Brother Lovers

BROTHER LOVERS

 

A fateful glance between two ancient warriors in a modern-day disco club resurrects a 5,000-year-old family tragedy and sparks a tense romance.

BROTHER LOVERS is an experimental play written and directed by Brooklyn-based performance and video artist Zavé Martohardjono. The play reinterprets the Mahabharata to reimagine two mythic heroes in a timeless queer tale of love, exile, and disco.

BROTHER LOVERS will première on Friday July 18 at 9pm and Sunday July 20 at 12pm at the Wild Project at 195 East 3rd Street in the Lower East Side as part of the 2014 Fresh Fruit Festival’s program “All Out Shorts III: Legends Through a Glass Queerly.” The play features a diverse cast of queer dancers and theater artists. Interested in crafting a universal narrative about belonging, displacement, and desire, Martohardjono directs and casts BROTHERS LOVERS with performers interchangeably playing its two main characters. Martohardjono weaves in autobiography and poetic personal reflections on identity as a mixed-race Indonesian-American far from “home” and considers Arjuna and Karna’s parable through a genderqueer and transgender lens.

For tickets, please visit: http://www.freshfruitfestival.com/2014-fresh-fruit-schedule/

Crossing the Hyphen: Recent Works of Pallavi Sharma

May 31- July 9, 2014
Addison Street Windows Gallery
2018 Addison Street
Berkeley, CA
Opening Reception: June 7th – 1pm – 3pm

The Addison Street Windows Gallery proudly presents Crossing the Hyphen: Art by Pallavi Sharma, an exhibition organized by curator, Demetri Broxton. Crossing the Hyphen reinvents recent installations and video art created by Pallavi Sharma. Sharma’s work is a subtle conversation in identity politics in America. Herself an Indian-American, Sharma explores how the hyphen serves a dual role: allowing the new immigrant to acknowledge their national origins while also allowing for a reinvented identity within a new country. Her work explores the blurring of national identities which occurs through the process of naturalization and movement. In her piece Carry-On, a suitcase lies open filled with grass and grass seeds. The work represents both the immigrant and the cultural heritage an immigrant brings with them—seeds to be planted in a new land. The piece poses the question of whether these seeds will always be exotic and separate, or over time will they become integrated into the larger cultural landscape?

Pallavi Sharma was born and raised in India and immigrated to United States in 1997. She received her BFA and MFA from the Faculty of Fine Arts Baroda, India and received her Ph.D. in Art History from India’s National Museum Institute of History of Art and Conservation, New Delhi, India. Pallavi’s work has been exhibited widely at venues including the Queens Museum of Art, Exit Art, Art Asia Pacific, and Bishop Museum. At present, she is a board member ofAsian American Women Artist Association (AAWAA) and Director of ‘Inner Eye Art’ an ArtConsulting Firm specializing in South Asian Art.

Demetrie Broxton is an independent curator. He was born in Oakland, CA and holds an M.A. in Museum Studies from San Francisco State University. Broxton has been curator with the City of Berkeley since February 2014. His past curatorial projects include Past Forward at the Sargent Johnson Gallery and Decoding Identity at Museum of the African Diaspora.

Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art at Concordia University. The journal is co-edited by DAAN members Alexandra Chang and Alice Ming Wai Jim and will launch in Winter/Spring 2015. The call for manuscripts has begun and the deadline for the first issue is June 1st (see listing below for more information). The Virtual Asian American Art Museum Project, a partnership between New York University, Getty Research Institute and Smithsonian Institution was also discussed.

The DAAN panel “Asia / Americas: Praxis and Pedagogy” discussed important issues of artistic production, teaching and the academy in relation to the conceptual hemispheric framing of Asia / Americas with panel chair Alice Ming Wai Jim and panelists Richard Fung, Beatrice Glow, Valerie Soe, and discussant Alexandra Chang. After the panel, DAAN members new and old gathered for dinner to continue the conversation in downtown Chicago.

Floating Library — call for participation — Beatrice Glow

 Inline image 2
 
An Announcement and Request from DAAN member Beatrice Glow:
I have been awarded the Franklin Furnace Fund to create FLOATING LIBRARY for the month of September 2014, aboard the historic Lilac Museum Steamship located at Pier 25 along the Hudson River. This pop-up library will host a public reading space on the main deck, a listening room with sound art for introspection, a copy/scan room, workshops (book binding, mapmaking, DIY projects, etc), roundtables, debates (pirates, dreamers and think tanks), and performances. All library visitors will need to power-off their cell phones upon entering. Currently confirmed partnering organizations include Poets House and Center for Book Arts.
 
Given your network of interdisciplinary artists and thinkers, I am writing to see if you would be able to help spread the word:
 
1) PARTICIPATE/SHARE my OPEN CALL for unpublished/little known book projects, manifestoes, and artist writings. Submissions are due May 16th.  
 
2) DONATE books with an emphasis on social movements, art, mapping, poetry, environmental health and children literature to build our reading material collection.
 
3) SOUND EQUIPMENT: DO you have leads to where I can get small-sized music players (small mp3 or ipods) and headphones either donated or on loan? I need 6 sets for the Listening Room installation. Here is the list of participating artists and a page indicating other items we need.
 
4)  LIKE the Floating Library on Facebook to get updates on the progress!
 
5) VOLUNTEERS are needed to man the ship in September. Let me know if you have a few hours to spare and are interested in being onboard.
 
5) COME by the Floating Library Sept. 6- Oct. 3rd, Wed – Sun 2PM-7PM for some mental spa time!
—————————————————c’est tout!————————-—————————-
 
I hope to hear from you and welcome any suggestions!
 
My very best,
Beatrice

Aquarium from Austronesia — NYC Pier 25

Aquarium from Austronesia

Aboard the Historic Lilac Steamship
Pier 25, New York, NY | June 16th, 23rd and 30th, 2012 | 8:00PM-11:30PM
http://www.austronesian-institute.org/

“The boat has…been for our civilization, from the sixteenth century until the present…the greatest reserve of the imagination.” – Michel Foucault

In a series of summer Saturday soirees under the orchestration of artist Beatrice Glow, and in­ collaboration with new media artist Matt Romein, the Aquarium from Austronesia will arrive on the Hudson River. The historic Lilac Steamship, built in 1933 and currently berthed at Pier 25 in Tribeca, will be transformed by a site-responsive installation consisting of video and illuminated sculptures that map and visualize Austronesia — the region that shares linguistic roots originating from Taiwan, spanning west to Madagascar and east to Easter Island.

The art work celebrates five thousand years of transpacific human interconnectivity and migration through the visual metaphor of illuminated drawings of fish from Austronesia that conjoin islands to islands, continents to continents, and cultures to cultures. By approaching Austronesian prehistory on the Lilac Steamship, the romanticized Gauguinesque Pacific is juxtaposed against the backdrop of the colonial aesthetics of WWII era maritime instruments. The exhibition seeks to re-envision the possibilities of dissolving long engendered prejudices and fomenting new spaces for reflections.
Each evening will feature a live art programming with new work and improvisations by Angelica Negron’s musical ensemble Arturo en el Barco, Masami Tomihisa and musicians, Peptalk (Preshish Moments and Shayna Dunkleman), Chuck Bettispresenting Silver Process, and conceptual butoh performance by Sindy Butz.

Special Thanks to the Generous Support of: The Lilac Preservation Project and its Museum Director, Mary Habstritt; Steve Macfarlane, The Special Consultant; Gerry Weinstein; David Hodgson; Reid Bingham; Wei-Chuan Chiang “Riyar” at the Fisheries Research Institute, COA; John Zorn; Anne and Andy Guo; Jeremiah Cymerman; Joaquin Goldstein of ZonaTreinta; Mauricio Montesinos; Christina Sun; Sean Galagan; Helaine Gawlica; Hiroshi Shafer.
