~FRANKIE MARTIN/LIFE OR DEATH/MONKEYTOWN
( . . . if that isn’t LEIF RITCHEY – I don’t know, who is !!)
FRANKIE MARTIN wrote to tell us – she will be showing two videos, ‘Born Again’ and ‘Who Died?’
as FM says herself: “This is the new shizz”.
‘Born Again ‘ is about the rebirth of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. ‘Who Died?’ is about death and the transcendence of the human body.
the show is called: ‘LIFE OR DEATH’ !!
Also on the program: ERIKA SOMYGI’S ‘Faces’ – a painting animation; LEIDY CHURCHMAN’S status quo vide-oh; and JESSI CIOCCI and JAIMIE MOHR’S depiction of the modern life, feeding ourselves to the world…
there will also be minimalist performance and …”we are changing all the time,the future you/we cannot guess.
Maybe we will be older than Jesus, but maybe not … if you’re lucky you get comedy, if not tragedy. Come and figure it out for yourself. We are equals ”
YIKES !!- do we detect some diss, grudge, and even, anger over … the arbitrary & small-minded curatorial decisions – at the supposedly cutting edge, but mostly disappointing – NEW MUSEUM !!
or, is it just hard not to be the newest kids on the block, anymore ??
maybe it’s just the sucky economy & the big box monsters !! maybe it’s both !!
