2. Olivia Beens, Krzysztof Wodiczko, FF Alumns, at FusionArts Museum, NY, Opening TONITE, 7-10 pm

FusionArts Museum presents What a Relief, a group show exploring the art of relief in fusion art. Thursday, June 16 through Thursday, September 1, 2005 in the main gallery. Sewbirds, a solo fusion art installation by artist Maggie Ens will be on exhibit Wednesday, June 1 through Sunday, July 31, 2005 in gallery B.

Opening reception for both exhibits on Thursday, June 16, 2005, 7 - 10 PM

What a Relief is a new group exhibit at FusionArts Museum in which multidisciplinary (aka fusion) artists explore the role of relief in fusion art. Fusion art is an art form that fuses the artistic disciplines as opposed to merely mixing artistic media. Fusion is art that combines painting, sculpture, sculptural found objects, electric light, movement, text and video projection. The art on exhibit in What a Relief isn’t content to be restrained by and contained within the four sides of a canvas. It protrudes out of itself and breaks free in the mind’s eye of the viewer. It is proof that the contemporary art world isn’t all flat.

What a Relief will be on exhibit at FusionArts Museum in gallery A from Thursday, June 16 through Thursday, September 1, 2005. Featured artists are Beth Bailis, Olivia Beens, Carl Caivano, Thom Corn, Ismael Cosme, Jocelyn Fiset, Nicola Frangione, Liu Guangyun, Rene Hinds, Dara Holtzman, Hoop (in collaboration with Sandra Swieder), Julius Klein, Ivan Kustura, Raphael Rosario-Laguna, Joe Maynard, Phil Rostek, Harro Schmidt, Shalom, Spy, Roy Urban, Helga Von Eichen, Tomasz Wendland, Krzysztof Zarebski and Antony Zito.

Sewbirds, a solo fusion art installation by artist Maggie Ens will be on exhibit Wednesday, June 1 through Sunday, July 31, 2005 in gallery B.

FusionArts Museum is the only contemporary art space in New York City dedicated to showing fusion art exclusively.

These exhibitions were made possible in part through the generosity of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYSCA) and were sponsored by Converging Arts Media Organization, a not-for-profit 501(c)3 arts organization that brings innovative art and arts related events to the Lower East Side of New York City. 57 Stanton Street New York, NY 10002 p: (212) 995-5290 ƒ: (212) 388-0276 •

4. Leon Golub, Komar & Melamid, Robert Longo, Dominic McGill, Nancy Spero, at Esso Gallery and Lombard-Fried Fine Arts, reception June 22, 6-8 pm

The exhibition will be on view to July 30 at Esso Gallery and Lombard-Fried Fine Arts, 531 West 26th street, 2nd floor. The artist's reception will be on June 22, 2005, 6-8 PM.

ATOMICA: Making the Invisible Visible

"They made a desert, and they called it peace."
– Tacitus, 37 AD

“What the world would best remember of 1945 was the deadly mushroom clouds over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Here were the force, the threat, the promise of the future…In such a world who dared to be optimistic?”
The Bomb and the Man, Time, 21 Dec. 1945

Esso Gallery and Lombard-Freid Fine Arts are pleased to present a collaborative group show entitled ATOMICA: Making the Invisible Visible, based on a project by curator Ombretta Agro' Andruff.

On July 25, 1945 the President of the United States of America, Harry S. Truman ordered the atomic bomb dropped on Japan. On August 6th, 1945 the rest of the world was awakened to the specter of the nuclear apocalypse: a new and unimaginable force had been unleashed and the threat that all life could come to a sudden and horrific end became a reality.

August 6th, 2005 marks the sixtieth anniversary of the bombings and in conjunction with a series of commemorative events in New York City, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, ATOMICA: Making the Invisible Visible pays homage to the power of art and its continuing relevance to engage the public in a dialogue about war and peace.

ATOMICA brings together a group of international artists of different backgrounds and generations in an interactive dialog on the subject of nuclear threat which is as much of a presence today as it was sixty years ago. This exhibition features artists for whom the nuclear narrative has provided inspiration for their entire artistic production in addition to other emerging and established artists who under the current political climate have found a voice and mechanism to express their discontent. From didactic to sublime, this exhibition is an awareness platform from where the audience can, in response to a past catastrophic event, understand and react to a present and future danger.

Participating artists include: Shiva Ahmadi, Jesse Bransford, Chris Burden, Davide Cantoni, Sarah Ciraci', Julian Dashper, Heide Fasnacht, Tony Feher, Carlos Garaicoa, Joy Garnett, Leon Golub, Ingo Gunther, Mark Handelmann, Keith Haring, Alfredo Jaar, Marguerite Kahrl, Peter Kennard, Komar + Melamid, Seitaro Kuroda + Hironobu Yamabe, Molly Larkey, Cristobal Lehyt, Ellen K. Levy, Robert Longo, Dominic McGill, Curtis Mitchell, Nobuho Nagasawa, Taras Polataiko, Robert Polidori, Michael Rakowitz, Lisi Raskin, Wilhelm Sasnal, Francesco Simeti, Nancy Spero, Hiroshi Sunairi and John Timberlake.

In conjunction with the ATOMICA exhibition a continuous program of film and video screenings will feature rarely seen documentaries and films by: Stefano Cagol, Oleg Chorny and Gena Khmaruck, Andreas Samland, Motohashi Seiichi, Stephen Sotor and Trace Gaynor, Mark Waller, Kathleen Sullivan, Robert Richter, Stan Warnow,and Muratbek Jumaliev & Gulnara Kasmalieva.

Thursday June 16 Nicolas Collins
returns to his old hometown for the premiere presentation of rev. 3.0 of his "Trombone-Propelled Electronics" (the original having been run over by a taxi at Schipol Airport, while its replacement chose to retire Garboishly.) Live signal processing with a telltale whiff of the old Victrola. Special guest musician Kato Hideki.

Friday June 17 mpld
prepared and processed slide projectors. The photoacoustic continuum of mpld's projection slowly flows into the performance space carrying fragments from unidentified places and times. Fades and cuts play with memory's subjective persistence, as light and darkness keep carving out each one from the other. Presented in association with Phonomena.

Saturday June 18 Marina Rosenfeld
Combining her interests in graphic notation, unconventional instrumental techniques, live musical performance and video, Marina Rosenfeld's new project will generate a composition from an animated video projection-as-score. Rosenfeld's previous work has included large-scale, multi-player performance works she calls orchestras--'the emotional orchestra', 'the sheer frost orchestra'-- and video projections fabricated from original silent Super-8 footage.

Sunday June 19 David Behrman
will perform two quiet multi-channel pieces, "Acoustica," for small wind and stringed instruments, and "View Finder," a music/video sound installation here presented in a solo performance version. Both pieces have elements going back to the 20th century and both make use of recent digital arts techniques.

Wednesday June 22 Angie Eng & David Weinstein
Memobile, a video performance inspired by nomadic movement. Artists housed in a Mondrianesque shelter play audio samples and 3 channel video in real-time using MAX/MSP/Jitter. David Weinstein (musician) and Angie Eng (director/ video) weave sound and moving image into poetic journeys, emotional spaces, and surreal memories.

Thursday June 23 David Linton
will present2 new works: solo audio visual work and a collaborative realtime improvisational AV duet with video artist Chiaki Watanabe."Stroboscopy: GODBOX 101" is a solo AV performance investigating the perceptual effects triggered by the manipulation of the barest sonic and visual elements - across the stereo audio visual field in realtime: A pair of sine tone generators coupled with a pair of stroboscopic lamps will be employed to demonstrate and perhaps unlock some of the secrets encoded in the residual bicameral structure of human physiology as it pertains to audio visual perception and resulting states of consciousness.

Friday June 24 Julia Heyward
will be showingthe interactive version of "Miracles in Reverse" which is part 1 of a triptych entitled "Nothing Random Access Memory." All three parts of the triptych deal with trauma and memory....personal/local as well collective/global. With guest performer
and collaborator Ken Butler.

Saturday June 25 koosil-ja
A dance and mixedmedia work, Dance Without Body, which is a study of the chapter, "Body Without Organs" from the book "MillePlateaux" by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari. Thework incorporates video created as a tool to producedance while abstracting the performer from significancesand subjectifications. Geoff Matters will perform thelive video and sound score using a customized softwareenvironment. This process and presentation was funded by ExperimentalTelevision Center's Presentation Funds program, Meet The Composer, and TheJerome Foundation. Experimental Television Center's Presentation Funds program is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts and mediaThe Foundation.

Sunday June 26 Aki Onda,
 a composer and photographer, makes autobiographical works which imprints his personal memories. "Something which wasn't Said" is an audio-visual piece, which he calls Cinemage (image for cinema, or homage for cinema). It's composed of slide projection of still photo images and improvised music. What we experience in his work is immersing ourselves in a kinematic state which transcends both reality and imagination mutually. Sensual and hypnotic, words are not necessary. On this occasion, Alan Licht and Loren Conners play guitar along with Aki Onda's visual images.

Cinders Gallery Presents:
The Porch Show
A group exhibition featuring Jo Dery, Aron Wahl, Kim Schifino, Chris Duncan, Diane Barcelowsky, Kyle Field, Erika Somogyi, Harrison Haynes, Megan Whitmarsh, George Ferrandi, David McQueen, Kelie Bowman, Alan Calpe, Julia Elsas, Hanna Fushihara, Steven Harrington and Sto.
Opening Reception: Friday June 17th 2005 7pm-11pm
Runs till July 24th 2005
Over the long course of this past NY winter, we continually caught ourselves daydreaming about the lost summer filled with hanging out on porches, having barbeques, riding bikes, singing songs and connecting with each other outdoors. With the real summer just around the corner, we are bursting at the seams with excitement and would like to offer the world:The Porch Show, a group installation consisting of 17 artists whose work vary from drawing, sculpture, video, painting and performance. The American front porch sets the stage for this exhibition which aims to resurrect and embrace the ideals of community and use a seemingly forgotten piece of American architecture as its meeting place. The porch's history, as an outdoor living room where the public and private could merge and where neighbors could tell stories, sing songs, and connect with one another, has been in steady decline since World War 2. The advent of air-conditioning, automobiles, and television provided people with more reasons to stay inside and in effect replaced the importance of community and being outdoors with a more secluded, individualistic lifestyle. Cinders Gallery invites you to The Porch show to experience our art community coming together this summer. In addition to the opening reception, there will be events throughout the duration of the show including acoustic music performances, barbeques, bike rides, and more! Check the website for updates.
See you on the porch!
Also on Friday to coincide with the porch show across the street The City Reliquary will be hosting a BBQ cookoff between Paul Lukas and the City Reliquary Strategic Consultant and Resident Chef, David "Scout" McQueen. Come out to see the new collection of meat-related cookbooks by Paul and reap the benefits of two incredible chefs.

10. Barbara Hammer, FF Alumn, at Maya Stendhal Galler, opening June 23

Barbara Hammer, FF, in "Vital Signs" summer group show at Maya Stendhal Gallery
Opening night 6-8 Thursday, June 23, 6-8 pm
Maya Stendhal Gallery
545 W 20th Street , Second Floor
Maya Stendhal Gallery is proud to present Vital Signs: Summer 2005 Group Show, a multimedia exhibition to take place from 2 June – 30 July 2005. In a climate of political malapropism, in which cinematic tropes are deployed as though they were news, Vital Signs aims to investigate the language of visual culture by deconstructing dominant codes and unveiling unexpected grammars. The artists included in the exhibition are Michael Snow, Jeff Scher, Peter Rose, Takahiko Iimura, Barbara Hammer, Matthias Groebel, Seymour Chwast, and Nisi Jacobs.

If the language of Hollywood cinema has become ossified—too archetypal, employing codified juxtapositions for simplistic psychological effect—then it remains for artists to interrogate, subvert, or explode the way we receive and parse the images we live in. Language is a continual process of renovation: the progress of obsolescence and innovation can be both agonizing and imperceptible. The effects of cinema on cognition have been documented: it now becomes important to trace the marks of cinematic consciousness on fixed-image artmaking. How might this illuminate the way we understand political and media atrophies?


11. Joan Jonas, FF Alumn, at Jeu de Paume, Paris, thru August 28

Le Plateau – Frac Ile-de-France and Jeu de Paume – Site Sully are pleased to present the first Parisian exhibition of work by Joan Jonas. From 8 June to 28 August 2005.

A producer of films and videos, a performer who also makes sculptures and drawings, Joan Jonas is one of the most important women artists in the United States. Her work features in many of the world’s most prestigious museums, including MoMA (NYC) and the Stedelijk Museum ( Amsterdam).

Given in galleries, theatres and lofts, inside and outdoors, her performances were quick to make use of film and then video technology in order to give an illusion of spatial depth and to play on the notions of live and recorded action, and thus to challenge viewers’ perceptions.

Joan Jonas is a pioneer who combines sound, movement and images in order to produce protean, experimental objects.

At the Jeu de Paume – Site Sully, a selection of emblematic works, from her first videos of the late 1960s to her latest installations, retraces Joan Jonas’s very singular career.

These works also give an idea of the themes running through the artist’s production over those thirty-five years, such as: the place of the body and the relation to urban or rural landscapes (Wind, 1968; Song Delay, 1973), disguise and the question of identity (Organic Honey, 1972-94), the close ties between myth and reality (Organic Honey), and the influence of theatre, whether the Japanese Kabuki and Bunraku (Song Delay and Organic Honey) or the French.

At Le Plateau, Joan Jonas is presenting a historic work, the installation Mirage, as well as a series of her small theatres.

In the same time, she is questioning her own career by engaging in a dialogue with some of the young artists she has met in schools around the world: Narda Fabiola Alvarado ( Bolivia), Sung Hwan Kim (Corea), David Maljkovic ( Croatia), Seth Price ( United States) and Sebastian Diaz Morales ( Argentina) in the experimental space.

Described recently by Roberta Smith in The New York Times as “the most important artist of the second half of the 20th century,” Joan Jonas sees this exhibition as a way of confronting the question of artistic inheritance and transmission.

Parallel to these two major exhibitions, the Yvon Lambert gallery in Paris (“Le Studio” space) is showing recent works by Jonas from 28 May to 30 July.

14. Yuliya Lanina, FF Member, at Figureworks, Brooklyn, opening June 24

JUNE 24 - JULY 31, 2005 Reception, June 24th, 6-9PM at FIGUREWORKS 168 North 6th Street (1 block south from Bedford Avenue "L" train, between Bedford Ave./ Driggs Ave.) Williamsburg , Brooklyn, NY 11211 718-486-7021
Friday, Saturday, Sunday?? 1-6 PM or by appointment

Yuliya Lanina’s work represents female transformation. She achieves this direction on many levels. First is through concept: transforming an objectified or oppressed victim into a powerful, creative seer. Secondly by her choice of media: taking female mannequins once used to sport the latest fashions and giving them unique personalities through painted expressions. These torsos are painted to form faces in various states of emotion, including amazement, anger, contentment and peace. Thirdly, by transforming the viewer?s expectations: working colorfully and whimsically to entice then relaying a message that allows one to see femininity in a direct, engaging way.

Lanina has coupled these mannequin pieces with a series of small vaginal collages. Playful, pink squares of femininity hold charm and amusement yet become complex with added objects.?

Yuliya Lanina was born in Moscow, Russia. Upon completing her degree in music she emigrated to the United States at the age of sixteen. Her passion for painting grew and she achieved her BFA in 1997 from Purchase College of Art and Design. Since graduation, she has worked from her studio in Williamsburg and is having her second exhibition with Figureworks.


15. Vito Acconci, Dara Birnbaum, Agnes Denes, Leon Golub, Les Levine, Sol Lewitt, Dominic McGill, Matt Mullican, Richard Nonas, Nancy Spero, Javier Tellez, Lawrence Weiner, Raul Zamudio, FF Alumns, at Venice Biennale, thru Nov. 6

Co-curating, Poles Apart, Poles Together Poles Apart / Poles Together
An outdoor installation on the Grand Canal for the 51st Venice Biennale
A project of  the International Artists' Museum and White Box
thru November 6th, 2005

The Venice Biennale has always reflected the artist's individuality in unison not only with the world of art but with the world at large. Poles Apart / Poles Together originates from an idea the Venetian poet, John Gian the Israeli curator Doron Polak and the Spanish-born, New York-based curator Juan Puntes have derived from the Biennale¹s central focus: that while creativity and the artist are individual, art itself is communal and unifying. With this in mind, Poles Apart / Poles Together brings a large group of individual artists' works together in a communal effort by using a local theme that carries international resonance. One hundred and one international artists have created works mounted on mooring poles around the city's canals, one of Venice's memorable landscapes. They have created environments that generate a combination of outdoor intimacy and surprise. By connecting the conventional to the creative, the artists' works effectively demonstrate how the traditional and commonplace can lend themselves to innovative art-making approaches.

In Venice, the city of canals, whose access to the world¹s waterways has always made it look beyond its horizons, this installation will highlight the city's cosmopolitan character. There could not be a more appropriate addition to the Biennale than the temporary embellishment of the Gran Canale now lined with international public art works that reflect the diversity of levels in esthetic sensations from around the world. Poles Apart / Poles Together, like the lagoon itself, will reach out across peoples and space and, beyond parochialism, all visitors will leave Venice with a memorable visual experience.

19. Willoughby Sharp, FF Alumn, now at Chelsea Space, London

Dear Friends,
We are pleased to announce the June 10th opening of an exhibition at Chelsea Space in London featuring Avalanche magazine.

The last and only other exhibition devoted to Avalanche was curated by Willoughby Sharp in 1973. It was titled AVALANCHE DIE ENTWICKLUNG EINER AVANTGARDE-ZEITSCHRIFT (Avalanche: The Development of an Avant-Garde Periodical) and originated at the Cologne Kunstverein, March 23 to April 23. It traveled to the Hanover Kunstverein, May 27 ­ July 22; the Munster Kunstverein, Fall 1973; and the Frankfurt Kunstverein, Fall 1973.

October 2005 marks the 35th Anniversary of the publication of the first
issue of Avalanche with Joseph Beuys on the cover. A celebration will take
place in New York. The date and time will be announced. We look forward to
seeing you there. With Best Wishes,
Willoughby Sharp & Pamela Smith
