Candice Breitz, From A to B and Back Again

Candice Breitz is a Berlin-based artist whose moving image installations have been shown internationally. She has been a tenured Professor at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Braunschweig since 2007. Breitz has spent long stretches of time producing works in Jamaica, Italy, Germany, Austria, Japan, Sweden, Great Britain, Ukraine, South Africa, the United States, India, and Nigeria. Her immersive practice seeks to capture and observe the nuanced ways in which individuals relate to and are determined by the dense social constellations in which they exist. She will talk about and screen footage from several works that she has made on the road over the last decade, discussing the ways in which her creative practice has been shaped by the myriad of people and places that each work must negotiate as it comes into being.

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.”

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.

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
101 East 27th Street, 3rd Floor,
