Native Youth Shoe Design Workshop


Date: May 20th, 2018, 1:30-5:30pm
Location: Feast Arts Center, 1402 S 11th St, Tacoma, WA 98405
Contact: Misha at 253-459-4041 or Asia at asia@asiatail.com

Indigenous youth ages 10-18 can apply by completing this form by May 7th:
https://goo.gl/forms/UI3uFU2Uu7TgnSoU2

Participants will be selected and notified in advance, no drop-ins please!
Tribal Vibes is a free shoe design workshop that will encourage positive self-expression and cultural pride through the arts. 20 Native participants will be recruited through an open application process to ensure a diverse cohort representative of many tribal affiliations and experience levels.

Two professional artists - Roger Fernandes and Sondra Segundo - will lead culturally informed design activities at the event, incorporating traditional knowledge and stories into their teaching. Each workshop participant will walk away with a new pair of shoes decorated to proudly express who they are as contemporary Indigenous people.

Tribal Vibes is being organized by four Indigenous women - Misha Averill, Maggie Sanders, Adriel Starren, and Asia Tail - as part of Native Action Network's 2018 Leadership Cohort.

Mission Statement
To educate and engage Native American youth through a hands-on experience using Native arts elements, materials, and history to aid self-identity and their relationship to their ancestors and Native American culture.  We would like to bridge the resources and share those who are experts in their craft of American Indian designs to inspire Native American Youth to get engaged.

Goal
To inspire Native American Youth to get involved with traditional and contemporary methods of arts and continuing to practice and keep the arts alive, evolutionary, and experimental. 

Purpose Statement
Creating a space for community and Native American youth to engage, practice, and learn about different Native cultural art elements/designs, and practice those designs on contemporary clothing items, specifically shoes.

Partners
This project is generously supported by Longhouse Education and Cultural Center, Artist & Craftsman Supply Tacoma, Feast Arts Center, and Native Action Network.

Minoosh Zomorodinia: Colonial Walk

to Mar 10

Minoosh Zomorodinia: Colonial Walk

Minoosh Zomorodinia: Colonial Walk

*Opening Night Reception with the artist: Saturday, January 27 from 4-8PM*

Feast Arts Center (Tacoma, WA) and independent curator Thea Quiray Tagle present Minoosh Zomorodinia: Colonial Walk, an interdisciplinary art project that runs from January 27-March 10, 2018. The project is comprised of a gallery exhibition of Zomorodinia’s multimedia installation “Colonial Walk,” in addition to prints and sculptures from the larger series.

Minoosh Zomorodinia is a San Francisco Bay Area-based interdisciplinary artist and educator of Iranian Muslim descent. She holds an MFA from San Francisco Art Institute, and has received awards including the Tosa Award (finalist), the Djerassi Resident Artist Fellowship, and the SFAI MFA Fellowship. She is currently an affiliate artist at the Headlands Center for the Arts, and her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in Canada, England, Finland, Iran, Mexico, Romania, and South Korea. Colonial Walk marks Zomorodinia’s Pacific Northwest debut.

Colonial Walk is a new project-in-process by Minoosh Zomorodinia that extends the artist’s prior investigations into the relationship between the self and the natural environment. Meditating on the ways immigrants can or cannot make home in the United States, Zomordinia takes dérives (or psychogeographic walks) through nature, mapping her routes with geographical information systems (GIS) software and other programs. The videos taken along her routes are then reconstructed intro abstract pathways, and are projected onto larger sculptural forms— creating an ephemeral map of an impossible landscape of Zomorodinia’s imagination. Visitors passing through the gallery alter the maps through their movements, and in doing so further challenge notions of ownership— our ownership of technology and of the land itself.  

From mid-February through the show’s closing on March 10, a series of creative responses to Colonial Walk will be featured in the gallery alongside the project. These responses will be produced by UW Bothell students enrolled in "Another World is Possible," a course taught by Professors Thea Quiray Tagle and Anida Yoeu Ali on socially engaged arts practice.

Minoosh Zomorodinia's visit and performance have been generously underwritten by the following UW Bothell units: Islamophobia and the Arts Research Interest Group, Global Studies, Environmental Studies, and Science and Technology Studies. 

Gallery Hours: Saturdays 12-4PM, Sundays 9AM-1PM and by appointment

The Buddhist Bug: Familiar Still

Opening Reception & Performance by Anida Yoeu Ali
Saturday, October 14th, 11am-5pm

Performance artist Anida Yoeu Ali playfully inhabits "The Buddhist Bug," a sinuous, caterpillar-like garment whose color references the robes of Buddhist monks while following the strict modest attire of orthodox Muslim women. Ali's bug is an exploration of diasporic identities particularly inspired by her fascination with Buddhism as a Cham-Muslim American. Exhibition includes photos, videos, installation and a durational live performance on opening day.

10/7 Free screening of "I Am Secretly An Important Man"

Benefit for Cascadia Poetry Festival/Fundraiser for Historic Marker commemorating Richard Brautigan And Steven J. Bernstein in Tacoma. No admission, donations welcome.

 

Further description: Critically acclaimed documentary chronicling the life and times of Seattle poet Steven "Jesse" Bernstein (1950-1991.) The fifth Cascadia Poetry Festival is being held in Tacoma this year, Oct. 12-15, and one of its themes is "A Tribute to Richard Brautigan." It turns out that Brautigan and Bernstein both lived (not concurrently, of course) in the same house on Fawcett Ave. in downtown Tacoma, and CPF is trying to raise money to erect an official historic plaque on this site. Come help the world to know the City of Destiny once hosted not one but TWO legendary outlaw poets! (Note: all funds collected at event will be earmarked specifically for the plaque. However, these things are expensive, and in the event of a shortfall in the various efforts to make the goal, the monies will be used to defray the expenses of the Festival itself. Which is also expensive--I mean, look at the nationally renowned figures they're hosting.) Gold passes for the Festival will also be available at screening.

LET THE RIVER DRAW AGAIN // Antonio José García Cano
Aug

to Sep 3

LET THE RIVER DRAW AGAIN // Antonio José García Cano

LET THE RIVER DRAW AGAIN

I am from a little village in Region of Murcia in the South East of Spain which is called Rincón de Beniscornia. This is an Arabic name meaning “those who live in the corner”, referring to a big meander of the Segura River where the village used to be. However, the stream was highly modified to avoid floods. It was straightened and channelized which had a big impact on the ecology of the place. I have been living in Tacoma since September 2016. First thing I saw from the plane when I was going to land was the Salish Sea and the flowing waters of several rivers shining in the evening. After that, I was very interested in the Puyallup River and I started to learn about it. I learnt that downstream it had been strongly modified, that the tideflats had been destroyed, and that Climate Change is going to affect it. I also learnt that the Puyallup Tribe had been able to live sustainably with it during thousands of years. This exhibition is part of an on-going process of learning about the river and its memory. It is also a reflection about our relationship with its dynamic and about how it could be different in the future. 

ARTIST STATEMENT 

The river knows the place, explores it constantly and draws beautiful meanders. The water erodes and deposits sediments generating different habitats that promote biodiversity. Its time scale is much longer that ours so we have difficulties to see its movement and to understand it as a living organism in a persistent dialogue with the banks, floodplains, underground water, sea, atmosphere, plants, animals and human community. In many places in the world, rivers have been constrained by flood control works and its memory has been erased and also the memory of those who have lived next to it along centuries. Let us move from a philosophy of controlling the floods to one of coexisting with the waters. Let us withdraw from the lands of the river and learn from its complexity. I wonder how art may contribute to understand the river as a link between communities, and as an opportunity to promote life and resilience to face Climate Change.

BIO

Antonio José García Cano is an artist and researcher interested in the relationship between art and ecology. He studies how art can contribute to the improvement of our current ecological situation. He believes in art that learns from other disciplines and from the complexity of reality. He is especially interested in water and its fluvial dynamics. He has completed a PhD in ecological art that is concerned with the consequences of Climate Change on water ecosystems.

In addition, he is interested in art that learns from ecological memory because access to the memory of the places we inhabit often generates attachment to them. As a result, hopefully, that attachment translates into greater environmental responsibility. He explores this opportunity in his artistic initiatives Azarbón (2009) and Proyecto Iskurna (2010-2014).

He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Washington-Tacoma (USA) where he works and learns with the Professors and eco-artists Beverly Naidus, Vaughn Bell and Elizabeth Conner. This stay is possible because he has been awarded with the Fulbright Scholarship for artists (Sept. 2016-Sept. 2017).

Dance of Gods (practice for my deathbed)

Saturday June 10th, 7:00 - 8:30 PM

'Dance of Gods' is a multi-dimensional art ritual by Marina White Raven (London, UK) in collaboration with artists from Seattle and Tacoma and Feast Arts Center.

This new incarnation of 'Practice for my Deathbed' is both an intimate rite of passage and public spectacle, addressing western cultural taboos and attitudes to death and dying in multiple layers of individual and collective experience.

The ritual begins with the invocation of White Raven who then addresses everyone present before taking her place on the deathbed installation. 
White Raven is attended by seven Psychopomps (death guides) & her companions Black Dog and White Rabbit. 

Seven courageous souls (nominees) are then brought by their Psychopomps to lie on the deathbed beside White Raven and practice their death as she holds their hand. Their 'deaths' are each honoured by a short performance, blessing or gesture by their guides.

This ritual encourages everyone present to actively remember and honour their own losses and loves and for healing to arise.

This is a FREE public event for everybody (Donate $$ to support)

Feel free to bring something to sit on: (cushion, blanket, chair)
BYO: snacks & drinks

Following this event there will be a FREE film screening:
'Endless Poetry' (2016) Jodorowski


('Dance of Gods' is the 2nd of a trilogy of Deathbeds with Feast Arts Center. The first of these; Deathbed 'The Karmic Wheel' was presented in the gallery in October 2016.)

Friday May 19th-   Marwencol

On April 8, 2000, Mark Hogancamp was attacked by five men and left for dead outside of a bar in Kingston, NY. After nine days in a coma, he awoke to find he had no memory of his previous adult life. He had to relearn how to eat, walk and write. 

When his state-sponsored rehabilitative therapies ran out, Mark took his recovery into his own hands. In his backyard, he created a new world entirely within his control - a 1:6 scale World War II town he named Marwencol. Using doll alter egos of his friends and family, his attackers and himself, Mark enacted epic battles and recreated memories, which he captured in strikingly realistic photographs. Those photos eventually caught the eye of the art world, which lead to a series of gallery exhibitions, the award-winning documentary "Marwencol," the acclaimed book "Welcome to Marwencol," and a new identity for a man once ridiculed for playing with dolls. 

Saturday June 3rd - Cameraperson

A boxing match in Brooklyn; life in postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment at home: these scenes and others are woven into Cameraperson, a tapestry of footage captured over the twenty-five-year career of documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson.

Saturday June 10th-  Endless Poetry 

ENDLESS POETRY portrays Alejandro Jodorowsky's young adulthood, set in the 1940s and 50s, in the electric capital city of Santiago. There, he decides to become a poet and is introduced, by destiny, into the foremost bohemian and artistic circle of the time. He meets Enrique Lihn, Stella Diaz Varín, Nicanor Parra and many others of the country's young, promising and unknown artists who would later become the titans of Latin America's literature. ENDLESS POETRY is a tale of poetic experimentation; the story of a unique youth that lived as not many before them had dared: sensually, authentically, freely, madly.

Opening Reception- Romson Regarde Bustillo: Kingdom of Prophets

Opening Reception- Romson Regarde Bustillo: Kingdom of Prophets

The foundation of much of what I do is in printmaking, mixed media, and space coding. Transdisciplinary, my work is nourished by research. The tools we use to process information and the moments tied to our understandings help shape my vocabulary. Images and marks become visual cues to narratives, questions, and observations. 

I make prints; a combination of collagraphs, intaglio, relief, and serigraphy forming recent works. The vast majority are monoprints, each pulled from multiple master plates made from diverse surfaces.  

Bio
Born in the Philippines, Romson Regarde Bustillo immigrated to Seattle with his family in 1978. He has spent extended periods of time working on his art in Spain, Mexico, and the Philippines; as well as research work in S.E. Asia and Central America. He maintains an art studio in the Central District of Seattle. Locally, his work is represented in the collections of the City of Seattle, the City of Tacoma, the City of Portland(RACC), Washington State Art Commission, ArtColl Trust, ACRS, and the Wing Luke Asian Museum.


The show will run from April 2nd -May 13th
Opening Reception- April 2nd 4-7PM

Talk with Marilyn and Elliat: queer, women, filmmakers, friends.

Join us for a reflection upon the journey of two active female lesbian/queer filmmakers who have shared a supportive relationship for 16 years. Marilyn Freeman and Elliat Graney-Saucke, both 2016 Artist Trust Fellowship grantees, met in Olympia, Wa in 2001 on the set of "Group," a feature film by Marilyn and her partner Anne de Marcken, where Elliat was a production assistant through a high school internship. Speed forward 15+ years, Marilyn and Elliat are both still powering forward in their filmmaking and still in each others lives. This talk will explore their shared histories and the developments of their bodies of work.

Elliat Graney-Saucke is based in Seattle, WA, after living in Berlin, Germany from 2009-2015, and is completing her second feature documentary film "Boys on the Inside" about 'boy' identity in women's prisons. Elliat is currently Media Documentation Research Lead for the National Performance Network as well as serving as President of the Seattle Documentary Association and steering committee member of S.A.L.T. (Seattle Arts Leadership Team - Office of Arts and Culture), Next Generation National Arts Network and the Women's Working Group. Elliat has produced a body of over 20 short films with work screening in over thirteen countries. With additional film/creative projects in the works, she is as well the new Managing Director of the media communications agency Elliat Creative. 

Marilyn Freeman is based in Olympia, WA and has most recently coined and created a body of work under the philosophy and creative-spiritual frame of CinemaDivina. Her most recently long-term project is the decade long feature narrative "Sophisticated: The Hollywood Story of Miss Dorothy Arzner," about the early Hollywood lesbian film director. Her notable early work includes "Group" and "Meeting Magdalene." Marilyn has also been a media arts instructor at The Evergreen State College and is currently Director of state based media productions for Washington.
