1. Rosamond S. King, FF Fund recipient 2014, at Dixon Place, Manhattan, September 23

Dixon Place Presents

On Paper: A new performance about trying to work and be an artist
At Dixon Place (161A Chrystie Street b/t Rivington & Delancey, New York City)
Wednesday, 23 September 2015, 7:30pm (one night only!)
www.rosamondking.com dixonplace.org/performances/i-step-on-air/
For tickets: www.dixonplace.org

On Paper questions and critiques the criteria used to determine who is a success. It will resonate with other artists who must work a "day job," and with anyone whose personal calling and paid work don't quite match up. This one-woman performance narrates King's work history, from corporate America to the university, as well as her struggles to create art and stay healthy while working demanding jobs.

Performer Rosamond S. King's own professional, creative, and personal achievements and aspirations are read out loud and positioned on a wall - or the ground - based on the importance given to them by her day job as a college professor. She includes the factual (and sometimes humorous) history of the resume as information that informs what artists and scholars need to have "on paper" to be considered successful.

Mirroring the judgment of success and failure, King's body will "rise" and "fall" during the performance, just as her status does in the art and work worlds. In a costume made of tyvek, with a set covered in crumpled paper, using aerial dance and video projection, King explores the absurdities of the unwritten rules of success in the work world. With this movement, paint, some audience participation, and - of course - paper, the performance transforms a pristine white space into a complicated, crumpled, soiled space - much like the life of an artist with two careers.

On Paper is a rare opportunity to see Rosamond S. King in her homebase. Since her last evening-length staged work in New York (Still Dreaming America, produced by the Bronx Academy of Dance and Music in 2008), King has performed around the world, most recently in the Hemispheric Institute's Encuentro festival in Montreal (2014), the African Performance Art Biennale in Zimbabwe (2013), and the Call and Response: Black Women and Performance festival in Antioch, Ohio (2014).

Rosamond S. King is a creative and critical writer, performer, and artist whose work is deeply informed by the cultures and communities she is part of, by history, and by a sense of play. She recently published the award-winning book Island Bodies: Transgressive Sexualities in the Caribbean Imagination, and her poetry has been published in more than a dozen journals and anthologies. She is Associate Professor at Brooklyn College, part of the City University of New York.

3. Frank Moore, FF Alumn, now online at http://www.eroplay.com

Frank Moore Painting Gallery now online
includes oil and digital paintings

"I began my life in art by playing with oil paints in 1963. Since then, my paintings have been exhibited around the U.S.A. and Canada. Most of my paintings of nudes are of strangers who I approached and asked if I could paint them.

This method led me in the early 70's into performance art, experimental theatre, and shamanism. I started doing private, erotic performances, non-films.

I paint with a brush on a hardhat. Because of this, I can only reach a quarter of the canvas at a time. So Linda kept turning the canvas. That's right! I paint sideways and upside-down!" -- Frank Moore.

5. Lily Tomlin, FF Alumn, in The Wall Street Journal, Aug. 20

The Wall Street Journal
At 75, Lily Tomlin Has Her Moment
Aug. 20, 2015

Lily Tomlin, at the age of 75, is having her most acclaimed professional moment in decades. She stars in Paul Weitz's comic drama "Grandma" (opening Friday). Awards chatter started at the Sundance Film Festival for her role as the acerbic but caring Elle, who has lost her partner of 38 years, Violet, to illness. Elle and her teenaged granddaughter, who needs $630 for an abortion, set off on a daylong road trip to get the money, crossing paths with people important to Grandma's past and present.

Ms. Tomlin also recently received an Emmy nomination for her role as the hippy-ish Frankie in the Netflix series "Grace and Frankie," in which she and Jane Fonda play women whose husbands (Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen) have decided to marry each other. Last year Ms. Tomlin was awarded a Kennedy Center Honor. In 2013 she married her partner of more than 40 years, Jane Wagner, who wrote Ms. Tomlin's one-woman stage show, "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe."

"Grandma" writer and director Paul Weitz joins Lunch Break's Tanya Rivero to talk about his latest film

"Grandma" is a small-scale film, which Mr. Weitz ("About a Boy") wrote with Ms. Tomlin in mind. The clunker of a 1955 Dodge that Elle drives is a car Ms. Tomlin owns, and Elle's wardrobe consists of the star's own denim jacket and sneakers. Those choices were not made for budgetary reasons; they offer clues to the handmade tailoring of the movie.
Ms. Tomlin talked in New York, before returning to Los Angeles to shoot season 2 of "Grace and Frankie." Here is an edited version of the interview.

When Paul Weitz gave you his screenplay for "Grandma," how far along was it?
He brought me a draft. We would meet every four or five weeks, and he'd bring a rewrite on a couple of scenes. Mostly we talked about housekeeping stuff, like why is Elle so broke? Why doesn't she even have $600 to help her granddaughter? We had to get rid of her credit cards, so he came up with the idea of her paying off Violet's medical bills, then cutting up her credit cards and making a wind chime out of them.
Did any part of the character come from your conversations with him? She's very blunt. She's funny. She's kind of angry-she hits her granddaughter's boyfriend with a hockey stick.
Because he said he wrote it for me, people think that he patterned it on me specifically, and I don't know that he did. But I may be much more like her than I realize. He could have easily seen any number of things on the Internet that might have given him a key that I could be volatile. That's possible.
Are you talking about the viral video from the "I Heart Huckabees" set, when you screamed at the director, David O. Russell?
Yeah. Dustin Hoffman was an innocent bystander in my fracas with David. The whole time I was losing it, and really crying and upset, he was saying to me, "Use it, use it in the scene."
Did anything surprise you about the reaction to "Grandma" at Sundance, where it was shown for the first time?
I was surprised that it played so comedically, almost like a farce or something, although it isn't that at all. The parts that are moving or serious they took to heart. The parts that were slightly comedic, they laughed at really big.

"Grandma" is matter-of-fact about your character being gay and the granddaughter's choice to have an abortion. They're the givens of the situation, although in most movies those issues might have been the entire plot. Did that strike you as unusual when you read the screenplay?
No, it didn't. I must have accepted it as just fine. We talked about treating the subject of abortion with a certain gravity, a certain respect, but not agonizing over the subject. The individual makes the choice and she [the granddaughter] came to me with the choice made. And I do alert her-you find out Elle had an abortion and thought about it for the rest of her life, and the granddaughter was going to do the same, it wasn't easy.
The 1980 movie "9 to 5" became one of the major feminist films, a comedy with a social message, in which your character, along with Jane Fonda's and Dolly Parton's, takes vengeance on your sexist boss. Do you see "Grandma" as a message movie?
I do know that it has content. I just call it "content." And if the content reaches the audience, that's good. But it's more about liking to be an actor and wanting to portray real life, because you're presenting characters that usually don't get that much attention.

With "Grace and Frankie," were you and Jane Fonda looking for something to do together?
No, but we both like to work. Jane and I had recently commiserated, before "Grace and Frankie," about how we take supporting roles in a film but it would usually cost us money to do it. We have to pay for travel or we might have to bring our own makeup artists and pay for them.
Then there was a flap about your salaries, when you complained that the male co-stars were getting the same as you and Jane Fonda, the leads.
I was sort of pleased about what we were making, and then I heard the guys were making the same. And I said, "Well, I don't think the guys are playing that much"-of course they turn out to be in almost every episode. Anyway, I said that to an interviewer, never thinking it was going to cause a big flap. And Jane and I have a bit of a backend [share of series profits].
What did you think when you heard that fans were sending a petition to Netflix asking it to raise your salaries?
Well, that's great. That's good feminism.
Did you get more money after all that?
We got a raise this year, but that was already predestined.
You've worked consistently throughout your career, but this seems to be a moment when things are bubbling up for you. Why is that happening now?
Maybe this society is perking up to women of an age, giving a little more leeway. Maybe because all the Boomers are getting older, maybe the men realize that the feminism of their wives has had some influence on them. I don't know. I don't even try to figure out the world anymore. I try to figure out one character at a time.
And you got married.
We weren't going to get married, and then there's a guy on the red carpet who'd just harass me and say "When are you and Jane going to get married?"
You're not saying that a red-carpet guy was responsible for your getting married?
No, but he sort of conditioned us to think about it. We've lived so many years without it, and with no promise of it or hope of it, that it didn't matter to us at that point. Now we kind of liked that we got married.



6. Paul Henry Ramirez, FF Alumn, at Ryan Lee, Manhattan, opening Sept. 10

Dear Friends,

I'm excited to announce my solo debut exhibition at RYAN LEE, New York opens on September 10th. I hope you can join me for the opening at 6-8pm that evening - it would be great to see you there! -Paul Henry

Paul Henry Ramirez
Eccentric Stimuli
September 10 - October 24, 2015
Opening: Thursday, September 10, 6-8PM

RYAN LEE is pleased to present Paul Henry Ramirez's Eccentric Stimuli, an exhibition of paintings and drawings from his most recent body of work. Eccentric Stimuli builds on his signature style of bold forms and introduces a selection of new engaging figures that are bold in form and soft in palette. Works from this series were recently featured in "Beauty Reigns: A Baroque Sensibility in Recent Painting," a traveling museum show organized by the McNay Museum of Art. A new group of smaller works that are a continuation of this series is on view for the first time.

The figures initially appear to be in quiet repose, but under deeper inspection a subtle tension squeezes, presses, and caresses to initiate a transformation. In contrast to previous paintings where bright and bold colors took center stage, these newest creations have a delicate palette with subtle punctuations of bright and fluorescent colors taking on supplementary qualities.
Exclusive to this body of work are Ramirez's bold and fresh biogeomorphic abstractions, a term coined by the artist to describe his combinations of biomorphic and geometric forms that are based in figuration. Elements are pared down in order to highlight the bones of the figure. His use of color reinforces the playful manner of his work and presents a reduction of the body to its most basic shapes. He merges billowing corsets and raveling tendrils with geometric forms evolved from earlier bodies of work. Replete with swollen silhouettes, chromatic paint pours, and delicate lines, his compositions are simultaneously unpredictable and composed, organic and meticulous.
Eccentric Stimuli made its first appearance as a site-specific installation at the McNay Museum of Art and was reconfigured for the Akron Art Museum in Ohio.

7. Vernita Nemec, FF Alumn, at Gallery Gaia, Brooklyn, opening Sept. 3

74 Hudson Avenue, Brooklyn
opening reception & maybe even a performance
Thursday, September 3rd, 6-8pm
gallery hours Saturday & Sunday 1-6pm
Gallery Gaia in Vinegar Hill Brooklyn is pleased to present the new art of Environmental artist Vernita N'Cognita. Vernita Nemec aka Vernita N'Cognita is at it again with her "aesthetic works of ecological ingenuity." Gallery Gaia at 74 Hudson Avenue in Vinegar Hill Brooklyn, adjacent to Dumbo is reachable by taking the "F" Train to York Avenue or the "A" train to Jay St in Brooklyn.
N'Cognita's latest endeavors are collectively entitled "Eco-Plasticism", an art movement originated by the artist that focuses on art created primarily from that ubiquitous discarded material called PLASTIC. The artist has been collecting & recycling for years, and turning her various collections into art. Previously it was the Endless Junkmail Scroll and found object assemblages & collages, but it is with a new determination that she has begun creating a variety of new artworks that are made from PLASTIC. Our environment is at stake.
Invented at the start of the 20th century, plastic has gone through numerous evolutions. It began as an exciting new substance for creating a range of objects from nylons to jewelry to cookware. Then plastic became the magic solution for inexpensive but hardy materials for packaging food and objects needing to be both protected & visually pleasing to buyers.
Sadly though, plastic has become the scourge of planet earth because it is used to cover nearly everything & now has spread to every part of our planet including the most pristine. Not only are there islands of plastic in the oceans but fish, birds & other sea life are consuming it as apparent food or becoming entangled in it and perishing.
The solution? ART with a capital P. PLASTICISM is part of this solution! ECO-PLASTICISM! Malleable art that responds to heat but lasts forever.
The Women Environmental Artists Directory listed 307 women environmental artists, singling out three artists including Nemec...(who) "recently used junk mail to demonstrate the complexity of modern life." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_artists. Critic Ed McCormack said "The Endless Junkmail Scroll with its intricate array of symbolic, diaristic, autobiographical, and spontaneous elements, is a defining, career-crowning achievement for Vernita Nemec. Encapsulating the philosophy of aesthetic ecology that prompted her to found the Art from Detritus movement, along with numerous other career-spanning concerns, in an innovative ongoing conceptual format, it is a major statement which seems slated to extend this artists influence far beyond the underground where it has for too long languished as one of the better kept secrets of the avant garde."
Nemec, who uses the name N'Cognita to honor under-known artists, has presented more than 70 exhibitions and performance artworks in the United States, Hungary, Japan, Ireland, Germany, Mexico and France, including guerrilla performances at the Pompidou Museum in Paris and Documenta 13 in Kassel. Videos of some of her performances can be seen on You tube and more information about her can be found on wikipedia at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vernita_Nemec.
She is a past recipient of the Franklin Furnace Jerome Foundation Grant and was selected for the 2nd time by Movement Research to perform at Judson Dance Theater. Her visual art is in the collections of MOMA, the Savaria Museum in Hungary, Sylvia Sleigh Collection of Feminist Art@Rowan University, Asian American Art Center, Franklin Furnace, Fairfax Hospital in Virginia, Groupa Junij, Belgrade and many private collections.

10. Heather Cassils, FF Alumn, at ANTI Festival, Kuopio, Finland, Sept. 4

Heather Cassils returns to ANTI Festival!

Heather Cassils, who won the first ever ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art in 2014, will return to Kuopio for ANTI - Contemporary Art Festival!
"I have had the privilege of coming to the ANTI Festival twice. First to perform Tiresias in 2012 and in 2014 to receive the Live Art Prize. This year I return with a site specific, physically intensive and demanding new work", says Cassils.
Cassils' new work The Powers That Be (210 Kilometers) will premiere on Friday, September 4th at 10:30 pm. at ANTI Festival 2015.

Kuopio, Finland is located 210 kilometers from the Russian border. Cassils' new site specific performance addresses the proximity of the ANTI Festival to a country where queer and trans lives are acutely vulnerable and under siege, lacking any protection under civil law.

The Powers That Be (210 Kilometers) is staged in a parking structure, with headlights and car radios providing lighting and sound for an intensely choreographed fight between Cassils and an invisible opponent.

This performance smashes the weight of accountability down on everyone present by calling into question the roles of witness, victim and agressor, continuing Cassils' exploration of the radical unrepresentability of certain forms of trauma and violence.

Heather Cassils (CA/US)
Heather Cassils is an artist who uses the physical body as sculptural mass with which to rupture societal norms. Implementing rigorous physical training practices and queering their knowledge of kinesiology and sports science, they formally manipulate the body into shapes that defy expectations.

Drawing on conceptualism, feminism, body art, gay male aesthetics, and Hollywood cinema, Cassils creates a visual language that is at once emotionally striking and conceptually incisive.
Cassils' first European solo exhibition, Incendiary took place in MU, Eindhoven, the Netherlands in May 22 - July 19 2015.

The Powers That Be (210 Kilometers) will be performed only once during the ANTI Festival due to its extreme physical impact on the performer. Must see!
Heather Cassils is available for media in Kuopio between 29th August and 3rd September. For interviews, please contact ANTI Festival Manager, Elisa Itkonen: elisa@antifestival.com, +358 50 305 2005!
Meet with the Artist at ANTI Festival Centre on Wednesday, September 2nd, 11.00 pm. - 12.00 pm.

13. Jacki Apple, FF Alumn, named advisor to Fabrik Expo

JACKI APPLE, FF Alumn, is now on the Advisory Board of this major upcoming event for independent artists and designers in all media-- FABRIK EXPO: THE NEXT WAVE.

FABRIK EXPO: THE NEXT WAVE - Empowering creativity.
FABRIK EXPO offers a unique platform for emerging and established, cross-disciplinary, unrepresented independent artists, designers, and collaborative groups to independently present their work and concepts.
FABRIK EXPO's goal is to expand the art fair experience beyond the traditional gallery exhibition and expose our audience to a wider range of artists, media, and practices that truly represent the cultural, aesthetic, and conceptual diversity of contemporary art and design in the 21st century. We aim to shift our audience's perspective about the nature of contemporary art by introducing them to ground-breaking and often challenging and demanding work, and artists who are crossing contexts and blurring the boundaries between art, design, architecture, environments, and media.
FABRIK EXPO is a forum for the direct exchange of ideas between artists, designers, collectors, arts professionals, cultural organizations, and writers that will offer the participating artists and designers the opportunity for a new level of visibility, exposure, and promotion. Simultaneously, we will provide curators, galleries, collectors, editors, educators, various arts and cultural organizations and funders, as well as arts and design enthusiasts, the opportunity to discover today's most outstanding creative talent, acquire and commission exciting new works directly from the artists and designers, negotiate future exhibits, and interview the artists. The inaugural edition of the Expo will also feature specialized installations and programs including panel discussions, presentations, roundtables, and docent tours.
FABRIK EXPO will display how various artists are using new technologies and systems of distribution, engaging in collaborative group projects, and in social, environmental, and critical practice in both traditional and non-traditional media. Artists working outside of traditional media and contexts may participate by creating presentations that demonstrate and promote their projects and activities to potential supporters. We welcome not only painters, photographers, printmakers, sculptors, assemblage artists, but also installation artists, high concept designers, digital and media artists, book and graphic artists, muralists, performance artists, and those working in a cross-section of materials and contexts such as textiles, ceramics, wearables, public art, experimental architecture, environmental and social projects, small publishers, and various printed art forms.
FABRIK EXPO is now accepting submissions from artists worldwide. To guarantee the highest criteria of excellence, participants will be selected by a diverse jury of knowledgeable arts professionals who will review all submissions. There will be two rounds of reviews by the Selection Panel. The first deadline for applications is September 30, 2015. The second deadline will be November 20, 2015. For more information about FABRIK EXPO, and how to apply please visit www.fabrikexpo.com
FABRIK EXPO will have its premiere in a prime 24,000-square-foot film production warehouse in L.A.s rapidly expanding downtown Arts District, fast becoming the center of Los Angeles cultural activities and venues in a new era of urban mobility.
FABRIK EXPO is produced by LA-based Fabrik Media. We provides artists with professional opportunities to have their work exhibited, published and represented through various platforms including Fabrik Magazine, ArtCapitol.com, Fabrik Expo and Photo Independent.

14. Hector Canonge, FF Alumn, at La Gallerie, La Paz, Bolivia, thru Sept. 11, and more

Hector Canonge
Solo Exhibition, August 13- September 11,2015
La Gallerie, Aliance Française, La Paz - Bolivia

Hector Canonge inaugurated his solo exhibition "CORPOREALIDAD" in La Paz, Bolivia, on Thursday, August 13th, 2015. The multidisciplinary exhibit gathers the artist's work in Performance Art created between 2012 and 2013 in various regions in Argentina, where the artist was born, and in Bolivia, where the artist lived as a child. "CORPOREALIDAD" departs from Canonge's theoretical framework and writings related to his work in Live Action Art where "corpo" (the body) is the instrument of, and platform for artistic creation which transforms a specific reality -realidad- or the experience in a specific site or territory. Writing about his work in Live Art, the artist declares that "Corporal activation and the embodimiment of various situations created by the experience of the performative transform the physical environment as well as the reality where the action takes place." The exhibition was funded by CIT Fundación and MACSCZ.


"AKTIVAGANTE": exploraciones de arte acción & performance
Initiative and Conference, August 2015
CC Patiño, CCF Rodriguez, CCB Barrio Oriental, Santa Cruz de la Sierra - Bolivia

Canonge launches the first convention & conference of Live Action Art focusing on Bolivian artists whose practice involve Performance Art. The program takes place in collaboration with cultural centers and organizations in one of the youngest and dinamic Latin American cities in the southern cone.
