I am currently developing the following projects:
Local Control: Are We All Anarcho-Capitalists Now?
A transmedia documentary (video, radio, publication, exhibition) about the aspiration for self-sufficiency and localism, the Right and Left in the 1960s, anarchism and libertarianism, the evolution of conservatism in the US – all through the lens of the story of Karl Hess. To be completed in Spring 2013.
Never The Same: Conversations About Art Transforming Politics & Community in Chicago & Beyond
An ongoing interview, archive, pedagogical and curatorial project organized with Rebecca Zorach. See more at never-the-same.org
Crisis Image Archive & Image Crisis
Following several weeks spent in the archives of the Alternative Press Center documenting visual representations of “crisis”, I am developing a multi-media installation and publication based on this visual research. In the summer of 2013 I will be producing an exhibition entitled Image Crisis where artists will be commissioned to develop new work in response to the crisis images.
Future Perfect: Ronald Reagan Time Capsule
A series of outdoor installations and eventually a publication developed in residence at the Grand Central Arts Center in the spring of 2013.
Immersive Life Practices
Part of a series of new edited volumes about Chicago art history, my volume will explore artists engagement with ways of living. Due out in late 2014.
