Upcoming Exhibitions (NYC)

Upcoming Exhibition: September 25 - 29, 2007
12 noon - 6 pm

A week-long performance by Ivan Civic
Curated by Marina Abramovic

Ivan Civic's piece, NOBILE, was first staged at the 2007 Dance and
Performance Biennale in Venice, as part of Body and Eros, a project by
IPG (Independent Performance Group), curated by Marina Abramovic.
Civic's performance at Artists Space further explores the obsessive
narcissism and dependency on perfected images in Western culture. The
work is also inspired by highly ritualized exercises in auto-eroticism
developed by nobility in the late 17th century.

NOBILE is the second installment of When Time Becomes Form, an
ongoing performance series of long-durational work, curated by Marina
Abramovic for Artists Space. The series explores and questions issues
of concentration, will power, and determination, and involves the
artists' use of the entire gallery space for 6 hours during each day
of their performance. Twelve distinct, but interrelated, durational
performances, each created and presented by a different performance
artist (a member of the Independent Performance Group (IPG)), will
occupy the Main Space galleries between exhibitions. The entire series
will unfold over the course of the next two years.

MAIN SPACE: On Being an Exhibition
A group exhibition curated by Joseph del Pesco

Works by: BGL, Conrad Bakker, Beth Campbell, Valerie Hegarty,
Germaine Koh, Isola and Norzi, Chadwick Rantanen, Derek Sullivan, Anne
Walsh/Chris Kubick, Lee Walton, and Laurel Woodcock. Public program by
the Center for Urban Pedagogy.

On Being an Exhibition takes Michael Asher's thinking and work as a
point of departure toward developing an exhibition that leverages the
pre-conditioning of the viewer and the physical language of the
gallery. The artworks in On Being an Exhibition consider the contextual
materials of the gallery and draw awareness to one's experience of the
gallery as mediated, interrupted and animated by artworks. The
exhibition simultaneously proposes to complicate the idea of an
exhibition as a packaged cultural production that is both promoted and

Joseph del Pesco is a member of Artists Space's newly formed
Curatorial College, a body of three curators who oversee the programs
at Artists Space. The Curatorial College will be collaborating with
other curators, as well as artists, to produce compelling exhibitions
and public programs during the course of their three-year tenure. This
new model seeks to engage the community and to enrich the dialog
between artists, curators, and other cultural practitioners in the
field of contemporary art and architecture.

CAMPARI Project Space: Episode
A new work by Judit Kurtag

Hungarian artist Judit Kurtag's videos foster a consciousness of time
in which the moving image is a keeper at the border between the
immediate and memory. Her videos have been shown in Paris, Amsterdam,
Milan, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Reykjavik among other locations. This will
be her first exihibition in New York.

Architecture and Design Project Space: The House that Herman Built
A project by Jackie Sumell with Herman Wallace

The House That Herman Built began as a conversation and evolved into
a collaboration between the artist and activist Jackie Sumell and the
inmate and Black Panther, Herman Wallace, who has been in solitary
confinement at Angola in Lousiana since 1972. It is a four-year
correspondence that has grown out of Wallace's response to Sumell's
catalytic question "What kind of a house does a man who has lived in a
six-foot-by-nine-foot cell for over 30 years dream of?"

Through extensive letter writing, occasional phone calls, and visits
to prison, Jackie has been giving voice to Herman's imagination. The
project has manifested several different modalities, including over
300 letters, dozens of drawings, a CAD video of Herman's dream house,
and a full-scale reproduction of Herman's cell.
