Group Launches Virtual Campaign Space on Sixth Anniversary of Illegal Detentions at Guantánamo

CONTACT:; (212) 549-2666

NEW YORK – The American Civil Liberties Union today announced a new site in Second Life (SL) as part of its Close Guantánamo campaign. January 11, 2008 marks the six-year anniversary of the arrival of prisoners at Guantánamo Bay. The new virtual space includes "Gone GITMO," a program produced by Nonny de la Peña and Peggy Weil and built by SL architect Buhbuhcuh Fairchild. The program gives Second Life residents a glimpse into the inhumane conditions of indefinite detention at Camp X-Ray. While visiting the space, residents can also sign a petition and wear virtual orange clothing as a way to express opposition to torture and indefinite detention at the U.S.-run prison.

Rodney Dickson- Love at it's Best

Rodney Dickson- Love at it's Best
Gasser & Grunert Gallery

148 Ninth Avenue, at the Northeastern corner with 19th Street.
Tuesday, January 8th – Saturday, February 9th 2008
Opening Reception January 8, 6.00PM - 8PM

Hi Thing:

If you are free this tuesday and are in New York we recommend stopping by Rodney's first solo exhibition with Gasser & Grunert Gallery in Chelsea. Love at it's Best a multi-media installation, is a culmination of many years work and research. Those of you may know his work through his performance installation The Queen Bee Snake Bar and his more recent Queen Bee War Remnants Museum that premiered as a featured special project at Art|Basel Miami Beach. His work is very strong and engages in an honest and informed social dialogue about War that you dont get to see everyday, especially in Chelsea.

This exhibition is sure to inspire others to become more socio-politically concerned and to make more art with meaning in these days of an overly commercialized artworld and big brothers clones knocking at our doors. Show is up through February 9th.

Love at It's Best is an analysis of warfare, sexual exploitation and genocide, which aims to shed light on the plight of the civilians whose lives have been tainted by these brutal realities.

‘I’m all out of love, I’m so lost without you
I know you were right, believing for so long
I’m all out of love, what am I without you
I can’t be too late to say I was so wrong’

“Kunst muss hangen!” – Basel Pesto

Upon my return from Miami Basel, I have a bad morning dream, a common one for art historians. I am preparing to participate in a panel discussion... the chair, a friendly man I know slightly (who was he?), approaches me as everyone readies: "Where are your slides?" he asks. I have none. And no notes. I don't even know the topic. "I thought this was an informal colloquium kind of thing," I reply.
