THURSDAY JUNE 5
TALK
7PM

Join Milwaukee-based artist and agitator Nicolas Lampert of Justseeds as we discuss his new book, A People’s Art History of the United States, released this past winter from The New Press.

Part of The New Press People’s History series, A People’s Art History of the United States places art history squarely in the rough-and-tumble of politics, social struggles, and the fight for justice from the colonial era through the present day. In doing so, it presents a provocative alternative art history that shows us how activist art often emerges from the streets and social movements – and communities that produced these movements – and exists far beyond the confines of traditional art institutions.

Through dramatic retellings of important historical events, readers will be introduced to key works of American radical art, including the graphic agitation of the abolitionist movement, photographs of the Lower East Side housing conditions, the Haymarket monument controversy, the WPA-Federal Art Project, Gran Fury and ACT UP NYC, the Yes Men, and more. A People’s Art History of the United States is nothing less than a vital alternative education for anyone interested in the powerful role that visual culture plays in our society – and in the ongoing culture of resistance.

Divinatory Poetics

In this one-day class, we will generate work inspired by divinatory practices—dream-work and the Tarot—as well as root ourselves within a ceremonial writing practice. The day will begin with a close, syntactical reading of our dreams, followed by an introduction to employing the Tarot as an editing tool. We will close with an intention setting ceremony where we will set and dedicate ourselves to future writing goals.

Children’s Screenwriting One-day Studio

Want to write the scripts for TV shows or films? Curious about how screenwriting works? Thinking about making a documentary?

This course is designed to teach kids about the fundamentals of screenwriting, from brainstorming to creating a concept to honing a finished (though not full-length, of course) piece. We will study screenplay structure and take a look at sample screenplays. We’ll use Story by Robert McKee as a reference point, and we’ll also watch a few different video clips of various iconic films for inspiration.

This class is for children who are passionate about film-making or writing. We’ll be doing a lot of timed writing prompts and fun games like “exquisite corpse” to get our ideas flowing.

image

In 2013, Keith Heyward spent ten weeks documenting one of the most remote and geologically unique regions in the world, the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica. This landscape is the closest analogue to the surface of Mars on earth. Each panoramic photo is comprised of between 60 to 4000 individual images stitched together. Through this method of photography, Keith is able to create an ultra high resolution image that can be blown up to the size of a football stadium and still maintain clarity. With his innovative photography and time-lapse videos, Keith worked to capture his simultaneous feelings of vastness and claustrophobia working and living in this alien land. 

Visual artist Julia Liu’s illustrative response to Heyward’s photographs plays on the public imagination of the South Pole. The stark monochromatic landscapes depicted in Julia’s drawings contrast with the surprising vividness of the interior panoramas. 

Keith is also developing an innovative website (buriedice.com) where visitors can watch 360 degree time-lapse videos and take a 14 kilometer virtual hike along the peaks and valleys of the Dry Valleys.  Check it out at the closing on April 18 or online thereafter.

SCREENING and FILMMAKER Q&A
7PM

Out Here is a full-length documentary film created by the Queer Farmer Film Project. Completed after 4 years in production, it looks at the experiences of queer farmers in both rural and urban areas across the country and asks – what does it mean to be a queer farmer, is agriculture a safe space for queer people, and what are the relationships between food production and queerness? The movie focuses on seven queer farms/farmers from Berkeley to Alabama including Sandor Katz, fermentation expert and author of Wild Fermentation and Karen Washington, NYC food justice hero and former President of the New York City Community Garden Coalition.

Writing Where You Are  

From

In the evening, from 5:30-7PM, they’ll get to read their work with some of those same writers. Teacher Kate Schapira’s hope is for people to enrich their sense of what it’s like to be a writer here, what a writer’s many options might be.

Sliding scale of $10-$30; no one turned away for lack of funds. 

Resolutions Not Ruins: Conflict Resolution In Your Organization

As in all communities, conflict in organizations is unavoidable. It is also uncomfortable. In working through conflict, the question shouldn’t be, “How do we prevent conflict?” but rather “How do we address conflict in ways that are healthy and build a stronger organization?” This workshop will map out how systemic power is one of the main roots in conflict, while building skills to recognize and address how systemic oppression moves through conflict. In the process we’ll share AORTA’s conflict resolution practices and methods in order to get a jump start in developing tools and processes tailored to your own organization and lives whether you are mediating conflict or a participant in it. 

ABOUT AORTA

AORTA is a collective of educators devoted to strengthening movements for social justice and a solidarity economy. We work as consultants and facilitators to expand the capacity of cooperative, collective, and community based projects through education, training and planning.  We base our work on an intersectional approach to liberation because we believe that true change requires uprooting all systems of oppression.

BURIED ICE opening

In January of 2013, Keith Heyward traveled with Boston University scientists Dave Marchant, Sean Mackay, and fellow filmmaker Jennifer Berglund to one of the most remote and geologically unique regions in the world: the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica. They spent ten weeks working in the elements to unearth the world’s oldest ice. By studying the particles frozen inside this buried ice, scientists are given a glimpse of our world millions of years ago.

Keith is developing an innovative website (buriedice.com) where visitors can watch 360 degree time-lapse videos and take a 14 kilometer virtual hike along the peaks and valleys of the Dry Valleys. BURIED ICE will feature photographs and time-lapse videos from the South Pole, a sneak peak of buriedice.com, and Indian ink illustrations by artist Julia Liu and woodwork by craftsman Ron Kuhn that complement Keith’s documentation.

A Workshop in Spoken Text

In this one-day studio workshop, we will write for our voices and then use them. Drawing on ancient and modern examples of the oral tradition – poetic recitation, theater, storytelling, and spoken word– we will experiment with our own voices, written and then spoken. How does sound and rhythm guide the writing of a story? How does memorization influence the relationship between the text, the performer, and the audience? What happens when the voice on the page doesn’t match the voice that says it aloud? The workshop will be guided towards writers in all genres.

"Learn to Love Your Artist Statement"

This is a half-day introduction to the artist statement created to help students who may be uncomfortable writing about their work to uncover the original viewpoint or ambition present in what they create and learn to articulate what is unique about what they are trying to accomplish. If you are writing an artist statement or statement of purpose for a residency or grad-school application, this one-session workshop will help you address the fundamentals of these documents through analysis and discussion of several sample statements and in-class editing exercises. All artists and writers are welcome to attend!

ASHLEY PAUL - PACE OF TIME
with Ben Pritchard, Sakiko Mori, and Laura Cetilia 

LAURA CETILIA
cello, autoharp, voice, and electronics

ASHLEY PAUL is a performer and composer based in London. She uses an array of instruments including saxophone, clarinet, voice, guitar, bells and percussion, mixing disparate elements to create a colorful palate of sound that works its way into her intuitive songs; free forming, introverted melodies. This blend manifests beautiful and simple musical forms against acoustic experimentation. Her solo albums have received high praise being chosen “Album of the Column” in The Wire, number one on Byron Coley and Thurston Moore’s “Tongue Top Ten” in Arthur Magazine and included on NPR’s All Songs Considered “Best of 2010”. She has been interviewed in the German magazine Spex, The Sound Projector magazine, Foxy Digitalis and on Rare Frequency.

Premiered at Roundhouse, London, August 2, 2013, Pace of Time makes its US premiere in Boston. Written in response to the Conrad Shawcross’ Timepiece installation at Roundhouse, POT was inspired by two concepts: simultaneity (different planes of consciousness coexisting) and duration (the time or experience of pure feeling outside of chronological order)

LAURA CETILIA leads the life of a chamber and orchestral musician, concert presenter, electronic musician, and music educator. Classically trained, Laura graduated with distinction from the School of Music at Indiana University and received her Master’s degree in cello performance from Wichita State University where she was awarded a position with the Graduate String Quartet. In Spring 2011, she worked with composer David Behrman during a residency at Atlantic Center for the Arts where she also collaborated with video artist Naho Taruishi on the audiovisual piece Corner Projection No. 6. As a soloist, she is comfortable working with and without electronics, most recently at the PHI Centre in Montreal as part of a series of performances organized in conjunction with the Ryoji Ikeda exhibition. In addition to her solo work, she is a member of the electroacoustic ensemble Mem1 with partner Mark Cetilia, and performs avant-garde chamber music with violist Robin Streb in their duo Suna No Onna. Suna No Onna has premiered works by composers André Cormier, Jürg Frey and Antoine Beuger in performances throughout Canada, the U.S. and Europe. Laura is also a member of the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra and Resident Musician at Community MusicWorks, a non-profit organization that provides free after-school music education programs for children in urban neighborhoods of Providence, RI.

"…Think Sam Beam meets Vashti Bunyan; hushed, comforting, and ultimately, beautiful and calming. In other words, just what I needed," GorillavsBears says of Spider.

VivaRadioBlog describes Hill as, “classic Americana that channels the likes of Neko Case and Stevie Nicks. Like Nicks, Hill’s arrangements walk the line between dirgy and dreamy.”

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 21
PHOTO TALK
7–9PM

Welcome rad photographer Tod Seelie to Providence as he shows images from his new book BRIGHT NIGHTS: Photographs of Another New York, which features images taken over the last 15 years. 

Tod Seelie has photographed in over twenty-five countries on five different continents. Originally from Cleveland, he relocated to Brooklyn in 1997. Tod was a founding member of The Miss Rockaway Armada, and continued on to travel with both manifestations of the Swimming Cities. His images also appear in the feature films Perfect Sense (2011) and Empire Me (2011).

His work has appeared in publications such as The New York Times, New York Magazine, Rolling Stone, Spin, Men’s Journal, Juxtapoz, Thrasher, Vice, Der Spiegel, American Way, and Adbusters among others.

Of his work, Tod says: “My photos of New York are unusual. I shoot at the edges; I don’t really take pictures of landmarks. If you see a picture of the Williamsburg Bridge it’s because I’m shooting an illegal party taking place on top of it. I focus on various subcultures in all their forms, but I can’t resist iconic images of my New York: burning cars, flattened rats, abandoned buildings. I’ve spent many nights over the last decade in the crowds at DIY rock shows, bizarre parties, and guerrilla art shows in abandoned buildings. These images mix with street scenes, intimate portraits of friends, and moments that inspire a double-take of confusion and wonder. Rough bike gangs appear next to amateur strip contests at drag parties, followed by a fancy dinner in a train tunnel.”

RIGHT NIGHTS: Photographs of Another New York includes mini essays by Tod’s friends and peers that help set the stage of what was happening and what it was like to to live in New York between 2000 and 2012, when most of these pictures were taken.

Tod has exhibited work in solo and group shows in New York, Berlin, Tokyo, Paris, Milan, Sydney, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami and at Mass MoCA and the Philadelphia Art Alliance. His work has also appeared in photography books, such as The Vice Photo Book, Hijacked and Backyard Shakedown.

From the profile in the New York Times:

"His images at times elevate mere weirdness to a more striking realm of visual intrigue. Strange, vivid, baffling and relentlessly unexplained, they leave their viewers transfixed…"

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 22
READING
7PM

The Drive-In is the latest in Not About The Buildings' series of marathon readings of very short novels. This time we'll be reading The Driver's Seat, Muriel Spark's bleak, hilarious, unsettling, minimal, terrifying novella from 1970, which follows a woman named Lise from Denmark (probably it's Denmark) to Italy, where she's on a quest to find the perfect man. Perfect for what, no one can say, exactly.

Only 107 pages long, the book was described by Ian Rankin as “the most visual of all of Spark’s novels,” and in 2010 one cranky writer from The Guardian called Lise “excruciating” and the book itself “unlovable.” You will hopefully disagree!

Come by to read aloud, or just listen to others reading this deeply unsettling, bristly tale.

All Not About The Buildings events are free and open to the public.
