The fort gondo publication series, 2012-2014, included two full-length, perfect-bound artist books - Pink by Edo Rosenblith and Watch Out: This Might Hurt by Peter Pranschke - as well as a several dozen limited edition artist zines. The zine "library" was curated by Cole Lu. All fort gondo publications have been collected by several national private and public collections, including Washington University's Special Collections, Pratt Institute's Special Collections and the St. Louis Public Library, among others.
Between 2012 - 2016, I was the Director of fort gondo compound for the arts, a pioneering community arts forum founded in 2002 on St. Louis' Cherokee Street consisting of two neighboring storefront galleries (fort gondo and beverly) - producing nearly two dozen exhibitions a year, a poetry series, a publication series and an ancillary program series. During my tenure, I established nonprofit status and garnered a 2-year program support grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts (2015-2016), a Daedalus Foundation grant (2014) and several local arts grants. The space closed permanently in December of 2016. Image: Tuan Nguyen's harmonica, solo exhibition, 2014.
