Alumni Work on View at Studio Museum in Harlem, Greater New York

November 19, 2015


Alumna Sondra Perry(’15) is currently exhibiting in two group show: Greater New Yorkat MoMA PS1, and A Constellation, at the Studio Museum in Harlem, where fellow alumna Julia Phillips’s (’15) work is also on view.

The current iteration of MoMA PS1’s prestigiousGreater New Yorkexhibition series, which occurs every five years, focuses on the connections and intersections between emerging and established artists. Curated by Peter Eleey with Douglas Crimp, Thomas Lax and Mia Locks, this year’s show will run through March 7.

A Constellation comprises the work of twenty-six artists of African descent, all of which, according to the museum, explore “themes of the figure, formal abstraction, economy, African diasporic history and materiality” and together form a “constellation” of these ideas. The exhibit was organized by Assistant Curator Amanda Hunt and runs through March 6.

Born in Hamburg and living in New York, Phillips has described her work as “not functional on a physical or mechanical level, but rather on an imaginary one.” She is currently also participating in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. You can view more of her work here.

Perry, born in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, and currently living in Houston, is an interdisciplinary artist working within the areas of video, installation, sound, digital imagery and performance. Her first solo exhibit, Some Type Of Way, was opened last month at the Institute for New Connotative Action (INCA) in Seattle. You can view more of her work here.
