congrats and condolences, a new and original performance piece by the Los Angeles-based visual artist Barnett Cohen, is an experiential inquiry into consciousness and its relationship to the physical sense of sight.
congrats and condolences is created by Barnett Cohen in collaboration with performers Celina Bernstein, Nikki Bohm, Dan Bruinooge, Daphne Gabriel, Lea Madda, Andres Paul Ramacho, Cary Thompson. Outfits are by House of 950 and were produced by Blue Tin Production Co-Op in Chicago, the first clothing cooperative in America run operated refugee and immigrant women, run by Hoda Katebi. Curated by Samara Kaplan.
Barnett Cohen originally received formal theatrical training, with an emphasis on breath and vocal work, at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. He then embarked upon a career as a visual artist with an interest in multiple disciplines, employing a wide-range of media—sculpture, painting, video, installation, and performance–-that collectively serve as meditations on the space between thought and the self and between the self and the body. His work has been exhibited at such venues as Pieter (Los Angeles), House of the Book (Los Angeles), 356 Mission (Los Angeles), Human Resources (Los Angeles), Vox Populi (Philadelphia), City Limits (Oakland), The International Center for Photography (New York), and La Galerie SEE Studio (Paris.) In June of 2019, he will present new work at JDJ | The Ice House in Garrison, New York. He received a BA in English literature from Vassar College, an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, and has been in-residence at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and the MacDowell Colony.

About the Book:
"Waiting for Lipchitz at Chateau Marmont captures two Californias at a time when they have never been less coincident. Janigian serves up a brilliantly bipolar mix of memory and observation, fury and speculation, a story that may free his waiting screenwriter from false tethers to an overhyped city, even as it ties the author fast to a vast, prodigious, if lately unsung state."
—Joe Day, author of Corrections and Collections: Architectures for Art and Crime
