Fall Updates

Aside

Greetings!

This fall has meant a lot of trips to NYC, which was great.

Starting off, my solo exhibition, “Stars, They’re Just Like Us” as Interstate Projects, ran from Sept. 7 – Oct. 20.

“The Invisible World” screened as part of Views from the Avant-Garde, New York Film Festival. I was in attendance at the sold-out program and saw lots of terrific work within the festival.

I presented a solo screening of work at Anthology Film Archives as part of their Show & Tell Series. It was a great turnout with a really enjoyable conversation afterwards moderated by Rachel Rakes.

Colin Beckett wrote a thoughtful article in The L Magazine that accompanied both “Stars, They’re Just Like Us” and the Anthology screening. I was flattered by his insights and the ideas he drew out from my work.
