WISH YOU WERE HERE
LOOKING TO HEAR
Mishkin Gallery is pleased to announce WISH YOU WERE HERE and LOOKING TO HEAR—two new online exhibitions curated by Baruch College MA in Arts Administration candidates.
With Covid-19 continuing to peak around the world, traditional social relations are mediated ever more online. What are the ways in which learning about, making, showing and experiencing art beyond the “white cube” might be reimagined? Responding to the very real and current crisis, Baruch College’s MA in Arts Administration candidates conducted extensive research in the summer 2020 Contemporary Issues in Curating course, where historical and contemporary examples of institutions, exhibition making, and artistic practices that rethink modes of accessibility and equitable spaces were examined. Together, students devised two projects situated between the theory discussed and the practice of curating within the new digital cultural context we face.
WISH YOU WERE HERE and LOOKING TO HEAR are two online exhibitions that offer new perspectives on the often-overlooked artworks covering the hallways throughout campus. Using the Baruch College art collection, students collectively organized exhibitions designed to operate within this networked, screen-based culture, but to also function beyond it. To make the projects as accessible as possible, they live both online and physically throughout campus via QR codes which generate tailored audio guides. These two exhibitions exemplify the public facing scholarship developed out of a growing collaboration between the MA in Arts Administration program and the Mishkin Gallery.
The exhibitions have been curated by Josey Bartlett, Jason Brown, Jess DeAngelis, Rachel Deen, Fay Duftler, Rob Maitner, Amanda McDowall, Sam Meyer, Pola Mora, Stephanie O’Brien, Kristy Pavlick, Madeline Pollis, Sara Ramsawak, Dasom Sohn, Patricia Stachowicz, Yesseña Whitfield, Tim Wroten, and Magda Zdunczyk.
