The Tournées Festival/Film Today: 'Mystéres de Lisbonne / Misterios de Lisboa / Mysteries of Lisbon' (Part 2)

March 1, 2013
Friday, March 1, 2013 - 4:00pm - 7:00pm

CalArts, Bijou Theater

'Mystéres de Lisbonne / Misterios de Lisboa
Mysteries of Lisbon' (Part 2)

Raúl Ruiz
2010 / 257 min.

There are two different parts to this film.  Part 1 will show on 2/22 and Part 2 on 3/1.

FILM/VIDEO: This majestic, magisterial film is based on a labyrinthine, three-volume 19th century Portuguese novel by Camilo Castilo Branco. Mysteries of Lisbon begins as the story of a 14-year-old boy’s, João, quest to discover his true origins, expands to include the reminiscences of legions.  Believing himself to be an orphan, João soon discovers that he’s the son of a countess. This revelation leads to several other connections and mysteries to be unraveled.

This event is part of The Tournées Festival, the weekly series of new French films on campus.

Support for the Tournées Festival is provided by:

  • Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States / Centre National de la Cinématographie et l’Image Animée
  • CampusFrance / Florence Gould Foundation / highbrow entertainment

'Blink': MFA2 Dance Thesis Concert - Choreography by Daniel Charon

March 1, 2013 - March 2, 2013
Friday, March 1, 2013 - 8:00pm
Saturday, March 2, 2013 - 7:00pm
Saturday, March 2, 2013 - 9:00pm

CalArts, Sharon Disney Lund Dance Theater

DANCE: Blink is a multi-media dance theater piece set in a world where time fractures, folds and unfolds for seven people navigating a warped and variable reality created by their discreet and interconnected stories. The disjointed moments of their lives, distorted in scale, hold the characters apart, bind them together, or confine them in their own minds. Weaving together images from dreams and memories, Blink uses live video projections, multi-source sound design and off-center, highly charged dancing to present a world where nonsense makes perfect sense, and time is a relentless driving force. Created in collaboration with Jaff Aaron Bryant, Christopher Heilman, David Moyer, Daniel Jackson and Dan Norman.

THEATER: The CalArts School of Theater invites you to attend the upcoming performances of Rabbit in the Blue, directed by Alexis Macnab (MFA Directing 2013) and written by Amanda Jane Shank (MFA Writing for Performance 2013). This vivid and intimate tale explores the mysterious reappearance of Daniel, a young man assumed lost by his family, in the lonesome fields surrounding his childhood home. While his parents and sister grapple with his sudden return, Daniel is haunted by his first love and the vanishing distinction between what is real and what is imagined.

In an effort to showcase the work of CalArts students to the greater Los Angeles community, this group of vibrant young artists is moving their new play downtown. Rabbit in the Blue will be presented downtown at the Broadway Civic Center (207 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90012).

'Lou Harrison: A World of Music' @ REDCAT

March 2, 2013
Saturday, March 2, 2013 - 8:30pm

REDCAT: A Los Angeles premiere screening celebrates American composer, artist, writer and activist Lou Harrison (1917–2003), who forged a new course for 20th-century music with hauntingly beautiful pieces using western, eastern, and custom-made instruments inspired by Javanese gamelan and the Chinese zheng. Directed by filmmaker and music producer Eva Soltes, the feature-length documentary Lou Harrison: A World of Music is drawn from over 25 years and 300 hours of performances, rehearsals and interviews conducted with Harrison, his contemporaries and his life partner William Colvig. This extraordinary film is preceded by a performance of Harrison’s Suite for Violin and American Gamelan (1973), demonstrating his signature use of Pacific Rim-inspired microtones, performed by violinist Mark Menzies and CalArts percussionists on “Old Granddad,” a gamelan built to Harrison’s specifications.

Queer Sex Works: Money Power Sex @ REDCAT

March 4, 2013
Monday, March 4, 2013 - 8:30pm

REDCAT: With a wide range of piercingly personal perspectives, this screening of experimental films made by queer artists explores a markedly different outlook about sex work. Be they strippers, hustlers, rent boys, go-go dancers, escorts, whores, pro-dommes, pornographers or rough trade, they do it for the money. Yet, unlike their straight counterparts, they are ”outsiders” in relation to the status quo. Sex work is a job with class, gender, race and power inequalities like any other, but with added social stigma, legal and, potentially, even physical danger. The program includes a reconstruction of the legendary A Fire in My Belly, A Work in Progress (1986–87) by David Wojnarowicz and The Fall of Communism as Seen in Gay Pornography (1998) by William E. Jones, among others. Read more

Paul Brach Lecture Series: Lesley Vance

March 7, 2013
Thursday, March 7, 2013 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

F200

ART: “Inspired by the seventeenth-century Spanish still-life tradition, Lesley Vance carefully arranges and lights objects such as fruits or shells. The artist then photographs these arrangements, and the resulting images serve as the basis for her abstract paintings. Vance creates these paintings by manipulating wet paint with a palette knife, erasing and editing her strokes until she feels that the final form has revealed itself. Although these works lack any perceptible trace of the original photographic composition, they retain the intimacy and refinement of a traditional still life.”

Kevin Jerome Everson 'Ten Five in the Grass' & other shorts @ REDCAT

March 9, 2013
Saturday, March 9, 2013 - 8:30pm

REDCAT: With six feature-length films and more than 70 shorts, Alpert Award recipient Kevin Jerome Everson has explored the multiple facets of African American life via a variety of formal approaches. Whether through his signature long shots, collage of archival sources or the re-enactment of fictional material that echoes the lives of his performers, Everson favors a strategy that interrupts the documentary impulse, abstracting everyday actions and statements into theatrical gestures. His work plays with the ambivalent relationships between art and narrative, fact and fiction. This screening includes a selection of shorts, from the Lumière-inspired Workers Leaving the Job Site (2013), to a dark, witty, homage to Chester Himes, Early Riser (2012), to an exploration of the world of black cowboys, Ten Five in the Grass (2012).

CalArts students of all disciplines are welcome to join the workshop. Interested students are required to RSVP with Annie Kim at annie@culturehub.org.

CultureHub: http://www.culturehub.org

My Work and Introduction to Flat, Articulated Puppets – Introduce body of work. Demonstrate how to make Flat, Articulated Puppets with materials provided to participating students. Film clips will be shown of this type of puppetry in animated films. Students will be instructed to complete the puppet with provided materials and create a new, original puppet and one accompanying Articulated prop for the second class.


Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Seeds of Story Telling – Participating student original puppet creations will be presented. Exercises using both the original puppet and new puppets. Students will “play” with the puppets towards Story Telling.

Leo F. Hobaica, Jr. began teaching in the Character Animation Program in 1996, with the administrative title of Assistant Director; in 2005, he was appointed Assistant Dean of the School of Film/Video, which is his present position. His teaching responsibilities within Character Animation include a primary focus in Color and Design I for first year students. Along with mentoring and independent studies with students across discipline lines, he also teaches Concept and Design in Animation (Color and Design II), Site Visit, and the annually alternating foreign travel classes, Art Appreciation: Paris, and Art Appreciation: Istanbul. He sits on the Academic Council as the elected Faculty Trustee to the Board of Trustees of the California Institute of the Arts, manages several CAP animation programs, and is an active member of the recently formed chapter of the AAUP at CalArts. External to CalArts, he is a board member of the alternative art's organization, NewTown/Pasadena.

His art practice includes the fabrication of sculptural objects, work in a mixed-media format, and temporary site-specific installations; he has completed several public art projects. Mr. Hobaica has collaborated with faculty from other departments at CalArts to produce interdisciplinary work, as well as projects with other international artists. His resume reflects a record of regional, national and international exhibitions; this record is mirrored in his teaching experience as well.

In 2005, he received a Fulbright Scholars’ Grant, and spent the Spring 2006 semester in Istanbul, Turkey, as a visiting professor at Istanbul Kultur University, and as a practicing artist. Other honors include: artist-in-residencies in France (2003, 1997), a public art commission for the city of Oakland, CA (1994-95), a Scaggs Foundation Grant (1987), and a California State Visiting Artists' Grant (1986).

Currently, she is at work on a feature-film & large-scale installation entitled Perpetual Peace that addresses US imperialism, militarization, globalization, and war in the Philippines. She is also revising a book entitled Vision in Ruins that explores visuality in an era of neoliberal globalization“

CalArts, Bijou Theater

FILM/VIDEO: 

EILEEN REYNOLDS

“Reynolds’ work playfully bridges notions of cultural boundaries by utilizing universal technologies and the human body. A Spencer Tunick of the animation world, her eye-catching films celebrate not only the process of working together towards a common goal, but also highlight the wonderful sense of tactility that comes from simple in-camera effects.”– Paul Khoo (Synchronicity Series, 2008)

    - 2006 - 3 min. a meditative stop motion performance in the Bisti Badlands of New Mexico
  • Hungama - The Laptop Project - 2009 - 1 min 41 sec - an ongoing collaborative project which started with the foreign workers community in Singapore.
  • Short clips from What Have I Done? - 5 min -2004 - the preliminary work which led to BIG BIO...
  • BIG BIO - 2011/12 -5 min -part one of an experimental stop motion trilogy, introducing the Biotechnological Madonna and a clay orphan she finds in the forest.

Eileen Anastasia Reynolds is an American artist and experimental animator whose studio practice involves painting, photography, performance, and animation. She often rotates from being actively outside working in the public sphere to spending months hibernating in the studio. Her recent public projects involve directing and choreographing site-specific animated performances, within various communities in Malaysia, Singapore, Bangladesh, and New Mexico. Her interest in public projects grew when she was a director of photography for Millennium Park’s Crown Fountains in Chicago.

When not in the public arena, Reynolds reverts to painting, drawing, sculpture, and animation. Her animations utilize stop motion techniques including pixilation, clay animation, and back-lit clay on glass. A recent piece, BIG BIO, is part one of a trilogy, which introduces the Biotechnological Madonna and Child and explores real and imagined reproductive technologies. Thematically, this trilogy investigates bioethics, modern day motherhood, and psychological power struggles within the human condition. BIG BIO was sponsored and supported by grants from The Hong Leong Foundation, The Substation Gallery, and The Embassy of the United States. Produced in Singapore.

Reynolds is a recipient of a variety of grants including two research grants from the Nanyang Technological University, the Paul Blankenship Memorial Grant for Emerging Artists, and an artist grant from the Embassy of the United States, Singapore. Exhibitions include the University of Malaysia Museum and Gallery, Post-Museum in Singapore, SITE: Santa Fe- Eighth International Biennale, “The Dissolve”, “One Night Stand”, Currents International New Media Festival, ISEA2012: Albuquerque: Machine Wilderness, Albuquerque Art Museum. Festivals include San Francisco Int’l Film Festival; Trickfilm International Film Festival, Stuttgart; Slamdance International Film Festival, Utah; Marfa International Film Festival, Marfa; Women in the Director’s Chair, Chicago; Lyon Asian Film Festival, France among others.

Permanence of the Theologico-Political? @ REDCAT

March 20, 2013
Wednesday, March 20, 2013 - 8:00pm

REDCAT: Political and social theorists Jean L. Cohen and Andrew Arato deliver lectures that critically examine the permanence of political theology in contemporary thought and institutions, in particular those associated with the legacy of Carl Schmitt. Together, these influential thinkers address the fact that positive reliance on political theology not only can have a profoundly authoritarian meaning, but could also be helpful in disguising and misrepresenting that meaning. The evening is introduced by CalArts’ Martín Plot and followed by a Q&A, with comments from Victoria Crespo of Morelos’ Universidad Autónoma and Enrique Peruzzotti of Universidad Torcuato Di Tella. Presented in conjunction with the Los Angeles release of Jean L. Cohen's Globalization and Sovereignty: Rethinking Legality, Legitimacy, and Constitutionalism (Cambridge) and Peruzzotti and Plot’s (eds.) Critical Theory and Democracy: Civil Society, Dictatorship, and Constitutionalism in Andrew Arato’s Democratic Theory (Routledge)Read more

Paul Brach Lecture Series: Jesal Kapadia

March 21, 2013
Thursday, March 21, 2013 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

F200

ART: Jesal Kapadia is an artist from Mumbai and a graduate of the Whitney Independent Study Program. She currently teaches at MIT in the department of Art Culture and Technology. Employing mediums such as the book, the archive and the photograph, as well as experimental film, video and performance, her work explores the potential forms of non-capitalist subjectivities. Her interests lie in an ethical praxis of being-in-common, and the cultivation of an awareness of art that is place-based, diversified, multiple, small-scale, cooperative and autonomous.

Over the last ten years, Jesal has collectively edited art for Rethinking Marxism (a journal of economics, culture and society) as well as organized and participated in events with members of 16beaver group (an artist community in downtown New York that functions as an open platform for discussion, critique and collaboration). She has taught and
developed a number of courses and seminars at various schools, including, the International Center for Photography, New School for Public Engagement, Cooper Union School
of Art, and Rhode Island School of Design. Her work in different classrooms and with the two collectives has further enabled her explorations into the fragile but dynamic exchange between art and organizing, art and social change, and art and pedagogy. She has exhibited her work both locally and internationally; most recent screenings, installations and workshops include the ‘And And And’ platform at Documenta 13 in Kassel, ‘Fiat: Experiments in Financial Semantics’ at the Neiman Gallery in Columbia University, ‘Prolonged Engagement’ at EFA Project Space in New York and ‘Art and Revolution’ at the U.S. Social Forum in Detroit.
