4. Suzanne Lacy, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Aviva Rahmani, FF Alumns, at 32A Cooper Square, Manhattan, Feb. 24

In this conversation, artists Suzanne Lacy, Lynn Hershman Leeson, and Aviva Rahmani, joined by writer Nancy Princenthal, will discuss how they have addressed sexual violence through art and activism. Princenthalʼs recent book, Unspeakable Acts: Women, Art and Sexual Violence in the 1970s, looks back at the period when sexual assault first became something women could talk about.

This panel discussion is in conjunction with dieFirmaʼs inaugural exhibition, ...for Gloria, on view through March 1st. Gloria Kisch lived and worked in Los Angeles from 1961-1982 and participated in the Womanʼs Building where many artists explored the subject of violence against women. Critic and Womanʼs Building co-founder Arlene Raven once described Kischʼs practice as, "a meditation on physical, psychic, and collective environments."

Special thanks to Jenny Jaskey for organizing.
The event is free and open to the public. Space is limited,
seating is first come first served.
Please RSVP at programs@diefirmanyc.com

6. Judith Sloan, FF Alumn, at Queens Theater in the Park, Flushing, March 7

Judith Sloan at the Queens Theater in the Park with a new work in development IT CAN HAPPEN HERE
March 7, 8 pm
Free
Reservations HERE:
https://queenstheatre.secure.force.com/ticket/#/instances/a0F2E00000qVncyUAC

It Can Happen Here is a play with music originally commissioned by Queens Council on the Arts, Artist Commissioning Program
Queens Theater in the Park presents a reading/performance
Written by Judith Sloan
Directed by Alexandra Aron
Cast includes: Judith Sloan, Sasha Boykin, Yael Reich, Bianca Vitale, Gabrielle Flores

About the play: The title, It Can Happen Here, refers to 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 playwright/actor and longtime chronicler of Queens (Crossing the BLVD https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wcl78awSegY&feature=youtu.be 1001 Voices: Symphony for a New America) https://vimeo.com/257071360- talked with residents of Southeastern Queens about our hopes, fears, and aspirations. "What struck me over and over were stories of love and support that often fly under the radar in times of extreme duress. I decided to zoom in on conversations between women. Like the novel, It Can't Happen Here, my play is inspired by real events," says Sloan. In the play, Riva and Serena, two hairdressers from different generations and races, embark on a dream and create a sound studio in the basement of their hair salon in a Queens neighborhood. We hear humorous stories about their families, customers, and neighbors, as well as discussions of gentrification and our current political climate. Then, when a family member of one of their clients faces deportation, the women are confronted with a moral dilemma.

10. Mark Bloch, FF Alumn, now online at whitehotmagazine.com

https://whitehotmagazine.com/articles/or-rrose-s-lavy-/4513

Mark Bloch has written an article on the endgame of the great 57th Street Duchampian gallery Francis Naumann Fine Art's which will close its doors at the end of this month. In Whitehot Magazine, Bloch reviews "Depicting Duchamp: Portraits of Marcel Duchamp and/or Rrose Sélavy"

"What could be better than art that is mixed with humor, intelligence, and eroticism? His last show, a collection of portraits of Duchamp, is a tour de force because it shows works that each carry one of these interesting stories, either of the intelligent, humorous or erotic variety or in the best cases, all three."

"One of the voices that have kept Duchamp's questions alive, Francis M. Naumann, is voluntarily closing the doors of his own gallery at 24 West 57th Street in New York after an extraordinary run. Before opening shop, Naumann was an art historian and curator who specialized in the subject of Duchamp and New York Dada in particular."

"Two tendencies developed in the ensuing years as a result of Duchamp's infra-thin questions and gestures. One faction, comprised mostly of latecomers to Marcel's subtle soirée, is enormous, practically all-encompassing now, and it has destroyed what was once barely admirable about the old art world, reducing it to an incomprehensible vomitorium of bad jokes and Botox eroticism, choking itself with freshly minted dollar bills while it congratulates itself for its good taste and restraint for managing to keep itself one garish gold nugget shy of Donald Trump's interior decoration skills. But there is another more nuanced camp that has always taken its cues directly from Duchamp, riffing on the wry richness of his output and the important implications of his suggestions. That faction "got" the deadly messages lurking behind Marcel's jokes from the beginning and has collectively made it their mission to insure that his unanswered queries continue to breathe. "

11. Doug Beube, FF Alumn, at Performance Arcade 2020, Wellington, NZ, Feb. 26-March 1

Friends,

I'm honored and pleased to tell you that my social justice art installation entitled 'Wash' will be premiered at the Performance Arcade 2020, in Wellington, NZ. The installation will be exhibited in a shipping container (along with twenty other artists exhibiting/performing in their own shipping containers). The exhibition will be open to the public from 2/26-3/1. Wash is an interactive installation where participates are invited to wash away ethnic slurs cut into the surface of handmade soap. With my NZ video assistant we're hoping to livestream or at least post daily images and videos to Instagram of audience members washing the slurs from the inked soaps.

You can read the proposal on my website by clicking the 'Wash' link to the page that shows the description and photographs. I encourage you to read the insightful essays by three American linguists who specialize in ethnic slurs, their history and contemporary usage. In their essays, Michael Adams, Cecelia Cutler and Hiram Smith discuss what it means to vilify someone by 'othering' them. In context to 'Wash' and its timely significance in today's culture, their discussion is particularly poignant.

I'll be at the exhibition every day and invite you to drop by if you're in the area. It's only an eighteen hour plane ride from NYC to NZ (not including layovers) and worth the trip to see other international artists participating in this unique venue. I look forward to seeing you soon.

Peace,

Doug

14. Henriëtte Brouwers, John Malpede, FF Alumns, at Skid Row History Museum and Archive, Los Angeles, CA, opening March 7

WHAT: Exhibition created by Rosten Woo, Anna Kobara, Henriëtte Brouwers, John Malpede
How to house 7,000 people in Skid Row?
WHEN: Opening Reception March 7, 6 to 8pm
Exhibition hours: Thurs, Fri & Sat. 2-5 pm
Exhibition dates: March 7 through August 29, 2020.
WHERE: Skid Row History Museum and Archive
250 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90012
A project of Los Angeles Poverty Department
For Further Information on the Exhibition and Special Events Please call or email
Tel. 213 413-107 | info@lapovertydept.org | lapovertydept.org

How to house 7,000 people in Skid Row?
We're talking about housing everyone now living on the streets of Skid Row -and more.
Tired of promises and no solutions to L.A.'s housing crisis? At the exhibition, learn together and in public how housing works and could work in L.A.
A coalition of Skid Row community members and groups have created "Skid Row Now & 2040" a plan that identifies funding sources to house people who have extremely low incomes. The exhibition created by Woo, Kobara, Brouwers & Malpede makes the solutions in the plan graphically legible.
You will be able to understand how each funding mechanism works and how many dollars could be raised and therefore how many people could be housed by the City's adoption of these income-generating tools. They include dollars for housing that could be generated from: inclusionary zoning, a vacancy tax, and the creation of a tax-increment financing district. Worry not--- all these concepts will be graphically and simply explained by the exhibition. What you get to do is choose your mechanisms and determine their geographical boundaries. When your stack of dollars from each of your sources reaches $3.5 Billion, Congratulations! You have a viable plan for housing 7,000 People in Skid Row. Next: the hard work of getting City Council to enact it.
At the March 7th opening, The Los Angeles Poverty Department will present a 25-minute introduction to the exhibition ----a dystopic, performative warning: one that imagines a new Amazon headquarters in Skid Row.
During the development phase of the project, "How to House 7,000 People on Skid Row," presented two public conversations with housing policy experts and community organizers. Additional public events will take place during the run of the exhibition. At the next event, on Wednesday March 18, from 4-8pm, members of the Anti-Eviction Mapping will continue to collect stories associated with particular places on Skid Row--- a continuation of the work they began in October at the Festival for All Skid Row Artists.
The project "How to House 7,000 People in Skid Row" is supported with funding from A Blade of Grass, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, with additional support provided by an Engaging Humanities Grant from the University of California Humanities Research Institute.

Artist Bio's
Rosten Woo is an artist, designer, and writer living in Los Angeles. His projects aim to help people understand complex systems, re-orient themselves to places, and participate in group decision-making. He acts as a collaborator and consultant to a variety of grassroots organizations including Little Tokyo Service Center, the Black Workers Center, Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy, and Esperanza Community Housing Corporation, as well as the city of Los Angeles, and the California State Parks. His work has been exhibited at the Cooper-Hewitt Design Triennial, the Venice Architecture Biennale, and various piers, public housing developments, shopping malls, and parks. He is co-founder and former executive director of the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP), winner of the 2016 National Design Award for institutional achievement.

By day, Anna Kobara works in non-profit affordable housing development and finance. By night, she works with the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project (AEMP) on data visualization and mapping projects. Her work aims to support community organizations heading housing justice campaigns such as rent control, tenant rights, anti-displacement, anti-dispossession, and anti-gentrification. Her recent work includes supporting Tenants Together with their Rent Control for All campaign by creating an online, interactive database of rent control and renter protection policies throughout California.
John Malpede directs, performs, and engineers multi-event projects that have theatrical, installation, public art, and education components. In 1985, he founded Los Angeles Poverty Development (LAPD), a performance group comprised primarily of homeless and formerly homeless people who make art, live, and work on Skid Row. He has produced projects working with communities throughout the US, as well as in the UK, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Bolivia. His 2004 work RFK in EKY sought to recreate Robert Kennedy's 1968 "war on poverty" tour in the course of a four-day, 200-mile series of events focused on historic and current issues and social policy. As a 2008-2009 fellow at MIT's Center for Advanced Visual Studies, Malpede developed Bright Futures in response to the worldwide financial crisis. In 2013, John Malpede received the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award. In 2014, the Queens Museum of Art in New York City mounted the first retrospective gallery exhibition on the work of the LAPD, which traveled to the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena in 2016. "How to House 7,000 People in Skid Row" is the continuation of Woo and LAPD's 2017 project "The Back 9".
Henriëtte Brouwers is the Associate Director of the Los Angeles Poverty Department. Since 2000 she co-directs, produces and performs in many LAPD performances and she worked with John Malpede on the creation of RFK in EKY (2004) a community-based re-enactment of Robert F. Kennedy's 1968 trip to investigate poverty in Appalachia. Born in the Netherlands, Brouwers performs, directs and has taught throughout the US, the Netherlands and France. She was a member of Augusto Boal's Theatre of the Oppressed group and studied corporeal mime with Etiènne Décroux in Paris, France. In Amsterdam she founded movement theater ACTA and performed with Shusaku & Dormu Dance Theatre, Grif Theater, Nationaal Fonds, a.o. The Theatre Project in Baltimore, Highways in Santa Monica and UT Knoxville, TN presented her work in America. Henriëtte performed with Touchstone Theatre, PA and 7 Stages Theater in Atlanta and was the movement director for Blue Monk by Robert Earl Price, for the 1996 Olympic Arts Festival. She devised a series of performances based on the Mexican legend of La Malinche and La Llorona: The Weeping Woman. Brouwers is featured in Bill Viola's renowned 'The Passions' series.

Performing: to carry out, accomplish,
or fulfill (an action, task, or function)

Authorship: the state or fact of
being the writer of a book, article,
document, etc. or the producer of
a creative work

Collaboration: the action of working
with someone to produce or create
something

From the Curator, Saul Ostrow:

Performing Authorship: 31 Days in March assembles the work of eight collaborative teams to author works that are either hybrids, syntheses, or amalgams of the sensibilities of the teams' members. The idea for this project came from discussions with Ian Cofre, Director of PS122 Gallery, and artist Russell Maltz; all three of us are affiliated with Critical Practices Inc. It was determined that it would be fun to do something a little different- something old school, i.e. ad hoc. So rather than organize an exhibition around a topic-it was determined that CPI would organize a project based on a situation-a set of conditions, terms, and tasks. To this end, it was determined that it might be of interest to consider the gallery primarily as a site of production. This inversion has its roots in Robert Morris's Continuous Project Altered Daily, which 51 years ago was performed in March 1969 at the Castelli Warehouse. Morris had brought to the site a wide range of industrial materials, as well as a quantity of earth, which he would re-arrange daily. The project raised various questions about the nature of art as a product of variation and repetition. Morris at the end of each day photographed the indeterminate nature of each day's final form.

In the case of Performing Authorship: 31 Days in March, rather than focus on the temporality and variability of the artwork, I thought that what would be most interesting is an exhibition that addressed the terms and conditions of production; in particular the assumed individuality of authorship, as a product of the supposed isolation of the studio. Taking this as my premise, I decided to focus on the notion of collaboration-the action of working with someone to produce or create some entity which would be neither one person's nor an other's. Unlike Morris's project, the resulting work in this case would be unique and specific.

The next decision to be made was, who would be the Core Group of artists-and how many should there be? It was a given that these artists had to represent various aesthetics, intellectual and philosophical tendencies and practices, as well as being generationally diverse. Then there was the question of how much instruction were the participants to be given, since they in turn would be inviting collaborators. As such I turned to the guiding principles of all of Critical Practices Inc. (criticalpractices.org) programs: I would draft The Rules of the Game (available on request) for Performing Authorship: 31 Days in March.

CPI_Curricula was originally designed to encourage the production of collaborative projects by and facilitating the interactions between individual artists (and groups), as well as critics and other interested parties. After some deliberation, it was decided Performing Authorship: 31 Days in March would consist of 8 collaborative teams. The Core of Russell Maltz, Cris Gianakos, Michael Gitlin, Hannah Bigeleisen, Alicia Grullón, MK Guth, Ivelisse Jiménez, and Bradley Tucker represents 4 generations (1970s-2000s) of artists. Each week, two teams are scheduled to make and install their work. The collaborations need not be produced on site, but the work must be completed and installed in accord with the given schedule. All the projects will be presented the final weekend of the exhibition. Consequently, the two most important rules to come out of this process were: 1.) Each projects' material parameters and timeframe will be defined by the nature of PS122 Gallery resources and schedule. 2.) Nothing can be done physically to the space that the artist is not prepared to restore to its previous condition (this must be done immediately in that there are only 4 days between scheduled exhibitions).

With the intent of further demystifying the creative process by extending the dialog relative to art to public spaces, a PI_LTR On Authorship will be scheduled for the last weekend of the exhibition. All collaborators will be invited to participate with each inviting one additional participant.

PS122 Gallery is a dynamic, cooperatively run not-for-profit, alternative space in the East Village that provides opportunities and support services for emerging and underrecognized artists since 1979. The gallery reopened in January 2019 following a six-year hiatus while the historic City of New York-owned building was renovated and brought up to code, doubling the gallery in size and expanding programming capacity. In its 40th Anniversary Year, PS122 Gallery is working from an ethos of #YearZeroinForty, acting as a platform in order to reengage with its surrounding community, identify new communities, and discover how it can address their needs. Under the artistic direction of Gallery Director, Ian Cofre, the 2019-2020 yearlong season is dedicated to multigenerational legacies, deep time, and long-term explorations, processes and thinking.

PS122 Gallery is free and open to the public and inclusive of all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, LGBTQIA identity, and class. Conveniently located on the ground floor of the 122 Community Center in the East Village of Manhattan near several public transportation lines, PS122 Gallery provides wheelchair accessibility through the 122CC main entrance, as well as wheelchair accessible water fountains and all-gender restrooms.
