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.

Jens Hoffmann / Curatorial Déjà vu

Friday, April 18, 6:30pm
Jens Hoffmann, Curatorial Déjà vu

In his lecture, Jens Hoffmann will explore the recent trend in exhibition making to revisit, recurate or otherwise reanimate historically important exhibitions. Hoffmann will discuss his thoughts and ideas that culminated in his recent revival of two legendary shows from the 1960s: Primary Structures (The Jewish Museum, New York, 1966) and Live in your Head: When Attitudes Become Form (Kunsthalle Bern, 1969), resulting in Other Primary Structures (The Jewish Museum, New York, 2014) and When Attitudes Became Form Become Attitudes (CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco, 2012).

Jens Hoffmann is an exhibition maker and writer, and is currently Deputy Director of The Jewish Museum, New York.

Yvonne Rainer, The Aging Dancer and Her Dis/contents

Friday, March 28, 6:30 p.m.
Yvonne Rainer, The Aging Dancer and Her Dis/contents

The lecture will include autobiographical accounts and excerpts from a documentation of Rainer’s most recent choreography Assisted Living: Do You Have Any Money? (2013), an amalgam of movement and speech derived from a number of different sources, including Rainer’s own choreographic imagination and her collaborative process with her dancers. The piece presents new challenges for the group in that they are required to deliver long monologues while performing intricate steps. Following her customary penchant for radical juxtaposition, Rainer has taken the risky route of pairing vaudevillian pratfalls with solemn socio-economic analyses. The dire times in which we live seem to demand such an approach.

Admission:
Free and open to the public

Date:
Friday, 6:30 p.m. March 28, 2014

Place:
Stony Brook Manhattan
