More about Vox Populi Gallery
As a member of Vox—an artist-run gallery and project space—participate in the collective functions of the space and membership, from active roles in program development, fundraising, and operations of Blackbox and Community Engagement Committee programs, member and guest artist application reviews, organizational strategy, and cultural principles development to regular gallery sitting, event set-up and support, and on-the-ground facilities work. Beyond operational roles, take curatorial role in gallery exhibitions and public programs, including: co-curation with Danny Orendorff of participatory and environmentally-focused public project-in-development Haunted by Imagined Futures, slated for 2021 production; event design collaboration and hands-on project planning for Maximum Tilt: Solstice Festival, Jun 21, 2018 to kick off Vox’s 30th anniversary year programming arc; and curation of Aislinn Pentecost-Farren and Corey Chao’s American Immigrants project for the exhibition X + 1_Vox Accelerated, Feb 2-18, 2018.

Becoming / Collective
Vox Populi’s 2017 New Member’s cohort each examine the body through various lenses—its ecological, socio-political, and animal imbrications—in the group exhibition WE ARE THE FRUITING BODY. We are enmeshed in these concerns and in each other, separated and joined by our ways of seeing; a manifold unit.

A collective exhibition kicked off by a single artwork selected for response by members, who in turn select artworks in a process akin to internet surfing where one connection leads to the next. The fast and open procedure reflects some aspects of creative practice and artistic networks.
For this exhibition I selected the work of Aislinn Pentecost-Farren and Corey Chao, American Immigrants, a series of photos and stories about US citizens who have moved to Mexico.
More about the project can be found on the American Immigrants project page.
