Art and Art Professions



Duane Linklater/From Our Hands
With Ethel Linklater and Tobias Linklater
This exhibition features a series of new works including a large-scale architectural intervention that runs through all five galleries. This structural response explores the internal language of walls, the spaces for the Indigenous body, and how spaces of inclusion can be extended. The introduction of works by Duane’s late paternal grandmother Ethel Linklater and his twelve-year old son Tobias unearths his familial framework, the migration and exchange of knowledge and ideas, and their consequences. This exhibition is presented in collaboration with Mercer Union, Toronto.

On view December 8, 2016 - Februrary 18, 2017.
Opening Reception: December 7, 2016, 6-8pm

Project Space
Performing Fashion: New York City
An exhibition exploring the performative aspects of dress and the body as enacted by individuals and groups in New York City. The selection of objects spans nearly 40 years and is representative of distinct subcultures within the creative and cultural hub of New York. The items on display are multi-faceted in their relationship to performance. They encompass concepts from the stage to the street, the personal, artistic, sexual, and political. 

On view January 17 - February 2, 2017. A reception will be held on January 18 from 5-7pm. The curators will also host a panel discussion with performers of fashion from the worlds of art, music, burlesque, and design, which will take place on Monday, January 30, from 6:30-7:30pm. 

Grey Art Gallery
Inventing Downtown: Artist-Run Galleries in New York City, 1952-1965
NYU Steinhardt faculty member Melissa Rachleff-Burtt has curated a major exhibition in conjunction with the Grey Art Gallery that examines the New York art scene during the fertile years between the apex of Abstract Expressionism and the rise of Pop Art and MInimalism. This is the first show ever to survey this vital period from the vantage point of its artist-run galleries- crucibles of experimentation and innovation that radically changed the art world. The exhibition includes work by artists ranging from such well known figures as Mark di Suvero, Jim Dine, Red Grooms, Allan Kaprow, Alex Katz, Yaoi Kusama, Claes Oldenburg, and Yoko Ono to artists who deserve to be better known, such as Ed Clark, Emilio Cruz, Lis Dodd, Rosalyn Drexler, Sally Haelet Drummond, Jean Follett, Lester Johnson, Boris Lurie, Jan Müller, and Aldo Tambellini.
On view January 10 through April 1, 2017.

CAVE(S) is an exhibition featuring work of NYU MFA student Jerry J. Adams '18. Jerry’s work focuses on the expression of memory, fragility of the human experience and possible future spaces that the human mind may inhabit, ultimately questioning the parameters of freewill. CAVE(S) are spaces in which the subjects are suspended in the artists mind. These images try to visualize the process of memory and the fragility of reality. Curated by VAA MA candidate Marguerite Wynter '18 with the help of the VAA Curatorial Collective. On view 24/7 through Janaury 29, 2017.
