comunicato stampa

This exhibition will feature sculpture, video, sound, painting, and drawing selected by the Director of the Neuberger Museum of Art, Thom Collins.

The exhibition features Kristen Galvin, Beth Letain, Jeff Pash, Sarah G. Sharp, and Alec Spangler, each of whom will receive an MFA in Visual Art from Purchase College this spring. Galvin and Sharp will also complete an MA in Modern and Contemporary Art, Criticism and Theory. The show will be on view from March sixth to March twenty-ninth at the White Box @ the Annex, 601 West 26th Street, 14th floor between 11th and 12th Avenues. The gallery is open from 11am to 6pm Tuesday through Saturday.

The diverse range of subject matter and materials presented in the exhibition reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the MFA program at Purchase College. Each artist offers a unique response to the complexities of contemporary culture, media and their interior worlds. Using sources appropriated from art, popular culture, television, and cult cinema classics, Kristen Galvin transforms the visual mishaps found in analog to digital video conversion to expose the politics of representation and reveal a specific sociological condition. Galvin received her BA from Brown University.

Beth Letain makes paintings that teeter between abstraction and representation. Using thickly impastoed paint and lush color, Letains’ paintings explore the implications of taking generosity and abundance to illogical extremes. Letain graduated from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 2005.

Jeff Pash creates multi-channel audio and video mash-ups from sources as diverse as Hollywood films, YouTube videos, and material leaked from the government. The resulting multi-media installations describe a space that lies between the virtual and the real and often touch on the politics of our day. Pash graduated in 2001 from Cornell University with a major in Film Studies. Sarah G. Sharp creates real and imaginary forms inspired by vernacular architecture and analog communication devices that address the formation of outsider communities. Common household materials and building supplies used in her drawings and sculptures evoke the urgency and invention required to build ones own world. Sharp attended the California College of the Arts and received her BA from the Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA in 1999.

Alec Spangler draws on memory and daydreams to develop virtual environments in his paintings and drawings. He reconfigures landscape and architecture according to imagined or misremembered rules of use-value, symbolism, and physics. These works propose a recuperation of mystery and the sublime through the inevitable mingling of nature and culture. Spangler graduated from Vassar College with a major in Studio Art in 2002.
