Art as social practice

A town-hall meeting on racial and economic issues at the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis. | Photo: Regina Martinez for The Pulitzer Foundation for the ArtsStretching the elastic waistband of art seems to worry some in the art world that it will never snap back to its familiar shape. The truth is, "ART" has been stretched before and it continues to encompass every new exploration, from paintings on canvas to fur-lined teacups, from wrapped bridges to live, naked sentinels at MoMA.

I don't think we're done finding how many more ideas those three letters can hold. I think artists can bring a voice, motivating energy, and creativity to social issues in a way no-one else can. Art as social practice? BRING IT.

BIO | An installation 

BIO | An Installation. Detail of studio mockup, February 2013BIO is a portrait of a space, a self-portrait, and an ecological observation. It's an installation in which I'll be responding to the iconic avocado walls of Joe Bar with a sculptural collage that builds over four weeks, using five months' worth of hoarded recycling, and other objects I would ordinarily throw out, as raw material.

The weight of influences and the influence of weight

This is art. Ok, art in the making.

I needed something heavy to hold down part of a project so that it would stick to another part.

The base where I could access a usable surface was small. So I built a tower.

The tower involved the tops of tin cans, a jar of Daniel Smith Stone Grey Gesso, an industrial expansion joint and a stack of art books.

It struck me before the tower (perhaps significantly) toppled and I had to find an alternate arrangement that for the moment, my influences were standing on my art rather than the other way around.
