Group Therapy, Spring 2012 Student Show & Reading
An exhibition celebrating uncertainty, transition, and variety. The show will feature multi-media work by artists who hail from around the country and beyond.
"If You Insist," a collaborative performance by Co-Lab
The performance is a junction of dance, visual art, sound, and space design. Using gravity as the starting point, If You Insist spawns from a curiosity of reconciling ourselves to the ever-present forces that exist in our environment.
Reflexives, NYCAMS Post-Bacc Show
This exhibition highlights the work of NYCAMS Post-Baccalaureate fellows Francisco Donoso and Joshua Rayner. The exhibition, Reflexives, exhibits the culmination of an eight-month residency involving intensive studio practice, critiques, and theory development for the fellows. Through works on paper, painting, and mixed media sculpture, these artworks, and their makers, offer real reflection on the human experience.
All of Last Night & Most of Today
All of Last Night & Most of Today brings together artists with unique approaches to the act of making itself. The work represented in the show deals with a variety of concerns such as feminism, pop culture, time, loss, memory, abstraction and narrative. The title refers to a transitional passage between past and present work and the immersive experience of their shared semester in New York.
NYCAMS Student Show
NYCAMS is proud to present its 12th undergraduate student show, Temporarily: Out of Order. The survey exhibition features 21 undergraduate students working in a variety of media including: painting, drawing, design, sculpture, video, and more.
Temporarily: Out of Order compares the diverse and contrasting work of artists from throughout the United States. Presenting a range of aesthetics and concepts, this grouping explores the impermanent nature of a disjointed, yet cohesive assembly. Additionally, the collection observes underlying correlations running throughout the work of a new generation of up-and-coming artists.
TGIM, SP10 Student Show
NYCAMS presents its 11th student show, TGIM: Thank God it’s Monday. Nine artists and four writers have come together to showcase a body of work that aims to challenge and question the realism of our time through a variety of media: painting, illustration, photography, collage, sculpture, installation, and the written and spoken word. The pieces engage the viewer with questions that are pertinent to today’s issues and world while simultaneously offering a fresh, playful, and provocative experience.
Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Friday, or by appointment.
Regeneration: Root Beer Float Social 2010 Post-Bacc Show
Regeneration: Root Beer Float Social showcases the divergent practices of artists Nicholas Steindorf and Reid Strelow. Steindorf’s work consists of tightly constructed videos, sculptures and paintings that frequently highlight an electric use of color, with the occasional appearance of glitter. In this exhibition, the selected works reflect his frequent appropriation of artist materials as content.
Strelow’s choice of media in his large-scale sculptures constructed from raw-wood and minimal ink drawings are similarly austere. The controlled use of reconfigured materials allows the regenerative nature of his work to come into focus, as he recycles wood from former projects to build new sculptures.
Student Show: "Impulse"
NYCAMS presents its 10th student show, IMPULSE. Nineteen artists have created works that probe the lexicon of the art world through a variety of media: painting, drawing, photography, film, sculpture, and performance.
The works explore how the viewer can find delight in the push and pull between the speed of modern life and the doldrums of prolonged observation. The works also access the cusp between the intuitive and the conceptual in the art making process.
Young Artists in Practice
The New York Center for Art and Media Studies (NYCAMS), in collaboration with All Angels Church, is pleased to present the show Now on View: Young Artists in Practice. Four student curators from NYCAMS have worked together to present a survey of young artists currently working in areas along the Eastern coast of the United States. The four student curators—Erin McRae, Rachel O'Connor, and Josh Rayner from Messiah College and Anna Pugh from Wheaton College—are working together for the first time to organize this exhibition of works.
The artists represented in the show range from current students to recent college graduates working in their respective environments to refine and build their artistic practices. This show is intended to allow audiences to participate with these very contemporary works of art and to allow the messages of these works to challenge and confront viewers on many levels and with carious issues of realities, placement, and the processes of mourning, to name a few.
Any Thoughts or Questions?
The New York Center for Art & Media Studies (NYCAMS) is pleased to present the 2009 Student Art Show Any Thoughts or Questions? at the NYCAMS Gallery. Fifteen visual artists and four writers are pulling together work in a variety of mediums: animation, illustration, sculpture, installation, photography, poetry, and prose to produce Any Thoughts or Questions?.
NYCAMS Alumni Exhibition #2
Post Baccalaureate Exhibition # 3: Who lost this piece of paper?
NYCAMS Alumni Exhibition #1
Calvin College's downtown gallery, (106), is proud to present the inaugural NYCAMS Alumni Show. The works, juried by Yale University Art Gallery Curator Jennifer Gross and (106) Curator Kevin Buist, represent a diverse collection of young artists from around the country. The show features sculpture, video installation, drawing, photography, painting, and mixed media. The common thread shared by these artists is their commitment to engage in a meaningful dialog with contemporary art.
Portrait of Success as a Young Failure
Portrait of Success as a Young Failure, curated by Bonnie Kate, addresses the redefinition of “success.” The show includes work from all over the United States, representing a sample of emergent painters, video artists, writers, sculptors, and photographers. In his novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, James Joyce lets the language of the story evolve with his main character, Stephen Dedalus, as Daedalus matures and attempts to dispense with his creative fetters. Likewise Portrait of Success as a Young Failure is an attempt to challenge our understanding of language and expression in the instance of “success” and its fertile ground for failure.
Performance #2. Addtract: a sound painting installation
Based on the concept of bowling and movement of the ball down the bowling alley, the multi-dimensional performance Addtract includes spoken word, voice, 6 instruments, dance, and live sculpture with 16 artists. The score and performance elements are improvised under the direction of conductor Evan Mazunik around key visual images and passages.
