Doors 11 AM
Conversation 11:30 AM

NeueHouse Bradbury
304 South Broadway
Los Angeles, CA 90013

Sarah Rara and Daniel R. Small will discuss how the landscape and architecture of Los Angeles can inform artistic investigation. From employing new forms of technology to collaborating with scientists, how can artists help shape culture that informs our understanding of the spaces and time in which we live? How do artists employ technology as material, subject, and analogy for human experience? They will discuss their own work and are joined by Laura Hyatt, executive director of Los Angeles Nomadic Division (LAND).

Maceo Paisley

As part of Frame Rate: Wild Art Party

Using everyday objects MACEO PAISLEY’S performance explores social constructs through the creation of abstract sculptures that include his body. Using balance, force, leverage, and soft power these physical metaphors illustrate the mechanical nature of our social arrangement and how humanity and culture interact to complete these social structures implicitly and explicitly contributing to the existence of the paradigms we often feel trapped within.

Multi-disciplinary artist, designer, and cultural producer, Maceo explores themes in society and identity through movement, language, and imagery.
For the past decade Maceo has danced professionally, performed on national stages as a spoken word and performance artist, and with Citizens of Culture, continues to investigate culture with social research that seeks to identify new ways of being in an increasingly complex world. http://www.maceopaisley.com

Julie Weitz

Julie Weitz, My Golem as The Great Dominatrix
1-channel HD video, 7:10m, 2018

Part of Frame Rate: Wild Art Party

Premiere of Julie Weitz’s The Great Dominatrix

Inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s “The Great Dictator” (1940) and the Jewish myth of artificial intelligence, Julie Weitz’s character My Golem transforms into “The Great Dominatrix” to dom an inflatable globe in Part I of an ongoing video series. Transgressing cultural, religious and gender norms, “The Great Dominatrix” parodies historic anti-Semitic propaganda in an absurdist attempt to counteract today’s rampant xenophobia.

For WILD ART PARTY, artist Julie Weitz will perform in character for her first live performance as My Golem, her social media alter ego.

Julie Weitz is a visual artist, writer and educator based in Los Angeles. Her videos and photographs consider the psychological, physiological and social dimensions of virtual identity and her immersive installations examine our bodily relationship to the screen and moving image.

PHYSICAL PLASTIC

Part of Frame Rate: Wild Art Party

REDCAT Studio 12-10-2017

PHYSICAL PLASTIC presents Alarm.  Alarm was conceived in the middle of the night in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, with yet another violent disruption from a security alarm. Since, Alarm has become a questioning of boundaries, ownership and power in the urban environment as well as the geopolitical scene, performing ideas of need, limit and transgression in the context of capitalist society and its ongoing crises. Alarm implicates us in questions of difference, of desire, and law. In a series of inter-woven vignettes, vocal compositions by Christofides are layered with Brigette Dunn-Korpela’s choreography and the visual strategies of Dasha Sur, with the ensemble portraying trespasser, bystander, and the alarm—or evoking the mythological sirens who tempt transgression. Short work-in-progress excerpt performed by: Joseph Baca; Bailey Edwards; Cristina Fernandez; Kestrel Leah; Dominique McDougal; Lisa McNeely; and Lizi Watt. Costumes by David Moyer and Kestrel Leah. Lighting by Katelan Braymer.

PHYSICAL PLASTIC is a director-composer partnership between Yiannis Christofides (Cyprus) and Kestrel Leah (UK) rooted in the symbiotic creation of sound and gesture. We invite genuine collaboration across disciplines and—in response to rising nationalist tendencies—across cultures. We have recently been in residency at The Watermill Center and are recipients of the 2017 New Music USA Grant for Alarm. YIANNIS CHRISTOFIDES is a composer and sound designer combining practices in electronic art music, creative sound design, sound art, media theory and cultural studies. He creates music and soundscapes for art installations, performance, media, and curatorial projects. His work has been presented at leading venues and institutions throughout Europe and the U.S including The Lincoln Center, The Athens Festival, and The Southbank Centre, London. KESTREL LEAH is a director and performer working across music, film, dance and visual art. She earned a Masters in Acting at CalArts, and combines practices in Suzuki training, extended vocal technique, and the methods of Theodoros Terzopoulos. Regular collaborators include WaxFactory (NYC), B. Dunn Movement (LA) and visual artist Julie Bena (France). http://www.physicalplastic.com

NOMADIC NIGHTS: Corey Fogel + Abigail Levine

INVENTORY

LAND HQ
6775 Santa Monica Blvd., #5,
Los Angeles, CA 90038
May 17, 2018
8-8:30 PM

INVENTORY is an ongoing meeting ground for percussionist Corey Fogel and dancer Abigail Levine.

Although identified as musician and dancer respectively, we discovered that fundamentally we do the same work. We activate everyday materials using noise, rhythm, and metaphor. We work in the overlapping spaces of movement and sound to create new relationships with our materials and each other. We trust a primordial impetus to engage our bodies doggedly, insistently, with the task at hand.

Beginning each time with a new set of untested objects, INVENTORY builds a micro-world of rhythmic, visual, and physical events that are always near collapse.

ABOUT COREY FOGEL:  Corey Fogel is a Los Angeles based artist and percussionist. His practice is based on spontaneous encounters, often involving the intersection of sounds, objects, textiles, foods, and often includes collaboration with other musicians and artists. Fogel engages the viewer to consider sound as a medium on par with paint and cellulose, a constant in our daily lives. Through his work, he challenges us to find the contexts in which we create, store, and understand sound.  Fogel received his MFA at CalArts in 2004 and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Integrated Composition, Improvisation, and Technology at the University of California, Irvine.

Fogel’s works have been presented at Machine Project, Los Angeles; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Human Resources, Los Angeles; Redling Fine Art, Los Angeles; The Wulf, Los Angeles; The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; The Museo de Arte Contemporaneo do Oaxaca, and REDCAT, Los Angeles. His performance work was also included in J. Paul Getty Museum’s Pacific Standard Time Performance, Public Art Festival, and West of Rome’s Trespass Parade.

Fogel also performs and composes in many rock, jazz, noise, folk, and chamber music ensembles. In addition to touring and recording internationally, Fogel has been a member of groups: Julie Holter, Missincinatti, The Mae Shi, Gowns, Cryptacise, Barbez, Monstro, The Curtains, Learning Music, Nowcloud, Dominique Leone, 18 Squared.

ABOUT ABIGAIL LEVINE :  Abigail Levine is a New York-based choreographer and performer. Her works are rooted in dance and draw from visual and performance art. She holds a Masters in Dance and Performance Studies from New York University under the advisement of André Lepecki and was the 2013-15 editor of Movement Research’s digital performance journal Critical Correspondence, where she co-curated the Dance and the Museum project. Levine is currently a visiting professor in Dance at Wesleyan University.

Abigail will present the next in her ongoing Restagings series, Of Serra (to movement), at Fridman Gallery in New York and at Vox Populi in Philadelphia concurrently in June 2018. Her works have also been presented at venues including Movement Research Festival, Mount Tremper Arts Festival, Danspace Project, Roulette, Gibney Dance, Center for Performance Research, Kennedy Center, and internationally at SESC São Paulo, Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (Cairo), Festival Escenario Urbano (Caracas), Días de la Danza (Havana) and Taipei Fringe.

Abigail was a reperformer in Marina Abramovic’s retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art and will return to MoMA in Fall 2018 to performer Yvonne Rainer’s Talking Solo and other early works. She has also performed in the work of Carolee Schneemann, Clarinda Mac Low, Asad Raza, Larissa Velez-Jackson, Will Rawls, and Mark Dendy. 

 

Nomadic Nights: Joe Sola

JOE SOLA RECORD LAUNCH PARTY FOR THE ARTIST, A NEW LAND ARTIST MULTIPLE


UPSTAIRS BAR AT ACE HOTEL
929 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90015
October 5, 2017
7 – 9PM

LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) celebrated the launch of The Artist, a new Artist Multiple by artist Joe Sola. Guests met the artist and listened to his record while enjoying cocktails in the pool area upstairs at ACE Hotel. The album features a hand-painted record jacket by the artist and is available for purchase.

LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) and LA-based conceptual artist Joe Sola have collaborated on an Artist Multiple, two-track album entitled The Artist. The record is inspired by the humor and wit of Belgian poet and visual artist Marcel Broodthaers’ work of making sounds related to an object (in this case the vinyl). Side A of the record features Sola crying while on Side B the artist is laughing. Sola worked with local Los Angeles musicians Corey Fogel and Jacques Voyemant to record the album, using the opportunity to explore music as it relates to the physicality of art making.

ABOUT JOE SOLA: Joe Sola’s diverse practice includes video work, painting, and performance. His current solo show, Pictures at Tif Sigfrids, consists of six new works and conjures Sola’s ongoing interest in the overlapping tropes of Hollywood filmmaking and performance based art practices alongside a deeply entrenched regard for the paradox of the absurd. For his inaugural exhibition at the gallery, Sola created a series of six portraits ranging from 4/64 x 5/64 inches to 11/128 x 5/64 inches in size. The paintings, all oil on styrene, were situated in the gallerist’s ear during gallery hours for the length of the exhibition.

Joe Sola (b. 1966 in Chicago) lives in Los Angeles.  He has participated in various international institutional group exhibitions at: Kunsthuas Graz, Austria (2014), Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg (2014), Vancouver Biennale (2009), Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City, Mexico (2002), Instituto Cubano Del Art e Industria Cinematographico as part of the Havana Biennial (2000) InSite 2000, Tijuana, Mexico. And nationally at many institutions including: Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2016, 2009), Dallas Medianale (2015), Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC (2013), Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA (2011), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, (2009), The Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, CA (2002). His works are in the public collections of The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, The High Museum of Art, Atlanta, and The Portland Museum of Art, Portland, OR amongst others.

LANDxAIR: MOCA Tucson, Winter 2015-2016

LAND is pleased to announce LANDxAIR, its first Artist Residency Program, which will take place annually at rotating hosting institutions nationally and internationally. The initial artists in residence are Sean Patrick O’Brien and Sarah Rara.

The first iteration is in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tucson, and will consist of a month-long residency to promote an in-depth engagement with the community and rich natural resources of Tucson, encouraging exchange and dialogue through public programs, conversations, studio visits, and a culminating presentation.

LANDxAIR is the latest evolution in LAND’s international, public art programming and aligns with the organization’s mission to serve diverse public audiences and artists, presenting contemporary art in site- and situation-specific environments. Tucson is a unique setting for the launch of LANDxAIR as the city has long been a welcoming environment for artists. MOCA Tucson is an epicenter for Arizona’s cultural resurgence and cultivates a vibrant community of artists, with a stated mission to, “inspire new ways of thinking through the cultivation, interpretation, and exhibition of cutting-edge art of our time.” With its history of human habitation going back 4,000 years, as well as a colonial and Native American past, Tucson has a distinct flavor, abetted by its geographical location in the Sonoran desert, surrounded by the Tucson and Santa Catalina Mountains. Artists will take residence in MOCA Tucson’s historic neo-brutalist firehouse, built in 1971. Two artists will be selected by LAND and MOCA’s curatorial staff, and will be invited to live and work in the former firemen’s quarters located within the museum. Access to a private room/studio space will be provided, along with general curatorial oversight throughout the residency.

 

LANDxAIR: MOCA Tucson is made possible with support from the Offield Family Foundation.

Opening Reception and Performances for Rock512Devil, Our Union: the Second Iteration of Brendan Fowler’s Walls at St. Elizabeth’s

Artist Brendan Fowler handed off the second curatorial iteration of his six freestanding wall sculptures to Baltimore-based collective, Rock512Devil, as the sculptural walls became a platform for their artist selection and a series of performances, music, and screenings. For this installation, the boards had been rotated, allowing for a new surface for the artists to work on, and a new collaborative artist/curator/artist creation. Participating artists and performers included Peggy Chiang, Bryan Collins, Max Eilbacher, Amanda Horowitz, Kelley Mcnutt, Sexoesthetic, and Marisa Takal. The artists involved are friends and past collaborators with the members of Rock512Devil, bringing together mutual friends and acquaintances is a union characteristic of the project space itself.

Rock512Devil is a collaborative project between Chloe Maratta, Flannery Silva, and Max Guy. For a year Rock512Devil existed as a project space on 512 Franklin Street in Baltimore, MD. Rock being the name of the bookstore, and Devil the name of the curatorial project. The two projects retained unique characteristics, co-existing in an overlapping program of experimental performances, readings, screenings and exhibitions.

Coyote as they walk edthroughout the National Mall testing the power of clichés and other pop cultural referents in much the same way that one would test a battery or an apparently unresponsive body for signs of life.
