This exhibition uses Malcolm McCollough’s concept of the “ambient commons,” comprising screen-based digital landscape architecture, to explore the capitalizing power relations created by our mediated environment, and the general sense of content fatigue it inevitably produces.

Local Project

11-27th 44th Rd., Long Island City, NY

Sep 21, 2018 7-10 PM

In this issue of unbag, we seek to play with reverie as a way of thinking with fantasy, magic, and desire. In what ways do we dream about the world? Might the fantastical address the political? What compels such modes of detachment? Contributors include: Nada Shalaby & Dena Al-Adeeb, Barbara Byrd, Stephanie Castro, Brian Droitcour, Anaïs Duplan, Jazmin Jones, Yasmin Majeed, M. Milks, Lara Mimosa Montes, Gili Ostfield, Gabriel Pericàs, Isaac Pool, Penny Rafferty aka Omsk Social Club, Felicitas Rohden, Alona Weiss, Danielle Wu.

A Wild Ass Beyond: ApocalypseRN

Performance Space New York

150 First Ave., 4th Flr., New York, NY

Oct 19 – Dec 16, 2018

Installation with Sondra Perry, Caitlin Cherry and Nora N. Khan: “In the event of disaster, we, the people who have always been surviving, will simply continue to survive. We have learned skills you wouldn’t believe, enduring under police states. We refine trauma into gold and use exile as jet propellant… We then seek an unruly communion. New languages, icons, guides, rituals, spun and fired beneath a twilight canopy of fungi. We claim a gorgeous, baroque maximalism, a future that sounds, looks, and feels like our innermost thoughts.”

– Nora N. Khan
