THE LYRICAL


Private Choice Public Fight by Barbara Lubliner

Six Women Artists: An Ongoing Lyric Approach
An online exhibition of six NY Artists Circle members 
Curated by Jonathan Goodman

The exhibition traces the lyrical impulse that emerged in abstract expressionism and how it continues through the work of the selected artists. Goodman says the artists bring forward abstract art in a way that both remains attached to and moves beyond this idiom and the work is often a mixture of abstraction and figuration.

Featured artists: Marianne Barcellona, Lois Bender, Maggie Hinders, Diana Hobson, Barbara Lubliner and Nancy Nikkal. 

Jonathan Goodman writes art critical essays for Brooklyn Rail and other art media.

Fluxfest 2019


"It was wonderful to be at the 10th annual Fluxfest with amazing Fluxus minded artists from around the world!" ~Barbara Lubliner

The 2019 Fluxfest was held in Toronto in June. Dozens of scores were performed including Yoko Ono's "Cut Piece" at two different venues by the event organizer Allan Revich. Renata Strada and Giovanni Strada, Italian artists know as the "StradaDadas" performed "Imagine Peace." C. Mehrl Bennett invited Bibiana Padilla Maltos and Barbara Lubliner to join her Re-interpretation of Alison Knowles original event score: Braid (1964). While there were nods to historic work, Welsh artists Daniel-Wyn Jones and Richard McReynolds performed all new scores written since 2018. 

The festival was rich with experimentation and the embrace of absurdity. Photo and video documentation can be found on the Fluxlist Facebook page.
