Loophole to Happiness

Opening: 24. 5. 2011 from 6 p.m.

Exhibition dates: 25. 5.  2011 – 7. 8. 2011

Curated by: Maja and Reuben Fowkes

Participating artists: Zbyn?k Baladrán, Adam Chodzko, Petra Feriancova, Siniša Labrovi?, Ciprian Muresan, Csaba Nemes, Nada Prlja, Janek Simon, Péter Szabó and Katarina Ševi?.

Loophole to Happiness sets out to locate and explore the freedom-enhancing loopholes that exist on the margins of repressive social systems from East European communism to global capitalism. Faced with the perfection of techniques of absorbing criticism and the systematic mobilisation of our creativity, sociability and sentiments for economic ends, the search is on for new forms of resistance to the endless pressure of production. The exhibition takes the inventive strategies of worker resistance under communism as the starting point for fresh attempts to imagine exceptions, find escape routes and evade the smooth surface of today’s neo-liberal capitalist order.

Nero Magazine: Archiving, gathering, exhibiting, recounting, remembering, loving, desiring, ordering, mapping. A Performance Cycle.

Curated by Cecilia Canziani and Ilaria Gianni – Nomas Foundation
published by NERO

There Is Something You Should Know
a performance by Chiara Fumai
in collaboration with Andrea Lissoni

will be presented in occasion of the launch of the catalogue

Friday 6 May, 6.30 pm
La Pelanda, MACRO Testaccio – spazio Cisterne, Piazza Orazio Giustiniani, 4 – hosted by ROMA. The Road To Contemporary Art
Meeting point: stand Nomas Foundation | Pavillon 3 – stand I 13 | h 6,15 pm
Admission is free on a first come first served basis

The publication stems from the project Archiving, gathering, exhibiting, recounting, remembering, loving, desiring, ordering, mapping. A Performance Cycle, which analysed collecting as a cultural practice through the work of artists that make use of the archive and of the collection in their practice. Four performances by artists Patrizio Di Massimo, Ryan Gander, Pierre Leguillon, Tris Vonna-Michell, were commissioned by Nomas Foundation and hosted by the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma.

The book is organised as an abécédaire ordered around the nine words enclosed in the title. The four artists developed a contribution reflecting on a chosen word, thus addressing in a different media the issues that were central in their work for the performance cycle. In addition to this, the book also includes three essays selected among those which have been crucial in structuring the understanding of the archive/the collection vis a vis Nomas Founation’s programme.

A project by Nomas Foundation

“i am not a good enough feminist”

Exhibition on View at 58 Lispenard Street

May 7, 2011–May 28, 2011

Opening Reception with the Artists: Saturday, May 7, 7–10 pm

Curatorial Talk: Wednesday, May 11, 6:30 pm

Concrete Utopia, with the support of the Art in Empty Spaces initiative sponsored by Community Board 3 and No Longer Empty, is pleased to announce i am not a good enough feminist, a group exhibition and accompanying publication.  In an era of presumed gender equality and celebrated civil rights achievements, have we become complacent and disinterested in the discourse of feminism today? This project seeks to investigate feminism as a historically situated moment and the possibilities and necessities of its contemporary manifestations. As a show, i am not a good enough feminist is the interdisciplinary convergence of artists, writers, activists and intellectuals contemplating their experiences with, preconceptions of, and convictions surrounding feminism. Join us.
