New York, NY

I make work in the mediums of live performance, text, time-based digital work and what gets called social practice. I have been creating work about cities, gentrification, identity, trauma and reckoning for a while now. Current work includes: Perfect City - a 20-year art and advocacy working group based in my neighborhood of the Lower East Side, housed at Abrons Arts Center; Language Reversal - a collaboration with artists Ogemdi Ude, Clarinda Mac Low and collaborators in Serbia, Russia and Australia; Citizen School - a curriculum based around my 2012-14 performance work City Council Meeting, created with Mallory Catlett in five US cities (soon to be a Major University Press Book!).
