PROTEST! Art Exhibition

And so I came across this posting from another one of those blogs that finds itself in internetland…

And being that the title of this blog finds itself called Occupy Art that seemingly wants to support those Occupy Wall Street protests with all things Occupy Wall Street art, it seems fitting to mention on this blog that Theater for the New City will be having a “PROTEST!” art show, in addition, or at the same time, or before, or during our Occupy Art Show at Theater for the New City November 12th also. And we would like to invite you to view the “PROTEST!” art exhibition while you are at the Theater for the New City during the Occupy Art Show also. And that announcement for the “PROTEST!” art exhibition reads as follows:

Theater for the New City, Crystal Field, Executive Director, presents “PROTEST!” a visual arts exhibit curated by Carolyn Ratcliffe featuring the works of Artists:

Amy Cohen Banker , David Barish, Elliot Berke, Lois Carlo , Kathy Creutzburg, Carla Cubit, Dennis Edge, Lauren Edmond, Haim Elisha, Galante, Alan Gastelum, Susann Ferris-Jones, Randy Jones, Hieke Kerbs, Charles Krezell, Kathleen McDermott, Jerry Pagane, Carolyn Ratcliffe, Mike Rimbaud, Gene Reynolds, Bonnie Rosenstock, Morena Saenz, Suki Weston, Suzanne Wilde, Laura Zelasnic

The exhibit explores concepts and issues of Protest! in painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media and text. Demonstrations have spread across the globe as people demand changes – a refusal to accept the status quo of dictatorships, corporate greed and laying waste to the environment. Join us for our

3rd Annual SLF 4th of July Rooftop BBQ & Dance Party

In case you didn’t already know, our rooftop party has become the de facto place to be during 4th of July Weekend if you’re looking to avoid the tourist crowd, cheesy parties and overpriced bars.

Now in our 3rd year, we’re moving to a new rooftop in the heart of Brooklyn and will feature our good friends Pleasuremaker and Senor Oz from the notorious AFROLICIOUS party in San Fransisco. They will surely bring the dance party to a new level! People’s Champs return with their energetic live performance and the SLF DJ crew and friends Kunal Merchant and Seif al-Din of Music Without Borders and Lily Vanilli of Nana Chill will keep the vibes with their trademark eclectic blend of House, Hip-Hop, Soul, Disco, Afrobeat, Reggae and more.

NOTE: The party will be on SUNDAY, JULY 3 (and NOT on the 4th itself, so you’re not hurting on Tuesday when you go back to work, because we love you like that).

NO COVER. Bring cash for the bar and the BBQ.

Hope to see y’all there and feel free to invite friends.

Make Music New York 2011

And that festival of what seems like the end all of the be all of free music events of Make Music New York is happening again this year. And Make Music New York is a live, free musical celebration across the city that takes place each June 21, the longest day of the year. On that day, hundreds of public spaces throughout the five boroughs become impromptu stages for over 1,000 free concerts. And I know that music and arts festival for practically everyone who is an artist, musician or anything in between is happening again this year because some friends who are playing there, that Metro New York Newspaper Program, Time Out New York and all of those Facebook invites for that Make Music New York event say so. And that program seems to read like no other program before or after it with seemingly a million, bazillion musicians, artists and any other kind of performer in between listed as playing at seemingly a million, bazillion and more places throughout that city of New York on this June 21st of a solstice day. And according to that Make Music New York website, some of those performances and events listed on that schedule include Make Music New York’s 4th Annual Punk Island curated by ABC NO RIO’s HC/Punk Collective on Governors Island with over 50 punk bands, Mass Appeal where you can bring your own instrument and join one of 17 massive concerts, Make Music Wall Street, Mass Appeal Mass, Inuksuit, Yoko Ono’s Secret Piece, Swelter: Brass on Central Park Lake, Sing For Hope Pop-Up Pianos, Second Line Down the High Line with Hungry March Band, Mike Doughty at City Winery, Hoketus, Columbia University’s Miller Theatre in an event co presented and sponsored by places like Joe’s Pub, River To River, Carnegie Hall, Jazzmobile, Central Park Summerstage, MATA, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Symphony Space, American Opera Projects, WNYC, GigMaven and many, many, many more.

Bushwick Open Studios 2011

And being that on this day finds itself another one of those bloggerless get rich internet quickless blagh your way to the bankless days, I somehow find myself blah blogging about events, events and more events lately in my attempt to maintain content for this blog whenever possible. And so on this day I found myself going my way to tour that studio tour of that Arts In Bushwick, Bushwick Open Studios that’s taking place in that neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn to be found in that city of New York, June 3rd through 5th, and even with that L train seemingly being re routed and not wanting to go that way on this day. And so it’s that neighborhood of Bushwick or is it Bushburg, or Williamswick in the latest of the trendy artist scene of the Soho’s, East Village’s and Williamsburg’s of the world that wants to find itself migrating further and further east, or something like that. And according to that Arts in Bushwick, Bushwick Open Studios catalog, festival events and map which seemingly has a bazillion and more artist studios, events and parties listed in it, some of this years artists, participants, performances, streets and venues include:
Grace Exhibition Space, Norte Maar, Factory Fresh, Brooklyn Fire Proof, East, The Bodega, NY Arts, Chez Bushwick, The McKibbin Show,Onderdonk Sculpture Garden, Junto Gallery, Camel Arts Space, Goodbye Blue Moneay, The Bushwick Starr, Palmetto Air, Nurture Art, Varet Street, Morgan Avenue, Knickerbocker Avenue, Thames Street, Varick Avenue, Jefferson Street, Troutman Street, Bushwick Avenue, Hart Street, Bogart Street,Seigel Street, Flushing Avenue, Broadway, Melrose Street, Myrtle Avenue, Morgan Avenue, Wyckoff Avenue, Starr Street, St. Nicholas Avenue, Dekalb Avenue and a whole lot more.

Squat Or Rot


Squat or rot. The squatters are your neighbors. Housing is a human right. Squat the world. Free the land. If you need a home, take one. Whose right is it to say the land is for sale anyway. No one is free when others are oppressed. And so goes a host of other sayings and philosophies when it comes to that word squatting and living rent and tax free, or something like that. And so I found this email that arrived in my email inbox the other day that I thought to repost on my blog for those squatter, housing and beyond events, because hey, it’s less writing sometimes, I think. And what if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State?

Three upcoming events on squatting in NYC‏

Hello all –

I wanted to let you know about three quite different events coming up, all about squatting in NYC. Full details below

1. Panel on squats, social centers, and autonomous spaces at the NYC Anarchist Book Fair, Saturday April 9, 11-12:30

2. I am giving a paper on adverse possession and historical documentation, based on the 13th st case, at a conference at CUNY on Monday, April 11, from 1:30-3:00

3. Matt Metzgar and Peter Spagnuolo are giving a talk about The LES Squatter Homesteader Archives Project at Pete’s Candy Store on Monday, April 11, at 7:30

1. Squats, Social Centers and Autonomous Spaces.

Saturday, April 9, 2011 @ the Anarchist Book Fair. 11 am – 12:30 pm

55 Washington Sq. New York, NY 10012

Squatting is a key activist tactic to address the needs for housing and space for political action. Together with occupation, this kind of organized trespass is becoming increasingly important in our repertoire of direct action tactics today. What is the present-day experience of squatting as a political act? In other countries, occupied social centers organize political activity in the cities. Is U.S. squatting hopelessly disorganized and decentralized? What have been the challenges of opening new spaces? What have been the challenges and rewards of passing on knowledge from one generation to the next?

These are some of the questions we will address and this is the people who will respond to them

Alan Moore: Co-founder of both ABC NoRio and Colab. *Live from Paris @ La Generale.

Howard Brandstein: Homesteading organizer and Director of Sixth Street Community Center.

Frank Morales: Episcopal priest, squatter and housing organizer.

Marta Rosario: A long time resident at Umbrella House Squat and an exceptional vocalist.

Ryan Acuff: Housing organizer and member of Take Back the Land.

Moderators:

Amy Starecheski: Oral historian, doctoral student in Anthropology at the CUNY Graduate Center, and former squatter.

Sebastian Gutierrez: Teaches in the Film & Media department in CUNY’s Hunter College and documents testimonial video events in NYC squats.

2. Mini-conference: “Producing History: Place, Memory, and Documentation”

Monday, April 11, 2011
11:00 am – 4:00 pm
The Graduate Center, CUNY

365 Fifth Avenue, Room 9205

11:00 – 12:30 PANEL: Producing History at Sites of Memory
“Sites & Reflexivity: Narratives at the Manzanar WWII Camp NHS”
— Rachel Daniell
“Exhibiting Atrocity: Memorial Museums & the Production of the Past”

3. THE ONCE AND FUTURE SQUATTER:
with Matt Metzgar of the Lower East Side Squatter Homesteader Archive Project and Peter Spagnuolo, co-founder of the Lower East Side Squatter Homesteader Archive Project.

FREE LECTURE!!!
Monday, April 11 7:30pm
Pete’s Candy Store (709 Lorimer St. Brooklyn)

In the 1980’s and ’90’s the squatter-homesteaders of New York City’s Lower East Side created an urban movement attempting to answer directly the housing needs of low-income and homeless persons by seizing abandoned tenement buildings and improvising their own homes and culture. The evening will address current efforts by squatters and homesteaders to create a research archive “from the ground up”-collecting, preserving and organizing the evidence of underground, insurgent movement-as well as the significance such a collection may have for scholars and the public. With reference to other American cities, the pro’s and con’s of strategies of direct methods of housing, the predominance of squatting as a global phenomena, and the specific cases of “Social Center” squatting in Europe, and its lack in the USA–the evening hopes to make palpable an overlooked, yet palpable legacy that boldly proclaims: Homeless/Artist/Activist: House Thyself, Socialize the Community!
Have a great squatting and more day.

A New Orleans Jazz Festival

And hey again bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blog, and in between reading all of those headline news of the day, somewhere between that Japan crisis, the middle east and now Israel and Jerusalem unrest, all of which seem to give me religious and apocalyptic thoughts with images of the world going to hell in a hand basket, I still somehow find myself blogging about a New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. And how do I know that New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is happening during that month of April and May? Because that advertisement for that festival in that issue of the New York Village Voice says so. And even though that festival still seems to be a ways away, it seems as if it could be one of those New Orleans mardi gras kinds of events. And according to that Village Voice ad, some of this years performers include: Arcade Fire, Bon Jovi, Jimmy Buffet, Kid Rock, John Mellencamp, The Neville Brothers, The Strokes, Lauryn Hill, Trombone Shorty, Cyndi Lauper, Wyclef Jean, The Decemberists, Arlo Guthrie, Fantasia, Kenny G, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Mighty Clouds of Joy, Rebirth Brass Band, and a whole lot more. And this festival New Orleans Rocks. Have a great music and more day.
