    It’s difficult to convey the value of artist­run spaces like metro pcs to the unknown beings that might receive this transmittal (let alone the difficulty in doing so to humans). metro pcs is dear to my heart because of the freedom it allowed Daniel Ingroff and I to produce the show we wanted. The sculpture I made for our show Out of the Elbows was a stained glass window that mimicked the pattern of the security gate surrounding the entrance of metro pcs. At the time, I had so many thoughts and feelings about making this sculpture it was hard for me to enjoy that I pulled it off. But as the dust settled, I felt good about our show­­the work in it, the warmth and generosity shown to me by Matt and Ian, and the trust that occurs between artists on such occasions.

    A toast for metro pcs (performance instructions), 2016

    Fill a glass (with alcohol) and raise it

    To a space for artists run by artists that may or may not become a pre-paid wireless service retail store, but will absolutely continue to live on forever and ever traveling in the vacuum of space.

    Look around the room making eye contact with those around you

    Here, here!

    Drink the entire drink and place the empty glass on the ground and stomp on it once with vigor.

    Horses at Midnight Without a Moon Jack Gilbert

    Our heart wanders lost in the dark woods. Our dream wrestles in the castle of doubt. The summer mornings begin inch by inch while we sleep, and walk with us later

    as long­legged beauty through
    the dirty streets. It is no surprise
    that danger and suffering surround us. What astonishes is the singing.
    We know the horses are there in the dark meadow because we can smell them, can hear them breathing.
    Our spirit persists like a man struggling through the frozen valley
    who suddenly smells flowers
    and realizes the snow is melting
    out of sight on top of the mountain, knows that spring has begun.

    on the advise of a fellow traveler
    now in search of the hand of zeus reaching down from the heavens we split from our worn valley trail
    passing a small lake where we bathe
    cleansing ourselves for the approaching visit
    we follow a trickling stream sourced from the waters of the oracle up through precarious scree and dense brush
    arriving
    like to an arena for the battles of fate
    yet there is no oak tree here
    i strip bare and walk below the towering stands
    but we descend from the stadium
    years have since passed

    THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPED OVER THE LAZY DOG AND WENT TO SLEEP FOREVER. When we crash our cars they don’t die. They go to sleep and wake up as another thing. The problem with immortality is not extending life it is extending continuity. Properly cultivated cells are immortal, but with no end at hand our cells grow weird and form endless tumors. We, as Humans, are only as different from Chimpanzees as Dogs are from Foxes. We were all something and then, as things do, went to sleep and woke up as something else. Similarity is by nature the same. Difference is less predictable. We humans are not as different from Dogs as Chimpanzees are from Foxes. A little bit of difference goes a long way. What wakes up is unpredictable; to know what went to sleep is impossible. A basket implies a basket maker. What does the basket maker imply? Ask her and she will sing songs and take you to the places where she gathers grass like her mother and grandmother but she will never mention baskets. Any mother would do the same. The presence of pattern is a pattern. We know these things exist without having to state or comprehend them. The Quick Brown Fox jumped Over the Lazy Dog and went to sleep forever only to wake up as something else. The Quick Brown Fox was in the world for a long time as a Quick Brown Fox but that whole time it was moving away from being a Quick Brown Fox and never knew it. It was a Young Brown Fox and then an Old Brown Fox and then it was a Sick Brown Fox. The Lazy Dog is so lazy it’s hard to tell if it is alive or dead. It doesn’t move toward anything, it does nothing and it counts on all the other things to prop it up! Of course, for all these things change is the only constant. Like everything they wake up for an instant to be named and then fall back asleep to dream until the next time they wake up.

    With this multitude of willows, however, it was something far different, I felt. Some essence emanated from them that besieged the heart. A sense of awe awakened, true, but of awe touched somewhere by a vague terror. Their serried ranks, growing every- where darker about me as the shadows deepened, moving furiously yet softly in the wind, woke in me the curious and unwelcome suggestion that we had trespassed here upon the borders of an alien world, a world where we were intruders, a world where we were not wanted or invited to remain.

    Constant hims or thems. Their value to you is in flux as you need something from each of them, merely a feeling of relief. Rarely did the relief come for more than a few moments, just a few seconds, when you are about to cum. You thank him. You get your shirt on. You step out the front door and feel a sense of freedom as you sit in your car. You realize you’re still on lunch break and you should have been back an hour ago. You look in the mirror, readjust your hair and drive back to work.

    So,

    Supposedly, at some point in the initial stages of working on the door entrance ornamentation which he later titles The Gates of Hell, Rodin has agreed to do an interview with a British reporter, which is to take place atRodin’s studio. When the reporter arrives,Rodinis in the process of working on the figure placed in the center of the above door

    panel, a male figure sitting on a rock with his chin resting on one hand.

    As the reporter does not speak French, the interview is conducted in English, and some time into the interview, the interviewer asks Rodin a general question concerning Rodin’s view on the role of sculpture within these modern times of art.

    Rodin, who is still working on the sitting male figure, supposedly immediately answers that “sculpture is the image of the finger” The reporter however apparently misinterprets Rodin’s broken English, ultimately leading to that the British newspaper the following day brings a big feature on Rodin with the headline: French sculptor Auguste Rodin is working on a new masterpiece: The Thinker. Subsequently however, and probably due to the much attention the article attracts, Rodin not only decides to embrace this retitling, but also separates the sculpture from its initial composition

    of surrounding figures, hence treating it as an independent work, which he enlarges into a monumental size cast, slightly larger than human size.

    What’s interesting is that this minor misinterpretation and the following fairly trivial marketing decisions around formatting, has had major consequences in our understanding of Rodin as one of the great modernist sculptors: First of all, due to fact that this icon, what could be called the incarnation of thinking, was originally never intended to depict such an ambitious and abstract phenomenon. This signification landed, so to speak, quite accidentally onto this crouching lump of mussels.

    Secondly, the raw and unfinished rendering of the sculpture, which is often canonized as one of the founding points within modernist expressionism, is simply due to the fact thatRodin’sfingerswhen working on the original, just wasn’t able to sculpt in such great detail when working within a relatively small scale.

    Documentation of Mushrooms & Honey @ Either Way LA here

    I’ve invited you for many reasons. I value my encounters with your work and I value the opportunity I’ve had to think about it for a long time, that is, to remember it. You are all artists whose work I admire and loosely associate with “outside” or “outdoors” and, most importantly for me, you resonate as a group in other, less definable ways. Maybe you project a certain calm. Or, maybe I like to imagine your work in unfiltered daylight. Planted in time and conversation I trust that our ideas will expand and coalesce.

    Honey, sweet bio-gold, isn’t made in plastic bears and mushrooms aren’t convenient stools for tiny creatures. The thing is, both honey and mushrooms keep their truths secret from all but the most dedicated connoisseur. Mushrooms are

    basically the official plant of the avant-garde* and honey is the moon juice of spiritual correctness.Held secret in hives and beneath the ground these two substances embody weird math lurking outside the easy purview of us human animals.

    The connections I draw here are not reflective of the facts or respectful of nature’s patterns. Rather, they are based on an imagination of the world via distant, hidden metaphors. Let your mind wander, ask yourself if, and how, you can you compress the alien rhythms, expressions and textures of creepy nature into a form that is at all compatible with human understanding.

    To give meaning to the shortness of the afternoon (mushrooms), I wanted weeks (honey). I wanted a container, like a hive, to keep all this honey. I wanted something like a mycelial bloom balanced with the frantic orchestration of a hive, each with its own patterns, speed and scale: Mushrooms & Honey.

    For the first event of the day, we will gather in a disused alley from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., for the brief, outdoor section of the show. Then, as day turns into evening, metro pcs will house the second, slow section of Mushrooms & Honey. This exhibition will open from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 14, and be on view until 6 p.m. Saturday, July 2 (with regular hours in between).

    The Future of Humanity

    In a thousand years, what will be the fate and destiny of humanity? Will there still be a human presence on Earth? Or will we have destroyed the small bandwidth that makes human life possible. Or will we have evolved into more conscious beings, living in harmony with ourselves, each other, and the planet.

    Will we have free energy, sustainable food, easy interplanetary travel or even time travel? Or will we have been the cause of our own destruction? What must we do to created the best possible future for all living beings to exist in harmony and grow and evolve?

    The project will be the collapse of the install, exhibition, and deinstall. I will begin by preparing and cleaning the gallery, then hanging the work. I will finish by removing the

    artwork, patching and repairing holes, cleaning and closing up the space. The performance will be performed solo and consist of me working alone. I will be able to converse and communicate if needed but will clearly have a task ahead of me.

    The Huebler image is taken from, ‘Variable Piece #70: 1971 (In Process) Global, Crocodile Tears: The Signature Artist (Napoleon).’  It is of Napoleon Bonaparte’s face shown three times from different angles, cialis generique displayed in a triptych. I initially mistook the image for a chef and this misinterpretation of an artwork speaks to a loss of control and an artist’s lack of authority over an image he/she produces. I examine this array of male characters

    – Napoleon, someone entered into Western history; a chef, traditionally an occupation dominated by males; and Huebler, a conceptual artist well-known within the arts but not to the rest of the world. 

    The audio component will play during the performance and loop. Visitors will be aware that an activity is happening in the present.  The sound will speak to a frenetic energy, mimicking the shared reality that the audio will end and that death, or ceasing to exist, is something we all innately fear.

    Performance Friday Oct 9th, 8pm

    Pescador will perform a set of exchanges between himself and dummies through short skits about daily interactions and conflict. Shifting between exaggerated body movements as well as choreographed dance, he treats these mannequins as partners and props. Accompanying this performance will be a set of projections, including a video he made as an undergraduate student, in which he attempted to have a sexual encounter with a dummy. In this video, he lays in bed trying to kiss this papier-mache body as its wig constantly falls off, while he undresses and attempts to penetrate the dummy with the aid of safety scissors.

    metro pcs is honored to screen Stan Douglas’s Monodramas, with a reception Thursday, July 30th from 7-10 pm. The exhibition will run until Saturday, August 8.

    Douglas’s Monodramas, ten 30- to 60-second videos from 1991, conceived as interventions into commercial television, interrupted the usual flow of advertising and entertainment when broadcast nightly in British Columbia for three weeks in 1992. These micronarratives mimic television’s editing techniques, but as kernels of a story they refuse to cohere. They are tales of dysfunction and dislocation, misanthropy and misunderstanding. When the videos were aired unannounced during commercial breaks, viewers called the station to inquire about what was being sold, their responses evincing how the media can refocus attention from content to consumption. — Nancy Spector
    Stan Douglas was born in 1960 in Vancouver. Since the late 1980s, Douglas has created films, photographs, and installations that examine the legacy of modernism and the nature of achat viagra generique pfizer historical and social narratives. Douglas borrows from existing Hollywood genres and classic literary works for his thoroughly researched projects. He has exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide, including Documenta IX, X, and XI. He is Core Faculty in the Graduate Art Department of Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

    The Bucket
    Asha Schechter

    From a low angle, the Colonel Sanders of East Hollywood looks worried.  Perhaps, in his old age he is abandoning his aspirations for higher military distinction, or, more likely, he wonders whether the product being pressure cooked in the deep fryers below can still be consumed for legal tender.   Since the late 1980’s, when the architects Elyse Grinstein and Jeffrey Daniels were hired to design this flagship franchise at the corner of Western and Oakwood, Kentucky Fried Chicken has grown into the second largest restaurant chain in the world, a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, while its marketing department has embarked upon ever more radical abasements of poultry.  These have included the infamous 2011 rollout of the Double Down- a “sandwich” that substitutes bread with chicken, and chicken with bacon- followed by the 2013 #iatethebones campaign, in which terrified customers grapple with the possibility of asphyxia, only to be assured by the staff that they have just eaten a boneless and identical version of the classic 5-piece recipe. In these progressive and unnatural detachments, KFC’s chicken is revealed as a property so liquid that it could only be contained in bucket form.

    Grinstein and Daniels have acted out these metamorphoses in their architecture, at the behest of Jack Wilke, who enlisted the firm in 1988 to overhaul his then 25-year-old ensure restaurant.  Frank Gehry might not have been available, but the partners’ formative years spent apprenticing in his office made them ideal candidates for a downmarket extension of an architectural franchise that was just beginning to proliferate outside of Los Angeles and an upmarket version of the standard KFC design.  The official elements of the prototypical KFC, including the fake mansard roof and rotating bucket sign, have been either diminished- the sloping roof is relegated to a small cap above the dual Colonel Sanders heads- or incorporated into the building- the rotation of the bucket is most evident in the plan, in which the curved façade along Western seems to be pivoting into the more conventional service areas.  Even the diagonal racing stripes of the KFC logo, updated in 1991 when the company name was shortened to an acronym, have been anticipated as vertical fins, in a nod as well to Los Angeles’ post-war “Googie” architecture.

    Together these redistributed and re-scaled motifs form a cohesive image of a high-speed and overflowing bucket of chicken, beckoning the stoned late-night cruisers of Western Avenue into the looping drive-thru.  A birds-eye view, directed towards an avian audience, reveals the profile of a chicken in its pre-processed state- still standing upright on its skinny pilotis. Meanwhile, the double visages of Colonel Sanders point West and South towards the beaches of Malibu and Hermosa, longing for seafood and sand, and a retirement far away from his Old Kentucky Home.  Vamos a la playa!

    Please join metro pcs for the launch of two new projects by Amy Howden-Chapman:

    The release of an artist-book, All The News I Read About Climate Change in 2014 

    The raising of Flag For a 1960s Environmentalist

    All The News I Read About Climate Change in 2014 re-presents newspaper articles gathered over the course of a year. Collectively the articles chronicle the slowly evolving language around environmental crisis, during a year which saw a heightening of political engagement and public outcry around climate change. The book is published by Distance Plan Press, with a forward by the Newspaper Reading Club.

    Flag for a magnus viagra masticable precio 1960s Environmentalist calls attention to the personal attacks made against writer Rachel Carson after her seminal exposé of the chemical industry, Silent Spring. The insults, slurs, and criticisms heaped upon Carson ranged from lifestyle put-downs “health nut” and “spinster” to more openly political statements such as “communist sympathizer.” These insults mark the genesis of the illogical divide between economic progress and environmental protection, and also highlight the other progressive movements that would arise to confront the sexism and homophobia faced by Carson.

    Flag For a 1960s Environmentalist will fly for the duration of the opening and for the weekend of April 17th and 18th.
