This event has ended.

School of Visual Arts (SVA) presents “Defending Dialogue,” an exhibition of work by fourth-year students in the BFA Visual & Critical Studies Department: Alex Belancourt, Luiza Cardenuto, Nina Franzen, Lucia Hinojosa, Ilana Kruger, Hallie Kruger, Betty Laboz, Angela Miskis, Amelia Modlin, Maya Harder-Montoya, George Mott, Lauren O’Neill, William Patterson, Alyssa Rina, Courtney Spieker, Susanna Spieler and Megan Westgate. Curated by art historian and faculty member Isabel Taube, the exhibition will be on view January 5 – February 2 at the Westside Gallery, 133/141 West 21 Street, New York City.

The exhibition exemplifies the diversity of aesthetic and theoretical approaches associated with the department and challenges viewers to think broadly and critically, just as the program requires the students to do. Ranging from multi-screen videos and mixed-media installations to paintings and prints, the pieces employ various strategies: some works are based on actual dialogues (verbal and written); others seek to break down assumptions and invite a critical exchange of ideas through dialogue. The works include censorship, personal and cultural identity, gaming strategy, and memory and forgetting.
