Peter Hristoff is the Artist in Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In this interview for the MetKids Blog, he picks his favorite artworks and offers insights on visiting the museum, including an assignment he gives himself.  To learn more about Peter’s work, read his statement about the museum’s influence on the monumental work he’s developing. One highlight: “Being able to spend so much time at the Met has provided me with great lessons in history; I see the fluidity of influences across borders, how one culture’s artifacts are reinterpreted by another. Pagan figures in one gallery evolve into saints in another; Islamic motifs that appear in ceramics are then repeated on a European fabric.”

Faculty update: Keith Mayerson has debuted the catalog for My American Dream, his vast solo survey at Marlborough ChelseaThe first printing is 200 copies, signed and dated. It has installation views, Keith’s notes about the exhibition, and every painting – and it reads like a comic narrative. It’s available at cost for $75 through Marlborough.

Keith Mayerson opened My American Dream, a solo show and retrospective at Marlborough Chelsea! Like a bride’s attire, the show combines “Something old, something new, something borrowed!” Keith’s new paintings mix with “vintage” work dating back to 1997 – including paintings borrowed back from private collections and museums! It’s a museum-level show for a museum-level artist.

What have SVACE faculty members been up to?  We have some major updates from Keith Mayerson, Jason Stopa, and Viktor Koen!

First, open up Artforum to see the full-page ad for Keith Mayerson’s upcoming solo show at Marlborough Chelsea! This will be Keith’s first solo outing since his breakthrough appearance in America is Hard to See at the Whitney Museum. The ad seems to express that Keith will pursue his signature salon-style density, which was highly successful in the 2014 Whitney Biennial.
