A Gathering of the Tribes Gallery

285 E 3rd St. #2 New York, NY 10009 (F to 2nd Ave, 5 blocks east, between Ave C & D)

No artist avoids status anxiety from the judgments of polymarkets, and it often seems the only ideology defining art remains anti-Capitalist antagonism, despite pop art’s ubiquitous ironic recombination of fine and commercial art. Myths that art is just who you know are both true and devalue the complex interplay of measures of value.
A Gathering of the Tribes, Unpop’s natal location, as of September 2010, is a nearly broke
non-profit, non-commercial, arts organization run out of an old blind guy’s apartment. Its mission of diversity is as easily aimed towards unexpected conjunctions of art from the many splintered tribes of art practice, or that fronts at freedom from market constraints. Contemporary pop art rules the market because it is self-consciously and self-righteously a commodity. In Unpop, we show that spaces peripheral to the art market are all the more market-obsessed.Unpop involves artists who either use pop tropes or engage commodification in entirely
different ways. The aesthetic of high-saturation solid colors, forms simplified to communicate and ideas spun positive, sarcastically or not, pervade, from the attention-seeking demands of advertising.

Jenny Bhatt has sent paintings from India that fuse cartoon Western popism with the well-established philosophical conversation of Hindu Buddhist mythology, featuring a cast of conceptual deities in consumerist narratives. She makes interactive work and comic strips at her site
Washington Chavez went to every gallery in New York City asking them to look at his paintings, and filmed all of it. The result is a queasy litany of rejection, the dying profession of door-to-door salesman multiplied by the eternal buyer’s market of art, emotional sadomasochism intensified by raw documentary recording.
Rita Alves’s anamorphic installation paintings are more engaged with the national politics of U.S. human rights violations than directly with consumer politics. The use of funhouse optics to undistort image evidence of atrocities questions the tension artists feel between the obligations to be both sensitizing activists and entertainers. It makes the whole commodity issue look selfish.
Lauren Hoffen paints commercial parodies that literalize ironic double-speak through blacklight-sensitive paint.
James Mercer assembles ephemeral cardboard and paint installations (as well as digital and ink drawings) resembling video game levels. They are idiosyncratic, generative rewarders of attention from Millenial observers trained by extremely creative-labor-intensive products.

A Lost and Found Art Show

August 2010 / with the annual Charlie Parker Festival

Reception with performances by Emily Hultman and her band, and Zachary King

Saturday August 14 7pm-10pm

A Gathering of the Tribes Gallery

285 E 3rd St. Second Floor New York 10009

LES/East Village, between Aves C and D near the F, L and 6 lines

thumbabyandfriends This August, we celebrate how a gallery has become an orphanage for
lost art. The makers rejected their object offspring, forgot them, or mostly simply hoped this gallery could give them better, or gave in kind. Hailing from diverse backgrounds, epochs and climates, the objects attract questions about context and absurdity, and evidence many years of Tribes history. The abandoned pieces themselves draw away from the common notion of artists’ ownership and intent and rather forces an understanding of how the collective unconscious, intentional or not, can bring new appreciation for such works once placed in a home together. Each piece has its own life story to tell, and every viewer plays a large role in discovering it.

More than a few pieces remain from previous Charlie Parker Festivals, and the lively interplay of downtown styles celebrates the Bird and his generous lifestyle.  The outcome of living for the sake of one’s art, whatever it may be, and pushing the boundaries of what that art can be, becomes most brilliantly weird in the periphery.

Works will be available for silent auction, prices based on whatever information was kept with the piece.  At least one room will be all $0 to start, with $1 bid increments.  Come help them reclaim their history and give them a loving home.  Includes work by Chris Twomey, Hilary Maslon, and Emilio Cruz. Sales benefit Tribes.

Sam Bjorgum compromete a la paralaje entre participante y el espectador, que son perspectivas parciales no necesariamente se superponen con el artista y el público. Pinta a partir de imágenes consideradas como problemáticas para su cristalización del objeto y el sujeto, para lo cual el artista es el espectador. Aspiran a una cercanía y accesibilidad frustrados pero no negada por su multiplicidad y la evasión. Las pequeñas pinturas son procesos que oscilan entre lo que culturalmente se llamaría caliente y fría, se acerca el holismo hacia atrás por el desorden social de la división. Bjorgum vive y trabaja en Minneapolis.

Samuel Bjorgum ‘Aporias’ Russian

“Стихия Сэмюэля Бджоргум- это импульсивность образа, достигнутая особым цветовым строем, ярким и звонким, и одновременно бесстрастным и холодным. Сэмюэль достигает свои идеи сталкивая противоположность чувств, мыслей и желаний, вызывая колебание и дрожь, выплёскивая накал, вызывая резонанс цветa и его звучание.

01.jpg

Искусство Сэмюэль Бджоргума переносит зрителя в особую среду, в которой события протекают вне времени и вне пространства, где сам художник играет параллакс между событиями, которые являются частичными перспективами не обязательно накладывающимия с переживанием художника и аудитории. Его картины подкупают своей возможностью понять и объять образ, не исключая его многогранность и иллюзорность. Эти маленькие картины-процессы, колеблющееся между состоянием “горячо и холодно”, пропуская холизм через беспорядок разделения, выявляя его очевидность.
Сэмюэль Бджоргум живёт и работает в Миннеаполисе. ”

Samuel Bjorgum plays the parallax between participant and spectator, which are partial perspectives not necessarily overlapping with artist and audience. The paintings methodically overlap desire-engaging images regarded as problematic for their crystallization of object and subject. They aspire to an approachability and accessibility frustrated but not negated by their multiplicity and evasion. These small paintings are processes that oscillate between what would culturally be called hot and cold, approaching holism backwards through the social mess of division, immanently inconcludably.

FREE COLLAGE WORKSHOP

Poets-run collage workshop

Tribes Gallery, 285 East Third Street, Manhattan

 June 6, 2010 from 2-4 in the afternoon.

Coinciding with a show of poets’ collages curated by Bruce Weber, Tribes Gallery is sponsoring a one-of-a-kind special free workshop. Join poets and master collagists Jeffrey Cyphers Wright and Valery Oisteanu for an afternoon of creativity and learning.

Wright and Oisteanu are part of a long-tradition of poets who do collages. Wright studied with Alice Notley at St. Mark’s Church. His collages have been included in magazines and art exhibitions. Oisteanu was active member of Ray Johnson’s mail- art Correspondence school and teaches private collage and assemblage.

Materials such as rubber stamps, markers, glue and images will be provided but participants are encouraged to bring extra images. At the end of the workshop you will be able to take some of your creations home.

Wright and Oisteanu have curated several collage shows together and both write regularly for The Brooklyn Rail.

Other poet/ collagists in the show include Star Black, Lewis Warsh, Steve Dalachinsky, Yuko Otomo and Bruce Weber.
