Events
  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

    Anna Craycroft: Tuning the Room

    January 28 - April 16, 2017

    Ben Maltz Gallery

  • Opening Reception

    Jan 28| Special Event
    More

    In acoustical engineering, “tuning the room” is a technique for measuring the specific sound properties of an enclosed space and then adapting the environment to improve its acoustic reflections. New York-based artist Anna Craycroft applies this technique both literally and metaphorically to the Ben Maltz Gallery for her exhibition Tuning the Room. Craycroft’s exhibition asks that we consider how the specific characteristics of an environment shape our experience within it, and how we become attuned in return.

Calendar

Over the past five days, Graduate Public Practice students have held a series of cafe talks
with theorist Stephen Wright, focusing on situations where “social practice” happens
and the words we use to describe it. Starting from the premise that the vocabulary
and even the genealogy of “social practice” has yet to be determined, the conversations,

held in different coffee houses throughout the neighborhood, have focused less on
what social practice “is” than “when” it takes place.  When is the social practiced?
When does a practice become social? Where does it draw its knowledge and inspiration
from? How does it engage with other practices, including the practice of theory?
Please join us for this last conversation, where these same issues will be discussed
and some of the previous days' propositions will be mapped.


House coffee and tamales will be served until supplies last so please arrive on time.
