A Music Theater Piece Written and Performed by M. Lamar

Out of the constant violent and sexuallized surveillance of the black male body, plantation overseer, the NBA, stop and frisk, prisons etc emerge M. Lamar's new music theater piece for countertenor and piano Surveillance Punishment and the Black Psyche. Utilizing multiple live and prerecorded camera feeds, this plantation fantasy explores surveillance from the point of view of a black man condemned to death for the murder of his male overseer with whom he has fallen in love. Surveillance plunges the deepest darkest depths of interracial desire an our interracial culture from the watch tower to the to the psyche of the black man being watched . Musically and theatrically Surveillance explores the internalization of power and oppression and how blackness is in white supremacy always under surveillance and subject to punishment.

5. Devora Neumark, FF Alumn, at Goethe Institut, Montreal, Quebec, Oct. 5


Silent (5") 3-channel video installation by Devora Neumark in collaboration with Unai Miquelajauregui and with the participation of Nadia Myre, Lina Dib, Richard Poejo, and Mariouche Gagné along with members of the Harricana team.

"The artist's critique of everyday life and search for meaning and renewal are what make them early recruits for gentrification" (Ley, 1996).

Devora Neumark and Unai Miquelajauregui's video installation Evicted is a site-specific work set in the storefront windows of the Goethe-Institut. Created to recall the artists and cultural workers who once inhabited the "10 Ontario" building, the camera lens focuses intently on the creative gestures of former tenants. This work invites a critical, yet poetic, commentary on Montreal's inner-city "upgrading" process and the changing downtown landscape while considering the labour that contributed to a once-vibrant sense of community.

This work is scheduled as part of the Limits and Renewals event to be held Saturday, October 5th at the Goethe-Institut (Montreal). For more information:

Thanks for your consideration,

Devora Neumark

Tuesday 12 November, 6-7:30pm
Eleanor Antin in Conversation with Malik Gaines and Alexandro Segade
Presented as part of Performa 13
This event will be held at Hunter College MFA Art Building, 205 Hudson Street

Eleanor Antin and My Barbarian members Malik Gaines and Alexandro Segade discuss legacies of theatricality, character invention, and constructions of gender and race in their work.

Exhibition Overview
Multiple Occupancy: Eleanor Antin's Selves focuses on the videos, photographic series, drawings and installations that express the multiple personae, or "selves," that Antin created and embodied between 1972 and 1991: a king, ballerinas, nurses and a film director. The issues the selves personify-destabilized identity, fictionalized history, transformation and archival slippage-reverberate in art of the present day.

Antin once declared, "I consider the usual aids to self-definition-sex, age, talent, time and space-as tyrannical limitations upon my freedom of choice." Her selves were of different genders, races, professions, historical eras and geographic locations, and their manifestations were as diverse as their stories. Some characters were embodied by Antin and captured in photographs and on video; others had paper doll or puppet surrogates. At times, their existence was known only through the drawings, texts and films they had ostensibly left behind. Multiple Occupancy presents these materials, providing a singular opportunity to see the multifaceted expression of Antin's gathered selves.

The exhibition is accompanied by a 128-page catalogue featuring texts by Emily Liebert, Huey Copeland, Malik Gaines and Alexandro Segade, and Henry Sayre, and an interview with Eleanor Antin.

Artist bio
Eleanor Antin works in photography, performance, video, film, installation, drawing, and writing. Solo exhibitions include those at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art; and a retrospective at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. She has performed internationally in venues including the Venice Biennale and the Sydney Opera House, and has written several books, most recently Conversations with Stalin (Green Integer). She is represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, New York, and is an emeritus Professor of Visual Arts at the University of California, San Diego.

7. Bibi Lencek, Kazuko Miyamoto, Sabra Moore, Vernita Nemec aka N'Cognita, FF Alumns, at Gallery Gaia, Brooklyn, Oct. 5-Nov. 2

October 5th- - November 2nd, 2013
Reception: Sunday, October 20th, 4-6 pm

Ursula Clark * Susan Happersett * Bibi Lencek * Kazuko * Sabra Moore *

Gaia Gallery in Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn is pleased to present GIRLTALK, a group exhibit of 9 artists addressing Feminity and Feminism in the 21st Century. The show opens Saturday October 4th and continues through November 3th, 2013. There will be a reception on Sunday October 20th from 4-6pm.

There is still much to debate and explore in these issues in the real world of work and politics. Bibi Lencek, Ursula Clark & Vernita Nemec have bought together 9 artists who make their art seriously, seductively and in some cases, scintillatingly, each in her own unique way creating art that makes her voice heard.

When we first presented "Girltalk" in 2005, we said "Yes. we are serious but not in a tormented, hard on, super sized way. We are celebrating and preserving the feminine and the feminist sensibility. We as women respond to the world with intuition, collaboration and nurturing. Through our bodies and our senses we know who we are and why we are here."

Since then, little has improved in the world for women. As a result, many of us are tormented inwardly as well as outwarding, asking why are women and their work still undervalued and often, even de-valued. In some cultures, we are still little more than "property" and in our own country we are not paid wages equal to those paid our male counterparts. Sadly, Feminism is still an ugly word to the unenlightened.

In the Art World too, women artists must still struggle to have their work seen in museums, commercial galleries and public collections. Still we persevere and with the help of enlightened male and female curators, writers, collectors and activists, the numbers are slowly changing.

The whole world is changing more rapidly and radically, particularly because of the growing importance of the virtual world and the growing realization that we must change to continue live on this planet. Crowd sourcing and the internet have equalized the playing field and we will continue to have our voices heard as we dare to speak louder and louder.

Gallery hours are Saturday & Sunday 1-6 PM

Hi everyone,

I hope you will all be able to attend this event! As we did for the Double Exposure, London/Helsinki in 2004, we are again going global! The London Group will be at Markfield Beam Engine Museum, 10 minutes walk from Tottenham Hale Station. The Lisbon Group will be in the Steam Power Hall at the Electricity Museum in Lisbon. You are invited to attend either location.

We will gather between 2pm and 2.30 in both locations. I will be in Lisbon but will be in contact via webcam on ipad. See below for further information. I will send a map at a later date.

Hope to see you via webcam or in person on October 20th!

Please gather at the both locations between 2.00 and 2.30pm
Filming will begin promptly at 2.30pm

POWER, the 16th ANNUAL GROUP PHOTOGRAPH, will be filmed simultaneously in London and Lisbon. Both sites house the power from an earlier age. We will gather in these "power houses" to perform a sequence of identical actions, communicating between the two groups using webcams and following directions on prompt cards.

The entire ANNUAL GROUP PHOTOGRAPH, including the videos from POWER will be shown at Arquivo Municipal de Lisboa Fotografico in March 2014.

THE ANNUAL GROUP PHOTOGRAPH is Ann-Marie LeQuesne's longest running project. It began in 1997 at Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design. Each year since then LeQuesne has asked participants to pose for a group photograph in a dramatic London location (different every year) and explore some aspect of group photography in response to the location. As an annual event it has become a temporal marker and it has attracted a core of faithful attenders as well as newcomers, attracted by a particular venue. The age of participants, to date, ranges from 9 days to 83 years. Previous venues include Tate Modern, backstage at the National Theatre, Arsenal Football Grounds, the stage of the Royal Albert Hall and Trafalgar Square, London/Senate Square, Helsinki (also filmed simultaneously, linking up with mobile phones and prompt cards).

Ann-Marie LeQuesne stages events in public places, working with groups of people. The actions she requests are simple but are often disrupted or altered by their location. All performances are filmed or photographed. Recent performances include Fanfare for Crossing the Road - New York (the latest performance in this ongoing international project) and News (a group read-in of newspapers that got messy).




10. Renate Bertlmann, Hans-Peter Feldmann, FF Alumns, at Richard Saltoun Gallery, London, UK, thru Oct. 25

Colouring: Works from the 70s
Verwandlungen (Transformation): Self Portraits from 1969
2 - 25 October

Richard Saltoun Gallery announces an exhibition of works by Hans-Peter Feldmann (b. 1941), recognised as one of the pioneering conceptual artists' from the 70s. The exhibition, drawn exclusively from a single private collection, focuses on Feldmann's key artistic practice of the time: the hand-coloured Xeroxes. Feldmann's work from this period is rarely exhibited, in part due to his decision to retire as an artist in 1979, which led him to either give away or destroy his work. Feldmann spent the next ten years in silence, running a souvenir shop in Düsseldorf and a mail order shop for thimbles. He returned to his career as an artist in 1989 and his reputation has grown in strength, as the first generation of conceptual art has been re-examined. Feldmann recalls his first experience of art through reproduction and his need to colour the black and white images in order to make the copy more beautiful: "to make them prettier, improve them, just as some people use a crocheted cover to improve the appearance of a toilet roll."

The exhibition will be displayed in tandem with a presentation in the office Renate Bertlmann - Verwandlungen (Transformation): Self Portraits from 1969 showcasing a set of 53 photographs by the radical Viennese feminist artist.


Hans-Peter FELDMANN was born in 1941 in Düsseldorf and grew up in the small town of Hilden. He studied painting in the 1960s at the University of Arts and Industrial Design Linz, Austria. He began working in 1968, producing the first of the small handmade books that would then become a signature part of his work. These simple books, entitled Bilde (Picture) or Bilder (Pictures), would include one or more reproductions from a certain type or category - knees of women, shoes, chairs, film stars, landscapes etc. - all presented without captions or accompanying text. After a ten year hiatus from his artistic career, Feldmann has since been recognized as a major figure of the first generation of conceptual artists. He was named winner of the 8th Biennal Hugo Boss Prize in 2010 and recent solo museum exhibitions include: Deichtorhallen, Hamburg (2013); Bawag Contemporary Foundation, Vienna; Serpentine Gallery, London; Hanger Bicocca, Milan (all 2012); Guggenheim Museum, New York (2011); Konsthall Malmo; Museo Centro De Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; and Kunsthalle Dusseldorf (all 2010).

Renate Bertlmann (b. 1943 Vienna, Austria) is one of the pioneering feminist artists, whose art practice focuses on representations of sex, love and male-female relationships. Belonging to the same generation as VALIE EXPORT and Birgit Jürgenssen, she was included in the radical feminist exhibition MAGNA. Feminismus: Kunst und Kreativität (1975), which represented a major political statement at the time.

Bertlmann has recently been included in Rebelle: Art & Feminism, MMKA, Arnhem, Netherlands (2009), Donna: avanguardia femminista negli anni '70 dalla Sammlung Verbund di Vienna, Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, Rome, Italy (2010), Me Myself & Them, Kunstlerhaus, Vienna, Austria (2012) andre.act.feminism #2: A Performing Archive (travelling 2011-2013). A major monograph on the artist will be published in 2014 by Sammlung Verbund.

15. Tina Keane, FF Alumn, at England & Co., London, UK, thru Nov. 9

England & Co
90-92 Great Portland Street, London W1W 7NT
T +44 (0)20 7436 1873
E info@englandgallery.com

5 October - 9 November 2013

Tina Keane is an internationally acclaimed artist who has worked since the 1970s in a wide variety of media, ranging from performance and installation to film, video, digital technologies and neon sculpture. An influential and consistently inventive artist, she is a leading exponent of media installation work who responds to a physical space and constructs her work around the use of light using video monitors and neon, "opening up a dialogue between the perceptions of the viewer and the work itself" (Art Monthly).

Keane's work has been exhibited and screened both nationally and internationally, and she has won awards from the Arts Council, Channel 4, the British Council and London Production Board. She was Lecturer in Film & Video at Central St Martin's College of Art from 1982-2012 where her students included Sandra Lahire and Isaac Julien. Keane was also a Research Fellow at St Martin's over the past decade, focused on the internet and digital creativity.

The major publication on Keane's work to date, Electronic Shadows, (Black Dog Publishing 2004), considered her significant role in contemporary video art and her place in artist's film from the late 1970s onwards. It documented much of Keane's work and noted her influence on various contemporary British artists: an influence that encompasses her pioneering use of neon from the late 1970s onwards; her performance and installation works; videos and films.

This exhibition includes several of Keane's works from the 1980s, including the dream-like Faded Wallpaper (1988) which explores visual perception, madness and the search for identity. Installation works with video and neon include Ghost Train (2002) a film that explores the space between two worlds, and Caution Thin Ice from 1993-94, an intriguingly complex combination of neon wall-text, poem-etched glass table, and video monitor displaying a continually spinning skater. As the writer and curator Guy Brett wrote in an essay published by Luxonline: "a work by Tina Keane is a subtle intermingling of social issues, aesthetic pleasure, technical experimentation and structural organization, or form."

Transposition, Keane's major performative projection from 1999-2000, was re-performed and screened in Tate Tanks in October 2012, and her new short film, Beauty in Motion will be screened for the first time at the London Film Festival this month.

Additional events and screenings during the exhibition will be listed on the gallery website.

Tuesday - Friday 11am - 6 pm

17. Nicolás Dumit Estévez, FF Alumn, at University of Toronto, Canada, Oct. 12

Symposium on Decolonial Aesthetics from the Americas
Toronto, Canada
10, 11, 12 October 2013
@ University of Toronto, Hart House (7 Hart House Circle)
Special issue of FUSE Magazine - September 2013

The Symposium on Decolonial Aesthetics From The Americas will host diverse artists and scholars of the Americas and the Caribbean. Featuring papers, workshops and performances, the symposium will provide an unparalleled opportunity to engage the diversity of contemporary aesthetic practices informed by decolonial thought. A special issue of FUSE Magazine, to be published in September 2013, will serve as a reader.

Decolonial aesthetics acknowledges and subverts the presence of colonial power and control in the realm of the senses. A decolonial option refers to a theoretical, practical or methodological choice geared toward de-linking aesthetics, at the epistemic level, from the discourse of colonialism that is embedded in modernity itself. It is an alternative approach that challenges the hegemony of modern/colonial aesthetics. By sharing their research and creative practices, symposium participants will develop and explore the decolonial option within the context of art practices in the Americas.

Organized by e-fagia organization in collaboration with FUSE Magazine, and Justina M. Barnicke Gallery / Hart House.
Gallery partnership: Unpack Studio (11 Willison Square)

Sponsored by Canada Council for the Arts

Keynote presentations are free and open to the public.

Keynote Lecture: Dr. Walter MIGNOLO / Duke University
7pm Thursday October 10th @ Music Room, Hart House (7 Hart House Circle)

This presentation will delineate four emerging trajectories or options in the artistic domain today that deviate from the original path that defined and characterized the concept of "art" and its relations to other spheres of life (economy, authority, gender, sexuality, knowledge, "race") since the Eighteenth Century. These trajectories are: 1.- art and market values; 2.- altermodernity; 3. dewesternizing art and the museum; 4.- decolonizing art and the museum. Each of these trajectories define themselves through its own sets of discourses, categories, concepts, institutions, magazines, web pages, sponsors etc. The "original path", (that is the philosophical discourse that in the eighteenth century couples aesthetics with taste and differentiated itself from poetics and catharsis) was in reality nothing more than an option that appeared to have succeeded in making us believe, for a while, that it was the only game in town.

I will preface the four emerging trajectories by outlining how "aesthetics" became a philosophical discourse responsible not only for establishing a certain criteria that (still) regulates "taste" but also for classifying different populations around the world who, according to Kant's conceptualization, were not apt to sense and understand the beautiful and the sublime. All "civilizing missions" after him were built on such beliefs. These constructed parameters, the sense of the beautiful and the sublime as well the invention of "art" as a philosophical category, and its articulation within a broader philosophical aesthetics, were all components of a point of departure and a respective set of intentions that created a peculiar category: "Similar but different." The oxymoron "similar but different" is intentional. It is a consequence of the imperial and colonial epistemic, aesthetic, religious and ontological difference invented by Western theology, secular philosophy and science.

Walter D. Mignolo is the William H. Wannamaker Distinguished Professor, and Director of the Center for Global Studies and the Humanities at Duke University. He has been working for the past 25 years on the formation and transformation of the modern/colonial world system and on the idea of Western Civilization. Among his major works are: The Darker Side of The Renaissance: Literacy, Territoriality and Colonization 1995, which received the Katherine Singer Kovacs Prize from the Modern Languages Association of America in 1996 (the book is being translated into Chinese and it is in his second edition). Local histories/Global Designs: Coloniality, Subaltern Knoweldge and Border Thinking, (2000), was translated into Spanish and Portuguese and is being translated into Korean, and it is going into its second edition. The Idea of Latin America, 2005, received the Frantz Fanon Award from the Caribbean Philosophical Association in 2006.

20. Magdalen Pierrakos, FF Alumn, in Brooklyn, NY, Oct. 12


"I was inspired by the situation in Hong Kong, but it has never been my intention to make films with any political content whatsoever. I'm more interested in the film [itself]. This film is about promises."

Yet while Wong emphasized the many mistakes by Mo-wan [film's protagonist], and, more generally, the many chances all of us miss in life, he also said, "How do you deal with your past? This can also be a question for a city. This is the question for the film." -filmmaker Wong Kar-Wei speaking at Cannes Film Festival about his
film 2046 from the book, WONG KAR-WAI by Peter Brunette, pub. University of Illinois Press

I was inspired by the situation in New York, but it has never been my intention to make projects with any political content whatsoever. I'm more interested in making something, the work [itself]. This installation is about ghosts. In an inner dialogue, people will emphasize the many mistakes they have made, and, more generally, the many chances all of us miss in life, but the question is -How do you deal with your past? This can also be a question for a city. This is the question for this project."

This is the story of an apartment in a Victorian tenement building next to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The vacant rooms of the apartment, marked, stained, chipped, peeling, have the eloquence of emptiness and silence; only air, ghosts, and dust are there. In this empty apartment are drawings of ghosts, my personal ghosts, and the ghosts of 10 Clermont Street. On October 16th of this month, the apartment will be demolished. -magdalen pierrakos
