A cross-sectional overview of the various ways that sports have been treated in artists’ film and video, experimental documentary, and media-based installation throughout history.

With these temporary tattoos you aren’t just wearing some of the finest Steeler tattoos found in Pittsburgh tattoo parlors and at Steelers games, but you can also “wear” another person’s nipples, moles, and body hair if you choose.

This is a new map of the world representing Steeler Nation, where countries that don’t have a fan base for the Pittsburgh NFL team don’t exist.
A full-scale graph / “mountain range” mural charting the snowfall in Syracuse over the last half century, and mounds of deicers which “melted” as winter outside progressed and visitors inside took away samples.
Interactive project inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s readymade “In Advance of the Broken Arm.” As a munificent reversal of this historic Dadaist work, the display is rendered useful again, allowing visitors to borrow the commercially made tools from an art gallery in the deepest winter months.
“Astria Suparak’s performance […] brilliantly set up the themes of the program. Let’s Get Tested explores the schism between the methodology of science and foible-filled humanness. For the most part, the tapes affirm the value of the ineffable and the elusive: immeasurable phenomena such as playfulness and pleasure.
