Alumna Nadja Verena Marcin '10 In Two Exhibitions

September 28, 2018

 

Alumna Nadja Verena Marcin '10 was recently included in an exhibition from September 17 through October 12 at Taipei Economic and Cultural Office. The exhibition included all entrees for the Climate Change Action Award, “an annual series of events that showcase artists creating climate-inspired public works and actions,” according to the website.

 

Marcin also has an exhibit with Art in Odd Places entitled Cover Girls (2017), which is a poster series playing upon “the animosity of said photographic avatars and the viewer’s human experience.” The installation will run from October 11 through October 14 at 7 East 14th Street and Westbeth Gallery.

 

In Marcin’s performance-based work “she examines the constructed persona, looking at the way the artist is an implicit figure. By creating a ‘heater of cinema’ that the audience can be immersed in, she brings awareness through a hyperbolic interpretation of relatable scenarios, enacts symbolic actions, catalyzing the visibility of hidden codes. Her work appropriates familiar imagery and mirrors the ambiguities of human behavior and psychological mechanism."


 

Marcin’s work has been presented internationally at: Abrons Art Center (New York), ZKM- Museum for Art and Media (Karlsruhe), Garage Museum of Contemporary Art (Moscow), Zendai MOMA, Shanghai (Himalajas Museum), Museo National de Arte (La Paz), Veneto Videoart Archive (Verona), Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (New York), Museum Ludwig (Cologne), Human Resources (Los Angeles), Jinsun Gallery (Seoul), Berkeley Art Museum (Berkeley), ICA Philadelphia, Kunstmuseum (Bonn), 5th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art (Moscow), Palacio Portales (Cochabamba), Haus der Kunst (Munich), Momentum | Kunstquartier Bethanien (Berlin), NADA (New York), Hudson Valley Contemporary Art Center (Peekskill), Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten (Marl), Microscope Gallery (Brooklyn), Aesthetica Art Prize (York), Whitney Houston Biennale (New York), among many others.
