Tadashi Moriyama and Sinae Lee (both MFA '06) will have work exhibited at Arario Gallery, NY for the show titled Irrelevant: Local Emerging Asian Artists Who Don’t Make Work About Being Asian, an ambitious survey exhibition featuring the work of nearly fifty artists curated by Joann Kim and Lesley Sheng. Irrelevant will present a surging flow of creativity where artists actively engage in their practice, exploring the absurd within everyday experience, the use and misuse of materials both new and found, and the curiosity of defining artistic practice. A major focus of this exhibition is to formulate a community, building a foundation for artists to gather and exchange ideas and experiences. There is an endless array of amazing underrepresented artists in NY, thriving yet unheard. Through this exhibition we get to see artists engaging with their given role and their interests within a particular medium, exploring on both conceptual and idealistic levels with painting, photography, performance, sculpture and installation.

Opening Reception: Thursday, July 1, 6:00 - 8:00pm

Antonio McAfee (MFA '09) in Exquisite Corpse Exhibition at Civilian Art Projects, Opening Thurs, June 24, 8pm

Antonio McAfee, 6:30, 2007

Antonio McAfee (MFA '09) has work in an exhibition titled Exquisite Corpse at Civilian Art Projects, opening Thursday, June 24. Exquisite Corpse is a collaborative photo project curated by Corcoran Photography alums Jessica Cebra, Dave Gustine, and Marissa Long.

Invented by Surrealists in 1925, the Exquisite Corpse method involves a group of collaborators assembling a collection of words or images - each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule or by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person has contributed. The technique is similar to an old parlour game called "Consequences" in which players write in turn on a sheet of paper, fold it to conceal part of the writing, and then pass it on to the next player for further contribution.

While the Exquisite Corpse being exhibited at Civilian Art Projects utilizes the method most commonly seen in the writing exercise, words have been substituted here with images. The project began with each of the three co-curators initiating a "set" or "sentence" of images with his or her own photograph. Each of these photographs was then passed on to another photographer, who created a new image in response to the one he or she had received. That new image then served as inspiration for the next photographer, and so on. The project now includes 28 photographers and three sets of images, each of which present both recognizable connections and surprising juxtapositions, and illustrate the responsive, dreamlike aesthetic that makes the exquisite corpse methodology so exquisite.

Opening Reception: Thursday, June 24, 8:00 - 11:00pm
Exhibition Runs: June 24 - July 3, 2010

The Exquisite Corpse photographers:

Ken Ashton, Page Carr, Jessica Cebra, Jenn DePalma, Ginger Farnham, Dave Gustine, Avi Gupta, Kyoko Hamada, Whitney Hubbs, Paul Jeffreys, Marissa Long, Seth Lower, Michael Lease, Kate MacDonnell, Antonio McAffee, Andy McMillan, Ed Panar, Laurel Ptak, Eric Powell, Ahndraya Parlato, Cory Riggle, Paul Schiek, Mike Terzano, Zach Storm, Sarah Small, Asha Schecter, Sarah Wilmer & Jason Zimmerman.
