4. Robbin Ami Silverberg, FF ALumn, at Yale University, New Haven, CT, Sept. 6-December 16, and mmore

I have several artist books and a new installation, "Anamnesis: 9/11" in an exhibition at Yale University, Special Collections, Haas Family Arts Library. September 6 - December 16, 2011.

On Sept. 22nd at 5:30 pm there will be an artists' panel in conjunction to the 9/11 exhibitions at Yale, with Nathan Lyons, Leo Rubenfien, Judith Shea, & Robbin Ami Silverberg,

The Book as Memorial: Book Artists Respond to and Remember 9/11
Ten years have passed since the tragedy that occurred on September 11, 2001, in several locations on the East Coast of the United States. People in all parts of the country were affected and many of them looked for ways to respond. This exhibition shows art work created by artists in response to the events of that fateful day. Specifically, this exhibition focuses on works that memorialize the people lost and the indescribable sense that we, as a people, also lost something more intangible. Some might call it a sense of innocence, others might call it a sense of safety, but few Americans would deny that the world felt changed after that day. Using the book format, these artists have given form to these difficult thoughts and emotions to share with a wider audience and to help us remember.

The exhibition includes work by: Art of the Book program (Art School, Pratt Institute), Maureen Cummins, Mimi Gross & Charles Bernstein (Granary Books), Kate Ferrucci (People to People Press), Emily Martin (Naughty Dog Press), Mac McGill (Booklyn Artists Alliance), Sara Parkel (Filter Press), Werner Pfeiffer (Pear Whistle Press), Maria G. Pisano (Memory Press), Otis Rubottom, Sibyl Rubottom & Jim Machacek (Bay Park Press), Rocco Scary, Gaylord Schanilec & Richard Goodman (Midnight Paper Sales), Robbin Ami Silverberg (Dobbin Books), Patricia M. Smith (P.S. Press), Gail Watson (Zuni Press), Marshall Weber (Booklyn Artists Alliance), Pamela S. Wood (Rarehare Creations), J. Meejin Yoon (Printed Matter & Whitney Museum of American Art).

6. Eve Andrée Laramée, Jenny Polak, Dread Scott, Adele Judith Ursone, Micki Watanabe Spiller, FF Alumns, at BRIC Rotunda Gallery, Brooklyn, NY, Sept. 15-Oct. 29

30: A Brooklyn Salon
Celebrating Thirty Years of Contemporary Art September 15 – October 29, 2011 Opening Reception: September 14, 2011, 7 – 9PM Curated by Elizabeth Ferrer, Director of Contemporary Art BRIC Rotunda Gallery, 33 Clinton Street, Brooklyn Heights Website: bricartsmedia.org

30: A Brooklyn Salon has been organized to celebrate BRIC Rotunda Gallery’s status as Brooklyn’s oldest continuously operating contemporary art space and to offer a look back at the wealth of artists who shaped the character of our exhibition program over three decades. With work by some 50 Brooklyn-affiliated artists, the exhibition presents a diverse segment of the nearly 1,500 artists who have exhibited at the Gallery and contributed to BRIC’s history. 30 includes work spanning a range of media: painting, works on paper, sculpture, photography, video, and a site-specific commission on the gallery’s storefront by Jackie Chang.

With its breadth and dense installation addressing such varied themes as place, process, materiality, and abstraction, 30 evokes the contemporary art landscape of Brooklyn. The exhibition distinguishes BRIC Rotunda Gallery as an artist-centered space, where curatorial ideas are sparked by the art

discovered in studios across the borough and in our registry, and where young artists have found a resourceful platform to present new work.

Artists include: Leslie Alexander, A. Eric Arctander, Kamrooz Aram, Daniel Bejar, Francisca Benitez, Phong Bui, Joel Carreiro, Jackie Chang, Vincent Cianni, Amy Cutler, Blane De St. Croix, Elizabeth Demaray, Melissa Dubbin & Aaron S. Davidson, Yvonne Estrada, Linda Ganjian, Anthony Goicolea, LeRoy Henderson, Gilbert Hsiao, Katarina Jerinic, Aaron Johnson, Eve Andrée Laramée, William Lamson, Kristin Lucas, Despo Magoni, Walter Martin & Paloma Muñoz, Mary Mattingly, Marci McGuffie, Lori Nix, Patrick O’Hare, Alex O’Neal, Karyn Olivier, Carolanna Parlato, Dulce Pinzón, Jenny Polak, Larry Racioppo, Ray Rapp, Zoë Sheehan Saldaña, Juan Sánchez, Charles Schucker, Dread Scott, Lizzie Scott, Ward Shelley, Diana Shpungin, Peter Simensky, Eugenie Tung, Adele Judith Ursone, Micki Watanabe Spiller, Dale E.

History is a lens through which we see the present. But what history defines which present? Algus Greenspon presents an exhibition of Romantic, Symbolist and Pre-Raphaelite painting, drawing, photography and sculpture set alongside work by contemporary artists. These 19th Century art and literary movements is the cauldron from which Modernity comes. Radical and reactionary, they dispose a consuming sensibility, rendering the prosaic sentient and marvelous.

10. Brad Buckley, Paul Lamarre, Melissa Wolf (EIDIA), FF Alumns, at Plato’s Cave, Brooklyn, opening Sept. 10

Brad Buckley opens at Plato's Cave Saturday, Sept. 10, 1-6

PLATO’S CAVE
Presenting: Brad Buckley
An EIDIA HOUSE project
September 10 to October 8, 2011
Opens to public September 10, 2011, 1-6pm 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 ninth artist in the series, Brad Buckley creates an in situ installation entitled: Manifest Destiny?

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.

"Buckley’s works operate within an overarching schema entitled The Slaughterhouse Project, which, a bit like Yves Klein blue, is an aesthetic armature, a strategy used for aesthetic infiltration, or infection. As the name implies, the Project is a conceptual device of cauterization, a way of exploring taboos, for investigating political anomalies, for venting dissatisfaction with social injustice." Dr Adam Geczy

Manifest Destiny?
The term Manifest Destiny was first used in the 1800s and was the philosophical basis on which the US expanded ‘democratic’ institutions across North America. Of course it raises a series of questions about whether these territories and people wished to be annexed by the US. Manifest Destiny? is a text based neon work created especially for Plato’s Cave, which continues Buckley’s conversation about the larger questions: aesthetics, culture, economics, ideology, power, space, spectatorship, technology and time.

Brad Buckley is an artist, urbanist and Professor of Contemporary Art and Culture at Sydney College of the Arts, the University of Sydney. He was educated at St Martin’s School of Art, London, and the Rhode Island School of Design. He is the editor, with John Conomos, of Republics of Ideas (2001) and Rethinking the Contemporary Art School: The Artist, the PhD, and the Academy (2009).

His work, which operates at the intersection of installation, theatre and performance, investigates questions of cultural control, democracy, freedom and social responsibility. Buckley’s work has been included in the 3rd International Biennial (Ljubljana), the 4th Construction in Process (the Artists' Museum, Lodz, Poland) and the 9th Biennale of Sydney, and in exhibitions at Franklin Furnace (New York), the Kunstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin), the Visual Arts Gallery (University of Alabama at Birmingham) and La Chambre Blanche (Quebec). In October 2009, Buckley was a Visiting Scholar at The New School (New York).

For his Plato’s Cave edition, Manifest Destiny? is a print edition of eighty (80) with ten (10) artists’ proofs using embossed and letterpress text. The edition is printed on 280 gsm Dogget Concept Velum paper. Each print is signed and dated by the artist.

13. RENO, FF Alumn, at Dixon Place, Manhattan, Sept. 11

Reno was awakened on September 11th, 2001 by the impact of the first plane crash, just blocks from her loft. She became the first artist to publicly exorcise her conflicted experiences with audiences looking for words to describe their own confusion. Constantly changing as events happen, RENO: REBEL WITHOUT A PAUSE was an extremely emotional work - stirring and wickedly funny.

17. Stefanie Trojan, FF Alumn, at Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, Germany, opening Sept. 16

Frischzelle_15: Stefanie Trojan
17 September - 16 October 2011

Opening of the exhibition on Friday, 16 September,
7 p.m. with a performance by Stefanie Trojan from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Every culture develops rituals, habits, and complex models of social behavior. Artist Stefanie Trojan (b. 1976 in Neu Ulm, Germany) investigates such traditional norms in her performances as she carries out actions that consciously break the rules of interpersonal communication. In this way, she asks viewers to consider the familiar from a new perspective: »I don’t work with pictures, but with experience«, Stefanie Trojan explains about her performative approach. Here she allows the audience to play an essential role in the resulting performance, as it is audience members’ reactions to the irritating and provoking actions that complete the experiments she initiates.

We would like to thank the accounting firm KPMG AG for their support of this project.

Money Matters @NYPL: The Secret Life of Money: Design, Composition, and Covert Facts

Tuesday, September 6, 2011
6:30 PM
St. George Library Center
5 Central Avenue
Staten Island, NY 10301

Harley Spiller, Senior Educator for The Museum of American Finance, a Smithsonian affiliate, shares his knowledge of the history of paper money in the United States of America. Covering a swath of continental fiscal history, from Ben Franklin to Ben Bernanke, Spiller leads a hands-on exploration of the physical characteristics of greenbacks. Spiller regales audiences with surprising and true stories, like the one about the bank manager who threw away hundreds of dollars in dumpsters every year – and was rewarded for doing so. Why did our founding fathers selected the color green? You know why there are thirteen olive leaves, thirteen arrows and thirteen layers in the pyramid but why is there a 14th star? Join Spiller on this fascinating exploration of the mysteries behind seemingly-ordinary greenbacks and shares his extraordinary collection of rare and unusual government misprints, offbeat bills, exonumia, and more.

Works on view will consist of nine new photo/text works created since 2008, and two early photo/text works, Alchemy, from 1973 and My Authentic Self from 1974.

New York Times critic Holland Cotter, in reviewing a 2008 exhibition of Martha Wilson’s early work, described her as one of "the half-dozen most important people for art in downtown Manhattan in the 1970s." In Moira Roth’s introduction to the Martha Wilson Sourcebook: 40 Years of Reconsidering Performance, Feminism, Alternative Spaces, being published this fall by Independent Curators International, he adds: "Wilson is a wonderful artist, whose smart and witty 1970s photographic self-portraits in various ‘feminine’ guises— passive beauty, punk upstart—helped very early on (way before Cindy Sherman) to demonstrate that the gendered roles we play are largely invented for us. It's the artist's job to take charge of that invention so that we see it in action, which Wilson did in those amazing and still-under known pictures."

Martha Wilson is Founding Director of Franklin Furnace Archive, Inc., a museum she established in her TriBeCa storefront loft in lower Manhattan which, since its inception in 1976, has presented and preserved temporal art: artists’ books and other multiples produced internationally after 1960; temporary installations; and performance art. Franklin Furnace "went virtual" on its 20th anniversary, taking the Internet as its art medium and public venue to give artists the freedom of expression they had enjoyed in the loft in the 70s. Ms. Wilson lectures widely on the book as an art form, on performance art, and on "variable media art."

Martha Wilson is trained in English Literature and was teaching at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design when she became fascinated by artworks created at the intersection of text and image. In New York, she founded DISBAND, the all-girl punk band of artists who couldn’t play any instruments. Since DISBAND disbanded in 1982, she has performed in the guises of Alexander Haig, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, and Tipper Gore. In the spring of 2008, she had her first solo exhibition in New York at Mitchell Algus Gallery, Martha Wilson: Photo/Text Works, 1971-1974.

In an essay published in Camera Obscura in 2001, Art Historian Jayne Wark writes, "In her conceptually based performance, video and photo-text works, Wilson masqueraded as a man in drag, roamed the streets with her face painted red, catalogued her various body parts, manipulated her appearance with makeup, and explored the effects of ‘camera presence’ in self-representation. Although this work was made in isolation from any feminist community, it has been seen to contribute significantly to what would become one of feminism's most enduring preoccupations: the investigation of identity and embodied subjectivity."

Upcoming Exhibition: Katherine Kuharic, Pound of Flesh, October 13 - November 12
