MIT Mock-Up featured in DAVID K. ROSS Exhibit

Posted on August 26th, 2019 by Nicole Sakr

Posted under: _MIT Site 4, Installations + Exhibitions

The Patrick Mikhail Gallery in Montréal will present, from August 28 – October 19, 2019, “ARCHETYPES” by David K. Ross, featuring new photographic works. There will be an artist reception Wednesday, August 28th at 5:30pm. More info HERE.

“The result of four years of research and exclusive access to construction sites around the globe, Ross’ photographs take us behind the scenes and over the hoardings to encounter these rarely-seen fragments from the world of architecture. Captured using flash photography on building sites locked down for the evening, the scale and location of these structures remain ambiguous.” – Patrick Mikhail Gallery

“Mock-ups carry something of the photographic within them. Both the mock-up — and its image — physically and indexically reference concepts and ideas that are in formation but are not viewable in their totality. Like photographs, mock-ups are framing devices that focus attention on specific elements taken out of context.” – David K. Ross

SOLO EXHIBITION BY SEONHEE SUNNY KIM AT GOVERNORS ISLAND

Posted on August 1st, 2019 by Dara Lin

Posted under: Events, The Cooper Union

The opening is this Saturday, August 3rd, 2-6 pm. The exhibit is part of the ongoing Imagination of Space event presented by The Cooper Union and curated by Ceren Bingol. Learn more HERE, and see HERE for detailed visiting information and ferry schedule.

“The Light Lights | Space is about the intangible and varying experiences from the reflection and shadow of light in space. With a thin layer of paper, light defines the shape itself and draws its boundary with the shadow in space. Reflections and shadows shown through the surface of the paper break down the boundaries of dimensional space, creating smooth and firm connections within it.

Seonhee Sunny Kim is a visual creator who deals with tangible and intangible materials originally from Korea and based in Detroit and New York now. She recently earned her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, MI, USA. This year she was selected as a recipient of New Beginning Award by Merced Benz and during 2019 NYC design week, she won NYCxDesign Award of emerging designer and Wanted design launch pad. Recently, she is collaborating with City of Detroit with her lighting project for Detroit Community Center.”
