Krissy Abdullah is an artist from Gainesville, Florida. She just finished a summer residency at the Dirt Palace, and is now heading to Pittsburgh to continue her creative adventures. Krissy works primarily with 16mm film, video, and performance, and more recently has been dabbling in screen printing. She likes creating bright neon environments that would naturally make anyone else wanna puke, and loves karaoke. She also loves the obsessive repetition of wrapping things (which probably has to do with some sadistic deep-seeded need to coddle something that she’s not yet ready to admit). This is her first solo installation work.
Dirt Palace participated as a site for the People's Climate March wheat pasting campaign
Providence is one of the 30 cities participating in the wheat pasting campaign for the People's Climate March in NYC. This particular image was designed by Favianna Rodriguez from Oakland, CA and screenprinted by Jesse Purcell of the Justseeds collective. peoplesclimate.org
MEET NEW DIRT PALACE MEMBER.......
Upon arrival to The Dirt Palace in July, Rachel spent an ungodly amount of time designing her living quarters to mimic the PBS Masterpiece Theatre sitting room. She was successful. As a result, Rachel can now be found seated cross-legged by candlelight in a leather chair in the exact center of her room, pupils dilated to black, crooning softly about literature.
WRITING: R.Lew is proud to announce her first self-published book, scheduled for release this coming November. This publication is a huge milestone, as it will be Rachel's very first piece of print work ("art you can weep, bleed, vomit, defecate, or urinate directly onto")

Muffy had a great time as the MC of this year's Foo Fest at AS220.
There were awesome performances all day and the Providence Comics Consortium did amazing things as the artists in residence.

Jieun’s summer has been rich with small pleasures and though it’s coming to a close, she couldn’t be more excited. Why, you ask? The only thing greater than a summer pleasure is an autumn one!
She quit her job of 3.5 years making and restoring books at the end of July and is taking the world of 95% self employment for a spin.
Otherwise, the objects shifting in and out of the room might alter themselves, but the room has remained the same. (a metaphor)
New things in the shop. Here is a Scorpio for all you Scorpios out there!
