This edition: Art Through A CUNY LensTweet
Original tape date: February 3, 2016.
First aired: February 28, 2016.
This month’s Study With the Best features four artists across the CUNY spectrum. Ryan Seslow, who teaches at both Queensborough Community College and York College, is modernizing graffiti art by combing it with animation into something called graffanimation. Jeffrey Mongrain is a sculptor and professor at Hunter College. Praq Rado, a student at Baruch College, immigrated from Albania and has since developed a strong career as an actor and writer. Sarah Cameron Sunde’s work spans both small-scale video pieces and very large – in fact, ocean-sized – socially engaged performance art. She’s currently a student at City College’s new DIAP (Digital and Interdisciplinary Art Practice) program.
