ThomasHollingworth Thomas Hollingworth was always a strange child. From meager beginnings his application of the word – initiated by a frustrated sense of purpose – thrust him unwittingly into the World’s most celebrated cities, where, spurred by selfish ends, he began to exact with startling dexterity a career in writing. Now marooned in South Florida, his labor as ever marked by a noticeable violation of good taste this laggard and founder of ARTLURKER strives to sully his undeservedly pleasurable existence with art world dirt.

 

Current Writers

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… .

BennetDavid Alexander Bennett was born in heinously sunny South Florida. He’s studied visual art so long it’s a wonder he can cook or shave. He’s inspired by Jim O’Rourke, David Lynch, Max Ernst, David Jien, Richard Brautigan, Satoshi Kon, and Chris Avellone, to name a few. He’s currently a gallerist and freelance culture writer and plays guitar music whenever tolerated.

 

 

rodriquezDave Rodriguez is an archivist, film projectionist, moving-image artist, and co-founder of Miami Music Club. He has worked in motion-picture preservation, exhibition, and collections management at George Eastman House, Bard College, Miami Beach Cinematheque, Continental Film Laboratory, and Coral Gables Art Cinema. His collection of 16mm film and VHS tapes is cumbersome and unreasonable. His interests include the intersections of art and music, expanded cinema, and the finer points of empanada and tostone craftsmanship.

cassidy fryCassidy Fry as an architect, cannot ignore the collective human desire to save the planet. As an artist, he identifies that art has the potential to reconcile apocalyptic guilt. To live green, society cannot deny that the practices of contemporary culture are destroying the earth. Cassidy embraces his shame of survival.

As an adjunct faculty member at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s AIADO department and the Illinois Institute of Technology’s College of Architecture, he teaches design studios, theory, communications and matter(s). His design and criticism looks at the opportunistic exchanges between the city, audiences, cultures and lifestyles, with a focus of changing the ways we converse publicly about architecture.

He has lived and worked in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, North West Washington State, Vancouver BC and currently resides in Miami where he promotes political activism and awareness through sculpture and video and strong regimens of reading and writing with a focus on sustainability and de growth.
