3. Cave Dogs, FF Alumn, at Portland Fringe Festival, Portland, ME, June 28-29, and more

Cave Dogs perform Sure-Minded Uncertainties at the Portland Fringe Festival in Maine. Show are on Sat. June 28th at 12:30pm and Sun. June 29th at 4:00pm at the SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress Street, Portland, ME.

If you can't make it to the shows at PortFringe, come up to The Opera House in Boothbay Harbor to see Sure-Minded Uncertainties on Wed. July 2nd at 7:30pm.

Cave Dogs is a nationally recognized performance art group whose work has been described by Albin Zack of the Woodstock Times as "magical, like watching dreams cross into the conscious world and render an evocative portrait of life through a dance of light." With performance pieces that tell life stories using large-scale shadow projections, video imagery, spoken narrative, and an original soundtrack, David Wildman of The Boston Globe has called their work "a startling original way of telling a story. Fluid camera-like angles dance in wild imagination across the screen." Cave Dogs productions conjure both the dreamlike quality of early experimental film and the humor of contemporary animation.

In Sure-minded Uncertainties Cave Dogs employs its signature visual and sound effects to explore how the interplay of materialism, spiritualism, technology and stewardship of the earth shapes our modern world. Part abstract documentary and part fictionalized realism, Sure-minded Uncertainties follows a range of fantastical characters that navigate a series of transformations through five short stories. Directed by Suzanne Stokes with video and production direction by Jim Fossett, the piece is written by Maria Jansdotter-Farr and Cave Dogs company members Ted Conway, Douglass Keller, Adam Mastropaolo, and Trudy Trutwin, with an original sound track by Dean Jones. Sure-minded Uncertainties addresses mankind's complicated relationship to nature and creates a rich experience that documents and preserves a collective anthropological voice .

7. Ann-Marie LeQuesne, FF Alumn, at AC Institute, Manhattan, opening June 19

Ann-Marie LeQuesne "TO:" premiere at AC Institute
June 19 - July 2, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 19, 2014. 6-8pm
Ann-Marie LeQuesne stages performances with groups of people in public places. Her invitation to participate is an open one. The actions are simple, but are often disrupted or altered by their location. LeQuesne invites both the participation of her collaborators and the attention of those passing by. The action is then filmed or photographed, becoming material for a subsequent re-staging from the documentation.

TO: was performed at the James A. Farley Post Office at 421 8th Avenue in NYC on May 3rd, 2014. Ann-Marie LeQuesne staged actions typical of a post office visit on the iconic steps leading into the building. Often the re-enactments blended seamlessly into the actions already taking place.

Ann-Marie LeQuesne will feature different videos at the AC Institute every two weeks through July 26, 2014. Please visit our website at www.artcurrents.org for more details.

9. Marcus Young, FF Alumn, at Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN, June 27-Sept. 19

Dear Friends of Grace Minnesota,

You are invited to join Marcus Young and friends as Grace Minnesota starts its 7th season of dancing in public for inner-life exploration. Don't You Feel It Too? is a practice of dancing truthfully, playful provocation, social healing, and personal liberation. It's also ridiculously fun!

Join us any of these Fridays, 5:30-7:30pm, on Nicollet Mall: June 13, 27; July 11, 25; Aug 8, 22; Sept 5, 19. All sessions are free and open to the public.

The practice is simple. Meet at Peavey Plaza at 5:30pm. Bring headphones and an mp3 player with your favorite songs. Wear comfortable shoes for dancing on concrete, and leave everything else behind. The first half-hour you receive instruction and get comfortable. Then we dance and transcend our fear.

Questions? Contact DYFIT@graceminnesota.org. All are welcome. Let us know you're coming, or just drop in for one session or all 8. Learn more at http://www.graceminnesota.org/dyfit01.html

Like yoga, Don't You Feel It Too? is a practice of mind-body-spirit. Whether dancing on the street scares or delights you, this practice has something to offer. If you want to get exercise, make discoveries, relieve stress, protest boredom, or experience guerrilla art, there is a place for you in Don't You Feel It Too?

11. Erica Van Horn, FF Alumn, publishes new book

A new title from Uniformbooks

Living Locally
Erica Van Horn

Foreword by Susan Howe
66 black and white drawings

ISBN 978 1 910010 02 0
144pp, 234 x 142mm, sewn paperback with flaps


Living Locally selects entries from a daily journal written over five years about rural life in and around a farming valley in Tipperary, to the north of the Knockmealdown Mountains. With needle-sharp observation and in plain words, Van Horn makes remarkable what might otherwise have gone unrecorded: the familiarity of neighbours, of animals and of weather, the regularity of the patterns of transaction on roads and in nearby villages and towns, and, from an outsider's perspective, the unfamiliarity of speech and custom. What results is a human geography whose immediacy recalls earlier local and rural records and enquiries, such as the diary of Francis Kilvert in the Welsh Borders in the 1870s, or Cecil Torr's recollections from his Dartmoor village, Small Talk at Wreyland. In common with these is a concern with both the colloquial and the vernacular, and the strangeness found in such a concentration of repetition and usage.

Susan Howe writes in her Foreword: "Erica Van Horn has produced a meticulous field guide of what it means to be an American discovering the embedded, entangled mysteries of being Irish."

12. Tomislav Gotovac, FF Alumn, at Galerie Michaela Stock, Vienna, Austria, opening June 26

27th June - 30th August 2014
Exhibition opening: Thursday, 26th June 2014, 6 pm
WHERE: Galerie Michaela Stock, Schleifmühlgasse 18, 1040 Vienna

Catalogue presentation Tomislav Gotovac PURE WORDS with contributions by Suzana Milevska and Darko Šimičić.

In the exhibition titled Pure Words works from the late 1970s to 1990s of Tomislav Gotovac will be on display at the Galerie Michaela Stock.

The art exhibited challenges traditional assumptions that text (language) is the primary and most efficient communication medium. Words are abstract visual forms as well as forms that represent written (or spoken) language. They represent an irrepressible urge to picture language and evidence of the writer's use of words and images to amplify the form and effect of a message. Tomislav Gotovac is a perfect example of a conceptual, multimedia artist who used words in various media. He has produced works in which words are not the form, but the content of his expression.
(excerpt from the text Words, Words, Words...by Tomislav Gotovac by Jadranka Vinterhalter/Words & Images, ed. by Branka Stipančić, 1995, p.73)



13. Heather Cassils, FF Alumn, at Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, Manhattan, thru August 3, and more

My work is in a group show that opened at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art :

After Our Bodies Meet: From Resistance to Potentiality

Exhibition dates: June 5 - August 3, 2014
Opening Reception: June 5, 2014 6-8 pm

After Our Bodies Meet: From Resistance to Potentiality opens at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art on June 5 and runs through July 27, 2014. Presented as part of the 12th annual All Out Arts Fresh Fruit Festival, the exhibition explores queer feminist artists' responses to dominant notions about the body from the 1970s to present day. Reflecting the ever-growing diversity of feminist art, this exhibition provides a cross-cultural examination of how artists represent the body to challenge past and present forms of oppression and to envision a queer future.

After Our Bodies Meet: From Resistance to Potentiality, curated by Alexis Heller, traces the efforts of contemporary queer artists within the legacy of early feminist art. Bridging these historic and contemporary endeavors not only honors the pioneers of gender-conscious art but also highlights the evolution of feminist thought within artistic representations of queer bodies, including some that question the gender binary on which feminism was first conceived.

The works of Tee Corinne and Cathy Cade sought to document and empower the burgeoning lesbian feminist community, emphasizing the female body's capacity for love, agency and pleasure outside of the heterosexual imagination. Today, South African artist and "visual activist" Zanele Muholi recognizes this same need to preserve marginalized histories, bringing attention to underrepresented populations of black lesbian and transgender individuals, as well as the targeted violence that threatens their existence. For her ongoing series Faces and Phases, Muholi's black-and-white photographic portraits archive the diversity and resilience of her black queer community in South Africa and abroad, while for Isilumo siyaluma (2006-2011), Muholi generates a series of kaleidoscopic digital collages of menstrual blood stains to memorialize the rape and murder of black lesbians in South Africa.

Heather Cassils' dynamic performance, Becoming An Image(2012), also evokes the brutalization of queer bodies as the artist's mixed martial arts blows are imprinted onto a 1,500-pound block of clay. Staged in complete darkness, Cassils' strenuous movements are only made visible by flash photography, capturing fleeting moments of the action, which, like the artist's experience as a transgender man, is in a continuous process of change and becoming.

Sophia Wallace's ongoing mixed media project CLITERACY, exposes the irony of society's obsession with and ignorance of female sexuality. CLITERACY, 100 Natural Laws (2012) includes a monumental wall of texts which challenge phallocentric biases in science, law, philosophy, politics and the art world. Wallace's focus on the clitoris and female pleasure serves to question and counteract the history of misinformation regarding women's bodies and the concomitant oppression therein.

Inspired by Indian comic books, Hindu mythology and American science fiction Chitra Ganesh's digital collages also draw from disparate materials and cultural sources to offer alternate narratives of female sexuality and power. Ganesh's surrealistic and hybridized female forms collide beauty and abjection, commemorating marginalized and excluded figures from art, history and literature. In Ganesh's work, the body serves as a site of transgression and revision, tearing apart stereotypes and histories only to reassemble them into a radical vision of corporeality, citizenship and desire.

This exhibition demonstrates how feminist artists have repositioned the political potential of activism into art, allowing critiques of the past to provide space for imagining new queer possibilities. Featuring work from Laura Aguilar, Cathy Cade, Heather Cassils, Tee A. Corinne, Chitra Ganesh, Allyson Mitchell, Zanele Muholi, Catherine Opie, Sophia Wallace, and Chris E. Vargas, these artists subvert the mythologies and ideals surrounding lesbian and transgender bodies and foreground queer bodies obscured by invisibility. There will be an Opening Reception on June 5th from 6 to 8 pm, as well as various events throughout the exhibition that explore these important issues and themes. Visit freshfruitfestival.com for a full schedule of events for All Out Arts Fresh Fruit Festival which will be held from July 7 to 20, 2014.

17. Sarah Mattes, FF Intern Alumn, at Roos Arts, Rosendale, NY, thru July 26

Roos Arts Presents
by the clock
June 14 - July 26, 2014

Included in this exhibition are a series of drawings, oil clay covered and embellished objects, and photographs. The drawings represent a near contact between hands or illustrate a process of making. Obscured and altered by their clay coating, the objects become a sign or image of the thing they might have been. The surface of the objects also represents the symbology of the process that made them. There is a pacing and rhythm to the objects that is mirrored in the images and repeated in the drawings and photographs. By representing the hand simultaneous with the replacement of the hand by image or record, the work investigates the necessity for both the referent and physical, and the intimate space of both as an extension of the bodily sphere.

Sarah Mattes was born in 1984 in New Jersey, received her BFA from Colgate University and is currently pursuing her MFA at Mason Gross School of the Arts. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

18. Franc Palaia, FF Alumn, at The Ice House Restaurant, Poughkeepsie, NY, June 16

The Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Ice House Restaurant invite you to the Ribbon Cutting to dedicate a new mural by noted artist, FRANC PALAIA on Monday, June 16th from 4-7pm. Please join us to dedicate the new mural at the Hudson River waterfront. The 9'x18' painted mural image is taken from a well-known black & white archival photograph that depicts the Poughkeepsie harbor in 1888 with the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge under construction and almost completed. The mural is situated on the restaurant's north face and can be seen from the Walkway Over the Hudson. The Ice House mural is a wonderful addition to the many historic Public Artworks located in and around downtown Poughkeepsie. The building and site where the Ice House Restaurant is located was an actual ice house where ice harvested from the Hudson River was stored, inventoried, sold and distributed throughout the Hudson Valley as far as NYC. The Ice House is located adjacent to the river in Waryas Park, Poughkeepsie, NY. For more information call
Come meet the artist, FRANC PALAIA , an award-winning artist and muralist with many memorable murals in and around Poughkeepsie and the Tri-State area. Light refreshments will be served. Mural title: "Poughkeepsie Harbor, 1888". The image here is the original inspirational photograph and not the painted mural.

20. Brendan Fernades, FF Alumn, at Berliner Festspiele, Berlin, Germany, June 29, and more

Dear Friends!

I hope this message finds you in the best of spirits and enjoying summer. I am currently in Vancouver where I am doing a residency with the Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG). I am excited about this time for research, where I am going back to the dance studio after 15 years to create a solo performance for myself. As well at the CAG I am leading an emerging dance workshop for youth with Justine A. Chambers, Delia Brett and Daelik.

I am also very excited and honoured to be collaborating with my dear friend and musician "How to Dress Well" for the Berliner Festspiele. In this project "How to Dress Well" will play his new album from start to finish with a string ensemble, while performer Simon Portigal and myself will create a dance for the work. If you are in Berlin on June 29th please come and see the show - it aims to be a very exciting collaboration.

Lastly BOMB Magazine featured my show at the Abrons Art Center with an interview with the curators of the show and me, where we talk about dance and my work with ballet.

As always thank you for your unending support and Happy Summer.

Cheers, Brendan Fernandes
