2. Priscilla Stadler, FF Member, at Socrates Sculpture Park, Queens, June 21

Happy Solstice!

You are invited to the Summer Solstice activities at Socrates Sculpture Park tomorrow, June 21.

During the range of festivities celebrating the longest day of the year, from 5:30 - 6:30 I'll be inviting people to question a homemade oracle comprised of random phrases selected from multiple sources related to light, dark, and solstice.

You can also contribute your own answer -- to an unknown question.

From these questions and answers we will co-create a poem that will be read by writer Audrey DiMola during the evening's performances.

Socrates is a lovely spot by the water in LIC/Astoria, with a great view of another borough's famous skyline. And, currently, a lot of goats made by sculptor Nari Ward.

Hope you can join us at this beautiful spot for some creative fun to celebrate the solstice!

4. Hector Canonge, FF Alumn, at Glasshouse Project, Brooklyn, June 21, and more

Hector Canonge, FF Alumn, performs "OLVIDO" for Neo Domesticity Performance Art Festival at Glasshouse Project (June 21st), continues with "projekt RECOVERY" (June 11th - ongoing), and prepares to embark on a month long exploratory and performative journey through various cities in Spain and Portugal with artist and collaborator, Veronica Peña (June 27th - August 1st)
Wednesday, June 21st, 9:00 PM - 12:00 AM
Neo-Domesticity Performance Art Festival, Glasshouse Project
246 Union Avenue, Brooklyn, NYC

Durational performance where the artist attempts to organize "proof" of his economic validification and verification of his presence in the United States since his return to New York City in late 2015. After 3 years of living abroad (2012-2015) Canonge returned "home" and had to confront with the bureaucratic challenges of housing, work, and living as an artist in New York City. In "OLVIDO" the artist tries to solve the economic puzzle of domesticity in a society that is more technologically connected yet separated and individualized.

projekt RECOVERY

June 2017 - ongoing

Through the recent launch of "projekt RECOVERY," Hector Canonge attempts to "rescue" and "rebuild" his artistic documentation archive. "projekt RECOVERY" asks friends, colleagues and the public in general who took pictures and/or video documentation of his performances, initiatives, and presentations to send their documentation to the artist. The project is a reflection about loss, obsolescence, detachment, ephemerality, and the transitory nature of Live Art.
Artist Statement: "projekt RECOVERY" is an attempt to mend my persona after being submitted to a violent act where my psychological and physical well being were suddenly disrupted. The project is not only a presentation / performance / dialogue / reflection, but an opportunity for me to (re)formulate my art practice, understand better my own objectives for the years to come, and reflect on the nature of my own material and moral values. To a larger degree, projekt RECOVERY is also an attempt to rescue documentation of 3 years of work (2014-2016) in three different continents. Work that vanished in a moment of joy and trustfulness. Joy as we were celebrating the presentation of my last work, and trust as I believed in the safety of a space, and the good will of people. projekt RECOVERY is a plea, a request, an act of solidarity, and a call for actions from friends, colleagues, acquaintances, the public in general who took pictures and/or video documentation of my performances, initiatives, and presentations. Please send send any visual documentation via Wetransfer, Dropbox or Email. All contributors and supporters will be credited accordingly. Use the email: canonge.projekt.recovery@gmail.com

7. Richard Serra, FF Alumn, at Kunstmuseum Basel, Switzerland, thru Oct. 15

Kunstmuseum Basel
Richard Serra
Films and Videotapes
May 20-October 15, 2017

Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart
St. Alban-Rheinweg 60
4010 Basel


Richard Serra (b. San Francisco, 1938) is one of the most influential artists working today. He is best known for the monumental steel outdoor sculptures he has made since the 1970s; several of these have sparked public controversies-including in Basel, where his sculpture Intersection on Theaterplatz is a striking sight in the urban fabric.
The exhibition Richard Serra: Films and Videotapes at the Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart turns the spotlight on Serra's work in film, which goes back to 1968 and has been a crucial source of impulses for his artistic and experimental use of both media. The artist also recruited several people to work with him on his films who went on to distinguished careers in the fields of visual art and filmmaking, including Joan Jonas, Nancy Holt, and Babette Mangolte.
The show presents sixteen films and videos Richard Serra made between 1968 and 1979. All works are screened in the original formats. Richard Serra: Films and Videotapes is the first exhibition to offer such a comprehensive survey of Serra's entire output on film: although art theorists regard these works as a vital component of his oeuvre, they have rarely been shown as a cohesive ensemble-perhaps in part because it is difficult to screen 16mm footage in constant quality over an extended period of time.
The art collection of the City of Basel has six films and four videos by Richard Serra-some were acquired early on in 1977 and 1980. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York, has lent us four films and one video. Another video is presented with support from Stiftung Situation Kunst, Bochum, Germany.
All film copies for the exhibition were produced with support from the MoMA, which has been working to develop new restoration techniques for celluloid-based art.
