  • Sterling Music Room
  • Sterling Music Room is a living room turned exhibition space and salon in my Brooklyn apartment. While this project draws inspiration from many places, including the transformations of a Rococo period room now in the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, at its heart it is a response to the rising rents and current luxurification of New York City. Through planned events as well as chance encounters, Sterling Music Room will examine the possibilities and poetics of a critical and engaged domesticity under the conditions of late capitalism.

  • Announcing the Beta-Launch of Plot!
  • It is an exciting moment for me to share Plot, a new editorial project I've been working on with Nawaaz Ahmed for the past year, and we are finally going public with it. Faced with an ever-proliferating stream of images on our digital devices and often in addictively gratifying formats that encourage mindless consumption, the mode of Plot is one of prolonged contemplation and attention to detail whereby images can be discussed within potent networks of conceptual and experimental relations.
    Plot will work with contributors from a wide range of disciplines, starting with its initial release featuring Becca Albee, Alison Burstein, David Court, Andrew Finegold, Matt Garite, Wiebke Grösch & Frank Metzger, Oliver Husain, Claudia Weber, Kirsten Weiss, and Guy Witzel.

  • Of Gentle Birth - Exhibition at Repair The World, Brooklyn
  • Crown Heights, Bedford-Stuyvesant and Lefferts Gardens are three neighborhoods increasingly populated by newcomers; this change is part of a larger Brooklyn transformation. In response to this, artists from these neighborhoods were asked to produce and share works that engage with these places and themes. Participating artists: Daniel Bejar, Zachary Fabri, Heather Hart, Carl E. Hazlewood, Naomi Safran-Hon, Steffani Jemison, Baseera Khan, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Gabriel Specter, Hidemi Takagi, and Claudia Weber.

  • Support from the Puffin Foundation
  • My long-term project Share (tentative title) received funding from the Puffin Foundation, NJ.
    Share is an ongoing photo documentation that began in 2013 and focuses on the more uneventful and mundane moments that define the regular working days in New York‘s Financial District. The project‘s motivation is to investigate the complex relationship between abstract global trading and concrete local impact and to build up an extensive, alternative body of imagery for a neighborhood that is rapidly changing.

PAST

  • Take the Day Off
  • The second part of my work Take the Day Off for the exhibition "One Trace After" curated by Alison Burstein at NURTUREart, Brooklyn, used the format of a declaration to ask the staff of the non-profit gallery to take a (paid) day off. They accepted the offer and the exhibition space closed for one day.
