THURSDAY 29 JUNE 06 >>basement (till Saturday) 060629.frontprint.gif ARTNOTOIL Climate chaos is set to have a catastrophic effect on all of us, while hitting the poorest hardest. Oil is a curse that also fuels war, poverty and environmental destruction. Yet the companies most responsible are profiting handsomely, and they are still welcome it seems in many of our most prestigious public galleries and museums. Why? Art Not Oil is an exhibition and a campaign, committed to showing powerful political/ecological art, to seeing an end to oil sponsorship of the arts, and to helping build movements for climate justice both here and throughout the world. As well as work that looks at the negative impacts of fossil fuels, we welcome work that looks at positive alternatives and solutions. Send us your art - turn your visions, nightmares, anger and hope into creative resistance! email web 07708 794665 Art Not Oil is a project of London Rising Tide: See also Shell is the new sponsor of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award: we're lost for words (temporarily) 060629.backprint.gif

TUESDAY 04 JULY 06 new art on the far wall KARL KRAFT open keyboard PIANO NIGHT >>basement (until Sunday) 0607040.drawingdrawing.jpg draw_drawing_ Thanks to everyone who participated in the first show draw_drawing_ in 2004. The participants came from all over the planet; 400 people sent me about 1000 drawings. We had all kind of feedback and praise. The opening night was beautiful, we had a lot of guests and lots of London Biennale artists. The night culminated with performances by David Medalla Adam Nankervis and Ernesto Sarezale, Claudia Balduzzi, Luna Montenegro and Adrian Fisher. The success naturally was trigged by the collective efforts conducted by everyone to collaborate side-by-side representing the particular modes of expression found in the different geographies. I couldn't not mention the optimistic wishes of Liliana Mercenario Pomeroy, form Cuernavaca capturing the essence of the project. We had all kinds of visitors hosted by Cecilia Madureira, who invigilated the gallery. The visitors loved it. A Graphic Design teacher complemented on the relevance of having a show with such variety of mannerisms; from different consideration of support, mediums towards many distinct inventiveness of making the line. As he said to me: 'I should bring all my students to make them aware what a drawing can be.' The response was so overwhelming that it made me think about doing it again. giacomo picca draw_drawing_2 You are invited to take part in the exhibition 'draw_drawing_2' as part of the London Biennale 2006. The exhibition will take place at The Foundry, 86 Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch, London EC2A 3JL, between 4th and 9th July 2006. The event is open to anyone who reads this. All you have to do is to make any drawing and send it to me by post, to: draw_drawing_2 19 Rumford House, Bath Terrace London SE1 6PW England You can send as many drawings as you like, at any time and it will be included in the exhibition. Also, you can forward this email to anyone who would like to participate in it. I would ask you to make a line drawing in any medium and any size not bigger then A3 (~30 cm x 44 cm), put your name, the date, the place and country where you are drawing on the same side of the drawing. If you want your name to be included on the invitation card, I have to receive your drawing by the 12 June 2006 otherwise; your name will be included in the electronic card. I am going to send as many cards as I can but if you want me to post some cards to you, could you please send me a stamped addressed envelope or give me an idea of another way to reach you. After the exhibition, the drawings are not going to be sent back but you can arrange to collect them. The drawings are going to be stored as a collection. If you need to contact me, click the link contact at: Performances: The exhibition will have 5 opening nights with performances. You are invited to send me an intention of performance and a proposal as soon as possible for schedule due to limited time for each night. The intention of this exhibition is to follow the journey of information through digital pathways-internet, see how far it propagates and how it returns-via post as a means of representation. It is an investigation into how the 'universal' written words open responses from experiences inhabiting particular spaces. How subjective experiences from different places are shared with other spaces: geographical spaces or mental spaces. It is an attempt to find out if a line really defines a boundary, if it is a sign for differences or similarities. As Heiddeger quotes: _a boundary is not that at which something stops but, - the boundary is that from which something begins its essential unfolding_ The boundaries of the Gallery will not be an end, not the final showing of the drawings. The visiting public will be invited to represent their own experiences and desires also - making and adding drawings throughout the show. The juxtaposition and accumulation of images that speak of the differences in realities intends to celebrate the diversity of cultures and societies and their individuality mediated through a common language, drawing. The idea is also to just appreciate a sense of joy mediated through the mark making and accumulation of lines, resulting in a drawing made by different people. Will we re-define notions of space by the process of accumulation? The exhibition is going to be held in July 2006 during the London Biennale 2006, reflecting the spirit of its founder, David Medalla.
