Over the past few months, Frank Juarez and Zach Kidder along with Erica Barringer, Summer Intern, and Jenna Kidder visited Brandon Bauer, Tony Conrad, Melissa Dorn Richards and William Zuback and filmed/photographed/interviewed the artists. You will get an up and close tour of their studios, hear them talk about their work, and their influences.

I just found out my Post-Internet Verb List (after Serra) has been one of the inspirations for a new project by the London based artist Molly Richards- Virtual Verbs. As stated on the website for the project:
“Influenced by Richard Serra’s 1972 Verb List (over 100 processes that could be done to, or with a given material) and Brandon Bauer’s re-appropriated list (2010) I’ve compiled a set of verbs that have been re-appropriated, gained new meaning or have been invented since the birth and evolution of the internet reflective of my generation.
Looking at the internet as a subject as well as a medium, how do these newly appropriated verbs sculpt the internet? In commissioning a selection of international artists to respond to this verb list, virtualverbs.com invites them to react artistically to the internet in a physical way with a physical outcome placing the same value on virtual verbs and ‘real’ verbs as a creative methods.”
Keep watching the site as new works are added in response the the list! It looks like a great project.
I have begun working on a new project titled “Living With The Bomb”. It is a project exploring nuclear proliferation, nuclear disarmament, and peoples movements for the abolition of nuclear weapons. I have began a few associated sites related to the exploration and development of the work. There is a wordpress site relating to research and development of the project that can be found here. I have also started a timeline relating to my research that can be found here. Both of these site are in progress and will act as a supplement to the larger project and to the work produced.
The first iteration of the work is scheduled for exhibition at the Frank Juarez Gallery at the end of November.
To mark the closing day of the “Posters of Inspirational European Women: Taken from the zine Shape & Situate” exhibition, Space Station Sixty Five in London hosted a collection of resources from other sociopolitical art, poster, zine and publication projects for everyone to explore. Inspirational work featured, displayed, exhibited and screened included projects such as: the Celebrate People’s History poster project, Occuprint, Inspired Agitators, Dead Feminists, Peops, Great Anarchists, and many more.
A great recap of the events can be found on the blog- glue, a glove and some plyers.
