Opening reception +
Performance by Lainie Love Dalby:
Friday, November 1, 7-9 pm

Nu Age Hustle is a group show featuring 9 artists working in video, fabric, installation and performance. Drawing
equally from elements of “New Age” and Pop culture (hip hop, fashion, and e-commerce) these artists explore ritual,
earth and sky awareness, embodiment and commodification at the increasingly blurred boundary of the spiritual and
the secular. Many adopting their own body as a site of resistance and agent of performative praxis, Nu Age Hustle is a show highlighting artists as global citizens and consciousness shifters. Speaking truth to power in their own unique idioms, these works pinpoint and shift social loci toward interdymanic and cosmic heights. John Miller Chernoff, a scholar of African aesthetics of social action, has broadly defined culture as “overtly musical,” in nature. For Chernoff culture is “a dynamic style or organization through ‘various mediators,’” and for these artist scavengers of it, it is ever the bright, fungible horizon. As border crossers and at times, futuristic agents of cultural upheaval, the artists of Nu
Age Hustle recalibrate distinctive elements mediating contemporary daily living in ways radically experiential and
spiritually raw.

Sunday November 10th 3-6pm Go! Push Pops and A Feminist Tea Party will host a Shak-Tea Party, an esoteric gathering and skill-share honoring the feminine principle. Light snacks and tea served, white tantric meditation, discussion of herbalism/foraging, special guests and circle work. Free and open to the public.

Gender Trouble


Deadline:
Fri Sep 13, 2013 09:45

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Radical creative inquiry and the 'aesthetics of resistance' that occur when the gendered body speaks in the visual will be investigated in this course. Presentations of slide and video work by key contemporary and historical figures will help students situate their creative production in relationship to contemporary discourses around race, class, gender and sexuality in art. How do we make sense of feminist art of the past and present-its contradictions, slogans and symbols? What content is lost in translation during art's shift from private practice to public locus? Students will complete reading assignments by a range of critical theorists, including Hélène Cixous, Julia Kristeva, Elizabeth Grosz, Tricia Rose, bell hooks, Fred Moten, Susan Sontag and Slavoj Zizek, as well as bring in work in any media for weekly critique. This course features a special section on hip-hop culture and several guest lecturers.
