"Lauded and controversial shaman performance artist Frank Moore ... will be sure to
baffle your mind. Moore will attempt to reimagine human emotion through the use of
musicians, actors, dancers, and members of the audience.
It's experimental performance art at its most experimental."
George McIntire, San Francisco Bay Guardian

"Frank Moore, a genius explorer of the frontiers of human affection."

"One of the country's most controversial and profound artists." Kotori Magazine

"...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.

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

"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

"...one of the U.S.'s most controversial performance artists,...." P-Form Magazine

"If performance art has a radical edge, it has to be Frank Moore." Cleveland Edition

"Surely wonderful and mind-goosing experience." L.A. Reader

"(Frank Moore is) the king of eroticism." Mike Trachel

"We came, we saw, we read local performance artist-provocateur Frank Moore's
poem...experience the joys of unsettled discomfort..." - Kimberly Chun, SF Chronicle

7. Jan Fabre, Yoko Ono, FF Alumns, at Palazzo Bembo, Venice, Italy, December 8-15

Venice International Performance Art Week

"Hybrid Body - Poetic Body"
8-15 December 2012
Opening: Saturday, 8 December 2012, 7pm

Palazzo Bembo
Riva del Carbon, San Marco 4793
Venice, Italy
Hours: Sunday 9-Saturday 15 December, 10-10pm


The 1st Venice International Performance Art Week, under the title "Hybrid Body-Poetic
Body," will take place in Venice from December 8th to December 15th, 2012,
showcasing works by 31 international artists. Pioneers alongside established and
emerging ones will trace an itinerary of still vivid past influences and current tendencies
in the field.

Consisting of a dynamic program of live performances, installations, photographic and
video documentation, daily artist talks, and meetings with the participating artists,
researchers and curators, the event focuses on concepts such as authenticity,
interconnectivity, empathy, struggle, love, political and social habits, and how the Self
relates to them.

The purpose is also educational. The 1st Venice International Performance Art Week is in
fact conceived as a long-term project, aiming to promote series of workshops and
seminars on Performance art issues along the year on international scale, in cooperation
with other cultural institutions of the city, such as the Academy of Fine Arts. Already for
this first edition, 40 students of the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice have been selected
and invited to present their works and researches on the topic during the Art Week.

Two-way communication between artists and audience is the key for this discipline, for
proposing experience and investigate cutting edge ideas in different branches of the
human activity.

Performance art is life itself, it doesn't represent or portray. It rather analyses how and
why people and their surroundings evolve or devolve, to generate reflection. Because it is
ephemeral and because the artist's own body is the primary medium, Performance art
holds an unquestionable vital potential: it steps beyond conventional borders to create an
immediate impact by engaging directly the viewer emotionally and intellectually. Finally,
it requires both artists and audience to be responsive here and now to position oneself.
Anything becomes matter of process and presence.

The selection of Live art performances responds to a precise curatorial line to avoid the
risk of ending in another hypertrophied platform of global art. If the concern is also
aesthetics, the objective is to analyze thoughts and ideas on space, time and existence:
questions of form and substance in continuous transformation, and where however the
artist's body is always the primary instance. When the artistic value matches human
qualities, it is possible to scan new carriers of meanings about how to live this life with
more care, and to address it for positive change by producing challenging expressions. In
such context; concepts such as lasting and endurance, persistency, necessity and trial,
resistance and awareness are not confined anymore to the realm of abstraction, but
become tangible because they experienced as real.

10. Dena Shottenkirk at University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA, Nov. 29


You are invited to an event in Philadelphia, PA on Nov. 29th.

I am having an event that day at the University of the Arts - a philosophy/art event
centered around the philosopher Nelson Goodman. Artists from Philly as well as
philosophers from both UPenn and Temple will participate. It should be both interesting
and fun. I hope you can make it.

The next event we are planning is around the topic of censorship and I hope I can catch
you on that one, if this one is not possible. The press release for this month's event is

Warm regards,
Dr. Shottenkirk

The Philosophers' Ontological Party club (POPc), are throwing a party.
As part of the System Project's Presentation of A Night with Nelson
Goodman, you are invited - over drinks and really fancy snacks
- to be part of the discussion/argument/sharing of lingering

DATE: NOVEMBER 29, 2012.
5:00-7:00 P.M.
PLACE: University of the Arts. 333 Broad Street, 8th floor,
Philadelphia, PA

Artist and philosopher Dena Shottenkirk brings to UArts an installation
examining in visual terms the issues discussed in her book on the
twentieth century analytic philosopher Nelson Goodman. (Nelson Goodman:
Nominalism and Its Aftermath (Springer)). The book can be viewed at
This event is not though just another art exhibition.* It has a
performative/party aspect, where local philosophers (real ones, though
occasionally an honorary one gets slipped in) play the part of
philosophers and answer questions from curious viewers. In this
instance, they will be Noel Carroll, David Post, and Lara Ostaric.
Questions can be drawn from a hat or viewers can just extemporaneously
engage. The discussions are unscripted so range from the profound to the erene and back
to the trivial. It is afterall a party.

* If you'd like to see the version of it done in NYC last year you
could go to the website http://denashottenkirk.com/
and click on The System Project, (which is what this enterprise is called).
