2. Regina Vater, FF Alumn, at Galeria Jaqueline Martins, Sao Paulo, Brazil, opening October 27

Regina Vater

Regina Vater in retrospective show at Jaqueline Martins, in October

Beginning on the 27th, some 50 works, including photographs, videos and installations, will be featured in the downtown São Paulo gallery. The artist was inarguably a pioneer in exploring con¬nections between society, nature and technology.

Regina Vater's entire oeuvre straddles the line between political action and art creation. "In her internationally known photo-performance Tina América, from 1976, she utilizes her own image to represent social and ethical conjunctures in Latin America", says the show's organizer Jaqueline Martins. In Regina's own words: "any type of art, if unconsciously, is a process of getting in touch with the creative and regenerative forces of the universe".

The artist's research has always featured exercises on more comprehensive themes, like time and its relationship with native myths, as well as topical, pressing issues seen through the lens of feminism and the social position of women. In Tina América, created following a trip through Latin America on her way to Brazil after a prize had taken her to the USA, Regina portrayed, in 1976, the various masks donned by Latin American women looking to get married. In Mulher Mutante ou SWIMER, an interactive sculpture from 1969, the artist presents a sensual, colorful female body: an attractive, but inert object which depends on third parties to be activated. Both pieces will be included in Regina's first solo show at Galeria Jaqueline Martins since it began representing her in 2012.

The exhibition also features key installations from throughout the artist's career, organized by Jaqueline Martins under a poetical rather than formal logic. Ever since the seventies, the materi¬als and subjects in her oeuvre boast such variety and experimentality that finding characteristics which apply to all of them can prove difficult.
In the Uterus 1967 (exhibited at the Paris Biennale in 1967, with the participation of Hélio Oiticica, Ana Bella Geiger, Rubens Gerchman and Maria Bonomi)

The radial comprehensiveness of Regina Vater's work spans a metaphysical view of life and the universe, inspired by philosophical and anthropological readings, her passion of poetry, her po¬litical ethics, and her interest in the human adventure. This broad gamut of creation, impossible to contain in a drawer, ultimately wrought some neglect from a hurried art sphere that's primarily concerned with more easily catalogued productions. With this show, Galeria Jaqueline Martins sets out to share, with the São Paulo public, specific aspects of the work of an artist whose career goes back over 55 years.



3. Suzanne Lacy, FF Alumn, in Ireland, Oct. 18-22


A new project by Suzanne Lacy
Co-created with Cian Smyth, Helen Sharp, Mark Thomas of Soup Co, Pedro Rebelo, Conan McIvor, Eva Grosman, and Garrett Carr

October 18-22, 2018

"The border is not in the land, it is a state of mind" is a refrain by those who live along the mostly invisible boundary between Ireland and Northern Ireland. With the UK Brexit vote in 2016, that border is once again in the news, as it was during its formation in the years between 1918 and 1921. With Trumpian nationalism now roiling the United States and the Brexit vote bringing new controversy to the Irish border, Lacy launches one of her most ambitious works to date, created in collaboration with communities in Ireland from both sides of the border.

Across and In-Between explores the profound impact the border has on the lives of people who live there. In a globalized world, how will Brexit change their relationship to land and identity? The project draws those who live there into a conversation-metaphoric and literal--on personal and symbolic meanings of this border and by extension all such borders drawn by political forces.

For the past year, Lacy engaged local residents in cross-border locations to co-construct "happenings" that raise unexpected perspectives and add to the lively international debate: 100 years after Partition, how are borders being drawn and where is the voice of "border people" in this conversation? Held at the time of the upcoming October EU Brexit Summit, on October 18th the work premiers with an installation of films and sound on the front of the Ulster Museum.

On October 20th the work at Stormont National Parliament Building, bringing together scores of people from the borderlands whose lives will be dramatically impacted by Brexit negotiations. In the spirit of the historic Good Friday Agreement of 1998, participants will craft a Yellow Manifesto to be released to the public at the end of the project.

Across and In-Between has been co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary, and Belfast International Arts Festival, with the support of the Government of Ireland's Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Reconciliation Fund). Lacy is Belfast International Arts Festival's 2018 Artist in Residence.

REGULAR HOURS starting October 15th:
Tuesday/Wednesday/Saturday, 12-5pm
Thursday/Friday, 12-7pm

Artist Talk: Thursday, October 18th at 7pm
RSVP needed

We Are All Made Of Light is an immersive art exhibition about our interconnectedness, created by Seattle-based artist Maja Petric. The installation utilizes interactive light, spatial sound, and artificial intelligence (AI) to create audiovisual trails of each visitor as they move through space.

The immersive experience emulates constellation in which every person becomes one among the stars. The natural beauty of the universe is evoked to reveal connections between us and the rest of the world that often stay hidden in the plain sight. As visitors move through the galaxy of stars, the light is extruded in their shape, living light trails of their presence across the starscape. Once visitors leave, their trails of light remain in the constellation and are added to the collection of trails that others have left behind. With every new visit, the number of light trails increases and reflects the growing history of the space. Each new person visiting the space is immersed in starscape filled with light that marks the presence of everybody who was part of the piece.

We Are All Made Of Light also coincides with Seattle's BOREALIS: a festival of light, debuting in October in South Lake Union and across Seattle.
The technological components of We Are All Made Of Light are developed by Mihai Jalobeanu. The sound was composed by James Wenlock.

7. Tony Whitfield, FF Alumn, at HOWL!, Manhattan, opening Oct. 17

Wednesday, October 17-November 11, 2018
Opening Reception: Wed, Oct 17th / 6-9 PM / Free
Tony Whitfield RUMINATIONS: Notes on New Love
Tony Whitfield, BW & TW Lessons Learned

Howl! Happening: An Arturo Vega Project is pleased to present a major new body of work by artist Tony Whitfield.

At the center of this exhibition is Notes on New Love, a video work exploring ways in which queer males recognize and embrace the otherness of their desires. Drawing from a series of interviews conducted in the process of developing New Love, 1910: World Out of Kilter, a theater piece that premiered this spring at La MaMa E.T.C., Whitfield sees this work as a meditation on how queer desire blossoms, thrives, and survives categorization as sexual misconduct. Notes on New Love is a collaborative project with Whitfield CoLabs' composer and video editor Andrew Alden, and Alden's Detroit-based venture Obscura Broadcasting Company. In this exhibition, Whitfield contextualizes the series of short videos in Notes on New Love by counterbalancing them with a group of two-dimensional works in several parts that lay bare the artist's competing preoccupations. These pieces serve as transformative exercises, exploring components of Whitfield's experience as an evolving figure in a turbulent queer landscape. Each work consists of a series of rethinkings, minings, broodings, or mutterings that articulate various aspects of a life lived in awkward relationship to other humans. Grounded in the specifics of his biography as a black, queer, mature male who has navigated through decades of challenging circumstances, Whitfield has gathered these works together as what he calls "a meditation on endurance." In Lessons Learned, each grid of brightly colored text written by Whitfield is a (self) portrait constructed from a catalog of the artist's dated recognitions that have influenced his behavior. Each grid was selected from that catalog by men in Whitfield's life. The resulting works are joint self-portraits of Whitfield and his collaborators, chosen for the ways in which the facts of life they state have influenced the artist's behavior, and for their resonance as shared truths. He Lives Everyday is Whitfield's reverie on states of mind that "cloak [his] daily passage through the world." Various Infatuations pays homage to men who have captured Whitfield's romantic imagination over 50 years, from puberty into middle age. inquiries, statements, listing, which began as a meditation on violence against queer people, is a document consisting of remnants from Whitfield's June 2016 window installation at Printed Matter. Whitfield says of the exhibition: "I have never been a skillful reporter; I can't get far enough away from the specifics of what I know, what I see, what I think I can trust. While I believe there are facts, my understanding of those facts is often fleeting. This show is about the view of the world I can hold on to-in all of its queerness. I have learned to find comfort in that queerness."

9. Vernita Nemec, FF Alumn, at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Hackensack, NJ, Oct.15-November 30

Artist Vernita Nemec presents "The Endless Junkmail Scroll", which will be on display at the Edward Williams Gallery on Fairleigh Dickinson University's Metropolitan Campus from Monday, October 15, through Friday, November 30, 2018.
The Gallery is located in FDU's Edward Williams Hall, 150 Kotte Place, Hackensack, N.J. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; and Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There is no admission charge.
About the Artist

"The Endless Junkmail Scroll" is Vernita Nemec AKA N'Cognita's solution to dealing with all that mail we get that tries to persuade us to borrow money, open another charge account or accept services we have no need for. It is a site-specific installation of junkmail that has been collaged, painted and hung, twisted, curling and meandering through the space with lighting and shadows accentuating its presence.

The artist states, "I think of the Endless Junkmail Scroll Installation as an interactive site to be physically experienced as an environment that in past times might have been a forest or jungle since destroyed in order to make the paper that becomes the endless junkmail filling our mailboxes daily. I want the Endless Junk Mail Scroll to be a thought-provoking installation that addresses environmental issues of the 21st century: the destruction of natural resources, the overloading of landfills, over-consumption of material possessions, over-crowding. Issues that if not addressed with recycling and re-use will result in life, as we know it, being over."

Nemec has exhibited her work through the world, presenting not only visual art but also performance art in which she incorporates Butoh movement and text. Her art is in many collections throughout the world, including the Savaria Museum in Hungary, the Museum of Modern Art and is included in the Sylvia Sleigh Collection of Feminist Art at Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey. In addition to being an artist and independent curator, Nemec is also the director of Viridian Artists, a gallery in the Chelsea art district of New York City.

12. Suzanne Lacy, FF Alumn, at the Ulster Museum, Belfast, Ireland, Oct. 18-23


A world premiere presentation by renowned American visual artist Suzanne Lacy entitled Across and In-Between will be showcased at the Ulster Museum from the 18th to 23rd October as part of the Belfast International Arts Festival and 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary.

Created in collaboration with communities in Ireland from both sides of the border, Across and In-Between explores the profound impact the border has on the lives of people who live there. The project is in two parts, The Yellow Line and the Border People's Parliament, deeply engaging border communities and over 300 residents in collaboration to create an artwork that stirs public conversation.

A three-screen film projection, The Yellow Line, was made with participants including farmers, horse-owners, scouts, hikers and villagers from communities across the Fermanagh, Donegal, Leitrim, Cavan and Monaghan border-line. It will be projected upon the front of the Ulster Museum building each evening from 6.00pm to 9.00pm over the six-day run, supported by a temporary exhibition featuring documentary interviews and the opportunity to contribute to the conversation about the Border People's Parliament from 10am daily.
Highlighting the wit and cleverness of border life in the face of political pressures, this participatory artwork focuses on the power of play in creatively responding to complex issues. Suzanne Lacy commented, "Our project draws those who live along the often-invisible boundaries between countries into a conversation-metaphoric and literal - on personal and symbolic meanings of this border and by extension all such borders drawn by political forces. The artwork explores inverse paradigms: visible and invisible, official and unofficial, rural and urban, the real border and imagined ones. For a brief time, we suggest there is a unique in-between identity for those situated between two countries - a border people - and through playful acts we explore this liminal identity."

The second part of the project will see participants in The Yellow Line invited to a private event in Stormont's Parliament Buildings during Belfast International Arts Festival. They will celebrate their involvement in making The Yellow Line and be part of the project's final performance: a border people's parliament, a space where border voices can consider matters of global political significance that are also, to them, intensely local.

Speaking about the project its producer Cian Smyth said, "Across and In-Between is an artwork about the act of drawing a line and an exploration of the social impact that has. Where do you draw your lines? And, therefore, what does it take to overcome the lines we draw? In 1918 the border didn't exist, it was invisible, but it was being imagined, ready to be drawn. In 2018, the border is mostly invisible and there are pressures to draw it visibly once again. We need to be able to navigate this terrain with a sense of humanity, beyond legislature."

Across and In-Between has been co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary, and Belfast International Arts Festival, with the support of the Government of Ireland's Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Reconciliation Fund). The work opens during the Festival on 18 October 2018.

Richard Wakely, Belfast International Arts Festival, said "Suzanne Lacy is an incredible artist, respected worldwide and with a catalogue of work that is truly inspiring. It takes someone with that sense of vision and purpose to accept an invitation to explore a subject as historically and politically complex as the Irish border. It also takes an artist of her calibre and sensitivity to meaningfully engage with the communities living and working there. Across and In-Between continues the Festival's commitment to examining aspects of cultural identity, community and civic responsibility through a creative and cultural lens."

Jenny Waldman, Director of 14-18 NOW said
"14-18 NOW invites artists to explore the impact of the First World War on people's lives today. We are delighted that Suzanne Lacy, an artist who has made extraordinary and pioneering works through projects with communities around the world, accepted our invitation to work with people in Northern Ireland and to reflect with them on the process of how borders are drawn and redrawn. We are grateful to our co-commissioning partner, the Belfast International Arts Festival, and to the Government of Ireland for their support."

Our Panelists

Kirthan Shenoy
A native of Houston, Texas and second-generation Indian-American, Kirthan grew up exposed to southern hospitality as well as Indian culinary technique. He later went on to study food and wine education in Italy, where he gained necessary skills and well-rounded structure. Kirthan has spent the past seven years professionally cooking in New York, from fine dining ventures under Michelin starred Chef Michael White (Vaucluse& Ai Fiori) to private catered affairs. Kirthan's passion and his most treasured trait is "being blessed to grow up with Indian spices, through my culture, and being exposed to French technique."

Nasser Jab
Nasser moved to New York City from Palestine when he was 17 years old. After completing his degree in Finance and Economics, he began working in the food business, eventually launching Mazeish, a Mediterranean-Latino restaurant on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Today Nasser is a co-founder in Komeeda, a food experience platform that aims to enrich communities through food and curated experiences. Nasser has volunteered to help refugees since 2008, mostly working with nonprofits that operate in the refugee camps in Lebanon. He has also written about technological advancements and food. Through Komeeda's platform, Nasser launched Displaced Kitchens in March 2017, to stabilize the heated political conversations about refugees and bring back the beautiful essence of food and humanity that America is about. The initiative has been critical to integrating refugees in American society, and has provided economic and housing opportunities. At the same time, it has introduced Americans to refugee neighbors by telling their stories with food. To date, the series has taken a national and international route, and has fed thousands of people. It has also helped over one hundred refugees resettle in the US and abroad.

Jerome Raguso
Born in Queens, NY, Raguso is known as "the Cannoli King" (which makes him the original king of Queens). Raguso's father Gino, a baker, moved from Italy to New York and opened the family's first pastry shop in 1960 with $500 and penny in his pocket for good luck. The business moved to its current location on East 187th Street and Arthur Avenue in 1965, and Raguso is thrilled that Gino's Pastry Shop is celebrating fifty-eight years in 2018. He is also grateful for so much luck in recent years, a great deal of which he credits to his parents' advice to never forget where you come from. Gino's Pastry Shop is featured in the Broadway version of A Bronx Tale - the Musical, and Raguso regularly gives back to his community through food sponsorships at the local senior center, his former grammar school, and church.

15. Hector Canonge, FF Alumn, at The Queens Museum, Flushing Meadows Park, NY, Oct. 21

Hector Canonge, FF Alumn, performs in "The Weight of Inheritance," LiVEART.US at Queens Museum, October 21, 2 PM

The Weight of Inheritance
LiVEART.US hosted at Queens Museum
Sunday, October 21, 2-5 pm
NYC Building Flushing Meadows Park

LiVEART.US, independent Performance Art initiative hosted at the Queens Museum, continues with its Fall 2018 season with the presentation of the program "The Weight of Inheritance" featuring the work of artists whose work challenge physical, psychological, and geographical boundaries.

This month's program, co-organized by Lisa Crossman, curator of the Fitchburg Art Museum in Massachusetts, brings together three artists: Kledia Spiro (Albania-United States), Óscar Gavilán Ortiz (Chile), and Hector Canonge (Argentina-United States) creator of the monthly series. Through various modalities of Performance Art, the artists will explore the concept of inheritance as it relates to gender, class, race, ethnicity, and how these classifications fit within cultural and economic structures (e.g., art history, history, capitalism, politics). With an emphasis on process, they will collectively and individually consider how the body, movement, and objects carry the "weight of inheritance." Since the centrality of the body in performance art makes it a key form and creative instrument that critically engages the idea of inheritance each artist's diverse practice and formative perspectives will enhance the address of "inheritance" and its "weight."

Featured Artists:
KLEDIA SPIRO (Albania-United States), OSCAR GAVILAN ORTIZ (Chile), and HECTOR CANONGE (Argentina-United States).

LiVEART.US is platform established to support and feature works by local, national, and international artists working in Performance Art and its diverse manifestations. Created and organized by interdisciplinary artist, Hector Canonge, LiVEART.US features works where the body, as main instrument for artistic creation and expression, is the catalyst for sensorial experiences, cultural interpretation, and critical reflection. The program's main objective is to further support the creation and presentation of new works in Live Action Art in an environment suitable for reflection and dialogue. LiVEART.US follows and complements the monthly program TALKaCTIVE initiated by Canonge in September 2015. Since its inception in 2016, LiVEART.US has presented the work of artists from diverse cultural backgrounds, ages, gender, and national origin creating a dynamic structure and an international network for the exploration, experimentation and execution of Live Art practices.

16. Dynasty Handbag, FF Alumn, at The Duplex, Manhattan, Oct. 30, and more

Shell Of A Woman
at The Duplex, New York City
October 30th, 9:30 PM
get thine thee tickets
as always, thank you for supporting the finest in feminist failure

Shell of a Woman is Dynasty Handbag's expert powerpoint lecture on the "10 Greatest Works Of Art" according to the internet. Professor Bags will "explain" (make up lies) about the work's origins which naturally devolve into semi-autobiographical/insane narratives peppered with songs, dance numbers and psychedelic inner monologuing. For example, did you know that Picasso's (a man) Guernica is about PETA activists setting free cows from a factory farm on the I5 and the subsequent rebellion of those same cows against their liberators and did you know Jackson Pollock's (also a man) famous sloppy wiggle paintings are representations of wild 90's pasta dishes that were served in a revolving restaurant in Time's Square? plus more true facts plus the pirate classic "Yo Ho Ho It's The Artist Life For Me".

18. Seung-Min Lee, FF Alumn, at NYU Skirball Center, Manhattan, Oct. 26

Hi Friends!
It's October, and I'm excited to be in this collaborative performance at the NYU Skirball Center for Karl Marx's Birthday, with Courtesy The Artists, aka Alex Segade and Malik Gaines (of My Barbarian), Ryan McNamara, Miguel Gutierrez, Alison Kizu Blair, Latasha Nevada Diggs, and Amy Ruhl. The show is a wild multimedia ride and a variety show set in Neo-liberal hell.
Friday October 26, 7:30 PM. Admission is Free, but advance tickets are recommended.

Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop will be showing some of my variable edition screen prints at the E/AB (Editions and Artists Books) Fair, 10/26-28, with some great words written by Vivian Crockett: "Lee’s prints take on many of the principles of her broader practice: working within presubscribed and sometimes self-imposed limits; enacting personas; and exploring slippages, variations, and openings for revealing ourselves anew."

Artist and raconteur, Amy Beecher had me on her art podcast recently, it was fun and chock full of kompromat. I've been told it's a good listen for the studio or a long drive with someone you feel awkward around!

Happy Fall!
