Two of my collaborative photo/sculpture projects from the 1980s have recently been exhibited and/or published. "Fortifications," done with Dan Loewenstein in 1985, is a set of four mimetic light boxes with photographic transparencies. "Life Imitates Art," done with Harold Olejarz from 1985 to 1991, is a set of photographic representations of sculptural performances, including a self-installation at the Whitney Biennial in 1985. See Sculpture Collaborations.
Architecture of Speed/Rationale of the Streamline
This exhibition first opened at the Arsenale Institute in Venice in December 2021 and then opened in expanded form at the Kunsthaus Dahlem in Berlin in May 2023. Based on the visionary designer Paul Jaray, it was organized by Wolfgang Scheppe and contained objects, documents and photographs by twenty artists, including my 1974 series on the Ant Farm's public sculptural installation "Cadillac Ranch."

How the Government-Funded CETA Program
Put Artists to Work
This was a two-venue show in NYC's Lower East Side, at City Lore and Cuchifritos Galleries, December 2021 - March 2022. It was dedicated to the history of the CETA CCF Artists Project in NYC, 1978-80. More than fifty photos from my work on the project's documentation unit were included either in print or projected form. This project was the largest single federally-funded source of employment for artists since the WPA. Exhibition Catalog. Some of these photos can be seen on this site at the CCF CETA page. More on the national CETA Arts projects that employed 20,000 artists and arts workers can be seen at CETA-ARTS.COM.
