Thanks to everyone who attended our “Making a Cartonera Book with Paloma Celis Carbajal” workshops!

In these hands-on workshops led by NYPL librarian Paloma Celis Carbajal, participants made their own cartonera books—books with handmade covers constructed with recycled cardboard and other unexpected materials—while learning about the impact and cultural history of this book making practice in Latin American and the Caribbean.

The contents of the book included six texts—essays and poems—on protest by UAlbany's Department of Latin American, Caribbean, and U.S. Latino Studies graduate students who read their work aloud during the session. The volume was edited by faculty from the University at Albany Libraries; Languages, Literatures and Cultures- University at Albany; and Department of Latin American, Caribbean, and U.S. Latino Studies.

The workshop was presented in conjunction with our exhibition "Libros/Arte: Handmade Books from Latin America & the Caribbean" is on view through December 4.

Come see “Yelaine Rodriguez: EBBÓ” on view at the University Art Museum

Yelaine Rodriguez’s 2021 film EBBÓ (“Sacrifice”) reinterprets a 1998 chamber opera by Cuban composer Louis Aguirre telling a tragic story of devotion and defiance.

Rodriguez sets the film among colonial ruins and the shores of the Dominican Republic where two dancers, Jeremy Antonio Caro and Rayser Rafelina Campusano Rosario, perform to the turbulent music in costumes Rodriguez designed.

As with all of Rodriguez’s meticulously researched work, which encompasses video, photography, costume design, and sculptural objects, EBBÓ offers new representations of Afro-Caribbean religious and aesthetic heritages, especially those from Regla de Ocha, or the Rule (Order) of the Orisha—sometimes called Santería.

The 25-minute film is presented as a wall-sized video installation in the UAM’s second-floor Nancy Hyatt Liddle Gallery and runs continuously during museum hours.

Come see 𝘉𝘢𝘳𝘳𝘰𝘸 𝘗𝘢𝘳𝘬𝘦: 𝘚𝘺𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘮𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘔𝘺𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘪𝘦𝘴 on view at the University Art Museum.

Artists Mark Barrow and Sarah Parke explore visual systems at the intersection of art, craft, and technology through their collaborative weaving and painting practice. In these three images, Barrow Parke present different iterations of the red, green, and blue system of pixels used in televisions, computer monitors, and smart phone screens.

“GRB5” (2023) is a newly commissioned piece covering an entire arched bay of four floor-to-ceiling double windows, a grid of translucent half-inch red, green, blue, and black vinyl squares that read like stained glass.

Also on display are Barrow Parke’s sketchbooks and source materials, including graph paper weaving drafts, showing the process behind both the luminous window piece and their woven works of art.

In the woven piece “GRB4” (2014) select red, green, and blue threads within a woven substrate are individually masked out in black paint, resulting in colors that are optically mixed.

With a diverse background in art history, art criticism, and teaching, Shane brings a unique perspective to the UAM, bridging the gap between the museum and the academy.

Shane is a well-regarded art writer contributing scholarly essays, exhibition reviews, and artist interviews for The Brooklyn Rail and Phaidon Press, London, among other notable publications.

In recognition of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month, the UAM continues to take a look back at past exhibiting artists.

Byron Kim’s paintings were included in the UAM exhibition Day After Day: The Diaristic Impulse (2013).

Kim’s Sunday Paintings, begun in 2001, is a record of the daytime sky from wherever the artist found himself each Sunday. A diaristic entry, along with location and time of day, appears directly over the image. Lined up on the wall, the paintings took on a cinematic quality––still frames in an ongoing film.

Kim sent a new Sunday Painting to the UAM each week during the run of the exhibition.

Image description: a small painting of a blue sky with white clouds. Handwritten text at the bottom of the painting reads: “It just rained briefly, so I don’t know how that affects Lisa and my plans to ride bikes to P.S.1. It seems like the traveling and speaking gets in the way of making work. Maybe I need to attach myself to my studio for a while”. “9/30/12, 2:00”

In recognition of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month, the UAM continues to take a look back at past exhibiting artists.

Michelle Young Lee’s works were included in the UAM 2021 exhibition, “Well Being: An Exhibition on Healing and Repair”.

With imagery drawn from the window neon of Asian American shops, Michelle Young Lee’s commissioned neon works serve as a memorial to the six Asian women killed in three Atlanta spas in March 2021. They are a protest against white supremacist violence and femicide, as well as the larger history in the U.S. of anti-Asian violence, which has escalated during the Covid-19 pandemic. Reflecting on the invisible and exploited nature of caring for the human body within nail salon and spa work, Lee revisited and recontextualized these iconic shop sign symbols to suggest multiple meanings and active retorts. The neon hand holding a rose is a familiar nail salon symbol—here the hand oscillates between proffering the flower and a raised solidarity fist. Similarly, a beckoning cat, usually a symbol of fortune and luck, defiantly extends a middle finger. The neon “Thank You” on the ubiquitous red-and-white plastic bag resonates with bitter irony.

In recognition of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month, the UAM continues to take a look back at past exhibiting artists.

Kris Seto is a movement artist, writer, creative director, and somatics healing practitioner who performed the movement piece “The Tip of the Tongue”, which was created in dialogue with visual artist Michelle Young Lee and her neon work “I am the Signal; You Are the Wave” that was part of the UAM exhibition “Well Being: An Exhibition on Healing and Repair” (2021). “The Tip of the Tongue” was a collaborative dance piece that excavated the invisible forces and walls of assimilation we traverse. Part memoir, part movement monument to those who have come before us, it was an unearthing of the unseen, the buried—the physicalization of the ineffable.

Seto’s work explores q***r and Asian diasporic interiority, embodiment, media, and dominant narratives as they live in our bodies. They seek to explore the edges where language fails us and to create containers for possibilities, slippage, and liberation.

Kris is based in NYC and the Catskills by way of Mukilteo, Washington. They have performed and showcased work at Bubble_T, WNYC’s Next Big Thing, The CUNY Dance Initiative, BAM + New York Live Arts’ Everybooty, NY Fashion Week: McQ by Alexander McQueen, WHITE WAVE DUMBO Dance Festival, INSITU, AUNTS, and Movement Research at the Judson Church. In 2015, they co-founded VESSELS, a movement and creative collective, with Shoey Sun.

Image description: Kris Seto in the museum space, performing their movement piece in front of neon wall-mounted sculptures by Michelle Young Lee. 1 neon wall piece depicts a plastic bag with the repeated words “Thank You” One “Thank You” is illuminated with orange neon light. The second neon piece is a white neon hand holding a red neon rose.

The UAM honors our past colleague and artist, Wren Panzella who passed away suddenly on May 8, 2023, at the age of 69.

Wren worked at the UAM from 1997-2010 as the Collections Manager of the University at Albany Fine Art Collections. During her time at the UAM, she worked to obtain a location in the Management Services Building for the collections to be housed and worked with collections staff to develop a collections database, both of which have evolved over the years.

These initial steps Wren took to care for the collections created a foundation for the UAM to preserve, and make accessible the over 3,000 artworks in our holdings to students, faculty, staff, and the larger community.
