Unrequited Leisure

An extension of my art practice is curating exhibitions with my collaborator, Clint Sleeper for Unrequited Leisure, an artist-run space that we founded in Nashville, TN. Exhibitions in the gallery are programmed and organized by us and by guest curators that we invite to work in the space. The artworks presented both in the gallery, online, or in satellite spaces are selected through a thematic curatorial framework. Our focus is on emerging and mid-career artists that explore screen-based approaches to critical and topical investigations and we have traveled select shows to both national and international art spaces.
