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.”

What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from course instructors Charlie Ahearn, Jon Newman, and Richard Schulman.

Charlie Ahearn launched Scratch Ecstasy, a major solo exhibition now on view at PPOW Gallery in Chelsea. As PPOW describes it, the show “reflects the culmination of 25 years of Ahearn’s work mounting shows, publishing books, and making films, offering unparalleled insight into the people who defined the movement and its current influence on contemporary society.”

Jon Newman opened a two-person exhibition with Benny Leung in Hong Kong. Newman writes, “This project is a vehicle to help break the monotony of everyday working life in quiet, subtle moments scattered around the city of Hong Kong. Free-hand, tape patterns were made on discarded objects by both graphic designers. These patterns can be seen as a conversation between the two (even though they speak different languages); they communicated fluently through the graphic elements.”

Richard Schulman has published New Architecture London with Prestel, offering a photographic tour of London’s signature architecture landmarks, such as Rafael Viñoly’s “Walkie-Talkie”, “The Gherkin” by Foster + Partners, Renzo Piano’s mixed-use skyscraper, “The Shard,” and more.

Keren Moscovitch opens up about her new multidisciplinary project, “One More Way Files,” debuting this week at LABA, NYC! Keren writes:

“The way we tell stories and pass them between oral and written formats – is a collective erotic expression that works in concert with humankind’s intellectual and spiritual traditions.”
