STRANGER COMES TO TOWN

March 6 — 12, 2018
4 Times Square, NYC (Chashama), Entrance at 140 West 43rd Street

From March 6 – 12 I will have a project at SPRING/BREAK Art Show during Armory Arts Week. My response to the theme STRANGER COMES TO TOWN is a project I’ve titled (En)Coded Conversations.

List of works at SPRING/BREAK Art Fair site, on consignment through April 30!

(En)Coded conversations: we are all just passing through…

Chloë Bass, Juanli Carrión, Gonzalo Fuenmayor, Alicia Grullón, and Riitta Ikonen are storytellers, who specifically engage their audiences in conversation, and who make work that speaks to strangers helping one another navigate new terrain. Sometimes these conversations are awkward and uncomfortable, but they are always about making connections and navigating safe pathways.

Carrión grew up in regional Spain in a farming and wine growing county: members of the community knew one another, and everyone was connected. The butcher and the baker were essential community members; no one was a faceless stranger. When he moved to New York City he struggled to find ways to participate directly in his communities. As he navigated New York, he started to think about communities as ecosystems and his role, and our role, as plants in those ecosystems, and thus the idea of OSS gardens was born. The drawing for (En)coded conversations questions the text of the USA Immigration and Nationality Act by coloring individually its 148,123 characters to create botanical illustrations of the plants selected by immigrants interviewed for #OSS Manhattan.

Alicia Grullon, serves up empanada and knowledge with her project Empanar! –  a mobile art project working off Bronx street food culture and traditions from El Taller Gráfico Popular. Along with empanada, Grullon distributes flyers that provide information to immigrants on their rights and where to seek counsel.

Gonzalo Fuenmayor’s Papare series examines ideas of exoticism and the complicit and amnesic relationship between ornamentation and tragedy. Opulent Victorian chandeliers and other elements, reminiscent of a decadent colonial past, proliferate from banana bunches, alluding to a tragic and violent history associated with Banana trade worldwide. The theatricality and dramatic nature of the imagery, subordinate the contradictory into a delicate and imaginative order, evoking a certain kind of reconciliation or tense harmony between disjointed realities.

For Gather the house around the table, Bass produced a line of domestic materials that she uses to interact with her audiences –  sometimes in plain sight, and sometimes nearly imperceptibly. Visitors are invited to take their place in at the table, using her objects to enact everyday poetry and share food.

Riitta Ikonen’s photographs in which she costumes herself, and places herself in awkward conversation with built and natural environments are disguises. She is visible in plain sight, while also in conversation with a landscape. The works ask as to think about the costumes (or disguises?) we wear help us navigate new territory.

Individually, these works speak secrets to specific audiences. Collectively, they help us navigate new terrain and make conversation with new communities.

Invisible In Plain Sight

Invisible in plain sight

 

Commissioned by Art Connects New York, Invisible in Plain Sight is an Augmented Reality exhibition developed specifically for Senior Planet in NYC with work by artists who are also members of Senior Planet: Menny Borovski; Amy Epstein; Erica Feld; Arthur Fornari; John Leicmon; Anna Link; Marilyn Pappas; Geraldine Scalia; Henry Soto. The exhibition was conceived in collaboration with Jeff Crouse and Sebastian Bach; works have been developed in collaboration with Jeff Crouse and Peter Lester; and Crouse had additionally developed the ArtConnectsAR app, built in the Unity game engine using the Vuforia AR platform, by which the exhibition is accessible.

The exhibition opens up a space to suspend disbelief and reimagine space in the built environment in New York City. Exploring the urban landscapes of the city including all of its nooks and crannies, Invisible In Plain Sight includes new ephemeral digital works specifically for the Augumented Reality app. Drawing on their experience as painters, photographers, sculptors, holographers, illustrators, and poets, the artists reimagine our cityscape.

Swale Kickstarter

I’ll be working with Mary Mattingly and her AMAZING team on her SWALE project this coming summer.

I’m excited to let you know that we JUST launched a Kickstarter campaign for Swale.

Swale is a public floating food forest in New York City. In the summer of 2016, people will be able to visit a barge growing edible, perennial plants, and even harvest food.

If we meet our fundraising goal, we will be ready to launch in June.

Here is a link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1152620801/swale

We’d be so thrilled if you might be able to get involved in the project, even in a small way. And we’d also be grateful if you could share this link with your friends and colleagues.

Swale_boat_floatingfarm

With Swale, we want to ask, what if healthy, fresh food could be a free public service, and not just an expensive commodity? It’s important that this project happens on NYC’s water for several reasons:

      • It can move! We can visit different boroughs and the areas surrounding the city.
      • Alongside rain water, we can utilize the river water, purify it, and grow food with it.
      • You might know that all waterways are actually a form of commons: In New York’s case, they are overseen by many agencies, but not owned by anyone in particular, which is one of the reasons we have launched Swale on the water. It isn’t yet legal to grow public food in public spaces in New York City, but on a floating island… well, we’re pushing the boundaries of public space!

Swale is working on several different fronts at the same time.

1. We are co-creating a floating food forest.

2. We are working with community groups in each place we are able to dock, to establish permanent food forests on NYC’s publicly owned land.

3. We are working towards galvanizing enough support to advocate for policy change; for a city where public food is incorporated into the urban plan.

Reinforcing water as a commons also gives us more of a chance to look after them. We believe that the more we look after our common spaces, the more that they look after us.

Follow along as we develop our docking schedule: http://www.swaleny.org

Mary’s built an amazing team, and A Blade of Grass have provided her with a fellowship to begin the process : but its going to take YOU to help us make it REAL…

Please join us on the journey!

Amanda, Mary, and the SWALE team!

Organized by independent curator Amanda McDonald Crowley (the director of Eyebeam from 2005 to 2011), the show includes Cey Adams ironic portrait of the smiling black chef from the packaging for Cream of Wheat, Emilie Baltz’ yummy-looking color photos of junk food and Kira Nam Greene’s luscious watercolors of open cans of Chef Boyardee and packages of Ding Dongs and Ring Dings, which are realistically rendered over brightly patterned fields.

Food nostalgia looks at food in contemporary America through a lens of fast food iconography and industrial food production. Participating artists variously draw on popular cultural references, brand recognition, bodies, memory, nostalgia, and playfulness. They ask us to think about our relationship to our colonial pasts, feminist thinking, cultural diversity, and marketing culture. The corporatisation of our food systems is deeply entrenched in our psyche; historical and contemporary trade routes of our food affect our cultural landscape. As a framework to explore how we cook, eat, and consume, food nostalgia will be a platform to share ideas, and food.
