Asphodel, 20 Jay Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States

Your interior life is terrifying to American fascists. Words spoken in a language they can’t understand: Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Kurdish. “Sound American.” Abstraction, ideas, art itself: a threat. “My kid could do that.” The truth. “You lie.” Whispered pillow talk. “Alexa is listening.” At the height of a very hot summer, shadows grow ever longer. What remains of the public sphere has been willfully surrendered to electronic wights masquerading as citizens. Discourse is limited to furious invective thumbed on virtual…

On January 10, 2017, CODEPINK activist Desiree Fairooz was arrested and later convicted for laughing during Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s Senate confirmation hearing. As Senator Richard Shelby commended Sessions for his record of “treating all Americans equally under the law,” Fairooz let out a quick, sharp cackle before being escorted from the courtroom and arrested for “disorderly and disruptive” behavior. Fairooz’s reflexive outburst is just one scenario conveying the transgressive potential of laughter to threaten authority, as power and control…

A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce Decadent Illusions, an exhibition of collages and drawings from three Michigan-based artists, d’Ann de Simone, Kristen Franyutti and Elyse Gambino. The works reflect the deceptively lush and placid surface of contemporary consumer culture, while showing that just below surface lies an abyss of turmoil and decay. With all the works placed next to each other, the viewer is met with vibrant color, sumptuous beauty, and a hint of chaos. The tightly packed compositions quickly…

More than 2.7 million children in the United States have an incarcerated parent on any given day, yet these children are largely invisible due to the stigma that families experience when they share that a loved one is incarcerated. As a result, many families do not speak about incarceration and do not receive the support that would help them succeed and thrive. Most children want and need to visit with their incarcerated parents and incarcerated mothers want opportunities to parent…
