MONO NO AWARE is an international film event open to any person or group of persons making work that incorporates Super8mm or 16mm film format as part of that presentation. In previous years 16 film was blended with dance performance, Super8 with live spoken word/audience involvement, & multi-projections with live jazz/musical devices. Dancers, Sculptors, Musicians, Theorists, Scientists, Athletes, Visual artists, everyone, AND Film-makers are encouraged to submit. This is not a film festival for film-makers, so much as it is an film event for everyone. Entries are only be accepted on Super8 or 16mm film. FILM ONLY. No Digital Video. We believe there is magic in seeing a film print projected, a presence a poet has when reading their own work, a feeling that resonates in your chest when seeing music performed live. For these reasons we encourage live film with live additional audio/visual elements.

  • Please read a full description about the event on the page titled INFORMATION. There you can read more about the event & how to go about entering your work. The EVENT HISTORY page contains previous years programs and pictures of the event. Be sure to visit the GALLERY to read about 2009’s selected entries and participants biographies.
    SEE YOU NOVEMBER 29TH!

    ‘Zine release party and Closing Reception for Darin Klein and Friends Present: Louis M. Schmidt.
    We’ll be releasing Move Along People Nothing to Feel Here #5 by Louis M. Schmidt, and the as-yet-untitled ‘zine that gallery visitors contributed to during ‘Zine Fest 2009, on November 14. This will also be a closing reception for Schmidt’s month-long residency in Amy Adler’s studio, with great music by DJ Trickmilla (aka Patrick Miller), plus lots of beer and snacks and fun!!

    November 29
    Special Sunday viewing hours: 12-6pm. Join us in celebrating work conceived, created and contemplated this month by Louis M. Schmidt.

    About the project:

    Darin Klein & Friends embark on an experiment in transparency that questions and examines accepted modes of presentation and representation. By temporarily re-purposing the studio of an already established artist, an emerging artist is given a platform for the expression of their own ideas. Possibilities for intervention and creative collaboration are expected to be explored within the walls of the studio. For the first in a series of exhibitions and related programming, Darin Klein & Friends will touch down at Amy Adler’s Echo Park studio for the month of November 2009 with work and projects by Louis M. Schmidt.

    During his month-long residency, Louis M. Schmidt will be installing, exhibiting and creating works on paper, producing a brand new issue of his ‘zine Move Along People Nothing to Feel Here, hosting parties and community-driven get-togethers, educating and learning from friends and strangers, and shooting for the stars – all before your very eyes. He will be joined by a selection of artists and peers using vocabularies complimentary to his own. We invite you to drop by and see how it all plays out.

    Art Radar 11.19.09 - Tim Burton - MoMa
    Art Radar- 11.19.09 – Tim Burton

    Accompanied by the film exhibitions Tim Burton and Tim Burton and the Lurid Beauty of Monsters

    Timed tickets are available for this exhibition at no extra cost. Simply select a specific date and time when you purchase your admission ticket online. Timed-ticket holders are guaranteed entry at the selected time. Untimed tickets do grant entry to the exhibition, but there may be a significant wait. Members and accompanying guests need not wait to enter Tim Burton. Simply present your membership card and/or member guest admission ticket at the exhibition entrance.

    This major career retrospective on Tim Burton (American, b. 1958), consisting of a gallery exhibition and a film series, considers Burton’s career as a director, producer, writer, and concept artist for live-action and animated films, along with his work as a fiction writer, photographer and illustrator. Following the current of his visual imagination from early childhood drawings through his mature work, the exhibition presents artwork generated during the conception and production of his films, and highlights a number of unrealized projects and never-before-seen pieces, as well as student art, his earliest non-professional films, and examples of his work as a storyteller and graphic artist for non-film projects. The opposing themes of adolescence and adulthood, and the elements of sentiment, cynicism, and humor inform his work in a variety of mediums—drawings, paintings, storyboards, digital and moving-image formats, puppets and maquettes, props, costumes, ephemera, sketchbooks, and cartoons. Taking inspiration from sources in pop culture, Burton has reinvented Hollywood genre filmmaking as a spiritual experience, influencing a generation of young artists working in film, video, and graphics.

    Art Radar -11.19.09-House of Industries

    House Industries

    House Industries will close its month-long Type as Object exhibition with a one-day fully-stocked pop-up shop on Thursday, November 19, 2009 at New York’s Type Directors Club.

    Early holiday shoppers, House fans and design aficionados will find a fully-stocked shop with several new hand-pulled serigraphs, T-shirts and selections from their eclectic House Industries objects collection. The shop will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

    Then House Industries lettering and type guru, Ken Barber, will bring all of the alphabetical high concept back to earth with a lecture entitled “Letter as Image” from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., rounding out the all-day pop-up shop event. To further feed New York’s abecedarian obsessed, Ken will also give a full-day workshop (Letter as Image Workshop) at the Type Directors Club on Friday, November 20, 2009, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

    “We’ve spent the last 16 years convincing otherwise mundane alphabetical forms that they can be both the medium and the message by giving them an illustrative flair,” said Barber. “In my lecture and subsequent workshop, I’ll give attendees a glimpse of House’s top-secret letter-making recipes and encourage over-moused hands to break out the pencils and pens again.”

    Interested parties should contact the Type Directors Club directly at 212-633-8943 or email director@tdc.org to register in advance for the lecture and workshop events. Space is limited.

    SpY: The Spanish Banksy

    The artist, who has come to be known as the Spanish Banksy, started as a graffiti artist in Madrid in the mid-Eighties. “By the beginning of the early Nineties he had established himself as the leading figure of the still-young state graffiti scene, offering works with an impeccable style and a solidity that even today are still not very common,” says Javier Abarca, an art critic and university professor specialising in urban art and subcultures.

    SpY had outgrown graffiti by the mid-Nineties but continued to produce “public art” rather than gallery pieces. Like Banksy, he also remains anonymous. Wired.co.uk asked him about his past, his plans and whether we might be seeing flower-shaped road signs in London any time soon.

    Here is a link to more works and an interview:

    Walrus TV Artist Feature: Above Interview from “The Run Up”

    Eventually you’re going to get there. It might take a day, it might take a lifetime, but through that persistence, and through that determination and drive, I think there’s definitely a lot of beauty in that. And a lot of power. That’s what I want to tap into.
    -Above

    Often found hanging from power lines or melding with urban architecture, Above’s site specific stencils, paintings, and installations push past the traditional expectations of graffiti. The evolution of his name from text to a symbol inspired him to explore less conventional media, leading to his trademark wooden mobiles. Whether subtle or massive, his pieces retain an innate sense of beauty through their dialogue with the surrounding environment. Refusing to show his work in galleries, Above has instead “toured” through Europe and North and South America to get his work up. Watch the interview from “The Run Up,” available for the first time to the public for free, on Walrus TV.

    Art Radar - 11.12.09 - Michael Wolf & Barbara Crane - Aperture

    Michael Wolf: The Transparent City
    Chicago, like many of the world’s great urban centers, has recently undergone a surge in new construction, grafting a new layer of architectural experimentation onto those of past eras. Bringing his unique perspective on changing urban environments to a city renowned for its architecture, Michael Wolf chose to photograph Chicago’s central downtown area, focusing specifically on issues of voyeurism and the contemporary urban landscape in flux. His first body of work to address an American city, Michael Wolf: The Transparent City opened at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Columbia College Chicago (MoCP), in November 2008. The show at Aperture marks the second U.S. venue for the exhibition. The work, which is accompanied by a book of the same title copublished by Aperture and MoCP last fall, was created as part of the Chicago-based U.S. Equities Realty Artist-in-Residence Program, in collaboration with MoCP.

    Whereas Wolf’s prior series concentrated on the “architecture of density,” this most recent work invites the viewer to examine the transparency and fluidity of the new American cityscape. Juxtaposing humanizing details within the surrounding geometry of the urban landscape, fragments of everyday life—digitally distorted and hyper-enlarged—are snatched surreptitiously via telephoto lenses. Think Edward Hopper meets Blade Runner. In Michael Wolf: The Transparent City, Wolf’s work resonates with all the formalism of the constructed, architectural work for which he is known, and emphasizes his ongoing engagement with the idea of how modern life unfolds within the framework of the ever-growing contemporary city.

    Michael Wolf: The Transparent City

    Barbara Crane: Private Views

    Opening Reception:

    Thursday, November 12, 6:00-8:00pm

    Barbara Crane: Private Views
    In the early 1980s, photographer Barbara Crane embarked on a photographic project shot during Chicago’s various summer festivals. Armed with a Super Speed Graphic camera and Polaroid film, Crane waded in close to the revelers and focused on capturing the details of clothing and hairstyles, but most importantly, gesture. The images are tightly cropped and terrifically alive, viscerally bringing us into the crush of people eating, drinking, and enjoying the crowd dynamic—an incredible inventory of private gestures performed in public spaces.

    The collective effect of the images in Barbara Crane: Private Views is mesmerizing and intensely compelling, creating a palpable sensuality from image to image—an astonishing document, not of a particular event or personality, but of something far less tangible: the public expression of euphoria. Barbara Crane: Private Views is a celebration of the classic 1980s Polaroid snapshot with an experimental flair; Crane’s mixture of natural light and flash combined with her use of Polaroid film highlights the primary colors of ’80s fashion, which still feels hip and contemporary today.

    An accompanying book of the same title was published by Aperture in the spring 2009.

    Brooklyn native Jamel Shabazz’s images of 1980’s New York’s culture have made him an iconic contemporary photographer. He has been included in numerous publications, authored three monographs including the classic Back in the Days, and his photographs have been displayed in major cities throughout Europe and North America. In this feature, Ricky Powell films the opening reception of a Shabazz exhibition in New York.  Watch the interview from “Dithers,” available for the first time to the public for free, on Walrus TV.

    Jamel Shabazz has been documenting the ‘Urban Life’ for over 30 years. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY he picked up his first camera at the age of 15 and proceeded to record the world around him. Shabazz has drawn inspiration from the great James Van Der Zee, Gordon Parks, Robert Capa, Chester Higgins and Eli Reed.  He’s the author of 3 Monographs Back in the Days, The Last Sunday in June and A Time Before Crack, Jamel is presently working on his fourth book, entitled The 90’s.

    Jeremy Fish’s new exhibit “Weathering the Storm” opened at the Laguna Art Museum last weekend.  Juxtapoz Magazine was there to document the event and the art.

    From Sunday, November 8th to January 17, 2010, the Laguna Art Museum will feature a new installation by Jeremy Fish entitled, Weathering the Storm.

    This will be the first museum exhibition for Jeremy Fish. He will use Laguna Art Museum’s upstairs galleries to create an installation with symbols and characters that he has been developing over the last ten years.

    Weathering the Storm is a timely exhibition that is largely about transformation and rebirth through struggle. Deliberately drawing from our own current economic and political events and its impact on us socially and emotionally, Fish’s characters will reveal a narrative of evolution through struggle to obtain a more magnificent and resilient place. In this exhibition, Fish will create paintings with hand carved wood frames, three-dimensional figures for the gallery wall installation, and sculptures.

    Fish’s iconography generally consists of a fairy tale world inhabited by beavers, skulls, and birds which he has developed in part as a response to the influence that popular culture, cartooning, and literature like the Brothers Grimm, has had on him. Additionally, Fish created a limited edition print, Stormy Weather, for the Museum. Upper Playground will be releasing an exclusive tee featuring the Stormy Weather artwork shortly.

    For additional photos from this event and Fish’s work: view here.

    Remember a few  Art Radars ago when I had posted about ABOVE? Well, he is back in action!

    Well we got an email with a new video from ABOVE:

    “There are two sides to every coin, and we all know two wrongs don’t make a right but somehow when it comes to filming a video in reverse then  reversing it, makes total sense? Confused? Watch the video to get a better idea. If you still don’t understand, I can only suggest to try and watch it in reverse?!”

    The reverse side also has a reverse side. -Japanese proverb.

    Thank you!

    Art Radar: 11.05.09 - Prada

    It’s not every day that a contemporary perfume bottle makes earns a spot in one of the world’s top museums.  But the curators of the Musée d’Orsay’s new exhibition, Art Nouveau Revival, have selected Prada Parfums’ Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger as the design representation of the movement’s impact on current fashion culture. The perfume’s design is derived from Prada’s Fall/Winter 2003 collection that served as a deconstruction of a classic Art Nouveau wallpaper print. Prada’s pattern will be exhibited alongside work by artists like Man Ray, Salvador Dalí and Aubrey Beardsley. The show will be on display in Paris through February 4, 2010.
