Commission for Treasonous Strategies Opening

Commission for Treasonous Strategies is a collaborative exhibit between myself and Tesar Freeman, a presentation of sculptural work which reflects upon the history of the United States and raises questions about the perceived authority of objects and relics when housed in sanctioned museums. We hope to echo something of an alternative history museum within our temporary space.

Tesar and I share a deep passion/rampant nerdiness for U.S. history and a fascination with museums and memorial practices. Commission for Treasonous Strategies is our first effort at incorporating our shared ideas under one roof. We have been keeping a scrolling blog of in-progress images and tangential research/thoughts as we go, which you can browse at

Hopefully you can join us for the opening this Friday evening, 6-9pm, but, if not, the exhibit is up through August 19 during regular hours (see below). I will do a follow-up post in a couple of weeks with photos once the exhibition is up.

Where: 707 Penn Avenue, downtown Pittsburgh on Penn at Seventh Avenue.

open hours:
Wed-Thurs: 11am-6pm
Fri-Sat: 11am-8pm
Sun: 11am-5pm
Free and open to the public.
