Fake News Poetry Workshops as Radical Digital Media Literacy

Interfaces are the central instruments in the new economy of signs. They are both tools and discursive frames. Interfaces, insofar as they are instituted as an order of discourse, are transitive and mediating. Post-truth is the term coined to define a linguistic regime in which objective facts are less influential in the formation of public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief. This phenomenon can be analyzed as a specific system of interfaces where a whole set of communicative, technical, social, political and economic issues converge.

Smithsonian Institution, Archives of American Art

Visual Arts and the AIDS Epidemic. Interviewed December 2017 by Theodore Kerr. In 2015, the Archives of American Art received support from the Keith Haring Foundation to produce a series of in-depth oral history interviews with key witnesses to the AIDS epidemic and its impact on the visual art community. In selecting these narrators and their interviewers, the Archives worked with an advisory committee comprised of artists and advocates familiar with and active in the New York art community during the height of the AIDS epidemic. Subjects are primarily New York City-based.

Museum of the City of NY, AIDS at Home

AIDS at Home: Art and Everyday Activism examines how artists and activists have expanded the idea of caretaking and family and navigated the political stakes of domestic life in the face of the HIV/AIDS crisis, from the early 1980s to the present. From the earliest diagnoses, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has spurred New Yorkers to create new forms of social support, identify new legal battles, and explore new artistic terrain. The exhibition places paintings, photography, and film alongside archival objects from activist groups and support programs to uncover the private stories of HIV and AIDS and reconsider caretaking, community building, and making art as acts of resistance.

“We Care” (1990) included in show, 2017.
