I will be speaking at Cornell tonight. 5:15 in Milstein Auditorium. Since it is Halloween, I will be wearing the below — first appearance of my gingham lab coat I have been dreaming of for several years now.
We have just bagged some really great smelling compost for Artshop!, Franklin Street Works’ popup shop to celebrate its 2nd year anniversary. This is our summer compost that has been curing in our Crown Heights lot for several weeks & recently got a shot of inoculum from Rodale Institute.
I am co-organizing this exhibition and symposium at SUNY Purchase’s The Passage Gallery this Wed, September 11th. Visit before 9/30 if you can! If not, check out the Collective Action Archive reader.
Currently I am an artist in resident at HIAP for the summer. This city is amazing and I am happily recharging, planning several events for the Fall back in the States and enjoying the 19+ hours of daylight!

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!

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.
