Indeed, We’ve made it to Show Three. This week we speak with Stephanie Heimann, co founder and co director of Fovea Exhibitions in Beacon, NY, and Lori Grinker whose photographs of displaced Iraqi refugees comprise the exhibit Nothing Like My Home: The Iraqi Refugee Crisis which is on view at Fovea through May 8th.
A panel discussion relating to the exhibit is scheduled at the gallery on April 9th at 4:30-6:30. Lori Grinker will be joined on the panel by Ali Rawaf, a 20 year old Iraqi refugee and currently a student at the University of Texas at Austin and Dr. Les Roberts, an epidemiologist who has led over 50 surveys in 17 countries, mostly measuring mortality in times of war. He is the author of the 2004 report estimating Iraqi civilians casualties at 100,000 Iraqi that drew ire from the Bush administration, who insisted it was much lower.
Matthew and Chris also interview a mysterious Mr. X who claims to be the Illustrious Mr. X whose life is the subject of the eponymously named exhibit curated by Greg Slick and Karlos Carcamo at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art in New Paltz, NY through July 17, 2011.
Here’ the rundown of this week’s show:
Dead Hare ‘Round the Bend – The erthlyngz
Matthew and Chris chat about the Koo Jeong A installation of two works at Dia:Beacon entitled A Reality Upgrade & End Alone (2003/2010) which are part of a group of works that constitute Koo Jeong A: Constellation Congress, and exhibit spanning three locations.
Vivian Jacobson‘s talk earlier in the week at SUNY New Paltz on Marc Chagall and the influential women in his life, followed by a panel discussion which included Jacobson, Rik Rydent, Gary Ferdman and Dorsky Curator Brian Wallace about the largely unknown two and a half years Chagall spent in High Falls, NY living with Virginia Haggard and creating prolifically. There is an effort afoot to raise support for a Chagall in the Hudson Valley exhibit to be held at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art . Expect more on this in the future.

Chelsea Streetscape – an audio tour of a handful of Chelsea Galleries. If you’ve ever been pocket dialed by someone’s cell phone, you’ll know what’s going on. …this is just better audio quality. This is captured audio from a round of gallery visits (including, but not limited to: Andrew Kreps, Matthew Marks, Pace, Mary Boone, Luhring Augustine, Barbara Gladstone, Freight and Volume….and certainly more) in Chelsea on March 19, 2011.
Chris wonders about photography, then introduces:
Audio Compression #1 – A 24 minute conversation reduced to just over 3 minutes via indiscriminate edits (arguably without sacrificing the spirit or content of said conversation.
