Attempt to Catch a Coyote, ink on paper, 2013
On Monday, May 13th is Artadia's UNRESTRICTED benefit at Eventi Hotel in Chelsea starting at 6:30 PM. Artadia is an amazing organization that awards unrestricted grants to artists in 5 US cities: Boston, Atlanta, San Francisco, Chicago and Houston. I received an Artadia grant in Chicago in 2006. I was commissioned to make an artwork to be screened at UNRESTRICTED--and that piece is How to Break a Coconut, a video done in collaboration with Trish Tillman. Buy a ticket to enjoy the party and see How to Break a Coconut! You can also see commissioned works by Serena Lin Bush and the Center for Tactical Magic.
