USF Institute for Research in Art in the College of The Arts launches its first major virtual exhibition, “Life During Wartime: Art in the Age of the Coronavirus”

Life During Wartime: Art in the Age of the Coronavirus

An Evolving Online Exhibition

Curated by Christan Viveros-Fauné; organized by USFCAM

June 6 – December 12, 2020

The USF Contemporary Art Museum, part of the USF Institute for Research in Art in the College of The Arts, will launch its first major virtual exhibition, Life During Wartime: Art in the Age of the Coronavirus. It humbly engages a select company of international artists to respond to the overwhelming realities of the crisis that has gripped the planet since March 5, the date the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. The exhibition takes full advantage of one of the few outlets artists still have–the Internet– during a public health emergency recently exacerbated by the wanton murder of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis. It aims to mobilize sentiment, thought and activity around art and its enduring possibilities: its role as a conceptual catalyst, its ability to trigger ideas, stories, conversations, emotions, feelings and mental states. Separately and together, each artist contribution provides a picture of a planet in crisis, now further enraged and victimized by violence, but also images of hope and optimism in the face of a global emergency. The exhibition will continue to evolve with the addition of new artists and materials. Life During Wartime: Art in the Age of Coronavirus is supported in part by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Online Opening // Saturday, June 6, 1 -3 pm EDT

featuring participating artists Basil Kincaid, Cristina Lucas, Narsiso Martinez, and Spencer Tunick.

Join online from the exhibition website. (Exhibition website opens 10am EDT; Zoom link will be live at 12:45pm EDT).

Unsentimental Education: Lisa Yuskavage and Jarrett Earnest

Tuesday, February 25 / 7:00 PM

McNally Jackson / 4 Fulton Street, New York, NY 10038

In his text for the new monograph Lisa Yuskavage: Babie Brood Jarrett Earnest analyzes the artist’s early education, both in art schools and life experiences, setting the stage for a lifetime of painting. Their relationship sparked in 2014 when Yuskavage dropped in on Earnest’s class “Object Lessons” at the Bruce High Quality Foundation, the now closer experimental free art school in the east village. They swiftly became friends and collaborators, embarking on a multi-year interview project. To celebrate this new publication, Yuskavage and Earnest will discuss the dynamics of education for artists, their shared interest in psychoanalysis and how it relates to writing and painting, and the role of narrative within art, memory, and history.

Please visit McNally Jackson’s website for further details.

POWER/CULTURE Part Two: The Power of the Artist/Creator

Monday, February 3 / 6:30 PM

The Kitchen / 512 West 19th Street, New York

David Zwirner Books and The New York Review of Books are pleased to announce POWER/CULTURE, a four-part series of public talks that will bring together leading writers, artists, and thinkers to explore the role of power within the cultural sphere. The talks will examine the shifting power of the critic, the public, the patron, and the artist, both historically and within today’s cultural landscape. Hosted by Lucas Zwirner, head of content at David Zwirner, and Daniel Mendelsohn, editor-at-large of The New York Review of Books, the talks will take place at David Zwirner’s New York galleries.

This will be the second talk in the series focusing on the artists/creators. The panelists include: Lisa Yuskavage, Jeremy O. Harris, Elizabeth Alexander, and Fran Lebowitz. Moderated by Daniel Mendelsohn.
