The 2014 Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition at Socrates Sculpture Park


You are cordially invited to the 2014 Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition at Socrates Sculpture Park, which will open Sunday September 7th from 3-6 pm followed by a BBQ with dj's.

During the 3 month residency, I built a 30 by 28 ft facade placed horizontally on the floor. The direction in which the facade is layed out follows the grid of Manhattan. As of the day of the opening the sculpture is open for people to sit or walk on and to interact with.

Address
32-01 Vernon Boulevard
Long Island City, Queens at the intersection of Broadway
Subway: Take the N and Q train to the Broadway stop in Queens and walk eight blocks west on Broadway (toward the East River).
Bus: Q103, Q104 to Broadway and Vernon Boulevard (Monday-Friday only)

Artists
Matt Callinan, Jordan Griska, Meredith James, Fitzhugh Karol, Lilian Kreutzberger, Zaq Landsberg, Heidi Lau, Amanda Long, Christopher Mahonski, Kimberly Mayhorn, Eto Otitigbe, Brie Ruais, Adward Schexnayder, David Wilson, Dane Winkler.

About the work at Socrates Sculpture Park
Lilian Kreutzberger's white sprawling installation lies flat and unevenly overlooking the east river. Laid horizontally at ground level, Untitled attempts to replicate and fragment a 20th century "wonder" - the modern skyscraper. The grid-like facade of appears to have recently toppled from across the East River, but is now bleached of all distinguishing details.
The two-dimensionality of Kreutzberger's piece raises questions about the relationship between conceptual models and their actual execution. The quasi-literal reconstruction of this architectural relief aims for the efficiency, reason, logic, and perfection of the archetype.
However, in comparison to the source, Untitled feels human and light. Creating tension between intention and reality, the concept and the reconstruction, Untitled implicates the pursuit of ideals with eventual failure and collapse.

Socrates Sculpture Park
The annual Emerging Artist Fellowship (EAF) Exhibition is a cornerstone of Socrates Sculpture Park's visual arts programming and is widely acclaimed for the ambition, breadth, and innovation of the works on view. Featuring fifteen artists, EAF14 is a survey of the compelling and diverse state of sculpture today.
Each EAF14 artist has engaged with the larger narrative of public space in a dynamic and daring way, building upon Socrates Sculpture Park's goal to present socially aware, inspiring art in the public realm.
EAF14 artists were selected through a high competitive process that attracted a broad field of nearly 300 candidates, reviewed by the park's curatorial advisors Anne Barlow (Executive Director, Art in General) and Joe Sheftel (Joe Sheftel Gallery, New York). Selected EAF14 artists were awarded a 2014 Emerging Artist Fellowship, including 24/7 access to the park's outdoor studio and facilities, as well as the financial, technical, and curatorial support to realize his or her most ambitious work possible.

   

Participation with 2 drawings Tower of Babel/Panopticon in the groupshow (In)constancy of Space

(IN)CONSTANCY OF SPACE
Collective exhibition of Dutch and Croatian artists
The Ring Gallery
September 24 - October 12, 2014
Opening: September 24 at 8 p.m.

The Ring Gallery and the Croatian Association of Artists (HDLU) have pleasure to invite you to the opening of (IN)CONSTANCY OF SPACE, a collective exhibition showing the artworks by Dutch and Croatian artists of younger and middle generation.

The exhibition will be held at the Ring Gallery, in the building owned by the Croatian Association of Artists, from the 24th September to 12th October.

The Opening is on the 24th September, 2014, at 8 p.m. The exhibition will be officially opened by Her Excellency Ellen Berends, ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Croatia.

The exhibition shows the artworks by Dutch and Croatian visual artists who express themselves in the media of video, video-installations, ambiental installations, animations, strip cartoon, graphic arts, painting and drawings. The Netherlands and Croatia are two countries with different historical, cultural and geographical determinants, but at the same time they are the members of the EU and thus make an interesting complementary duo.

The exhibition (IN)CONSTANCY OF SPACE focuses on the way contemporary Dutch and Croatian artists deal with architecture and the spaces it shapes. In their works of art, buildings are not only attractive themes, but they carry various symbolic, sociological, psychological or ideological connotations. The exhibition also touches on the issue of the position of architecture and its spaces in the mind of modern man.

The exhibition puts the artworks into 4 categories
- Life, Power and Death
- On the Boundary between Utopia, Fantasy and Dystopia
- Claustrophobia and Phases
- Visions and Boundaries


The following artists will present their artworks in the exhibition: Shigeo Arikawa, Anke van den Berg, Tanja Deman, Darko Fritz, Arend Groosman, Tea Hatadi, Willem van der Hofstede, Lilian Kreutzberger, Margareta Lekic, Gabriel Lester, Maja Markovic, Ferenc Molnar, Zoltan Novak, Vedran Perkov, Sara Rajaei, Ana Sladetic, Rik Smits, Robert Simrak, Goran Skofic, Rob Voerman and Danijel Zezelj.

Curators and authors of the concept: Vanja Babic & Neva Lukic.

The exhibition is accompanied by a lavishly produced catalog with the curators' texts and the photographs of artworks, and has been kindly supported by funding from the Ministry of Culture of The Republic of Croatia, City Office for Education, Culture and Sports Zagreb, Netherlands Embassy in Zagreb and Stroom Den Haag.

MANA contemporary open Studio Sunday September 29th 2013, 1-6 pm

You are cordially invited to the Mana contemporary open Studio Sunday September 29th, 1-6 pm. During the event there will be six timely exhibition openings, live performances, and 70+ open artist studios. Transportation from Milk Studios (450 West 15th Street, New York) to Mana Contemporary.

The past 3 months I have worked as one of the first Artists at Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation Residency at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City. During the residency I continued the project 'Engineering Hope', a project in which I look at the materialization of abstract models in particular in relation to architecture and urban planning. This resulted in a new body of painting-like 2 dimensional relief-objects.

Jersey City, NJ 0730
(Journal Square stop on the Path-Train)
See www.artmanafest.com for more information about the event.

My studio is on the 5th floor. Looking forward to seeing you the 29th!

Parsons Fine Arts MFA Thesis Exhibition : May 17 - 25

T: 212-255-5793

Parsons The New School for Design is pleased to announce 'The Intelligence of Things', the 2013 Parsons Fine Arts MFA Thesis Show curated by Wendy Vogel and Jess Wilcox. The exhibition features new works by Maricruz Alarcón, Elysa D. Batista, Lauren Denitzio, Sarah Allen Eagen, John Furer, Brenda Goldstein, Bing Han, Grace Hong, Sara Jimenez, Lilian Kreutzberger, Wilson Parry, Pieter Paul Pothoven, Isaac Pool, Jessica Posner, G. Scott Raffield, Kaitlynn Redell, Christine Howard Sandoval, Chaney Lane Trotter, Michael Watson, and Ilyn Wong.

For a growing number of contemporary artists and thinkers, the ontology of objects has prompted new investigations and modes of making. Perhaps in reaction to the dominance of screens and images in our daily life, artistic practice has embraced the object-as-thing: estranged, powerful and physical. A like minded investment in materiality can be observed among the 20 artists in this exhibition. The Intelligence of Things presents these artists' practices, which attest to the importance of the object in contemporary life. In these works, spanning different aesthetics and mediums - painting, performance, photography, video, sculpture and installation - objects become ciphers for memory, desire and fantasy. Far from simple gestures, the things in these works articulate their place as icons and bodily analogs, and as protagonists in interiors, architectural spaces and the scope of history.

The exhibition privileges the role of the displayed objects over any overarching curatorial concept. As a title The Intelligence of Things both emphasizes this approach and illuminates these artworks' powerful effect and affect. That is to say that following Kant's purposeful purposelessness, these artworks upend our notions of a thing's effect or intent, and each one has a particular character, demeanor, and accent - whether fierce or foppish. The Intelligence of Things brings together a group of works that resist clear categorization and do not adhere to rigid stylistic doctrines. The exhibition and the works therein, rather, critically explore how things and human subjects together produce meaning in the world.
