Join artists Christopher Clary & Stephen Grebinski as they discuss their fascination with interiors and the interiority of pornography—which they archive, revere, and destroy in their work.
 
 
Christopher Clary collects, performs, creates and destroys photographs — specifically his pornography. His commission for Rhizome at the New Museum was named by Hyperallergic as one of the top 10 works of Internet art in 2015. He was also honored as a Discovery Award nominee at the 2011 Les Rencontres d’Arles in France and featured at the 2009 New York Photo Festival. His work has been reviewed in the New York Times, Artnet, Village Voice, Photo District News, Butt Magazine, HX, Out, and a forthcoming article about appropriation in Elephant magazine. “The court cases that pepper the career of Richard Prince might be round the corner for Clary, too, as he makes the transition from emerging- to established-artist.”
 
 
Stephen Grebinski is an artist working primarily with self-published books and zines, which are the result of an omnivorous photographic and archival practice. His printed work has been shown at NADA Fair, Printed Matter, The New York Art Book Fair, Art Metropole, and other institutions worldwide. His work tangles together queer bodies, architecture, and the persistent baroque impulses of desire. Existing somewhere between documentary and performance, these efforts are driven by an impulse to reveal and test the fractured, hidden world beneath our intentions and experiences. These images intersect and collide through brooks, multi layered screen prints, photographic installations, and video.
