Artist in Transit: Brass in Pocket at Booklyn Artists Alliance
A critique of the BRASS IN POCKET show:
Laying bare the evolution of the curatorial approach, as Lusty and Wadkins have, has the unfortunate effect of casting the show as feminist lite at best and as a rejection of feminist art at worst.

Nina Mashurova wrote a piece (“Making Safer Spaces”) about our conversation at Silent Barn Public Meeting X: Safer Spaces for The Media’s 23rd issue. I really enjoy her conclusion at the end, which I’ve included above, courtesy of The Media.
You can also stream the entire audio recording of this discussion on Silent Barn’s YouTube channel.
Relatedly important: we coined the term “brahvant garde" (meaning "bro avant garde") which I foresee being helpful in the forever future.
Thanks to Rachel Levy for snapping the photo above!

A photo I took during Hurricane Sandy last year, one of the most surreal sights I’ve ever seen. I took the bus from my parents’ house (on Long Island) to Jamaica station (Queens) to catch the J, which was the only train running, to get into Brooklyn. The subway was taped off because the MTA wasn’t charging fees for the first few days after the storm.

Public Meeting X
What is a safer space? How can we create inclusive spaces that promote a culture of respect and accountability? How do safer space policies work; how are they negotiated; how are they implemented? What are the benefits of implementing a safer space policy? What are the possible disadvantages or fallouts? Can any space truly be considered “safer”?
