1. LoVid, FF Alumn, at Smack Mellon, Brooklyn, opening Nov. 23

Roots No Shoots
Smack Mellon 92 Plymouth Street Brooklyn, NY http://smackmellon.org/index.php/exhibitions/upcoming/
Exhibition dates:
November 23 - January 5, 2014

Artists' Reception:
Saturday, November 23, 5-8pm

LoVid, the collaborative team of Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus, manipulates raw electrical signals to explore the many ways in which the human body and mind observe and process both natural and technological environments.
Their newest piece installed in the back gallery utilizes various types of monitors from different technological eras to play recordings they created in true DIY fashion--with LoVid's handmade synthesizer instruments in combination with unique tools from Experimental TV Center. Their prismatic-patterned low-fi imagery glistens and illuminates a colorful and complex array of cables within an otherwise pitch-black room.

With the sixth iteration of the Queens International, the Queens Museum's signature biennial evolves into yet another phase. Taiwan-based Meiya Cheng, the first non-New York-based curator to participate, joins the Museum's Hitomi Iwasaki on an exhibition emphasizing site-specificity as a collaborative practice between the curators and artists and their surroundings. As one of the inaugural exhibitions in the Museum's expanded space, Queens International 2013 echoes the institution's own hyperawareness of its new environs.

Artists' Talk
Programmed in conjunction with "Performance Archiving Performance," a presentation of works that engage archive as medium, on view in the Fifth Floor Resource Center from November 6, 2013-January 12, 2014.
The discussion surveys different artists' approaches to the concerns of archiving performance and how those concerns might be taken up and addressed by museums and institutional archives. The artists included in "Performance Archiving Performance" discuss the development of and future goals for their individual archiving projects with the curator. Participants include Yanira Castro, Kathy Couch, Jennifer Monson, Julie Tolentino, Sara Wookey, and Travis Chamberlain, Associate Curator of Performance.

'The Sky Remains the Same' Panel, 'How Do You Map the Sky?':
Presented in conjunction with Performa 13. Programmed in conjunction with "Performance Archiving Performance," a presentation of works that engage archive as medium, on view in the Fifth Floor Resource Center from November 6, 2013-January 12, 2014.
A discussion with Lia Gangitano, Joshua Lubin-Levy, Sarah Schulman, and Julie Tolentino explores how the elements and processes of "The Sky Remains the Same" have been defined to date and invites Tolentino's future archiving subjects to speculate on how they might like to define the terms for their eventual engagement with the project. The long-term future of the project will also be considered as it relates to the disintegration of bodies as authoring subjects and bodies as impermanent archives, while also placing Tolentino's work in a larger context of archives relating to performance and records of bodies in action. A discussion of the archiving of works by Lovett/Codagnone will be accompanied by a premiere screening of The Sky Remains the Same: The Archive of Lovett/Codagnone's "Closer" (1999-2005) and/or "For You" (2003), a work on video that proposes the camera as a catalyst and intermediary for archiving performance by multiple bodies into/onto the body of one person.

'The Sky Remains the Same' Archive of Lovett/Codagnone's Weighted:
After two weeks of archival research and open rehearsals, Julie Tolentino performs the archive of Lovett/Codagnone's Weighted. Originally performed at Judson Church in 2010, this work was selected by Lovett/Codagnone specifically to be archived by Tolentino. Weighted utilizes minimal and repetitive movements, deliberately referencing dance and theater avant-gardes, and is accompanied by a soundtrack that includes excerpts from The End of Imagination (1998) by Arundhati Roy. The short duet addresses failure as a "feasible, honorable" possibility, and questions the concept of death as the ultimate failure of life. This iteration of Tolentino's "The Sky Remains the Same" expands the notion of the body of the artist as an archive to include the presence of multiple archiving bodies. Constructed as a duet, Weighted is executed here in its authorized archival form as a four-hour durational repetition of the same score, performed in sequential pairings by John Lovett, Alessandro Codagnone, Julie Tolentino, and Stosh Fila. A talkback with the artists concludes the event.

Artist Info:
Julie Tolentino's career spans over two decades of dance, installation, and site-specific durational performance. Her diverse roles have included host, producer, mentor, and collaborator with artists such as Meg Stuart, Ron Athey, Madonna, Catherine Opie, David Rousseve, Juliana Snapper, Diamanda Galàs, Stosh Fila, Robert Crouch, Elana Mann, Mark So, Gran Fury, and Rodarte. Tolentino is deeply influenced by her extensive experience as a caregiver, an Eastern and aquatic bodyworker, a highly disciplined contemporary dancer, and as proprietress of Clit Club in New York. Her manifold, exploratory duet/solo practice includes installation, dance-for-camera, and durational performance engaging improvisation one-to-one score-making and fluids, including blood, tears, and honey. As an extension of her practice after twenty-five years in New York City, she designed and built a solar-powered live-work residency in the Mohave Desert called FERAL House and Studio, where she explores the remote forms of physical inquiry through landscape and texts. She has received numerous grants and fellowships. She is currently the editor of Provocations in the Drama Review-TDR (MIT Press). Her works have been commissioned by The Kitchen, Participant Inc., Invisible Exports, Performa '05, and in the UK by Spill Festival, Tramway, DanceExchange, and queerupnorth. Recent tours include England, Europe, Myanmar, the Philippines (at Manila Contemporary and Green Papaya Gallery), and Theaterworks in Singapore. She has been presented at Broad Art Space at University California Los Angeles (UCLA), Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), Commonwealth & Council, Honor Fraser, PSI19 at Stanford, Perform Chinatown, and Install Weho. In 2013, she created new performance and objects for the Reanimation Library Project in Joshua Tree, FIRE IN HER BELLY at Maloney Fine Art, LACE Auction 2013, Body/Mind at Cypress Gallery, High Desert Test Sites 2013, and an Aaron Turner collaboration at Night Gallery, Los Angeles. She will be premiering new works at UCLA, NYU Abu Dhabi, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in 2014. She is currently based in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree.

Lovett/Codagnone is an artist team working together in New York since 1995 using photography, performance, video, sound, and installation. Their work address issues of collective identity and relations of power in social structures focusing on the absorption of underground tactics of resistance. Important theoretical and aesthetic influences in their production are derived from the work of historical radical figures in literature, critical thinking, cinema, theater, and punk music. In 2008, they formed the band CANDIDATE with musician Michele Pauli. CANDIDATE performances have featured among others Jim Fletchers, Gary Indiana, and Kate Valk. Recent solo exhibitions: Francesco Pantaleone Arte Contemporanea, Palermo; Cantieri Culturali alla Zisa, Palermo, 2013; Museo Marino Marini, Florence; LAXART, Los Angeles, 2012; September Galerie, Berlin, 2011; Sculpture Center, New York, 2010; MoMA P.S.1, New York, 2007-08.

9. Louise Bourgeois, FF Alumn, at Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, Scotland, thru February 23, 2014

Louise Bourgeois
I Give Everything Away
26 October 2013-23 February 2014

The Fruitmarket Gallery
45 Market Street
Edinburgh, EH1 1DF

www.fruitmarket.co.uk
Curated by Frances Morris

Louise Bourgeois is one of the greatest and most influential artists of our time. In a career spanning seven decades, from the 1940s until her death in 2010, she produced some of contemporary art's most enduring images, making sculptures, installations, writings and drawings which, in mining her own psyche, have entered the collective unconscious.

Bourgeois's work is personal yet universal, rooted in the details of her own life, but reaching out to touch the lives of others. This exhibition of work on paper presents some of her most intimate work, both drawing and writing.

The exhibition begins with a labyrinthine presentation of Bourgeois's Insomnia Drawings, a remarkable suite of 220 drawings and writings made between November 1994 and June 1995. Created in the suspended state between sleeping and waking, The Insomnia Drawings contain all the major themes of Bourgeois's work and reveal the close link between drawing and writing that is such a key part of her practice. Also in the exhibition are two suites of large-scale works on paper, When Did This Happen? from 2007, and I Give Everything Away, made right at the end of the artist's life in 2010. A mix of writing, drawing and printmaking, these large works are both haunted and haunting.

This exhibition complements a major ARTIST ROOMS exhibition of work by Louise Bourgeois on display at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art-Louise Bourgeois, A Woman Without Secrets, Modern One, 26 October 2013 to 18 May 2014.

New publication
Has the day invaded the night or the night invaded the day?
Insomnia in the work of Louise Bourgeois
Published by The Fruitmarket Gallery to accompany the exhibition, this book focuses on the themes and ideas in the exhibition. The book is illustrated with a selection of Bourgeois's Insomnia Drawings and of her writings, and also includes new texts by Frances Morris and Philip Larratt-Smith. Buy here.

TALKING TRANSITION

IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES

Hiroko Masuike/The New York Times
For the first time in 12 years, New Yorkers have a new mayor.
So we're getting together and we're Talking Transition.

BEYOND ACCESS: (Re)Creating a Cultural Capital for All New Yorkers

Canal St & 6th Ave at Duarte Square

Mon, Nov 18, 3.30pm

Panelists: Manon Slome, President of No Longer Empty, and artists Jose Parla, Paul Ramirez Jonas, and artist/co-organizer of BFAMFAPHD.com Caroline Woolard. Moderated by Deborah Fisher, Executive Director of A Blade of Grass.

New York City has rich history of providing culture to all its citizens and a renown reputation as a cultural capital. But at this critical mayoral transition, the art world is a particularly vivid example of de Blasio's "tale of two cities." Who has access to the art world? Can NYC be a cultural capital when artists cannot afford to live and work in the city? Who pays for art when it's free? What are the best models for providing art and culture to all New Yorkers? Join us for a lively dialogue around the role that arts and culture play in a democratic society.

Children are welcome at the event. The Children's Museum of the Arts will host an information table to share ways of engaging youth in the arts.

13. Michelle Stuart, FF Alumn, at Various Small Fires, Los Angeles, CA, thru Dec. 7

Gallery: Various Small Fires. Venice Beach, LosAngeles CA.

CHRISTOPHER BADGER / TREVOR PAGLEN / KATIE PATERSON /
ROBERT SMITHSON / TAVARES STRACHAN / MICHELLE STUART

November 2nd - December 7th

Various Small Fires presents LIFE: ON THE MOON, a group exhibition tracing the immediate influence and lasting significance of the epochal July 20, 1969 moon landing on the early development of Land Art, represented by Robert Smithson and Michelle Stuart, in dialogue with recent works by Christopher Badger, Trevor Paglen, Katie Paterson, and Tavares Strachan.

In August 1969, LIFE Magazine published dozens of full-page stills from films of the moon's surface shot by Neil Armstrong in an issue titled "LIFE: On The Moon." The colonization and documentation of the moon's previously mysterious lunar landscape revealed it to be a desolate "non-site", while also forever shifting perception of fundamental landscape concepts such as scale, distance, accessibility, and jurisdiction.

Concurrently with the military-industrial "space race" leading up to the moon landing, American artists began to experiment outside of traditional studio practice, intervening at a terrestrial scale to initiate the Land Art movement. Michelle Stuart, an early member of this movement, produced a series of haunting mixed media meditations on paper in 1969 including Magnetic Forces, exhibited here for the first time, that subtly critique the techno-scientific mandate to strip the moon of its mystery. Fellow Land Art progenitor Robert Smithson's rarely noted lunar influence is illustrated by his 1972 Lake Edge Crescent proposal to transform a depleted Midwestern strip mine "non-site" into a crescent-marked earthwork resembling the moon's barren surface.

SkowheganCONVERSATIONS is a discussion series celebrating the significance of the dialogue that takes place outside of the studio, the classroom, and the gallery. Many generative moments at Skowhegan happen between formal discussions, critiques, and lectures, when participants and faculty have the opportunity to delve deeply into the topics that inform their work and practices. These moments happen while lounging after dinner, on the lawn in the afternoon sun, and in a myriad of other landscapes and times when boundaries are dissolved, and real discourse can take place.

Many thanks to The Drawing Center for hosting this event.

2013 Richard Hamilton Acquisition Prize announced

On Wednesday, November 6, the IFPDA Foundation announced the selection of The British Museum as the 2013 recipient of The Richard Hamilton Acquisition Prize. The prize, sponsored by Champion & Partners, the Boston-based global retained executive search firm, provides 10,000 USD for the Museum's acquisition of one or more prints from any period at the 2013 IFPDA Print Fair held in New York from November 6-10, 2013.

The prize funded the British Museum's acquisition of Ida Applebroog's 1985 linocut American Medical Association I and A Performance, 1977-1981, a set of artists' books self-published by Applebroog. These works, chosen by Stephen Coppel, the Jim Slaughter Curator of the Modern Collection in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum, are the first pieces by Applebroog to enter the Museum's collection. Both were exhibited at Diane Villani Editions, a publisher and dealer in prints by American artists, at the 2013 IFPDA Print Fair which concluded November 10.
About the artist

Throughout her long career, Ida Applebroog has been creating beguiling art filled with pointed commentary on gender politics and often ambiguous power struggles. Her simplified human forms with immediately recognizable bold lines are strongly evident in the linocut American Medical Association I. These themes are also evident in A Performance, where Applebroog combined elements of mail art, artists' books and performance art, all of which were becoming popular at the time. Applebroog called each edition of the pictorial books "performances" and in them she reproduced her simple little paintings of enigmatic figures titled Stagings. She then mailed the books to curators, friends, acquaintances and other artists all over the world.

The Richard Hamilton Acquisition Prize
Sponsored by Champion & Partners, the Boston-based global retained executive search firm, the prize provides 10,000 USD for the Museum's acquisition of one or more prints from any period at the annual IFPDA Print Fair held in New York in November.

Neil MacGregor, Director of the British Museum states "I am delighted that the prize has been awarded to Stephen Coppel and the British Museum. The Museum holds an extraordinary collection of prints and drawings but we are constantly seeking to acquire and add modern and contemporary works to ensure the collection continues to be representative. I am most grateful to Champion & Partners for allowing us this opportunity to acquire a key work for our modern American prints collection and one which will feature prominently in our forthcoming exhibition." The Museum is planning a major exhibition of modern American prints from the 1960s to the present, which will open in the autumn of 2016. It is intended as a sequel to The American Scene: Prints from Hopper to Pollock, which attracted an astonishing 415,000 visitors at the British Museum in 2008 and a further 75,000 during its subsequent three-venue UK tour with the support of the Terra Foundation for American Art.

About the British Museum's Collection of Prints and Drawings
The Department of Prints and Drawings contains the national collection of Western prints and drawings. It is one of the top three collections of its kind in the world. There are approximately 50,000 drawings and over two million prints dating from the beginning of the fifteenth century up to the present day.

About the IFPDA Print Fair
The Fair is organized annually by the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA), a vetted organization of expert art dealers. The 2013 prize is the second of three to be awarded each year by the IFPDA Foundation, which oversees the selection process.

About the IFPDA Foundation
The IFPDA Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization committed to the support of exhibitions, programs and scholarly projects that increase the awareness and appreciation of fine prints. Applications for the annual Richard Hamilton Acquisition Prize are solicited from museums internationally by the IFPDA Foundation which selects each year's recipient.

TRIANGLE OF RESISTANCE Music by Miya Masaoka & Video by Michelle Handelman
Sunday Nov 17, 8pm
Roulette, 509 Atlantic Ave. Brooklyn 11217
Purchase tickets: https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe/9818527
+ READ+ Interview with Michelle Handelman and Miya Masaoka
A live collaborative music and video performance between composer, musician, and sound artist Miya Masaoka and acclaimed filmmaker and video artist Michelle Handelman, Triangle of Resistance explores the various histories of social resistance, specifically the Japanese American internment camps, the Russian and Chinese revolutions. Featuring Masaoka's compositions for a new ensemble and conducted by Richard Carrick (co-founder/co-artistic director, Either/Or ensemble), the music of Triangle of Resistance combines new approaches to the classic ensemble format with experiments in temporality, gestures, and noise. Working with visual artifacts of resistance, Handelman creates a stirring sequence of images that gives voice to the evidence of lives lived under duress and under the radar. A bold new work by two great experimenters and daring artists, Triangle of Resistance embraces the personal and political dimensions of oppression, emerging from darkness into light.

19. Michel Auder, Julie Ault, Zachary Drucker, David Hammons, Sherrie Levine, Ben Kinmont, Charlemagne Palestine, FF Alumns, in The Whitney Biennial 2014, Manhattan

The 2014 Whitney Biennial will take a bold new form as three curators from outside the Museum-Stuart Comer (Chief Curator of Media and Performance Art at MoMA), Anthony Elms (Associate Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia), and Michelle Grabner (artist and Professor in the Painting and Drawing Department at the School of the Art Institute, Chicago)-each oversee one floor, representing a range of geographic vantages and curatorial methodologies.

Donna De Salvo, Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Programs at the Whitney, noted: "The 2014 Biennial brings together the findings of three curators with very distinct points of view. There is little overlap in the artists they have selected and yet there is common ground. This can be seen in their choice of artists working in interdisciplinary ways, artists working collectively, and artists from a variety of generations. Together, the 103 participants offer one of the broadest and most diverse takes on art in the United States that the Whitney has offered in many years."

This Biennial will be the last to take place in the Whitney Museum of American Art's building at 945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street before the Museum moves downtown to its new building in the spring of 2015. This is the 77th in the Museum's ongoing series of Annuals and Biennials begun in 1932 by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney.

Whitney curators Elisabeth Sussman and Jay Sanders, who organized the widely acclaimed 2012 Biennial, will advise on the exhibition.

20. Ed Ruscha, FF Alumn, at Ransom Center, Austin, TX

The New York Times
November 13, 2013
Ruscha's Archives Go to the Ransom Center in Texas
By ALLAN KOZINN
The Harry Ransom Center, a museum and research library at the University of Texas, Austin, has acquired the archives of Ed Ruscha, the prolific Pop Art master who is best known for his quirky thematic photography books, like "Twentysix Gasoline Stations" (1963) and "Every Building on the Sunset Strip" (1966), and for his word paintings, in which words are manipulated in ways that transform their meanings or suggest amusing tangential underpinnings.

When the Obamas had their White House living quarters decorated with paintings borrowed from Washington museums, in 2009, they chose one of Mr. Ruscha's paintings, "I Think I'll...," a meditation on indecision.

"Ruscha is one of the most important artists of his generation," Peter Mears, the curator of art at the center, said of the 75-year-old California artist in a statement. "His career, beginning with the 1960s Pop Art movement, spans a half-century of modern and contemporary art practice."

The archives include five personal journals packed with notes and sketches, as well as photographs, contact sheets and annotations that show how several of his books - from "Twentysix Gasoline Stations" through his 2010 illustrated version of Jack Kerouac's "On the Road" - were created. (Kerouac's own notebooks are already in the center's collection.) Also included are materials to do with his short films, "Miracle" (1975) and "Premium" (1971).

After the materials are cataloged, they will be available to students, researchers and the public. In the meantime, the center is showing a selection of items from the archives in its lobby through Dec. 1. Jennifer M. Tisdale, a spokeswoman for the center, said that the archives cost $2 million, and that 80 percent of the cost was covered by donors, among them Michael and Jeanne Klein; the Marlene Nathan Meyerson Foundation; and Mark Wawro and Melanie Gray.

"The Ransom Center is committed to the idea of having the public share in these treasures through exhibits and also encouraging scholarship by allowing the study of these important materials and subjects" Mr. Ruscha said in a statement. "The thought that my working documentation could be in this magnificent repository is a wonderful honor and destination of great respect. I now see that the Ransom Center is the home to end all homes."
