The Library Vaccine
September 25- November 9, 2014
Opening Wednesday, September 24, 6-8pm

Artists Space Books & Talks
55 Walker Street

Artists Space Exhibitions
38 Greene Street, 3rd Floor

The Library Vaccine is an exhibition that presents a number of discrete collections of books in order to sample art's distinctive relationship to the book form in its singularity, and in its states of reproduction, distribution and accumulation. The exhibition addresses the book as a particular technology, and in its collective state of the private collection, reading room or library, as a social machine- registering social and personal histories, and articulating structures of knowledge and value through the relations between its parts.

The exhibition title is taken from a text by the curator and writer Edit deAk that introduced the 1981 Printed Matter catalogue. In this short piece she referred to artists' books as "the library vaccine, a healing agent formed from the very disease they cure." Each section of the exhibition presents a collection that loosely corresponds to a decade between the 1960s and the present day, yet it does not seek to survey a recent history of books in or as art; rather it takes the tension between book-as-text and book-as-object as a starting point. The exhibition marks a movement from the egalitarian, curative aspirations of the book as distributed artwork, to these aspirations' subsumption within broader tendencies towards collecting, archiving and the re-circulation of knowledge.

Some sections of the exhibition revolve around curatorial or editorial frameworks that highlight artists' use of the book form, while others focus on the collection or library as a holistic entity. In these contexts the act of collation emphasizes shifts between the private and the common, the artwork and the artifact. The roles of artist, publisher and collector are seen to overlap, and the sequenced content of both the individual book and the massed collection provides sites for the production and articulation of meaning. In each instance, the mode of physical display of the books is considered as an extension of their individual or collective character.

The Defaced Library Books of Kenneth Halliwell & Joe Orton
Between 1959 and 1962 the playwright Joe Orton and his partner writer and artist Kenneth Halliwell undertook an illicit project, removing books from the shelves of their local London library, collaging their covers and altering sections of text before returning them. Orton and Halliwell were subsequently arrested, serving six months for "malicious damage." The books they "defaced" are still held in the collection of the library, and are now conserved as esteemed cultural artifacts.

The Colin de Land Library
"The Colin de Land Library" is the title given posthumously to the collection of books that occupied the shelves of the New York gallery American Fine Arts, Co. at the time of the death of its owner Colin de Land in 2003. The curator Jackie McAllister stated at the time: "when entering American Fine Arts, Co., the viewer is invited to engage any number of effects pertaining to questions of meaning/production." As such, the "library" stands as both a document of AFA's program and the eclectic interests of Colin de Land, and of this expanded notion of effects at work within a topological space of art and ideas.

The Library of Helen DeWitt
Writer Helen DeWitt, author of the novels The Last Samurai (2000), Your Name Here (with llya Gridneff, 2008) and Lightning Rods (2011), has since the late 1990s waged a quiet war on the intransigence of the social machines that govern language. While she has described the intellectual and artistic urge towards the purification of language as "something like display of impotence in the face of chaos," in her novels and blog-writing she has addressed "debugging the system of signs" from the perspective of linguistics, coding, the visualization of data, and the vagaries of the publishing world. She sees her own writing, and the revision and editing it's subject to, as an epistemological open field in dialogue with that represented by her library.

2. Lily Tomlin, FF Alumn, to receive Kennedy Center Honor

The New York Times
Hanks and Tomlin Among New Kennedy Center Honorees
By EMMARIE HUETTEMAN
September 4, 2014

WASHINGTON - The letter informing Lily Tomlin that she had been selected as one of this year's five honorees by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts sat unopened on her desk for days.

Ms. Tomlin - the 75-year-old comedian whose accolades include seven Emmy Awards and the center's 2003 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor - said she assumed it was only an invitation to the ceremony.

Despite her initial disbelief at being chosen, Ms. Tomlin, a veteran of television shows like "The West Wing" and "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In," has had a few days to digest the news that she will receive one of Washington's most prestigious arts awards. I'm fairly well-adapted to it now," she said in a phone interview Wednesday. he singer the Rev. Al Green, actor Tom Hanks, ballerina Patricia McBride and singer-songwriter Sting will also receive the 37th annual Kennedy Center Honors in December, recognizing them for excellence in the performing arts, the institution announced Thursday.

George Stevens Jr., who created the Kennedy Center Honors in 1978, said he was aiming for the American equivalent of knighthood and similar distinctions that recognize the performing arts. And after critics noted a lack of transparency in the selection process, as well as the relatively few Latino honorees, the center expanded its nomination committee and began accepting suggestions from the public for last year's honorees.
If you look at the history of the honors, "it demonstrates both the richness and the diversity of the performing arts in America," said Mr. Stevens, who continues to co-produce the ceremony.

The medal isn't necessarily a capstone to already distinguished careers. Sting, the former Police frontman who has sold nearly 100 million albums over his career, is mounting a musical on Broadway, "The Last Ship." It is inspired by the 62-year-old musician's childhood near a shipyard in northeast England.

"My whole thing about music, about my career, is to try and surprise everybody, to try to surprise myself and not just be doing one thing," Sting said.

At 58, Mr. Hanks "has a versatility that ranks him among the greatest actors of any generation," the Kennedy Center's chairman, David M. Rubenstein, said in a statement. Having won awards and acclaim for numerous films, including "Philadelphia," "Forrest Gump" and "Saving Private Ryan," Mr. Hanks said he was "a fortunate man" for finding passion in his work, according to a statement provided by the center.
One of Rolling Stone magazine's "100 Greatest Artists of All-Time," Mr. Green was responsible for soulful hits like "Let's Stay Together." After performing at the Kennedy Center Honors tribute to Tina Turner in 2005, Mr. Green, now 68, said he wondered if his chance would come.
But he added in a phone interview from Memphis, where he is the pastor of the church he founded in 1976, "All this has been amazing."

Ms. McBride was just 18 when she became a New York City Ballet principal dancer, performing to high praise with partners like Mikhail Baryshnikov over the next 28 years - including roles designed for her by George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins.
"To be awarded for something that gave me so much in my life, to receive an honor for that - what could be better?" said Ms. McBride, now 72.

The honorees will receive their medals Dec. 6 during a dinner at the State Department
hosted by Secretary of State John Kerry. They will be recognized with a White House reception and then will sit with President Obama and Michelle Obama at a gala on Dec. 7 featuring performances and tributes by fellow artists.

The Kennedy Center Honors will be broadcast on CBS on Dec. 30 at 9 p.m.

4. Donald Daedalus publishes new edition of "Atalanta in Calydon"

Reviving Algernon Charles Swineburne's as a new e-book as part of his project bookEnd at the Center for Book Arts. Consider decadent by many of his contemporaries, still Swineburne was undeniably a master of meter and words. Atalanta in Calydon was first printed by William Morris in 1865, written in the form of a Greek tragedy. Lyrical and ironic, this version of Atalanta aims to introduce Swineburne's to a new generation of poetry lovers.

Call no man happy while he lives.

7. Barbara Hammer, FF Alumn, at Cooper Union, Manhattan, Sept. 16

Free Public Lecture: Canceled from Memory
Cooper Union Interdisciplinary Seminar
Tuesday, September 16, 7 p.m.
The Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)
Visual artist Barbara Hammer retrieves archival scraps and fragments revealing historical memory loss that she reinserts in her work through imaginative fiction, suggestive montage and open abstraction. This free public lecture draws on 40 years of practice that includes film, video, performance, installation, photography and collage.
Working primarily in film and video, Barbara Hammer's work reveals and celebrates marginalized peoples whose stories have not been told. Her cinema is multi-leveled and engages an audience viscerally and intellectually with the goal of activating them to make social change. She has been honored with four retrospectives in the last three years: The Museum of Modern Art in New York City, Tate Modern in London, Jeu de Paume in Paris, and the Toronto International Film Festival.
She is most well known for making the first explicit lesbian film in 1974, Dyketactics, and for her trilogy of documentary film essays on queer history: Nitrate Kisses (1992), Tender Fictions (1995) and History Lessons (2000). She is currently a Guggenheim Fellow (2013-14) working on a film on Elizabeth Bishop.
Barbara Hammer teaches each summer at The European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. She is represented by the gallery Koch Oberhuber Woolfe in Berlin, Germany. She lives and works in New York City and Kerhonkson, New York.
Barbara Hammer appears as part of the Interdisciplinary Seminar, created as a discussion series on artistic practice for the students of the Cooper Union School of Art and the creative community that surrounds them. Lectures are free and open to the public.

11. Pat Steir, FF Alumn, publishes new book

The Brodsky Center at Rutgers University is pleased to announce the publication of Cry Stall Gaze, a collaboration between the artist Pat Steir and the poet Anne Waldman.

Pat Steir is a well-known American artist who rose to prominence in the 1970s. Her most recent large-scale paintings incorporate pours of paint that saturate the canvas in fields of lush color.

Anne Waldman is noted as a member of the Outrider experimental poetry movement and as a cultural activist; she is the author of over 40 collections of poetry and often works with visual artists, musicians, and dancers.

For this project, Pat Steir responded to Waldman's poem by creating paintings, which were photographed, scanned, and then turned into photogravure plates to be printed. Steir's skill in the graphic arts is evident in this work as is her interest in ancient Chinese art, which combines poetry with images. This book is dedicated by the artist and the poet to those weary of war.

12. Betty Beaumont, FF Alumn, at 3A Gallery, Manhattan, thru Oct. 11

BETTY BEAUMONT
THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE

September 8 - October 11, 2014
Opening reception:
Monday, September 8, 6-8pm

3A Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of New York based artist Betty Beaumont. This is her first solo exhibition with the gallery.

Beaumont has for years produced thoughtful and provocative work in a variety of media including photography, installations, public interventions and new media. Her work challenges global social awareness, as well as socioeconomic and ecological practices. Beaumont has investigated such issues as energy and species diversity and is also involved with solution-based sustainability strategies, which reflect contemporary, historic and cultural perspectives and environmental and social conditions.

Beaumont's exhibition That Obscure Object Of Desire takes the idea of the object of desire and all of the myths that surround it and puts into three works ideas which deconstruct the fetishized icons of beauty and the branding of identity.

With the tools of deconstruction and notions of sexuality and representation, Beaumont uses three elements. First, the language of narcissism; second, questioning the idea of beauty in a crushed shopping bag first presented in two dimensions as a photograph, then as a moving object on a pedestal; and finally, the motor, which is simultaneously functional and a symbol of the machine behind advertising, branding and the loss of autonomy and identity.

The photograph Crushed 001 (2012) takes the three-dimensional bag out of reality and puts it in a frame, flattening the image of the bag (the photographed object), becoming the symbol of the symbol, that which we desire to possess. The bag remains pristine, inviolate, removed from our ability to touch or grasp.

The sculpture Untitled (Crushed, yellow with black) #332 (2014) presents the bag on a moving pedestal heightening the allure of the artifact under glass. The way it is presented as sculpture is enhanced by placing it in the vitrine, removed from the individual. The brand or the logo is hidden the way the seductiveness is hidden. Yet there is still a recognition. The sculpture is understood by experiencing both front and back of the work. The sound of the motor turning the bag on the pedestal suggests the sound of voracious consumption. The sound lures the viewer to view the motor, which is also encased in glass. Although the bag has been crushed it is not detritus. We want to own, touch or posses it. In its cast off state it is fetishized as a precious object. The recent implosion of the economy crushed the bag, transforming it into a sculpture that has architectural references, no longer retain its original use. The on-going Untitled (Crushed) works are part of a project begun in 2008 with the Great Recession.

I'd Rather Be... (1991) is a full-length mirror work that borrows a quote from Donna Haraway's Cyborg Manifesto "I'd rather be a cyborg than a goddess," and prints it horizontally near the top of the mirror. When one looks into the mirror while contemplating beauty of the self, one is struck by a statement across one's body that poses the question, What forms the lens you see yourself through? This deconstructive comment cuts the myth of beauty in two.

The sculpture Untitled (Crushed, yellow with black) is indeed on a pedestal like an object of desire. That Obscure Object Of Desire.

Betty Beaumont has received numerous grants and awards including the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of California at Berkeley, Creative Capital Foundation grants, National Endowment for the Arts fellowships and grants, New York State Council on the Arts fellowships and Pollock-Krasner Foundation grants. She has shown at museums and galleries around the world including The Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Alexandria, Egypt, Whitney Museum of Art, MoMA P.S. 1, Queens Museum, Carriage Trade Gallery (NYC), American Fine Art (NYC), Damon Brandt Gallery (NYC), Hudson River Museum (Yonkers, NY), Katonah Museum (Katonah, NY), National Museum of Modern Art (Kyoto and Tokyo, Japan), Museum Het Domein (Sittard, Netherlands), Bibliotéca Nacional José Marti (Havana, Cuba), Galerie Engstrom (Stockholm, Sweden), Bea Voigt Galerie (Munich, Germany), Stalinova Pomniku, Letenske Plani (Prague, Czech Republic), Ota Gallery (Tokyo, Japan) and the Richard Demarco Gallery (Edinburgh, Scotland). Texts on Beaumont's work have been written about by a number of art historians and critics including Nancy Princenthal, Jeffrey Kastner, Brian Wallis, Gary Indiana, Martin Kemp, Patricia C. Philliips, Kay Larson, Michael Kimmelman, Amanda Boetzkes, Barbara Metilsky, Sara Selwood, Kim Levin, Amy Gamerman, Marilu Knode and Robert Stefanotti. Beaumont has held academic appointments at the University of California at Berkeley, SUNY Purchase, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, New York University and Columbia University in New York City.

3A Gallery is located at 179 Canal Street, New York, NY 10013. Gallery hours are Friday and Saturday from 11:00am-5:00pm.

13. Peter Baren, FF Alumn, at Blueroof Art Festival, Chengdu, China, Sept. 19-Oct. 31

Peter Baren, FF Alumn, will be featuring with BLIND DATES WITH THE HISTORY OF MANKIND- the publication- in
Graft and Transplant" Entity Concept Exhibition - An Independent Exhibition Unit of the "2014 Blueroof Art Festival"
19 September-31 October 2014.
Blueroof Art Community, Chengdu, Sichuan, China.
More Information about "Graft and Transplant"

a.The Surpass Thought Plan 1 --- Graft and Transplant (in short "Graft and Transplant") was initiated online in June 19 ,2014. Surpass Thought Plan is a pan which attempts to apply art to explore how to go beyond the limitations of the human mind,anyone interested in this study and who can propose possible esolution will be welcome to join this plan.'Graft and transplant'is the frist art project of this plan ,it is an nonprofit exhibiting and trading platform to transform thought into a commodity to help achieve its circulation. On this site, people can share their thoughts and ideas with others, even if fleeting and not totally mature and fleeting. The exchange of ideas with strangers from different backgrounds may turn into an infinite amount of unpredictable possibilities.
b. "Graft and Transplant" aims to collect works from artists all over the world in the long run, i.e. the obsolete art programs/thoughts which cannot be implemented as planned by the artists themselves, due to all kinds of reasons. We will deem each kind of miraculous brightness as a god-given gift, to let all thoughts which fail to sprout in a given place to bloom in other places. We wish more people can participate in the global exchange of thought.
c. In terms of "ownership", any program offered for sale will indicate its ownership, and modified programs will include all relevant owners. For each implementation, the profits of a modified program will be equally distributed among owners. In terms of covenant, none will be specially made unless used commercially. Only after payment may a purchaser conduct the thought relay and exhibit the implementation documentation on the platform. Through purchasing "thought", a buyer will not have to worry about displaying a program's implementation. As a result, happiness can spread through the dissemination of ideas. The evolution of thinking can be actualized, based on the premise of humanity optimization. We hope to achieve some success in this regard through the principles of transparency and respect for humanity.
d. All people may have a clash of ideas with the artists and transform themselves from purchaser to seller. Only after a transaction may the purchaser be automatically updated to the potential supplier of thought sources for the "Graft and Transplant" store, and thereby distribute his/her thought programs (the way of selling will be the same with the preceding one).
e. All sales proceeds will be remitted to the program (thought) owner's account on the date of settlement every month. Sale income for overseas artist programs will be settled every six months
f.The "Graft and Transplant Entity Concept Experience Exhibition" will submit an application for cooperation, on an annual basis, with appropriate galleries, museums, and spaces all over the world.
g.The "Graft and Transplant " program is seeking a franchisee for each county around the globe. Franchisees shall not only have certain artist resources, relevant approaches for collecting programs/ideas of artists, and corresponding channels for network sales, but also get a consistent online-store name, collection documentation, and sales concepts via the headquarters. The programs/ideas collected from each country shall be uniformly sent to the headquarters in China for summarization of resources and dispersal to stores across the globe. Those who understand, see promise in, and are willing to contribute to the vision and success of Graft and Transplant are encouraged to join in this capacity.

The outcome of this gathering is shaped in situ by the participants' stories, intellectual contributions, bodily movements, and performative gestures.

Talking life and art while applying eye shadow and spreading PB&J on bread seeks to break away from binaries such as art- life, audience - performer, among others, while offering participants the opportunity to open themselves up to that which does not care to be defined or categorized.

*Because of the food that will be served, this experience is not open to those with allergies to nuts.*

ABOUT THE NOT FESTIVAL

The Not Festival is back in Copenhagen. It is happening from September 8 to 13, 2014. The tittle chosen for this year's Not Festival is "THIRD CLASS CITIZEN and The Pop Up Queer's Shelter", and it will be focusing in the question of queernes: the unusual, the strange, the unpredictable. It will be comprised of 6 days with the evening's events and called "The Pop Up Queer's Shelter" and numbered from 1 to 6. Happening since 2003, this is its 6th episode and the 3rd - and probably the last- in Copenhagen. Working without the support, financial and otherwise from the local Arts Agency, all the activities will be created, developed and presented in collaboration and with the support of The Danish National School of Performing Arts - Continuing Education and Dance Education, BYGN5 at PB43 and Overgaden.

19. William Pope.L, FF Alumn, at Galerie Catherine Bastide, Brussels, Belgium, thru Oct. 18

William Pope.L
Gold People Shit In Their Valet

Opening Saturday 12 September - 6 to 9 pm
13 September - 18 October, 2014

www.catherinebastide.com

William Pope.L
Gold People Shit In Their Valet

Pope L.'s new exhibition at Galerie Catherine Bastide Gold People Shit In Their Valet, titled after one of the new paintings featured in the show, will present five large-scale paintings on canvas and twenty smaller ones on paper closely related to the artist's Skin Set Drawings project (1997-ongoing). The Skin Set projects visual, gestural and aural ambiguity. Skin Set was begun in 1997 with declarative sentences riffing for example on racist affirmations about black people ("Black People Are The Root Of All Evil") and continues today with various other colors assigned to people and absurd, poetic sentences that are intelligible yet not reducible to a simplistic meaning. The paintings are titled after the text inscribed on them, the larger paintings referencing Gold Peopleand the smaller referencing Gray People. In a short video interview for the Whitney Museum[1], Pope L. says the Skin Set project was created "to interact with language at the level of the mixed message, where people say two or three things at the same time." The paintings in Gold People Shit In Their Valet bear slogan-like text that is at times decipherable, and at others obscured by the gestural abstraction of the paint.

Some paintings show words that are clearly decipherable yet unintelligible, such as Gold People Blue Movie. The text is inscribed in pink lettering with light orange and paler pink accents over white paint on the top half and raw canvas on the bottom half, while a blue downward curved line underscores the word "blue" over the white background; a green shapeless brushstroke inside the curve of the "G" accentuates the top half whereas a yellow dot placed where white paint and raw canvas meet on the lower right side balances the composition. The painting's description indicates that the paint hues being used are "flesh pink and white" on canvas, a nomenclature clearly ignoring the billions of people whose flesh is neither pink nor white - especially Gold People.

Elsewhere are puns that work visually but not aurally. For example, the viewer of Gold People Shit In Their Valet, will recognize "valet" is the visual cousin of "wallet," but then realize another painting in the series is Gold People Shit In Their Vale. These visual puns, while present in the title, are not clearly legible within the painting; on the contrary, they belong to paintings where the overall effect is closer to gestural abstraction, as is the case with the two other paintings in the Gold People set. The same variations can be observed in the smaller paintings on paper, with Gray People Peonie or Gray People Smell Like The Universe veering toward almost total abstraction. Pope L. states that his "primary interest is the gestural aspect of language as enunciation, as performance, intention and desire." Here traces of the body's action on language present in the physical act of painting blur the
already ambiguous and absurd message, the humor present in the words often deformed by pictorial gestures.

Additional objects such as Skin Set T-Shirts and Skin Set In A Bottle will be displayed on specifically designed banisters made to interfere with the space and disrupt the visitors' view. The bottle labels of Skin Set In A Bottle reference the colors of the Belgian flag and sport the mottos "Belgium Are Nice" and "Belgium Are Lice," revealing Pope L.'s "mischievous way of conflating commodity, language, nation and abstract expressionism into one container."

Pope L. was born in 1955 in Newark (NJ), he lives and works in Chicago. Self-dubbed "the friendliest black artist in America", Pope L. is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice includes performance, video, sculpture, installation, paintings and drawings. His work has been exhibited or performed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Whitney Museum in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the New Museum in New York, and the Renaissance Society in Chicago. The Renaissance Society and the University of Chicago Press have recently publishedShowing Up To Withhold, a monograph documenting his 2013 exhibition Forlesen at the Renaissance Society.

20. Vernita Nemec, FF Alumn, at Viridian Artists, Manhattan, opening Sept. 11

"Director's Choice: From Virtual To Actual 3"
Curated by Vernita Nemec
September 9-27, 2014
Opening Reception Thursday, September 11, 6-8PM
Robin Becker * Emma Buck * Kristin Enck * Joshua Greenberg * Aimee Hertog *
Marla Hoffman * Daniela Izaguirre * Joanna Kidd * Mark Kolessar * Marcia Lloyd *
Srividya Kannan Ramachandran * Christopher Ruane * Leslie Sheryl

Viridian Artists is pleased to present " Director's Choice: From Virtual To Actual", curated by Vernita Nemec, the gallery director, featuring a selection of artists who entered our 24th International Juried Competition in 2013. The gallery is located at 548 West 28th Street, also accessible from 547 W 27th Street. The exhibit extends from September 9th to 27th, 2014 with an opening reception Thursday, September 11, 6-8PM.

Each of the 13 artists in this diverse exhibition has her or his own personal obsession that serves as the starting point of their search to transform their inner investigations into reality. The results of transforming these realities into art, remains open to each viewer's interpretation and becomes another translation of the virtual into the actual.

The art in this exhibit takes many unique forms from the knitted "Knots" of Joanna Kidd's artist book and the mixed media wall sculpture "Batter Up" of Aimee Hertog to a wide variety of photographic approaches. Joshua Greenberg explores abstraction, Marla Hoffman reflections, Srividya Kannan Ramachandran poetry, Christopher Ruane religion and Marcia Lloyd's ongoing series Mother/Daughter, which explores the search for a new identity.

The dress appears in a variety of meanings & executions: Robin Becker's dress with photo transfers, Leslie Sheryll's gown of plastic bags & netting, Mark Kolessar's "Second Skin" of canvas, acrylic, plastic, wood & metal.

Many of the works are not what they seem to be. Daniela Izaguirre's watercolor and graphite image on vellum looks like real objects, Emma Buck's digital photograph intentionally resembles a painting while Kristin Enck's painting "Slosh" presses the "pause" button, suspending both time and motion to freeze the image as a photo might.

Although these artists were not "winners" of Viridian's 24th International Juried Competition, their art is uniquely interesting. Viridian's Director's Choice Exhibitions arise from one of Viridian's primary missions: to provide meaningful exposure to under-known artists of all ages whose art merits wider attention.

Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday, 12 - 6 p.m.

24. Nam June Paik, FF Alumn, at Asia Society Museum, Manhattan, thru Jan. 4, 2015

Nam June Paik: Becoming Robot
September 5, 2014-January 4, 2015

Asia Society Museum
725 Park Avenue (at 70th Street)
New York City

asiasociety.org

Nam June Paik (1932-2006) was a visionary artist, thinker, and innovator. Considered the "father of video art," his groundbreaking use of video technology blurred past distinctions between science, fine art, and popular culture to create a new visual language. Paik's interest in exploring the human condition through the lens of technology and science has created a far-reaching legacy that may be seen in broad recognition of new media art and the growing numbers of subsequent generations of artists who now use various forms of technology in their work.

The artist was born in 1932, in Seoul. He moved to Germany in 1956 to pursue the study of music, and then to New York City in 1964. Upon his arrival, Paik quickly developed collaborative relationships with a circle of now iconic American artists-John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Yoko Ono, and Bill Viola, among others-and spent the duration of his career, which spanned four decades, in the United States. Through his progressive ideas and artworks, the artist dared to imagine a future where today's technological innovations might exist, and it is this pioneering vision that has continued to shape contemporary visual culture in the United States and internationally.

Nam June Paik: Becoming Robot is the first exhibition dedicated exclusively to the artist to open in New York City in more than a decade. The exhibition presents key works from public and private collections in the United States, Europe, and Asia to show one artist's perspective on modern society's dependence on technology. Paik's wildly creative artistic practice and his innovative working methods provide a backdrop for visitors to contemplate the central role technology will continue to play in art and culture for future generations.

The exhibition is curated by Michelle Yun, Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Asia Society.

Support
Major support for Nam June Paik: Becoming Robot comes from the Terra Foundation for American Art.

Additional support is provided by Korea Foundation, The Julis Family Contemporary Art Initiative, Ken Hakuta, Katherine Farley and Jerry Speyer, and W.L.S. Spencer Foundation.

Support for Asia Society Museum is provided by Asia Society Contemporary Art Council, Asia Society Friends of Asian Arts, Arthur Ross Foundation, Sheryl and Charles R. Kaye Endowment for Contemporary Art Exhibitions, Hazen Polsky Foundation, New York State Council on the Arts, and New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

25. Zachary Fabri, FF Alumn, at Art in General, Manhattan, opening Sept. 13

Zachary Fabri: lorem ipsum

Curated by Kristen Chappa
September 13 - October 25, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 13, 6 - 8pm

Art in General is pleased to present lorem ipsum, a newly commissioned installation by Zachary Fabri for the Storefront Project Space.

Best known for his video work and performances that feature the artist as protagonist, Art in General will present a lesser-known trajectory within Zachary Fabri's practice. Here, he will create a site-responsive installation for the public storefront space featuring a series of large-format graphic prints. This project, titled lorem ipsum, conflates the aesthetics of American Apparel with American Black Nationalist titles predating 1920, when Marcus Garvey popularized Pan-Africanism in the United States and abroad. The installation, manifesting as printed signage, borrows the design and marketing strategy of a trendy urban clothing store chain in order to brand a political ideology and reroute possible perceptions of the exhibition site.
