VOICE in MOVEMENT
Nicola Frangione - sound and video poetry performance
Nicola Frangione’s sound poetry and concerts are oriented towards what some artists define as "art dramaturgy". Gestures as a key form of expression are a distinguishing feature of his work. On the one hand, his vocality takes an active part in the performances of the body, playing the same role as the other linguistic elements; on the other, it stands out thoroughly, in a sound-focused dimension connected with both texts and music according to interdisciplinary approaches, harmonizing with the main orientation of "sound poetry", which is the name for half a century’s practice and pragmatic observation. (Giovanni Fontana)
Nicola Frangione was born in Forenza (Potenza), Italy, in 1953. He has been living and working in Monza since 1972, as an interdisciplinary artist experimenting with several techniques: visual arts, audio art and sound poetry, video-art and visual poetry.

The call for papers and projects is open until January 30, and the international advanced project production workshop-seminary will take place in Madrid from 3 to 14 March 2008.
The purpose of this open participation meeting is to explore the relationship between digital networks and physical space: how new locative technologies are chang! ing the way citizens perceive the physical and geographic space (cellphones, Google Earth, GPS...) and how these media are reorganizing civic communication and interaction (from "geobrowsers" to the Local Web 2.0 or the "hiperlocal" journalism).
Through and open call, projects to be collaboratively developed during a production workshop and papers to be publicly presented will be selected. Submission Deadline: 30th January 2008
Notification of Acceptance: 8th February 2008

Laughing in a Foreign Language explores the role of laughter and humour in contemporary art. In a time of increasing globalization, this international exhibition questions if humour can only be appreciated by people with similar cultural, political or historical backgrounds and memories, or whether laughter can act as a catalyst for understanding what you are not familiar with.Laughing in a Foreign Language investigates the whole spectrum of humour, from jokes, gags and slapstick to irony, wit and satire. The exhibition brings together more than 70 videos, photographs and interactive installation works by more than 30 artists from all around the world.
Artists: Makoto Aida, Kutlug Ataman, Azorro, Guy Ben-Ner, John Bock, Candice Breitz, Olaf Breuning, Cao Fei, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Marcus Coates, Harry Dodge and Stanya Khan, Doug Fishbone, Ghazel, Gimhongsok, Matthew Griffin, Nina Jan Beier and Marie Jan Lund, Taiyo Kimura, Peter Land, Janne Lehtinen, Kalup Linzy, Yoshua Okon, Ugo Rondinone, Julian Rosefeldt, Shimabuku, David Shrigley, Nedko Solakov, Barthélémy Toguo, Roi Vaara, Martin Walde, Jun Yang.

* Do art and TV belong in the same sentence?
* Do people lie about watching TV?
* Are commercials better than programs?
* Can apexart get creative people to make a TV commercial about them?
Yes, yes, yes and yes!
apexart recently held an open call, requesting submissions of a 30-second TV commercial about us from individuals and collaborative groups. The commercials are available for viewing on a public-access site, where viewers are encouraged to visit and cast votes for their favorite. In addition, all commercials will be on view as part of an innovative living-room-style installation at apexart New York from January 9 to February 16, 2008.
The winning entry will have their commercial aired on network TV.
The exhibition was conceived to examine creative practices in contemporary culture and to reconsider the current promotional model of the art world.
Commercials will be available for viewing and voting from this website starting January 9.
This exhibition has been made possible, in part, by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council with the generous support of The September 11th Fund.

Curator : Carine Le Malet
For the past years the Magda Danysz gallery has been actively promoting video art through monthly video sessions. Now a complete show is dedicated exclusively to this art. Curated by Carine Le Malet (from Le Cube) Under my skin explores the relationship ones has to the body, let it be on the inside or the outside. Beauty, seduction, personnel fears, illness, are all intertwined in a beautiful ballet of images...

For the inaugural exhibition at galerie kamel mennour’s new premises in Paris, Daniel Buren
demonstrates yet again his incredible talent for inventing new pathways for his art – a
talent he has been displaying for over forty years now.
Although used to creating projects for new places, this is the first time he has found himself building something for a space which is itself still under construction. Hence his conception has had to come from examining the plans and, above all, from his foresight, informed by experience: “the space of a particular place indicates certain paths for me to follow, certain visions. Here, I had the feeling that what could exist afterwards in a different place would always remain partly attached to this place. It is, It will be.

"Intersections of Contemporary Art and Society"
2008 program starts in April
Connecting you to the Contemporary Art that makes a difference in the world
This program will examine the movement of peoples, ideas, and art as a result of three primary contemporary forces: tourism, migration, and exile. In each of these situations the person moving is essentially an outsider who engages with the culture of habitation in a way that is distinctly different than that of the members of the dominant culture.
At Arms Length
Artists in this exhibition: Guy Ambrosino, Helen Dennis, David A. Faust, Christina Gundersen, Jessica Mein, Molly Springfield, Cody Trepte
Amidst recent preoccupations with new media, post-studio practice, unmonumentality, performative practice and media super-saturation, it might seem that the place of the artist's hand has been eviscerated, digitized into invisibility.
With laborious and time-consuming manual processes performed over and over, the artists of At Arms Length obsessively attempt to bring experience back within arm's reach.
These seven artists directly and indirectly address the loss precipitated by technological advancement. Labour, meticulousness, and repetitive manual processes replace the "Command-P" mentality of much contemporary art, while a deliberate, thoughtful fusing of media replaces the laise-faire "no media" approach that often renders the artist's touch obsolete.
Guy Ambrosino's, watercolors, based on the snapshots by American soldiers of Abu Ghraib prisoners, omit the photographs' central figures, leaving a setting only identifiable by caption. By methodically hand-tracing and painting these pervasive images, Ambrosino's process is a personal meditation on the possibility of familiarizing a distant event.
Molly Springfield laboriously hand-copies Xeroxed pages of theoretical texts, ink smears and all. Her meticulous drawings belabor the futility of manual reproduction, addressing the relationship between text and image, while grappling with issues of reproduction and originality, technology and labor, digital and analog, pencil and print.
Cody Trepte manually executes binary code-the universal language of computers-to explore the differences between human and technological expression. His video This is how I cope with my neuroses is a literal translation of its title into binary code, which Trepte then communicates through blinking.
The uncanny snapshot aesthetic of David A. Faust's photorealistic oil paintings evoke a subtle disquiet embedded in the American psychic landscape. By alluding to photography through themes of light, reflection and transparency, Faust reveals alienation as endemic to the banal scenes of everyday.
Christina Gundersen's series Fallen, based on both found images and original photographs, is an investigation of control articulated in the moment a horse stumbles and falls. By obsessively painting the suspended moment of mid-fall, Gundersen re-inserts the painterly hand into an otherwise photographic moment, pushing the documentary abilities of painting.
Helen Dennis combines drawing and photographic processes to create architectural images she calls "photographic drawings". By layering several drawings on top of photographic paper and exposing them to light, Dennis unites a variety of hand-rendered perspectives with a photographic process. The resulting hybrid medium temporally references both the instantaneity of photography and the duration of drawing.
Jessica Mein's work explores the tension between the mediated space of film, and the physicality of drawing. In a cyclical process that emphasizes the entwining of these two mediums, the expanded frame of video is both a means for "sketching" her drawings and a surface for their execution.

Tra gli obiettivi della Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana c'è l'organizzazione e gestione delle principali manifestazioni, eventi e sfilate che si terranno per rappresentare il sistema Moda Italiano a Milano, considerata come la Capitale della Moda, sia per l'uomo che per la donna, proprio per la convergenza tra il pret-à-porter "alto", di lusso e l'apporto degli stilisti.
Le manifestazioni sono quattro appuntamenti legati alla presentazione della Collezione Milano Moda Uomo e Milano Moda Donna, tutti a disposizione degli associati e degli ospiti dell'evento. La Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana è responsabile della presentazione della moda di sartoria a Roma "AltaRoma" e anche di diversi spettacoli televisivi come "Donna Sotto le Stelle".
Ogni anno la Camera Nazionale della Moda coordina le seguenti attività
- Milano Moda Donna autunno/inverno 2008/2009 ( 16 Febbraio - 23 Febbraio 2008 )
