12. Alice Butler on Cookie Mueller

Alice Butler on Cookie Mueller

2 November 2017 Writer Alice Butler discusses the work of Cookie Mueller, engaging with themes of adolescence, personal performance and disease in Mueller’s short stories. Butler’s talk extends from her extensive research into Mueller’s life and work, and includes archival materials; a screening of Ira Sach’s 'Last Address'; and a public reading of Mueller’s writing. Alice Butler is a writer based in London, and a PhD researcher in Art History and Visual Studies at the University of Manchester. Her work has been published widely in the art press, including Cabinet, Art Monthly, gorse and Frieze. In 2012, she was the winner of the Frieze Writer’s Prize. Butler has written catalogue essays for artists such as Joanna Rajkowska, Lucy Clout, Marianna Simnett, and Kate Lyddon. In 2015, Butler was Jerwood Visual Arts Writer in Residence, and in 2016 she produced a series of miniature chapbooks for the 2016 Whitstable Biennale. This event forms part of the public programme accompanying 'Putti’s Pudding', an exhibition of works by Cookie Mueller and Vittorio Scarpati (9 September–12 November 2017). ‘Putti’s Pudding’ is a book and ‘final project’ by American writer and actor Mueller, and her husband, Italian artist Scarpati. Published in 1989, the same year both died from complications related to AIDS, it pairs drawings by Scarpati with writing by Mueller. Reimagined as an exhibition at Studio Voltaire, Putti’s Pudding features forty–five original felt–tip pen on notepad drawings made by Scarpati when he lost the ability to speak, accompanying texts by Mueller, and a public programme of talks, readings, screenings and performance.

18. Martin Myrone explores the work of Vittorio Scarpati

Martin Myrone explores the work of Vittorio Scarpati

12 September 2017 In her August 1989 Details column, Scarpati’s wife Cookie Mueller described his work as “a visual narrative that told of deep despair, sadness, and pain, but also hope, happiness, and joy […] a tale of hospital horror, a black comedy”. This is a unique opportunity to hear Myrone discuss Scarpati’s works in relation to his own research, which has centred on British art of the ‘long’ eighteenth century (c.1650–1850). He has a special interest in the work of Henry Fuseli, William Blake and history painting c.1750–1830, with a particular focus on questions of gender and identity and on the emerging exhibition cultures and art worlds of the period. At Tate Britain, Myrone’s curated projects include Gothic Nightmares: Fuseli, Blake and the Romantic Imagination (2006), William Blake’s 1809 Exhibition (2009) John Martin: Apocalypse (2011–12) and British Folk Art (2014). In 2010, he curated Tate’s exhibition Rude Britannia: British Comic Art. This event forms part of the public programme accompanying Putti’s Pudding, an exhibition of works by Cookie Mueller and Vittorio Scarpati (9 September–12 November 2017). Putti’s Pudding is a book and ‘final project’ by American writer and actor Mueller, and her husband, Italian artist Scarpati. Published in 1989, the same year both died from complications related to AIDS, it pairs drawings by Scarpati with writing by Mueller. Reimagined as an exhibition at Studio Voltaire, Putti’s Pudding features forty–five original felt–tip pen on notepad drawings made by Scarpati when he lost the ability to speak, accompanying texts by Mueller, and a public programme of talks, readings, screenings and performance.

19. Joke-Work: Paul Teasdale in conversation with Daniel Sinsel & Charlie Billingham

Joke-Work: Paul Teasdale in conversation with Daniel Sinsel & Charlie Billingham

25 March 2017 Paul Teasdale, writer and editor of frieze.com, leads a panel discussion with artists Daniel Sinsel and Charlie Billingham. The talk considers how artists make use of ‘joke-work’, engaging disobedient relationships between humour, confession, troubled histories and sexual pleasure. The event takes place within the exhibition Amelie von Wulffen, ‘The misjudged Bimpfi’. In a recent text reflecting on von Wulffen’s practice artist Amy Sillman described how she “enacts what Freud calls the ‘joke-work’ partly by a consistent sense of doubling – pairing, mirroring, transposing and displacing”. The talk will explore the subject of ‘joke-work’ both within the exhibition and the wider landscape of contemporary painting. Paul Teasdale (b. 1984, Nottingham) is a writer and editor of frieze.com based in London. Daniel Sinsel (b.1976, Munich) lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions include Sadie Coles HQ, London; Office Baroque, Brussels (both 2016); Chicharrón, Casa Maauad, Cuauhtémoc, Mexico (2015) and Chisenhale Gallery, London (2011). Recent group exhibitions include Making & Unmaking: An exhibition curated by Duro Olowu, Camden Arts Centre, London (2016); British Art Show 8 (touring, 2015-2016); MIRRORCITY: 23 London Artists, Hayward Gallery, London (2014); and Notes on Neo-Camp, Office Baroque, Antwerp, Belgium; Studio Voltaire, London (2013). Charlie Billingham (b.1984, London) lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions include: Schaulust, Supportico Lopez, Berlin, Germany (2015); Free Time, Emalin, Zuoz, Switzerland (2014); Tender 2 The Sunshine Room, OHWOW, Los Angeles, CA (2014); Coming Out, Royal Academy, London, UK (2013). Recent group exhibitions include Figure.Out, with Dale Lewis, Rose Wylie, Union Gallery, London (2017); A Scratching Not a Biting, Bureau, New York (2016); The Ultimate Vessel, Koppe Astner, Glasgow, UK and Nobody Home, curated by Gigiotto Del Vecchio, A Palazzo, Brescia (both 2015).
