The vision of Division of Continuing Education faculty member and independent curator David Gibson will be on display in a trio of current and upcoming exhibitions he has put together in New York City and Massachusetts. On view this month: the two-painter show “Boundless: John Berens and Jac Lahav” at 532 Gallery, 532 West 25th Street, through Saturday, October 4; and “Beauty’s Burden”—a group exhibition, co-curated by Gibson and Jennifer Junkermeier, that features work by alumnus Scott Kiernan (BFA 2003 Fine Arts)—at the Ernest Rubenstein Gallery of the Educational Alliance, 197 East Broadway, September 18 – October 31. Gibson’ upcoming curatorial projects include “New York-New England: New Talent 2008,” a group show that includes work by Lisa Elmaleh (BFA 2007 Photography), at University of Massachusetts’ Hampden Gallery in Amherst, November 7 – December 7.
Another member of the SVA community with a hand on the curatorial tiller is artist Collier Schorr (BFA 1985 Communication Arts). She has assembled “Freeway Balconies,” an exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin. On view through Sunday, October 5, the group show borrows its title from a poem by Allen Ginsburg and features work by Schorr and fellow alumnus Rachel Rabhan (MFA 2006 Photography, Video and Related Media).
