Her sixteen-foot-tall sculpture, Brick House, is currently installed on New York City’s High Line. A solo exhibition of new sculptures is on view at David Kordansky gallery through June 11, 2020.

FUSE: A BOMB Podcast extends BOMB’s longstanding commitment to bringing together artists across disciplines to discuss their work and creative practice. Departing from the typical podcast format, there’s no host, no moderator, just two artists in dialogue, unfiltered. Listeners experience the conversation as if they were in the room with the artists.

In a limited series of six 35-minute episodes, prominent artists, writers, musicians, performers, and directors select an interlocutor from any creative field with whom they discuss their work and process.

This is how it works: We select an artist, writer, musician, performer, or director. Then they choose an artist of any discipline they would like to speak with. No host, no moderator, no interruptions. Just two artists in conversation.
