Michael Lobel: Inside Vincent’s Creative Process: Van Gogh and Popular Culture

Renowned and prize-winning art historian Michael Lobel, Professor, Art History at Hunter College, shares insights from his ground-breaking research exploring the influences from the period’s print popular culture on the thinking and art of Vincent Van Gogh, one of the most beloved and enigmatic artists of all time. While we’ve all seen the work of Van Gogh in innumerable printed formats—in posters, exhibition catalogues, and full-color reproductions of all sorts—many are less familiar with the artist’s keen interest in the print culture of his time. This lecture will survey some of Van Gogh’s most significant influences of that type, particularly from the 19th-century English illustrated press, and explore their profound impact on his thinking and his art. Event will conclude with live virtual Q&A.

MFA Thesis Student Profiles: Amra Causevic and Andrew Foster

Amra Causevic is a combined media and installation artist and is interested in orchestrating instances of potentiality or concrete possibilities that proposes the futurity of play through means of touch, activation, assembly, and interaction.

Through the manipulation of light, surface, near-defunct-technologies, objects and traditional painting materials, Andrew Foster’s process based works vibrate at the edge of articulation and experience.

Constance De Jong: A survey exhibition of the artist’s work – Postponed

Constance De Jong: A survey exhibition of the artist’s work

Leubsfdorf Gallery
132 East 68th Street
New York, NY

Postponed

The Hunter College Art Galleries are pleased to present Constance De Jong, a survey exhibition marking the artist’s first solo show at an institutional gallery. For over four decades, De Jong—“a person of language”—has made daring, original forays into the intersections of the formal avant-garde in experimental prose writing, multi-media spoken text works, and user-navigated digital projects. Well known for her contributions to New York’s downtown performance art and avant-garde music scene in the 1970s and ’80s, De Jong is considered one of the progenitors of media art, or “time-based media.” This exhibition highlights De Jong’s hybrid mode of art making, featuring work from the past three decades and debuting several new works by the artist.

Curated by Sarah Watson and Jocelyn Spaar with Lazarus Graduate Curatorial Fellow Sigourney Schultz
