My work in DEATH Magazine: The Animal Issue



Death #4 is animalistic. Mx Justin Vivian Bond's cat-looking chicken, Pearl, pen's some words for us, and internet guru Alex Blagg answers our questions about death in the digital domain. Also in this issue: are penguins purposefully getting lost? Is it ethical to flush your son's frog and then swap it for a replacement? Are elephants the most funeral-loving animal? Should bird-like mothers involve their children in their suicidal narratives? Did Rudy Huxtable properly grieve Lamont Goldfish? William Hundley, Winston Chmielinski, Stephen Scott Smith, Sarah Shapiro, Brian Kenny and an animate slew of others complete the issue with their distinctive visions of dissolution. Corporeal cover sculpture and photo by Daniel Arsham.

24
DAYS
OF
MATTER
PRINTED


LIVE SCREENPRINTING DAILY Until Dec 24th
Single Artists: Mon-Fri 5-7pm, Sun 4-6pm
Groups of 5-6 Artists: Sat 2-6pm


Curated/organized by J. Morrison

Printed Matter is pleased to present 24 DAYS OF MATTER PRINTED, a live screenprinting project by J. Morrison. From December 1st until the 24th, daily screenprinting sessions will feature a rotating cast of 20 artists creating collaborative works in the Printed Matter storefront. During these sessions, the artistic collaboration will be accumulative, with a new artist each day adding his or her own print to the previously produced prints. Prints will be available for purchase at any stage during this process.

Working under the theme of a "Self-Portrait,” the artists will print their creation on a variety of media - from Sweatshirts, Underwear, Handkerchiefs, and a special fine art Paper Edition of 100. They will be priced affordably, ranging from $10-$100, with the paper edition increasing as the show progresses with all of the artists' screenprints collaged together. The works created will be on exhibit at Printed Matter through mid-January.

This year’s exhibition with J. Morrison follows in a long tradition of Printed Matter's holiday events to support the institution, including past fundraisers organized by the artists' collective Collaborative Projects (or COLAB), and Giftland, curated by Max Schumann and guest curators. J. Morrison’s show title and theme are a play off the “12 Days of Christmas” and in modern commercial times the "25 Days of Christmas," giving an artist's alternative view of holiday consumerism.

GIO BLACK PETER: What You See Is What You Get

Gio's got brand new solo show here in NYC this Thursday!


(exhibition press release):
In a world of “reality” shows about being a house wife, finding the perfect 27 million dollar apartment or being the next great art star one finds themselves at a crossroads.

Do we go the way of “reality” consuming an endless supply of gluttonous pleasures, blindly chasing a dangling top chef meal with the hopes of possibly gaining so much that we may someday achieve the biggest looser status?

Or do we choose a different path. A path that allows the magic of life back into our reality. A path that allows the dance of Purusha and Prakirti, Yin and Yang, to ebb and flow with organic precision. A path uninterrupted by commercial breaks that may have magic around the next corner instead of sponsorship, greed, and ego.

If one chooses the early path an endless supply of pre-planned and produced, simulated landscapes can be found. Yet if one chooses the latter the question of where to beginarises.

This question is not new but ancient. How does one navigate the path less travelled? If one looks to history for the answer one sees that inside all myth and legend the answer is the same, we find a guide. Someone who has set out on the path before us, who can now return with the lessons of his hero’s journey to help others navigate this mysterious and magic landscape. Dante had Virgil, Neo had Morpheus, and sometimes we are all blessed with the truth inside art to lead the way.

In the work of Gio Black Peter I see that truth, I see an artist reacting to the world of simulated reality by looking inward for answers. An artist asking himself within his work the hard questions in life we all come upon on our individual journeys.

With Gio’s authenticity and generosity set to paper and canvas, lyrics and video his role as guide into a new and mysterious landscape is clear.

Gio Black Peter (born Giovanni Andrade Paolo Guevara) is a New York-based performance and visual artist who examines text and subject, truth and fakery, rebellion and authority.

His subversive work has quickly earned him a name in the downtown New York scene of young emerging artists who participate in today’s dialogue about the deconstruction of high profile, white box presentation and the desire to raise art awareness. At the core of Black Peter’s thinking is the idea that the life of art depends on the viewer’s willingness to suspend his or her pre-programmed thoughts and play into the believability of magic. Truth and a masterful aesthetic draw the viewer deep into Black Peter’s art—a visceral exploration of vulnerability and self-reflection.

Since 2007, Gio Black Peter has performed and exhibited work worldwide, including: New York, Berlin, Madrid, Milan, Bergen, London, Antwerp, Tokyo, and Paris and now at BrianRiley1ProjectSpace.

We are honored by the opportunity to work with Gio and look forward to sharing the next two shows with you. Please join us on November 17, 2011 for the opening of “WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET, Drawings by Gio Black Peter.

Will will soon have the date set for Gio-the-PAINTINGS, in early 2012.



BrianRiley1ProjectSpace invites you to
“WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET” Drawings by Gio Black Peter.
Artist Reception: November 17, 6 to 8 PM
