Curator Talk
May 16, 7pm

apexart once again partners with high school students from Satellite Academy to present their exhibition The Blue Print. From the Ground Up. The student curators organize all aspects of the project including developing interpretations of artists' work, writing publicity materials, and developing the exhibition theme. Through installation, new media and fine arts, these Curatorial Studies students explore works of art that address different relationships of power in the city. Students connect their personal experience and their life in New York City to visual and architectural manifestations of power and ideology around them. They will closely look at the architecture in their neighborhoods such as East New York, Harlem and the Bronx. Some of the topics explored are:

Popular culture and Hip-Hop culture related to city planning and architecture
The historical meaning and relevance of architecture
Concepts of Utopia
The Student Curators are: Caroline Garcia, Michael Muniz, Arlene Dejesus, Karicia William, Christopher Luis, Marcus Gray. Bakisya Kia Olivier, Myriah Torres, Raisa Valeria, Chris Cornwell, Jennifer Villakan, Eveyln Amaker, Stephanie Manguel, Kevohn John, Tashawn Davis and Ricardo Roland.

Eighteen students have participated in a one-semester program that combines daily art classes and professional hands-on experience in exhibition planning with the guidance of artist/educator Bea Schlingelhoff and ABACA director Elizabeth Cavanagh. As part of the curatorial process the students have visited and discussed several current contemporary art exhibitions and have met with artists to learn more about their artistic practice. Students then decide which artists they would like to present in their exhibition, plan the installation of the works of art and the Curator's Talk.
