The opening reception for the VCS senior exhibition “Points of Experience” will take place this Wednesday, January 29th from 6 to 8 pm in the School of Visual Arts Flatiron Gallery at 133/141 West 21st Street in New York. Here’s a description of the show from the Visual & Critical Studies website:
School of Visual Arts presents “Points of Experience,” an exhibition of works by fourth-year students in the BFA Visual & Critical Studies Department. Curated by faculty member Isabel Taube, it reveals the wide variety of artistic and theoretical practices in the BFA Visual & Critical Studies Department. Works on view include interactive installations that invite viewers to engage with actual or virtual worlds; creative accounts of personal narratives, ranging from hikes along the Appalachian Trail to cross-generational, multilingual conversations; and invented experiences, drawn from the artist’s imagination or shaped by found photographs and love letters. According to Taube, “This exhibition addresses the complexities of creating and representing experiences both from and for multiple viewpoints. Together the works address fundamental themes of identity formation, communication, and memory that affect both aesthetic and everyday experiences and their interpretation.”
The exhibition includes work by Caryn M. Cueto, Gabrielle DiBattista, Masha Dzambulova, Bobbie Jean Fisher, Andrea Garcia, Julia Garcia, Owen Karrel, Minhae Kim, Kylie Lefkowitz, Lily Lewis, Alexandra LoRe, Alexandra Manikas, Christopher Miller, Mike Morelli, Jonathas Nazareth, Rivers Plasketes, Oona Tempest, George Rue, Amanda Spinosa, Berny Tan and Justine Wong.
“Points of Experience” will be on display from January 18th to February 8th, 2014. The SVA Flatiron Gallery is open Monday through Friday 9 am to 7 pm and Saturday 10am to 6 pm, and is closed on Sundays and federal holidays. Both the reception and the exhibition are free and open to the public. For more information, you can contact the gallery by phone at 212-592-2145, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
