Domoto: Visions of Usonia

Japanese American architect Kaneji Domoto (1912 - 2002) realized multiple projects in Usonia, a cooperative in Pleasantville, New York, just 10 miles from Purchase College. His houses describe the translation of Frank Lloyd Wright’s ideal middle-class house from a general vision to the particulars of construction, cultural identity and environmental responsiveness in a New York suburb.  At a moment when traditional Modernist architectural narratives are being challenged by identity politics and reread through the work of fellow travelers rather than iconic figures, the contribution made by Domoto is particularly relevant to contemporary architecture. This show is curated by Lynnette Widder of Columbia University; and it sets her installation design in juxtaposition to Domoto’s architecture, landscape architecture, sculpture, furniture design, painting and traditional Japanese craft techniques.

Room temperature
 brings together recent experiments in metal casting, ceramics, and carpentry, produced during Ekwurtzel’s time as the SUNY Purchase Windgate Artist-in-Residence. A heavy timber structure is held together with a new type of connective media. Metal objects are coated in ceramic and then drained of themselves, becoming subject to forces of gravity and abstraction. Sam Ekwurtzel lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Ekwurtzel has presented solo exhibitions at Simone Subal Gallery, NY; Real Art Ways, Hartford; Art Basel, Miami; and Reference Gallery, Richmond. 

Each semester, the School of Art+Design invites one Windgate Artist-in-Residence (WAIR) in applied design. The program expands upon the conservatory environment and collaborative atmosphere that is the cornerstone of the Purchase educational experience, allowing students to observe an artist at work and to engage in dialogue in the studio and the classroom.

The Mess Just Beneath the Veneer of Order

Curated by Joshua Lutz

OCTOBER 16 – NOVEMBER 16, 2018

The Mess Just Beneath the Veneer of OrderThe Mess Just Beneath the Veneer of Order is a group exhibition of photographic-based works curated by Joshua Lutz, Assistant Professor of Photography in the School of Art+Design. In this show, disparate catalogs capture various degrees to which power can imprison those that fall on the fringes, and embolden others born into privilege. The exhibition invites us to engage with the space between the archive of transgender woman seeking refuge from the public in the upstate home of Casa Susanna, to the horror of images of men confined within the walls of the San Quentin State Prison. Another set of images, painstakingly maintained and cataloged, of men congratulating themselves, is foiled by, an archive of decayed family photographs that floated to the surface after being destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Together, these images map out ways to which photographs can both document the past and as well as perhaps foreshadow and provide insight to our current cultural and political climate.

We Are All in This Together

SEPTEMBER 27 - NOVEMBER 10, 2017                         
PRINTWEEK 2017   OCTOBER 23 - 25, 2017

Kevin Caplicki, 2017Kevin Caplicki, 2017

We Are All in This Together, presented by Interference Archive with the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, uses the collection of Interference Archive and materials produced by the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative to explore artists’ solidarity with social movements.

There is a long tradition of artists as organizers. Artists participate in social justice by communicating demands and goals with visual works, with their labor in producing multiples, and through creating consumable items for fundraising. We Are All in This Together illustrates the moments when artists have rolled up their sleeves to do the work of organizing. More than providing political commentary or personal response to topical events, many cultural workers have used their trade and skillset in solidarity with social, economic and environmental struggles. This exhibit will use Justseeds prints that were produced in solidarity with recent Standing Rock, the Wisconsin uprising, and more, along with ephemera from the Interference Archive that reflect those social movements.   

This exhibition is organized by Interference Archive’s Amber Hickey, Amy Roberts, Bonnie Gordon, Melissa Sions, Nora Almeida, and Kevin Caplicki, Interference Archive co-founder and member of Justseeds. Interference Archive is an all-volunteer, grassroots archive of social movement cultural ephemera based in Brooklyn, NY. Its mission is to explore the relationship between cultural production and social movements. This work manifests in an open-stacks archival collection, publications, a study center, and public programs including exhibitions, workshops, educational visits, talks, and screenings, all of which encourage critical and creative engagement with the rich history of how people have organized to transform and improve their lives.

The Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative is a decentralized network of 29 artists committed to social, environmental, and political engagement. With members working from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds is producers cooperative to distribute members artwork that operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly minded printmakers and as a loose collection of creative individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods. We believe in the transformative power of personal expression in concert with collective action.

Christy Oates, Untitled, 2017Christy Oates, Untitled, 2017Christy Oates: Digital Woodcrafting

As an artist and furniture maker with a background in manufacturing, Christy Oates is inspired by digital making combined with traditional woodworking techniques. Using computer-aided drafting programs and computer numerical control (CNC) machines like laser cutters and CNC routers to create her work, she is most interested in questioning where the boundaries of art and manufacturing meet.

Digital Woodcrafting is an exploration of laser-cut wood marquetry techniques for furniture and an investigation of patterns and repetitive forms in bent wood lighting.

Punching Up

February 22–March 24

Punching Up brings together visual artists working within various permutations of humor (irony, puns, deadpan, satire, etc.) in the service of critiquing those in power. Referring to a comedy-world golden rule of taking cultural hierarchies to task, the artists in Punching Up point out, examine, and combat issues of power. Racism, classism, gentrification, capitalism, elitism, and the art world itself are all subjects to be exposed and examined. Artists in the show work in a variety of mediums including printmaking, drawing, painting, sculpture, video, and performance.

Participating artists include Candyass, Caroline Chandler, Desiree Des, Ryan Falkowitz, Rob Hult, Brendan Loper, Divya Mehra, Jayson Musson, William Pope.L, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Alan Resnick, Buzz Slutzky, Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung, and Katie Vida. Curated by Janine Polak and Jon Lutz. 


The Surface of Design

October 3 - November 11, 2016

The Surface of Design










Taking its name from a seminal essay by the critic and philosopher Jacques Rancière, this exhibition considers the question of surface in relation to contemporary graphic design. Beyond divisions between the poetic and the professional, or the modern and postmodern, “the flat surface,” Rancière reminds us, “was always a surface of communication where words and images slid into one another.” Curated by designer and writer Mark Owens, The Surface of Design thus brings together select historical objects and work by contempo­rary artists and designers to probe a number of interrelated material practices, including wall­paper, supergraphics, and décor, as well as 3D printing and design for the surface of the com­puter screen. Between these various poles lies the printed page, and the exhibition will also consider how recent technological developments cast light on the notion of “the public” in publication. Taken together, the works in The Surface of Design shed new light on graphic design as “a surface of commu­nication” and ask what new forms of “communal life” might therefore be possible.

Peter Galbert: Continuous Grain

 Peter Galbert:

Continuous Grain

January 25–February 10, 2017

Continuous Grain features works in wood using traditional techniques to explore split wood as a sculptural material, resulting in both functional (chairs) and nonfunctional objects.

Mike Rossi: An Original Miscellany

August 29 - September 23, 2016

An Original Miscellany is a presentation of forged steel sculpture and furniture, a mixture of interests and intents. By exploring his objective memory of tools, artifacts and implements, Rossi is building a material language. Combining and refiguring the almost-familiar, these works evoke use, intuition, and recollection.

Curated by Jennifer Samet, in conversation with Scott Wolniak, Physical Painting is about work that is anchored in the format of painting, but which incorporates materials and techniques other than paint on canvas.

The artists embrace medium hybridity by building object-like works. They use both destructive and constructive approaches: sticking elements together, embedding objects within, pouring, digging, building up, and cutting away the surface. Wood, plaster slabs, ceramics, patterned textiles, consumer items, shaped surfaces, wire, and glue are used along with, or in place of, traditional pigments and support. Processes such as casting, assembling, and stitching mingle with brushing and mark making.

This exhibition gathers a multi-generational group of artists from across the United States to reveal this expansive direction in contemporary art including; Liv Aanrud, Eleanna Anagnos, Yevgeniya Baras, Michelle Grabner, Ron Gorchov, Hilary Harnischfeger, David Lloyd, Dona Nelson, Larry Poons, Joyce Robins, Cordy Ryman, and Scott Wolniak

Kimberly Winkle

Kimberly Winkle: Traces

Traces consists of furniture forms that display strong use of color and linear pattern, which are derived from traditional Seminole patchwork. As a member of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma this work is important to me as a form of preservation and expansion of the tradition into contemporary material sculpture.” -Kimberly Winkle
