The Samek Art Museum Presents:
DJ Shakey: Julie Covello aka DJ Shakey is part of New York City’s Dj elite and has spun at virtually every metro area nightclub that contributes to the culture. Gas Zappers by Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung: In this video about global warming Hung draws on the artistic strategies of photomontage, political satire, humor, and surrealism that combines the unlikely influences of Dadaist John Heartfield, 19th-century satirist Tom Nast, contemporary video game artist Cory Arcangel, and electronic remix music artists. Falling Girl by Scott Snibbe & Annie Loui: This video, projected on the outside of the Pajama Factory, presents a dream-like story in which a young girl falls from a skyscraper. During her miraculously slow descent that takes a lifetime, the girl interacts with the people in each window, each vignette an episode of her life that ends when she lands, an aged woman.
Marketing Mamas: The Provocative Woman in French Poster Art
Presented by the Lore Degenstein Gallery at Susquehanna University
Throughout the 20th-century visual advertising has used the tantalizing image of a beautiful woman, sometimes provocative in presentation and certainly her request that the public take note of her as she makes her pitch to sell a product. That French art has innovatively employed the richly produced poster is well known to collectors and to the public that has “enjoyed” the medium since its rise to artistic status in the 1890s. It is the specificity of focus on the present exhibition, “Marketing Mamas,” that explores more the subject of the advertisers’ audience than that of the artists themselves, generating an interest in the visual methods necessary to convey their messages.
Presented by Converge Gallery
All contemporary artists skate on the surface of humanity’s impossibly deep history. Ekaterina Panikanova uses civilization’s trajectory as a medium. She incorporates direct evidence of mankind’s gradual awakening and accumulated knowledge into her own poetic vision. Here, information becomes a sort of spiritual, intellectual landscape. Panikanova’s work is informed by civilization’s constant ponderings. Nature stands indifferently in its center. Ekaterina Panikanova was born in Russia and lives and works in Rome.
“In Russia, there is a difference between an icon which has been ‘prayed to’ and one which has not; a book that has been read acquires the same energy as an icon which has been worshiped.” – Ekaterina Panikanova
