I’m exhibiting work in September  from An autobiography of Miss Wish as part of the Organ Vida photography festival.   The exhibition  at Gallery NOVA , a non-commercial, experimental art space,  includes original objects, drawings and personal items from Kimberly (Miss Wish) along with images and videos, some of them shot this summer.  Thanks to the brilliant Croatian curator Marina Paulenka for embracing the work and offering her vision and insight.   The videos – my first foray into multi channel projections –  were edited with Elyse Blennerhassett, a talented sound artist based in Brooklyn.

Museum of Broken Windows
September 22 – September 30, 2018
9 West 8th Street, NY, NY

I’m delighted to be contributing two pictures as part of this pop up show highlighting the NYPD’s failed policing strategy from Stop and Frisk to more lethal forms of police violence.  Thanks to the New York Civil Liberties Union for leading the way.

“The Museum of Broken Windows is a pop-up experience in New York City, which features the work of artists from around the country. The Museum showcases the ineffectiveness of broken windows policing, which criminalizes our most vulnerable communities. The strategy of broken windows policing is outdated and has never been proven to be effective at reducing crime. For decades, communities of color have been disproportionately impacted by broken windows policing.”
