Bushwick: long ago defaced and degraded by "mural style" ads, Bichon Frise shit, bro vomit, and crêpe trucks, we perch on the edge of an almost-imaginary recent past, clinging to an old lease as "postmodern mediterranean" buildings march us shoulder to shoulder towards total erasure. This exhibition briefly stages the melancholy, mortification, embattlement, righteousness, humor and violence of artists who were working in performance art before it became a joke on TV, artists who use "recycled materials" because they are free, artists whose politics, identities, and "socio-ethics" are core elements of practice not marketing tools. 

REMAINING/REMINDING/REMAINS/REMAINDERS is visual works and video by artists who celebrate no "post" (gentrification)(modern)(colonial)(structural), working through ongoing colonial, imperial, and capital-driven histories, leaving remainders of performances, using remains and scraps of materials used for other purposes, providing reminders of what matters.

Empathy Play: Social Health Performance Club

Friday, October 31st 2014

Social Health Performance Club is proud to present "Empathy Play", an evening of performances with artists:

Lorene Bouboushian Zachary Fabri Ian Deleón Geraldo Mercado Rafael Sanchez

The title pays reference to the empathy play that psychologist Piaget described as the pretending to be another person or thing that leads to greater empathy in the development of a child. Operating within a framework of identity politics, "Empathy Play" asks what does it means to make work from another perspective? Is it ok to assume another identity? When does that become offensive co-opting and when is it investigation and "empathy play"? "Empathy Play" marks the first in an extended series of teaser events leading up to culminating exhibition program "Before it’s Over: Identity, Difference and Hegemony" slated for Fall 2015.

Primarily operating as a curatorial entity founded by Ayana Evans, Esther Neff and Elizabeth Lamb, Social Health Performance Club gathers temporary collectives of artists to produce events, exhibitions, and other public art projects. The Club itself is framed as a performance, gathering together as action, understanding social relationships as artistic processes.

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.
