CURATOR: PIPER MARSHALL
Piper Marshall is an independent curator and writer based in New York City. She is a second year PhD student in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University.  Marshall has curated monographic exhibitions of artists Ryan McNamara, John Miller, Caitlin Keogh, Robert Barry, Sadie Benning, Ericka Beckman, Judith Bernstein, Hannah Weinberger, and Angela Bulloch. Formerly curator at the Swiss Institute / Contemporary Art New York, she organized the group exhibition "Descartes' Daughter,” and edited the accompanying exhibition reader. Marshall writes for periodicals including Texte Zur Kunst, Art in America Magazine, Kaleidoscope Magazine, Spike Magazine, The Third Rail and artforum.com. Other notable projects include “The Body As Techno-Base,” an ongoing collaborative research project with artist Rochelle Goldberg.

CURATOR'S THEME
Sinister Feminism. We fortify veneer into armor. We appropriate from misogynist sources. We exceed the cinematic ideal. We vibrate the sound of the city. We endure. Our physicalizations we know are transgressive. We are a halation of line. We throw shadow across the page. We teach the tongues of the past. We mock the habit of metonymy. We transmit the sense of hysterics. We smell. We hurl what we are required to withstand: our bodies, our selves. We are trying to reach you. 
We wildly grin.
