The Department of Art Practice welcomes artist Stephanie Syjuco to our faculty in Spring 2014! Stephanie creates large-scale spectacles of collected cultural objects, cumulative archives, and temporary vending installations, often with an active public component that invites viewers to directly participate as producers or distributors. Working primarily in sculpture and installation, her projects leverage open-source systems, shareware logic, and flows of capital, creating frictions between high ideals and everyday materials. She is currently collaborating with the FLACC Workplace for Visual Artists in Genk, Belgium, on a new body of works utilizing 3-D scanning of Belgian and Congolese antiquities to produce hybrid ceramic objects addressing the legacy of colonialism, empire, and trade routes.
The Department of Art Practice welcomes photographer and writer Allan deSouza who joined us this fall! Rigorously innovating photography through his uses of collage, rephotography, narrative strategies borrowed from other media, and digital interventions, deSouza’s creative research suggests new frameworks for thinking about race, visuality, and representation in a global context. An experienced teacher, deSouza has taught at the Art Institute of Chicago, the California Institute of the Arts, UC Irvine, Vermont College, and San Francisco Art Institute.
