What I am doing now

updated March 27, 2017

I’ve been distributing Fight Back Packs around the country. This side project has been a real coping mechanism for me.

I wrote a chapter for the book The Artist as Cultural Producer which you can buy now.

Last summer I was in South Africa collaborating with SWEAT (Sex Worker Education and Advocacy Taskforce). We created projects for the International AIDS Conference in Durban. It was a very successful set of projects that I need to document and get online.

For fun, my old 1964 Lambretta TV175 Series 3 is running, registered, and insured. I also have been building up a 2nd Generation Kawasaki KLR 650 that’s helped keep me sane since the election.

Center for Artistic Activism

I am founder and co-director of the Center for Artistic Activism. We have a new staff person, Rebecca Bray, and have made a series of post-election webinars you can watch for free.


I am teach at SUNY Purchase and was just awarded tenure last summer. I am now the Board of Study Coordinator for our program. This fall I was awarded a leave. This is huge.


As a board member at Eyebeam, I am working on strategic planning.
