  • New Contributions for Plot!  
  • Dissatisfied with the way the recent Fearless Girl sculpture in New York’s Financial District has dominated this year’s International Women’s Day conversation, and how it has been widely embraced by the public as a symbol of female empowerment, the editors of PLOT are pleased to present a critical response to this corporate advertising stunt by Blake Stimson: Lean In, The Statue.   www.plot.online

    We also highly recommend to read Kate Palmer Albers's The Pig and the Algorithm, a thoughtful reflection on computer vision technology and image captioning.   www.plot.online/the-pig-and-the-algorithm

  • Share (tentative title) / Phase II

  • Sterling Music Room Publication
  • Sterling Music Room was a living room turned studio, exhibition space and salon in the artist's Brooklyn apartment. While this project drew inspiration from many places, including the transformations of a Rococo period room now in the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, at its heart it was a response to the rising rents and current luxurification of New York City. Through planned events as well as chance encounters, Sterling Music Room examined the possibilities and poetics of a critical and engaged domesticity under the conditions of late capitalism. Work on a publication for this project is currently in progress.

PAST

  • December 2015
  • 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.

  • Share / Support from the Puffin Foundation
  • Share, an ongoing photographic project 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, received funding from the Puffin Foundation, NJ. 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.
