Update from Critical Correspondence, 11.19

Hi All,

CC is very active behind the scenes at the moment, with lots of new interviews and writings in the works. We’ve recently posted an interview between Christian Rizzo and John Jasperse about the work Christian showed at The Kitchen recently. Also, the writers involved in the Moving Dialogue exchange between US and Romanian artists have continued to experiment and produce a wide spectrum of writings and ways of documenting this exchange through language. Follow the exchange here. Lastly, we’ve posted links to Sarah Maxfield‘s blog interviewing Andrew Dinwiddie and Jeff Larson, as well as a spirited conversation initiated by an interview with Vallejo Gantner in L Magazine and followed up with a Facebook conversation on Neal Medlyn’s Facebook page about the way US artists are funded vs European artists, and the role of mobility inside of these structures and the way artists are making work. Read about it here.

Happy reading.

Love,

CC

Updates from Critical Correspondence, 5.04.10

Hi All

Wanted to call your attention to a conversation with Isabel Lewis and Levi Gonzalez on the occasion of her show Strange Action happening this weekend at PS 122. Isabel and Levi talk about the differences between New York and Berlin, Isabel’s shifting relationship to collaboration, performance and process, and her evolution as an artist.

Also, stay tuned for a very personal conversaton on the role of doubt in the creative process and how life gets absorbed into a working process when Donna Uchizono talks with Ralph Lemon about her dual location performance this weekend at Baryshnikov Arts Center and The Kitchen.

Much more to come on Critical Correspondence in the coming weeks as we wrap up the season, so be sure to visit.

best,

CC

Update from Critical Correspondence 5/3

Hello from Critical Correspondence!

Many new artist conversations coming down the pipe so stay tuned. In the meantime we have just posted a conversation between Raimund Hoghe and Lili Chopra. Last fall was the first time Raimund Hoghe’s work has been seen in the US, thanks in part to his NYC presentation in the French Institute’s Crossing the Line Festival curated by Lili Chopra and Simon Dove. Hoghe, and ex-dramaturg of Pina Bausch’s Tanzteater Wuppertal, shares with us his unique perspective on making work and the personal and political ramifications of our aesthetic values.

Updates from Critical Correspondence 4/17

Hello from Critical Correspondence! Keeping you posted as to what’s new. Jean Butler has posted two interviews in a series on Danspace Project’s visionary Platform curation project – one with Back to NYC curator Juliette Mapp and one with participating artist Jen Rosenblit. Also, check out a video interview with Clarinda MacLow as part of Alejandra Martorell’s series What Sustains You? which takes a thoughtful look at various artist’s strategies at creating something functional out of the crazy existence of being a dance artist in NYC. Also up is an interview with the organizers of Fantasy Generator, a rethinking of the traditional model of a residency that took place at Hollins University last summer with the idea of radical generosity at its core. And we have notes from one of the discussions as part of the Trisha Brown Dance Company’s 40th Anniversary Lecture Series called “Talking About the Work.” Much more in the works so check back!
