Her Environment / The Nightingale
April 27, 2017, 7:30 pm
1084 N Milwaukee 
Chicago, IL 60642

Mantle (part I), is a video screening of artists reflecting on how the current changes effect us- impending limitations on our personhood based on race, class immigration status, how this manifests in our daily lives, and how our lives inevitably become our art.

Her environment is an expanded New Media art series highlighting feminine spectrum artists focusing on broadening the understanding of how New Media practices can be used in multiple forms of art making. Artists have shown work in performance, writing, light, textile, and sound as well as more traditional embodiments of the term “new media” including computer games, video installation and rendered worlds. Our aim is to show pieces that challenge how new media can be used, and the male dominated culture that surrounds it.

Lucciche (shimmering): A Video Art Symposium
June 22-25, 2016
Officina d'Arte Ponte di Ferro
Via Carriona di Colonnata, 2
53033 Carrara, Italy

Ponte di Ferro is an independent association composed of artists, working mostly in marble, that began more than 10 years ago. It’s focus is to create a collaborative environment, with sculpting studios for local and international artists to work on personal projects. As in past years, Ponte di Ferro is organizing a symposium on art, though for the first time concentrating on video exclusively.

Lucciche (shimmering), which the symposium event draws inspiration from, are random markings in stone, seen as surface impurities of Crystal and Quartz that shimmer when in contact with light. The theme therefore is of imperfection, an accidental quality that points towards the irreproducible.

The outdoor symposium is divided into two main film programs each evening: Video Mapping Projections curated by Giacomo della Pina e Luca Afro (studio cyberfreak) and Single-Channel Video Screenings curated by Chicago based artist Marco G. Ferrari.

The outdoor symposium event is free and open to the public. The event is organized and sponsored by Ponte di Ferro and other collaborators. Every night, before and after the video screenings and mapping projections, performances and concerts will take place.

Allie Shyer's also wrote about Local Ads from Faraway Places for the show, which you can read on Video! Video! Zine's website here:

"Local Ads from Faraway Places is about vision and perception as much as it is about familiarity."

"If notice can be thought of as a place, then that is where Local Ads from Faraway Places transpires; within the territory of heightened awareness."

"On the television, movie credits scroll for a film starring Meg Ryan and a cozy bearded man snoozes in the corner. It is clear that the room is familiar to the artist—as familiar as light through blinds in the afternoon or a Meg Ryan movie. It is this familiarity that allows us to be transported through the act of noticing and dissect the mundane through modes of visual storytelling." -AS

Opening Reception: Friday, March 25, 7 -10 pm
Open hours: Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 12-6 pm and Thursday 11-7pm
2701 Cherokee St.
St. Louis, MO 63118

"Opening on Friday, March 25th, Document V serves as an official record of Temporary Art Review as a public form, summarizing the first five years of collective research by a disparate group of artists, curators, observers, activists and critics.

Document V suggests itself as an exhibition, but also perhaps a collectively-formed curricula, public reading group, or durational performance. Regardless of its official form, it is a historical manifestation of an immaterial process we call a publication.

Document V expands past the gallery to include commissioned public performances, web-based interventions, site-specific readings and immaterial actions. Participating artists and projects include: ACRE TV; Colin Alexander; Anxious to Make (Liat Berdugo and Emily Martinez); Mike Calway-Fagen; Steven Cottingham; Paul Druecke; Nihaal Faizal; Good Weather (Haynes Riley presenting Matthew Kerkhof); Sam Gould/Red 76; Gelare Khosgozaran; Jonathan Hanahan; Michael Powell; Museum of Capitalism; Ryder Richards; Signal Fire; Ryan Thayer; Transversal Projects; Christine Wong-Yap; Caroline Woolard and Lika Volkova and others. Additionally, a commemorative book and exhibition catalog will follow later in the year.

Selected from the site’s contributors and archives, these artists test the boundaries of art and other fields – not only to define, defend and expand that space, but to develop, improve, and bring those methodologies back to the public sphere – to make a public, perhaps, in its accumulation. These works serve both as evidence, or documents, of larger maps of relations, and as models of common activities, habits and procedures that aim to sustain themselves, at least temporarily. 

We presume that attitudes do in fact become form, both symbolic and concrete. We present these documents as an extension of ideas outward among unpredictable publics. We propose to gather in our complexity and articulate a collectivity. We invite you to join us." -The Luminary

Lived and imagined realities merge. Realms we move through neither static nor changing, histories permeating. Interior traversals lead only to symbols. Symbols separated by distance. More symbols. And yet. Somehow, each step taken, moves us closer and closer.

The problem is to make space speak, to feed and furnish it; like mines laid in a wall of rock
which all of a sudden turns into geysers and bouquets of stone.
– Antonin Artaud, The Theater of Cruelty (First Manifesto)

The Set Speaks is a two-month continuous live stream featuring seven artist-groups who will produce week-long performances from a 641 square foot studio in Chicago. Provided with 24/7 access, four cameras, a video switcher, a computer and a connection to the internet, each group will create their own 168-hour live, durational work. Borrowing from the ubiquitous forms of nature cams and security feeds, the live broadcasts will be equal parts moving image works and portraits of the artists at play, rest, rehearsal, and performance. Taking shape and enduring alongside the viewers’ real-times, the interests and subjectivities embedded in the works will amount to seven takes on simultaneity.

I've been thrilled to be a part of a new trans-disciplinary consortium program between UIC, SAIC, and UofC. We've already been on some really excellent field trips, including a behind the scenes tour of the Field Museum's collection, and I can't wait to see how it evolves and the book we come up with at the end.

You can read more about the consortium and the other fellows I'm working with here, the field trip that I co-organized to a data center here, and a UIC News article written about the initiative here: "Collaboration aims to keep artists in Chicago."

Following Nonhuman Kinds: The Plant Symposium
Sector 2337
Saturday, November 14, 2015, 6:30-7 pm
2337 N Milwaukee Ave.
Chicago IL, 60647


Fereshteh Toosi, the Laboratory for Material Thinking, Kera MacKenzie and Andrew Mausert-Mooney will lead two workshops, and screen one film.

Saturday's events include:
2-3:30pm - "Botanical Photograms Workshop" by Fereshteh Toosi

In the mid 1850s, botanist Anna Atkins used a direct printing method called cyanotype to document the plants she was studying. During this hands-on workshop, participants will use the same techniques, developing blueprints using just the sun and water. Together the group will compose images of plant matter and other materials found during a field trip.

4-6pm - "Attention Feeder Workshop" by the Laboratory for Material Thinking
The Attention Feeder is a two hour collective exercise in prolonged attention. For it, the Laboratory for Material Thinking will begin by creating a shared vocabulary for use during a series of guided narratives on the interwoven relationship between living, nonliving, and human perception, as a way to perceive in less anthropocentric ways.

6:30-7pm - "havoc and tumbled" a film by Kera MacKenzie + Andrew Mausert-Mooney
Directors Andrew Mausert-Mooney and Kera MacKenzie and actor Nate Whelden produce live television from one angle and theater from another. Recorded in front of a studio audience during Live to Tape: Artist-Television Festival, May 2015, Chicago, a man attends to the tasks at hand, amidst disruptions. On the other side of the stage/edit: the story of changing American landscapes and the inner character of rare plant life that thrive below telephone lines.


This event is part of a Following Nonhuman Kinds: The Plant Symposium, a series of talks, workshops, and performances that explore vegetal life in conjunction with Sector 2337's current exhibition, Imperceptibly and Slowly Opening. A full list of events is available here.

In a Perfect Fever, 2014 (still)
Half Suffocated
October 8, 2014, 7-9pm
Gallery 400
400 S Peoria St.
Chicago IL


Inspired by Los Angeles art collective My Barbarian’s explorations of feminist legacies, maternal symbolism, and their own roles as cultural producers, the films and videos in Half Suffocated star shaken sons, dazed daughters, multifarious moms, and a Brechtian lightbulb that shines a light on it all. Interruptions abound via stuttering motion, graceful repetitions, and shocks to the surface. Separated by decades, intents, and methods—but clashing playfully—these works knowingly allude to the serious artistic, political, social and historical situations that My Barbarian reenacts.

Gallery 400 is pleased to announce a new partnership with Chicago Filmmakers, in which exhibition themes are expanded upon by film programs and unique viewing experiences.

Featuring:
  • Martin Arnold, Alone: Life Wastes Andy Hardy, 1998, 16mm, 15 min.
  • Marjorie Keller, Daughters of Chaos, 1980, 16mm on dvd, 20 min.
  • Malcolm Le Grice, Castle 1, 1966, 16mm with light bulb, 20 min.
  • Kera MacKenzie and Andrew Mausert-Mooney, In a Perfect Fever, 2014, video.

Museum of Contemporary Art
220 E Chicago Ave.
Chicago, IL 60611

The NIGHTINGALE is a rough-and-ready microcinema located in Chicago’s Noble Square neighborhood. Dedicated to screening emerging work across film, video, and new media genres, it hosts more than 50 events a year and serves as a hub for Chicago’s vibrant cinema community. From mid-March to mid-April, dozens of Chicago-based artists and fourteen local programmers organize under quick timelines and loose thematic guides to inhabit a monitor on fourth floor of the MCA.

Ready and not. Read-y, ready, readiness, already and made, the works in this hour long program explore, report, introduce, rework, sing and travel through notions of preparation and repair, lives and deaths, the mysterious and the ill-conceived, bowling with no pins and reading in the 21st century. See: sustainable sourcing commingled with speculative speakings, languid landscapes, cartoons and paintings. Hear: Tull, Paterra, “JT”. The questions are wry and show and here.

Artists in READY program include: Tony Balko, Lori Felker, Eric Fleischauer, Cameron Gibson, Robert Chase Heishman + Megan Schvaneveldt, Jeremiah Jones, Kera MacKenzie, Steve Reinke, Mary Scherer, Deborah Stratman, Scott Wolniak

WACH 
February 12-16, 2014
College Art Association Conference
720 S Michigan Ave.
Chicago, IL 60605

“Broadcasting” from Room 2170 at the Chicago Hilton during CAA, WACH (pronounced watch) is an exhibition of artist-made videos and films. Stored on a media player and connected to the hotel television, WACH offers viewers/stayers/arters the radically limited television option of ON and OFF. 

Since 2014, WACH has brought its viewers the highest quality moving image works invested in notions of travel, transitory spaces, temporary place-making and the politics and poetics surrounding them! Entrenched in and entranced by the site-specificity of the television, many of our top programs are about the place they live. Works are drawn from the vast history and present of artists whose works are engaged in the idea of broadcast as well as those with an interest in itinerance.

part of Extinct Entities Festival
January 11, 2014, 7pm
Links Hall
3111 N Western Ave.
Chicago, IL 60618

Drawn from a screening (and another screening or two) by the now-defunct Experimental Film Coalition at the even more defunct Randolph Street Gallery, Jesse Malmed will reverse-engineer and recreate a screening using the opaque, often poetic, and fleeting descriptions artists give their work. Descriptions that attend program notes for screenings and the catalogues of distribution organizations will be activated and interpreted by makers and performers, allowing traces of these works to find their way to new eyes and ears again.
 

Performances By: Alejandro T. Acierto and Rob Lundberg
 

Film + Video Works By: Marianna Milhorat, Melissa Myser, Ian Curry, Matt Shaw, Kera MacKenzie + Andrew Mausert-Mooney, Lori Felker, Theo Darst, Eric Fleischauer, Jeremiah Jones, Ben Popp, Hanna M. Owens, Chris Little and Courtney Prokopas.

Lake Mead - Hoover Dam: The Story Behind the Scenery, 2012 (still) 
VIDEO/STILL
December 2013 - May 2014 

An online space dedicated to the video still and curated by Karen Chan-Baggetta.

Separate from the video itself, the still can be appreciated for its own strange, ambiguous, textural, graphic, haunting and/or ephemeral qualities. It can tell part of a story and leave much to the viewer's imagination. What is the artist's thought process in selecting a still? What's the significance of the details in this one frame (or moment)? We can ask these questions or just admire the video still simply for its mystery.

Video stills from 21 artists will be shown; the participating emerging and established artists from around the world were invited or selected through an open call to be a part of this project.


Artists: Zack Bent, Andrew Binkley, Yoon Cho, Steve Cossman, Bryant Davis, Max Gleason, Faith Holland, Jane V Hsu, Kera MacKenzie, A. Bill Miller, Jeroen Nelemans, Heidi C. Neubauer, Paul O'Donoghue, Renzo Ortega, Charmaine Ortiz, Laura Simpson, Hyla Skopitz, Simone Stoll, Ellen Wetmore, James Woodward, Frank Zadlo

November 20, 2013, 6pm
Museum of Contemporary Photography
600 S Michigan Ave.
Chicago, IL 60605

Astronauts report experiencing a cognitive shift in awareness upon returning to Earth due to the dramatic change in perspective caused by observing the Earth from space. For the few who have seen this planet from afar, the sense that human life is vulnerable or trivial can be overwhelming. Video Playlist: Gravitational Pull features video works that examine similar mental shifts and alterations to the perception of everyday experience that are brought about by observing, repositioning, and imagining the world from a changed viewpoint.

Video Playlist is a recurring series of one-night public video screenings programmed in response to MoCP exhibitions. Featuring work by: Basma Alsharif, Cameron Gibson, David Oresick, Kera Mackenzie, and Ana Vaz.

WONDER MACHINE launches on Friday, October 18th in Belen, New Mexico

I'm very honored to be participating in High Desert Test Sites 2013 with my collaborator Courtney Prokopas. Wonder Machine: Belen Mirage is a giant human-powered zoetrope that we are installing on land in an abandoned sub-development in Belen, New Mexico, which Courtney bought for $1 on ebay.

On the evening of Wonder Machine's opening, we will also be hosting a series of performances by Joseph Herring called High Desert Mink Hole, which involves Neo-Fluxus-Suitcases, and an animal to plant telepathic-telecommunication machine. We are very excited about communing with all the with desert critters!


HDTS also has a fundraiser for the event, which ends on September 15th. They were able to reach their funding goal, so any additional funds are going straight to the artists. If you are interested in donating they do great work, and we would definitely appreciate it!!

Burden of Proof

Chicago, IL 60608

In a court of law, opposing parties each carry a burden of proof and must argue their case using, among other things, evidence that can sway jury members to one conclusion or another. Material evidence often plays a critical role in constructing a jury’s sense of the truth and ultimately convicting the accused. Both of the artists included in the exhibition Burden of Proof question the correlation between the reality of an event and the artifacts that are used to reconstruct details about what transpired after the fact.

Body Double: an actor who substitutes for a leading performer, especially in distance shots or scenes not involving the face, such as close-ups of a portion of the body. These four artists are all engaged in conversation about notions of the stand-in as a means of pointing to a person, thing or idea that can't be seen directly. Here, the body double is both the prop and the viewer.

Brooklyn, NY


I FALL, I FLOW, I MELT is a video art show featuring work that explores the idea of escape by means of psychological transportation or transformation. Some ideas that might be considered: to be immersed in a moment of hypnosis, magnificent visions, and dreams; flux and impermanence; to diminish, deteriorate, or disappear. Selected works by nine artists all capture the ephemerality of escape through visual representations, appropriations, anomalies, or abstractions using single or multi-channel, time-based media.

Artists: Karen Y Chan, Yoon Cho, Elaine Despins, Bat-Sheva Guez, Jeremiah Jones, Martyna Starosta, Subluxation (Kera MacKenzie & Eric Miller), Jayoung Yoon, Frank Zadlo
