1. Emily Mast, FF Fund recipient, at Rauschenberg Project Space, Manhattan, Sept. 5-7

B!RDBRA!N by EMILY MAST

In B!RDBRA!N, seven performers, ranging in age from 8 to 68 years, perform in a series of vignettes that expose the problematic and creative nature of (mis)communication and the ways in which words serve as objects onto which meanings are projected. Working at the intersection of visual art and theater, Emily Mast casts a stuntman, a stutterer, a sign-language interpreter, a comedian, a child, an auctioneer, and a theater director who describe, transcribe, interpret and gesture within a landscape of vivid colorful forms that are reminiscent of Guy de Cointet's sets, elementary school classrooms and minimalist art. With allusions to the true story of Alex, a verbally skilled parrot who was the subject of a thirty-year avian language experiment with controversial findings, B!RDBRA!N questions whether our understanding is, as one of Alex's critics wrote, simply a "complex discriminative performance."

This work was made possible, in part, by Machine Project, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation and the Franklin Furnace Fund supported by the Lambent Foundation, The SHS Foundation, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

September 5th, 6th & 7th
Doors open at 7:30 PM
Show starts at 8:00 PM

Saturday's performance will be ASL interpreted

Three New Online Projects and a Collaboration for 2013-14
http://viralnet.net/essays.html
http://viralnet.net/projects.html

viralnet.net, the Center for Integrated Media's online project space at the California Institute of the Arts, is pleased to announce the posting of three new projects: "Culture In Miniature: Toy Dogs and Object Life" by Chiming Yang, "To Be Announced" by Courtney Malick and "Off Road" by Uta Kogelsberger. These three projects mark the launching of viralnet.net's new 2013-14 annual series of essays, interviews, events, publications and exhibitions.

Chi-ming Yang's essay is posted in collaboration with the University of Toronto's journal, "Eighteenth Century Fiction." Yang frames her essay, "Culture in Miniature," as an exploration of how eighteenth-century imported dogs, toys and curios from Asia "reveal the miniature to be a cross-cultural phenomenon tied to new technologies of modeling life." She describes how the toy dog "mediated relations of racial, sexual, and species difference and helped establish a luxury market for the pet as a racialized fetish object that continues to this day."

"To Be Announced" is an essay by Courtney Malick that explores the work of emerging artists: Ivana Basic, Mircea Cantor, Xavier Cha, Brody Condon, Joshua Hagler, Miri Segal and Or Even Tov. Malick describes her essay as a critique of "our current moment as one within which we are seeing a long, gradual process of cultural and environmental destruction. This destruction, like that of a forest fire, can be understood as a catharsis of sorts, through which outmoded beliefs and systems of communication and identification may be obliterated, thus creating a clearing upon which new ways of life can begin to be built." Uta Kogelsberger's video "Off Road" was shot at a State Vehicular Recreation Area in California. It is part of a larger series of works that look at what Kogelsberger calls " these controlled "pockets of freedom" that are particularly emblematic of North American culture; places where people go to leave the constraints of everyday existence behind to live out a fantasy of autonomy and freedom. A fantasy that is also instrumental in sustaining the political system that houses it." Kogelsberger's video will soon be accompanied by an interview with Tom Leeser, the Director of the Center for Integrated Media and Director of the Art and Technology Program at the California Institute of the Arts.

During 2013-14 viralnet.net will also be working in collaboration with the Centre for the Living Arts in Mobile, Alabama as part of their exhibition, "Futures Project." viralnet.net is included in Tom Leeser's "Futures Project" artist residency called, "Future Tense." "Future Tense" is a cross-disciplinary project that includes digital video artists, musicians and writers in a series of screenings, symposiums and events that will run until January 2014.

4. Heather Cassils, FFAlumn, at Ronald Feldman Gallery, Manhattan, opening Sept. 7 and more

FIRST SOLO SHOW OPEN SEPTEMBER 7TH AT RONALD FELDMAN FINE ARTS!!!
Dear Fellow Artists, Friends, Lovers, Fighters and other Beautiful Creatures I Have Crossed Paths With In Life,

Welcome to my first newsletter. If you are getting this we have shaken hands, rubbed shoulders, embraced or sweated together. I am writing to share the flurry of activities I have been up to (and shall be getting up to) in the near future.

a. On September 7, 2013 my first solo exhibition opens, titled Body of Work, at Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, located at 31 Mercer street New York, NY. I am beyond excited and I have been working my balls off all summer long, creating many new works for this show including: 27 photographs, 2 sculptures, 1 audio piece, 2 videos, collages, watercolors and a publication. I can honestly say I have really pushed myself for this show.Mark your calendars as I will be performing Becoming An Image LIVE at 6 pm on September 7th.

Come witness the exertion.

b. Last April I drew the album cover for Black Sabbath's new extended single entitled "God Is Dead". It features a portrait of Friedrich Nietzsche, who originated the quote, with wires/ licorice/ ground meat/ coming out of his mouth. In the back ground explodes an atomic bomb. You can check out the new single HERE. The brilliant Cathy Davies Bell collaborated with me lending her terrific graphic design skills.
Ozzy loves the artwork and gave Cristy and I VIP tickets to attend the sold out concert in Los Angeles September 3rd. All you can eat bats!!!

c. The past six weeks I have been teaching a group fitness class called Boot Camp for Freaks. BCFF queers my knowledge of exercise science and sport for a community who seek a different approach to health and wellness then the same old gender binary. Each Saturday we met in the grass and sun to sweat it out while pushing our physical limits via intensely weird and creative movement and body weight exercises. A portion of the proceeds went to charities such as the LA Queer Homeless Youth Center and the The Sylvia Rivera Law Project (who work to guarantee that all people are free to self determine gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence.) We used our hardening bodies to help those in hard times raising over $850!

Thats all for now! I sincerely hope you are having a splendid summer and I look forward to catching up personally with you all very soon. Come see my show!

Lots of love and thanks for reading,

Cassils

8. Hector Canonge, FF Alumn, at Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, thru August 31

HECTOR CANONGE
CORPOREALIDAD
August 9 - 31, 2013

Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, MACSC, through the Ministry of Cultures of the Autonomous Government of the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, presents the new project and solo exhibition "CORPOREALIDAD" by New York City based artist Hector Canonge. For its presentation in MACSC, Canonge transformed the galleries of the well known institution into spaces for reflection and contemplation with videos, installations, photography and performance art pieces. The exhibition integrates and expands many of the concepts and work that the artist has been developing since his return to Latin America in 2012. For CORPOREALIDAD, his second solo exhibition in one of Bolivia's most important cities, Canonge takes as point of departure the body and its potential transformation in determined physical environments to develop a poetic vision with strong philosophical and socio-political resonance. The structure of the exhibition invites audiences to freely explore the galleries and their corresponding visual narratives where images, objects, texts and documentation of performances can be experienced and discovered.

CORPOREALIDAD is an interdisciplinary project that integrates various forms of discourse in Contemporary Art -video, site-specific installations, performance art and photography- to explore themes related with the urban environment, and the presence of the artist as subject and object of observation and appreciation. The exhibition at Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Santa Cruz de la Sierra introduces audiences the particular audio-visual narratives that reflect Canonge's particular generative style. The artist explains that "CORPOREALIDAD is a conceptual project where the body, corpo, frames and generates possible realities -realidad- and, at the same time, possible states of absence and presence according to a particular physical space and situation." In addition to the exhibition, Canonge has been making various public presentation with live actions throughout the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. A series of workshops, panels and lectures have been scheduled before the closing of the exhibition on August 31st.

*CORPOREALIDAD (left to right): "Lluvia Tricolor" (performance para la inauguración de exposición), "Hombre de Barro" (acción pública, plaza 24 de Septiembre) y vista de la sala central del museo en el momento de instalación de la muestra.
HECTOR CANONGE is an interdisciplinary artist, curator, and cultural promoter. His artistic work incorporates the use of media technologies, physical environments, cinematic and performative narratives. He explores and treats issues related to construction of identity, gender roles, and the politics of migration. Challenging the white box settings of a gallery or a museum or intervening directly in public spaces, his performances mediate movement, endurance, and ritualistic processes. Some of his actions and carefully choreographed performances involve collaborating with other artists and interacting with audiences.

In 2012 Canonge lived in Latin America for seven months generating a new body of work, exhibiting, lecturing, conducting workshops, and presenting live action performances in various institutions and public spaces in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia. Canonge is the recipient of the 2012 Goethe Zentrum Award in Latin America for his project "SIN FRONTERAS," and has received the 2012-2013 Franklin Furnace Award for his upcoming project "LAB.ORAL." Upon his return to the US this year, he started "PERFORMEANDO" a program/project/collective that focuses on featuring Latin/o/a performance artists living and working in the Unites States.

Canonge lives and works in New York City where he organizes the performance art festival ITINERANT, directs the film series CINEMAROSA, leads the monthly program for artists, A-Lab Forum, and is the founder of the nonprofit organization QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development. His work has been reviewed by The New York Times, ART FORUM, New York Daily News, Manhattan Times, Hispanic Magazine; by major networks ABC, NBC, CNN, CBS, UNIVISION, etc., and by online art publications such as Art Experience NYC, NYRemezcla, Turbulence, ART CARDS Review and NYFA News among others. During Summer 2013, Canonge will be presenting new works and exhibiting new projects: "MISK'I" and "CORPOREALIDAD" in Bolivia, "PACIFICO" in Peru, and "MATEANDO" in Argentina. The artist will be participating in residencies and programs in Europe in the Fall 2013.

11. Babs Reingold, FF Alumn, at AC Institute, Manhattan, opening Sept. 12

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to invite you to my solo exhibition "Luna Window" at AC Institute, 547 W 27th 2nd fl, Chelsea NYC.

Babs Reingold: Luna Window

September 12 - November 16, 2013
Opening event Thursday, September 12, 6-8pm

See you at the reception!

This event is free and open to the public

Contact: AC Institute, Holly Crawford
Email: info@artcurrents.org

AC Institute announces a new exhibit, "Luna Window", by Babs Reingold opening September 12, 2013 with an artist's reception 6-8pm.

The exhibition, four organza-stained and hair-stuffed ladders poking from decaying windows and doors, chronicles Reingold's continuing exploration into poverty, including a stay in public housing.

Her statement notes: "In 1940, public housing was constructed on the former 35-acre site of Luna Park, Cleveland's answer to Coney Island. The housing project, Woodhill, was the city's largest. I moved into Woodhill at age fourteen, white, Jewish and for all wants and purposes, alone."

According to the artist, "Luna Window" is one in a series of exhibits that expose the irony of fantasy descending into a wretched reality. It is a narrative, she said, of broken homes, broken dreams and the despair of a prison, where trapped by fear, occupants press against the window unable to escape, peering at a society isolated from them.

Reingold fabricates her soft sculpture-like ladders in a laborious process. The shells are stained silk organza, which are stuffed with human hair and then sewn into the ladder shapes. The artist has collected hair from numerous beauty salons over the years. Its diversity from anonymous donors carries each person's DNA, which remains intact even after death. Hence, the use of hair in the "Luna Window" installation exemplifies a human condition that exists even throughout the most pressing situations.

The Venezuela-born American artist has, for the past fifteen years, created alternate ambiguities with her wall art and installations, focusing on beauty, poverty and the environment. "The Last Tree", an impact environmental installation, debuted this summer at the ISE Cultural Foundation in Soho. Another significant installation centering on poverty, "Hung Out In The Projects," was shown at the Morean Art Center in St Petersburg and helped earn Reingold a 2010 Florida Fellowship. Other recent exhibits on this theme include "Flesh Art," Jersey City University, NJ; "Robes," College of St Elizabeth, NJ, and "Media Mix X4" at Art Lot, Brooklyn, NY. More at www.babsreingold.com.

13. David Medalla, Adam Nankervis, FF ALumns, at Gasometro, Porto Alegre, Brazil, Sept. 13, and more

David Medalla, FF alum, will give a performance with Adam Nankervis, in the Gasometro in Porto Alegre, Brazil, on September 13, 2013, at 6 p.m., as part of the 9th Bienal do Mercosul, curated by Sofia Hernandez Chong Cuy. The performance is entitled 'The Dancing Volcanos of Latin America'. It is a participatory inter-active live art work, a celebration of the music and poetry of Latin America, together with a lyrical evocation of plants, fruits and flowers that originally came from Latin American countries, such as the avocado and cocoa from Mexico, the potato from Peru, the pineapple from Brazil, and the chinchona from Paraguay. Brazilian artist Renata Padovan will video the live performance. Mariana Bogarin will coordinate the technical aspects of the performance.

After Porto Alegre, David Medalla will give a talk to the young artists of the nearby town of Pelotas.

After Pelotas, David Medalla and Adam Nankervis will return to Sao Paulo,
where there is a stunning solo exhibition by Adam Nankervis at the Gallery Emma Thomas. While in Medalla and Nankervis will be artists-in -residence at Galeria Baro,
directed by Maria Baro and Adriano Casanova, interspersed with brief sorties to Belo Horizonte and Rio de Janeiro.

The year 2013 has been and continues to be a very busy one for both Medalla and Nankervis. After their artists-residencies on Soumenline island in Helsinki, Finland, organised by Marita Muukkonnen, and their sojourn in the Philippines, where they performed at the Ateneo de Manila Art Gallery with Joaquin and Diego Lerma, Medalla and Nankervis created a participatory installation entitled 'The Silver Dollar' at 'another vacant space', the experimental art showroom which Adam Nankervis directs at Biesentalerstrasse 16, in the Wedding district of Berlin.

So far, this year (2013), David Medalla has given talks to artists in Deptford, England,
organised by Luisa Spina; engaged in a conversation about Philippine contemporary art
with Purissima Benitez-Johannot, at the opening of the exhibition of Philippine art
at the Musee du quai Branly in Paris, organised by Muriel Lardeau; participated in the
exhibition 'qui parle' curated by Mathieu Copeland at the Jeu de Paume in Paris;
and in the exhibition entitled 'Push Pins in Elastic Space', curated by Mexican artist
Gabriel Kuri and coordinated by Anne-Laure Riboulet at the Galerie Nelson-Freeman in Paris.

David Medalla was invited by Pablo Leon de la Barra and Carmencita Julia to give a talk
about Latin American artists of the 60s and 70s at the David Roberts Art Foundation in London. Medalla's iconic 'Stitch in Time' will be on loan from the Arts Council of England collection to an exhibition which is being curated by Francesco Manacorda at Tate Liverpool. David Medalla will be in the exhibition about 'Psychedelia' which Lars Bang Larson will curate at Raven Row, directed by Alex Sainsbury, in London, this autumn. Medalla has been invited by Grant Watson, senior curator of InIVA, to a conference about global culture which will be held in Stockholm, Sweden, this coming November 2013

Several books about David Medalla's life and art have been published recently,
including one edited by Purissima Benitez-Johannot (formerly of the Education Department of MoMA - the Museum of Modern Art of New York), published by the Vibal Foundation of the Philippines, and launched at Tate Britain, London,during the 'Migrations' exhibition and at the Musee du quai Branly in Paris; 'David Medalla : Works in the World' by Nicholas P. James, published by Cv/Visual Arts Archive, London; and 'Una carta para Adam Nankervis', published by aliaseditorial of Mexico, directed by Damian Ortega and coordinated by Sarah Shulz. 'Exploding Galaxies' the book on David Medalla's art by Guy Brett, with an introduction by Dore Ashton and an afterword by Yve-Alain Bois, published by Kala Press, London, in 1995, has now become a collector's much-sought-after item by bibliophiles world-wide.

David Medalla will be happy to give talks to art lovers anywhere in the world.
