2015 Pratt Alumni Exhibition

Brooklyn, NY 11205

September 19 – October 16, 2015

Gallery hours: Monday - Friday, 12 - 2 PM

Featuring works by: Felix Aarts, Mario Naves, Beth Shipley, Nicholas Van Zanten, Patricia Zarate and Jim Zinganelli

Curated by Caroline Taylor

The six artists included in this exhibition represent the tradition of abstract painting embedded in the culture of Pratt
Institute. Working in the vein of notable alumni such as Ellsworth Kelly and Pat Steir, the visual vocabulary developed
by each artist confronts the formal elements of color. Spanning four decades of alumni, the exhibition proves an ongoing
dialogue with abstraction.

In conversation with artist Brent Hallard on Visual Discrepancies

Brent: Out of location, a thing found – wonders in ways that form a new thing, in a different location – this is generally how I sense your various projects working.

Patricia: It is my experience of a location or an object in a place that is important to me. I think that I’ve been concerned with taking an experience – a place in time, perception – a feeling or idea and translating or transforming that into a physical object.
