Gestures & Junctures, Questions & Quotes: CUNY Queens College MFA Show

Curated by Paul D’Agostino at Sideshow Gallery

Gestures & Junctures, Questions & Quotes taps into the great energy and variety of Queens College’s deeply multidisciplinary MFA program. It is a survey of the broad diversity of the program’s creative practices, as well as an attempt to find sutures among them through the words the students themselves sometimes use with respect to their work. In support of this, curator Paul D’Agostino writes, in his catalogue essay: “The wide range of inputs and pursuits relevant to this group of artists is readily conveyed by the terms they came up with themselves when asked, individually but within a group setting, to try to sum up their respective creative practices in just one word. Here’s what they offered: chaos, exploration, pattern, connection, empathy, bound, experimental, digestive, emotional, nostalgia, descriptive, poetic, schizophrenic, narrative, weird, understanding, stillness, scientific, cliché, quiet, dignity, hungry.”

Featured artists: Arbër Dabaj, Alejandro Salgado Cendales, Alix Camacho, Amy Cheng, Edward Majkowski, Effi Ibok, Eliesha Grant, Erin Turner, Floor Grootenhuis, Jeff Kasper, Jenna Makuh, Julian Phillips, Len Antinori, Maria K. Karlberg-Levin, Michael Ferris Jr., Nancy Bruno, Paula Frisch, Pedro Vintimilla, Tara Homasi, Uno Nam, Zaid Islam
