A roundup of ideas and projects from around the Institute

Week of April 25, 2022

The Myrtle Avenue sidewalk was transformed into a catwalk, public art space, pop-up shop, and more at the recent Foundation Expanded event. See more @prattinstitute.

The Fine Arts and Photography MFA 2022 Thesis Exhibition was reviewed on Hyperallergic: “It would not take a great leap to imagine the same show at the New Museum or the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, rather than at 630 Flushing Avenue in Brooklyn.” The work is on view through May 6.

Jackie Hoving, adjunct assistant professor in Foundation, made XOXO for the spring 2022 Foundation Expanded on Myrtle Avenue. Read more about the installation and how it highlighted student work @prattfoundation.

Pratt Trustee and alumnus Derrick Adams, BFA Art and Design Education ’96, received a $1.25 million award from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the Black Baltimore Digital Database. The new archive will catalog important achievements in Black Baltimore culture.

An illustration by Jeff Deng, AOS Graphic Design ’23, entitled “Distress” was chosen to appear in the online archive for AI-AP’s American Illustration 41 juried competition. Deng is one of 99 students whose work was selected from 7,000 submitted images.

Pratt fashion alumna Mo Glover was featured by the BK Reader in a story on her children’s fashion line that highlights her time at Pratt and the support from Made in NYC, an initiative of the Pratt Center for Community Development.

Gaeun Jeong, AOS Graphic Design ’22, was awarded the Graphis Silver Award for New Talent 2022 for three posters created in the Posters for a Cause project that was part of the fall 2021 Typography III class. Her work raises awareness for endangered species by representing the Nature Conservancy.

Brook Boughton, MArch ’22, is included in the 2022 Metropolis Future100. It recognizes some of the top graduating architecture and interior design students in the United States and Canada as nominated by their instructors and mentors.

The spring 2022 issue of Aperture features work by Marilyn Nance, BFA Communications Design ’76, from 1977 when she traveled to Nigeria and photographed the Second World Black and African Festival of Arts and Culture (FESTAC). The images will be featured in a forthcoming book called Last Day in Lagos.

“Hyperbolic Sericulture” by undergraduate architecture student Ellis Donahue takes inspiration from arachnid and lepidoptera silk spinning to create a landscape of traversable thresholds upon which visitors can climb, hang, and rest. See more @prattsoa.
