8:00 PM - 10:30 PM Baruch College Hosts Artist Jillian McDonald Lecture and Closing Reception
Jillian McDonald: Something Wicked (This Way Comes) Lecture and Closing Reception


NEW YORK, NY- April 28, 2014 – The New Media Artspace at Baruch College invites you to a lecture by new media artist Jillian McDonald on Monday, May 5 at 8pm in the Baruch Performing Arts Cetner. A reception will follow the lecture. This evening is organized in conjunction with the closing of McDonald’s solo exhibition at the New Media Artspace, Something Wicked (This Way Comes), curated by Katherine Behar, Assistant Professor of New Media Arts at Baruch College.

 

Jillian McDonald is a Canadian artist who lives in New York where she is an Associate Professor of Art at Pace University. In the four new works on view in the exhibition, McDonald extends her longstanding examination of archetypal motifs and themes from horror films and cautionary tales.  While her work draws inspiration from the horror genre and its surrounding fan culture, this latest series, shot on location in Scotland, notably abandons the character-driven formula that marks the genre’s plot progression.  Instead each video progresses, compellingly, by focusing solely on landscapes devoid of human life. Although deserted, these lush spaces roll with subtle continuous motion. Movements of birds, fog and breeze permeate magnificent scenery, taking on eerie significance, while relentless edits build suspense in a plot-less progression without end.

In these videos the paranormal achieves literal meaning.  The paranormal is “para” – which is to say it is the surroundings, in the landscape itself.  Placing the otherworldly in the world, McDonald portrays it as neither ghoulish nor mundane, but rather sublime.  Her breathtaking scenery appears at once bewitching and bewitched.

McDonald’s shows and projects include the Esker Foundation in Calgary; Moti Hasson Gallery, Jack the Pelican Presents, and vertexList in New York; The San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery; Hallwalls in Buffalo; La Sala Narañja in Valencia, Spain. Her work has been included in group exhibitions and festivals at The Chelsea Museum and The Whitney Museum's Artport in New York, The Edith Russ Haus for Media Art in Germany, The International Biennial of Contemporary Art in Venezuela, The Sundance Film Festival in Utah, and the Centre d’Art Contemporain de Basse-Normandie in France.

This event is free and open to the public.
