Seeking Hosts For the Ghost Army @ the 2021 Terrain Biennial

I'm an artist participating in and curating a project for the upcoming Terrain Biennial, taking place Saturday October 2nd and concluding on Monday November 15th, 2021 -- and I need your help! I'm seeking hosts to display posters, yard signs and more that I'm producing for the event in your house/apartment windows and yards.

My project, titled "Ghost Army" showcases my cartoon figure Allen the Chalk-Line Ghost (sample images can be found here), a figure typically seen in crime scene photos, which were historically never actually used for police evidence but were, in fact, used by news photographers to visualize victim's bodies for readers. 

Allen has now morphed into the Ghost Army project, a street art and now Terrain Biennial curatorial initiative to prompt national mourning of the more than 600,000+ Americans needlessly lost to the COVID-19 pandemic, and as a memorial to those lives lost and unmourned by others in general. 

I hope you'll get involved! To participate, fill out the Google form here by the deadline of 11:59PM ON JULY 12, 2021:

Deadline: 07.11.2021
