A Macaulay College student, Tyler Alterman that once took a class of mine (Intro to 2D Animation) is working on his senior project – a cognitive science lab in a truck. Watch the video, it’s the type of project that I can’t help but to support due to it’s good energy and idealism. It would be great to see an ice cream type truck with a giant brain buzzing around New York City!
This the final weekend of the exhibition ReGeneration at the NY Hall of Science in Corona Park. Various events and workshops will be occurring today. Catch the show before it comes down! Click here for more information on ReGeneration
The exhibition features my own “a geography of being : una geografia de ser” – an interactive art installation that reflects upon the dynamics of the undocumented immigrant population in the United States, specifically in relation to undocumented youth. The installation consists of wooden kinetic sculptures with animated displays titled “Undocumented Drones” and a video game that places the player in the role of an undocumented youth that must face several challenges in the search for self-determination beyond the imposed constraints of citizenry. View Documentation of the Installation. Or play the game online.
The installation “a geography of being : una geografia de ser” that consists of a video game and networked kinetic wooden figures revolves around the immigrant experience. The installation is on view as part of ReGeneration at the New York Hall of Science through January 13th, 2013.
New York Arts Practicum is an experiential summer program in New York City where advanced undergraduates, recent graduates, and graduate students participate in artmaking and intellectual culture outside of the traditional confines of the art school. The program centers around an internship with an active artist, a studio seminar, and weekly site visits to artist studios, galleries, and museums.
Through the intensive process of working with an artist on a day-to-day basis, students gain a view of their near futures as artists, learning models for negotiating a creative life outside of school in an expanded field of art prduction. The Practicum mentors are as follows (with three more to be added shortly): David Horvitz, Eva and Franco Mattes, Mark Tribe, Caroline Woolard, and Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga.
The critique/seminar and site visits reinvigorate the art student’s conventional modes of study.
Critique: Participants develop alternate strategies for creating work for critique without institutional studio facilities
Seminar: Visiting Faculty lead seminar on a set of readings related to their own practice. Visiting Artists in the seminar are: Steve Lambert, Trevor Paglen, Penelope Umbrico, and The Yes Men.
Art History/Contemporary Practices: Program Director Michael Mandiberg guides visits to galleries and museums, many of which will include conversations with curators and gallerists. Art and its contexts will be encountered and engaged with directly.
The 8 week New York Arts Practicum begins June 25th and ends August 17th, 2012. Application review begins April 2nd; application deadline April 16th.
Tuition is $2900, with some need-based financial aid available.
Academic credit is earned through arrangements with students’ home institutions.
