    The Many Seasons of Ilona Szwarc

    The Many Seasons of Ilona Szwarc

    Join Kris, Jacob and Lisa along with guests Ruth Jeyaveeran and Tracy Le as we chat with Ilona Szwarc about her work during Field Residency! We discuss the different experiences Ilona had at Yale and SVA and her latest project on Seasonal Color in Fashion. This work continues her long term exploration of “the expert” in art, fashion, “beauty,” and photography wherein Ilona takes on the role of the expert, casting “look alike” models along side her to create images reflecting the expert who forms and molds pupils to their image. Some of the topics we discuss are: 
     
    The first popular book on the seasons is: "Color: The essence of you" by Suzanne Caygill (We HIGHLY recommend checking this out, it’s a wild ride).https://www.amazon.com/Color-Essence-You-Suzanne-Caygill/dp/0890871957 
    Johannes Itten was a painter and the first person to use the term Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter as it related to color and it was the foundation for the development of seasonal color analysis.

    MARIA P. VILA & the SECRETO Book Launch!

    MARIA P. VILA & the SECRETO Book Launch!

    Shame, trauma, and healing are at the core of SECRETO, a years-long project by María Luisa Portuondo Vila. Field Projects is honored to unveil the first book produced from this work at our gallery NEXT WEEK, so stay tuned and you can meet with María Luisa yourself! Secrets grip us, and we get into grief, love, death, sex, and abuse in this deeply human conversation. We discuss María Luisa’s early transition from private theater to community centered public works, and what it means to make projects for the public. Ghostly, haunting thoughts of the pandemic time came together in María Luisa ’s project HABITĀR, whose second iteration was completed at Field Projects residency in 2021. This enabled her to make a book that is materially outside the dominant institutional cannon of paper-centric men’s publications! We also cover questions around audience participation and how to make institutions chase you (not the other way around!) through process, not product. 
    PLEASE JOIN US FOR the *SECRETO Book Launch Wednesday October 12, 2022!*
    Our final take away: Reflecting and openness is not related to money and can’t be commercialized, so it is a responsible, anti-market act that helps to better yourself and your community. Be open and love yourself and everyone else you can :)
    CODA: Perfect Lovers discussion.

    INSIDE SPRING/BREAK with Fay Ku

    INSIDE SPRING/BREAK with Fay Ku

    Hand-made paper! Ancient Symposia! Bandages! Jade Suits! Cowboys!
    Today, Jacob and Kris sit down for a post-Spring/Break interview with artist Fay Ku. Fay was Field Project’s featured artist at Spring Break this year in Axonometric Tongue. Ku’s immersive, axonometric installation proposed a radical alternative to the hegemonic eye of single point perspective. We discuss the ins and outs of Spring Break Art Fair and why this fair is one of the best you can participate in as an artist.

    SPRING/BREAK with FAY KU

    SPRING/BREAK with FAY KU

    Floating Cities! Perspective! Blood, String & Jade! 
    On episode 1 of FieldPod season 3 Jacob Rhodes and Kris Racaniello dive into fall and, of course, fall in New York means Spring/Break Art Show with Fay Ku! Fay is Field Project’s featured artist at Spring Break this year in our exhibition Axonometric Tongue. Ku’s immersive, axonometric installation proposes Ming Dynasty art as a radical alternative to the hegemonic eye of single point perspective. Axonometric Tongue flips the hierarchy, generating an alternate, anti-Italian Renaissance timeline wherein single-minded colonialism is eradicated by the contextual poetics of Mandarin structures.
    On this episode we talk about Fay’s formative trip to Rome, and her recent return to Italy to teach in Venice for Pratt. How do “museumified” cities affect us? What changes in space when we change our clothing? How do the poetics of the desert play out differently in drawing than the dynamics of the city? Fay discusses how traveling brings you back to who you are and what you want to be. As an artist born in Taiwan and raised in the United States, Fay also discusses stradling White European renaissance ideals as an artist and her connection with axonometric drawing and historical Chinese methods of perspective.
