The next Synthetic Zero event at BronxArtSpace [www.bronxartspace.com] will be curated by Mitsu Hadeishi, and will be on Sat June 29 7-10pm and Wed July 3 6-9pm. The show includes performance, experimental video, music, video installations, visual art and photography. (Please share this event on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/193615910793362/).
The Synthetic Zero events are a series of art events focusing on high quality experimental and contemporary work in different media. We don't typically specify a theme in advance for each event but instead work with ideas that emerge from the interaction between the submitted work and curatorial interests. By working this way, the events reflect back the dialogue and practice of artists involved and create evocative encounters for the audience.

A walking event that reconsiders the radical politics of Thoreau in our time. Connect observation, environmental awareness, aesthetic action, and social change to the climate crisis now.

As we walk we will consider what is nature, what is changing, and what is radicalism today?
This event is part of WORK OUT, an outdoor exhibition of the work of Futurefarmers, Fritz Haeg, Jane D. Marsching, and Andi Sutton who have each created alternative, sustainable engagements with the landscape in deCordova’s Sculpture Park. Through October 6 at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, 51 Sandy Pond Road, Lincoln, MA.

Use art for the environment – design a logo for the ASEAN Heritage Parks! A design contest open to artists from across the ASEAN region (residents of ASEAN Member States) with a cash prize of US$ 1,000.
National parks, wildlife sanctuaries, and national protected areas are quite common, but most people are unaware that the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has the first network of regional protected areas in the world. Known as the ASEAN Heritage Parks (AHPs), these sites are protected areas of high conservation importance which preserve a complete spectrum of representative ecosystems in the ASEAN region. Including natural/national parks, nature reserves, cultural sites and pre-historic sites, AHPs represent the very best of species and ecosystems of ASEAN.
To create greater recognition for the significance of AHPs, set them apart from other protected areas, and promote AHPs as prime nature destinations, the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) is launching an ASEAN Heritage Parks logo design contest. The winning logo will serve as the trademark to identify a specific protected area as an AHP.
ACB is encouraging artists from across the ASEAN region to join the AHP Logo Design Contest. The winner will be awarded during the 4th ASEAN Heritage Parks Conference scheduled on 1-4 October 2013 in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines.

Exhibition The theme,WAX(in')Blue refers to the color blue and all its meanings. Work must contain the color blue. This exhibition is open to midwest-based artists. Mixed media is welcomed, but media must primarily consist of "hot wax" encaustic. 2D work only, unless it can be hung.
Johansson Projects is please to present Members Only, a solo exhibition featuring new paintings by Jennie Ottinger.
Jennie Ottinger grew up in a small town in Massachusetts, where Catholic rules and rituals designated the course of her daily activities. After high school Ottinger, desperate to taste that legendary California freedom, fled to the Bay Area where she immediately joined a sorority. In her new exhibition Members Only, Ottinger explores the little laws that separate the chosen ones from the masses, whether they be members of a congregation, Boy Scouts or sorority sisters. Ottinger navigates the aesthetics of these exclusive societies, depicting the precarious moment when a child's adorable uniform, from the right angle, looks almost like a cult member's regalia. Ottinger revisits childhood's most exclusive clubs with her signature combination of nostalgia and horror. Her grotesque depictions of playground scenarios captures the endless space between a traumatic childhood experience and an adult's dismissive "awwwww." Uniformed kids turn into flesh-colored clowns, their exaggerated expressions communicating acceptance or rejection in a flash. Textured blots of paint sharply translate into cockeyed looks, both the haunting gaze that begs you to join and the icy glare that assures you are not welcome.
On Saturday, June 15, 2013, CHG Circa presents international street artist Ben Eine’s exhibition “Innocence” featuring an exclusive collection of his famed work, shown on the Victorian subway walls and rail yard fences of an Eine installation experience.
From his recent collaboration with luxury brand Louis Vuitton to his Virgin Atlantic in-flight and departure lounge “Gallery in the Air” exhibitions, Eine is pushing the boundaries of urban art to new dimensions. “None of us could have imagined we would've been celebrated artists. We all were just into graffiti and wanted to push the art form forward. Looking back, it helped that we were so young, because if we were striving to become artists, then it would've affected the work we did. Eine adds about his exhibition in a feature with Interview Magazine. “A lot of our styles were created by the innocence we had. So these paintings in my show are about those layers of graffiti and the street and the interesting patterns they create.”
In the London urban art underground, Eine’s graphic lettering iconified the streets and shutters with a bold, bright style. With vibrant typography, Eine’s letters show as visual artifacts, phonetic with colors and contrasts. In painting an entire London street with epic spray paint letters, the street was renamed “Alphabet Street” and described by UK’s The Times as a “living piece of art,” winning the hearts and minds of England with his inviting work. In 2010, his colorful canvas work “Twentyfirst Century City” was presented to President Obama as a gift from the UK Prime Minister David Cameron, finding Ben Eine world recognition.
Eine’s symbols of color, contrast and form framed by street, shutter, and canvas, create a living syntax: a recognition of letters and words at play, abstract in the street and the gallery. Eine’s art is figuratively laconic with its graffiti origins, and ironic with phrases as “Vandalism” co-opting criminal mischief for the bright aesthetics of his urban art. In the graffiti underground, Eine conceptualized the outlaw tag as a medium of innocence resistant to control - art versus vandalism. Within the exhibition space, his street themes find new mercurial contrasts - art versus business. Art’s innocence, resilient to control, is what Eine calls happy graffiti.
The opening reception for Eine’s “Innocence” exhibition takes place Saturday, June 15, 2013 at CHG Circa. The reception is open to the public, and the exhibition will be on view through July 13, 2013.

[Image: Handheld Histories as Hyper-Monuments by Carmin Karasic, 2007] Digital Art and the Urban Environment: Symposium, Art Exhibition, and Scholarly Volume :: October 4, 2013 :: Pace University, Downtown Manhattan, New York City :: Call for Participation — Deadline: July 13, 2013.
Digital and new media artists utilize innovations in locative media, tracking technologies, telecommunication networks, and novel computer interfaces to craft artworks that create new ways to connect with the city. Just as their predecessors transformed urban neighborhoods, such as New York’s SoHo and Chelsea, through their energy and imagination, today’s artists are altering our perceptions of, and relationships with, urban space though their digital inventions and interventions. Thus, it is the purpose of this symposium, art exhibition, and scholarly volume to formally appraise the ways new media and digital artists engage urban ecology. It seeks to gather together contributions from artists, architects, computer scientists, designers, urban planners, social scientists, critical theorists, and others to consider these new modes of seeing, representing, and connecting within the urban setting.
There are three possible ways to participate:
1. Symposium. Propose an oral presentation, dialog, panel, or other form of audience engagement for the symposium. Topics can range from reviews of how technology supports digital artistic practice to social studies of how a group or community is engaged by the work of digital and new media artists – and everything in between.
The proposal should be approximately 300 words in length, include a very short list of important references, the names and affiliations of the presenters, along with a brief bio of each. Papers related to all accepted presentations will be considered for the edited scholarly volume (see below).
2. Edited Scholarly Volume. The goal of the scholarly volume is to define and contextualize the ways new media and digital artists engage the urban environment and its population. It seeks chapter proposals that describe theories, applications, analyses, case studies, reviews, histories, and manifestos that include, but art not limited to:
Artistic and design practices for the urban setting
Artistic creations and practice based on scientific/technological models and simulations
Virtual and physical information artifacts related to, or created through, artistic and design processes
Artistic mapping of information within the urban setting
The relationship between information spaces and urban spaces
The role of the viewer in urban art
How digital artistic practice engages communities within the urban setting
Technological advances supporting urban art
User interfaces supporting urban art
As with the symposium proposal, a chapter proposal should be approximately 300 words in length,include a very short list of important references, the names and affiliations of the presenters, along with a brief bio of each. It is anticipated that the scholarly volume will be published by a major international publisher.
3. Art Exhibition. Artists are invited to submit artwork related to the symposium theme for display either within the Pace Digital Gallery or through its website. Artists should submit a short proposal describing their artwork, a brief biography, and the URL of their websites. All artwork in the show will be documented in the show’s catalog.
All proposals for symposia presentations, book chapters, artwork, and any other inquiries should be emailed to:
