Francis Al  s  As Long As I m Walking

If his work questions the link between artistic act and political intervention, the artist always works by allusions, with remarkable precision and economy of means, preferring poetic polysemy to frontal political commentary, favoring the ...

An art of play, pedestrianism and participation: on Alÿs' abiding motifs Published to accompany a major solo exhibition by Francis Alÿs (born 1959) at the Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne in 2021, this monograph presents an overview of the Belgian-born artist's work in video, painting and drawing, with special emphasis on a central theme of his practice, the act of walking. At the intersection of art, architecture and social practice, his artworks explore urban tensions and the geopolitical stakes of the spaces he explores. From urban strolls to exploring territories and their borders, Alÿs chronicles everyday rituals, habits and experiences through poetic films and works on paper. Among the many projects highlighted in this publication are Alÿs' works related to his Afghan experience and his Children's Gamesseries in which the imaginary spaces of childhood join the artist's poetics of space. Edited and introduced by MCBA Lausanne curator Nicole Schweizer, the book features essays by Julia Bryan-Wilson, Professor of History of Art, University of California, Berkeley; Luis Pérez-Oramas, independent curator and writer, New York; and Judith Rodenbeck, Associate Professor, Department of Media and Cultural Studies, University of California, Riverside.

This is primarily the story of the long-time friendship between Dorothea Dix and Dr. Stribling as told by them in their unedited letters. The letters are preceded by summaries of their life experiences at the time their friendship began. Dix was the most politically active and well-traveled woman her time. She enlarged or founded thirty-two mental hospitals in fifteen states, and other countries, fifteen schools for the feeble-minded, a school for the blind, and several training schools for nurses. Dix successfully petitioned Congress to create the Government Hospital for the Insane in Washington, D. C. Dix petitioned Congress in 1854 to sell twelve million acres of public land whose proceeds would befit the insane, blind and paupers throughout the nation. After it was passed by Congress but then vetoed by Congress, a devastated Dix, too ill to work, traveled to England to recuperate. By the late 60s Western State and similar institutions were filled with incurable patients, leaving little room for those who could be cured. By 1871, only eight of Striblings patients were expected to be cured, twenty-six others were doubtful, and the remaining three hundred and six patients were decidedly unfavorable. The situation was depressing for Stribling, his staff and the caretakers who constantly drew on their skills, energies, and goodness of heart to soothe patients' depressed spirits and replace their delusions with pleasant thoughts. It would have been far easier to restore curable patients who would be in the hospital only for the brief duration of their illness. Stribling died in 1974. Because of his crusade to cure the insane in the South, he had been one of the most influential Virginians of his time. Dix continued her crusade until the Civil war when she became head of the Union nurses. Afterwards she resumed her efforts to help those who could not help themselves. Dix died on July 17, 1887 at the New Jersey State Hospital at Trenton.

The recently founded (2004) and very actively acquisitive Verbund Collection integrates contemporary American and European art with works created since 1970. Its two central areas of interest are pieces exploring ideas of performance or space and place. Under the rubric of performance, Verbund, funded by the German power company of the same name, has gathered a substantial block of early Cindy Sherman, along with works by Valerie Export, Birgit Jürgenssen, Francesca Woodman, Sarah Lucas, Urs Lüthi, Gilbert and George and Gillian Wearing. Under the rubric of "spaces/places," holdings range from the works of Gordon Matta-Clark, which intervene in existing architectural structures, through Fred Sandback's Minimalist drawings in thread, to the organically formed objects of Ernest Neto, and include Louise Lawler, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Jeff Wall, Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler, Simon Starling, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Gabriel Orozco and Loan Nguyen.

Contemporary artists beginning with Guy Debord and Richard Long have returned againand again to the walking motif. Debord and his friends tracked the urban flows of Paris; Longtrampled a path in the grass and snapped a picture of the result ( A Line Made byWalking). Mapping is a way for us to locate ourselves in the world physically, culturally,or psychologically; Debord produced maps like collages that traced the "psychogeography"of Paris. Today, the convergence of global networks, online databases, and new tools forlocation-based mapping coincides with a resurgence of interest in walking as an art form. InWalking and Mapping, Karen O'Rourke explores a series of walking/mapping projectsby contemporary artists. Some chart "emotional GPS"; some use GPS for creating"datascapes" while others use their legs to do "speculative mapping." Many workwith scientists, designers, and engineers. O'Rourke offers close readings of these works -- many ofwhich she was able to experience firsthand -- and situates them in relation to landmark works fromthe past half-century. She shows that the infinitesimal details of each of these projects take onmore significance in conjunction with others. Together, they form a new entity, a dynamic wholegreater than the sum of its parts. By alternating close study of selected projects with a broaderview of their place in a bigger picture, Walking and Mapping itself maps acomplex phenomena.

American International Pictures was in many ways the "missing link" between big-budget Hollywood studios, "poverty-row" B-movie factories and low-rent exploitation movie distributors. AIP first targeted teen audiences with science fiction, horror and fantasy, but soon grew to encompass many genres and demographics--at times, it was indistinguishable from many of the "major" studios. From Abby to Zontar, this filmography lists more than 800 feature films, television series and TV specials by AIP and its partners and subsidiaries. Special attention is given to American International Television (the TV arm of AIP) and an appendix lists the complete AITV catalog. The author also discusses films produced by founders James H. Nicholson and Samuel Z. Arkoff after they left the company.
