Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all. Tours are Mondays and Fridays at 2pm, and Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10am.

In military parlance, the terms asymmetrical and symmetrical are employed to refer to political provocations and diplomatic démarches, escalation and tension, and power dynamics of the highest order. Not specific to war, these terms also refer more generally to a set of relations that define our connections to power.On the eve of Y2K, Russian­-born Olia Lialina—who is among the best-known participants in the 1990s net.art scene—first met American artist Cory Arcangel. Ever since, the artists have been deep in dialogue about the social and cultural impact of the Internet’s historical shift from a tool for military communication to an “information superhighway” promising open and equal exchange, and, finally, the increasingly asymmetric “content delivery system” we experience today. In this first collaboration, Arcangel and Lialina present complex bodies of work that arose through their continuing conversation. Curated by Caitlin Jones for Western Front, Vancouver; organized by Tim Griffin and Lumi Tan.

Opening Reception |
From the artist: "The use of combined board panels to create paintings began from the practical need to find a painting support that is stable, archival, relatively inexpensive and one that I could source here in Trinidad. It was a slow process but eventually I began considering these dividing edges of the panels as a way to rethink the version of space I was making in the picture. By treating each panel as a separate entity, while simultaneously building a larger scene, I started to break up the expected sequence by which I constructed the image. I was constantly confronted with these breaks on the surface - sometimes I ignored them, running color over the seams. In other moments I made abrupt stops at these boundaries. I used both fresh new panels or discarded panels from failed compositions lying around in the studio. And so it goes, in a kind of back and forth, I was at once disrupting and mending the image. I covered and obscured the underbelly of the painting by introducing a figure, elements of a landscape or architecture. Suddenly, the painting would be in the realm of recognizable things. Chance configurations and glimmers of abstraction gave way to a new superimposed image. This fluctuation is constant. The goal is always to make the parts whole again."

17c is the newest Big Dance Theater ensemble work, built around the problematic 17th century diaries of Samuel Pepys. Pepys danced, sang, strummed, shopped, strove, bullied and groped—and he recorded all of it in his diary, completely unfiltered. Using all the data to be found—the copiously prolific diaries themselves, Margaret Cavendish’s 17th century radical feminist play The Convent of Pleasure, three centuries of marginalia, and the ongoing annotations of the web-based devotees at www.pepysdiary.com – 17c dismantles an unchallenged historical figure and embodies the women’s voices omitted from Pepys’ intimate portrait of his life.
