A roundup of ideas and projects from around the Institute

  • Young Jun Kim, BFA Fine Arts (Jewelry) ’24, was among 50 artists selected by a jury for inclusion in the Spring 2024 catalog from the Society of Arts and Crafts, centered on the theme “The Nature of Imperfection: Jewelry and Adornment.” According to the catalog, one of Kim’s featured pieces—a bracelet titled Forgotten Medal—was “inspired by the artist’s time as a Korean Army tank driver” and acts as a “daily reminder of the artist’s service and a tribute to Korean culture and history.”

  • Carlos Motta, associate professor of interdisciplinary practice in fine arts, is featured on Artsy as an LGBTQ+ artist to celebrate this Pride Month. Léuli Eshrāghi, curator of Indigenous practices at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, says that Motta’s practice “situates a profoundly queer intersectional critique of imperialism and binarism in relation to futurities of queer wellness and fulfillment, which we all need more of!”

  • Pratt alumna SJ Fuerst, who studied painting, was interviewed about her surrealist pop paintings, solo show Gimme Some Sugar, and Andy Warhol for Hunger Magazine. “As an artist, you want as many people as possible to look at your work and be like, ‘I understand’ or ‘I connect with it,’” Fuerst says. 


  • The Brooklyn campus is hosting some new visitors! A family of red-tailed hawks has set up a summer residence at Esther Lloyd-Jones Residence Hall. See them on the livestream from 9 AM to sundown daily.

  • A new article in the London Review of Books contextualizes and considers Last Day in Lagos, a book of photographs by Marilyn Nance, BFA Communications Design (Graphic Design) ’76, that also includes essays and interviews.
