Weekly Spotlight: Mariano Weinstein, FF Alumn, now online at https://vimeo.com/318541116

Written, composed and performed by Mariano Weinstein, “Real Estate” was presented as a work-in-progress at The Kitchen, Manhattan in April, 2000. This 28-minute film of the artist’s solo presentation features high-speed multilingual acrobatics performed to a computer-generated instrumental and vocal soundtrack. Moving, speaking and singing with bright lights, bold sounds and sharp gestures, Weinstein alternates between the sensible and the nonsensical to underscore ambiguities and absurdities inherent to life. (Text by Sam Wagner, FF Intern, Autumn, 2020).

5. Jean Shin, Saya Woolfalk, FF Alumns, live online at Dieu Donné, Dec. 16

Inside the Workspace:
Jean Shin and Saya Woolfalk in Conversation

Wednesday, December 16th

A talk led by Writer & Curator, Re'al Christian

Dear Dieu Donné Community,

We are happy to announce our next public webinar, Inside the Workspace: Jean Shin and Saya Woolfalk in Conversation.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Dieu Donné Workspace Program, we are pleased to present the next installment of “Inside the Workspace,” a virtual conversation series featuring artists who have participated in the residency over the years. On December 16th, join Jean Shin (2004 Workspace Resident) and Saya Woolfalk (2012 Workspace Resident) in a conversation moderated by Re'al Christian (Writer & Curator) about the Workspace Residency Program at Dieu Donné.

Since its inception, the Workspace Program has attracted a collection of artists who resist easy categorization—thematically, stylistically, and representationally different, our residents' individual practices reveal the broad range of possibilities inherent in hand papermaking. Throughout this conversation series, we will look back on the history of the residency and its artists, while reflecting on the theme of collaboration in a socially distant world.
This online event will take place on Wednesday, December 16th from 2 PM—3 PM EST. This conversation will last approximately 40 minutes, followed by questions. To attend, register via this Eventbrite Portal, as space is limited:


This program is pay-as-you-wish, with a suggested minimum donation of $5.00. After registering, attendees will automatically receive a registration confirmation from Eventbrite and a direct email from Zoom with the webinar link and password to join the program.

Special thanks to the NYC COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund and the Windgate Foundation for funding this series.

We hope you can join us!

7. Linda Sibio, FF Alumn, at Olympia, Manhattan, thru Dec. 26 and more

Bezerk Productions is pleased to announce some exciting New York-based happenings for Executive Director Linda Sibio.

Two of Linda's paintings, Intestinal Tongues and Poetic Pond of Despair, are currently on view at Olympia in New York City as part of In the Weeds, curated by Georgia Diva McGovern. In thee Weeds is composed of work by 10 women-identifying artists. This group exhibition probes the complicated nature of green to highlight the multifaceted meaning of this color in the technological era and Anthropocene.

In the Weeds is the inaugural exhibition at Olympia's new gallery space in New York’s Lower East Side at 41 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002. The show will be open through December 26, 2020 on Thursdays through Sundays from 11am-6pm, by appointment only. You can book an appointment through Olympia's website. For inquiries, email arossi@olympairt.org.

Along with two paintings by Linda Sibio, In the Weeds also includes two sculptural garments by Joshua Tree based artist Elena Yu. Elena is an artist, clothing designer, educator and arts organizer. Linda and Elena have been friends and collaborators since 2017, when they met through Elena's work with Andrea Zittel and High Desert Test Sites. In 2019, Elena assisted Linda in preparing for her exhibition Economics of Suffering at Andrew Edlin Gallery, making costumes, assisting with installation, and appearing in the opening night performance Emotional States of Zero. In 2020, Elena joined the board of Bezerk Productions and the Cracked Eggs team as Workshop Assistant. To see more of Elena's artwork, visit her website.

Linda and Elena are excited to represent Joshua Tree in New York City!

Additionally, we'd love for you to check out a newly released online interview with Linda by Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful Espejo, Founding Director of Bronx-based organization The Interior Beauty Salon. Nicolás first encountered Linda's work in 2019 when he attended her performance at Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York City. In the interview they discuss Linda's groundbreaking use of the "schizophrenic thinking" model in both her art and teaching practices, as well as her unique journey with mental health, art, and community.

"My tool kit is a bright pink bag with compartments for all emotions including anger, sadness, happiness and fear. In this bag there are no “negative” emotions, just different kinds. It is important to balance these emotions in my body, mind, physical body, perceptions and spirituality. I reach for my personal archetypes so that all of me is involved in this journey of deconstructing the mind and reinventing a language I can fully understand."

—Linda Sibio in conversation with Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful Espejo

10. Debra Pearlman, FF Alumn, at ARTspace, Manhattan, thru Feb. 21 2021

99 Madison Avenue, 8 floor
New York, NY 10016
T: (212) 271-0664
E: info@projectartspace.com

New York City: Project: ARTspace and ODETTA present “A Kind of Language,” a solo exhibition of chromogenic and archival pigment prints by Debra Pearlman. Pearlman’s photographs of children capture unguarded moments of children at play. Often evoking iconic works of art, the images suggest cultural roots of emotional expression. In such moments of experiencing children's emotional lives, Pearlman reveals unseen expressions of internal worlds. She depicts individuals not in portraits but as evocations of our shared experiences. As critic Irving Sandler noted, "It is a world I have not seen,” adding that Pearlman’s approach adds "figuration and abstraction to these works. It is urban history.”

December 7 - February 19, 2021. The gallery is open by appointment ONLY, Monday – Friday, 11am–5pm. Please complete this form to make your reservation: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSffgmF5gMVzjmX8H4ejI0CBa97lfG6tAD7oVCFXQ33C-oGs_w/viewform

Opens Saturday December 5th 12-6pm

Meredith Rosen Gallery is pleased to present Escapism, a group exhibition of nineteen artists. The show opens on Friday, December 5 and remains on view through January 30.

“This is what I mean when I say I would like to swim against the stream of time: I would like to erase the consequences of certain events and restore an initial condition. But every moment of my life brings with it an accumulation of new facts, and each of these new facts bring with it consequences; so the more I seek to return to the zero moment from which I set out, the further I move away from it.” - Italo Calvino, If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler

Ely Center of Contemporary Art
51 Trumbull Street, New Haven, CT 06510
www.elycenter.org : https://elycenter.org/not-so-short-fest

Conceived, compiled, and curated by Jean Marie Casbarian
Produced by Jean Marie Casbarian and Taylore C. Wilson

PR and Gallery Contact: Jeanne Criscola, jcriscola@elycenter.org

The (NotSo) Short Fest is a 5-hour collection of video shorts created by Transart Institute’s MFA students, faculty, and advisors from around the globe. Conceived, compiled, and curated by Jean Marie Casbarian (faculty + advisor), the festival celebrates the creative minds of these international artists over the span of 16 years since the inception of this unique, international low-residency MFA and PHD program.

The 77 video shorts by 72 artists make up the festival which runs from December 7 to February 21, broken into hourly chapters, with each segment screening every twelve days both at the Ely Center in real time (while abiding by CDC and Connecticut guidelines) as well as being screened sequentially on elycenter.org.

The Chapters will build upon each other cumulatively building into the full five hours by mid-February. During the final seventeen days, all five hours will screen as a complete collective marathon. During the finale, participants are encouraged to propose and hold a variety of individual artist talks, panel discussions and/or studio visits.

The Ely Center of Contemporary Art is open to the public with limited hours and if you're in the New Haven area, please contact us and we'll make arrangements for you to physically attend.

Jair Tapia | Ciudad Juarez Chihuahua, Mexico
Espacios en Vigilia, 2019

Aurora Del Rio / SpiegelimSpiegel Kollektiv | Italy/Germany
Offerta / Opera Vana, 2019
The concept originates from two iconological images described by Cesare Ripa in his book Nova Iconologia: “Offerta” (offer) and "Opera Vana” (useless endeavor). The traditional string-game is envisioned as a generator of symbolic figures, pointing at the ambivalence of human relationship to nature. On the one hand the Offer, the symbolic approach, suggest the return to the idea of nature as a powerful and dangerous entity, to be respected and towards which an offer is required. On the other end the useless endeavor is what mankind accomplishes through an endless process of exploiting nature until the extremes consequences. Offerta/Opera Vana is ultimately a ritual which aims at contemplating the impossibility of the ambivalence we inhabit.

Sabri Idrus | Subang Jaya, Malaysia
Unknotting, 2016

Freya Olafson | Winnipeg, Canada
Disembodied Beings, 2019
Disembodied Beings considers how virtual reality technology destabilizes meaning(s) of the corporeal body. The work engages with content from the Internet: open source motion capture libraries, ready-made 3D models of humans, and at home tests of motion capture software and models. These visuals conflate with found Youtube monologues that recount out of body and astral projection experiences. Disembodied People is part of Olafson a new series called MÆ-Motion Aftereffect which is a series of works concerned with the impact of emerging consumer technologies associated with AR-Augmented Reality, VR-Virtual Reality, MR-Mixed Reality, XR-Extended Reality and 360° video.

Safe-keeping (custodia), 2014
Emerging from a residency at the Museo Laboratorio della Mente, Rome, this four-channel video (Breathing; Stifling; Scratching; Over and Over) investigates the affective potential of abandoned fagotti (parcels) containing the possessions belonging to former patients of a closed psychiatric hospital. Oscillating between non-representational and representational modes of ‘knowing’, and produced through embodied enactments, the work aims to provide a credible critique of the now discredited Italian psychiatric system. I am showing the four videos sequentially for the Ely Center screening, but they are usually looped and screened on monitors simultaneously in a large darkened space.

Proprioception (Body Awareness), 2017
An assemblage of historic imagery, 70’s experimental video practices, and modern-day chaotic audio procedures. John Heartfield was a pioneer using collage and photomontage as a means to fight militarism and fascism in Europe. The work juxtaposes two camera streams pointing to Heartfield’s imagery and to crosshairs from an analog videoscope, using video processing equipment built in the 1970’s—a technology that was made to facilitate alternative, experimental and open practices. The processing in turn is controlled by audio from a modern-day synthesizer using chaotic procedures. Special thanks to Signal Culture for access to their equipment.

Zeerak Ahmed | Pakistan/USA

In this work I map out sonic spaces that reside within the body. Channeling notes from the base, chest, throat, nose and head, I draw out my selves.

STRIDING BODIES: Procession in Performance Art is a survey program that focuses on performance art as a processional (march or parade) experience. The international program counts with the participation of artists selected from an open call who will present and discuss their experience in the execution of the works.

The program is the product of earlier incursions of Canonge in his CARAVAN series that started in 2017. This time as curator, Canonge has gathered a sample of works that will be presented to audiences for the first time in video documentation format. Participating artists will introduce their works and talk about their experiences with attending audiences.
Selected artists:
Nicolas Aca (Philippines), Jana Astanov (Poland-United States), Vital Schraenen and Jo Zanders (Belgium), Motoko Ohinata (Japan), Andres Valenzuela (Chile), Ariadna Pastorini (Argentina), Clyde Lepage (Belgium), Sean Smuda (United States), Riccardo Matlakas (Italy-United Kingdom), Dagmar Glausnitzer-Smith (Germany), Ras Sankara Agboka (Togo), Gilivanka Kedzior (France), Dimple B.

Partial monies go to aligned charities. Feel free to share . . (maybe you need some wall art in the office? ;)
