A roundup of ideas and projects from around the Institute

Week of January 17, 2022

Ceramics created by students in a class led by Linda Casbon, visiting assistant professor of fine arts, are on view in the Fine Arts Office Gallery.

(In)Coherence: The Variable Edges Between Us And World, a podcast made as a Pratt STEAMPlant project, launched this month. Created by faculty members Ágnes Mócsy and Ellen Berkovitch with Mary Jo Vath and Iliyan Ivanov, the series features conversations on neuroscience and art.

Check out @PrattLibraries for a sneak peek at artists’ books and zines that are being added to the collection, such as Houseplants by Daniel Gordon that involves pop-up animation engineering by alumnus and Visiting Instructor of Communications Design Simon Arizpe.

Jean Shin, adjunct professor-CCE of fine arts, is featured in 8 Americans on view through January 22 at Chart gallery in Manhattan. The exhibition of work by eight multi-generational Asian American artists explores ideas of shared identity and histories and was reviewed by Artsy, Cultured Magazine, and the New York Times.

The spring semester is now underway! @PrattInstitute shared a couple of recent studio images in anticipation of the next months of creative study.

I Didn’t See You There by Reid Davenport, visiting assistant professor of film and video, is premiering in the US Documentary Competition section at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. The film explores how as a visibly disabled person the filmmaker is often either the subject of an unwanted gaze or rendered invisible.

Pratt’s Semantic Lab received a 2022 Equity in Action grant to work with the Asian American Arts Centre in New York (AAAC) to ensure online access to the resources documenting its work including a collection of around 100 exhibition flyers that will be available on Wikimedia Commons.

Architecture student David Tucker’s “Disclosed” combines the usually insular police station with an open and public library to challenge the way police stations have been designed in the past. See more @prattsoa.
