We have a few events coming up this fall. Will post here as soon as they are confirmed. You can join our Facebook fan page to stay in touch.
I am giving an artist talk tonight at the Clay Center for Art and Sciences in West Virginia. Pretty cool place in Charleston, WV. Well it’s 90 degrees but you know what I mean.

Photographer of 365 EPA Superfund Sites to Speak at the Historic Thomas Center
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The City of Gainesville Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs announces a lecture by New York media artist Brooke Singer on Friday March 30 at 6 p.m. in the Thomas Center Long Gallery. Recognized for her work photographing 365 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Superfund sites from outside New York City to Hawaii, Singer will speak on Alternative Histories: Mapping Toxic Legacy and Tracking Superfund.
This program accompanies the Thomas Center Main Gallery’s powerful current exhibition Region4: Transformation Through Imagination, which features works by 17 artists who seek to transform the reality of the local Cabot/Koppers EPA Superfund site into images that convey both the history of the issue and the possibilities for restoration and positive change. The exhibition was organized by the Superfund Art Project in collaboration with Protect Gainesville Citizens and runs through Saturday, April 28. Along with related programming, it is funded by a grant from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs (DCA) and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
Brooke Singer is currently Associate Professor of New Media at Purchase College, State University of New York. Her work blurs the borders between science, technology, politics and arts practices. She has exhibited at the Warhol Museum of Art, The Banff Centre, Neuberger Museum of Art, MoMA/PS1, Diverseworks, Exit Art, FILE Electronic Festival, Sonar Music and Multimedia Festival, The Whitney Artport, among others.

I am very excited to be part of this book, “Beautiful Trouble.” It arrives in February. Order your advanced copy today! Here is some more info:
From Cairo to cyberspace, from Main Street to Wall Street, today’s social movements have a creative new edge that’s blurring the boundaries between artist and activist, hacker and dreamer. But the principles that make for successful creative action rarely get hashed out or written down. Until now.
Beautiful Trouble brings together ten grassroots groups and dozens of seasoned artists and activists from around the world to distill their best practices into a toolbox for creative action.
Beautiful Trouble puts the accumulated wisdom of decades of creative protest into the hands of the next generation of change-makers.
Browsing through the bookstore at the Museo Reina Sofia, look what I found! An Atlas for Radical Cartography was nestled in between an old postcard book and a book about urbanism. An Atlas has had a great run (I have a map included in the collection).
We are working on the web site for the project Excedents/Excess. In the meanwhile, I will post images from our install at Matadero.
