Robots Liberate the Workforce: A Jennifer Moon Songbook
Ham & Eggs, Tuesday, May 29th, 8pm

I am very excited about this event!! It will be super delightful and I hope you can make it!

X-TRA invited Malik Gaines to be the first X-TRA Forums, a series of programs using the 20-year archive of contemporary art quarterly X-TRA as a springboard. In 1998, Malik did an interview for X-TRA with Kira Lynn Harris, Sergio Muñoz-Sarmiento, Kori Newkirk and Jennifer Moon titled “Young, Gifted, and Confused: 4 Emerging Artists Talk Politics.”

On a personal level, Malik and I have known each other since our college years in the early 90s at UCLA. Throughout our friendship and collaborative projects, Malik wrote and composed a total of eight songs (plus one instrumental song for a video about Canada 😁). I remember writing these unwieldy, rambling, lengthy essays (if I can even call them essays) about robots liberating the workforce and my semi-neoliberal plans to "save" the world and Malik would transform them into genius, catchy pop songs that could get anyone to sing along with Deedra Swan's quest for world domination. When I use the word genius, I am not aggrandizing. After 20+ years, these songs are still gems 💎!

This very special evening of songs and readings orchestrated by Malik Gaines will be performed by friends we've know from our 90s until now! FEATURING: Joshua Chambers-Letson, Malik Gaines, Jade Gordon, Giles Miller, Jennifer Moon, Will Schwartz, Alexandro Segade, Gabie Strong, and Karen Tongson❣️

A Breach in the Realm of Beliefs
Armory Center for the Arts, February 18—June 10

I added a third and last video that plays in between the two projected Moana-inspired music videos 🎤👩🏻✨ in my evolving video installation A Breach in the Realm of Beliefs! This final Trinitron video is titled, “Jennifer wants to change art funding models” 🆕🎨💰. There's less than three weeks to see this new video and all four shows; so if you haven't visited the Armory yet, now's a good time (and here's a lovely write-up of the shows: "Birth, Death, & Mr. Snuggles: Four Unique Shows at the Pasadena Armory Center For The Arts" by Patrick Quinn in Art and Cake)! AND, as you will see in my new video, I'm looking for sponsors 😁. If you have the resources and are interested in supporting my work, check out this Prezi as a preview and contact me to schedule a sponsor presentation 🐣. Let's find that breach in the realm of beliefs TOGETHER 💥🕳🌈❣️

Related Programs
In conjunction with my evolving video installation A Breach in the Realm of Beliefs, I'm facilitating a series of three workshops at the Armory that focus on the implementation of Revolution-based activities. The first workshop focused on a Death of Self. The second workshop presented Operation Scrooge. The third and last Revolution Workshop is June 9. Topic TBD!

Jennifer Moon: A Breach in the Realm of Beliefs has been organized by Irene Tsatsos, Director of Exhibition Programs/Chief Curator, and has been produced with generous support from Kang Seung Lee and Geoffrey Wall.

✨Mr. Snuggles FOREVER✨
Armory Center for the Arts, February 18—June 10

✨Mr. Snuggles FOREVER✨, a fantastical collaborative installation with laub in the stairwell of the Armory, is also on view through June 10th! Fifteen enchanted banners, designed by laub and sewn by laub and my mom with help from Rachel Silver, line the walls of the Armory stairwell and tell the story of Mr. Snuggles' life, death, and afterlife 💖🐶💖. Mr. Snuggles' beautifully articulated skeleton with glass wings is suspended above the stairwell as his spirit continues to fly in dark matter/dark energy and the quantum realms 🌬⛵️. ✨Mr. Snuggles FOREVER✨ fanny pack (taxidermy and leatherwork by Divya Anantharaman) is also on display in the PAA gallery, up the stairs on the left when entering the foyer from the street. Mr. Snuggles is truly FOREVER 😊❣️

✨Mr. Snuggles FOREVER✨ has been organized by Irene Tsatsos, Director of Exhibition Programs/Chief Curator, and has been produced with the generous support of Christopher Yin and John Yoon.
