Current Work

I am currently developing the following projects:

Moving Units

A public event series about finance and food at the Kentucky Museum of Arts and Crafts in the Summer of 2015.

Organize Your Own

Organize Your Own: Contemporary Responses to the Politics and Poetry of Self-Determination Movements (Working Title) – project with Kelly Writers House (Philadelphia, PA), Columbia College A+D Gallery (Chicago, IL) and Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research (Louisville, KY)
 
Organize Your Own is an exhibition and event series featuring contemporary artists and poets that have been invited to respond to archival materials relating to the history of white people initiating community organizing within their own working-class white neighborhoods in Philadelphia, Chicago and Louisville based on the mandate from the Black Power movement to “organize your own” community against racism. The primary documents the contributors have been asked to respond to include a collection of the Young Patriots Organization’s out-of-print poetry books, Time of the Phoenix, that will invite viewers to consider the relationship between poetry and the politics of self-determination groups.

Ongoing

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 biography of Karl Hess.
