Editorial Assistant: Rose Harding was born and raised in Indianapolis, IN and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Indiana University. In her work she attempts to reconcile disillusionment with the physical body as a result of living in a patriarchal society and does so through video, found object sculpture, and poetic gesture. Additionally, she explores agitation of normalcy through collaborative curating and alternative space making.
In BALTIMORE: POST-OFFICE ARTS JOURNAL is a platform for critically engaged response to exhibitions in Baltimore’s alternative arts spaces, as well as a publication ground for theory essays that might not fit anywhere else.
In DALLAS: A concise means to access contemporary art, Eutopia invites submissions of under 100 words to comment on works or exhibits. True to it’s name this notion is a naive gesture, elitist and immensely flawed, while it also strives to broadcast the pursuit of an ideal.
In KANSAS CITY: PLUG PROJECTS is a curatorial collaboration by five Kansas City artists who share the mission of bringing fresh perspectives and conversation to the local art community. Our goal is to energize artists and the public at large by exhibiting challenging new work, initiating critical dialogue, and expanding connections of artists in Kansas City as part of a wider, national network of artists.
