In cased you missed it here are some pictures of the last months exhibition Queer Art: Gender and Identity. The show was curated by Terrence Donlin, and junior BOAD major. Below is his statement about the show:

Rosa Middleton, a Queer artist and illustrator, was asked to define what “queer” meant to her.  Her response was the inspiration for this exhibition:

 “Queer is an Umbrella with so many people standing beneath it that it would be impossible to make a comprehensive definition without someone getting angry about it.It’s a word that scares a lot of people but it can also be quite misunderstood.It’s a word for anyone who doesn’t feel they fit into the box that they’ve been given. And for many it is about making your own box to tick.It’s about self-realization, and taking all the small pieces of yourself to form one complete human being.It’s celebrating your skin but realizing we are all the same underneath.”

    And while the role of Queer individuals and the importance of the masculine and feminine may shift and change, the purpose of this exhibition is to look at how these things are affecting the art and artists in this moment in time. It is to look at how Queer artists here at Ringling College are producing work that reflects their own individual experiences of/in/with the Queer community.

Hello Everyone! Come on out for tonight’s opening at the Crossley from 7-9PM. What Are We Talking About- An Exhibition from Abroad.  The show is on view from August 30th to September 6th.

The show presents works of two fine arts seniors Natalie Lerner and Makary Malinouski, who both attended New York Studio Residency Program (NYSRP) last spring. In addition Natalie Lerner is showing work from Yale Norfolk School of Art Summer Program, which she took part in this summer.

 

At the New York Studio Residency Program student artists carry a self- directed studio practice while having studio visits with art critics and practicing artists. In its core the NYSRP is more similar to a graduate program rather than an undergraduate one, requiring much self-motivation. The artist has to face a choice of acting or not acting more so than in a project-based scholastic atmosphere.

 

The Yale Norfolk Summer School of Art is a six week residency where a student artists work on an estate in an isolated, intensive program. Students are working with Yale faculty and graduate students to create a body of work through photography, painting, and printmaking courses. Visiting artists come in and both hold lectures, run workshops, and participate in individual studio visits to provide a rich critical discourse for the students

Alex Ellena is exhibiting works upon the beliefs of good luck and bad luck, using bad luck along with good luck to create a paradox. This paradox shows that no matter how much luck there is without bad there is no good. Freddie Lamoreaux II is installing work made of and about hair, in hopes to express his position upon a material with huge social and cultural significance. Dillon Diaz will be incorporating his work for viewers to experience an epiphany, within his metaphors of death created through drawings and paintings. Together they will attempt to create an overall atmosphere of what they believe humanity has either been in fear of, or conformed to over time and create a conversation of what is necessary or unnecessary within society.”
