The BFA Fine Arts Department is opening a trio of exhibitions in the Visual Arts Gallery, displaying new work from its students and recent alumni. The first show, “Body Modifications,” is curated by the department’s emeritus chair Jeanne Siegel and features work that stems from the theme of body-related identification. The next exhibition, titled “Architectural Spaces,” is curated by faculty member Gary Sherman and showcases sculptural installations that use architectural references, all created by members of the class of 2007. Finally, for “Sculpture,” faculty member and curator Andrew Ginzel has gathered work by both recent graduates and current students, ranging from a crib for a post-apocalyptic puppy to a surreal botanical sculpture.
All three shows are on view at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, October 5 – 20; there will be an opening reception for the artists on Tuesday, October 9, 6 – 8pm.
