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

(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.
