Barbara Weissberger and I were recently interviewed by David Bernabo for Glassblock, a web magazine based in Pittsburgh, PA.

We talked about our ongoing long-distance material collaboration, beginning at the Drawing Center, and our latest installation Dirty Work, opening at the University Gallery at Pitt next week.

Check out the interview for more information and images of our work. We also recently launched a new website to document our collaborative installations at

Dirty Work

February 9 – March 23 2017

Opens February 9 at the University Art Gallery,
104 Frick Fine Arts Building, University of Pittsburgh

Dirty Work is the third collaborative installation by artists Eleanor Aldrich and Barbara Weissberger. In it they continue to explore the tension between illusion and the actual; the dynamic relationship between material and image; and art production as work.

Two Interviews

Barbara Weissberger and I were interviewed by Charlie Smith recently about ‘Hive and Double’, our collaborative work currently on view in Providence, RI at GRIN Contemporary.

I also had the opportunity to interview Nashville-based Paul Collins about his work for the LOCATE Arts website. LOCATE Arts focuses on and promotes contemporary artists working in each region of Tennessee.

‘Hive and Double’ opens March 26

My most recent collaborations with Barbara Weissberger will be on display at GRIN, in Providence Rhode Island.

In Hive and Double, Aldrich and Weissberger present an collaborative body of work about the installation or exhibition of large work that blurs the lines between production and product.  Touching on the tension between the possibilities of the studio and the singularity of the installed work,  their output is about artistic production and labor in post-industrial studios and DIY exhibition spaces . In addition to the physical labor involved in dealing with substances, there is a consideration of preserving space for mystery, the unexpected, and the phenomenological.

The opening reception is this upcoming Saturday, March 26, from 6 – 9 pm. Hope to see you there.
