Wearing Through News, Faculty Project(s) #5 @ Manhattan Project(s), Manhattan College, February 15 – April 15, 2015, New York City

wearingthroughnews“Wearing Through News” is an ongoing project that focuses on “important” headlines on the front-page of the New York Times. The importance of a story or headline is usually delineated by the font size. In this project I have focused on headlines that are of the utmost importance according to the editors, in that the font is large and all the letters are capitalized. Such large, capital, bold-faced headlines used to be, in years past, quite a rare occurrence. However, in recent history, as the pace of world events has accelaerated, so has the appearance of these headlines. In 2014 there were more than 10, while in 2001 there were only 2. The headlines are transferred to T-shirts through the analog photographic process of Cyanotype, which is in fact one of the earliest photographic processes, first discovered in 1842. In “Wearing Through News” the T-shirts have also been toned with various types and strengths of tea, a common toning agent, to deepen and separate the color. In addition these particular images have gone through an extreme bleaching process that has weakened the fabric. The cotton and the polyester have begun to separate, which means that through wearing and washing the images of the headlines will deteriorate and flake off over time, a reference to the temporary nature of any news story as it rises and falls within the confines of the 48-hour news cycle.

SELF: Portraits of Artists in Their Absence.

January 29 – May 3, 2015

Artists have created self-portraits for centuries, in part to ensure presence in their absence. Self explores the relationship artists have with their own image and how self-representation has evolved over the past 200 years. In our age of compulsive self-celebration, it is an especially compelling moment to examine this enduring artistic genre.

The exhibition is organized by Maurizio Pellegrin, Creative Director; Diana Thompson, Curator of the Collection; and Filippo Fossati, Curator at Large.

Artists Include: Marina Abramović, Ivan Le Lorraine Albright, Boushra Almutawakel, Vincenzo Amato, William Anastasi, Lyle Ashton Harris, John Baldessari, Barry X Ball, Will Barnet, Jay Batlle, Cecilia Beaux, Thomas Hart Benton, Ellen Berkenblit, Ernest L.
