  • “Sóu-Lí/Sound,” an exhibition of works by 48 South Korean artists who graduated from the College. Curated by sculptor, installation artist and alumnus Jong Yuen Ahn (MFA 1992 Fine Arts), the exhibition focuses on three ranges of sound: high frequency, human range and low frequency; and “Wrest-Stops Along the Intra-State,” an MFA Fine Arts Department exhibition tackling themes such as religion, sexual desire, family life and sentimentality. Curated by Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt. Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, through Saturday, July 22.

  • “Abstract & Real,”
    an exhibition that examines the boundaries between representation and abstraction. The works of art include finely rendered photo-derived paintings, an exploration of the intersection of fantasy and reality and a time-based notation journal arranged to create fundamental geometric forms; and “Artist Teacher/Teacher Artist,” an exhibition curated by faculty member Michael Filan that features a variety of media by graduating students in the MAT Art Education Department. Their work addresses the challenges of being a teacher and preserving their own devotion to being artists themselves. SVA Gallery, 209 East 23rd Street, through Tuesday, July 25.

  • “Persona: Personal and Public,” an exhibition of photography, painting and video by current students, all addressing contemporary issues of gender and identity; “Social Layers, Formal Times,” sculpture and video installations that address the process of making art, contrasting political and personal approaches with the contemplative and conceptual; “Scale,” an exhibition that examines the pictorial issues involved in large-scale composition; and “Postpartum,” which spotlights the work of recent MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department graduates, focusing on the theme of human interaction. Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, July 28 – August 12; Reception: Tuesday, August 1, 6 – 8pm.
