Prior to the opening reception of the writer/artist's new show at 1:1 gallery, (Vanishing Art & Hoodoo Metaphysics, September 23 October 20) a group of students the Art Criticism and Writing M.F.A. program at the School of Visual Arts drove upstate to speak with Peter Lamborn Wilson.
A collaborative husband-and-wife team, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov began to jointly sign their works in 1997 after separate, but concurrent, careers in Russia and the United States.
Rosemarie Beck is preparing for her next show, which will open at Peridot Gallery in March 1959. She’s been working with houses of the zodiac: the Sun, the Moon, Venus, and now Neptune.
Throughout her career, the Norwegian-born painter Hanneline Røgeberg has been moving from naturalistic depictions of bodies engaged in various sensuous activities (licking, hugging, and squeezing one another) to hazy portraits of faceless figures seen in mirror reflections to works based on images of animal hides, which were flayed out across diffuse, abstracted landscapes.

Since I completed the Art Writing MFA program, the majority of my professional writing has consisted of exhibition reviews. I am also a painter, though I write more than I paint, so I tend to identify myself as a writer who paints, rather than a painter who writes.
