Madhvi Subrahmanian, walk and chew gum…

Thomas Hunter Project Space
930 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY

Through March 23
Opening Reception: March 6, 6-8pm

Madhvi Subrahmanian’s practice has been informed, defined and transformed by her migratory life and the opportunities and challenges of her constant relocations. Her exhibition walk and chew gum…captures her response to New York City during her Visiting Artist Residency at Hunter College Department of Art and Art history.

“As I was exploring the grid and responding to the city in clay, paper and photo documentation, I became fascinated with the persistent gum marks on the pavements.  The marks tell a story of where people congregate, connect, and depart, while disclosing the social structure of a neighborhood. Having lived in Singapore, a country where chewing gum is banned, these marks become more evident to me, revealing the movements of people in the city and spaces where they take a break from its relentless energy”.

Based between Mumbai and Singapore, Subrahmanian is an artist, curator, and writer. Her initial training was in Pondicherry, India and she has a Masters in Fine Arts from Meadows School of the Arts, Dallas, TX.  She is a founder member of the Indian Ceramic Triennale and a member of International Academy Of Ceramics, Geneva and Artaxis, USA.  Her works can be seen in numerous public collections in India, Japan, China and Singapore.

Constance De Jong: A survey exhibition of the artist’s work

Leubsfdorf Gallery
132 East 68th Street
New York, NY

March 19 - May 3
Opening Reception: March 19, 6-8pm

The Hunter College Art Galleries are pleased to present Constance De Jong, a survey exhibition marking the artist's first solo show at an institutional gallery. For over four decades, De Jong—“a person of language"—has made daring, original forays into the intersections of the formal avant-garde in experimental prose writing, multi-media spoken text works, and user-navigated digital projects. Well known for her contributions to New York's downtown performance art and avant-garde music scene in the 1970s and '80s, De Jong is considered one of the progenitors of media art, or "time-based media." This exhibition highlights De Jong's hybrid mode of art making, featuring work from the past three decades and debuting several new works by the artist. 

Curated by Sarah Watson and Jocelyn Spaar with Lazarus Graduate Curatorial Fellow Sigourney Schultz

Hunter North, Kossak Lecture Hall, Room 1527
930 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY

March 27, 9am - 5pm

Organized by the Rockwell Center for American Visual Studies at the Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, Massachusetts, and the Department of Art and Art History at Hunter College, New York City, this one-day interdisciplinary symposium brings together scholars, curators, and artists who are exploring new approaches to the study of illustration within historical and contemporary frameworks.

As a set of practices and a cultural force, illustration emerged in the 19th century as a new and distinctly modern phenomenon. A vital component of the visual languages of advertising, design, publishing, and entertainment, illustration is omnipresent in modern culture, yet its historical and theoretical specifics have remained relatively unexamined. This symposium aims to bring together researchers and practitioners across multiple fields who are interested in the history, practice, and subjects of illustration, and who want to contribute to the emerging field of illustration studies.

The theme of the symposium’s morning panel on immigration and migration in illustrating is inspired by the Norman Rockwell Museum’s current exhibition, Finding Home: Four Artists’ Stories.

Works on Water 2020 Video Exhibition Call for Video Works, Deadline: March 20

The Works on Water 2020 Triennial (WoW Triennial) is a series of public art works made directly on, in, and with bodies of water in all five boroughs of New York City. The WoW Triennial is not a static exhibition, but a dynamic invitation to New Yorkers to experience and reimagine the edge of our city through site-specific, participatory, time-based and embodied installations, events, conversations, excursions and more. It will take place May - October, 2020 in and around the bodies of water that surround New York City, with programming focused around the first weekend of each month. 

The Works on Water 2020 Triennial Video Exhibition (WoW Video) takes as its focus works from beyond New York City. We are interested in documentation of objects, events, and performances situated on, in, about, and/or with waterways, and that use water as site and/or material. We welcome time-based works that engage the public and address climate change and environmental issues from local to global contexts.

Call for Papers: Art and Politics Under Chile's Estallido Social, Deadline: April 1

On October 18, 2019, massive protests erupted in Chile, inaugurating the biggest social uprising since the end of Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship (1973–1990). Coined as Chile’s estallido social (social outbreak), millions of citizens and immigrants took to the streets to demand a decolonial “commonwealth”—the end of the neoliberal model imported for the first time into Chile during Pinochet’s regime under the advice of US economist Milton Friedman, and the end of centuries of colonialism from western Europe and US powers—stating that they would not stop “Until Dignity Becomes the Norm,” as its main motto reads. Presided over by right-wing billionaire Sebastián Piñera, the government in office has responded by violating human rights and refusing to implement structural changes. As a result, the population has created murals, performances, and collective actions, thus turning the public space into an open-air experimental museum. Considering the urgency of the political situation vis-à-vis the major role that art has adopted within it, we call for papers addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:

• Feminisms and performance
• Digital and/or material images
• The appropriation of cultural symbols and mottos used during Allende’s “Peaceful Road to Socialism” and the right-wing dictatorship
• Muralist brigades
• Contingent graffities
• Art and Neoliberalism
• Photodocumentary and protest

Chairs: Florencia San Martín, School of Visual Arts & Paula Solimano, Hunter College

For more information on the conference, please visit the website: https://secacart.org/page/Richmond. All proposals must be submitted by April 1, 2020.
