Kinetic Drawing Machine
Based on the work of pioneering twentieth century artists like Jean Tinguely, Stephanie Lie has devised a mechatronic drawing machine that imperfectly mimics drawings she makes or programs on site. At the top of each hour, Lie will program the machine to begin a new drawing. Each drawing is made on one, long roll of paper, which slowly begins to pile up on the floor over the course of 24 hours. At the end of a full day of operation, the entire sheet of drawings will be pulled from Lie's device, temporarily displayed, and photographed.
The Quilt Conversation
The Quilt Conversation
will take place over ten weeks this summer. Artist Andrew Printer, with Ann Olsen, has organized two groups of quilters who will work at the Museum on Friday evenings to construct two quilts that recall the 1980’s. Inspired by major artworks that emerged during the AIDS crisis one group of quilters will consist of those who contributed to the original NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt in Washington, D.C. The second group will recall and historicize other themes of that decade, ranging from Paul Simon’s Graceland to the fall of the Berlin wall. Each group’s quilt making conversations will be recorded and that text will form the basis of a performance to be presented on the last evening of the Summer Salon Series 2012. In addition, the completed quilts will be formally presented and hung in the rotunda of the Museum on Fridays upon their completion until the final evening. The Quilt Conversation project will take place every Friday evening for two hours in the Upper Rotunda beginning June 15th.
The Yes Men
The duo of Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum have been creating interventions in the media and our daily lives for over a decade. Some of their most memorable works include the printing of 80,000 fake copies of the New York Times in 2008 that declared the end of the Iraq War, and the impersonation of a Dow Chemical Company spokesman on the BBC in 2004. Their activities have been chronicled in two films: The Yes Men (2003) and The Yes Men Fix the World (2009). During the first part of this week, The Yes Men have been in residence at Agitprop in North Park, conducting a workshop for local activist organizations on how to brainstorm creative, media-getting actions that broadcast their message.
The Third Party
Artist and Summer Salon Series Co-Curator David White will present The Third Party throughout the summer. This work consists of a mobile interview cart that can be relocated to any gallery in the Museum. White usually pre-selects individuals to join him on the cart for an interview, which always begins with a conversation on the work of art the cart happens to be parked in front of at that time; for this performance however, White will be accepting any individual from the public that wishes to be interviewed. The works and the guests are typically chosen in concert with one another, so that the work of art serves as an appropriate point of departure for the conversation with that particular guest. On this night then, works may very well be chosen by the guests as often as the artist. Each of these conversations will be videorecorded and posted online for future viewing.
Director Katherine Brook will present this cyclical play, in which a janitorial crew of Latina women clean up after four white, male workers in an office reminiscent of a Silicone Vallery start-up. The hour-long action folds back into itself, and repeats itself for four hours at a time. This marathon event will occupy both the lower and upper rotundas of the Museum. Playwright Liza Birkenmeier conceived the plot based on Dust Bowl era audio recordings of workers in California, essentially updating the voices of a bygone era to highlight labor issues that remain a part of our country today.
Turnbloom is the frontman of rising local band Mrs. Magician and will present an acoustic set for his Museum performance.
The Nervous Wreckords
Formed by Brian Karscig (Louis XIV), the Nervous Wreckords have been quickly gaining notoriety both among fans and other high-profile acts. Having toured with Weezer, Cee-Lo Green, Death Cab for Cutie, The Killers, and many other bands since 2010, the Nervous Wreckords are poised to release their second full album, Let Them All Talk.
Century of the Self
This film examines the impact of Freud's work on marketing and mass consumerism, tracing the development of the all-consuming self. Where does real power lie in a democracy? How are governments and businesses complicit in exploiting our subconsciouses? Originally this award-winning documentary aired as four separate, hour-long segments, but will be screened continuously for four straight hours at the Museum.
Bombshell Boom Boom
BOMBSHELL BOOM BOOM is your very own anti-venue marching sound collective, stemming out of the little known grassroots marching band movement happening world wide. BOMBSHELL is a DIY band encouraging anyone to join, creating a critical mass of people playing rhythms and textures on home-made instruments.
Parker & the Numberman
Parker and the Numberman formed in 2007, a project created by Jack King (Parker Edison) and Jamal Smith (aka, 1019 the Numberman). The duo became a critically acclaimed trio after the addition of Brandon Zamudio (aka, DJ Collagey), who discovered the group’s work on MySpace. The trio, who call Lemon Grove and Paradise Hills home, have garnered praise on the local scene for their intelligent socially and pop-culture relevant style. The trio released an EP, "Clockwork Slang," and contributed tracks to the Gondola mix tape for London-based arts magazine Art Wednesday. They were nominated again this year for their second San Diego Music Award for Best Hip-Hop.
