BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

LACE is delighted to host the launch of the latest edition of NATIVE STRATEGIES\, the performance art journal of Los Angeles! This limited edition issue looks closely at the ways performance artists use ritual and whose work draws inspiration from the images and affectations of spiritual ity. These artists occupy wildly divergent positions relating to their audi ence\; this is the congregation we call an artistic community. The featured artists' performances at Human Resources this past February 1st and 2nd ra nged in tone\, from sincerity and gentleness\, to humor and fierceness. 

\n

Also at stake in this issue is the notion of the document as an activator of performance. Tanya Rubbak's essay on the subject of des ign as mediumship was put into action as the artists created separate small documents integrated into their performances as totemic objects\, maps\, g uides\, and offerings. 

\n

NS#3 features interviews with < strong>Sam White\, Cynthia Carr\, Samara Golden\, Alexa Weir\, Liz Glynn\ , Jane Brucker\, Rafa Esparza\, S ignify\, Sanctify\, Believe\, an d Amanda Yates\, with essays by  Tanya Rubbak and Brian Getnick. Designed by Tanya Rubbak

\n

We are excited to present at the launch a performance by Lee Relvas of Rind in the rear gallery. Positioned next to Andrea Fraser ’s Un monumento as Fantasias Decartadas (A Monument to Discarded Fantas ies)\, Revlas will perform an excerpt from The Porous World\,  a virtuosically sung mini opera in which Relvas subtly ma nipulates a family of moon-like faces into configurations on free standing poles.  She describes this work as "self-portraiture to create his torical artifacts of (herself) in the future\, using light and shadow to re veal the porous mesh between the past and the yet-to-come."
