Mary Kelly: Projects: 1973-2010.
Mary Kelly will explore the questions of sexuality, identity and historical memory that have prompted her project-based work for over four decades. She will consider how these questions are shaped by a debate-specific site and why her narrative installations rely not only on the story unfolding between words and objects, but also on the viewer’s experience of space.
Free and open to the public

This year’s annual MFA OPEN STUDIOS event will be held on Oct. 9th and 10th. Stony Brook students, faculty, staff and general public are welcome to come visit the main studios located in Nassau Hall. This is a rare and fun opportunity to meet the artists and see what goes on in an artist’s studio before work enters the public.
Regardless of the chosen area of concentration, an MFA candidate must be able to prove not only strong conceptual development, but also the skillful execution of tools, materials, and craft. This includes programs rooted in innovative uses of technology, collaborative work, or interdisciplinary projects.
Stony Brook University’s MFA program is a small yet select group of candidates working in a variety of mediums ranging from photography, video, digital, sculpture, painting, printmaking and beyond. The artists will be at Nassau Hall Wednesday Oct. 9th from 4-10 pm and Thursday Oct. 10th from 12-10pm with reception on Oct. 10th from 7-10pm.
Please see our Facebook event page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/events/563663360360154/
Any questions you may have can be directed towards firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you all there!

For Stony Brook University art students, having a work featured at Sunwood has become a distinction in the Department of Art. This year 16 students can make that claim as winners of the fourth annual juried art competition that began when Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD, and his wife, Dr. Ellen Li, moved in to Sunwood and saw the opportunity to showcase student artwork on the walls of the mansion in Old Field. The off-campus conference venue is used for many events throughout the year, giving young artists much-coveted exposure.
Stony Brook University alumna Alexandra Iosub, ’11, is one of 20 scholars nationwide to receive a graduate arts award from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, which she will use toward academic expenses as she begins her master’s degree in fine arts at Penn State this fall.
Zabet Patterson, Assistant Professor of Art History & Criticism, and Assistant Professor in the Consortium for Digital Art, Culture and Technology, has won the prestigious 2012 Warhol Foundation | Creative Capital Arts Writers Grant for her new book project.
Visionary Machines: USCO, Techno-Utopia and Technocracy will be the first book to provide a historical and theoretical account of USCO, a group of poets, filmmakers, artists, and engineers who lived and worked as an artists’ collective from 1963 to 1966. USCO participated in a counterculture that straddled the Beats and the Hippies and intersected with figures from Silicon Valley, academia, and the art world, including Marshall McLuhan, Timothy Leary, Andy Warhol, Allen Ginsberg, Carolee Schneeman, John Cage, and Robert Rauschenberg. Widely influential during the 1960s, USCO was essentially lost to history because their work doesn’t fit into many of the traditional cultural and artistic narratives of the period. Nevertheless, USCO’s story offers a unique insight into the problems and possibilities of advanced computational technology, at a point when the world was shifting from the mechanical to the cybernetic age. Patterson will argue that USCO interrogated information technology without slipping into either melancholic fatalism or uncritical techno-utopianism. Instead, they created fictional worlds that fused scientific innovation with mystical exploration, while grappling with the rough work of building community.Zabet Patterson is assistant professor in the Department of Art at Stony Brook University, where she specializes in the intersection of contemporary art and computational media in the postwar period. Her recent articles include “Cybernetic Cinema: From the Gun Controller to the Mandala” in Grey Room and “POEMFIELDs and the Materiality of the Computational Screen” in Animation. She has presented on modern and contemporary art and computational media at symposia in Istanbul, London, Florence, Vancouver, Tokyo, and the United States, and has curated exhibitions on sound art and locative media. She received her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 2007.
She is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow Intel Center for Science and Technology in Social Computing (ICST-S) at New York University.
