Stendhal Gallery
Opening: Greetings from Daddaland Exhibition
and Dada Machine Fluxus Performance

"Stendhal Gallery presents the exhibition, Greetings from Daddaland: Fluxus, Mail Art and Rubber Stamps, opening April 15 through May 25. The exhibition is drawn from the collections of John Held, Jr. of San Francisco and Picasso (Daddaland) Gaglione of Chicago, collectively known as The Fake Picabia Brothers.

The present Stendhal Gallery exhibition continues the exploration of avant-garde art Gaglione and Held began tracing together in the 1970s. Gaglione and Held presented a showcase for Fluxus, Mail Art and rubber stamp art at The Stamp Art Gallery in San Francisco during the mid-1990s. The current exhibition documents the gallery’s activities through posters, exhibition catalogs, performance documentation, mail art, artist postage stamps, rubber stamp box sets made to commemorate the various exhibitions and excerpts from past Stamp art Gallery exhibitions."

Fluxus with Tools - A Performance/Lecture with Hannah Higgins
Birds of a Feather with Charles Curtis

"Fluxus with Tools is a performance lecture/event combining vintage Fluxus scores with insightful writings - both scholarly and humorous - by Hannah Higgins. All this activity is executed on a tabletop with sound augmentation by Knowles.

Rice and Beans for Charles Curtis, (2008) is a handmade score created by Alison Knowles for the renowned cellist Charles Curtis, who takes pleasure in encountering and performing challenging musical notations made for him by composers and artists. This score is composed of wet flax pulp, lentils, rice and a tangle of strings poured out flat, pressed, and dried." Read more here ...
