Biography Explores Genius, Complexity Of Artist James Castle
A new biography titled James Castle: His Life and Art explores the life,
genius and motivation behind one of Idaho's greatest enigmas. Written by
Tom Trusky, a Castle expert, director of the Hemingway Western Studies
Center and Boise State University English professor, the book contains rare
documents and photographs, exclusive interviews with Castle's family and
childhood friends and the testimony of contemporary art and medical
experts. Labeled for his entire life as deaf, mute, illiterate and
mentally challenged, Castle is now thought to have actually been autistic.
Born in 1899 in the mountain town of Garden Valley, Idaho, he was the fifth
of seven children. He never learned to speak, had a limited ability to read
and write and he seemingly refused to be Taught to sign. His primary form
of communication was the thousands of drawings and illustrations he
produced during his lifetime. Houses, domestic scenes, family members and
friends were endlessly rendered in what some have termed a primitive "folk
art" style from crude tools and supplies - ink made from soot and saliva,
pens fashioned from twigs or sticks, and canvases scavenged from scrap
paper, cardboard, books and the many catalogs that flowed through his
parents' general store and post office. Even when family, friends, curators
and artists purchased paints and brushes for him, late in his career, he
preferred to make his own tools. Amazingly, although unschooled, he was
able to grasp the concept of several artistic principles, including
vanishing point perspective. Largely undiscovered and unappreciated during
his lifetime, he is now considered by many art historians to prefigure a
number of the major schools and -isms of 20th century art. After decades
of making unrecognized art in an icehouse and abandoned chicken shed,
Castle began making "Dreamhouses" in the 1940s. These small drawings, if
black and white, were fancifully fashioned homes with polka-dot roofs and
tweed, plaid or herringbone siding. For color "Dreamhouses," Castle used
apricot pits to scrape the wax coating from dairy product containers. The
artist would then wet colored paper and laboriously rub the tinctures into
the feathery, scraped container surfaces, creating vibrant glowing replicas
of the residences that took root in his imagination. His family realized he
was trying to communicate with them and in 1963 purchased a small mobile
home using proceeds from the sale of his works. Castle, who moved to the
Boise Valley with his family in 1924, worked in this "Dreamhouse" for more
than a decade before he died in Boise in 1977. In addition to his
drawings, Castle filled hundreds of books with illustrations during his
lifetime. The most rare and intriguing are his Icehouse Books. Found in an
icehouse in Garden Valley, the handmade book art volumes have survived
fire, ice, decay, demolition and indifference - some even survived the
Teton Dam disaster in 1974. Another set of four books, known as the Early
Attic Collection, was recently discovered in a box of tattered books and
catalogs purchased for $10 at a Caldwell estate auction. Those books are
now being stored in the climate-controlled archives at Boise State's
Albertsons Library. They will be unveiled at an international conference
this fall on the East Coast. In his capacity as Castle's biographer, Trusky
has written articles in Biblio, Raw Vision, Folk Art, Journal of Artists'
Books and The Idaho Review. With Boise State communication professor Peter
Lutze, he directed and wrote the video documentary Dreamhouse: The Art &
Life of James Castle for Painted Smiles Press. In 2000, Dreamhouse
premiered on Idaho Public Television. As well, Trusky has curated Castle
art book exhibitions in Canada, England, New York, Chicago and other U.S.

James Castle: His Life and Art (190 pages, hardback and paperback, $29.95
and $19.95, more than 100 black and white and color illustrations) is
published by the Idaho Center for the Book. Proceeds from the book's sale
pay for ICB printing expenses.

WASHINGTON, DC - The Experimental Party rolls into New York on Saturday,
August 21st just ahead of the Republican National Convention with the
opening of its Propaganda Hospitality Suite at LUXE Gallery, 24 West 57th
Street, NYC from 6 - 8 PM. Politicos, press, protestors, Republicans,
performance artists, and the public will gather for a first look at the
Experimental Party DisInformation Center, a state-of-the-art media
installation presented by the US Department of Art & Technology. The
exhibition runs through Saturday, September 4th, when it will close with a
Post-Mortem Lounge from 6 - 8 PM. Regular hours for the installation are
Tuesday through Saturday from 11 AM to 6 PM.

York for an evening of pre-convention revelry, featuring special
appearances by Axis of Eve, Billionaires for Bush, Armed Artists of America
(AAA), USA Exquisite Corpse, The Secretary, and the Virtual Voice of
America singing "God Bless America." All artists and citizens are
encouraged to "bring your own propaganda" (BYOP).

Regarding the Experimental Party DisInformation Center, US DAT Secretary

intervention' in order to subvert the ensuing propaganda of the Republicans
with our own techniques of media and illusion. Our decision will show that
if you want to carry out anarchic entertainment for the nation, there's no
place better in the world to do it than New York City during the Republican
National Convention!"

The US Department of Art and Technology is the United States principal
conduit for facilitating the artist's need to extend aesthetic inquiry into
the broader culture where ideas become real action. It also serves the
psychological and spiritual well-being of all Americans by supporting
cultural efforts that provide immunity from the extension of new media
technologies into the social sphere.

About the Experimental Party
The Experimental Party - the "party of experimentation" - is an initiative
that has been formed to activate citizens across the country in an effort
to bring the artists' message to center stage of the political process.
This is a political awakening, "representation through virtualization" is
the major political thrust - it is the driving force.\

This event is part of the Imagine Festival of Arts, Issues & Ideas, a
citywide cultural festival, Aug 28 - Sept 2, designed to inspire, instigate
and support civic engagement through the arts.


3. Eileen Myles, FF Alumn, at St. Mark's Church, Sept. 22 and 29, 8 pm

The workshop from "Hell", a new one act opera, with libretto by Eileen
Myles, FF Alumn, will have two performances, Sept. 22 & 29 (both
Wednesdays) at 8PM, St. Mark's Church, NYC.


4. G.H. Hovagimyan, FF Alumn, at Groningen Museum, Aug. 23 and more.

Rant/ Rant Back/ Back Rant is an ongoing performance work by Peter Sinclair
and G.H. Hovagimyan. The work was performed in 2003 at La Gaite du Lyrique
in Paris, France and the Splitski festival in Split, Croatia. Documentation
can be viewed at < For the 2004 series the work will be
performed in the Netherlands August 23rd at the Groningen Museum and August
26th at Steim in Amsterdam.

There are two performers; the ranter and the processor. In English the word
"rant" means (verb) to talk in a noisy, excited or declamatory fashion or
(noun) a bombastic, extravagant speech. The processor listens to the ranter
and grabs live audio which he outputs to loud speakers. The ranter hears
the processed sound clips and responds. The performance can be likened to
to a musical jam session using digital signal processing. In society you
often see ranters on the street. They talk about the current events or
shout about people in power etc. They often speak the truth. We listen with
one ear while pretending not to hear. The two performers process the
information in a feedback loop, in real time. What then is the content?
It's information gleaned from TV, newspapers, conspiracy theories, hearsay,
paranoid delusions etc. The raw material for the 2003 rants are presented
in a blog
< For the 2004 rants a new blog
has been set up <

Reverend Billy invites you to marry or renew your vows under the auspices
of The Church of the First Amendment on the Great Lawn in Central Park,
starting at 1:00 PM on Sunday August 29th. To find the Great Lawn go west
of the Met or east of the Natural History Museum, even with 82nd Street.

As a certified "marriage officiant," registered with the City Clerk of New
York City, the Reverend will sign your marriage papers with the authority
vested in him by, uh, a multi-gender god.

When you enter the lawn look for the white cloth steeple and the yellow
robes of the Gospel Choir. Bring your own vows, but our Church requires a
recitation of the First Amendment during the ceremony. You can practice
repeating the phrase at our Tuesday evening "First Amendment Mob" (6:30 to
7 PM, down in the Ground Zero Path Station.)

media experimentation. The series explores the vitalizing role of music to
the development of their expression in many multi-media formats. The
artists introduce their work, followed by a conversation with a respondent.

September 23: Laurie Anderson and Wallace Shawn
Laurie Anderson flourishes in the disparate worlds of music, the
avant-garde, and mainstream art, commanding a "technology" style honed over
a decades-long career. Respondent Wallace Shawn wrote and acted in the play
and film My Dinner with Andre (1981). Other acting roles include Vanya on
42nd Street (1994), Sex and the City, and the Woody Allen's soon to be
released film Melinda and Melinda.

written by Charlie Kaufman. Respondent Ed Halter is a film critic with the
Village Voice. He is director and guiding light of the New York Underground
Film Festival.

October 7: Brian Eno and Todd Haynes
Installation artist, producer, and rock and electronic musician Brian Eno
has worked with media for many years. His career encompasses painter,
member of the '70s band Roxy Music, collaborator with Robert Fripp and
David Byrne, and a trendsetter of "new music." Respondent Todd Haynes began
making independent films in the 1980s and has written and directed feature
films Safe (1995), Velvet Goldmine (1998), and Far from Heaven (2002).

Tomon, Barbara Weissberger, Krzysztof Wodiczko,
Emna Zghal

An exhibition of new and recent visual works in a variety of media, Watch
What We Say presents a mix of emerging and established artists who address
pressing political issues of the moment in poetic, subversive, emotional
and clear-eyed terms.

In the weeks following the attacks of September 11, 2001, President Bush's
press secretary Ari Fleischer replied to criticism of administration policy
by warning that "all Americans need to watch what they say, watch what they
do". This challenge to free expression emphasized the climate of war,
repression, and xenophobia that continues to run through American
society. By speaking directly to this web of issues that remain
intertwined and interdependent, the artists selected for this exhibition
present works that testify to the power of creative thought in the face of
overwhelming odds. For this show, timed to coincide with the Republican
National Convention in NYC, artists Joy Garnett, James Tomon, Carrie Moyer,
Jerry Kearns and Robbie Conal show works that take on images of power via
painterly construction and de-construction of mediated images. Jenny Polak
and Krzysztof Wodiczko look closely at the immigrant experience, while
Wlliam Pope L. and Dread Scott examine racial relations in historical and
contemporary terms, and Peter Scott's 'mirror' image "explores the
interplay between the relentless marketing of fear and the selling of
comfort". Taking a more emotional aproach, Christopher Knowles presents a
simple and moving interpretation of color coded alert levels, along with
Leonard Silverberg's carefully composed ink washes of wandering displaced
persons, Joyce Kozloff's meticulous watercolor map of the partition of 1948
Palestine/Israel, and Barbara Weissberger's humorous and disturbing
corporeal forms. Ann Messner's newspaper vending machine installation
presents a hopeful alternative by dispensing free copies of 'un
conventional heroes', a narrative of personal courage and
dissent. Rounding out the show are video interventions by Jim Costanzo,
off-site performance by Carla Repice, live internet radio broadcast by
Erika deVries and a Virtual Sit-In of the RNC by Electronic Disturbance
Theater (Ricardo Dominguez, Carmin Karasic , Brett Stalbaum, Stefan
Wray). Looking directly at extreme circumstances, these artists project
back lyrical responses that are complex, beautiful, and
meaningful. Difficult questions are posed eloquently, with respect to the
myriad of possible answers. Watch What We Say is curated by Marc Lepson,
an installation and graphic artist whose previous curatorial projects
include Art During Wartime (co-organized with Dread Scott) shown at IT IN
Space NYC, Spring 2003. His work is on view at the Brooklyn Museum's "Open
House" exhibition through August 15, and can be seen at

On Wednesday, August 11, Harvestworks will again present a viewing of F.W.
Murnau's amazing classic silent film Faust (1926) with a soundtrack by
artist-in-residence Ursel Schlicht. Exploring the aesthetics of both early
20th century European avant-garde and post-Cageian extended piano playing,
Schlicht has created a musical synthesis that reshapes the spontaneity of
traditional silent film improvisation into a compelling new soundtrack.

German-born pianist, composer and improviser Ursel Schlicht explores
jazz-derived styles as well as experimental forms of music. She has
collaborated with German, Australian, American, African, Spanish, Russian
and Mexican artists at festivals around the world including the What is
Jazz? Festival in New York, the Festival del´Arte Contemporaneo in Mexico,
the Melbourne International Women´s Jazz Festival, the Jaroslawl Jazz
Festival in Russia, and the documenta in Kassel, Germany.

She has written compositions and arrangements for small and large jazz
ensembles, new music ensembles, improvisational scores for silent films and
music for dance theater. Fostering intercultural exchange and
collaborations has become an important focus of her work. In 2002, she
created Ex Tempore, initially a week-long international collaboration
featuring artists from Germany, the US, India, Eritrea and Afghanistan
(Gabriele Hasler, Hakim Ludin, Salamat Schiftah, Jamie Baum, Tomas Ulrich,
Ravish Momin, Brandon Terzic, Tadios Tesfu), which will tour in the US and
Canada this September. In 2003, Ursel Schlicht toured Australia, where she
collaborated extensively with Australian saxophonist Adam
Simmons. Current ensembles in New York include her duo with Reuben
Radding, her duo with Robert Dick, and her trio with Ken Filiano and Lou

Schlicht holds a doctorate from the University of Hamburg. She has taught
at the Universities of Kassel and Hamburg, Rutgers University, Columbia
University, and is currently teaching at Ramapo College, NJ.

Her work has been supported by grants and fellowships from: Harvestworks,
Music Omi International Artist Residency (Resident 2001, Curator 2002),
Experimental Intermedia, Meet the Composer, Goethe Institut, University of
Kassel, Kulturstiftung der Kasseler Sparkasse, City of Kassel, State of
