Big, Dead, Rotting, Silly Rabbit

  #
So here's what other art collectives are doing! check out this article that came my way via Nayiri, from the New York Times (Nov. 6, 2005)


Gelatin, a Viennese art collective, comprised of Ali Janka, Florian Reither, Tobias Urban and Wolfgang Gantner have created a 200 ft long and 20 ft high stuffed pink bunny that is laying atop a hill in the northern region of Italy. 

"It's rotting away and the intestines are running out of its side, but it's really sweet," Mr. Janka said.  It's especially nice if you're interested in the way things rot: grass has sprouted through the rabbit's knitted skin, it's beginning to ooze a brown liquid, and animals have foraged inside. Decay, it seems, is the whole point. "You climb upon the rabbit and feel like a maggot in its flesh," Mr. Janka said. "And then you are so happily transforming into a fly, and floating away."

Any ideas, anyone?

Dispatx Art Collective

  #




Dispatx Art Collective are pleased to announce the publication of our fourth edition - Abandonment. This edition contains 14 works comprising narrative and poetry, essay, photography, oil painting and sculpture, and video.

To speak of abandonment suggests a withdrawal or relinquishment of influence, the exposure of a physical or social structure to the dereliction of time or a cessation of protection. It can also describe a state in which one is given over to forces beyond oneself – the extreme highs and lows of the human condition. Above all, the act of abandonment implies transfer – something orphaned is passed to another controlling agent, something is gained.

The editorial discusses each of the works in detail : in addition, all archive issues can now be searched by work title, description, and artist details. For more details, come to www.dispatx.com

The Little Bang Theory

  #

FRANK PAHL (www.frankpahl.com) is one of the most distinctive and charming voices in contemporary American music. He has received numerous awards, grants, and residencies for his innovative compositions using homemade automatic instruments. Inspired by the works of Trimpin and Pierre Bastien, Pahl began to delve deeply into the creation of automatic instruments, using these instruments as the fundamental foundation of his compositions. His work has included pieces for automatic string quartet, automatic doorbell quartet, and bicycle quartet. Pahl has received over 60 commissions for theater, film and dance and his music appears on over 60 releases. His latest band, Little Bang Theory, is named after the essay of the same title by the improvising musician Frederic Rzewski. Rzewski describes an approach to music well suited to improvisation. Basically each note can be seen as a little bang, with the possibility of introducing a new universe of music. Though the band performs on toy instruments the music runs the gamut from improvisation to toypop to soundtrack-inspired music...not easy to describe...best to see. Toy Suite #2 was made possible by a 2005 Meet the Composer grant.


Frank Pahl's Little Bang Theory with special guest Nick Schillace.
Sunday, November 13 at the University of Michigan Museum of Art
8pm - Free!
This show is sponsered by UMMA and WCBN.

NICK SCHILLACE (www.nickschillace.com) is a Detroit area composer, teacher, and musicologist exploring what it means to be an American musician. In 2002 he completed a graduate thesis on the late guitarist John Fahey, and utilizes Fahey's self-described style of syncopated "American Primitive" fingerstyle guitar as the foundation for his own technique. This style, based on early forms of blues, folk, and old-time music, provides the perfect foundation for larger and more expansive musical compositions incorporating a wide range of his own idiosyncratic influences. He has been touring extensively both locally and nationally since releasing his debut acoustic instrumental album "Box Canyon" in June 2005. He also writes and performs with the groups indoorpark and Big Lake Trawler.

"Box Canyon is a collection of nine pensive and frequently
beautifully played songs for acoustic guitar"
- Steve Byrne,  Detroit Free Press

“Nick paints melodies as a painter . . . his techniques
are solid and the music is engaging. He has his own signature.”
-Henk te Veldhuis . . . Bridge Guitar Reviews

“ . . . inspired melodic evolutions. recommended.”
-Gerald Van Waes . . . Psychedelic Folk

“Nick Schillace's solo acoustic guitar music is propelled by a command
of the traditional and fueled by an expression of a truly original voice."
-Jon Moshier, music coordinator/on-air host WDET-FM Detroit Public Radio

DESTRUCTED

  #
Ran across this PDF art / design mag from Hamburg  today:



Destructed



"DESTRUCTED.INFO IS AN ART AND DESIGN MAG IN .PDF FORMAT.

IT IS RELEASED QUATERLY AND EACH ISSUE DEALS WITH ANOTHER TOPIC.

The purpose of destructed.info is to enable the interplay of all participants of the Destructed project, to make available a place for interaction. Participants are not exclusively banded together by the actual output, or act, rather remain in a continuous state of collaboration. The implicit idea of a network is by no means a novelty. Nevertheless it is not limited to its pure functionality, but is intended to create a welcome and inspirational space for artists."

Ryan Spencer Reed- Hands Of A Displaced Sudan

  #


The photos of Ryan Spencer Reed are on display at the Jackson Symphony Orchestra Gallery in Jackson Michigan.  They are also available to view at www.groupM35.com/reed.

"Genocide begins, however improbably, in the conviction that classes of biological distinction indisputably sanction social and political discrimination." Andrea Dworkin

When French philosopher Albert Camus wrote, "A trial cannot be conducted by announcing the general culpability of a civilization. Only the actual deeds which, at least, stank in the nostrils of the entire world were brought to judgment," he had not lived long enough to witness a shift in the priorities of nations.

With instant communication from anywhere on earth and dedicated journalists willing to stand in harms way, how can it be suggested that "the stank" of Sudan is not in the nostrils of even the most semi-conscious citizen of the world? Mr. Camus could not have been aware of the extent to which the pursuit of the world's resources would require focus that discounts the value of cultures and people. This misplaced priority and the recognition of governments who assist those in power, fuel the machine that serves to distract from the collateral damage of the collectors of such wealth.

Hurricane Benefit This Monday

  #

There will be a Hurricane Relief Benefit at Lansing's Temple Club this Monday, September 12. Lansing musicians are donating their time and talents to raise much-needed funds for our people in New Orleans who have lost so much. 100% of the proceeds from the door will go to Red Cross efforts to transport, feed, clothe, and shelter the thousands affected by this national disaster. If you're in town, please come out and support this effort -- it's sure to be a night of great music, but let's remember the seriousness of the situation and our responsibility to help our neighbors in Louisiana who've been hit so hard. Give generously.

The show starts at 8:00 pm.  The line-up includes John Wesley Harding Overdrive, the Failers, The Gentleman Callers, The Hop-Ups, Eric Kelly and the Dirty Johns, The Pantones, Mike Vasas and The Beasts of Burden, Firewheel Handshake, Hall & Morgan, and Stephen Leonard.  Special thanks to Joel from The Gentleman Callers for getting Stargrazer LLC involved with the poster design, and to Sam Rose (of the superb Wanderjahr) for being the local sparkplug for Katrina benefit concerts in Lansing.

"02890" Bankley Gallery Show

  #
02890

An exhibition of nine emerging graduate artists based in Belfast. ‘02890’ is a mixed bag.

The artist’s works are not bound to one another; rather they point in differing directions, addressing contemporary subjectivity.

They demonstrate how societies structures and codes are embodied in the urban environment and the vulnerability of the individual played out through a complexity of narratives, sounds and images.


10th September to the 30th September 2005

Private View Friday 9th September 7-9 pm
Open Saturday 10th 12 till 4pm

Other times by appointment on:
07773 369 465 (24hrs in advance)

Bankley Studios Gallery

re-title

  #

I found this interesting website:

Re-title.com is a website for the active community of professionals working in contemporary art. This includes artists, artist-run project spaces and curatorial projects as well as the emerging, young and established contemporary art galleries.  It enables artists and galleries to broaden their connections in contemporary art and communicate to a larger audience.



Though registration (a personal webpage and newsletters) costs about $50/year (!), it's a good way of checkiing out what other artists are doing across the globe, however limited it is so far (currently only a handful of South Africans are listed for the entire continent of Africa).

Dispatx Art Collective :: Scar as Sign

  #




Dispatx Art Collective are pleased to announce the publication of our third edition - Scar as Sign. The works making up this issue explore the theme in a diverse manner, confronting concepts from personal experience and showing their significance in a much broader sense.

Our bodies, relationships and environments are defined by information built up over time, as if there were an implicit will governing what should be preserved. Through dislocations in the storage process, wounds can be generated, and attempts to erase these wounds from our memories give rise to scarring. In their turn, lasting scars are then converted into objects of great significance. To talk of these significations is to talk not only of the object itself but also of all that it signifies. Human memory is thus made up of a tension between defects and the processes undertaken to hide them.

The edition is made up of 13 works in various media including photography, sculpture, sound and poetry. It is the result of 4 months' collaborative development of the theme by 17 different artists, and can be seen at www.dispatx.com

Arirang...Song of Hope

http://www.lansingcitypulse.com/050706/stories/bird.asp

The
Hope Borbas Okemos Library will host the korean brush painting of Hyung-Kook Lee during the month of July.  The opening reception will be Sunday, July 10 from 1-4pm. 

"Ever since the Industrial Revolution, human beings have lived in material abundance.
Matters...as they became abundant, they've caused not a few ill effects.
The unlimited competitions, the loneliness in the crowd, the loss of humanity, the innumerable accidents and crimes, and the dangerous trend to take life lightly...


The modern people-- those who were born as natural beings, and keep in the giant artificial concrete structures their dreams of grey-- where shall the find their true haven?

Religions, the strong will of human beings, searching for the tranquil state of mind-- can any of these be a substitute for it?

Found!

  #

(SCENE) Metrospace in partnership with Found Magazine announces the opening of its newest exhibition, "FOUND!" which will be unveiled on Wednesday, March 30.  "FOUND!" explores the recovery and reuse of objects that have been lost, misplaced, discarded or left behind.

Local and national artists participating in "FOUND!" use found materials in unique ways to construct their artwork.  Los Angeles native Kelly Lynn Jones uses fabric and collage to create illustrations.  Scott Hocking of Detroit created his art piece using recovered negatives that he found in an abandoned house.  Ann Arbor based Davy Rothbart and Found Magazine have become an international phenomenon over the past year. Rothbart will share numerous amazing finds that strangers have sent in from across the globe. Doug Coombe of Ann Arbor will use photographs of abandoned warehouses and buildings in Detroit, evoking the beauty found in destruction.  The Portland, Ore. based Suite B Artist Collective employed a search, recovery, and create cycle to make art through found images and objects.  The Suite B members participating in "FOUND!" Include East Lansing natives Jen Kruch and Josh Kermiet, as well as Oregon's James Boulton, and Corey Lunn.
