Toronto... Fado, working in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut Toronto, is pleased to present an artist talk and new performance work featuring Boris Nieslony, one of Germany's foremost performance artists.

Boris Nieslony creates unpredictable and unrepeatable improvisational performance works that manifest "an encounter and its effects". Responding to local circumstances, Nieslony develops images attuned to the moment, rigourously searching for the truth of self-recognition at the intersection of history and live presence. His impressive performance style stems from the motto "life is art enough."

The decision on how a performance will transpire is mostly made when the artist is already on stage. Nieslony describes his process: "One small bag filled with helpful objects and photos will accompany me and I will attend them. Even people and certain materials from a given environment can appeal to me as support for my ideas."

About Boris Nieslony

Born in 1945 in Cologne, Boris Nieslony has worked intensively as a performance artist, curator, archivist and independent scholar, staging various installations, interventions and artist projects since the 1970s. He is the founder of Black Market International, a performance group that meets regularly in various configurations to realize group performance projects, and ASA, a foundation for a self-organizing rhizomatic network of performance artists and theorists. Today, Boris Nieslony is recognized as one of the most prolific and significant contributors to performance art, presenting his work around the world.

Boris Nieslony's Canadian tour is a joint project of Fado Performance Inc., grunt Gallery (Vancouver), and Open Space (Victoria).

3. Fado news

As the fall season rushes past, Fado bids a fond farewell to Pessi Parviainen, who recently completed a 3-month internship with Fado. In addition to assisting at recent events, Pessi has been working on digitizing our archives. Visitors to our web pages (http://www.performanceart.ca) will notice that archival material stretching back to 1993, including photos, programmes, posters and press releases, can now be accessed from the site. Pessi scanned far more material than he was able to convert into web pages during his internship, so watch for more material to go online in the next few months.

Also coming online in the next few days will be material relating to our upcoming auction. Artists from around the world and throughout Fado's programming history have banded together to offer a truly remarkable set of items, including conceptual performances designed for individual bidders, that will hit the auction block on November 29. If you can't be at the auction, you can still register email bids up until 11:59 the night before, so make sure you don't miss out.

Fado is also pleased to host world-renowned artist Boris Nieslony on November 17 and 18. This visit was added on to Fado's busy schedule as a result of his visit to the Canadian west coast in conjunction with a Black Market performance as part of the LIVE performance art biennial.

Fall is also grant deadline time, and Fado has been busy putting together its programming schedule for 2004-05. Watch soon for calls for submission for two new upcoming Fado programmes -- the aural component of FIVE HOLES and IDea, a multi-year series that examined the role of identity in contemporary performance.

5. CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: Victoria Stanton intervention (Montreal)
Deadline: ASAP (Project Date: November 15, 2003); Source: artprojects@bankofvictoria.com

hello,

(welcome, or welcome back!)

back in the summer i sent out a call for participants for a series of
performance interventions i was to undertake in public places around the
city of montreal.

they have happened and all told, were quite a wonderful experience. thanks
once again to all those who took part!

the reason for this missive is that i would like to do an additional
performance action and once again require the participation of a group of
willing individuals. it is the 'restaurant performance' - take 2
(for those of who are already a bit familiar with this project).
more details are below

WHEN / WHERE:

date: Saturday November 15
meet time: approx. 1pm
start time: approx. 2pm
location: TBA - although it will be in a restaurant up in the plateau/mile
end area of montreal.

PRE-PERFORMANCE NOTES:

1) for this performance, i will welcome as many people as are interested in
taking part.

2) we will be doing the performance without the expressed permission of the
chosen establishment. for all intents and purposes we are 'regular'
customers going to their restaurant to eat.

3) if the location permits, i will have us all sitting as a large group
together at one table. this is my first choice, so i'm scoping for a place
that can accommodate this.

4) as such, i will call in the reservation for our group.

5) we will meet an hour before to do the following:
-say hello and introduce everyone to each other, after all, we'll be having
a meal together!
-to have a short yet succint discussion about the performance;
why i have chosen this location and what my intentions are...
which isn't too much more than
beyond what is written here.
however, i wanted to have the chance to chat with all of you there about it
in person, to provide a sense of a common or group intention and potential
performance actions
with each person's individual intention welcomed and talked about too.
then we'll make our way to the restaurant and have our meal.

PERFORMANCE NOTES:

this is something i haven't done with previous performances but i think it's
appropriate that i do so here...
i won't tell each of you exactly what to do but i will propose some ideas
here for you to think about, ie, how we will be eating in the restaurant.

basically, i am interested in the idea of pairs of us
feeding each other - not just a few bites, but throughout the entire meal.
each of you will have your own way of approaching this, i'm sure!
i'm not looking to make a mess, or be obnoxious... i'm interested in a
subtle yet focused way of paying attention to the food and to each other as
we deliberately feed forkful by forkful, morsel by morsel, the food that is
found on our plates, into each others mouths.

i'll leave you with that to contemplate and say more when we meet.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED:

**** please email your confirmation AS SOON AS POSSIBLE ****

FOR MORE INFO:

about this particular performance or more info in general - as i realize
some of you are new to this list -
feel free to contact me if you have any questions or whatnot.

FINAL NOTES:

unfortunately i have depleted my budget for the performances (i got a grant
last year to do this). i will not be able to offer an honorarium for your
participation this time around, nor will i be able to pay for your meal. but
i am not planning to go somewhere particularly expensive. i'm looking for a
place where there is enough of a variety that we can have a range of menue
prices too.

thanks for your time,
victoria stanton

6. CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: "Meditations in Orange" (email)
Deadline: November 17, 2003; Source: Devora Neumark

Please join me in creating a work that will be offered to the Montreal Sexual Assault Center as the first prize draw of their 2003 fund-raising raffle event.

This work, "Meditations in Orange" will emerge from the responses that I get to the following questions: "How do you define healthy sexuality?" Or to put it more bluntly, "What does healthy fucking mean to you?" "How do you like to be touched?" "How do you like to touch others?" "What is healthy intimacy?" I see these questions and the answers that I will gather as related to the second chakra, the energy center for intimacy and sexuality. The color associated with this energy center is orange.

The answers that I receive by November 17, 2003 will be transcribed onto paper with orange ink, layering word over word, sentence over sentence to achieve an overall color field effect in orange charged with meditations on healthy sexuality. The final artwork (approximately 24" x 24") will be a visibly vibrant, embodied and mindful (though not legible) testimony to the power of healthy sexuality and appropriate intimate connections.

In addition, I will be posting some responses to my website (www.devoraneumark.com) in the "works" section under the heading of "meditations in orange." Please indicate whether or not you would like your words posted and whether or not you would like your name to be mentioned.

As some of you know, involving participants in collaborative co-creative processes is the way I like to work most. Having been given the honor by the MSAC to produce a work that I donate in support of their center, I am pleased to extend this wonderful opportunity to reflect on healthy sexuality. This is especially relevant as the Center's work is focused on dealing with the abuse of healthy expressions of intimacy. I am motivated by the trust that creative practice is transformative and healing for individuals and society. Imaging healthy sexuality matters. It matters because it has significance and because the significance will be made manifest in a physical form. It matters because the people who will take even a few moments to consider this question and their reply will articulate something they are already living or vision something that they may have yet to realize. In either case, this rendering of consciousness is the aim of the invitational process.

I am grateful for the support of the Canada Council's Inter-Arts Office that has helped make this project possible.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

11. NEWS: INFEST: INTERNATIONAL ARTIST RUN CULTURE (Vancouver)
February 25 - 29, 2004; Source: INFEST

We are pleased to announce the launch of the InFest website.

<http://www.paarc.ca/infest>www.paarc.ca/infest

In acknowledgement of the influential role that Artist Run Centres play in the development of contemporary art, the Pacific Association of Artist Run Centres is hosting InFest: International Artist Run Culture from February 25 &Mac246;29, 2004. This multi-faceted event will include exhibitions and performances, discussion forums, a networking session, Artist Run Centre Presentations, public education programs, and social events. InFest will be the largest gathering in North America of representatives from international Artist Run Centres.

Canada has a thirty year history of Artist Run Centre activity and is home to more than one hundred centres from coast to coast, but the past five years have seen a boom around the world in countries as varied as Korea, Honduras, Thailand, Argentina, South Africa, and Hong Kong. With different mandates, structures and funding sources, the term Artist Run Centre eludes clear definition and will be one of the topics of discussion at InFest. Others include Funding and Artist Run Centres, Writing and Criticism in Artist Run Culture, Internationalism and International Exchange, and the Artist as Curator. Thirty speakers and presenters will be brought to Vancouver from cities such as Montréal, Toronto, London, Seoul, Stockholm, New York, San Francisco, Johannesburg, Hong Kong, Buenos Aires and Guadalajara.

The focus of InFest will be on exchanging ideas and strategies to advance artist run culture, generating a sense of community that transcends national borders, and encouraging international collaborations. The goal of InFest is to strengthen the presence of Artist Run Centres within the cultural ecology and public imagination. Artist Run Centres have provided a foundation for many artists to develop their practice and it is time for them to receive their due attention.

13. EVENT:LIVE Biennial of performance art (Vancouver)
October 18 - November 29, 2003; Source: LIVE

LIVE is a Biennial of performance art now in itsthird installment. LIVE 2003 OCTOBER 18th - NOVEMBER 29th is larger than both its predecessors, a collaboration between 24 art galleries and organizations involving 46 performances over a six week period.

This year's highlights include:

This years festival is from with the theme "Performance Art and the Academy" and includes a highly anticipated lecture by academic Kristine Stiles. Her topic of discussion is "Props for the Memory and Doing Wrong in the Work of Joseph Beuys". Stiles suggests that Beuys used his art as "a prop for
the memory" of the Third Reich.

The Biennial Launch After Party will be hosted by the Western Front and feature a performance by local artist Paul Wong.

International Artists include Andre Stitt, and 3 members of Black Market International, Boris Nieslony, Roi Vaara and Alastair MacLennan.

We are also excited about CHIASMA, our 3-day live internet exchange being transmitted from performances in Vancouver, Lancaster U.K. and Sydney, Australia.

As well as platform based performances, we have site-specific and non-specific work. Lori Weidenhammer&Mac226;s "100 Housewives" is a storefront performance in a Thrift Store complete with costumes, wigs and make-up.

Four members of Regina's One Night Only will take over the SFU Bartlett space for a week without disruptions as they create a site-specific installation inspired from the neighborhood, the gallery's architecture and local life.

Dinka Pignon's real guests dine with virtual ones in an intimate and eerie experience at Video In.

Radix Theatre's project sounds like an accident waiting to happen. A car with no driver will circle audience members with a backdrop of light, smoke, live music and performance.

Both the Helen Pitt and Access Gallery will be showcasing younger emerging artists that have already gained notoriety while still attending art school.

We are also pleased to announce our closing reception will be a performance by international star Rodney Graham and his band.

15. EVENT: "Mono Logical" Video, Film & Performance by Andrew J. Paterson (Toronto)
November 15, 2003; Source: Instant Coffee

Mono Logical
Video, Film & Performance by Andrew J. Paterson
Saturday, November 15, 8pm $5
@ Latvian House, 491 College St. ph. 416-656-5577
A co-presentation with
Pleasure Dome and 7a*11d

Pleasure Dome and 7a*11d are thrilled to present a performance by the legendary Downtown artist Andrew James Paterson. Comprising film, video, and live monologues, Mono Logical consists of clips from Paterson’s narrative and performance-based video works from the early 80s up until the early 90s, in tandem with his new shorter digital media works and his recent super 8 tone poems. Mono Logical’s trajectory begins with Paterson’s infamous “New Wave” band The Government. It will include excerpts from such works as his pop-mockumentary Immortality, his paranoid language-thriller Who Killed Professor Wordsworth?, and the split-frame art-bureaucratic Socratic dialogue Controlled Environments. The collaged program will also highlight recent short works like The Walking Philosopher, Snowjob, and The Headmaster’s Ritual — tapes and super 8 films combining photographic tracking shots, montages of mediated found images, and voice-over discourses concerning urban space, global economics, and sexual possibilities.

These performative dispatches contain their own various logics, and audiences will be encouraged to make their own associations and perhaps even draw their own conclusions. Mono Logical promises to throw curveballs and suggest parallel U-turns. Paterson will of course be present and available for creative interrogation after the program.

Andrew James Paterson is an interdisciplinary artist working with performance, video and film, musical composition and critical and fictional writing. His video and performance work has been exhibited and performed nationally and internationally since the early 80s. He has also curated media art programs for A Space Gallery, Mercer Union, Cinematheque Ontario, Pleasure Dome, and YYZ Artists' Outlet and has written on media art and cultural politics for numerous journals and magazines. He is currently co-editing, with Sally McKay, an anthology of essays and artists' pieces concerning state and public funding titled ?Money, Value, and Art? for YYZ Books.
