February is coming to a close. Catch "By The People: Designing A Better America,” as part of a series of Cooper Hewitt exhibitions at the Smithsonian Museum, New York City. The exhibition aims to examine how design is challenging social and economic inequality across America. Included in the exhibition is the work of Creative Capital grantee, Fallen Fruit. Details here: https://www.cooperhewitt.org/channel/by-the-people/ (pictured) Ticket sales to Yance Ford’s Strong Island will be available on March 2nd at Film Society of Lincoln Center. Ford’s project will have its premiere on March 19th as part of the New Directors/New Films 2017. Details here: http://www.newdirectors.org/2017/films/strong-island On March 1st Jen Bervin’s exhibition at MASS MoCA will come down. “Silk Poems” premiered last May in an exhibition with the work of 23 international artists. MASS MoCA curator Denise Markonish remarked, “the state of wonder agitates, mesmerizes, and is almost forcible and shocking. It is a sudden intake of breath, a gaping mouth, a relinquishing of understanding.” As commonly used, “wonder” is sometimes mistaken for curiosity, which centers on the practice of fact-finding and explanation. In ‘Explode Every Day: An Inquiry into the Phenomena of Wonder,’ viewers are invited to experience a purer state of wonder, a liminal state of being poised between knowing and not knowing, and defined by an experience of something truly new. Details here: http://jenbervin.com/projects/silk-poems Creative Capital artist and filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson’s exhibition at the Bridget Donahue Gallery will come down on March 2nd. Don’t miss this investigation on the issues of identity, gender-roles, the double bind of voyeurism and surveillance, and what it means to be human in an increasingly cyber world and an era of bio- and genetic engineering. The exhibition features a broad selection of the artist’s pioneering interactive media works and videos from the 70s to the present, most of them never before shown in New York City! Details here: https://www.bridgetdonahue.nyc/ Gina Reichert and Mitch Cope’s Creative Capital Project at will be at the David Klein Gallery until March 11th. “Organizational Strategies for the After Life” is a collaborative project by Gina Reichert and Mitch Cope, the husband and wife team formerly known as Design 99. Reichert and Cope have been working in their Detroit neighborhood for six years, collecting a warehouse full of objects left behind by former neighbors and their predecessors. With the assistance of several spirit beings, such as the Mischievous Cleaners, the Kitchen Dwellers and the Vacationers, the artists have processed and transformed the found objects into a series of sculptures, videos, drawings and paintings.

DIMORE| PUBLIC ART RESIDENCY in Venice | OPEN CALL

Shaun Leonardo is working with Recess to teach minors who have committed a misdemeanor how to perform the stories of their lives and about artistic process. After, prosecutors will have the option to close and seal the young people’s cases.
Artist Shaun Leonardo is teaching a "diversion program" that can send young people in trouble to art classes rather than to jail.

"What are some common pitfall artists fall into when they try to communicate their desires or needs in a professional setting? Kirby: I have a whole list! They try to sound impressive, apologize, both explicitly and implicitly, overshare and over-explain, use “artspeak” to sound erudite, and name drop." Join artist leader and verbal communications coach Kirby Tepper on 2/27 for our webinar "Effective Negotiation for Artists", and prevent making these common mistakes in your negotiations.

Kirby Tepper will lead our upcoming "Verbal Communications for Artists" webinar. We asked him about the do's and don'ts of artist communication.

"When Barack Obama first got elected as president of the United States part of my tears that came had to do with joy. That was like, 15%. And then 85% was shame because I didn’t think it was going to happen at all... That’s dangerous because that has to do with my imagination. That is something I can nurture. In spite of anything else that might be happening in our world, I can imagine things. And especially as an artist, you have to nurture that muscle." We spoke to Kenya (Robinson) about using imagination to rethink privilege. She's premiering "Karaoke Universal" as part of a six-week course premiering at Pioneer Works Feb 21.
If Kenya (Robinson) has a superpower, it would be to say more in the span of a minute than most people say in an hour. Recently, her podcast collaborative art work with artist Doreen Garner,
