REVOLVE Performance Art Days 17-19 maj 2018

Welcome to the third edition of Revolve Performance Art Days in Uppsala.
Focusing on the present moment the festival presents contemporary performance art by internationally acclaimed artists active in the intersection of visual and performing arts. Revolve moves between different locations, from the countryside to the city: the orangery, the art museum, the park, the street, the concert house, the bus and the theatre stage. The different spaces become active elements of the art event and the meeting between the artist and the audience. Revolve aims at bringing together a richness of expressions and artistic strategies allowing them to enhance, affect and collide with one another - an intense festival, rotating and revolving around art as event, experience and gathering.

5. Bernard Tschumi, FF Alumn, receives Université Paris-Sud, Saclay, France commission

Bernard Tschumi urbanistes Architectes (BTuA) has won one of the largest university commissions in France at the Université Paris-Sud in Saclay, just south of Paris. The €283 million ($350 million) design-build contract for a state-of-the-art education and research center will be built by a team led by Bouygues Construction and also including architects Groupe-6 and BE. The team will carry out the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of the Biology-Pharmacy-Chemistry Center for the Université Paris-Sud, which is developing into France's largest research and education complex. Completion of the 88,000 square-meter (approximately 1 million square-foot) center is scheduled for April 2022, following 12 months of development studies and 36 months of construction.

Made of six buildings closely connected by flying bridges, the METRO center, named for its location close to transportation from central Paris, incorporates teaching facilities, research labs, social spaces, restaurants, offices, logistical areas, and car parks. The complex will house over 4,500 people, with 3,300 students and 1,300 research faculty members on the METRO site (at 74,000 square meters).

This public-private partnership, or PPP, resulted from a competition process involving three of Europe's largest construction firms and associated architectural teams: Bernard Tschumi with Bouygues Construction and Groupe-6, Herzog & de Meuron with Vinci Construction, and MVRDV with Eiffage. The competition lasted two and a half years, with precise client requests including a complex program and tight cost-control and energy-saving requirements.

The architectural concept of the METRO site, coordinated by Bernard Tschumi Architects, consists of a chain of six separate but interlinked buildings that act as an interior street, a common denominator, and a social space for the whole complex, joining together three different scientific disciplines.

Facing north, a fully glazed building opens onto the main axis of the site and acts as the heart of the complex. It includes social spaces and auditoria, a small museum, administration, and applied research facilities. To the east are research laboratories; to the west lie teaching facilities and the southern access-point of the site.

All facades opening to the north and all connecting bridges are fully glazed, while the south, east, and west facades are made of high-quality white precast-concrete panels with fins.

The scale of the different parts of the complex varies depending on their functions and their locations on the site. For example, the glazed facades on the main campus axis are 25 meters high (approximately 82 feet) and incorporate six levels, but the volumes located near small existing constructions have been designed with three levels each.

The project was developed simultaneously in both of Bernard Tschumi's offices: BTA in New York (Joel Rutten, co-director) and BTuA in Paris (Véronique Descharrières, partner and co-director). Groupe-6 was charged with the interior organization of the research component, a major part of the complex.

QUIMETTA PERLE

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 3, 6-8PM
May 3-24, 2018

Carter Burden Gallery
548 W. 28th St., 5th Floor, NYC
Hours: Tues.-Fri. 11-5pm, Sat. 11-6pm

Also Featuring Greg Brown & Howard Nathenson in the East Gallery
On the Wall: Elton Tucker

I create images of empowered women in luminous beads and reflective sequins. They are of diverse races, ethnicities and ages. Some pieces are embedded with small format video imagery in iPods or digital frames. This looped video is gestural; with kissing lips, hand gestures, eyes looking around or spitting pearls; occasionally with sound, to "tell" poems.

Regally posed women dominate earlier pieces. In my newest work, the figure is heroic, and in motion. Perspective and shading interact with flat surfaces. Aesthetics of mysticism, elegance and pop culture vie with and complement each other. Process is important, with larger works taking hundreds of hours and hundreds of thousands of beads to create.

Inspired by Derrick Alexis Coard's drawings of bearded, African American men, I made a beaded image of my son, Natu.

This exhibition includes a historic feminist work, Sampler, which is my first embroidered piece, sewn over 40 years ago, in 1977. It reveals, not only mastery of the embroidery stitches, but the body beneath the skin and the personal meaning of all the places within the female body.

FREUD ON THE COUCH -PSYCHE IN THE BOOK

in The Center for Book Arts, New York
April 20 - June 20, 2018
Organized by Susanne Padberg,
Galerie DRUCK & BUCH, Vienna
The science of psychoanalysis has always held a great fascination for artists - both as a medium for reflection and as an instrument for creating meaning. Indeed, Freud's "cultural work" (per Thomas Mann) remains a popular subject for many contemporary artists. Similar to how images in dreams are visualizations of hidden thoughts, artistic creations probe the depths and meanings of our cultural self-perception, they portray the forces shaping not only the individual but also the collective unconscious. We are surrounded by the issues Freud named and analyzed, and we are also moved by them. The artwork in this exhibition is based directly or indirectly on these concepts and theories or are closely associated to specific themes.
Artists Include: Thorsten Baensch, Sarah Bryant, Ken Campbell, Crystal Cawley, Maureen Cummins, Anne Deguelle, Gerhild Ebel, Stefan Gunnesch, Karen Hanmer, Anna Helm, Susan Johanknecht, Kurt Johannessen, Janosch Kaden, Burgi Kühnemann, M.

Away From The Wall
The National Arts Club - 15 Gramercy Park South, NYC

April 30-June 16

Away From the Wall is an exhibition that incorporates the
traditional wall attachment with structural components
that move into space. Both elements support one another.
As our spatial relationship with such works is reconfigured,
the objects on view challenge our comprehension of how
painting and sculpture exist today.

An exhibition of works several artists demonstrate the
variety of ways they approach the practice.

12. Ana Mendieta, FF Alumn, in the Berlin Biennale, Germany, June 9-Sept. 9

Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art

www.berlinbiennale.de \

The 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art titled We don't need another hero is a conversation with artists and contributors who think and act beyond art as they confront the incessant anxieties perpetuated by a willful disregard for complex subjectivities. From June 9 to September 9, 2018, it presents works by:

Agnieszka Brzeżańska, Ana Mendieta, Basir Mahmood, Belkis Ayón, Cinthia Marcelle, Dineo Seshee Bopape, Elsa M'bala, Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa, Fabiana Faleiros, Firelei Báez, Gabisile Nkosi, Grada Kilomba, Heba Y. Amin, Herman Mbamba, Joanna Piotrowska, Johanna Unzueta, Julia Phillips, Keleketla! Library, Las Nietas de Nonó, Liz Johnson Artur, Lorena Gutiérrez Camejo, Lubaina Himid, Luke Willis Thompson, Lydia Hamann & Kaj Osteroth, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Mario Pfeifer, Mildred Thompson, Mimi Cherono Ng'ok, Minia Biabiany, Moshekwa Langa, Natasha A. Kelly, Okwui Okpokwasili, Oscar Murillo, Özlem Altın, Patricia Belli, Portia Zvavahera, Sam Samiee, Sara Haq, Simone Leigh, Sinethemba Twalo and Jabu Arnell, Sondra Perry, Tessa Mars, Thierry Oussou, Tony Cokes, Tony Cruz Pabón and Zuleikha Chaudhari.

Their contributions are on view at four permanent exhibition venues: Akademie der Künste at Hanseatenweg, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Volksbühne Pavilion, and ZK/U - Center for Art and Urbanistics. In coproduction with HAU Hebbel am Ufer, HAU2 serves as a site for two performances (June 15 and 16, 2018) and a temporary exhibition (June 9 and 10 as well as June 13 through June 16, 2018).
The exhibition venues were chosen not only because of their historic relevance in Berlin but also because of what they represent today. The 10th Berlin Biennale situates itself in conversation with these interrelated timeframes. The invited artists propose a renegotiation of the systems of exchange produced within these venues. The presented works also expand the possibilities of exchange by introducing their own perspectives.
We don't need another hero: The 10th Berlin Biennale is curated by Gabi Ngcobo with a curatorial team composed of Nomaduma Rosa Masilela, Serubiri Moses, Thiago de Paula Souza, and Yvette Mutumba.

13. Aline Mare, FF Alumn, at Mike Kelley Gallery, Los Angeles, CA, opening May 6

Los Angeles-based artist Aline Mare grew up in New York City and began her career as an image maker and performer in the thriving avant-garde arts scene of downtown Manhattan in the 1970s and 1980s. Mare first met the late Kathy Acker at the Kitchen in New York and began a friendship with the experimental and subversive writer that would last on and off for decades. Ultimately, the relationship would inspire Mare's new body of work, "Requiem: Aching for Acker," a photo-based multimedia exhibition, with each piece incorporating alternative processes and technologies to create unique, hand-finished artworks. Mare uses imagery and elements - including actual artifacts of Acker's - that infuse the series with magic and myth. The show opens at the Mike Kelley Gallery at Beyond Baroque on May 6, with a reception from 5-7PM.

\Mare crossed paths with Acker many times, and when they met in San Francisco in 1995, she sensed something was very wrong - and then learned Acker had stage-4 breast cancer. Acker refused western medicine and sought alternative therapies; Mare was a close member of her support group in the final months of her life, until her death in November 1997. Soon after her passing, Mare read Acker's last book, Eurydice in the Underworld (Arcadia Press, 1997). "I was blown away by its pure emotion and the courageous confrontation with her own illness and dying." Mare created a body of work dedicated to Acker in the late '90s, inspired by "Requiem," the poem on the book's final page, where she filters her cancer diagnosis through Greek mythology. Mare always felt, though, that there was much more to say.

In 2016, she was contacted by author Chris Kraus to be interviewed for her most recent work, After Kathy Acker: A Literary Biography (semiotext(e), 2017). The conversation spurred Mare to re-engage with Acker as a subject, and in her artist's statement for "Requiem: Aching for Acker," she writes, "I was looking for a vision to match the feelings: the loss and the power I felt reading this final piece. Something that would remind the world of her power as a creative female force of nature - her self-mythologizing a form of empowerment and vulnerability: to marry the past and present in a rich body of work that speaks to the universality of the path we must all take: the path to the underworld."

The show opens at the Mike Kelley Gallery at Beyond Baroque on Sunday, May 6, with a reception from 5-7PM.

14. Beatrice Glow, FF Alumn, receives 2018 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship

BEATRICE GLOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE 2018 SMITHSONIAN ARTIST RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP IN WASHINGTON D.C

Beatrice Glow is researching at the Smithsonian Institution in America's Capitol New York-based, Silicon Valley-born, Beatrice Glow will participate in a 2018 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, an innovative research-based artist residency program, at the Smithsonian Institution's National Portrait Gallery and The National Numismatics Collections at the National Museum of American History. Glow's proposed project, Tobacco: From Cultural Roots to Digital Smoke Signals, is a continuation of her art trajectory, which questions colonialist and imperialist histories through transnational networks from diasporic and indigenous perspectives. Researching tobacco's historical weight in the formation of the early Republic through the Smithsonian Institution's vast archives would propel her upcoming project that uses tobacco smoke as a metaphor for our emerging virtual world that is hurtling toward a value system based on cryptocurrency and digital assets. The Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship (SARF) program was launched in 2007 to provide outstanding visual artists from across the world a unique opportunity to work with Smithsonian museums, research sites, collections, and scholars, so they may conduct research that inspires new artwork. SARF Fellows spend one to two months in residence at the Smithsonian immersed in its unparalleled collections and multidisciplinary scholarly expertise, building connections between art, science, history and culture. The Smithsonian Institution is the world's largest museum and research complex, with 19 museums and galleries and the National Zoological Park. On July 1, 1836, Congress accepted the legacy bequeathed to the nation by James Smithson and pledged the faith of the United States to the charitable trust. The total number of objects, works of art and specimens at the Smithsonian is estimated at nearly 138 million, including more than 127 million specimens and artifacts at the National Museum of Natural History. # # # If you would like more information about this Smithsonian Internships, Fellowships, and Research Associates, please contact the Office of Fellowships and Internships at 202-633-7070 or check out their website smithsonianofi.com

15. Naeem Mohaiemen, FF Alumn, Turner Prize Nominee 2018

The New York Times, April 28

Please visit the complete illustrated article linked here (text only follows below):

ARTS
4 Turner Prize Nominees Are Announced
by ROSLYN SULCAS
APRIL 26, 2018

LONDON - An organization that uses architectural rendering software to uncover human rights abuses and three artists depicting social, racial and political issues in film have been nominated for the Turner Prize, Britain's prestigious contemporary art award, Tate Britain announced on Thursday.

The research organization Forensic Architecture, and the artists Naeem Mohaiemen, Charlotte Prodger and Luke Willis Thompson have been shortlisted for the prize, awarded annually to an artist born or living in Britain for an outstanding exhibition in the previous year. The winner will receive 25,000 pounds, or almost $35,000, and the other nominees will each receive £5,000.

The Turner Prize, founded in 1984, could be likened to the Oscar of the art world, and it can give a major boost to an artist's career. Former recipients include Damien Hirst, Chris Ofili, Rachel Whiteread, Gillian Wearing, Steve McQueen and Grayson Perry. The British news media, which eagerly covers the award, has often turned the prize into an opportunity to examine, or denounce, the state of contemporary art.

Last year, the prize was opened to artists 50 and older, but the change was moot this year: All of the artists on the shortlist are younger.

Forensic Architecture - nominated for exhibitions in London; Barcelona, Spain; and Mexico City - is a collaboration of architects, artists, filmmakers, software developers, archaeologists, scientists and others, based at Goldsmiths, University of London.

The group, Michael Kimmelman wrote in The New York Times recently, "scours for evidence of lies, crimes and human rights violations - combining the spatial and engineering skills of architects, the data-gathering prowess of librarians, the doggedness of investigative journalists and the storytelling finesse of screenwriters."

Mr. Mohaiemen, nominated for his participation in Documenta 14 and his solo exhibition at MoMA PS1 in New York, creates films that draw on family history, threaded with reflections on colonialism, politics and religion. "He aptly shows not just how the personal is always entwined with the political, but how history veers from neat linear narratives into circular, concentric and even fantastic and unimaginable patterns and designs," Martha Schwendener wrote in The Times in January.

Ms. Prodger was chosen for her solo exhibition "Bridgit/Stoneymollan Trail," a film that combines videos shot on camcorders and iPhones since the 1990s, overlaid with texts from the science fiction writer Samuel R. Delany and the singer Nina Simone. "The cumulative effect of Stoneymollan Trail is elegiac," Adrian Searle wrote in The Guardian. "Prodger channels the voices of the living and the dead, mixing them with her own past."

The New Zealand-born Mr. Thompson was nominated for his solo exhibition "Autoportrait," a silent 35-millimeter film of Diamond Reynolds, who shared video on Facebook Live of the moments after her partner, Philando Castile, was fatally shot by a police officer in Minnesota. "Portrayed in black and white against a plain dark backdrop, she has the aura of a Renaissance madonna or a Garbo-era movie star," Hettie Judah commented in The Guardian last year. "Thompson shows her as a formidable, complex presence."

An exhibition of work by the four finalists will open at Tate Britain on Sept. 25 and run though Jan. 6. Under a new partnership with BNP Paribas, entry will be free for those 25 or younger in the first 25 days of the show.
The winner of the 2018 prize, chosen by a four-person jury led by Alex Farquharson, the director of Tate Britain, will be announced at a ceremony broadcast live on the BBC in early December.

"Die Again Romeo! Robert Diamond Coates & the Old World".
Unstaged reading in Dixon Place Lounge
Tuesday June 5, 2018, 7PM
No door charge.
"Die Again Romeo!" is a satirical period piece with hilarious contemporary references. It's written by a collage method akin to Ted Berrigan's sonnets.
The play is inspired by Robert "Romeo" "Diamond" Coates a 19th Century dandy and the world's most celebrated actor, a colorful historic figure whose bejeweled foppish Romeo who crafted the definitive dramatic death scene over and over again on the same night. http://dixonplace.org/performances/die-again-romeo-robert-diamond-coates-the-old-world/

I'm still looking for a few actors/readers for the five roles in "Die Again Romeo!". Please email a headshot, links, etc. to rorynewyork@hotmail.com if you want to perform. Small stipend.

19. Marisa Morán Jahn, FF Alumn, on youtube.com, now online

A humorous and touching film series supported by ITVS and Sundance, the CareForce One Travelogues features the artist Marisa Morán Jahn, her son Choco, and their buddy Anjum Asharia as they travel from their homes in NYC to Miami in a fifty-year old station wagon, the CareForce One, seeking solutions to the nations care crisis. Advocacy partners: National Domestic Workers Alliance, Caring Across Generations, Hand in Hand: Domestic Employers Network. www.careforce.co

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gqeHY62_uA&feature=youtu.be

Celebrate International Workers Day by tuning in to the digital premiere of CareForce One Travelogues Episode #1 out NOW on ITVS Indie Lens Storycast. Share the trailer above, post on your social media platforms, and forward this newsletter to family and friends to join in and uplift care work.

Help us spread the word about this joyful and unstoppable movement of women-led workers sharing their stories to change laws, create solutions, and re-shape how we value care in this country.

"I had been working as a nanny for the past 15 years. On the day that I saw the CareForce One, I decided I was ready to become a worker leader."
- Ana Cipoletta, worker-leader with Matahari Women's Worker Center in Boston

At CareForceOne Travelogues' film premieres and events this past month at MIT, Harvard University School of Public Health, UC Berkeley Law School, and more, we've brought together domestic workers, employers, artists, policy-makers, public health advocates, media-makers, students, family caregivers, and immigrant justice groups. Through these conversations and brainstorms, participants begin to transform their individual experiences into larger movements and narratives, recognizing their agency to shape history.

The CareForce One Travelogues is created in partnership with the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Caring Across Generations, Hand in Hand: Domestic Employers Network.

The project is made possible through support from Sundance Institute New Frontier, and Rockefeller Foundation, Asian American Women's Giving Circle of the Ms. Foundation, Fledgling Fund, Tribeca Film Institute, Franklin Furnace, MAP Fund, Wave Farm regrant program through the New York State Media Assistance Fund, and individual donors like you!

29. Adrianne Wortzel, FF Alumn, receives ThoughtWorks Residency 2018

Mechanics & Movement: Announcing Our New Robotics Residents

We are pleased to announce that Adrianne Wortzel and Catie Cuan will join ThoughtWorks Arts this summer as our newest residents, exploring issues of movement and robotics.

Adrianne Wortzel is an acclaimed artist who creates unique and innovative interactive web-based works, robotic and telerobotic installations, performance productions, videos, and writings. During her residency at ThoughtWorks Arts, Adrianne will be initiating a project to develop a social and psychotherapeutic tool for nonverbal expression through gesture.

Catie Cuan is a performer, choreographer, and technologist. Her current robotics work, Time to Compile, shows how choreography can inform the design of robots to make them more effective and expressive, especially for personal spaces like homes and hospitals. Catie will use her residency to finalize the performance piece and synthesize her research for this project.

The residency was awarded to these two artists respectively, because of their unique and complementary views on important issues. Their practices provide different critical approaches to issues of the mechanical and movement, as it pertains to robotics and human-computer interaction.

You can learn more about Adrianne and Catie and the projects they will be pursuing through their residency at ThoughtWorks in the announcement blog post.

30. Clifford Owens, FF Alumn, named ArtPace International Artist-in-Residence, and more

Greetings!

I hope this finds you well.

I'm writing to share some wonderful news with you. I have two upcoming residencies: MacDowel Colony and ArtPace International Artist-in-Residence Program. During both residencies, I'll be working on a new body of color photographs and a suite of works on paper that I started last summer in residence at Denniston Hill . At ArtPace, I will feature an iteration of my performance-based project "Photographs with an Audience" (on-going since 2008, and previously performed in New York City, Chapel-Hill, Houston, Miami, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Manchester, England).

The past year of projects, group exhibitions, and lectures has been productive.
Projects: "Seminar: Denniston Hill," the second iteration of a work that imagines a critical pedagogy of performance art. Group exhibitions: "Lone Wolf Recital Corp" at the Museum of Modern Art, "Active Ingredients: Prompts, Props, Performance" at Williams College Museum, "After the Fall" at Peter Blum, "Remains" at Fergus McCaffrey. Lectures: Williams College Plonsker Family Lecture in Contemporary Art, Muhlenberg College, University of South Florida, Bard College, and Columbia University. And a residency at Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program.

Of course, none of this would be possible without your support. Thank You!

31. David Everitt Howe, FF Alumn, at Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, opening May 17, and more

Hey lovelies!

I'm very excited that two exhibitions I curated are opening at Pioneer Works in the coming weeks; first up on May 17th is Demian DinéYazhi' and R.I.S.E.'s first institutional solo exhibition in New York, "A Nation is a Massacre," for which they will be producing new agitprop work on our Risograph machine. The second is Gerard & Kelly's CLOCKWORK, opening May 31st, which will be a massive build-out of a new video installation stemming from their ongoing Modern Living project, as well as a brand new performance commission synced to sunlight falling out of Pioneer Works' very industrial, clerestory windows. It should be something.

Please come to the openings if you're around, or to the exhibitions as they're up.

Barbara Bloom

Décor: Barbara Bloom, Andrea Fraser, Louise Lawler

at MOCA Pacific Design Center

April 28 - July 15, 2018

The exhibition is centered around Bloom's rarely seen The Reign of Narcissism (1988-89), a full-scale faux-neoclassical period room dedicated to a fictionalized version of the artist. Replete with crown moldings, gilded chairs, vanity mirrors, and plaster busts of the artist, the installation revels in the slippage between interior decorating and museum display. Videos and photographs by Lawler and Fraser focus on images of art in museums and the typically overlooked architectural details of institutions, with both artists invested in exploring the myriad ways décor-the arrangement of objects in space-carries meaning.

The Anya and Andrew Shiva Gallery at John Jay College of Criminal Justice of the City University of New York, proudly presents Transplants: Greek Diaspora Artists.
This exhibition will be accompanied by a symposium moderated by the show's curator Dr. Thalia Vrachopoulos, at 4 PM the same day, in Room L2.84, New Building with guest speakers Professor Nicholas Alexiou of Queens College, Dr. George Andreopoulos is the Director of the Human Rights Institute at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and at the Graduate Center, fine artist Peter Gerakaris, and art critic Jonathan Goodman.
The exhibition explores the unique nature of diasporic art by Greek-American avant-garde artists in the age of globalism. The efforts I am addressing in the exhibition relate both to the artists' original and transplanted contexts. The art being discussed illustrates the artists' acculturation process through the creation of a new aesthetic and a new social milieu; these artists are also developing ways of seeing that incorporate influences from their country of birth. Today, the position of artists is transitional, a global phenomenon; it transforms the artists' first, formative conditions and insights and reworks them into their present circumstances. In their metamorphosis of a new social position, the result of a changed geography, we find a rich tapestry of innovative ideas, philosophies, media and styles.
ON DISPLAY:
May 2nd, 2018, through June 28th, 2018
As this exhibition demonstrates, expatriate Greek artists speak to the concept of trans-nationalism. The immigrant experience begins with an initial period of acculturation, which is usually accompanied by trauma and deprivation. These negative experiences are especially true for artists, who usually don't have the infrastructural support or financial means to navigate foreign waters. The lack of resources means that the artists' process is extremely demanding; socially, psychologically and culturally it becomes necessary for them to adapt to their host's norm.
Partly due to globalization, but recently, also because of a devastated Greek economy, more and more artists have sought a place to work in a fertile and famous art market like New York's. It is to everyone's benefit when global consciousness brings about tolerance, multi-ethnicity and equality. In this exhibition, Greek diaspora artists, who are playing an active role in contemporary globalism, communicate their background as well as the show's message, namely, the beneficial aspects of the integration and acculturation process. We know that, in a major way, their art demonstrates nostalgia for the old country, as well as the discomfort of acculturation. Their transplanted experience is key to this exhibition.

The participating artists are: Eozen Agopian, Maria Anasazi, Maria Antelman, Eleana Antonaki, Pedro Barbeito, Laura Dodson, ELECTROS aka Babis Vekris, Peter D. Gerakaris, Morfy Gikas, Yorgos Giotsas, Mary Grigoriadis, Mark Hadjipateras, Maria Karametou, Zoe Keramea, Georgia Lale, Alexandros Lambrovassilis, Eirini Linardaki, Aristides Logothetis, Despo Magoni, Georgette Maniatis, Nicholas Moore, Eleni Mylonas, George Negroponte, Ioanna Pantazopoulou, Alexandros Papadopoulos, Antonia Papatzanaki, Costas Picadas, Konstantinos Stamatiou, Panos Tsagaris, Philip Tsiaras, Lydia Venieri, Adonis Volanakis, and Lilia Ziamou.
