1. Aricoco, FF Fund recipient 2016-17, at Wave Hill, The Bronx, Oct. 28

Art & Nature-Social Communication in the Insect World:
Video Screening and Science Talk
Saturday, Oct 28 - 1:00PM
Wave Hill House
649 W 249th St,
Bronx, NY 10471

Learn how social insects-ants, bees, termites and more-have long inspired the imagination of artists and the curiosity of scientists. In conjunction with Call & Response, the fall exhibition in Glyndor Gallery, this program presents a video art piece by former Sunroom artist aricoco, exploring the behavior of bugs that live in highly organized societies. Chemical ecologist Qian "Karen" Sun follows with a talk about how these creatures "speak," cooperate and achieve colony-level success. Entomologist Lawrence Forcella provides a display of live ants and termites.

aricoco's new video piece, "PIPORNOT's Superorganism 101" explores the existence of insect society as a superorganism -- a highly specialized altruistic community, where an individual is dependent on the greater system for survival. "PIPORNOT's Superorganism 101" follows an absurd narrative, which mimics the form of an introductory class. The concept of non-hierarchical systems of social insects as well as the careful relationship between the powerless insect queen (a symbol of decentralized power) and her sterile workers (a key to the altruistic society) are examined through a documented science lecture and interviews with ("real") scientists. This work was made possible, in part, by the Franklin Furnace Fund supported by Jerome Foundation; the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; with general operating support from the New York State Council on the Arts; and with editing support from the Outpost's Cuts and Burns Residency Program

This event is a prelude to a culminating final performance/installation piece that is scheduled to be presented at La MaMa Galleria in January 2018.

The event is free with admission to the grounds.

4. Gabrielle Hamilton, FF Alumn, in The New York Times, Sept. 19

Hunger and Desire, Stripped of Window Dressing, at Prune
Restaurant Review
By PETE WELLS SEPT. 19, 2017

First, some disclosures are in order. Gabrielle Hamilton, who owns Prune, writes one column a month for The New York Times Magazine. I don't have anything to do with that, but I have edited a few of her essays in the past. We had a fine time working together, and kept in touch for a while. About a decade ago we introduced our toddlers for a play date while she cooked breakfast. It ended after her son hit mine over the head with a toy truck.

I haven't seen her in the five and a half years I've been reviewing restaurants, though, even when I've eaten at Prune, in the East Village. And, against our personal history, one has to balance the simmering resentment I feel each time I remember that writing is only a sideline for Ms. Hamilton, and yet she's better at it than most people who do it for a living, including me.

Any new Prune customer who isn't already aware that Ms. Hamilton is a very good writer will realize it when the menus arrive. They are put together by somebody who understands how words work. Although these days she drafts them with Ashley Merriman, whom she married last year and with whom she shares the title of chef, their tone has not changed in the 18 years Prune has been open.

They do not follow the current fad of forcing nouns into shotgun weddings to which no prepositions, participles or conjunctions were invited ("cod, radish, yogurt, nasturtium"). Instead you see phrases that could be in the first sentence of a short story you wouldn't be able to put down.

Under the bar snacks is one I defy you to read without feeling a spasm of curiosity: "Turkish disco pistachios." You may not instantly grasp that the nuts are going to be roasted before your eyes over a mound of flaming salt, or that when the fire goes out they will be warm and will have the unmistakable flavor of anise, but you will know that something is about to happen.

Often, the phrases are more direct. One of the vegetables recently was "Corn on the cob with butter and salt." You might see corn on the cob anywhere, but the butter and salt are the kind of concrete details that could make this a line from a poem about summer. Here's another line: "plain boiled zucchini drowned in olive oil." There were four delicious little squashes, cooked whole with their bright firm stems on, and there was indeed enough clean, grassy oil to drown them.

What's that I hear? Is that an objection from someone who boils zucchini at home? Go ahead, knock yourself out. Just don't try to tell me that I've been scammed. The whole objective of Prune is and always has been to cook the food of hunger and desire, strip it of the usual restaurant window dressing, and put it in front of you.

This is why the menu reads so well. Good writing comes from clear thinking, and Ms. Hamilton's thoughts on what makes a satisfying dinner have always been extremely clear. What more could you ask from the start of a meal than sautéed chanterelles shedding mushroom juice and butter into a thick slice of toasted white bread? And what could you add to improve a main course of swordfish, grilled gently enough that a rosé blush is left in its flesh, with melted anchovy butter that runs into the tiny boiled potatoes?

Well, there is a garnish: a lemon wedge and a parsley sprig. This I suppose counts as restaurant window dressing, but because it comes from another era it also evokes a specific sense memory that gives meaning to the whole dish.

Over the years Ms. Hamilton has delegated the cooking to several people. I didn't eat there under every regime, but I can say that the meals I've eaten since Ms. Merriman arrived from the Waverly Inn early last year have been at least as good as any I've ever had at Prune. Certainly the cooking is more steadily skillful and more varied than it was around the time of its last Times review, a dozen years ago, when Frank Bruni gave it one star.

Not everything sparkles; a ragout of artichokes and shell beans tasted about as gray as it looked. But for the most part Ms. Merriman has managed to nest her style inside her wife's while, I think, expanding the boundaries of both.

Braised rabbit leg is a very Prune thing to cook, but I doubt that in 1999 it would have been presented, as it was earlier this summer, over yellow hexagons of carrot mixed with Calabrian chiles, mint leaves and pine nuts, with a handful of fried bread crumbs thrown over the top. That Mediterranean tilt could be Ms. Merriman's work, but the dish still has a Hamiltonian directness.

The grilled branzino on the menu, on the other hand, is a classic Hamilton dish. The simplicity - a whole fish on a plate - has her name all over it, and the application of fennel oil is the sort of nuance - invisible, politely insistent - she prefers to screamingly interventionist moves.

The two women run a kitchen that is capable of intricate footwork, but that's not what it's known for. What they and their cooks do, you can too, generally. This was true back when Prune still served canned sardines loaded onto a plate with Triscuits, pickles and a bloop of mustard, a dish that didn't take any cooking but did require enough nerve to fill a punch bowl.

The sardines are not on the menu, but cans are kept on hand for sentimental customers. The nerve is still there, although a less fraught word for it is confidence. It is confidence that allows Prune to place a scrupulously made martini on the cocktail list next to a Long Island Iced Tea that has been purged of its scuzzier ingredients but is still pretty louche.
It is confidence that gets you unshowy desserts like slices of black plums tossed with sugar, lemon zest and cardamom and spread out on buttered toast, or a bunch of Concord grapes lounging on a plate of chipped ice.

It is confidence that lets some servers wear pale pink crew-neck T-shirts and others V-necks of a riper, fleshier pink. Confidence that helps them thread through tables that are by anybody's standards too close together; confidence that allows them to treat every customer, the ones who look like actors and the ones who look like retired semiotics professors, with the same attention and care.

It is confidence that lets this French-looking bistro with its much-put-upon marble bar and fuzzed-up mirrors play Yo La Tengo one night and Whitney Houston's greatest hits on another and still believe that somehow it will all mean something.

54 East First Street
(First Avenue)
East Village

Atmosphere A tight squeeze, with a French look and a New York mood. Whatever their pink T-shirts and tattoos might suggest, the servers are studied professionals.
Sound Not meditative, but well below screaming.

Price $$$ (expensive)
Open Monday to Friday for dinner, Saturday and Sunday for brunch and dinner.
Reservations Accepted.
Wheelchair Access The dining room is small step above the sidewalk, but the short trip to the restroom is probably unnavigable.

5. John Kelly, FF Alumn, fall news

From the dance studio to the visual art studio and back -

John Kelly Performance - Fall 2017 Newsletter View this email in your browser (http://mailchi.mp/johnkellyperformance/john-kelly-performance-fall-2017-newsletter?e=057bf50ceb)
Hello Friends -
As we head into the fall I wanted to share what we've been up to, and what is next for us, both in performance and visual art -

Our spring workshop of TIME NO LINE (http://johnkellyperformance.org/wp2/projects-2/time-no-line/) at La MaMa resulted in new movement and video sequences, and some stunning images (by the great photographer Paula Court). It will premiere in February of 2018 in a 3-week run at the historic Ellen Stewart Theatre at La MaMa (http://lamama.org/) . Updates to follow!
In anticipation of my September 21st (THIS WEEK!) workshop performance of TIME NO LINE, I recently spoke with A.R.T. Editor & Assistant Dramaturg Robert Duffley and Publications/Education & Community Programs Intern Zoë Sonnenberg.

This performance will be at OBERON (http://americanrepertorytheater.org/oberon) , as part of the GLOBERON FESTIVAL at American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, MA. I've previously performed at the A.R.T. in DIDO, QUEEN OF CARTHAGE (https://www.elliotnortonawards.com/2005) (2005) and ORPHEUS X (http://americanrepertorytheater.org/events/show/orpheus-x) (2006), so its a bit of a homecoming for me.

READ THE INTERVIEW (http://americanrepertorytheater.org/inside/blog/%5Btitle-raw%5D/26563) - INFO AND TICKETS (http://americanrepertorytheater.org/events/show/john-kelly-%E2%80%93-time-no-line)

A FRIEND GAVE ME A BOOK (http://johnkellyperformance.org/wp2/projects-2/graphic-novel/) - is nearing completion!!!

My hand-drawn graphic novel (based on surviving a trapeze accident while being obsessed with Caravaggio) was the focus of my month-long artist residency at the Yaddo (https://www.yaddo.org/) art colony in Saratoga Springs, NY this past July. This fall I will complete work on the final panels.

The next steps will be finding a publisher for the graphic novel as a book, and an exhibition space to show the works up close as artwork. Future homes for this ambitious 5 year-long rendering of images and texts - in the form of 170 10" x 10" mixed-media drawings on paper, wood, and linen.

Our performances of DOWN TO YOU (https://joespub.publictheater.org/Tickets/Calendar/PlayDetailsCollection/Joes-Pub/2017/J/John-Kelly/?SiteTheme=JoesPub) at Joe's Pub on June 6th and 9th were a huge success and sold out almost instantly - so thanks to everyone to came out for the show! Look for news of a reprise and longer run of this 'drag free' concert of the music of Joni Mitchell next spring - photo by Albie Mitchell

A Theatre Festival in Slovenia beckoned, so I gave them a full house workshop performance of ČAS NE ČRTA / TIME NO LINE on August 21st. My first time in Ljubljana in 20 years, this time at the MLADI LEVI (http://www.bunker.si/eng/archives/17158) (Young Lions) Festival. I may not be young, but the lion still roars ~

Thanks for your continued interest in our work. I'll share more news as the year unfolds and we head into 2018. Yours, John

UCSD University Art Gallery
Biomedical Library Building, 9500 Gilman Dr,
San Diego, CA 92161

This exhibition will highlight the depth and breadth of conceptual art practices of Visual Arts alumni. Building upon the extensive and unique early history of the department, this exhibition celebrates an extraordinary roster of artists who came to study in San Diego in the early 1970s through the 1990s. Diverse in their approaches, these artists shared a desire to foster changes in art by challenging modernist orthodoxy. Through their experiments with hybrid forms and extended media, these artists brought an abundance of new strategies and subjects to contemporary art.

The University Art Gallery will exhibit photos of the Namewall, 1974. The artwork was conceived to transform the International Terminal 2 at the Los Angeles International Airport. Approximately 12,500 laminated paper tiles were imprinted with 2,000 repeated first names (equally representing women and men) to cover the 280 foot long wall.

8. Carrie Moyer, FF Alumn, at Hunter College, Manhattan

Art & Education
SEPTEMBER 18, 2017
Professor Carrie Moyer appointed Director of Hunter MFA in Studio Art

The Hunter College MFA in Studio Art is pleased to announce the appointment of painter and writer Carrie Moyer as the new director of Hunter's nationally ranked graduate studio program. A member of Hunter's studio faculty since 2011, Professor Moyer has exhibited in the US and Europe for over twenty years and has been the subject of two solo museum exhibitions: Carrie Moyer: Pirate Jenny, Tang Museum, Saratoga Springs, NY (2013) and Carrie Moyer: Interstellar, Worcester Museum of Art, MA (2012). Her paintings were included in the 2017 Whitney Biennial. Between 1991-2008, Moyer and photographer Sue Schaffner collaborated as Dyke Action Machine!, a public art project that humorously dissected mainstream advertising through the insertion of lesbian imagery. Moyer's writing has appeared in Art in America, Artforum, the Brooklyn Rail and other venues, and she is the author of monographic essays on Louise Fishman and Nancy Grossman. She has been the recipient of a number of awards, including grants from the Guggenheim and Joan Mitchell Foundations, Anonymous Was a Woman, and Creative Capital. Professor Moyer takes over from Professor Joel Carreiro, who guided Hunter's MFA program for nearly two decades.

The Hunter College MFA in Studio Art is an affordable three-year program designed to offer broad opportunities for artists to develop their work and an ongoing studio practice in an environment that encourages experimentation, production, and critical dialogue. MFA students work with Hunter's exceptional fulltime faculty both individually in tutorials and in small seminars focusing on student work and contemporary practice, as well as in classes in the theory, criticism, and history of art. Students in the MFA also have the opportunity to work closely with faculty and curatorial staff, and with students in Hunter's MA Art History program, developing public exhibitions for the College's four galleries. These exhibition-based courses may be used to earn a Curatorial Certificate, a new program in the Department of Art and Art History.

Located at the corner of Hudson and Canal in Tribeca in Manhattan, the Hunter MFA offers students and faculty exceptional access to intellectual, cultural, and creative resources. Our presence in the middle of New York's art world is crucial to our educational goal: the development of professional artists capable of continued growth once they leave the relatively structured graduate school environment.

12. Linda Montano, FF Alumn, at SUNY New Paltz, Oct. 4

Wednesday, October 4, 12-3 pm
NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellow Linda Montano (Conceptual/Performance Art '86) as Bob Dylan; Amanda Heidel as Joan

Student Union Building 12-1 pm, Sojourner Truth Library 1-2 pm, Fine Arts Building Rotunda 2-3 pm

Appearing on the SUNY New Paltz campus as Bob Dylan, NYFA Fellow Linda Mary Montano's performance becomes a suspension of disbelief.

Linda Montano is a seminal figure in contemporary feminist performance art and her work since the mid-1960s has been critical in the development of video by, for, and about women. Attempting to dissolve the boundaries between art and life, Montano continues to actively explore her art/life through shared experience, role adoption, and intricate life altering ceremonies, some of which last for seven or more years. Her artwork is starkly autobiographical and often concerned with personal and spiritual transformation Montano's influence is wide ranging - she has been featured at museums including The New Museum in New York, MOCA San Francisco and the ICA in London.
