This is a special issue because we are turning over the controls to Emily Nachison. She is a multi-disciplinary artist and educator based in Portland Oregon. She has exhibited internationally and blown the minds of all the students she's worked with. For this issue of A.N.Y. she curated an extensive list of art from around North America and across the internet. Emily even gave us a peek into her research about the occult. And of course she shared some music.



Not That Jennifer is Josh Pew. He is a designer, woodworker and party starter.Perhaps you've been lucky enough to attend one of his Yogish sessions.

Josh is creating some really interesting social magic with his new party in Boise called NANCY. Challenging gender, authority and norms this party is creating expansive space in the Mountain West.

This mix is a story of humor, groove, darkness and time.

ANY007: Not That Jennifer


What is a question you have about the future?
What brand will my next pair of shoes be?
What is a prediction you have?
I predict that they'll be Adidas, but sources are uncertain. 
How will you be different tomorrow?
Tomorrow I will narrow down my options for volunteering. Boise has the largest Syrian population in America, so I want to participate. 

What does the future sounds like?
In the future, I’ll never have to…
Re-explain myself. They'll be a special device so no one will misunderstand each other anymore. Time saved!

In the future, I'll get to....
Have soft old man hands and people will be like "Whoa, that's a soft but firm handshake"

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A tennis player. Not professionally. Like, twice a month or something. You know, when I'm a little older. 
What movie/art piece/tv show changed the course of your future?
This doesn't directly fit in any of those categories, but Willam Morris' Manifesto of The Socialist League took me out of going to school for social work and into furniture. The movie The Red Shoes helped me know I was on the right path. 
How will your city change?
Boise is hungry for ideas and actions. As more people move here, if they have ambition, they'll be guiding culture. 
What is the future of your field of work?
By this summer, I'll be back to object making. I've been taking a nice break and learning some other skills, but my hands are getting antsy to be making my own designs. 
Any gigs coming up?
Yeah, I started this party in Boise called NANCY. The next one is on March 4th, and the following one will be April 1st. If anyone wants to come check it out, I have a very nice couch to sleep on. 

Where can we find you on the internets?


Alt Esc Platform
Alt Esc is a Brooklyn-based, artist-run curatorial team and publication started by Alison Sirico and Irina V Makarova in May 2016. Sparked by the realization that disparity exists between the institutionalized art world and the new wave of rising artists, Alt Esc was founded to vocalize the leading ideas and trends in young contemporary studio practice. We are interested in individuals and collectives who are players in the art world’s subcultural framework and those who are community oriented. Equal parts publication and event production team, we seek to communicate dialogues that manifest into praxis. Through publication and curating exhibitions, we strive to connect rising artists with new opportunities, while honoring and sharing their current achievements with a broader audience. Using the studio visit as a model for a narrative, we hope to communicate, foster and archive today’s young cultural landscape.

The work of JJ Brine has been compared to that of Duchamp and Andy Warhol. Brine is known as the “Father of the Posthuman Movement” and as “The Crown Prince of Hell.” Equal parts art installation and church, Vector is a beacon and a bank for lost souls. It is a breathing silver studio which stands as a reminder that there is salvation in the world’s eccentricities.

Natalia Ibáñez Lario
Natalia Ibáñez Lario lives and works in between Mexico City, Berlin and New York. Lario´s work refers to the human body and the possibility of being modified through various technologies because of aesthetic as well as racial issues and how this generates a global wave towards westernization reflected in girls in their twenties who spread their surgeries and lifestyles via social networks, making their bodies and ways of living a consumable product and thus celebrating aggressive capitalism in times of economic recession in a cute way.

The Rise of the L.A. Art Witch by Amanda Yates Garcia, Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles
“The etymology of the word magic comes from the Greek magoi, referring to people the Greeks saw as astrology-touting, talisman-bearing foreigners from the East. By its very definition, magic has always referred to outsiders, others, and those whose practices and beliefs run contrary to Western orthodoxy. It follows then that witchcraft, as a form of magic most commonly associated with medieval hags or sorcerers from “the dark continent,” also implies a practice that operates against the hegemonic authorities of the West. More and more frequently, we’re seeing contemporary artists utilize the methodologies of witchcraft in their practice, largely because, by its very nature, witchcraft is a political and creative act commanding power back into the hands of people who have historically been banished from the inner circles of cultural authority…”

Why Witchcraft Is Making a Comeback in Art by Izabella Scott
Juliana Huxtable
The artist, poet, and DJ Huxtable describes herself as “cyborg, cunt, priestess, witch, Nuwaubian princess,” and draws on the imagery of the Nuwaubian Nation, a religious cult that fuses together ideas of black nationalism, UFO theories, and Egyptian iconography. In her self-portraits, Huxtable transforms her body with metallic paint, entering a posthuman world in which she is queen—an imaginary, futuristic empire where white supremacy is no longer the presiding force, and where normative attitudes towards gender and sexuality have finally been overturned. Huxtable is also a member of a queer coven in New York, called House of LaDosha, that looks back to the ’90s queer culture of Paris Is Burning (1990), organizing club nights, making t-shirts, and exhibiting work together.

Esmeray Diriker
Esmeray Diriker was a Turkish singer best known for her work in the 1970s. Although, many of her songs are pop songs her lyrics often deal with displacement, war and social equality.


Emily says of her practice "My artwork explores the desire for alternate realities and liminal space. Through sculptural objects and installation I investigate the use of story and symbols to mythologize natural phenomena, referencing our collective desire for escapism and secret knowledge."

She'll be giving a lecture on her work at the American Craft Council in Minneapolis on May 10th
