Join us Wednesday, April 3, 2024, at 6pm to celebrate the publication of Brendan Greaves' biography of artist and musician Terry Allen. Both subject and author have history with Fleisher/Ollman: Allen showed artwork at Janet Fleisher Gallery in 1994 alongside collaborators from the musical Chippy, which premiered in Philadelphia that year; and Greaves was a director at the gallery in the early 2000s, where he was introduced to Allen's work.

Chris Corales, 1969–2018

*update: to contribute toward Chris's family's present and future expenses, visit www.gofundme.com/chris-corales


It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Chris Corales, an artist first introduced to Fleisher/Ollman by Chris Johanson in the 2011 summer show he curated for the gallery, entitled Introspective/Retrospective. At the opening reception of this exhibition Corales met, and fell in love with, then Philadelphia Museum of Art curator Adelina Vlas, and relocated to Philadelphia from Portland, Oregon soon after. The couple married and moved to Toronto a few years later, where Adelina took a curatorial position at the Art Gallery of Ontario. In 2015, they had a son, Nikola (Niko).


Chris was a good-humored character whose keen wit could light up a room. His signature constructions comprised of antique paper, old book covers, and binding tape imbued a minimal austerity with human warmth. While Chris lived in Philadelphia only a few short years, he made many friends in the art community here, and will be greatly missed. Our deepest sympathies go out to Adelina and Niko, and to all of Chris’ family and friends during this difficult time. A memorial for Chris will take place in Philadelphia this summer.

Sneak Peek: Fleisher/Ollman’s Bold, Cool New Geometries

"In this moment of overwhelming election season stupidity, when so much of the media we encounter every day is message-manipulated nonsense, let us refresh the senses with some blessed higher-thinking abstraction. Color stimulates the mind. An orange circle, a deep green stripe. New Geometries, opening tonight (reception 6-8 pm) at the Fleisher/Ollman, provides an aesthetic sanctuary that hits the reset button in just the right way. The exhibit even has a little accompanying publication to take home with you."

In Memoriam

All of us here at Fleisher/Ollman mourn the loss of our neighbor and friend Marion ('Kippy') Boulton Stroud. Her sudden death is an immeasurable loss to Philadelphia and the art world at large. Renowned for her support of artists' projects in both fiber-based and new media, as well as for bringing international artists into our midst, Kippy was a boon to Philadelphia. She made the Fabric Workshop and Museum a place where truly inventive works of art could be realized and seen on the world stage.

Many of the artists Fleisher/Ollman represents created amazing works at FW&M with Kippy's unwavering support, including Howard Finster, Bill Walton, Tristin Lowe and Paul Swenbeck. We will always be indebted to her for this.

More than anything though, we'll miss her as a friend, cheerleader and artistic visionary. She challenged all of us to look beyond the known. No challenge was too big or too difficult that it couldn't be met. It is this quality of Kippy we will miss the most.

Personally, I am thankful for her support of the gallery and what we do. I hope she understood how much that support meant to me.

Fleisher/Ollman announces new director

Fleisher/Ollman is excited to announce that Alex Baker has been named the new director of the gallery. Baker most recently served as the senior curator, Contemporary Art at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia, where he curated Ranjani Shettar: Dewdrops and Sunshine (2011), Harrell Fletcher: The Sound We Make Together (Melbourne) (2010), and Ricky Swallow: The Bricoleur (2009), among other exhibitions. Amy Adams, the outgoing director, said of his hiring "John Ollman and I couldn't be happier that Alex is joining the gallery, as his curatorial interests are closely aligned with Fleisher/Ollman's. He has a deep connection to Philadelphia and we are confident that his knowledge, skills and passion will propel the gallery and our program to new and interesting places."

Prior to his appointment with the National Gallery of Victoria, Baker was the curator of contemporary art at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and associate curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, where he organized exhibitions with artists including Robert Ryman, Ellen Harvey, Barry McGee, Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, and Laylah Ali, among others. Indelible Market: Barry McGee, Stephen Powers, and Todd James, originally developed by Baker at the Institute of Contemporary Art in 2000, toured to the Venice Biennale in 2001. With Toby Kamps, he co-curated Space Is the Place, an exhibition about space travel and contemporary art, which toured through Independent Curators International (2007-2008).

Bill Walton's Studio at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia

September 7 – December 4, 2011

Reception: Wednesday, September 7, 6-8PM

Exhibition walkthrough with curator Ingrid Schaffner: Wednesday, September 7, 5PM, ICA Members Only

The Institute of Contemporary Art presents Bill Walton\\\'s Studio in the Project Space. This exhibition recreates the unique environment of the minimalist artist, a key figure in the Philadelphia art community for nearly 50 years.

Walton, a commercial printmaker by trade and later an instructor at Moore College of Art and Design (1974-1990), was often more interested in the materials used for printmaking—wood, lead, steel—than in the finished product. His studio contained an exhibition area so he could display his work in progress in order to judge whether or not it was finished, a crucial part of his studio practice. At the time of his death in 2010, Walton\\\'s studio was a small miracle of order. Tools and materials were arranged as carefully as works of art. Indeed it was not always simple to tell the tools from the work, to judge whether an artful arrangement of screws and bolts was waiting to be used or to be admired.

Here and Now: Prints, Drawings, and Photographs by Ten Philadelphia Artists at the PMA

Featuring the Dufala Brothers and Isaac Tin Wei Lin

September 10, 2011 - December 4, 2011

The works featured in this exhibition are a lively, arresting, and timely celebration of ten Philadelphia artists, ranging in age from 25 to 50, who are currently making art on paper.

Each of these artists is represented by a small group of works demonstrating the strength and diversity of talent that exists in the city today. With ingenious, elaborate details and the inventive layering of materials, a number of artistic techniques and processes can clearly be seen. Still, there is an underlying seriousness of purpose and a desire to confront the dilemmas of today’s world that is prevalent throughout.

Subjects, therefore, may vary from the abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib to the proliferation of trash in the environment, from concern for architectural heritage to the gritty everyday life of the city’s streets. Some disquieting issues are faced directly, while others are addressed with edgy humor or are ironically masked by great beauty.

The ten artists on view are Astrid Bowlby, Steven and Billy Dufala (who operate in collaboration), Vincent Feldman, Daniel Heyman, Isaac Tin Wei Lin, Virgil Marti, Joshua Mosley, Serena Perrone, Hannah Price, and Mia Rosenthal. Some of them are also known for their work in other mediums, such as installation, video, sculpture, and painting. Collectively, they represent an important facet of the remarkable work being produced in Philadelphia today.

Dufala Brothers at PAFA

Gallery artists Steven and Billy Dufala\'s work will be included in:
Urbanism: Reimagining the Lived Environment
Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts
Fisher Brooks Gallery, Samuel M.V. Hamilton
July 2 – September 4, 2011

Philadelphia has long been a cultural center and, indeed, when PAFA was founded, Philadelphia was the most vibrant city in the Republic. A cradle for American art for over two centuries, it is now a city where hundreds of artists live and where hundreds more are being trained in its art schools and universities. Philadelphia is also a center that, over the past decade, has attracted artists away from other major cities, providing not only a richly supportive artistic community but also affordable working spaces and good transport and communications. The city provides a dynamic and vital environment that can be perceived in much of the work that is currently emerging from artists’ studios. In this context, Urbanism provides an opportunity to look at four emerging artists from Philadelphia who, in various ways, re-focus the idea of the urban through a lens that explores the dreams, experience, and potential of the lived environment.

Employing a variety of media, Steven and Billy Blaise Dufala, known as the Dufala Brothers, create three-dimensional works that touch upon the absurd, while giving new meaning to discarded and homeless objects. Refashioning the everyday in ways that are unexpected and humorous, a dumpster can become a coffin and a toilet bowl can be transformed into the seat of a tricycle. In this repurposing of common objects, the Dufala Brothers question not only the nature and logic of consumer culture, but they also challenge us to think again about what art is and what it can be. Born in Philadelphia, Steven Dufala and Billy Blaise Dufala both studied at PAFA. They are both on the teaching staff of PAFA.

Tristin Lowe at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

Gallery artist Tristin Lowe will be exhibiting Mocha Dick at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, VA.

Tristin Lowe: Mocha Dick
Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
21st Century Gallery
200 N. Boulevard
Richmond, VA 23220
July 23 - November 27, 2011

Tristin Lowe’s colossal sculpture Mocha Dick is a fifty-two-feet-long recreation of the real-life albino sperm whale that terrorized early 19th-century whaling vessels near Mocha Island in the South Pacific. Mocha Dick, described in appearance as “white as wool,” engaged in battle with numerous whaling expeditions and inspired Herman Melville’s epic Moby-Dick (1851). Lowe worked with the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia to make the sculpture: a large-scale vinyl inflatable understructure sheathed in white industrial felt.

Tristin Lowe: Mocha Dick is organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and curated by John B. Ravenal, Sydney and Frances Lewis Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art. The sculpture is on loan courtesy of the West Collection, Philadelphia and was created in collaboration with the Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia.

Joan Nelson at Michael Kohn Gallery

New Paintings
Michael Kohn Gallery
8071 Beverly Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90048
July 15 - August 27, 2011

The Michael Kohn Gallery is pleased to present new paintings by New York-based artist, Joan Nelson. In 1989, Nelson was selected to be in the prestigious Whitney Biennial. Known for working within a Postmodern sensibility, Nelson combined minimalist form and art historical content culled from artists ranging from Titian to Turner.

Her choice to paint on a simple form—a square, wooden box—is a nod to such Modern Masters as Donald Judd. Transcending into the realm of sculptural objecthood, Nelson\'s paintings have a distinctly contemporary feel while cultivating their place within a long history of landscape painting.

Her newest work continues to combine Minimalist form and Post-historical subject matter while capturing a complexity that brings new life to her unique practice. Inspired by the beautifully lush and remote area in which she lives, Nelson keeps a visual database in her mind that she draws from for her paintings. This process of internalizing her surroundings allows her to represent more the presence of a tree or vine, for example, as opposed to its mere representation.

Playing with the idea of what nature is, and subsequently her role as an artist within it, Nelson brilliantly and subtly manipulates paint and allows it to realize its own nature and materiality.

Jonathan Berger on The Usefulness of Useless Things

Join us at Fleisher/Ollman on Saturday, April 30 at 3pm for a walk-through of The Usefulness of Useless Things with curator Jonathan Berger

At 4pm there will be a screening of documentation from Guy de Cointet's Tell Me, performed at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1980.

Berger will discuss the themes within the exhibition and the varied histories and practices of the participating artists. Along the way, learn about the curator's unorthodox approach to exhibition-making, based in his own practice of conceptual collage and assemblage. Berger's projects often include materials that are collected, sought out, and re-contextualized, combining new and old, traditional and non-traditional, popular and obscure and static display and events. His most recent curatorial projects include Stuart Sherman: Nothing Up My Sleeve, presented in November 2009 at Participant Gallery, New York, as a major contribution to the 2009 PERFORMA Biennial. He is presently organizing Peter Schumann: Black and White, the first major retrospective exhibition of Bread and Puppet Theater's founding director, scheduled to open at the Queens Museum in 2012. Future curatorial projects include Exuma, the Obeah Man, scheduled for 2013, and Andy Kaufman: On Creating Reality a retrospective exhibition tentatively scheduled for 2014.

Ars Nova Workshop at Fleisher/Ollman

Ars Nova Workshop is excited to present this special duo performance with guitarist and banjoist Eugene Chadbourne and percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani. These two sonic adventurers have been working together since 2007, merging their diverse musical languages to create a unique world of cosmopolitan sound.

Guitarist and banjoist Eugene Chadbourne has been fusing experimental rock, bluegrass, free jazz, blues and noise since he began making music in the mid-1970s. Equally inspired by the sounds of Appalachia, Jimi Hendrix, John Coltrane, and Captain Beefheart, he has formulated a musical language and category of his own. Over the years he has worked with John Zorn, Henry Kaiser, Fred Frith, Derek Bailey, Han Bennink, Sun City Girls, Aki Takase, and many other leading experimental musicians. Originally from Osaka, Japan but currently living in Eaton, PA, Tatsuya Nakatani has articulated his own percussive style that combines free jazz, rock, noise and traditional Japanese folk music. In order to capture this vast aural landscape, his drum kit is supplemented with gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, bells, and metal objects. He has released over 50 recordings, and his recent releases include his Map project with guitarist Mary Halvorson and bassist Reuben Radding which released an album in 2010 called Fever Dream on Taiga, a solo album titled Abiogenesis on his HH Productions imprint, and a duo release titled Essences with trumpeter Forbes Graham on Blaq Lghtn.

Paul Swenbeck at Columbia College

Paul Swenbeck's work is included in MIDWINTER: Embrace The Darkness at Columbia College Chicago. MIDWINTER is the day on the calendar when there is the least amount of daylight and the longest period of night. It is on this day when the balance between light and dark swings decidedly in favor of the dark. Inspired by this time of year, the group exhibition MIDWINTER: Embrace The Darkness is curated by Justin Witte and will highlight the work of artists who pull from the notion of darkness, not only in its absence of light, but in its references to that which is invisible, unknowable or ignored. Participating artists include: Dana Carter, Joy Feasley, Roxane Hopper, Irena Knezevic, Michael Robinson and Craig Yu.

The exhibition at the Glass Curtain Gallery opens on January 24 and runs through March 2, 2011.

Jennifer Levonian's Holy Donuts!,2008 will be screened as part of Plastic Summer, curated by Stamatina Gregory and Erin Sickler.

"In the annual abdication of work, school, life, and ethics (at least for some), beaches and boats, summer houses and amusement parks become the projection for a fantasy of escape and absence of responsibility. As constructed as a screensaver, as ubiquitous as a discounted package holiday, this idea of summer can seem infinitely plastic and artificial. With a nod to playfulness and a wink at the surreal, the nine videos in Plastic Summer both embrace and interrogate the visual language of summer."

Works by Elia Alba, Kim Collmer, Eteam, Jillian McDonald, Tea Makipaa, Tom Pnini, Jaye Rhee, and Carrie Schneider will also be on view.

Tristin Lowe, Exhibition of New Work at the Rhode Island School of Design

The moon, Earth's only satellite, has been a source of mystery and wonder since the beginning of history. Scientists have studied the moon's physical characteristics for millennia, and artists and writers have been inspired by its powerful presence. Using low-tech (but labor-intensive) methods and material, sculptor Tristin Lowe (American, b. 1966) has created a moon to fill the Museum's lower Farago Gallery by covering an inflatable sphere, twelve-and-a-half feet in diameter, in white felt. "This sculpture, entitled Lunacy, is both surprising and contemplative" explains Judith Tannenbaum, the Museum's Richard Brown Baker Curator of Contemporary Art. "This piece is a reflection of his longtime fascination with science related to the moon and the cosmos, and at the same time is an astonishing feat of craftsmanship." A fabric with ancient origins, felt absorbs energy, light, and sound. The surface of Lunacy is composed of fourteen felt sections hand-worked and sewn together. A myriad of raised craters and rings approximate the moon's terrain rather than replicating its actual geological features.

Mei-ling Hom's Cloud Sphere at Philadelphia International Airport

The City of Philadelphia’s Percent for Art Program and the Philadelphia International Airport Exhibitions Program are pleased to announce the completion of a new public artwork in conjunction with the Terminal D-E Expansion and Modernization Project. At a ribbon-cutting ceremony on February 16th, the artist Mei-ling Hom joined Mayor Nutter and other dignitaries to officially dedicate Cloud Sphere in conjunction with the opening of the new Terminal E Hammerhead area of the Airport.

Cloud Sphere consists of 45 three-dimensional cloud forms intricately shaped through the twisting and bending of stainless steel hex netting. The forms, which are each unique in shape and size, occupy the overhead space of the Rotunda, located at the end of Hammerhead terminal. During the day, sunlight causes the mesh forms to become more ethereal and elusive; at night, the clouds become more assertive as the edge lighting sets the upper walls aglow and casts dramatic cloud shadows on the walls. Throughout history, clouds have played a major role in Chinese art and culture as they symbolize never-ending fortune, happiness and luck. The shimmering cloud forms provide a respite of calm amidst the activity of flight departures and arrivals and create an ephemeral, dream-like moment.

The Percent for Art Program of the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy commissions exceptional and enduring works of site-specific public art by renowned and emerging artists for City buildings. Philadelphia’s public art collection is recognized as the largest and most remarkable in the world. Since 1959, more than 300 works of art have been commissioned through the City of Philadelphia’s Percent for Art ordinance.

Steven and Billy Blaise Dufala will be included in an upcoming exhibition at Slought Foundation, Philadelphia. "Solitary Pleasures" is a provocative exhibition exploring the theme of masturbation and other forms of solitary pleasure, including smoking, drinking, reading, and art itself. The exhibition will feature historical works, contemporary works, and work by younger artists that present different visual representations of solitary pleasures. In addition, texts, quotations, and other research material will offer a larger historical context for appreciating the multiplicity of solitary pleasures in contemporary culture. A visual lineage including artists such as Durer, Titian, Giorgione, Hans Baldung Grien, among others will be suggested through reproductions, while quotations from Diogenes, Diderot, Rousseau, Kant, Freud, Irigaray, Foucault, Derrida, and others will offer an intellectual and historical context for the exhibition. Instead of trying to be exhaustive, the exhibition speculates on the possibilities posed by the subject of solitary pleasures. "Solitary Pleasures" runs from March 26 to April 21.

Luis Romero and Ray Yoshida reviewed in Philadelphia Inquirer

Galleries: Small, bold works dazzle in a big space

By Edith Newhall

Luis Romero's obsessively constructed and painted paper assemblages and quirky line drawings easily could lead you to believe he's a self-taught artist. That, and the fact that he's showing his works at the Fleisher/Ollman Gallery, which besides showing contemporary artists has a long history of introducing the efforts of the un-art-schooled, makes that possibility seem all the more likely.

In fact, Romero has spent more time in school than out of it. A Puerto Rican who lives in Chicago, he has a degree in philosophy, literature, and film from Boston University; a certificate from the National School of Plastic Arts (Escuela Nacional de Artes Plasticas) in Mexico City; and an M.F.A. in painting and drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Romero's paper assemblages take up most of his show and are the work you see first as you enter the main gallery. They're made up of multiple torn pieces of paper that he paints, then staples together to form rough grid patterns. As busy and childlike as this mode of construction sounds, it results in surprisingly elegant, bold geometry.

His abstract line drawings, on the other hand, bring to mind the contours of pre-Columbian Mexican pottery, as well as the stylized, repetitive shapes common to the paintings of Chicago imagists Roger Brown, Christina Ramberg, and Jim Nutt.

Having seen Romero's work in two group shows here, I would not have imagined it in a show of the scale he now has - his pieces are generally small and would seem ideally suited to an intimate box of a gallery - but his percolating grids take over Fleisher/Ollman's wide-open main space as if they were made to be there.

Represented by a selection of collages in Fleisher/Ollman's small gallery is Ray Yoshida, a Chicago imagist who counseled countless students during his decades as a painting professor at SAIC (Romero was one, as were Roger Brown, Elizabeth Murray, Robert Storr, and many others, myself included). He also was a master of the seemingly passing enigmatic observation that would leave a student desperately guessing at its real meaning. Yoshida's collages of images, cut from comic books and glued to paper in tidy grids, are as mysteriously witty as he was, an invitation to an inscrutable code that would never be cracked.

David Ebony of Art in America has named Fleisher/Ollman Gallery one of the ten best booths at this year's Armory Show Modern.

Ebony writes: "It would be difficult to find a better example of Ed Paschke's work than the 1970 painting of a figure playing an accordion on view here. Corresponding with canvases by Christina Ramberg, whose figurative abstraction closely relate to those of the Chicago Imagists, it was the centerpiece of a booth containing sculpture by William Edmondson and the Philadelphia Wireman. Recent works by young artists, such as the team of Steven and Billy Blaise Dufala, more than held their own here. Known for focusing on environmental issues in their works, the brothers showed large watercolors of the floating islands of plastic bottles and other refuse that litter the oceans, as well as a peculiar, jerry-built machine sculpture that resembles a yellow power saw."

Jennifer Levonian and Fleisher/Ollman at ARCO Madrid

Gallery artist, Jennifer Levonian will be featured in ARCO Madrid's Cinema Loop curated by Paul Young and Carolina Grau. ARCO Madrid 29 International Contemporary Art Fair runs from February 17 through February 21.

Take Your Picture With a Puma, Jennifer Levonian's newest low-tech animation, made from watercolor, drawing, and collage, follows an American tourist on her quest for authentic experiences in Mexico, aided only by a Lonely Planet guidebook. In her search for offbeat locations, she inevitably travels the well-trodden path of other like-minded tourists. Surrounded by cruise ships, open air markets, cat fights, and teenagers making out, the tourist-protagonist finds an unlikely friendship in a Mexican bakery.

Anthony Campuzano in Read-Only-Memory

Organized by Stamatina Gregory

January 8 - February 13, 2010
Opens January 8 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Read-Only-Memory brings together works by Anthony Campuzano, Graham Dolphin, and Molly Larkey, all of which incorporate acts of analogue transcription. Characterized by the meticulous, almost devotional labor of recreating found, journalistic, pop, or literary texts, these works stand as extreme acts of obsolete protocol, investigating the lapses of time and information between reading, writing, and reception.

Independent curator Stamatina Gregory recently completed the Whitney Lauder Curatorial Fellowship at the ICA in Philadelphia and curated a large group exhibition of contemporary photography at the FLAGArt Foundation. She is also a doctoral candidate at The Graduate Center at the City University of New York.

A blog with content and pictures

Friend and gallery artist, Jina Valentine, is currently spending one year in Paris, France on a residency through the Stanford Studio for Humanities at the Cité International. You can read about her travels and discoveries here:


If you need convincing that you should add another site to your dailies:

"saturday afternoon, at 14:30, we arrived at the Closerie Falballa-- the site itself is in Périgny-Sur-Yerres, approximately 2 hours by train/bus/walk from centre-ville Paris... the closerie falbala was executed between 1971-1973 by Dubuffet and a team of technicians. it's quite a grand accomplishment, and is representative of the Hourloupe Cycle for which he's most known. the site is nestled away in the woods, and was damp and slippery with wet leaves when we arrived. the Closerie, the garden-simulacrum is just large enough to feel like a site, once you're in it, but not so grand as to feel like a park, say, and is larger than monumental sculpture--or more inviting anyway. and our group numbered about 10 people--two families, including a set of talkative toddlers, and locals from the banlieu. i'll update this post with pictures soon, but what was really most striking about being there, navigating this undulating, black and white terrain, was watching the way in which the groups' shapes and colors interacted with the piece. imagine this: a blond woman in fur coat, 50ish, stockings, and 3 inch heels with a toddler modifies her movements to the terrain and to the child run-amok. i mean at first you'd think the site seems out of place (stark white and black on earth-tones). within the closerie, you realize we the visitors are quite out of place there--tripping, wobbling around, and interrupting each others' views of the work with our brightly colored, awkward bodies."

Third Man Trio at Fleisher/Ollman

Tuesday, October 13, 8pm

Han Bennink, drums
Michael Moore, reeds
Will Holshouser, accordion
$12 General Admission

Presented by Ars Nova Workshop

Since the demise of the legendary and critically-acclaimed Trio Clusone -featuring Han Bennink, Michael Moore and Ernst Reijseger - in 1998, the jazzcommunity has been anxiously awaiting a vehicle for composer Moore and the raucous Bennink to carry on with their peculiar melodic, harmonic and rambunctious work. Following a near decade-long search, Bennink and Moore, both members of Misha Mengelberg's Instant Composers Pool, found the ideal "third man" in Brooklyn-based accordionist Will Holshouser. Holshouser, a student of Anthony Braxton, has collaborated with Antony and the Johnsons, David Krakauer & Klezmer Madness, Maria Schneider and Regina Carter.

One of the founding fathers of European improvised music, Bennink (b.1942) has performed with Sonny Rollins, Wes Montgomery, Eric Dolphy and Dexter Gordon. With fellow Dutch pioneers, pianist Misha Mengelberg and saxophonist Willem Breuker, he founded the musicians’ collective Instant Composers Pool in 1967, with which he still performs. Since, Bennink has collaborated frequently with Steve Lacy, Roswell Rudd, Peter Brötzmann, Derek Bailey and Dave Douglas, among others. A student of Jaki Byard and Gunther Schuller, Moore is also known for his work with Fred Hersch and Jewels and Binoculars.

Art to Make You Laugh (and Cry)

by Randy Kennedy

"Nicely fed, I walked over to the Fleisher/Ollman Gallery, a 47-year-old center for the work of self-taught artists which has also, since 1997, focused on contemporary artists whose work reflects the influence of such outsider art. The show on view, “Frenz,” which ends on Saturday, is a good, oddball one, with pieces by 11 artists who were chosen by the indie musician Will Oldham."

Digital Primitives at Fleisher/Ollman

Thursday, September 24, 8pm

Cooper-Moore, diddly-bo + banjo
Assif Tsahar, tenor saxophone + bass clarinet
Chad Taylor, drum set + m\'bira
$12 General Admission

Presented by Ars Nova Workshop

As a composer, performer, instrument builder, storyteller, teacher, mentor, and organizer, Cooper-Moore has been a major, if somewhat behind-the-scenes, catalyst in the world of creative music for over 30 years. As a child prodigy Cooper-Moore played piano in churches near his birthplace in the Piedmont region of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. His performance roots in the realm of avant-jazz date to the NYC Loft Jazz era in the early 1970s. His first fully committed jazz group was formed in 1970 - the collective trio Apogee with David S. Ware and drummer Marc Edwards. Sonny Rollins asked them to open for him at the Village Vanguard in 1973, and they did so with aplomb. A recording of this group was made in 1977, and later issued as Birth of a Being on hatHut under Ware’s name. Following an evidently rather trying European tour with Ware, Beaver Harris and Brian Smith in 1981, Cooper-Moore returned home and completely destroyed his piano, with sledgehammer and fire, in his backyard. He didn’t play piano again until some years after, instead focusing his energies from 1981-1985 on developing and implementing curriculum to teach children through music via the Head Start program.

Returning to New York in 1985, he spent a great part of his creative time working and performing with theatre and dance productions, largely utilizing his hand-crafted instruments. It was not until the early 90s, when William Parker asked him to join his group, In Order To Survive, that Cooper-Moore’s pianistic gifts were again regularly featured in a jazz context. For this rare Philadelphia appearance, he performs with the collective Digital Primitives featuring Israeli tenor saxophonist and bass clarinetist Assif Tsahar, known for his work with Cecil Taylor, Rashied Ali, Peter Kowald, William Parker and Hamid Drake; and drummer Chad Taylor, a member of the Chicago Underground Duo and Iron and Wine, and a major contributor to Chicago's post-rock scene where he has recorded or collaborated with Tortoise, Isotope 217, Stereolab, Sam Prekop and Jim O'Rourke.

machines machines machines machines machines machines machines explodes the world of garage tinkers and backyard engineers in a ridiculous theatre piece featuring the world\'s most complicated machines set to perform the simplest tasks. Following the formula, \"the most of amount of effort for the least amount of gain,\" three chowderhead geniuses reach for the heights of mechanical ingenuity to reveal the depths of human idiocy.

Machines x 7 focuses on a trio of fretful men (Rainpan co-founders Geoff Sobelle and Trey Lyford along with Pig Iron\'s Gabriel Quinn Bauriedel) who may or may not be brothers living in what may or may not be a postapocalyptic world. In constant fear of an unnamed and unseen enemy, they grow increasingly paranoid and wire their bunker with an enormous array of machines constructed from debris.

Dynamic duo

by Edith Newhall

"Few artworks in Philadelphia can inspire the jaw-dropping awe that Tristin Lowe's single, gigantic felt replica of a whale, Mocha Dick, at the Fabric Workshop and Museum, does (and will do all summer). By contrast, the two-person show Lowe is sharing with Paul Swenbeck at Fleisher/Ollman Gallery has the feeling of a collaboration, of two friends playing off each other's whims." [...]

It's not only enormous, but improbable - a life-scale, 52-foot-long sperm whale, Mocha Dick, executed in ivory-colored industrial felt stretched over an inflatable vinyl armature. [...]"

Tristin Lowe will be unveiling his newest work-a 52 foot long sculpture of a sperm whale at the Fabric Workshop and Museum’s newly renovated galleries. The exhibition which runs from April 27 through the end of the summer also includes work by Virgil Marti, Peter Rose and Ryan Trecartin.

Inspired by Mocha Dick, the notorious male sperm whale that lived in the Pacific Ocean in the early 19th Century and which was the model for Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, Lowe has created his version of the iconic leviathan out of felt. The piece was made in conjunction with the Fabric Workshop and Museum.

Drawing in the World at Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery at the University of the Arts is a quietly powerful show, in which Sid Sachs examines how drawing functions on many levels by painters, sculptors, architects, craftspersons, cartoonists, conceptual artists, filmmakers, appropriationists and visionaries. There are many drawings which show process, drawings as objects, as well as examples of finished drawings. The drawings are from some of major artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, as well as rising stars.

Gallery artists Anthony Campuzano, Jina Valentine, Andrew Herman, and Isaac Resnikoff have work included, alongside Polly Apfelbaum, Jennifer Bartlett, Mel Bochner, Lee Bontecou, Charles Burns, William Daley, Sergei Eisenstein, Joel Fisher, Sidney Goodman, Joseph Grigely, Louis Kahn, Daniel Liebeskind, Cynthia Lin, Sherry Levine, Mark Lombardi, Henry Moore, Joshua Mosely, Matt Mullican, Judy Pfaff, Ellen Phelan, Martin Ramirez, Steve Riedell, Perry Steindel, Mark Stockton, and Stephen Talasnik.

Touch Sensitive is Anthony Campuzano's first major museum outing. Touch Sensitive is an apt name for what promises to be an informative and engaging exhibition of new and select drawings, products of the artists intense collecting, scrutinizing, distillation of news, personal notes, history, obituaries, and popular culture. Anthony's ability to make meaningful connections between disparate things and to generate a significant personal resonance between the viewer and his many famous and not so famous subjects, nears a place of sweet perfection. Simultaneously, the artist makes you feel anonymous, famous, important, young, old, fragile and invincible. Do see the show.

Landman and the Thunderbird Screening

On January 19, Fleisher/Ollman will host the debut screening of the documentation of Philadelphia artist Andrew Brehm's "Landman and the Thunderbird," an ambitious performance which he produced this past Fall. For three days Brehm sequestered himself in the courtyard of the North Philadelphia warehouse where he keeps his studio, equipped with a reservoir of water and assorted warehouse-variety debris. The setting is one of Philadelphia's neighborhoods hit hardest by de-industrialization, population loss, unemployment, poverty and crime. Various surreal theatrics ensue, injecting elements of fantasy—both comical and nightmarish—into what might otherwise pass as straight-up SURVIVOR:Kensington Edition. The result is poignant commentary on free-will, poverty, homelessness and existence.

Born deaf, James Castle (1900–1977), a self-taught American artist who refused to read, write, or otherwise communicate except through art, used soot, saliva, and found materials such as ads and food wrappers for his creations. Today, major museums throughout the U.S. collect his work.

In association with the exhibition James Castle: A Retrospective at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (October 14, 2008–January 4, 2009), the Penn Humanities Forum presents the Foundation for Self-Taught Artists’ new documentary on Castle, with a panel discussion to follow on the radical changes in the canon of art reflected in the new acceptance of self-taught artists.

The gig on Friday night brings together an extraordinary array of performers, and we highly recommend you buy tickets in advance. The downstairs will be free, but the upstairs needs a ticket, and these will sell out soon. Please go to inliquid.com for more information and to buy tickets. We shall see you there.

It's a fine corollary to the American history and picking apart of the war machine present in the exhibition currently hanging at Fleisher/Ollman, now through October 27th. Produced in collaboration with the Brandywine Workshop, the print is in an edition of 35.

Martha McDonald

There will be an event at the gallery this Friday from 5 to 7 pm. At the event there will be an atmosphere of the most appropriate sort as we click into gear for another season, gentle and quiet and always slightly out of step with the rest of the Philadelphia art world. The evening marks the release of 'Lament', a publication commemorating a performance by Martha McDonald at the storied Bartram's Garden in Philadelphia on an evening in late summer, 2006. Known for extravagant and baroque site-specific work, the Bartram's piece is McDonald's most pared-down work to date, and the clear, compact book reflects a new sort of logic with its juxtapositions of raking photographic documentary from the performance with chapters of floss embroideries containing a minimal, unfolding narrative about loss and the evolution of the species. We are delighted to be displaying the embroideries for the first time on Friday, and delighted to be distributing copies of the book, gratis, to all visitors. Though the embroideries will be on view through next week, consider this a one-night-only event, and join us to celebrate with McDonald and 'Lament'.

Three shows featuring gallery artists are taking place around the world this summer. Jina Valentine opened 'Witch Hazel Bark,' a solo show of new works on paper and small sculptures at Steve Turner Contemporary in Los Angeles, running now through August 4th. Images abound on Turner's website. TODT are showing 'Products' at the Georges Pompidou annex in Cajarc, France until September 23rd (see right,) and James Castle is showing in the recently extended/expanded exhibition 'Citadel 1: Front Room/Killing Room' at David Risley Gallery in London.

Find Anthony Campuzano and Felipe Jesus Consalvos at Adam Baumgold Gallery, 74 East 79th Street in New York City, participating in 'Text Messaging,' a show of words in pictures.

Gallery artist Jina Valentine is appearing in a four-person exhibition at Jack The Pelican Presents in Brooklyn from May 12th to June 10th. Curator W. Benjamin Smith describes her contribution thusly: "Delicately cut-up bags of sugar and corn meal emerge as beautiful cadavers of processed pop food packaging with their granular insides pouring out. Valentine is also installing what may be perceived as a nervous sand painting of a makeshift prayer rug out of bleached flour. Jina, who recently was exhibited at the Studio Museum in Harlem, works almost as an actress in her studio playing roles of folk artists with odd and obsessive practices. She consciously chooses strange alternatives to canvas, from cupboard objects and wallpaper to record cases and shadows." Sounds great and check it out.

A flurry of media interest has fallen upon the artists of the Fleisher/Ollman Gallery this month. Isaac Resnikoff is featured solely as the "Critic's Pick" on the desirable final leaf of the May issue of Artnews, while Anthony Campuzano is on the back cover and plum in the middle of the latest edition of New American Paintings "40 artists you should know about." TODT received a remarkable review in the Philadelphia Inquirer on the 27th April, while Sculpture Magazine has an 8 page, generously-illustrated article with interview in its May issue.

Tonight marks the opening of TODT AFTER NEXT, a show that we have been working on for almost 2 years. TODT, a collective formed in 1978 who have exhibited at P.S.1, The Whitney Biennial, The Brooklyn Museum, The Venice Biennale and now Fleisher/Ollman Gallery, are among the most important New York artists of the 1980s, and remain among the most industrious, inventive and challenging artists, period. We are honored to present this show, which includes the double lightbox "Double Fuck Susie," famously censored at the Indianapolis Museum in 1995, weapons that stopped traffic on Walnut Street as we installed last week, and 3 sculptures including toilets. Here are sculptures that presupposed every cultural art shock of the 90s, from Hirst, to Emin to the Chapmans, by ten years clear. Please join us, 6-8, April 20th 2007.

For locals looking for action tonight, Fleisher/Ollman has very kindly been asked to play records at Transit nightclub. Local luminaries Low Budget and Spank Rock will be making a mess on the main floor, and we will be up in the attic trying to figure out ways to play jazz records, then not playing them at all.

Keen to point you towards

a fierce morsel of criticism
on Greil Marcus' new book. Gabe Boylan is a rara avis and friend (he deejayed a storied party for the gallery's first December invitational a few years back,) and even the most objective viewer will agree that this piece trumps the New York Times book review as far as dispersible critique goes. Since that's what matters here, nice work.

Living Library

After several months of preparation, Fleisher/Ollman is proud to unveil its living library of self-published fanzines, tracts, screeds, slander, philosophy, doodle and doo-doo. The publications are available for sale and extended reference in the gallery, neither classified nor ranked, and we will periodically pick out exceptional work to feature on the shelf and on the website. This month's hot potatoes are:


Hobo travelogues in photo and ephemera from a mob of tender itinerant Scandinavians. Cobbled together and produced in one day by Marten Damgaard, Tristin Ceddia, Barry McGee and Thomas Stavnes. 100 copies only, full color and black-and-white xerox, 2-color silkscreened cover.


Two short stories and a longer novella by Matthias Connor, Carnaby Street legend, former pornographer and perennial dole collector. Spite and resignation vibrating from London center out to the suburbs. Original stamped cover artwork by Oliver Payne and Nick Relph.

Tristin Lowe: Socked Up

Fleisher/Ollman Gallery is pleased to invite you to Thursday's opening of "Socked Up," new work from Tristin Lowe, 6-8pm in the Gallery, with all the usual trimmings.

"Socked Up" is Lowe's first commercial gallery exhibition after over a decade of projects at such storied institutions as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Fabric Workshop and Museum, the ICA Philadelphia and The Royal Hibernian Academy. The installation includes over 50 new works: sculpture from intimate to large scale, and inflatable, 2D drawing studies, completed works and photographs, felt collages and a shocking homunculus.

As ambitious a show as we have mounted at our new space, these ruminations on sex, space, safety and middle age should prove a highlight of the season.

A jukebox essential

Delighted to alert you to a 45 from a close friend of Fleisher/Ollman and quiet supernova of the Philadelphia music scene, Meg Baird. Meg has been central to the success of Drag City recording artists and international weirdos Espers for several years, and her solo material is a gift.

The record itself is a single as a single is supposed to be. Big beautiful picture, 500 copies, hit on the A side, a cappella on the flip. Five minutes of wonder. We may get a few copies in the gallery, but do well and buy from (another house favorite) North Philly label Tequila Sunrise Records.

"Heaven and Here"

Keen to point you towards Heaven and Here, a remarkable series of unfolding essays from noted national authors exclusively engaged with the HBO television series "The Wire" and the arguments it raises. We at Fleisher/Ollman Gallery do not watch much TV, but are enthusiastic about good writing and good internet. This passionate, whip-smart project will last as long as the program lasts. A worthwhile experiment.

The film documents Proenneke's life as he builds a homestead at the base of the Aleutian Penninsula, Alaska, in the late 1960's.

A local launch party, cocktail hour and reading will take place at Fleisher/Ollman on Saturday, July 15th.

Rip, Rig & Panic

Fleisher/Ollman Gallery is happy to invite you to the opening, tonight, of Rip Rig & Panic.

The title Rip, Rig and Panic appeared from space while we were throwing ideas around Isaac Resnikoff’s Port Richmond studio last month. It is the name of a 1965 album by Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Kirk could, and would, adopt any style from jazz history with great sensitivity and invention, often on multiple horns that, using circular breathing, he could play simultaneously and for a very long time without stopping. I find myself hard pressed at this instance to cite a Twentieth-Century artist who has done more with their gifts. Having said that, this show has nothing much to do with Rahsaan Roland Kirk. We mostly loved seeing the words rip, rig and panic together in a line, and these days such a reason is a legitimate, if completely goofy, curatorial signature. Beyond that, ripping, rigging and panicking are three unusual activities that people seem to be enjoying in America today.
