SIXTEENTH MENTION DUE TO UPDATE

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

CURRENT SHOWS:

WE INTERRUPT YOUR PROGRAM
Mills College Art Museum, Oakland CA
Jan 16 - March 16, 2008
Opening reception: January 23, 5:30 - 7:30
http://www.mills.edu/museum

The works in We Interrupt Your Program intervene in, reconfigure, augment, and/or re-contextualize dominant narratives of war, power, science, technology, and gender from what are arguably distinctively female and feminist perspectives. Spanning a range of media and aesthetic strategies, the exhibition includes computer-manipulated video, digital animation, video installation, interactive sculpture, and photography. All of the artists in We Interrupt . . . respond to contemporary mainstream media—including network television, mass market feature films, instructional science videos, and online communication platforms such as email and chat rooms—interrogating them as restrictive vocabularies and structures that routinely exclude the female voice and point of view. Their work, which often formally refers to art historical precedents like minimalism or landscape painting, as well as popular visual culture, is powerfully expressive, conceptually complex, and relevant to our cultural moment.

Artists include: Maria Antelman, Maja Bajevic, Maria Friberg, Nina Katchadourian, Marisa Olson, Julia Page, Shannon Plumb, Jean Shin, Renatta Sitoy, Julianne Swartz Stephanie Syjuco, Claudia X. Valdez, Anne Walsh, & Gail Wight with RETORT

TAKE ACTION! 83 Ways to Change the World
Museum of World Culture, Goteborg, Sweden
Jan 19, 2008 - August 2009
http://www.varldskulturmuseet.se/smvk/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=822

What are the driving forces that propel society forward? Why do people rebel? Are they heroes or vandals? Today, a growing number of people are actively involved in creating alternative solutions in society, instead of blindly putting their faith in experts and politicians. Others are confronting existing systems in order to dismantle them. "Take Action! 83 Ways to Change the World" is about individuals who occupy land, refuse to follow orders blindly, create armies of clowns, crochet their own Gucci handbags or start up their own banks. They offer resistance and ask questions, sometimes even at a risk to their own lives.

THE WAY THAT WE RHYME: Women, Art & Politics
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco
March 28 - June 29, 2008
curated by Berin Golonu
http://www.ybca.org

This exhibition showcases the politically charged work of a new generation of women who use creativity as a form of empowerment and a means for making social change. Emphasizing performativity, collaboration and coalition building, the artworks spotlight the daring of women who unapologetically assert themselves, and project their identities out into the world to address a range of issues from the personal to the global. While the works are influenced by the feminist ideologies and activist movements of the past, including the anti-war, pro-choice and environmental movements of the 60s and 70s; the gendered, multi-cultural identity politics of the 80s; and the rebellious Riot Grrrl punk music movement of the 90s; they also speak loudly and clearly to the issues facing women right now.

Artists include: Lisa Anne Auerbach, Andrea Bowers, Nao Bustamante, Tammy Rae Carland, Vaginal Davis, Eve Fowler, Deborah Grant, MK Guth, Taraneh Hemami, Miranda July and Shauna McGarry, LTTR, Leslie Labowitz and Suzanne Lacy, Aleksandra Mir, Laurel Nakadate, Shinique Smith, subRosa, SWOON and Tennessee Jane Watson, The Counterfeit Crochet Project organized by Stephanie Syjuco, The Toxic Titties, Jessica Tully, and RiotGrrl zines from the Independent Publishing Resource Center, Portland.

Emergency Biennale in Chechnya
Playspace Gallery, California College of the Arts
1111 Eighth Street, San Francisco, CA 94103
http://www.cca.edu/about/directions.php
Opening Reception: 6-9 pm Jan 25

On the occasion of the 2008 World Social Forum (WSF), The Global Commons Foundation announces two public events in San Francisco: Emergency Biennale at CCA January 25, and World Social Forum at New College January 26.

The Emergency Biennale in Chechnya was conceived and organized in 2005 by independent Paris and San Francisco-based curator Evelyne Jouanno as an echo to the 1st Moscow Biennial and as a reaction to the destruction of a people and culture. Drawing attention to the plight of Chechnya and more broadly to human and social emergencies in the context of “ambivalent globalization” while also questioning the phenomenon and proliferation of international Biennials, the Emergency Biennale in Chechnya opened on February 23rd, 2005 in different clandestine locations in the city of Grozny, and simultaneously in Paris, at the Palais de Tokyo. After Paris, the touring part of the exhibit moved on to Brussels, Bolzano, Milan, Riga, Tallinn, Vancouver, Puebla, Istanbul, and now to San Francisco. In each location new artists are invited, conferences organized, and additional suitcases readied to be sent to Chechnya, where the artworks will join their twins and the collection will become the foundation for a museum.

This will be the first presentation of the exhibit in the United States. Artists invited on the occasion of the 10th stop in San Francisco: Lindsay Benedict, Dalida Maria Benfield, Rose Khor, Tony Labat, Julio Morales, Allan de Souza, Sergio de la Torre, Trinh T. Minh-ha, Jenifer Wofford.
