DISCUSSION

I am an artist & founded TACTICAL STREAM, a series of group exhibitions where artists resist the Trump presidency.

I have hosted/curated & exhibited in 3 TACTICAL STREAM exhibitions since Jan 2017. There have been 41 exhibiting artists including Tom Otterness, Heide Hatry, Alan Kaufman, Maria de LosAngeles, Gregg LeFevre, Ann Hanavan, Qinza Najm, Peter Missing, 13 performances including Penny Arcade, Felice Rosser, Chris Rael, Bina Sharif & 3 panels,13 panelists, mc’d by journalists Paul DeRienzo & Sarah Ferguson. My reason for producing this series of exhibitions & events is for participants, myself included, to develop an activist voice & work together in an empowered & experimental way toward making social change.

I am building an artist’s collective, TACTICAL STREAM "artists in action." Our first action, WATER WORLD is in less than 1 month, Sept 22at 2pm. TBG will exhibit the ephemera & video from our performance, including selected works from collective artists until September 30. As an artist the role of my space as gallery is to invite the viewer into further catharsis, re-direction & change. During October we will plan smaller happenings & begin planning for a big action in January 2018.

I have survived as a full time painter/performance artist by selling my own work for over 30 years. Since November 2016 I began to loose interest in “making a sale” and have become transfixed on “making a difference.” I am “called to action” living any other way feels like denial & complicity.

MISSION STATEMENT

“TACTICAL STREAM artists in action” - To unite & inspire people, honor women & the earth, mobilize the masses & attract global media.”

WATER WORLD

Violence & Freedom are similar, which is America built on and which does it promise & deliver? And If both, in what measure? Does violence fuel our idea of freedom? Competition & battle are human nature, it begins as inocent play & is subverted into the acceptance of violent oppression of people & the planet. “Inciting joy”, you can not be arrested for that. Joy & rebellion are contagious, bringing us to the awakening that not war, not love, but play between people grants us freedom, an intrinsic human trait that we must never forget.
