The Visitor Talks – Dialogues: CCS Bard & Judd Foundation at 101 Spring Street

April 24, 2015 from 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Judd Foundation - 101 Spring Street, NYC

Matter to Whom?

Organized by Staci Bu Shea and Alexis Wilkinson, graduate students at The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College.

This event considers how our physical proximity to objects often alters our visual, corporeal, and emotional connections. Incorporating performance and lecture, Matter to Whom? explores the intimate points of contact between bodies and objects, forged within the practices of New York based artists Katherine Hubbard and Jen Rosenblit.

Katherine Hubbard is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Her practice recognizes the critical intersection of photography, performance, and writing as a mark of ontological refusal through which we may re-look at how we structure meaning. Her most recent solo exhibition Four shoulders and thirty five percent everything else, a landscape photography show of work made over the past 3 years in southern Utah, was presented at Capricious 88, NY. Additionally, Hubbard’s work has been exhibited at Renseriet, Stockholm, Sweden; Vox Populi, PA; University of Maryland Stamp Gallery, MD; The Museum of Art and Design, NY; Higher Pictures, NY and Murray Guy, NY. Hubbard maintains an ongoing collaboration with A.K. Burns, exploring the history of queer aesthetics, iterations of which have been exhibited at Recess, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Museum of Art and Design, The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Museum of Modern Art, all in New York. Forthcoming in 2015, she will present Small Town Sex Shop, a conceptual clothing project in collaboration with Savannah Knoop at Recess, NY. Hubbard has an MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College, and is currently part-time faculty at Parsons The New School for Design.

Jen Rosenblit has been making performance in New York City since 2005. Rosenblit is a recipient of a 2014 New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for Emerging Choreographer, is an inaugural recipient of THE AWARD, a 2014-2015 workspace artist through LMCC, a 2013 Fellow at Insel Hombroich (Germany), a recipient of the 2012 Grant to Artists from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and a 2009 Fresh Tracks artist (Dance Theater Workshop). Rosenblit has received commissions from The Kitchen (a Natural dance, 2014, Bessie Award), New York Live Arts (In Mouth, 2012), Danspace Project (When Them, 2010), and Issue Project Room (Pastor Pasture, 2013) in collaboration with composer Jules Gimbrone. Rosenblit’s new work, Clap Hands, is supported by residencies at Tanzhaus (Zurich), The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (Atlanta, GA) and The Chinati Foundation (Marfa, TX), and will premiere in spring 2016 at The Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn, NY, co-presented with New York Live Arts. Rosenblit is also currently making Swivel Spot, a companion solo for Clap Hands. Rosenblit has worked as a performer and collaborator with artists including Young Jean Lee, Ryan McNamara, Yvonne Meier, Sasa Asentic, Anne Imhof, Miguel Gutierrez, and Simone Aughterlony. Recent works focus on an improvisational approach to choreographic thought, locating ways of being together amidst impossible spaces.
