"DER DOZEN DANTZ (THE DANCE OF DEATH)" (1991) (INK ON PAPER, 24 X 18 IN, 36 x 28 IN FRAMED) by MANUEL OCAMPO
Location: Galatea Offsite/San Francisco Apartment

"UNTITLED (Bird, Pink, Cross, Shit)" (2005) (30" X 24", oil on canvas) by Manuel Ocampo
Location: Living Room, Pygmalion-First Floor

TENTH MENTION DUE TO UPDATE]

UPDATE:


Manuel Ocampo has a new exhibit. Here's Lizabeth Oliveria Gallery's Press Release:

"KITSCH RECOVERY PROGROM" - new paintings by Manuel Ocampo

Date: September 15th - October 27th, 2007 
Opening Reception:  September 15th 6-8 pm

Where:  2712 S. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90034
contact:  +1. 310.837.1073 

Lizabeth Oliveria Gallery is delighted to present KITSCH RECOVERY PROGROM, a solo exhibition by Manuel Ocampo.  This marks Ocampo’s second solo exhibition at Lizabeth Oliveria Gallery, Los Angeles.  The show will open September 15th and will run until October 27th, 2007. 

Manuel Ocampo exploded onto the LA art scene in the early 1990’s with Paul Schimmel’s infamous Helter Skelter exhibition at MOCA.  Ocampo is at the forefront of multicultural critique and continues to assess flaws of contemporary systems.  Ocampo utilizes repetitive imagery and text taken from the past and reconfigures them in response to negative political and art world power structures by juxtaposing conflicting images, such as swastikas, religious symbols and klu klux klan hoods.  Through ironically introducing the historical and religious symbols of the Western world, Ocampo satirizes, sometimes cynically and with dark humor, their iconic status and their claims to authority.  His paintings portray a world that combines fantasy, satire, and reality paying homage to historical figures such as Goya and Guston. Ocampo’s painterly brush strokes infuses his paintings with conceptual prowess and visual absurdity, that has undoubtedly influenced and will continue to influence future generations of artists.   

Manuel Ocampo has exhibited internationally for over fifteen years, including participation in the 43rd Corcoran Biennial, the Seville Biennial (2004), the Venice Biennale (2001,1993), The Berlin Biennial II (2001), The Kwangju Biennial (1997) and Documenta IX (1992) as well as the exhibition Made in California:  Art, Image & Identity 1900-2000, at LA County Museum of Art. He exhibits frequently in Germany, Belgium, France, Mexico, and Spain, and his work is included in museum and important collections worldwide. Ocampo is a recipient of NEA, The American Academy in Rome Fellowship and Pollock- Krasner awards to name a few.  Having lived in Los Angeles, Rome, and Seville,  Manuel Ocampo currently resides in Manila.

"[] (FOAM, CONTACT PAPER, SHADOW BOX-TYPE FRAME)" by STEPHANIE SYJUCO
Location: Babaylan Lodge

FIFTEENTH MENTION DUE TO UPDATE

Stephanie Syjuco continues to keep busy! Here's a summary of her recent and forthcoming activities:

-------------------
UPCOMING:
-------------------

"There is Always a Machine Between Us"
September 6 - November 17, 2007
Opening Reception Thursday, September 6 from 5 to 8 p.m.
SF Camerawork, 657 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA

http://www.sfcamerawork.org
skype name: stephaniesyjuco

SF Camerawork's galleries become a global gathering place, a research lab and an ongoing experiment in visual communication this fall with "There is always a machine between us," an interactive exhibit of work sourced from and inspired by the Internet. I'll be available via online chat to talk to anyone and everyone about anything under the sun! Visitors can sit down to watch an ever-changing program of artist-created online videos, interviews, performances, studio tours and more. They can also chat with cultural producers around the world in real time and browse a visual library of material found on the web that informs the work of participating artists. In the gallery or back at home, the public can go online to view artwork related to the exhibit and can even upload video responses to it.

Organized by curators Kate Fowle, Karla Milosevich, Chuck Mobley, and Dan Orendorff, the show is designed to generate new material as it evolves. SF Camerawork will continually post notices of upcoming artist projects and chat opportunities taking place in the gallery on its website at www.sfcamerawork.org. Links will also be provided to the exhibit's companion online pages. Visitors are encouraged to check the website frequently for updates and additions.

"Fashion Hackers and Haute Couture Heretics"
September 4 - October 11, 2007
*I'll be in-residence at the gallery from September 11 - 15, 2007 -- come on by!
Garanti Gallery, Istanbul, Turkey

http://www.garantibank.com/welcome/gg_2007.html

Curated by fashion designer Otto von Busch (http://www.selfpassage.org) this exhibition investigates how fashion can be hacked, recircuited and transmutated. The participating artists and designers use hacking, shopdropping, and craftivism as tactics used in the outskirts of fashion and explore these methods further through a series of open workshops at the gallery. During the six-week relay the artists and designers taking part in the exhibition propose new ways of operating within the fashion system, reverse engineer the concept of fashion in order to find ways to practically hack it. These artists and designers are not subverting fashion as much as subconstructing it, tuning it, and making its subroutines run in new ways.

Artist schedule: Giana González (PA): 4-11 September; Stephanie Syjuco/Counterfeit Crochet Project (US): 11-15 September; Megan Nicolay (US): 18-22 September; Cat Mazza (US): 22-27 September; Junky Styling (UK): 28-29 September; Rüdiger Schlömer (DE): 2-6 October; SHRWR (SE): 2-11 October
