1. Elana Katz, FF Fund recipient 2010-11, at Abramović Studio at Location One, Manhattan, May 19
COLOR ME CLEAR
Durational performance by Elana Katz
Curated by Jovana Stokić
Abramović Studio at Location One
May 19, 2011
3 – 6 pm: the artist works in solitude
6 – 9 pm: performance is open to the public
Location One hosts COLOR ME CLEAR, a new work by Berlin / New York based performance artist Elana Katz, funded by Franklin Furnace Archive, New York.
COLOR ME CLEAR examines the cross-cultural practice of painting the face, as well as the medium of painting vs. live art that incorporates the body of the artist. The artist paints her face heavily with make-up. The paint from the face is then transferred onto another surface, into another form, repeatedly. The work challenges the capabilities of the face, as the face is used both as a platform to receive paint (a facade on which an image is created) and as a tool for transferring paint (an object with which another image is created). The intrigue of the piece lies, perhaps, in the abstraction that takes place, in the distance that exists between these two functions of the face.

The performance begins in a private context. As the artist works in a contained space, the audience is absent. The performance will then move into direct contact with the public, and the audience will be led to participate in an intimate way.

This performance work was made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Major support of the Franklin Furnace Fund was provided in 2010-11 by the Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation.

Elana Katz is an American artist currently based in Berlin and New York. Her work most often confronts cultural conventions, critically examines the complexity that lies within contradictions, and thus aims to create an experience of unlearning the assumed. Her recent grants have included the DAAD Graduate Studies Grant (2010) and the Franklin Furnace Fund (2011). She participated as a re-performer at Marina Abramović’s retrospective at MoMA in New York, and has exhibited/performed internationally, including the Freies Museum of Berlin (Germany), Envoy Gallery of New York (US), Content at Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (Japan), and Musée Royaux des Beaux Arts de Belgique (Belgium).

Location One is based in the Soho arts district of New York. Location One is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to fostering new forms of creative expression and cultural exchange through exhibitions, residencies, performances, public lectures and workshops. Traditionally focused on technological experimentation and new media, Location One’s residencies and programs have favored social and political discourse and dialogue, and acted as a catalyst for collaborations. With a unique environment providing individualized training, support, and guidance to each artist, as well as exposure for their creations and collaborations, Location One continues to nurture the spirit of experimentation that it considers the cornerstone of its mission.

The Marina Abramović Studio is a space within Location One dedicated to the ongoing performance series of long-durational works focusing on open-ended forms of workshops, panels and discussions. It includes resident artists at the Location One as well as a larger community of artists and thinkers interested in the development of performance art as practiced by the pioneer of performance art Marina Abramović for almost four decades. "The laboratory approach" of the Marina Abramović Studio has the goal of supporting the growth of performance art by promoting the works of emerging artists on an international scale, organizing and collaborating on events using a network of people converging at Location One. It shows the commitment to experimentation across all art forms and points to recent efforts to return performance art to its central position within the gallery system. All programs are curated by Jovana Stokić.

3. Liliana Porter, FF Alumn, at The New Museum, Manhattan, May 11-July 3

Museum as Hub: The Incongruous Image: Marcel Broodthaers and Liliana Porter
May 11–July 3, 2011
New Museum
Reflecting upon the Museum as Hub as a space for experimentation and inquiry rather than a space of classic exhibition, this project stages an unusual dialogue between works by Marcel Broodthaers (b. 1924, Brussels, d. 1976, Cologne) and Liliana Porter (b. Buenos Aries, 1941) to highlight several points of common interest, or philosophical accords, that explore the politics of knowledge, pedagogy, and display. The title "The Incongruous Image" explores how Broodthaers and Porter each combine visual elements in ways that do not easily fit together. Both artists construct enigmatic and contradictory images, which often function as riddles or jokes, through directly challenging the viewer to discern, or even produce, their meanings. Both bodies of work engage found and mass-produced images or objects, structuring them in ways that involve juxtaposition, sequencing, and repetitions. In doing so, Broodthaers and Porter draw us into their artworks through clever manipulations of our expectations; through their use of surprise, clichés, and humor, they implicate us within their investigations. As the second part of "The Accords" project, "The Incongruous Image" is part response, part elaboration, and part critique of the first exhibition "An accord is first and foremost only a proposition," organized by Hub partner Sarah Rifky of the Townhouse Gallery, Cairo.

"The Incongruous Image" is organized by guest curators Annie Fletcher, Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, and Tobias Ostrander, Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico City.

About the Museum as Hub
The Museum as Hub is a partnership of six international arts organizations that supports art activities and experimentation; explores artistic, curatorial, and institutional practice; and serves as an important resource for the public to learn about contemporary art from around the world.

8. Dan Kwong, FF Alumn, at Highways, Santa Monica, CA, May 13, 14
DAN KWONG and IU-HUI CHUA present "ONCE WE WANTED"
A new interdisciplinary multimedia performance at Highways

Award-winning performance artist Dan Kwong and critically-acclaimed Bay Area dancer/choreographer Iu-Hui Chua collaborate on an exploration of the question, "What does it mean to truly be with somebody?" Chua and Kwong create a dynamic collage of intimate personal reflections and social commentary as they engage their theme on a variety of levels: emotional, intellectual, physical, cosmic, and spiritual. Utilizing an array of genres - monologue, dance, poetry, martial arts, video projection, puppetry, song, and even some onstage internet surfing – Kwong and Chua unveil striking stage imagery as they poke ample fun at how something so simple and basic becomes so complicated and elusive. ONCE WE WANTED is by turns wryly philosophical, emotionally raw, delightfully humorous, and ultimately hopeful.

Dan Kwong is a Resident Artist at the 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica.

SculptureCenter

Long Island City, New York
718.361.1750
info@sculpture-center.org
www.sculpturecenter.org

Exhibition hours:
Thursday–Monday, 11am–6pm

SculptureCenter is pleased to present Time Again, an exhibition that explores the language of repetition, bringing together works that destabilize conventional ways of seeing and considering what is past and what is present. Engaging gesture, image sequence, material affect, and displaced narrative, the works on view create disjunctions with the way the time of the present is experienced, challenging our understanding of what it means to be contemporaries. Time Again is curated by Fionn Meade.

Within the exhibition, archival and historical settings are re-animated only to be undone, including William E. Jones’s video Berlin Flash Frames, 2010, which parcels out footage from an unedited film produced by the U.S. Information Agency found in the National Archives of the United States labeled with the provisional title "Berlin, 1961." Jones’s re-edit features distanced shots of the Berlin Wall under construction alongside propagandistic scenarios featuring actors on stage sets. Similarly, Emily Roysdon's Untitled (David Wojnarowicz Project), 2001–2007, responds to and redirects Wojnarowicz’s earlier work Arthur Rimbaud in New York, 1978-79, while an excerpt from Marc Camille Chaimowicz's Shoe Waste?, 1971–2005, returns to documentation of a clandestine action performed above and beneath the River Thames in London.

Additional works to be exhibited include a new sculpture by Rachel Harrison, Avatar, 2010; Ull Hohn's series of plaster relief paintings, Untitled, 1988; Thea Djordjadze’s Deaf and dumb universe (Gerüst), 2008; and Troy Brauntuch’s Stamps, 1975–2007, which gathers together the artist’s collection of figurative rubber stamps that have been used in his collages over the past thirty years. Also on view will be sculpture, collage, and video works from Rosemarie Trockel, including Goodbye Mrs. Mönipaer, 2003, a cinematic pantomime that explores the psychologically fraught role-playing that can emerge between artists and gallerists, studio and market concerns, and private and public selves.

The performing body and political subject present themselves throughout the exhibition via acts of estrangement, reversal, ritualized behavior, and fragmentation. Manon de Boer's film Attica, 2008, for example, captures a refracted consideration of the 1971 prison uprising in the form of a musical performance, while Rosalind Nashashibi's This Quality, 2010, offers an indirect view of Cairo through tightly framed observations of likeness and variation. Matthew Buckingham’s Image of Absalon to be Projected Until It Vanishes, 2001, addresses a public that may no longer exist in a fragmented portrait of the Danish warrior-bishop and quasi-mythic founder of the city of Copenhagen. Similarly, the place of abstraction reasserts a longstanding dialog with the place of iconography through modes of projection, superimposition, doubling, and associative image sequences in works by Richard Aldrich, Moyra Davey, Charline von Heyl, Elad Lassry, and Blinky Palermo.

Also included within Time Again is a presentation of works organized in collaboration with Novel, a project founded by London-based editors and curators Matt Williams and Alun Rowlands. A publication project that takes up experimental writing as a parallel practice to visual art making, Novel draws on politics, poetry, theory, and storytelling to promote explorations of language and the possibility of a new critical fiction.

Time Again is accompanied by an illustrated catalog published by SculptureCenter. For an updated schedule of exhibition related programs please visit our website.
