Dear Grand Rapids

My exhibition, Unretrospective, which debuted at Platform Gallery this spring has been reconstituted at the Fed Galleries of Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, MI as part of their exhibition Money Matters. The exhibition is also part of Art Prize, a quasi-democratic art award competition. As part of the Unretrospective, any of my previous works available on my website may be republished in China.

Update: Following the close of Unretrospective republications are no longer available.

Social Life of Artistic PropertyI’m pleased to announce the self-publication of our book, “The Social Life of Artistic Property” after two and half years of development in between the many other projects of the contributors.  The book is available for purchase or as a free PDF here.  Working with this group of artists and activists helped lead to the development of Placeholder, a long-term, rent-stabilized alternative building ownership model.  Stay tuned for another book release discussion in July.  Many thanks to the CUE Art Foundation for hosting our book launch panel earlier this month. The book is currently an Artnews selectionWe get historical case studies alongside a host of topical issues affecting artists’ abilities to work, such as the French droit de suite, the right to resale royalties of artists and their heirs.”
