ONCE UPON A TIME: Fairy Tales, Fables and Myths is a juried exhibition of visual art running from June 2 - 28, 2015 at The Studio Door.
In the old times when wishing was still effective came the little stories that for generations explained our world and reflected our experiences. Stories when children, animals and heroes found themselves caught up in wondrous tales in distant lands.
The Studio Door is seeking artwork that represents the storytelling artist. As we all know a picture is worth a 1.000 words. What stories jumped into your work? We invite artists to explore familiar stories (girls in red hoods, bridge trolls and racing rabbits) and as well as those tales less well known to the general public (wandering dervishes, the underwater dragon princess and the webs of Anansi).
Reveal the fantastic, the cautionary and the mundane in your storytelling creations.
Painting, drawing, photo, printmaking, assemblage, collage, mixed media, fiber art, artist book, ceramics, stain glass and sculpture.
No digital prints or photographic reproductions of artwork. Must be original work.
This exhibition does not accept jewelry, video, film, performance art, installation and works requiring an external electrical source.

Malfunctions, fires, and breakdowns have served as the climaxes for Deirdre Sargent’s videos in the past. A question generally remains whether these moments are liberating or futile. At times she seems enamored by the possibility of disorder and entropy, but there also appears to be some doubt whether the idea of spiritual escape might be another pre-packaged stock experience like a tourist vacation with its equally regimented ideas of "exotic" biomes.
Most recently Sargent’s videos have become allegories of our media relationships. They show how images have emerged as our primary sites for experience. Actors watch ever-present screens, demanding us to take the perspectives of others and to confront what others see and how they see it.
These screens take the form not only of TV monitors, but also aquariums, vitrines, and windows. TVs dissolve into glows with the sounds of spectacle as our only remaining indicators. While the appropriated commercial entertainment allows only certain narratives, the "live" frames seem to show alternative relationships to fantasy that invite more empathy. Watching someone else's TV through their window raises the question of where spaces for fantastic projection exist—where do we live our sanctioned, imaginary lives?
Deirdre Sargent (b. 1985, Boston, MA) is an artist who works with digital imaging, sculpture, and moving imge. Her works have been exhibited in numerous shows and screenings in New York City, Brooklyn, Miami, Providence, the Midwest, and elsewhere. She holds a BFA from Pratt Institute and an MFA from Yale School of Art. deirdresargent.net

NATURALLY SYNTHETIC presented by Made in NY Media Center by IFP March 5–27, 2015
Opening reception: Thursday, March 5, 6–9pm Gallery hours: daily 9am–10pm
With the ability to extend sight, memory, and interaction, our media tools foster a naturally synthetic hub through which nature and experience are visualized, made accessible, and become normalized, achieving something that feels naturally synthetic.
The artists selected for this group show make subtle use of their chosen medium to capture and construct synthetic environments that serve to analyze or question things like humanity, what it means to be alive, and under what conditions can fantasy and reality become enmeshed.
NATURALLY SYNTHETIC features work by Caryn Cline, Daniel Lopera, Erica Magrey, Dana Miller, and Kimberly Witham.

Do you ever think in circles only to discover that your mind really is a circle and it’s a knotty maze of chaos and circles have no end and wow *#%! you really are crazy after all…. Welcome to the slippery edge of sanity, where tornados of absurdity and abstruse clouds of hazy climatic beginnings are waiting to push you over the edge. Toe the line of socially acceptable behavior with “Babble Jabber,” a multimedia exploration of bottomless lunacy by the Shanghai-based Liu Dao art collective.
Do you know yourself well enough to trust the clamoring voices in your head? Trust them when they beg you to allow your entire labyrinth-like dreams to come to life when “Babble Jabber” unfolds at island6 Hong Kong. The dynamically deranged exhibition opens with an insanely elegant vernissage on the evening of March 10th, from 7-10pm at 1 New Street, Sheung Wan. Join the island6 crew as they take a leap into the deep end of the human psyche while sipping a handpicked selection of libations from our sponsor, Catangi Wine, that are sure to get the mind (and other things…) flowing.

Deriva is a participative media performance which takes place on public space and can be followed live, through a web browser, anywhere in the world. A smartphone, attached to a bunch of helium filled balloons, broadcasts out of control images of its drifting flight. Equiped with a GPS, a microphone and a camera this smartphone streams its erratic viewpoint through the mobile network. The audience can follow its live broadcast as well as its trace on a map. The stream of real-time generated sound and images can be followed from any Internet connected computer or smartphone. The resulting video is then reversed and can be seen (from end to beginning) at deriva.tv

Portland, Oregon-based Disjecta Contemporary Art Center is accepting proposals for a Curator-in-Residence for its 2016-2017 exhibition season.
Disjecta houses an expansive exhibition space for the presentation of visual and performing arts at the regional, national and international level that speaks to the region’s diverse interests, talents and identities.
The CIR program provides an opportunity for emerging curatorial talent to develop and expand the scope of their practice through a one-year residency. Curators actively engage with a broad range of artists to create a series of exhibitions in Disjecta’s dynamic 3,500-square-foot space.
Throughout the season (September 2016 through April 2017) the Curator-in-Residence will organize four to six exhibitions. The nature of Disjecta’s exhibition space and mission facilitate contemporary work that is installation-based, specific to the site or project-based—though these should not be considered limitations. Disjecta encourages artists and guest curators to challenge themselves and viewers, to take intelligent risks, and to expand definitions of disciplines.
