Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

Ksenya Gurshtein, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Ulrich Museum of Art, Wichita State University (Wichita, KS), and frequent contributor to Hyperallergic, reviewed over 600 individual works submitted for consideration. The applicant pool comprised 235 artists, representing only the states of Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and/or Wyoming. Of the 67 works selected, "f,or,ever", a 2019 drawing I developed in collaboration with Lando Valdez, was shown in both the brick-and-mortar and virtual spaces of the Salina Art Center. The piece was awarded the Second Place prize. Two public video statements about the work were released and remain online for viewing. Ksenya Gurshtein delivered a verbal analysis of the piece, attending thoughtfully to both its technical and conceptual dimensions; I gave a lengthy video interview with Gretchen Boyum, Interim Curator at the Salina Art Center.<br>URL, virtual exhibition: <a href="https://www.salinaartcenter.org/salinabiennial">https://www.salinaartcenter.org/salinabiennial</a><br>URL, Ksenya Gurshtein's discussion of the work: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6__XWwUI16Q">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6__XWwUI16Q</a><br>URL, Fremaux interview: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tna9vp9V75A">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tna9vp9V75A</a>
