Faculty Updates

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from Keren Moscovitch, Emily WeinerElizabeth SaylesMatt Rota, and Valerie Smaldone.

Keren Moscovitch opens up to Sarah Cho of NY Artists Equity about art, intimacy, ideas. Keren is an artist, faculty member, and assistant director of special programs at SVA, and for years, she has intertwined her artistic output, teaching, and leadership.  One highlight from the interview: “If I didn’t teach, I would have a very different relationship to my art practice. Working with students reminds me of what it takes [to be an artist] and the advice and feedback I give them will resonate in my head…”

Emily Weiner is featured in a New York Times story about alternative and artist-run galleries. The feature is a feather in the cap for a faculty member whose diverse experiences as an artist and gallerist led her to the course, “Contemporary Painting Lab: Artists and Techniques of the 21st Century.” Her view on the art world? “Artists are the tastemakers now. We don’t wait for galleries to pick us up.”
