Kate Harding –Field Experiments in A Long and Short Time Comin: Seeing It Through/Seeing Through It 

An intimate dialogue between Kate Harding and Jovana Stokic, introduced by Magnus Schaefer, and to include screenings of Harding’s video in the context of the exhibition. -On Sunday, October 27th. Open from 1 pm; the talk starts at 2 pm.

Kate Harding is an artist living and working between New York and rural Missouri who examines the specificity of site and the local to explore concepts of landscape and inter-subjective perception. Exploring the relationship of language and topology, she regularly uses her body’s movement through landscape as a tool of measure, in a process of “field experiments.” Harding’s systematic approach to mapping terrain intersects with speech and movement, inviting consideration of embodied communication and ways of knowing and memory. Interdisciplinary in material and approach, Harding’s background in garment design and construction often provides a metaphoric structure to her work, as does research in science, history, critical philosophy, folklore and the colloquial phrase. Regularly engaging in collaborative and curatorial projects, Harding is the host of Bicoastal Carpool, a weekly radio program airing live on WPIR Pratt Radio since 2016. She currently is faculty at Parsons, The New School in New York City and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.

Jovana Stokic is a Belgrade-born, New York-based art historian and curator. She holds a PhD from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Her dissertation, The Body Beautiful: Feminine Self-Representations 1970–2007, analyzes works of Marina Abramovic, Martha Rosler, Joan Jonas particularly focusing on the notion of self-representation. Stokic was a fellow at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; a researcher at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the curator of the Kimmel Center Galleries, New York University; and the performance curator at Location One, New York. She is currently on the faculty of the MFA Art Practice, SVA and NYU Steinhardt Department of Art and Art Professions. Her book on contemporary performance art will be published by Bloomsbury in February 2020.

Magnus Schaefer is an art historian, writer and curator, and lives in New York.

Dizzy Magazine Issue 4 Launch
Sunday October 14th, 2018, 6–8pm

We are pleased to announce the launch of Dizzy Magazine‘s fourth issue at 3A Gallery, Sunday October 14. The new issue features Emma Kohlmann, Susan Cianciolo and Lilac Sky, Alake Shilling, Maya Maxx, and more.

Dizzy is a New York based publisher and intergenerational print magazine focusing on the arts: painting, writing, film, music, style, and more. Featuring artists from diverse backgrounds, Dizzy strives to bridge gaps between age and exposure. Dizzy’s inclusion of fun sections like 12 and Under (featuring children’s artwork), Pet Page (featuring an artist’s pet), and Dear Destiny (advice column with Princess Nokia) allow the magazine to be accessible to readers of all races, genders, and ages.

“In a publishing world crowded with overreaching art journals, the magazine strikes a refreshingly unpretentious tone that aims to forge connections between communities. Flipping through the pages, I was reminded of everything from BOMB magazine—which Libin cited as an inspiration—to the legendary Midwestern graffiti magazine Life Sucks Die. It is nice to read something that makes you remember what you loved about magazines in the first place.”

Dizzy Magazine was founded by Arvid Logan and Milah Libin in the summer of 2016.

A Performance by Andrew Lampert
Sunday September 9th, 2018
Doors open 2 pm, The Performance 3pm, Doors close 5 pm

Hey Jeff,

Writing ahead of time about something that I won’t necessarily do, at least not as described, always gives me pause. I don’t want to reveal too much, yet at the same time realize that descriptive information helps entice a potential audience to discover, alongside me, what I’m doing. So, here it is:

Title: As Opposed To Gravity
Year: 2018
Length: Unknown

This performance will be presented alongside another piece of audio:

Title: What’s Your Favorite Movie? (Adolfas Mekas)
Year: 2010
Length: 2:37

I’m not trying to be mysterious, it’s just that what I’ll do is speculative until it happens. A plan exists, but the reality of things is that I can’t entirely predict the outcome, or how it will be experienced by those of us in the gallery, since we are all in it together. I’m committed to not knowing too much in advance about the results of my ideas.

In lieu of a better description, I might mention that As Opposed To Gravity is site-specific and made in direct response to your installation. In fact it includes your footage, which will be projected on 16mm. Your exhibit is concerned with the loop, the circle, the perimeter, and what I’m thinking to do focuses on the center, the space between. I’ll be in the middle. That’s all I can really think of to say other than that I’ll probably never do this piece again after the 3A show. Maybe that is what we should be telling people.

Thanks again,

Who was the Ambassador of Lapland? How might we archive that which does not exist physically anymore? And how do cameras see spaces? 3A Gallery is pleased to present a conversation with Jeff Preiss on the occasion of his exhibition TITLE for Adolfas Mekas. Joined by curators Alaina Claire Feldman (CUNY) and Magnus Schaefer (MoMA) a conversation among friends will attempt to attend to these questions, while also diving into the history of film technology and anecdotal experiences.

A Talk – “Tres amigos y la musica”

I am delighted to announce this talk on the occasion of Nicolás Guagnini’s show “The Walrus” at 3A Gallery.

“ I am he as you are he as you are me / And we are all together ”

What a peculiar poem. To me, it’s too optimistic that say “And we are all together,” very utopia; I don’t like the idea “utopia.” I don’t believe it. 

However, being in a band would be everybody’s dream, don’t you think? 
Musical audiences understood musicians more than their parents. 
Audiences listen to the music, then deeply think about the lyrics, and they are emotional about it. 
Audiences see that the musician as an icon. 
I don’t need to say anything more because of Dan Graham’s “Rock My Religion” explained everything. 
But, we still need to discuss bands, and music because out understanding never stops, and we are all involved in the culture and the society; we are still alive. 

I’m glad to have this occasion the talk of these three amazing people, each having completely different positions and of different origin. 
Canadian, American, and Argentina will talk about it. It’s very New York, which is a melting pot. They are friends.

“The Missing Fundamental: Mystery, Intonation and Innuendo” – A conversation with Kate Harding and Nat CastañedaSaturday June 24, 2017, 2-3pm

(Broadcast only. 3A Gallery will not be open this Saturday. Links to be shared prior through event page)

Broadcast live from a closed 3A Gallery, Harding and Castañeda will seal themselves in Harding’s immersive exhibition, Uphill Downhill Conversation, (Sister) for one hour to activate the space of private intersubjective “conversation.” This event is viewable by the public by way of watching the two Facebook Live feeds provided prior to the event, resulting in a two channel video work. Castañeda admittedly finds verbal conversational expression irresistible, a compatriot means of understanding and intimacy, while Harding for her overt wordiness at times, finds coded speech lacking the resonance of connection. Gestural language, sound outbursts, harmonics, reading out loud, comedy and theremin exploration contexts may ensue as Harding and Castañeda explore through this sited field experiment. The structure of their conversation to be revealed at 2pm, Saturday, June 24th. This live broadcast is made possible by viewing on Facebook Live through Harding and Castañeda’s separate feeds for a two-channel performance. Links to be shared on this event page prior.

This is the second performative conversation by Harding, the first “Omne ignotum pro magnifico,” with artist Dana Osburn, took place in a laundromat for the duration of one wash/dry cycle, their voices being heard, and actions viewed from an across the street vista point within Harding’s exhibition, “Both and All But None Too Bright” in 2014. This will be Harding and Castañeda’s  second live broadcast conversation together, having in late 2016 cohosted an episode of “Bicoastal Carpool” together, Harding’s weekly internet radio show on WPIR Pratt Radio.

Before you become an interesting individual, you need many good friends in your life.

In my opinion the most impressive art scene was a group of artists and friends centered around the gallery, 47 Canal. They started at a building located at 179 Canal; they were all artist tenants and friends. Many wonderful shows were thrown at this building before the group moved. When they moved to the new location, it was the ideal space for an artists’ gallery. Again, the gallery owner and the artists were all friends. Now, 47 Canal is one of the most interesting figures of the New York art scene. They were able to make it due to their strong friendships.

I know another interesting group of artists who live in Köln, Frances Scholz and Mark von Schlegell. They occasionally come to New York to converse with Dan Graham. Also Dan occasionally visits Köln. Their conversations are fragmentary but continued.

France’s paintings are dynamic and organic and have a very human touch. At the same time, her intention is very deliberate, and her work often shows the amazing power of nature. Mark is a science fiction writer who includes sexuality in his novels. Young Dan wished to be a writer once but he is an artist now. His passion for reading keeps him connected with Mark. These three artists love and respect each other and are all interesting individuals. Frances made a film based on Mark’s story, “Starlite” (2010-2012), The writing and filming took place simultaneously, the processes mutually-influencing one another.

The screening of the film will be followed by a conversation with the couple, and Dan will offer his edgy opinion.

Science fiction enthusiast, Alaina Claire Feldman, will moderate the talk.


Frances Scholz is based in Köln, Germany. She has been professor of painting at the Braunschweig University of Art since 2002. Her work is represented by: Tif Sigfrids, Los Angeles, Sprüth Magers Berlin and London.

Mark von Schlegell is an art writer and science fiction novelist based in Köln, Germany. He teaches writing at Städelschule in Frankfurt.

Dan Graham is an artist and writer, lives in New York and works worldwide.

Alaina Claire Feldman is a curator and writer, and Director of Exhibitions at Independent Curators International (ICI). She lives and works in NY.

-MET Rooftop to WUNDERLUST/WANDERKAMMER at 3A Gallery and more!

Dan Graham (Artist), Günther Vogt (Director, Vogt Landscape Architects), David Seiter (Principal/Design Director, Future Green Studio)
Moderator: Miguel Angel Baltierra (Architect)

Dan Graham and Günther Vogt were aware of and admired each other’s work for approximately 10 years. Their first collaboration work was the Novartis Campus Park in Basel, Switzerland in 2005. The MET Rooftop installation in 2014 was their second collaboration. For Vogt, the MET Rooftop was his smallest project. And then, Günther Vogt challenged himself to make a much smaller project at 3A Gallery; WUNDERLUST/WANDERKAMMER (March 4th , 2016 to May 29th, 2016) was equally successful!
David Seiter’s firm, Future Green Studio, installed both the MET Rooftop installation and the WUNDERLUST/WANDERKAMMER at 3A Gallery. Future Green Studio is now installing Vogt’s most recent project in New York at the MET Breuer.
Miguel Angel Baltierra, Archtect and host of the AIANY Oculus Podcast series, will moderate a discussion with these creatively important figures regarding their collaborative experiences, love for art, landscape architecture, and friendship.
