PISO: conversations+interventions
June 10-15
Various locations in the South Bronx, NY
PISO proyecto is a platform for movement and social practices that engage with and question displacement through the body. PISO (in English: floor) is a series of wood platforms that contain the practice of improvisation in public spaces and other. The viewers and ecologies we move in and out of are part of the experience and their presence influences our decisions and the trajectory of the project.
We are in the South Bronx June 10 - 15 to engage in public space interventions and sharing of past documentation as we approach two years of research and practice. We will have access to the projection room at Bronx Council on the Arts' Longwood Arts Gallery @ Hostos Community College to share past and present documentation of San Mateo Community in Santurce, Puerto Rico - site which PISO has taken its practice and research since end of January 2013. Most of all, we desire to engage in conversation with those who come into contact with us to make sure there is experiencing, thinking and sensing from all involved. We also want to receive factual input which might help push our practice into new areas of research, doing and engagement.

Whitney and Aldrich collaborate to present Legacy: Photographs from the Emily Fisher Landau Collection

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum has been chosen as one of six nationwide sites to exhibit work donated to the Whitney Museum of American Art by eminent philanthropist Emily Fisher Landau. The exhibition will be on view in Ridgefield, CT, from June 8 through September 2, 2013.

The Aldrich will be the only venue to focus on significant photographs by influential artists from the collection: Richard Artschwager, Matthew Barney, Keith Cottingham, Lynn Davis, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, John Dugdale, Nan Goldin, Rodney Graham, Robert Longo, Vera Lutter, Robert Mapplethorpe, Abelardo Morell, Shirin Neshat, Victoria Sambunaris, Lorna Simpson, Kiki Smith, and Hiroshi Sugimoto.

This focused exhibition is an iteration of the Whitney Museum of American Art's Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection, which showcased an historic collection of works-diverse in media-promised to the institution by their long-time supporter.

The Aldrich has chosen twenty photographs-created between 1980 and 2004-that reflect a period when photography as a medium stood at the forefront of contemporary art practice. They highlight Ms. Fisher Landau's enterprising vision and enduring commitment to artists, often from the start of their careers. Her dedication to significant and challenging art is shared by The Aldrich, which also fosters the careers of emerging artists, many of whom have gone on to achieve great acclaim.

Legacy will be presented in galleries adjacent to the Museum's camera obscura, a permanent architectural feature designed to frame discussion around perception and the act of looking. A number of works in the exhibition, including those by Rodney Graham, Vera Lutter, and Abelardo Morell, directly relate to the nature of the camera obscura, and particularly its relationship with the history and development of photography.

Aldrich executive director Alyson Baker said, "It is a great honor to collaborate with the Whitney and to expand the celebration of Emily Fisher Landau's Legacy into the state of Connecticut."

Admission to the June 8 opening reception for the exhibition Legacy: Photographs from the Emily Fisher Landau Collection is free as part of Connecticut Open House Day 2013, a one-day statewide celebration of Connecticut's art and history, sponsored by the Connecticut Office of Tourism. From 2 to 5pm, visitors are invited to join docent-led tours, participate in creative, photography-inspired family activities, and purchase lunch from the gourmet food truck, Taco Pacifico, which serves California-style Mexican cuisine. For further information, call 203 438 4519. The Aldrich is located at 258 Main Street, Ridgefield, CT 06877.

The touring schedule for selections from the Whitney Museum of American Art's exhibition Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection (February 10 to May 1, 2011) is as follows: Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach, FL (February 21 to June 2, 2013); The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT (June 8 to September 2, 2013); Asheville Art Museum, NC (June 15 to September 8, 2013); Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, NE (September 28, 2013, to January 5, 2014); Grand Rapids Art Museum, MI (January 31 to April 27, 2014); San Jose Museum of Art, CA (May 15 to September 14, 2014).

The complementary publication, Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection, edited by Dana Miller, includes essays by Donna De Salvo and Joseph Giovannini. The book is published by the Whitney Museum of American Art, in association with Yale University Press, and contains entries on each of the artists whose works are included in the Landau gift, as well as a full-color checklist.

Emily Fisher Landau
Mrs. Landau became a trustee of the Whitney in 1990 and in 1995 established an endowment to support the Biennial, the Whitney's signature contemporary exhibition. In 1991, the Fisher Landau Center for Art, devoted to art education and the exhibition and study of the Fisher Landau Collection, was founded in Long Island City. In 1999, Mrs. Landau established the Fisher Landau Center for the Treatment of Learning Disabilities at Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University and she has also supported programs at Columbia University Teachers College and New York University that help students with learning disabilities. She was made a Chevalier, Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, by the government of France in 1986, received the Haym Solomon Award from the Anti-Defamation League in 2006, and was honored with the 2008 CITYarts Making a Difference through the Arts Award.

Founded by Larry Aldrich in 1964, The Aldrich is dedicated to fostering innovative artists whose ideas and interpretations of the world around us serve as a platform to encourage creative thinking. The Aldrich is one of the few independent, non-collecting contemporary art museums in the United States, and the only museum in Connecticut devoted to contemporary art. It is one of only twenty museums in Connecticut and only 318 art museums in the country to be accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. The Museum is located at 258 Main Street, Ridgefield, CT 06877. All exhibitions and programs are handicapped accessible. Free on-site parking. Regular Museum hours are Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 5pm. For more information call 203 438 4519 or visit aldrichart.org.

Legacy: Photography from The Emily Fisher Landau Collection is organized in collaboration with the Whitney Museum of American Art and is curated at The Aldrich by executive director Alyson Baker and exhibitions director Richard Klein. This exhibition is supported, in part, by the Connecticut Office of the Arts and The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, Inc. The official media sponsors of exhibition openings are Ridgefield Magazine and WSHU Public Radio.

This exhibition brings together two classic themes of summer wonder - so saccharine and ubiquitous we forget their awesome power.

12. Nancy Holt, FF Alumn, at Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, BC, June 10

Contemporary Art Gallery
Vancouver, BC
Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson

Film Screening
Monday June 10, 7 pm
Free admission

The Cinematheque
1131 Howe Street

Duration 83 minutes
Mono Lake (1968-2004)
Swamp (1971)
Pine Barrens (1975)
Sun Tunnels (1978)

The exhibition, Nancy Holt, Selected Photo and Film Works continues until June 16.
Please join us for a special one night screening at The Cinematheque of four film works by Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson. Nancy Holt is one of the leading artists of her generation and a pioneer in conceptual, site-specific art and film and video work. She is one of a group of important international artists who initiated the Land art movement in the late 1960s. The CAG exhibition Selected Photo and Film Works brings together a selection of photographs from 1967 onwards, many seen for the first time in public, alongside pivotal text and film works.

Sun Tunnels (1978) depicts Holt's best-known environmental work, four large concrete tunnels, aligned in pairs along an axis of the rising and setting sun on a summer or winter solstice, the pipes acting as viewing devices for the sky, the surrounding landscape, and each other. Using the natural environment as both medium and subject, with a focus on the cyclical time of the universe, the daily axial rotation of our planet Earth, and its annual orbit around the sun, Holt's films reflect her determination to connect people with the planet Earth, to bring "the sky down to earth."

15. Liliana Porter, FF Alumn, announces new book

We are happy to announce the publication of the seventh book in the Conversaciones/Conversations series, Liliana Porter in conversation with/en conversación con Inés Katzenstein. This is the first title in the series to be published simultaneously in print and digital formats.
From the artist's personal history to her artistic practice, this volume presents an engaging dialogue between the Argentinian artist Liliana Porter and curator Inés Katzenstein, and includes an introductory essay by critic and curator Gregory Volk. Porter describes with clarity and humor the ways in which her work blends the real with the representational, often in hypothetical, yet convincing, mini-dramas using mass-produced, kitsch objects that elicit both our compassion and our laughter. The e-book edition offers a wealth of additional materials including excerpts from a number of Porter's video works, details of her collaborative work with Ana Tiscornia, including reproductions of works by Alicia Mihai Gazcue (invented by Porter and Tiscornia), and archival documents from Porter's personal files such as postcards recording her friendship with Ana Mendieta.

The Conversaciones/Conversations series is an ongoing project that has expanded greatly since its launch in 2010. In an effort to expand its audiences by making our content more accessible worldwide, the FC/CPPC has partnered with London based digital art book publisher MAPP Editions on the design and production of our e-books. These new digital editions are available in standard EPUB 3 format, the most versatile platform to date, available for iPad, Google Readium and Adobe Reader. Special features offer new ways to navigate through the books' content, share thoughts and comments, and to go "behind the scenes" of the conversation. The e-books are also available for Kindle platform. Forthcoming titles to be published in print and digital formats, include conversations between Alfredo Jaar and Luis Pérez-Oramas; Luis Camnitzer and Alexander Alberro; Tania Bruguera and Claire Bishop, among many others.
