Faculty Updates

Saturday, 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.”

Storytellers

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015

One particularly promising innovation of our fall 2015 semester is the addition of courses from SVA’s MFA Visual Narrative program.  These include two Risograph printing courses taught in the brand new Risograph printing studio and a storytelling class called InFORMed by Story.  Their respective instructors, Pan Terzis and Ryan Weber, recently shared lessons and insights in two different outlets.

Pan Terzis sat down for an interview on SVA’s RISOLAB blog.  Pan shares his initiation with Risograph printing, and the fascination that followed. He also reveals the astonishing efficiency of Riso printing:

“I managed to print a 36 page book in an edition of 150 with 52 layers of color in less than twelve hours. To Screenprint that many colors with that quantity would take weeks of backbreaking labor. I was immediately hooked.”

Ryan Weber recorded an interview with SVA’s Story: visualized blog.  He covers many ideas, including the fun and freedom of self-publishing.  He also outlines a goal of his upcoming course:

“It’s about opening a discussion and dialogue about form can inform story and story can inform form; how those things can work together.  Rather than just writing something and plopping it into a template.”
