The Front Collective - Three Group Exhibitions

This January I had work in three group shows with The Front. The first, "Carry On", was a two part exhibition in Mexico city. This show was part of an exchange we did with Feral, a Mexico City based collective who came to New Orleans to do a show at The Front last July.

The first part, where Front members showed individual works, was held at Galeria Breve in the Centro Histórico from January 7th-23rd.

The second part was at Galeria Feral from January 9th-28th. In this show, we each created an 11x17" work on paper representing our interpretation of an altar. We also projected a group video project where we walked in a processional of costumes along the Levee in New Orleans.

The third show was a new and old member show at the Front from January 9th-February 7th. 
SHIFTCHANGE featured the work of our talented new members; Kevin Baer, Vanessa Centeno, Patrick Coll, Kelly Mueller, Cynthia Scott, Patch Somerville and Madeine Wieand,
as well as our returning old members; Lee Deigaard, Imen Djouini, John Isiah Walton, Cristina Molina, Brooke Pickett, Alex Podesta, Claire Rau, Jamie Solock, Jonathan Traviesa, Jessie Vogel, Ryn Wilson
I had a two channel video on display, which is the beginning of a larger project I will exhibit this August. The work investigates witch hunts, past and present. In this piece I take devices used against the "witches", rotten eggs and fire, and put them into the hands of the accused.
