Text shapes in "Double Vision: Artists Who Instagram"

Text shapes in "Double Vision: Artists Who Instagram"
Two drawings and a painting, all patterned on the shapes of my handwriting, were in the group exhibition "Double Vision: Artists Who Instagram" at the Hudson Valley Community College Teaching Gallery, in Troy, New York (February 7 - March 9, 2019).  Just before the exhibition's opening reception, I participated in an artists' panel about the relation between Instagram and our other studio work.  The other artists in the exhibition were Rosaire Appel, Janice Caswell (co-curator), Joan Grubin, Erick Johnson (co-curator), Mary Lum, Tom Martinelli, Doreen McCarthy, Tom Nicol, Chris Sauter, and Karen Schifano.

"'We Live In a Nuthouse!' Zero Mostel on Art, Politics, and America" published in Hyperallergic Weekend
Hyperallergic Weekend published my essay on an interview between Studs Terkel and Zero Mostel, in which Mostel shares his view of Jackson Pollock's drip paintings: they look like your mind when you try to make sense of the senseless idea that you can survive a nuclear bomb.  "'We Live In a Nuthouse!' Zero Mostel on Art, Politics, and America" posted 57 years after the interview, and this anniversary also coincides with the anniversary of the bomb blasts in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
