With Kat Griefen I am co-hosting a Plenary Session titled Gender Play at Rutgers University’s Extending Play Media Studies conference April 18. Our panelists are Myfanwy Ashmore, Heidi Boisvert and Gillian Smith. I like this mission of the conference: Play can be hard work and serious business. It’s time to push beyond the conceptualization of play as merely the pursuit of leisure and consider how the issues of power, affect, labor, identity, and privacy surround the idea and practice of play. The Rutgers Media Studies Conference: Extending Play aims to explore, understand, and facilitate discussion of play as a mediating practice and how play operates at the center of media.

AIR History Video

In 2008 I created a short (16-minute) documentary about AIR Gallery, the first artist-run, all-women gallery in the U.S. Founded in 1972, the gallery is still going strong and is home to many interesting artists and runs several important public programs. Esteemed artists Nancy Spero, Dotty Attie, Mary Beth Edelson, Agnes Denes, Ana Mendieta and others began their careers at AIR> The AIR documentary was produced as part of the AIR History show, on exhibit at Fales Library and the Tracey / Barry Gallery at New York University from May through October 2008. The video was produced by Kat Griefen and AIR Gallery. Major funding was provided by Fales Library. Camera, editing and directing by Meredith Drum.
