A Mind-Blowing Dada Performance Salon Celebrating the NYC Launch of MAINTENANT 12 Dada Journal

Prepare for an evening of incredibly provocative, eclectic art and performance on as Three Rooms Press presents THE DADA DOZEN, a madcap Dada Salon at NYC’s renowned independent venue Le Poisson Rouge. The event includes the NYC launch of the internationally-renowned MAINTENANT 12: Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art (2018, Three Rooms Press), featuring more than 190 visual and literary works by artists and writers from around the world, in full color.

Be there: Wednesday, June 6, doors 6:30, show 7 pm in The Gallery at Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street (at Thompson), New York. Costumes encouraged: “Come as you aren’t.”

Three Rooms Press co-directors and New York-based performance artists Peter Carlaftes and Kat Georges will host. Featured performers include contributors to this year’s journal engaging in a variety of dada live art installations, including: Joel Allegretti, Mark Blickley, Meagan Brothers, Billy Cancel, Steve Dalachinsky, Gabriel Don, Jeff Farr, Thomas Fucaloro, Heide Hatry, Aimee Herman, Bob Holman, J.C. Hopkins, Alfonso Iandorio, Ron Kolm, Jane LeCroy, Patricia Leonard, Sophie Malleret, Lois Kagan Mingus, Valery Oisteanu, Anna O’Meara, Jane Ormerod, Kathleen Reichelt, Wesley Rickert, John Paul, Martina Salisbury, Katherine Sloan, Ann F. Unger, George Wallace, and Joanie H.F. Zosike.

MAINTENANT 12: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art serves up the controversial theme, “WE ARE ALL A ‘LIKE’.” With the rise in social media use—and abuse—the concept of “like” has reached whole new levels. There’s the idea of an individual’s reaction to events, people, images, etc. as a reduction to “Like” or “Dislike” without need for deeper consideration. Then there is the status factor: that something which is “Liked” by the largest number of people is of value. In fact, in the social media orbit, it is seemingly beneficial to offer strong, sharp, simplistic opinions—instead of nuanced, deeper, shaded considerations—simply because they provoke the greatest likelihood of widespread attention. How will this reduction of thought shape the future of interpersonal relations, intellectual advancement, and politics? As we teeter on the brink of nuclear war, the concept of Dada brilliantly encompasses the urgency of present times with both clarity and purposeful confusion.

The MAINTENANT series, established in 2005, gathers the work of renowned and emerging dada artists and writers from around the world. The series has been archived in leading international institutions including the Museum of Contemporary Art–New York, the BelVUE Museum–Brussels, and more. Renowned contributors have included artists Mark Kostabi, Raymond Pettibon, Giovanni Fontana, Jean-Jacques Lebel, and Kazunori Murakami. Writers have included Allen Ginsberg, Gerard Malanga, Charles Plymell, Jerome Rothenberg, and more, with a strong contingent of punk musician-artist-writers including Grant Hart, Mike Watt, and Exene Cervenka.

(Le) Poisson Rouge Event Tortoise at Le Poisson Rouge, 3-16-2016

(le) poisson rouge

(le) poisson rouge is a multimedia art cabaret founded by musicians on the site of the historic Village Gate. Dedicated to the fusion of popular and art cultures in music, film, theater, dance, and fine art, the venue’s mission is to revive the symbiotic relationship between art and revelry; to establish a creative asylum for both artists and audiences.

LPR prides itself in offering the highest quality eclectic programming, impeccable acoustics, and bold design. The state-of-the art performance space, engineered by the legendary John Storyk/WSDG, offers full flexibility in multiple configurations: seated, standing, in-the-round, and numerous alternative arrangements. The adjoining gallery space — The Gallery at LPR — functions as an art gallery, secondary bar, and event space. A work of art itself, the physical facilities are the embodiment of the experimental philosophy that drives the venue.

LPR is a source you can trust for exposure to visionary work, people of character, and a consistently dynamic environment. We invite you to immerse yourself in a nightlife of true substance and vitality.
