A series of nine remote screenings, events, and discussions in lieu of IRL gallery programming at Chen’s, a Brooklyn-based gallery directed by Howie Chen and Alex Ito. Chen’s Gallery With this Summer 2020 series, we focus on issues of hegemony, representation, solidarity, and new futures. With the ongoing uprising and the relentless news cycle, we hope to create a space that is communal and restorative by spending time with people whose individual efforts find ways to connect art to the pressing matters of life. We are interested in how Art — as a field of images, abstractions, gestures, ...

PublisherChen's2020
A reading event with artist A.L. Steiner and collaborator/translator Noura Wedell with a discussion on the legacy of Françoise d’Eaubonne’s activist work and original ecofeminist writing as part of an inquiry into its current-day viability as a call to action, and a recourse to mutation. During the development of French second-wave Eurocentric feminism arose the writings of Françoise d’Eaubonne, who coined the term ‘ecofeminism’ in 1974 as part of her 274-page tract Le Féminisme ou la mort. (Feminism or death.). Unsurprisingly, although regretfully, this critical text – along with the breadth of her prolific writings – has yet to receive English ...

For NDP#5, artist and musician Sadie Laska helped with the process of inviting contributors. NDP#5 is the final installment of North Drive Press.

We hope North Drive Press has added to the ...

Shifter’s 20th issue, What We Can Knot draws from George Bernard Shaw’s quip “He who can, does; he who cannot, teaches.” In this issue we would like to parse out and challenge what we see to be Shaw’s false binary, and to explore the value of negotiation and collaboration as important elements both in the studio and in the classroom. To this end we have invited several individuals who are both artist and educator, to consider the active relation between art practice and teaching in their life. We have invited them to do this through a conversation or correspondence with ...

Publisheronestar press2003
STOP onestar press is a poetic visual documentation of the paper manufacturing industry. Divided into three chapters, the book opens with 48 portraits of trees, then documents the fate of these trees as they are cut, piled, hauled and finally pulped in giant factories. The book concludes with an inventory of disposable paper products: bundled paper, cardboard boxes, newspapers, paper cups, paper bags, and, in a self-critiquing gesture, the pages of the book itself. STOP onestar press draws attention to the physical history of the paper bound into each copy of the book, and points to the viewer’s complicity in ...
