A.K. Burns: Negative Space

SIGNED by A.K. Burns

Signed on the occasion of book launch of A.K. Burns: Negative Space (Dancing Foxes Press/Wexner Center for the Arts, 2023) at Artbook @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore on Sunday, July 16 2023.

Readings and a conversation with A.K. Burns, CAConrad, Megan Hicks, and Aruna D’Souza


Chronicling an epic multimedia project 10 years in the making, A.K. Burns’s first monograph grapples with resource limitations, ways of coexisting and the necessity to cultivate sociopolitical agency in the margins.

Deploying science fiction, material feminism, eco-anarchism, queer theory and technoscience, New York–based artist A.K. Burns (born 1975) explores the fraught relationships between humanity and the environment in an epic multimedia work, Negative Space (2015–23).

This nonlinear allegory was developed as a cycle of four video installations, Negative Space imagines new relationships to the spaces we occupy and the impact of our bodies in these spaces through imagery, research and critical and creative writings. Set in a speculative present, the tetralogy envisions a new materialist cosmology wherein hierarchical relations are transformed.

A.K. Burns is an interdisciplinary artist and associate professor based in New York, whose work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio, where Negative Space is being shown in full for the first time. Working at the nexus of language and materiality, Burns troubles systems that assign value and explores their sociopolitical embodiment.

has worked with the ancient technologies of poetry and ritual since 1975. They received the 2022 Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, a Creative Capital grant, a Pew Fellowship, a Lambda Literary Award, and a Believer Book Award. They teach at Columbia University in New York City and the Sandberg Art Institute in Amsterdam.

Megan Hicks,
assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at Hunter College, uses archaeology to study how communities have stewarded their local ecologies over long periods of time and to explore the influences and impacts of colonial and capitalist market-oriented economies upon them.

Aruna D'Souza
writes about modern and contemporary art; intersectional feminisms and other forms of politics; and how museums shape our views of each other and the world. Her book Whitewalling: Art, Race, and Protest in 3 Acts was named one of the best art books of 2018 by the New York Times.
