  What are you trying to communicate with your work? Most people are already aware of the negative effects marine debris has on animals and ecosystems. It’s easy to feel depressed when faced with plastic pollution statistics and easier still to feel disheartened when you realize how our daily consumption habits perpetuate resource wars and needless suffering around the planet. I don't, however, put our trash on display to remind viewers of how dire our situation is (though I do...

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? My ideas come from my interests in the urban, built environment. As I lived and traveled in different cities in China and the United States, I witnessed the continuous reshaping and renovation of these globalized urban landscapes. The elements of these constructed areas sometimes appear misplaced—ambiguous functions or anachronistic intentions emerge. As a result, the qualities of uncertainty, deficiency, inaccessibility, and... [more]

No, Donald Trump Is Not a Conceptual Artist. And Border Walls Are Not “Land Art”

by Andrea Alessi
I read the press release three times back to back, looking for any hint of irony. Or even confirmation of sincerity. I parsed the website, hoping an “about” page or mission statement could set my bearings. What exactly is MAGA, the “non-profit arts organization” petitioning the U.S. Government to designate the eight border wall prototypes erected outside of San Diego a national monument? The eight prototypes, constructed by six firms and built using $3.3 million in federal funds, were... [more]

Intimate Debris: Nature, Industry, and the Body in the Photography of LaToya Ruby Frazier

by Jessica Lanay
LaToya Ruby Frazier’s photography braids together the intimacies between landscape, industry, and the Black woman’s body. Impactful, private, and silver ensconced, her images reveal a sometimes wonderful and other times tragic interdependency. In two recent Pittsburgh exhibitions— at Silver Eye Center for Photography and On The Making Of Steel Genesis: Sandra Gould Ford at the August Wilson Center, a shared exhibition of photography by Frazier and Sandra Gould Ford—Frazier captures the...
