an ironing board, and a wide array of steam-iron impressions, to recent foreboding, graphic novel–like images, guest curator Patterson Sims demonstrates that this artist—best known for his sculpture—has found many ways with works on paper to explore deep cultural and personal impressions.

8. Irina Danilova, FF Alumn, in 1st Ural Industrial Biennial, Ekaterinburg, Russia, thru Oct. 10

I just came back from Russia where I made a mural titled "Wall of Fame" for the Special Projects of The 1st Ural Industrial Biennial of contemporart art in Ekaterinburg.

http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=320047&id=541587515&fbid=10150090202487516&ref=mf

The Biennial will be running till October 10th. There is also an international video program "Industrial 59" that I curated, which is screened in a loop there. Both works are at Worsted Factory, 2 Novinskaya Street in the fascinating city of Ekaterinburg. My video "Pre-Industrial" is in the "Industrial 59" video program as well (it

can be seen on Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/15189683). The Main Program
of the Biennial is in a big space of the former printing house of newspaper "Ural Worker" while Special Projects are primarily a number of site specific installations in several mega plants of the legendary industrial city. The curator of Special Projects was Alisa Prudnikova.

I am also glad to announce that the first 10 drawings have been completed for the City Drawings project that recently expanded internationally.

Latest drawings: in Chicago (June), in Minneapolis (drawn by Hiram in July), in Perth (Australia in August) and in Ekaterinburg (Russia in September)

10. Paul Granjon, FF Alumn, at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff, Wales, Oct. 9

Paul Granjon • Black Box Ni
Wearing a special interactive costume, Paul Granjon delivers his most recent performance work focusing on the latest developments of military robotics. However, during the course of the presentation a mysterious electronic black box sends radio-wave commands to the costume, interrupting the smooth flow of his delivery. He has to complete a mission for the black box before resuming his human activities.

Black Box Ni is Paul Granjon’s latest reflection on the co-evolution of humans and machines. The performance tackles issues of technological dependence, human adaptation and communication with machines and features a unique mix of funny robots, sad songs and a happy ending. Paul is a regular contributor to the programme of Chapter, a steady hit with audiences since 1999.

"Whether watching Paul Granjon perform with his cast of crazy robots or entering the strange world of his gallery installations you know you’re in for a treat."

CHRIS FUNKHOUSER is a poet, scholar, and multimedia artist. In 2009, the Associated Press commissioned him to prepare digital poems for the occasion of Barack Obama's inauguration. He is author of the documentary study, Prehistoric Digital Poetry: An Archaeology of Forms, 1959-1995, and an eBook (CD-ROM), Selections 2.0. He currently teaches at New Jersey Institute of Technology and University of Pennsylvania, is a Senior Editor at PennSound, a member of the scientific review committee of the digital literature journal regards crois?s (University of Paris 8), is on the Advisory Board of the Digital Poetry Archive of Canada, and is an External Collaborator with Ncleo de Ciberteatro, Insituto Politcnico do Porto (Portugal). Since 1986 he has been an editor with We Press, with whom he has produced poetry in a variety of media. A widely published author, he was Visiting Fulbright Scholar at Multimedia University in Cyberjaya, Malaysia (2006), on the summer writing program faculty of the Naropa University (2007), and is presently Digital Poet-in-Residence at Bowery Poetry Club (New York City).

ALAN SONDHEIM is our (all our) resident genius and provocateur. He is also an important artist, theorist, code-worker, poet, musician, choreographer, essayist, filmmaker, video-maker, performer and new-media innovator, who has been working tirelessly and prolifically and with astonishing results since before I was born. If youre lucky, you may be on one of his email lists, which are the primary way he distributes his writing and other work.

Sondheim has a new book of poetry out from Salt Press: DEEP LANGUAGE. Maria Damon says it tangles us up in these hypnotically repetitive, abject, slyly humorous and childishly gleeful, philosophically, aesthetically, theoretically and psychologically dense and insightful poems, that are also essays, diasporic riffs and incantations, true confessions, Platonic dialogues, shtick, tantrums, aphorisms and manifesti. John Cayley says he is one of the precious few who joyfully and in abject misery risks these terrors of writing for us, for our pleasure and our undoing. What happens? Language disposes of us.

15. Susan Kleinberg, FF Alumn, September-October 2010 calendar

SUSAN KLEINBERG INSTALLATIONS IN MONTALCINO, TUSCANY - GIBELLINA, SICILY - TUNIS, TUNISIA

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2010 -

Susan Kleinberg's spinning, spiraling piece, "Blood Roll," will open the Hartvest Festival in Montalcino, Italy, Sept. 25 - Oct. 3, 2010. The digital installation will be projected in the immense Fortress of Montalcino, famed for its inhabitants’ resistance to centuries of invasion. Blood Roll's reverberating soundtrack will echo throughout. The piece becomes visible on the fortress walls as dusk descends, rolling, imploding, continually moving against any predictable laws of physics or nature. www.hartvestfestival.com/

"TierraSin Males," which was shown during the Venice Biennale 2009, opens at the Fondazione Orestiadi in Gibellina, Sicily on October 9. It will be projected in the museum's inner courtyard, in relation to the "Mountain of Salt," by Mimmo Paladino, and the 16th century granary. The piece’s questioning of possibilities through revolving tension becomes yet more transparent in this ancient landscape of wonder and terror. www.orestiadi.it

"TierraSin Males" will be projected at the Palazzo Dar Bach Hamba in Tunis, Tunisia, soon thereafter. It has been installed in the permanent collection of the Certosa di Padula, Padula, Italy; curated by Achille Bonito Oliva.

For further information, please contact xplr@mac.com or (+39) 349.360.1969.

Hartvest Festival – (+39) 068.339.6616.
Fondazione Orestiadi - Baglio Di Stefano – Gibellina, (TP) Sicily – (+39) 0924 67844.

SUSAN KLEINBERG
Over the past six years, Ms. Kleinberg has developed five high-definition digital projection pieces: BLOOD ROLL, D-ROLL, P-SPIN, A DELICATE BALANCE and TIERRA SIN MALES, with related prints, drawings and paintings. BLOOD ROLL was shown first in November 2004 in Seoul, Korea, in an international show at the Total Museum. In 2005, she showed BLOOD ROLL during the opening of the Venice Biennale, in collaboration with the Istituto Veneto. TIERRA SIN MALES was shown during the 2009 Venice Biennale, sponsored by Telecom Italia.

Ms. Kleinberg installed P-SPIN at the Pulkovo Observatory in St. Petersburg, Russia, in the fall of 2007, for Pro Arte; in an exhibition organized by Olesya Turkina, curator from the Russian State Museum. In 2003, Ms. Kleinberg mounted "What Would Make for a Better World," a video installation for "Future Democracy" at the Istanbul Biennial.

In 2001, she created "Fear Not" for the Venice Biennale, curated by Harald Szeemann. It was shown in New York at P.S. 1/MOMA (2001-2002) and was chosen as a Special Project for the Chicago International Art Fair (2002). Ms. Kleinberg showed related paintings and drawings at Venice Design Gallery, Venice, Italy (2001) and a preview installation at the Stark Gallery in New York (2001). In 2002, the piece was shown along with related prints at the Tasende Gallery in Los Angeles and the Tasende Gallery in La Jolla, CA.

"Sposalizio del Mar," whose reference was to the most important ceremony of the Venetian Republic, the marriage of the Doge to the sea, floated in the Grand Canal between San Marco and San Giorgio, part of "Artelaguna," during the 1995 Venice Biennale. The beginnings of all of this work were shown at the Castelli Gallery in New York. www.susankleinberg.com

17. Hannah Wilke, FF Alumn, book signing at Ronald Feldman Gallery, Manhattan, Sept. 29

HANNAH WILKE
Early Drawings
September 11 - October 30

Book Signing: Wednesday, September 29, 2010, 6-8pm
The gallery will host a book-signing on September 29 (6:00 - 8:00PM) for the monograph Hannah Wilke by Nancy Princenthal, published by Prestel.

Hannah Wilke By Nancy Princenthal
176 pages with approx. 150 illustrations, 75 in color
Hardcover, 9 ½ in. x 11 in.
$49.95
ISBN: 978-3-7913-3972-6
Publication Date: September 2010

Advance praise for Hannah Wilke:
"An essential and overdue contribution to securing Hannah Wilke's place in art history. I can't think of a better person to tackle this task than Nancy Princenthal." Janine Antoni, artist

Hannah Wilke's artwork, like her life, frames a heroic story about formal invention and social activism, personal loyalties and individual freedom, and, above all, breathtaking risk. A defining presence in the emerging community of women artists in the 1960s and '70s, Wilke developed a unique and controversial visual language in response to her own and women's experience. She was an unapologetic individualist who explored the pleasures of sexuality.

Using a wide range of nontraditional mediums, including latex and chewing gum as well as photography and film, she irreverently paid tribute to predecessors from Marcel Duchamp to David Smith. Focusing on the body as instrument and object of visual expression, Wilke made her art an unremitting self-exploration -- without false modesty (when her naked body was an uncomplicated delight to behold) or shame (when it was mercilessly blighted by cancer). Wilke's art is inseparable from Wilke the person -- bold, sometimes outrageous, and, ultimately, heartbreakingly courageous.

About the Author: Nancy Princenthal, a New York-based art critic and lecturer, has written on contemporary art for 25 years. A former Senior Editor at Art in America, she is also the author of numerous books on art and a co-author of After the Revolution: Women Who Transformed Contemporary Art (Prestel).

Advance review of Hannah Wilke in Twin Cities Daily Planet by Jay Gabler:
"Those who think they know Wilke will be surprised by little-known corners of the artist's output highlighted by the author -- for example, her paintings and drawings."
Read the full review.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00AM - 6:00PM. Monday by appointment. The gallery will be closed Saturday, September 18. For more information, contact Sarah Paulson at (212) 226-3232 or sarah@feldmangallery.com.

18. Dread Scott, FF Alumn, launches new website, http://dreadscott.net , and more
Greetings,

It's been a busy few weeks (actually a busy summer) and many things to tell. I have a solo show in Long Island for which I just made a new series of paintings (yes paintings). I launched a new website, and posted documentation of "Money to Burn" (a street performance where I burned money on Wall Street). I have work in the current issue of BOMB magazine. Details on all of this and more below. http://dreadscott.net

Best, Dread
Hempstead, New York (Long Island)
Rosenberg Gallery, Hofstra University
It's Right to Rebel
September 22 - November 1, 2010
Opening Reception: Wed, September 29, 2pm
It's Right to Rebel includes paintings, videos and prints. Most of the work is new has never been exhibited before.
Five paintings transform archival photographs from the Cultural Revolution (China 1966-1976). Using enlarged Xerox transfers of the photographs, they depict the practice of covering walls with diazabao, "big character posters," widely used by ordinary people during the Cultural Revolution to

contribute to a society-wide struggle over the society's direction. The paintings excavate a hidden history, highlighting the breadth of the rebellion even though the particular content of the historic writing is obscured. Documentation of this work can be viewed here

There are several other pieces in the show including the new silent video, Perpetual 911, that repeatedly shows a plane crashing into and then reversing out of 2 World Trade Center. A graphic from Chanel 2 news reads "Breaking News: Earlier."

If you are in the area, I hope to see you at the opening.

Money to Burn (new video)
Money to Burn is a performance that was enacted on Wall Street June 2010. Starting with $250, I burned money—singles, fives, tens and twenties, one bill at a time, while encouraging traders and others on The Street to join me with their own money. Video of the performance is now on my site.

BOMB Magazine
BOMB Magazine asks an artist to contribute a work for the last page of each issue. This issue features my work "If God Didn't Create the Earth, Where Would We Live." Get the current issue at a fine booksellers near you.

Lectures
I will be lecturing about my work in New Orleans and in NYC in the coming weeks. The lecture in New Orleans will be this Monday (September 27). NYC will be October 25 at NYU. Email me for details about either if you are interested. Also in NYC I will be on a panel for the Ordinary Torture show (see above).

Lectures (pt 2.)
Help me corrupt the minds of America's youth. Bring me to a campus near you. A brochure about my lectures is available on for download on the About page my site.

20. Harley Spiller, FF Alumn, at Hoopla, Saratoga Springs, NY, Oct. 2

Saratoga Spa State Park, Children & Nature Saratoga, The Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs, Four Seasons Natural Foods and One Roof are hosting Saratoga’s next big exposition‐style offering. "The Hoopla" as it’s been dubbed, will take place on October 2nd from 11am – 4 pm in the Spa State Park and will focus on the simple choices we can make for our families. Don't miss Inspector Collector, 3-4 pm Come witness the hijinks as the indubitably delightful Inspector Collector helps usher in THE HOOPLA with his Museum Without Walls. See and handle fascinating and mysterious artifacts: ultra-smooth stones from foot of Salto Angel, the world's tallest waterfall; a Subway drink cup lid with an embedded mosquito; two-hundred year old Chinese food; scissors you wouldn't believe, a sequin from Elvis Presley's all white Viva Las Vegas jumpsuit, and more different white spoons than you could ever believe! Join the fun and bring your own unusual objects (one or two small ones - they have to fit inside your closed fist).

Harley Spiller, a.k.a. INSPECTOR COLLECTOR (IC) presents his collections of menus, autographs, photographs, neckties, spoons, and more to inspire the lifelong love of learning that necessarily comes to collectors of integrity. His international collections have been included in award-winning exhibitions at fine museums like the Smithsonian Institution, the New York Historical Society, the American Museum of Natural History, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Caracas, Venezuela. His "Junior Collector Days" at the Stamford Museum and at The Queens Museum of Art have drawn sell out crowds. He was named by Art & Antiques magazine as one of the nation's "Top 100 Collectors" and two of his exhibitions have been cited by Art in America as "Exhibitions of the Year." IC has numerous television credits, including guest hosting for The Maury Povich Show and The Learning Channel, and announcing and appearing as a guest alongside Mr. T on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show. His collections have been the subject of twelve New York Times features and countless other stories in The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker's "Talk of the Town," National Public Radio's "All Things Considered," even Ripley's Believe It or Not. In late 2005 he broke the Guinness World Record for the World's Largest Collection of restaurant menus. http://www.inspectorcollector.com/ This year, The Hoopla is supported by The City of Saratoga Springs, The Adirondack Trust Company, Fingerpaint Marketing, Saratoga National Bank, Stewart’s Shops and Allerdice Rent-All, among others.
