DANA SCHUTZ

VISITING ARTIST LECTURE SERIES
APRIL 22, 2011, 12PM
ART 165

DANA SCHUTZ is an ecstatically imaginative painter.  Her vibrant, subjective palette has made a major contribution to the discourse of painting since the artist first began exhibiting her work ten years ago.  Her paintings depict stories or situations that she invents and develops into imaginary worlds, laid out in a bold palette with a sophisticated and remarkable mastering of the painting medium.  Her vivid, fantastical works have been compared to many artists such as John Currin, Francisco Goya, and Alex Katz.

Schutz participated in Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1999.  She received her BFA from Cleveland Institute of Art in 2000, and her MFA in 2002 from Columbia University.

Schutz lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.  Her work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions at Zach Feuer Gallery, New York; Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin; The Rose Art Museum,

CULT OF THE RUIN: STRATEGIES OF ACCUMULATION

Opening Reception Thursday, January 6, 6-9 pm | UAG & ROOM
January 6 - February 5, 2011

Cult of the Ruin: Strategies of Accumulation features 12 emerging artists from the U.S. and Europe working in video, performance, sculpture, installation, watercolor and food. What binds these disparate projects is the persistence of appropriation, re-enactment, material accretion – as strategies – to address the perceived gap between records of the past and our present experiences.  Over 20 years have passed since critic Craig Owens posited this gap as a site for allegory.  In doing so, Owens defined a branch of postmodern art practice by the artist’s allegorical “impulse” to return to outmoded forms and systems – or ruins – to reinvigorate their contemporary value.  Taken together, the works in this exhibition evince contemporary deviations from his original theory.  And yet, their re-making of Owens’ allegorical impulse keeps the original theory alive.

program overview

Advanced Collaboration 2010 image

The cultural explosion of video has created new career opportunities for students, and has hastened a need for much more in-depth, systematic study of video. Therefore we have greatly revised and expanded our curriculum. 


Our new production training provides the equipment and time necessary for students to develop a hands-on understanding of the tools, terminology and workflow of a production crew. Pre-Production & Post-Production courses further enhance organizational and technical skills. History courses focus on the study of important experimental film and video art works that are understood as critical to the development of video making.  A range of
