Copyright & Appropriation Issues in Art

Copyright and appropriation issues in art are becoming increasingly complicated as well as fascinating. With the increased use of images online, particularly in social media like Instagram, the legal issues for artists become more at issue.

With the backdrop of the current exhibition, Taking Heart in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction by Jason Bryant and Charles Cohen we will have the opportunity to look first hand at particular examples in the gallery.

Screening of Jean Genet's Un Chant D'Amour
Nov

6:30 PM18:30

Screening of Jean Genet's Un Chant D'Amour

Held in conjunction with Like Smoke

Please join us at Equity Gallery (245 Broome Street, New York, NY) November 29th at 6:30PM for a special screening of Jean Genet's only directorial work Un Chant d'Amour alongside a live musical performance by the PUBLIQuartet. The 25-minute silent black and white film will be screened inside the gallery where the New York-based quartet will improvise, responding to the film's undertones using string instruments. Please stay after the screening to enjoy the group exhibition Like Smoke as the live score continues to accompany the event.  

PUBLIQuartet, The Met's current quartet-in-residence, has performed in a diverse range of venues from Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall to the Detroit Institute of Arts, Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola and Newport Jazz Festival. They have been presented by such institutions as the Detroit Jazz Festival, Chautauqua Institution, Virgina Arts Festival, Strathmore Hall, American Composers Orchestra, Columbus Museum of Art, Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival, Music of Now festival at Symphony Space, and National Sawdust.  

Like Smoke is a group exhibition curated by Osman Can Yerebakan, featuring works by Dan Fairbanks, Carl Ferrero, Daniel Greenfield-Campoverde, Hermes Payrhuber, Eric Rhein, Gwen Shockey, Pacifico Silano, Quay Quinn Wolf, Lindsey Wolkowicz, and Jade Yumang.

Adopting its title from an important component of Jean Genet’s only directorial effort, Un Chant d’Amour, the exhibition examines corporeality under the circumstance of physical absence. In Genet’s 1950 black and white silent film, two prisoners, also lovers, are confined to adjacent cells under the watch of an abusive guard who scrutinizes and suppresses their relationship and their struggles for physical contact. Eventually, the two prisoners embark on a dream-like hallucinatory encounter in which the smoke one blows to the other through the hole dividing them substitutes for their missing bodies.

The ten artists in this exhibition depict ways tactile surfaces and abstract imagery stand out to manifest carnality and figurative representation when the physical body is detached. Employing various mediums, each artist conveys earnest and intimate human feelings of longing beyond the body and its representative radiance, exceeding the limits of tangible presence toward meditative states. Furthermore, commenting on constant restraint and preconceptions queer identity face, the exhibition studies the portrayal of queer experience as a marginalized matter in society. Rendered into testimonies that are visually placid yet assertive in conveyance, the exhibition problematizes mainstream representations of queer aesthetics, challenging fixed notions and representations on mutual contact and solidarity.

Raising questions on body politics and the systematic oppression of the body as an objectified entity, the artists in the exhibition dismantle and redefine patterns for self-expression. On the other hand, analyzing the paradox of absent body, works selected approach the subject matter as a psychological argument in which the artists delve into depths of their subconsciouses to ponder self-discovery while facing a physical and mental void.
