Spring 2020 Thesis presentations: Marielis Garcia

This new performance is especially poignant in these times as I am a.) trying to understand performance, even if I can’t share a space with my audience, b.) looking at the fragility of presence via digital capture and c.) embracing the beautiful and harrowing stuckness we are all experiencing.

here, then & now originally set out to describe how traditional documentation both illuminates and limits performative works. Through the process of creation, two fundamental questions emerged: what is a digital dance performance and can it invite a sense of kinesthetic awareness in its viewers? This work aims to explore the complexities of performance, attempts to document a happening and it’s inevitable unrepeatable-ness, and also asks the question: where does the artwork exist?

Please join me next week, if you can.

I am experiencing sadness, empathetic compassion for many loved ones and finding joy in the smallest of pleasures; I hope you are finding peace, support and inspiration.
With Love!
Marielis

04/30/20 Sydney Shen – [DIAP] MFA artist talk – online

Please join us for a online talk by the artist Sydney Shen

Location: The [DIAP] Zoom Room

Thursday April 30th

Time 10:30AM – 11:30AM

The presentation is free and open to the public.

Sydney Shen’s (b. 1989, New Jersey) sculptures probe contradictions such as fear and wonder, pain and pleasure, sacred and profane. She destabilizes motifs of the macabre, especially those which test the limits of the body, to evoke ambivalent states. Her work is informed by a range of arcane to everyday sources: like Chinese opera, Medieval literature, and video games. The forms her work takes are as eclectic; she frankensteins found and fabricated materials to create abject, droll, and ludicrously poetic arrangements.
Recent solo exhibitions include Onion Master, New Museum, New York; Every Good Boy Does Fine, Sophie Tappeiner, Vienna. Shen is a 2019-2020 Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace resident. Shen received the 2019 Jerome Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship, Queens Museum, New York; and the 2018 New Works Grant, Queens Art Fund, New York. She graduated from The Cooper Union in 2011.
