HOME ROOM

Performance Program Series on Instagram Live

“Home Room” Curated by Audra Lambert (Editor-in-Chief, ANTE mag)
at Radiator Gallery, 10-61 Jackson Ave Long Island City, NY 11106

Group Exhibition on view Spring 2021 featuring participating artists (exact dates TBD)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE    Radiator Gallery, in partnership with ANTE mag, is proud to announce the cohort of artists selected for a 2020 Fall presentation schedule and 2021 Spring group exhibition for the multidisciplinary art program:  Home Room . The term  Home Room  conjures, in a sense, the academic calendar, while “home” and “room” taken individually both allude to the restricted environment we have experienced in the wake of the CoVid-19 shutdown. In this current moment, artists have faced restrictions on how work can be presented and where they are able to produce work, resulting in both innovative solutions in terms of medium and method of working, along with seeking a new sense of connection with cultural producers in the field via remote channels. The juxtaposition of restriction and innovation occurring in the wake of this global pandemic have exposed new opportunities for artists to transcend the existing limits of their daily practice. Performative acts occur Dec 2020 with a group show date  TBD .

Artists selected to present performative acts and exhibit related artworks Spring 2021 include:
Katina Bitsicas, 
András Böröcz,  Ligia Bouton, KS Brewer, Graciela Cassel, Bryan Clavel, Donna Cleary, Shana Crawford, Rachel Garber Cole, Neil Daigle-Orians, Jacki Davis, Michal Gavish, Judy Giera, Kahori Kamiya, e.Ko & Helixx C. Armageddon, Kesha Lagniappe, Barbara Lubliner, Joe Nanashe, Rebecca Poarch, Liv Schwenk, Caito Stewart, and Sato Yamamoto.

HOME ROOM: Call for Performative Artist Presentations at Radiator Gallery

Open Call from September 8, 2020, to September 29, 2020, 11:59 PM EST

Radiator Gallery in collaboration with ANTE mag

HOME ROOM welcomes new presentations from members of the art community isolated at home in 2020: a time when artists are divided while aspiring to form new connections remotely. The term “Home Room” conjures the feeling of starting a new school year, while “Home” and “Room” taken individually in the context of the ongoing global pandemic allude to the actuality of our lived environment in 2020, as these terms define the spaces in which we are currently confined to both live and create work. In this current moment, artists have faced restrictions on how work can be presented and where they are able to produce work, resulting in both innovative solutions in terms of medium and method of working and increased connection with cultural producers in the field via remote channels. This juxtaposition of restriction and innovation that have occurred in the wake of this global pandemic has exposed new opportunities for artists to transcend the existing limits of their daily practice. 

Radiator Gallery and ANTE mag seek working artists to submit projects for HOME ROOM in two parts: first, a proposal for a performance that can be presented via Instagram Live, lasting roughly 15-25 minutes, to be performed either at home in a room of the artist’s choosing or onsite with exclusive access to Radiator Gallery in Long Island City*. This performance proposal should relate to either a sense of isolation and/or connection. (*Local artists will be invited to record their works live within the Radiator Gallery space in Long Island City, where they will have exclusive access to space sans audience in line with current CoVid-19 guidelines.). This proposal can be a performance art piece, a lecture, choreographed work, or some other creative presentation to occur via Instagram Live, Fall 2020. 

The second part of this open call asks selected artists to present artifact(s), in dialogue with the aforementioned performative presentation, to be curated in relationship to one another for a Spring 2021 exhibition to occur at Radiator Gallery in Long Island City, Queens, NY. ANTE mag will be announcing and promoting this exhibition, highlighting winning artists across social media and in the publication in dedicated articles. Final physical works to be presented in the gallery space will be decided along with the winning artists leading up to the exhibition date, currently TBD but slated for early-mid 2021. The Yard Curator/Amos Eno Gallery Director Audra Lambert will be reviewing the submissions, along with Tamas Veszi and Daniela Kostova of Radiator Gallery.

Submission Fee for Curatorial costs: $15 (Payable via Paypal)

Selected artists will be notified by October 1, with performances slated to occur via Instagram Live with Radiator Arts through Fall 2020 in conversation with Radiator Arts and ANTE mag and final exhibition slated for 2021.

To Apply: Please fill out this form – https://forms.gle/6ARmeEwP6Q5JP2WX6

Here you will submit an artist statement, bio, CV, and 500-word proposal for how the concept you plan to present for a performative work related to the term “Home Room.” This proposal can either creatively re-imagining confinement (working from home,) connection (finding ways to stay connected to peers in virtual ways,) or some combination of the two. Submit the PayPal fee and this information via this Google Form by Sept 21st, 2020 before midnight EST.

Application guidelines:

  • Open to non-student artists only
  • Working artists
  • Artists are responsible for bringing all needed materials/props for their performance to the gallery and back
  • We encourage both local and international multidisciplinary artists to apply
  • Solo artists or collaborative teams welcome (max three people for collaboratives)

Interdependency Now – One on One Instagram LIVE Interview with Jenny Marketou and Adele Eisenstein – Part 2

Radiator Gallery invites you to the eighth conversation of our LIVE series.                    

  
 Wednesday, June 30th from 4PM to 5PM EDT.

 Add to your calendar 

 Join us via  RadiatorArts Instagram,  and Adele Eisenstein

 Dear Friends,

 Interdependency Now – One on One is an Instagram Live Series highlighting artists from our current show
 
 and generating ongoing meaningful and relevant dialogue with our guests. 
 
 This Tuesday, June 30th, we will be hosting the second part of the conversation between the artist and

 educator Jenny Marketou and independent curator Adele Eisenstein.

 
 After four months of lockdown, Jenny Marketou will be speaking from the gallery space, revisiting her work
 
 Ever Growing through my City, 
that takes on new meaning in this time of social and cultural unrest. 
 
 They will continue the conversation begun previously, focusing on protocols and infrastructures of interdependence, 
 
 care and knowledge production, and how the ideas and principles behind them extend beyond the physical to the
  
 virtual space in Marketou’s art practice. We hope you can join us to put your questions into action.

 
 This event occurs in anticipation of the reopening of Radiator Gallery on July 15, and the Interdependency
 
 Now
 exhibition. Starting that day, the gallery will work by appointment only, for a limited number of visitors.

 

About the exhibition  Interdependency now:

 Artists: Eirini Linardaki, Jenny Marketou,
 Vincent Parisot, Peter Soriano

 Fanzines and editions: Julien Gardair, Tattfoo Tan
 Interpretive participation by Maria Dimanshtein

 Curated by Eirini Linardaki and Jenny Marketou

Planning the exhibition Interdependency Now, the co-curators and participating artists Eirini Linardaki and Jenny Marketou examined ideas of interdependency, participation, and collaboration in relation to art and social practice. How could they create sustainable relations among the exhibition’s artists and curators, and, most importantly, with an audience drawn from the many diverse communities that co-exist in New York City’s five boroughs? 
 
Interdependency suggests learning from and taking care of one another and acknowledging the ways in which we need support. No one stands alone. In contrast to dependency, interdependency connects us to each other in powerful ways, helping us to overcome differences and embrace new perspectives. As the philosopher and gender theorist Judith Butler argues, social interdependency is a great leveler; it naturally leads to greater equality and emancipation.
 
Interdependency Now aims to use contemporary art to make evident the ways in which we are all interdependent. The exhibition, which runs from February 21 at Radiator Gallery in Long Island City, features the works of four artists working collaboratively: Eirini LinardakiVincent ParisotJenny Marketou, and Peter Soriano.

  Dear Friends,
Interdependency Now – One on One is an Instagram Live Series highlighting artists from our current show. 
This Wednesday, May 27, we will be hosting a conversation between the artist and curator Eirini Linardaki and artist Tattfoo Tan.
 
About Tattfoo Tan:
Throughout my art practice, I employed the process of Learn, Practice, Teach. The result of the process is a syllabus book. This is the fourth book that I wrote. This book should be used as an exercise book, write your name on the front page and keep answering the prompt in the book, they appear in rounded corner boxes. Keep researching words or topics that you are intrigued with. The book itself flows from duality to nonduality.

It was based on my own experiences learning this knowledge and practice. The book is best used during my New Earth Ceremony because I’ll be able to walk you over each page and you can go home and do the exercise. Since my art practice are socially based and the exhibition is static, this book becomes the bridge. The reader will be able to activate all the practices without the artist present. Hopefully, it will be a catalyst in further your exploration into the mystery of life. In short, it is a spiritual hero’s journey of self-realization, as the ancient sage would call it: enlightenment.

Eirini Linardaki was born in Athens and studied in Limerick L.I.T., Ireland, Berlin, and Marseille. She lived in France for more than twenty years. She is now developing projects within the city and questioning the relationship between public policy and art.
