My work was included in an exhibition about warfare and violence at Southeby's Institute of Art in December. Included in the show was a portion of my installation "1000 Coordinates of Violence" (about 400 of the 1000 components). And the 12 in. x 20 ft. drawing version of "After Reasonable Research". Check the special page on this site for more information about "Afteer Reseasonablle Research".
From Southeby's Institute of Art:
A group exhibition curated by Lara Arslanian and Chloe Smith.
Imagine is a group exhibition showcasing a variety of themes and methods explored by a select number of NY-based artists tackling the complexity of warfare. Whilst some artists use propagandist media and video as sourced material for their work, others turn to in-depth research, historiography, and textiles from which they aim to humanize the narrative. The result is an exhibition that explores not only artistic practices in response to war, but subtly pushes for wider cultural contemplation into the meaning of, and responses to, violence.
The exhibition title Imagine was taken from Liselot van der Heijden’s video piece of the same name. Imagine, usually hopeful and idealistic in nature, is here in direct contrast to the realities of violence and war represented by the series of works on display. This exhibition aims to guide viewers to imagine alternate realities of the modern era or guide them to face the realities of today.
