Extract from 'Good Work'
Artist: @agnesofdogg 'Good Work is a 7-channel video installation set up like an underground surveillance station. I worked with 8 members of a custodial staff whose shift hours are 11pm-6am.
I created a series of synchronized dance videos that play off each other as workers move from fulfilling the routine duties of their jobs to sudden moments of release and fantasy, and then back again to work.
The project brings forward the unseen and unknown workers of an institution and considers a viewers implicated role as voyeur, witness, or uncoverer of a secret system.
The Name is inspired by the Claire Denis film Beau Travail' ➡ FOLLOW us on @souvenirsfromearthtv ➡ WATCH us on the French cable: Freebox 211, Orange 221 and Bouygues 217 ➡ STREAM us live on sfe.tv

Zhou B Art Center artist InJung Oh is now hosting private art lessons for children, in her studio on the third floor of the Center!
The OH Art School was founded in 2009 to offer a fresh approach to arts education. It focuses on youth art education and offers open opportunities to expand students' horizons. From small group private lessons to portfolio development, the OH Art School enriches art education with new opportunities outside of school, and children can learn how to express themselves in a visually creative way while receiving individualized attention.
Limited at only 6 students maximum for each art teacher, the children will gain much needed individual attention while learning to think critically and express their feelings creatively. While learning new techniques with various materials, students will also learn to individually find their own ways of visual expression. All materials are included in the class, and most of the student works will be documented on 18" x 24" sketchbooks provided by the class (new student only). Class Schedules:
Mon 4 - 5:40pm 1st - 6th grade
Fri 4 - 5:40pm and 4:20- 5:40pm Kinder - 7 years old (include large scale painting classes)
Classes start this week, and registration is ongoing if space is available! To sign up for a private art session, contact the director and artist InJung Oh today at firstname.lastname@example.org

By the age of 5 it was clearly evident that I would pursue a life of creativity and was encouraged to do so by my parents. By the late 80's I had taken to pen & ink and shortly after started creating imagery using bold black lines that has since become a defining style of mine. In the early 90's I was introduced to the art of screen printing & decided to move to the Bay Area with the primary goal of working with the best print shops in the industry. While living in San Francisco I would stand on Upper Haight Street where I would sell my art for a $1 per copy & did so with great success. Over the years up to that point I had a constant aching desire to do something worthy, I yearned to do something that was for the better good of human kind. I decided to write a mission statement (pictured) and once I sold enough $1 art I would then give art away for free that had my mission statement on the back of each print which included my mothers mailing address in the event that anyone may want to write me. The response was overwhelming & at that point in time I felt a sense of purpose, I felt confident that I was on the right path, this marked the beginning of my "Art For The People" campaign. Now, 25 years later, I find myself reflecting & realizing how blessed I am to have discovered my passion, my purpose & the mission of making #artforthepeople

Mr Alfred Felton, you would be very proud of your latest bequest. A privilege and inspiration to have watched & learned as Ron Mueck created, and NGV facilitated “Mass” from concept to this.
We asked Ron how we should explain his work to a child? He answered, “We all have one of these under this,” as he knocked his head. It can be as simple or profound as you want. #triennial#thefeltonbequest#artforthepeople#giftsthatliveon#philanthropy#equitytrustees @ngvmelbourne

Weekends are for improvisations and surprises! Check out how our dancers performed improvs for some 50 seniors at the Mary Manning Walsh Home, New York, a few months ago. Our company regularly performs for people who would otherwise not have a chance to see dance performances. It is part of our company mission--to reach out and to touch souls with artistic surprises!
