TIME DISTORTION AND THE BODY: Performance Art Exhibition

Thursday, July 24th 2014

july24banner

Durational, looping, dual, excruciatingly precise; presence is maintained and contained to the space but time itself is altered by the tension between the performing body and those witnessing and by physical, psychological, and emotional pain, strength, and focus.

Four performances: Ayana Evans Phillip Fryer A.E. Kingsmill Future Death Toll +++ SPECIAL GUEST!! Uniska the Performance Body, Barney, or who???

BIOS

A.E. Kingsmill: "Since moving to London in 2009 to study I have been exploring its underground scene in tandem with feeding my artistic practice. Here I have been able to cross fertilise queer imagery with fine art aesthetics to create arresting endurance works which solicit the body as a platform and often use dressing as a form of three dimensional surrealist collage. As a recent graduate in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins I have performed at Franko B's Untouchables at Mori and Stien gallery and at Peep Anatomy at Edinburgh Fringe. I have performed at the infamous Torture Garden Club and presented my paper, Pervarts along side Annie Sprinkle at the Performing Porn symposium at Performance Space." http://aekingsmill.carbonmade.com/

Born in Cleveland, but raised on the South Side of Chicago, Ayana M. Evans was given a strong sense of Midwestern American culture, which still influences her art making practices today, either as ideals she challenges or as nostalgia for histories she cannot re-create. After receiving her MFA in painting from Tyler School of Art at Temple University and her BA in Visual Arts from Brown University, Ms. Evans moved to New York City where she now resides as an installation/performance artist and accessories designer. Ms. Evans relational performances and installations collaborate in acknowledging, collecting, and creating evidence of her ‘self’, which is often registered to socio-political context; presented as critical or banal queries that involve her body. http://www.ayanaevans.com/

Philip Fryer (Born 1981, Boston MA) is a Boston based artist who explores concepts of mortality, chaos and order, the body as a circuit, and the omnipresence of sound. He works primarily in performance but also utilizes noise, video and installation in his work. His recent exploration has been focused on using lo-fi technologies such as circuit bending and cassette tape loops, both as individual pieces and as elements of performances. Philip is a co-founder of The Present Tense, an initiative that has organized performance events since 2005 and has exhibited the work of over 200 artists. He as also been a member of the Boston based dark ambient project TOOMS since 2012, and performs under the solo moniker Moondrawn. http://PhilipFryer.com

Forged from the figurative beauty that dance and movement provides, FUTURE DEATH TOLL introduces movement, light, sound, rope, markers, fire, sweat, haircuts, phone calls, and flags as a metaphorical stand-in for issues like mortality, death, diseases, prison as a corporation, intellectual property rights, bdsm, and subjective destitution. Pondering questions like: how do we talk about performance art? how can we all hear each other? is silence important? how far does our voice reach? how can we make performances with people not in the same room (would that also work for several performers in several different places)? how can this engage the public? what’s the most minimal amount of material required to conceptually encapsulate the relevant point? how are we going to schedule and choreograph all of this? So in attempt to find some answers FUTURE DEATH TOLL has been writing software that allows for transparent multimedia collaboration amongst a small community of collaborators both near and far. Answers become fodder for group collaboration and idea exchange through tools like open forum discussion, a/v recordings, and video chat. Reading poetry together provides a preemptive meditation that does not exemplify any individual. Black trash bags, heavy breathing, sweat, hair clippers are objects of ephemera & appropriated context; which may or may not be (or become) transcendental; which may or may not be well crafted; which may or may not really exist. http://f-dt.com/

What is "experimental" music? Part 1

Tuesday, June 3rd 2014

What is "experimental" music?

The term "experimental" often denotes someone consciously toying with the paradigms of their medium and the expectations of their audience.

Panoply hosts 5 music artists which could fall into this category, experimenting with traditional instruments, electro-acoustics, multi-media, spoken word, and the body. The night will close with a talk-back about the meaning of "experimental" as it relates to each artists' practice.

INCEN•DIARIO, a project of GIRÓN

Thursday, May 22nd 2014

INCEN•DIARIO is an ongoing, traveling event series of both live and video performance art. The curation process includes an open call and select commissioned works. Each exhibition features pieces that communicate labour and physical struggle as a gateway to fantasy and the fantastic. In an art/youth culture that largely tends to veer away from politically-charged and activist work, INCEN•DIARIO exists as an opportunity to showcase artists who are working with radical ideas and addressing the current state of affairs, rather than using their practice as a means to escape it.

Join us at Panoply Performance Lab to witness work by the following artists. We will have beer and INCEN*DIARIO's jalapeño margaritas available for a donation.

$5 suggested donation at the door (all proceeds will be distributed equally among artists and event workers).

INCEN•DIARIO is an ongoing, traveling event series of live art and video-performance. The curation process includes an open call and select commissioned works. INCEN•DIARIO exists as an opportunity to showcase artists who are working with radical ideas and creating revolutionary performances. This instance of INCEN•DIARIO continues in the spirit of the first. The work addresses political issues, injustices, gender roles, historical incidents with lasting effects, current events, class warfare, and so on. The pieces selected for INCEN*DIARIO II incorporate elements of fitness, stamina, repetition, and endurance as a means to communicate labour and physical struggle as a gateway to the fantastic.

Future Death Toll - $0.00‰

Friday, November 29th 2013

6am - 6pm 6min intervalz FUTURE DEATH TOLL (F-DT) is a multidisciplinary collective creating work that circumvents the normal bounds that geographic locations and physical media impose on an art form. In a society where choice and personal privacy are increasingly under attack, the struggle for personal empowerment has become the pulled lynchpin to the derailment of human evolution. By confronting and harnessing technology we hope to create tools to orientate our post-evolutionary selves.

F-DT is a throbbing mess of noise.
