Itty Neuhaus, Sublimation: An Iceberg’s Story, 2018
.edu: Art Faculty of the Hudson Valley juror Amy Lipton (curator, ecoartspace) engages in conversation with artist Itty Neuhaus over artistic practice, teaching in higher-education, and the Hudson Valley art scene. Itty Neuhaus is Associate Professor of Art at SUNY New Paltz; awards include the Fulbright Arctic Initiative in 2015 in which she worked with robotics engineers measuring the deterioration of Arctic icebergs.
Neuhaus’ artwork, Am I Mist or Am I Mountain, will be shown at Hudson Valley MOCA. This installation is a multi-media piece consisting of a painted mylar scroll that hangs floor-to-ceiling; a video is projected into a “pond” where the painting meets the floor. Filmed around a glacial waterfall in Iceland, where 27 waterfalls flow into one; the artist performs for the camera to this ultimate joining with the environment.
The talk will be followed by a closing reception for .edu: Art Faculty of the Hudson Valley. Light refreshments will be served.
