COLLECTIVE / PERFORMATIVE
March 24 - May 19, 2012
Opening reception, Friday, March 23, 2012 / 7-9PM

NEW YORK - Exit Art is pleased to present Collective / Performative, an exhibition and event series focusing on performance practices that require the participation of an audience. The exhibition will include new works by commissioned artists and organizations that will utilize Exit Art's space during gallery hours for a public project, as well as an "artists' history" of performance told by seminal performance artists who have exhibited at Exit Art. A research exhibition that explores the history of collective practices, the exhibition also investigates the importance of the viewer/audience in achieving the work's goals and the role that documentation and new technologies play in the formation of collective strategies.

This exhibition responds to the abundance of recent attention given to performance art and specifically to the shifting terms used to define viewer engagement: "collaborative," "relational," "participatory," and "delegated" to name a few. From the Performa Biennial to Creative Time's "Living as Form" to the increased offerings of academic degrees in performance art and curatorial practice, Collective / Performative interrogates potential new performance structures and forms as investigated by artists and organizations.

Collective / Performative is comprised of two parts: eight newly commissioned, performance works that require viewer participation and an "artists' history" of performance art. Exit Art has invited artists, alternative spaces, a blog on contemporary art and culture, and a curatorial collective to organize "performative" projects at Exit Art for the duration of one week each, providing many with the opportunity to work in a collective manner for the first time. Participants will utilize the space during gallery hours as an office, studio, hub, production center, exhibition, presentation, and/or rehearsal space, and are encouraged to end their weeklong residency with a culminating event or performance. The artists' history of performance art consists of more than one dozen interviews with artists on their influences and work, and elaborates on the historical precedents, concepts, and themes that have shaped collective practices in contemporary performa nce.

In the spirit of Exit Art's extensive history of showcasing "live" art, and presenting such historical performance exhibitions as "Tehching Hsieh, One-Year Performance 1981-1982" (1983), "Let the Artist Live!" (1994), "Endurance" (1995), "Body and the East" (2001) and "Regina José Galindo" (2009), we view Collective / Performative in a spirit particular to Exit Art: one that embodies both curatorial experimentation and the offering of new creative opportunities. This exhibition will run concurrently with Every Exit is an Entrance: 30 Years of Exit Art, which together comprise the final exhibitions at Exit Art before its closure on June 1, 2012.

Collective / Performative was conceived by Jeanette Ingberman and Papo Colo and is curated by Rachel Gugelberger, Senior Curator, and Lauren Rosati, Assistant Curator, with Verity Combe, Curatorial Assistant.

Microscope Gallery

We Are Cinema
50 Years of the Film-Makers' Co-op
February 11 through March 5

We Are Cinema is a month-long exhibit and screening series celebrating 50 years of the Film-Makers' Co-op in NYC. It was in January of 1962 that filmmaker Jonas Mekas called an urgent meeting of about 20 avant-garde/independent filmmakers including Stan Vanderbeek, Rudy Burckhardt, Jack Smith, Ken Jacobs, and Gregory Markopoulos to discuss taking the means of exhibition and distribution into their own hands. Within months the Film-Makers' Co-op was born. Under the stewardship of filmmaker MM Serra since 1991, the organization is now the oldest and largest artist-run cooperative in the world and membership continues to be open to anyone with a film or video work.

We Are Cinema features paintings, drawings, prints, light boxes, and other artworks from the group's earliest to most recent members. Additionally, rare early documents, posters, catalogues, archival materials and historical sound recordings will also on exhibit.

Artists in the exhibition include: Katherine Bauer, Bill Brand, Robert Breer, Rudy Burckhardt, Donna Cameron, Abigail Child, Martha Colburn, Bradley Eros, Su Friedrich, Ken Jacobs, Sabrina Gschwandtner, Anne Hanavan, Takahiko Iimura, Jeanne Liotta, Jonas Mekas, Julie Murray, Jennifer Reeves, Barbara Rubin, Carolee Schneemann, Joel Schlemowitz, MM Serra, Jack Smith, Smith and Lowles, Mark Street, Jack Waters & Peter Cramer, and others.

The Film-Makers' Co-op continues to operate as a vibrant archive and distributor, housing more than 5,000 films and videos by over 900 artists. It is now located at 475 Park Ave South in Manhattan. To schedule a press screening, or for further information about the Co-op and film rentals please contact the Co-op at filmmakerscoop@gmail.com or visit their website www.film-makerscoop.com.
Events start on Saturday February 11, at 5PM - just prior to the official exhibition opening - with the first screening of restored, fresh-from-the-lab 16mm prints of rare short works by legendary filmmaker/artist Jack Smith (Respectable Creatures, Song for Rent, Hot Air Specialists, Overstimulated, Scotch Tape, and Yellow Sequence), all new editions to the Co-op's distribution. Original founding director Jonas Mekas and current director MM Serra will introduce the works. The four-part screening series continues with unique programs by Ken Jacobs (2/18), Jonas Mekas (2/25), and a group show of recent editions to the Co-op's collection (3/4). Seating is limited. Please RSVP to rsvp@microscopegallery.com.

Microscope Gallery is dedicated to presenting the works of film, video, sound, performance and new media artists through exhibitions and a weekly event series. Since its opening in September 2010, the gallery has held 13 exhibits and more than 90 screenings, music, performance and other events. Microscope seeks to dissolve the barriers between the white walls of the gallery and the black box of the theater. It is located in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn.

6. Eleanor Antin, Heather Cassils, Andy Warhol, Hannah Wilke, FF Alumns, at Ronald Feldman Gallery, Manhattan, opening Feb. 18

Have We Met Before?

Artists: Eleanor Antin | Chris Burden | Lynda Benglis | Heather Cassils | Marcel Duchamp | Yishay Garbasz | Detlef Henrichs | Christopher Makos | Man Ray | Andy Warhol | Hannah Wilke | Gil Yefman | Rona Yefman
February 18 - March 24, 2012

Have We Met Before? Ronald Feldman Gallery brings together several generations of artists working in sculpture, video, photography, and mixed-media who explore the complex connection between body and self-identity.
Several of the thirteen artists directly alter their bodies to address issues of gender. In her work Becoming (2008-2010), Yishay Garbasz chronicles the changes in her body before and after "gender clarification surgery." In Eat Me Damien (2010), Garbasz displays her formaldehyde protected testicles removed during surgery. A video and photographs from Garbasz's The Numbers Project (2011) reveal the artist using branding irons to sear her mother's tattooed Auschwitz identification number into her own arm, thereby passing a fading memory from mother to daughter. In Carving: A Traditional Sculpture (1972), Eleanor Antin photographed her body from four vantage points every morning for 37 days while on a restrictive diet to address societal pressures and question standards of beauty. Artist, stunt person, and body builder, Heather Cassils, in her works Fast Twitch / Slow Twitch (2011), Advertisement: Homage to Benglis (also by Robin Black 2011), and Body Composition (2011), makes evident the extreme efforts necessary to achieve her exaggerated muscular physique which she uses to "interrogate systems of power, control and gender."

Other artists use drag and ambiguity to confront the rigidity of society's concepts of gender. A reproduction of the famous Man Ray photograph of Marcel Duchamp's alter ego Rrose Sélavy proclaims "such is life." Photographs by Christopher Makos include Altered Image in which Andy Warhol, inspired by Duchamp, role-plays in drag. Lynda Benglis challenges the male ethos in an Artforum advertisement (Paula Cooper Gallery, 1974) in which she boldly holds a dildo to her naked body, thus embodying both sexes.
Photos and videos from Rona Yefman's series Marth A Bouke intimately portrays Tel Aviv based Martha Bouke, an 80 year old holocaust survivor and grandfather, who has earnestly adopted, mentally and physically, a female persona. Martha, who wears a plastic mask and blond wig, challenges traditional notions of eroticism and familial structures, age expectations, and gender norms. Her series My Brother and I (1996 - 2009) captures the complexity of adolescence and self-realization, documenting her relationship with her younger brother, Gil Yefman, who transitions from man to woman, and thereafter back to a man. Gil Yefman's hanging knit sculpture Blood Moon (2010), conceptualized while reading Rainer Maria Rilke's "Letters to a Young Poet," parallels the possibility and nature of male menstruation and birthing through the creation of an artwork, with the fullness of the female period and birthing. His knit sculpture Breakfast Hat (2007) addresses contemporary overabundance.

Other works are a response to involuntary physical changes that have greatly altered lives or nature. In his series Narben, Detlef Henrichs, left catastrophically burned after a paint and gas explosion in 1971 at the age of 10, captures the psychological and physical impact endured by burn survivors. Paralleling these portraits are photographs taken from German National Parks depicting the results of dieback, the gradual disfiguration and death of trees caused by acid rain and other environmental factors. Photos from Chris Burden's Dreamy Nights (1974) show the artist writhing on the floor as burning Spiritus, representing destructive Medieval weapons, overflows onto his body. INTRA-VENUS (1992-93), Hannah Wilke's last work, records the realities of her physical transformation while battling Lymphoma. In addition to photographs, works include Brushstroke (1992), composed of hair lost during radiation and chemo treatment, and Why Not Sneeze (1992), a reference to Duchamp's Why Not Sneeze, Rrose Sélavy? (1921) composed of plastic prescription bottles stuffed in a bird cage.

There will be an opening reception February 18: 6 - 8. Gallery hours are Tuesday - Saturday,

BREAKING IN TWO is the first comprehensive exhibition of work by women artists who are mothers where the work itself integrates the maternal experience, the relationship to the body, the child, the family, and the society at large. The exhibition, which is part of Pacific Standard Time, will feature a multi‐cultural group of four generations of nationally and internationally recognized artist‐mothers selected to represent the multi‐faceted and changing realities of motherhood. The exhibition includes painting, drawing, sculpture, collage and assemblage, installation, photography, film/video, poetry/writing and performance. Curator Bruria Finkel, herself an artist, asserts that "the subject of motherhood was taboo in the art world in the 70s; women artists were advised not to disclose their motherhood status for it might interfere with their ability to progress in the art world."

Becoming Green in the Bronx
Round table discussion

I will be presenting a very special round table on Monday Feb 13. at the Bronx River Art Center at 6 pm. My project "Becoming Green in the Bronx" deals with encounters between people and civic engagement. It is a project that looks into current Bronx initiatives reshaping the surrounding environment into sustainable living practices. Attendees are invited to the round table to discuss these developments, expand and constructively criticize them. The aim is help to build on these current initiatives and make them Bronx wide. At the round table's close, the ideas brainstormed will be culminated into a public letter that will be sent to city council members and community board representatives.
It is a part of Shifting Communities, a project that offers services to the Bronx community by supporting advanced contemporary art by local artists, collectives and various community groups. Shifting Communities operates multifold: as a roundtable brainstorming series for students, artists and local residents; as a platform for professional artist development and community development through the arts; as a curatorial/exhibition initiative; and as Bronxcentric social sculpture.

EVERY EXIT IS AN ENTRANCE: 30 Years of Exit Art
March 24 - May 19, 2012
Opening reception, Friday, March 23, 2012 / 7-9PM
NEW YORK - Exit Art is pleased to announce our final exhibition EVERY EXIT IS AN ENTRANCE: 30 YEARS OF EXIT ART. Founded in 1982 by Executive Director Jeanette Ingberman and Artistic Director Papo Colo, Exit Art has grown from a pioneering alternative art space into an innovative cultural center. We have supported and fostered a vibrant, interdisciplinary artistic community in New York, organizing over 200 exhibitions, events, festivals and programs featuring more than 2,500 artists. Consistently challenging social, political, aesthetic and curatorial norms, Exit Art has organized historical exhibitions; presented the work of young, emerging, under-recognized and mid-career artists; produced experimental theater and performance works; and organized national and international film and video programs. Committed early on to experimenting with the intersections of film, video, performance, music, publications, design and visual art, Exit Art remained steadfast in its mission to provide new possibilities and opportunities for both artists and audiences alike.

At the heart of the institution is the relationship between Co-Founders Ingberman and Colo, who met in the late 1970s during a studio visit, fell in love, founded Exit Art, and dedicated their lives to nurturing a cultural center that responded to some of the most prescient issues of our time. EVERY EXIT IS AN ENTRANCE: 30 Years of Exit Art explores this rich history, from its founding in a loft apartment on Canal Street in 1982 to its years in SoHo at 578 Broadway (1984-1992) and 548 Broadway (1992-2002) and to its current Hell's Kitchen location.
The retrospective exhibition will feature extensive documentation from Exit Art's archives, including posters, promotional graphics, photographs, and elements of the innovative in-house exhibition designs employed in past exhibitions, as well as the work of a selection of artists championed over the years. In conjunction with the exhibition, Exit Art is organizing a series of events including film screenings, theater and performance programs, live performance and music, artist talks, curatorial presentations, panel discussions, and more. The exhibition will also include a reading library of materials Exit Art has published. Co-Founder Papo Colo will present a personal exhibition of photographic materials that celebrate the spirit of Exit Art, with a focus on the life of co-founder Jeanette Ingberman who passed away in August 2011.

CONFIRMED ARTISTS (as of February 9, 2012):

11. Roberta Allen, FF Alumn, in The Brooklyn Rail, February 2012

Hi to everyone,

Latest review of my novel THE DREAMING GIRL in The Brooklyn Rail:

http://www.brooklynrail.org/2012/02/books/the-dreaming-girl

From the review by Suzanne McConnell: "Allen captures with magnificent nuance the emotions and moments that go with the territory of relating. But the deeper plot unearths the girl's relationship to life itself and to the "other living things."

Time Finite: 2010
By Babs Reingold

The Moving Finger writes; and having writ, Moves on... - Omar Khayyam

To paraphrase Aristotle, if time is a measure of change in respect of before and after, then a necessary condition of there being time at all is the existence of change.
This work -- one in a series with interlocking themes - measures time. More precisely, it measures the effect of time upon our bodies, our minds, our work, our play; in other words, Aristotle's "existence of change". In Time Finite, a metamorphosing physical allure is resurrected. Lost hair, a bane of aging, is transformed into "doodles" and encapsulated. Here, 28 days of hair loss repose in individual Petri dishes. Each day of existence is caught for an instant, and transcends the ordinary to the eternal.
The hair doodles represent a personal calligraphy of beauty sexuality, and memory. Throughout history, cultures have recognized the power of hair, exposing or covering crowns. Just as significant, hair tassels over time became keepsakes, even after death, often secreted into a locket or pressed in a Bible or diary. And why not? Hair contains our complete DNA and lives beyond our death.
Conversely, and in real time, hair is repulsive. Consider the tendril on a dinner plate or the mass plugging the bath drain.
This dichotomy attracted me, and was inspired by the "Hair" catalog from the Kohler Center exhibition in 1995. The polar opposites already mentioned (gorgeous hair vs wads of hair) reinforced my vision of hair as a powerful medium, both metaphorically and literally. Three years later I started collecting my daily hair loss and used it in various works such as the small box portraits.
In 2005, I began abstracting my hair into doodles on a daily basis. It was a way of exploring the attraction-repulsion dynamic of unsullied beauty and innocence of youth, and what enduring day after day implies in this context. Surprisingly, an act that began as documenting the erosion of beauty became something else; a private and secret language tracking across time to ironically amplify the questions of self-esteem as age impacts physical and psychological well-being.
"Time Finite" is a continuation of the concept and falls within the series of works called "Fallout: Beauty Lost and Found." In past shows, viewers, including several women where chemotherapy caused loss of hair, commented that although disturbed by the concept, the outcome "was beautiful." This is ironic in a way.
The societal stigma of age is paramount today, particularly for women who seek redemption in plastic surgery, Botox and stem cell cosmetic injections, fitness clubs, what have you. As the huge segment of our aging population advances into the 21st Century, works in the "Beauty" series seek further confrontation as revelation.

14. Marina Abramović, FF Alumn, at Smart Museum, Chicago, IL, Feb. 16-June 10, and more

Featured in the exhibition
Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art
at the Smart Museum
Chicago, Illinois
February 16 - June 10, 2012

Delivering a lecture at
The Chicago Humanities Festival
at the First United Methodist Church
at The Chicago Temple
Chicago, Illinois
February 16th at 6pm

Sean Kelly is pleased to announce that Marina Abramović will be included in a group exhibition at the Smart Museum in Chicago and, in conjunction with the Chicago Humanities Festival, will deliver a lecture that coincides with the exhibition's opening. Titled Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art, the exhibition surveys the artistic practice of sharing food and drink to advance aesthetic goals and foster critical engagement. Feast will be on view from February 16 through June 10, 2012 and will open with a reception on February 15 from 7:30 to 9pm; Abramovic's lecture at the First United Methodist Church at The Chicago Temple will take place on February 16th at 6pm.

As part of Feast, the Smart Museum will present a new version of Communist Body/Fascist Body, a seminal work by Abramović and her longterm partner and collaborator, the German artist Ulay. This is the first time that this work will be re-visited since its original performance in 1979, in which Abramović and Ulay, born respectively in communist and fascist states, staged a performance by setting two different tables into parallel positions; her table, displaying Russian champagne and caviar, was covered with pages from a Russian newspaper, toilet paper for napkins, and dishes, cups, and knives made of cheap aluminum. Ulay's table, alternately, was covered with a white damask tablecloth, damask napkins, porcelain dishes, crystal champagne glasses, silver cutlery, German champagne, and caviar. On a third table their birth certificates were displayed, and placed 10 meters behind the two tables, there was a mattress with a white linen sheet and a red blanket. Eleven guests were invited to come before midnight as they slept on the mattress covered by the white linen sheet and red blanket. As Abramović describes, the performance "was like two opposites coming together in a symbiosis. Our fathers were enemies, and I was in love with the enemy. This was a situation of questioning the absoluteness of life." The installation at the Smart Museum will comprise a re-creation of the elements used in the original performance.

For more information on the lecture, please visit: The Chicago Humanities Festival website

Post-Card Invitation

Newark
February 10 - March 1, 2012
Opening: Friday, February 10, 6 - 10 PM

The ice fisherman sits alone tweaking his methods to achieve the best results. The only thing outside his little shack is the harsh cold environment, but this is no concern for the fisherman who works and waits for the catch. We can draw parallels in the way many artists work. The "shack" or studio is a place where an artist can be alone, and the space furnished with the tools needed to get the job done.

We have playfully used the ice fisherman as a timely and wintery metaphor to represent how artists work with ideas and materials that reflect their surroundings. These surroundings could be the white, cold, flat environment of the Arctic, a blank canvas if you will. These artists have looked beneath the surface to find a flow, a movement of life interpreted in varying mediums and styles.

Status FYEO: Classified-Disclosure. Circulation-75,183
Somewhere..
On the internet..
In and around the Piazza Sordello!
And who knows where else!?

Temporary Art Manto (MAT / tam) will secretly occur, suddenly, for brief moments and in varied sites....even in art spaces.

The events or exhibits happen when they happen, unannounced except by word of mouth or word of web, surviving for almost 60 minutes. While Temporary Art Manto suddenly emerges, its de-programmed events generate their own meaning.

"These are exhibitions or events, things done by people we come to know, whom we ask to do something: friends, family, acquaintances, ourselves and especially many others. They are things to see, but then it also happens that there is stuff to read or listen to or touch or taste or smell." -- Annarosa Burrarelli and Lucio Pozzi

Though Mantova itself is an ideal center for reticent, yet public, action, it also forms an awareness that sprouts like a weed. From Mantova, MAT / tam comes up everywhere: Lodz, Ulan Bator, Oaxaca, Bamako, Paris, Asuncion, even Mantova.

Thank you in advance for receiving this classified disclosure. We entrust it with confidence to seventy five thousand one hundred eighty three recipients certain to ensure it's absolute secrecy.

On the web: suggested search "MAT / tam"

On the ground: suggested search "Piazza Sordello"

Manto: is the mythical Priestess Founder of Mantova.

21. Gabriel Martinez, FF Alumn, at The Print Center, Philadelphia, PA, Feb. 23

Gabriel Martinez & Chad States
Artist Discussion
Thursday, February 23, 6:00pm, FREE

Gabriel Martinez and Chad States have both recently completed extensive photographic bodies of work that are receiving national and international attention, but have not been widely seen or discussed in the Philadelphia community. Both artists have documented gay men in sexual acts, but with quite different perspectives and intentions. Martinez has examined groups of gay men who come together for safe sex encounters. States has traveled nationally documenting men having anonymous sex in the woods.

The event will be a discussion between the two artists and the public, drawing out the complex issues that harmonize and clash within these two bodies of work. Content not suitable for children.

22. Marina Abramović, Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, Richard Prince, FF Alumns, in The New York Times, Feb. 10

The New York Times, February 10, 2012, Inside Art, by Carol Vogel

ARTISTS IN CONVERSATION, ONLINE

When it started in 1981 Bomb Magazine was a quarterly forum for artists of all disciplines - painters and writers, musicians, actors and architects - to discuss their work, "the way we talk about it amongst ourselves," explained Betsy Sussler, its editor in chief and co-founder.

Bomb became known for publishing engaging artists interviewing other artists. But times have changed. "Now our mission is to become multiplatform," Ms. Sussler said. In 2007, Bomb received money from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts and a few of the magazine's trustees to revamp its Web site and post about 1,000 interviews. That project is growing. A $138,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation will make it possible to continue digitizing Bomb's remaining archives, which, besides the interviews, include essays by artists about artists. The site will cross-reference the work to provide a slice of New York's cultural history.
Everything will be free, and users can access transcripts of interviews between unlikely artists in various fields - Tony Kushner by Craig Lucas; Vito Acconci talking to Richard Prince; Laurie Anderson and Marina Abramovic - as well as find deeper information about the artists' lives and their work.

In 2004 Columbia University's Rare Book & Manuscript Library acquired the interview tapes, along with unedited transcripts and ephemera, which are available to scholars. Bomb's Web site will offer edited transcripts. Ms. Sussler estimated that it would take about three years to put most of them online. While the printed magazine has a circulation of about 60,000, its Web site is getting one million unique visitors a year.
