Opening Reception | Angel Dust: New Work from a Pioneering Video Artist


This is Charles Atlas's site-specific commission is a series of installations. Atlas has been a pioneering figure in film and video for over four decades. Atlas has extended the limits of his medium, forging new territory in a far-reaching range of genres, stylistic approaches, and techniques. Throughout his production, the artist has consistently fostered collaborative relationships, working intimately with such artists and performers as Leigh Bowery, Michael Clark, Douglas Dunn, Marina Abramovic, Yvonne Rainer, Mika Tajima/New Humans, Antony and the Johnsons, and most notably Merce Cunningham, for whom he served as in-house videographer for a decade from the early 1970s through 1983; their close working relationship continued until Cunningham’s death in 2009.

Performance | Sounding Board: Scenes from Domestic Life (online)


Known for her critically acclaimed paintings, Tschabalala Self will present her first live performance in the form of brief scenes from a play that she has written and directed. Taking place on a stage designed by the artist as a sculpture that closely resembles her collage-paintings, a male and female actor will perform scenes of dialogue using humor and exaggerated sincerity in a conversation that ranges from literal to nonsensical, to explore emotional communication, gender roles and power play within intimate relationships. A Boney M cover band will perform some of their greatest hits to emphasize moments of the staged drama, akin to a chorus in a Greek play. The sculpture-esque stage--set in the amphitheater bandstand of Jackie Robinson Park in Central Harlem--will be designed and painted by Self, using the brightly colored geometry of her paintings. Self will design costumes and footwear for the performers, who appear to step out of her paintings onto the stage, bringing the domestic scenes she depicts in her canvases to life.
