  1. Jaime,

    MASS is back with new leadership, new members, and a kick-ass schedule of exhibitions and events for the fall and beyond. Our upcoming show is this Friday, October 13th, from 8-12. The press release follows. We’d love to see you there and hear what you think. It should be a great show.

    If you have any pre-emptive questions, feel free to write (aarondubrow@hotmail.com).

    Increasingly, media is breaking down into digestible bytes of data that make their rounds not in movie theaters or on television sets, but on computers, cell phones and iPods. A common denominator among these current forms of media is the download and upload file size limit of 20 megabytes, a fractional capacity that necessitates compression of quality and concision of content.

    MASS is bringing these small video files into the gallery for an exhibition exploring the possibilities of new media pathways.

    For 20MB, curators Aaron Dubrow (Austin) and M.F. Tichy (New York) solicited videos under 20 megabytes in file size from over 20 international artists, including animators, documentary and experimental filmmakers, painters and new media artists, all drawn from national and global telematic pathways.

    Among the artists included in the exhibition are Mike Smith, Oliver Herring, Paul Pfeiffer, Cauleen Smith, Karen Skloss, Thomas Comerford, Mckendree Key, Alexander Stewart, Timothy Hutchings, Elizabeth Huey, and many more.

    The resulting videos will be on view at MASS Gallery (916 Springdale Road, Austin, Texas) from October 13th to November 9th, with an opening from 8p.m. to midnight on Friday, October 13th.

    For more information about the show and MASS, see our website: http://www.massgallery.org.

    Existence is Elsewhere Surrealism and the 21st Century
    Michael Berryhill, Virginia Yount, and Cecelia Phillips

    Else Madsen Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of work by Michael Berryhill, Virginia Yount and Cecelia Phillips organized by Stacey Farrar and William Hundley. The exhibition will open Friday, March 9th with a reception for the artists from 6-9pm.

    Existence is Elsewhere brings together three painters dealing with an aspect of reality such as landscape or narrative with surrealist tendencies establishes a tangent of our perceived reality. The work thrusts itself against rational and “civilized” standards by embracing not only the absurd and irrational but also aiming a sensitive eye on scenes and landscapes from our everyday experience.

    Surrealism is one of the most influential philosophical and artistic movements of the last century. A direct revolt of the hypocrisy of those who took refuge in the beauty of classical artwork in the midst of the futile barbarisms that was occurring in the First World War. Dada and Surrealism’s direct iconoclasm was born out of rejection of the status and restrictive authority of the early 1900’s. With more than 80 years of evolution between the birth of this movement and our present situation, surrealism is as pertinent now as it was in 1924.

    In the vein of Yves Tanguy and more recently Neo Rauch these painters explore the idea of transcending reality by combining facets of imaginary and perceived realities in an attempt to change modern consciousness. Michael Berryhill, Virginia Yount and Cecelia Phillips pursue these realities and tangents to encourage the viewer ascend to other states of existence, if only for a brief moment.

  13. Time Travelers: Time Based Art Show and Panel Discussion @ Polvo Gallery Edit
    Written by Perpetual Art Machine
    Tuesday, 19 June 2007

    There only needs to be one Time Based Art Show, you can set your Time Machine’s Coordinates to the following event:

    Time Travelers: Time Based Art Show and Panel Discussion
    Curated by [Amelia Winger-Bearskin]
    June 29 – July 28, 2007
    Polvo Gallery
    1458 W. 18th St. 1R, Chicago, IL 60608 Tel. 773.344.1940 Saturdays 12pm-5pm

    Opening June 29th at 6pm live performances begin at 7pm
    Panel Discussion June 30th at 3pm followed by an encore sound art performance

    Time Traveler’s is a holistic look at pre-apocalyptic, post-feminist, trans-structuralist, and post post-modern misadventures. Time Traveler’s celebrates misanthropic investigations of human relationships, subversion, and mayhem of any variety; we are actively against describing ourselves anything as simple as avant-garde. Time Travelers recognizes that NEW MEDIA has incorrectly been identified as the repository for all art technologies utilizing a video camera, a computer, and an electrical outlet, but insists that as artists, first and foremost, we can use any f*&%@!’n media we wants! As you recall yesterday, there were more buzz-words in this press release.

    Artists Featured:
    Donata Napoli
    Dietmar Krumery
    Universe of Junk
    Haircuts by Robots
    Bidzina Kanchaveli
    Artur Augustynowicz
    Joseph Winchester
    Bailie Duncan
    Guiniviere Webb
    Per E Riksson
    Michael Una
    Christopher Borkowski

    At 3pm on Saturday June 30th we are holding the
    Time Travelers Panel discussion:

    Each time a loaded art word is used, two or more universes will be created in which differing ideas become the dominate paradigm [Everett-Wheeler Graham Theory of Branching Universes]. The following panelists will be but may not be in attendance [Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle]:

    Suntek Chung a well known Performance Artist and Photographer
    Christopher Borkowski co-founder of the video portal [PAM] Perpetual Art Machine.
    Patrick Lichty is a technologically-based conceptual/performance artist, writer, independent curator, co-founder of Second Front and animator for the activist group The Yes Men.

    The most contentious art movement since the Dadaists, this Time Traveler community discussion on time, space, art and possibilities will occur. Due to the implications of Bell’s Therom, it will link listeners at a Quantum Level across n-dimensional Hilbert Space. WARNING: This panel may be outrageous, and may use utilize a ridiculous blend of word-salad artspeak. Please, a special request to time travelers: check in before teleporting during the panel.

    Free Manifestos available at Polvo Gallery

      [size=3][/size]Open Reception:
      Sunday, July 12th 6-9 p.m.

      Joshua Saunders (b. 1981) is a hoarder and gatherer of the highest order. He spends many days sifting through the books and papers section of the Blue Hanger and various other trash bins/stores, searching for the pornographic drawings, decades-old advertisements, thrown-away documents and other pieces of disposable Americana that make up the bulk of his collages. His art occasionally incorporates juxtaposition, but more often relies on an interplay between the various parts that isn’t quite so obvious, but attempts to put a twist on an idea of America that may not have ever existed. And he can fuck for a really long time. [img]
