Current MFA Project
Strange Wedding
Young Min Choi
On View: October 7 - October 10, 2015

Marriage is a conflation of two different beings. Centaur and Centauress, the begins that are trapped in between two different worlds, will have their marriage in the human world and it is being officiated and witnessed by a person who is already married, and a person who has a fear towards marriage. Paintings and sculptures will take roles in this project, as well.

Kurtis Green (Oil on Canvas): I got married not so long ago and I'm already officiating a marriage. How strange.

Centaur & Centauress (Mixed Media): Some guy brought us into the world of humans and we are getting married here. This is so strange.

Young Min Choi (Oil on Canvas): I am afraid of marriage and watching some creatures doing it. This is fucking strange.

Feels Like Home
David Bransfield
On View: August 23 - October 18, 2015

Feels Like Home is a series of paintings created by native New Yorker, David Bransfield, that celebrates one of the last neighborhoods in Manhattan that is resilient to gentrification: Chinatown. This exhibition examines the daily nuances and unseen beauty of an original and unqiue neighborhood, from graffiti to signage to streetscapes and the people that inhabit them.

all + nothing
Megan Davis and Nathan Freeman
Opening Reception: October 7, 2015, 5-7pm
The Commons

The exhibition wrestles with the establishment of simulacra - idols. As creators, we produce images, objects, and virtual works in order to seize something. We strive to capture moments of euphoria and melancholy. We desire to pause complex battles. We want to apprehend people and places we love too much or do not love enough. We have this need to simulate a moment or memory or human that is now absent from our world. We create work in order to revive something that no longer exists and will never exist again. Yet, once we complete the creation in idolization to our past, is this idol futile and meaningless compared to the actuality of its inspiration? The creation means all + nothing, all at the same time. 

The Girl's Room (Enter the Void)
Carol Civre, Genevieve Sachs, Maya Pollack, and Madeline Bach
Opening Reception: October 7, 2015, 5-7pm
Rosenberg Gallery

The exhibition takes its viewers into a matriarchal universe where the artists create a hyperreal environment through the female gaze. A creative environment is formed where people can not only experience the artwork, but can also be stimulated to enjoy good conversation and share ideas.
