Social Practice: A Q&A with Laura Hudson

Laura Hudson (NAP #99) has been getting out of the studio. The Baltimore-based painter organizes participatory events, documents them on video, then culls her compositions from the nuanced moments hidden in the hours of footage. For her latest project Laura organized a sleepover at the Arlington Arts Center in suburban Washington, DC. The event was meant to be a sentimental throwback to the days of slumber parties -- the artist and 15 of her friends ate junk food, chatted, and played cards all night before nodding off into sleeping bags.

The Masked Men and Women of Michelle Ramin

Michelle Ramin (NAP#99), composes colored pencil portraits of her friends and family.  Sounds cute and cuddly at first, but not necessarily.  Ramin’s portraits depict those close to her in great detail, all while they are wearing face masks.  Creepy, yet personal; Scary, yet seductive, Ramin’s works are compositionally and conceptually challenging both on an individual and larger societal level.
