“Every Once Sometimes Now,” the first of two thesis exhibitions by students in the MFA Fine Arts Department, is on view until January 28 at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26 Street, 15th floor, New York City. Curated by Ron Segev, gallerist at Thierry Goldberg Gallery in New York, and assistant curator Richard Goldstein, the exhibition includes work in various media by Eleni Beristianou, Chie, Eun Jung Kim, Sharon Kirby, Jonas Lara, Amelia Midori Miller, Augustus Nazzaro, Jenny Santos, Heewon Seo, Kim Smith, Paul Hunter Speagle, Miryana Todorova, Aken Wahl and James Brendan Williams. The second exhibition, “Just The Tip,” will be on view February 24 – March 10 at the Visual Arts Gallery.
The exhibition documents the merging, mixing and cross-referencing of mediums and materials that drives some of today’s most ambitious artists. In addition to exploring pluralism, the works in “Every Once Sometimes Now” embrace and react “against a world that is saturated with visual clutter, where images are tagged, tweeted about and uploaded to Tumblr in an instant,” says Segev.
