My sculpture proposal for a Monument to a Missing Island was chosen for FLOW16 which will be presented on Randall's Island next summer. A project of the Randall's Park Alliance, the Bronx Museum, and Made Event, FLOW provides funding to realize temporary public sculptures on the island. FLOW15 is on view now. More details on my project to follow....
BRONX CALLING: The Third AIM Biennial
I'm writing to invite you to the opening of Bronx Calling: The Third AIM Biennial at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. The reception is Wednesday July 15, 2015, 6-9 p.m. The exhibition runs from July 9–September 20, 2015.
I will be showing Threat Assessment, a recent large-scale drawing (seen above).Bronx Calling: The Third AIM Biennial, is curated by Hatuey Ramos-Fermín and Laura Napier and features the work of 72 artists who participated in the Bronx Museum's Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program in 2014 and 2015. I had the honor to participate in the program earlier this year and it was a wonderful experience and opportunity to meet a lot of great artists.
I hope you can make it to the opening or see the show sometime this summer, the Bronx is not as far as you think! Directions here.
I will be showing a drawing in Smack Mellon's RESPOND, an exhibition organized "to respond to the continued failure of the United States to protect its black citizens from police discrimination and violence. In order to channel our outrage into actions that can facilitate systemic change, Smack Mellon’s gallery space will be used to present events, performances and artworks that address the institutional racism that allows for the police to murder black members of the community."
The exhibition dates for RESPOND are January 17- February 22, 2015.
The reception will be on Saturday, January 17, 5-8pm.
SMACK MELLON is located at 92 Plymouth Street in DUMBO.
New work, eight-by-eight feet.
I posted the first five texts in a new section on the website, About My Work, which can be found under the About tab in the menu bar. The section includes new statements on Threat Assessment, Target Practice and Bloodletting; the texts written for the What War Was drawings, and the brochure produced for CIrcumstances, as part of HDTS5 in 2006.
I'll be posting texts on most of the series included in the Works section, and several longer pieces in the weeks to come.
I'm proud to be a part of this historic exhibition on William F. Mangels, the brilliant designer and inventor behind Coney Island and many other 20th century amusement parks. Curated by Jeff Richman the exhibition runs September 7-October 26, 2014, in the chapel at the Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn (5th Ave./25th Street). It's my first exhibition in a cemetery and my first in a National Historic Landmark.
Four pieces based on individual elements from Mangels shooting galleries for the exhibition at Greenwood Cemetery.
