> DESCRIPTION

Claudia Joskowicz’s video work addresses the way technology mediates and redefines concepts like history, truth, and memory, focusing on the lapses in narrative that are formed when texts or events are taken out of their original context. Centering on subtle shifts in meaning or sensibility, Joskowicz directs the viewer’s gaze from the events depicted on the screen to the physical movement of the camera through space, and to movement in a more abstract sense, through an imaginary cinematic space. 

Artist Bio
Joskowicz was born in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, and lives and works in both New York and Bolivia. She received her MFA from New York University in 2000. Solo exhibitions include galleries and museums in New York; Houston; Minneapolis; Salvador, Brazil; and La Paz and Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Recent group exhibitions include the 10th Sharjah Biennial; the 29th São Paulo Biennial; the 10th Havana Biennial; the Slought Foundation, Philadelphia; the 17th Videobrasil Festival, São Paulo; and LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, Asturias, Spain. Among other awards, Joskowicz has received a Guggenheim Fellowship in film/video, a prize during the 17th Videobrasil Festival, and a Fulbright Scholarship. She was recently an artist-in-residence at Sacatar Institute in Bahia, Brazil, and has also been a resident fellow at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Workspace Residency, the Vermont Studio Center, and in the AIM program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. Joskowicz is currently a faculty member in the Steinhardt Art Department at NYU. www.joskowicz.com

About the Graduate Lecture Series
SFAI's Graduate Lecture Series (GLS) allows students to engage with emerging and established artists, curators, critics, and historians working in both local and global art communities. As an investigation of the contemporary issues relevant to students’ full education and experience, GLS gives the entire graduate body a common interdisciplinary foundation. It also plays a crucial role in defining individual praxis and the meanings of “success” within the current and future landscape of contemporary art. In addition, students have the opportunity to meet with some of the guests for individual critiques, small group colloquia, and informal gatherings after the lectures.

All GLS lectures begin at 4:30 pm on Fridays in the Lecture Hall on SFAI’s 800 Chestnut Street campus.
