I've very excited to be collaborating with many talented New Orleans musicians to activate my installation on Sunday, September 2nd. Starting at 7 pm, I will be giving informal walk-throughs of the work. At sunset, I will give a short artist talk and than turn it over to the musicians as they react to the work and ruminate on the fossils of what our culture will leave behind.

I am excited to be showing new work in "Constructing the Break," opening August 4 at the Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans. The exhibition will be on view through October 6, 2018.

From September 2018-January 2019, I will be an artist-in-residence at the Joan Mitchell Center in New Orleans as part of the Emerging Artist-in-Residence Program

Thank you to Defend New Orleans for this interview about my work, for selling my screen-print that supports the L'eau Est La Vie resistance camp, and for highlighting the struggle against the Bayou Bridge pipeline

I received a $5000 grant from the Platforms Fund, a collaborative re-granting effort of Antenna, Ashe Cultural Center, and Pelican Bomb, with support from the Andy Warhol Foundation, to support the renewable resources that power my installation, Terraforming in the Anthropocene, and to provide workshops there to the community that blend art and sustainability throughout the summer.

I made a limited-edition run of screenprints to support the No Bayou Bridge Coalition. All proceeds from this print go to support the L'eau Est La Vie resistance camp to the Bayou Bridge Pipeline  #noBBP
