EJ Hauser with Phong H. Bui
On the occasion of EJs new exhibit, Voyagers, at Derek Eller Gallery (April 29May 29, 2021), I paid a visit to her Sunset Park studio for an in-depth conversation with the painter about her practice leading to this body of new paintings, and more.
Alex Hay with Amanda Gluibizzi
An artist with an eye resolutely toward possibility, Hay has been omnivorous, taking advantage of opportunities as theyve presented themselves, whether in terms of subject matter or medium. As Hay tells us, the genesis of my work is circumstances.
Ebecho Muslimova with Anna Tome
Ebecho Muslimova is a Russian-born, New York-based artist known for ever-evolving depictions of her illustrated character, Fatebe (Fah-tee-bee), who overflows with physicality and impropriety, free of the anxieties of a socially conscious being.
Federico Solmi with Dan Cameron
Solmis recurring subject is the knowing abuse of power, and he has a bleak and urgent message for us regarding this particularly agonizing moment in history: it has happened before, it will happen again, and there is very little within our power to stop it. Bucking convention, Solmi even sees it from the perspective of the aggressors, whose greatest wish is to wall themselves off from the rest of us, the better to enjoy the fruits of their plunder.
Peter Lamborn Wilson with Lucía Hinojosa, Diego Gerard, Raymond Foye, and Anne Waldman
We talked for hourssurrounded by his books and objectsabout language and its origins, about technology, US-Mexican politics, and primordial societies, themes we were pursuing in the translation of his texts.
