Jonathan Levine Projects is committed to new and cutting edge art, exploring the terrain of the high/low and everything in between. As a youth growing up in Trenton, New Jersey during the 1980s, Jonathan LeVine recognized the appeal of countercultural aesthetics including punk flyers, comics, graffiti and tattoos. In 2001, after years of independently curating at alternative venues, he decided to open a gallery specializing in this nascent art movement. Many people called him and this risky endeavor “delusional”, however, sixteen years later, he’s now the owner of one of the most well know gallery’s in the world and has cultivated the careers of many renowned artists. Jonathan LeVine is now looking for the world’s next great artist and wants to see if YOU have what it takes. Are you delusional enough?

JUST SITUATIONS will take place across two weekends in July, 2017 in Brooklyn, New York:

Thursday-Sunday July 13th-16th
Thursday-Sunday July 20th-23rd

Justice, it is said, must not only be done, it must be seen to be done (Homi K .Bhabha)

JUST SITUATIONS hosts artists, activists, and active citizens who are working in performative ways, moving beyond the trending commercialization of art “about” politics, instead seeking modes of performance which directly construct, position, and posit political, social, and embodied forms of human being and becoming.

Those gathered to perform this convention are ideally enabled to situate and posit some space-time-frames, modes, ethical (en)compassings, arbitrations, motivations, and social (as)semblance for situations in which justice may be done, seen, and seen being done.

We are directly constructing some situations in which, in and as small diffractive social groups, “we” imagine “we” may actually survive. This convention and forum aims (with no small feeling of embarrassment, naiveté and other emotive symptoms of outsiderness) to envision performance art, civic performance, and social art practices as theoretical and actual materializations of in-context equities, reparations, respectfully agonistic relationships, post-capitalist orders and economies, socio-ethical philosophies, self-realizations, and perhaps, liberations and so-seen justices.

JUST SITUATIONS is organized like an inventor’s exhibition or science fair. By framing everything occurring during the time-space of these eight days as just situations, or situation of justices, acts and social behaviors which are often seen as casual, common, as mere entertainment or luxury product, as dysfunctional, dangerous, foolish or impossible, as parasitic, private, and/or worthless within dominant schemas for value, are given primacy, seen as scientific breakthroughs and transformative political vehicles. Traumas are worked through instead of commodified, intersectional recognition of identities is practiced rather than merely hashtagged, constructive ideation is performed as a common, daily intra-activity, natures for human being are performatively reconfigured, dreams are staged as news, our bodies are on fire, our eyes glow in the dark.

We’ve shown you ours…if you’re interested in engagement, please make a proposal (in any form) responding to (agreement, disagreement, re-phrase, dialogue, reaction, etc) one or more of the following INQUIRIES, or propose an inquiry of your own (in any form) and e-mail to us at justsituationsconvention@gmail.com by May 15th
