COMMAND+ N Group Art Exhibition @ (SCENE) Metrospace
Sep 14 @ 1:00 pm – Oct 28 @ 5:00 pm
COMMAND+ N Group Art Exhibition @ (SCENE) Metrospace | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Please stop into (SCENE) Metrospace to see our latest exhibition traveling to us from Bloomington, Indiana where it was recently on view at I Fell Gallery. COMMAND + N was co-curated by Anna Buckner and Sul-Jee Scully of Command Zine and Bill Bass and Raphael Cornford of Noise Project. This special exhibition brings together the work of nine artists; Roxana Azar, Israel Campos, Zachary Carlisle Davidson, Jonathan McFadden, Rowland Ricketts, Saman Sajasi, Caleb Weintraub, Tyler Wilkinson, and Chad Wys.

Curators Statement

I can’t follow everything going on. You can’t either. I can grab a few strands here and there, focusing my reading and my podcast listening and my conversations. Still, I’m falling woefully short. I know that any sources I access have bias, that I’ve been lied to by dominant narratives across media forms, that my experiences have been misrepresented if represented at all.

So let art speak to us all at once and emotively and with information and through reference and via updated, augmented, and even subverted traditions. For art does
indeed reveal our new narratives and emergent mythologies, forces that selectively continue and negate aspects of their older counterparts. “But which art?” you
might ask, “Where? How? Will there be beer?”

NOISE and COMMAND Zine co-curate the exhibition “COMMAND + N,” a traveling group show of artists whosework is invaluable, transformative and alive, acting upon us just as much as we respond in turn. Working across multiple media these artists reveal untold stories, recontexualize traditions, speak from marginalized identities, and play with the boundaries between digital and tangible.

Bringing together an expertise that spans the contemporary fields of painting, textile, printmaking, photography, comics and digital art, the curators present two exhibitions at I Fell in Bloomington, IN and (SCENE) Metrospace in East Lansing, MI, highlighting selected works as simultaneously discrete narrative objects and cohesively indicative of the story of our time.

Faculty + Student Workshop: On Environment @ 126A Kresge Art Center | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Grab some coffee and cake and join the discussion as we hear from faculty in the Department of Art, Art History, and Design and a special guest in our new series of Faculty and Student Workshops. Each workshop features a different theme, inviting the audience to peek behind the scenes into the research practice of our faculty. The second slice, titled On Environment, looks at how artists, designers, and scholars research the challenges that human society poses to environment.

In this workshop we will hear from Edgar Cardenas, Zach Kaiser Associate Professor of Graphic Design and Experience Architecture, Kelly Salchow MacArthur Associate Professor of Graphic Design, and Lily Woodruff Associate Professor of Art History, and Visual Culture.

Special guest Edgar Cardenas is currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow for the MSU Center for Interdisciplinarity (C4I), he holds a Ph.D. in Sustainability from Arizona State University and conducts research at the art-science interface. He recently completed an Andrew W. Mellon Research Fellowship at the University of Michigan with the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities where he focused on approaches for fostering productive artist-scientist collaborations. As a social scientist, he focuses on social creativity and small group dynamics, exploring which processes and mechanisms support creative collaborations. As an interdisciplinary artist, he investigates the ecological, cultural, and technological subtleties of human/environment relationships. He also is a member of the indigenous artist collective, Radio Healer. As a member of the C4I community, he will be leading research on various ways in which art can inform and enhance interdisciplinary research across campus.
