"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination...always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: 'It's not where you take things from—it's where you take them to.'"—Jim Jarmusch, "Golden Rules of Filmmaking," 2002 #PAAManifesto #Film #JimJarmusch #JeanLucGodard
“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. ‘All current art is fake, not because it is copy, appropriation, simulacra or imitation, but because it lacks the critical push of power, guts, and passion. All of man is fake. All of man is false. Not only because he cheats and lies with charming ease and hates and kills with determined speed, but also because man’s new cyber form is Man as God.'”—Elaine Sturtevant, “Shifting Mental Structures,” 1999 #PAAManifesto #ConceptualArt

“No to spectacle. No to virtuosity. No to transformations and magic and make-believe. No to the glamour and the transcendency of the star image. No to the heroic. No to the anti-heroic. No to trash imagery. No to involvement of performer or spectator. No to style. No to camp. No to seduction of spectator by the wiles of the performer. No to eccentricity. No to moving or being moved.”—Yvonne Rainer, “No Manifesto,” 1965 #PAAManifesto
Happy Holidays from all of us at the Armory! Wishing you a happy, healthy, prosperous, and art-filled season.
