Aura Rosenberg, MFASO Lecture

Hunter MFA Studios, Second Floor Flex Space
205 Hudson Street
New York, NY

Aura Rosenberg lives and works in New York and Berlin. Her work draws on photography, video, painting, sculpture, installation and performance to probe sexuality, gender, childhood, work/play, artistic identity, family relationships and world history. She has published three books of photographs: Head Shots, (StopOver Press 1996), a series of black/white portraits of men seemingly caught in a moment of ecstasy; Berlin Childhood (Steidl/DAAD 2001), inspired by Walter Benjamin’s chronicle of a bourgeois upbringing in Berlin at the turn of the last century and Who Am I? What Am I? Where Am I ? (Hatje Cantz 2006), a series of children’s portraits, each made in collaboration with another artist. Her photo series Head Shots was shown this year at Kunstmuseum Stuttgart and travelled to Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern, Switzerland. A selection of her paintings, video and sculptural work is currently featured at Muzeum Susch in an exhibition titled Up To And Including Limits: After Carolee Schneeman.

Rosenberg is represented by Martos Gallery in New York City and Meliksetian Briggs Gallery in Los Angeles. She teaches at Pratt Institute and The School of Visual Arts. She also plays keyboards with her bands the Cornichons and Dirty Mirrors in NYC and Berlin.

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
Opening Reception: February 7, 6:30-9pm

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.”

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
2180 3rd Avenue and 119th Street 
New York, NY

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.

New York, NY

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.

The Immigrant Artist Biennial Open Call, Deadline: March 3

Open Call: Mother Tongue/Language invites immigrant artists who explore the use of language in isolation, belonging, and becoming to submit work. Topics might include: how language is used to build or erase communities; the multilingual experience; digital languages, and/or how cultures and traditions are shared or lost across generations.

The Immigrant Artist Biennial (TIAB) is a multi-site artist-run project, presenting work by U.S based immigrant artists from around the world. Established and Curated by Founding Director, Katya Grokhovsky, TIAB sets out to form an international dialogue through exhibition of ambitious projects and events with an aim to facilitate a diverse and experimental discourse as well as build a globally connected and united community in the times of extreme anti-immigrant sentiment, unrest, discrimination and exclusion.
