THE CANDIDATE Ernest Owens’ second shot at redemption. By Yowei Shaw

T

his week, Penn campus’ storied Locust Walk was abloom with Day-Glo posters and ill-inspired slogans (“Need a Ham Job? Kate Ham for Wharton Rep!”) — all asking for one thing: a vote in this year’s student government elections. Among the various races (each class elects its own “class board” as well as delegates to the general “undergraduate assembly”), to be decided Friday, one stands out: the contest for the presidency of the soon-to-be sophomore class of 2014. There are only two candidates. In one corner: Ernest Owens, a flamboyant and somewhat notorious freshman with a sweet-pitched drawl and a penchant for drama. Owens is black, from inner-city Houston, and came to Penn from the top of his class on a full ride. He also ran last fall for freshman prez. His competitor and polar opposite: incumbent freshman president Spencer Penn (yes, his name is Penn). Penn is white, enrolled in the Wharton Business School, and came to Penn from the elite Horace Mann School in New York. He roundly beat Owens, who came in third place in what was arguably the most ambitious, bizarre and surprisingly controversial student campaign in recent memory. Last year, Owens entered the 10-person race for freshman president with an aggressive — some felt annoying — approach. He sent out brash emails, touting his inner-city credentials among his Ivy League peers. He maintained a daily video blog in which he often

shot barbs at his opponents. He continuously Facebook-spammed everyone he could with fervent pleas to vote for him. But the real controversy began on the last night of the election, when Owens was informed of a formal accusation of electoral misconduct, filed by competitor Spencer Penn. Penn said Owens had improperly carried his laptop around to get votes, clicking “submit” for other students; Owens says he did nothing wrong (Spencer Penn declined to comment for this article). Owens would have to face a student committee hearing — “The Trials of Ernest,” as another student later dubbed the affair in a five-part series posted on YouTube. Owens was eventually disqualified (but did win a general assembly seat). But in a quixotic attempt to clear his name, Owens launched a self-styled media blitz and, almost overnight, became a local sensation: He mass-emailed students that he was an “innocent candidate in a trial against a spiteful jackass”; he launched a radio show, “Ernestly Speaking!” which featured Owens’ further ruminations and musical stylings. He was also quoted in the school’s paper saying he was up against a “conspiracy” and a “witch hunt,” and that race could have been a factor in the ruling against him — an accusation that alienated peers black and white. A black student newspaper, The Vision, published an op-ed criticizing Owens for his remark. He claims he was misquoted. Students began to mock Owens anonymously online — “Penn isn’t an MTV reality show, Ernest,” wrote one on a school gossip blog. “What shall it profit a man if he shall

✚ WINGS OF DESIRE Anyone seen the Guardian Angels around Philly lately? Greg Bucceroni sure hasn’t. And no, he’s not surprised. A Philadelphia-based anti-crime activist, Bucceroni has had plenty to say about the Angels lately — and none of it nice. It was during the scary weeks while the Kensington Strangler roamed free, you might recall, that the New York-based Guardian Angels — a volunteer-based, nonprofit crime-fighting organization that dates back to the ’70s, and of which Bucceroni was once a member — descended on Philly, patrolling the streets of Kensington in their trademark red berets and garnering no little attention from the media. That, Bucceroni charges, was their chief intention: “You won’t see them unless the news media is around.” The Angels have been parachuting into the most media-rich environments they can find not just to spread their message of community self-empowerment, Bucceroni claims, but to further their agenda of nabbing an A&E reality TV show. Indeed, the Angels did have such a show, briefly — A&E produced a “test run” in 2009 that didn’t pan out. Bucceroni believes they’re trying again. Weeks after their appearance in Philadelphia, the Angels appeared en masse across the river, in Camden, right in time for a glut of press over the city’s laying off nearly half its police force. Bucceroni’s biggest beef, though, isn’t the attention they’re getting. It’s their methods. He points to several old YouTube videos in which Angels are seen throwing (seemingly random) Kensington dudes against a walls, searching them, and removing drugs (and, in one case, a syringe) from their persons — all, somewhat inexplicably, the Angels say on the video, to stop the flow of drugs to a housing project in Atlantic City (CP doesnt get it, either).

“Guardian Angels are not police officers — they have no authority to do any of this,” he says. (The organization did not return a call for comment.) Recently, the Angels made headlines again: After the “God Hates Fags” group threatened a public protest, the L.A. Angels promised to guard the funeral of Elizabeth Taylor. —Isaiah Thompson

BUCKAGE ³ WHEN CITY COUNCILMAN Frank DiCicco

✚ PUFF PIECE This past weekend, Philly was host to the semi-annual VapeFest, a conference sponsored by the National Vapers Club, a “consumerbased, volunteer organization” dedicated to educating the public about electronic cigarettes, or “e-cigarettes,” which simulate the effect of smoking by producing an inhaled mist using liquids that may or may not contain nicotine.Attendees, or

“vapers,” came from throughout the country to network, meet fellow vapers and, of course, smoke lots of e-cigarettes: The lobby of the Embassy Suites where the event was held reeked of a sweet, perfumelike odor. The conference, unsurprisingly, drew various e-cig vendors, whose display tables, covered in various e-cig flavored liquids, looked like mini-pharmacies. Also available: e-cigs shaped like Sherlock Holmes-style pipes. On hand to field questions, greet guests and generally infuse the scene with goodwill was club president Spike Babaian, herself only a two-year convert. Obviously, most ecigarette enthusiasts hope the new technology will allow them to quit smoking tobacco. The products are relatively new, and studies are therefore scant. But as Penn State public health professor and attendee Jonathan Foulds put it: “There’s almost nothing worse than a regular cigarette, so the bar isn’t very high.” —Tanya Hull

GAVIN DIRUSSO, GAVINDIRUSSO.TUMBLR.COM

announced a few weeks ago that he wouldn’t be running for re-election, he mentioned a few reasons — among them, that he didn’t feel up to raising the $500,000 he thought he’d need to win. And no, we haven’t misplaced our decimal point. The truth is, for all the debates, position papers, endorsements and platforms in this year’s or any other municipal elections, you still need good oldfashioned buckage to win. To some extent, the influence of that buckage has been curbed and made more visible. City laws introduced in 2005 and 2006 limit donations to $10,000 for political action committees (PACs) and just over $2,500 for individuals. City candidates are also required to disclose their contributions and expenditures to the city’s Board of Ethics, which posts those reports online. Things are better, says watchdog Committee of Seventy’s Zack Stalberg, than they were in the “wild west situation that existed before the law.” But before you let our candidates go frolicking off into that great government sunshine, have a look-see at the loopholes. They are many. The way city law works, politicians don’t have to file until they become official “candidates” — allowing Council members and other elected officials’ political committees to collect and spend money however they please in the years between elections, without having to report it to the Board of Ethics. Nor do donation limits apply, though candidates are restricted in how much of those nebulous contributions they can spend on their own or other campaigns. The upshot is that a sitting incumbent is in a much better place to collect large sums of money than a would-be politician — hence, “a guy like Nutter can build up a pretty large campaign treasury,” points out Stalberg. Note: Nutter has done exactly that. Campaign finance is also overseen by the City Commissioner’s Office, authorized to oversee reporting by the state. That office does require more regular and consistent reporting from candidate committees and PACs. But it requires paper reports and publishes none of the info online. To get it, you have to go ask for copies. Neither reporting system, meanwhile, takes care of flawed reporting cycles, determined by the state, that are often so close to elections as to render finance reports not very useful. Between now and election day, the public will barely get to see two finance reports before the primary and which won’t include last-minute donations. Not that anyone would, like, make any.

This time, Owens seems to have mellowed out.

His platform, he says, is to take on campus minority issues. “I don’t feel like a loser if I don’t win this election,” he reflected calmly. “Sometimes it’s just fun to run — you get more interactions, meet new friends.” Not that he won’t give it a shot. He’s got a lively new campaign website up (vote4ernest.org features a jubilant Owens meeting Condoleezza Rice), and he might even have some political leverage in the form of various (and somewhat baffling) campus rumors over the origins of an unusually large anonymous donation to the 2014 Class Board (a school official confirmed that such a donation had been made). But Owens intends to run a positive campaign this time around. It’s “about people not giving up,” he says. “I’m not afraid to stand up for the underdog.” (editorial@citypaper.net)

He had lost friends; he felt bullied. And just a few months into his freshman year, he had made enemies. Looking back, he admits to having acted too defensively. But “I feel like we all went overboard,” said Owens. “Freshman year, no one really knows anyone.” When his mother came across a few nasty remarks online — “She’s already worried enough about me being on my own so far away from Texas,” Owens says — he quietly vowed to never run again. Until, that is, he learned that Spencer Penn, his old foe, would be running this spring — unopposed — and classmates encouraged him to give it another try. “To me, it’s like, why not?” Owens said a few days ago, as a female acquaintance rushed past, shouting, “Ernie, I voted for you!” This time, Owens seems to have mellowed out somewhat, even grown up, you might say. And while his public persona has in many ways expanded — he was recently named “DJ of the Fortnight,” for his radio show, has started a campus TV show, and says he’s working on an “Ask

y November 2010 — five months after Brigham was sent packing — the state’s 24 clinics were finally inspected by health officials. Brigham’s “old” facilities were under “new” ownership, but they still racked up new notices of violations of state law. In December 2010, the health department sent Allentown Medical Services six pages of “deficiencies” — more than any other open abortion clinic received — which the state released to City Paper. The state’s letter to Allentown Medical Services reveals that the facility “failed to ensure that each patient was supervised constantly while recovering from surgery or anesthesia.” Several pieces of equipment “had not been inspected, certified for use and not calibrated.” Many, many records were also missing. Jen Boulanger, executive director of Allentown Women’s Center, calls the missing records “very disturbing.” She says, “There is no evidence that this office monitored patients during surgery nor afterward,” adding, “the patient’s health would be at risk if she has any difficulty breathing during the procedure.” Dittoe, who now is employed at another Pittsburgh abortion clinic, says the missing records are especially troubling given her experience working at Brigham’s clinics: “Any time there was a complication, the chart ended up missing,” she says. In a letter of response to the health department, the clinic’s “operations coordinator,” whose name was redacted, wrote that “the Department’s letter involve only record-keeping »»» continued on page 12 P H I L A D E L P H I A C I T Y PA P E R | M A R C H 3 1 - A P R I L 6 , 2 0 1 1 | C I T Y PA P E R .

osnell’s clinic had hardly been unknown among women’s health advocates who warned the state. The same advocates say they’ve long sounded alarms about Brigham — not, they say, to much avail. “Nobody understands why all these complaints came through with Gosnell and Brigham’s clinics, and [the state] couldn’t figure out a thing to do about it,” says the ACLU’s Petraitis. Sarah Dittoe, who worked as a patient advocate at Brigham’s clinic American Women’s Services–Pittsburgh in 2004, says she contacted the health department numerous times about various incidents she says she witnessed, including one in which she says a doctor refused to call an ambulance when a patient began bleeding profusely. “An hour and a half passed before he finally called 911,” she says. Dittoe says she shared all this, and more, to the state investigator. But, she claims, “He ... stopped returning my calls and following up with me.” Eli Kuti, another former employee of Brigham’s who worked as the office manager of American Women’s Services–Pittsburgh from 2000 to 2003, says she, too, contacted the health department after, she claims, discovering improperly stored medical waste. “I know

that everything has to be registered and properly disposed of,” says Kuti. Kuti says she wrote five or six letters detailing this allegation, as well as many others, to state officials. But, she claims, “There was no follow-up.” Claire Keyes, who was longtime director of Allegheny Reproductive Health Center before recently retiring, says the health department hasn’t thoroughly handled complaints from fellow abortion providers, as well: The “state either did not, or could not, respond” to the 20-plus complaints she filed on behalf of patients, she says. But then last year, in the wake of the Gosnell case, women’s advocates became hopeful that change was on the way. Then-Gov. Ed Rendell ordered inspections of all the state’s abortion clinics, and Dr. Evi Avila, the Department of Health’s acting secretary, later said at a public hearing in early 2011, “The department has instituted measures to ensure that such a public health breakdown does not occur again in our commonwealth,” adding that new procedures are in place “to investigate all complaints promptly” and that “complaints will be taken from any source, even anonymously.” Months prior to this, in July 2010, the health department had ordered that Brigham could not have a “controlling ownership” or “equity interest” in any abortion clinic in Pennsylvania, citing the fact that he routinely employed unlicensed medical personnel. The order also prohibited Brigham from “directly, or indirectly” registering any abortion facility in the state. (Brigham has appealed this ruling.) Abortion-rights advocates throughout the state say they were relieved, thinking the order would finally stop Brigham’s operations. It would not.

unlicensed nurse. In 2010, New Jersey’s medical board found that he began late-term abortions on women in that state and then drove them to Maryland to complete the procedures, in an attempt to skirt state law. One woman allegedly suffered life-threatening injuries as a result. They found no medical records for her. At Brigham’s Maryland clinic, police say they found 35 late-term fetuses in his freezer — but records for only two. Brigham declined comment for this article. Abortion opponents have followed the activities and whereabouts of Brigham for years; he became a kind of anti-poster boy for their cause, and they’ve protested outside his clinics since the mid-’90s. Choice advocates, on the other hand, see Brigham — and Gosnell — as rare exceptions who prove how little state oversight exists when it comes to abortion providers. “The state knew about Gosnell. They know about Brigham,” says Vicki Saporta, president of the National Abortion Federation. “There were many complaints about both of these providers, yet they were allowed to remain open.” In fact, these choice advocates have wanted Brigham shut down as badly as the anti-abortion activists do.

issues. … There is no evidence that any of the issues referred to by the Department resulted in any patient harm.” meanwhile, cp has found proof that the “new” management isn’t new at all. according to the Department of health’s July 2010 order, Brigham is not supposed to have a “controlling ownership” or “equity interest” in any abortion clinic in the state. But Brigham’s present role in two clinics here is unclear. The maryland State Board of physicians says that Brigham owns american Women’s Services, which operates more than a dozen abortion clinics throughout the region and is allegedly headquartered in Voorhees, N.J. The company’s two clinics in pennsylvania go by the names allentown medical Services and american Women’s Services–pittsburgh. But Brigham’s attorney, Julia Gabis, says he owns neither. and the Department of State apparently agrees. records show that in early 2010, he transferred ownership of the two clinics to rose health Services co., owned by Judith Fitch. (Fitch also declined comment, through Gabis.) in February, the Inquirer reported that Fitch is Brigham’s mother. What’s more, cp has found that Brigham still holds a managerial role at those two clinics. When cp first asked two of Brigham’s lawyers, Gabis and Joseph Gorrell, if he’s had a role at either of the two pennsylvania clinics following the ownership transfer, they declined comment. Then, several sources told cp that, to their surprise, they saw Brigham last week at a mandatory health department meeting for abortion providers. allentown Women’s center’s Boulanger says that at the meeting, “Brigham introduced himself to our medical director as the allentown office’s cEO.” holli Senior, a Department of health spokeswoman, described the meeting’s attendants as the “heads of their facility” but wouldn’t release names. asked again about Brigham’s role, attorney Gabis said, “Dr. Brigham … does provide occasional managerial oversight. he has no ownership interest in or board position with rose health Services.”

righam has made similar arguments before. in October 2010, he stood before the New Jersey Board of medical Examiners over allegedly beginning late-term abortions in that state and then driving women to Elkton, md., to complete them. according to the Inquirer, Brigham argued that he didn’t need a maryland license because he was simply “engaging in consultation” at the Elkton clinic. But he admitted, “i did the care.” according to state documents obtained by City Paper, other management within allentown medical Services remains unchanged: Donna Smith is the district manager; according to newspaper reports, she was its director

as far back as 1999. City Paper asked the health department why Brigham is allowed to remain a manager at the two pennsylvania clinics despite the July 2010 order, as well as why his mother is permitted to be the “owner.” Spokeswoman Senior said that because Brigham appealed the order, “it has not yet been imposed.” She declined to say if the health department is not enforcing the order by choice, or to comply with state law or a judge’s ruling. That Brigham has been allowed to play an apparently “managerial” role was news to everyone in the pro-choice community with whom City Paper spoke. “if a judge had ordered [not to impose the order], then why not tell [the media]? … The Department of health should be doing everything in its power to protect the lives and health of women in pennsylvania,” says the aclU’s petraitis. “The part that i don’t understand ... is that the state really did have the opportunity to shut his clinics down.” meanwhile, as Brigham’s fate here remains in legal limbo, women continue to have abortions at allentown medical Services and american Women’s Services–pittsburgh. Though Brigham’s name has been all over the news for years, it’s still easy for women to not know of his involvement in american Women’s Services: The company’s website doesn’t list his name. it also has the lucrative number 1-888-aBOrTiON. Says Saporta, of the National abortion Federation, “he shouldn’t be allowed to own or operate abortion clinics in any state in this country.”

i

n the grand jury’s 2011 report on Gosnell, investigators lay a great deal of blame on the Department of health’s lack of inspections. in the mid-’90s, it says, under pro-choice Gov. Tom ridge’s administration, the department “abruptly decided, for political reasons, to stop inspecting abortion clinics at all.” This provided an ostensibly easy way for the health department to solve the problem: Start inspecting clinics again, which it promptly did last year. But women’s health advocates argue that Brigham’s case proves that the health department’s problems run deeper than just the need to do inspections. Keyes, the former director of the allegheny reproductive health center, says the health department’s persistent problems are somewhat a result of it losing funding years ago. When this happened, she says, the department “shrugged its shoulders and moved on” from abortion clinics, partly because of society’s stigma toward the procedure. “i don’t think it was malevolent,” she says. “it was just easier to ignore.” ironically, women’s rights advocates say this same stigma is what continues to drive women to Brigham’s clinics: “people think they don’t have many choices. abortion is still a dirty word,” says Kuti. “They think ... ‘i deserve to go somewhere shitty.’” The Department of health, meanwhile, “is taking the necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of women seeking these services in the commonwealth,” says spokeswoman Senior, noting that it has recently “adopted new procedures” to do so. Some of these procedures are good news to abortion rights advocates — others are not. But a case like Brigham’s, they argue, should be clear-cut: “if women’s lives are at risk,” asks petraitis, “why is it taking so long?” (holly.otterbein@citypaper.net)

³ BUNIM-MURRAY PRODUCTIONS will

hold a casting call for the 26th season of The Real World on April 2 at Fado Irish Pub. There’s no word yet from MTV on where the house will be (season 25 is in Las Vegas). Philly, I beg of you, don’t ask to be part of another Real World season. They filmed here through spring and summer of ’04 and all we got for our troubles was sadness. Old City became a den of stone wash and striped shirts, a curse from which the area has never recovered. Just don’t. ³ Not everything in the Piazza has high drama like Bart Blatstein locking Shola Olunloyo out of Speck.Take Gunners Run. The pub with the DIY Bloody Mary bar from chef Shawn Sollberger and the team of Bryan Dilworth (Bonfire Booking) and Jason Goldberg (Olde City Tattoo) opened with no muss or fuss over the weekend. Next up for Dilworth? Pushing Milkboy Coffee & Cocktails to finally get their 11th-and-Chestnut digs ready by mid-spring. ³ This week, two favored Philadelphians release live EPs. There’s rasta multi-instrumentalist Blayer Pointdujour’s Port-Au-Prince, featuring his new live band. Then folksy Garrett Dutton, one of the big hits of SXSW, drops G. Love — iTunes Live at SXSW, which he recorded during his gig at St. David’s Sanctuary in Austin. ³ I’ve heard grumbling about this for some time: Jim and Kristina Burke’s much-heralded Bella Vista restaubar, James,is moving after their lease ends in June. No word yet as to where or exactly when. I hear they’re looking for a neighborhood with more diners. (Eighth Street’s Bibou is always packed. Ninth is pretty crowded, too.) Don’t go, James.Concerned citizens should do what the neighbors around Bitar’s at 10th and Federal are doing — writing notes to the owner asking him to stay. Employees say it’s possible the owner could be swayed to stay instead of moving to a new location around Broad and South. ³ Broken Prayers’ show at Tritone gets interesting as they bring in two guest acts: The Thirteen will debut its new members (including Jukebox Zeros’ Peter Santa Maria) and booking agent Joe Lekkas’ The Knife Show will take a crack at the April 2 event. ³ Talula’s Garden — Aimee Olexy’s green-centric restaurant at Stephen Starr’s ex-Washington Square location — is not opening this Friday at 6:33 p.m. as some Facebook reports had said.

FULL HAUS: Chernobyl Collective Arts — which includes members of bands like Da Comrade! and On the Water — is celebrating a new zine and compilation CD on Saturday. NEAL SANTOS

[ rock/pop/art ]

COMRADES IN ARMS West Philly’s Chernobyl Collective is prepared to make a statement. By A.D. Amorosi

D

a Comrade! has all the earmarks of a classic West Philadelphia ensemble. Their Dadaist lyrics dovetail nicely into their honking Captain Beefheart-like art-punk. (One of its singer/songwriters, Fletcher VanVliet, has even adopted the Captain’s real last name.) They have a weirdly folksy and loud offshoot, On the Water, whose demos were recorded by a member of legendary area mainstays Radio Eris and an upcoming full-length produced by Ugh God. Plus Da Comrade! is part of a diverse menagerie of crusty aesthetes who, until recently, had their own house. They have uniquely bushy facial hair. The only thing more West Philly than Da Comrade! is the 36 trolley. And the same must be said for Chernobyl Collective Arts (CCA) — a tight group of creative types with Da Comrade! at the forefront — which is putting its mouth where its (limited) money is this month. CCA is releasing a handsome zine and a compilation CD called Long Live Chernobyl. Noisy West Philly neighbors Mose Giganticus and TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb do the sonic side. Abstract painter/collagist Steph Cisso, photographer Stephanie Ricci, sculptor George Cosgrove and others supply the weird visual end. “This collective was raised from the ashes of our now-defunct venue house,” says VanVliet, referring to Chernobyl Haus (near 45th and Locust), which hosted house parties and shows between ’08 and

’09. The place also acted as an arts and music studio for its members and like-minded visionaries visiting from out of state. “We all agreed that even though that era had passed, we would still work together and mutually support our seemingly endless stream of projects. We’ve been sitting on the idea for some time, so this zine/compilation release show is our big way of bringing ourselves onto the radar.” If their own music doesn’t do it first. There’s just as much shouting and punchy strumming as there are tender, softer moments to the sea shanty folk of On the Water, which is sometimes just VanVliet and Stephen Landis, the violinist for Psalters who used to crash the couch at Chernobyl Haus. More often, OTW swells to nine members. Meanwhile, Da Comrade!’s debut fulllength, Chariot, is radically heavier than its previous wifty recordings (the sprawling War from Your Living Room EP, the haughty home-recorded CD Da!Da!). Panicky songs like “Who Is Jawn Galt?” and a set of eerily screeching strings add to Da Comrade!’s usual messy drama — what VanVliet calls the band’s Dadaist ethos. Still, there’s something gently refined about the proceedings even when its guitars skronk and its drums tumble. “Everything we’re lining up do to this year, including some truly epic theatrical videos, aims for high art,” says VanVliet.

[ martyrs getting their wish ] ³ rock/pop

I Know What You Want is only six tracks long, but nothing is petite about the selfreleased solo debut by Amy Klein (also known as Amy Andronicus, guitarist and violinist in Titus Andronicus, and one-half of noise-rockers Hilly Eye). Contrasting the softer moments are Klein’s unrelenting guitar shredding and some surprisingly harsh tambourine, reminding listeners that beneath the polished voice lies a Jersey punk.

—John Vettese

³ rock/acoustic John Darnielle’s good at pretty and gentle. At midtempo acoustic rock he’s no slouch, either. But you gotta love those nigh-bombastic corkers that pummel the beauty into you. On The Mountain Goats’ new All Eternals Deck (Merge), the track that best summons sweat and tears is “Estate Sale Sign.” The drums and guitar sprint like cheetahs while that deal-breaker voice lays out a dozen little dramas about prey falling, altars cracking, love rotting, memories getting sold for nothing, martyrs getting their wish. Wow. —Patrick Rapa

³ rock/bubblegum Indie bands have been looking to unironically revive the lost technology of ’60s Dubble Bubble girl groups for years (All Girl Summer Fun Band, The No-No’s, etc.), but Oakland’s Hunx and His Punx distinguishes itself on Too Young To Be in Love (Hardly Art) with queer themes and jangly garage guitars to underpin the pining sweetness. Seth Bogart (of Gravy Train!!!!) and his chorus of dynamite female backers go all in on old-school set pieces like “Lovers Lane” and “Keep Away from Johnny.” —Patrick Rapa

³ VINCENT MICHAEL GALLERY In 2001, when Chris RWK founded the street art collective and website Robots Will Kill, it was for artists who had nowhere else to turn. As he mused on a five-year anniversary post, “I remember going into a gallery and being laughed at and told to come back when I got ‘a little bit older.’” Ten years later — and further from the womb — the sevenmember group is, interestingly, showing at a gallery. Their exhibited canvas and paper works in “Never Say Die” are much like the murals they plaster on New York City walls, with everyone sticking to their respective strengths: RWK to pop-culture figures (his Pandaring to the Crowd is pictured above), ECB to unnerving, lovely environments, Veng to his old Dutch-master style. But there’s value in seeing each artist on his own, not collaborating for once. Plus, it’s fun moving graffiti indoors: “People walk by this stuff every day and don’t think about it,” says Chris RWK. “Now they have to look.” Opening reception Fri., April 1, 7-10 p.m., free, through April 30, Piazza at Schmidts, 1050 N. Hancock St., Suite 63, 215-399-1580, vincentmichael.com. ³ 144 N. SECOND ST. Reading the words “earthquake,” “tsunami” and “nuclear crisis” can make a person feel paralyzed in the face of Japan’s recent tragedy. But there are ways to help: Three Rutgers students and professor Sean Duffy are holding the First Friday fundraiser “Raise Up Japan,” slinging donated artworks you can buy in a donated gallery space, with 100 percent of donations going to the Japanese Red Cross. Artists include everyone from big-shot painter Paul Lorenz to up-and-comers from the Hopkinson Elementary School to NOSE GO — who, coincidentally, Chris RWK says is one of Philly’s best street artists.

ing, and no one’s chronicled the mind’s mechanisms and its occasionally bewildering short-circuits like Dr. Oliver Sacks. The renowned neurologist has been fairly ill-served onscreen, however, where his compelling descriptions of mental misfirings are invariably transformed into overwrought tearjerkers. Based on Sacks’ case study “The Last Hippie,” The Music Never Stopped uses the lead character’s amnesia as a launchingoff point for father-son reconciliation. It manages to be somewhat moving, however, merely by allowing its moderate ambitions to complement its simple charms. The film opens in 1986, when Gabriel Sawyer (Lou Taylor Pucci) turns up, heavily bearded, disheveled and disoriented, in a hospital bed. Though heavily fictionalized, he shares with his model in Sacks’ story a brain tumor that has destroyed his ability to form new memories, essentially freezing his brain in 1970. A therapist (Julia Ormond) suggests triggering memories through music, eventually discovering that ’60s rock engages her patient best. This doesn’t sit well with his father (J.K. Simmons), who associates that music with his son’s dissolution and the breakdown of their happy family. Through a series of flashbacks, we see an idyllic ’50s nuclear family deteriorate into a Vietnam-era clash of psych-rocking flag-burner versus conservative hardhead. The TV-movie feel of these scenes is only exacerbated by a cast of hippies that might not pass convincingly in a Freedom Rock ad. Over time, of course, dad comes around, as Simmons delves into his son’s record collection and comes to understand the poetry of classic rock. First-time director Jim Kohlberg is content to transfer script to screen in as unassuming a fashion as possible, but it’s mainly Simmons, stepping out of his usual supporting roles into a curmudgeonly but affecting lead, that brings emotional depth to the proceedings. —Shaun Brady

Amnesia as a launchingoff point.

I’M NOT THERE: J.K. Simmons steps out of his supporting-actor comfort zone to play the frustrated father of an amnesiac in The Music Never Stopped.

BECKI FULLER

I mean, really, you don’t want to hear musicians making the same record over and over again, do ya? Neither do The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Their new Belong (Slumberland) is polished and bright, produced up to lend it an effervescence and accessibility absent in the oh-sofashionable reverb bath of their self-titled debut. Tracks like “Heart in Your Heartbreak” and “The Body” twinkle and pop, conjuring all manner of Lightning Seeds and New Order reminiscences. Dig in.

In â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Usefulness of Useful Things,â&#x20AC;? made up of photographs, sculpture, portraits and found objects, curator Jonathan Berger pulls inspiration from the late-blooming fine artist Janette Laverrière. In her 80s, after decades as a successful interior designer, Laverrière began creating abstract mirrors that portrayed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;unjustnessâ&#x20AC;? of justice, anarchist revolutionaries and other political themes. She joyfully called them â&#x20AC;&#x153;useless.â&#x20AC;? Her La Commune is displayed, along with works by Michael Auder, Guy de Cointet, Stefanie Victor and Eugene Von Bruenchenhein. The most haunting works are photographs depicting de Cointetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performances, in which actors spoke in an extensive, wholly made-up language. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re perhaps the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most useless works, too: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dormant and dead until you have the missing link,â&#x20AC;? says Berger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a brilliance and beauty in that.â&#x20AC;?

Certified Copy is all about feeling, not understanding. By Sam Adams

[ A ] CERTIFIED COPY | Directed and written by Abbas Kiarostami, an MK2 Diffusion release, opens Friday at Ritz Five

I

n Tuscany (so far so good), a man and a woman meet (perhaps) and spend a day forging (?) an increasingly contentious relationship. That stuttering synopsis is about as close as one can get to a definitive account of Abbas Kiarostami’s elusive, engrossing Certified Copy, the Iranian master’s first feature shot outside his native country, and his first narrative in nearly a decade. Some things are certain. William Shimell plays a British cultural critic who’s come to Italy to give a lecture based on his book extolling the value of artistic forgeries. After his talk, he meets a woman (Juliette Binoche) who offers to help him pass the time before his evening train. They travel to a village where she shows him a copied painting whose beauty the locals prize as highly as they would the original’s. They sip coffee, stroll through a piazza, visit a church where a newly married couple are taking wedding snaps. And somewhere along the way, their conversation begins to drift. Binoche (her character is unnamed) begins as an awestruck fan, asking Shimell to autograph a half-dozen copies of his book, but as they discuss his ideas, their conversation takes odd, inexplicable turns. Binoche turns suddenly hostile, as if her companion unknowingly touched on some invisible wound. The uncomfortable moments pass, but they accumulate, comprising a hidden history

³ LUCK BE A LADY The big news about Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre’s Hamlet is also what we’re supposed to ignore: A woman plays the title role. Director Carmen Khan hopes Mary Tuomanen’s androgynous Hamlet will explore the role’s universality — “neither man nor woman, but human” — but gender largely defines us and isn’t easily avoided. Given her petite size and youthfulness, Tuomanen’s Hamlet emerges as a tempestuous teen, emotionally vulnerable and expressive in his grief for his murdered father and his disdain for the uncle who stole both the crown and Hamlet’s mother. Those familiar with the play will find her interpretation smart, articulate and driven; those seeing Hamlet for the first time might not be able to shake the image of Doogie Howser, Prince of Denmark, especially when he squares off with older, beefier Laertes (Jason Greenfield). The production around Tuomanen moves briskly and clearly, driven by Ames Adamson’s complicated Claudius and Victoria Rose Bonito’s Ophelia, seemingly the only character cast specifically for Tuomanen, equally teenaged and emotionally fragile. This Hamlet seems primed for a complicated relationship with mother Gertrude (Amanda Grove), but the queen is rather passive, a pants-suited cipher. Johnny Smith and Dan Higbee are suitably befuddled as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, but if these guys were this Hamlet’s classmates, they were clearly held back a grade or two. Overall, performances live up to Hamlet’s advice about acting, the famous “speak the speech, I pray you, trippingly on the

that keeps erupting to the surface. But what that history is, or may be, is a question that several viewings of Certified Copy have yet to answer. Theories abound, some based in character and some in the movie’s themes, as well as Kiarostami’s long-standing fascination with the way film shapes and manipulates our understanding of human relationships. But answering the questions the movie poses — or, to an extent, defining what those questions are — is not the point, or even a possibility. Kiarostami wants us to wrestle with the nature of their relationship, but not to come to a definitive endpoint, any more than our own interactions can be reduced to a set of fixed points. The scene in which nagging doubts blossom into full-fledged queries takes place when the couple stops for coffee, and he steps outside to take a call. The café’s owner, a well-worn grandmotherly type, asks Binoche why her husband only speaks to her in English, and Binoche plays along, if playing is what it is. Is Binoche venting frustration with the absent father of her teenage son (Adrian Moore), who appears in several early scenes? Or, unlikely as it might seem, is it possible that she and Shimell are a married couple, now so estranged they act as if they’ve never met? From scene to scene, and even within them, the possibilities are in constant flux. Between Shimell’s emotional aridity and intellectual hauteur and Binoche’s mercurial volatility, their conversations buck and jerk like beached fish; just when you think you’ve laid hold, they wriggle away again. Throughout his long career,

tongue,” which is unforgivably cut. David Gordon’s elegant set design — which will also accommodate As You Like It (on stage April 7-May 15), with the same actors, in repertory — has a suitably cold, concrete-castle look, and a cleverly used little pool stage center. Mike Consenza’s fight choreography makes Hamlet a believable match for Laertes in the climactic combat. Fencing doesn’t have weight classes like boxing and, as Tuomanen proves, neither does acting. Through May 14, $25-$35, Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre, 2111 Sansom St., 215-496-8001, phillyshakespeare.org.

Hamlet

—Mark Cofta

³ TALK THERAPY Anna Deveare Smith’s latest “On the Road” play, based on interviews transformed into monologues performed by Smith, stops at Philadelphia Theatre Co. courtesy of Washington, D.C.’s Arena Stage. The series’ best-known titles are Twilight: Los Angeles and Fires in the Mirror, which explored race riots in L.A. and Brooklyn, respectively; Let Me Down Easy, about health and mortality, isn’t as explosive, but proves equally engrossing. Smith moves seamlessly through 20 personalities — white, black, old, young, male, female — with few props and minimal costumes augmenting her basic black slacks, white shirt and bare feet. Director Leonard Foglia allows the props to accumulate on Ricardo Hernandez’s elegantly simple set, gradually making

Kiarostami has almost entirely eschewed the services of professional actors, but Binoche’s virtuosic turn validates his change in method. Like Laura Dern in David Lynch’s Inland Empire, she allows you to feel scenes even when you can’t understand them. Shimell, an operatic baritone with no previous screen experience, is less supple, but his rigidity is perfectly tailored to the character’s obduracy (or, more likely, the inverse). In the years since Ten, Kiarostami seemed to be moving away from the theater and into the gallery, but Certified Copy integrates the theoretical richness of Five and Shirin with the dramatic wealth of Taste of Cherry and The Wind Will Carry Us. It’s a difficult film to explain, but not to watch, a dizzying balancing act whose heights are apparent only in retrospect. Looking back, you may be astonished at how far you’ve been taken, as well as the staggering impact of its final moments. But in many ways, the film’s end is only the beginning; Certified Copy sets you on a journey, but its length and destination are yours to decide. (s_adams@citypaper.net)

a sterile space feel lived-in, much like Smith’s performance. His staging borders on gimmicky, however, with two pieces spoken directly to cameras and projected above the stage. Our main focus is the people Smith affectionately portrays: First are artists and athletes who push their bodies to extremes, like choreographer Elizabeth Streb, cyclist Lance Armstrong, rodeo rider Brent Williams and boxer Michael Bentt; then comes a discussion of health care, from supermodel Lauren Hutton to a doctor in New Orleans who recognizes that there are some people our system simply ignores. Without referring to the issue’s divisive politics, Smith articulates a need for reform. The last several, including former Texas Gov. Ann Richards, cancer doctor Eduardo Bruera and Smith’s Aunt Lorraine, deal candidly with end-of-life issues, what Harvard’s Rev. Peter Gomes termed “conducting” terminal patients to an end “as graceful and as easy as possible.” The phrase also seems like Smith’s credo for this beautifully produced, moving and intimate performance. Through April 10, $46-$59, Philadelphia Theatre Co. at Suzanne Roberts Theatre, 480 S. Broad St., 215-9850420, philadelphiatheatrecompany.org. —Mark Cofta

INSIDIOUS|BWith the memory clouded by a series of increasingly over-plotted, cruelly judgmental sequels, it’s easy to forget what a crudely effective, jolting little thriller James Wan’s original Saw really was. The recollection of those short, sharp shocks may come flooding back for viewers of Insidious, which is a haunted house flick as intricately designed as one of Jigsaw’s devices for precision nastiness. What it doesn’t share with Wan’s franchise-spawning debut is novelty; he may have built a better scare-delivering mousetrap, but it’s still just a piece of cheese and a trigger. For its first half, though, Insidious delivers those scares like clockwork (this is definitely one to see with a receptive audience). Immediately after Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne move into a new house with their three young children, strange occurrences begin — books dumped off shelves, packing boxes mysteriously relocated to the attic — culminating in their son slipping into a sudden coma. While lifting ideas from plenty of his predecessors (Poltergeist and The Amityville Horror being the most obvious), Wan at least comes up with an answer for the question of why they

It’s impossible not to be charmed by the subject of Richard Press’ documentary, an octogenarian photographer of “street style” who roams the streets of Manhattan with one hand on his bike’s handlebars and the other attached to his camera. A figure of apparently bottomless dedication and good will, Bill Cunningham is hardly a clotheshorse himself — he wears a $20 jacket first spotted on a Parisian street sweeper, draping himself in a duct-taped poncho when it rains — but his unvarying garb gives him the feel of an icon, or a lovable cartoon. Press traces Cunningham’s influence backward, from his weekly “On the Street” for The New York Times through his innovative layouts for the pre-Condé Nast Details to his break with Women’s Wear Daily, which he quit in a fury after a piece on real women wearing runway styles was rewritten to mock them. Utterly devoid of fashion-world cattiness, Cunningham is an unabashed enthusiast with an acute eye for how clothes are worn in the real world, as interested in colorful passers-by as what Anna Wintour’s wearing to work today. Despite a few brief biographical passages and a human-interest detour on Cunningham’s eviction from the artists’ studios above Carnegie Hall, Press fails to pierce his subject’s genial shell. It’s an engaging portrait, but a thoroughly superficial one, perhaps fittingly given that its subject’s life has been devoted to exteriors. (NB: Although the documentary has been in the works for years, it can’t be a coincidence that a portrait of a dedicated old-school photojournalist who puts integrity before financial gain hits theaters the same week the Times’ paywall goes up, especially since the paper holds the film’s copyright.) —Sam Adams (Ritz at the Bourse)

don’t just leave the house. He also provides an undercurrent of unease about aging and mortality through the parents’ subtle vanity. Once psychic Lin Shaye and her duo of comic-relief Ghost Hunters (including screenwriter Leigh Whannell) arrive, however, the film gets bogged down in too much explaining. Longwinded motivations are provided for the apparitions, whose increased visibility does them no favors, given that they and their realm look to be derived from early-’90s music videos. The last half-hour only maintains its fright factor for anyone who had nightmares after watching “Black Hole Sun.” —Shaun Brady (UA 69th St., UA Grant, UA Riverview)

MIRAL|C+ No one expects — or wants — director Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) to put his material before himself. But in adapting Miral, a semi-autobiographical novel by Palestinian journalist Rula Jebreal, he often seems to be transcribing rather than directing, plodding doggedly through the story’s half-century history lesson. Freida Pinto gets by on impetuousness and sullen charm, embodying a headstrong student at a Palestinian orphanage run by the stately Hind Hosseini (Hiam Abbass). (If there’s an irony in the lead role in a drama about Arab identity being played by an Indian actress, it’s quelled by Pinto’s startling resemblance to Jebreal.) Miral has been chided for its one-sidedness, but the perspective it most lacks isn’t political. Schnabel seems cowed by his subject matter, and it doesn’t help that Jebreal adapted her own book. There’s no one to impose a shape on the film, to turn it from a well-meaning but vague coming-of-age story into one that fully engages the region’s complexities. People will agree or disagree with it, sometimes violently, but it’s unlikely any of them will be stirred to rethink their views. —S.A. (Ritz at the Bourse)

THE MUSIC NEVER STOPPED|C+ Read Shaun Brady’s review on p. 15. (Ritz at the Bourse)

SOURCE CODE|C+ With only his second film, Duncan Jones runs the risk of becoming tethered to gimmick filmmaking a la M. Night Shyamalan; where the latter became mired in twist endings, Jones shows a penchant for mind-twisting sci-fi thrillers in which characters only gradually come to understand their bizarre situations. He follows the claustrophobic Moon with the

much grander action of Source Code, but Jake Gyllenhaal’s ex-chopper pilot shares the disorientation of Sam Rockwell’s isolated astronaut. Though scripted this time by Ben Ripley rather than the director, Source Code also repeats its predecessor’s unfortunate flaw of letting its audience get ahead of its characters. Gyllenhaal awakens on a commuter train into Chicago with someone else’s reflection and, apparently, life. When the train suddenly explodes several minutes later, he is jolted into another disarming reality. Without revealing too much, it turns out he’s being sent into the memory of a

WIN WIN|BCindy (Melanie Lynskey) doesn’t win in Tom McCarthy’s third film. She’s relegated to playing the villain — the drug-addled, tight-jeanswearing daughter who wants her father Leo’s (Burt Young) money so badly that she’s essentially willing to give up her teenage son, Kyle. By that time, Kyle (Alex Shaffer) has stumbled into a better situation anyway, living with his new wrestling

acter), which make him seem a little too much like Cindy — though he can’t admit what he’s done even to Jackie. Mike’s moral education is unsurprising, the sort of neat, midlife re-evaluation that came to Richard Jenkins in McCarthy’s excruciating The Visitor. While this movie celebrates the baby steps Mike finds possible, it doesn’t allow Cindy any subtlety. She’s cruel and selfish and ugly. And Lynskey — so brilliant in Heavenly Creatures, so generous in Sweet Home Alabama and so utterly perfect in her two minutes of Inside Man — deserves better. —Cindy Fuchs (Rave, Ritz Five)

JANE EYRE|B Austere and downcast, this Jane Eyre keeps us starkly distant from the heroine’s inner workings. Jane is faced with a constant sense of mortality and separation, an unshakable wintry cast that colors all. Mia Wasikowska would seem an odd choice for the famously “plain and obscure” Jane, but with a mousy brown bun and perpetually knitted brow, she captures the plainness of the character’s self-image, coming alive when challenged in a way that utterly justifies Mr. Rochester’s attraction. In the unforgiving light, the tragic lovers allow themselves only brief grasps at happiness, doled out in slow measures, as if neither is willing to admit that such a drastic change is even possible, let alone desirable. —S.B.

The science behind this is confused at best, though its inconsistencies are somewhat overcome by exposition delivered by Jeffrey Wright’s deliriously over-thetop mad scientist. He doesn’t have a hunchback and an eye patch, but his performance basically implies them. The shortcomings become more glaring as the plot unravels; in the end, we’re left with the message that the

✚ CONTINUING BATTLE: LOS ANGELES|B Jonathan Liebesman’s aboveboard space-invasion movie tells the oldest story in the extraterrestrial colonization book — the damn aliens want our natural resources, and us humans are gonna scrap till the end! Battle: L.A. does an admirable job humanizing the fictional struggle — it’s a bit of a military fetish piece, yes, but an entertaining and well-paced one. It’s a Point A to Point B movie, but the getting there is a pure sci-fi

Though it’s based on the life of 1970s mobster Danny Greene, Jonathan Hensleigh’s Kill the Irishman comes off as little more than a block quote-heavy term paper on American gangster cinema. The most compelling facet of Greene’s story — how he exploited interviews with local TV stations to publicly humiliate the Cleveland mob on a national level — is sadly underplayed here, with Hensleigh choosing to focus his energies on a you-name-it list of played-out gangster tropes (cue life advice/meaningful crucifix necklace gift from wizened Irish-lady neighbor).

✚ BAT BOY Sadly, Internet surfing has rendered the guilty pleasure of

reading tabloids in grocery store lines obsolete. Back in 1992, we could furtively peruse stories like the World Wide News’ “Bat Boy” — without, of course, actually buying it. Five years later, Bat Boy: The Musical saved us from shame with its horror-comedy spoof based on the WWN’s discovery of a half-human, half-vampire bat boy in a West Virginia cave. Of this wonderfully loony idea, now brought to life at Villanova Theatre, The New Yorker’s John Lahr said it best: “The only play in the history of the theater whose hero ends Act 1 with a rabbit in his mouth, and who moves on in Act 2 to an entire cow’s head.”

noise he conjures on a regular basis: trombonist Dan Blacksberg in the duo Archer Spade, his triomates in Many Arms, and the like-minded genremashers of Make A Rising and Electric Simcha. But just because he goes it alone on his new CD, Black Figure of a Bird, doesn’t make him any less dangerous. On his solo debut’s halfdozen tracks, Millevoi wrestles a 12-string electric into doing things it clearly doesn’t want to do, creating harsh textures, blistering runs, odd-angled lines and punishing eruptions. The occasional moments of breath and clarity seem a merciful respite for the instrument.

South African rocker Johnny Clegg rose to prominence in the 1970s and ’80s as the leader of Juluka and Savuka, two racially mixed bands in a time and place where that was nearly unthinkable.

But as South Africa changed, so did the demand for Clegg’s work.

our physical being can shoot off in unexpected directions — yet if we delve deeper, we discover things are not quite so random. Our emotional history, surreptitiously tucked into our subconscious, takes control and sweeps us into a “surrealist matrix.” Pretty cool, huh?

created his own 1950s fashion house around tautly tailored women’s wear. Six decades later, he remains a huge influence on the style world. As part of the PMA’s spring exhibit “Roberto Capucci: Art into Fashion,” Friday’s Art After 5 features a runway showdown among local fashion students, judged by experts like Jay McCarroll, Marla Green DiDio and many more. If the saying’s true that “everything old is new again,” then haute couture is in luck.

PLEASE FELIZ ME In Fort Washington, two Garces vets have found their happy place. By Adam Erace CANTINA FELIZ | 424 S. Bethlehem Pike, Fort Washington, 215-646-

omewhere, Jose Garces is smiling. His empire is such now that it’s a major incubator of local culinary talent. His kids are growing up, moving out, moving on. Then again, maybe he’s not smilMore on: ing — losing Tim Spinner, the former Distrito chef who just opened Cantina Feliz in Fort Washington, had to smart — but he’s probably got a little proud-papa twinkle in his eye. “Jose understood I had this drive and entrepreneurial spirit,” says Spinner, who’d been with Garces since the El Vez days. “Ultimately, it was all guts, no glory.” Now, Spinner has both, and he and partner Brian Sirhal (Distrito’s former beverage manager) have traded one 100-hour work week for another. “But now, we’re putting it into our own business.” Spinner sounds happy. No wonder he and Sirhal, friends since attending West Windsor-Plainsboro High outside Princeton, named this place of their own Cantina Feliz. It’s in the old Alison Two space, which sits at the intersection

of GPS and Required, and from the outside, looks like a funeral parlor. Fortunately, this somber stucco manse hides plenty of life. Spinner and Sirhal stripped the restaurant of its blue velour jumpsuit, broke out a wall, shuffled the service stations and brightened up the space with help from Elisabeth Knapp, the designer who worked on Zahav and Percy Street Barbecue. On a Friday, conversation ricocheted like racquetballs off the hot-pink walls and coffered topaz ceiling. All 27 stools appeared occupied in the bar, where five thirst-slaking types of margarita assuaged NCAA upsets. Even South Philly artist Alison Dilworth’s Dia de los Muertos skeletons were having fun, making mischief on a vibrant mural that runs 13 feet along Feliz’s foyer. Creative, quirky ceviches echoed this verve.

Petals of hiramasa and kiwi starred in another, greened with jalapeño, chives, lime sorbet and a two-ways-slick Galia-melon vinaigrette. Spinner says the latter ceviche is a best-seller, but I’d have a helluva time selecting a favorite. Both bewitched, not to mention resonated with a welcome spice that refused to back down. But would I drive to Montgomery County to eat them again? That’s the real question for city dwellers. I’d hesitate, but only because my anger-management counselor says it’s not good for me to be around suburban drivers. In fact, on the ride home, a hubcap from a car in front of me shot off and went >>> continued on page 32

— and its statue of Cervantes’ Don Quixote — is a crossroads in more ways than one. Positioned close to the former industrial centers of the near Northeast, it’s a nexus of change. International arts collective Futurefarmers has channeled the spirit of the site to produce “Soil Kitchen,” a temporary public art installation commissioned by the city’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy. Inspired by the story of Quixote tilting at windmills, the project will transform a vacant building into a soil-testing laboratory and soup kitchen boasting a 30-foot working windmill. “Soil Kitchen” will run in conjunction with the EPA’s 2011 National Brownfields Conference, an event tackling environmental revitalization. During the installation, anyone can bring a soil sample from their neighborhood and have it tested for free while enjoying vegan and vegetarian soups from Cosmic Catering. The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy is using the Brownfields Conference’s arrival in Philly as an opportunity to marry two of its goals: funding more temporary public art and highlighting projects with a sustainability angle. They solicited proposals from a short list of groups. “Futurefarmers was unanimously chosen,” explains the office’s Theresa Rose. “It was the project that was the most generous. … It was also poetic, and spoke about local food and urban farming in a meaningful way.” “We started to build a bit of a narrative based around the Don Quixote sculpture,” explains Futurefarmers’ Dan Allende. “Something that basically acted as a bookend to the way Cervantes wrote about windmills. It was right before the Industrial Revolution. … I always think of them as harvesting free energy … but then it was seen as disruption. And we wanted to play with that.” During its six-day run, the space will also host lectures, workshops and meetings on everything from wind-turbine construction to composting to urban farming to remediating contaminated soil. There will also be readings from Don Quixote. “We want to come in and be a catalyst,” says Allende. “Asking the EPA, ‘What should people do if they find contaminants in their soil?’ And asking the city, ‘What is your plan for urban agriculture?’ We’re trying to set up relationships, goals and activities that basically get Philadelphia ready to have the conversation on its own.” (editorial@citypaper.net)
