Emily Roysdon: If I Don’t Move Can You Hear Me?

 Tomorrow afternoon, 3 PM! My dear friend Emily Roysdon's MATRIX show opens at the Berkeley Art Museum. For the occasion of the opening, Greg Youmans and I will do a performative reading of "A Little Prairie" Eileen Myles & Leopoldine Core's piece from Emily's new zine: A Queer Relational Associative Project Dictionary! In addition, there will be more readings and screenings, and my body silk screened in many a performative pose. Should be real fun!


In conjunction with MATRIX 235/ Emily Roysdon: If I Don’t Move Can You
Hear Me?, on view December 12, 2010 – March 6, 2011

Performance and Screening
Emily Roysdon
Sunday, December 12, 3 p.m.
Galleries 1 and B

Admission free!

Emily Roysdon’s frequent collaborators, Craig Willse and Chris Vargas, will present a performative reading of A Queer Relational Associative Project Dictionary, a zine that Roysdon created for her MATRIX exhibition. In addition, Roysdon will screen Social Movement and Story of History, two films she made in the series that now includes If I Don’t Move Can You Hear Me?

Artist and writer Emily Roysdon produces projects at the intersection of social, political, and aesthetic space, evincing an interest in the invisible histories of public sites, the potencies of both language and
movement, and the possibilities of abstraction as both a form and mental
construct. Her practice is shaped by collaboration, and its implication
of negotiation, improvisation, and dialogical thinking. This is embodied
in her activities as the editor and cofounder of the influential queer
feminist journal and artist collective LTTR; as a member of the band MEN;
and as a curator, most recently of Ecstatic Resistance. Her work
interrogates the representation of collectivities (as both movement and
movements) by engaging in an expanded field of choreography as organized
movement in both an aesthetic and political sense.

Like much of her recent work, Roysdon’s MATRIX project, produced largely
on-site in Berkeley, uses public space and the city as material, context,
and form. The exhibition comprises performance for camera in the form of
video and photographs and a new publication in which Roysdon and
collaborators consider the project’s vocabulary of use, regulation,
structure, and frame.

Reception to follow in the Bancroft Lobby.

Falling In Love... with Chris and Greg: "Oh La La! Paris Special"

We finally posted it! Yes, another Falling In Love... "special" and again we take our relationship on the road, but we swear--really, this time it's different. We're in Paris, not the American Southwest and we're dealing with a whole other set of relationship problems: namely our precarious financial futures in regards to our respective 'careers.' It's going to be awkward and it's going to end badly, but if you've seen any of the other videos in the series this is not a shocker.

Hope you like!

(2010, 10 minutes)
Synopsis: "Chris and Greg think about moving to France. Then they realize that neither of them will be making any money anytime soon."
