1. Barbara Hammer, FF Alumn, at MoMA, Manhattan, Dec. 16

Witness: Palestine a film performance by
Barbara Hammer
Sunday, December 16, Performance Tent, Courtyard PS1 MoMA
Approximately mid-afternoon
(an afternoon of different Pasolini related performances will run continuously 12-6pm; reception following.

In her most recent project Witness: Palestine the established artist and filmmaker Barbara Hammer integrates film practices into social spaces sharing the voices of men and women she met on the first LGBTQ Solidarity Tour of Palestine in January, 2012. How could she allow others a similar experience? This is one of the most important questions the artist raises with this work. Upon seeing Intellettuale, 1975, by Fabio Mauri who projected the Pasolini film (The Gospel According to Saint Matthew, 1964) on Pasolini himself, she found her clue. By inviting the reader/audience into the work to produce it, instead of enforcing a predetermined reading, Hammer privileges the intelligence and integrity of the participant.

3. Ellen Lanyon, Michelle Stuart, FF Alumns, at Metropolitan Capital Bank, Chicago, Il., thru Feb. 28, 2013

Ellen Lanyon Robert Kushner, Michelle Stuart, Judy Pfaff, Dec.1 2012- Feb.28 2013

"An Assemblage of Four" Metropolitan Capital Bank, Chicago

The Metropolitan Capital Bank is now housed in the renovated North Annex of the historic Tree Studios in Chicago. The bank President, Michael Rose initiated an exhibition program over ten years ago. Each curated exhibit occurs quarterly and features leading artists of the Chicago area. While this exhibition departs from the tradition of showing local artists, all four have had and continue to have connections with galleries and museums in the city. The title derives from the nature of the works shown--all incorporate an assemblage of drawing, painting and/or printmaking. Works created with and on paper as well as a variety of other materials compose the four bodies of work and while the media varies with each artist, all four address the use of collage directly or indirectly as a format.

6. Saya Woolfalk, FF Alumn, at The Montclair Museum, NJ, thru Jan. 6, 2013


Saya Woolfalk
The Empathics
Montclair Art Museum, Montclair, NJ
3 South Mountain Avenue Montclair, NJ 07042
September 26th, 2012 - January 6th, 2013

The Empathics is presented as an ethnographic museum display and introduces the viewer to a fictional race of women who physically metamorphose as they merge cultural identities and cross species. Complete with its own imagery, symbolism, and folklore, the story of the Empathics is a parable. It examines how myriad cultures mix, clash, and transform, and expresses the hope that, in future societies, cultures will develop better understanding, or empathy, for one other.

Saya Woolfalk (Japan, 1979) is a New York artist who uses science fiction and fantasy to re-imagines the world in multiple dimensions (sculpture, installation, painting, performance and video). She has exhibited at MoMA PS1; Deitch Projects; Contemporary Art Museum, Houston; Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Studio Museum in Harlem; the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville; Momenta Art; and Performa 09; and has been written about in Sculpture Magazine and on Art21's blog. She has been an artist in residence at the Studio Museum in Harlem, Skowhegan, and the Newark Museum. With funding from the NEA, her solo exhibition, The Institute of Empathy, ran at Real Art Ways from Fall 2010 to Spring 2011. Her first solo museum show The Empathics is currently on view at the Montclair Art Museum. Some of her upcoming projects are a solo show for ThirdStreaming, NYC as well as inclusion in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the MCA San Diego.

8. Joan Snyder, FF Alumn, extended at Cristin Tierney, Manhattan, thru Dec. 15

Cristin Tierney is pleased to announce that Joan Snyder: Paper Pulp Paintings has been extended through Saturday, December 15th, 2012.

These latest works are a natural extension of Snyder's varied painting and printmaking practices and have strong connections to the history of modern and expressionist painting.

In his recent review of the exhibition, critic and curator Christian Viveros-Faune, described the work as having:

Deep surfaces with unabashed interplays of colour and texture that evoke natural processes, like sunlight, as well as less exact human correspondences, like calm or awe. The painting Like a Melon Field (2011), for example, looks alternately like a Monet garden in blues and greens or an especially optimistic corner of an Anselm Kiefer painting.

For more information, please contact Valerie Altahawi at valerie@cristintierney.com or at 212.594.0550.
Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 am till 6:00 pm
546 West 29th Street, New York, NY 10001
