Faculty Shows Receive Rave Reviews

Art Professor Nobuhu Nagasawa’s new public sculpture “Luminescence” at Hunter’s Point South Park is now open to visitors, and has received poisitive press from a number of outlets, including from Curbed NY and The Architectural Record and who notes that:

“The isle’s dune-like upward curvature and the plantings that surround its edge contribute to a sense of enclosure, most strikingly at its top, which offers a tranquil setting to take in the skyline. It is an encounter rich in dichotomies: isolation and connection, density and openness, the natural and the machine-made.”

Additionally, Art History Professor Katy Siegal’s curated show at the Met Breuer featuring the work of sculptor Jack Whitten has been reviewed by the New York Times, which notes:

“The cross-cultural, cross-media conversations resulting from the show’s disparate objects swirl around the visitor, conveying a vital sense of how artists thrive in an aesthetic space that is porous and fluid, distilling experiences and transforming sources.”

The exhibition, which features forty sculptures and eighteen of the artist’s paintings, will be open until December 2nd, 2018.

James Panero of the Wall Street Journal wrote about Art Studio Professor Howardena Pindell’s show “What Remains to Be Seen a 100-work retrospective now on view at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, noting that:

“With her wide-ranging style and broad use of materials, Ms. Pindell has long been a round peg in a square hole. Enigmatic at times, didactic at others, she is an innovative abstractionist who also works in photography and video.”

The show will be open until November 25, 2018.
