Sheila Pepe Critical Dialogue Series Lecture

Sheila Pepe is an educator and cross-disciplinary artist known for her bold, large-scale, site-specific, web-like installations—often made through a process she calls “improvisational crochet,” using domestic and industrials materials like rope, shoelaces and rubber bands—to address issues of gender and class.

CHLOE BASS Artist Talk

Chloë Bass is a multiform conceptual artist working in performance, situation, conversation, publication, and installation. Her work uses daily life as a site of deep research to address scales of intimacy: where patterns hold and break as group sizes expand. She began her work with a focus on the individual (The Bureau of Self-Recognition, 2011 – 2013), has recently concluded a study of pairs (The Book of Everyday Instruction, 2015 – 2017), and will continue to scale up gradually until she’s working at the scale of the metropolis. Chloë has held numerous fellowships and residencies; 2018’s include a residency at Denniston Hill, the Recess Analog Artist-in-Residence, and a BRIC Media Arts Fellowship. Her projects have appeared nationally and internationally, including recent exhibits at the Knockdown Center, the Kitchen, the Brooklyn Museum, CUE Art Foundation, Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Project Space, The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, the James Gallery, and elsewhere. Reviews, mentions of, and interviews about her work have appeared in ArtforumThe New York TimesHyperallergicThe Brooklyn RailBOMBTemporary Art Review, and Artnews among others. Her forthcoming monograph will be published by The Operating System in Fall 2018; she also has a chapbook, #sky #nofilter, forthcoming from DoubleCross Press. Her short-form writing has been published on HyperallergicArts.Black, and the Walker Reader. She is an Assistant Professor of Art at Queens College, CUNY, where she co-runs Social Practice Queens with Gregory Sholette.

Abigail Lucien

Part familiar, part foreign, Abigail Lucien's sculptures exert an architectural vernacular, echoing structures and boundaries found in residential and commercial spaces. Mirroring forms with inherent dualities, Lucien's work addresses notions of visibility, authenticity, and hybridity as they relate to diasporic identity. In her current solo exhibition at Vox Populi, Face Tan/ Night swim, Lucien enables space for the viewer to navigate the gallery as a tourist, and somewhere between the humming of oscillating fans and odor of an odd citrus allows the voyeur to become the subject.
