Hector Canonge is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York City. His work incorporates the use of New-media technologies, physical environments, cinematic and performance art narratives to explore and treat issues related to construction of identity, gender roles, and the politics of migration. Challenging the white box settings of a gallery or a museum, or intervening directly in public spaces his performances mediate movement, endurance, and ritualistic processes. Some of his actions and carefully choreographed performances involve collaborating with other artists and interacting with audiences. His visual arts projects and performance art work have been exhibited and presented in the United States, Latin America, Europe and Asia.
Since July 2014 Canonge has been in South America producing and exhibiting a new body of work in museums, galleries and performance spaces in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Brazil where he participated in the 31st Biennial of Sao Paulo. Canonge will continue with his work in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru completing his journey by the end of this year and return to the USA in early 2015. As cultural promoter, Canonge launched ARTerial Performance Lab, an initiative to foster collaboration among performance artists from the Americas, started the project PERFORMEANDO, a program that focuses on featuring Hispanic performance artists living in the USA, and created the series NEXUSURNEXUS presented by the Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival, BIPAF. As curator, Canonge organizes the monthly artists' program A-LAB Forum, directs the monthly independent film series CINEMAROSA, and created the annual Performance Art Festival, ITINERANT. His work has been reviewed by The New York Times, ART FORUM, New York Daily News, Manhattan Times, Hispanic Magazine; by major networks ABC, NBC, CNN, CBS, UNIVISION, etc., and online by Art Experience NYC, NYRemezcla, Turbulence, ART CARDS Review and NYFA News.

6. Dan Perjovschi, FF Alumn, at Kunsthall Trondheim, Norway, opening Oct. 18

Dan Perjovschi
Freedom of Expression
October 18-December 14, 2014

Kunsthall Trondheim
Dronningens gate 28
7011 Trondheim
Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 11am-4pm


Kunsthall Trondheim continues the fall season with the first Norwegian presentation of Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi. Perjovschi has been a main figure on the international art scene since 1999, when he represented Romania at the Venice Biennale. Renowned for his political and humorous drawings, he has exhibited at a number of important institutions and galleries, but his work remains uncollectible-as he puts it himself-and persistent in the aim to pinpoint the ruptures and complicated relations within today's society, be it the small everyday negotiations, the structures within the art field or the more profound economical and political conditions.

The exhibition at Kunsthall Trondheim lends its title from the drawing Freedom of Expression, which has reappeared with variations in several of Perjovschi´s wall drawing installations during the last ten years. Among the many reflections on the contemporary state of things and comments on social and political issues currently under debate, this topic remains increasingly urgent to highlight. A cornerstone for democracy, protected in our constitutions and the declarations of Human Rights, it is nevertheless constantly threatened, also by those who misuse it to advocate hatred and xenophobia. The reading of the words "From here-To here" is today not a given, but under debate, and for opposed reasons.

Being active as an artist during the severe censorship of the Ceaușescu regim, the right to express oneself freely has always been at the core of Dan Perjovschi´s activities. As he says in an interview in 2012: "Before 1989, it was basic survival. After '89, it has been about managing and maintaining freedom of expression." With a background in journalism, as a member of the editorial staff and political illustrator at the radical magazine 22, his practise has always expanded into a sphere outside of the personal. Together with Lia Perjovschi, he founded the Contemporary Art Archive (CAA) in 1990, an extensive collection of information and material, and an important arena for events and international exchange.

The exhibition title can also be read as a comment on Perjovschi's artistic method. His drawings are done on site; they require the artist´s physical presence, his conversations with people in the different locations, his reflections and his hand. Besides that, he needs pens. There is a certain freedom in this, the choice of a method that is not heavily depending on technical equipment, advanced installations or ultimately-a director's permission. Dan Perjovschi has chosen to make use of the art institution and its role as public space. But his artistic method allows him to act in whatever context he choses. Or to quote the artist himself: "My drawings are temporary therefore free."

Dan Perjovschi was born in 1961. He lives and works in Bucharest and Sibiu, Romania. He has exhibited extensively: at MoMA New York, Kunsthalle Basel, Tate Modern London, Portikus Frankfurt and many other institutions. He has also participated in a number of major international presentations such as the biennales in Venice, Sao Paolo, Paris, Istanbul and Moscow.

7. Frank Moore, FF Alumn, at International Festival of Performance Art, Toronto, 2014


From the catalogue for
7A*11D International Festival of Performance Art Toronto 2014

In Memoriam
Frank Moore
June 25, 1946 - October 14, 2013

Frank Moore was way ahead of his time - which is to say that he made his own time and made time his own.

Frank was born with a form of cerebral palsy that left him unable to walk or even speak. Luckily, magically, he was a fearless adventurer who managed to achieve what most radical and uncompromising artists only dream of: respect, notoriety, a loving tribe of family, colleagues and friends, and a profound and enduring body of work that encompasses performance, video, web media and writing. For Frank, luck and magic were qualities that could be nurtured: luck, by learning to bypass or reshape personal expectations that corresponded to limitations; magic, by delving into the power of human intimacy to transform reality.

Spending time with Frank felt a bit like taking a psychedelic drug: heightened intensity, an altered sense of awareness and bodily sensation, and a tendency for everyday tasks to take an eternity while being absurdly engaging. Eating together - which meant having to feed Frank, since he couldn't hold a utensil - could take hours, and was a messy, boisterous affair that sometimes shocked onlookers (especially restaurant owners and
patrons) but was a sensual, libidinal celebration for those doing it.

Talking with Frank meant speaking his words for him as he spelled things out using a head pointer to identify letters on a tablet that was a bit like a Ouija board. It took time and a lot of attention and filling in the blanks and careful verification to communicate this way, but all of that effort contributed to a sense of the significance of what was being said. Sometimes being with Frank meant dropping words altogether, diving into a universe of touch punctuated by Frank's raucous cooing and frequent muscle spasms, and guided by a trust in the warmth, intelligence and mischievousness that seemed to pour out from his pores.

Frank actively promoted an image of himself as a wounded healer, a shaman who used performance art as a way to create a sense of intimacy and community and connectedness. He revelled in facing taboos and exploring the power of erotic play. Yet colourful and exuberant as he could be, Frank was also never afraid of boring his audiences, because he understood boredom as being a doorway to a different state of consciousness. Things always got way more interesting once the impatient ones left.

If Frank was a pioneer of intimate, body-to-body performance, he was also a champion of the way new technologies can amplify individual expression and creativity. He was an early and prolific DIY publisher. Rather than focusing on a limiting image of his spastic body as isolating, he realized his body as a node of myriad connections and endless extension. So much so that even though Frank is dead, one might just as soon say that there is something prescient in his words still posted on the Shaman's Cave page of his
website: "I am always here!" He is here, in the bodies he touched and invited to touch him, in the circle of caregivers who carry on his work, and in the vast archive of materials that his collaborators continue to upload to his website and Vimeo channel.

www.eroplay.com | vimeo.com/frankmoore

Based in Berkeley, California, Frank Moore's remarkable output of work included countless intimate ritualistic works for individuals and groups, an ever-changing popular cabaret show called The Outrageous Beauty Revue that ran for three years in the Bay area (San Francisco), numerous videos, publication projects (including a regular 'zine called The Cherotic [r]Evolutionary, personal manifestos such as Art of a Shaman, and his extensive website The Web of All Possibilities), even a web radio station
(LUVeR) and a Vimeo channel. Along the way he attracted a community of creative collaborators, including his wife Linda Mac, colleague and former student Michael LaBash, as well as Corey Nicholl, Alexi Malenky and Erika Shaver-Nelson, who were with him when he died. Frank Moore appeared in the first 7a*11d festival (1997) as part of a series called Five Holes:

Touched,curated under the auspices of FADO. Frank's promotional text for The Cave of the Metasensual Beast, his performance with Michael LaBash and Linda Mac, asked audience members, "Will you let yourself be guided into the cave of passion, imagination, healing human exploring touch, and the unlimited erotic possibilities of blindness? The Beast is waiting for you!"

Staged in the basement of Symptom Hall as one of eight simultaneous performance installations, the piece took place in a fabric cave where, unbeknownst to the audience, Frank lay naked on a mattress. Participants were required to drink a small cup of "somala" (ordinary tap water infused with thousands of years of mythological imaginary around the ability of magical elixirs to invoke altered states, provide protection, and bestow magical powers) and then allow themselves to be blindfolded before entering the cave. Only a few audience members were permitted in the cave at any one time. What happened inside the cave was determined by - and remains the secret of - the individual participants. This was Frank's second trip to Toronto; the first was in 1995, when Pleasure Dome presented his work The Passion Cave at CineCycle. Frank returned to Toronto once more in 1999 as part of FADO'S TIME TIME TIME series, orchestrating Dying is Sexy, a 48-hour erotic, musical, ritualistic, intimate, personal experience that featured a cast of friends, artists, musicians and co-conspirators from Toronto and the United States.



8. Doug Beube, FF Alumn, at 69 Fort Greene Place, Brooklyn, Nov. 8-9


Doug Beube's upcoming open studio series Emendation is a comprehensive survey of his bookwork, collage, and mixed media installation. Emandation is a display of the artist's ongoing and often times polemical dialogue with western culture's relationship to information, the written word and the natural world. The exhibition spans Beube's lengthy career covering tremendous thematic ground, including references from Greek Antiquity through contemporary historical methods. Beube's artistic pursuits channel a very delicate balance both personal and global. Intellectually playing with his varied subjects it is his chosen material, the book, that unpacks the contour of his work overall, where even our most sacred and historical achievements are not immune to change and, perhaps, risks extinction.

Marking the first day of the series is Melt, an environmentally sensitive two day installation involving a politically dynamic sextet of books selected and amended according to their content. Each book incised with text, such as the words JUST/ICE paired with Tom Maloney's U.S. Camera '62, ICE/CAP with The National Geographic Society's As We Live We Breath, and corresponding to Alfred Knoff's Arsenals of Foley are inscribed the words RED/ACT. The frozen books are housed in a steel frame alongside an audio component registered to make live a global and personal transformation and meltdown. The ice run-off is then bottled and branded sm/ART Water. This new installation animates Beube's dialogue of socio-political conditions, cultures of violence both physical and psychological, and those structures existing to support the inverse of the latter. Taking place at Beube's Brooklyn brownstone studio, Melt's conditional properties leverage the anachronistic technology of the book into the environment directly.

NYPAC, the New York Performance Artists Collective, is thrilled to announce our first benefit gala, honoring the legendary writer, singer, painter, and performance artist Mx Justin Vivian Bond, to be held on Wednesday, October 22nd at downtown institution The Cock. This is an especially fitting venue for Mx Bond, who performed at The Cock's original 12th Street location every Saturday, and was the first performer to christen its current - and soon to be former - incarnation. This benefit will be an opportunity to celebrate both Mx Bond and the history of the East Village and Lower East Side, which have been so actively intertwined.

Nominated for a Tony Award for Kiki and Herb Alive On Broadway in 2007, and the recipient of both an Obie and Bessie, Mx Bond has been an influential figure for a new generation of LGBTQ performance artists, many of whom we've supported over the past two years. We're thrilled to honor Mx Bond, who has done so much for queer visibility, dedicating significant time and resources to maintaining diversity in the downtown performance art scene. Join us from 7-10 pm with cocktails and performances by artists Joseph Keckler and Erin Markey. Following the gala, stick around for the after-party, with music by Juliana Huxtable and DJ Lina, and site-specific projections and performance by Casey Legler. Tickets for the gala are $150, tickets for the after-party are $50. All proceeds will support our community of artists and NYPAC's future programming initiatives.

Other performances: South by Southwest, New Museum, Merkin Hall, BAM Fischer, and many other venues. Keckler was recently featured on WNYC Soundcheck and BBC America. He has received residencies from Yaddo and MacDowell, as well as a Franklin Furnace Grant and a Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Work from New York Foundation for the Arts. Current projects include a collection of essays and a new album. The Village Voice recently named him "Best Downtown Performance Artist, 2013."

Erin Markey creates comedic performances and original music for stage and video. Major works include Puppy Love: A Stripper's Tail (P.S. 122), The Dardy Family Home Movies by Stephen Sondheim by Erin Markey (San Francisco Film Society), Looking for Limbo (Lincoln Center Director's Lab) and currently, the recurring Erin Markey at Joe's Pub with Kenny Mellman (Public Theater).

Legler's work has appeared in the Guardian, Vogue, V magazine, Time and CNN. She is currently working on a memoir recounting her girlhood and years as an Olympic athlete. In 2013 Legler received much attention for inserting herself into the system of fashion marketing by being the first woman to be represented and employed with Ford exclusively as a male model. In her first solo exhibition at OSMOS Address in New York, running through November 7, 2014, Legler unveils different narrative works of still photography, video, sound and performance wherein each work involves in some way the artist as impersonator and viewer, and the clichéd signatures of social identity that get embroiled in a personification. Undoubtedly deeply personal, Legler's work is also political.

11. Ann-Marie LeQuesne, FF ALumn, at Royal College of Art, London, UK, Nov. 5,and more


Ann-Marie LeQuesne invites you to join


The Henry Moore Galleries - Royal College of Art

Kensington Gore, London SW7 2EU

Wednesday, November 5th - 7.00 pm
Please come to the Jay Mews entrance of the College where

you will be directed to the Galleries.

DID YOU HAVE BREAKFAST THIS MORNING? will be a photographic survey of the group. I am going to print out the survey questions as long banners and pin them high on the gallery walls. I will ask participants to become graphic devices, posing answers to the questions. I am thinking about the different ways that we "read" a person and read a word/number and I would like to explore this as the event unfolds. You may find that you share some surprising statistics. We will also test the birthday problem which says that there is a 50% chance that two people will share a birthday if the group has at least 23 people!

I hope you will be able to attend!

Best wishes



The new edit of TO: is now on Vimeo. This performance took place on the steps of the New York City Post Office on May 3rd. Participants were asked to re-enact actions observed on the steps of this famous building. It was shown at AC Institute in New York in July.
