Mary Valverde: Parables


Dates:
Thu Sep 11, 2014 18:00 - Sat Oct 04, 2014

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

In our attempt to learn, we revisit, retrace and repeat lessons until they become intrinsic gestures; our lives are a constant replaying of these lessons. We surround ourselves with materials that remind us of them, materials often charged with the residue of our intentions and the remnants of our actions. Through Parables, Valverde creates installations reminiscent of sacred spaces and material offerings. The works propose relationships between the forms, marks and measurements that intend to diagram the visceral.

Valverde’s work is driven by creative research. It is the chronicling, indexing and archiving of patterns to examine the ways in which they empower space, the body and the psyche. Valverde is interested in the systemic arrangements of objects, sounds and textures as manifested through the experience of music, materials and memories both within the individual and society.

Hwayong Jung's "Euphoria"


Dates:
Thu Sep 11, 2014 18:00 - Wed Sep 24, 2014

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Euphoria delicately reflects on the collapse of nature and the unique visual language of technology. The video gathers aesthetic forms and patterns found in our environment and recreates them using computer simulation. Code-generated terrain, endless mazes and ruptured images transform and blend into a giant organism that continuously changes and reproduces, giving rise to a new digital scene. This mesmerizing virtual sphere has no beginning and no end.

UR HEAD IS MINE, is a meeting of bodies for nights of revenge.

An intimate summer performance series that brings together [ gay and_or brown and_or fluid ] artists for nights of actions fueled by frustration. This is a takeover of spaces that we have historically been excluded from. We want to create an environment that facilitates the gathering of our communities, and a platform to voice our collective disillusionment with the systems we operate within. This is four (4) intensive weeks with no theoretical parameters, just our bodies at play.
