Agenda
Growing Things: 
The Cultures of Nano Tech, Bio Tech, and Eco Tech Meat Art

Many artists are fascinated with the imminent possibilities of designing
life forms, but are we damaging or growing things? How can we open the lines
of communication between Human/Nature/Technology? After all, our species
have intervened into Nature ways for a long, long time. Can we turn
devastation into art? From agriculture and medical intervention to forestry
and recycling older technologies, this millennial summit cultivates
collaborations amongst artists, scientists, ecologists, technologists and
developers from various industries who have interests in the accelerated
growth of bio and nano tech.

From: Wu-ming Yi <roberto.bui {AT} libero.it>
Subject: wumingfoundation

http://www.wumingfoundation.com

The official organ of the wu-ming foundation, laboratory of narrative 
productions.

Our declaration "of war"  +  works in progress, abstracts and advance 
chapters from the next novels + multi-lingual press items  +  freely 
downloadable books (as yet, unfortunately, only in Italian... However, 
Q  is being translated into Spanish, French, German, Dutch and Greek) (June 
2000) + commented links to other "post-Blissett" groups and to all sorts of 
groups and movements that fight capitalism, globalization and the worldwide 
apartheid.

/Giap/  is wu-ming's electronic newsletter. It keeps subscribers up-to-date 
with what goes on in
our atypical business company. The newsletter is named after the Vietnamese 
general Vo
Nguyen Giap,  who kicked the French and the US out of Indochina.

There are two different editions:

/Giap/ (regular) is the original Italian bulletin. It is sent out about 
once a week to those who send us a message with "Vo Nguyen Giap" in the 
subject field.
Each issue is archived in html-format 2-3 days after its release.

/Giap/digest/ is the international edition in English. It contains 
translated abstracts from /Giap/
and will be posted about once a month. The procedure to subscribe is the 
same, plus one has to type "digest" in the message's body.

[It won't be posted on Nettime.]

As happens with the Italian bulletin, the issues will be stored in the 
"Giap" section of wumingfoundation.com

Subject: activities Summer 2000

press release

		"Nuova Icona / Associazione Culturale per le Arti"

announces for June 2000 the presentation in Venice

 of four new events of contemporary visual art:

_____________________________________________________________________________

1) at the Oratorio of S. Ludovico (Dorsoduro, Calle dei Vecchi, 2552 -
boat stop

"S.Basilio" of the lines 82 - 61) the 15 June 2000 at 6.00 p.m. there
will be the opening - for the Oratorio of S. Ludovico - of the
exhibition:

CUL - DE - SAC / CHARLES MASON

A new sculpture by this young British artist. Rethinking the bare
physical essentials of the

presence of a shape, the work of Mason explores modernist traditions in
original, biomorphic ways. The Oratorio is a new Venetian space hosting
young creativity in the field of the visual arts.

see website http:// freespace.virginnet.co.uk/mason.charles

curated by Deborah Antonini, Vittorio Urbani. Catalogue with a text by
Simon Wallis. 

With the support of The British Council, the London Arts Board.

The exhibition will be open until July 16, from Wednesday to Sunday,
hrs 4.00 p.m. - 8.00 p.m.


2) at the Wholesale Fish Market (Tronchetto island) the 16 June 2000,
with two openings at 4 am (yes, 4 a.m.!) and 5 p.m. - for
museometropolitano - there will be the opening of the installation:

AQUA ALTA / STEFAN DORNBUSCH

The very first artistic 'commission' to be realized at the island of
the Tronchetto, an area overlooked in favour of Venice's 'attractive'
and tourist-overridden areas, but nevertheless important as node in the
economic activity connecting the city in the lagoon with that situated
on the mainland. The young German architect/artist transforms the
massive shapes of the Mercato in a 'machine', an ambiguous form between
architecture and sculpture, an isolated and disconcerting presence.

this event is under the patronage of the 7th Biennale of Architecture

curated by Franco Gazzarri, Vittorio Urbani. Catalogue with a text by
Marco De Michelis. Always visible, until July 31st.


3) at Spazio Thetis (Arsenale of Venice, boat stop "Bacini" of the
vaporetto lines 41 and 42) the 16 June at 7.00 p.m. - for
museometropolitano - there will be the opening of:

PARTICIPATION OF THE IRELAND AT THE SEVENTH BIENNALE OF ARCHITECTURE:

N3 / TOM DE PAOR

Ireland's first participation in a Biennale di Architettura. A
provisional pavilion, designed by the young architect Tom de Paor, will
be built in a green area. The work at the Thetis, the notable centre
for the revitalisation of the Arsenale in Venice, 'the largest
industrial site of medieval Europe', is a way to activate and render
concrete the theme of 'cultural production' as a possible economic
alternative for Italy's cities of art with respect to the
differentiation of the monoculture of tourism. 

Initiated by the Cultural Relations Committeee of the Department of
Foreign Affairs, and supported by the Arts Council, Dublin, the event
is curated by Raymund Ryan, in collaboration with Antonietta Grandesso
for Spazio Thetis, Vittorio Urbani for Nuova Icona/museometropolitano.
The structure will be open until July 31, everyday, hrs 11 a.m. - 7.00
p.m. 

This is an official event of the Seventh Biennale of Architecture.


4) at the Gallery Nuova Icona (Giudecca - Calle dell'Olio, 454, boat
stop "Palanca", vaporetto 41 / 42 / 82) the 17 June 2000 at 6.00 p.m.
there will be the opening of the exhibition:

DISPATCH / THOMAS ELLER, MIKE PIERGROSSI, FRAN SIEGEL

Three New York-based artists studying and working in Italy for the
Summer are united 'under the same roof' for an unusually non-curatorial
exhibition with as common denominator travelling and displacement.
Connecting the foreign institutions where they work/study and
presenting three different approaches, styles and poetics, these three
one-person shows represent their first encounter with exhibiting in
Italy. 

curated by Vittorio Urbani, Michele De Marchi. The exhibition will be
open until July 16, from Wednesday to Sunday, hrs 4.00 p.m. - 8.00
p.m.

of artist's projects, the organization of shows, the publication of
catalogues in the field of contemporary visual arts. Nuova Icona has
two exhibition venues, the Gallery on the Giudecca island and a little
church, the Oratorio di San Ludovico. In seven years of activity 67
shows have been organized and 43 catalogues published. A new initiative
is to engage the town itself in artist's projects and to consider its
stunning past art patrimony as a spiritual resource for new
productions. With an experimental attitude in contemporary art, Nuova
Icona views itself as the organizative element, the active layer
between the public and the artist, a workshop where new projects can be
realized.

press release

		"Nuova Icona / Associazione Culturale per le Arti"

announces for June 2000 the presentation in Venice

 of four new events of contemporary visual art:

_____________________________________________________________________________

1) at the Oratorio of S. Ludovico (Dorsoduro, Calle dei Vecchi, 2552 -
boat stop

"S.Basilio" of the lines 82 - 61) the 15 June 2000 at 6.00 p.m. there
will be the opening - for the Oratorio of S. Ludovico - of the
exhibition:

CUL - DE - SAC / CHARLES MASON

A new sculpture by this young British artist. Rethinking the bare
physical essentials of the

presence of a shape, the work of Mason explores modernist traditions in
original, biomorphic ways. The Oratorio is a new Venetian space hosting
young creativity in the field of the visual arts.

see website http:// freespace.virginnet.co.uk/mason.charles

curated by Deborah Antonini, Vittorio Urbani. Catalogue with a text by
Simon Wallis. 

With the support of The British Council, the London Arts Board.

The exhibition will be open until July 16, from Wednesday to Sunday,
hrs 4.00 p.m. - 8.00 p.m.


2) at the Wholesale Fish Market (Tronchetto island) the 16 June 2000,
with two openings at 4 am (yes, 4 a.m.!) and 5 p.m. - for
museometropolitano - there will be the opening of the installation:

AQUA ALTA / STEFAN DORNBUSCH

The very first artistic 'commission' to be realized at the island of
the Tronchetto, an area overlooked in favour of Venice's 'attractive'
and tourist-overridden areas, but nevertheless important as node in the
economic activity connecting the city in the lagoon with that situated
on the mainland. The young German architect/artist transforms the
massive shapes of the Mercato in a 'machine', an ambiguous form between
architecture and sculpture, an isolated and disconcerting presence.

this event is under the patronage of the 7th Biennale of Architecture

curated by Franco Gazzarri, Vittorio Urbani. Catalogue with a text by
Marco De Michelis. Always visible, until July 31st.


3) at Spazio Thetis (Arsenale of Venice, boat stop "Bacini" of the
vaporetto lines 41 and 42) the 16 June at 7.00 p.m. - for
museometropolitano - there will be the opening of:

PARTICIPATION OF THE IRELAND AT THE SEVENTH BIENNALE OF ARCHITECTURE:

N3 / TOM DE PAOR

Ireland's first participation in a Biennale di Architettura. A
provisional pavilion, designed by the young architect Tom de Paor, will
be built in a green area. The work at the Thetis, the notable centre
for the revitalisation of the Arsenale in Venice, 'the largest
industrial site of medieval Europe', is a way to activate and render
concrete the theme of 'cultural production' as a possible economic
alternative for Italy's cities of art with respect to the
differentiation of the monoculture of tourism. 

Initiated by the Cultural Relations Committeee of the Department of
Foreign Affairs, and supported by the Arts Council, Dublin, the event
is curated by Raymund Ryan, in collaboration with Antonietta Grandesso
for Spazio Thetis, Vittorio Urbani for Nuova Icona/museometropolitano.
The structure will be open until July 31, everyday, hrs 11 a.m. - 7.00
p.m. 

This is an official event of the Seventh Biennale of Architecture.


4) at the Gallery Nuova Icona (Giudecca - Calle dell'Olio, 454, boat
stop "Palanca", vaporetto 41 / 42 / 82) the 17 June 2000 at 6.00 p.m.
there will be the opening of the exhibition:

DISPATCH / THOMAS ELLER, MIKE PIERGROSSI, FRAN SIEGEL

Three New York-based artists studying and working in Italy for the
Summer are united 'under the same roof' for an unusually non-curatorial
exhibition with as common denominator travelling and displacement.
Connecting the foreign institutions where they work/study and
presenting three different approaches, styles and poetics, these three
one-person shows represent their first encounter with exhibiting in
Italy. 

curated by Vittorio Urbani, Michele De Marchi. The exhibition will be
open until July 16, from Wednesday to Sunday, hrs 4.00 p.m. - 8.00
p.m.

Artery: The AIDS-Arts Forum Launches

May 2000-The Estate Project (http://www.artistswithAIDS.org) announces
the launch of an important new addition to its website - Artery: The
AIDS-Arts Forum. Artery's mission is to examine both the history of the
AIDS crisis and its changing face as reflected in the arts. Artery is also
the interpretive arm of The Estate Project which, for several years, has
been preserving visual artworks, film, dance and activist video created
during the AIDS crisis,

This week Artery launches. The spring theme is "In Motion". Features
include a reunion (via email) of the NEA 4, a Symposium about the
unfashionability of AIDS-arts today, an Artist in the Archives interview
with Jack Waters, the film program's first living (and African-American)
artist, a memoir by Philip Lopate about filmmaker Warren Sonbert,
never-before-published images of dancer Bill T. Jones, a look at recent
AIDS-photo books, and an essay about the landmark, San Francisco
AIDS-theatrework "The AIDS Show" (1984), among other features.

It is expected that the  International Events Calendar will help make
Artery a global center for AIDS discourse, and one which is unique for its
focus on the intersection of AIDS and the arts. (Information about
programscan be submitted on the site's calendar section or emailed  to
artery {AT} allianceforarts.org.) Another unique element of Artery is its
AIDS-Arts Timeline. This searchable, double timeline will chronicle both
AIDS events and AIDS-arts events of the past two decades. Rudimentary
information is already visible on the site and audiences around the world
are asked to contribute information to it (in the form of text, image and
sound files) about events with which they are familiar. Just as every
locale and society has its own AIDS epidemic, so too does every locale have
its own history of the epidemic. This "people's history" is expected to
debut next fall, prior to December 1st, Day Without Art/World AIDS Day.

"Artery has grown organically out of The Estate Project's work preserving
artworks created during the AIDS crisis," Patrick Moore, its director noted.
"Artery can help us examine important issues raised by the artworks we
preserve: What have we learned from AIDS? What do today's artistic
responses, and yesterday's, tell us about the epidemic and ourselves? How do
artists respond to crisis?" Atkins also believes that the epidemic remains a
wellspring of unresolved emotion-on all sides. "As one of the participants
in Artery's first symposium observed: 'The influence of AIDS-related art is
huge - too large to see clearly and yet pervasive.' It's the Vietnam of the
eighties," he said. "We need places to discuss such issues and express those
feelings."
