Miguel Gutierrez, a 2010 Guggenheim Fellow in choreography, lives in Brooklyn and makes performances. He is currently created a series of queer pieces in three parts called Age & Beauty. Part 1 premiered in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, Part 2 premiered in American Realness 2015, and Part 3 will premiere at the Fisher Center for the Arts at Bard College in September 2015. Other recent work includes Storing the Winter (with Mind Over Mirrors), And lose the name of action, and HEAVENS WHAT HAVE I DONE. His work is presented frequently in NYC, across the country and internationally at venues and festivals such as the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Dance Theater Workshop, On the Boards In Seattle, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, TBA/PICA in Portland, Pompidou Centre in Paris, ImPuls Tanz in Vienna and many others. He has been an artist-in-residence at Bard’s Fisher Center, MANCC, LMCC and CCN Montpellier. He has received fellowships from from Foundation for Contemporary Art, United States Artists, Lambent Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts and support from MAP Fund, National Dance Project, National Performance Network, Jerome Foundation and Creative Capital. He has created commissions for BalletLab in Melbourne, The Fondue Set in Sydney, Movement Forum in Salt Lake City, and Fauxnique in San Francisco. He has choreographed music videos for Diane Cluck, Holcombe Waller and Le Tigre, has released an EP as The Belleville, has performed frequently at Joe’s Pub and has sung with Antony and the Johnsons, Justin Vivian Bond, Nick Hallett and My Robot Friend. He teaches at Hollins University and Movement Research. His book WHEN YOU RISE UP is available from 53rd State Press and he maintains a blog at Stargayze.com. His work is discussed in Jenn Joy’s recent book The Choreographic. He invented the absurdist workout DEEP AEROBICS, most recently used to warm up audiences for The Knife’s tour, and he is training to become a Feldenkrais Method practitioner. He studies singing with Barbara Maier.
Anna Betbeze's work approaches painting with rigorous and alchemical experimentation that index action in relation to sensation and pleasure. Her most notable body of work to date engages wool flokati carpets as a ground for color saturation, physical distress, and natural processes to manipulate the surface. The shaggy reliefs hover between the visceral and the pictorial,painting and sculpture, and locate paradoxes such as the simultaneity of beauty and abjection.
Betbeze was born in 1980, grew up in Columbus, GA and currently lives and works in New York, NY. Betbeze has held solo exhibitions at Kate Werble Gallery, New York, NY; Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, North Adams, MA; University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA Lüttgenmeijer, Berlin, DE; and François Ghebaly Gallery, Los Angeles, CA. Her work has been exhibited at venues including Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris, FR; Power Station of Art, Shanghai, CN; MoMA PS1, Long Island City, NY; Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, Itahaca NY; Galerie Perrotin, Paris, FR; Mitchell-Innes & Nash, New York, NY; Tonya Bonakdar Gallery, New York, NY; and Ramiken Crucible, New York, NY.
Betbeze is a recipient of the 2013-2014 Rome Prize and is Senior Critic at Yale University School of Art.
Jacolby Satterwhite's video works bring together 3-D animation, drawings, and live performance to construct utopian digital worlds. Within this uncharted digital architecture, Satterwhite explores personal history, identity and memory. Satterwhite often incorporates personal sources such as his mother's drawings, which he hand-traces and imports into 3D animation programs to build lush, computer-generated landscapes. Into these digital realms he inserts multiple elaborately costumed avatars, whose kinetic gestures compose a sensual physical choreography. Fusing pop culture, subculture, and art history in his video work and performance, Satterwhite creates visually dazzling tableaux that reflect the changing spatial and bodily anxieties and desires of the digital world. Satterwhite's computer-generated realms densely layered with proliferating drawings, objects and performances encompass animated narratives of personal memory and identity.
Jacques Servin is an internationally known media artist and writer, and co-founder and co-director of the Yes Men and the Yes Lab. His last position was as Visiting Associate Arts Professor at NYU, where he also directs the Critical Tactics Lab. Servin is the author of two collections of short stories, and has published numerous articles and stories internationally; his software art pieces have been featured in numerous exhibitions. As Andy Bichlbaum of the Yes Men, he has starred in the documentary hit The Yes Men, and co-wrote, co-directed, co-produced, and co-starred in the award-winning feature documentaries The Yes Men Fix the World and The Yes Men Are Revolting (debuting theatrically at IFC on June 9). Servin’s individual and collective work with the Yes Men has appeared in the Whitney Biennial, the Venice Biennale, ARS Electronica, and many other art venues. In 2013, Servin designed and co-launched the Action Switchboard, a platform to facilitate creative activist projects worldwide.
Rashaad Newsome’s work is hinged on the sampling and the recontextualizing of contemporary cultural elements in traditional frameworks. Using the equalizing force of sampling, he crafts compositions that frequently surprise in their associative potential and walk the tightrope between identity politics and abstraction. Newsome’s collages, videos, sculptures, performances, and sound pieces work to oppose cultural essentialisms. They lead us into a realm of uncertainty, in which the symbols presented lose significance, but are nonetheless made comprehensible. Newsome earned his BFA from Tulane University in his native New Orleans, Louisiana. He participated in the 2010 Whitney Biennial, Greater NY 2010, Performa 2011, and the 2011 Venice Biennale. Newsome has exhibited at The Drawing Center, New York, NY; MoMA PS1, New York, NY; The New Museum, New York, NY; The Studio Museum in Harlem, NY; the New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans, Louisiana; and the Centre Pompidou, Paris, France. His work is included in such public collections as the Brooklyn Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. He has been the recipient of such awards and residencies as The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award, New York, NY; The Headlands Center for the Arts, Sausalito, California; and the McColl Center for Visual Art, Charlotte, North Carolina, among others.
Xavier Cha’s performance-based work revolves around modes of accessibility, exchange, and hierarchies of space and perception. Collaboration is often at play in her performances: Xavier has invited actors, dancers, musicians, programmers, cults, and clowns, among many other non-artist performers, to not only participate in her projects, but also to become protagonists in the work. Through these events, Cha formalizes subjectivity within contemporary culture, isolating elements of production, perception and communication into bare, abstract and often illogical experience. In stripping away extraneous content, Xavier reveals phantasmic qualities of consumption, trends, and cultural engagement. Her work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the New Museum, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, de la Cruz Collection Contemporary Art Space, The Kitchen, Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art (UK), the Sculpture Center, Asia Society Museum, and the Hammer Museum, among other galleries and museums throughout the United States and Europe.
