The International Studio & Curatorial Program announces Brooklyn Commons 2018, an ongoing discussion series that presents intellectual and artistic pairings between the established Brooklyn-based artist community and ISCP artists in residence. This series, initiated in 2012, puts artists in conversation who have not shared a dialogue in the past, and focuses on cultural practitioners living and working in Brooklyn, both long- and short-term. 

Ulrike Müller and Taloi Havini will discuss the activation of history and the socio-political dimensions in their work. 

Ulrike Müller (born 1971, Brixlegg, Austria) has been a co-editor of the queer feminist journal LTTR and organized Herstory Inventory100 Feminist Drawings by 100 Artists, a collaborative project that was exhibited together with objects from the respective collections at the Brooklyn Museum and at the Kunsthaus Bregenz in 2012. In 2010, Müller represented Austria in the Cairo Biennial. Recent solo exhibitions include Callicoon Fine Arts, 2016; Museum Moderner Kunst Foundation Ludwig Vienna (mumok), 2015; and Kunstraum Lakeside, 2014. Her work was included in the Whitney Biennial in 2017. 

Taloi Havini (born 1981, Bougainville, the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea) utilizes a wide variety of media to explore issues about keeping inherited knowledge systems alive across time and place. She engages with collections and archives and often responds to these experiences with experimental installations and exhibitions at institutions including the Sharjah Biennial 13; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; and Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane.

Suzanne McClelland and Sonia Louise Davis will speak about the intersection of sound, language and abstraction. 

Suzanne McClelland (born 1959, Jacksonville, Florida) has exhibited her work extensively in the United States and abroad, including solo presentations at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia; and the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Connecticut. McClelland has twice participated in the Whitney Biennial, in 1993 and 2014, and was included in the New Museum of Contemporary Art’s exhibition NYC 1993Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star. Currently, she teaches at the Department of Visual Arts at Columbia University. She has been a faculty member in the Masters of Fine Arts program at the School of Visual Arts since 1997. 

Sonia Louise Davis (born 1988, New York City) engages improvisation across installation, performance and writing. She has performed at the Whitney Museum of American Art and published in Women & Performance: a journal of feminist theory. Recent exhibitions include Visitor Welcome Center, Los Angeles; and Sadie Halie Projects, Minneapolis. Davis attended Wesleyan University and the Whitney Independent Study Program.

Haim Steinbach and Remy Jungerman will consider the recontextualization of existing objects, and the cultural meanings of display.

Haim Steinbach (born 1944, Rehovot, Israel) has exhibited his work consistently at major museums worldwide. In 2013, the Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College in New York presented an important solo exhibition of the artist’s work since the early 1970s, entitled once again the world is flat, which traveled to Kunsthalle Zurich and Serpentine Gallery, London. In 1999, his work was presented at the 47th Venice Biennale. The artist’s work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Tate Modern, London; Guggenheim Museum, New York; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and more.

Remy Jungerman's (born 1959, Suriname) recent work is entangled with his Surinamese roots and relates to global citizenship. He has exhibited works at Prospect.3, New Orleans; Brooklyn Museum; Rennie Collection at Wing Sang, Vancouver; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Havana Biennale; Museum Bamako, Mali; Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe; and the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA).

Brooklyn Commons is organized by Kari Conte, ISCP Director of Programs and Exhibitions.

These events will be live streamed on ISCP's Facebook Live
