The ATOA Programming Committee continually reviews proposals for future panels. If you have an idea for a panel that you would like the committee to consider, please post your suggestion here.

TATTOO >""I""<


Post #: 154

Do a talk on Tattoo art.
You can describe Classic (Mona Lisa) to Flash on Flesh.

You can converse about the cross cultural lines
that have been crossed over the last 10 years.
From Polynesian, Japanese, Ainu people
to American eagles & Harley.
From erotic to colorful cartoon dreams.
The Celtic Pics were noted by Roman officers during the
ocupation of the British Isles.

How about current artists orgs like
NurtueArt, RidgeStreet Gallery, Pierogi,
or Victory Hall artists from Jersey City.
People actively, currently, creating and showing.
Striving for an artist community.

One thing I like is the time and dedication
in making arts & crafts at the County Fair.

Nothing like seeing Macaronni art
or an Elvis face made of thousands of glued
rice kernels or seeds.

This is the kind of art you can bring your whole
family to see and not be embarressed.

I have some ! A nice wood grain panel would go well in the kitchen. Although I like a half tile half painted wall.
Unless you mean ivory panels for the living room window?
I'd go to Bed-Bath-&-Beyond for some nice panels.
"Atoa panels" are they a Hawaiian design ? I just love
exotic patterns from foreign contries.

Since Molly Barnes hails from El Pueblo de Los Angeles
maybe she could bring a little west coast Chicano
flay-va to Nueva York.
Like an October "Dia de los Muertos" panel discussing the beautiful and powerful spiritual alters created for departed loved ones.
Or Molly could showcase paintings from Olivera Street. Pottery made with a deep Aztec pride.
Or maybe a discussion of painter Freida Kalho and her haunting self portraits. Diego Rivera and the power struggle he suffered over his Rockefeller commssioned mural.

Los Angeles's "Little Tokyo" is great place to view Manga and Anime. Manga is more than just cartoon artwork. It evolved out of an indigenous tradition of illustrated manuscripts going back a thousand years. Some of the most talented Japanese artists and writers are engaged in producing manga. And two years ago a major manga exhibit was held in Paris drawing attention to the importance of this art form.

When I was a kid we used to go down to the pond and collect Box Turtles and paint them.

That was a good, clean artform that kept us kids out of trouble.
Sometimes I would follow the natural shading of the shell and other times I would be boldly creative and draw a line right across the top. Just go on across ! No stopping me.

Christian artists whose work represent "academic style" as a modern serious artform. Eskimo sculptures are good too.
And maybe some Remington Indian-horse sculptures.
Or something with clouds and peaceful trees and inspirational mountains or sunsets or sunrise or flying birds...just painted with nice colors...that look good over a sofa...or goies good with wood panels and deer heads.

Okay tattoos would work for me as well.
The ultimate reward for the patience & pain.
I hope you cover traditional Japanese artwork/styles.
I enjoy designs based on Asian folklore like dragons, giant snakes and Chinese lions. I've also seen some very cool Bhuddas or other relgiuous figures like Fudomyo -the God of Fire- and Fujin and Raijin -the Gods of Wind and Lightning -and Kannon - Goddess of Mercy.
Tattos in general are a massive outlet of cultural expression.

Notes from a Futurist Point of View - AYOA in the future will be "cyberized". It will exist mainly in cyberspace as well as its on site panels with real human being in the audience. ATOA will have more than one face. When interested parties link onto they will be able to, for a fee, download any of hundreds of the panel discussions in the past. They will also, for a fee, be able to download the weekly poop on the New York, Soho, Chelsea, Williamsburg, Dumbo, and other scenes, digitized by Flashlight with his two assistants using their home digitized movie camera. These weekly segments may include short interviews of gallery dealers and artists during their openings, some gossip, some exterior day and night scenes including Socrates Park, the Noguchi Museum, and so on. The segments after editing would be fun, sexy, and illuminating and informative. People will be able to send in requests for interviews they would like to see. There are thousands upon thousands of artists and interested folks all over the world that have a keen interest in what the fuck's going on. After all, IT'S LIFE! There would be on that site, surprise little vignettes of artists in their homes and studios, a slice of life if you will. Some of the interviews would be by artists of other artists, even friends, all downloaded for a fee. I recently was invited by the presidents of atoa, lynne mayocole to attend a show titled "Tunnel of Love" on Valentine's day in Williamsburge. It was curated by Fran Kornfeld. It was a show of very small works in a very small space, so small, all the visitors could not fit in the gallery at the same time. That was to me, an odd special event that should have been filmed and documented including the musicians playing during that cold cold day. At least some still photos of the event could be put on the site for a FREE download. Other artists all overAmerican and dare i say the world could e mail some stills of their shows and share them with the rest of the global art world. After all, the art world is OUR world. It belongs to artists and sharing is what it's all about. ATOA may even hold panels at different places announced on their web site. This will result in ATOA being awash with fees from downloads and will have an office somewhere with their own servers, their own mini-bus, and Flash will officiate with his two assistants. I dare you to do it! Zach

Refer: 2004-03-21: These weekly segments may include short interviews of gallery dealers and artists during their openings

During a recent panel with AD Coleman ... the concept of gallery dealers and openings would be outmoded.
That in the future people would simply rent digitalized art images. Like a Pay-Per-View boxing match.
That art work would be like transitory televised wallpaper that people would rent by the hour as a backdrop to their
"Oh-So-Chic" cocktail party.
A brief glance. Something to spark a witty Oh-So-Clever line from the host

1) Damion Hurst & his butchered animals.
2) Dr Gunther von Hagens (German artist & anatomist), who strengthens corpses with plastic, skinning them and putting them on show with the internal organs exposed, in a 'celebration' of art and science.
3) Mexican Folk Artists celebrating Dia de los Muertos
4) 3-D artists and/or Anime Vampire-D lovers

Yeah there are more from the Saatchi Sensation exhibition. What about the sculpture who made a life-size mold of his own head. And it was filled with his own blood and then frozen. Decay & Defrost. And maybe find out what Walt Disney looks like frozen stiff waiting for Tinkerbell to wake him.
Or how about a talk on tradional funerary arts.
Cover the burial tombs, statuettes, mummification textiles, frescos, Gold-gilded funerary masks, China, Eygpt, Aztec, Roman, and prehistoric cave drawings. And then throw in a couple of restless spirit and underworld stories.

What is the Lawwww....No Recording Without Permission:

There is no audio or video recording permitted during ATOA panels without advance permission from Lord Anubis.

Graven images - stealing of mortal souls via photography -may be taken, without the use of Mr. Flash.

You will be asked to turn off your equipment and leave if you ignore these rules... including your cell phones and pace maker... And the ancient ones may decide to bring a plague of roaches upon your cramped apartment.

At one time ATOA was threatened with a lawsuit because someone recorded a video of a panel and used it inappropriately. We are therefore forced to prohibit unauthorized recording.

As far as I can tell, this has nothing to do with Lord Anubis, ancient among the gods, but rather with policies set by the Board of Directors of ATOA, ancient among panel discussions.

last Monday's headline:" Fire 'destroys' Saatchi classics

Saatchi's collection also includes Tracey Emin's Bed
Millions of pounds worth of artworks in Charles Saatchi's famous collection are feared destroyed in a warehouse fire.
The warehouse was now "non-existent"."We can't get within 300 yards of the site. We are very upset, absolutely devastated."

At the height of the blaze, more than 50 firefighters were at the scene and 500 people were evacuated.

Momart's clients include the National Gallery, Tate Modern and Britain and Buckingham Palace.

The destroyed warehouse makes up 5-100f the company's storage capacity, she said.

Maybe ATOA should do a censor panel reflecting the rise of German fascist ideas of a pure Germanic Empire and the attempt to purge itself of "degenerate" art.

One form of "degenerate art" would be "Non-Objective Art"
Art created from pure imagination. Not representing any object, figure, or element in nature, in any way; nonrepresentational.

The mistress of Solomon R. Guggenheim - Hilla Rebay was director of the Museum of Non-objective Painting from 1939 to 1952. And with Sol Guggenheim's financial support
moved (saved) some of that "degenerate art" to the USA to a nice car garage that later became the base of the Guggenheim Museum.

Maybe the panel could be held around Mid March ?

Topic: Suggesting Panel
a.k.a. topical subject like a 2005 Guggenheim exhibition
** Art of Tomorrow: Hilla Rebay & Solomon R. Guggenheim **
May 19?August 7, 2005 (dates subject to change)

This is the first exhibition dedicated to Hilla Rebay (1890?1967), one of the founders of the Museum of Non-Objective Painting, the forerunner of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. She was its first curator, director, and educator until 1952, as well as an accomplished artist. Rebay embraced non-objectivity?or non-representation?in art as both a style and aesthetic philosophy.

The exhibition will also reflect the extraordinary collaboration between Rebay and Solomon R. Guggenheim, which resulted in one of the world's finest collections of early twentieth century modernism.

The exhibition is organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in collaboration with Museum Villa Stuck, Munich and Schlossmuseum, Murnau and travels to Germany after its New York presentation.

Post #: 687

Refer: Graarying 7-23 "The exhibition will also reflect the extraordinary collaboration between Rebay and Solomon R. Guggenheim"

Hilla Rebay embraced non-objectivity... and EMBRACED Sol Guggenheim when his wife Irene wasn't around.

At the very least... ATOA should promote a panel that really keeps the SVA students off their cell-phones...
"Heralded as an embodiment of classic elegance and art-deco sophistication, The Essex House is a New York City luxury hotel and the 'Love Nest' of Baroness Hilla Rebay and her head patron Solomon R. Guggenheim."

Did Baroness Rebay believe in theanthropism "all art comes from/thru GOD". Did she ever tamper with artwork to full-fill her own visions of perfection? And was her brother really an SS officer?
Interview with Hilla Von Rebay
Conducted by Bruce Hooten 1966
The interview took was conducted by Bruce Hooten for the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution. Photo: Frank Lloyd Wright shows a model of the Guggenheim Museum to Baroness Hilla Rebay in 1947
Wright received the commission to build the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City in 1943, which would eventually house Guggenheim?s collection which consisted mainly of what curator Hilla Rebay, termed non objective art, that is art which spoke through the universal language of abstract color, line and form. This new art demanded a radically different kind of space and thinking. Here, where Central Park meets the Upper East Side, Wright provided that space in architecture which appears as pure geometry: surface, volume and space.

Or was the design really inspired by a 'snake pit' mental institution located on Roosevelt Island in NY's East River ? Did Wright's visits to this building of madness inspire his genius?

Re: Penny Cent: "Did Baroness Rebay believe in theanthropism 'all art comes from/thru GOD'".

I can't speak for "keeps the SVA students off their cell-phones" but I'd like to hear how many artists feel that way.

I also know many artists that think thru every detail and are still lead by their own instincts of happen-stance.

So - is the God energy trapped inside a hunk of marbel waiting to get out or is the energy inside the human waiting to reshape a hunk of rock that God created in the first place.

How about artist civic duty toward enlightening

Or working toward the social injustice of
displacing people in Brooklyn by RealEstate developers.

One artist very aware of the importance of "SPACE"
was interviewed on FOX News today.
It was sort of a quirky report (smelled of P.R.) about the New York artist that had tooo.. much space - 50,000 sq feet.
And this whole crap about him neeeding to design
and fill the rooms for him and his birds and one cat.
He had to go sooo far as have "artists Friends" loan him objects and furniture...
What about inviting some of these "artists Friends" to use a corner of the "100 rooms" part-time as a studio and share in both the burden of filling the space as well as creative sharing of ideas.
Personally.. there are at least 3 homless guys hanging out in front of the Korean grocery that would make fine live sculptures. Have them hold candleabrum like in Jean Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast" film. It would be a win-win situation. The artist wouldn't have to spend sooo much time straining his brain on how to fill up this huuuge space.. and the homeless people would get a warm place to sleep at night without fear of being knifed.

After the Fox Network's "private tour" the news caster
finally mentioned the "New York artist" (spin buuld up)
and the fact that he had upcoming show at the MArbough gallery for the pieces he didn't have enough room to hang (camera pan to unhung canvas... Oh my! Heart be still!!
Oh the shame.. it has no proper home!!!)
Int. Herald Tribune: "NEW YORK After a long search through high-priced downtown real estate in Manhattan, the artist Hunt Slonem found new quarters to rent that were worthy of his ambition to live large and paint a lot: 50,000 square feet, or about 4,600 square meters, including a terrace, on far West 10th Street."

Inspired by Japanese puppet theater and blending centuries of tradition with his own inimitable style - innovative puppet artist Basil Twist had been obsessed with the rarefied and dying tradition of Japanese dogugaeshi stage mechanism technique ever since he saw it in a black-and-white film years ago.
With a commission from Japan Society, he is finally given the opportunity to delve into its rich intricacies.
After immersing himself in Japanese Awaji Puppet Theater, the origin of what has come to be known as ?bunraku,? and the only modern practitioner of dogugaeshi, Twist unfolds abstract and modern imagery inspired by Japan. This intimate performance features original shamisen compositions created and performed by authorized master musician Yumiko Tanaka. November 17-23, 2004:

Post #: 933

The golden age of animation is marked by the great 1930s and '40s productions of Snow White, Pinocchio, Fantasia and Bambi.
Since the huge success of The Little Mermaid in 1989 and later, The Lion King, animated feature films have roared back into popular culture, culminating in the banner year of 2002 when the Oscars finally designated a category for Best Animated Feature Film.

SVA's students of this unique art form could not be learning at a better time - the second golden age of animation. Technology is taking animators to creative places they could never go before, and SVA is in the forefront of offering best-of-breed, state-of-the-art technology to beginning animators.

SVA has recently built a new stop-motion studio, adding classes in techniques like claymation, and teaching miniature set construction and design. Students have access to the same equipment they'll use as working professionals, like Video Lunch Box, Pro Tools and related effects software. Each computer in our digital compositing lab has its own scanner, enabling our students to work independently.

SVA is considered a primary source of animation talent for both coasts. Our graduates work at Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks skg, Blue Sky Studio and Nickelodeon.

SVA students learn from more than 30 directors, animation and special effects artists, character designers and writers. Legends and prominent animators like Ralph Bakshi (Lord of the Rings, Fritz the Cat), Bill Plympton (Mutant Aliens, The Tune) and Yvette Kaplan (Beavis and Butthead Do America, Ice Age) are here to give you instruction, feedback and to nurture your artistic vision. A recommendation from a faculty member can lead to an interview for a job; you take it from there.

The greatest gift an education at SVA gives you is the chance to find out who you are.
By teaching you to be a total animator, a tech-savvy storyteller, we make sure you'll be ready !

that surrealism is the only art form that focuses on message rather than the work itself isnt that what art is about?

Art Sake



Post #: 1314

candice jeanette gough,

Surely the early forms of art, from ancient times to the 19th century focused on message. Relatively recently artists became interested in art which conveyed impressions, or expressions, rather than messages.

The surrealists, although they seem to depict "messages," have found a way to express the subconscious
not by avoiding objective images, but by recontextualizing them. Their "messages" are surreal.

Thus, it seems to me, surrealism is more in the camp of the impressionists, expressionists, and dreamers rather than the realists and story tellers.

You're right we're missing it. ATOA would love to have artists of the stature of the Christos speak on every panel. Unfortunately ATOA does not have the funding to pay panelists, so we rely on the generosity of
artists who appear for free, like the Christos, for our best panels.

If you can persuade a famous artist to speak for free at ATOA, you can help us to avoid "missing it." If you can contribute to an endowment to help fund us, you can help us to avoid "missing it."

If not, try to have sympathy for our difficulties in being an under funded non-profit presenting the best panels we're offered.

Asking "Who" are the famous artists?

Thomas Kinkade !!! He is known as "The Painter of Light".
Famous for his "Kinkade glow" he has enormous popularity as a published artist. Some say he is the foremost American living impressionist painter.

Even people who have never had much of an interest in art before find themselves captivated by Thomas Kinkade's wonderfully warm and inviting visions of quaint, cozy cottages and sophisticated, impressionistic cityscapes that are among the artist's signature subjects.

ATOA should do a whole panel on this famous AMERICAN artist.

famous = absolute populism

"Populism: Artists Reflect This Contemporary Political and Cultural Phenomenon" 2005-04-29 until 2005-08-28
Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, , NL

The Populism project tries to formulate concrete spaces for experience, reflection, and discussion linked to a contemporary political and cultural phenomenon that is as complex as it is widespread.

Many different things can be called populism for very good reasons. We may not necessarily agree on the meaning of the term populism. And maybe the term populism should not necessarily have only one meaning. The usefulness of a term with different meanings resides in the fact that it may hint at family resemblances between different phenomena called populism. Therefore, in any project on populism, it might soon appear that the contributors ? artists, academics, writers and other intellectuals ? will use the word in many different ways." Dieter Lesage, ?Populism and Democracy?, 2005, in The Populism Reader

There is little doubt that populist movements gain large parts of their persuasive power from their ability to play on affects and desires that are supposedly exempt from the procedures that mark official democratic politics.

Key questions are how forms of populism ? whether left wing or right wing, progressive or reactionary ? promote themselves and their quest for mass appeal through a stylistic and aesthetic consciousness.

Populism includes new works and projects by around 40 international artists and artist groups, bringing together challenging works in a multitude of artistic strategies. The exhibitions take place in parallel at the following venues:

The Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius. Opening April 8 through June 4 National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, Oslo. Opening April 15 through Sep 2 Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. Opening April 29 through Aug 28 Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt a.M. Opening May 10 through Sept 4

Refer back to statement - "ATOA would love to have artists of the stature"

Orson Welles's film F for Fake was great and should be screened at an SVA panel. Art forgers like Elmyr de Hory have many, many paintings in world famous museums.
This leads to the question "what makes great art". And just as important "what makes famous artists".
In Welles's film "F for Fake"; Welles reflects on the fate of Elmyr's talents absorbed by his own forgeries.
Elmyr suppressed his ?real? talent. He had an amazing eye but he lacked (or feared?) his own vision.

The Age of the Outsider : AdBusters Magazine
Systematically Distorted Information
#51 Jan - Feb 2004

In times like these, artists often serve as mirrors of our culture, offering signposts in the search for meaning. But today?s high-profile artists don?t seem up to the task --

Instead of Picasso?s wrenching Guernica, we get Damien Hirst?s intricate gags: barnyard animals in formaldehyde! Instead of the complacency- bursting chaos of Pollock?s drip paintings, we?re given the majestic yet onanistic films of Matthew Barney ? never allowed to stand alone, of course, but packaged with flashy backstory about his modeling career (J.Crew), football glories (Yale) and rockstar bedmate (Bj?rk).

"Why" outsider art speaks so clearly to this time in history. Why is this art coming of age now?

Having seen such horror and lost so much... "perhaps" we?re witnessing a subtle shift toward a post-ironic age, where earnestness and personal honesty are ascendant and self-congratulatory cleverness is waning. Or maybe we long for creations that from the outset defy the machinations of commodity culture. In a world where advertisers conflate no-excuses thinking and boundaryless living with a new SUV or a pack of cigarettes, those who really do think outside the box offer us an authentic way out. Or perhaps it?s simply that in an era when ?normal? means a chronic case of cultural cognitive dissonance, we need voices that speak from a vantage point that?s less than sane.

If our minds are coming to resemble the world ? its anxiety, disjointedness and instability ? then these artists, attuned to the madness, are now our perfect guides.

These ?outsider? artists are driven by a singular impulse to create; unlike their contemporary art counterparts, their motivations have little to do with securing gallery representation, pulling in grants, selling work or paying off student loans on the obligatory MFA degree.

What they lack in training (MFA Degrees), outsiders make up in raw conviction and an unwillingness to stifle their inner voice.

Topic: Suggesting Panel Ideas: "Nazi Era Provenance"

"From 1933 thru the end of World War II in 1945, the Nazi regime orchestrated a program of theft, confiscation, coercive transfer, looting, pillage, and destruction of objects of art and other cultural property in Europe on a massive and unprecedented scale. Some confiscated objects were sold to fund Nazi activities, while others were retained for the private collections of high-ranking party officials."

"Following the war, tens of thousands of confiscated objects were recovered by the Allies and returned to their countries of origin. Nevertheless, some recovered objects never made it back to their original owners, and other objects were not recovered at all."

"Over the past decade, US museums have recognized that objects appropriated during the Nazi era without subsequent restitution?that is, with neither return of the object nor payment of compensation to the object?s original owner or legal successor?may have made their way into US museum collections in the decades since the war."

"The Dahesh Museum Of Art Celebrates 10 Years In Manhattan"
by Shazia Khan

The Dahesh Museum celebrates 10 years of art by academically trained artists from the 19th and early 20th centuries. NY1's Shazia Khan paints a better picture of the museum's rich history in the following report.

?In the 1940s and 1950s people were pretty busy looking at high modernism like Jackson Pollack or Eve Klein, and they really weren't interested in someone who was painting a classical subject 100 years before,? says Dahesh Museum Director Peter Trippi.

However, Salim Moussa Achi,a Lebanese writer and philosopher who wrote under the pen name Dahesh, recognized the art's worth. During the mid-1900s he traveled through Europe, amassing a rich collection of 19th and early 20th century paintings, sculptures and drawings produced by artists trained in Europe's renowned art academies.

?The pictures were available for not much money, and they were in many cases being sold for their frames,? says Trippi. ?So he knew that, and he was able to buy very smartly at good prices. He was not a rich man by any means.?

Dahesh, which means "inspiring wonder" in Arabic, indeed inspired. He would display the art at his grand house in Beirut and would invite people to view the collection.

?He did rotate the collection to make it interesting, sort of like you do at a museum,? says Trippi. ?He wanted to create a public museum, but that never happened because the civil war broke out in the 1970s and things got very dangerous, and the collection was brought to the United States for safety.?

In 1995, 11 years after Dr. Dahesh's death, the Dahesh Museum of Art was established in Manhattan. ?The Dahesh Collection: Celebrating a Decade of Discovery? runs through September 22nd 2005. Info. @

I suggest a panel on the West Indian American Day Carnival Parade. Many professional photographers have tried to capture the spirit over the years. The colors and textures of the costumes. A celebration thru the hand-sewn costumes designed and created over a period of weeks and some times months.

The history goes way back to the French, Spanish and British colony aristocracy that held big grand and lavish Playing Mascostume balls with feast and small street parades.
Slaves were not permitted to participate.
But after the abolishment of slavery, thousands of freed slaves celebrated by lampooning their former masters and mimicking the dress and behavior of the European people.

Now the "Labor Day Carnival Parade" has grown over the years from thousands of participants and tourists to over 3.5 million people in attendance. It has be come more boisterous and noisy while at the same time getting more colorful and spectacular with magnificent and huge elaborately designed costumes.

Eastern Parkway will show the pride of every Caribbean island on Monday.

Artists are citizens if the world. They ask where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? Paul Gauguin's paintings were influenced by the tropical setting and colourful Polynesian culture. Artists like Andre Derain and Pablo Picasso were inspired by the bold abstract designs of tribal African masks. They used the African culture to refresh their tired styles of traditional European figure painting.

The visual language was re-born and it was good.

Alexi Worth interviews Simon Dinnerstein

Simon Dinnerstein: Paintings And Drawings showcases the impressive and original work (1967-1999) of a significant contemporary American realist. Dinnerstein's style reflects a thoroughly modern eye for abstract design combined with social commentary. This 126-page compendium of his work features 81 color plates (including 3 gatefolds), and 20 black-and-white reproductions on permanent alkaline paper. book: Simon Dinnerstein (Paperback)
by Rudolf Arnheim

Of particular interest for the students and connoisseurs studying the man and his work are the brief, informative essays by Guy Davenport (The Art of Simon Dinnerstein); Miller Williams (Coming to Know Simon Dinnerstein: The Art and the Artist); John Russell (In Dinnerstein's Painting, an Echo Chamber); Robert L. McGrath To See and Be Seen: The Fulbright Triptych of Simon Dinnerstein); Rudolf Arnheim (Pictures of the Lasting World); and Edward J. Sullivan (The Urban View in the Art of Simon Dinnerstein.

Simon Dinnerstein's art reflects his affection for the Northern Renaissance, but also incorporates the modern elements of abstract design and social commentary. This text presents his work, which ranges from still lifes, portraits, landscapes and city views, to a series of nudes.

And... Simon Dinnerstein currently teaches at a private painting atelier located in Brooklyn, NY

Philip Pearlstein
Exhibition Dates:
September 15 - October 22, 2005

Chelsea Art District
541 West 25th Street,

On September 15, 2005, the Betty Cuningham Gallery opened an exhibition of Philip Pearlstein's recent paintings.

The exhibition includes approximately fifteen paintings completed by Pearlstein within the last three years, ranging in size from 24 x 36 inches to 60 x 72 inches.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue
with an essay by art critic and painter, Alexi Worth.

Pearlstein has been exhibiting in New York since his first one-man show in 1955 at Tanager Gallery on East 10th Street.

He is the artist of his generation who understood, and briefly explored, the tenets of the Abstract Expressionists, but whose style and methods of expression led away from the abstract to a more concrete, initialized view of the world and the human body.

It's almost October.

What is the first ATOA panel of the fall 2005 season and
when is it?

Flash Light



Post #: 2248

The first panel of the Fall season is Mark Stevens talking about the Pulitzer prize winning autobiography of de Kooning he co-authored.

That panel is on October 7th at 7 pm, and by-the-way it is mentioned on the current homepage, sorry you missed it there.

I am still waiting for the ATOA office to send me all the details of Fall calendar so I can post them online. Just for the record, I have been diligently trying to get the ATOA office to upgrade to at least 20th century technology so calendar information can appear online sooner. However, I currently still have to wait for the carrier pigeons to arrive, and the ATOA president has informed me that, unfortunately, her dog ate them.

Wow... was the info channelled by the little green spirit guide Miss Absinthe Trenet ?


Of all the painters in that group, de Kooning worked the longest and was the most prolific, creating powerful, startling images well into the 1980s.

The first major biography of de Kooning captures both the life and work of this complex, romantic figure in American culture. Ten years in the making, and based on previously unseen letters and documents as well as on hundreds of interviews, this is a fresh, richly detailed, and masterful portrait.

In the 1980s, as de Kooning slowly declined into what was almost certainly Alzheimer?s, he created a vast body of haunting and ethereal late work.

The hell with the "Pulitzer prize".
Me likie the down-n-dirty reviews !! : "Gossipier than any tabloid, as scholarly as Vasari, luminously illustrated and illuminating as a lightning bolt, Stevens' and Swan's landmark biography is one of the most stunning art books I've seen in seven years of"

"It's a page-turning tale: raised by a mom who beat him with wooden shoes, de Kooning escaped Rotterdam as a stowaway on a freighter and found a second family in New York's rampageous art bohemia. He subsisted on ketchup and booze, and broke through around 1950 with dazzling abstract expressionist canvases inspired by what was in the air: cubism, surrealism, jazz, and film noir."

"de Kooning stubbornly defied purist abstraction with the startlingly quasi-figurative Woman paintings. Stevens and Swan artfully show how much went into these notorious works. De Kooning's Woman is "part vamp, part tramp," a Hollywood pinup girl with push-up bazooms, a dirty joke and a scary goddess based on a Mexican deity to whom hearts were sacrificed. She is also part Mom and part Elaine de Kooning, his artist/muse wife, and the numberless women he juggled."

"Now I finally get what essentially distinguished de Kooning from his rivalrous pals Gorky and Pollock, and more. I also know what de Kooning was like in bed (loud), how he managed to cheat on five steady lovers at a time(different doorbell codes), why he slept drunk in gutters even after he got rich, and how deeply he loved and how coldly he used women.":
--Tim Appelo, Editorial Reviews

To read for yourself - Link thru De Kooning /Stevens & Swan

To: De Kooning: An American Master by Mark Stevens,Annalyn Swan
Edition: Hardcover : Reviews, recommendations, and more:

Distinguished critics Stevens and Swan are indefatigable in their factual chronicling, vivid in their characterization of an immense cast of colorful characters, measured in their psychological interpretations, and sharp in their explications of the visions and politics that drove New York's striving art world from 1926, when the handsome young Dutchman arrived as a stowaway, to his death in 1997. Stevens and Swan tell wild stories about de Kooning's part in the much mythologized Cedar Tavern-anchored, abstract-art heyday, and they cover in painful detail his many affairs and complicated marriage to the vivacious, talented, and pragmatic Elaine.

Well it sounds promising. Maybe not "artists talking on their art" but definiatly not dry academics talking on regurgitated history.

REGARDING:" raised by a mom who beat him with wooden shoes"

I have a pair of Candy Apple Red Fetish Stilettos I would be willing to loan SVA / ATOA for a reenactment to benefit the students on the mental anguish that propels certain artists.
It could be a useful demo... tool.

I like Ed Adler. He's well-versed on "The Beats" and he is very approachable before or after lectures.
Bill Viola and Nam June Paik can be classified as film artists or installation artists. Each has something special to say. Methods of media manipulation. Maybe Viola and Mekas together?

Louise Bourgeois has been a role model to many people I know. Yoko Ono too; but in a different way and not as broad a time period. "Bad Girls of Art" sounds dated and trite.
Wearable Art sounds commercial and gimicky and dated.

Grateful Dead Tie Dye Night ? Retro 60's counter-culture?
Not so heavy on the cute. I could see Wavy Gravy as anti-war dada hippie explaining the Vietnam protest posters. And sadly "The Draft" (retro-pending?). Or how about remebering Leon Golub's work ?

I guess interview John Chamberlain, Louise Bourgeois and Robert Indiana, Fred McDarrah, Mark di Suvero before they join Leon Golub. How many artist role models do you have under 70 ?

Hey gang.. here's an idea !
How about a mixed panel of artists.

David Kandel, renaissance quailty original woodcuts.

Flash Light, Neo-kinelic, Gizmodo-Gadgets and modern video installation.

Harvey Dinnerstein, painter of the human figure

Simon Dinnerstein, affection for the Northern Renaissance figure painting.

Then you can title the panel:
"Kandel, Light and Dinnersteins"

Except... Kandel, David (Strassburg, 1520 - 1592) is kinda a little older than the usual ATOA age bracket for panelist.
But then again.. so is the ancient g_d Lord Anubis.

I have a serious sugestion for March 2006.
"Muse-Fuse" The flip side of Jan's "Drawing from the Live Model"

A panel from the model's point of view. Valuable collaboration explored 50/50 ! Less artistic ego and more giving credit and recognition to the artist's MUSE.
More than just another pretty face passing thru the studio.

Have a panel with contemporary artists like Alexi Worth and
his current male model (portrayed in nebbish sympathetic characterization).
Minerva Durham, Director Spring Street Studio and Human Anatomy art teacher. Minerva has had many, many models come thru Spring Street over the years like Arthur Aviles from the Arthur Aviles Typical Bronx Dance Theatre.
Or have artist and teachers like Burton Silverman, Harvey Dinnerstein, Joe Catuccio and their recent working model. Someone that does more than hold still but actually inspires the students toward capturing humanity.
The panel could cover the mystery of what makes good "chemistry" in a "working" artist/model relationship.
And examine why artists like Pearlstein choose to work so disassociated and abstracted from the nude female figure.

Explore the vulnerability of a standing nude.
Taboos and stereotypes...(aka Hollywood movie Titanic) "Bad Girls of Art ... whatever that means today".
Meerly "Paid by the hour" models or indispensable teacher's aids. Talented artist's models -vs- frustrated performance artists ?

RE: Fall calendar (paper form)..."carrier pigeons to arrive, and the ATOA president has informed me that, unfortunately, her dog ate them."

I reread this posting because the ATOA Fall Calendar still hasn't arrived. The first panel was yesterday and Monday is the Columbus Day Holiday.

RE: "dog ate them". This caused me to reflect...
I also remember the Kali Madonna II & III sculptures (8" x 10" mixed media) displayed on the ATOA summer pages. Sculpture by Lynne Mayocole
? 2005. Hmmm... I see the connection now. An artist that creates images of " Kali " the destructive and creative aspect of God must also influence those around her... even her energetic, watchful, determined, alert, fearless, loyal and obedient dog. Dog must be named Son of Sam-peck-n-paw.

"I look for the edge, using figurative sculpture to find it, and being there walk on it through imagery from the slightly twisted side of humanity," thus Lynne Mayocole describes her multi-media sculpture.

How about an ATOA program on the many contributions of Jewish culture to the artworld.
Many are NYC art teachers, control private charities, foundations, nonprofits that contribute to the arts and cultural education.

Mayor Bloomberg is a good example.

A panel to educate people on the significance of the culture that has spawned many great artists. (too many to mention here). Maybe even examine the significance of current (October 2005) Jewish High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Hopefully becoming more sensitive to the over all culture like the fact Rosh Hashanah began at sundown October 03, 2005.

I attended a walking tour of The Met Museum of Art last Friday evening. It was given by art teacher Andy Reiss. He has a genuine passion for the subject of figurative painting and sketching. The crowd numbered about 30 students and I know the last time he gave a tour and allowed friends of students the number was closer to 90. I mention Andy because he would add a more current view of figurative art to next year's "Drawing from the Model" discussion.
There is a strong rebirth of interest in learning the craft of drawing from the living model and "walk in ateliers" are thriving.

Ruhe examines the abstract and the spiritual sides to Kligman's oeuvre. This controversial and incredibly charming woman has a wild intellect that must be savored.

The book review from the ATOA season opening "de Kooning" panel: "gossipier than any tabloid, as scholarly as Vasari."

Now artists talk moves between the sheets.. of canvas.
Not your parents dry academia.

RE: "Hardly anyone at the Cedar who heard that de Kooning had begun seeing Ruth Kligman could believe it. Or perhaps it was poetic injustice. Kligman was the sole survivor of the car crash that killed Pollock and Kligman?s friend Edith Metzger. In the eyes of most artists, she was the hot young thing who had swooped into the drunken Pollock?s deteriorating life, driving away the painter?s wife, Lee Krasner, and behaving with a va-va-voom flamboyance new to the art world."

DeKooning named a painting for Kligman ("Ruth's Zowie"), and she was the sole survivor of the car crash that killed Pollock.

ART COLOGNE 2005 28 October - 1 November
Quote: "This year, everything's new at ART COLOGNE. That's because Germany's leading art fair is leaving the Rhineside Halls and moving into new halls on the Cologne exhibition grounds. That's probably the most fundamental change the world's oldest art fair has experienced since it was founded in 1967."

Regarding the subject of "Encaustic" art; Danny Simmons had a piece at the Fall 2005 "Gallery D3" show.
Danny Simmons is an artist, curator at the Corridor Gallery and involved with "Rush Philanthropic Arts" exposing a new generation of urban youth to the arts.
He's all around "hands-on" and he can bring a contemporary feel (aka modernity) to an ATOA panel.

Instead of all uptown aka Schomburg Center for Research, artwork of Romare Bearden, Aaron Davis Hall, Jazz Studies @ Columbia, ect... Think Bed-Stuy, Clinton Hill, Society for the Preservation of Weeksville, BAM, or the Spike Lee Theater at LIU for film studies.
OR think contemporary artists with the earned title of simply Painter, Sculptor, Photographer.

Kuddos to brothers Russell, Danny and Joseph Simmons for founding Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation.

Russell Simmons and HBO have created a major TV outlet: Def Poetry Jam. Free expression of the spoken word using poetry, slams, and haiku.

Def Poetry Jam is very sophisticated and slowly revealing a new generation of WordSmith.

GUEST SPEAKER: Sina Najafi, editor-in-chief of Cabinet Magazine

Sina Najafi is the editor of "Letters from Mayhem," co-editor (with Sasha Archibald) of "Presidential Doodles" (Basic Books, fall 2006), and editorial director of "American Photographs" (Cabinet and Princeton Architecture Press, fall 2006). Najafi has also curated several exhibitions, including "Philosophical Toys" (Apex Art, summer 2005), "Odd Lots" Revisiting Gordon Matta-Clark's Fake Estates" (White Columns and Queens Museum of Art, fall 2005; in collaboration with Jeffrey Kastner and Frances Richard), and the traveling exhibition "The Paper Sculpture Show" (in collaboration with Matt Freedman and Mary Ceruti).

Cabinet is an award-winning quarterly magazine of art and culture that confounds expectations of what is typically meant by the words "art," "culture," and sometimes even "magazine." Like the 17th-century cabinet of curiosities to which its name alludes, Cabinet is as interested in the margins of culture as its center. Presenting wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary content in each issue through the varied formats of regular columns, essays, interviews, and special artist projects, Cabinet's hybrid sensibility merges the popular appeal of an arts periodical, the visually engaging style of a design magazine, and the in-depth exploration of a scholarly journal. Playful and serious, exuberant and committed, Cabinet's omnivorous appetite for understanding the world makes each of its issues a valuable sourcebook of ideas for a wide range of readers, from artists and designers to scientists and historians. In an age of increasing specialization, Cabinet looks to previous models of the well-rounded thinker to forge a new type of magazine for the intellectually curious reader of the future.

Muse Fuse was conceived to encourage the pooling of resources to create a professional support and networking association for emerging artists who, even in the art beehive of New York City, frequently struggle in relative solitude and isolation. Hosted by artist and NA Board of Directors member Karen Marston, Muse Fuse is envisioned as a creative salon where artists, curators and other arts professionals meet to exchange ideas and information, discussing everything from the philosophical to the practical.

About Muse Fuse's Studioforum:
Studioforum is a work in progress. Relative strangers critique work and artists rely on participants feedback, both positive and negative. Experience diversity of artistic strategies and relative experience. The essential quality of Studioforum will be a lively, civil, and straightforward response to the hosting artist?s work. It is hoped that overtly curatorial or careerist intent will be avoided-rather, the goal is informal- just artists talking shop.

This is a splendid idea !!

Firstly an authuor from across the pond will help make an inmpression on young students using the provincial concept of what's good for them.

Secondly it will aid in maintaining the consistanty of the "Authors on Art" series.

And Thirdly the anguished expressionist work can be found in any major poster shop ! A uniting symbol of the current political and economic and environmental climate.

Review @ Yale Press : "With unlimited access to tens of thousands of Munch?s papers, including his letters and diaries, Prideaux offers a portrait of the artist that is both intimate and moving."

Yo! THE ARTIST currently known as : "Prince Lightning" is a rap-star for the British countryside !!!

Prince Lightning is a romantic phantom. He is the pop-cultural symbol of the true black soul man. A 3-dimensional being.

He reflects the romantic notion of black culture. And he represents the desire for an alternative position to mainstream OF cultural influences.
BUT at the same time, because he is sourced from the limited iconography of the mainstream, he remains a flawed and tragic construction.

Regarding "modernity" - check out the harsh words Jerry Saltz has for MOMA'S modernity.,saltz,69970,13.html:

QUOTE: "Yet the more I go to the new MOMA?and I've been there over 50 times since it reopened a year ago this week?the more I think this crown jewel is becoming a beautiful tomb. At MOMA the unruly juice of art history, the chaos, contradiction, radicality, and rebellion, are being bleached out. Instead, we're getting the taming of modernism?modernism as elevator music."

QUOTE "At MOMA everything has been civilized, neutralized, tidied up, and pruned to death. Even the giants are ill served. So far on the fourth and fifth floors there hasn't been a single Modigliani, Rouault, or Soutine, no Toulouse-Lautrec, Balthus, Hartley, or Alice Neel."

QUOTE: "MOMA has become a machine whose primary purpose is to impart an aura of respectability to objects that are inherently unorthodox and anti-authoritarian. It is engaged in a ruthless cleansing operation meant mainly to reinforce the canon."

QUOTE: "For an idea of how safe MOMA is playing it, compare it to Tate Modern, the Walker Art Center, L.A.'s MOCA, UCLA Hammer, Chicago's MCA, or even the Studio Museum in Harlem and Philadelphia's little ICA. All these institutions feel light-years ahead of MOMA when it comes to dynamism, vision, and nerve."

"Erasing Boundaries Between Artists & Conservators"

"If questions of conservation are more your thing, check out this lecture at the Getty. Erasing Boundaries Between Artists and Conservators How does the interaction between artist and conservator affect creativity? At what point does a conservator cross the line and become a studio assistant? Drawing on her personal experiences with the Wyeth family of artists as well as various outdoor muralists, Joyce Hill Stoner, director of the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation, examines the dilemmas facing a conservator working with living artists.

Panel Discussion: Force of Nature: The Art and Activism of Frank Moore

Tuesday, December 6, 7 - 9pm
SVA Amphitheatre
209 East 23rd Street, 3rd floor

Visual AIDS and SVA, in partnership with the Gesso Foundation, present: Force of Nature: The Art and Activism of Frank Moore, a panel and conversation celebrating the late New York-based painter who was a pioneering advocate for individuals with HIV/AIDS, both in his own artwork and leadership role in Visual AIDS.

Scheduled to coincide with World AIDS Day Thurs, Dec. 1 .

The panel event will take place on Tuesday, December 6, at 7pm, at the School of Visual Arts's Ampitheater, NYC.

An internationally-recognized artist whose works are found in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, Frank Moore was also a longtime board member of Visual AIDS and a collaborating member of a group of artists who conceived and launched the [Red] Ribbon Project, which in 1991 created one of the most enduring symbols of AIDS awareness.

Moore's paintings - luminous scenes juxtaposing natural and human elements to explore social and environmental concerns - have been the subject of numerous gallery and museum exhibitions throughout the U.S.

The program at SVA brings together friends and contemporaries to celebrate Frank Moore's legacy as an artist, activist, public intellectual and patron of the arts.

Nick Debs will give a slide presentation of Moore's works, and designer and member of the original Artists' Caucus at Visual AIDS Marc Happel, along with artists Michael Combs, Mary Jo Vath and Tom Woodruff will participate in a panel discussion moderated by Amy Sadao, director of Visual AIDS.

Force of Nature: The Art and Activism of Frank Moore is a fund-raiser to benefit Visual AIDS's Frank Moore Archive Project.

Founded in 1988, Visual AIDS increases public awareness of the AIDS pandemic. Through the Frank Moore Archive Project, Visual AIDS historicizes the effects of AIDS on the art community and offers direct, professional services to artists living with HIV.

Panelists are:

Michael Combs, a sculptor who worked as Frank Moore's studio assistant.

Nick Debs, Director Emeritus of Visual AIDS and principal of Debs & Co.

Marc Happel, a designer who has created costumes for Kiki & Herb, among other theater and performance artists.

Mary Jo Vath, a painter and faculty member in the BFA Illustration and Cartooning Department at SVA.

Thomas Woodruff, a painter and illustrator, and Chair of SVA's BFA Illustration and Cartooning Department.

Suggested admision: $10; SVA students, free. All proceeds will be donated to Visual AIDS to benefit artists living with HIV.

Here's a panel idea = ART: paths of beliefs and tolerance (Atheism during the Bush Admin)

World, stars, sun and the rest of our universe show existence of creative powers and thru the interpretations of art show its power to move the human heart.

Isaac Asimov, "On Religiosity", Free Inquiry magazine: "Although the time of death is approaching me, I am not afraid of dying and going to Hell or (what would be considerably worse) going to the popularized version of Heaven. I expect death to be nothingness and, for removing me from all possible fears of death, I am thankful to atheism."

H. Havelock Ellis: "And it is in his own image, let us remember, that Man creates God."

George H.W. Bush, as Presidential Nominee for the Republican party; 1987-AUG-27: "No, I don't know that Atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered as patriots. This is one nation under God." 1

Dan Barker, Author: "Losing Faith in Faith: "I have something to say to the religionist who feels atheists never say anything positive: You are an intelligent human being. Your life is valuable for its own sake. You are not second-class in the universe, deriving meaning and purpose from some other mind. You are not inherently evil -- you are inherently human, possessing the positive rational potential to help make this a world of morality, peace and joy. Trust yourself."

The story of an aging former Life Model.. now merely a faded queen.

For one night only she sits among artists at a place of honor.. a panel discussion exploring their "day of art". Her face is a combination of BOTOX? , beeswax, and Talcum Powder corpse white. She stares.. not at the audience.. but thru them to another era.. long ago.

Joe Gillis (Barnaby Ruhe ) as an aging artist; but still 30 years her junior feels pity for this once "goddess" and allows her 15 minutes to speak on her lost fame.

Bill Rabinovitch plays the former director Max von Mayerling who desperately trys to preserve Miss Desmond's fragile illusions.

Seven contemporary Chinese photographers, most of whose work has never before been seen outside of China, are the focus of the dialog between critic and author, A. D. Coleman and ATOA board chairman, Doug Sheer. There will be a screening of selections from these photographers' projects: Chen Yuangzhong, Hua Er, Jia Yu Chuan, Li Nan, Yang Yan Kang, Yu Haibo, and Zhang Xinmin. They are mostly from south China, many of them based in the city of Shenzhen. Coleman encountered their work and met a number of them personally during two trips to China over the past six months. The subject matter of their projects includes the transvestite demimonde, rural Catholicism, matrilineal culture, prostitution, and the urban nightclub and music scene.

Under the subject film as an artform - or - sub-genre: Fantasy Film aka animation as a serious art form - TCM dedicated 4 Thursdays (Jan.) to the work of director Hayao Miyazaki.

On average Most "coming-of-age" films are told thru the eyes of boys and have become overly familiar. Hayao Miyazaki makes his protagonist female; but keeps the feelings and emotions displayed universal.


Profession: screenwriter, animator, director, executive, storyboard artist, editor, producer

TCM: "Long acknowledged as the preeminent animator and director in Japan, Hayao Miyazaki remained a cult figure to American devotees of "manga" (Japanese comic books) and "anime" (Japanese animated features) until the 1999 US release of his undisputed masterwork "Princess Mononoke" (1997)...."

Here's a plot for a film within a film.

Re: "Many of the stories about Kim Jong Il's eccentricities and decadent life-style are exaggerated, possibly circulated by South Korean intelligence to disredit the Northern regime. Kim Jong Il is a movie fanatic, and is said to hav a collection of over 20,000 films. In 1978, in order to advance the North Korean film industry, he ordered North Korean agents to abduct the famous South Korean movie director Shin Sang Ok and his ex-wife, actress Che Eun Hui, and kept them for eight years while making them produce propaganda films. During that time, the two became very well acquainted with Kim Jong Il, and after escaping in 1986, they wrote a book exposing his decadent lifestyle.

The concentration and maintenance of political power in the hands of one man over a period of decades defines the political system in North Korea. Kim Jong Il was born into this system and is in a sense a prisoner of it himself. He cannot reform the system without undermining his own legitimacy. The only rational option for him has been to uphold the system. Economic and political reforms would let loose a tidal wave of resentment against the police state, and would aggravate rather than improve the economic situation."

Korean sensibility?


I open up my heart to you.

Koreans feel that connectedness in life is more important and meaningful than the preservation of privacy.

a.k.a. good-bye Mr. Paik


Post #: 3387

World-famous Korean-born video artist Paik Nam-june, who first realized the potential for video as an artist's medium, died on Sunday (Jan. 29) night, his family announced.

He was 74 years old.

Born in Seoul in 1932, Paik was first a musician. Paik studied music history, art history and philosophy at the University of Tokyo, where he graduated with a dissertation on Arnold Schoenberg. He went to Germany in 1956 to continue the study of music history at the University of Munich.

Paik is also known as a member of the Fluxus movement _ a loosely related group of artistic rebels including Joseph Beuys, Yoko Ono and John Cage, who in the 1960s wanted to not only transform art, but also the definitions of music, dance, poetry and theater. Paik's "Tribute to John Cage" (1973) involved a stage-set presenting a chaotic jumble of sounds, video images and a chicken.

Park since the 1960s has become internationally renowned as a pioneer of video art. He is famous for his constructions with numerous TV sets that comment on the meaning of the medium and how we see the world through it. Work titles include "Video Buddha," (1976) "Real Fish/Live Fish" (1982) and many variations on odd-looking robots made of TVs, including one that may defecate.

"Art is just fraud. You just have to do something nobody else has done before," he famously declared during an interview with a Korean newspaper.

Jessica Hagedorn is one of the premiere Filipina American writers.

Jessica Hagedorn is a novelist; poet; performance artist; author, Four Young Women, Gangster of Love and Dogeaters, which was nominated for the National Book Award; editor, Charlie Chan is Dead: An Anthology of Contemporary Asian American Fiction.

------------- / RE:" Also in 1975, along with Thulani Davis and Ntozake Shange, Hagedorn formed a band called the West Coast Gangster Choir, rechristened in 1978 in New York City as the Gangster Choir. Upon moving to the East Coast, she participated in New York?s Basement Workshop. Earlier experiments using dramatic sketches during the pauses between songs contributed to the development of her performance art. Following the production of several theatrical works and teleplays, in 1981 her Pet Food & Tropical Apparitions appeared, which featured sexually charged poems and in the title story took a hard but sympathetic look at the capacity of inner-city culture to evince simultaneously an incomparable vitality and a lurid self-destructiveness. Between 1988 and 1992, she participated in the performance/theater trio Thought Music.

Wake those SVA kids out of their slumber and teach them about the real world !!~ What's it's really all about : Art in 2006 !!

Jankay Art - Taking It Up A Level!

The emerging art market is the focus of Jankay Art.

It seeks and represents artists who have reached a level of professionalism that presents a fine work of art at a reasonable value to todays growing affluent society.

Jankay Art researches the market to stay on top of the art buyer's preferences and assists in matching artists to the market. They then provide the artist with top level presentation materials and expertise to place work in mutually beneficial locations for both the artist and the gallery operator.

Represented artists must meet its criteria for a marketable emerging artist. These artists are then presented to the gallery for their consideration apart from the artist themselves. This alleviates the difficulties of face to face artist/gallery presentations allowing honest and open discussion of the artist's compatibility with the gallery. And it provides to the gallery a pre-screened qualified creator and supplier of fine art for their treasured clients.

I suppose this forum is the blog that was talked about at the programmers meeting. In that regard:

The image is too big so I have to scroll horizontally to read it.

I find it annoying to have the latest entries on bottom, especially when so many have accumulated.

Regarding the Goldberg interview, I asked why he didn't bring slides and he gave a half baked answer that I was too chicken to confront. Anyway at home I googled a site that had a lot of his images. I think he is an excellent artist, just a very inconsiderate panelist.

And I just reread the description and loved the flat out statement in RED:
"Adam Pendleton didn't show up, and offered no excuse."

Word Art: art whose principal imagery is spelled out in words. A great variety of possibilities is realized by artists. Word art could fall into the categories of pop art, field painting, abstract composition, conceptual art, etc. In addition to work from Richard Lewis Roth, Nathaniel Mellors, Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, and Adam Pendleton, images from such well known artists as Lawrence Weiner, Kay Rosen, and Joseph Kosuth will be shown and discussed.

Moderator: Richard Lewis Roth, artist
Participants: Nathaniel Mellors, Internationally exhibited British artist
Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, public artist, director of studies in graphic design at the Yale School of Art
Adam Pendleton, conceptual artist
Organizer: Richard Lewis Roth, artist

Nathaniel Mellors was unable to appear. George Pendle presented Mellors' work.
Adam Pendleton didn't show up, and offered no excuse.

G.W. Wormwood,

Apparently you are unaware of how far in advance the ATOA panels must be planned. Perhaps you have nothing better to do with your Friday nights than rant on our BBS, but our panelists typically have busy schedules. For four or five people with busy schedules to find a Friday night when they are all free requires planning months in advance.

In addition, the panelist's schedules must be coordinated with the SVA schedule of dates when the venue, which they so generously provide ATOA, is available. Hence it is necessary to inform everyone involved in the planning process well in advance which dates are "blacked out."

As to any "World Wide Web artists out there looking to 'CC' someone in the New York art world," this thread was started to allow you to suggest your ideas to the ATOA Programming Committee.

Furthermore, any artist willing to work on a panel idea and see it through the programming process is welcome to join the Programming Committee. Contact to explain your panel idea, why you believe the panelists you have in mind will be willing to participate, and why you believe your panel will be able to attract an audience in the New York art world.

The Real World... with real dialogue

Posted on CRAIGSLIST: Did Your Art School Adequately Prepare You for the Real World ?

When you were an Art/Design School undergrad, did your superiors prepare you for the professional world? In college, most of us were pushed to do what was best as a forward-thinking creative, but upon entering the real world, it was realized that things were not as idealistic. Many put in long hours for bad pay and end up with jobs where they are able to "create" only a quarter of the time. Errand running, mindless assignments, phone answering, constant emailing...these are just a few of the tasks that await grads at their cubicles.

Please, if you would like, share your story. What was your first job like? What was your second job like? Did it take you long to adjust to what the "real world" had in store? More students need to know what awaits them on the other side of their diploma. Good and Bad, the more that can be compiled, the better those getting ready to enter the creative environment will be able to problem solve and get ahead.

Tell a story about your first job or any other professional blunder or success. It is optional to be anonymous or not. Please, if you choose to be anonymous, include your first name only and your age. Unfortunately, there is no compensation offered for your writings, but they will be used in preparation for new coursework on Students Entering the REAL Real World. If you choose to leave your name, you will be credited.

Fine Arts Lecture Series:

In describing his work Marcaccio says;
? I call this kind of work "Multiple-Site Paintants".

Many of the images I use are taken from THE INTERNET.

In one sense, it's as though one were to capture material that flows through the Intenet, and to "petrify" it at a certain moment in relation to a space and an architecture.

This painting is meant to create a passage between the real architectural and virtual worlds. I am interested in the concept of that which we call "site", especially in the sense of place. "Surfing" in the case of this painting can be taken literally, in that one views the work while strolling by. In this case, I placed the work in a semi-enclosed area, as if it were part of both the exterior and the interior of the building. One can walk by it from one side or the other.?

Borat Sagdiyev is a Kazakh reporter who was born in 1972 in Kusek, Kazakhstan. Borat has a great admiration for Joseph Stalin, whom he describes as being both "strong" and "powerful". He believes politicians should be like him and have large "khram". Borat has a pet pig, Igor, which he claims to love, although he and his family did eat it, including the eyes. He has had many jobs ranging from ice maker to animal sperm retriever. He also claims to have previously worked as a Gypsy catcher, boasting that he can "hit a gypsy with a rock from fifteen meters away if chained ? ten if not".

What is Phenomenology?

Phenomenology is commonly understood in either of two ways: as a disciplinary field in philosophy, or as a movement in the history of philosophy.

The discipline of phenomenology may be defined initially as the study of structures of experience, or consciousness.

Literally, phenomenology is the study of "phenomena": appearances of things, or things as they appear in our experience, or the ways we experience things, thus the meanings things have in our experience. Phenomenology studies conscious experience as experienced from the subjective or first person point of view. This field of philosophy is then to be distinguished from, and related to, the other main fields of philosophy: ontology (the study of being or what is), epistemology (the study of knowledge), logic (the study of valid reasoning), ethics (the study of right and wrong action), etc.

"The Lived Experience Of Making A Life Drawing; Drawing Amy"

Textorium: phenomenological research paper by Brooks, Margaret

RE: When a model sits for you for six to eighteen hours there is a tension that does not exist in other drawings.

There is a commitment to the model and her effort.

The time is set and framed. The model as subject is chosen, yet I have not chosen the subject of the drawing.

There is the expectation that I will draw, and draw well.

There is the expectation of an outcome, the finished drawing.

These expectations, I have learned, can create blocks that can paralyze the creative process...."

RE: " When I talk to fine art students about trying to understand drawing through a phenomenological process some draw back protectively. Some are hostile. Some are suspicious. Why do I want to know? What am I going to do with the information? They feel I will reveal too much. They don't want me to uncover their secrets. They guard the intimacy of the artist?s sanctuary as one would their virginity. They want to keep the mystique of making art as some do religion. Are they afraid that if everyone knows, then it will be available to everyone? If it is available to everyone then will it have less value?"

"How ?"... you may ask... has ATOA lasted over 30 years and yet remained vibrant, interesting and energetic ?... damn if I ....

Dedication! Dedication! Dedication!

Next to that New York elitist artist Andy Warhol -
Elvis paintings on Velvet are probably the best known art.

And cut mirrors painted with Elvis as subject matter grace many a home along side pictures of Jesus.

With this country having so many wounds to heal -
a discussion on ELVIS art hosted by A.T.O.A would gladly aknowledge the overwhelming taste of AMERICAN art.

The New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting & Sculpture hosts 2 weekly evening lectures @ their New York Studio School during the regular school semester.

On Tuesdays, established and emerging artists lecture on their own work or on issues in art about which they feel particularly passionate. Art critics, historians or philosophers present pertinent and sometimes controversial subjects in art history and art criticism on Wednesdays.

The Evening Lecture Series, although designed for students, has become a major resource for the vibrant art community of New York City. The Lecture Series provides a forum for discussion of issues in art, referring frequently to contemporary exhibitions in museums and galleries. Public access to the series broadens the scope of the evening's discourse.

Some of the renowned artists, critics and historians who have participated in this series over the years include:

W.H. Auden, Leland Bell, Louise Bourgeois, John Cage, Mark di Suvero, John Elderfield, Morton Feldman, Louis Finkelstein, Jack Flam, Andrew Forge, R. Buckminster Fuller, Lawrence Gowing, Clement Greenberg, Philip Guston, Thomas B. Hess, John Hollander, Willem de Kooning, Hilton Kramer, Lee Krasner, Stanley Kunitz, Brice Marden, Joan Mitchell, Theodore Reff, Harold Rosenberg, Robert Rosenblum, Susan Rothenberg, Margit Rowell, Meyer Schapiro, Leo Steinberg, Frank Stella and Edgard Varese.

Seriously... I'm trying to do a good deed here..

I'm a big fan of a UK film maker named
Marcus Robinson.
He has created several "British Heritage"
time-lapse films for the BBC

( Doug should approve of that, right ? )

And I admire that Robinson can express
a wide range of emotions from childlike playfulness,
to an ageless sense of time passing..
and ( God help me...)
some very touchingly romantic imagery

There I said it !

Actually the Wellington "arch at dusk" sequence
is my personal favorite.

Only a 32 second clip - but a very inspiraltional and dreamlike piece


So back to "Topic: Suggesting Panel Ideas"

Marcus Robinson is currently has a film
work-in-progress on the re-building at
the World Trade Center site.

He has used imagery as a non-verbal narrative
with highly artistic sensibilities.

It was screened in 2007 at The LMCC downtown Dinner
and maybe someone at ATOA could fit him in
( 14 minute film ) during a program on...
"Healing" , or during a WTC memorial program,
or changing face of downtown NYC.

more background on Marcus Robinson:

MARCUS ROBINSON is a leading photographer/film-maker of urban transformation.

See: Directors - Marcus Robinson

See: BOOK / Black Dog Publishing:
Eye, The Story Behind The London Eye
Marcus Robinson Photographer

Sweeping one of the world's most famous skylines at 135 metres in height, the London Eye is the largest observational wheel in the world, and provides a spectacular 30 minute 'flight' over the capital. But if it had not been for the vision, commitment and sheer persistence of David Marks and Julia Barfield, the husband and wife team of architects behind the project, the London Eye might never have been built.

Against the backdrop of New Labour's pre-millennium Britain, prominent public figures attacked and defended the project, there were unprecedented design and construction problems to overcome, and Marks and Barfield had to fight every inch of the way to maintain the integrity of their vision.

This seminal moment in British architecture is celebrated through the dazzling photography of Marcus Robinson, insightful writing by "The Guardian" journalist Steve Rose, and the clean and modern design of Neville Brody's Research Studios.

WTC's Fast Forward


Among those happy to see the recent pact on the World Trade Center redevelopment was Marcus Robinson, a film maker who is chronicling the rise of the huge project using time-lapse photography.

Mr. Robinson has staked seven cameras surrounding the site, which will keep shooting until the massive redeveopment is finished years from now. His film will include sequences showing it rising from the ground in a matter of seconds.

During the years of fighting between developer Larry Silverstein and the site owner Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, there wasn't much progress to record. But that should change in the wake of the financing deal reached between the two sides.

"It's very exciting to see the steel rising from the ground," says Mr. Robinson, best known for his film on the Millennium Wheel in London. "It's like a healing process."

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will pave the way for a crucial step in the development of a performing-arts center at Ground Zero on Tuesday, when its board members vote on a package of contracts that would allow for the construction of the center's structural foundation, according to city officials briefed on the matter and the authority's public agenda.

The package, which includes an agreement for the center's common infrastructure costs, such as an electrical system, is valued at $44.02 million, according to city officials.

The funding is expected to come out of $50 million released for the arts center by the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. earlier this year.

Suggesting panel idea;

The world has been in the process of its globalization. Today with the exception of a few, most societies are gladly embracing this rapid change, enabled partly by our technological advancements.

It is not too difficult to see that artists of a given society have always played a significant role in discovering, developing and maintaining its cultural characteristic through time. But Contemporary Art posts an interesting dichotomy to artists, cultural critics and the like, especially those of the Far, and Near East. It is because Contemporary Art is so much a product of the Western culture and its historical development, namely the USA and European countries. Today any art that does not resemble its looks and fashions would be classified as a lesser art. Even though they co-exist at the same contemporary time, they would not share the same prestige. These are folk art, indigenous art, Chinese art, and etc. Therefore in our Globalizing Age, art is still not just art. Art is made of all different kinds of sub-art, whereas Contemporary Art of the Western concept remains the most important in the world art platform. Is that right and just at the time now when our understanding of art is so much more sophisticated, and the Western dominance is giving way to the emerging new world powers?

What is the role of artists today in face of these challenges? Is the cultural characteristic of people groups not important anymore? Should artists accept the current Contemporary Art trend and join the band wagon? Or should artists re-examine and transform art of our contemporary world into something better representing all its global inhabitant? In the end, we, as people of the world, will all melt into the same pot and our art will melt just the same. Instead of melting into the pot of Contemporary Art as of today, we ought to create a better stage where the cultural characteristics of all people are fairly represented, in which people can equally share and dialogue.

Did you know that ATOA has over 30 years of art discussions documented on tape? This tremendous archive of contemporary art history will surely help future historians - if it survives! However this archive is recorded on magnetic tapes which desperately need to be preserved before they deteriorate.
