“Defenselessness is one of the main unifying characteristics of nearly all of the New Blockheads’ performances. It operates like a document of the times and as an independent phenomenon in art - beyond the context of the times. Many of their actions acquired new, unforeseen meanings.”

An interview with Peter Belyi, co-curator of the exhibition ‘The Brotherhood of New Blockheads (1996 - 2002)’ currently held at Mishkin Gallery. Based on a group of young artists and locals who put on spontaneous performances in Saint Petersburg, Russia between the mid-90s to early 2000s.

Mishkin Gallery thanks all the artists, students, faculty, staff, writers, musicians, educators, art handlers, photographers, security guards, librarians, graphic designers, dogs, coffee, and visitors who joined us throughout 2019.

The Brotherhood of New Blockheads At The Mishkin Gallery, Baruch College

So thrilled that "The Brotherhood of New Blockheads" is reviewed in Forbes by Clayton Press!!!

"The exhibition at The Mishkin Gallery is an archival presentation of works from 1996–2002, curated by Peter Belyi and Assistant Curator, Lizaveta Matveeva. Belyi’s essay confirms that in late 1990s and early 2000s, “Russia was taking on a new form, and a period of as yet undefined hopes seemed to have arrived. A land of absolute prohibition had suddenly been transformed into a territory of barely defined borders, where everything was permitted . . . artists were forced to assume a new identity.”

After Stalin’s death in March 1953—an event that generates no sorrow virtually anywhere on Planet Earth except among some unrepentant apologists—Soviet Russia went through several periods of change.

Artfully Learning

Another brilliant review of Disidencia!

Minerva Cuevas' video "No Room to Play" (2019) is symbolic of the decline of play, public space and autonomy, which psychologist Peter Gray recognizes as a major contemporary issue that is harmful for children’s developmental well-being. Read more about the decline of play in the latest Artfully Learning post, and don't forget to check out Minerva Cuevas' solo show on view through Nov. 1 at Mishkin Gallery:

Minerva Cuevas: Disidencia is a Critic's Pick in Artforum!!

Omnia sunt communia: “All things are held in common.” The artist Minerva Cuevas, who lives and works in Mexico City (where she was also born), asserts this notion time and time again with “Disidencia” (Dissent), her first exhibition in New York. Cuevas’s far-reaching “cartography of resi...

The Mishkin Gallery, located in Baruch College's Administrative Building on 22nd Street, held a gallery talk on Sept. 25 to continue the discussions Mexican artist Minerva Cuevas started in her exhbit Minerva Cuevas: DISIDENCIA .

10/02/2019

What if a McDonald’s is actually a safe space where employees consider it as a place that makes them feel like they are French or they finally fit in the world? What if McDonald’s never gives up on them, supports protests, offers free lunches, creates jobs and keeps telling them “come as you are”?

In 2003, Minerva Cuevas staged a performance with an actor in front of a McDonald's for her video Donald McRonald (France) that is now on view at Mishkin Gallery. The actor in McDonald’s clown costume broadcasted the "secrets" about the nutritional value of food, its underlining relationship to chronic diseases, and their employees' precarious working conditions. In NPR podcast Rough Translation’s 11th episode “Liberté, Égalité and French Fries,” Cuevas’s critique of corporate capitalism takes a new turn.

If you wanted a perfect symbol of what the French detest about America, picture the golden arches of McDonalds It’s fast food. It’s mass produced. You eat it with your hands.

But in this week’s episode, we explore a McDonald’s in Marseille, France that an immigrant community calls their home — a place of neutrality and peace.

When Elvira Leite asked the children of Pena Ventosa what they wanted to do, they decided they wanted to make posters like their parents (who were protesting for better living conditions). When she asked them what their posters would say, they responded “We want a room to work in!” Or “We want a room to play in!”. Space was in demand but that didn’t stop the young citizens from reclaiming the streets they considered theirs as well as everyone else’s.

Last week to see “The Aesthetics of Learning”. Don’t miss the chance to catch some early DIY instructions by Juan Downey, who taught at CUNY in the late 60s and 70s. Downey’s innovations in video, sculpture and interactive performance were concerned with perception and the self, in hopes of generating a more complex & multicultural discourse for generations to come. #pedagogíadeloprimido

Every exhibition has its own dedicated bibliography, IRL and on the library’s website. All books will then circulate back into CUNY for research. Future iterations will include an expanded collection database and 30+ years of our exhibition history. Nerd out! 📚
