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.

Guns vs. Butter is an exhibition of anti-war graphics, bringing together the contemporary print work of the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative alongside posters from the historical collection housed in the Interference Archive. The exhibition contextualizes the work of current socially-motivated graphics alongside a history of posters as an integral element of popular grassroots movements against war, colonialism, and military occupation.
This exhibition is currently on at Future Tenant in Pittsburgh, PA until Jan.6, 2013. More details here.
