5. Brian O'Doherty, FF Alumn, at Frieze, London, UK, Oct. 14-18

FRIEZE LONDON
BOOTH H15, P! / SIMONE SUBAL GALLERY
OCTOBER 14-18, 2014

Download press release
Inquiries: info@simonesubal.com

At Frieze London 2014, P! and Simone Subal Gallery stage a solo presentation of seminal artist, writer, and critic Brian O'Doherty (a.k.a. Patrick Ireland). Beginning in the 1960s, O'Doherty created a vast body of conceptual and language-based artwork including drawings, paintings, sculptures, performance, and site-specific installations. The booth at Frieze London 2014 focuses on the connections between a set of rare historical works juxtaposed with a new work created specifically for Frieze. Last exhibited together at Betty Parsons Gallery in 1970, four of O'Doherty's "Ogham" sculptures command the booth's interior. These wall-mounted, mirrored sculpture are incised with an ancient linear Celtic script, transforming the viewer's gaze in an experiential and encoded moment of self-representation. An untitled painting from the mid-1970s, rendered in watercolor marker on unprimed canvas, captures the artist's quixotic attempt to follow a strand of his own hair in an exploration of line and process. These works are complemented by a new "rope drawing," the most recent in an ongoing body of work begun in the 1970s, together with a set of works on paper that reveal the structural underpinnings of O'Doherty's oevre and its deeper connections to the written word.

Brian O'Doherty (b. 1928, Ireland) has led a remarkable and multifaceted career. After working and researching as a medical doctor, he relocated to the USA, where he hosted two television shows on art and culture. O'Doherty served as art critic for The New York Times and as editor-in-chief of Art in America magazine. He edited and designed the groundbreaking "conceptual issue" of the multimedia magazine-in-a-box Aspen, as well as authored the seminal essay series Inside the White Cube. While part-time director of the NEA's visual arts and media program, he helped make Soho a magnet for artists, coined the term "alternative space," and championed early video art. From 1972 to 2008, he worked as an artist under the pseudonym Patrick Ireland. He has mounted over forty solo exhibitions, and was the subject of several retrospectives, most recently in 2007 at NYU's Grey Art Gallery. O'Doherty is the author of several novels, including The Deposition of Father McGreevy (2000), which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. His most recent novel, The Crossdresser's Secret, was published by Sternberg Press in February 2014. His 2014 exhibition at P! and Simone Subal Gallery, Connecting the ..., received widespread praise from publications including Artforum, The New York Times, The New Yorker, Art in America, ArtNews, Modern Painters, The Brooklyn Rail, The Daily Beast, and others.

7. Grace Roselli, FF Alumn, at Mar Silver, Westport, CT, Oct.17-Nov. 30

MAR SILVER PRESENTS THE UNCANNY LADY M -
AN EXHIBITION OF PROVOCATIVE ARTWORKS FROM GRACE ROSELLI !
October 17 - November 30, 2014

Modern tastemaker and interior designer Mar Silver opens an exhibition of riveting mixed-media works from New York City artist Grace Roselli. The collection, titled "The Uncanny Lady M," features 13 works by Roselli that explore her interpretation of identity, erotism and gender. The solo exhibition will be on view, by appointment only, at Mar Silver Design Lab in Westport, Connecticut through November 30. ! "Similar to my own design style, I seek provocative artwork that inspires me, and that is what drew me to Grace's work," says Silver. "As art is an integral element of any space I design, I've incorporated her pieces into my past projects, and I'm thrilled to be representing her, and to have her latest collection featured in my Design Lab." ! The Uncanny Lady M series explores the gendered gaze, and what a combination of the male and female gaze look like. The central subject is Shakespeare's Lady Macbeth, a character whose gender inhibits the ferocity of her ambitions to do what must be done. ! Roselli starts with fantasy to give Lady Macbeth her wish, "Come, you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here" to untether her from her perceived weakness as a woman. From there, Roselli reimagines her as a cyborg queen: a post-human machine without the constraints of morality, class, race or gender. She is fierce and seductive, a disquieting beauty of pain and pleasure. ! "For the series, I invited women to imagine themselves as this new post-human Lady M," explains Roselli. "Adorned only in the sculpted wearables of skin-pricking wire mesh, these women react and interact with their specific wearables as I document their improvised performance. Ultimately, the individual performer's sense of identity merges with the physical parameters of the set, becoming our own very human version of Lady M, the cyborg queen." ! Based in New York, Roselli has had solo exhibitions with Anita Friedman Fine Arts Gallery in New York City, and with the Pentimenti gallery in Philadelphia. Her work has also appeared in numerous group shows, with the most recent being the exhibition, "Coup de Chapeau" at the Gemeente Museum in the Netherlands. Roselli received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and was awarded the RISD Scholarship to Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Upon graduating she was awarded a residency with the Empire State Studio program in New York City. ! Located in the heart of Westport, Mar Silver's Design
Lab is a headquarters for her full service design and build firm, and is a constantly evolving luxurious, highend, modern mix of all that is currently catching Mar's fancy, including stunning art by emerging and established artists, rare finds from her travels around the world, and select pieces from her custom Plunk furniture collection and custom rugs and textiles. ! For more information, or to schedule a viewing of "The Uncanny Lady M," contact Mar Silver Design Lab at 203-341-0413. !

Artist book program: Doug Beuebe Sketch/Books
BravinLee programs will present a grouping of sketchbooks by Doug Beube in the book vitrine. Beube began binding his own sketchbooks in 1979. His drawings and collaged pages are an integral part of his fleshing-out visual ideas about his sculptural bookwork, installations, and photography. When a conceived artwork is drawn in the book, the seed of an idea is recorded for future reference. As Beube builds a vocabulary for future executions, the sketchbooks became works in themselves.

Doug Beube works in mixed media including, artist's books/bookworks, collage, digital animation, installation, sculpture, and photography. In 1993 he began curating a private collection of artist's books entitled, The Allan Chasanoff Bookworks Collection: The Book Under Pressure. Beube teaches artist's books, mixed media, and photography and lectures at various universities and art programs around the U.S. Beube has exhibited internationally and his book-works and photography are included in many private and public collections.

Indiana University, Bloomington
Robert Mapplethorpe: Photographs from the Kinsey Institute Collection
October 10-November 22, 2014

Opening: October 10, 6-8pm

Grunwald Gallery of Art
Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts
1201 E 7th Street
Bloomington, IN 47405

T +1 812 855 8490

Robert Mapplethorpe: Photographs from The Kinsey Institute Collection will go on display October 10 through November 22 at Indiana University's Grunwald Gallery. Presented jointly by the Grunwald Gallery and The Kinsey Institute, the exhibition marks the first time this group of photographs has been publicly shown.

Mapplethorpe is considered by art historians to be one of the most significant artists of the 20th century. His striking black-and-white photographs capture a classical beauty that is both formal and raw.

In 2011, The Kinsey Institute received a gift of 30 prints from the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation. These photographs dating from 1976 to 1985 are excellent examples of Mapplethorpe's more challenging work. Some of the gelatin silver prints are nude or clothed portraits, while others contain explicit homosexual and heterosexual imagery from the New York S&M scene.

At the time of the gift, foundation president Michael Stout described the works as some of the artist's "most memorable and most difficult." The Kinsey Institute was chosen to receive this group of photographs because of its scholarly mission and IU's storied record of academic freedom, Stout said.

On October 10, photo critic Philip Gefter will deliver a lecture on "Robert Mapplethorpe, Sam Wagstaff, and the Gay Sensibility." The event will take place at 5pm in Room 102 at the Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts. An opening reception will follow from 6 to 8pm at the Grunwald Gallery.

Gefter writes about photography for The Daily Beast. He previously covered the subject at The New York Times for more than 15 years. Aperture recently published his book of essays, Photography After Frank.

In 2010, Gefter produced the acclaimed feature-length documentary, Bill Cunningham New York. His current project is Wagstaff: Before and After Mapplethorpe - A Biography, which will be published by W.W. Norton & Co. in November.

On October 24, Andrew Moisey will present the gallery talk "Robert Mapplethorpe: Pleasure and Pain" at noon in the Grunwald. Moisey is a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Cultural Analysis at Rutgers University.

Though Mapplethorpe is well known for a variety of subjects, including celebrity portraits and flower studies, his more explicit photographs have sparked a wider public dialogue.

In 1989, a retrospective of Mapplethorpe's work, The Perfect Moment, helped ignite a fierce culture war after Republican Sen. Jesse Helms discovered that the National Endowment for the Arts had awarded the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia 30,000 USD toward the exhibition. A battle ensued over the government's role in funding for the arts.

One year later, the same exhibition provoked local law enforcement in Cincinnati, Ohio, to accuse Cincinnati's Contemporary Arts Center and its director of pandering pornography and promoting obscenity. A famous trial resulted in which the definition of art itself was the essential issue. Art and the exhibition prevailed, as all charges were dismissed.

Robert Mapplethorpe: Photographs from The Kinsey Institute Collection opens 25 years after the artist's death and the opening of The Perfect Moment retrospective. All 30 Mapplethorpe photographs from the Kinsey Collection will be featured, along with materials that address the controversy surrounding the 1989 exhibition and the culture wars of the early 1990s.

The Mapplethorpe exhibition and related events provide an opportunity to examine changes in the social climate that may or may not have occurred over the past several decades. What lasting effects did the culture wars have on the public's perception of art? Did Mapplethorpe make the exploration of this subject matter more or less difficult for other artists? How does one determine what is obscene and what is art?

A companion exhibition, Beyond Mapplethorpe, features images by photographers who either influenced his work or were his contemporaries in the 1970s and 1980s. The show of more than 20 photographs from The Kinsey Institute includes work by Tom Bianchi, George Platt Lynes, Len Prince, Bettina Rheims, Herb Ritts and Arthur Tress. Although these images may not be as overtly sexual as some of Mapplethorpe's photographs, they reveal the same interest in exploring and expanding the artistic possibilities of the human figure.

The Mapplethorpe exhibition and corresponding programs have been made possible by The College Arts and Humanities Institute in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Grunwald Gallery of Art, and the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction, all at Indiana University; the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation in New York; and the Kling Family Foundation of Tustin, California.

For further information, contact the Grunwald Gallery: T +1 812 855 8490 / grunwald@indiana.edu. All events are free and open to the public.

MAY - I led a tour of my Metro Rail station for a group from Ojai led by Vanessa Acosta. I designed public art for the Lincoln Heights/Cypress Park station on the Pasadena Gold Line. One of the components is this waterbearer woman, a Tongva woman who brought water from the Zanje Madre to people's residences. Connsidered to be the city's first waterworks, she is based on an historic photo in the collection of the LA Department of Water and Power. The bronze figure was sculpted by Ruth Ann Anderson.

JUNE - Los Angeles Film Festival was just one of many festivals where my students' films were shown. Depicted is the Righteous Conversations Project team that made Re-Invent Education with RCP executive director Samara Hutman. This past summer we created seven new public service announcements and one animation based on a Holocaust survivor's personal story during our Righteous Conversations Project workshops. Stay tuned for news of their premiere screening.

JULY/AUGUST - The Gaulkberry family traveled to Sarasota to see my mom and then to Oaxaca and Mexico City for an exploration of culture and cuisine. It was all delicious including time spent with our college girls!

SPRING - Lots of film festivals where my students' films have been screened! Newport Beach Film Festival, The Archer Film Festival and the Los Angeles Film Festival. Pictured are Danielle Stolz and Max Cho of the Investigative Journalism Adventure to Laos, Trey Carlisle of The Righteous Conversations Project and Dora Palmer and Danielle Stolz from my Video Art classes at Harvard-Westlake.

Bio: Alan Sondheim (www.alansondheim.org) was born in Wilkes-Barre,
Pennsylvania; he lives with his partner, Azure Carter in Providence,
RI. He holds a B.A. and M.A. from Brown University. A new-media artist,
writer, and theorist, he has exhibited, performed and lectured widely.
His band Ritual All 70, whose debut The Songs (Riverboat, 1967) was
reissued by the Fire Museum label, was included on the notorious Nurse
with Wound list of outsider/avant-garde influences.

Overview (excerpted from the liner notes):

Sondheim is the first artist from ESP-Disk's 1964-75 heyday to return,
since it was revived in 2005, to issue an album of new material on the
fabled label. Sondheim joined the roster with a
1967 session, Ritual-All-7-70, then followed up with 1968's T'Other
Little Tune. Sondheim got his musical start as a guitarist, but soon
moved into a much more original sound utilizing a vast array of
instruments from around the world.
Cutting Board, his eighth album, is his first instrumental group album;
his other albums have always either been solo (and there are two solo
tracks on Cutting Board as well) or featured female vocalists. Though
he's a pure improviser, Sondheim rightly insists that he doesn't play
jazz; even playing with two saxophonists, he's outside that tradition's
spectrum. The eclecticism of the sounds he's working with sonically can
tenuously seem to connect him to world music, but he doesn't play the
instruments in traditional ways. And on rare occasions you can hear the
blues lurking, but it's not likely that Living Blues will be putting
him on the cover. Maybe if somebody starts a music magazine (or
website) called Beyond Category, then Sondheim can be a cover subject.

Press Quotes:

Of Ritual-All-7-70: "...if there is a concept here, its extremely
simple: you never heard such sounds in your life."
Clifford Allen, Bagatellen

Of Avatar Woman: "...be prepared to listen to universes growing and
collapsing within their sound worlds."

Sonya Rapoport
Acquisition: Victoria and Albert Museum

Also. the Phoenix Art Museum, Focus Latin America plus mail art : October 1 - November 23rd

First of all, I am happy to share that my interactive digital "Shoe-Field" artist book has been acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, who have published an interesting article which addresses the work in context - "Cataloguing Change: Women, Art and Technology" by Melanie Lenz, Patric Prince Curator of Digital Art and Digital Programmes Manager, V&A, published in the V&A Online Journal, Issue No. 6 Summer, 2014.

The article can be found here:
http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/journals/research-journal/issue-no.-6-summer-2014/cataloguing-change-women,-art-and-technology

The V&A's image of the work:
http://www.vam.ac.uk/__data/assets/image/0007/244258/figure-7.jpg

Abstract of article
Focusing on key objects in the V&A's digital art collection, this article considers the relationship between women, art and technology. It contextualises early digital practices and documents the significant contribution made by female artists, curators and educators inspired by the creative potential of new technologies.

Text concerning my work:

Sonya Rapoport makes participatory computer-assisted interactive artworks. Rapoport, born in 1923, began her career as an abstract expressionist painter, using drawing, painting, text and cross-cultural imagery. Since the 1970s she has utilised digital tools. Her work, such as Shoe Field (fig. 7) engages with and incorporates audience responses: in this instance as an interactive installation that created computer plots of people's responses to their shoes.
Conceived in 1977, the work was originally about American Indian designs and sandals. Rapoport superimposed drawings on the computer that related to anthropological research encoded in computer printouts; she then repeated the process with her own collection of shoes, before developing the work into an interactive happening. In 1978, Rapoport worked with anthropologist Dorothy Washburn and produced A Shoe-In (1982), a participation performance, held at Berkeley Computer Systems. In 1986 Shoe Field was exhibited at Media Gallery in San Francisco where the data from A Shoe-In was programmed for further inter-activity.

Phoenix Art Museum:
Additionally, a miniature of my artist's book "The Animated Soul - Gateway to you Ka" has been included in an exhibition "Focus Latin America:
Art Is Our Last Hope" curated by Vanessa Davidson and John Held Jr. at the Phoenix Art Museum.

27. Michel Auder, FF Alumn, at Fahrenheit, Los Angeles, CA, thru Oct. 10

Michel Auder / Józef Robakowski: Street Life
October 11-December 18, 2014

Fahrenheit
2245 E. Washington Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90021

www.fahrenheit.flaxfoundation.org

Michel Auder / Józef Robakowski: Street Life brings together a selection of films and videos by two avant-garde filmmakers, Michel Auder (b. 1944 in Soissons, France, lives and works in Brooklyn) and Józef Robakowski (b. 1939 in Poznań, lives and works in Łódź, Poland). Los Angeles is a city often defined by its absence of public space and street life. This exhibition reflects on the tensions between the public and the private realms, as well as the individual and the societal through depictions of everyday life. Auder and Robakowski, two pioneers of video art, share a diaristic approach to video making, placing their cameras as tools for meditation between themselves and the world, stationed in the windows of their houses and studios. They act as vigilant observers who document the streets of their respective cities, New York City and Łódź, in the 1970s and 1980s. Explicitly referencing, if not satirizing, the voyeuristic style of some film noir movies, such as Hitchcock's Rear Window, the videos in this exhibition convey notions of intimacy, storytelling, and comment on the slings and arrows of the tragic everyday.

Michel Auder grew up in France, where he took part in the radical independent filmmaker group Zanzibar, before moving to New York in 1969, where he became involved with Andy Warhol's Factory and lived at the Chelsea Hotel for several years. He is a video raconteur who has fervently recorded his life, experiences, and observations on film for over 30 years, and whose work elicits a sense of intimacy paired with the conscious pleasure of looking. Untitled (I Was Looking Back To See If You Were Looking Back At Me To See Me Looking Back At You) (2014) is the edited version of Auder's filmic diary and archive of visual information, filming the apartment building on the opposite side of the street by night, portraying its inhabitants and
events. Filmed from the window of his studio in Brooklyn and in the streets of Chelsea where he then lived, Blind Sex (1983) and Chelsea - Manhattan, NYC (1990) retrace Auder's everyday living environment and the particular atmosphere of New York in the 1980s.

Józef Robakowski is a Polish artist and filmmaker associated with the avant-garde film movement of the 1960s and 1970s. He co-founded several artistic collectives in Poland and was a student and later a professor at the film school in Łódź. His use of diverse media, photography, video, film, expanded cinema, installation, text and performance focuses on material experimentation and autonomy from artistic forms and tendencies. In 1978, he began filming a square opposite his building from his kitchen window in Łódź, documenting the various social and political changes that took place there along with the very simple life he could witness. From My Window (1978-99) is a reflection on the individual's relationship to society, contributing to a better understanding of the political realm of its time. The presence of a narrator, a characteristic of Robakowski's cinema that he has defined as "personal cinema," reveals a sense of ironic distance, if not resistance, wry humor and absurdity as the artist comments on the banalities of everyday life in Communist Poland.

Fahrenheit is a non-profit initiative dedicated to research and creation in the field of contemporary art. Conceived by the Flax Foundation and developed by director and curator Martha Kirszenbaum, it is an interrelated residency program and a space dedicated to exhibitions, performances, film programs and talks. It supports the exchange and integration of France-related artists, curators and critics with a particular emphasis on outreach programs in communities within greater Los Angeles.

Ruth Hardinger
My Conundrums and Envoys speak to totemic powers that are captured in secular formats and constructed with the reality of weight. These concrete and cardboard constructs were recently installed as a sequence of steps or phases of passages - storied journeys with many participants. There's a further back-story of adjectives that puns with their material names: "concrete" is a solid fact, and "cardboard" is a material without substance. As an artist working hands-on with these most common industrial materials, I am inspired by their contradictory forces. Cardboard, the most successfully recycled matter is paired with concrete, one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gases. Working inside and outside of abstraction, my work's visual presence is of utmost importance, yet, simultaneously, it reaches to associations that are both obvious and/or obscure.
Hardinger's works on paper, Pathways, are an expressive harkening to geological forms, their construction and modification. These works imagine a complex expression of life's vitality underground; an area that when interrupted could open pathways or channels that instigate harmful migrations.

Ruth Hardinger earned a BA in Classical Studies, with a minor in Ancient Greek from Hunter College, NYC. Her work has been exhibited recently at Brian Morris Gallery, Cooper Union, Creon, Sideshow, Masters and Pelavin, Lesley Heller Gallery, Van Deb, Kentler Fine Art, Islip Museum and Carriage House, and Exit Art.
