10. Agnes Denes, FF Alumn, at The Tate, London, and more

The pioneering artist Agnes Denes, who planted a wheat field against the backdrop of New York’s Twin Towers in 1982, one of her many landmark works of art around the globe, has raised a flag, “The Future is Fragile, Handle with Care," above the roof of Tate Britain as a cultural call to action in response to the dual crisis of COVID-19 and climate change. The installation marks the conclusion of Healing Arts London and the launch of The Future is Unwritten Artists Response Fund to support artist-led projects contributing to improved mental, social and environmental health in the wake of the pandemic.

Leading UN environmental agencies have described the virus as nature’s first "warning shot" to civilizations playing with fire, a stark reminder of the need for cooperation across borders, sectors, and generations. Denes's flag calls out for the urgency of a global response not only to climate change (as she has been doing through artworks created during the past fifty years) and but also to its connection to COVID 19. It symbolizes the need for a collective response to these crises and how that can be transformed into a paradigm shift with all sectors of society contributing to a new vision of the world, acting creatively in solidarity for the common good. According to the artist, "Global dialogue and action are more crucial now than ever.” The flag will remain on the masthead above Tate Britain until XXXXX.

Tate Representative comments, “The raising of Agnes Denes's flag above one of the UK’s most iconic museums represents the launch of Healing Arts 2021 global campaign.Healing Arts London was produced by CULTURUNNERS as part of the World Health Organization's Solidarity Series of Events. It brought together a cultural coalition of partners including University College London, Community Jameel, The Art Newspaper, WHO Foundation, Hospital Rooms, Vivobarefoot, and the National Centre for Creative Health to explore the role of art in community healing and improved mental wellbeing in the context of COVID 19.

About The Future is Unwritten Healing Arts Initiative

The Future is Unwritten facilitates urgent cooperation between the international arts sector and United Nations Agencies in order to accelerate implementation of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. It was launched by CULTURUNNERS in partnership with the World Council of Peoples for the United Nations, as part of the UN’s 75th Anniversary Program, UN75. The Future is Unwritten established the Healing Arts initiative in November 2020 under the auspices of the WHO Organization Arts & Health Program and in partnership with the WHO Foundation and Christie’s.

14. Annie Sprinkle & Elizabeth Stephens, FF Alumns, Spring news

A Guggenheim Fellowship
Assuming the Ecosexual Position—New book.
Road trip book tour
New Website

Spring has sprung, and we, your playful, hardworking ecosexuals are harvesting the fruits of our labors. Let’s start with how Beth wrote a highly competitive Guggenheim Fellowship grant in the category of filmmaking-- and got it! It brings good attention to our work, and will help us get other grants. We will use the grant to produce the third in our trilogy of environmental documentaries made with an ecosexual gaze, Playing with Fire.

The silver lining of the COVID quarantine for us was that we could finish the book we had been working on for five years. Assuming the Ecosexual Position—the Earth as Lover is available for presale at our wonderful publisher’s website, University of Minnesota Press, or just ask a bookstore near you to order it. We are happy to mail you a signed and decorated bookplate sticker. Email us your U.S. address and we’ll mail it out. (Anniesprinkle@me.com)

https://www.upress.umn.edu/book-division/books/assuming-the-ecosexual-position

A book tour is in the works. This August/September we plan to go on a road trip in our camper-van crisscrossing the U.S.A. If anyone is interested in producing an event with us, we would love to schedule it. (Event details to be announced).

We have a beautiful new website sprinklestephens.org which features our collaborative work. Check it out. It will also be a hub for our new non-profit, E.A.R.T.H. Lab S.F. (Environmental Art, Research, Theory and Happenings, San Francisco. The Center will carry on our mission to produce art projects about serious environmental issues that also aim to make environmental art and activism more sexy, fun, and diverse.

Recent highlights--Annie was awarded the Tom of Finland Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Beth turned 60. We got both our vaccines and are feeling great!

15. Ralph Lewis & Peculiar Works Project, FF Alumns, live online May 7
Ralph Lewis of Peculiar Works Project invites all FFers to join us at 6pm on Friday, May 7, 2021 for our entry in this year's Jane's Walk, presented by the Municipal Art Society. We'll be Zooming in LIVE from the Penn Station Powerhouse, 13th Street Theater, 14-16 Fifth Avenue, Essex St. Market, Mulberry Community Center, and Elizabeth St. Garden with an important call to save NYC.
Janes Calling is a 30-minute, virtual performance by six diverse actresses, all channeling the legendary activist, Jane Jacobs. Join our Janes online for this live video conference, as they weave together speeches given by Ms. Jacobs over her extensive career (1957-2000). They’ll be calling in from six unique locations—NYC buildings and properties that are, at this moment, in danger of destruction—to share stories about the city we love. These unique backgrounds highlight Ms. Jacobs’ evolving ideas on big development, while drawing attention to the urgent need for historic preservation.
For FREE tickets "Sign Up" at: https://www.mas.org/events/janes-calling/

FOLLA
Recent Color Crowd paintings 2020-2021

Rizzuto Gallery
Palermo, Italy
8 May – 19 June, 2021

Filling images and shapes into a container has been one of my recurring motifs since ever. Sometimes it’s spots and dots, lines and patterns, other times it’s faces and bodies. Every time different thoughts and emotions are triggered. I started large Black on White Crowd paintings filled with images of all kinds in 1996 as a counterpart to the abstractions of the Rag Rug group. After a while it became natural to add other colors. The bigger paintings in this show are divided by one or two caesurae, a kind of seam at which the forms on either side don’t match. There’s also a display of works on paper 1980-2017 tracing the kind of images that appear in the Crowd works. Lucio Pozzi
