2. Jerri Allyn, Anne Gauldin, FF Alumns, at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, AK, thru April 22

The Waitresses are thrilled to be included in the exhibition, Men of Steel, Women of Wonder: Modern American Heroes in Contemporary Times, at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas, on view February 8 - April 22, 2019.

Jerri Allyn and Anne Gauldin were commissioned to create a new placemat, as part of an installation addressing 21st century concerns. Wonder Waitress and other women of wonder use their super powers to demand healthy food, deconstruct stereotypes, form work alliances, and combat sexual harassment.

"Men of Steel, Women of Wonder is a new exhibition developed by Crystal Bridges Assistant curator, Alejo Benedetti, that examines art-world responses to Superman and Wonder woman, ranging from their Depression-era origins to today's contemporary artist interpretations. The exhibition features over 70 paintings, photographs, installations, videos and more by over 50 artists.

Offering fresh perspectives on these cultural icons and tapping into our current national love for superheroes, the artists in Men of Steel, Women of Wonder use Superman and Wonder Woman to explore national identity, American values, social politics, representation, and the concept of humanity in an exciting, thought-provoking, unforgettable exhibition."

3. Katya Grokhovsky, FF Alumn, at BRIC, Brooklyn, thru April 7

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Katya Grokhovsky, 2018, The Immigrant, video still

I am very excited to invite you to BRIC Biennial: Volume III curated by Elizabeth Ferrer and Jenny Gerow at BRIC House: 647 Fulton St, Brooklyn, NY 11217, in which I will be presenting the premiere of my long term project The Future is Bright, a site-specific two channel video, painting and sculptural installation, which explores alienation, longing and family history. The project is proudly supported by Asylum Arts Small Grant. The exhibition is on view until April 7th 2019.
Read about the project in Asylum Arts Magazine Feature:

BRIC Biennial Volume III
On view: February 7th - April 7th 2019
Curated by Elizabeth Ferrer and Jenny Gerow
BRIC House
647 Fulton St, Brooklyn, NY 11217
https://www.bricartsmedia.org/art-exhibitions/bric-biennial-volume-iii-south-brooklyn-edition

With the BRIC Biennial: Volume III, South Brooklyn Edition, BRIC continues to dedicate its Biennial to emerging and mid-career artists of exceptional creativity who are based in a specific region of Brooklyn, highlighting the significance of the borough as a place where artists create work and develop their careers.
During this time of political turmoil, the 2019 BRIC Biennial offers a look at how artists envision "The Impossible Possible." Rather than reflecting our current state of affairs, their work looks inward, whether reflecting the sphere of the personal or some alternate reality. Some artists create fantastical beings or environments, conjuring spaces beyond the here and now, whether to suggest utopian or dystopian ways of being. Others work with materials in unconventional ways as a means of rethinking gender and racial binaries, or to push against norms of painting and sculpture. Some look to remove themselves, to some degree, from the current social system, focusing instead on overlooked and undervalued communities and the values they embody. Throughout these strategies, these artists express the need to question the status quo, as they seek new models of working and existing outside of our current social and political system.
Artists featured in the exhibition at BRIC House include: Eleanna Anagnos, Bobby Anspach, Laura Bernstein, Sarah E. Brook, Liz Collins, Katya Grokhovsky, Phoenix Lindsey-Hall, Las Hermanas Iglesias (Lisa and Janelle Iglesias), Vera Iliatova, Myeongsoo Kim, Rachel Klinghoffer, Qiana Mestrich, Levan Mindiashvili, Jordan Nassar, Gustavo Prado, Yi Xin Tong, Frank Wang Yefeng, Dale Williams, and Quay Quinn Wolf.
Curatorial advisors for the BRIC Biennial III include Eriola Pira, Jesse Firestone, Will Hutnick, Sarah Simpson, and Connie Kang and Danielle Wu of An/Other.

7. Coco Fusco, FF Alumn, in 69th Berlinale, Germany, thru Feb. 17

Coco Fusco: 69th Berlinale, The 14th Forum Expanded: New Spaces, More Time

Vivir en junio con la lengua afuera (To live in June with Your Tongue Hanging Out), 2018, 25 minute single channel digital film, dimensions variable
Alexander Gray Associates is pleased to announce Coco Fusco's participation in the 69th Berlinale, The 14th Forum Expanded: New Spaces, More Time, with the film Vivir en junio con la lengua afuera (To live in June with Your Tongue Hanging Out) (2018).

Screening times:

February 9, 2019, 13:00 at Kino Arsenal 1, Berlin
February 10, 2019, 17:00 at Werkstattkino@silent green, Berlin
February 10, 2019, 21:30 at CinemaxX 3, Berlin
February 17, 2019, 16:00 at International, Berlin

The Berlinale is a unique place of artistic exploration and entertainment. It is one of the largest public film festivals in the world, attracting tens of thousands of visitors from around the globe each year. For the film industry and the media, the eleven days in February are also one of the most important events in the annual calendar and an indispensable trading forum.

The Berlin International Film Festival enjoys an eventful history. The festival was created for the Berlin public in 1951, at the beginning of the Cold War, as a "showcase of the free world". Shaped by the turbulent post-war period and the unique situation of a divided city, the Berlinale has developed into a place of intercultural exchange and a platform for the critical cinematic exploration of social issues. To this day it is considered the most political of all the major film festivals.

Every year, around 400 films of all genres, lengths and formats are shown in the various sections and special presentations of the Berlinale. Across the spectrum from feature films to documentary forms and artistic experiments, the audience is invited to encounter highly contrasting milieus, ways of life and attitudes, to put their own judgements and prejudices to the test and to reinvigorate their experience of seeing and perceiving in the realm between classic narrative forms and extraordinary aesthetics. The programme also thrives on an intense dialogue with its audiences. A rich array of spoken-word events, audience discussions and expert panels facilitate an active participation in the festival.

About Coco Fusco's Film
Though he first supported the Cuban revolution as a young man, Reinaldo Arenas spent much of his adult life on the island as a persona non grata because of his open homosexuality and politically dissident views. While his work was banned inside the country, his manuscripts were smuggled out by friends and won prizes abroad. To this day, his novels and poems are absent from Cuban libraries, bookstores, and schools. In the 1970s he would organize secret literary gatherings in Havana's Lenin Park and share his writings with friends. When he escaped from arrest in 1974, he spent months in the park as a fugitive and drafted his memoir, Before Night Falls.

Fusco returns to Arenas' hiding place to restore a sense of historical memory to what is now a virtually abandoned site. With the help of journal entries written by one of the friends who helped Arenas while he was a fugitive, Fusco was able to locate and shoot in the spot where Arenas hid, wrote, and fished for food. The three Cuban artists in the film attempt to commit to memory one of Arenas's most famous poems about yearning for a homeland that has been ripped away from those who fought to free it.

Monday, February 25th @ 7 pm. Modern Mondays at Doc Fortnight features An Evening with Annie Sprinkle & Beth Stephens.
The evening includes a screening of their film first seen at the most recent Documenta, WATER MAKES US WET: AN ECOSEXUAL ADVENTURE.
In a poetic blend of curiosity, humor, sensuality, and concern, Annie Sprinkle (a former sex worker), Beth Stephens (a professor), and their dog, Butch, cruise the state of California, meeting a diverse group of people-performance artists, biologists, water-treatment plant workers, scientists, and others- who reaffirm the power of water, life, and love. The film chronicles the politics and pleasure of H2O from an ecosexual perspective.
Preceded by The Tree. 2017. USA. Directed by Keith Wilson. The Tree provides a unique take on common critiques of our wasteful Western culture. Follow the life of a little pine tree, groomed for Christmas, from its uneventful planting to its untimely death. Wilson's short urges greater consideration, compassion, and respect for the natural world.
The screenings are followed by a live presentation by Annie Sprinkle, Beth Stephens, Keith Wilson, and a dozen of their friends: Linda M. Montano, Judy Dunaway, David Benjamin Steinberg, Joy Brooke Fairfield, Betty Grumble, Dragonfly (Robin Laverne Wilson), Veronica Vera, Ms. Ter, Barbikat, Jordan Freeman, Valentina Parez.

11. EIDIA House, FF Alumn, at Plato's Cave, Brooklyn, Feb. 28

Exhibition extended and closing reception!

"Bob Witz: An Orbit All By Himself"

December 12, 2018 to February 28, 2019


Plato's Cave @ EIDIA House

14 Dunham Place, Brooklyn 11249



Closing Reception Thursday February 28th 6-8pm


Hours 1- 6pm, Tuesday - Saturday (or by appointment)

EIDIA House announces the 29th initiative of its ongoing PLATO'S CAVE exhibition, started in 2009. This special holiday salon will feature works from Bob Witz's wry and witty "Milk Carton" series as well as painting portraits of characters conjured from the artist's deeply esoteric imagination.


The result of a meditation inspired originally by the lunches Witz's mother prepared for him as a child in Tomah, Wisconsin, "Milk Cartons" - we dare to propose - is a more subversive twin to Warhol's Soup Cans.


It is an honor for EIDIA House to curate and install Bob Witz's work in the Plato's Cave vault space. While many of the sculptures exist in private and public collections, it will be the first ever exhibit of the near total compilation of Witz's "Milk Carton" series, dating back to the 1980's and including a number of works created in 2018.


Bob recounts the origin story in his characteristic wry terms: "One day, I had this milk carton and an orange juice container and I thought I'd make some art of it."


To further commemorate this often overlooked artist, EIDIA is also in the process of making a documentary film on Witz, a mainstay of New York's downtown scene in the 1970's and 80's. The film (Bob Witz Untitled) will feature Witz's paintings and sculptures, and the literary arts publication "APPEARANCES" to capture the artist's - still at work in his modest one room studio loft - compelling and ever-unfolding story. Including interviews with fellow artists, colleagues, scholars and friends, the film is also a portrait of the artistic circle that spanned the 60 years of Witz's enduring art practice.

Like us at EIDIA House, they have plenty of good things to say:


"I immediately fell in love and was enamored with his works the "Milk Cartons." The work is very much of its time using non-traditional art materials and the process. In the Art World Bob is an orbit all by himself...somebody identified Bob as an outsider artist-no way...he was very much an insider but, as an insider he was an outsider."

- Jean-Noël Herlin, an artist, curator, archivist and bookseller


"I love it [Bob's work] - so quirky and eccentric. He really gets involved with strange materials. He has a really good 'I don't care attitude.'"

- Betty Tompkins, painter


"I really don't like categories, but Bob is an outsider / insider because he's lived in New York all these years."
- Bill Jensen, painter


"Bob is kind of like the last bohemian."
- Phong Bui, Co-Founder and Artistic Director of The Brooklyn Rail


"Bob's a trip!"
- Joe Lewis, visual artist, photographer, musician, art critic, former co-director of FASHION MODA, 1978-1993


Bob Witz was born in Tomah, Wisconsin in 1934. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1959. His correspondence with Artforum magazine in 1973 was published by the editor Robert Pincus-Witten as "Robert Witz: Selections from the Tomah Letters". He is founder and editor of the literary arts magazine, APPEARANCES 1976 - 2000. Witz had a retrospective at the New York Studio School, curated by Phong Bui in 2012 and numerous one person and group shows over the years. His works are in many private and public collections.


For PLATO'S CAVE, EIDIA House Inc. co-directors Melissa P. Wolf and Paul Lamarre (aka EIDIA) curate invited fellow artists to create an installation with (in some cases) an accompanying limited edition. EIDIA House functions as an art gallery and meeting place, collaborating with artists to create "socially radical" art forms framed within the discipline of aesthetic research.

A valentine like no other: John Kelly again pays loving homage to Joni Mitchell's music, with a focus on her version of 'love songs'. Many of Ms. Mitchell's greatest songs dwell on the subject of love-from the rush of longing, to vulnerability and loss. These remarkable songs are vivid interrogations of romantic relationships that transform the personal into the universal.
"...love is touching souls, surely you touched mine..."
Joni Mitchell

13. Judith Sloan, FF Alumn, at City Lore, Manhattan, Feb. 15-16

Judith Sloan's project will be featured at City Lore Feb 15 and 16th

Reading/Performances of IT CAN HAPPEN HERE

Friday and Saturday February 15 and 16th at 7:30 PM.

Friday and Saturday February 15 and 16th at 7:30 PM.
City Lore 56, East 1st Street, Ground Floor, NY NY 10003

Tickets: $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
Day One (Feb. 15) tickets HERE
Day Two (Feb. 16) tickets HERE

Performed by Meah Pace, Judith Sloan, Lisette Santiago, Bianca Vitale, Emily Wexler.
Directed by Alexandra Aron.

In "It Can Happen Here," two hairdressers-one black, one white-in an ever-changing neighborhood in Queens, embark on a new dream from their two-chair hair salon. They follow their passion for singing and nurturing a community in the midst of a national political climate of chaos, division and autocracy. These two women from different generations have lived next door to each other for 34 years and have worked together for over a decade. They confront the repressive political climate and gentrification with idiosyncrasies and humor, until one of their clients, facing a deportation crisis, presents them with a moral dilemma.
Written by Judith Sloan, winner of the Brendan Gill Prize. "It Can Happen Here," references the Sinclair Lewis novel, It Can't Happen Here, which chronicled the fictitious election of a power-hungry politician who stirred up fear by promising a return to patriotism. For nine months, Sloan, award-winning performer, and radio producer (Crossing the BLVD, 1001 Voices: Symphony for a New America), talked with residents of Queens - the most diverse locality in the U.S. - about their hopes, fears, and aspirations. "Like the novel, It Can't Happen Here, my play is inspired by real events," says Sloan. "It Can Happen Here" was commissioned by the Queens Council on the Arts' inaugural Artist Commissioning Program (ACP), which provides local choreographers, playwrights and composers with funding towards the creation and production of original work. Selected for her project's capacity to tell untold stories in American art, Sloan was one of four artists chosen for the 2017-2018 inaugural award.
Sloan's signature song from "It Can Happen Here" was a semi-finalist in songwriting for the 2018 Song of the Year competition.
Performances will be followed by a talkback.
Friday February 15th Moderated by Margaret Rose Vendryes, Chair of the Department of Performing andFine Arts and Director of the Fine Arts Gallery at York College, Queens, New York.
Saturday February 16 Moderated by John Kuo Wei Tchen, Inaugural Clement A. Price Chair in Public History and the Humanities at Rutgers University.

22. Hector Canonge, Rory Golden, Anya Liftig, FF Alumns, at The Queens Museum, Flushing Meadows, Feb. 17

Hector Canonge, FF Alumn, starts the 2019 season of LiVEART.US in collaboration with Emergency INDEX on Sunday, February 17, 2 PM at Queens Museum.

LiVEART.US presents Emergency INDEX and the program "Performance & Documentation.

LiVEART.US, Performance Art initiative created and organized by artist, and independent curator, Hector Canonge, welcomes the presentation of the special program "Performance & Documentation" in collaboration with Emergency INDEX featuring the work of local artists, and the release of INDEX Vol. 7, a publication that brings together 260 performance works from 51 countries, documented and discussed by their creators.

This month's program, a jointly effort by the makers and editors of Emergency INDEX and LiVEART.US, brings together, performance-makers and editors to address the performance-maker's struggle for their voice in the framing and discussion of their own work, and to think about self-documentation, introspective practices, and how artists see themselves in Performance Art. Guest artists featured in the new publication, INDEX Vol. 7, will perform and join in the panel discussion with curators, editors, and art administrators.

Featured Artists:
NICOLE ANTEBI in collaboration with l'Ao (Melissa Grey and David Morneau), RORY GOLDEN, NINA ISABELLE, KYOUNG EUN KANG, and BRIAN McCORKLE with EDWARD SHARP.

Panelists:
Anya Liftig, Zoe Guttenplan, Hector Canonge, and guest artists.

Emergency INDEX is part of Ugly Duckling Presse's Emergency series of performance-related publications, which also includes Emergency Playscripts, eclectic performance notations which highlight tensions between text and performance, as well as the forthcoming Emergency Analysis series, annual monographs on performance from theorists outside the field. Emergency INDEX is inspired by the early issues of the performance art magazine High Performance (1978-1997), in which artists were openly invited to send in reports of their performance artworks. Performance art, at that time a new form, had yet to define itself; therefore, the editors of High Performance deemed that any artist who called their work performance art was legitimately defining the field. Consequently, High Performance became an amazing survey of real practice, a definition of performance art created internally by its varied creators, not post-rationalized or interpreted by critics and institutions. Since then, performance art has become one of the best documented forms of performance practices, while undocumented acts of performance have proliferated in fields outside of visual art.
More information: www.emergencyindex.com

LiVEART.US is platform established to support and feature works by local, national, and international artists working in Performance Art and its diverse manifestations. Created and organized by interdisciplinary artist, Hector Canonge, LiVEART.US features works where the body, as main instrument for artistic creation and expression, is the catalyst for sensorial experiences, cultural interpretation, and critical reflection. The program's main objective is to further support the creation and presentation of new works in Live Action Art in an environment suitable for reflection and dialogue. LiVEART.US follows and complements the monthly program TALKaCTIVE initiated by Canonge in September 2015. Since its inception in 2016, LiVEART.US has presented the work of artists from diverse cultural backgrounds, ages, gender, and national origin creating a dynamic structure and an international network for the exploration, experimentation and execution of Live Art practices.

About the artists:

Nicole Antebi works in non-fiction animation, motion graphics, installation while simultaneously connecting and creating opportunities for other artists through larger curatorial and editorial projects such as Water, CA (a six-year collaboration with Enid Ryce) and Winter Shack (a three-year collaboration with Alex Branch). She has taught film/media courses at CUNY Staten Island, Parsons The New School, and Cal State Monterey Bay. She frequently collaborates with UNY, l'ao , and most recently with electronic music pioneer, Vince Clarke. She recently co-produced the five-part web series, Just Browsing, written by Joanne Mcneil and was the 2015 recipient of a Jerome Foundation film/media grant for a forthcoming film about the border landscapes of El Paso and Juárez.

l'Artiste ordinaire is the inevitable collaboration between Melissa Grey & David Morneau. They create sound in performance. Their music is a heady mix of machined EDM beats, sound art practices, and soulful figurations. They bore inside moments of sonic ecstasy, exploding them into a trillion sparkling shards of shimmering sounds that swirl in a paradox of energized stasis. l'Artiste ordinaire designs projects that expand in endless variation to collaborate with musicians, video artists, designers, and creative technologists with Grey's benjolin synthesizer and Morneau's trombone at the center.

Rory Golden has received fellowships from Yaddo, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, the Blue Mountain Center for major projects"Your One Black Friend" and "See Related Story: The Murder of J.R. Warren".Recent awards include a research grant from Duke University Libraries Special Collections, a Puffin Foundation Grant a residency at Blue Sky Project and the Manhattan Graphics Center, all towards completing "You Think I Can Eat All This Chicken Here?" In 2012 Rory had a solo exhibition "Pack up a Little Truck and Keep it on Push: Works on Paper 2008 Forward" at Art for Change (NYC) and he was the Phillip C. Curtis Artist in Residence at Albion College (MI).

Nina Isabelle is a process-based multidisciplinary artist working with language, perception, action and phenomena. Through performance, object construction, photography, video, and documentation her projects aim to generate processes that fortify meaning through psychic imprinting in spite of cerebral interpretations. Motivated by the failure of dialogue, the dissonance between form and content, the imposition of objects in space, as well as the deficiencies of literal language, she frames her process as both an inquiry into and a demonstration of a recursive method that continually cultivate futures by reforming the past. Isabelle is the founder and organizer of Three Phase Center for Collaborative Art Research & Building where she facilitates and documents artist's process, projects and presentations.

Hector Canonge (Founder and director of LiVEART.US) is an interdisciplinary artist, independent curator, and cultural entrepreneur based in New York City. His work incorporates the use of new media technologies, cinematic narratives, Live Action Art, and Social Practice to explore and treat issues related to constructions 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 installations, interactive platforms, and performance art work have been exhibited and presented in the United States, Latin America, Europe and Asia. As cultural entrepreneur, Canonge created and runs the annual Performance Art Festival, ITINERANT, started ARTerial Performance Lab (APLAB), an transcontinental initiative to foster collaboration among performance artists from the Americas, and directs his independent programs: PERFORMEANDO, a program that focuses on featuring Hispanic performance artists living in the United States and Europe, PERFORMAXIS, an international residency program in collaboration with galleries and art spaces in Latin America. After living most of his life in the United States, Canonge returned to South America in 2012, and lived abroad for almost 3 years. The artist returned to New York City in late 2015 to continue with the development and execution of new projects, exhibitions, and initiatives among them: TALKaCTIVE, LiVEART.US, and CONVIVIR the international residency program at MODULO 715. In 2017, Canonge organized the performance art platform, NEXUS, premiered during Miami Art Basel, and worked in the development of LATITUDES, the first International Performance Art Festival of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, presented in Bolivia.
