About Deep Listening – The Center For Deep Listening

Composer and pioneer Pauline Oliveros, founder of the practice of Deep Listening, describes the practice as “a way of listening in every possible way to everything possible, to hear no matter what you are doing.” There’s more to listening than meets the ear! Deep Listening, as developed by Oliveros, explores the difference between the involuntary nature of hearing and the voluntary, selective nature of listening. The practice includes bodywork, sonic meditations, interactive performance, listening to the sounds of daily life, nature, one’s own thoughts, imagination and dreams. It cultivates a heightened awareness of the sonic environment, both external and internal, and promotes experimentation, improvisation, collaboration, playfulness and other creative skills vital to personal and community growth.

Queens Museum

Queens Museum | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
To accompany the current exhibition Mierle Laderman Ukeles: Maintenance Art, the Queens Museum presents Artists In/Of The City, a special convening that explores the current wave of new artist residency programs in city agencies taking place throughout the nation. Beyond Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ almost four decade long artist residency within the NYC Department of Sanitation, NYC’s Department of Cultural Affairs has recently initiated artist residencies inside three other city agencies and is working on more. Cities around the country, including Boston, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Kansas City, and Los Angeles, are experimenting with their own versions of residencies within municipal agencies and departments. 

 Artists In/Of The City convening provides an open space to share and discuss the aspirations and experiences of artists and their city agency partners involved in these kinds of residencies in NYC and across the country. We’ve also invited those in charge of organizing these residencies to share how they initiated and structured their residencies given their local contexts. We hope that these examples will illuminate the best ways moving forward to harness artists’ unique creative and critical contributions to how urban systems work. The Artists In/Of The City convening starts with a brief examination by Ukeles of the artworks that inspired the event from the Touch Sanitation Show, 1984. 

Three works originally conceived for Touch Sanitation Show have been reimagined for the Queens Museum, and we will meet in front of One Year’s Worktime II, 1984/2016, a full year of work shifts in the form of clock faces has been silkscreened over a gradient of colors representing the seasons which is installed on the Museum’s Large Wall in the Main Atrium. We will then assemble around the Peace Table, originally commissioned in 1997 by the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art for Ukeles’s installation Unburning Freedom Hall. Made of layers of cobalt blue stained glass and plate glass in the shape of a halo, it will be suspended from 50 feet above the central atrium of the Queens Museum. 

 This setting for the convening, a literal round table, has inspired a format for the convening consisting of three concentric rings of guests. The first ring will be Presenters, artists and city officials with direct experience with residences at municipal agencies whose presentations will act as conversation starters for the convening. The second ring will be Respondents, other artists who have been asked to prepare questions to bring to the table that can deepen the conversation. The third ring will be Participants, other invited artists and the general public interested in the theme that can keep the conversation going with their own questions and comments during the convening. 

 Confirmed guests for the convening include: 
 Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Artist-in-Residence at NYC Department of Sanitation Vito Turso, Deputy Commissioner of Public Information at NYC Department of Sanitation Norman Steisel, Former Commissioner at NYC Department of Sanitation Brendan Sexton, Former Commissioner at NYC Department of Sanitation Tom Finkelpearl, Commissioner of NYC Department of Cultural Affairs Tania Bruguera, Artist-in-Residence at NYC Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs Nisha Agarwal, NYC Commissioner of Immigrant Affairs Loree Sutton, Commissioner of NYC Department of Veteran’s Services Jules Rochielle, Artist-in-Residence at NYC Department of Veteran’s Services Christine Tinsley, Artist-in-Residence at NYC Department of Veteran’s Services Gladys Carrion, Commissioner of NYC Administration for Children’s Services The Lost Collective, Artists-in-Residence at NYC Administration for Children’s Services Marcus Young, former City Artist, City of St Paul, MN Alan Nakagawa, Artists-in-Residence at Los Angeles Department of Transportation Julie Burros, Chief of Arts and Culture, City of Boston Gulgun Kayim, Chief of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, City of Minneapolis

Open call for artists and curators for Extra City, 2017–19 | e-flux

Open call for artists and curators for Extra City, 2017–19 | e-flux | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Extra City is a Kunsthal that finds inspiration in the city for depicting different visions of our future, by encouraging new links between contemporary (inter)national art and artists, researchers, and city dwellers. The full mission and vision can be found here. Last year, Extra City Kunsthal in Antwerp updated its mission and renewed its structure. From 2017 onwards, it will be coordinated by a director who will carry out the concrete implementation of the programme together with a small team of (international) curators and artists, each for a maximum period of three years. In that context, Extra City is launching an open call for project proposals to be realised during 2017–19. Applicants can submit a proposal for a one-off project or for a long-term, intensive collaboration via a segment of the programme or a project spread over a maximum of three years. The submitted projects can be very diverse: we welcome proposals for exhibitions, creations, public programmes, workshops, lecture series, debates, research, film screenings, performances, reflective works, publications, discursive projects or completely new formats. The proposals must align with the new mission and vision of the organisation, but it has been a conscious choice to provide very little in the way of limitations or concrete direction at this stage. We are instead giving voice to curators and artists, in order to create from the submitted proposals a sharp, urgent, varied, and pre-eminent programme for the coming years. An international jury will make a selection of the submitted projects for further elaboration and realisation. Submission deadline for project proposal: Friday, October 14, 8pm

Thomas Hirschhorn & Santiago Sierra | e-flux | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
ASAKUSA is delighted to announce the exhibition Radical Democracy with artists Thomas Hirschhorn and Santiago Sierra, whose art practices engage with selected social groups, often facing ethical questions. The exhibited works articulate divisive fissures of political and economic disparities existing beyond sanctioned consensus, and provoke the agonistic practice of valuing and sustaining the dissent—democratic dialectics advocated by art critic Claire Bishop.

The Keeper opens | e-flux | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
This summer the New Museum presents The Keeper, a major exhibition dedicated to the act of preserving and collecting objects, artworks, and images. A reflection on the impulse to save both the most precious and the apparently valueless, the exhibition brings together a variety of imaginary museums, personal collections, and unusual assemblages, revealing the devotion with which artists, collectors, scholars, and hoarders have created sanctuaries for endangered images and artifacts. In surveying varied techniques of display, the exhibition also reflects on the function and responsibility of museums within multiple economies of desire. The Keeper opens on July 20, 2016.
The centerpiece of this exhibition is Partners (The Teddy Bear Project) (2002), a vast display conceived by Ydessa Hendeles.
