OVERVIEW OF THE NATURE OF ORDER

On the weekend of August 18 - 20, 2017 BOFFO will present its annual Fire Island Performance Festival: a weekend of dance, performance, and music responding to the island’s unique social and geographic context. BOFFO’s third iteration of the Performance Festival is dedicated to continuing the dialogue amongst generations in the queer community. Particularly, we have chosen artists that highlight pride in gay, lesbian, and trans history by reinventing art forms that are integral to queer culture. The artists participating in this program have demonstrated strong interests in engaging queer communities as audiences, as well as points of inspiration: What does it mean to create a work of art "for" a queer community? What does that community look like? How are queer communities evolving in response to the current political climate? Building from these questions, through the performances, we seek to create dialogue around and highlight underrepresented voices.

This exciting exhibition represents 16 artists from Argentina, Brazil, Columbia and Venezuela that explore current artistic, political and cultural discourses taking place in South America. Curated by Christopher Grimes of Los Angeles, the show will also consider the idea of South America as a forgotten continent (as the title suggests) within the context of the Western art world, and how issues are still formed, shaped and processed through a colonial history.

And the style was far too whimsical and light-hearted for the exteriors of religious and civic buildings.

This exhibition of videos by Cuban artists working worldwide invites contemplation of what it means to occupy (a home, a plot of land, a city, a society…) and the relationship between occupying and building and the concept of the work of art in today’s global culture. Three interconnected segments pose the question of how to reinvent a language for imagining what is public, private and intimate in a culture like Cuba’s, where civil society has been supplanted by the State.

Here is acclaimed architect Christopher Alexander's four-volume masterwork: the result of 27 years of research and a lifetime of profoundly original thinking.

Making Sense brings together four artists who make distinctive contributions to contemporary painting. Through a range of approaches, they explore painting as a medium, a set of techniques, an historical institution and a framework for making sense. Inspired by WWII-era Enigma decoding machines, Rochelle Feinstein takes on puzzling figures of speech, inscrutable ideas and encrypted social codes as challenges for painterly representation. Using a method she calls “Random Select,” Deborah Grant creates imagined, non-linear narrative encounters between historical artists, interwoven with her own varied humanistic interests from literature to religion. Iva Gueorguieva adapts the visual language of modern abstraction to create tumultuous, energetic spaces on canvas; her process of building up paintings by layering torn cloth with pigment and color washes produces spontaneous, dynamic compositions rooted in personal stories. Dona Nelson’s two-sided paintings, stained and layered with strands of cheesecloth, invite viewers to encounter them as freestanding forms. Making Sense includes new works produced by Feinstein and Gueorguieva at Graphicstudio, the 45-year-old collaborative printmaking and sculpture atelier of the USF Institute for Research In Art.
