"Artists in Offices" podcast interview!

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of sitting down with Rebecca Bird Grigsby to talk about the balance between what I think of as “work work” and “art work” for her new podcast, Artists in Offices.

For the first season of the podcast, Rebecca interviewed artists who all have some kind of employment in addition to their artistic practice. Throughout the interviews, the artists (myself included) discuss how these two types of work intersect and support one another, or don’t. I loved listening to other folks discussing how they manage their lives as artists and professionals, and I think you will too!

"We have to talk about liberating minds"

We Have to Talk About Liberating Minds is currently on view at CTRL+SHFT Gallery in Oakland, CA. The exhibition showcases the work of current CTRL+SHFT Collective members, and was curated by guest curator Yomna Osman.

Being part of the CTRL+SHFT community has been one of the most meaningful experiences of my art practice and I am honored to be in such a stellar exhibition with my colleagues. The exhibition features eleven pieces including video, sculpture and drawing, as well as a live performance by Nina Wu and collaborators Rose Huey and Courtney Hope on Sunday, March 10th.

I hope you’re able to come check out the show, which is on view through March 16th. Gallery hours are every Saturday and Sunday, from 12 - 5pm.

Sabbath: The 2017 Dorothy Saxe Invitational opens this week!

I am so thrilled to be included in this exhibition, opening on Sunday. 

From the CJM:
The Dorothy Saxe Invitational, now in its eleventh iteration, gives contemporary artists from a variety of backgrounds the opportunity to delve into a Jewish tradition. While previous Invitationals have primarily focused around Jewish ceremonial and ritual objects, The 2017 Dorothy Saxe Invitational explores a Jewish idea—that of The Sabbath. 
 
Inviting fifty-seven artists to comment on Sabbath—the day of rest—gives the diverse group an opportunity to examine the depth of the fourth commandment, its influences, and its universality. A pillar of many religions and a staple of the modern workweek, the ideas in the Sabbath are integral to how time is viewed. All works of art in the exhibition are for sale; proceeds benefit the artists and The CJM exhibition program.
