In 2017, The Aldrich will be exhibiting the work of artist and critic William Powhida as one of the forthcoming #UndisclosedFacts exhibitions. Recently, Exhibitions Director Richard Klein did a studio visit with Mr. Powhida and snapped this photo of him with one of his latest pieces. We're looking forward to examining "Contemporary Art" next year with you, @powhida! .

"In the coming years, if Donald Trump manages to evade impeachment, there will be no shortage of political cartoons and protest art taking aim at his policies and personnel; DRAWING IN A TIME OF FEAR & LIES proposes to be something different: an arena of metaphor, texture, reflection, even ambiguity, but fueled by the same moral outrage that drives the protests in the streets." #WilliamPowhida, “Various Dismal Futures” (detail) (2016), graphite on paper mounted on archival foamcore, 23 1/4 x 16 1/2 inches (courtesy the artist and Charlie James Gallery)

Jennifer Dalton, Williamsburg, Brooklyn artist and co-founder of Auxiliary Projects talks about:
Her Williamsburg neighborhood from numerous perspectives, including a breakdown of some of its sections, the re-zoning that has enabled high-rise development and exceptionally high-priced real estate, the fact that she's been there 20 years, and owning a row house w/her husband since 2003, to where artists are moving-whether out of Brooklyn or out of New York altogether; the project Month2Month, which she co-organized w/William Powhida and was a lottery-based 'guest living' arrangement in which people temporarily lived in housing deemed either 'affordable' or 'luxury,' how by co-running a progressive gallery in Greenpoint, she's both part of the solution and part of the problem simultaneously as a culture provider and gentrifier; the 'smoke & mirrors' element of living in NYC: people living beyond their means in the process; how she's continued to keep a day job over her career, even though there have been periods of a few years where she could have made a living from her work; how she'd rather be a "day job artist" than a "housewife artist;" art fairs, and how she (and we) can alternate between feeling alienated and inspired walking around one, which inspired her "Hello, I'm" piece, stickers with various comments about one's art fair state that Chicago Expo goers wore in great numbers in 2015; how in the moment, art fair presenters always say it's going great, and only admit to it going badly the next year; how the one year she and her partner Jennifer McCoy did Untitled at Miami, they broke even, which is great for a young gallery, but if you count time invested they figured they made 12 cents an hour; "elitism" in its various forms, an exchange inspired one of her images; the 'confidence' game, in terms of selling yourself in studio visits, and how in Jen's experience men are more confident in women in those situations; and we have a spirited debate/concurrence about the use of sales-y words in the studio and in relation to one's art, and because she refrained from using it, we talk about the "P" word at great length, and why she likes it (and I don't).

I received my artist copy of The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life! The book features a collection of essays by 40 visual artists. Edited by artist and educator, @SharonLouden, the book describes how artists extend their practices outside of their studios as culture producers contributing to the well-being of others and their communities. Now available for pre-order at amazon! Thank you so much, Sharon, for inviting me to be part of it. The book is fantastic!!!

“With a racist real-estate mogul as our new commander-in-chief, it’s clear that the politics of gentrification are at the center of national politics,” Dushko Petrovich explains in the editorial letter from his forthcoming publication, The Daily Gentrifier.

I have been a fan of #williampowhida for a long time. Loved this piece at @pulseartfair I am so happy years ago at the affordable art fair I got one of his #reasonstobuyart prints from @jenbeckmann projects. #cheers #artcollecting #criticism
