HAPPENLAND. Sticking my Fingers in the Flesh of Utopia
Special event 
 
Screening and panel discussion with art historian Ágnes Berecz, critic and curator Gregory Volk, artists Meredith Drum and Cliff Evans, and curator/artist Eva Davidova. Moderator Daniela Kostova, artistic director of Radiator Gallery.
 
December 10, 68 PM  Radiator Gallery, 10-61 Jackson Avenue, LIC

6 – 6.30 PM: Reception and exhibition walk-through
6.30 – 7 PM: Artists' presentation
7 – 8 PM: Panel discussion
 
Happenland is build around the premise The artist has honored the brainwave.  What does it mean, "to honor"? The artist has made a process of association so direct that it wants to be immediate. What needs to happen in order to lure the concept residing in a mental space into a physical world—the world of the works, which the artist can make—excludes any symbolic processes that could contaminate this "passage". As an .exe file, the brainwave installs itself in both minds—emitter and receptor—and acts. 
 
There is humor in Happenland, and a recurrent play with dysfunctional ideals—from architecture ones, to philosophical, to almost metaphysical—and dead ends. In the case of MeredithCliff and Eva, the works are also clearly stepping into technologically new, semi-reality spaces: 3D animations, the Internet, dystopic imagery, and phantoms of consumerist futures. "Sticking their fingers in the flesh of utopia", the artists are reaching over some invisible fence, daring to grab and hold on to some utterly impossible, but imaginable "deed"—action, image or idea—and dragging it back to us.
 
Panelists are invited to discuss the provenance of the mental image and its coming into existence. How the novelty of an image affects its action? How are the artists navigating through permutations of symbols and structures? How are metaphor and contextual dependency resisted? Are we testing meanings for impossible futures?

Alternative Film/Video Belgrade 8-12 December 2015


Alternative Film/Video Belgrade

8-12 December 2015


 
4th Research Forum (Call for submissions)


 
The 2012 and 2013 research forums at AlternativeFilm/Video Belgrade resulted in the publication of the volume On Fragmentation (2014), edited by forumcurator Greg de Cuir, Jr, which anthologized essays based on the variouspresentations delivered. This volume included work by Dirk de Bruyn, Miriam DeRosa, Bruce Posner, and others. After the 3rd Alternative Film/VideoResearch Forum in 2014, focused on video art and including such participants asXavier García Bardón and Katrin Mundt, we are now organizing the 4thResearch Forum. This one-day event (on 10 December) running concurrently withthe festival will gather a group of curators, critics, artists, and researchersfor an intimate encounter where presentations will be delivered and discussionsheld concerning alternative works of film, video, and new media art.


 
It remains relevant to discuss video as an artisticmedium in this young 21st century, though maybe not in terms of'video art' and what this descriptive signified in the previous century.Digital video has been the lingua francaof moving images for many years now. In some cases we can speak of it as aconstituent of new media art, but it is also possible that we are already atthe dawn of another significant medium shift. Artists have long been using CGIin realizing their visions, and more recently they have been creating net artthat exists online. However, critical studies still need to properly accountfor the use of webcams, mobile media, GIFs, and virtual reality in contemporaryartistic practices. What are the museums and festivals of the future that willcollect and exhibit the moving image art to come? What new strategies docurators need to employ to situate and present challenging works with discretemethods and tools? How do we negotiate a nonlinear art world shaped byrapidly-changing technologies? Whether new media, digital, postmedia, or otherappellations that aspire to embrace current moments and objects, we want toinvestigate the contemporary practices in art and culture that lead the way tofuture modes of visual expression.  


 
In 2015 the Alternative Film/Video Research Forum willlook to explore and contextualize the emergence and development of new mediaart. However, we will not limit ourselves to the contemporary. We will also beinterested in projecting the possibilities of future art practices through bothcritical deduction and creative contemplation. As such, we invite contributionson artists, aesthetics, technology, exhibitions, conservation, curation, andother subjects relevant to understanding experiments in 21st centurymoving images. 


 
We are accepting abstracts of 300 words along with shortbiographies of 150 words for consideration. Selected participants will be givensupport toward their accommodation in Belgrade but are asked to cover travelexpenses on their own. Please forward inquiries and submissions to Greg deCuir, Jr, selector/curator for Alternative Film/Video Belgrade, no later than 1September 2015 at gdecuir@yahoo.com.   


 
AlternativeFilm/Video Belgrade (Serbia) is a legendary international festival in theBalkans for new film and video expression and one of the oldest manifestationsof its kind in Europe.

AlternativeFilm/Video Belgrade is organized by and hosted at Academic Film Center inBelgrade, which was established in 1958 as a ciné-club and where many iconicfilmmakers worked, including Tomislav Gotovac, Živojin Pavlović, RadoslavVladić, and others.

Александър Вълчев
RETRO ACTIVE 
Изложба / Open Studio

RETRO ACTIVE
Местя си ателието! Отвсякъде изскачат предмети, спомени, идеи и работи. Започнати и недовършени серии, които не са видели бял свят. Преходни търсения, бележещи края на един етап и начало на друг, но които не принадлежат към нито един от тях. Те отразяват моментите на промяна между мъчителния и болезнен край и трудното, но сладко начало. И сега, когато и аз самият съм в преход, ми се струва , че моментът тези работи да бъдат показани е подходящ. А в противовес на трудно смилаемите формати и сюжети, всички работи ще бъдат на достъпни цени.



RETRO ACTIVE
Exhibition / Open Studio

RETRO ACTIVE
Local studio! Pop up everywhere objects memories, ideas and work. Started and unfinished series that have not seen the day light. Transitional searches, marking the end of one stage and the beginning of another, but do not belong to any of them. They reflect the moments of change between the painful end and difficult,  but sweet start. And now, when I myself am in transition, it seems to me that the moment these works to be displayed is appropriate. And in contrast to the non-digestible formats and themes, all works will be affordable.

Изложба на Станимир Генов в ХГ Кюстендил 06.08 - 22.09 / откриване на 6 август

/for English, scroll down/ 



Уважаеми колеги, драги зрители,
с удоволствие ви информирам че:

ХУДОЖЕСТВЕНА ГАЛЕРИЯ ,,ВЛАДИМИР ДИМИТРОВ – МАЙСТОРА"
КЮСТЕНДИЛ - 2500, ул. ,,П. Евтимий" № 20, тел.: 078/ 52-31-72, 078/ 55-00-29
 
представя 

"Изложба" на Станимир Генов
Изложбата ще се открие на 6 август, в 17.30ч. 
 
Ще може да се види между 6 август и 22 септември в незавършената част на галерия „Владимир  Димитров  –  Майстора". „Изложба"-та е съставена от три отделни серии, съзадени специално за най-значимата галерия за живопис в страната – тази в Кюстендил. Сериите "Навън", "Искам те на мое място" и "Други" обединяват платна, инсталационно групирани в отделни кoмпозиции.

Серията "Навън", беше представена в галерия „Шипка 6" на СБХ през декември, 2014година и предизвика силен зрителски интерес (http://artrecord.org/2015/01/ 20/outside/). Тя предлага разгърнат в пространството художествен модел на вътрешния мир на автора. Произведенията, както и в предишни художествени проекти на Генов, извеждат класическата техника на високото изкуство в граничната територия на естетическия и пластически ексцес. Без да напуска, а напротив, задълбавайки в изящното като характеризиращо изкуството, авторът формулира нова йерархия в традиционната реалия, резултат или екзалтирана есенция на етичните катаклизми в съвременното общество.

Серията "Искам те на мое място" е въвеждаща за изложбата и е разположена в първата незавършена зала на галерията. Недвусмислено, с поканата отправена в заглавието на серията, авторът въвежда зрителя в условното пространство на визуализацията на своя личен опит. С "Искам те на мое място", Станимир Генов предизвиква субективното като маниер на художествена работа и отношение. Това е процес, а в настоящата изложба и концептуален жест - проява на една традиция в живописта, която е едновременно радикална и изконна.
 
Серията "Други" обединява множество разноформатни композиции, които демонстрират на практика този процес на освобождаване от изобразителност по класически начин, който обаче носи тезата на радикална естетическа актуализация.

Станимир Генов (1982, София) завършва Националната художествена академия, специалност живопис при проф. Б. Бояджиев. Работи с видео, инсталация и живопис като балансира, в работата си, концептуален заряд, чист експресивен изказ и създаване на комплексен художествен дискурс, в който зрителят активно преживява (срещата си с) изкуството.http://stanimir.eu 

За гостите от София е организиран транспорт (6 август, 14.00 ч.) от площад „Св. Александър Невски" (зад НХА). Записванията са на интернет адрес: stanimirgenov@abv.bg  местата са ограничени.
Изложбата на Станимир Генов в ХГ „Владимир  Димитров  –  Майстора", Кюстендил се реализира с любезната подкрепа на Гауденц Б. Руф, и „АртЕкспрес" ЕООД http://www.artexpress.bg/  .  Курирана е от Йово Панчев
 
Kyustendil Art Galley "Vladimir Dimitrov - Maystora"
presents
AN EXHIBITION BY STANIMIR GENOV 
Opening - 5:30PM, on August 6th at the Kyustendil Art Galley "Vladimir Dimitrov - Maystora" will be on display until September 22. The Exhibition, created especially for the leading Bulgarian gallery in showing painting. It features three series of works, OutsideI Want You in My Place and Other.

Outside has already been presented before audience in a short solo show at the Union of Bulgarian Artists' Gallery "Shipka 6" last December.  http://artrecord. org/2015/01/20/outside/
As a "universal artistic model", it offers an extensive view of the artist's internal landscape. The works, as in previous projects by Genov, lead a classical technique of high art use to the borderline territory of aesthetic excess. Without leaving, just the contrary, emphasizing the fineness as characterizing art, the author offers a new hierarchy in the traditional realia, coming from the cataclysms of contemporary society.

I Want You in My Place is the introductory part of the show, as it meets the audience in the first of several uncompleted halls of the gallery. This literal invitation introduces the viewer to the conditional space of the artists' visual rendering of his personal experience. With the inconsistency of this invitation Genov challenges the subjective manner of creative work and attitude. Here, more as a conceptual gesture, but also as a process revealing a practice in painting that is simultaneously radical and primordial.

The Others unites a number of compositions of various format that demonstrate in practice this process of emancipation form the imagery in a very classical way, which however eloquently carries the thesis of a radical aesthetic actualization.

Stanimir Genov (1982, Sofia) graduated the National Art Academy with painting in the class of Prof. B. Boyadjiev. He works with video, installation and painting. In his work he balances conceptual charge, pure expressive voice and molds them into a complex artistic discourse, where the viewer actively meets art.  http://stanimir.eu

Visitors from Sofia can have a free bus ride to Kyustendil for the opening (August 6th at 14:00) upon request sent at stanimirgenov@abv.bg .

The Exhibition by Stanimir Genov at Art Gallery "Vladimir Dimirov – Maystora", Kyustendil happens thanks to the support of Gaudenz B. Ruf and ArtЕxpressLtd.
The Exhibition is curated by Yovo Panchev
