  • Ethan Shoshan  • Ethan Shoshan  • New York

    I am an artist, community activist, and non-profit computer a/v technical consultant committed to building communities and support around social justice, art and activism. Living on my own at an early age has taught me how to care for myself and others, motivating me to continue to focus on art as a cathartic creative reimagining and a way to shed light on social injustices. I am currently the creative director of Empirical Nonsense, a location-less cultural arts space based in the lower east side, and was previously the interim director of the Feature Hudson Foundation, a foundation dedicated to Hudson’s life through his creative contributions and unique vision to the arts and cultural experience as an artist and as the art dealer of Feature Inc.

    I have been a working artist for over 15 years with solo exhibitions at Envoy Enterprises (NYC), Aljira (Newark, NJ), Commonwealth & Council (Los Angeles, CA), The Center for Book Arts (NYC), Le Petit Versailles (NYC) and Gene Frankel Theater (NYC). In 2017, I self-published an artist book edition, breadcrumbs, at MoMA PS1 for Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair with Allied Productions Inc. I co-developed/ran an art program with Sylvia’s Place shelter for queer trans youth from 2013 - 2017. This social practice program later evolved into a working collective with numerous exhibitions and institutional support. My current body of work focuses on displacement, gentrification, and growing concerns of capitalism by focusing on drawings of abandoned places and public signage. This body of work comes out of my past dedication and work at a housing advocacy organization, Picture the Homeless, previous art and food programs at Sylvia’s Place Emergency Shelter, my own housing situation, and living in New York City.

    I am the recipient of several grants/fellowships from Joan Mitchell Foundation, Open Society Foundation, New York Foundation For the Arts, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and The Puffin Foundation. My work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Art In America, The Brooklyn Rail, Artforum, ArtNEWS, Washington Post, LA Weekly, Huffington Post, BlackBook, among numerous other publications.
