Sumiao Li Presents “Supergirl” and “City Jade Man”

Sumiao's presentation investigates the emergence of new fashion-driven gender models in contemporary China: the "supergirl" and the "city jade" man. Sharing the gender-neutral aesthetics fashionable in recent decades, these two models present much about contemporary Chinese culture and society. Exploring why and how these figures have arisen out of the post-Mao de-politicization of gender issues, Li argues for the centrality of global fashion in shaping personal and group identities and discusses challenges the new formations pose for transnational feminist practice.

Join free103point9, PAJ Publications, Issue Project Room, and Electronic Music Foundation in celebrating the publication of Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves by Galen Joseph-Hunter with Penny Duff, and Maria Papadomanolaki (PAJ Publications. In association with free103point9.) This event will feature performances from Todd Merrell, Kabir Carter, Terry Nauheim, Lázaro Valiente, Joel Chadabe, and others.

http://www.issueprojectroom.org/2011/08/17/transmission-arts-artists-and-airwaves/

 ABOUT THE BOOK

In this ground-breaking look at a new art genre, Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves brings together a genealogy of 150 artists and artworks—and more than 250 images—from 1921 to the present that encompasses performance, video, radio theatre, sound art, media installation, networked art, and acoustic ecology. Here is a fascinating account of the ingenuity and creativity of artists who have made new discoveries in broadcast, public works, performance composition, sound, and text, stretching the boundaries of both transmitter and receiver. At a time when public access struggles with corporate control of the airwaves, artists have combined activism and communications technologies to represent alternative worlds on the electromagnetic spectrum. Click here to order Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Todd Merrell’s work illustrates a fascination with the imperceptible environment of electromagnetic radiation that shortwave radio and processing can capture, and transform into an immersive, musical environment.

Kabir Carter’s work moves between performance and installation, and focuses on the physical and emotional effects of architecture and acoustics in private and public spaces. http://www.kabircarter.com/

Terry Nauheim explores sound and visual relationships through digital media, drawing, and installation. http://www.terrynauheim.com/

Lázaro Valiente is sound artist Mauricio Pastrana, his work is comprised of sounds and silence originating in the daily improvisations of life.

Michael Schiavi appears in L.A. filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz’s documentary “Vito”

 

Dear NYIT friends, 

L.A. filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz has finished Vito, his new documentary on Vito Russo.  It will have its world premiere on Friday, October 14 at the New York Film Festival at Lincoln Center.

I’ve seen a rough cut of the film, and I can tell you that it’s superb, a perfect tribute to Vito and his legacy to the LGBT community.  Featuring original interviews of Lily Tomlin, Larry Kramer, Michelangelo Signorile, Armistead Maupin, Bruce Vilanch, Arnie Kantrowitz, and the late Arthur Evans, among dozens of others, Vito is a comprehensive portrait not only of the man himself, but of twenty years of gay and AIDS activism.  I couldn’t be prouder to be appearing in such a distinguished film.

I hope to see you at Lincoln Center!  For more info on the film and on ordering tickets—which are going fast!--please click here:  http://us2.campaign-archive1.com/?u=c9432948c83a6659f91341b4c&id=367e24fcca&e=f5789a1988

All the best,

Michael
