  • Sal Randolph: The Order of the Third Bird at Bard BGC January 25
    body known as The Order of the Third Bird which would seem at least in its modern incarnation to be a clubbish and somewhat arcane association of histrionic aesthetes The manifest form of the Order s current work takes the shape of ritual performances of collective attention to works of art To what end A fragment of their own writings offers the following The number of accumulated works of art in the world now exceeds the number of persons on the planet If each of these human artifacts can be understood as a reified request for attention the nature and scale of the problem immediately becomes apparent The Order of the Third Bird an association of like minded individuals together with an intimate penumbra of splitters and apostates who work at the convergence of performance and aesthetic theory have devoted themselves to this overwhelming cause Making use of available documentation Burnett and Randolph will attempt a brief synopsis of the Order s principles and preoccupations But the focus of the evening will be the ongoing efforts to sift an emerging archive that bears on the genealogy of the Order s practices Is it possible to trace the history of the

  • Sal Randolph: news
    art space with one last act of social dreaming This final gallery project is a group exhibition themed around the small river town of Utopia located 45 miles out of Cincinnati along U S Route 52 The town is marked by a green road sign a convenience store with a single gas pump a handful of half mile long streets that run down to the riverbank and a Ohio Historical Marker that reads Utopia Ohio was founded in 1844 by followers of French philosopher Charles Fourier Fourierism based on utopian socialism and the idea of equal sharing of investments in money and labor reached peak popularity in the United States about 1824 until 1846 The experimental community of Utopia dissolved in 1846 due to lack of financial success and disenchantment with Fourierism John O Wattles leader of a society of spiritualists purchased the land and brought his followers to Utopia in 1847 The spiritualists who sought secluded areas to practice their religion built a two story brick house on the shore of the Ohio River A flash flood on December 13 1847 killed most of Wattles people The majority of the few survivors left the area Thus the idea of the perfect society or utopia died Henry Jernegan of Amelia laid out the present village in 1847 Utopia perhaps the most confidently named was only one of approximately 270 utopian communities existed in the United States between 1787 and 1919 Due to Ohio s unique location on the nation s frontier the state found itself the site of much of this activity in both religious settlements established by Shakers and Amish as well as secular attempts based on the writings of Charles Fourier and Welsh social reformer Robert Owen These secular communities Utopia included while short lived are memorable for the challenges they presented to existing social and economic order presenting alternative notions about religion marriage family sexuality property ownership and wage labor Revisiting and interacting with these historical moments provides a window into an era of American history where frontiers were both physical and ideological and where quixotic or even bizarre ideas of how people can best coexist were of primary interest to these diverse populations and their thinkers Such communities were so to speak efforts in which political science economics and sociology were wedded with the literary imagination Our final gallery project Utopia OH will present different reflections on American utopian history These works range from those that look to the specific history and spirit of the town of Utopia those that address the narratives and philosophies that led to the short 19th century flourish of likeminded projects those that look at the the the diminished presence of a utopian spirit in contemporary American political and social thinking and finally those that look to the future with a Fourierist sense of curiosity whim and possibility In this way this project is both a love letter and a fond farewell stuffed full of history and myth nostalgia and wishful thinking for the future as only goodbyes can be PARTICIPATING ARTISTS INCLUDE Randall Szott in conversation with Shannon Stratton Nancy Zastudil and Duncan

  • Sal Randolph: Money Actions in the Ljubljana Biennial
    the exhibition which seeks above all to present as fully as possible the energy and vitality of this trend a selection of art events is presented in four different categories based on typical themes in contemporary art violence generosity emptiness and the search for the sacred and the ritualistic These themes were selected among other reasons because the events that address them also meet the requirement of not being anything novel either in the iconographic motifs of art or in actual human or social practice Events that allow us to partake in violence with impunity in the artist s shamanic violence to himself in Dionysian or absurdist rituals or in the creation of an idyllic communitas for the sharing of a common meal these represent practices that humans have been doing and even depicting for millennia In the exhibition as well as in an extensive programme of artistic and theoretical events the Biennial asks the questions Why and how has the event in particular become a suitable vehicle for such a great variety of artistic aims aesthetics and content Is the choice of this medium a response to specific impulses and voids in our desacralized everyday existence Also what are the potential dangers of such a development given that it is happening more and more in the completely formalized framework of art institutions which in recent decades not only house and exhibit contemporary art but also commission and produce it thus becoming commissioners of contemporary art of a type and scope as only the aristocracy and the church had been before them List of exhibited artists and projects Ant Farm Oreet Ashery Bababa International Robert Barry Nina Beier Marie Lund Jerzy Bereś Karmelo Bermejo Anna Berndtson Conny Blom János Borsos Tania Bruguera Graciela Carnevale Anetta Mona Chişa Lucia Tkáčová Marcus
