      • This Red Door presents: "occupy Kara Walker"

        This Red Door presents: “occupy Kara Walker” With the 2008 publication of “Kara Walker Yes/No/? ” by Howardina Pindell et. al. an ever relevant discussion resurfaced regarding the artist’s responsibility to her community. The Occupy Wall St. movements have brought to the forefront a disconnect between individualism in the powerful worlds of finance and politics and the collectivist power of the people in the disenfranchised majority. If diversity, education and not-for-profit art spaces represent (some of) the expressions of progressive art movements, in such movements what is the place of the “rampant individualist” model of artist? What of the “genius” model that only recently has become a site of gender, racial, ethnic inclusion? By what mechanisms does a practicing artist become an “art star” (as individualist); what are the limits, goals or responsibilities of this appellation? Sunday, Oct. 30th, 2011 Kara Walker offered that part of her identity (“art star”) up for inquiry about the contradictory role of the artist within the Occupy movement. Presented by "This Red Door" Format: "Work & Discussion" - Open group and visitor round table discussion, no lecture Moderators: Jomar Statkun, Christopher Stackhouse & Jared Friedman Within This Red Door, "Work & Discussion" is a series of conversations between creators, thinkers, and good talkers about subjects ranging from art, literature, performance, utilitarian labor, education and teaching, scholarship, and ways of living. “This Red Door” is a collaborative attempt by artists Jomar Statkun, Jared Friedman, and Christopher Stackhouse to expand terms and conditions that may define ‘studio practice’. Our room behind the door is a discursive space where we integrate an address to the plastic arts through a salon styled rotation of objects, tandem lectures, informal talks, literary readings, film/video screenings, short plays, music, dinner parties, among other kinds of impromptu gatherings and aleatory occurrences. It is our hope that an open ended interpretation of art and social functionality treated this way will inspire non-hierarchical secular discussion between artists and the general public about topics including arts education, politics, barter economies, social capital, personal taste and opinion, and friendship. To develop a porous group conversation that is inviting to strangers and old familiars alike is the goal. We plan to keep the door to our studio open (literally) as often as we can. Whether we are working there, having an event, or just entertaining friends and acquaintances, we welcome visitors interested in experiencing the place upon which they are entering. "occupy Kara Walker" This Red Door 2011 Thank you to Kara Walker Video: Francesse Maingrette & Aram Jibilian Thank you to Painting Space 122 Thank you to all those who participated This Red Door www.thisreddoor.com

                    At Occupy Wall Street, Central Synagogue Senior Rabbi Peter Rubinstein played a critical but under-the-radar role in preventing violent confrontations between protestors and the city. Stated Rabbi Rubinstein to The Jewish Week, “My single motivating concern was really the well-being of the city and the protesters. It would be to nobody’s benefit, not the city’s or theirs, to have a face-off. My goal was to prevent any potential clashes that didn’t need to happen.”
