chashama presents
ODD FAÇADE: A Twist on Pop Up Shops

The creation of a fictional organization known as the Society for Self Surveillance from March 25th through 29th, will question whether pervasive surveillance in New York is a true threat to liberty, or an over-extended farce. Organized by Bay Area based artist Doug Garth Williams, the organization seeks to pose the questions, "Are surveillance cameras the chilling Orwellian eyes of authority or are they modern day gargoyles designed to invoke the idea of security without really providing it? Is it a little bit of both?"

In the current economic climate businesses have popularized the phenomenon of the "pop up shop", wherein a storefront is obtained by a business to be used for a limited period of time for a narrowly targeted release or marketing campaign. Arts organizations have increasingly been catching onto this trend by displaying art in available storefronts. Williams aims to put a spin on the pop up shop phenomenon by capitalizing on the particular nature and public perception of these open storefronts: Namely the fact that these are commercial spaces, which the public naturally expect to see occupied by traditional businesses of some description. Rather than repurposing these spaces as short-term art galleries, his goal is to create art projects that initially appear to actually be legitimate operating businesses or organizations.

The chashama windows space at 266 W. 37th street in Manhattan is an ideal fit with this project. With its large glass storefront at 37th Street and 8th Avenue, it has high visibility and every desirable feature needed to help set the stage. The project will create posters, advertisements, a promotional video, and occupy the storefront with custom signage. Acting as the public face of the organization, Williams will deliver in-character weekday public lectures on how to keep oneself under constant surveillance in order to increase public safety.

It is essential that this project does not explicitly announce itself as art. The intention is to design a project that will be discovered by a variety of people going about their daily lives. Williams believes that when these materials are discovered there is a crucial moment of puzzlement and uncertainty on the part of the viewer. They are confronted with a storefront boasting all the trappings of a functional organization, but on closer examination it seems to have ambiguous and unusual goals. The idea is to create deadpan materials and performances convincing enough to suspend, for longer than usual, that period of instructive uncertainty.

M. Kasper’s latest, "Open-Book," is now available from Brooklyn’s Ugly Duckling Presse (http://www.uglyducklingpresse.org/catalog/browse/item/?pubID=108). It’s an accordion-fold, eleven five-line observations on the history and significance of marble revetments, an ancient and still-prevalent form of interior décor. The texts in "Open-Book" float on marble simulations made using the drawing and filtering functions of photo-manipulation software.

8. Julie Tolentino, FF Alumn, at LGBT Center, Manhattan, opening March 19

Julie Tolentino, FF Alumn, in Intersecting Identities: Women Artists of New York exhibit at the LGBT Center in the West Village. The show will open on March 19th, 2011 with an opening reception from 6:30 to 8pm.

INTERSECTING IDENTITIES at the New York LGBT Center: 208 W. 13th Street NYC

An Exhibition Open to All Self-Identified Women Artists in New York
Opening Reception March 19th, 2011, up through May 31st.

In recognition of Women’s History Month we want to celebrate the contribution of New York’s women artists with an exhibition honoring our creative power. As women we inhabit intersecting, often conflicting, identities. Our creative expression is informed by our unique experiences as women, as members of varying classes, races, sexualities, as mothers, daughters and lovers, as New Yorkers and as artists. The show will examine how New York’s women artists channel these themes through their work, and, by exhibiting a variety of lived realities, will attempt to provide insight into the lives of women today.

12. Rob Andrews, FF Alumn, at MoMA, Manhattan, March 24-25

Friends,

I've been invited to contribute two new works to Flux This at the Museum of Modern Art. This is a one of the kind two-day event. Please be sure to buy tickets for the Friday night programming in advance, as there is a likelihood that it will sell out.

The details:

Thursday, March 24th
My first work, Be Void will be presented between 4-6pm in the Mezzanine of The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building. This work will occur concurrent to the open rehearsal for Friday Night's Flux This event. Please stop by to contribute some of your energy and spirit to this work.

Friday, March 25th
There will be performances throughout the day - starting at noon - larger scale works by the artists participating in the Flux This evening programming.

My piece, Void Door for Ben Vautier for Yves Klein begins at noon as well, when I begin walking a door to the museum from the ocean. The conclusion of the work will occur during the Flux This event which begins at 6:30pm and requires tickets for entry.

If you have interest in traveling part or all of the way to the Museum with me from the ocean, contact me by email and I will you with provide my itinerary and path.

This will be an incredible evening of performances. Please buy your tickets early.

http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/events/11967

There will be information at the lobby of the museum as to the exact location of the performances. I believe the actual entrance to the mezzanine may be from 54th street. My additional understanding is that you should be able to enter the mezzanine without paying for entry to the museum. Look for signs in the main lobby, or ask someone at the desk if it's not clear.

Please forward to anyone who you feel might be interested. For more info on Fluxus, go here.

Best Regards,
Rob
