Jody Servon participated in the Art in Odd Places (AiOP) festival in New York City. AiOP presents visual and performance art in unexpected public spaces on 14th Street spanning from the Hudson River to Avenue C. This year’s festival, themed BODY, featured art projects by women, female-identifying, and non-binary artists working in both visual and performance art. The festival expanded its offerings this year to include a with a gallery exhibition at Westbeth Gallery that is on view from October 4 and continues through October 27. The show is curated by NYC based artist and curator Katya Grokhovsky.
The festival and exhibition received numerous press mentions including Hyperallergic, Artnet, Musee Magazine and Performance is Alive which includes mention and images of Servon's project "My Time is Valuable." This project invites female identifying and non-binary people to make visible the value of our time by photographing themselves with free prints that Servon distributes in hopes of achieving a more just and equitable world. Servon leads the art management program for the Department of Art and is currently serving as the Sharpe Chair of Fine and Applied Arts.
