TELEPATHIC DANCE PARTY
Opening of Paranoia Places Its Faith In Exposure at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard, September 13 to October 7, sponsored by the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies. Curated by David Rodowick. Shown in conjunction with a new work by Michael Wang titled Differentiation Series.
DANCE PARTY PUBLIC, a new performance work by Jesse Aron Green and Hana van der Kolk, will be presented in April 2013 , sponsored by the Peter Ivers Visiting Artist Program and the Office for the Arts at Harvard.
"Consisting of over fifty paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and video-works, Paranoia Places Its Faith in Exposure will kick off a year of programming at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard, in celebration of the building's 50th anniversary. The title is borrowed from a poem of the same name by Brian Blanchfield, a friend and collaborator of Green's, who took the phrase from theorist Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's book Touching Feeling, which draws upon Paul Ricoeur's work on Sigmund Freud, who based much of his early research on paranoia upon the memoirs of Daniel Paul Schreber, the fin-de-siècle judge-turned-lunatic (who, it should be noted, provided the inspiration for Green's most well-known work to date, titled Ärztliche Zimmergymnastik, which had its premiere installation at Tate Modern in 2008). The title, like all of the work in the exhibition, is the means to an exploration of intellectual, artistic, historical, personal and narcotic influence, all within the bounds of Le Corbusier's landmark Carpenter Center, from which Green takes formal, material and stupefacient inspiration."

Opening of The Eye of the Collector at MAMbo, Bologna. Curated by Julia Draganović and Claudia Löffelholz LaRete Art Projects for Arte Fiera Art First. Featuring video works from the collection of Manuel de Santaren. The artist list includes Maria Josè Arjona, Niklas Goldbach, Jesse Aron Green, William Lamson, McCollum and Tarry, Hans Op de Beeck, Chrischa Venus Oswald, Luigi Presicce, Isabel Rocamora, Janaina Tschäpe.
From the curators: "The striking power of the visual that doesn’t need a word to explain itself – the video pieces in Manuel de Santaren’s collection live from this. They are the proof that bodies and images in movement are the essential elements of an effective language for this medium , it does not need much more. But the most difficult thing to achieve is simplicity. The small selection of videos chosen for the Eye of the Collector will present the variety of ways in which speechless moving images are able to generate amusement or admiration, emotion, tenderness or rejection, confusion or enlightenment!"
Opening of The Displaced Person at Invisible-Exports Gallery, New York, featuring work by Ron Athey, Walt Cassidy, Jesse Aron Green, Geof Oppenheimer, and Sue Williams.
"Public space is palimpsest, an accidental archive of imperious elements and refugee cultures, competing claims, misfits, dissidents, legacies and outcasts, all cast together and called, simultaneously, forward. But what goes by the name of renewal, in city life and politics, in arts and culture, is often just a flattening, a sorting, sometimes even an obliteration. The work gathered here, by five artists exploring the libidinous zone between public and intimate, sanctioned and condemned, suggests instead that displacement, exclusion, and alienation, as much as they are symptoms of social failure, can return as civic virtues. In fact, they must."
Attended the Wang Center for the Performing Arts 85th Anniversary Gala, and gave a speech about the importance of the arts for the youth of Boston. Reported in the Improper Bostonian.
Opening of Kuan Hwa's Yunxiang Gao Plays "Ambush on All Sides" for Pipa in the "Fourth Wall" series of video screenings at Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia, Pa. Curated by Jesse Aron Green for the months of February, June and November 2011, the series will feature videos curated by Cecilia Dougherty, Kevin McGarry and Elisabeth Subrin during the other months of the year.
Yunxiang Gao Plays "Ambush on All Sides" for Pipa focuses in part on how technical movements can demonstrate knowledge. The featured composition "Ambush on All Sides" for the Chinese lute, depicts an epic battle in 202 BC during the Warring States period in China, and the song is attributed to no individual composer and has no date of composition. It had historically been maintained solely by oral tradition and demonstration as part of the martial style repertoire, until the first version of its musical score was documented in the 1800's.
Kuan Hwa works with various media to question the paradigms of aesthetics with regard to globalism and historical memory. He has previously shown installations and performance work in Japan, Italy, and here in the US, and holds BA degrees in World Literature and Studio Art from UCLA. He is currently in the MFA program at UC Irvine with an emphasis in Critical Theory.

opening of jane jin-kaisen and guston sondin-kung's the woman, the orphan, and the tiger in the "fourth wall" series of video screenings at vox populi gallery, philadelphia, pa. curated by jesse aron green for the months of february, june and november 2011, the series will feature videos curated by cecilia dougherty, kevin mcgarry and elisabeth subrin during the other months of the year.
The Woman, The Orphan, and The Tiger is an endeavor to re-think dominant narratives of international adoption from South Korea to the United States and Europe by situating international adoption within a longer history of military and patriarchal violence against women and children. The film spans from the era of Japanese colonization of South Korea from 1910-1945, to the emergence of the Cold War, through South Korea's militarized modernity, and the permanent installment of US hegemony in South Korea from the 1950s onwards. The film explores how bio-political violence onto women's and children's bodies have been mobilized for national security and economic growth and became central in geopolitical negotiations between South Korea, the United States, and Japan. This part of world history has been systematically silenced, but largely due to efforts of the 'diaspora' it is beginning to surface and counter dominant narratives in South Korea and in the West.
Jane Jin Kaisen (1980) is a visual artist working in a project-based manner in the mediums of film, performance, and installation around questions concerning political subjectivity and the formation of collective memory from a postcolonial and transnational feminist perspective. She was adopted from Korea to Denmark and received her education from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, The Whitney Museum Independent Study Program in New York, and The Interdisciplinary Studio Art Program at UCLA in Los Angeles. She is co-founder of the artist collectives UFOLab (Unidentified Foreign Object laboratory) and Chamber of Public Secrets. She has screened her films, exhibited, and performed at venues such as Incheon Women Artists Biennale, Gana Art Gallery New York, Kyoto Arts Center, Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival, FIKE International Film Festival in Portugal, Hong Kong International Short Film & video Festival, 798 Art Zone in Beijing, The National Gallery in Indonesia, 798 Factory in Beijing, The 2nd Deformes Biennale at Gallery Metropolitana in Chile, and the 25th International Asia Pacific Film Festival in Los Angeles.
Guston Sondin-Kung (1982) has been working as a visual artist primarily in experimental film and performance. His artwork focuses on how systems of knowledge are constructed through emerging contested histories. This investigation is derived from a transnational and postcolonial perspective with the aim of generating alternative genealogies. He has exhibited his work at Nikolaj Kunsthal, CCA Kitakyushu Museum, MOCA Geffen Contemporary, Scandinavia House New York and SolwayJones Gallery Los Angeles. He has also received grants from The J. Paul Getty Museum, Yip Harburg Foundation, The James Irvine Foundation, The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation and The Ford Foundation.

opening of michelle dizon's empire in the "fourth wall" series of video screenings at vox populi gallery, philadelphia, pa. curated by jesse aron green for the months of february, june and november 2011, the series will feature videos curated by cecilia dougherty, kevin mcgarry and elisabeth subrin during the other months of the year.
empire (abs-cbn) comes from dizon's on-going cycle of works, empire, in fragments, which deal with the philippines' colonial and neo-colonial history in an era of globalization. the videos that comprise the installation include shots of the movie theater at the former us military bases, shots of the walls that enclose the former seat of spanish colonial power, shots of recently built infrastructure by the us on the southern war-torn island of mindanao, and shots of the media conglomerate abs-cbn's broadcast tower during a new year's celebration. all of these fragments weave together a spatial and temporal experience of the question of empire as it continues in the global south in general and in the philippines in particular. empire (abs-cbn) documents the philippine media conglomerate abs-cbn's broadcast tower during a new year's celebration in 2009. the work recalls warhol's empire in which warhol filmed the empire state building and slowed the film to a duration of eight hours. what is different in dizon's work is that the "empire" is not the name of the building, but rather, a political history in the context of the philippine nation state and its colonial and neo-colonial history.
