Today is the last day for SCAD deFINE Art! Don’t miss the following events:
Join us for to a gallery talk with several artists whose work is exhibited in “Alter Ego,” including SCAD foundation studies professor Chuck Carbia, SCAD alumnus Bin Feng (M.F.A., photography, 2017) and SCAD painting professor Vanessa Platacis, moderated by Ben Tollefson, assistant curator of SCAD exhibitions. Explore the artist’s unique approaches to the theme of the artist’s alter ego. Attendees will hear about the career of PIXNIT, Platacis’ alter ego, and her site-specific mural, commissioned for the exhibition; Feng will elaborate on his Pin Man, a costumed persona donning hundreds of novelty pins; Carbia will expound upon his performance art collective Glitter Chariot and its influence on his delicate watercolor paintings.
“Alter Ego” is a group exhibition offering diverse approaches to the broad theme of the artist’s alter ego. The exhibition, featuring various artistic practices, follows a rich history of personas, but offers fresh approaches that critique or celebrate notions of celebrity, commodity culture, reality and fiction.
Join us for insights into the fascinating, global curatorial practice of Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, co-founders of Art Reoriented, a multidisciplinary curatorial platform based in Munich, Germany and New York, New York, as they speak in depth about recent projects, such as international group exhibition “Ways of Seeing.” The presentation also covers how their practice embraces cultural diversity and global artistic practices as well as how they adapt curatorial methodology and content to fit different institutional and cultural contexts.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
