Please join us Thursday, November 9th from 6:00-9:00pm for our annual Graduate Open Studios event!
Open Studios is an opportunity for the public to meet the next generation of artists at UB. Students in UB’s graduate programs in Art and Media Study invite the public into their studios to engage with their work on more intimate terms. This year’s event is distributed throughout the Center for the Arts on North Campus, and includes a program of film screenings and performances throughout the evening. We’re aiming to create a dynamic event that attracts members of the local arts community as well as the public at large and introduces the incredible work our graduates are making to a broad and diverse audience.

The Affirmative Project brings together over fifty artists to launch an Arts and Activism movement in Buffalo
“Affirmative ethics is not about the avoidance of pain, but rather about transcending the resignation and passivity that ensue from being hurt, lost, and dispossessed … internal disarray, fracture, and pain are also the conditions of possibility for ethical transformation … This [sic] constructs hope as a social project.”
– Rosi Braidotti (more…)

“Seeking Presence” unites University at Buffalo Department of Media Study and School of Architecture and Planning MFA Students Amirreza Azadeh, Galia Binder, Rachel Doktor, Matt Phan, Sara Stabley, and John Wightman in relationship to longing: for objects, animate and inanimate, physical structures, both alive and gone, and places, real and imagined, lost or never visited, that have left their stains of being and becoming on our bodies of work.
Join us from 8:00-9:30 pm on April 28, 2017 at Sugar City, 1239 Niagara Street, for an evening of film installation, animated objects, conceptual space, site-specific media, textile art, and live performance. Plentiful refreshments will be served. RSVP to the Facebook event here.

DMS Grads Sarah Mann and Galia Binder are taking on Infringement Festival this year! They would love for you to come to their living room and see what they’ve been working on this summer.
Where Nobody I Knew Could Ever Come (2016) takes its title from Sylvia Plath’s poetic novel The Bell Jar (1963), as her protagonist Esther wakes up from an overdose in the hospital and realizes she wants to be “…where nobody I knew would ever come.”
Esther leaves the suburbs and enters into a struggle with gender, sexuality, race, class, mental illness, and her potential to create. Our experimental short film takes up this artistic concept in the now—inhabiting one young woman’s vignettes of ambivalent nostalgia for her own suburban coming of age narrative.
For 12 hours on a Tuesday at The Pop In, come have a fruit roll-up and some Sunny D in our temporary living room. Pick up the remote (skip the commercials, if you’d like) and step inside a sense of what it means to have been alive for eighteen years and have never left this place.
Where Nobody I Knew Could Ever Come (2016) runs on loop from 10 am-10 pm, August 2nd, 2016, at The Pop In (218 Grant Street Buffalo, NY 14213).
