Year of Uncertainty at Queens museum, Queens, NY
part of the Guardians of Flushing Bay exhibit.
You can listen to a field recording of mine in the exhibition Year of Uncertainty,
currently on view at the Queens Museum as part of a presentation by the
Guardians of Flushing Bay, a grassroots coalition of human powered boaters,
local residents, park users and citywide partners advocating for a healthy and
equitably accessible Flushing Bay and Flushing Creek.
I contributed a living wind map of Flushing Creek’s tidal shores. Nurtured by the
Lenape, plundered by europeans and its tidal flows soon to be forever lost due
to unnecessary condo development along these wetlands.

ART • WORK • PLACE: EMERGENCY SESSION WEBINAR
BREAKOUT SESSION #1: MUSEUM WORKERS AND ORGANIZING
BREAKOUT SESSION #2: STRIKING AND SOCIAL JUSTICE
BREAKOUT SESSION #3: WORKING WITH CHILDREN
* recordings accessible from website link.
As the COVID-19 pandemic worsens, cultural workers are experiencing mass layoffs, and it is clear the art world will never look the same. In the first hour of this emergency forum, speakers will present ten-minute reports from the field; the second hour will feature breakout Q&A sessions with the speakers as well as a labor lawyer and a children’s therapist.
Art • Work • Place was originally planned as a two-day summit on efforts to create a just and equitable workplace in the art world—union organizing at museums, protests against toxic philanthropy, challenges to institutional racism, and lawsuits against sexual harassment and gender discrimination. But the current health emergency has drastically changed our conversations and needs. This online forum will instead focus on the immediate moment, sharing concrete information and ideas: What is happening to workers at art institutions across the country? What coalition groups have been formed for solidarity and support? What are our strategies going forward?
The organizers are reallocating the budget for the planned summit and speakers are forgoing their usual honorarium so that funding can be directed to aid groups and individuals in need.
Ian Epps (Art Handlers Alliance) will explain what is occurring at the city, state, and federal levels to support precarious workers, and what actions we can take.
Michelle Millar Fisher (Art + Museum Transparency) will describe the layoffs, furloughs, and pay cuts taking place at museums and galleries, and the consequences for unionization.
Camilo Godoy (artist/educator) will outline the specific challenges confronting freelance museum educators.
Landry Haarmann (Met Council on Housing) will discuss strategies for rent strikes.
Shaun Leonardo (artist) will talk about his work with young people caught up in the justice system and New York State’s recent rollback of bail reform.
Andres Puerta (International Union of Operating Engineers Local 30) will address cross-organizing and solidarity with striking workers.
Kate Zayko, LCSW, will answer questions about the new struggles parents and children are now facing.
The forum will be chaired by Nikki Columbus.
Organized by the PhD Program in Art History (CUNY Graduate Center), in collaboration with the James Gallery/Center for the Humanities (CUNY Graduate Center) and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics (The New School), where it is sponsored in part by the Helen Shapiro Lectureship.

Opening reception: Wednesday, January 31, 6-9 pm
Opening night performances from Mathew Burtner 7 & 8 pm.
With Ian Epps, Aaron Halley, Tom Mulligan, and Jeremy Slater.
Gigantic ArtSpace [GAS] and free103point9 are pleased to present [silence], a exhibition focused on artists' uses of and responses to silence - as manifested in sculpture, in installation, in composition, in works on paper, and in time-based practices. The works on view address the futility of the chase, the beauty of absence, and the rich potential of an empty signal. Works from: Matthew Burtner, Jeroen Diepenmaat, Michael Graeve & Christoph Dahlhausen, Pablo Helguera, Douglas Henderson, Pierre Huyghe, Tarikh Korula & Tianna Kennedy, David La Spina, LoVid, Juan Matos Capote, Lee Ranaldo, Douglas Repetto, Michelle Rosenberg, Stephen Vitiello, and James Woodfill. Curated by Dylan J. Gauthier and Galen Joseph-Hunter.
Sound program: A Call for Silence, curated by Nicolas Collins.
Courtesy Sonic Arts Network.
Saturday performance series: 4:33 pm featuring Michelle Nagai (2/10), Michael Graeve with Tianna Kennedy (2/17), and 31 Down (2/24).
ABOUT THE WORKS
By compounding the energy of the FM signal, Matthew Burtner's performance Study 1.0 (feedback) for radio transceiver revisits the artist's childhood in Alaska and his ensuing focus on open communication in unoccupied places. David La Spina will present photographs of Burtner's performance at the opening reception - a sort of residual, feedback hum of the opening night.
Juan Matos Capote combines painting, sculpture, and field recordings in Series H, a study of accumulation, absence, and the nature of that which is imagined but unpronounced.
In Jeroen Diepenmaat's pour des dents d'un blanc éclatant ! et saines. dead birds are reunited with their lost birdsong through the preservational power of phonography.
Michael Graeve and Christoph Dahlhausen create an inaudible, synaesthetic feedback loop between two divergent but thematically similar art practices with their minimalist cadavre-exquise, Dialog 1.2.
Pablo Helguera presents new work gleaned from the series Dead Languages Conservatory, last words from all-but-lost languages.
Douglas Henderson exhibits a series of sculptures involving ultra low-level sound components, water, and the visual language of sine-waves.
Pierre Huyghe's Partition de silence (Score of silence) is a transcription of Cage's silent masterwork 4'33î (1952) into a flute sonata achieved via a sound-to-MIDI converter program.
Tarikh Korula and Tianna Kennedy will create a recording stylus in an attempt to unlock the Archeoacoustic sound dormantly sealed in found and historic objects around New York City.
Hearing Red continues the collaborative LoVid's work in blurring sensory boundaries through the use of electrical signals and synaesthetic output: in this case, a pure "Red" video signal is played as "sound" through a speaker, taking its form from the frequency of the video signal.
Lee Ranaldo's 4 organs combines thematic and visual data from Robert Smithson and Steve Reich to reach a third, distended point between the suspension of their respective oeuvres.
Douglas Repetto will realize a new version of the installation, puff bang reverb, a kinetic sculpture and semi-accurate, two-dimensional hyper-zoom, which exposes the secret life of displaced air molecules.
Michelle Rosenberg will present a new series of Ornamental Headphones that reassess our collective, compulsive culture of listening.
Stephen Vitiello's Trio, employs low-frequency sine tones to force the surface of a number of speakers to pulse and vibrate in patterns visible to the eye yet inaudible to human ears.
James Woodfill's film 60hz derives its subject from the constant and pervasive flow of electricity throughout our environment to alter our perceptions of time and movement.

Ian Epps finds...the4yearoldchild
""Ian Epps pulls apart the familiar sounds of a 12-string acoustic guitar, through real-time computer processing, for a nostalgic attempt to recombine them into an imagined audio identity of the4yearoldchild. the4yearoldchild investigates speech, sensation, environment, memory and its immaterial impressions upon and within one's body. "Completely regressive...almost pre-verbal!""--Richard Gess.

Marumari, Richard Devine, High_Five_Bros., Ian Epps
Rhode Island's Marumari is a computer animator by day, and you can feel it in his gentle, wispy songs. His Supermogadon rains radiance, rays of new wave and new age synths showering the thin basslines and clicking freshly cut underbrush in a warm glow. It's the Moody Blues meets Mouse on Mars. It's bubbly. It's refreshing. It's pop, plain and simple. Local Warp and Schematic Records experimental electronic artist Richard Devine presents a live triple laptop threat, previewing tracks from his upcoming singles and 3-D electro-acoustic album. The High_Five_Bros. play droning improvisational space rock. Ian Epps performs on the glitch-hop, Oval-esque tip. And DJs Rasheed, Nemo and J-Stroke drop platters between the clatter. A premiere night of rare, top-shelf electronic music. MJQ Concourse (Ware)
