In the world of retweets, regrams and now reactions, we are ever constant consumers of material culture in the ever-expanding chasm of the internet, including art. As the internet continues to grow, taking root in and changing all aspects of life, so changes art. Where high artistic achievement was once defined in strictly academic terms, now we see a democratization of the field throughout all the absurd realms of the World Wide Web. So what does it mean to be an artist in the age of the internet? Eight artists explore the organic, commoditized, and fabricated experiences where the lens of var...

Hey Folks,

Some news about my current projects. Hope to see you there if you’re able to make it.

OPENING Friday, OCT 7, 2016, 6-9pm

Good and Plenty

@ACRE PROJECTS, Chicago

Curated by MATT COLEMAN

Artists: Ruby Thorkelson // Brett Balogh // Didier Morelli // Stephanie Williams

The work on view in A Polite Distance is anything but polite. Social distance, or the perception of difference between members of various groups, is reinforced by politeness and other coded behaviors. “Polite distance” is seeing and not doing; a method of editing one’s response; a consideration of space; a way to call out inequalities, but only for the optics on social media. Brett Ian Balogh, Didier Morelli, Ruby Thorkelson, and Stephanie Williams address the pitfalls of polite distance through a range of strategies. From critiques of cultural colonization and the sociopolitical inequity created by gentrification and political vanity to meditations on Earth’s invisible forces, like gravity and electromagnetism, these ar...

Good and Plenty @School 33, Baltimore

Curated by Cynthia Connolly

Artists: Darcie Book // Amy Hughes Braden // Estee Fox // Matt Hollis // Stephanie Williams

Most of us grew up with color televisions, computer monitors, and mobile phones whose screens emanate a myriad of colors seemingly not replicable in the natural world. Using them daily, how much do these devices influence us? Utilizing distinctive methods, the artists of GOOD AND PLENTY may be attempting to recreate the luminosity and hue from these glowing beacons. Matt Hollis constructs new worlds using manufactured materials, drawing viewers close by employing the clean vivid color of familiar objects and textures disguised through accumulation. Stephanie Williams’ installation features unnaturally bright colors in thread and fabric, at first obscuring the depiction of forcemeat and human body parts. Darcie Book uses dried acrylic house paint to create swirled, candy-like three-d...

FORTHCOMING:

 

Theatre Du Jour brings unbridled spectacle to the small stage with Antonin Artaud’s 1947 radio play, To Have Done with The Judgement Of God. Written and produced for French Radio, the cacophonous rant against government and religion was shelved until after Artaud’s death. Using the play as a roadmap, this production utilizes sound, imagery, projections, and music to explore the author’s conviction of the futility of man’s relation to government, nature, God, and his body. Profane and irreverent, profound and funny, this performance fuels the debate of whether Artaud was a visionary or a madman, sublime or insane. Featuring Rachel Reed, Jerry Herbilla, Jacquelyn Paulin, and Annetta Dexter Sawyer. Directed by B. Stanley. Soundscapes by Nate Taylor and Rob Gould, sculptural costuming by Stephanie Williams.
