1. Morgan O’Hara, FF Alumn, at Mitchell Algus Gallery, Manhattan, thru March 26

The Mitchell Algus Gallery presents LIVE TRANSMISSION, an exhibition of performative drawings by Morgan O’Hara, opening on Saturday February 18 and continuing until Sunday March 26. A reception for the artist will be held from 6-8 pm on the day of the opening.

Morgan O’Hara’s LIVE TRANSMISSION drawings are made as the artist watches specific activities being performed, the observed movements conveyed via pencils to paper as the artist focuses solely on trajectories of the movement of the performers. The resulting drawings are blind artifacts, documenting the artist’s direct translation of the movements observed – a unique interpretation of “drawing from life.” O’Hara began making her LIVE TRANSMISSION drawings in 1981 and while they have been shown internationally in museums and alternative spaces, this is their first exhibition in a New York gallery since 1997 when they were shown at Gracie Mansion gallery.

Morgan O’Hara has been a member of the international performance community for over forty years. She has drawn / documented the activities of musicians, dancers, performance artists, actors, politicians, laborers, orators, and many others. The current exhibition focuses on drawings of many widely known performers including Cecil Taylor, Nam June Paik, Marina Abramović, Hermann Nitsch, Martha Rosler, Marcel Broodthaers, Merce Cunningham and The Wooster Group (with Willem Defoe and Spalding Grey), among others. Also being shown are drawings documenting recent political oratory and debate by George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and others, including Barack Obama’s final press conference and Donald Trump’s inaugural speech.

In addition to her LIVE TRANSMISSION drawings, Morgan O’Hara has meticulously documented her own activities in TIME STUDIES which she began in 1974. Other ongoing series include PORTRAITS FOR THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY, comprising 155 portraits of individuals based on their geographic displacement patterns, many large site-specific wall drawings and THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF LIVE TRANSMISSION, a series of thematic volumes, begun in 2000, organizing the hundreds of performative drawings the artist has made.

Morgan O’Hara was born in Los Angeles, CA and grew up in post-war Japan. She received her Masters’ Degree in Art from California State University, Los Angeles and has lived in Berkeley, Paris, Berlin, Italy and since 2011, in New York. O’Hara continues to work internationally in performance art festivals, mentor young artists, and teach master classes in drawing and the psychology of creativity.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT

LIVE TRANSMISSION: conceptually based performative drawing

I am interested in the human experience of time and space. My work is culturally contextualized in the practice of drawing as a fundamental human endeavor and is continuous with the time-honored practice of drawing from life. I draw from and build on the historical continuum of the field. It requires presence, connection, direct observation and LIVE TRANSMISSION. Through this work, I transcend the arbitrary "oppositions" between abstract and figurative art, between purely gestural expression and documentary intent, creating narrative work which results in a final product which is not figurative. The drawings themselves become a third actor or mediator in the experience. That which was beneath notice becomes concretized on the page as the paper receives the image.

The method I have developed requires close observation and actual drawing in real time with multiple razor-sharp pencils and both hands. Simultaneous to an action taking place, I condense observed movement into accumulations of graphite line, combining the controlled refinement of classical drawing with the sensuality of spontaneous gesture. LIVE TRANSMISSIONS render visible normally invisible or fleeting movement patterns, active trajectories, through seismograph-like drawing. The time-space coordinates for each drawing are written across the bottom of each page, thus contextualizing each activity in a specific continuum and geographic place.

4. Felix Gonzalez-Torres, FF Alumn, at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Manhattan, March 27

The Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation, Elena Filipovic, David Breslin, and the Whitney Shop invite you to a special talk and book event
to celebrate the release of the book:

Felix Gonzalez-Torres: Specific Objects Without Specific Form

Elena Filipovic, Director of Kunsthalle Basel, will be in conversation with David Breslin, the Whitney's DeMartini Family Curator and Director of the Collection

Monday, March 27
7pm

Whitney Museum of American Art
99 Gansevoort Street

Felix Gonzalez-Torres: Specific Objects Without Specific Form documents the groundbreaking exhibition curated by Elena Filipovic with Danh Vo, Carol Bove, and Tino Sehgal that traveled to WIELS, Brussels; Fondation Beyeler, Basel/Riehen; and MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt in 2010 and 2011. Filipovic curated a retrospective at all three venues, evolving at each location. Midway through each exhibition, Filipovic's installation was removed or altered by one of the artists who was invited to completely reconsider and re-install their own version of the exhibition without any limitations. The result of this structure was a profound meditation on the role that ongoing change and renewal play in Gonzalez-Torres's work.

The book has been years in the making as Elena Filipovic and the Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation worked together to find the best ways to present the complexities and nuances of the exhibition. The book includes installation views of each version of the exhibition and an expansive illustrated checklist with images of each artwork in every instance of its installation. The book's structure allows the reader to see the immensely different ways the artworks can be installed as well as how context acted on and through each piece.

The event is free with RSVP.

7. Jacki Apple, FF Alumn, at Williamson Gallery, Pasadena, CA, thru May 28, and more

Jacki Apple, FF Alumn at Williamson Gallery, Pasadena thru May 28
YOSHIO IKEZAKI: ELEMENTS, curated and designed by JACKI APPLE, features a survey of selected works by the internationally exhibited Japanese artist and educator Yoshio Ikezaki, consisting of sumi ink and watercolor paintings, handmade layered washi paper sculptures and cast metal sculpture. The exhibition opens March 17, 2017 at ArtCenter College of Design’s Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery in Pasadena and continues through May 28, 2017.

YOSHIO IKEZAKI: ELEMENTS is organized around a dialog between materials and images that exemplify four essential elements and their ongoing states of process: Fire/Earth (Hi/Taichi), Water/Air (Mizu/Kuki), Mind Essence/Beingness (Ki), Matter Energy/ Impermanence (Ku). Ikezaki’s works are “the embodiment of Yūgen, a Japanese word pertaining to a profound awareness of the universe which evokes feelings that are inexplicably deep, too mysterious for words, simultaneously subtle and profound,” writes Apple. “Unifying ‘the life of the mind’ with a deeply intuitive physical engagement with material processes, Ikezaki’s paintings and sculptures are grounded in Japanese esthetic principles and philosophies, crafts and materials, interpreted in a contemporary context. His works express the profound power and vulnerability of nature in its relationship to humanity, thus illuminating the deeper meaning of the contemporary global environmental crisis.” Curator Apple's exhibition concept and installation design express those esthetics principles. http://www.artcenter.edu/connect/events/yoshio-ikezaki-elements.html

The exhibition is accompanied by a 64-page hard cover book written and edited by Apple and designed by Winnie Li. A limited edition of 500.

YOSHIO IKEZAKI: ELEMENTS is made possible by a major gift from Dr. Frank Ellsworth; a grant from the Pasadena Art Alliance; a grant from The Japan Foundation and the generosity of the Williamson Gallery Patrons.

9. Dynasty Handbag, FF Alumn, at Casita del Campo, Los Angeles, CA, April 7-8

I, An Moron
or
Childless White Lesbian Coyote in Hollywood, a Star Spangled Bummer

Friday and Saturday April 7th and 8th
9:00 PM

Cavern Club Celebrity Theater
at CASITA DEL CAMPO RESTAURANT
1920 Hyperion Avenue
Silverlake - Los Angeles 90027
323-662-4255

20$ advanced
25$ door

After a sold out free premier at the Hammer Museum last October, Dynasty Handbag brings her demento stand up to the east side of hell.

Dynasty Handbag's new falling-apart stand-up show is a current events review of her privates and her publics, covering topics such as white women having babies and how this makes her feel enraged/grossedout/inadequate, a cover of Rihanna’s well-known blue-collar anthem celebrating the proletariat and an analysis of coyote discrimination in relationship to the Hollywood desert nightmare that is now a metaphor for complete global destruction. Show is updated to include horrible current event jokes. Day of show events even.

DH PRESS:
Artillery Magazine on "I, An Moron"

"Dynasty Handbag’s dreams of financial security couldn’t completely kill her nihilist streak, thank God! She started family friendly enough, dressed in a dapper white pantsuit and talking about lesbians who BYO hemp water to cultural events, because they are so environmentally conscious that they won’t use corporately wasteful and probably racist Dixie cups for soy milk beverages that are responsible for destroying the rain forest. “We lesbians always have a large hairy foot in the responsible hole,” she noted.

Cameron started to bring back the freak soon enough, though—oh, here’s Dynasty Handbag stripping to her flesh-colored Spanx and giving birth with groans and Beelzebub screams to an invisible tot—oh, here’s Dynasty Handbag now talking about how she got pregnant with her wife’s eggs and her dog’s, stepfather’s, and brother’s sperm. Next came a super weird bit where Dynasty Handbag enacted “being in a woman’s body” and her joy of “being in my golden globe” by pretending to pick muffin crumbs out of her sweats for several minutes, and then pantomiming washing her feet for several more. Next, she sang Led Zeppelin’s “Over the Hills and Far Away” (Hey lady—you got the love I need/Maybe more than enough) in a frantic shriek and then shouted “This is going to get me into the Whitney MacArthur Guggenheim gift card, but if not, I don’t care because I’ve got Hollywood!” read full article

10. Mark Berghash, FF Alumn, at Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, NY, opening April 23

Mark Berghash
HVCCA’s 2017 Spring Artist-in-Residence

I’s Closed, I’s Open: The Inner Self
Opening Reception: April 23, 5:00-7:00PM
On View: April 1, 2017- August 30, 2017

I’s Closed, I’s Open: The Inner Self is a series of head and shoulder photographic diptychs, each one accompanied by a Haiku-like poem. In creating each portrait the subjects are requested to think about their inner life. The first image is with eyes closed, the second image with eyes open. After the photo session the subject wrote down his or her thoughts and feelings. From these, Berghash and his wife Rachel, a poet, composed a Haiku-like poem for each subject. Berghash’s intention in making these portraits is to record aspects of a person's true inner self.

In an article for Art F City in 2016, Rom Vaughan said, “Whether Berghash succeeds in truthfully plumbing his subjects’ minds is known for certain only by them; but there is no
doubt that he strikes to the core of the precept that photography is significantly related to memory.

Livia Straus, Director of HVCCA spoke of Berghash’s work saying, “His combination of words and images create a powerful confessional mode that both reveals and hides.”
Among other institutions, Berghash’s work is included in collections of and has been exhibited at The California Museum of Photography, Riverside; Dayton Art Institute, Dayton, Ohio; Franklin Furnace Archive, NYC; International Center of Photography, NYC; International Polaroid Collection; the Jewish Museum, NYC; Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC; MOMA, NYC; Museum on the Seam, Jerusalem, Israel; and Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art.

As part of his exhibition at HVCCA, Mark Berghash will be photographing subjects, especially first and second-generation immigrants from the Peekskill community on April 1-2, 2017. Photographs taken for this project will be hung with the exhibition of
I’s Closed, I’s Open, photographs

The Berghash opening will follow VIEWFINDER, a new play by Donna Barkman, directed by Mara Mills.

Dear Friends,

I hope you're well. I'm writing to let you know about a series of performative interventions happening in public spaces that I am organizing with the 18th Street Art Center in Santa Monica this coming week. Myself and a group of 8 performers will be developing a gestural vocabulary based on research into the movements of commuters on Santa Monica's Expo Line Metro along the adjacent bicycle and pedestrian pathways. Three interventions will happen at sites around Santa Monica on Saturday March 18, Tuesday March 21, and Friday March 24, all from 11am-1pm.
The format of these actions in public space will be guerrilla, therefore we will announce meeting locations for the public interventions via text message 24 hours in advance. Text "IMDOWN" to 555888 to receive these updates along with text-based artworks during the week. As well, a public wall mural will become part of this project and will remain after the performances are complete.
I would also like to invite you to join us for an open rehearsal for the project, which will take place on 18th Street's campus in the Curator's Lounge on Friday, March 17, from 6-9 pm. Light refreshments and drinks will be served.
Lastly, I am thrilled and honoured that OUT Magazine featured me in a article as 1 of 5 queer artists making important political work in these current times.
Thank you as always for your support and to more "actions" and "movements”!
All best,
Brendan

Schloss gained attention in the 70s as a critically acclaimed performance artist and has gone on to create groundbreaking work in a variety of mediums including film, video, sound poetry, new music, composing, books, and mail art. She co-founded A’s—an interdisciplinary loft space that was a hub for music, exhibitions, performance art, films and videos. A hotbed of experimentation, A’s featured works from Eric Bogosian, Glenn Branca, Jean-Michel Basquiat, John Zorn, Elliott Sharp, Richard Hambleton, Liquid Liquid, Carolee Schneemann, The Coachmen, Kim Gordon, Phoebe Legere, Mania D, Thurston Moore, Shirin Neshat, Lee Ranaldo, Sur Rodney (Sur), Alan Vega and Ai Weiwei.

Shifting from one genre to another, she has created a finely interwoven body of work. Always on the cutting edge, Schloss fused new forms of creative expression and technology into her film, video, cyber art and performance work.

Schloss’s performances possess a spirit described by Linda Burnham as “a contagious sense of wonder.” These presentations, which could involve Schloss’s cyclical recitation of the alphabet, live painting, closed-circuit video, and music all at once, combine the anti-art whimsy of Fluxus, scientific exploration, Cageian indeterminacy, and a site-specific empathy that makes every act unique.

In her honor, SSB will reproduce a limited number of FORGET ABOUT THAT SWEET FUCK t-shirts from How She Sees It by Her (1981) as seen in Toyo Tsuchiya’s photo of Arleen. Tees for men and women will be available at the gallery, or bring your own shirt and we’ll silkscreen it for you then and there for $25 a pop. All proceeds the evening of the event go to benefit Arleen. The evening is co-curated by Stuart Ginsberg, and SSB directors Susan Martin and Quintan Ana Wikswo.

Film/Video Screening
How She Sees It by Her, 1981 (18 minutes)
The title of this film is derived from the story HOW SHE SEES IT BY HER, a 58-page written journal of personal observations scanning life and survival in New York City in the early 80s. Originating as a piece of sound poetry and later a public performance, Arleen mixed her voice and personal observations with footage from the time period.

Glenn Branca Symphony #4 (Physics), 1984 (11 minutes)
A docu-collage in sound and music capturing the godfather of classical noise throughout a multi-city European tour in 1983. Featuring Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, Barbara Ess, Arleen Schloss, Margaret De Wys, Stephan Wischerth, Amanda Linn, and others, Branca explains his harmonics over vintage shots of his high-energy conducting style.

Performance on the subway to combat crime in New York City, 1979 (12 minutes)
In response to the spike in subway violence in 1979, Arleen Schloss executed a performance art workshop/social experiment to combat crime. Beginning at the Grand Street subway stop in New York, Schloss and her collaborators sang, danced, and performed along the F train to make the subway safe, encountering baffled commuters, unsympathetic police, and bemused spectators.

Sun Daze Away, 1989 (9 minutes)
Using one of the first 8mm video cameras produced, Schloss shoots a musical and collage-filled travelogue throughout America’s Southwest. Intercutting interviews from local townspeople, landscapes and news footage, Sun Daze Away has an experimental quality with bursts of color and sound.
