Mierle Laderman Ukeles

After child-birth in 1968, artist Mierle Laderman Ukeles became a mother/maintenance worker and fell out of the picture of the avant-garde. In a rage, she wrote the Cambridge, and the Ayalon Park in Israel. She has completed 6 work ballets with workers, trucks, barges, and hundred of tons of recyclables: in NYC, Pittsburgh, France, Holland, and Tokamachi, Japan. Recent and forthcoming exhibitions are a one person show in the Feldman Gallery Booth at the International Armory Art Fair in NYC, WACK! Art & the Feminist Revolution, at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Sharjah Biennial 8, United Arab Emirates. The unsalaried Artist In Residence in the NYC Department of Sanitation for 30 years, she is represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts in NYC. Often a visiting artist, she will teach at Yale in the sculpture department in 2007—2008. She has received multiple awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and the NY State Council on the Arts and support from the Guggenheim, Andy Warhol, Joan Mitchell, and Anonymous Was a Woman Foundations.

I’ve been inspired by her imaginative work on sanitation since first hearing in a book how she shook hands with all the sanitation workers in New Yourk city.  And I think the work still has resonance, a path well warn. There are AI’s who could use some of her guidance. And with it the potential to liberate us onec again from the grim, again.

yours in the struggle,

useful information on the history of oil in America. As the article unpacks the story: “In 1890, after the company had moved its headquarters to New York City, the Sherman Antitrust Act was passed. The law would be instrumental in breaking up the Standard Oil Trust. By this time, Rockefeller invested in iron ore and its transport, setting up a competition with fellow tycoon Andrew Carnegie. These interests would be sold to steel magnate J.P. Morgan, of U.S. Steel, in exchange for stock and for membership on the company’s board of directors for Rockefeller and his son, John Jr. In 1911, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Standard Oil Co. was in violation of the Sherman Antritrust Act, and the company was divided into 34 smaller organizations — some of which became Conoco, BP, Amoco, Chevron, and ExxonMobil. Rockefeller received proportionate shares of stock in each company, profiting handsomely in the aftermath. His personal fortune shot up to nearly $1 billion.”
