Artists, in recent years, have pioneered forms of interactive, environmental, and database art that document socio-political, cultural, and natural phenomena that were once the purview of the film and video documentary. While film and video had the ability to collect, record, narrate, and argue about the historical world, expanded documentarians utilize the full palette of digital media in order to engage audiences, participants, and users in the production, archiving, and mapping of the real. Interactive and multimedia works implicate spectators in the production of information and arguments about the world, foregrounding the public nature of the construction of knowledge.
Panels will be moderated by artists and scholars with active participation and discussion by all attendees.

ExcessNYC participated in Art Walk Stamford yesterday. We have a storefront where our bike and some new posters are on display at 69 Broad Street in the center of Downtown.
We rescued a lot of food from the farmers market and local restaurants. And then we had a picnic at Franklin Street Works Gallery. It was a beautiful early summer day!

GALLERY HOURS: Wednesday–Friday, 3pm–6:30pm / Saturday, 12pm–5pm FREE ADMISSION
Bronx, NY, May, 2013 —Bronx River Art Center (BRAC) is proud to announce Process and Progress: Brooke Singer, SLO Architecture, New York City Department of City Planning, 596 Acres and BRAC’s Teen Project Studio. This is the fifth and final exhibition in the series Process and Progress: Engaging in Community Change. Over the last eight months, this series has provided a framework for artists, architects, community organizations and neighbors to engage with systems of urban development in the Bronx and beyond. This exhibition will be presented in BRAC’s temporary gallery space in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the Bronx.
Process and Progress: Engaging in Community Change is an interdisciplinary exhibition series that highlights the Bronx River Art Center’s development during a time of significant structural and cultural change in the borough. BRAC’s major building renovation project, now underway, is leading the way for more environmentally sustainable and technologically advanced designs within the West Farms community.
Process and Progress 5: Brooke Singer, SLO Architecture, NYC Department of City Planning, 596 Acres and BRAC’s Teen Project Studio highlights strategies employed by architects, artists, urban planners, neighborhood activists, and local youth to articulate and improve the environmental and infrastructure challenges that face our South Bronx community. This exhibition expands the traditional notions of what an “art exhibition space” is by incorporating a diverse group of voices to enhance and enrich complex conversations about the role of art, community organizing, and urban planning within our borough and beyond.
In her online data visualization project Superfund365 and photo documentary series Sites Unseen, artist Brooke Singer maps toxic contamination sites throughout the country. These projects trace the development and confluence of industry, economy, ecology, land use, and environmental health over time, creating an alternative reading of the history of the United States.

Artistic Research Science Fair
D. Graham Burnett, Sal Randolph, Steve Rowell, Brooke Singer, and Alexandra P. Spaudling
Thursday, April 18, 2013, 12:30–2:00 p.m.
Education Classroom B, mezzanine, The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, Museum of Modern Art, New York
The included projects are long-term, multifaceted endeavors that are rarely represented in traditional venues such as museums or galleries, making this session a unique opportunity to learn about them through a direct dialogue with their creators. The program concludes with a round-table conversation among the artists, moderated by D. Graham Burnett, focusing on such questions as: Can science and scholarship be the medium of the artist? What can be learned from the contrast between the creatively driven approach of artistic research and the focused methodology of empirically oriented investigative practices? What happens at the intersection of precise knowledge and infinite possibility? D. Graham Burnett is an editor at Cabinet magazine and teaches at Princeton University.
Ricardo and I have a project in the new exhibition, Strange Invitation, at the amazing Franklin Street Works Gallery in Stamford, CT. Opening is this SAT 5-8pm.
My photograph Quanta Resources, Pittston, PA, from the Sites Unseen series is included in the exhibition Gatsby Revisited in the Age of the One Percent from March 13 – April 15 at the Contemporary Art Gallery on the campus of UConn, Storrs.
Other artists are: Tina Barney, Man Bartlett, James Casebere, Jessica Craig-Martin, Patricia Cronin, Sebastan Errazuriz, Shepard Fairey, Eric Fischl, Charles Hagen, Alex Katz, Robert Longo, Julian Opie Martin Parr, Julika Rudelius and Elizabeth Shrier.
Closing reception on April 15th!
ExcessNYC (Ricardo and I!) will participate in this panel on March 30th. Looking forward, the panelists look great.
With Food in Mind is thrilled to participate in the 2013 Just Food Conference. In our conference session, artists will offer practical advice on using food as medium or material when working to foster social change.

There is an interesting essay, The Migration of Social Exchange, recently posted on Hyperallergic by James Holland. He mentions my Databody piece from spring 2001 (yes, prior to 9/11). Nice that it is still relevant after over a decade. This is a thoughtful piece that ruminates on the changing landscape of what it means to be social.
