In November of 2009, I worked with curator Tara de la Garza on No Longer Empty’s exhibition entitled “Re-Purpose”.
Mounted in an empty storefront space in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the exhibition examined the notion of repurposing objects, ideas and images.
Tracey Moffatt‘s video collage, Doomed, featured depictions of doom and destruction comprised through the editing of found footage into a highly entertaining and black-humorous take on the collective fear that we have had since biblical times of impending disaster.
Janet Nolan makes sculptures from repeated singular objects recycled from the everyday world, such as the hundreds of broken umbrellas that she installed in the exhibition space.
Corinne Kamiya‘s performative piece dealt with the desire to recreate some of the generosity of her native Hawaiian culture in an effort to cope with the different culture of New York City.
