Lifestyle Channel -TV INTERVIEW, April 11, 2017

*** Tues, April 11, 8pm, INTERVIEWED LIVE 30 MINS.***
Barbara Rosenthal INTERVIEWED LIVE by Manhattan Neighborhood Network, Channels 56, 83, 35 and MNN.org (Lifestyle Channel) about her 38-year project, the novel-with-photographs, WISH FOR AMNESIA, and how it fits into her life's work in video, text and performance. As well as what this iconoclastic intellectual might think about politics and philosophy. The interviewer is Paul DeRienzo. This will be his second interview of Rosenthal at this station. They plan to jump off from a point made earlier this week by Lehman Weichselbaum, during his interview of her at eMediaLoft: the games and puzzles and tricks in and machinery of Rosenthal's novel WISH FOR AMNESIA, and how much chicanery and puzzle works there are in so many of her other projects.

PHOTO: Bill Creston and Barbara Rosenthal in front of Rosenthal's mirror in her Summer-1976 sublet at 25 Thompson St. The cat is "Stripe," kept with her through her divorce from Terry Liss a few weeks earlier. She engaged this sublet from the sister of a woman who came to look at the loft at 95 Ave B that Barbara and Terry were divorcing from. Barbara and Bill have since also raised one more cat, three dogs, two children and two grandchildren. They have only moved once, since they moved in together at 727 Sixth Ave, and that only a few blocks dowriver to the West Village. Come celebrate at their favorite West Village place, made famous by the writer Dylan Thomas. White Horse Tavern, NYC.

Sept 7 - Oct 30, 2016 Exhibition: TALK TALK (art about spoken communication)
Thurs, Sept 22, 6-8 Opening Reception: Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/954626234665599/
Curated by Maddy Rosenberg in this space dedicated to scientific phenomena, this season’s exhibit “Talk Talk,” exploring human speech, includes the following three works by Barbara Rosenthal
1. PRINT: “Mouth-a-Bet”, 1966-2016. This is a digitization of a pen-and-ink sentence that looks like some a code of cursive symbols, and then the key: an alphabet designed by this artist in 1966, when she was 18 years old, from the shape of her own mouth as it says each letter. This extraordinary piece is for the first time being presented publicly, now as archival ink-jet print edition of 12.
2. TWO VIDEOS: “Nonsense Conversation” (“Unsinn Conversation”), 1988 Barbara Rosenthal and Ola Creston, age 9. Improvisation with brilliant child actress. Premiered The Kitchen, NYC, April, 1988, Screened recently at Directors Lounge, Berlin; Millennium Film Workshop, NYC. VHS original, 1988 DVD remaster 2009 (3min 8sec 8fr).
“I Have a New York Accent,” 1988. A Barbara Rosenthal short performance video, in which her own voice gives way to that of others speaking her word, meaning her same meanings, but showing us that what we believe is really quite variable. Another example of Rosenthal's investigations into self, other selves, humanity, and urban identity. VHS original, 1988 DVD remaster 2009 (1min 37sec 8fr).
Note: These two videos on exhibition and sale here at this time, are a segment of the Special Edition DVDs created in honor of this event: “Talk Talk: Six Videos About Spoken Communication,” which also comprises an additional four shorts: “I Have a NY Accent,” (featuring Hannah Weiner), I Can Talk Burp Talk (featuring Ola Creston), Words Come Out Backwards and How Much Does the Monkey Remember.

Finissage, Sept 7, 6-8pm
Stefan Stux Gallery
Hours T-Sat 10-6
Ola Writes the Alphabet (1982) by Barbara Rosenthal, in "Happy Flies Kissing Beautiful Face: Works in Black and White."
Artists James Busby, Steven Charles, Gia Edzgveradze, Carl Fudge, Heide Hatry, Richard Humann, Takesada Matsutani, Kosyo Minchev, Osmo Rauhala, Barbara Rosenthal, Carolee Schneemann, David Shrigley, Nancy Spero, Aldo Tambellini.
DESCRIPTION:
Ola Writes The Alphabet, 1982, was one of Rosenthal's single-take "Video Verité" pieces about cognition and text. It survived through many technological upgrades: 1982 1/2" open reel, VHS transfer 1990; 3/4 remaster 1992; Digital remaster 2004. Edition of 25 DVDs: 2013. Run TIME: 12 min.
“Ola Writes The Alphabet” is a “decisive moment” in both video and child development by a consummate artist of another of her neologisms: "Video Verité". At her mother’s (the artist's) prompting, Ola Creston, age 3, recalls some letters of the alphabet perfectly, but others only with great creative latitude, letting us see into the development of letter-forms in a young brain. An extremely straight-forward, observational presentation with no filmmaker-type interference, this DVD was originally shot in 1982 on black and white 1/2” open reel videotape. It is a boundary-crossing work that can find audiences among child and family psychologists, neurologists, linguists, educator, parents and children themselves, well beyond this artist’s usual base within video history and the avant-garde.

The two images depict her holding two of the the Provocation Cards Project. They are stills from her VHS video Lying Diary / Provocation Cards, the first media use of the cards after they had been originally generated as anonymous mail art from Rosenthal of phrases she had written in her Journals of the 1980s, and published within Homo Futurus, 1986 (Visual Studies Workshop Press.) These are some of the phrases on the cards she gave out at Socrates Sculpture Garden, L.I.C.

Sat, Aug 17, 2013, 10-11pm. (video screening)
Conceptual Photo Collages (Paper on Vellum, 2008) and “Pregnancy Dreams / Priming a Wall” (Video, 1979)
Please join us Sat, August 17, 8-11pm, for a birthday party at the vernissage of the solo show of wall art and video by international media and performance artist Barbara Rosenthal! Peanut Underground is proud to announce a solo exhibition to usher in the fifth decade of the idiosyncratic and dynamic career of this
old master of new media for her 65th birthday party, at which we will premiere six new photo collages (2008-13) and a digitally remastered 1979 video “Pregnancy Dreams / Priming a Wall." These recent photo collages contain images and video stills spanning 30 years of the artist's vision and provide viewers a window into the rich and provocative world of an individual considered a fixture of the avant-garde since the 1970's. Floating within the frame in unconventional shapes, with jutting angles, they also reference the disorienting cropping and framing techniques Rosenthal uses to reinterpret her subject matter. Each of the six pieces creates a surrealist and existential dialogue taking place in six different, mysterious landscapes. Precariously balanced, the collages incorporate moments from the life, travels, iconography and subconscious of the artist, evoking an implied narrative which takes place in the present moment and in the mind of each of her viewers. Students from Parsons School of Design and elsewhere have been invited to create fictions based on these works.
In installation as well will be an early video diptych, which originated in Super-8 film and 1/2” open reel video, in 1979. At its premiere at BACA the Brooklyn Arts and Culture Association, "Pregnancy Dreams" was censored and roundly denigrated because it depicts the artist at age 30, nine months pregnant and nude. It is being presented at this moment now at our gallery because it was just archived this week by the New Museum’s XFR STN and uploaded to The Internet Archive for viewing in perpetuity (http://archive.org/). It is a counterpoint to the collages because this artist is a consummate producer of art-life-mind connections that go well beyond simple day occurrences or individual ethnography to tell us much more all about ourselves.

Director Lounge Berlin Film Festival

World premiere of new video,
"TOIL OF THREE CITIES / LIEBESMÜH" 2012
15min, looped 6-7:45pm
description: Formally, a parody of the classic documentary (picture illustrates narration), this socio-politically serious film about urban workers, police action and the legalization of prostitution, spins into a funny, absurdist fable for our time. Strong jazz and experimental music by Charlie Morrow and five other composers plus hundreds of succulent photos from Rosenthal's travels and library darting around the screen, accompany the main character's research into the reasons other people "work hard for the pleasure of others", as she tries to open her own heart.
cast & crew: auteur: Barbara Rosenthal; cast: Barbara Rosenthal, DJ RoBeat; music: Charlie Morrow, DJ RoBeat, Virgil Segal, Brand Stifter, Matthew Lee Knowles; extra footage: Bill Creston, Jenny Irish, Jaimie Pene, Nicole Mittenbühler; technical assistance: Ich Bin Künstler.

Bound by Silence
Dowd Gallery
SUNY Cortland
Cortland, New York
The following pieces by Barbara Rosenthal will be exhibited (Rosenthal will not be present.):
Clues to Myself  1981(unbound pages, framed & bound book).
Structure and Meaning  1982 (book).
Identity Theft Masks Rondola Single Images Print (framed); Identity Theft Masks Button Pins on Page (framed) 2011.

Identity Theft Masks Book (in vitrine, standing open zig zag) 2010.
Journal (pages from, projected) selected pages from 2008-11
Bound by Silence curated by Heather Powell, Dowd Gallery, State University of NY at Cortland.
 "Identity Theft Masks", "Clues to Myself", "Structure and Meaning", "Pages from the Journals", and other bookworks by Barbara Rosenthal that develop a nexus between identity, idea, language, image and communication will be displayed as part of the "Bound by Silence" exhibition and catalog of "artists who create a personal and unique language" including Barbara Kruger, Ed Ruscha, Buzz Spector, Jenny Holzer, John Baldessari, Alison Knowles, Barbara Rosenthal and Carl Andrel.
"These works examine the relationship between the visual elements and literary devices at play and emphasize the correlation between meaning and metaphor. The five artists featured in Bound by Silence have at some point been driven to create an object that incorporates their language into a book-like design.  This exhibit presents a series of artist-made manuscripts that consider the translation of the artist’s aesthetic vocabulary into writing systems that concentrate on the source and treatment of artistic language.  Some of these artists have assembled their content from critical techniques, biographical information, and elements of fiction, as well as asemic styles of communicating.  All of these works are a record of the artist’s private life- poetic and imaginative, careful and exact, revelatory and explicit.

POSTCARDS

Video by Barbara Rosenthal, 2 min.
LOCAL PROJECT ARTSPACE,
Synopsis: "POSTCARDS" 1988 footage; edit 1992; remastered 2010
Three curious postcards. What is the writer's relationship to "Friends"? Does she mean us? Two scenes are isolated, one is densely packed. Two are from the city, one is not. All are remote. The text does not come easily. We think something is wrong, but we don't know what it is. The postcards might set our relationship right again, but the writer isn't sure.  The music is melancholy. We are made uneasy.
Typical of Barbara Rosenthal's videos, this piece evolved over time. It began as a series of 35mm slides shot while driving to Florida in 1988, and from the window of her top-floor loft on Avenue of the Americas, NYC. In 1990, a slide-adapter transferred three slides to VHS, and text was added with Amiga computer. In 1992, the 3-part piece served as one segment of the 3/4" composite video "Shadow Boxes, Etc." The original slides have been digitally scanned and enhanced, the font replaced, and timing tweaked during remastering, 2009.

Title: "BuzzClickSsshhTingle"
Producer/Director/Concept/Editor: BARBARA ROSENTHAL (from NY)

Year: 2010-2011
Genres/keywords; EXISTENTIALISM, INSECTS, FLYING, COMPOSITING, HUMOR, NATURE.
Languages: None (music only)
Run time: 3min
Description:
Whether left to their own resources (or not), insect life (and perhaps our own) can be pretty resourceful. Several insects, not of the same species or size or even habitat, commingle, mate, and perhaps devour each other to the beat of this experimental compositization and soundtrack by two artists communicating in cyberspace. DJ RoBeat's music and insect photos are composited by Rosenthal. Whatever creatures can develop when two unalikes unite??? Just watch!
