Whitney Biennial, Debtfair and Rose Metal Press…

Pleasant surprise when I visited the Biennial the other day. One of the installations titled Debtfair addresses the amount of student debt in this country.  A few months ago they sent a call out to artists that are burdened with loans. The amount of people that answered were in the thousands. They took everyones info and made it available via flatscreen. I was able to find my name and view my answers as well as the images I sent in.Very cool to be part of the Biennial.

If you get a chance go see the Biennial. It’s an important show. All the work was chosen pre election which gives it an interesting spin. If you have the time it’s the kind of show one needs to see more than once. Well worth the trip. Says a lot about the times in which we live.

More good news is that Rose Metal Press (publishers of In The Circus Of You) will be reading Greetings From Karpland for consideration. This will be happening in August so we have to wait until then. In the meantime I started the self publishing process, but I’m putting that aside until after I hear from them. So stay tuned…

Revisiting Condo Cancer: Again I ask the question, why so much building and who is living in these places? Investors from China to 10-15 people sharing a studio apartment? How we are to survive emotionally and mentally in this environment. No wonder people are shooting each other. Makes perfect sense.

And this week we just learned that LGBT people have been taken off the census. Doesn’t matter if you contribute to society and pay your taxes. I think all LGBT people should stop paying taxes and put the money to personal use. I also think that all the Blue States should succeed from the US, but that’s another conversation altogether.

A big shout out to Brainard Carey who launched this website, How’s My Dealing.com exposing galleries that screw over artists.

I am still shamelessly promoting my course, Illustration Intensive that runs in June at Pratt Manhattan. Here are the details:
