Annette Peacock gives a very rare performance at 8 p.m. tonight at Brooklyn's First Unitarian Congregational Society. Co-presented with Blank Forms.

Galaxie 500's Damon Krukowski on Peacock for The New Yorker: "I was introduced to Peacock’s music by a guitarist friend in Spain, Ibon Errazkin, who said to me, 'It sounds like a person thinking. The way the songs unfold reminds me of the way our inner thoughts develop inside our heads, and perhaps that’s what makes them sound so intimate and personal—almost like something that is prior to making oneself heard.'"

“I felt compelled to make a pure, autonomous album . . . to hear outside of me an unadulterated representation of a music that I hear inside of me. I always need to be on the frontier where the freedom is, and that can be a lonely place.”

Your Last Chance to See One of New York’s Great Gallery Spaces

"The show is among the curatorial surprises regularly delivered by this venerable alternative space, which in its latest incarnation tends to thrill while causing pangs of I’m-so-out-of-it insecurity. ... Its overdue introduction to New York is an altogether amazing last ride into the sunset for 38 Greene Street and Artists Space as we know it. May the gods of real estate and culture favor its next incarnation."

Who's going to become the first W.A.G.E. Certified museum?

The next deadline for applications to be W.A.G.E. Certified is Wednesday, June 1 - guidelines and instructions on how to apply can be found here: http://www.wageforwork.com/certification/3/how-to-get-certified

#WageRage

Dear New Museum,

You recently announced expansion plans that will double the amount of space you currently occupy on the Bowery and that you have already successfully raised $43 million of the $80 million needed to do it.

Congratulations – that's big news. It could also be big news for the hundreds of artists who supply the content for your programs each year. After all, if you plan to double in size, surely there will be a significant increase in the number of programs being produced, which would surely provide income to more of the artists upon whose work your existence is predicated.

If you were W.A.G.E. Certified that would certainly be the case, since you'd have committed to paying artists according to minimum standards of compensation.

However, since you have not yet chosen to become W.A.G.E. Certified we recognize that you may not yet have considered how much it would cost to pay for the additional content that this new space is presumably intended to accommodate. Which is why, on the occasion of your recent announcement, we'd like to share with you some projections of our own. We hope these numbers will put in perspective what the cost of your expansion means relative to the cost of paying artists for their work.

If you had been W.A.G.E. Certified in fiscal year 2014 (July 1, 2013 – June 30, 2014) and had paid minimum fees according to W.A.G.E. standards, you would have spent a total of about $301,000.

$301,000 is 2.2% of your total operating budget of $13,971,884 in FY 2014.

$301,000 would have paid 184 artists, 16 of whom supplied your exhibitions and 168 of whom provided the content of your public programs.

$301,000 is almost exactly half of the salary of your highest paid employee.

$301,000 is 0.7% of the $43 million you just raised.

New Museum, do you remember the letter we wrote you back in 2010? At the time, we were so concerned that we even attempted an intervention to get you to change. We attach that letter here.

Today we write to you again with a simple suggestion. We are confident of your openness to it since your director Lisa Phillips was just quoted as saying that the expansion is "about trying to do things that museums haven't done yet or maybe even imagined."

We suggest that you imagine becoming the first W.A.G.E. Certified museum. We also suggest that you consider asking collector and philanthropist Toby Devan Lewis, one of the museum's longtime supporters, who just provided the biggest single donation in the institution's history, if she would be willing to provide the funds that would make it possible for you to get certified. We believe that as a collector and a philanthropist she is invested in providing direct support to working artists.

We're here whenever you're ready.

Most sincerely,
Working Artists and the Greater Economy

"What is significant, in part, about Rowland’s work is not so much that his objects appear to be in the wrong place, as was the case with Duchamp’s readymades, but that they are emphatically in the right place—at least at Artists Space, which is a nonprofit institution able to take advantage of Corcraft’s services."

In Cameron Rowland’s ‘91020000,’ Disquieting Sculptures

"Mr. Rowland’s scrutiny has a particular grinding force. Here it accrues inexorably into an argument in the form of art for reparations. By making us look through his stubborn objects, back to their physical origins, to the systems they serve and to the corrosive practices that they perpetuate, they make viscerally real America’s tragic racial divide. They press on us an understanding that must become much deeper, and more encompassing, if the virulent heritage of slavery is ever to be eliminated."

91020000 by Cameron Rowland reviewed by Roberta Smith in The New York Times
