Thesis Exhibitions, and Summer 2013

Campus,Department,Exhibitions — KVH @ 10:28 am, Thursday, May 16th, 2013

MICA’s Undergraduate Thesis Exhibitions for 2013 open TONIGHT, Thursday May 16, 5-9PM. Tonight’s viewing is part of the Artwalk ‘preview’, and tickets are required to attend. The main reception for the show is Sunday, May 19th 1:30-5 PM. This event is free to the public. You are also free to walk the galleries all weekend long to view the work. The exhibitions de-install on Monday, May 20th, so don’t procrastinate.

Work by the Printmaking Majors are scattered throughout galleries in the Fox and Main buildings (along with great work from other departments).


In conjunction with this year’s exhibition, we’ve created a catalog of the 2013 Graduates and their work. You can view a pdf of it here: Printmaking 2013 senior thesis Booklet (Click to view in your browser, or Control > Click and Save As to download). You can also purchase a copy of it, printed and bound, from Lulu.com right here. Special thanks to Justin Caruso, Kelly Laughlin, and Lyla Shlon for their handiwork in laying out the booklet for us.

After the thesis exhibition closes, the department will be hosting two mini-mester courses, lasting into early June. The studios in Dolphin will only be available to students in those classes, and once they’re finished, studios will be closed for the remainder of the summer.

We hope everyone who was supposed to has emptied the appropriate drawers and lockers. We’ll be cleaning the studios thoroughly this summer and either keeping or throwing away any abandoned supplies.

Congrats to all of our graduating Seniors, and we look forward to having everyone else back in the Fall!

Thanks everyone for an exciting and eventful year!

Happy New Year!

Campus,cool,Department,Events — printmaking @ 10:56 pm, Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

DNA theatre is kicking off the new year with a fantastic aerial performance titled “12.” The last twelve people on earth attempt to survive in a dystopian society.

The posters for the production were designed and screen-printed in collaboration with printmaking volunteers.

This show is a must-see. People will by flying.

Visiting Artist Lectures

Campus,Department,Lectures — KVH @ 12:30 pm, Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

We have THREE (3) end-of-the-semester Visiting Artist lectures, ALL lunchtime lectures, all in the next two weeks. (!!!)

Brian Garner will be presenting an artist-lecture at Noon in Brown 413 on Monday, December 6th.

Elvia Perrin will be presenting an artist-lecture at Noon in Brown 413 the next day, Tuesday December 7th.

Robert Tillman will be presenting an artist-lecture at Noon in Brown 413 on Monday, December 13th.

These are going to be very informative, interesting, and excellent lectures. We strongly encourage you to attend ALL THREE of them.

We know it’s finals week, we know you’re busy, we know it’s crunch time.

Trust us on this. Bring your lunch and find them time – they will be great!

Take a break from everything else and come! It’s ONLY your lunch hour!

Thanks! See you there!!

The End of the Semester is HERE!

Campus,Department,Facilities,health and safety — KVH @ 2:46 pm, Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

**EDITED >> See Below!**

Welcome to the end of semester S U P E R C R U N C H !!!

A few things we want to pass along.

We know that buildings on campus are open 24 hours. However, we are keeping ours on on the usual 7AM – 2AM times.

Let me say that again. BUILDING HOURS WILL BE FROM 7AM – 2AM.

Why you ask? Because only bad things happen in this space after 2AM. You’re tired, equipment breaks, no one’s here to troubleshoot, things get stolen or lost or whatever. It’s just bad news. Don’t kid yourself, you know it’s true.

I’m sorry but that’s just how it is. Please remember are MANY times during the week that studios are unoccupied. For example:

Etching is open:
Wednesday from 2PM – 2AM
Thursday from 3PM – 6PM

Litho is open:
Monday 7AM – 4PM
Wednesday 2PM – 2AM
Thursday 3PM – 2AM

Screenprinting is open:
Monday 3PM – 2AM
Thursday 8PM-2AM

Come in and work!

Then of course everything is open from 10PM – 2 AM, and all weekend. For those of you particularly upset about this, remember that if you go to bed early, the shop is nearly EMPTY on Saturdays + Sundays before noon.

As far as the last day for access, the building will shut down on Sunday, May 9th. Details on this will be sent out as that date approaches.

Thanks all, good luck on all of your finals. Kyle.

José Roca This Week! (really really!)

Campus,Department,Events,Lectures — KVH @ 1:01 pm, Monday, April 5th, 2010

José Roca will be speaking in Main 110 tomorrow (Wednesday) at 12:30,
(not in Brown.)

José Roca, Chief Curator and Artistic Director for Philagrafika 2010 will be on campus this week.

Deja vu you say? NO! He was snowed out back in February.

José Roca kicks off his visit with an Art @ Lunch lecture in Brown 320 MAIN 110 on Wednesday, April 7th at 12:30.

From the Philagrafika Website:

José Roca is a Colombian curator working out of Bogotá and Philadelphia, where he is currently Artistic Director of Philagrafika 2010. He managed the arts program at the Banco de la República in Bogotá for a decade, establishing it as one of the most respected institutions in the Latin American circuit.

Roca was a co-curator of the I Poly/graphic Triennial in San Juan, Puerto Rico (2004), the 27th Bienal de São Paulo, Brazil (2006), the Encuentro de Medellín MDE07(2007), and of Cart[ajena], a series of urban interventions in Cartagena, Colombia (2007). He was a jury for the 52nd Venice Biennial (2007).

Recent curatorial projects include: Muntadas: Mechanisms of the Image, Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo, Brazil (upcoming 2010); Välparaíso, a series of urban interventions in Valparaíso, Chile (upcoming 2010); Other Florae, Galeria Nara Roesler, São Paulo, Brazil (2008); Phantasmagoria: Specters of Absence, traveling exhibition co-organized by iCI and the Museo de Arte del Banco de la República (2007-2009); Botánica Política, Sala Montcada/La Caixa, Barcelona (2004); Traces of Fridayart, tourism, displacement, ICA, Philadelphia (2003).

In addition to his lecture, José Roca will be conducting a number of critiques in the Printmaking Department.  Critiques will take place from 2:30-5;30 on Wednesday, and 10-12 / 1-3 on Thursday, in the 3rd fl computer lab (and possibly 1st floor Etching area… we shall see!)

Those receiving critiques have already been chosen, but we are encouraging anyone interested (this means YOU) to sit in and participate at these times.

Critiques will be approximately 45 minutes long.

If you are remotely interested in the world of contemporary print, you will be sorely disappointed if you miss this.
