Saturday, October 9, 7pm


Farrah Field’s poems have appeared or are forthcoming in many publications including the Mississippi Review, Typo, Harp & Altar, La Petite Zine, Ploughshares, Mantis and Cannibal. Rising, her first book of poems, won Four Way Books’ 2007 Levis Prize. She lives in Brooklyn where she co-hosts a reading series called Yardmeter Editions. She blogs athttp://adultish.blogspot.com/.

Jared White’s poems and essays have appeared in journals such as Action Yes, Barrow Street, Cannibal, Coconut, Fulcrum, Harp & Altar, Laurel Review and Open Letters. A chapbook, Yellowcake, was part of the hand-sewn anthology, Narwhal, from Cannibal Books. He lives in DUMBO, Brooklyn, where he co-hosts arts and poetry events at Yardmeter Editions and sometimes blogs at http://jaredswhite.blogspot.com/.

Joe Yorty was raised in the southwest corner of the state of Utah and spent his high school years in Escondido, California. Much of the time between then and now is filled with almost 11 years of military service in which he served onboard ships that carried him to many distant lands. Along with being gainfully employed by the Department of Art at University of San Diego as their head technician Joe is currently in his second year as an MFA candidate in the Visual Arts department at UCSD where he is engaged in the search for an art-making practice that incorporates his obsession with second-hand shopping. You can learn more about him at http://www.joeyorty.com/

Agitprop readings are free, but wine and donations to the gallery are always welcome.

Brain Trust II http://agitpropspace.org/2010/05/19/brain-trust-ii/ http://agitpropspace.org/2010/05/19/brain-trust-ii/#comments Thu, 20 May 2010 04:32:09 +0000 David White http://agitpropspace.org/?p=678

Please join us this Friday May 21st for a second iteration of the “Brain Trust” while also enjoying the mytho-poetic visual stylings of Louis M. Schmidt and Chris Kardambikis.  ”Brain Trust II” is part of a series of events leading up to There Goes the Neighborhood! http://theregoes.org/.  So please join us to find out what the “Brain Trust” is, learn more about upcoming events and most importantly discuss and debate what all of these events are about.  There will be a short presentation on the Brain Trust, Agitprop itself, There Goes the Neighborhood and other upcoming projects. Refreshments served. See you Friday!

Text from the original “Brain Trust” Exhibition at Art Produce Gallery:

“Agitprop is a space in North Park that attempts to blur the lines between individual art practice, the Studio, the Gallery and the Neighborhood. These attempts have taken the form of the Agitprop space itself, exhibitions, literary readings, live art critiques, artwork in empty storefronts and collaborations with other neighborhood entities. “Brain Trust” asks you to become a participant and facilitator of future projects. The Agitprop “Brain Trust” is established through Brain Blocks, small concrete sculptures that are equivalent in volume to an actual human brain. Brain Blocks turn corporate and art world institutional conventions on their head as a method of generating support for projects based on connectivity and community at the scale of the neighborhood. The initiation of Agitprop as a space, and subsequently the “Brain Trust” project, stems from an examination and response to current art-supportive structures and artists’ relationships to local communities. While many art-supportive structures are based on the commodification of the work of art or non-profit funding that is dependant on corporate trickle down economics, this project asks the question “Is it possible to have a local art practice supported by those who that practice targets?” Brain Blocks when purchased act as sculptural stock in Agitprop. Sculptural shareholders will be asked for input and feedback on future projects, which will therefore influence the project’s outcome, thus establishing a local practice linked to a local network of individuals.”

Colby Jackson’s Milky Way Galaxy Shop @ LINKSOUL in Oceanside http://agitpropspace.org/2010/04/01/colby-jacksons-milky-way-galaxy-shop/ http://agitpropspace.org/2010/04/01/colby-jacksons-milky-way-galaxy-shop/#comments Fri, 02 Apr 2010 04:14:10 +0000 David White http://agitpropspace.org/?p=625

This Saturday is the opening of an exhibition at LINKSOUL in Oceanside by artist Colby Jackson.  We highly recommend attending this event as Colby is one of the most fascinating artists working in Southern California. Excerpt from the LINKSOUL website below.

Video of Colby here

“The “Milky Way Galaxy Shop” will host nearly 500 works that have filled the lockers and the landscape at Palomar College for years! Colby is possibly the most diligently creative artist we know. To see his work in person is really to take a trip to places in yourself you may not have visited for years… or even forgot existed. (Not to sound to forward… but we highly recommend bringing your checkbook too… not only is most of his work able to live indoors and out, but prices are recession friendly, and we’d say there’s a good chance you might fall in love with an alien in need of a new home…)”

You are invited to join in a round-table discussion of The Candy Store:

Saturday November 21 @ 7:00 PM

Agitprop (North Park)

2837 University Ave. (behind Glenn’s Market on Utah)

San Diego, CA 92104

contact@agitpropspace.org

The discussion will focus on the project (currently on view at La Casa del Tunel: Art Center in Tijuana) and issues surrounding the general state of healthcare today.   The panel will consist of the artists, a pharmacy owner from Tijuana, and others knowledgeable in the field.  Attendees are encouraged to share their experiences navigating the system and thoughts on issues ranging from health insurance to the marketing of pharmaceuticals and current trends of medicating children with powerful mood altering drugs.  Select objects from The Candy Store will also be on view in the gallery.

“They (The Klines) also poke at the escalating trend of United States residents crossing borders to buy medication from Mexico and Canada that they cannot afford to buy in the States. The added facet of a drug-smuggling tunnel transformed into a cultural venue transformed into a drug store makes the project even more significant, meaningful, timely and edgy.”

-  Pasadena / San Gabriel Valley News Journal

The Candy Store (La dulcifies): Dispensing Truth

“The Candy Store” simultaneously attracts and repels viewers, exposes the inherent conflicts in the international healthcare industry, and the legalities and illegalities in the world of pharmaceuticals.   The Candy Store is a retail space featuring “inconsumable products” made out of controlled substances (a.g. tobacco Teddy bears and Vioxx ceramic candies) adding meaningful visual spectacle and humor to the dialogue surrounding healthcare issues and bridging boundaries between art, science, sociology and activism.

Agitprop moves into a new phase by illustrating some of the work it has done in the past and asking you to participate in future projects by being part of a “brain trust”. This installation addresses issues of social economics, art markets, commodities trading, and community engagement.

 

In “Brain Trust”, Agitprop  turns corporate and art world institutional conventions on their head as a method of generating support for projects based on connectivity and community at the scale of the neighborhood. “Brain Trust” asks people to become “investors” in Agitprop. Agitprop is a space in North Park  that attempts to blur the lines between individual art practice, the Studio, the Gallery and the Neighborhood.

The Agitprop “Brain Trust” is established through “Brain Blocks”, an edition of 1000 concrete sculptures that, when purchased, act as “stock” in Agitprop. “Brain Blocks” simultaneously reference the art market, commodities trading and the “Cube” as an art historical sculptural form. Each sculpture takes the shape of a 4¼ inch cube that resembles the surface pattern of the human brain. Sculptural “shareholders” will become facilitators of Agitprop’s upcoming projects and will be asked in the future for feedback on these same projects. Many of these projects do not readily fit into conventional gallery settings. Past projects include the Agitprop space itself, literature readings, Art Tap Outs I & II (live critiques in the form of underground pugilism), artwork in empty storefronts, collaborations with other neighborhood entities etc.

The initiation of Agitprop as a space, and subsequently the “Brain Trust” project, stems from an examination and response to current art-supportive structures. Contemporary art tends to take primarily two approaches in the distribution of the works of artists: art works commodified through commercial galleries and dealers and/or; non-commercial works whose funding through universities and museums, when traced backwards, eventually leads to a corporate source. This exhibition asks the question “Is it possible to have a local practice supported by those who that practice targets?”

In addition to the “Brain Blocks” portion of the exhibition there will be several single day events over the duration of the exhibition including a walking tour of North Park discussing residual spaces, self-portrait photography sessions, free soup and more… A calendar of these events will be available at the exhibition as well as more info in postings here on agitpropspace.org.

We all have a lot of things laying around.  Detritus is an attempt to reexamine those utilitarian objects that are often used and simultaneously overlooked.  The table holds twenty palm sized everyday objects carved out of marble.   This piece was completed in 2005.
