“Let us, here, make
progressive and best
painting, each one as he
is fit to do, and merely
ask: What and when is
painting, in a critical
sense?... How can the
people agree on what is
American style, if the
painters themselves, and
by their work, disagree
profoundly as to what
real panting itself is!“

Lady K-Fever (Kathleena Howie) is a New York
inter-disciplinary artist and curator from
Canada working with painting, installation,
photography, performance and public art
projects.
In 2003, she was invited as the first Canadian
woman to paint at the legendary Graffiti Hall
of Fame in East Harlem, New York.
“The artist’s role is to
tell stories through
personal and collective
reflections and
responses and to raise
questions. The artist is
a messenger of
universal truth who
challenges others to
see and acknowledge
what they might not
want to [to see].”

Benefit (my unemployed life series)
2011
Medium: mixed media with yarn
Faced with my own lack
of steady employment,
I decided to take up a
needle, channel my
grandmother, and make
work about my life of
right now. The series
took over a year, 6-9
hours each day, over
90,000 stitches.

Control (my unemployed life series)
2011
Medium: mixed media with yarn
My grandmother
worked as seamstress
in textile factories in
the 1940s. I had grown
up learning and
watching from her,
helping out when
needed. It was a
passion that stayed
with me in life and
translated into My
Unemployed Life series.
Have you witnessed unemployment
before?
…some folks receive “unemployment checks” IF and only
IF their job allows for it.
Unemployed folks require various services to find
EMPLOYMENT.
How does it affect people?
…”lapse” in employment (period of time when you
don’t have a job)
Frugal with money, try to get as much out of
products as possible (fiscally conscious),
frustrating to be stuck at home, not doing
anything, feeling of uselessness, depression
could set in.
What does unemployment look like?

THERE WAS THIS MAYOR OF A
TOWN CALLED BARCOLONETA
AND HE ESSEPNTIALLY SAID THAT:
NOW THAT THERE’S NO
CHILDREN, THE WOMEN GET TO
WORK IN THE FACTORIES AND
THE MEN GET TO DO WHAT THEY
LIKE TO DO, WHICH IS HANG OUT
ON THE STREET AND TALK.
In the year 1930, a full thirty U.S. states had laws advocating for the
sterilization of the criminal, the mentally-ill, and the mentally-retarded. At
this time, dozens of other countries had similar laws in places regarding
eugenics, including China, Canada, Japan, India, Israel, Peru, South Africa,
and Sweden.
.
Theories were circulating expressing the general idea that economic
problems in underdeveloped countries were really problems of too many
people; if only the population growth could be controlled, the standard of
living would rise.
.
Between 1920-1950, many Puerto Rican doctors were pro-sterilization
rather than other forms of birth control. Many physicians thought that
contraception methods are too difficult for lower class Puerto Ricans. Some
hospitals would refuse medical service to women who had three or more
children unless they underwent sterilization surgery. Employers would also
“recommend” sterilization, offering working incentives if women
participated.

authority.
• What is the women’s high-heel shoe a symbol

VIDEO PIECE….
Her work is a hallucinatory feast for the
senses – smell, texture, sound, touch, are
stretched and played before the viewer. The
body is emphasized in strangely unfamiliar
ways to both seduce the viewer into the
closeness of the encounter yet cause
discomfort for the utter unknown of the body.
Diehl’s sculptural installations continue the
sensual challenge of her work where the
material confronts the form.
Teresa Diehl was born in
Tannourin, Lebanon; she grew
up in Caracas, Venezuela and
currently resides in Miami,
Florida.
Since the late 1990’s her work
has explored the fine line that
exists between intimacy and
discomfort, private and public,
pleasures and terrors. Since
2003 her work has focused
primarily in video, sound and
interactive installations; for
Diehl the Art experience
involves all the senses.

Are we doing anything illegal daily?
• Connecting to unsecured Wifi
– Goes against the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act
• Singing “Happy Birthday To You in public
– Time Warner owns the rights to this song, and has brought legal action
against TV shows and Girl Scouts unless they pay royalties to use the song.
– Christmas songs and the Macarena are also illegal to sing in public.
• Using a fake name on the internet
– Goes against the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act
• Jaywalking – tickets for up to $190
• Dog Licensing – costs about $8.50 per year if
spayed/neutered, or $34 if not spayed/neutered.
Caught without a license for your dog? That ticket is
$120!

What is the experience?
• JPIZZLE: a bit scared, we are passing through a jungle, running from a creature, one of us
has just been EATEN! But we must move on. And we turn around and face DARKNESS
ITSELF!
• Javier: An adventure that you’re on ALONE…trying to overcome the Fear. You want to be
better than that, you want to succeed.
• Enrique: Scared but running through my PAST! All those ghosts and bad memories, it felt
lonely.
• LOGOS: Serene feeling with hellish noises in a cave or creepy rainforest. What you see vs.
what you hear.
• Your experience is the marriage of sight, and hearing (multiple senses.
• Luis: some kinda movie, about to go through some death-like experience. We all take our
turns to die.
• Edgar (good twin): When imagination becomes UNCONTROLLABLE. And it distorts clarity in
thought.
• Guzzy: dejavu moment! Like walking into a dark room and turning on a single light.
• KD’s long dark journey down the hallway running to her bedroom so the monsters don’t
eat her.
• Loops!: Halloween MAZE (not corn)
• MIXTURE OF SCARY AND BENEVOLENT RESPONSES.
• GREG: like a massage parlor, with incense in the air, smoky foggy effect.
P8
Why is being illegal such a bad thing?
• Finding a job - totally legal to discriminate
against former felons
– Only 40-60% of former prisoners are able to find
employment, many end up back in jail.
• MUCH more limited financial aid for college
(especially for drug offenses, including marijuana)
• Who wants to go to jail anyway?
– Three meals a day, a place to sleep and shelter.
– Constant threats of violence from prison gangs.
– Rapes and assaults
– Degrading conditions: inhumane treatment,
mental, physical, emotional.

Juan Betancurth was born in Columbia in 1972.
He currently resides in NYC. His practice is about
blurring boundaries between subjects and
mediums; and his work explores dreams,
memory, and the present day through sculpture,
installation, and performance. He is especially
interested in themes of family tradition, power,
and submission, in particular as they relate to his
personal experiences. To explore these ideas,
Betancurth crafts meticulous, immersive
installations, filled with sculptures and props that
set the stage for his strange and enigmatic work.
Daniel Neumann is a Brooklyn-based
sound artist and audio engineer,
originally from Leipzig, Germany. In his
artistic practice he is using conceptual
and mostly collaborative strategies to
explore sound and sound material and
it's modulation through space and
media. Pieces are developed in different
formats and variations as ongoing
processes, which can result in
performances, installations, or radio
shows amongst others.

Juan Betancurth is an artist who
works with found sculptural forms,
and he has collaborated with
Daniel Neumann, a sound artist, to
create a site-specific installation. It
is an atmospherically charged
sound environment that derives its
sound from the building over a
period of time. The sculptural
elements are designed to
reference control, power, and
liberation. Neumann on the other
hand, works with sound as a
material force inherent in objects.
Together, their work speaks
directly to the visceral experience
of sound and matter.
This is their third collaboration.

  • 39. In the year 1930, a full thirty U.S. states had laws advocating for the sterilization of the criminal, the mentally-ill, and the mentally-retarded. At this time, dozens of other countries had similar laws in places regarding eugenics, including China, Canada, Japan, India, Israel, Peru, South Africa, and Sweden. . Theories were circulating expressing the general idea that economic problems in underdeveloped countries were really problems of too many people; if only the population growth could be controlled, the standard of living would rise. . Between 1920-1950, many Puerto Rican doctors were pro-sterilization rather than other forms of birth control. Many physicians thought that contraception methods are too difficult for lower class Puerto Ricans. Some hospitals would refuse medical service to women who had three or more children unless they underwent sterilization surgery. Employers would also “recommend” sterilization, offering working incentives if women participated. www.uic.edu and www.Stanford.edu 35% of Puerto Rican Women Sterilized in the mid-1900’s

Teresa Diehl L-Alber-Into 2015 Video and Sound installation This piece is a combination of precise film editing and its projection on the sculptural structure, which is made of fishing line that’s been dipped in layers of adhesive. This forms semi-transparent “screens” that resuls in multiple layers of superimposed imagery. This is combined with an even more haunting layered soundtrack. Photo credit: Gissell Espinoza

  • 56. Teresa Diehl L-Alber-Into 2015 Video and Sound installation VIDEO PIECE…. Her work is a hallucinatory feast for the senses – smell, texture, sound, touch, are stretched and played before the viewer. The body is emphasized in strangely unfamiliar ways to both seduce the viewer into the closeness of the encounter yet cause discomfort for the utter unknown of the body. Diehl’s sculptural installations continue the sensual challenge of her work where the material confronts the form.

  • 61. Are we doing anything illegal daily? • Connecting to unsecured Wifi – Goes against the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act • Singing “Happy Birthday To You in public – Time Warner owns the rights to this song, and has brought legal action against TV shows and Girl Scouts unless they pay royalties to use the song. – Christmas songs and the Macarena are also illegal to sing in public. • Using a fake name on the internet – Goes against the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act • Jaywalking – tickets for up to $190 • Dog Licensing – costs about $8.50 per year if spayed/neutered, or $34 if not spayed/neutered. Caught without a license for your dog? That ticket is $120! NYC.gov, Business Insider, Telegraph
  • 63. What is the experience? • JPIZZLE: a bit scared, we are passing through a jungle, running from a creature, one of us has just been EATEN! But we must move on. And we turn around and face DARKNESS ITSELF! • Javier: An adventure that you’re on ALONE…trying to overcome the Fear. You want to be better than that, you want to succeed. • Enrique: Scared but running through my PAST! All those ghosts and bad memories, it felt lonely. • LOGOS: Serene feeling with hellish noises in a cave or creepy rainforest. What you see vs. what you hear. • Your experience is the marriage of sight, and hearing (multiple senses. • Luis: some kinda movie, about to go through some death-like experience. We all take our turns to die. • Edgar (good twin): When imagination becomes UNCONTROLLABLE. And it distorts clarity in thought. • Guzzy: dejavu moment! Like walking into a dark room and turning on a single light. • KD’s long dark journey down the hallway running to her bedroom so the monsters don’t eat her. • Loops!: Halloween MAZE (not corn) • MIXTURE OF SCARY AND BENEVOLENT RESPONSES. • GREG: like a massage parlor, with incense in the air, smoky foggy effect.

  • 64. Why is being illegal such a bad thing? • Finding a job - totally legal to discriminate against former felons – Only 40-60% of former prisoners are able to find employment, many end up back in jail. • MUCH more limited financial aid for college (especially for drug offenses, including marijuana) • Who wants to go to jail anyway? – Three meals a day, a place to sleep and shelter. – Constant threats of violence from prison gangs. – Rapes and assaults – Degrading conditions: inhumane treatment, mental, physical, emotional.

  • 70. Juan Betancurth & Daniel Neumann Light Sound! Space! Creating an experience!! Juan Betancurth was born in Columbia in 1972. He currently resides in NYC. His practice is about blurring boundaries between subjects and mediums; and his work explores dreams, memory, and the present day through sculpture, installation, and performance. He is especially interested in themes of family tradition, power, and submission, in particular as they relate to his personal experiences. To explore these ideas, Betancurth crafts meticulous, immersive installations, filled with sculptures and props that set the stage for his strange and enigmatic work. Daniel Neumann is a Brooklyn-based sound artist and audio engineer, originally from Leipzig, Germany. In his artistic practice he is using conceptual and mostly collaborative strategies to explore sound and sound material and it's modulation through space and media. Pieces are developed in different formats and variations as ongoing processes, which can result in performances, installations, or radio shows amongst others.

  • 72. Juan Betancurth & Daniel Neumann Breaking the Cycle 2015 Mixed media with sound Light Sound! Space! Creating an experience!! Juan Betancurth is an artist who works with found sculptural forms, and he has collaborated with Daniel Neumann, a sound artist, to create a site-specific installation. It is an atmospherically charged sound environment that derives its sound from the building over a period of time. The sculptural elements are designed to reference control, power, and liberation. Neumann on the other hand, works with sound as a material force inherent in objects. Together, their work speaks directly to the visceral experience of sound and matter. This is their third collaboration.

Editor's Notes

  1. Some exhibitions have invited real estate brokers to imagine other uses or alternative configurations of the space that can help with attracting long-term commercial use.
  2. The truth about this building and my installation is about standing up for your personal community justice. How ever it's interpreted... Also It's about looking at building and history : the told and the untold history of the Bronx. Why is she without a blindfold? Why is she sitting down? What did that say about the Bronx back then when it was installed and what does that say about what we need to do for the Bronx in the future. The cracking open this building after 38 years of being closed to the public slows is a spiritual awakening for the light to come in: meaning The first step is acknowledge the truth is taking responsibility... I don't really make decisions about how to bring issues up with my work... It's more abstract for me my process
