Well, now we know what we’re going to do on our next day off! This exhibit will be open through 12/20 so be sure to check it out if you’re in town before then. From SVA:
Regardless of what they studied, where they settled down or what they went on to do in their careers, all SVA graduates have one thing in common: the experience of living and working in New York City. Fittingly then, this fall’s alumni exhibition at the SVA Chelsea Gallery, “Street Smart: The Intersection of Art and Design in the City,” up from Saturday, November 18, through Wednesday, December 20, is dedicated to art and design made for or about the urban environment. The works on view—including site-specific and interactive installations, photographs, paintings, sculptures, designs and illustrations—are challenging, multilayered and politically and socially engaged, much like city life itself.
“Street Smart” features more than 50 new and recent works by an international selection of established and emerging alumni artists: Kevin Amato (BFA 2003 Photography), Steven Bindernagel (MFA 2006 Fine Arts), Karlos Carcamo (BFA 1997 Fine Arts), Luiz d’Orey (BFA 2016 Illustration), Michael De Feo (BFA 1995 Graphic Design), Brian Douglas, a.k.a. Elbow Toe (BFA 1994 Illustration), Natan Dvir (MFA 2010 Photography, Video and Related Media), Carol Fabricatore (MFA 1992 Illustration as Visual Essay), Timothy Goodman (BFA 2007 Graphic Design), Katsumi Hayakawa (MFA 1999 Fine Arts), Robert Herman (MPS 2009 Digital Photography), Natasha Jen (BFA 2003 Graphic Design), Hyesu Lee (MFA 2011 Illustration as Visual Essay), Susan Leopold (BFA 1982 Fine Arts), Dina Litovsky (MFA 2010 Photography, Video and Related Media), SaveArtSpace‘s Justin Aversano and Travis Rix (both BFA 2014 Photography), Hannah Smith Allen (MFA 2007 Photography, Video and Related Media) and Amy Wu (MFA 2015 Interaction Design).
