Jason Paradis: Residency at Watch Hill, Fire Island National Sea Shore

Residency at Watch Hill, Fire Island National Sea Shore

May 24 – June 10, 2014

“I will continue to explore Watch Hill at the Fire Island National Sea Shore during this residency.  My work will investigate the shipwreck of the Bessie A. White.  I will continue a series of mixed media work that extends from my short stay at Watch Hill last summer.  During that time, I started some drawings that used the shipwreck as a reference.  The Bessie A. White sunk in 1919-1920 and was subsequently buried by the dunes.  When Hurricane Sandy hit Fire Island in October of 2012, it exposed the ruins of the ship.  Newspaper photographs from November of 2012 show that the shipwreck was completely exposed, however by the time I visited in June of 2013, a significant portion of the ship was buried again.  The ability of the dunes to quickly migrate and cover what is around them will be the inspiration for this new body of work.”

DOUG ISCHAR at SBU Manhattan

20140502_Doug_IscharFriday, May 2, 2014
3:00pm  |  room 321A

Doug Ischar is a contemporary artist known for his work in documentary photography, installation art, sound art and video art. Following large multi-media installations such as Orderly (1994) and Wake (1996) Ischar turned to more minimal forms. His 1997 work for InSite (San Diego/Tijuana) used a high school basketball court as locale for a multimedia meditation of adolescent homosexual desire. His 2001 work ground uses twenty-four channels of audio to replicate the sound of a gallery floor being swept. His 2005 public installation Water Music explores the relationship between personal and artistic histories of the Pacific Rim cultures in which Ischar lived as a child. Since 2008, he has been producing highly complex single-channel videos around issues of cross-generational male intimacy and psychological/social loss.

Doug Ischar will be speaking and screening three recent video works, come lontano (2010), Alone With You (2011), Tristes Tarzan (2013) currently showing at the Whitney Biennial 2014.

Stony Brook Manhattan is located at 387 Park Ave South, New York, NY 10016. Use entrance around the corner at 101-113 East 27th Street.

In “Five Star”, Keith Miller’s Leading Man Is a General in the East New York Bloods

Keith Miller’s latest film grew out of his 2011 short, “Gang Bangin’ 101.” In that two-minute doc, James “Primo” Grant – a burly, bearded Brooklyn native who works as a bouncer at a Bed-Stuy nightclub – spoke frankly about joining the East New York Bloods when he was 12 and eventually becoming a five-star general in what he calls the “brotherhood.”

This film is also an official selection of the Tribeca Film Festival 2014.
