I’ve some work in Oranbeg Press NET 06 Art as Theory
Prompt:Traditionally, art and theory are conceived of as two distinct yet related endeavors, in which theory is dominantly articulated linguistically. What does theory look like when it is articulated and performed visually? We are interested in art that occupies this terrain, works that both illustrate and operate as theory; art that theorizes.
Curators: Sarah Pfohl and Derek R. Ford.
Chris Moffett, Jay Gould, Nydia Blas Williams, Josh Brilliant, Mitch Patrick, Jacob Riddle, Rose Marie Cromwell and Lizz Thabet.

Once Upon A Time, There Was the End
Organized by Rachel Gugelberger, Independent Curator and Writer
Borrowing its title from the stock opening and closing phrases of traditional oral narratives, in particular fairy tales, the exhibition Once Upon a Time, There Was the End pivots around two central themes: stories elicited by modalities of the book in the face of rapid technological transformation, and anxiety about the end of the book as echoed in apocalyptic, dystopian and speculative visions. The exhibition presents the work of eleven artists who employ conceptual strategies and material forms that consider the dematerialization of the book; the interplay between physical and digital; and irreducible form(s) in books, works on paper, photography, video, sculpture, performance and Web-based projects. Artists include: Madeline Djerejian, Ellen Harvey, Warren Lehrer, Loren Madsen, Momen Tech, Mitch Patrick, Emilio Chapela Perez, Lisa Schilling, Sara Shaoul, Karina Aguilera Skvirsky, and Andrew Norman Wilson.
On view from April 18, 2014 - June 28, 2014.
