"I made 'Here It Comes' during my first year at Hunter's MFA program, while taking Constance DeJong's 'Sound' class. Constance's classes were extremely popular and notoriously hard to get into, a feat which in my case required patience, tenacity, and a little bit of begging. She later became my thesis advisor, and a year after graduating from the program I included her in 'I Can't Tell You Because I Can't Tell You', a group show about the treachery of narrative which I curated at 601 Artspace in the LES.

DeJong is one of those teachers whose voices stay in the back of your head forever after, helping you along when you're stuck in the studio, whether you're being too much of a perfectionist to actually get a piece finished or too lazy to do what it takes to make it right. She taught me to think about the sound in a video as a protagonist equal to the moving image, and one that can completely change the way a piece is interpreted by a viewer. She taught me to be free and wild in the early stages of a new creation, and also how to hone it in the final stages. Everyone should have a teacher like Constance. I'm not alone in thinking this. Whenever she has a performance or a show in the city, you can count on meeting multiple generations of her students, many of them like me are women making video, sculpture, sound, and everything in between. We're her supporters and fans, grateful students and collaborators.

This piece started as a simple exercise for class, which simply asked to replace a video's original sound with something else. I picked a short video of gentle waves which I shot a couple of years before on the shallow end of a beach in Le Havre, France. I replaced the sounds of the ocean with a soundtrack I made by recording my own voice whispering two overlapping sentences, repeated many times: 'Here it comes' and 'It's coming'. I was trying to make a replica of the ocean's sounds with my voice, but also going for something between anticipation and anxiety. It's a ridiculous thing to feel in front of such a calm sea, but isn't the internal landscape always more powerful than the external one?"

The Hunter College Art Galleries’ online project, Constance DeJong: Digital Constellations, is now live on our website with its first three submissions!

In concert with our postponed spring 2020 exhibition Constance DeJong (now rescheduled for fall 2020), this project coincides with DeJong's final semester teaching in Hunter's MFA Studio Art program. Time-based and multi-platform, DeJong’s work has circulated widely and with admiration in literary and performance circles since the late 1970s, influencing both her contemporaries and students. Constance DeJong: Digital Constellations brings together the voices of many artists and writers, mostly Hunter College Studio Art MFA alumni, who have worked closely with DeJong over the last two decades. New submissions will be posted each week.

Constance DeJong: Digital Constellations is organized by Sarah Watson, Jocelyn Spaar, and Liz Naiden, with Lazarus Graduate Fellow Matthew Weiderspon.

The Constance DeJong exhibition and accompanying programming are made possible by a gift from the Legere Family Foundation in honor of daughter Elizabeth Legere (Hunter College MA 2017), and in appreciation of Hunter College distinguished lecturer Constance DeJong and Joachim Pissarro, Bershad Professor of Art History.

The Hunter College Art Galleries are deeply saddened by the recent passing of the art historian, curator, and writer Maurice Berger (1956–2020) due to complications related to COVID-19. Berger received his undergraduate degree from Hunter College and taught at Hunter while pursuing his Ph.D at the Graduate Center. During this time, he also served as the Director of the Hunter College Art Gallery (now the Leubsdorf Gallery). He curated numerous exhibitions during his tenure at Hunter including "Anti-Simulation: Materialism and Abstraction" (1989), "Representing Vietnam, 1965-73" (1988), "Race and Representation" (organized with Lowery Stokes Sims) (1987), "Beyond Formalism: Three Sculptors of the 1960s" (1986), "Political Geometries" (1986), "FSA: The Illiterate Eye "(1985-86), "Repetitions: A Postmodern Dynamic" (1985), and "Endgame: Strategies of Postmodernist Performance," (1984).

As an art historian, Berger’s work focused on the role of race in visual culture. In 1990, he published the essay "Are Art Museums Racist?" in September issue of "Art in America," a text that anticipated many of the critical concerns of our current moment. Berger was a relentless advocate for a more diverse art world and he will be greatly missed.

Dr. Nicole Fleetwood & MOMA-PS1 share a curated video tour of the "Marking Time Exhibition" -- powerful, inspiring work by 44 men & women in the hellholes of #Amerikkka. Their art is full of feeling & meaning...it is beautiful...and a passionate declaration of the humanity of those, mostly people of color, whom this system degrades, despises, and casts off. This is a benefit for Revolution Books in Harlem. Special group rates for educational institutions are available. https://www.facebook.com/events/703904666945419?
