galleria-ari: Cameron Rowland, Loot, 2014. Copper fittings and bag; 18.5 × 17 × 15 in (46.99 × 43.18 × 38.10 cm). Rental. At some point basic utilities like electricity and water were services controlled by the state, because they relied so heavily on public infrastructure. More and more these flows are valved by private corporations. Someone sold these usable copper fittings in this bag to a scrap yard. They were bought back in the same bag. Copper has a function, its base material has an in...

When French colonial forces pulled out of Guinea following its declaration of independence in 1958, they notoriously even took the lightbulbs. Rebuilding was the first focus of the West African nation, and that included the strengthening of its cultural identity. Under the leadership of music lover President Ahmed Sékou Touré, the government was soon sending out guitars, saxophones, and brass instruments to 35 state-funded prefecture orchestras as part of a new authenicité policy. This directive...

MEXICO CITY — At first glance, the room seems innocuous. There is a desk with a wallet, a purse, and some empty bottles, an army-green shirt on a hanger, some shelves, and a few chairs. Upon looking more closely, however, one sees disquieting things: disembodied fingers and ears, scalpels, bullets, a fist making a Black Power salute, a map of Mexico drawn in bright red with a black number one superimposed over it. A chair sits beneath an exposed electrical outlet from which two sinister wires da...

superheroesincolor: Counting Descent (2016) “Clint Smith’s debut poetry collection, Counting Descent, is a coming of age story that seeks to complicate our conception of lineage and tradition. Smith explores the cognitive dissonance that results from belonging to a community that unapologetically celebrates black humanity while living in a world that often renders blackness a caricature of fear.  His poems move fluidly across personal and political histories, all the while reflecting on the s...

Kenny RiveroChild on Sidewalk, 201412 x 12 inches, oil on canvas My hope with the images I create is to provide the viewer, including myself, with an intimate space in which to reflect on hope, loss, and memory. These  ideas and their relationship to one another are familiar to many of us, though through my practice I address these links through coded gestures based both in fiction and actuality.
