mini round up

Richard Bruce's work is included in a group exhibit called "East West Dialogues: mysticism, Satire and the Legendary Past" curated by Dr. Layla S. Diba at the LTMH Gallery located at 39 E 78 St in NY. The exhibit opened on Wednesday night and will continue through June 27.

I have work included in a exhibit on view through May 30 at the
Bard CCS Library at Bard College.
Curated by Tom Eccles, the group exhibit, "Observed and Considered" also includes work by Mark DeLura, Peter Acheson, and Daniel Berlin. A few images of the work on display are at my
personal blog.

Coming up next week, two evenings of screenings will be held on May 27 & 28 at the New Museum as an introduction of an upcoming exhibit at Bard CSS called The Greenroom.
...The Greenroom, a large-scale exhibition exploring the "documentary turn"
within recent contemporary art practice and its heritage in relation to the
history of film, documentary photography, and television. Set to open in Fall
2008 at the The Hessel Museum of Art and Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard
College, The Greenroom, curated by CCS Bard graduate program director Maria
Lind, will feature works by more than forty artists and extend beyond the
exhibition format to include a long-term research project and related
publications. The research project is a collaboration between The Center
for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, and the artist and theoretician Hito
Steyerl.These preview screenings, organized by curatorial assistant and CCS Bard
graduate student Fionn Meade, include selected works from artists participating
in The Greenroom exhibition.This event is co-sponsored by the Vera List Center
for Art and Politics at The New School and the Center for Curatorial Studies at
Bard College.

The screenings will be held at The New School, Wollman Hall, 65 West 11th Street (enter at 66 West 12th Street), 5th Floor, between 5th and 6th Avenues, NY.
Admission:$8, free for all students, as well as New School and CCS Bard faculty, staff and alumni with valid ID, and members of the New School.For more information, please call CCS Bard at 845.758.7598, write

Via The Cultivated Home, we learn that Kathy Moss has work in a group show called Nature: Themes and Variations which will be opening tomorrow at Argazzi Art in Lakeville CT. 22 Millerton Rd (Rte 44) Lakeville, CT; 860 435 8222. The reception is happening from 4-7pm and the exhibit runs through July 1. Kathy is also included in the Flourish, a group exhibit on view now at Robischon Gallery in Denver, through June 21.

Joan Mellon, who had a lovely solo exhibit at ParaSite back in April 2006, will have work in a group show called No Chromophobia at OK Harris Gallery. No Chromophobia opens on Tuesday, June 3, from 5-7. The exhibit will run through July 11 and after a hiatus will continue from Sept. 2-6.

Speaking of Chromophobia, Kirsten Kucer mentioned that after having read the book in our book club, she's been seeing references to it all over, whether explicit or by default. David Batchelor was recently featured in a couple of talks held at the Tate Modern, one on his work, and the other, a panel discussion on the subject of white. Both are available on iTunes, or through the Tate's website. I was very interested in hearing both discussions, but if my memory serves, either one or both were rather dry. Batchelor mentioned he is set to release a new book which will be a collection of writings by various artists on the subject of color.
