I will be a Workspace Resident at Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center from March 9-23, 2019. As a part of my residency I’ll be working on a new project, teaching a class ‘The Conflicted Image’, and doing an artist talk.
March 3 - March 31, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, March 8th, 6 - 9PM
One Brooklyn Bridge Place
(waterfront side of)
360 Furman Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Gallery Hours: Saturdays and Sundays 11AM - 6:30PM
Curated by Basia Goszczynska, Regarding the Wild brings together paintings, sculptures, cyanotypes, drawings and a video installation by Nellie Appleby, Matt Arbuckle, Jason Baerg, Heidi Daehler, Jeffrey Heiman, Delphine Hennelly, Jodie Mack, Debby Miller, Alison Nguyen, Sharon Norwood, Ben Pederson, Gabriel Ramos and Alexander Stark.
My short video ‘every dog has its day’ will premiere at True/False Film Festival on March 1st at 7:45pm.
‘every dog has its day’ explores the notions of iconicity, immortality, and terror in consumer-produced media. Drawing from home movies, social media, surveillance, and videos created by religious cults/extremists, the appropriative work explores the porous visual relationships between domestic intimacy, terror and technology.
"...agitation, irritation, self-reflexivity, random acts of violence, narcissism, feedback loops of constructed selves, instant history and cultural amnesia all collide in mirror-play, pseudo-remembrance and denial."
February 12, 2019, 6–8pm: I will be performing in the reenactment of The S.C.U.M. Elite (2014) by pioneering feminist artist Chiara Fumai (1978–2017).
Fumai’s hybrid practice was deeply rooted in performance and her interests were far-reaching—encompassing radical feminism, chaos magick, terrorist propaganda and Italian Autonomist Marxism. In her work, she frequently deconstructed ideologies that have impeded women’s empowerment. Fumai performed as marginalized historical figures, transmitting occult messages that revived forgotten or discarded narratives.
The International Studio & Curatorial Program announces the opening of LESS LIGHT, an exhibition of work by Chiara Fumai , a 2017 ISCP alumna. The artist’s first solo exhibition on this continent, LESS LIGHT brings together two of Fumai’s pioneering works, The Book of Evil Spirits (2015) and Dogaressa Elisabetta Querini, Zalumma Agra, Annie Jones, Dope Head, Harry Houdini, Eusapia Palladino read Valerie Solanas (2012-13), as well as a reenactment of the performance The S.C.U.M. Elite (2014) at the opening reception.
I’m honored to be an artist-in-residence at the International Studio & Curatorial Program in Brooklyn, NY for all of 2019.

True/False Film Festival

I'm excited to be showing my video 'Dessert-Disaster' at True/False Film Festival this year. Program info below:
I will be an artist-in-residence at Signal Culture (Owego, NY) from February 16-23rd, 2018. I'll be focusing on a long-term archival video installation project temporarily titled, “Death and TV.” The piece centers on both banal and fatal televised media from the mid-90’s to present day; I use this material to explore the cultural surrounding, mediated death, and childhood memories. Footage sources include: QVC, news coverage of the Heaven’s Gate cult suicide, soap operas such as Days of Our Lives, news coverage of natural disasters, cartoons, televised Church masses, and UFO sightings.
“Death and TV” involves my interest in the blur between the mediated self and the actual self. In this project I question how the coming of age of certain televised phenomenons such as home shopping networks and sensationalized violence affected my own coming of age as a child in the 90’s.
I'm honored to have been awarded the 2018 Media Art Fellowship. I will be using BRIC's facilities and resources to create an installation version of my video 'Dessert-Disaster' and create a new piece temporarily titled 'Death and Television'.
Other grantees include: Chloë Bass, Mildred Beltre, Sarah E. Brook, Esperanza Cortes, Caroline Falby, Michelle Gevint, David Cutler Kenndy, Jemila MacEwan, Julie Petrusak, Kamran Shahraray, and Pacifico Silano.
