Pamela Council featured in BOMB Magazine: BLACK PHENOMENA: On Afropessimism & Camp

Camp is commonly seen as the love of irony and artifice, a theatrical devotion to what the mainstream considers ugly and/or garish and gaudy. But in its original and Blackest manifestation, Camp is a way of looking, one that shifts whose gaze has power as well as who can be at the center of the political project we call beauty.

Sheida Soleimani interviewed for BOMB Magazine: “Critique and Care: Sheida Soleimani Interviewed by Cassie Packard”

As Soleimani’s work looks outward at the global petroleum industry or political corruption in the United States and Iran, it also encourages viewers to turn inward, confronting the assumptions and blind spots that they bring to her images. I spoke with Soleimani about putting evaders of justice in the aesthetic hot seat, making activist art outside of the sentimentalizing traditions of the genre, and rehabilitating wild birds.

Amanda Valdez featured in Artsy: “6 Rising Contemporary Artists Using Traditional Craft Techniques”

“Textiles are so deeply ingrained into our culture, history, homes, and bodies.
