Episode Date
Andrew Ross
1:10:42
Andrew Ross received his BFA from The Cooper Union in 2011, where he was awarded the Gelman Trust Award for Excellence in Sculpture. He attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2011. He’s been a resident and/or fellow of programs including The Triangle Arts Association, The Drawing Center's Open Sessions, LMCC's Swing Space, The Macedonia Institute, The Bruce High Quality Foundation, and he is a current awardee of Two Trees’ Cultural Space Subsidy Program. Ross has exhibited in group exhibitions at The Hessel Museum, The Drawing Center, The Studio Museum in Harlem, Artists Space, Center for the Humanities at CUNY, White Columns, and Greene Naftali. He has staged solo exhibitions at Signal (Brooklyn, NY), American Medium (NY, NY), Clima Gallery (Milan, Italy), and False Flag (Long Island City, NY). Ross’ work has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, Cultured, Flash Art, Mousse, and the Brooklyn Rail. Ross is a sculptor and new media artist who creates fragmentary constructions with figurative elements and everyday objects. With attention to metaphoric associations that his imagery elicits Ross’ tableau scenes oscillate between speculative fiction and cartoonish satire. His figures are chimeric and mythical in appearance yet typically occupied with some form of work and juxtaposed with commonplace detritus. Joining traditional sculpture, assemblage and digital imaging, Ross’s works capture existential issues regarding the conundrum of representation in our age of many avatars.

Spencer Tunick
1:36:21
Spencer Tunick has been documenting the live nude figure in public, with photography and video, since 1992. Since 1994, he has organized over 100 temporary site-related installations that encompass dozens, hundreds or thousands of volunteers, and his photographs are records of these events. In his early group works, the individuals en masse, without their clothing, grouped together, metamorphose into a new shape. The bodies extend into and upon the landscape like a substance. These group masses, which do not underscore sexuality, often become abstractions that challenge or reconfigure one's views of nudity and privacy. The work also refers to the complex issue of presenting art in permanent or temporary public spaces. Spencer stages scenes in which the battle of nature against culture is played out against various backdrops, from civic center to desert sandstorm. In 2002 he started to work with standing positions for his group formations referencing traditional group portraiture. Now, for some installations, he adds objects that the participants are often holding or wearing and has included body paint. Spencer has and continues to make group installations/photographs elevating awareness of HIV/AIDS, LGBTQ rights, equality and climate change, among other issues. Near the end of installations, for the final setups, he sometimes separates the participants into smaller groups to make additional assemblages: sometimes by sex, sometimes by age, or even by hair color. However, no one is ever excluded from an installation because of the color of their skin, ethnicity, gender identity, sex, race, religion, or political affiliation. If you can make it to an installation you can participate, unless of course there are space limitations. Spencer could not make his art without the generosity of the participants. He is eternally grateful for their participation. He wishes he could credit everyone in his individual and group photographs but there are hundreds and thousands who have taken part collectively. In exchange for taking part, participants receive a limited edition print. Spencer's temporary site-specific photographic installations have been commissioned by the XXV Biennial de Sao Paulo, Brazil (2002); Institut Cultura, Barcelona (2003); The Saatchi Gallery (2003); MOCA Cleveland (2004); Vienna Kunsthalle (2008) and MAMBO Museum of Modern Art, Bogota (2016), among others.

1:32:03
Andrew Schoultz (1975, Milwaukee, WI) lives and works in Los Angeles, California. He received his BFA in Illustration from the Academy of Arts University in San Francisco, CA. Schoultz has participated in several international solo and group exhibitions, including Joshua Liner Gallery NY, Galerie Droste, Wuppertal, GER or Galerie LJ in Paris, FR. His works are represented in important collections such as the Los Angeles County Museum (LACMA), the Berkeley Art Museum or the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA. Schoultz utilizes a signature style of densely-packed, meticulously-rendered motifs – archaic war machines, the iconography of the American Dollar bill, and cataclysmic events, both natural and man-made – to represent the turmoil of the contemporary world. He makes historic references to antique etchings and Persian miniature painting as well as to William T. Wiley, M. C. Escher and Mission School street art. But Schoultz’s art is very much his own – an intense vision of a planet threatened by overcrowding and overconsumption and societies under siege by the governments that are there to protect them.

Richard Colman
1:33:09
Richard Colman paints vivid, hard-edged figurative canvases that combine biomorphic shapes with graphic geometries. These pieces oscillate between abstract compositions and recognizable domestic scenes. They often embrace sexual imagery and themes of life, death, human interaction and isolation.  Women, animals, floating heads, and overlapping bodies are common motifs.  He vacillates freely between figuration and abstraction, at times focusing on pattern while other times on figure and narrative.  Also producing sculpture and installation works, Colman incorporates a variety of media, including paper, wood, porcelain, plaster, glue, nails, and tape—typically using vibrant colors.  Colman’s installations have taken the form of elaborate, psychedelic floor designs and theatrical stages constructed within the gallery.  Colman has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Copenhagen, Berlin, Mexico City, London, and Paris. He currently lives and works in San Francisco and on a farm converted to a studio in rural Connecticut.

REVOK
1:39:52
Entirely self-taught, Jason REVOK is known for pushing creative boundaries that began in the street. Although his story begins with graffiti, the artist has spent the last decade focussing on his studio practice and the evolution of process and concept. Refusing to be limited by his early recognition, REVOK allows only certain elements from graffiti culture to transition to his contemporary work – modest materials and industrial tools, ingenuity, his name – but his proclivity towards minimalism and post-painterly abstraction has become the driving force behind his practice. Examining the question of authorship from start to finish, REVOK has developed systematic yet imperfect tools to carry out his vision and has created a number of unmistakable bodies of work. His bold, balanced, geometry is heightened by the personal and imperfect sleight of the human hand. Born in Riverside, CA in 1977 Lives and works in Detroit, MI

Robert Moreland
1:39:51
In his wall works, maquettes, and freestanding objects, Robert Moreland’s constructions represent an arresting intersection between painting and sculpture. With hand-stretched canvases along angled wooden beams, held together cleanly by hinges, tacks, and leather straps, Moreland’s works are as much an investigation of material as they are a declaration of objective unity on a minimalist picture plane. Jutting into the gallery space, and often warped or creased along parallel lines like folding partitions or the pages of a book, Moreland’s large works minutely alter the space they are in, provoking a relationship of direct proximity with their viewers.

Carl D'Alvia
1:30:56
Carl D’Alvia received a B.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1987 and splits his time between Connecticut and New York City. He works in a sculptural idiom that is decidedly hyper-visual, artisanal and history laden. He has developed proprietary sculptural processes that co-opt existing means of traditional and industrial production. Drawing on sources that include megalithic monuments, toy design and the Baroque, the work encapsulates seemingly antithetical motifs such as minimal/ornate, industrial/handmade, comic/tragic, progress/destruction and attraction/repulsion. He has had recent solo shows at Hesse Flatow, Nathalie Karg Gallery and Regina Rex in New York and Galerie Papillon in Paris as well as previous solo shows at Mulherin + Pollard ( 2013) and Derek Eller Gallery, New York (2008 & 2006) .

Tilde Grynnerup
1:14:10
Tilde Grynnerup, 1973. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Educated in textile design and specialized in embroidery. She is a multidisciplinary artist working across different medias such as textile, wood, installation, conceptual, photography, film. The artist choose whichever media expresses her vision the best, and work without limitations. She like to explore. As Meret Oppenheim said “Nobody will give you freedom. You have to take it”. Having spent a decade writing songs, and another decade working with fashion, Tilde Grynnerup create works of art, combining words and textile. And having grown up with the inherited craftsmanship skills from her carpenter father, woodwork is like family. She work with him in our joint wood workshop by a small forest, where my father lives retired. When working with wood, the artist alternately work between her wood workshop in the countryside and her studio in the city of Copenhagen. The interaction between the countryside nature and the city, is her perfect balance. Just like the interaction between working with soft materials like textile and hard materials like brass and wood. Feminism is to Tilde Grynnerup about equality and the freedom of being, and that subject is a constant in her work. Driven by social indignation and a general curiosity about people and life, her artwork usually aim to communicate a thought or a feeling. Something true and profound. She wonder a lot. Creating art gives her relief. Especially when using humor. Hopefully it provides a little relief to others too. We are, after all, not alone.

Ryan McGinness is an American artist, living and working in New York, New York. He grew up in the surf and skate culture of Virginia Beach, Virginia, and then studied at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as an Andrew Carnegie Scholar. During college, he interned at the Andy Warhol Museum as a curatorial assistant. Known for his extensive vocabulary of original graphic drawings that use the visual language of public signage, corporate logos, and contemporary symbology, Ryan is credited with elevating the status of the icon to fine art through the creation of his paintings, sculptures, installations, and books. Concerned with the perceived value of forms, he assumes the power of this visual language in order to share personal expressions. The New York Times noted, “In the past decade, Ryan has become an art star, thanks to his Warholian mix of pop iconography and silk-screening.” Vogue declared, “Ryan McGinness is a leading pioneer of the new semiotics.” His work is in the permanent public collections of the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Cincinnati Art Museum, MUSAC in Spain, and the Taguchi Art Collection in Japan. ryanmcginness.com Instagram: @McGinnessWorks Sound & Vision is sponsored by Golden Paint and The NYSS.

Jason Seife
1:28:53
Jason Seife is an artist living and working in Miami, Florida. The inspiration for Seife’s work is based around the notion that we can reinvent the past using modern day materials and compositions, allowing the excellence of an old craft to be admired by a younger generation. Seife was inspired by both his own Middle Eastern heritage and the complex artistic practice of Persian rug weaving. The original designs are laden with hidden meaning and language; the weavers were able to link each rug's particular pattern, palette, and style with a specific and identifiable geographic area or community.Seife’s influences span the realms of art, architecture, performance and music. Seife grew up in Miami to immigrant parents who were supportive of his creative ambitions. After playing in bands throughout his adolescence Seife, a talented graphic designer, began creating album artwork for hip hop artists. He designed Big Sean’s lion logo, painted backdrops in Nicki Minaj’s music videos and created artwork for both Pharrell Williams and Mac Miller. Seife was not content solely actioning the creative vision of others, and so began to create his own work. With financial backing from his career in graphic design, Seife made the transition into creating contemporary artwork full-time in 2015. He has had successful solo shows both domestically and internationally and was recently featured in a special project with The Bronx and Brooklyn Museum and has an upcoming solo exhibition at Carlo Bilotti Museum in Rome, Italy.

Muzae Sesay
1:43:33
Muzae Sesay is an artist born in Long Beach, California who is based out of Oakland, California. His artistic focus derives from a lifelong commitment to understanding our collective relationship to space, memory, community, and the perceived truths within them. From that foundation, his artistic practice has thematically revolved around the merging of these relationships to form paintings that provoke social reasoning and induce the viewer’s agency in the navigation and narration of imagery. Current work connects with the feelings that arise from testing the absoluteness of the strict and rigid aspects of physics and realism found in architecture, design, and our built environment. Utilizing skewed perspectives of space and shape collapsed into flat two-dimensional planes, he creates surreal geometric interiors, exteriors, landscapes, and structures—presenting a situation in which to be experienced and explored. Inspired by ideas of cultural reflection and developed by questioning the validity of remembrance, his work often depicts worlds created in response to a social introspection and a continual challenge of perceived reality. This process involves taking imagery from the physical world and reducing them to rudimental forms that then populate fragmented universes compiled by perspectival fallacies and tied together by harmonious color composition. The viewer is compelled to understand the space, question its dimensionality, dive inside and walk around. Muzae has had shows at Pt. 2 Gallery in Oakland, I.M.A. in San Francisco, Guerrero Gallery in San Francisco, Pt. 2 Gallery in LA, SFMOMA, Fisk Gallery in Portland, V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, Spaceship in New York amongst many others. His work has been covered in Juxtapoz, ArtMaze, Vice, Create! Magazine, and SF Weekly just to name a few. Sound and Vision is supported by the New York Studio School.

Adébayo Bolaji
1:28:45
Adébayo Bolaji is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in London, England. At the centre of his practice is the dialogue of change and the focus of the individual within a connecting society whether that be anthropological, religious, historical or popular culture. The use of mixed media, vigorous and metaphorical language, is a crucial element in his work, helping to narrate a different story within each painting allowing for the viewer to take an active role in the works. Bolaji has exhibited internationally in London and Zurich, with artist residencies in New York and Margate, including an Artist Residency with Yinka Shonibare MBE Guest Projects. In his own words “my work is responsive, meaning I’m concerned with what is happening to me, to us, now. No imposing, but listening. This in turn may speak to the past and spiritually think ahead, but now is what matters”.

Peter Krashes
1:49:59
Peter Krashes' studio painting over the past decade stands as one complete body of artistic research growing directly out of his other practice as an unpaid community organizer in the Dean Street area of Prospect Heights in Brooklyn. As Peter says, "My work as an activist and my work as an artist extend from the same set of values. All of my works are derived from meetings I attend or events and initiatives I help organize. There is no room in political or governmental processes for many of the activities we involve ourselves in, but perhaps none more so than painting a nuanced image in the studio. As a result, the paintings are the last step in a process I have been engaged with from beginning to end. The imperatives I feel outside the studio are explicit so the outcome in the studio is particular and linked directly to the real world." Linking the practices of painting and of activism points out the problematic of actions that can be consumed, ignored, and considered irrelevant by those in official political power. Their human scale and material presence as paint on canvas positions these paintings outside the processes in which decisions are made instead of seeking recognition in political discourses of power. Taking a different approach to generating cultural power, Krashes has generated this body of paintings through working out questions that arise in his range of collaborative activist practices. For example, frustration with the narrow, sometimes apparently biased focus of the media has led Krashes to make paintings depicting the glare of cameras pointed in elected officials' faces or expansive interiors of government chambers with recurring images of empty microphones. He also paints the flipside of this equation, namely that individual voices speaking collectively can exercise power. Neighbors painting protest signs, children's face painting, Easter egg hunts, seedbombs tossed into empty lots, and block parties claim space—marking the presence of the communities willfully neglected by those in power. Brian spoke to Peter about his practice, his community activism and much more.

Laura Splan
1:15:26
Laura Splan is a Brooklyn-based artist whose work mines the materiality of science to reveal poetic subjectivities. Her mixed media projects destabilize notions of the presence and absence of bodies evoking the mutability of categories that delineate their status. Splan’s work compels an intimate engagement with detail calling into question how things are made and what they are made of. She reconsiders perceptions and representations of the corporeal with a range of traditional and new media techniques. She often combines the quotidian with the unfamiliar to interrogate cultural constructions of order and disorder, function and dysfunction. Her frequent combinations of textiles with technology challenge values of "the hand" in creative production and question notions of agency and chance in aesthetics. Her recent Embodied Objects series uses biosensors (electromyography, electroencephalography) to create data-driven forms and patterns for digitally fabricated sculptures, weavings and works on paper as well as for movement in performances with sensor-actuated apparatus. Her current solo exhibition, Conformations, combines biotech imagery, networked devices, and artifacts with sculptures made from the hand-spun fiber of laboratory animals. Splan's work has been exhibited at the Museum of Arts & Design and Beall Center for Art + Technology. International audiences for her work have included Iceland, South Korea, England, Germany, Sweden, Austria, and Canada. Her work is included in the collections of the Thoma Art Foundation, the NYU Langone Art Collection, and the Science Center. Her biomedical themed artworks have been commissioned by the Centers for Disease Control Foundation, the Gen Art New Media Art Exhibition and Davidson College. She has received research funding from The Jerome Foundation and her residencies have been supported by the Knight Foundation, the Institute for Electronic Arts, Harvestworks, and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. She has been a visiting lecturer at Stanford University teaching interdisciplinary courses including “Embodied Interfaces”, “Data as Material” and “Art & Biology”. She is currently a Creative Experiments track member at NEW INC, the New Museum’s cultural incubator. Sound & Vision is sponsored by Golden Paints.

This Panel talk happened at Hunter MFA organized by Cathy Braasch that included Lisa Corinne Davis, Enrico Riley, Cat Balco, Diana Mellon and moderated by Brian Alfred. As a pivotal and integral educator at Yale University for over 40 years, Robert impacted countless lives of students. We would like to touch on personal experiences, teaching philosophy, biographical information and more. Robert was known as an incredibly devoted teacher but just as equally devoted to his artmaking. His works are in the permanent collections of a number of museums, including The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, The Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC, Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT and the National Academy Museum, New York amongst others.
