July Four

July 11, 2008

Summertime brings a spate of lively group shows to the city’s galleries, and for the month of July (going into the beginning of August) the Visual Arts Gallery is presenting a collection of four diverse exhibitions. On view right now are “Ambient,” an exhibition of sculpture, video and photography works by current students and recent alumni, all focusing on contemporary approaches to interactive and time-based works, curated by Richard Brooks, the assistant director of student galleries; “Boundaries,” which brings together performance, sculpture and video by current students and recent alumni who use their artwork as a tool for self-examination and intellectual inquiry, also curated by Brooks; “Cenacle: Reverie Refurbishing Revelry and Vice Versa,” an eclectic collection of work by current MFA Fine Arts Department students, curated by faculty member Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt; and “Figure It Out,” an exhibition of paintings by four graduate students, featuring abstract and representational approaches in two-dimensional form, curated by Jessica Hale (MFA 2005 Illustration as Visual Essay), the administrative manager of student galleries.

All four exhibitions are on display at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, through Saturday, August 9.
