BIO
PLEXUS is a monthly lecture/performance series in Upper Manhattan. Our goal is to spark lively discussion in a fun and inclusive setting. These events open a space for discourse outside of the academy; our goal is to drain "intellectualism" of its exclusive connotation. Once a month we invite speakers who work at the margins of their disciplines, blurring divisions between fields of knowledge that are partitioned in learning institutions. There's also beer. Past presenters include artist Melodie Provenzano, neuroscientist Carl Schoonover, and documentary filmmaker Isabel Castro.

We are hosted with the generosity of Chashama 461 Gallery in Harlem. All our programming is free and open to the public.

Plexus is an interdisciplinary lecture/performance series in Upper Manhattan. We seek to provide community members and curious minds with a forum for exchange, emphasizing multi-disciplinary conversations between art, science, humanities, and everything in between.

Join us for the upcoming installment of Plexus.
Featured this month:

// Stephen Duncombe
professor, writer, and director of the Center for Artistic Activism presents on creative forms of action bridging the worlds of performance art, dissent, and politics.
http://www.stephenduncombe.com/

// Jesse Fuchs
game creator and theorist (most recently the developer of the board game: Guts of Glory) discusses 20th century board games and gives us some keen insight into some of our favorites -- like monopoly!

// Phillip Stearns
artist/engineer will discuss his sound and visual practice in electronic media, through which "the circuit is explored as a means for sculpting electricity."

consider all the music you don't listen to because it reminds you of your ex. don't you wish those songs didn't bum you out? lucy hunter and rick boyle are here to help. we host a show on WBAR Barnard College Radio - though we prefer to call it a "music reclamation project" - where we play all those songs for you. every week we help the broken-hearted mend their music libraries, sharing both our own tragic romances and those of others.

we hope that by broadcasting these tracks into the ether, you will cancel out the intimacy you associate with them. it's angsty and prone to generous oversharing - college radio par excellance.

please submit your playlists (anecdotes welcomed) to musicreclamationproject@gmail.com.
our show airs fridays 6-8am, but is available 24/7 online at http://www.wbar.org/station/archives.
indicate if you are interested in being a guest host.

lovingly yours,
lucy and rick

Spring '12 exhibit: Boundary/Trespass


THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. Thank you to the artists who submitted work. I took the idea in a very different direction - one for which I will be coding instead of curating. Please visit the URL on my profile for more info: www.meatspace4cyberspace.com

OPPORTUNITY

Spring '12 exhibit: Boundary/Trespass


Deadline:
Sat Dec 31, 2011 14:40

From basic identity theft to Wiki Leaks, violations of
territory have less to do with a transgression of material boundaries than a
breach of firewalls. Security no longer aims to prevent intruders “out there”
from entering “in here;” rather, the threat is often unseen, if it exists in
one place at all. Call for art that deals with trespass and private space,
particularly the tension between divergent physical and Internet-based
manifestations. Possible online-only exhibit; call primarily for digital media.
Limited funds allotted for exhibition costs.
