QCC Art Gallery/CUNY

QCC Art Gallery/CUNY The QCC Art Gallery of the City University of New York is a vital educational and cultural resource for the Queensborough Community College, the Borough of Queens and the surrounding communities.
(17)

The Gallery is housed in the historic 1920's Oakland Building, formerly the Club House for the Oakland Country Club. Since 1966, the QCC Art Gallery has been an integral part of the College's educational program. The QCC Art Gallery was founded by the first Chairman of the College's Department of Art and Photography, Priva B. Gross, and was maintained largely through the support and vision of this department. On October 25, 1981, after five years of planning, the Gallery opened to the public with its first exhibit in its present facility, the historic Oakland Building, the oldest permanent structure on the campus. The design for the gallery was generated through a student competition, in a design class in the Department of Mechanical Engineering Technology and Design Drafting. Ms. Marsha Narowlansky, winner of the competition, as part of the award, joined the QCC Office of Campus Planning to supervise the execution of her architectural plan. Contributions from the Queensborough Student Association and Department of Art and Photography financed the renovation.

Mission: Housed on the grounds of the College, the QCC Art Gallery/CUNY reaches out to contribute to the educational and cultural vitality of the College and surrounding community. The Gallery's mission is to collect and preserve; present and interpret; educate and motivate; and stimulate new art production.

Rewoven: Innovative Fiber Art - Featured Artist of the Day - Huang Wen-Ying 黃文英:

Huang Wen-Ying graduated from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1993 with a concentration in fiber arts. She currently teaches at Tainan National University of the Arts, and continues to produce art using textiles. Starting in 2001, Huang has studied and practiced computerized Jacquard hand weaving, and since that time she has continued to develop this artistic form and explore its expressive possibilities.

Episode 1 evokes the impermanence of life, the heartlessness of nature, and the fragility of human civilization. In this work, Huang Wen-Ying weaves a piece of cloth using three pictures; when viewed in three different ways-under ordinary light, UV light, and in darkness-the three different images in the work are revealed in turn, and bring to mind the ceaseless contention, dependence, contradiction, and conflict between heaven, earth, and humankind.

Rewoven: Innovative Fiber Art - Featured Artist of the Day - Poyen Wang

Born in Taichung, Taiwan and based in New York, Poyen Wang has a background in Graphic Design. He received an MFA in New Media Art from Taipei National University of the Fine Arts in Taiwan, and is currently pursuing a second MFA in Computer Art through the School of Visual Arts in New York. Wang is a conceptual media artist interested in experimental animation and video art. His work has been shown at museums, galleries and film festivals nationally and internationally, including National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, The Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum and Sapporo International Art Festival in Japan, FILE: Electronic Language International Festival in São Paulo, Screengrab International Media Arts Award in Australia and Shenzhen Independent Animation Biennial in China.

The work "Construction of Intimacy," refers to the process of developing the cognitive self, which is partially shaped by the opinions, reactions, and evaluations of others. For this piece, Wang scanned his body. Gathering images from multiple cameras at various angles, he generated a 3D model from the composite data. Though the final digital 3D model is complete, each individual image captured from a single camera at a specific angle is incomplete.

Rewoven: Innovative Fiber Art - Featured Artist of the Day - Hui-Lin Chuang:

Chuang Hui-Lin was born in Kaohsiung in 1979. Chuang earned her degree from the Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts of Taipei National University of the Arts, and currently lives and works in Banqiao. Chuang specializes in mixed media sculpture and installation art, and her work is inspired by her urban experiences and impressions. She uses images, materials, and spaces to express her subtle mental reactions to the environments in which she finds herself. Using man-made products, Chuang Hui-Lin variously portrays the creation of nature, and calmly and painstakingly expresses the dependence, coexistence, conflict, and destruction that characterize the relationship of humans and the natural world.

The artist has given commonly-seen industrial source material new life as biomorphic objects, and uses them to relate the interdependent relationship of man-made objects and nature. People consume natural resources in their pursuit of more convenient material life, but in their spiritual worlds, they long to return to nature and revere the myriad things of nature. In this contradiction, "biomorphic" is an indispensable aspiration.

Rewoven: Innovative Fiber Art - Featured Artist of the Day - Catherine Lan:

Lan lives and works in Queens, NY; she was born in Taipei, Taiwan in 1980. Currently a doctoral student in Art and Art Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, she obtained an MFA in Painting/Printmaking from Yale University (2007-2009), an Artist Diploma from École Nationale Supérieure Des Beaux-arts in Paris (2003-2006), and Bachelors in Oil Painting from Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing (1999-03). She is a recipient of the Queens Council on the Arts Grant for Individual Artists (2015), and received the Andrea Frank Foundation Sanyu Scholarship from Yale University (2008-2010).

Lan explores esoteric new possibilities utilizing fashion and new media and materials such as synthetic fur, painting on plastic, video, glass sculpture, and performance to address themes including feminism and individuality. In her series of faux fur "relief paintings" she cuts fur to form relief-like “paintings” of undulating surfaces with modulated texture begging to be touched. Much like ink painting, the process is spontaneous and irreversible. The surface of the fabric changes color and texture with the motion of viewer and as the fabric is stroked the light projects different scenery.

Rewoven: Innovative Fiber Art - Featured Artist of the Day - Wei-Lin Yang:

Yang received a MFA from the Graduate Institute of Applied Arts, Tainan National University of the Arts. Yang currently teaches in the Department of Material Arts and Design at Tainan National University of the Arts. She has participated in numerous international fiber art exhibitions, including Japan's 2013 Setouchi Triennale, and received an award of excellence in the 4th National Craft Awards.
Recently, she has directed the "Taiwan Fiber Art Research Project," and has engaged in numerous large-scale public fiber art projects and exhibition planning efforts. Yang's artistic themes commonly revolve around memory, time, communication, and writing. She uses a wide range of materials and techniques, including weaving, vegetable dying, paper-making, and book-binding.

The exhibition features Yang's work titled: Stream of Consciousness from the Collection of the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts.

Rewoven: Innovative Fiber Art - Featured Artist of the Day - Lulu Meng:

Meng lives and works in Ridgewood, Queens. She received a BA in drama and theater from National Taiwan University and an MFA in Imaging Arts, Photography and Related Media from Rochester Institute of Technology. Meng has participated as an artist-in-residence at venues such as Residency Unlimited (Brooklyn), Vermont Studio Center, Kala Art Institute (Berkeley), DordtYart (Netherlands), and WARP Artist Village (Belgium). Her works have been exhibited in Cuchifritos Gallery (New York), New York Hall of Science, Queens Botanical Garden, Power Plant gallery (Durham), Berkeley Art Center, William Harris Gallery, and National Taiwan University. She is currently participating in the AIM program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts.

The work exhibited in the exhibition Rewoven: Threshold - explores the formation and relationships of individual and social identities. Elongated sleeves have been constructed from different white cloths from white dress shirts. Sleeves—familiar objects relating to the human body—are deconstructed and transformed into arrays of hanging pieces. They aggregate into tall and flexible structures with a conspicuous human-shaped opening. The viewer can interact with this piece by speculating which of the three openings would accommodate him. Consideration of whether and how to adjust himself to the opening recapitulates the individual’s negotiation with the social environment. It is noteworthy that the fabric of society, represented by the woven cloth, rebounds and returns to its original state after disturbance by the individual. #Rewoven #QCCArtGallery #TAAC
