What if we could look at the most mundane elements of our daily lives through an artist’s lens? What if we could transform these everyday manufactured objects into something remarkably different even for a brief moment? Read More
Lisa A. Banner: Dean, you have a unique aesthetic language that you explore through photographs in series, and in installations. At times you carefully construct tableaus, and take a photograph, sometimes showing the artifice and sometimes not, often using yourself as subject or object in a tableau. Read More

For the past 15 months, I have been engaged in organizing discursive structures, specifically programming and moderating open format discussions on topics in contemporary art.

AMANDA SANFILIPPO: How did your work with radio begin?
AGUSTINA WOODGATE: “Radio Espacio Estacion (REE)” began with a 2011 grant from NALAC. I wanted to do a pirate radio. I was inspired by the movie “The Boat that Rocks” and also being in Miami with the connections here to pirate radio. Read More
Amanda Sanfilippo: Where did the interest in forming an alternative university dealing with data come from? What is the lack?
Olivia Ramos: It comes from recognizing that now there is no career for what Patty does–but there should be. Read More
Brooklyn-based artist Wayne Adams seeks to explore the unknown through his use of alternative media such as faux-fur and aluminum foil. The interplay between these media and their surrounding environments create a purposeful void in his works and an emotional and intellectual experience for the viewer, that facilitates conversations on reality and religion.

George Ferrandi is an installation and performance artist living in Brooklyn. She splits her time between running a small business that specializes in the restoration of statues of saints, teaching Sculpture and Performance Art at Rhode Island School of Design, and acting in her role as Program Director of Wayfarers, a studio program in Bushwick that provides artists with a way to get their work into the world independently of the commercial art market.

In the series of interviews presented in this Journal, I asked each of the artists what their motivating factors were that brought them to New York and if those reasons still resonate now. Read More
Meaghan Kent: There is so much that I would love to talk to you about. You had sent me these two different texts that I thought were a really nice parallel; there is the text from Interiors (“Sometimes we say Dreams When We Want to Say Hopes, or Wishes, or Aspirations” with Angelo Bellfatto) that was performed at the New Museum and the text on Group Material (“Group Material: Abstraction as the Onset of the Real”).

Meaghan Kent: Shall we start by looking at your work?
Noah Becker: Do you want to see it?
MK: I would love to. I haven’t seen them in person before. Although, I might have, because you did the show at Launch F18 in TriBeCa with Sam (Trioli) and Tim (Donovan), right? Read More
