Candice Breitz, From A to B and Back Again

Candice Breitz is a Berlin-based artist whose moving image installations have been shown internationally. She has been a tenured Professor at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Braunschweig since 2007. Breitz has spent long stretches of time producing works in Jamaica, Italy, Germany, Austria, Japan, Sweden, Great Britain, Ukraine, South Africa, the United States, India, and Nigeria. Her immersive practice seeks to capture and observe the nuanced ways in which individuals relate to and are determined by the dense social constellations in which they exist. She will talk about and screen footage from several works that she has made on the road over the last decade, discussing the ways in which her creative practice has been shaped by the myriad of people and places that each work must negotiate as it comes into being.

Free and open to the public

This show was curated by Amy Rahn (PhD candidate in Art History at SBU)

This exhibition explores the subtle, double, and hidden meanings the apparent clarity of black and white might obscure. The show includes, among its ten contributors, an artist who makes paintings from redacted government documents, a sculptor who forges metal into unreadable script, and a painter who rendered a portrait in the form of a novel. With its visual and conceptual twists and turns, the exhibition invites viewers to encounter these works in all their lucid complexity.
