Events & Performances
I organize events and performances, plus curate shows as part of my art practice. A few highlights are listed below:
Gina Lotta Post Artistamp Museum
A showcase of an artistamp collection to encourage others to participate in the making and sharing of their artistamp creations. You can become a participant in this project by sending your artistamps to be reviewed for acceptance to the museum. You can also donate articles published about artistamps, some you've written, or other curious artistamp artifacts if you don't currently make artistamps. Catalogs and books are available about the works.
Art In Space Launch
Art in Space Launch was a live performance event held outside of San Francisco in 1984 with Sam Samore, Aron Ranen, Mike Mages and some help from Walter Alter. Our purpose was to send art into space for the first time.
Inter-Florida Fluxus Tour
Fluxus performance artists Wood, Altemus, Maltos, Lloyd, and Buchholz tour Florida in 2010, performing at the Dali Museum, Artpool, Kennedy Space Center, Jaffe Center for Book Arts, Burt Reynolds Museum, and other locations. Photos and art illustrate the pages in a documentary book of this tour. A blog also provides additional information.
Inter DADA 84 was a week long arts festival held September 2nd through September 9th, in San Francisco, CA. It was a celebration of DADA. Co-organized with Terrance McMahon, it was loosely modeled on Inter DADA 80 held in Ukiah, CA (well documented in Cavellini’s book Cavellini in California) and the Fourth of July Parades of my childhood. My job became chief organizer, mail art tracker, manager, fundraiser, promoter and publicist of the event.
The Storefront was a “living art project” of one year with a show a month in the Storefront window and rotating series of performances through the space. Many of the guest artists have become well known within their genre. A book published by Fault Press documents the year,
Copy Art Exhibition
Noticing the wonderful artworks people in San Francisco (1979) were making using copy machines inspired the idea that a show would be important. The world should see this. At the time I was in the process of preparing for an exhibition of my own work at San Francisco’s Hot Flash of America. Artists from all over the world participated and were documented in a catalog. The show traveled to Los Angeles and Japan,
