Crane Arts Building Icebox Project Space, Philadelphia

Opening Reception April 9th, 2011
The third installment of the Tyler School of Art: Temple University Alumni Exhibition Series. Began in 2007 with a focus on Painting and in 2009 with a focus on Sculpture, the third exhibition will focus on Works on Paper, divided into two categories, Works on Paper and Posters. Robert Storr, Dean of the Yale School of Art served as the juror for the Works on Paper. Mr. Storr was the Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art at the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University. In the spring of 2007 he directed the 2007 Venice Biennale, the first American invited to assume that position. Luba Lukova served as the juror for Posters. She is an internationally recognized New York based artist, and is regarded as one of the most distinctive image-makers working today. Ms. Lukova’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Library of Congress, Washington, DC; and Bibliotheque nationale de France.
In Marcelino Stuhmer's recent studio work, he focuses on the nexus point where the function and structure of narrative appropriation and allegory coincide with architectural references from the history of cinema. He is fascinated with the way that history is interpreted through painting, film, television, and news media images, and how analyzing these diverse forms as spatial and temporal representations can alter the narratives, which are ultimately read. Stuhmer has done residencies at Skowhegan, and at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam where he received a two-year research fellowship. His work has been exhibited internationally, including solo exhibitions at Optica Center for Contemporary Art in Montreal, Essl Museum of the Present in Vienna and group exhibitions at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, and Art in General in New York City. Solo projects include Little Triggers in the Playstation at Galerie Fons Welters in Amsterdam, Transmission of Conflict at Galerie Kusseneers in Antwerp, and The Recurring Dream at The Chicago Cultural Center. His most recent installation project Get Ready to Shoot Yourself at the Jade Art Gallery in Bergamo, Italy was organized by Sara Mazzocchi, cinema curator from GAMeC in Bergamo. He has won the Royal Prize for Painting in The Netherlands, a Mondrian International Publication and Exhibition Grant, a CAAP Grant from Chicago, a Joan Mitchell award in conjunction with an artist residency at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, as well as two Faculty Development Awards and a Dean's Faculty Award for Research, both at UW-Milwaukee.
