    • Bryan Zanisnik Keeps It in the Family | ART21 "New York Close Up"

      How does an artist figure out what’s truly essential? Performing "A Woman Waits For Me II" (2014) with his parents at Pace University in Lower Manhattan, artist Bryan Zanisnik discusses how he draws on his family and personal history in his artwork. In this film, Zanisnik returns to his parents' home in Springfield, New Jersey to dig up the long-forgotten home movies he made as an adolescent. Inspired by Hollywood film directors like Martin Scorsese, the VHS movies are an unironic mix of slapstick comedy and gangster violence, with Zanisnik's grandmother often playing an armed and dangerous protagonist. Uncovering the videos in graduate school was a eureka moment for Zanisnik. "I thought, 'This is who I really am.' These interests in the abject, the absurd, the humor, the gender inversions, the fragility," he explains, "the conversations between the performer and me behind the camera was really getting to the core of what I wanted out of an artwork." Frequently incorporating his parents in his work, Zanisnik creates performances in which power dynamics—such as struggles for control between parent and child—play out in surreal scenarios. As part of the exhibition "Oblique Strategies" at Pace University's Peter Fingesten Gallery, Zanisnik performs inside a wooden museum display case transformed into a mobile sculpture, as his parents and the audience look on. Tightly confined inside the sculpture and straining to move through the building's hallways, Zanisnik intentionally knocks into onlookers, challenging them to respond. For Zanisnik, the performance "A Woman Waits For Me II" (2014) evokes his own emotional journey from a reclusive adolescent to the artist he is today. Also featuring the artworks "Meadowlands Picaresque" (2013); "Dissociative Pastry and Stone" (2011); "Repetition Compulsion" (2010); "Ten-Thousand Meals Than Ever Yet" (2009); "When I Was a Child I Caught a Fleeting Glimpse" (2009); "He Is Not a Man" (2007); "Next of Kin" (2007); "Family Reunion" (2006); and "Remembrance of Things Past" (2006). Bryan Zanisnik (b. 1979, Union, New Jersey, USA) lives and works in Queens, New York.

      • Using iTree VUE to Quantify Carbon Storage


        from SmithGIS / Added

        Peggy Minnis, Pace University: Many communities have calculated their carbon footprints, but most wonder what role the town’s vegetation plays in reducing that number. The iTree suite of tools has a program that works with GIS to quantify those mitigating effects. VUE is a program that works with USGS National land cover data and GIS to provide this information.

            I missed about the first five minutes of Frances Fox Piven's comments because I was not sure if I could film in the auditorium but once I saw several people filming, I thought it was an OK thing to do. This clip begins with Piven reading an account of what had happened at Zuccotti Park the night before on the sixth month anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. Piven introduced each of the speakers Arun Gupta, John Holloway, Christopher Hedges, and Elaine Bernard.

              Occupy the Economy! Building a Solidarity Economy for People and Planet The time is now to push for an economy that serves the 99% instead of the wealthy and powerful elites. This workshop will provide an introduction to the solidarity economy - a growing global movement to build an economy that puts people and planet front and center. It is grounded in principles of solidarity, equity in all dimensions (race, class, gender, etc.), sustainability, participatory democracy and pluralism (ie. not a one-size fits all approach). The solidarity economy builds on many existing practices and policies - both mainstream and alternative - and seeks to strengthen and connect these stepping stones to a just and sustainable economic system. The solidarity economy believes that it is critical to both build and resist – that is, build and strengthen solidarity economy practices such as worker cooperatives, community land trusts, or social currencies and also resist the oppression of corporate-dominated capitalism. This workshop will provide an introduction to the conceptual framework, the global movement including the U.S. Solidarity Economy Network, and concrete examples of the solidarity economy. Panel Topics: Economics Political Economy And The Current Crisis Political And Social Movements Moderated by Al Campbell with Craig Borowiak, and Emily Kawano, Ana Margarida Esteves.
