LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner

Commencing at 9am on January 20, 2017, the day of the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, the public is invited to deliver the words “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US” into a camera mounted on a wall outside the Museum of the Moving Image, New York, repeating the phrase as many times, and for as long as they wish.

Open to all, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the participatory performance will be live-streamed continuously at www.hewillnotdivide.us for four years, or the duration of the presidency. In this way, the mantra “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US” acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community.

Shia LaBeouf (b. Los Angeles, USA), Nastja Säde Rönkkö (b. Helsinki, Finland), and Luke Turner (b. Manchester, UK) make art together as LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner . Their practice explores connection, collaboration and creation across the networks. Past projects and performances include #ALLMYMOVIES (NewHive / Angelika Film Center, New York, 2015), #TOUCHMYSOUL (FACT, Liverpool, 2015), #TAKEMEANYWHERE (BMoCA / The Finnish Institute in London, 2016), and most recently #ANDINTHEEND (Sydney Opera House, 2016).

Museum of the Moving Image advances the understanding, enjoyment, and appreciation of film, television, and digital media by presenting exhibitions, education programs, and screenings and events, and by collecting and preserving moving-image related artifacts.

NewHive is proud to host the livestream website at www.hewillnotdivide.us.

╰╮You can tell I’m alive and well because I weep continuously.
﹅Opening Reception: January 13, 6–9pm﹅January 13 – February 26, 2017﹅Knockdown Center﹅Knockdown Center﹅52-19 Flushing Ave, Queens, New York
·÷±‡± ±‡Knockdown Center is pleased to present “You can tell I’m alive and well because I weep continuously.,” an exhibition that features David Court, Erin Diebboll, David Horvitz, Anouk Kruithof, Amanda Turner Pohan, and Steven Zultanski, curated by Alison Burstein.

The show brings together the work of five artists whose techniques resonate with Agony’s provocative alchemical idiom: these artworks quantify bodily and affective features, apply logical and scientific reasoning to absurd ends, and manipulate the linkages between language and things. By placing the objects in calculated proximity to one another—and in relation to the connective tissue of Zultanski’s text—the exhibition format effects its own dynamic shift, conjuring poem-as-exhibition.

“You can tell I’m alive and well because I weep continuously.” invites viewers to inspect examples of morphed materiality within and between the elements on view, and thereby creates opportunities to consider the potential (and celebrate the futility) of giving stable form to ephemeral traits or experiences

╰╮Without a Body | Ivana Bašić, FlucT & Sable Elyse Smith ༄Hosted by SIGNAL
﹅Andrea Rosen Gallery 525 W 24th St, New York, New York﹅January 6 – February 4, 2017
The body is the boundary point of overt social control — something that can be worked, borrowed against, confined, a unit that can be processed. The artists in this exhibition share a concern with the body as the locus of dispute between the world and the self, in conflicts both physical and psychological, and the ways in which the systems of social control through which our bodies must move work within and without us.

FlucT is the collaboration between performers Sigrid Lauren and Monica Mirabile, who create highly charged choreographic works exploring social control and power dynamics enacted upon the body. Their “violently intimate” dance practice frequently sees their bodies colliding and entangling, and the two artists locked in confrontation with the audience and each other.

╰╮In)compatible ༄Hosted by Interstitial
﹅January 14 6 PM – 9 PM PST﹅Interstitial﹅6007 12th Ave S, Seattle, Washington
Interstitial presents “(in)compatible”, a group exhibition with new works from renowned media artists Dylan Neuwirth, Carla Gannis, Faith Holland, and Kathleen Daniel that explore the origins of online culture, structure, and aesthetic. Through sculpture, video, and installation works, this exhibition explores a new and dynamic area of contemporary art: the post-internet movement.
“(in)compatible” greets the viewer with Daniel’s otherworldly video work tucked into the entrance corner of the gallery. Suspended monitors create a false wall displaying a triptych of Gannis’s recent video work “A Subject Self-Defined.” Sculptural objects by Holland examine the “anthropomorphized interaction of technology with itself.” Neuwirth presents a series of illuminated glass sculptures containing helium, neon, argon, krypton, and xenon. Together the exhibited works form an eclectic expression of the current digital moment.
This exhibition is presented in collaboration with I Want You Studio.

My Five Internet Obsessions: Sarah Ahmed

Sarah Ahmed physically lives in the GCC but emotionally in the world wiLD web. She calls herself a creative because she still can’t call herself an artist. She gives plants new homes when her life gets messy, and sends postcards to strangers. She is the founder & curator of jaffatelaqlam.com. Now Sarah shares with us her top 5 internet obsessions of the moment.

1. surveillance cameras around the world // something about the cameras capturing scenery/people in low resolution makes me actively paranoid

2. infinte zooming – // i have this bookmarked for when i want to relax

3. crying sessions’ youtube search: people meeting their puppies for the first time

4. chants sung by pearl divers a long time ago in the gulf. these soft sad songs break and heal me.

5. seeking plants in google maps // through google maps, i like entering malls, organizations and offices to look for plants.
