    “Curtain Wall House,” where I expand the concept of the curtain painting to incorporate domestic architecture — a three-dimensional painting as home. For this work, I have created schematics for a two-story, four-bedroom house. The “curtain wall” of the house is graphic wrap on glass, viewable inside and out.  
See it at Art Romp opening this Friday, August 23 at the Anacostia Art Center in DC.

    Reblogged from kateoplis

    More girls have been killed in the last FIFTY years, precisely because they were girls, than men were killed in ALL the battles of the 20th century.

    More girls are killed in this routine gendercide in any ONE decade, than people were slaughtered in ALL the genocides of the 20th century.

    Dafna Steinberg in performance last night at Doris-Mae in DC — we all stood in dead silence and stared as she ate her dinner, alone — a Five Guys burger and fries.
"In the project space, Dafna Steinberg turns her attention to the mid- to late-century representation of the woman as home-maker as seen in cookbooks, diet books and magazines of the era. In this world, expectations of the feminine were set against a crowded background of table scapes and impeccable wardrobes. Dafna examines the far-reaching effects of this type of presentation on contemporary women, openly examining her own relationship to food and her body.
Join us at doris-mae Saturday, April 20 from 6-8pm, for the opening reception of this exhibition. An eating performance by Dafna Steinberg will begin shortly after 7:00pm in the project space.”
