The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
Incorporating a history of collective art practice and activist politics, my work often addresses issues related to social, political and economic ideas; the work challenges the conventional aesthetics in art making by walking a fine line of what is considered art or activism. The concept for the work is often sought outside of or constructed beyond the studio, found in a world where the ideas can be encountered. The intention of the work is to transcend the usual platform in which, art is viewed and or displayed, to engage the viewer through participation, and to expand the function of the work by taking it beyond the institution. Using the artwork to create visibility or awareness of the idea, the hope is that the institution will lead the ideas back out into the world where they were discovered possibly extending a dialogue about the subject.
