Third Project Curatorial – Victoria Hristoff & Gabriella Moreno

Flatiron Project Space
133 W 21 Street, ground floor
March 13-April 10, 2020
Opening reception on Thursday, March 19, 6 PM


Participating artists: Julia Garcia, Kate Jones, Lichi Wo, Lisa Saeboe


Historically paradise has functioned as a doctrine, as a reward, a coveted end-point, a place. However, this location holds no physical space. One cannot arrive at paradise, one can only see their own physical context and desire an idealized elsewhere. cloud 9 is a mixed media exhibition poking holes at the definition of paradise and exploring the nuanced projections of this concept. Featuring works by VCS alumni Julia Garcia, Kate Jones, Lichi Wo, and Lisa Saeboe. Curated by The Third Project, a Brooklyn based curatorial project focused on challenging conventional narratives in the contemporary art market. As a platform for emerging artists, we generate a unique space for conversation while rewriting typical curatorial practices.

The Flatiron Project Space, created and founded by BFA Visual & Critical Studies, is located on the ground floor of 133 West 21 Street. The gallery invites VCS students and guest curators, along with other departments at SVA, to realize curatorial projects that highlight our rapidly expanding visual culture. Shows are held monthly and include video, performance, painting and sculptural projects.

The gallery is open Monday through Sunday, 9 AM to 6 PM. It is fully accessible by wheelchair.
