Fastnet was included by Phong Bui and the Rail Curatorial project at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City for the exhibition Artists Need to Create on the Same Scale That Society Has the Capacity to Destroy, October 15 – December 16, 2017.
"...this exhibition focuses on artists whose practice interrogates the contemporary social climate, including issues surrounding immigration, the environment, human rights and equality, foreign relations, among others, ultimately drawing attention to art as it functions as a lens for better understanding the time in which we live."
