unmonumental is an ongoing social media performance that generates and instantly shares photographs of ephemeral artifacts in the New York City streets. Five years running and comprising over 800 photographs, unmonumental has grown into a project of monumental proportions.
Joy Garnett is an interdisciplinary artist and writer living in Brooklyn, NY. Her paintings, based on images she gathers from the Internet, examine the apocalyptic sublime at the intersections of media, politics and culture. Her social media projects engage the crossroads of our digital and material worlds. She teaches a seminar in the MFA program at City College, and pens a regular column for Art21 Magazine. She is represented by Winkleman Gallery, NY.
Tom McGlynn is an artist, writer, and independent curator based in the N.Y.C. area. His work is represented in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Cooper- Hewitt National Design Museum of the Smithsonian. He is the director of Beautiful Fields, an organization dedicated to socially- engaged curatorial projects, and is also currently a visiting lecturer at Parsons/the New School.
