Event Description

 

 

Staring in HINDSIGHT : the State University of New York at New Paltz

 

Designed in response to the physical space that houses the exhibition,

Staring in HINDSIGHT, is an exercise in searching, finding, seeing and knowing. Hindsight is a locator, a liminal state in which we consider the past as we look toward the future. It is a site of contemplation, of longing, and of learning. This notion of occupying the margin of past and future is akin to the creative strategies taught at New Paltz. Students are expected to engage the traditions of jewelry and hollowware, working within the field's "architecture", but not to mimic it; in dialogue through making they question function, value, and relevance to our somatic, conceptual and incorporeal contemporary experience. We look backward and forward at the same time, challenging and promoting the practice of making.

 

The theme and design of Staring in HINDSIGHT was developed by the current Master of Fine Art candidates, under the direction of Professor Jamie Bennett and Visiting Professor Kerianne Quick in consultation with Professor Myra Mimlitsch-Gray. The curated exhibition presents a selection of work from current students and recent alumni of the Metal Program at the State University of New York at New Paltz.

Entworfen unter Berücksichtigung des physischen Raumes, in welchem die Ausstellung untergebracht ist, ist Staring in HINDSIGHT eine Übung in intensivem recherchieren, finden, sehen und wissen. Hindsight, im Sinne von Nachsicht, ist ein Positionsgeber, ein Schwellenzustand in welchem wir die Vergangenheit berücksichtigen, während wir in Richtung Zukunft schauen. Es ist eine Lage der Betrachtung, des Verlangens und des Lernens. Diese Vorstellung der Besetzung der Randzone der Vergangenheit und Zukunft ist vergleichbar mit den kreativen Strategien wie sie in New Paltz unterrichtet werden. Von den Studenten wird erwartet sich mit den Traditionen von Schmuck und Hohlware auseinanderzusetzen, innerhalb des Bereiches der “Architektur”, jedoch nicht zu immitieren. Im Dialog hinterfragen sie durch ihr arbeiten die Funktion, den Wert und die Relevanz unserer somatischen, konzeptionellen und immateriellen zeitgenössischen Erfahrung. Wir schauen rückwaÅNrts und vorwärts zur selben Zeit, treiben die Praxis des Machens voran und forden sie heraus.

 

Das Thema und das Design von Staring in HINDSIGHT wurde von den derzeitigen Master of Fine Art Studenten entwickelt, unter der Direktion von Professor Jamie Bennett und Gastprofessorin Kerianne Quick in Absprache mit Professor Myra Mimlitsch-Gray. Die kuratierte Ausstellung präsentiert eine Auswahl an Arbeiten aktueller Studenten sowie ehemaligen Studenten des Metall Programms der State University of New York at New Paltz.
