In a move similar to MoMA, in which the museum highlighted the work of artists whose countries were affected by Trump’s travel ban, the Davis Museum at Wellesley College has de-installed or covered all works of art on display that were made by or donated to the museum by immigrants. This “de-installed” display began today and will last until Feb. 21. In total, the museum is covering or removing about 20 percent of the art work on display (roughly 120 pieces). The works, though not viewable, will be marked with labels (which are also available for download) reading “made by an immigrant” or “given by an immigrant.”
I have recently watched several Chantal Akerman films so here is a clip from her most famous film Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles, which she made in 1975.
And here is Akerman discussing the film:
I found this image under a section titled “New Photography from China” in the online ICP collections. Without much context, I was intrigued by the formal composite of the image yet the bizarre action depicted within it.
To Add A Meter To An Anonymous Mountain, Cang Xin (1995)
Here’s what I found out about it:
A group of performance artists called the Beijing East Village, hiked a mountain outside of Beijing on May 11, 1995. They measured the height of the mountain as well as the weight of each participant. They all took off their clothes and formed a pyramid, with the heaviest participants at the bottom and the lightest on top. For about ten minutes, on that afternoon, the mountain’s height was one meter higher.
In the 1990s, Miranda July created a community of amateur female film makers, like herself at the time.
Now, 22 years later, the Getty Research Institute has acquired the collection of videos as well as other ephemera related to the Joanie 4 Jackie community including booklets, posters and letters.
Based in Portland, July handed out pamphlets at punk shows, colleges and grocery stores to spread the word and invite film submissions.
“In 1995, when I was 21, I dropped out of UC Santa Cruz and moved to Portland, Ore., to be with my then-girlfriend and girls in general. A few months later I typed up the pamphlet (above), inviting women to send me their short movies. I described the concept like this: ‘A Challenge and A Promise: Lady, u send me yr movie + $5.00 & I’ll send you the latest Big Moviola compilation (that’s 10 lady-made movies including yrs).’ Nine movies, plus their own, would be sent back as what I called a ‘Chainletter’ tape. After a cease-and-desist letter from Moviola Digital, I changed the name to Joanie 4 Jackie, a name that meant women supporting other women — rooting for them.”
