Save The World, UPDATE

This Machine…
I am glad to announce I was awarded Best In Show for my piece, This Machine…, by Off the Wall Gallery’s community jury. What makes this a real honor is the overall strength of the show. There are some great artists who came up with a diverse array of answers to the show’s theme. It will be up all summer, I encourage you all to go check it out.

‘A’ Is for Adjunct


I have had the opportunity to work with a lot of great artists through the United Academics of Philadelphia (AFT Local 9608), including artist and activist Jennie Shanker. She put together a show at the Pennsylvania State House in Harrisburg comprised of artists who also work as Adjuncts. The title, Plan A: Artist Adjuncts in Academia was based on a piece I wrote on my adjunct experience (found here). The show aimed to educate State Legislators about the plight of Adjuncts who at the time were fighting against Temple University, which was arguing against their right for an election to Unionize before the PLRB.

Emirates Fine Art Society’s 29th Annual Exhibition 2011

Sharjah Art Museum

While attending Graduate School at the University of the Arts, I had the pleasure of befriending visiting artist Mohammed Kazem. He had casually mentioned bringing students from UArts to the U.A.E, and possibly set up a space to show our work as an excuse to spend time in his home country.
Little did I know that a few months later I would be submitting work to the Emirates Fine Art Society‘s 29th Annual Exhibition, curated by Layla Juma Rashid. Twelve of us, including myself, were accepted and present our work at the Sharjah Art Museum with 24 other artist form the U.A.E., Germany and Italy including Hassan Sharif, Cristiana De Marchi and Maisoon Al Saleh.
