DPI Lecture Series: Jill Magid


Who: Jill Magid

Where: NYU Silver Center, 24 Waverly Place, Room 300

When: Thursday April 17th from 7:00pm – 8:00pm

**Space is limited. Pre-registration is required to attend. RSVP at http://jillmagid.eventbrite.com/ **

New York University’s Department of Photography & Imaging in the Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at the Tisch School of the Arts will present a talk with Jill Magid, artist and adjunct professor at Cooper Union. Jill Magid is the second lecturer in the DPI Lecture Series, following Walid Raad in Fall 2013.

In this presentation, Brooklyn-based artist and writer Jill Magid will discuss a selection of her projects, which probe seemingly impenetrable systems such as the NYPD, The Dutch Secret Service, surveillance systems and, most recently, the estate of architect Luis Barrágan. Her work focuses on forging close relationships within bureaucratic structures—flirting with, seducing, and subverting authority.

A photo ID is required to enter the Silver Center. RSVP for this event here. For further information, call 212.998.1930 or visitwww.photo.tisch.nyu.edu.

Brooklyn-based artist and writer Jill Magid forms intimate relationships with systems of power, including police, military, secret service, corporations, and CCTV surveillance. For Magid, power is not a remote condition to contest, but rather something to manipulate—drawing it closer, exploiting its loopholes, engaging it in dialogue, infiltrating its structure, repeating its logic. With solo exhibitions at institutions around the world including Tate Modern, London; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Berkeley Museum of Art, California; Tate Liverpool; the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam; Yvon Lambert, Paris and New York; Gagosian Gallery, New York; and the Security and Intelligence Agency of the Netherlands, Magid has received awards from the Fonds Voor Beeldende Kunsten and the Netherland-American Foundation Fellowship Fulbright Grant. Magid has participated in the Liverpool, Bucharest, Singapore, Incheon, and Gothenburg Biennials.
She is an Associate of the Art, Design and the Public Domain program at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University, and a 2013-15 fellow at the Vera List Center for Art and Politics. An adjunct teacher at Cooper Union, Magid is the author of four novellas.
Jill is also the recipient of the Eyebeam Artist-in-Residence Fellowship (2006), Basis Stipendium (2006), The Reverse Torah Project grant (2002), and Mama Cash Grant for Arts Culture and Media (2005). Her books include Failed States, Becoming Tarden, Lincoln Ocean Victor Eddy, and One Cycle of Memory in the City of L.

Field Trip! Large Format visits Green Rhino/Brooklyn Printworks [Update]

Alumnus Anthony Accardi recently hosted Tom Drysdale’s Large Format Class at Green Rhino/Brooklyn Printworks, 221 McKibben Street, in Bushwick. Anthony showed samples of the amazing range of non-silver printing techniques he has made available to artists; including large-scale platinum, cyanotype, gum-bichromate and even albumin print options. Using his digital-c printing system to make inter-negatives, Accardi has systematically refined optimal curves for best results with any of these expressive approaches. Speaking with students, he discussed the subtle relationship between aesthetic choices and appropriate materials. With thirty years of experience printing a variety of formats for artists like Matthew Barney, he extolls the virtues of a hybrid approach to image-making, utilizing digital tools as well as traditional, even “obsolete” methodologies. We had a great time and we’d urge anyone with thoughts of special printing methods to contact him.

[Update]: Tom and students have sent over some extra photos from their day in Brooklyn. Click the thumbnails to enlarge.

Advanced Lighting goes on Location

Mark Jenkinson reporting on his Advanced Lighting’s recent field trip.

A little too chilly, (when is going to finally warm up?) but we couldn’t hold out any longer.  All of us had cabin fever from spending too much of the semester in Room 844, so we loaded up my car with a ton of lighting gear and headed off to the East Village where our model Zack, from Red Model Management came to meet us.

Arranging locations for field trips is always tricky for me, I have to consider a lot of visual factors (like does it look cool), as well as practical considerations; are there bathrooms nearby, shelter in case it rains, and security for the students and gear.  Luckily one of our students, Brian McGuffog, a had a nearby apartment with a roof deck, really we couldn’t have asked for a better location to play with “day for night” , and mixed strobe motion effects.
