Boy, 2011 by Esteban Pulido
It may not be in this state, but we can still show some internet support for alumni work being shown across the country. New Graduate Work from the Art Institute of Chicago opened last weekend and will be up the rest of the month at Launch Art in Peterborough, NH and at Launch F18 in New York City, NY.
With a somewhat self-explanatory title, New Graduate Work from the Art Institute of Chicago features just that: work by very recent MFA graduates Sean Lamoureux, Tony Favarula, Esteban Pulido, Nicole White, Kelly Jones, Julie Oh, Lilly Hern-Fondation, Jamie Steele, Alex Z., and Amaris Granado. But there’s more that connects these artists than their shared education… here’s a bit about the show-
“Operating around bounds of the home, neighborhood, fantasy, and social and psychological observation, New Graduate Work from the Art Institute of Chicago features photography, print, and video selections from the 2012 M.F.A. candidates in the school’s photography department.
The exhibition, comprised of varying modes of practice and interdisciplinary production, addresses personal themes by challenging material and technological limitations of chosen media. The diversity of work engages a multi-faceted critique and creates an overarching milieu of social and personal interaction with the world and the artists’ immediate surroundings.”
While we here at the Service Bureau must resign ourselves to long distance well wishing, if you do happen to live near in New York or New Hampshire, come and show your support! Launch F18 is at 373 Broadway on the 6th floor and Launch Art is at 28 Grove St. For more information about the galleries and dates of the shows visit www.launchf18.com, or www.launchart.net.
And on a similar note, congratulations to all the newly minted grads at SAIC! Good luck, and remember, the Service Bureau will always be there for all of your alumni printing needs.
