2018, 2020

Founded in Los Angeles and New York in 2017, Arts Research Collective (ARC) offered classes, workshops, and events throughout the United States and online. ARC had two iterations:

In summer 2018 it ran as a small, in person program in Los Angeles to support artists making research-based, non-market driven work.  Summer 2018 was lead by Trista Malllory, Aliza Shvartz and myself, and included visits and presentations from artists, writers, scholars and curators.

In summer 2020, ARC was a large, online program that operated as a collaboration with the Rational Dress Society. We offered two online courses that merged sewing, design and pattern making instruction with marxist, feminist and postcolonial theory, a course of study we called Radical Vocational Training. The program was largely run by Abigail Glaum-Lathbury, Cameron Crawford and myself, with assistance from Alliza Shvarts. We had over 300 participants in each class, who joined from alll over the world.
