Gabriel Barcia–Colombo – 3/14/2013
Wednesday March 14 at 4:00 pm,
"For Those Who Wait" visiting artist lecture with Gabriel Barcia–Colombo in TE 152
Wednesday March 14 at 12:00 noon, Workshop with the artist in TE 352 (contact Preston Poe)
"For Those Who Wait" 2011 is an interactive video sculpture about the physicality of time. 10 video projected clocks hang motionless in a room. As the viewer winds up a crank the clocks come to life, their hands spinning out of control until they self-destruct in a variety of animations.
Gabriel Barcia-Colombo's work focuses on memorialization and, more specifically, the act of leaving one's imprint for the next generation. His video sculptures play upon this exigency in our culture to chronicle, preserve and wax nostalgic, an idea which Barcia-Colombo renders visually by
"collecting" human beings (alongside cultural archetypes) as scientific specimens. Barcia-Colombo was a 2012 TED fellow, and has exhibited his work as such places as the Elga Wimmer Gallery, the 92Y Tribeca, and 3rd Ward in New York, and the Yerba Buena Arts Center in San Francisco, CA.

Jenny Morgan – 4/4/2013
Thursday April 4 at 5:00 pm,
"Beyond Vision: messages from the holographic universe" Visiting Artist Lecture in FH 111
Beyond Vision is a themed group exhibition that explores the extra-physical phenomena of our universe. In such varied media as painting, video, photography, sculpture and even quilts, each artist in this show presents a different example of how we might envision or visually communicate the paranormal. The featured artist of this show is Jenny Morgan who will visit SU in April 2013. Morgan is a figurative painter living and working in Brooklyn, NY. Her work
"formulates a grounded state of hyper-sense while stripping each figure she paints to their spiritual core." Her masterful paintings, while grounded in contemporary realism, go beyond mere representation to suggest alternate realities and psychedelia. Morgan’s work has been widely exhibited and featured in many publications such as High-Fructose, L Magazine, and the New York Times Magazine. She is currently represented by Plus Gallery in Denver and Driscoll-Babcock Gallery in New York.
