Wallace’s work both celebrates and examines the speed, spectacle and after effects of production and distribution.  He encourages us to think about what type of society we want to become at the pace we are moving and how our society will change with new developments in production, distribution and storage.

In a recent project, he has launched an ongoing conceptual art project that is a fictive startup, Amazing.  The startup ships laser cuts boxes around the world with messages both inside and outside,  delivers cultural goods via drone, stages performative artworks and conducts forward thinking research.

Wallace’s interest in production and distribution processes extends beyond the technological apparatus and into cultural production. Through an ongoing series of interviews, “The Conversation Project”, Wallace examines values and production of influential voices in contemporary art including Michelle Grabner, Massimiliano Gioni, Sharon Louden and John Yau.

Wallace is represented by ART 3 gallery in New York City.
