"...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

3. Nicole Eisenman, FF Alumn, in The New York Times, Jan. 14

The New York Times
January 14, 2011
Room to Feed 20 or Play With 2
By CONSTANCE ROSENBLUM
WHEN Victoria Robinson, a lifelong product of Manhattan’s Upper East Side, announced that she and her partner, Nicole Eisenman, were planning to buy a house in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, her mother couldn’t have been more dismayed.

"Remember how your mother reacted to the idea of our moving to Brooklyn?" Ms. Eisenman said one recent evening as she and Ms. Robinson sat facing each other in the living room of their cozy century-old house on Powers Street. "She asked if we’d need her to bring us milk, or maybe toilet paper. In her opinion, we were heading to the wild frontier."

Hardly. But the journey to what one of Ms. Robinson’s relatives described as their "wacky house in Brooklyn" was not uneventful.
The couple had met in 1999. Ms. Robinson, 41, who started out as a filmmaker, spent the past seven years doing development work for the Dia Art Foundation. Ms. Eisenman, a 45-year-old artist whose work has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum, was born in France and moved to New York the day after she graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design.

Shortly after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the couple moved upstate to Columbia County. But an artist can feel isolated in rural New York, and the idea of having children was percolating in both women’s minds. In fall 2004 they bought this three-story frame house for $590,000.

"We were told the house had been used as an S.R.O. building, and it was horribly run-down," Ms. Robinson said. "But there was something about the proportions that appealed to us. The good bones, as they say." Not to mention, Ms. Eisenman chimed in, with her usual flair for completing her partner’s sentences in deadpan fashion, "the 10 bowls of half-eaten cat food and the disgusting cesspool in the backyard. And the little shack we called the meth lab."

The couple spent more than $200,000 on a gut renovation that included opening up the warren of tiny rooms to create an inviting layout. They ripped off multiple layers of wallpaper — "It was like we were seeing the history of wallpaper," Ms. Eisenman said — and pulled up floorboards to reveal strange, ancient-looking plants. When they dug out the earth in the backyard, they discovered fragments of what looked like old Dutch pottery.

The moment they will never forget occurred on Ash Wednesday of 2005.
Ms. Eisenman was upstate at the time. Ms. Robinson was at her office in Manhattan. "And suddenly," Ms. Eisenman said, "we both started getting all these frantic phone calls. Friends had called other friends, and through the Williamsburg lesbian grapevine, we learned that our new house was burning down."

Racing to the site of their new purchase, they discovered that a fire had broken out when the pipes were being repaired. Firefighters had torn up the back of the house to douse the flames. "And now we have a whole lot of new skylights that we wouldn’t have had if the firemen hadn’t broken through the ceilings," Ms. Eisenman said.

By spring 2005 the couple were settled in their new home. Their daughter, George, named after Ms. Robinson’s beloved longtime nanny, Elizabeth Anne George Lewis Tennant, was born in January 2007. Their son, Frederick, arrived two years later. Ms. Eisenman’s expressionist portrait of her son, all eyes and mouth, hangs on an upstairs wall, one of many resident works by her and her artist friends, among them Cindy Sherman, Marilyn Minter, Marlene Dumas and Tal R.

Despite the extensive renovation, many original details survive. Thick wooden beams reach up to 13-foot ceilings. The hallways are topped with tin ceilings so lavishly embossed with urns and medallions, Ms. Eisenman said, "we feel as if we’re living inside a giant wedding cake."

The exterior, sheathed in what Ms. Robinson described as "hideous tar shingles," is decidedly unprepossessing. "But inside," she said, "there’s this nice little wonder." And she thinks that the outside’s plainness deters burglars.

Not surprisingly, the house is immensely child-friendly. A large playroom occupies most of the ground floor. On one wall of the children’s shared bedroom Ms. Eisenman painted a huge mural featuring the antics of Foghorn the bird and Cy the cat, who was named for the artist Cy Twombly. Above Freddy’s crib hang a series of paintings made for Ms. Robinson by her godmother — an angel with sparkles, a girl skipping with a balloon, a collage speckled with doilies.

The house brims with other family memorabilia, among them a photograph of the young Victoria in a small white gown with her parents and her brother at her christening. Nearby hangs a painting of a rugby match by a great-grandmother of Ms. Eisenman’s named Esther Hammermann. Inheritances from Ms. Robinson’s mother include a Moroccan rug and a black lacquer Chinoiserie chest with secret compartments that now serves as a liquor cabinet. A great-grandfather of Ms. Robinson’s, a mining engineer who worked for De Beers, brought the stinkwood dining table back from South Africa.

The table is the centerpiece of a dining area that flows into an open kitchen, a space that exudes warmth, thanks to the braided rug and the open shelves filled with dishes and cookbooks. With the leaves inserted, the table seats 20, perfect for two enthusiastic hostesses.

Every Sunday night they cook dinner for friends, many of them the proverbial starving artists. "And before the kids," Ms. Eisenman said, "we used to have amazing, elaborate parties."

Often they took their inspiration from "The Decadent Cookbook: Recipes of Obsession and Excess." But sometimes they created their own concoctions, one a dish they called Soul in Coffin, which was served on Halloween and featured a piece of sole shrouded in seaweed atop a bed of black linguine.

On another occasion they served roasted pig dressed with gold leaf.
"We’d planned a party on Feb. 25, which happened to be Anthony Burgess’s birthday," Ms. Robinson said, alluding to the British writer probably best known for the deeply unsettling novella "A Clockwork Orange." "So we honored him by being as over the top as we could."

4. Yoko Ono, FF Alumn, wins 8th Hiroshima Art Prize

Winner of the 8th Hiroshima Art Prize Decided Ms. Yoko Ono

Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art (Hiroshima MOCA)
1-1 Hijiyama Koen, Minami-Ku, Hiroshima, JAPAN
www.hcmca.cf.city.hiroshima.jp

The City of Hiroshima has selected the winner of the 8th Hiroshima Art Prize, Ms. Yoko Ono (born 1933 in Tokyo, currently lives in New York).

About the Hiroshima Art Prize
Established by the City of Hiroshima in 1989, the Hiroshima Art Prize recognizes the achievements of artists who have contributed to the peace of humanity in the field of contemporary art, and through contemporary art aims to appeal to a wider world and the spread the "Spirit of Hiroshima," which seeks everlasting world peace. This prize is awarded once every three years.

Past recipients include: Issey Miyake (fashion), 1st Hiroshima Art Prize recipient; Robert Rauschenberg, FF Alumn, (fine art), the 2nd Hiroshima Art Prize recipient; Nancy Spero and Leon Golub, FF Alumns, (fine art), the 3rd Hiroshima Art Prize recipients; Krzysztof Wodiczko, FF Alumn, (fine art), the 4th Hiroshima Art Prize; Daniel Libeskind (architecture), the 5th Hiroshima Art Prize recipient; Shirin Neshat, FF Alumn (fine art), the 6th Hiroshima Art Prize recipient; and Cai Guo-Qiang (fine art), the 7th Hiroshima Art Prize recipient.

About Yoko Ono, and Reasons for awarding the Hiroshima Art Prize
Yoko Ono has been active as a creative force for over a half century in various fields as an artist, filmmaker, poet, musician, performance artist and peace activist.

Born in Tokyo in 1933, Ono entered the Philosophy Department of Gakushuin University in 1952. The following year she moved to New York City where she studied music and poetry at Sarah Lawrence College. Soon after, she joined Fluxus, an avant-garde artistic group, where she presented experimental works of art blending forms such as poetry, music, visual arts, film and performance. In 1961, Ono started to exhibit works of art that took the forms of "instructions." These works involved displaying a set of written "instructions," with the objective of inviting the viewers to use their power of imagination and participate actively in the creation of the work of art. In this way, her "instructions" were pioneering works in conceptual art, one of the art trends that emerged from the 1960's. Afterwards, Ono continued to create new forms of artistic expression that used diverse media and were not limited to strict specific genres.

In addition to her activities as an artist, Yoko Ono had been actively involved in pro-peace activities, and after her marriage to John Lennon in 1969, the couple created numerous events supporting world peace and anti-war campaigns. Throughout the 1970's, their messages of peace spread across the globe and became symbolic representations of the international peace movement. Even after the death of John Lennon in 1980, Ono continued to communicate her message of "Love and Peace".

The awarding of the Hiroshima Art Prize to Yoko Ono acknowledges the substantial role her activities have in transmitting the message of the "Spirit of Hiroshima" throughout the entire world.

The 8th Hiroshima Art Prize Commemorative Exhibition
An awards ceremony is scheduled for July 2011 together with an exhibition commemorating the presentation of the award to Yoko Ono at Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art.

It is greatly anticipated that this commemorative exhibition will help communicate, from Hiroshima to the world, the messages of Yoko Ono that are rich with the inspiration of the abolition of nuclear weapons and the creation of a world without war, and it is thought that the exhibition will have a great effect on garnering attention to this Hiroshima Art Prize across the globe.

5. Eidia House, FF Alumns, at Plato’s Cave, Brooklyn, reception Jan. 21

PLATO’S CAVE

An EIDIA HOUSE project

Presenting: Pia Linz

PLATO’S CAVE

An EIDIA HOUSE project Presenting: Pia Linz

January 15 to February 18, 2011

Reception Friday, January 21, 2011, 7 - 9 pm

EIDIA House Studio / 14 Dunham Place / Basement Left (street level doors) / Williamsburg Brooklyn / NY 11211 / 646 945 3830 / eidiahouse@earthlink.net / http://www.eidia.com/

By appointment, 1-6pm Wednesday – Saturday

EIDIA House Studio announces its continuing exhibition initiative, PLATO’S CAVE. The eighth artist in the series, Pia Linz creates an in situ installation entitled: Preparatory Drawing for the Box Engraving: EIDIA House Studio.

For PLATO’S CAVE, EIDIA House founders Paul Lamarre and Melissa P. Wolf invite fellow artists to create an installation and an accompanying edition for the underground space; PLATO’S CAVE.

EIDIA House Studio boldly states that it does not function as an art gallery, but collaborates with the artist to create provocation in art forms, keeping within an ongoing discipline of aesthetic research.

Preparatory Drawing for the Box Engraving: EIDIA House Studio

The phenomenon of individual world perception is the main theme of Pia Linz’s work. View projections and a kind of cartography represent her two main strategies of world appropriation.

In the EIDIA House Studio Linz installs a Platonic Solid on top of a table. During the show she sits inside the plexiglass polyhedron and draws (360°) on the inside walls—everything in view. The drawing, which she develops over a period of about one month, is unremittingly precise and intense. Later, in her studio she renders the drawing permanent by engraving the lines into the plexiglass. In contrast to the panoramas of the 1900’s, in which the observer places himself inside the panorama, here, the locked out observer views the miniature parallel world of the Box Engraving from the outside. The finished Box Engraving will be shown at the open studio event of Triangle Arts Association at the end of March 2011.

Linz’s Plato’s Cave edition, Box Engraving: EIDIA House Studio etching - A Fragmentary Impression, resulting from a three part process, from drawing to etching to print, will be an impression of one triangular panel chosen by the artist from the polyhedron that consists of 20 panels in all. (Available March 2011).

Pia Linz was born in Germany in 1964. She studied at the Staedelschule in Frankfurt/Main, where she received her MA. Today she is based in Berlin. Linz has been awarded many grants. Currently she is in New York with the one-year grant of the Berlin Senate´s Chancellery for Cultural Affairs. EIDIA House is very pleased, that Pia is able to participate in Plato’s Cave during her stay.

"Pia Linz occupies an unmistakable position within contemporary drawing." Andreas Schalhorn

Her works are international represented in many collections, for example the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt, Kupferstichkabinett- Museum for prints in Berlin, Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München, just to name a few.

Barbara Hammer: Experimenting in Life and Art
Los Angeles premieres

Barbara Hammer has made over 80 films in a career that spans 40 years, and is widely celebrated throughout the world as a pioneer of queer cinema. This screening presents the Los Angeles premieres of two of Hammer's recent works: Generations (2010) made with Gina Carducci, a film about the ongoing tradition of personal filmmaking, the last days of Coney Island's legendary Astroland, and the aging of the film medium itself; and A Horse Is Not A Metaphor(2009) with music by Meredith Monk, a richly textured filmic tapestry that reflects upon Hammer's bout with cancer, her return to her experimental filmmaking roots, and her drive to change illness into recovery through travels and pilgrimages in New Mexico, Wyoming and Woodstock. Hammer's book, HAMMER! Making Movies Out of Sex and Life was published last spring, and she was recently given a career retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art.

In person: Barbara Hammer

ARCHITECTURE: JOURNAL OF THE SOCIOLOGY OF SELF-KNOWLEDGE, Volume VIII, Issue 1, Spring 2010, includes my discussion of teaching argumentation to art students while also examining contemporary art production and exhibition within the context of freedom of expression and the law.

The focus is on media reports and court documents from the 1999 court case that involved Rudolph Giuliani, the Brooklyn Museum, and contested works of art by Chris Ofili, Damien Hirst and others.

13. Karen Shaw, FF Alumn, at College of St. Elizabeth, Morristown, NJ, opening Jan. 20

Visual Phrasing Art Exhibition to Open at College of Saint Elizabeth
Thursday, January 20, 2011

MORRISTOWN, N.J. – January XX, 2011 –The public is invited to attend the opening of the art exhibition Visual Phrasing in the Therese A. Maloney Art Gallery, Thursday, January 20, 2011 at a reception for the artists from 4:30 to 7 p.m. The Gallery is located in the Annunciation Center on the campus of the College of Saint Elizabeth (CSE), 2 Convent Road, Morristown, N.J. The event will include the premiere of a piece commissioned from Industry of the Ordinary, a two-person conceptual collective from Chicago, who worked with the regional community and the campus to create a word and image sound sculpture based on the question, "What is normal?" An artists’ panel on the concept of "visual phrasing" will be held from 7 to 8 PM in Dolan Performance Hall immediately following the reception. All are invited.

The exhibition will specifically explore how artists use letters, words, patterns and visual arrangements to create a sense of phrasing in their paintings, sculptures, photographs, collages, prints and digital works. It features the work of visual artists including Jonathan Allmaier (Brooklyn, NY), Patricia Bender (Somerset, NJ), Robert Bohn (Jersey City, NJ), Collette Broeders (Lasalle, Ontario, Canada), Carrie Crow and John Greiner (New York, NY), Bill Davis (Kalamazoo, Michigan), Joseph Farbrook (Worcester, MA), Lesley Flanigan (New York, NY), Adel Gorgy (Baldwin Harbor, NY), Meredith Re' Grimsley (Bloomsburg, PA), Industry of the Ordinary (Adam Brooks and Mathew Wilson) (Chicago, IL), Marty Jonas (Benicia, CA), Patti Jordan (Montclair, NJ), Meg Klim (JerseyCity, NJ), Liz Lee (Lake View, NY), So Yoon Lym (North Haledon, NJ), Claire Marcus (Bethlehem, PA), Christina Massey (Brooklyn, NY), Gail Morrison-Hall (Maple Glen, PA), Jen Pepper (Cazenovia. NY), Tristan Perich (New York, NY), Mary Pinto (Sunnyside, NY), Debra Ramsay (New York, NY), Susan Reedy (East Amherst, NY), Rocco Scary (North Caldwell, NJ), Karen Shaw (New York, NY), Sam Smith (New York, NY), Jamie Marie Waelchli (Portland, OR), Ken Weathersby (Montclair, NJ), Mark Wojcik (Mahwah, NJ), Jing Zhou (Long Branch, NJ), Sue Zwick (Summit, NJ)

It will be open free of charge through April 17, 2011, on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 2 to 7 p.m., Saturday and Monday from 2 to 5 p.m. The Gallery is closed on Fridays, Sundays and CSE holidays.

Visual Phrasing is part of a four-pronged project combining art, music, dance and poetry collectively called The Phrase in Art. It is funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), a public agency dedicated to supporting excellence in the arts, bringing the arts to all Americans, and providing leadership in arts education. From January to April 2011, The Phrase in Art will present a series of events using the concept of the phrase as creative inspiration in various art forms. Other components of the program are Phrase into Motion, an innovative dance performance on a date in April as yet to be announced; From Phrase to Music, a concert of contemporary music, Tuesday, March 22; and The Phrase in Poetry, a poetry reading by Mark Doty to explore the creative importance of the phrase in poetry, Monday, March 28.

"The College is grateful to the NEA for its vision, recognition, and support of this project," says Dr. Butera, who was invited by the NEA to apply for the grant. "Since the Annunciation Center opened with the

Maloney Art Gallery and Dolan Performance Hall, we have been able to create innovative, multi-disciplinary programs that explore intellectual ideas and the artistic experience in ways that larger museums and galleries are unable to do. The CSE art exhibitions and cultural programs are often based on the curricula and events on campus that re-enforce the important role that the arts play in daily life and also reflect the College’s emphasis on liberal arts education. The Phrase in Art is another example of this effort."
