In Philadelphia's art world today, and elsewhere in the country, there exists a strong group of artists hailing from the western suburbs of Philadelphia. Over the years, they have stuck together, supported and inspired each other. 'Something in the Water' is an exhibition that acknowledges and celebrates the extraordinary amount of accomplished artists that sprung from this small area.
Although the group assembled for this show in no way represents all of the creative people from the Delaware County, it shows a strong cross section of the talent that emerged from this area. One can only look at this group and wonder... There must be something in the water...

The warpath stretches seemingly endlessly before us, though it requires a trained eye to see. In the existing order and structure of civilization and skyline, a latent channel can be perceived, of smoke,
and of ruin. A subtle impression superimposed upon the present landscape, existing only in its future, a deep divide strewn with rubble and with corpses, enjoying the limitlessness of an impending permanence. A path that Bit Shifter will carve, like a poem inscribed into the earth in the murderous script of a brutal god.

According to one 17th-century physician, hysteria was "the most common of diseases except fevers" and became the most frequently diagnosed disease in history.
This multimedia installation explores portrayals of hysterical women from film and television history. A broad range of source materials will craft the perfect chamber of suffering that will strike a dark familiarity with anyone who has grown up with these images from the American media.
The current art show at 111 Minna is Dimensional Overload will be coming down this week and making room for ALARM Magazines 10th Anniversary Art show. There will be an opening reception this Thursday Dec, 1st from 5pm-2am.
Creative Time presents
An Art Basel Miami Beach Preview Presentation of
Marco Brambilla's film Sync
The Raleigh Hotel (rooms and lobby)
1775 Collins Ave. Miami Beach
November 30 - December 4, 2006
Creative Time cordially invites you to fluff (the pillow), grab the remote, and turn on channel 2 for your private in-room screening of Marco Brambilla's scintillating film Sync. Didn't get a room? Do it in the Raleigh Lobby. Sync will play for the public all day and all night, November 30 - December 4.
Sampling sex scenes from Hollywood and adult films, Brambilla tosses out the old formulaic treatment to create a new work that builds to a state of sensory overload.
Creative Time is proud to present this preview presentation with thanks to Andre Balazs at The Raleigh Hotel. Sync is part of a two-channel video installation to be shown @ Christopher Grimes Gallery in Los Angeles in January 2006. Staying in NY? More to come here soon!
Matt Madden’s Exercises in Style is a series of engrossing one-page comics that tell the same story in a variety of ways. Inspired by Raymond Queneau’s 1947 work of the same title, a mainstay of creative writing courses that The New York Times Book Review called “truly original” upon its initial publication, Madden’s project demonstrates the expansive range of possibilities available to all storytellers. The project developed a cult following from its inception in 1998, and in early 2004, Madden launched www.EXERCISESINSTYLE.com, a site showcasing the project, finding a broad audience and immediate critical attention and praise. The website was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
99 WAYS TO TELL A STORY is a collection of the complete “Exercises in Style” project, illustrating all 99 different graphic approaches to telling the same story. Readers are taken on an enlightening tour—sometimes surprising, always amusing—through the world of the story.
Moderator Bruce Iglauer (Alligator Records) and panelists Nan Warshaw (Bloodshot Records), Jim Powers (Minty Fresh Records), Tony Brummell (Victory Records), and Mike Friedman (Premonition Records) will discuss what differentiates an independent label from a major corporate label, how to determine what a label does, and if it is the right label for that particular musician. Participants also learn how to win a label contract, what to expect when that happens, and what it takes to start your own record label. Presented by Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Chicago Music Commission, sponsored by Columbia College and the Chicago Federation of Musicians.

As you know, on October 8th, tragedy struck Pakistan in the most horrific proportions in the country's history. An earthquake measuring 7.6 on the Richter scale has led to widespread destruction in the north. With over 86,000 feared dead and a much higher number injured and homeless, urgent and steady action is required.
Chowrangi Magazine, a new print magazine for the Pakistani-American community, will be holding a fundraiser on the evening of Dec 8th at the Tagore Gallery in New York - both to mark our third issue and to raise money for post-earthquake reconstruction through the NGO ibtida (www.ibtida.org). You can view our mandate, bios and board at www.chowrangi.org. Our aim is to be a thinking publication, to encourage debate and discussion on social and political issues within the community and present the diversity of Pak-Am society, particularly within the realms of arts and culture.
I bought myself a Porous Walker action figure. It'll have to do battle against our Metal Gear Solid guys. There are only a few left so grab one while you can! It'll only put you out $5.00 so you don't even have to think about it. If you miss out on this opportunity, look to grab some original crap for $10.00. Porous' artwork will make anyone feel warm and fuzzy during the winter holidays.
Join Tim Biskup for a party to celebrate the release of two new prints and the premier of several new original works of art. The evening get together will take place at Bispop Gallery, in Old Town Pasadena. Drinks and snacks will be served.
