As it’s International Women’s Day it seems like a good time to mention that I shall be off to the states in May and June for six weeks to work on a Rosendale Cultural Crossroads Public Art Residency in New York State with Women’s Studio Workshop. I did one of my first ever residencies at WSW back in 2007 and made a limited edition artist’s book called ‘Unfolding Architecture’. I am thrilled to be going back! The picture below (a detail from Masaccio’s Saints Jerome and John the Baptist) is a tiny clue to what will be going on when I am looking at the relationship people in the town have with the architecture there.
I also have a group show coming up in April called Indefinable Cities but more about that soon…
‘and all of the spaces inbetween’ will be in this exhibition of artists’ books at SUNY Cortland, New York State from March 12th to April 6th. A catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
Exhibiting artists: Dean Ebben, Jennifer Grimyser, Candance Hicks, Christopher K. Ho, Alison Knowles, Jessica Lagunas, Dani Leventhal, Barbara Rosenthal, Buzz Spector, Emily Speed. With work from the permanent collection by Carl Andre, John Baldessari, Peter Bernett, Jenny Holzer, Jeffrey Keedy, Barbara Kruger, Edda Renous, Ed Ruscha and Linn Underhill.

“These works examine the relationship between the visual elements and literary devices at play and emphasize the correlation between meaning and metaphor. They were selected based on three criteria: the approach to craft tradition and the conceptual motivation, the source of the content, and the materiality of the language. The purpose is to trace the heritage of these components back to the artist’s overall practice, most of them working with familiar forms, and to question the ways in which the information is being transmitted and consumed”
