I am looking forward to being in residence for six weeks this summer at the Oberpfalzer Kunstlerhaus in Schwandorf, Germany. The Kebbel Villa houses the administrative offices and a contemporary art museum.
I will be in residence at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in October/November 2018.
“A Selective Guide to Sports in Experimental Media.” By Astria Suparak and Brett Kashmere.
The “Selective Guide” section of INCITE Journal of Experimental Media‘s newest issue, Sports, is a practical resource for educators, scholars, curators, historians, and librarians, which aims to give a cross-sectional overview of the various ways that sports have been treated in artists’ film and video, experimental documentary, and media-based installation throughout history. The works are arranged alphabetically by sport and by year, and include title, maker, year, medium, duration, and a short description.
INCITE Journal: Sports is a 344-page, full color double-issue (#7/8). The journal is collected by museums, film organizations, and libraries across North America, including the Museum of Modern Art Library, Yale University, University of Chicago, Anthology Film Archives, CalArts, and the Library of Congress.
Many of you know me as an artist who often uses sports as metaphor and the athlete as subject in my work. I sometimes write about sports, too, especially figure skating, in casual emails with friends. I’ve decided to take advantage of the Pyeongchang Olympics to focus my writing and share my thoughts in a more focused way. If the topic piques your interest, feel free to check it out!

Llewellyn Hensley, RISD MFA Graphic Design 2017, interviewed me as part of her thesis book Content Aware: Investigating Tools, Character & User Behavior. Drawn together by our mutual interest in repetitive and interative strategies, our conversation touched on systems of organization, finding the sublime in the everyday, and the rapidly changing medium of photographic practice.

So pleased to have been asked to lecture on my work and participate in senior multidisciplinary capstone critiques at Smith College! If you’re in Northampton on November 4th, please stop by my talk and say hello!
Just back from a wonderful visit to Wayne State University. I gave a lecture on my research and practice, toured Detroit, met many wonderful students and faculty in the Art Department, and attended grad critiques. I was thrilled with the variety of work I saw and the support and respect the students had for one another.
I recently created a new page on my web site that features an archive of my painting and drawing projects. Check it out here!
