For the second installment of the 2015-2016 Stony Brook University Art History & Criticism Lecture Series we are pleased to announce that multimedia artist Robert Whitman will discuss his two latest projects: Swim (2015) and Local Report (2012). Whitman’s career spans multiple decades and disciplines. His recent theatrical performances employ telecommunications networks and multisensory elements to conceive new communities of spectatorship in the theater and gallery alike. The programming committee is thrilled to host Robert Whitman on the 50th anniversary of the founding of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), a vibrant community of artists that redefined what constituted art in the twentieth century.

Attendance is free and open to the public, with a small reception of wine and hors d’oeuvres following the Q&A.

DOUG ISCHAR at SBU Manhattan

20140502_Doug_IscharFriday, May 2, 2014
3:00pm  |  room 321A

Doug Ischar is a contemporary artist known for his work in documentary photography, installation art, sound art and video art. Following large multi-media installations such as Orderly (1994) and Wake (1996) Ischar turned to more minimal forms. His 1997 work for InSite (San Diego/Tijuana) used a high school basketball court as locale for a multimedia meditation of adolescent homosexual desire. His 2001 work ground uses twenty-four channels of audio to replicate the sound of a gallery floor being swept. His 2005 public installation Water Music explores the relationship between personal and artistic histories of the Pacific Rim cultures in which Ischar lived as a child. Since 2008, he has been producing highly complex single-channel videos around issues of cross-generational male intimacy and psychological/social loss.

Doug Ischar will be speaking and screening three recent video works, come lontano (2010), Alone With You (2011), Tristes Tarzan (2013) currently showing at the Whitney Biennial 2014.

Stony Brook Manhattan is located at 387 Park Ave South, New York, NY 10016. Use entrance around the corner at 101-113 East 27th Street.

Yvonne Rainer, The Aging Dancer and Her Dis/contents

Friday, March 28, 6:30 p.m.
Yvonne Rainer, The Aging Dancer and Her Dis/contents

The lecture will include autobiographical accounts and excerpts from a documentation of Rainer’s most recent choreography Assisted Living: Do You Have Any Money? (2013), an amalgam of movement and speech derived from a number of different sources, including Rainer’s own choreographic imagination and her collaborative process with her dancers. The piece presents new challenges for the group in that they are required to deliver long monologues while performing intricate steps. Following her customary penchant for radical juxtaposition, Rainer has taken the risky route of pairing vaudevillian pratfalls with solemn socio-economic analyses. The dire times in which we live seem to demand such an approach.

Admission:
Free and open to the public

Date:
Friday, 6:30 p.m. March 28, 2014

Place:
Stony Brook Manhattan
101 East 27th Street, 3rd Floor,
