Current SVA faculty and alumni exhibitions in New York City explore everything from nostalgia and race to tragedy and healing.
BFA Fine Arts faculty member Brooke Larsen presents “Guide for Shy Guys,” a new series of paintings that capture “stories and images of a time lost, forgotten or simply ignored.” Created over the last five years, Larsen’s latest works reflect nostalgia in its truest form through vintage-style images of women in suggestive, flirty poses. On view at Salomon Arts Gallery, 83 Leonard Street, 4th floor, through October 10.
MFA Fine Arts faculty member Fred Wilson offers “Sculptures, Paintings, and Installations: 2004-2014,” a collection of works (some of which have never been exhibited before) that challenge assumptions of race, culture and history. On view at Pace Gallery, 534 West 25th Street, through October 18.
For his third solo exhibition, Shai Kremer (MFA 2005 Photography, Video and Related Media) presents “World Trade Center: Concrete Abstract,” a new series of photos that candidly examines the destruction and rebuilding of the World Trade Towers. After gaining permission to be on site, Kremer spent the better part of two years photographing the construction of One World Trade Center; the result is a poignant reflection on time, tragedy and healing. On view at Julie Saul Gallery, 535 West 22nd Street, through October 25.
