Jarrod Beck (M.F.A. in Studio Art, 2007) combined text, collaborative performances, and a site-specific installation in his latest exhibition at Smack Mellon in New York titled The Moon. For the duration of the exhibition, a 60-foot-diameter, handmade paper moon will hover over the gallery floor and reach upward into the coal trough ceiling infrastructure.
The Moon began as an epic poem, begun in the summer of 2014. Themes include environmental devastation, the AIDS epidemic, and queer collectivist anarchism.
Initial reviews for The Moon can be read at The Brooklyn Paper.
