Title: Artists and Critics
Description: What do artists want from critics? Barbara Zucker answered for us all: "I want them to be my fairy godmother, champion my career, say I'm a genius, and stand behind me unequivocally." Although she and others went on to discuss the importance of dialog and the wonderful insights that artists might derive from criticism of their work, nothing rang as true as these opening remarks. Criticism may be literature, may even be "an art form," as Jeff Perrone insisted, but for artists, criticism is chiefly survival. Good reviews mean sales, jobs, grants, and more shows. Bad reviews or no reviews mean oblivion.

Title: Post-Modernism
Description: In post-modernism, or New Wave . . . you take an attitude about an art-making process. If you take an attitude that would be pertinent to conceptual art, and then apply that back to a very traditional, standard, formal art product -- painting, sculpture, film or records -- then you may be engaging in a post-modern activity. . . . You treat a formal art product as if it were conceptual art, the same way one takes a progressive rock-and-roll mentality and applies it to the most simple and traditional music forms. [But] if you do to art what punk rock did to music, that art will be anything but punk, because you're dealing with the structure of the art world, which is real different. So I took people [for this panel] who are not post-modernists necessarily, but were involved in the avant-garde before this stuff happened. And when it happened they got into the forefront. Original thinkers. This is all a function of people saying, "There's nothing new, there can never be anything new."

Title: How has the ?Digital Revolution? altered the domains of printmaking and photography?
Subtitle: Will they survive as distinct fine art media?
Description: The "Digital Revolution" challenges the entire production and nature of images. Photography and printmaking bear the brunt of change and challenge because of their very nature: flat, 2-D, reproducible. We have all adjusted by now but to what precisely? What are the challenges, the adjustments and changes? By, to and for whom? What is the impact on artists, academic art departments, curators and collectors? Will printmaking and photography even survive as distinct art media? Are they co-mingling into a new media called 2D digital imaging? If so, what are the standards, if any, among artists who work in digital printmaking and photography, in art schools, and for those who curate and collect? Are there uniform standards? Does this new emergence affect past standards and structures as well as the future of art objects and the ways we approach them? The panel is composed of representatives from each area of expertise and artists from both traditional and digital media.

Title: Globalization and the Artist
Description: The panel discussion will discuss how globalization works on two levels: cultural and economic. Hypothetically, the first addresses art as a manifestation of basic human interests, while the second promotes corporate interests mixed with political allegiances. Artists tend to see the world as "large" from the inside out, whereas corporate interests see the world as "small" from the outside in. This suggests a fundamental conflict in terms of communication. Often artists are put in a position of having to conform to business interests that are outside of their intentions and threatening to their survival. The terms of art quickly become the terms of a global economic exchange, thus displacing the content of art away from addressing concerns of identity, well-being, and a restructured quality of life.

Description: New York based Brazilian and German artist, "Janaina Tsch?pe shares her forename with a Brazilian water goddess, and, not coincidentally, her photographs and performances-to-video feature sumptuously organic, watery, distorted female figures," writes Frieze.

Title: Discourse and Practice:
Subtitle: Aporias of Perfection
Description: ?No good work whatever can be perfect, and the demand for perfection is always a sign of a misunderstanding of the ends of art.? (John Ruskin) This panel attempts to examine the idea of ?perfection? as it is embraced or rejected in the practice of contemporary artists. The topic is related to technical skill and craft versus a deliberate renunciation of these. The artwork as a contained entity with a distinguishable form has been questioned since the inception of Modernism. The failure or plain impossibility of either an artistic or philosophical endeavor to get closer to the idea itself in both visual and spiritual terms is alluded to by the term ?aporia? in the title for the panel. In order to provide a creative opposition of terms, the moderation is based on the contrast of ?perfection? and ?deskilling?. This panel also asks when the turn happened from where attitudes become form (Harald Szeemann, 1969) to where forms become attitudes (Massimiliano Gioni, 2009).

Title: Past Dreams and Future Visions:
Subtitle: The South Bronx art scene in the 21st Century
Description: The Bronx art scene has emerged, submerged and changed many times over the last 30 years. Each time it has been a model for coordinated community artistic efforts ripe with great art, beauty and expression and not surprisingly coupled with the infighting and rivalries associated with any family. Past dreams and future visions exemplified by select consortium of artists, alongside with what makes an art scene grow, coalesce, dissolve and survive. An effort will be made to reveal the general aesthetic trends that have come from this often forgotten Borough of New York. The Moderator, Barry Kostrinsky, is Founder of Haven Arts, a Municipal Arts Society's recipient of a certificate of merit in 2006. Barry is an artist, curator, collector and supporter of the South Bronx arts scene.

Title: Artist in Conversation: Robert Lazzarini
Description: Robert Lazzarini, who exhibits with Deitch Projects in New York, and whose work was recently presented at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, challenges normative perspective and perception via pictorial distortion and reconfiguration which demands for the spectator to reexamine their notion of spatial potentiality, and the shift of meaning that occurs with all objects through the experience, often violent, and decay thrusted upon them. Not surprisingly, The New York Times recently wrote, "one of America?s most exciting young artists." Robert Lazzarini will give a presentation based on his work, followed by a conversation with Peter Duhon, and Q&A with audience.

Title: Keren Cytter
Subtitle: Videos
Description: 'Keren Cytter's videos have a distinctly literary flavour. Although her medium is tape and she makes countless references to cinematic and televised forms, her scripts often involve long soliloquies and multiple voice-overs that would seem more comfortable unravelling over the pages of a novel. The subject matter of her work is the stuff of relationships ? loss, loving, longing, friendship, betrayal ? much of it culled from her own or her friends' lives.' - frieze.com Keren Cytter has had solo exhibitions at CCA Center for Contemporary Art, Kitakyushu (2009), Witte de With, Rotterdam (2008), and MUMOK, Vienna (2007). Her work was included in the New Museum's landmark exhibition The Generational: Younger Than Jesus, and the 53rd Venice Biennale curated by Daniel Birnbaum. Conversation will ensue after artist talk with ATOA's Director of Programming, Peter Duhon, followed by questions and answer session with audience.

Highlights from Nemec's '96 ATOA interview of Spero will be shown, and special guests and audience members will be invited to share their stories & memories of Nancy. "Spero was a pioneer of feminist art. Her work since the 1960s is an unapologetic statement against the pervasive abuse of power, Western privilege, and male dominance. Executed with a raw intensity on paper and in ephemeral installations, her work often draws its imagery and subject matter from current and historical events such as the torture of women in Nicaragua, the extermination of Jews in the Holocaust, and the atrocities of the Vietnam War."

Title: Figurative Expressionism:
Subtitle: Then and Now
Description: Jay Milder, Peter Passuntino, and Bill Barrell will engage in a discussion with art historian and curator Adam Zucker. All three painters come from the Second Generation of Abstract Expressionism in both Provincetown and New York City. However, unlike their abstract contemporaries they have been using the figure as the harbinger for spiritual and political expressionism. With no mainstream support they started to show their work at their own galleries and formed an artist?s collective called Rhino Horn, where they created monumental exhibitions and attracted the attention of their peers and critics. The discussion will emphasize each artist?s individual career and present a collective view on Figurative Expressionism as it began and where it is today.

Title: Between the Social and the Public:
Subtitle: Dialogic Action in Third-Space
Description: Panelists will discuss recent theoretical shifts in a collective perception of social engagement. The corporate monopoly of public space, which replaced the "middle space" of dialogue between the people and the city, produced an offspring: the concept of membership. Now, we no longer choose to participate in public space; we have been summoned to become members, to pay dues, to act the same; all in the name of entertainment, of trivial consumption, of a passive participation in culture. The panelists? intention is to highlight this "middle space," to reclaim and articulate it through a growing discursive awareness, and through artistic disturbances and interferences in space. Panel opens with short performance piece by Adina Bier.

Title: Jay Milder:
Subtitle: The Film
Description: The video presentation, ?Jay Milder: A Life Story,? focuses on the life of Jay Milder, one of the original 7 founders of the Rhino Horn group, along with Benny Andrews, Peter Pasantino, Bill Barrell.

Jay?s story gives life to the creativity needed to establish oneself, and continue one?s life as a dedicated artist. Jay?s story will educate, inspire and enlighten anyone who decides to choose this path. It will inform those whose interest is a study of the history of the American art of the 20th century. For those who are merely curious they too will be informed, inspired and entertained.

Description: Halloween is traditionally a time when the boundary between life and death is thinnest. It is therefore an appropriate time for Dr. Chic Schissel to announce that he has volunteered to be the first modern human cloned in an attempt to be resurrected from the dead by means of art and science. Flash Light, an artist who works at the edge of art and science, proposes to use genetic engineering to clone a new copy of Dr. Schissel?s DNA after his death, and to use psychological rehabilitation therapy to help his cloned brain recover from the total amnesia caused by death. Art can capture the spirit of a person on film, or on video, in paint, or in words. Will Dr. Schissel?s cloned body feel able to recover memories of Dr. Schissel?s spirit by means of art? This panel will explore the philosophical / metaphysical questions about art and spirit, which date back at least to the ancient Egyptians, in the context of modern genetic engineering science.

Description: This panel will explore the impact of a new financial index on valuations of art. The Mei Moses Fine Art Index is a new measure of art and money which uses proprietary financial data to prove that art is a good investment. Two economists, Jianping Mei and Michael Moses, have developed this method to analyze art prices over the past centuries; they use it to spot trends and advise collectors. What does this financial instrument mean for art galleries and artists? What future art world will this generate? Sima Familant is a curator and art collections advisor. Robert A. Schwartz is the Marvin M. Speiser Professor of Finance in the Zicklin School of Business Economics/Finance Departments of Baruch College. He has authored eight books on the operations of equity markets and microeconomic theory, most recently, "Micro Markets, a market structure presentation."

Title: Hans Hoffman

Description: The 28 minute documentary titled "Hans Hofmann" was created by artist/director/producer Sam Feinstein in collaboration with Hofmann beginning in the summer of 1950. Together they wrote the narration while the filming, editing and final production were completed as a solo venture by Feinstein. The filming itself took place in Hofmann?s private studio in Provincetown, as well as in his summer classes, and outdoors on the cape and in New York City. ?The great film about my scholarly and artistic activity,? according to Hofmann---focuses on the philosophy and principles of art conveyed by Hofmann in his teaching and writings, and made evident in the process of his own painting. A ten-minute sequence in the film shows Hofmann painting "The Window," a work now in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Title: Color in Contemporary Sculpture
Description: Color has been a part of sculpture since ancient days. The arts of ancient Greece have exercised an enormous influence on the culture of many countries, particularly in the areas of sculpture and architecture. In the West, the art of the Roman Empire was largely derived from Greek models. In the East, Alexander the Great's conquests initiated several centuries of exchange between Greek, Central Asian and Indian cultures, resulting in Greco-Buddhist art, with ramifications as far as Japan. Following the Renaissance in Europe, the humanist aesthetic and the high technical standards of Greek art inspired generations of European artists. Well into the 19th century, the classical tradition derived from Greece dominated the art of the western world. Contemporary artists have embraced color enthusiastically and it has enlivened many genres of sculpture from minimal to installation, conceptual, Pop and abstract.

Title: Animation as Artistic Practice
Description: Animation Art is the rapid display of a sequence of images of 2-D or 3-D artwork or model positions in order to create an illusion of movement. The effect is an optical illusion of motion due to the phenomenon of persistence of vision, and can be created and demonstrated in several ways. The most common method of presenting animation is as a motion picture or video program, although there are other methods. Artists working in or with animation utilize a number of different platforms and software tools to achieve their expressions in their respective practices. Some practices involve the use of algorithms, some computing, and others analogue methods such as painting on film, glass plate shooting, clay-mation, model animation or pixilation, to name but a few methods. Some methods date from film days while others are resulting from the affects and capabilities of computers and software.

Title: Science + the Spiritual in Art = Genetically Engineered Resurrection?
Subtitle: Chris Twomey's DNA Art
Description: Chris Twomey's newest work will preserve her own DNA, so that it may be cloned at some time in the future after her death. Her cloned body would have no memory of its former life, but this new work asks, if her clone were raised as an amnesia victim, and encouraged to re-learn who she was by viewing the art she had made, is it possible she could be resurrected? The ancient Egyptians believed the spirits of their dead would dwell in the art in their tombs, one day to be reunited with their re-animated mummies after a "journey of millions of years." Genetic engineers have recovered intact DNA from those ancient mummies. Twomey's work will test if the time has come that genetic engineering science brings that journey to its conclusion, and allows the spiritual in art to restore her spirit to her genetically resurrected body. Her work will ask, is it possible to achieve physical & spiritual resurrection here on Earth by literally being born again by means of genetic engineering?

Title: The End of Mainstream Art Criticism?
Description: Just a few decades ago, mainstream newspapers and magazines that considered contemporary culture as their broad subject included designated art critics as regular contributors. A vigorous mainstream dialogue about art past and present resulted. The existence of that often contentious but always accessible dialogue -- conducted by such diverse figures as Peter Plagens, Ingrid Sischy, Hilton Kramer, and Robert Hughes -- implied that awareness of art and the discourse around it was an aspect of active citizenship. The best of what they wrote endures as significant contributions to the literature of art. While the impulse to produce that kind of writing for that kind of audience persists, the opportunities for doing so, as either a staff writer or a free lance, have diminished considerably. This dialogue will examine those developments and their implications for the future of informed writing about art as a feature of mainstream culture.

Title: American Modernism Revisited:
Subtitle: The 1913 Armory Show
Description: This panel is intended to mark the centenary of the Armory Show exhibition, which many modernists acknowledge as a watershed event and yet is still often glossed over or mis-represented. To many scholars and cultural historians the Armory Show marks the moment when Modernism, apparently unknown prior to this moment, suddenly appears in America and allows American modern art to spring like Athena from the collective head of the Europeans exhibited there. This panel does not seek to diminish the importance of the European examples that were in the show but does seek to provide a fuller context surrounding the exhibition including a recognition of the modern art that was already being produced in America at the time and that was included in the show, the media and galleries that helped support these artists, a consideration of influences from the exhibition besides the oft-cited French ones, and concrete examples of the legacy of this exhibition.

Title: 2014 Whitney Counterweight
Description: If the Whitney Biennial comes, can the Whitney Counterweight be far behind? Grace Glueck, N.Y.Times, 1981 Bill Rabinovitch is sole curator of the 2014 Whitney Counterweight, selected entirely from work posted by artists to Facebook, which he's been continuously inspired by. He feels this makes the 2014 Counterweight contemporary with our times, and consistent with how artists now present work. The Counterweight began in the 1970's when Clement Greenberg challenged Rabinovitch to come up with a response to the Whitney Biennial, and Rabinovitch, along with Vernita N'Cognita, and Barnaby Ruhe, organized the first Counterweight in the tradition of the Salon des Refuses. Rabinovitch declares, It's time for artists to regain the territory they relinquished to the system -- where they've mostly become mere replaceable cogs producing indifferent art for market. A primary issue will be the issue of quality over quantity & what that means in terms of new thinking, feeling & drive in moving things forward toward a more meaningful art world capable of creating positive change. Work from the Counterweight will be shown, and artists will speak. See www.WhitneyCounterweight.com for a list of artists involved.

Prof. Wheatman will discuss HDR and iPhoneography (which utilizes a smart phone camera to do serious fine art photography) with photographer/author/educator/artist Dan Burkholder (who is a master in iPhoneography, and who Wheatman calls the teachers teacher).

Title: Rhino Horn Revisited
Description: Both Jay Milder, and Peter Passuntino are painters from the Second Generation of Abstract Expressionism in both Provincetown and New York City. However, unlike their abstract contemporaries they have been using the figure as the harbinger for spiritual and political expressionism. With no mainstream support they started to show their work at their own galleries and formed an artist's collective called 'Rhino Horn,' where they created monumental exhibitions and attracted the attention of their peers and critics. The discussion will emphasize each artist's individual career and present a collective view on Figurative Expressionism as it began and where it is today.

Title: Ceramics Past the Present
Description: The title is easily read two ways: Are we past the present or is the past in the present. Panelist's Anthony Haden-Guest, Steve Montgomery, and Anne Mulford will present their thoughts on contemporary clay, current trends, what they find interesting and both links and brakes with the past. The images seen here are almost non consequential but are examples of a generic mix of ceramics past. Each panelist will have a limited number of images. A small amount of Clay will be passed out at the door to everyone and some melding of the many forms made will make a larger piece.
