3. Carolee Schneemann, FF Alumn, at Museum der Moderne, Salzburg, Austria, opening November 21

Carolee Schneemann Kinetic Painting
Museum der Moderne, Salzburg, Austria
Mönchsberg
November 21, 2015 - February 28, 2016

Around 350 works spanning six decades on 18,300 square feet of exhibition space spread across two floors: the highlight of the Museum der Moderne Salzburg's exhibition programming this fall is a grand retrospective dedicated to the oeuvre of the influential artist, choreographer, performer, and writer Carolee Schneemann (lives and works in New Paltz, NY). The exhibit illuminates a genealogy of new forms of art that emerge as painting set in motion and eventually evolves into expansive installations in multiple media.
The retrospective focuses on both canonic pieces and performances, and previously unpublished and rarely-seen works that feature lesser-known aspects of Schneemann's prolific output. Based on a thorough scholarly review, it presents her oeuvre in unprecedented breadth and depth, embedding it in the context of painting and encouraging a wider audience to explore her art.

A catalogue accompanying the exhibition, edited by Sabine Breitwieser for the Museum der Moderne Salzburg, will by published by Prestel. It will include essays by Sabine Breitwieser, Branden W. Joseph, Mignon Nicxon, Ara Osterweil, and Judith Rodenbeck, as well as writings by Carolee Schneemann.

Curators: Sabine Breitwieser, Director, Museum der Moderne Salzburg; Branden W. Joseph, Frank Gallipolli Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art, Columbia University, New York; with Tina Teufel, Museum der Moderne Salzburg; Exhibition architecture: Kuehn Malvezzi

Opening Ceremony 11/21/2015
Discussion with Carolee Schneemann and Sabine Breitwieser.
Conference featuring Branden Joseph, Judith Rodenbeck, Mignon Nixon, and Hubert Klocker.

4. Jack Waters and Peter Cramer, FF Alumns, at MoMA, Manhattan, Oct. 19-27

Jack Waters and Peter Cramer @ MOMA October 19-27 in a new film "Jason and Shirley" by Stephen Winter.

http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/films/1619

MoMA Presents: Stephen Winter's Jason and Shirley
October 19-27, 2015

A fictionalized retelling of Oscar-winner Shirley Clarke's 1967 film Portrait of Jason, Stephen Winter's Jason and Shirley filets the meaty racial, social, and sexual issues raised by the original documentary encounter. Artist and filmmaker Jack Waters doesn't so much play as channel Jason Holliday, the aging hustler, wannabe/has-been cabaret artist and lascivious lush that so fascinates and infuriates Clarke (incarnated here by renowned writer Sarah Schulman). A film within a film, shot on vintage-looking pixelated video and intimate to the point of invasiveness, Jason and Shirley ingeniously inverts the gaze of the original: now it's a black, Jewish gay man probing and prodding the white, Jewish woman of privilege and power with his lens. The only constant in both films is the vicious strength and ultimate triumph of Jason, a screen icon if ever there was one.

5. Bradley Eros, FF Alumn, at Issue Project Room, Manhattan, Oct. 20

For the second installment of her ISSUE residency, Lea Bertucci presents two duo sets of with collaborators Bradley Eros and Anthony Saunders.

Lea Bertucci
with Bradley Eros & Anthony Saunders
Tuesday, October 20 - 8pm - 7:30 doors
55 Walker St., NYC 10013
(Free, $10 suggested)
For the second installment of her ISSUE Project Room residency, Lea Bertucci presents two duo sets of new music with collaborators Bradley Eros (film projections) and Anthony Saunders (modular synth, amplified metal). The evening features Bertucci exploring the sonic qualities of a decrepit alto saxophone that sat in the basement of Bradley Eros' home for 25 years. She is joined by Eros, who creates a live collage of 35mm slide and 16mm film projections. A second duo features Anthony Saunders, of seminal harsh noise group Bastard Noise, with Bertucci on bass clarinet. This performance celebrates the release of the duo's first cassette on Saunders' RSM record label.

Lea Bertucci is a sound artist and composer whose work bridges performance, installation and multichannel activations of acoustic space. As an instrumentalist, she focuses on an electro-acoustic preparation of the Bass Clarinet that heavily utilizes speaker feedback. In recent years, her projects have expanded to site-specific improvisation, compositions for electronics and instruments, multichannel sound installations and music concrete collage. Bertucci has been an Artist-in-Residence at The Wave Farm, Smack Mellon, LMCC, and The Queens Museum of Art. She was awarded Young Composers commissions from Roulette in 2008 and 2012. Her debut solo LP, Resonance Shapes was released in 2013 on the Obsolete Units label. Collaborators include Leila Bordreuil, G. Lucas Crane, Bhob Rainey, and Eli Keszler. She has performed solo and collaborative works at venues such as The Kitchen, Anthology Film Archives, Caramoor, Artists' Television Access (SF), Incubator Arts, Experimental Intermedia, The Wave Farm, Roulette, The Queens Museum of Art and the High Zero Festival among many others. She is a 2015 Artist-in-Residence at ISSUE Project Room.

Bradley Eros is an artist working in myriad media: experimental film and video, collage, photography, performance, sound, text, contracted and expanded cinema and installation. His work has been exhibited widely at institutions including the Whitney Museum, MoMA, PS1, the New York, London and Rotterdam Film Festivals, Performa09, Exit Art, The Kitchen, Light Industry, ISSUE Project Room, the Warhol Museum, and many others. Eros has collaborated with the Alchemical Theater, the band Circle X, Voom HD Lab, expanded cinema groups kinoSonik and Arcane Project, and currently Optipus (film group). For many years he has worked with the New York Filmmakers' Cooperative, Anthology Film Archives, and co-directed the Roberta Beck Mercurial Cinema.

Anthony Saunders has been making abstract electronic music since 1995 under his own name, and with his projects Dataclast and E.I.D. Since 2014 he has played with Bastard Noise. In the past decade his performances have involved self-built max/msp patches, amplified junk metal, and modular synthesis. He is interested in structured improvisation, texture, tension, and dynamics, drawing on traditions of cut-up in harsh noise and electro-acoustic music. Saunders' releases can be found on Factotum, Troniks, Hospital Productions, RSM, and other independent labels. His collaborators include Eric Wood, James Mercer, Ahlzagailzehguh, Developer, and Lea Bertucci, with whom he toured as a duo in 2013.

Established in 2006, ISSUE Project Room's annual Artist-in-Residence program provides 6 emerging artists each with a year-long residency, offering access to rehearsal space and facilities, equipment, documentation, pr/marketing, curatorial and technical expertise to create new works, reach the next stage in their artistic development, and gain exposure to a broad public audience.

Stephanie Brody-Lederman at Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton
October 24 - Jan 3, 2016
"Dancing With Truffault" and at Sara Nightingale Gallery, Watermill, NY "Out Gallivanting," opening November14th

Stephanie Brody-Lederman's paintings and mixed media works combine her observations and memories of visual occurrences with text gleaned from conversation, poetry and other sources. Brody-Lederman's personal narratives are imbued with emotionally charged undertones that generate "impressionistic portraits of uncertain psychic atmospheres"*. It is this ambient concern for the mysteries of human nature and affairs of the heart that lends a universal context to the work.

Stephanie Brody-Lederman has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards and has exhibited nationally and internationally, including OK Harris, Musee Bourdelle in Paris, The Museum of Modern Art, NY and The Cooper Hewitt. Her work is held in public collections such as Tate London, The Brooklyn Museum and MoMa, NY.

There will be an opening reception at Guild Hall in East Hampton for her solo exhibition,

Dancing with Truffaut, on Saturday, October 24th, 4 - 6 p.m. The exhibition will run through Jan. 3rd.

On Saturday, Nov. 14th Brody-Lederman will give a talk about her work at Guild Hall, East Hampton at 11:30 a.m.

John Kelly Performance Fall 2015 Newsletter

Exhibition / Secrets of the Great Pyramid: The Pyramid Cocktail Lounge as Cultural Laboratory (http://static1.squarespace.com/static/550de726e4b07d4393ab2e37/t/561d13c6e4b051ac164db3b4/1444746182777/Pyramid_Page.pdf)

Oct. 17 - Nov. 7, 2015 Howl! Happening 6 East 1st Street, NYC

In December of 1981 I performed at the opening night of The Pyramid Cocktail Lounge on Avenue A in the then very different East Village. So I'm especially pleased to be included in this group show curated by Brian Butterick (aka Hattie Hathaway) and to be performing a song at the opening night Café Iguana Tribute. The exhibition pays tribute to the famed 80s nightclub that became the epicenter of the nascent EV/LES artistic community and eventually sparked a cultural revolution in music, dance, theater, video, fine arts, performance art, activism, feminism and LBGT politics.

The show includes works by Antony/Blacklips, Billy Beyond, Jayne County, Peter Cramer, Flloyd, Greer Lankton, Tanya Ransom, Tweed Theaterworks, Jack Waters, FF Alumn, David Wojnarowicz and many others. Be sure to check out the project's series of live events as well.

Recent Summer Performances / Love of a Poet at River to River Festival June, 2015

Our reconstruction of Love of a Poet (http://lmcc.net/event/love-of-a-poet/) , marking the 25th anniversary of the work, was presented by LMCC's River to River Festival on Governors Island in June. It was challenging and exhilarating to re-inhabit a pivotal work from early in my career, to once again sing Robert Schumann's Dichterliebe song cycle, and collaborate with visual artist Jarrod Beck (http://jarrodcharlesbeck.com/Jarrod%20Beck%202.html) who completely re-envisioned the work as a major installation in the sprawling basement space of the Arts Center. The show was a great success and played to sold out houses. A huge Danke to all our brilliant collaborators, LMCC and our audiences!

Summer Residency / MacDowell Colony Summer 2015
I spent part of the summer in residency at the MacDowell Colony (http://www.macdowellcolony.org/about.html) where I made great progress on my graphic novel A Friend Gave Me A Book, and it was the perfect extension to the work I'd achieved at the Yaddo Art Colony (http://www.yaddo.org/) last January. It's based on the monologue and song lyrics from my 2011 work The Escape Artist (http://johnkellyperformance.org/wp2/performances/the-escape-artist/), and includes scores of images taken from the video component of that performance work. I am so excited about this project and its possibilities--as book, print edition, and exhibition.

Several panels from A Friend Gave Me A Book were recently included in an exhibition at the Painting Department Gallery at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Upcoming Workshop & Informal Showings /
February 2016 Abrons Arts Center, NYC

In February we will be developing my latest project, Time No Line (http://johnkellyperformance.org/wp2/projects-2/time-no-line/) , in a workshop at Abrons Arts Center (http://www.abronsartscenter.org/?referrer=https://www.google.com/) . This initial workshop will include informal public showings (dates to be announced early 2016).

Time No Line is being conceived as a series of performance and media works based on 40 years of my handwritten journals. I also plan for it to be an actual book, it is a memoir after all! My life and career have overlapped some significant cultural, social, political and historic benchmarks, and I'm thrilled to dive into my personal history and find ways of describing how it intersected with the larger picture of our shared history.

Thank you, as always, for your continued interest in our work.
~ John

11. Babs Reingold, Barbara Kruger, Elizabeth Murray, and Pat Steir, FF Alumns, at Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, FL, thru Jan. 24, 2016

Dear Friends,
I'm pleased to participate in:

"Marks Made: Prints by American Women Artists from the 1960s to the Present"
October 17, 2015 to January 24, 2016

The Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg Florida purchased the monotype "Tree With Nine Moons No 1" (See below) in 2013 with funds donated by Martha and Jim Sweeney. This is an excellent exhibition and should not be missed if you are in St. Petersburg. I'm also quite pleased to have my print exhibited next to a beautiful Kiki Smith and near a work by Lesley Dill.

This exhibition celebrates the pivotal role that women have played in contemporary American printmaking. In addition to pioneering artists like Helen Frankenthaler, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Anni Albers who often worked in the print medium, women also founded some of the most important print studios in the United States. The printmaking process is an intensely collaborative one, between artist and printer. It is also a highly physical process, requiring strength, stamina, and technical prowess-Marks Made tells the story of what happens in the studio and the resulting artworks.
Conveying the breadth of innovation of both technique and conceptual approaches that have emerged in printmaking over the past 50 years, Marks Made makes no generalizations about women's approach to artmaking. Themes of abstraction, realism, craft, appropriation strategies, activism, and the translation of one's primary medium to printmaking will all be explored in this expansive exhibition featuring over 75 works.
The Museum has built an extensive collection of prints by American women including works by Vija Celmins, Janet Fish, Helen Frankenthaler, Ellen Gallagher, Yvonne Jacquette, Joyce Kozloff, Lee Krasner, Barbara Kruger, Hung Liu, Joan Mitchell, Elizabeth Murray, Judy Pfaff, Susan Rothenberg, and Pat Steir. Museum supporters Martha and Jim Sweeny have been dedicated to increasing awareness of the role of women in contemporary printmaking, and have made invaluable contributions to this collection, which is augmented by select loans for the exhibition.
Best,
Babs

'Agnosia, an Illuminated Ontology' an Installation by Joseph Kosuth
November 7 through December 19, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, November 6, from 6 to 8pm
Sean Kelly is delighted to announce 'Agnosia, an Illuminated Ontology,' a major installation of neon works over five decades by internationally acclaimed Conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth. This will be Kosuth's first exhibition at the gallery since 2011 and his first exhibition in the new space. The opening reception will take place on Friday, November 6, from 6 to 8pm, the artist will be present.

Featuring over forty works dating from 1965 to the present, the installation simultaneously chronicles Kosuth's fifty-year investigation into the role of language and meaning in art, and his consistent use of neon. The exhibition includes historic early works, featuring one of the most important neons Kosuth ever made, 'Five Fives (to Donald Judd)' [blue], (1965), alongside more recent works such as his 'Camus Illuminated' series (2013). Installed in a response to the gallery's specific architectural space, 'Agnosia, an Illuminated Ontology' will employ areas never before activated for exhibition purposes, creating an all-encompassing and profound experience for the viewer.
