VIA EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE// FROM: ROBERT LONG / TO: UNCOMPROMISING TANG

ROBERT LONG: I’ve attached a rambling statement to the drive folder. I felt this was the only way to elude (through collage) to the research materials with out directly setting the subjects on a specific course. Later to present observations and hypothesis structuring the piece. 

ATTACHMENT (STATEMENT)

{Through our ideologies, we have created an unreal world an ideal reference. From the moment the phrase “The Golden Age” was coined, it began to tarnish though, fondly remembered as a glory to once again be achieved. To manage such lofty goals we set off for the snowy mountain tops. Blind from cold we reach wildly swinging in hopes of finding the touch of the familiar. Glimmers of hope break the clouds to envelop us in warmth, to prick up the goose bumps on our skin, to know that feeling we actively search for those places in the in the illumination, exceed a status of average citizen. It is our pilgrimage to seek out those above the depravities brought by changing social tides, to capture not only their likeness, but to embody their character. We’ve worked hard to separate ourselves from all emotion, sentiment, impulse, hoping to find, beyond them, a state of—how to say it?—of immobility and of permanence, a silent presence, anonymous, transcendent, which would console us for all that we lacked and for the world’s absurdity.} -Robert Long

/ TANG TAKEOVER /

Emily Squires is our first TANG TAKEOVER ARTIST! Like a sort of digital residency, each TTA is given the chance to utilize the format of Uncompromising Tang over the course of an entire month. With help from our staff, each artist may generate either a new project exclusive to the site, or reconstitute a successful past project for a different and more expansive audience. The resulting work runs parallel to our other content, in this case, publishing every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for the next four weeks.

Emily Squires, who received her MFA from Washington University in St. Louis in 2012, lives and works in Portland, OR, USA. Dedicated to exploring a myriad of themes in her work–which spans the gamut of printmaking, sculpture, appropriation, political activism, and social practice–Squires is known for engaging and generating collaborative creative communities. Aways effecting change, Squires work is celebrated for it’s optimism and conceptual rigor. Personal Service Announcement, the project we will feature on Uncompromising Tang beginning on Monday, has been highlighted by, among others, The Huffington Post and ArtWrit. We present it here and on our Twitter simultaneously, with pleasure and excitement. Stay tuned//

Personal Service Announcement

Between October 1, 2012 and January 1, 2013, members of the public could submit a message via this pageEmily Squires transferred each message onto a sign. In three separate performances, she marched the signs in front of the North gate of the White House in Washington, D.C.
