1. EVENT: The Art of Encounter with Black Market International
Date: April 30-May 5, 2012; City: Belfast; Source: Bbeyond
 
Bbeyond presents The Art of Encounter with Black Market International
 
Supported by The National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland in conjunction with Queen’s University and the Belfast Festival’s 50th Anniversary celebrations.
 
 
On the occasion of Bbeyond’s 10th anniversary of continuous activities promoting performance art in Northern Ireland, we present a major event that crystallises principles that have held our philosophical and practical commitment to performance art. Bbeyond has made performance art a field of ‘encounter’ in which human acts and behaviour can find a creative, free expression, as well as engagement with social concerns in Northern Ireland, enlarging its participations, collaborations and cultural exchanges in an international context.
 
The Art of Encounter is the expression of an active awareness of the effects of human acts in the context of an unavoidable relational nature in the world. Aware of this, performance artists find a laboratory of encounter, creativity, observation and reflection in human interlinks.
 
For more than thirty years, Boris Nieslony, one of BMI founders, has researched, reflected on and experimented with one of the most universal concerns for humankind: the nature of human relationships and how performance art has developed, consciously or unconsciously, ways to approach this human ‘condition’. Black Market International is the 
clear expression of this concern… and the development of ideas around a meta-utopia of free human expression and harmony, in collaboration with all performance artists who have joined this laboratory of Encounter.
 
The 10th Anniversary of Bbeyond coincides with the 25th anniversary of the existence of BMI, in which Alastair MacLennan, one of the most prestigious performance artists in Northern Ireland and Europe, has collaborated for more than 20 years. In this way, we would want to honour his long commitment and his revealing and inspirational work. 
Thus, Bbeyond will make a triple celebration as initiation for future challenges in the development of performance art in this country.
 
Black Market International is a performance art entity formed by 12 artists from different countries: Germany, Switzerland, N Ireland, Mexico, Canada, Singapore, Finland, Holland and Italy. This variety forms a ‘rich’ spectrum of performance art tendencies and concepts. 
 
Activities include:
-2 workshops delivered by Jürgen Fritz and Dr Helge Meyer, both members of BMI. Including presentation of works by the participants.
-Solo performances by the 9 members of BMI and 8 local artists.
-BMI performance, 6 hours duration, from 12 noon, Sat 5th May, in Elmwood Hall, Queen’s University, with 3 artists as BMI guests.
-4 artist talks, Jürgen Fritz on BMI from Boris Nieslony, Alastair MacLennan and Dr Helge Meyer.
-Round table with BMI chaired by Nikki Milican.
 
Curated by Elvira Santamaría Torres and Alastair MacLennan. Coordinator Brian Patterson

TICKETS: 416-975-8555
 
Legendary New York performance group Split Britches offer up a tribute to what we have lost in the rising sea of urban gentrification. Lost Lounge is a refuge for a culture that sits on the edge of extinction. Through loving recreations of seminal lounge acts from the glory days of NYC's Bowery Corridor, Lost Lounge resurrects the people and places that are quickly fading into a black and white memory. Since 1980, Split Britches has transformed the landscape of queer performance with their vaudevillian satirical gender-bending performances. Buddies is thrilled to welcome this internationally-acclaimed feminist company to our stage for the first time.

A strange looking woman is sliding onto the stage wearing a cheerleader’s uniform and shouting cheers for herself. In the gallery people are discussing their relationship to different kinds of machines and devices. A man dressed up as a triangle is playing an electric piano. Two people stand under the light of two sunlamps and whisper love stories into the ears of passers-by. Where does our notion of freedom evolve from and how is it acted out in performance art?

Lee Wen: Lucid Dreams in the Reverie of the Real
Runs through 10 June 2012 at Singapore Art Museum
 
Lucid Dreams in the Reverie of the Real is an exhibition of works by Lee Wen, a multidisciplinary artist and one of Singapore's most internationally recognised contemporary artists. His earliest known work, a book with texts and drawings entitled A Waking Dream (1981), preceded the manga generation of today. It also showed evidence of his inclination in using dreams, metaphor and myth-making to manifest a narrative of our perception of life and reality.
 
Best known for his Yellow Man series of works, Lee is also one of the pioneers of performance art in Singapore. Through various constructed persona, his works allow visitors an insight into the artist and provocateur, whose very being is motivated by a strong conviction of justice and idealism, with a persistence to stay true to the self in a highly 
structured world.
 
This exhibition presents key works spanning two-and-a-half decades alongside two new works. Lee will also perform live during selected exhibition periods and talk about his experiences and development as an artist, covering subjects such as memories and myth-making. Exhibition runs through 10 June 2012.

International Art Festival „Interakcje” is the most important periodical project organized in Poland, presenting fields of art like performance, happening, actionisms, conceptualism as one of most daring art disciplines practices widely know as “live art”. “Interakcje” is a festival of 13 years’ old tradition, one of the oldest consistently build periodical projects in the world. “Interakcje” are showing both phenomena already known and recognized of contemporary “live art” (mainly performance) as also new art searching, which we can not clearly qualify to defined fields of art. Among those who are invited we can find so called classics who had begun their career in the sixties and seventies and also young artists yet unbeknownst to the wider audience. For the young artists the festival is a wonderful occasion to confront their experiences with experiences of older veteran artists. In previous festivals presented about 250 artists form more than 30 countries world-wide.

11. EVENT: Sonnets in the Sand by AK Mimi Allin
Date: May 9, 2012; City: Washington, USA; Source: AK Mimi Allin
 
SONNETS IN THE SAND
 
In a celebration of love and an act of giving and letting go, conceptual artist A K Mimi Allin is scribing Shakespeare's Sonnets (all 154 of them) into the sand at low tide along six miles of sand beach on the Pacific coast of Washington State. Project begins Wednesday 9 May 2012 and continues until all sonnets are scribed (1-2 weeks). Sonneteers of all 
ages wanted to help scribe. Choose a sonnet, find a section of beach and work at yourown pace. Camp at night with the artist at Kalaloch Beach Campground (right above the beach on a bluff) or stay at nearby Kalaloch Lodge. Join for a few days or stay for a week. Nightly bonfires and poetic camaraderie.
 
There is an old Zen story about teacups and emptiness and how we cannot be filled until we are empty. SONNETS IN THE SAND is about emptying ourselves so we can return, as pilgrims, to the New World, open to the new experiences before us. Once we've honored and let go of Shakespeare, we'll be better able to honor the native lands and cultures. 
To mark this subtle, internal shift, the artist will fast from sundown to sunrise on the last day of scribing and sit a silent meditation. It is hoped a personal journey ensues from this work for all scribes.
 
Subsequent to her time on the coast, the artist will have her hair cut (publicly) as a show of grief. The artist hopes to embody and make real the quiet national apology to Native Americans signed by President Barack Obama in 2009. She will then spend the next 3 months (June-August) recording her healing process as her hair grows back. Much much 
more public apologies have been issued to native peoples in Canada and Australia, but the question remains for ordinary citizens--How can I grieve and heal? How can I find my path again? Serious partner artists living nationally and internationally sought to join in and have their hair cut as a show of grief for the acts of our ancestors against our 
native peoples. Contact the artist to participate. This work is dedicated to the artist's brother Richard C. Allin, Jr.

14. EVENT: If I Were a Monument – Performance by Louise Liliefeldt
Date: May 12, 2012; City: Toronto, Canada; Source: Mayworks
 
If I Were a Monument
Exhibition and performance by Louise Liliefeldt
Exhibition: May 12 - June 2
Opening Reception and Performance: Saturday May 12, 8 pm, Free
Toronto Free Gallery, 1277 Bloor Street West , Toronto
 
“If I Were a Monument” is an exhibition by renowned artist Louise Liliefeldt. The exhibition consists of paintings and installations that deal with the issue of loneliness. The images Liliefeldt creates are born from a very personal place, as dementia and caregiving have been part of her immediate family, perhaps exaggerating the solitude of both the 
person who has dementia and the caregiver. The images surrounding the walls of the gallery represent images of what loneliness would feel like if she were a monument erected to honor the lives of others.
 
The performance work presented at the opening is also inspired by the notion of the feeling of being solitary, without companionship, or isolated. Her actions also speak to memory, questioning how lonely we are at any given time. 
 
Presented as a part of Mayworks Festival. Co-sponsored by Toronto Free Gallery.

16. WORKSHOP: Re-expagorathinksperformanceart.agoracollective.org/eriencing Performance: Documentation to Representation
Dates: May 23-25, 2012; City: Berlin: Source: Jasmin Schaitl
 
Re-experiencing Performance: From Documentation to Representation is a workshop which will be held in Berlin from 23rd to 25th of May by Jasmin Schaitl (http://www.jasminschaitl.com)
 
This workshop tackles the use and the meaning of the documentation of performance art. It questions how to re-present a performance by using documentation taken from it. The conflict of performance art – between ephemerality and historiography – points out the challenge and at the same time, the necessity of performance documentation.

19. EVENT: Kaufrausch - Norbert Klassen & Jürgen O. Olbrich
Date: May 30-31, 2012; City: Bern, Switzerland; Source: Jürgen Olbrich/Helge Meyer
 
Norbert Klassen & Jürgen O. Olbrich’s last collaborative performance without Norbert
 
May 3-31, 2012
16 – 21.00
PROGR/Atelier (Studio) N. Klassen
Waisenhausplatz 30
CH-3001 Bern
 
Norbert Klassen (born 1941) died in December 2011 in Bern. He lived there since the 60s and was highly influential in the art scene there as a teacher and artist, and especially as performance artist.
 
Norbert Klassen worked together with Jürgen O. Olbrich (born 1955) for 15  years on their long-term project “Achse Kassel – Bern / 2x Provinz“ (“Axis Kassel-Berne/2xProvince”), which produced a substantial amount of magazines and many editions were produced. At the same time, they discussed their connection to collecting, problems of preserving, 
systems of order, categories, etc. Sometimes artistic solutions appeared from these discussions.
 
The performance, “Kaufrausch“ was presented in 2004 and 2005 for three days in Stadtgalerie/Berne and in Kunsthaus/Grenchen. A last huge performance was planned together with Norbert Klassen in his studio in Bern for next year. Because of Norbert’s death, this will now happen without him (normally he would be there, sitting in his 
green armchair) but in respect of him on his birthday, the performance will be presented in his absence. 
 
His whole estate will be dedicated as performance material. It will appear in his studio and the visitors are able to buy it: Collected material, used material, originals, editions, art from others, unused stuff, etc. You will be able to see and buy: real performance material from a real performer and his friends; and the material of “Kaufrausch” (buying frenzy) is material from former performances. The visitors decide the prices. Come, see, marvel, buy! The best from the archives. We help you individually.
 
Performer: Janet Haufler, Peter Jecklin, Stefan Kurt, Manuela Trapp, Peter Zumstein, Jürgen O. Olbrich, Norbert Klassen (absent)

This 5-day intensive workshop is geared to artists who are interested in an exploration of performance art and the creative process, regardless of participants’ usual discipline.

Participants will use bodies, objects and sites as malleable material that they will construct, expand, invert, reinvent and rediscover within performance actions. The workshop will confront the performative gesture from several angles: within the unfolding moment, as a context 
specific relationship, and as a sensorial image. Notions of presence and invisibility will be explored through live and camera-based actions. Hands-on exercises, thematic discussions, and individual coaching will support the creation of these live works within the setting of Toronto Island. Each day of the workshop will explore different themes that will build upon each other towards a public presentation of participant's work at the workshop's conclusion, Saturday August 4th.
 
Montreal multi-disciplinary artist Rachel Echenberg has been making performance-based work for twenty years. She is continually interested in possibilities for active empathy and how distance and proximity affect exchange with audience and surroundings within the performative act. Her work has been performed, screened and exhibited since 1992 across Canada as well as internationally in Chile, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Morocco, Northern Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland and the United States. http://rachelechenberg.net
 
GENERAL INFORMATION
As there are no bedrooms available at Artscape Gibraltar Point for this time period and the facilities at the residency will be restricted to those staying on the Island, participants should bring their own food to the Island each day. Using a bicycle to get on and off the Island is also highly recommended.
