Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz: Arctic Abrasions

When: On view through May 23rd, 2017

Opening Reception: April 21, 5-8PM

Where: Miller Yezerski Gallery, 460 Harrison Ave, Boston, MA

How: Official Website

What/Why: “We are pleased to announce Arctic Abrasions, an exhibition of new work by Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz. There will be a reception on Friday, April 21, 5 – 8 pm.

In 2013, Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz traveled up the coast of Norway and into the desolate yet beautiful landscapes of the Arctic. Through a hybrid technique melding photography with painting, Arctic Abrasions captures both the wilderness of the far north, and the traces of past and present human industry. Spatz-Rabinowitz captures this terrain with the documentary lens of photography, and then transfers her images to Hydrocal (a dense plaster) and watercolor paper, where she alters and reinterprets them using a variety of methods and materials.

The fissures and disruptions Spatz-Rabinowitz casts into her Hydrocal tablets obscure the clarity of the image, giving each photograph a tactile, mutable layer, creating “photographic images that breathe and speak in the intimate language of surface.” She then works into them with oil paint and other media, transforming the content. The imperfections in the image act as a metaphor for the abrasions in the Arctic landscape left by both nature and man. Skeletons of deserted towns puncture the terrain, serrated streaks of earth and cracking ice leave dark lacerations in the exquisite, intensely varied palette of this region. The distinction between natural deformities and the artist’s hand blur on the coarse surface of each piece, creating an otherworldly representation of the dissolution and demise of the Arctic.

Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz is a Boston-based artist who has shown at galleries and museums across the northeast. She has received a number of honors and awards, including a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, multiple Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowships in Painting, and the Arctic Circle residency that was the foundation for this body of work. Her work has been included in several private and corporate collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Addison Gallery of American Art, and the DeCordova Museum and the Graham Gund Collection.”

Games and Politics: An Interactive Exhibition by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with ZKM | Center for Art and Media

When: on view April 21 – May 21, 2017

Special Game Play Nights at Boston Cyberarts Gallery:

Wednesday, April 26, 7-9 pm

Wednesday, May 3, 7-9 pm

Wednesday, May 17, 7-9 pm

Art Games 48-hour Game Jam

May 19-21 at the Goethe-Institut Boston

Opening Reception: Friday, April 21, 6-8 pm at Boston Cyberarts Gallery

Where: Boston Cyberarts Gallery, 141 Green Street, Jamaica Plain, MA  // Goethe-Institut Boston | 170 Beacon Street | Boston, MA | 617.262.6050

How: Official Website

What/Why: “BOSTON- The Goethe-Institut Boston and Boston Cyberarts present the touring exhibition Games and Politics, which examines how computer games unfold their political potential. It explores the scope and limits of the computer game genre, constructing a counter-position within the entertainment industry with the aid of a repertoire of politically ambitious computer games from the past twelve years.

Games and Politics presents 16 playable games from the past 12 years that cover a wide range of topics. In these games, players experience the contingencies of political decision-making itself (Democracy III) and witness social injustices. The games address precarious labor conditions (Sunset) and gender issues (Perfect Woman), the surveillance state (Touchtone), the consequences of armed conflicts (This War of Mine), the treatment of refugees (Escape from Woomera) and revolutions against totalitarian systems (Yellow Umbrella). Adopting the characters of often-marginalized people such as a border official, housekeeper, drone pilot or war survivor, players will experience limited possibilities and negative sanctions through both the character and the game play.

Whether computer games are seen as a political issue, as an entertainment medium or even as art, depends at present on the context. Every game positions itself within a society and thus makes society one of its themes. We therefore can postulate a political relevance for all computer games, even and especially when they seem to elude all political action (that is, collectively binding decisions). Even for these games it applies that the players issue regulations, but also must in turn play according to the rules of the game in order to play at all. At the other end of this spectrum are games that are deliberately used for the goals of political education or propaganda with a view to reaching otherwise hard-to-reach target groups.

Games and Politics comes to Boston as part of a world tour which started in November in Mexico and Korea. After this third stop in the United States, the exhibition will continue on to nineteen more countries including Brazil, Russia, Iran, Palestine, Nigeria, India, and Vietnam well into 2019. It is accompanied by Art Games, a series of eight 48-hour game jams around the world where game developers, programmers, artists, musicians and other creatives come together to develop computer games. The winning games will be presented in Germany in mid-2018. The Boston edition takes place May 19-21 at the Goethe-Institut Boston in Back Bay. For more information visit www.goethe.de/artgames.

This exhibition is organized by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with the Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe (ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien in Karlsruhe

Game Nights hosted in partnership with Artweek Boston!”

Inventing América

Friday, June 2, 6:30 pm

Where: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. 465 Huntington Ave, Boston, Massachusetts 02115

How: Official Website 

What/Why: “New York-based artist and educator Pablo Helguera (born 1971, Mexico City) explores historic and contemporary definitions of American identity in Club Americano at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA).

The exhibition takes aesthetic inspiration from 19th-century university clubs and gentlemen’s lounges—exclusive spaces for elite groups of one gender and race—but breaks with tradition by welcoming people of all backgrounds to gather, lounge, read and participate in a series of events. The intimate space created in the Bernard and Barbara Stern Shapiro Gallery offers visitors a seat at a 19th-century dining table, surrounded by paintings, decorative arts, photographs and prints from the MFA’s renowned collection of art from the Americas. Helguera, acting as an artist-in-residence at the MFA, selected the objects in collaboration with curators and conducted research on their history and function. His Pan-American selection ranges from Henry Sargent’s The Dinner Party (about 1821), a painting that provides a glimpse into early Bostonian upper-class life, to embroidery samples made by women in 19th-century Mexico and a 1935 lithograph by José Clemente Orozco about the power of people convening.

The artworks in the gallery will serve as subjects for a series of three performance art gatherings delivered by Helguera, guest speakers, musicians, artists, youth and activists, who will address the objects’ histories through a present-day lens. Additionally, a video of Helguera performing a speech on the origins of a social club will be projected inside an 18th-century frame. On select Wednesday evenings, when admission to the MFA is free, local student and community advocacy groups will use the space to host public events related to topics of inclusivity and cultural understanding. Club Americano is on view from April 22 to June 4, 2017. Performance Art at the MFA is supported by Lorraine Bressler.”

Art from Nea Kavala

When: April 25-May 6, 2017

Where: New Art Center, 61 Washington Park,  Newtonville, MA 02460

How: Official Website

What/Why: “Paintings & Drawings by Refugee Children in Northern Greece

Closing Reception: May 6, 3-5PM

(Talk by Kayra Martinez, founder of Love Without Borders, at 4:30 PM) 

The New Art Center (NAC) in collaboration with guest curator Mia Rosenblatt Tinkjian and founder of Love Without Borders Kayra Martinez, is pleased to present Art from Nea Kavala: Paintings and Drawings by Refugee Children in Northern Greece.

About the Exhibition: Featuring drawings and paintings by displaced children living in the Nea Kavala refugee camp in Northern Greece, this exhibition stands as a powerful testament to the transformative power of art. Created by untrained children using limited materials, the artwork elegantly communicates the experience of transition. Some pieces relate to journeys, many of which are still ongoing; airplanes, boats, and roads stretching endlessly towards the horizon are common themes. Other works express a longing for normalcy with images of brightly colored sunsets, birthday cakes and animals that represent a desire for place to call home and feel safe. All works in the show are available for sale. Proceeds will directly benefit the children and their families.

About the Curator

Mia Rosenblatt Tinkjian is an artist and independent curator living in Newton, MA. She holds an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Rosenblatt Tinkjian first connected with Martinez through NeedsList, an app that connects humanitarian groups with volunteers and donors. Hoping to raise funds and awareness for the refugee crisis, Martinez was looking for a curator to organize shows of the artwork by displaced children and Rosenblatt Tinkjian was drawn to the project. The bright colors and bold strokes of the children’s artwork spoke to her. “Children are just children, no matter their circumstances,” says Rosenblatt Tinkjian. “These are just kids, and they are stuck. They long for shelter, food, clothing, a place to call home, and peace.”

Amid the Noise

When: Friday April 21, 8 PM – 11 PM

Where: Le Laboratoire Cambridge, 650 East Kendall Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02142

How: Official Website 

What/Why: “Kadence Arts presents the New England premiere of composer/performer Jason Treuting’s evening-length, multimedia, large ensemble work Amid the Noise on April 21, 2017. Pulsating drones, ambient noise textures, and subtly shifting rhythms bind this collection of nine pieces for mixed percussion, voices, and strings. Described as “a remarkably beautiful and atmospheric work” (All About Jazz), the performance would take place at La Laboratoire Cambridge, steps from the Kendall Square MBTA stop.

A patient study of musical spaces, the work’s modular structure and flexible instrumentation provide a unique opportunity to assemble a diverse team of outstanding musicians from Boston and the wider region. Participants will include: members of the Boston Conservatory Percussion Ensemble, as well as Doug Perkins, Greg Jukes, Maria Finkelmeier, and Drew Worden. Mr. Treuting will make a special appearance performing a movement of the work alongside long-time collaborator Cenk Ergun. A string trio led by Beth Meyers rounds out this extraordinary collection of musicians. The band’s hyper-local-meets-standout-regional flavor cuts a distinctive profile, making for a compelling addition to Boston’s musical season.

A founding and current member of the influential quartet, Sō Percussion, Jason Treuting has appeared in performance throughout the world, from the Barbican to Lincoln Center, to the Concertgebouw, DOM Moscow, Walt Disney Hall, and elsewhere. His compositions, noted for their compelling rhythmic language and evocative expressivity, have been performed by artists including Shara Nova, the JACK Quartet, TIGUE, Shen Wei Dance Arts, and others.”

This separation of oneself from one’s needs and feelings is an instinctive maneuver in order to shut off excessive pain. We call it the split. The organism splits in order to protect its continuity.
-Arthur Janov

I came across a book, The Primal Scream, Primal Therapy: The Cure for Neurosis, authored by Arthur Janov, on the street. I had found the tattered copy of the original edition (published by Dell Publishing Co. in 1970) sitting in a gutter in Manhattan’s Upper West Side, just a block or so away from the Dakota on West 72nd Street. I was drawn to its enigmatic cover image (in this particular edition: a mouth, wide-open and apparently screaming, emerging through the cover of what appears to be a bolted box or book), its promotion as a cure for neurosis, and its title promising a potential link to the Reichian method, a specially painful form of a regressive therapy that my partner had undergone in previous years.

According to Janov’s Primal technique, patients absolve themselves from their neurosis and deeply layered repression, while simultaneously avoiding psychosis, by reliving the original trauma through the seemingly simple task of screaming one’s pain away. Since its initial release in 1970, the book has sold more than one million copies internationally and has been translated into various foreign languages. It quickly became infamous perhaps because of its profound effect on superstars John Lennon and Yoko Ono, who underwent Primal therapy in early 1970, and who also lived in the neighborhood in which I found my copy of the book. The album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, released in December of the same year neatly and loudly records their involvement with Janov. Lennon and Ono, and Vietnam, were of course the cultural reality of my parents’ generation, not mine.

My main interest in Janov’s unique view is how early childhood trauma is experienced (both in minor and severe forms) and how, to cope —as a protective maneuver— the organism instinctively splits, thus suppressing unfelt feelings and creating unreal needs. Through a successful primal therapy session, by figuratively touching the pain the trauma is relived and thus resolved. I also enjoy that fact that Primal Theory is essentially anti-Freudian as it bypasses language and focuses on ‘the organism that knows but cannot feel’.

If the task of critical culture, in Freudian terms, is the return of the repressed, illustrated by pitting subculture against culture, low against high, and oppressed against canonical; then, in Primal terms, the task of this exhibition is not to thematize Primal theory and its subcultures, but to investigate the method of how each artist arrived at the work they create: the primal practice.

Despite, or perhaps because of, the implicit simplification inherent to a pop-psychology item of the early seventies, I found the idea of “the split” resonating with many things I’ve heard in my conversations with artists. Through the simple idea of a split I could look at artists as “organisms” and find commonalities more methodological than cultural. The primal is beyond culture. It’s both acultural and anti-cultural. What unites the works in The Split is more “how” the artists arrived to them than “what” they purport to represent —this exhibition hence rejects the thematic or the illustrational while still aspiring to address our contemporary condition.”

Edacity

When: On view through May 28, 2017

Where: Yellow Peril Gallery, 60 Valley St #103, Providence, RI 02909

How: Official Website 

What/Why: PROVIDENCE, RI – Yellow Peril Gallery is pleased to present Naomi Campbell’s new exhibition Edacity from April 22 – May 27, 2017. Curated by Susanne Karbin, the exhibition further develops Campbell’s exploration of the fragile relationship between food production and environmental sustainability she initiated in the show Bread and Circuses at The Center for Contemporary Art, New Jersey, in 2016. Here she takes it further by incorporating the concept of fear, suggesting both subjection and denial in observance of a scenario almost certain to erupt. The opening reception is Saturday, April 22, from 6PM – 9PM.

Edacity features an installation comprising sculptures, wall pieces, metal, glass, and video, where Campbell’s use of light projection on sculptural elements creates an immersive spatial setting. The mobile sculpture Damocles’ Sword hangs from the ceiling like a chandelier or centerpiece alluding to concerns about modern day food experimentation technology and its effect on the individual. Fragments of mirrors and glass alter the viewer’s perception of reality furthering the biological/technological immersive experience.

Campbell was born in Montreal, Canada and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She studied at the Collége de Champlain in Quebec, the University of Guelph in Ontario, and the School of Visual Arts in New York. She also studied painting and printmaking at The Art Students League of New York. Her art is displayed in numerous permanent public collections, some of which include the City of New York; the City of Irving, Texas; the City of Geochang, South Korea; the New York Public Library; the New York State Museum, NY; and the Trenton City Museum, New Jersey.

In 2016, Campbell presented The Consonant of Noise at International Studio & Curatorial Program in Brooklyn, New York, where she created a braille pattern of corn kernels running across the gallery walls, and a sculptural installation on the floor, alluding to the global food crisis in which corn is paramount.

The opening reception for Edacity is Saturday, April 22, from 6PM – 9PM. The exhibition will conclude May 27th. This is Naomi Campbell’s second solo exhibition at Yellow Peril. Her first solo exhibition was Retinal Displacement in 2012. Edacity recently debuted in 2017 at Peligro Amarillo / Santurce, our outpost in San Juan, Puerto Rico.”

Hideout: Artist’s Reception

When: Friday, April 28 at 6 PM – 8 PM

Where: Boston Children’s Museum, 308 Congress St, Boston, Massachusetts 02210

How: Official Website 

What/Why: “HIDEOUT, created by artist Amy Archambault, looks at fort making, and creating, in a new way that is directly inspired by children. Children like to create forts and play pretend in invented habitats, tree houses, clubhouses, and oddly impractical but satisfyingly constructed vehicles that can be pushed across the floor. Archambault began by asking children to recall the place(s) they have created or to imagine the ones that they would like to create. What do these fort-like structures look like? What materials are they made out of? What shapes are present in their construction? How small or large are these constructions? What everyday comforts and objects does one bring to their safe space?

A diverse collection of participants’ drawings served as Archambault’s muse in the same way that personal memories inspire her “tinkering” studio practice and past fabrications. Following the collection of so many inventive drawings, she began to analyze what components or features were ubiquitous to fort building. Regardless of the diversity that presented itself in participants’ drawings, it became evident that for many fort building conformed to a simple equation of materials and methods. Ultimately, young explorers and creators used similar tools, materials, and assembly ideas. Chairs, tables, blankets, sofa cushions, furniture, wooden supports, lights and pillows surfaced as the essential basic building blocks.

The installation is scheduled to run March 18 – June 18, 2017.”
