Cohen Opens Ladia Guerra & Victoria Kue: Artistic Promise Prize Exhibitions

- Location: Cohen Gallery 55 N Main Street, Alfred
(6:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
- Attachment 1: posters designed by Olivia Piazza
Ladia Guerra and Victoria Kue open concurrent solo shows at the Cohen Gallery on February 2 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm.

Ladia Guerra: The Sweat Life
Ladia is fascinated by the artificial world created by contemporary society and is interested in the actions we take to make our lives happier through consumption and social pressure. She observes this by researching American pop culture through social media, television, and personal experience and manipulates her observations through the self. The self acts as a blank canvas to express feelings about her upbringing and her culture.

"The Sweat Life" explores domestic spaces and the way in which we interact in and view them. The artist has created video works conveying the feeling of loneliness, belonging, and the somewhat grotesque nature of private domestic spaces. The videos insight laughter, feelings of unease, and offer a psychological twist on what a domestic space can be through the lens of commercial objects and characters.

Victoria Kue: what's her face.
Victoria's studio practice stems from her query of autobiography and the investigation of the female narrative within her Hmong-American perspective. Victoria's observations from cultural, bodily and emotional experiences direct her approach to material and representation. Her sculpture, installation, drawings and abstractions evoke conversations about self-identity through patterns, color and language.

"what's her face." pushes back at the familial interrogation of a sexually active Hmong-American woman who negotiates and claims ownership with her identity, body and sexuality. Using the house as the setting to confront self-identity, "what’s her face." explores placement, function and language within domestic objects as a way to recognize the discomfort, struggles and paradoxes within sexual relationships.

The 2016 Cohen Artistic Promise Prize recognized two graduating seniors whose work, hunger, sustained growth and ambition marked them out as those who would continue on as artists beyond their academic training. The Prize, which granted the recipients concurrent solo shows at the Cohen 18 months following graduation, was designed to foster the growth begun in school, encourage the continuation of artistic practice and support the drive needed to reach full artistic potential.

CRISTINA CÓRDOVA: JUNGLA

Friday, February 2 – Sunday, July 29, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, February 2, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Alfred Ceramic Art Museum is pleased to host a major new exhibition of sculpture and drawings by Cristina Cordova. Cristina’s figurative work has established her as one of the preeminent ceramic artists of her generation. Her work renders the figure as a mysterious, sensual force of compelling urgency. Her masterful use of the ceramic medium empowers her work with a mesmerizing, at times uncanny presence.

Happiness Without Struggle

- Location: Robert C Turner Gallery
(6:00 PM - 8:00 PM)
Cost: Free

Sponsored by: Robert C Turner Gallery

Brittany Belvette and Charlie Best are artists and friends, each making work that imagines what “could be” or that reflects “what is”, blending reality, imagination, and illustrative imagery. Surprises can be found in the finer details of their work. As they work, they dedicate time for self care in opposition to a world that demands artists suffer while they work. These pieces are a direct result of that self care.

Queering Space Opening Reception

- Location: Fosdick-Nelson Gallery
(6:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
Sponsored by: Fosdick-Nelson Gallery, Freshman Foundation, Division of Ceramic Art, Division of Art History, Division of Three Dimensional Art

Queering Space at Alfred invites the public to join us in bringing together a community of queer art and artists. Queering Space asks the question: what is a queer perspective and how does queerness meet form? The many propositions put forth by the artists on view refuse to locate those articulations in a fixed position, but rather a fluid space of possibility.

Curated by: Loren Britton, Christie DeNizio, Sara Ferguson, Asad Pervaiz, Res and Erica Wessmann

The exhibition runs through March 28, 2018
