A Perfect Storm
February 15 - March 8, 2020
Gallery 8, 2602 Frederick Douglass Blvd, New York, NY
Curated by Faction Art's new Curator-In-Residence, Natasha Becker, A Perfect Storm will include work by artists Tatiana Arocha, Lionel Cruet, Demian DinéYazhi´, Allison Janae Hamilton, Riitta Ikonen, Joiri Minaya and Mark Tribe. A Perfect Storm refers to a rare combination of events, arising from a number of negative factors, that creates an unusually bad situation. It is an apt expression for the urgent and unresolved challenges of global warming, pollution, climate change, and many more environmental problems that have become a reality for millions of people. Through drawing, painting, photography, and installation art, the artists presented in this exhibition offer varied interpretations on the interconnected realities of natural and human made environments, land and bodies, culture and memory. They take into consideration the voices of those with the most intimate knowledge of the environment and comment on their experiences of resistance, relocations, and adaptations.

HARVEST is formatted as a living artist showcase and marks the first public program undertaken by Sidel & McElwreath, a new female-founded contemporary art advisory practice committed to supporting living artists. The exhibition proudly presents works by Todd Bienvenu, Jennifer Caviola, Max Colby, Rachel Garrard, Jeila Gueramian, Fumihiro Matsuzaki, Caris Reid and Mark Tribe.
This exhibition uses as its foundation the symbolic concept of harvest. The curatorial focus is placed both on the literal convening of a broad range of media, mediums, and concepts, as well as the constellation of complex personal biographies represented by the work of six artists. Featuring iconographies ranging from bucolic and astral, to figurative and expressionistic, the works on view emphasize the artists' interests in both human and natural ecologies.

Art has a unique power to reach to people when facts and arguments can't.
Deep Green: Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument is a 24-hour-long landscape film with immersive sound that captures the beauty and fragility of a wilderness that is threatened by climate change. The Schneider Museum of Art in Ashland, Oregon will exhibit the film and preserve it in their permanent collection for future generations. Join me as I complete this film in time for its premiere at Schneider Museum of Art this Fall.

Medium: "People say making art in times of crisis is like fiddling while Rome burns, or like the musicians on the Titanic who kept playing as the ship went down. I'm like, 'Play on'". Read the rest of the interview here.
Material Resources: Intersections of Art and the Environment
December 6, 2018 - June 2, 2019
Material Resources: Intersections of Art and the Environment explores the intersections of art and the environment with works drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection. Featuring objects from antiquity to today, "Material Resources: Intersections of Art and the Environment" examines artists’ dependence on Earth’s material resources, while presenting art as an integral “material” resource in the study of the environment.

“The Art Happens Here: Net Art’s Archival Poetics” features sixteen works from throughout net art history, showcasing a wide range of forms—websites, software, sculpture, graphics, books, and merchandise—while offering a space for considering the internet as social process, material infrastructure, and lived experience. The works on view have been selected from "Net Art Anthology," Rhizome’s major online exhibition featuring one hundred works that sketch a possible canon for net art. Presented online at anthology.rhizome.org, “Net Art Anthology” represents a major archival effort, leveraging Rhizome’s unique expertise in the history of network culture and the display and preservation of born-digital artworks. Open-ended, performative, and ephemeral, artworks that circulate on and respond to the internet often survive only as fragments and traces, offering glimpses
of a larger networked context that can never be fully grasped.

Natural Wonders showcases the work of thirteen American artists who engage nature in all its fierce magnificence. Beyond just highlighting nature’s beauty, the featured artists—Suzanne Anker, Lauren Fensterstock, Patrick Jacobs, Maya Lin, Roxy Paine, Miljohn Ruperto & Ulrik Heltoft, Diana Thater, Jennifer Trask, Mark Tribe, Kathleen Vance, T.J. Wilcox, and Dustin Yellin—also hint at the more disquieting aspects of the natural world. As such, the works in this exhibition can be viewed as a type of neo-sublime, mixing the beautiful and terrifying to produce awe in the beholder in accord with tenets of eighteenth-century philosopher Edmund Burke. And not unlike nineteenth-century sublime landscapes of the Hudson River School or the Romantic era, these recent works conjure the raw power and unruliness of nature along with its harmonious effects—a state at once captivating and unsettling. Indeed, a menace can be found lurking within most of the work in Natural Wonders, and this danger often stems from human intervention.

Through the use and lens of digital tools and technology, "Stream Capture" asks how we might engage with a reimagining of the natural environment if we cannot physically enter it. The work in the exhibition explores human perception, simulation, mapping, time and scale shifts, and historical study and preservation. The exhibition offers a sense of the future and the possibility of movement from place to place (here to there) and from time to time (present to future).

I'm showing a photograph in the gallery (pictured above) and linking to the project from the exhibition's mobile website.
