“When we all started this campaign, we knew that there was far more that united us, than divided us. While we may have differed on who was best equipped to take on Dan Donovan, we wholly agree on one thing: we cannot return to the Attorney General's office to Republican control.”
At the Soho gallery, Jackson will present an installation entitled The Tomb—a large-scale work derived from the Tomb of Philippe Pot. Attributed to Antoine LeMoiturier, in the collection of the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Tomb of Philippe Pot is considered one of the masterpieces of the Burgundian style of the late 15th century. Jackson replaces the eight hooded monks who carry Pot’s effigy with astronauts that are rendered from scraps of wood and plastic.
"Sadly, despite the fact that he is asking for a promotion to be the state's top lawyer, Dan Donovan does not understand the basics of the state's penal code, or even his own bill. Had Mr. Donovan done a little research, he'd know that the misdemeanor domestic violence offenses in his bill are not subject to mandatory arrests and could let abusers walk free."
As of August 23, 2010, George Underwood has 498 Facebook friends, which may seem like many or a few depending on who you ask. Regardless, the mere mention of this social networking site should boost his Facebook friend count, while triggering little, if any, activity on Myspace and Friendster. I don’t think this really matters to Underwood personally, though the way that we connect today versus three years ago (Myspace) or three years before that (Friendster) is something that’s on his mind. Human relationships and the current technologies that foster them play a pivotal role in Underwood’s photographic practice.
Today AT 1:30 PM, NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn and NARAL Pro-Choice NY President Kelli Conlin will join dozens of women leaders and activists from across New York City to rally in support of Eric Schneiderman as the only progressive choice for Attorney General. The leaders will contrast Eric Schneiderman's lifelong progressive record with Kathleen Rice who only recently became a Democrat and has blocked progressive reforms.
“I am proud to have earned the support of leaders who understand the criminal justice challenges facing Long Island and communities throughout the state. As Attorney General, I will employ high-tech, multi-state strategies to fight illegal guns and protect our schools, streets and communities from violence. Together, we will advance a smart-on-crime approach to public safety to protect all New Yorkers. We can’t afford to go backward to the failed policies of the past,” said Eric Schneiderman.

The iconic Russell Simmons has partnered with im.material Global Committee to graciously host a benefit for Haiti at one of our favorite galleries, Gallery Nine5, on September 15th 2010.
