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.

Overlook the Value of Interns at Great Peril – NYTimes.com

Interesting article by David Carr in the  NY Times about internships.

Overlook the Value of Interns at Great Peril – NYTimes.com.

Last week, The New York Post ran the kind of heart-rending article tabloids excel at. A young woman, new to New York, found herself pushed beyond what she could bear, forced to work by a big bad corporation for a compensation of exactly zero. Read more

Deborah Willis: Out [o] Fashion

Chair Deborah Willis has authored a new book, Out [o] Fashion Photography: Embracing BeautyThrough the themes of idealized beauty, the unfashionable body, the gendered image, and photography as memory, Willis challenges and makes problematic the “reading” of photographic images in the 21st centur

In conjunction with the opening of the exhibition on Friday, March 1st, Deb joined  Erika Dalya Massaquoi for a discussion of the exhibition moderated and introduced by the Henry’s Director, Sylvia Wolf. The discussion revolved around the topics of transformative experience of the photograph through the themes of idealized beauty, the unfashionable body, the gendered image, and photography as memory.

REVIEWS of the exhibition and book:

Pacific NW Photography by Shannon McClatchey: The Out [o]Fashion Photography: Embracing Beauty show currently on view at the Henry Gallery isn’t one of those exhibits where you see some pretty images and walk away. That’s not to say there aren’t beautiful photographs – there are plenty – but this is an often challenging show and the photographs and videos included are meant to leave us with more questions than answers.

Vanguard Seattle wrote a review of “Out [o] Fashion” and the discussion between Deb, Erika, and Sylvia. She offers, “Out [o] Fashion Photography: Embracing Beauty is a skillfully curated exploration of beauty, fashion and photography. The diversity of the works chosen are certain to inspire individual contemplation of these broad concepts within our heavily visual society.”

Sheila Farr, longtime Seattle art and culture critic, wrote in today’s Seattle Met Magazine, “One thing this exhibit makes quite clear is that, despite Keats’s assurance that “beauty is truth, truth beauty,” beauty might be truth—or not.”

The Seattle Met also urged readers to go see the exhibition.
