Mondo Tondo at Arcadia Contemporary

I am honored to announce that my work will be included in Mondo Tondo, a group show opening this Saturday, March 16th, at Arcadia Contemporary in Pasadena, California. Many thanks to Artefex for supplying each artist in the show with a 24” diameter circular panel on which to make their work. For my piece, I chose to tackle the subject of Ophelia, drawing inspiration from a poem by French poet, Arthur Rimbaud.

On the calm black water where the stars are sleeping
White Ophelia floats like a great lily;
Floats very slowly, lying in her long veils...
- In the far-off woods you can hear them sound the mort.
— Arthur Rimbaud, Ophelia

Mondo Tondo is free and open to the public. The opening reception will be held Saturday, March 16th, from 6-9pm. If you would like to know more about the show or inquire about any of the works show, please contact info@arcadiacontemporary.com.

Facets of Queer at Størpunkt Gallery

I am honored to announce that I will be a part of FACETS OF QUEER, opening this week at Størpunkt Gallery in Munich Germany!

The term 'queer' is often associated with being gay, but its history is one of a more complex kind. Having passed through a sequence of semantic changes – from being used in the 19th century as a term of abuse for homosexuality to today's more usual usage of describing gender identities that deviate from heterosexual norms – in 2017 'queer' found its way into the Duden, the dictionary of the German language. Uniting contemporary positions from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, this cross-media exhibition aims to capture the term's multifaceted character and historically grounded complexity. 

Deeply personal and intimate works reveal a remarkable range of identities and stories, from the playful to the severe, from the religious to the political. Whether this means gaining unexpected insights into queer lives or exploring questions of personal identity – with paintings, drawings, photographs, film and sculpture from such wide-ranging artists as Benyamin Reich, Seungyea Park and Tonino Mattu – størpunkt wants to celebrate the diversity of queer art as never before in Munich. The exhibition has been organized in cooperation with the corporate diversity networks Glamazon (Amazon) and Arcus (Clifford Chance).

ALEAH CHAPIN, ALESSANDRO BOSTELMANN, BENYAMIN REICH, CIGDEM AKY, DAVID SCHERMANN, ERVIL JOVKOVIC, JANINA ROIDER, JULIA BELOVA, LENA KUNZ, NILS FRANKE, REUBEN NEGRON, SEUNGYEA PARK, STEFANIE ZIEGLER UND LISA WENK, TONINO MATTU, VALENTINA MURABITO

The exhibition FACETS OF QUEER will run from 10 November until 15 December 2018. The opening day will be on 9 November 2018.
