My Autumn shows are falling into place! Summer vacation is over: I’m back to work with my collaborators making art for the new season.
Exhibition on view through September 27!
Beauteous is a site-specific, immersive theatrical takeover of the halls of Andrew Freedman Home. My media art will be featured, including video sculptures, interactive installations and AV performance.
Beauteous is a dystopic imagining of our near future that explores issues around perception, community branding, and the dynamics of hype. This post-apocalyptic science fiction tale incorporates narratives of LGBTQ subculture and hip-hop to extrapolate the cultural evolution of the Bronx into a probable future where we don’t change our present headlong dash to disaster. Guests will experience theatrical vignettes, musical performances, and art installations set amidst the faded glamor of a Gilded Age mansion located on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx.
The evening will commence with food and music in the garden and culminate on the mansion’s rooftop with a dance party hosted by Pauli Cakes & DJ She Marley Marl, featuring DJ sets by Bronx natives. Dance the night away to the sounds of BRUJAS and friends with DaDa Coz and gnarianna, DJ Red Alert, and Grandmaster Caz. Plus, enjoy drinks and food by local chefs and vendors for purchase throughout the evening.

ORIGINAL MUSIC COMPOSED BY
My media artwork collaborative installation with Barbara Held has been generating ever-changing light drawings and sound all year long, but all good things must move along to the next show. There’s just a few weeks left to catch this wide ranging group exhibition presenting experimental scores.
My sound art is part of an outdoor installation presented by OptoSonic Tea and Corinne Erni.
Standing outside the Tate Modern, I recorded a monolog for this 8-channel continuous sound installation positioned at the exterior of the Parrish Museum’s north entrance.
