School of Visual Arts (SVA) presents “Every Once Sometimes Now,” a thesis exhibition by students in the MFA Fine Arts Department. Curated by Ron Segev, gallerist at Thierry Goldberg Gallery in New York, and assistant curator Richard Goldstein, the exhibition will be on view January 13–28, 2012 at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th Floor, New York City. Opening Reception will be held Thursday, January 19, 2012, from 6pm to 8pm.


The exhibition documents the merging, mixing and cross-referencing of mediums and materials that drives some of today’s most ambitious artists. “Hailing from different backgrounds, professional experiences and practices, these eight women and six men embody an approach to art-making that is moving in multiple directions simultaneously,” Segev explains.


“Pluralism is nothing new, but in the past few years emerging artists seem to have embraced it to a degree in which it becomes subject matter,” says Segev. “In a sense, this mostly intuitive interdisciplinary process is both embracing and reacting against a world that is saturated with visual clutter, where images are tagged, tweeted about and uploaded to Tumblr in an instant. Artists, like the rest of us, make use of ‘the cloud’ as source material, as a place to connect with their peers and as an exhibition space for their work—an endless visual library, where one could borrow an image, do something with it, retweet and repeat.”


Participating artists include: Eleni Beristianou, Chie, Eun Jung Kim, Sharon Kirby, Jonas Lara, Amelia Midori Miller, Augustus Nazzaro, Jenny Santos, Heewon Seo, Kim Smith, Paul Hunter Speagle, Miryana Todorova, Aken Wahl and James Brendan Williams.


“Every Once Sometimes Now” is the first of two thesis exhibitions in the MFA Fine Arts Department. The second exhibition, “Just The Tip,” will be on view February 24–March 10, 2012 at the Visual Arts Gallery.


The Visual Arts Gallery, located at 601 West 26 Street between 11th and 12th Avenues, 15th floor, is open Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm; closed on Sundays and public holidays. Admission is free. The gallery is accessible by wheelchair. For further information call 212.592.2145.


The MFA Fine Arts Department at SVA offers specialization in painting, sculpture, installation, printmaking, new media or mixed media, while fostering an ideology of stylistic pluralism. The two-year, 60-credit degree program encourages artists to follow a personal course of intellectual and expressive evolution as they experiment with diverse artistic persuasions, discover new aspects of their creative abilities and develop greater technical mastery.


Led by department chair David L. Shirey, the program features a roster of internationally renowned artists as faculty members, including Polly Apfelbaum, Jake Berthot, Petah Coyne, Kenji Fujita, Marilyn Minter, Amy Smith-Stewart, Gary Stephan, Jackie Winsor and Fred Wilson, among others.


Graduates from the program include: Katherine Bernhardt, Luca Buvoli, Andy Collins, Steve DeFrank, Inka Essenhigh, Kate Gilmore, Johan Grimonprez, Michelle Lopez, Gary Peterson, Brian Rutenberg, Sarah Sze and Phoebe Washburn, among others.
