            This performance took place at Powerhouse Arena during the 2010 Dumbo Arts Festival: 36 models followed live direction, as vocalists and violins emerged from within the "living picture." The performance featured an original a Cappella score by Rima Fand and Sarah Small, and co-performance direction by Adam J. Thompson. Directly following the performance, a panel of choreographers, curators, and art historians (Jill Sigman, Mashinka Firunts, Danny Snelson, and Natalie Galazka) led a discussion about the contemporary intersection of performance and photography. The panel was moderated by Elizabeth Barragan and was curated by Lindsay Comstock.

              May 2012: So far, this video has been viewed over 30,000 times, and is still the subject of much controversy. It's important for people to understand the impact Colette has had on the arts scene in New York City and throughout the world for over 30 years. Upon seeing this video, the editors of Artnet.com, Art Info; Rolling Stone Magazine; the Huffington Post; and New York Magazine all agree. JANUARY 2012: A Barney's window display of Lady Gaga's work has legendary multi-media performance artist Colette's notorious creations written all over it. Colette, whose seminal performance art and multi-media installations originated out of New York City's vibrant art scene in the 1970's has traveled to museums and galleries all over the world; including the Guggenheim; MOMA; and The Whitney. Upon seeing Barney's Lady Gaga window display in midtown, Colette takes to the streets in protest to send a clear message to the Gaga camp that Colette is standing outside the door and must be invited in and given proper respect.

                  Im a big fan of Jill Scott. Her first album is always being played. What drew me to her was the refreshing sound that was missing from the radio. She had come from the place that so many people lack or hold dearly, love. In fact, her aura seems to be personified by how she dresses and holds herself. And to top it off she can write the words to the songs she sings. That means a lot to me. Her second album helped me overcome some of my own challenges. Her words in the song family reunion helped me mend my own family ties, amen. It was at that point that I need to give something back to her. Read this post: It's been a while since I've done a portrait of her. I like this look as I think it's very fitting to her song. It's also a testament to many peoples lives. But remember, we don't fight hate with hate, That's never gotten us anywhere... ever. ikeepmoving.com

                    Recorded at 848 Community Space, June 24, 2000 to celebrate the opening of Tasmanian photographer Tony Ryan's show. This is when I performed with my CHEROTIC ALL-STAR BAND at the opening of the first U.S. exhibition of the work of the tasmania's erotic photographer Tony Ryan. It broke out in the second half of the performance into a very juicy erotic dance which pulled in several audience members! When I reviewed Tony Ryan's first book of photography, “Beauty/Reality” for the 7th issue of my zine, The Cherotic (r)Evolutionary, we had not met in person. I met Tony on the Internet. I was searching for erotic art that wasn't legs-spread, beer- can- in- the- ass- dildo- in- cunt- sucking- cock parody on sex (such parodies have their place, but ...). And that is where the world also met Tony. On the Internet is where Tony broke out of the isolation that is felt by most artists who do not do fashionable art, who do not fit in, or who run afoul of the local art power structure, and/or live in the boonies ... In Tony's case, Tasmania! As our correspondence continued, I encouraged Tony to live out one of his dreams, to come to the Bay Area and show his photography in the U.S.. He was able to actually come twice, appearing on my live internet show, The Shaman's Den, both times. In 2000, Tony showed his photography at 848 Divisadero, a radical art space in San Francisco, where I had done a series of performances in the late 90s. We did a great music jam to launch the exhibit. He also showed his work at Passion Flower in Oakland, an adult shop where I also performed over the years, doing all-night and other extended time ritual audience-participation performances. Tony was eager to return in 2001, so I set two of my students to work finding spaces that would host Tony's photography in San Francisco and Oakland/Berkeley. This time, Tony was able to show in four different spaces, including a repeat visit to Passion Flower, and an exhibit at Artists Television Access (ATA) in San Francisco, an underground film/video house where I have also shown my films. I was happy that Tony could show his photos here, to expose a live audience to his work. He was also able to do a series of photo shoots in the Bay Area while he was here. Tony shows that by putting your art directly out into the world, you can by-pass all road blocks that the power structures put in your way. The work is humanistic (thus, truly feminist), completely erotic because it is not limited by sex. Tony, as do I, admits to being especially attracted to working with women, to what he calls the special tension. In fact, he subtitled his first book, "Male Eye-Female Mind". By doing so, he called attention to the major and active role of the female models in the creative process. I think Tony's art and my own have evolved from similar beginnings. Some of my earliest performances were what I call “street performances”. I had been painting oils for years, painting with a brush strapped to my forehead, painting nudes from magazine photos. One day, a rich woman asked me to paint a nude of her. My wife set me and my paints up in the fancy living room as the woman undressed. On that day I realized how art can give people permission to do what normally is forbidden. This began my street series. I sat on the center plaza, "selling newspapers". But selling papers was only a context. The context for me was an excuse for watching people, talking to people who had the slowness and the insightful curiosity to stop and talk...a way for me to ask them to model for me. I painted a lot of the special people from the street performances. I noticed the changes in the people when they took off their clothes; how they relaxed, how they started talking on a deeper level about important personal things. In this same way, the nude body in each of Tony's photos is just the starting point to reveal the "subject's" personality/spirit, to explore relationships, and to dive into the magical intimate altered reality of the shooting session, the special intimate reality created when artist and model come together in art.
