School of Visual Arts presents “Intricacies of Being,” an exhibition of work by SVA students and recent graduates selected by a jury of their peers. Organized by SVA Galleries, “Intricacies of Being” is on view Thursday, July 9, through Thursday, August 6, at the SVA Chelsea Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, New York City.
The works on view in “Intricacies of Being” explore the complexities of human experience in repetitious and at times traditionally domestic practices such as folding, embroidering, tracing and sculpting. This exhibition’s paintings, video, photography, sculpture and mixed-media works examine the connection between materiality and existence.
Participating artists include Yasaman Alipour, Christy Bencosme, Francesca Facciola, Kijin Jang, Georgia Lale, Heesun Shin and Stefan Ziegler.
MFA Photography, Video and Related Media student Kijin Jang’s video works explore the familiar realm of humiliation and insecurity, exaggerating the responses of individuals in environments that challenge their ability to engage or self-reflect.
Juried exhibitions are a way for SVA’s student body to recognize the achievements of their classmates. Artists are selected from a large pool of applicants through a rigorous examination of presented materials, including documentation of work and artist statements.
