I am editor-in-chief and co-founder of Hyperallergic, the world’s greatest art blogazine and the winner of the 2014 “best blog” award from AICA-US, the national art critics association.
I write and lecture about contemporary art, performance, multiculturalism, politics, the internet, literature, and visual culture, and my best work combines words with images I create.
My curatorial interests are focused on decolonization and I like to work in unorthodox spaces.
In 2010, I curated #TheSocialGraph (2010), which was the first exploration of social media art at Outpost in Ridgewood, Queens. The following year I organized On Display (2011) at Bushwick’s Storefront Gallery, which featured the work of Sharon Butler, Joy Curtis, and Cathy Lee Quinlan. In 2013, I co-curated Walking Into the Dashboard with Ben Valentine. It was an exhibition, catalogue, and symposium exploring how Tumblr is being used as an artistic medium by artists and creative amateurs around the world. This year, I curated The Arch of My Eye’s Orbit at BAM, which included commissions from Kamrooz Aram and Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and works by Slavs and Tatars and Anila Quayyam Agha.
I maintain an extensive archive of images (15,000+) on Flickr, which I have uploaded under a Creative Commons 2.0 license so that anyone can use them with proper credits and links.
