Stephanie Syjuco, MFASO Lecture

via Zoom

August 11, 7pm

Lectures are free and open to the public.

Stephanie Syjuco works in photography, sculpture, and installation, moving from handmade and craft-inspired mediums to digital editing and archive excavations. Using critical wit and collaborative co-creation, her projects leverage open-source systems, shareware logic, and flows of capital, in order to investigate issues of economies and empire. Recently, she has focussed on how photography and image-based processes are implicated in the construction of racialized, exclusionary narratives of history and citizenship. For 2019/20 she is a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow at the National Museum of American History in Washington DC. She is featured in Season 9 of the acclaimed PBS documentary series Art21: Art in the Twenty-First Century. Recent exhibitions include "Being: New Photography" at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; "Public Knowledge," at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; "Stephanie Syjuco: Rogue States," at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis; and "Disrupting Craft: the 2018 Renwick Invitational" at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.⁣

Born in the Philippines in 1974, Syjuco received her MFA from Stanford University and BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. She is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship Award, a Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Award, and a Tiffany Foundation Award. Her work has been exhibited widely, including at MoMA/P.S.1, the Whitney Museum of American Art, SFMoMA, ZKM Center for Art and Technology, the California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art, The 12th Havana Bienal, The 2015 Asian Art Biennial (Taiwan), among others. A long-time educator, she is an Associate Professor in Sculpture at the University of California, Berkeley. She lives in Oakland, California.

Constance DeJong: Digital Constellations

Online Exhibition
Bertha and Karl Leubsdorf Gallery

Ongoing
 
The Hunter College Art Galleries have initiated an online project in concert with our postponed spring 2020 exhibition Constance DeJong (now rescheduled for fall 2020). This project coincides with DeJong's final semester teaching in Hunter's MFA Studio Art program. 
 
Time-based and multi-platform, DeJong’s work has circulated widely and with admiration in literary and performance circles since the late 1970s, influencing both her contemporaries and students. Constance DeJong: Digital Constellations brings together the voices of many artists and writers, mostly Hunter College Studio Art MFA alumni, who have worked closely with DeJong over the last two decades. New submissions will be posted each week. 
 
Constance DeJong: Digital Constellations is organized by Sarah Watson, Jocelyn Spaar, and Liz Naiden, with Lazarus Graduate Fellow Matthew Weiderspon.

Nicky Enright: Sense Us 2020

Hunter East Harlem Gallery
(Viewable from 119th Street Windows)
2180 3rd Avenue at 119th Street
New York, NY

August 15, 2020 - January 31, 2021

Sense Us 2020 is a mixed-media installation of images and text on flattened shipping boxes by artist Nicky Enright. It is a public response to the questions around race on the current 2020 U.S. Census. Created to mimic the aesthetic of protest signs on cardboard and with a symbolically limited palette of black, white, and brown, the installation points to America’s pervasive fixation on race/ethnicity criteria and status checkboxes.  

Through the dynamic installation of Sense Us 2020, Enright strives to understand the connections among the race/ethnicity boxes on the census and other boxes of this historical moment: from the casket boxes of recurrent racist violence, to election-year ballot boxes and quarantine and intubation boxes; from mass incarceration, to town “squares” and monument pedestal boxes; from Zoom/Skype boxes, Amazon boxes, and cash vaults to riot-police kettling, a state-of-the-art form of containment.

Hunter East Harlem Gallery is currently closed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic but the Hallway Gallery can be seen through the windows on 119th Street.
 

Valerie Jaudon: Prepositions

DC Moore Gallery
535 West 22nd Street
New York, NY

Through October 3

Valerie Jaudon: Prepositions showcases recent paintings that continue Jaudon's longstanding examination, begun in the mid-1970s, of the bounded yet infinitely expandable world of the finely wrought, intricate, and maze-like abstract image.

Exhibition catalogue with essay by Raphael Rubinstein available.
