Faculty Updates

June 3rd, 2017

What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from course instructors Jade Doskow, Elise Engler, Emily Weiner, and Pan Terzis!

Jade Doskow will speak at SVA about Lost Utopias, her ongoing photography and book project. Doskow is known for her rigorously composed and eerily poetic images that examine the intersection of people, nature and time. Her talk is part of the i3: Images, Ideas, Inspiration lecture series, which features photographers and industry experts, presented by SVA MPS Digital Photography.

Elise Engler is featured in The Times, a group exhibition at the FLAG Art Foundation that takes The New York Times as its point of departure. The Times includes over 80 artists, artist duos, and collectives who “use the ‘paper of record’ to address and reframe issues that impact our everyday lives,” according to the press release. Given Engler’s project, “First Radio Headlines Heard of the Day,” her daily documentations of news updates are perfect fit for the show – and above the fold.

Emily Weiner is featured in The In, With and Between Us at the Gerðarsafn – Kópavogur Art Museum, Iceland! Focused on four artists, including three MFA alumni from the School of Visual Arts, the show comprises “a research-based conversation around non-linear readings of place and time, language and translation.”

Pan Terzis opens up to The Comics Journal about printing, publishing, and politics in his collaborative practice. He writes, “Publishing other artists’ work has been extremely gratifying. I benefited early on from other people going out of their way to publish, promote, show, and sell my work so I feel I owe a debt of gratitude to the universe and it feels good to give other artists the same opportunity.”
