Sara Magenheimer will be in conversation with Peter Rose after the screening.
The work of Philadelphia filmmaker Peter Rose concisely embodies the concerns of the “Puzzling” series: the navigation and unraveling of semiotic systems, collisions of sense and non-sense, and the implications of the act of looking. Two major works from the early 1980s, THE MAN WHO COULD NOT SEE FAR ENOUGH and THE PRESSURES OF THE TEXT, frame these ideas with Rose’s signature combination of intellectual rigor, technical facility, and sense of play. Representing Rose’s work with computers in the 1990s, his short video GENESIS highlights the contradictory and simultaneous experiences of distance and intimacy afforded by technology. A Guggenheim and NEA Fellow, Rose has exhibited his work at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Biennial, the Centre Pompidou, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, and Anthology Film Archives.

Sara Magenheimer in person for a discussion moderated by Sukhdev Sandhu Associate Professor in the Department of English at NYU and founder of the Colloquium For Unpopular Culture.
The experience of encountering a language you do not understand, with its opacities, surface poetics, and implications of meaning, is central to this program. “New Language Acquisition” begins by exploring possibilities for linguistic, nonverbal, and spatial communication. Conversely, techniques of deconstruction serve as a means to decode or untether the semiological. What can an image and sound sign? What is deemed legible or illegible? In the words of writer and artist Mel Baggs: “I find it very interesting…that failure to learn your language is seen as a deficit, but failure to learn my language is so natural that people like me are officially described as ‘mysterious’ and ‘puzzling,’ rather than anyone admitting that it is themselves who are confused.”
Clay Club at SculptureCenter
Saturday August 18, 2018 10am-2pm
Alisa Baremboym, ektor garcia, Ficus Interfaith, Steffani Jemison, Sara Magenheimer, and Jesse Wine
SculptureCenter was founded as Clay Club in 1928 by sculptor Dorothea Denslow. While Clay Club’s art courses and exhibitions generally took place in Denslow’s Brooklyn studio, or, slightly later, in a carriage house on West 8th Street, the organization’s artists and students gathered on Staten Island every summer from 1928 to 1939 to picnic and collectively build temporary monumental sculptures out of natural clay
On Saturday August 18, SculptureCenter will revive its founding summer tradition by inviting six artists to reconsider the idea of group sculpture that motivated the original Clay Club parties.
SculptureCenter’s Long Island City exhibition space will open to the public with more than two thousand pounds of clay available for participation in artist-led projects or for free use.
Join us from 10am to 2pm, for music, food and drinks by local vendors, and drop-in art projects. This program is free, open to the public, and for all ages. No RSVP is required.
