The September issue of "frieze" is out. In it, Jennifer Kabat reflects on how my work transmits messages of protest through the art of knitting. 

Congratulations and Celebrations

@congratulationsandcelebrations (Instagram) is a mail art project that asks participants to consider what it means to engage in an act of courage, and then emboldens that act by loaning out a power object LABRYS SWEATER to wear for its performance. Over 100 people have checked out the garment and submitted photographs of themselves acting courageously amidst a climate of marked social and political unrest. Please consider participating yourself!

Exhibition A

I have a new 24" x 17" archival pigment print available through Exhibition A: Land of Feminye. It is printed in an edition of 50 and available now.
