Welcome Back Chris!

Past AIR & Critic Chris Bors stopped by this Monday to share his thoughts on the Winter 2017 Residents current work!

Chris Bors is a New York-based artist whose graphic, post-pop, conceptual works feature a mash-up of images, in which any visuals are fair game for repurposing. His recent paintings, which appropriate logos from hardcore punk bands, are meticulously painted to resemble silkscreen prints, political advertising, or t-shirt graphics. He coined the term "virtual dumpster diving" to describe the practice of taking images and videos from the web. Bors was born in Ithaca, New York and received his MFA from School of Visual Arts. Solo shows include Randall Scott Projects in Washington, D.C. His art has also been exhibited at PS1 MoMA, White Columns, the Bronx Museum of the Arts and Kinz + Tillou Fine Art in New York, Casino Luxembourg in Luxembourg, Bahnwarterhaus in Esslingen, Germany and Bongout in Berlin. His work has been reviewed in the New York Times, Time Out New York, the Brooklyn Rail and featured in Vogue Italia, K48 and zingmagazine. He has written for Artforum.com, ArtReview, and Art in America, among many other publications.

Park Wonder Goes to Press!!

Artist Matthew Jensen, Curator Mary Birmingham and Book Designer Matt Barteluce visited GHP Media today for an in-person Press Check for Park Wonder.  It's been a long road (or fast highway) for all of us but the longest for Matthew J. who began this journey many months ago when he first stepped into the four historic national parks of New Jersey documented in the book.

Read more about his upcoming interactive exhibition at VACNJ here which was supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.  Many thanks to Dan Bartlett and his team for guiding us through the book production.  Check out GHP Media here
