2. Dread Scott, FF Alumn, at Playwrights Horizons, Manhattan, opening April 12

On April 12 we will unveil the third installation in our free Public Art Series: Dread Scott’s White People Can’t Be Trusted with Power.
Two of Dread’s works will be on display: One work engages passersby in considering what a world unburdened from America’s imperialism and often-destructive exceptionalism—a world without America itself—might look like. The other piece, a new text-based work making its debut at Playwrights, sparks questions about why white supremacist power structures are perceived as societal givens; what other forms power might take; and who can be trusted with it.

4. Fang-Yu Liu, Arantxa Araujo, Jaguar Mary X, FF Alumns, live online April 18 and 25

On April 18th and 25th, 2021, the Hive Art Community presents our second edition of the online performance series "Re:Vive!", curated by Fang-Yu Liu and Kathie Halfin. Inspired by the Women's History Month we are proud to invite eight female-identified and queer artists: Arantxa Araujo, Erica Gressman, Gaby Bila Gunther, Jaguar Mary X, Lariel Joy, Laura Hyunjhee Kim, Murta Azul, Romina Gonzales. Please register here:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/revive-tickets-148455362987

This series “Re: Vive!” invites artists to incite a range of possible responses. We ask questions about the conditions of response-ability that include specific experiences, practices, histories and re-workings that bond us together. As female-identified and queer artists, thinkers and cultural producers we cultivate moments of growing consciousness while paying attention to the body. We believe that listening to our bodies initiates passages to rework im/possibilities and evoke response-abilities to be able to live with differences that initiate meaningful changes.

The Hive Art Community is an art space and a performance art platform found in 2019. In 2020 The Hive Art Community launched an online performance art series to promote and support performance artists during times of pandemic. This month, we launch the Live Art Support Fund here:
https://www.gofundme.com/f/live-art-support-fund?utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=customer

to further offer financial support to the artists and curators. We wish to compensate the artists for their labor, especially during these trying times. We would be grateful for your donation of any amount. Your contribution will support performance artists and ensure future events at The Hive Art Community.

14. Barbara Rosenthal, FF Alumn, Zoom Studio Visit, Apr. 18
Sunday at 2PM

Local Knowledge: A Literary and Art Journal NY and LA, hosted by Sanjay Agnihotri and Jeff Wright, with artist Barbara Rosenthal, and poets Chris Kraus and Peter Valente

Zoom Link April 18:
https://www.facebook.com/localknowledgemag

A native New Yorker, Barbara Rosenthal is a prolific, idiosyncratic, Media and Performance artist and writer, referred to as "Media Poet" by The Village Voice and elsewhere since the 1980s, and by Berlin Art Link in 2013 as “ever-evolving Old Master of New Media." Her works are in the collections of MoMA, The Whitney, The Tate, Berlin Kunstbibliotek and Artpool Budapest. On April 11, Local Knowledge will host her overview of the Surreal-to-Conceptual Photoworks Project, focusing on works from the suites in current exhibitions and publications including Denise Bibro Fine Art, LiveMag!, Xanadu Press, Rogue Scholars Press and Ugly Duckling Presse.
Below are excerpts from Barbara Rosenthal's notes for the April 18th Zoom:
"I've only begun to understand these works as on a continuum within a single Project, but it does fall into two categories, the first becoming fodder for the second."
PART ONE of the project: SURREAL PHOTOS
35mm full-frame analog photography
"Surreal Photos begin when I am in a kind of trance-state with my 35mm Olympus OM-1 analog cameras and lenses. When an image I see through the lense hits me in some psychological place, I snap it. I've been doing this since I bought the first of those cameras in 1973, and the categories they have fallen into read like nightmarish fairy tales: Trapped Figures, Tiny Houses, Renegage Horses, Aberrant Trees, etc. Current publications are "Time on the Move," the book of my photos with Barry Wallenstein's title and poetry published by Xanadu Press, and the back cover of Jeff Wright's new LiveMag!-17."
PART TWO of the project: SURREAL-to-CONCEPTUAL PHOTOWORKS
35mm full-frame analog photography, re-formed
"I had been producing photographs in the Surreal Photos categories from 1973, when by the mid-90's, embarking on a decade and a half of serious psychiatric treatment, I began experimenting with applying certain formalist principles to some of the shots, and by xxx the NY to Chatanooga transplant, the recently deceased inimical Bob Dombrowski, had an idea about why I distorted my photographs, which he said were indicative of distorted vision in the first place. He proposed I write an essay for the daily "Chatanoogan" under his title, Barbara Rosenthal: The Artist Who Works With Instability.
PART THREE of the project: SURREAL-to-CONCEPTUAL PHOTO-WORK VIDEO MORPHS
A 10-min video loop, with 3 iterations of audio (Charlie Morrow - Helsinki; Matthew Lee Knowles - London; Claudio Scardino - Florence), the Surreal Photos morph into and out of their Conceptual Distortions.

PART FOUR of the project: SURREAL-to-CONCEPTUAL MEDIATED PERFORMANCE
Existential Ultraviolet Photo-chase, live performances with audio, interacting with projected imagery of my bizzarre, distorted landscape photos. Each time this piece is performed (London; Helsinki; New York) the documentation video of the prior performance becomes the projection, so that several images of Barbara Rosenthal appear with her live action, thus melding her live form and her image in ways the audience can not tell apart. The first iteration had been performed at Waterloo Action Centre, London, arranged by Tom Estes.
"My face is covered in these performances, so what I have to go on, in terms of space and direction is the changing light from the projector."
Documentary photo and textual information about the Helsinki 2019 performance has now been published by Ugly Duckling Presse, in "Emergency Index 9 (2020)" available at:
