I am honored to be sharing space with Willie Cole in The New York Times article “Willie Cole’s Ecological Interventions Turn Trash Into Art” by Laura van Straaten. Willie has been a huge inspiration to me and is currently the artist-in-residence at Express Newark. Our time co-teaching Seminar in Contemporary Art during the fall 2023 semester at Rutgers University – Newark inspired the Perceptual Engineering exhibition, on view now at the Window Gallery at Paul Robeson Galleries. His permanent sculptures Lumen-less Lantern and Spirit Catcher are on view in Express Newark and the Hahne Building. Special thanks to all of the artists involved as well and the incredible support of Nick Kline, Salamishah Tillet , Anthony Alvarez, Keary Rosen, Anonda Bell, Alliyah Allen. Also currently on view: Things We Do in the Dark: Cinematic Experiments in Kinship curated by Farrah Rahaman – not to be missed!
