Christian Petzold interview in the Brooklyn Rail




I’m beyond thrilled to have a long interview with the amazing filmmaker #ChristianPetzold in the March issue of The Brooklyn Rail. What a generous human and mind. In which we talk about linguistic mishaps, exile as a weapon, the social space of cars and more.

It's been awhile since I've updated here; and awhile since I've posted anything about the #DrawingsforDonald. But there's a brand new one just published in Hyperallergic this past week with a new piece of writing of mine about a very poignant situation.

Some more big news: the complete project (all 365 days) is now on view at the wonderful Salina Art Center in Salina, KS (a very special place). And to top that all off, Print the Future Press in Amsterdam will be a mammoth artist book project of mine in the next couple of months with the complete drawings and other visual matter.

Check out the piece in Hyperallergic--in which I talk about teaching color theory, some issues of race, white privilege and conservative victimhood. Here's a link to it.

Lots of other happenings and exciting changes afoot. Some dispatches from this year's Berlinale coming soon, other writing projects, performances in Zimbabwe in May 2018 as The Afield, big life shifts et al. 



#2017 was an incredible and bizarre year. I traveled to 8 countries. I went to #LA and #joshuatree where I feel like half my heart is. I made a #drawingaday for @realdonaldtrump. I had an amazing group of collaborators and supporters help realize projects in #albaquerque #wichita #zimbabwe #nebraska #nyc and more. I wrote a lot on art and through art for @hyperallergic and @brooklynrail and got to share some incredible things I saw. I turned 40. @rebeccafischerviolin and performed all over as @intheafield. 2018 will be a year of big big changes and news for us and I could not be more excited. Thanks @centralfeaturescontemporaryart @ventureroom @officialhifa @fiendish_plots @nationalsawdust @harvesterarts and all the others for support. I am beyond grateful 🙏. More to come. #art #contemporaryart #contemporaryphoto #interdisciplinary #performance #video #photo #drawingsfordonald


A few images from our performance as The Afield at Harare International Festival of the Arts in Zimbabwe this past week. What an incredible time! Amazing people, amazing and enormous festival. Amazing everything. We made a new intro for this we're pretty excited about too

Drawings for Donald in Hyperallergic

As some of you know I launched a project called "Drawings for Donald" on January 20, 2017--a drawing a day everyday for 365 days for Donald. Last weekend I was very excited the project (along with a statement of mine) was featured in Hyperallergic's great new weekend column "Drawing in the Time of Fear and Lies". I'm pretty excited to share this. Check out my drawings and my piece here and follow more drawings on Instagram and elsewhere


Strange encounters

We here at artiswaydifferent have been busily chipping away at a new video/photo installation and project we're very excited about. Super 8, collage, medium format photo, Polaroids and lots of other exciting things entering into the weird world of this. Some old friends figure prominently into this--familiar faces you'll recognize. But we're also working with the wonderful Brittany Coudriet, one of the main actresses for the video. Here she is pictured with a strange figure she meets along the way. We can't wait to tell you more soon. #video #installation #newshoot #contemporaryart
