Suzanne Lacy, Zabar Visiting Artist Lecture

Roosevelt House
47-49 East 65th Street
New York, NY

February 26, 7pm

Los Angeles-based artist Suzanne Lacy is internationally renowned as a pioneer in the field of socially engaged and public art. Her installations, videos, and performances have dealt with issues of sexual violence, rural and urban poverty, incarceration, gender identity, labor, and aging. Working collaboratively within traditions of fine art performance and community organizing, Lacy has realized large-scale projects in London, Brooklyn, Medellin, Los Angeles, Quito, Northwest England, Madrid and, most recently, along the Irish Border, exploring local reactions to Brexit. In 2019 she had a career retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and at Yerba Buena Art Center.

Her work has been reviewed in The Village Voice, Frieze Magazine, Artforum, L.A. Times, New York Times, Art in America, and The Guardian, and in numerous books and periodicals. She has exhibited at Tate Modern in London, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Whitney Museum, the New Museum and P.S. 1 in New York, and the Bilbao Museum in Spain. She has received fellowships from the Rockefeller Bellagio residency program, the Guggenheim Foundation, The Henry Moore Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts and most recently the James H. Zumberge Faculty Research and Innovation Fund from the University of Southern California.

Also known for her writing and academic career, Lacy edited Mapping the Terrain: New Genre Public Art and is author of Leaving Art: Writings on Performance, Politics, and Publics, 1974-2007. She holds an MFA from California Institute of the Arts and a PhD from Robert Gordon University in Scotland. She is currently a professor at the Roski School of Art and Design at the University of Southern California and is a resident artist at 18th Street Arts Center.
 

Tom Lane, In Response to History

Thomas Hunter Project Space
930 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY

Through February 28

The role of Art has always been to respond to Art History or World History. Tom Lane’s porcelain vessels and sculpture examine many tragic and important issues of our day. The artistic voice is at times somber and other times humorous.
 
“I see my work in two groups: SERVICE and PLAY. Service includes the tribute vessels, about lives lost; these are works that felt like they needed to be done. Play includes The Pretenders (above), pieces that construct a fictional narrative that looks at the authority and responsibility of national leaders. Humor, like sorrow, puts the viewer in an emotional space that may open them to new ways of thinking.”   
 
“The tribute vessels may be the most important work I do. I believe the United States and specifically, New York City, has been suffering from PTSD since 9/11. I believe art has a transcendental value that has the power to heal.  The vessel is an understood form to hold this important content. The intellect does not get in the way; the message goes straight to the heart.”
 
Images of Tom Lane’s 9/11 Urn and Iraq Memorial Vase can be seen on Instagram: tom_lane_ceramics

Visitors will need to get a "guest pass" from the main entrance at Hunter College on the corner of 68th St. and Lexington Ave. You may then use any entrance to reach the Thomas Hunter Project Space, located in the basement of the Thomas Hunter Building (930 Lexington Ave.)
 

Lisa McCleary, Borderless

Gallery Cubed presents NEA: Network of Extraordinary Artists

Hunter East Harlem Gallery
2180 3rd Avenue and 119th Street 
New York, NY

Through February 29

Through painting, sculpture, and tapestry Lisa McCleary addresses the sensation of touch. In her work, McCleary creates a space in which desire, tactility, the body, and digital representation come together. Through her work, McCleary examines mediated corporeality, rendering the body into an abject and sensuous landscape and filtering the human form through many screens. Interested in the pleasure of flesh and the way that pleasure translates into our desire for tools of communication, McCleary’s work explores our tactile relationship to industrial materials. Using paint, she explores the erotic quality of the oozing landscapes, wet folds of metaphorical flesh, sexual arousal, and “otherness.”

Lisa McCleary is an Irish-Australian artist currently living in New York. In 2015, she received her BFA from UNSW Art & Design in Sydney, and in 2018 she completed her MFA at Parsons, The New School, in New York. She has exhibited internationally, and recently had a solo exhibition, “Edging”, at Gallery MC (New York). In 2018, she was chosen as a winner of the RE: ARTISTE, Show Your World, International Juried Art Competition at Gallery MC, and, in 2019, she was selected as a finalist for the William and Dorothy Yeck Young Painters Competition at Miami University and was awarded the Presidential Scholarship from the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado. She has been an artist-in-resident at Trestle Artist Residency (Brooklyn), the Summer Painting Residency at the School of Visual Arts (Manhattan), and the Vermont Studio Residency (Johnson, VT).
 

The Extraordinary

Hunter East Harlem Gallery

Through February 29

Featuring: Sarah Mihara Creagen, Canada | Woomin Kim, South Korea | Firoz Mahmud, Bangladesh | Yue Nakayama, Japan | Anna Parisi, Brazil | Shimpei Shirafuji, Japan | Catalina Tuca, Chile | Ramyar Vala, Iran

The Extraordinary is group show of eight artists who have or are seeking an O-1 Non-immigration Visa: Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement. Qualification for an O-1 Visa is based on subjective and complicated set of criteria: that individuals be “renowned” and have “distinction” in their field. The exhibition aims to bring attention and transparency to the immigration process while also critiquing this very system. The Extraordinary is an exhibition that visa-seeking artists can list on their CVs as part of the visa-qualifying process. The exhibition checklist was generated from an open call that received 123 applications from artists from 40 different countries. The eight artists included here were selected by a prestigious jury made of immigrant arts workers.

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, 7-9pm

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

McNally Jackson
52 Prince Street
New York, NY

February 27, 7pm

Writings is the first collection to widely survey this singular polymath’s prolific activity as a writer. A multidisciplinary artist known for his groundbreaking art, music, films, and videos, Tony Conrad eschewed categorization and actively sought to challenge the constraints of media forms, their modes of production, and the relationships of power embedded within them.

Edited by artists Constance DeJong and Andrew Lampert.

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.

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.
