Martin Howse performance @ Antena, April 12th





Martin Howse
Saturday April 12, 2014 @ 7pm
FREE ADMISSION

The interdisciplinary work of Martin Howse is pre-occupied with a broad questioning of the exact location of execution and of code within the world (psychogeophysics). Through the construction of experimental situations (within process-driven performance, laboratories, walks, and workshops), material art works and texts, Martin Howse explores the rich links between substance or materials and execution or protocol, excavating issues of visibility and of hiding within the world. Since 1998, Martin Howse has published, workshopped, performed and exhibited worldwide.

Multiples.
is a temporary crossover market opening for one weekend in March and October 2014 showcasing objects produced as multiples. As a premise show, Multiples. seeks to span the division between art and craft, which are intimately connected, yet often artificially separated by preconceived notions of social value. Modeled as a hybrid of the contemporary commercial art fair, critical craft markets and an exploration of visual art forms, Multiples. is an affordable option for contemporary artists and makers looking to expose their practice and sell their editions, replicated hand-made, or manufactured works in Chicago. Please click the apply link above to showcase your work at our Spring or Fall markets, or the about link to learn more about art multiples.

How Many Feminists…?” Screening

“How Many Feminists Does it Take to Change a Light Bulb?” …
….“That’s not funny.”

Friday September 6th, 2013 from 6pm-10pm
show runs until September 28th

“How Many Feminists…” is a collection of comedic work by female video artists and performers who identity themselves as feminists and utilize humor as an important part of their work. This show is put together with the intent of getting the academic art world and activist communities to “catch up” with mainstream entertainment in terms of experimentation and trendsetting a female comedic expression. In addition to showcasing female comedic work, this show intertwines “art” and “entertainment” into one genre by including stand up performers and comedic troupes.

Artist Bios:
Channel TWo (CH2)
Adam Trowbridge (b 1972) and Jessica Westbrook (b 1974) collaborate as Channel TWo (CH2), a studio/research construct focused on mixed reality, media, design, development, and distribution, authorized formats + unauthorized ideas, systems of control + radical togetherness. Channel TWo is loosely aligned with the concept of over-identification, Slavoj Žižek’s description of a tactic intended to reveal the hidden nature of dominant ideologies -- not by pointing to them but by becoming extreme forms of them. CH2 projects intersect joyful/play-oriented aesthetic experiences and user interfaces with challenging critical undercurrents. CH2's most recent projects involve interactive landscapes/game environments, and computer viruses. In 2012 CH2 was awarded a Rhizome Commission, a Turbulence Commission in 2011, and a Terminal Commission in 2009 for projects involving education, systems design, and net art. In addition to exhibitions and commissions, CH2 contributes to panels, platforms, publications, and collaborative programs involving new media, and social practices. Both Trowbridge and Westbrook are Assistant Professors at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where they teach courses in the Department of Contemporary Practices and the Department of Art and Technology Studies. Trowbridge received an MFA in Electronic Visualization from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL (2008). Westbrook received an MFA in Photography from Temple University's Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA (1998). http://www.onchanneltwo.com/
