Signs of Solidarity
Trinity Framing - 3rd and Bainbridge Sts, Philadelphia
January 20 - 27
I created a seven by seven foot painting (above) for the ambitious Signs of Solidarity project curated by Eric Preisendanz, Conrad Benner of Streets Dept, and others. More than thirty large signs with messages of solidarity have now been installed on storefronts around Philadelphia. You can find my sign at the excellent Trinity Framing at 3rd and Bainbridge Streets in the Queen Village neighborhood of Center City Philadelphia. Signs were installed in time for Inauguration Day, and will be up for about a week before being collected for a possible future second public installation. Find images of this project on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #signsofsolidarityphl
Improvisational Multi-Media Performance
Sunday February 26, 4pm
The Rotunda - 4014 Walnut St Philadelphia
$5-25, no one turned away for lack of funds
Dan Blacksberg (trombone) and Dexter Moore (keyboard) and I will be creating an improvisational multi-media performance as part of my ongoing Shul/Church Project. I will be creating projections using a live video feed of paper-cut fragments, in response to Dan and Dexter's pairing of sounds rooted in Jewish and Black Christian music.
The DC Shul/Church Project
Arlington Art Center - Arlington VA
April 8 - June 11, 2017
Opening Reception Saturday April 8, 6-9pm
This solo exhibition at the Arlington Art Center will include works on paper, sculpture, sound installation, and possibly video projection, referencing the history and current use of four historic former synagogue buildings in Washington DC.
My work was featured in a solo exhibition, The Shul / Church Project at The Abington Art Center, from February 5 - March 24, 2016
This exhibition included 16 framed portraits of former Synagogue buildings in Philadelphia that are currently Black churches, four larger work on paper, and an ambient audio installation.
A piece from my new series on work on paper, Vayehi ( And It Was) was on view at the Abington Art Center in Jenkintown PA, where it won the Juror's Prize in their annual juried exhibition.
I was honored to have a new version of my 2011 Hanukkah image used for a national campaign for Hanukkah actions happening across the country on December 16th, against police violence. Visit chanukahaction.org to learn more. You can purchase prints of the new image, and sets of the cards here.
The Museum of Art and Peace in Philadelphia acquired one of the original artworks from The Garden of Time. I'm so excited to have this wonderful institution be one of the first collectors of this series.
