SPECIAL PROGRAMMING

Artist’s Project
Leidy Churchman takes over the lobby with a large set of facsimile book paintings on wood. Drawing upon the stacks at the Museum of Modern Art Library Library with friend and librarian David Senior, Churchman traces a unique and fetching portrait of artists’ publications from the last hundred years.

Special Project Rooms
Select exhibitors take over entire galleries: AA Bookstore with Bedford Books (London), Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI; New York), Fillip and A.AAAARG.ORG (Vancouver; Los Angeles), and Picturebox (Brooklyn). Andrew Roth (New York) exhibits a retrospective of PPP Publishing. Goteblüd (San Francisco) presents an exhibition of more than six hundred Riot Grrrl zines, with a working photocopy station. Werkplaats Typografie (Arnhem), the Dutch super-school, brings its entire student body to design, produce, and sell books while you watch.

The Classroom
The Classroom is a curated series of informal conversations between artists, workshops, readings and other artist-led events, with continuous enrollment for all fair-goers throughout the weekend. Participants include: Casco (Utrecht), f.ART magazine (New York), Golden Age (Chicago), J&L Books with Jason Fulford (Atlanta), Kodoji Press with Erik Steinbrecher (Zurich), Little Joe (London), The New Dreamz with Rose Luardo and Andrew Jeffrey Wright (Philadelphia), Onomatopee (Eindhoven), Roma Publications with Jo Baer (Amsterdam), Seems (San Francisco), Sumi Ink Club (Los Angeles), Swill Children (Brooklyn), Triple Canopy (New York and Los Angeles) and Alexis Zavialoff of Motto (Berlin), among others. The Classroom is organized by David Senior, the Museum of Modern Art Library.

Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference
The Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference is a dynamic, two-day event focused on emerging practices and debates within art-book culture. This year’s sessions address a wide array of subjects, including: experimental libraries, the so-called zine renaissance, fusion of art and design in typography, contemporary criticism, and new pedagogical approaches to the ever-expanding field of artists’ books. The first day of the conference ends with a lively pecha kucha, a rapid-fire event in which invited speakers have just five minutes to comment on an artwork. Full-conference registrants receive a specially commissioned book by Emily Roysdon, an interdisciplinary artist and writer who examines the intersections of choreography and politics. Roysdon's book is a meditation on vintage photographs of the New York piers by queer photographer Alvin Baltrop.

6. Ana Mendieta, FF Alumn, at Galerie Lelong, Manhattan, opening Oct. 28

ANA MENDIETA
Documentation and Artwork, 1972-1985

October 28 - December 11, 2010
opening reception
Thursday, October 28, 6-8 pm

Galerie Lelong
528 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

ANA MENDIETA
Documentation and Artwork, 1972 - 1985

Opening reception: Thursday, October 28, 2010, 6-8 pm
Exhibition continues through December 11, 2010

Galerie Lelong is pleased to announce its eighth exhibition of the work of Ana Mendieta, entitled Ana Mendieta: Documentation and Artwork, 1972­-1985, which marks the 25th anniversary of the artist's death at the age of 36. On view will be original photographs, slides and other materials from the artist's archive that have never been exhibited, along with rarely seen photographs, drawings, sculpture and recently restored films. The exhibition will span Mendieta's entire career, from her explorations as a student in Iowa in the early '70s to her works in the mid-'80s made while living in Rome as an accomplished artist, and will examine a number of significant motifs that recur throughout her work including blood, fire, and concealment. Mendieta returned to these elements in a number of series and projects, each time considering a different facet of their implications on the body and landscape. The artist's sister, Raquelin Mendieta, who was instrumental in the organization of the exhibition, will be present at the opening on Thursday, October 28, 6-8 pm.

Since Ana Mendieta's retrospective at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in 2004, there has been a continuing re-evaluation of her work, and also of time-based performance work. Recent exhibitions such as 2007's WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution have highlighted artists who pursued an investigation of the body, landscape and endurance in actions that were often ephemeral and intangible. As an outgrowth of study on these practices, critics and art historians have debated the role of documentation in performance art. Immersion into Mendieta's body of work demonstrates that process and product are not often strictly delineated. Mendieta matched her integration of themes and media with a fluid approach towards documentation and presentation. A prolific, highly experimental artist, the images that Mendieta printed in her lifetime represent a small fraction of the original slides and negatives that remain in her archive.

Ana Mendieta: Documentation and Artwork, 1972­-1985 displays how thoroughly and, at times, obsessively Mendieta approached the visual conceptualization of her images. Her persistence is most apparent in her silueta [silhouette] works, which she explored throughout her career. Two siluetas that will be exhibited are Silueta de Cohetes and Alma en Fuego. These works each use fire and refer to transformation and transfiguration, expressing the elements of religion and folk spirituality that so fascinated Mendieta. The numerous slides, negatives, and Super 8 films for the works are testaments to Mendieta's ability, with quite simple documentation, to create iconic, indelible imagery that remains alive long after her transient gestures.

Galerie Lelong has exclusively represented the Estate of Ana Mendieta since 1991. Mendieta's work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions at over 30 museums worldwide, including the Helsinki City Art Museum, Fundació Antoni Tápies in Barcelona, Centro Galego de Arte Contemporanea in Santiago de Compostela, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C., Kunstmuseum Luzern, Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Havana, and Museo de Arte Contemporaneo in Monterrey. Since her last exhibition at Lelong in 2008, Mendieta's work has been featured in over 20 museum group exhibitions, a solo show at Alison Jacques Gallery in London, and a dedicated area at the Tate Modern in its display of the permanent collection. Mendieta is currently featured in Crossing at Paço de Artes in São Paulo, Signs of Life: Ancient Knowledge in Contemporary Art at the Kunstmuseum in Luzern, and The Original Copy: Photography of Sculpture, 1839 to Today at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

FRANC PALAIA Solar BUS -SIGN for UCAT
Dedication: Friday, Oct. 29 at 2pm,1 Danny Circle,Kingston, NY
For information call: 845-486-1378 or UCAT at 845-340-3334
FRANC PALAIA was commissioned by the Ulster County Transportation Center to create a monumental Bus Sign Sculpture. The hand painted sign illustrates a new Hybrid Electric bus that will replaces the old diesel powered UCAT transit buses. The solar illumnated bus sign was completed in 2009 and measures 6’ x 12’. What makes this bus sign unique is that the sign’s red and orange signal lights are real and are illuminated by electricity supplied by a 18" x 48" solar panel situated adjacent to the sign. The solar panel collects sunlight during the day and automatically illuminates the bus lights every evening at dusk and turns off at sunrise. The sign is painted in a hyper realistic and illusionistic style and appears to be standing in full 3 dimensions, but is completely flat. FRANC PALAIA lives and works in Poughkeepsie and Jersey City and has received numerous commissions for public art. Since the mid 1990s, he has received six public art commissions from N.Y. and N.J. Transit. Palaia is a professional practicioner in several media, they include; painting, sculpture, photography, light boxes, murals, lamp design, artists books and is also an active curator. Palaia has exhibited extensively locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. He has been awarded over 20 grants in all media, which incude the restigious Rome Prize, Louis Comfort Tiffany grant and a Polaroid Sponsorship. He has presented over 40 solo shows that include 12 in New York City. His 300 group shows include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum annex, OK Harris, Artists Space, PS 1, Drawing Center, Newark Museum, Vassar College, Carl Van Brunt gallery, G.A.S., Carrie Haddad gallery, Albany Airport Gallery, Printed Matter, Franklin Furnace, High Museum of Art and the Dorsky Museum of Art. He founded G.A.S. Gallery in 2007 and was a TV host and producer of "Arts Focus". Franc is included in the 2010 Collaborative Concepts Saunder’s Farm Outdoor Sculpture show where he is showing a sculptural photo-bus shelter. Solo shows for 2011 include the Samuel Morse Museum, Locust Grove Tranverse gallery in 2011 and a show of Polaroid photographs at Queens College’s Calandra Italian-American Institute in NYC.

Hello Everyone -

Below is information about 3 new road tattoos, a group show, a guest artist workshop, a benefit I am curating and some fun press. If you'd like more information or images of anything mentioned, let me know. Thanks for taking a look.

WASHINGTON DC ROAD TATTOO
Daughters and Sons Knot commissioned by the Washington DC Commission on Arts and Humanities, is located on the 800 block of Vermont Avenue between Lafayette Park and McPherson Square. Two blocks from the White House, it is a location steeped in our national history of war and loss. Bringing this relationship to the present day Daughters and Sons Knot honors Washington DC area soldiers recently killed while serving our country by including their children's names in the piece. Centered within the block, Daughters and Sons Knot is a complex Celtic Knot alluding to the interdependence of both a community and a family as well as referencing heraldry designs used on formal dress uniforms and metals. Approximately 60 feet wide and 300 feet long, it was made with the help of local volunteers and neighbors.

19. Martha Rosler, FF Alumn, at La Virreina, Barcelona, Spain, Oct. 29, 2010-Jan. 30, 2011, and more

If You Lived Here Still…
An archive project by Martha Rosler
29 October 2010 – 30 January 2011

La Virreina Centre de la Imatge
La Rambla, 99
Barcelona 08002
Spain
www.bcn.cat/virreinacentredelaimatge

In 1989 artist Martha Rosler organized her project 'If You Lived Here…' at the Dia Art Foundation in New York City. 'If You Lived Here…' was a seminal project on housing, homelessness and the systems and conditions underlying them such as gentrification, bureaucratic complicity or non-compliance and increasing privatisation of the public sector. It took a radical approach toward art and institutions of that time, in a mode that might be called cross-disciplinary and "participatory." The archive project by Martha Rosler at La Virreina Centre de la Imatge in Barcelona, initiated by Anton Vidokle and first presented at e-flux in New York and Casco in Utrecht, provides an opportunity to revisit Rosler's undertaking and interrogate its legacy. Besides the archival materials that present the organisational and research processes behind the project, more research documents that Rosler has assembled or solicited others to contribute over the last 20 years are installed for close reading at La Virreina Centre de la Imatge. These also include new materials gathered in Barcelona.

For the presentation at La Virreina Centre de la Imatge in Barcelona the archive is complemented with local references to several collectives engaged in work with the housing crisis. On this occasion the emphasis is put on different forms of cultural activism merging in the context of the archive compiled by Martha Rosler. For such a purpose La Virreina Lab organizes two consecutive panels on 28 October and 29 October. Representatives of collectives and local organizations will debate the dimensions of the current housing crisis from a cultural perspective. The first panel will focus on the challenges involved in the new strategies for social representation and the second will open the floor to a wide range of voices involved in the debates about the housing crisis in the specific context of the city of Barcelona.

Press Preview:
Friday, October 22 at 12 p.m.
Opening:
Saturday, October 23 at 6 p.m.

GAM-Civic Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art
Via Magenta 31
10128 Turin, Italy

www.gamtorino.it

Curator Elena Volpato

The Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Turin, GAM, presents the new chapter of the GAM Underground Project featuring the first Italian museum survey of Martha Rosler's work.

AS IF is the term adopted by Martha Rosler to describe her way of working, offering a sketch, a line of thinking, and an exploration of possibilities. This approach uses many modes of production to carry out her investigations, and to imagine a range of possible outcomes, to problematic situations in art and in the wider world. Motivating Rosler's work is a desire to spur viewers to become aware of the issues that emerge from her practice—and to become active. To a public inclined to exclaim "I could do this!" when facing a contemporary work, Martha Rosler replies "Indeed! please do!"

The exhibition will showcase many of the artist's major works from 1965 to the present, including pieces from her historic photomontage series, Body Beautiful and Bringing the War Home, in addition to her more recent installation works, including a considerable selection of her photographic series dedicated to spaces of transit: airports, streets, and subways, as well as numerous video works from throughout her career. Her most influential works, which have made an indelible impact on the development of art in the past forty years will be displayed alongside her writings and research documents, offering a unique portrait of the evolution of Rosler's unparalleled artistic and social commitment.

The show also presents a new project specifically addressing Turin today, investigating aspects of the trafficking in African migrants, particularly African women, in our country.

The aim of this exhibition is not merely to celebrate Rosler's past achievements but to insist on their continued relevance for the present. Even decades after their first appearance her works retain their power to provoke, posing difficult and perennial questions – about the construction of gender and class identity, the systematic representation of political and cultural "Others", and the experience of everyday life. Each of these, Rosler reveals, belies the very freedom promised by our modern consumer society.

The works on exhibit are presented following a thematic and systemic order. Works on similar subjects but produced in different years are grouped together to offer a wider view on their coherence and breadth of investigation. Their juxtaposition reveals each work as a committed and coherent examination of different aspects of the social and political life world.

The accompanying publication provides an exhaustive presentation of the artist and her work, offering a range of in-depth research that is as-yet missing from the Italian scene - despite Rosler's numerous foreign publications. This publication is especially necessary considering Rosler emphasis on the written and spoken word, not only in her practice as an artist but as an internationally acclaimed essayist and lecturer.

The publication, edited by Elena Volpato for Archivebooks, features a collection of scripts, transcripts and textual portions of installations, as well as a comprehensive survey of the works she has created in 45 years of ongoing investigation.

20. John Boone, FF Alumn, at Art 101, Brooklyn, NY, thru Nov. 28

JOHN BOONE'S GROUP SHOW

October 21 through November 28

The opening reception is on October 21st from 6 to 9 pm.

To make a long story short, my paintings include a wide variety of subject areas, both public and private. Piece by piece, I take common global American English idioms and organize them into compositions of a word or collection of colloquialisms which reflect a common understanding and turn it on its ear. Throwing some light on the subject, the texts are always painted in a digital font which is technical, empirical and precise while the subjects are casual and informal.

As far as I can see, American idiomatic expressions are the perfect folk art, they belong to no one, are not authored by anyone but are used by everyone. They are readymade pure media by any stretch of the imagination.

Practising without a license, my work consists of handmade signs reflecting commonly expressed thoughts through an image of high tech.
Drawing conclusions from roots in Pop, Conceptual, Fluxus, advertising and journalism, my artworks are prompts for thinking outside the box and ahead of the curve.

TO REGISTER CONTACT chimeralab@aol.com
Halloween weekend is a fabulous time to be in Provincetown and it is highly recommended to book a room ASAP!
www.jenniferhicks.org

CHIMERAlab Dance Theatre comes to Provincetown for this special first time Butoh Dance Workshop. How can we dance a poem while finding the deepest meaning to the self? We move from metaphors, dancing the imagery of life and emptiness, nature and atmosphere while becoming something new, sometimes unknown even to the self. To dance Butoh is to strip away our " habitual performative" selves" to find another, deeper being. Butoh is a performing art which started as a rebellious dance form in the 1960s in Japan. Dancer Tatsumi Hijikata was the leading figure in this movement, which he called Ankoku Butoh or the dance of utter darkness. Darkness is a primal place; unknown and open to change. It is also a place of reshaping. Nothing is ever as we think it is. We may move from water flowing though your system to lightening coursing through your veins; a fish in your stomach to clouds underfoot. This dance is a dynamic interplay between tension and release; a creative conflict from which we begin our dance. We will begin in the studio then move out into nature and finally to perform in the street.

Placing the performative body in various environments creates a deep sense of self in relationship to space, texture, timing, internal body, external body, each other and an energetic sensitivity to location. Wind, sound, smell, the ground underfoot etc. are all incorporated in the dance.

"...Butoh attempts to affirm the dance which lies within the body--the body is, in itself, contemplated as a small universe..."
-Goda Nario, "On Ankoku Butoh"

Jennifer Hicks, director of CHIMERAlab Dance Theatre, has been teaching movement, lecturing, creating original theatre for over 25 years. She received her MFA from Naropa University in Contemporary Performance, where she studied Viewpoints and Suzuki, Roy Hart Vocal work and BMC®. Her BFA is from Tufts University as a Theater Design Major and Degree in Fine Arts from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, in Boston and where she was also a winner of the prestigious Traveling Scholars Award. She is a certified Yoga Instructor with the National Yoga Alliance, Shintaido Instructor and TranceDance Facilitator. She has been studying Butoh since the early 1990's and is a regular dancer with Katsura Kans International Dance Company. Ms. Hicks is also director of CHIMERAlab Dance Theatre and a member of Mobius Artist Collective in Boston. For more information and full bio www.jenniferhicks.org

22. Bruce Yonemoto, FF Alumn, at Alexander Gray Associates, Manhattan, opening October 27

Bruce Yonemoto
October 27 – December 11, 2010
Opening Reception for the Artist: Wednesday, October 27, 2010, 6:00–8:00 PM

Video, Before I Close My Eyes (2010)

Alexander Gray Associates is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Los Angeles-based artist Bruce Yonemoto (b. 1949, San Jose, CA). On view are a recent video projection and a series of photographs, included in Yonemoto’s 2010 solo exhibition? at the St. Louis Art Museum.

The video Before I Close My Eyes (2010) appropriates and re-casts a pivotal scene from Ingmar Bergman’s 1966 film Persona, reconfiguring its social and political framework. In Yonemoto’s scene, the female protagonist is replaced by Asian men, who watch television footage from a 1963 broadcast of a Buddhist monk practicing self-immolation. The scene loops, moving image within moving image, eliciting a mute response from the layers of viewers, as the highly charged image of political protest loses its power through mediated repetition.

Yonemoto’s use of appropriation continues in the photographic series Beyond South: Vietnam (Caravaggio) (2010). Here the artist recreates masterpieces by the16th century Baroque painter, Michelangelo Caravaggio. Each photograph re-imagines an original Caravaggio portrait setting with the original figures replaced by similarly posed Asian models. Further complicating the Western gaze and ideals of patronage and politics, Yonemoto’s sitters are clothed in South and North Vietnamese military uniforms, themselves reproductions sold to contemporary tourists in Vietnam. Through Hollywood devices of costume and set, the photographs muddy readings of subject and gaze, Western art history and late 20th Century politics, religion and representation, imperialism and tourism.

Also on view is a video sculpture, Exotica: Hashi de Mato Grosso (1994). In 1994 the artist received a Lila Wallace Reader’s Digest Fellowship to live and work in Brazil to investigate coexisting Brazilian and Japanese customs and culture. One of the resulting artworks from that research, Exotica reclaims explorer Lt. Candido Rondon’s mid-1950s film of a tribe from the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso; this footage is projected onto a screen made of chopsticks manufactured in the 1990s from wood from the Brazilian rainforest. Yonemoto’s unlikely juxtaposition of Margaret Mead-era, anthropological footage with a contemporary consumer product conflates ideas of cultural import and export, globalization and migration.

Yonemoto's work has been exhibited internationally, including individual exhibitions at the St. Louis Art Museum, MO (2010); Santa Barbara Contemporary Art Forum, CA (2008); the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, MO (2001); the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, PA (2001); the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH (1995); and the Santa Monica Museum of Art, CA (1993). His work has been included in numerous biennials, including the Gwangju Biennale (2008), Corcoran Biennial (2002); Fukui International Video Biennale (1993); and the Whitney Biennial (1993, 1987). In 1999, the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles presented a retrospective exhibition of Bruce and Norman Yonemoto’s collaborative work spanning three decades. Other exhibitions include California Video: Artists and Histories at the Getty Center, Los Angeles (2008); Los Angeles 1955–1986, Pompidou Center, Paris (2007); Exile of the Imaginary, Generali Foundation, Vienna, Austria (2007) and In Other Words, and the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY (2006). Bruce Yonemoto is a Professor of Studio Art at the University of California, Irvine.

M.I.T. Press, Leonardo Magazine Vol. 43,Issue No. 5, 2010
Article: Crossings/An Interactive Installation Author Nina Yankowitz

Our global collaborative of artists and media scientists, brought together by the eMobilArt initiative, created Crossings/An Interactive Installation, that allows people to PLAY A GAME exploring relative perspectives of sacred texts. The project was motivated by our team’s belief that most world’s conflicts are fueled by religious intolerance and misunderstanding. This was not a religious quest, but rather an artwork motivated to help people understand that cultures and philosophies are not very different. It premiered at the State Museum of Contemporary Art in 2009, with other eMobilart art/science collaborative teams participating in the Thessaloniki Biennial in Greece. The article for Leonardo, M.I.T. press, discusses the team's process and the various technologies we explored/developed, and abandoned, while searching for the most flexible technology and installation scheme that could work within a myriad of installation space limitations. Briefly, the installation was realized with a projection of an abstracted Multi-faith Cathedral rotating slowly on a wall as people enter a virtual religious space. Visitors walk on a mosaic floor projection, hearing scriptures read in various languages over a sound track of electronically stretched voices sounding as musical instruments. A database of keyword frequency tagged texts is incorporated within our custom designed software. Participants are invited to prioritize dimensions of scripture content and instructed to select words (topics) to explore with an infrared wand. They slide words along lines on a whiteboard wall, leaving each along six horizontal lines at location(s), assigning more or less weight to selected topics. For example, extreme left (0%) to extreme right (100%). As words slide, Mauri Kaipainen’s multi-perspective search engine displays, in real-time, relative importance that scriptures reflect on the adjacent wall. Texts are changing, resulting various perspectives from searching (top to bottom) the relative placement of words. For example, every change to the positioning of words reflects a new order of perspectives--Each new order of texts displays the relative importance scriptures reveal from the composite of corresponding words and their relational placements. Participants can save their selections and after exiting, retrieve them from a website to learn from which religions their color-coded texts originated.

"Your Documents Please"
Traveling Exhibition Comes to Chelsea

Nov. 3 - Nov. 21, 2010
Hours: Wed. - Sun. 12 to 6pm

Reception
Wednesday Nov. 3, 6 to 9 pm

Location
Alma in Manhattan* - hosted by Fine Light Inc. **
601 West 26th St. 8th Floor
(between 11th Ave and West Side Hwy)

The exhibition, "Your Documents Please," reflects issues of identity and its documentation.
The curators asked participants to make an artwork about the size of a passport or smaller that functions visually or conceptually as if it were an identification document. "Documents" by more than 270 artists living in 26 countries are included. As the show has traveled, new documents by local artists have been added.

The exhibition opened at the Museum of Arts and Crafts– Itami, Japan, in April 2008 and has travelled to alternative spaces including ZAIM artspace–Yokohama, 2B Gallery–Budapest, Galerie Kurt im Hirsch–Berlin, Z Gallery–Bratislava, and Galería Ajolote Arte Contemporáneo–Guadalajara. It will be in New York City November 3 - 21, 2010.

In keeping with the focus on documents, a letter size paper certificate with head photo of the artist, name, place of residence, country of origin as well as a photo of one of their previous art pieces and explanatory notes about the document they have made for the show is presented in a vinyl sleeve with each artwork in place of a conventional label.

The lives of people around the world are shaped by the legitimacy or illegitimacy of their status in the groups and institutions with whom they interact. As globalization proceeds and local bonds are eroded, identification documentation such as passports, credit cards, drivers' licenses and calling cards has become the physical medium in which the political, commercial, cultural and ultimately the spiritual disposition of the individual are negotiated. As new forms and criteria of identification are produced even the nature of identity is changed.
