Learning Through Performance: An Evening with Ernesto Pujol, at SVA, New York

Thursday, March 17 | 6:30PM

School of Visual Arts
335 West 16th St Fl 1,  New York
 

MFA Art Practice presents site-specific performance artist, social choreographer and faculty member Ernesto Pujol discussing his practice. Pujol is known for his silent, durational, walking performances as portraits of people and places within familiar landscapes and architecture that have nevertheless become invisible. His performances have often served as mausoleums or monuments to forgotten or remembered but unresolved social issues, which have been mourned or reflected upon during the experience. He is the author of Sited Body, Public Visions: Silence, Stillness and Walking as Performance Practice and numerous anthologized essays.

Ernesto Pujol’s “Social Choreography” in Lower Manhattan

Pujol was born in Cuba and raised there and in Puerto Rico. As a site-specific public performance artist, his work explores concepts of collective identity, spirituality, and the notion of the artist as a citizen and cultural worker. “I believe that everyone has the right to culture,” he has stated. “And I mean critical culture rather than entertainment. Critical culture is a human right.” His performance practice is based on walking—“durational group performances as public art,” as he states in his website, creating “psychic restorative portraits of peoples and places across the U.S.” Most recently, Pujol choreographed a work presented this past summer at the Istanbul Modern Art Museum, in collaboration with Jeffrey Baykal-Rollins and the Silsila Collective.

Time After Us was presented as part of “Crossing the Line,” an annual festival of interdisciplinary and performance art presented in New York by the French Institute Alliance Française. It took place in Saint Paul’s Chapel, one of the oldest churches in New York, which opened for Episcopal services in 1776.

ERNESTO PUJOL: The Bathers Revisited at Magnan Metz Gallery, NY

October 21st – November 19th 2011

MAGNAN METZ GALLERY

521 West 26th Street, New York, NY 10001

Magnan Metz is pleased to present The Bathers, Revisited.  This small exhibition will be on view from October 21 – November 19, 2011.  Pujol recently joined Magnan Metz.  As an introduction to his performance work, the artist is a re-staging a selection of performative photographs in Magnan Metz project space from his successful 2001 series.  The Bathers are revisited a decade later, and is a curatorial compliment to the exhibition of Ariana Page Russell which will run concurrently in the main gallery.
During summer 2001, Ernesto Pujol photographed the solitary rituals of masculinity, i.e. male bodies privately regarding themselves. Pujol choreographed a series of intimate gestures, inviting three men in their 20s, 30s and 40s to perform in the same white bathroom. These were not larger-than-life porn stars relaxing after the money shot, nor towering drag queens wiping off makeup. There was nothing extraordinary about them, no tanned musculature or model beauty. Pujol was interested in exploring the male gaze turned on itself, placing men in the position traditionally inhabited by women in the history of painting.1

Ernesto Pujol – Walking Ground at The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu, Hawaii

May 27- October 2, 2011

The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu

2411 Makiki Heights Drive
Honolulu, Hawaii 96822

The Contemporary Museum will present both an exhibition and a performance work by American artist Ernesto Pujol (born in Cuba, 1957), a conceptual artist and educator with an interdisciplinary art practice who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Pujol first became known during the 1990s for a series of site-specific installation projects that dealt with collective and individual memory. His more recent work has taken a political turn in addressing subjects such as war, ecological issues, loss, and mourning. Since 2006, Pujol has been exploring the notions of interiority and public and private spaces. He strives to reclaim public space from the noise and congestion to create silent spaces of solitude and seeks to awaken the consciousness of the viewer through the creation of such spaces.

For his one-week residency at Location One, site-specific performance artist and social choreographer Ernesto Pujol responds to curator Jovana Stokic’s challenge to “inhabit the space” through an open flexible daily program of rehearsals, movement exercises, individual gestures, and open times, all-supportive of individual and group practice.

During the past decade, Ernesto Pujol has transformed his solo public performance commissions into field schooling for graduate art students and collaborations with artists through a methodology of transparency, generosity, trust, and shared resources.
