Keren Moscovitch returns to LABA NYC to premiere her project, “One More Way: Revolt!" A further development of work done during her recent residency, "Revolt" is a multi-channel, site-specific video installation that re-imagines a living text through performance and communal interpretation of intimate dialogue. In addition to running our Residencies programs, Keren is a faculty member and alum, so expect her to bring a broad spectrum of experience as a teacher, student, mentor, and more.
Magali Duzant launched “Light Blue Desire: A Manual for the Color Blue” at Printed Matter, NYC. The evening, which coincided with the recent very rare blue moon—featured a two-channel video of the moon filmed during this astronomical event. In addition, Duzant read from her recent publications “Light Blue Desire” and “I Looked & Looked,” which both explore our relationship to language, color, and the night sky. Meanwhile, be sure to catch Magali's project, What Is It, Then, Between Us, on view now at BRIC Arts Media.
John Ruggeri and SVA present “1987: Drawings by John Ruggeri,” on view February 8th through 28th at the Flatiron Project Space, with an opening reception February 8th, 6 to 8PM. The exhibition of approximately 80 drawings made between 1984 and 1987 documents the devastating early years of the AIDS crisis in New York City. The work, all charcoal drawings on Strathmore spiral-bound paper, were done in the bars, bathhouses, hospitals, prisons and public spaces of New York City and poignantly capture the anxiety etched onto the city and particularly to its often marginalized denizens. If you’re familiar with our drawing courses, then you’ve probably met John, whose “Drawing on Location” course takes students to draw at NYC landmarks, including Grand Central Station, South Street Seaport, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and more!
