Thank you to everyone who came out to support our class for this year’s Slidefest! We are so grateful and honored to share our work. We hope you had as much fun as we did!
Two weeks leading up to the great day I was introducing each member of our class in their element on the @icpschool Instagram account.
The following is within the order I posted leading up to the momentous day last Friday May 6. This is a collection of what we – the class of 2017 – look like when we are at our best:
The First Year ICP-Bard MFA Slidefest countdown continues today with two-out-of-nine (2/9) from class 2017: @emilerubino. Our work certainly could not progress without the help of these magnets, and Emile makes a powerful demonstration with his latest construction here – born out of our last Slidefest brainstorm meeting with @whywelook. At @icp on May 6, 7-9 pm, please come and see why this ephemeral work is Emile-esque in form and content. #slidefest2016 #icpbardmfa #EmileRubino
Slidefest is officially one week away! As the clock ticks we continue with introducing five-out-of-nine (5/9) from the @icpbard class of 2017: @margeviciusman. On May 6, 7-9 pm, watch Sam reemerge from his shadow self as he reflects upon and responds to his first year MFA experiences at @icp – his physical particles will manifest, jump, and turn as quickly as our first year has gone. #slidefest2016 #icpbardmfa
Happy Sunday from @icpbard! Today we are introducing six-out-of-nine (6/9) from class 2017: @cristinabvelasquez. Amidst the dynamic compositional tension between floating heads, glowing hair, and gestural hands, this photo contains a clue pertaining to Cristina's photo practice. She'll tell you more at Slidefest, Friday May 6, 7-9 pm – so soon!! #slidefest2016 #icpbardmfa #class2017 #cristinavelasquez
Melchior de Tinguy
Greetings on this rainy Tuesday from @icpbard. Today, we are introducing seven-out-of-nine (7/9) from the class of 2017: @melchiordetinguy. Melchior's subtle, elegant, and astute perception brings one into a range of states: contemplation; stillness; wonder. Here, we are sharing his bluest iteration – a Romantic, conceptual depiction of the serialization and commodification of the sky. If you look closely there are additional details in this photo that reveal more about his practice. Come this Friday, May 6, 7-9 pm, to Slidefest at @icp to see his latest work. You won't want to miss! #slidefest2016 #icpbardmfa #class2017
@icpbard introduces eight-out-of-nine (8/9) of the first-year MFA class as we get closer to Slidefest: @marla_la_ 🔮. Marla is in touch with a deep inner, spellbinding power source. Her inherent ability to navigate time and space treads the dark side of all things potently mystical. She will extend her blue channel towards you this Friday, May 6, 7-9 pm. #marlahernandez #slidefest2016 #icpbardmfa
