New Prefix for Design Courses!

Design courses now have their own prefix! Design courses previously listed as ARTS are now listed as DESN,

This change has caused some issues with Degreeworks for students pursuing a Design major. We are working with the Registrar to resolve this issue. Please be patient, and rest assured that this issue will not interfere with your ability to graduate. Degreeworks is a tool for students, and sadly often confusing. Your entire transcript is reviewed when petitioning for graduation.

Godwin-Ternbach Event: Curator Talk with Louise Weinberg, “Why Do We Need Photography?”

Join us on Wednesday, July 28th at 7pm for a virtual talk featuring Godwin-Ternbach Museum’s curator and co-director Louise Weinberg.

From x-rays of the body’s interior to the most recent images produced by NASA’s Hubble telescope, photography shows us our world in micro to macro.

Bringing together iconic works from the permanent collection of the Museum with works from other collections including the curator’s own, ‘Why Do We Need Photography?’ serves to remind us of how we describe, commemorate, document, and communicate as human beings.

This program is presented in collaboration with Kupferberg Center for the Arts and with support in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Program is FREE and registrations are required. LINK to register: https://bit.ly/GTM-Talk-July28

 

Faculty Exhibition: Chris Esposito, “Wall Sandwich”

Our painting professor Chris Esposito will be showing new works at Amos Eno Gallery!

An opening reception will take place Friday, June 18th at the gallery from 6-9 PM in our new location in the center hallway at the 56 Bogart Street in Brooklyn, NY. The solo show presents new work featuring industrial materials at a range of scales, making visible what is regularly invisible in the surrounding environment.

 

This exhibition shows the artist’s inspiration in dialogue with Gordon Matta-Clark’s practice from the 1970s engaging with New York City’s spaces of decay by highlighting dilapidated buildings and condemned architecture. In these works, Matta-Clark cut into sections of his birth city’s urban landscape to reveal its “anarchitecture.” In Wall Sandwich, Esposito has taken up the mantle of what could be called the “Anti-Matta-Clark” – not because he is operating as the opposite of Matta-Clark, but because his is an intervention that reveals the material composition of these removed sections. Esposito concentrates on the interior and exterior of the walls, the space in between, the endless layers of palimpsest both polished and tarnished. It is a study of the soul of New York City, and as such Esposito takes the matter and material of those Matta-Clark interventional cuts and places this detritus into the context of the white cube contemporary art gallery.

Residency Opportunity: ProjectArt

About The Residency
ProjectArt is pleased to announce our annual Request for Proposals for our Arts Education and Social Impact Residency. This is an opportunity for visual artists to teach and mentor students virtually or in-person through ProjectArt’s partnership with local libraries from coast to coast. Residents expand their artistic practice, while teaching after-school visual art classes. For the 2021-2022 year, classes, panels, studio visits, and exhibitions will be held either in-person or virtually depending on each library and city’s reopening guidelines.

Each selected artist is assigned to a partner public library branch either in-person or virtually, where they develop a weekly class curriculum covering 30 weeks to instruct and mentor youth ages 4-18. At the same time, in-person or digital library resources are available to develop a new body of work and research.

The residency culminates in a curated group exhibition featuring works by all city-wide residents. It also offers artists panel discussions, paid studio visits, as well as professional development with art-world consultants.

About ProjectArt
ProjectArt is an award-winning, arts education-centered non-profit that serves youth and artists in partnership with the nation’s public libraries. Our model entails tuition-free, after-school art classes to children, and art residencies to emerging artists committed to arts education and social impact.

Prior to the pandemic, ProjectArt classes were held in-person at 43 libraries in NYC, Miami, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, New Orleans, and most recently, Cleveland. Last year, ProjectArt held its programs virtually to assure the safety of our communities nationwide. The 2021-2022 year will consist of both in-person and virtual programming, as we work with our library partners to develop safe reopening strategies.
