With ASU Hayden Librarians I organized ASU’s Second Annual Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on March 31st, 2017.

Sent this print, Disco Volante (digital 3D render), to the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council this week to be a part of their spring benefit auction. Honored to be included. Disco Volante was the stage name of the yacht in the James Bond film Thunderball; the real life boat was once owned by Trump and was called the Trump Princess; it is currently owned by Al-Waleed bin Talal, a member of the Saudi royal family. The print was beautifully framed by Fine Art Framing in Tempe.

Curatorial Project: Electric Breath at Emerge 2017

January 30, 2017

I am curating a screening of experimental videos and animations for the Emerge Festival 2017 at ASU Feb. 25 (with head-curator Dehlia Hannah). Electric Breath is a screening that traces Frankensteinian themes in recent experimental video and animation. From monstrous avatars struggling to thrive in, or escape from, virtual worlds to animal-headed humans narrating a drowned city, the screening presents a forecast by turns satirical, dreamy and dystopian. Artists include Katie Torn, Carla Gannis, Marina Zurkow, Eva Davidova, and Hilary Harp + Suzie Silver. Link.

IMG_4329
I co-organized the Phoenix Nasty Women exhibition and Planned Parenthood benefit Jan. 14, 20 + 21 with Colleen Donohoe, Patricia Sannit, Laura Dragon and Erika Hanson. We were one of over ~30 sister shows to the originating Nasty Women benefit at the Knockdown Center in NYC. Our PHX version raised over $19,300 for Planned Parenthood Arizona. In addition to the work on the walls (we received ~320 donated works from Arizona artists) we hosted a dance performance (1/20) by Nicole L. Olsen and DanceArtists and a Nasty Women reading (1/21) curated by Deborah Sussman. Here’s our website: https://phxnastywomen.wordpress.com/ And here is an interview with me about the show on our local NPR station: http://kjzz.org/content/421266/nasty-women-phoenix-unite-art-show-open-phoenix
