Alumni has solo show & review in Art in America

Author: Craig Fineburg

Described by some as a deliberately provocative artist, Yuskavage’s work is well known for imagery based on the sexualized female figure; a style that is at once erotic, cartoonish, vulgar and angelic. Her early work was, as Yuskavage describes, “so demure, so tasteful, so full of shame and very conservative.” She eventually rejected it, and gave up painting for a year. When she came back, her work took on a completely new dimension, pushing the sexual envelope. No longer did her paintings make people feel comfortable, and this delighted her. She has been exhibiting extensively ever since, including solo exhibitions at The Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin Ireland; the Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City; Royal Academy of Arts, London, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, among others.

2013 Diamond Research Scholars Announced

Author: Kayla Cropper

The 2013 Diamond Research Scholars have been announced. The program, funded by the Provost’s Office, will give 25 undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in a faculty mentored research/creative project during the summer and fall semester. Tyler’s Painting junior Olivia Menta and Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM junior Corinne Bishop will be given this opportunity. “I’ve actually applied for the scholarship every year that I’ve been at Temple and this was the first time I’ve received it, so getting the acceptance letter was absolutely amazing,” Menta said. “It was difficult to not be able to talk to my Mom (she edits my writing, always and is probably my toughest critic) and directly talk to my mentor, Mark Shetabi, because I’m studying in Rome right now, but somehow we made it all work during the application process.” Read More

Students assisted Mary Smull's piece

Author: David Rhoads

Students in the Structural Embellishment class assisted in creating Working Hard or Hardly Working by Mary Smull.  In Working Hard or Hardly Working, Smull presented a series of hand-stitched polar fleece blankets that pay homage to Sol LeWitt, On Kawara, and Robert Morris—artists whose conceptual approaches deal with the parameters of artistic labor. Exhibition visitors were encouraged to relax on the gallery sofa under the conceptual blanket of their choosing, peruse a stack of readings, and listen to the companion audio piece I Don't Know How They Do It: Rock songs about the work of making rock music.

Founder’s Garden Installation

Author: Kayla Cropper

Junior Fibers and Materials Studies major Lauren Koch was recently approved to install a piece in The Founder’s Garden. To get her installation approved, Koch went through an extensive application process. “I filled out an installation control form, which is basically a description of the work, date and time of the installation, and a drawing of the piece itself,” Koch said. “After getting the signature of my professor, Pazia Mannella, I returned it to be reviewed by Tyler’s Assistant Dean, Carmina Cianciulli. Because I chose to install it on Temple’s campus, it also needed to be reviewed by the Director of Student Center Operations, Jason Levy, and the Superintendent of Grounds, Glenn Eck. After their review it was approved!” Getting an installation approved to be placed on campus can sometimes be difficult, but Koch was unaware of this when she chose The Founder’s Garden as the location for her installation.
