The summer exhibition season at SVA features shows that are part of the College’s student jury program. Every year, a jury of students from a wide array of departments review artwork submitted by their peers; the artists selected by the jury are then used by Richard Brooks, assistant director of student galleries, to curate a series of exhibitions.
Two of those juried exhibitions are opening at the beginning of June. “Between,” at the Westside Gallery, 131/141 West 21st Street, June 1 – 19, features sculpture, print and video work of a meditative and contemplative nature. The show includes pieces by Emilie Rolin Jacquemyns, Tamar Latzman, Adehla Lee, Laurel Lueders and Vered Sivan; there will be an opening reception for the artists on Wednesday, June 2, 5 – 7pm.
Just a few days later, “Social” opens at the SVA Gallery, 209 West 23rd Street. On view June 5 – 26, the exhibition focuses on painting, photography and sculpture by students and recent graduates, examining current global conditions and cultural legacies. Peter Buotte, Katie Cercone, Natan Dvir, Anat Even-Or, Elektra KB, Yuri Leonov, Elizabeth Libert and Sara Macel all have work in the show, which will have its opening reception on Monday, June 7, 5 – 7pm.
