Talk Back @ Flux Factory
May 9 – Jun 2 all-day
Talk Back @ Flux Factory | New York | United States

TALK BACK centers the lives and leadership of disabled artists and organizers, asserting that deep-rooted cultural changes must be made within the art world to become more inclusive and accessible. TALK BACK believes that disability must be included in conversations about diversity. One part of affecting change in the art world is by placing disabled artists and organizers in positions of influence within the arts to effect change from within.

TALK BACK imagines a reality yet to exist, shifts able-normative assumptions to make room for every body and illuminates non-binary futures. TALK BACK envisions and celebrates joy, pleasure, mindbody, radical care and inclusion, sovereign bodies, crip time, community building, non-verbal and alternative forms of communication. TALK BACK disrupts through fluidity, quiet protest, overt and mass protest that includes multiple ways of showing up and being present. TALK BACK works within and against capitalism, classism and medical ableism to redefine value, time, productivity and worth. TALK BACK makes room for criticism, restoration liberation, coming out, ownership of one’s mind and body, access demands, intersectionality and utopias to offer multiple entry points to TALK BACK.

Kate Esme Ünver on The Book of Mini @ Book Culture LIC | New York | United States

Join Book Culture LIC on Friday, May 24th at 6:30pm as we welcome author Kate Esme Ünver and book photographer, John Saponara, who will be discussing the new release of their new book, The Book of Mini: Inside the Big World of Tiny Things. A small reception will follow the discussion.

Embrace the not-so-small world of minis–and your own tiny book!

From teeny burgers and minuscule handbags to furniture no larger than a quarter, this mind-blowing collection of squeal-worthy miniatures features more than 250 of the tiniest creations from all over the world. John and Kate collaborated to showcase the smallest of the small with readily recognizable objects–the result was a series of stunning photographs, blown up 10x larger to blow you away.

Kate Ünver, a lifelong collector of nearly 1,000 items, has curated unique and extraordinary miniatures on her Instagram account, @dailymini, since 2012. In The Book of Mini, she selects hundreds of pieces of artwork–many of which have never been seen before–and organizes them into sections on tiny food, diminutive wildlife, petite pottery, and more. Also included are interviews with collectors and artists exploring their methods, influences, and how they came to adore everything mini.

Featuring hundreds of photographs and a collectible miniature book, The Book of Mini is a must-have book for the tiny lover in your life.

Mundos Alternos: Art and Science Fiction in the Americas @ Queens Museum
Aug 18 all-day
Mundos Alternos: Art and Science Fiction in the Americas @ Queens Museum | New York | United States

Mundos Alternos: Art and Science Fiction in the Americas brings together contemporary artists from across the Americas who have tapped into science fiction’s capacity to imagine new realities, both utopian and dystopian. Science fiction offers a unique artistic landscape in which to explore the colonial enterprise that shaped the Americas and to present alternative perspectives speculating on the past and the future. In the works featured in the exhibition, most created in the last two decades, artists employ the imagery of science fiction to suggest diverse modes of existence and represent “alienating” ways of being in the world. The exhibition offers a groundbreaking account of the intersections among science fiction, techno-culture, and the visual arts.
