Beverly Fishman: Fantastic Voyage - 6PM - 8PM

Library Street Collective (1260 Library St, Detroit)

Please join us for the opening reception of Beverly Fishman: Fantastic Voyage on Saturday, November 16, 2019 from 6-8pm. Between 1985 and 1987, Fishman created many large-scale pastel drawings that used graphic forms and mysterious color to depict human bodies as surreal biomorphic worlds, “bodyscapes” fraught with conflict and violence. Expressionistically rendered, the corporeal environments Fishman explored were dark and cosmic, worked and reworked by play of divergent forces evoking biological change. Like the submarine crew of Fantastic Voyage, the 1966 American science-fiction film she loved as a child, Fishman imagined an ideal spectator shrunk down to the size of a microbe and injected into a body, charged with an urgent mission of discovery and rescue. Highly aware of the masculinist ideologies surrounding the return of painting in the early 1980s, Fishman employed the medium of drawing in this series to undermine neo-expressionism from within. Evoking the sizes and to some extent the content of recent abstract-figurative painting in Europe and the United States, Fishman invited her viewers to turn their gazes inward, not towards any pure or self-aware “subjectivity,” but rather towards the unconscious and (non-human) material forces that at any moment could disrupt and undermine their conscious egos. Uniting the individuals in an unending stream of brute biological change that transcended all pretenses of individuality or subjectivity, Fishman’s drawings evoke the chemical, physical, physiological, and psychological “materials” that—before any process of socialization—make us who we are.

SUSAN OKLA art show - 7PM - 11PM

UFO Factory (2110 Trumbull St, Detroit)

Susan Okla creates visceral and quasi-narrative surrealist images that explore, dissect, and raise questions about trauma, sexuality, memory, and pain. Her work examines the multifaceted nature of desire, fear, repulsion, anger, and corporeality in various forms. Tension by way of absurd juxtaposition is used as a means of ironic and subversive deconstruction. Okla uses the physical body as an analog to the trappings and vulnerabilities of the internal and psychological self: just as physical wounds are opened, drained, expressed, sutured, scarred, or infected, so too are emotional wounds. Rife with symbolic and referential imagery, her collage-drawings are amalgamations of found, referenced, and reappropriated source materials. The layering of her imagery echoes the amorphous and nonlinear nature of memory as it is excavated through the process of psychoanalysis. For Okla, art-making echoes this same process: a means of working through subconscious terror while re-experiencing the lost magic of childhood. By mining mythology, physiology, allegory, and the chasm of the subconscious, her work examines the putative dichotomy of childhood and adulthood, and the nebulous overlap of human and animal.

Thollem with projections by ACVilla | Lumino - 8PM - 11:30PM

Trinosophes (1464 Gratiot ave, Detroit)

What can we say about Thollem that we haven't said before? Maybe that this amazing virtuoso pianist and improviser has a new record out with the also amazing heavyweights Nels Cline and Michael Wimberly? Or that this current Detroit residency is featuring a multitude of collaborators and projects connected to this city? There will be various iterations happening all week, but it all culminates with Saturday night! You can checkout the multitude of Thollem's collaborations with people from other parts of the world (from Pauline Oliveros to Mike Watt to William Parker to Jad Fair to Nate Wooley) at www.thollem.com
Tonight Thollem will be performing electric with the projections of his partner ACVilla. www.thollem.com/withacvilla as well as some new material he's developing this week.

Also on the bill is the debut of Detroit's newest contemporary chamber music ensemble, Lumino. Clarinetist Lisa Raschiatore and violinist Sonia Lee have made names for themselves in classical and New Music circles in Detroit and beyond. They recently met playing my chamber music and decided to start an ensemble together- adding young up-and-comer John Etsell at the piano. Ranging from 20th century modernism to contemporary music, Lumino is just the sort of high-execution, high-ambition ensemble that Detroit's chamber music world so desperately needs.

Doors 8 pm; $12.

Rapport
Weed Nap
ALL AGES

About: Rapport - In The Dark
The musical incantations of Rapport are the offshoots of Maddy Wilde’s longstanding belief she was unable to be the main songwriter of any music project. The humour of this broken belief lies in the boldness of uncertainty, a feeling that follows Wilde throughout her debut EP, In The Dark. Written and produced in Toronto by Maddy Wilde, Kurt Marble and Mike Pereira, In The Dark is a true expression of Toronto’s unending output of genre bending pop music.
