By Yesterday: A solo exhibition featuring a collaged drawing installation, by Queens, NY artist Beth Livensperger
Opening Reception: Friday, March 12th 6-10pm
Beth Livensperger’s large-scale collages depict women negotiating the challenges and small humors of white-collar jobs. In By Yesterday, she focuses on the breakneck pace of labor that is too often our contemporary norm. Being busy, taking on too much, working against deadlines, are all hallmarks of the 24/7 hyper-efficient culture we have collectively created. The loosely connected scenes which fill PeepSpace’s gallery depict the process of working overtime on a project. Surrounded by the detritus of a day’s labors – from coffee cups to Solo cups – two women arrange papers on the floor. The solution, the perfect plan, has to be here. On the opposite wall, someone sits alone in her office cubicle, head in hand. A gaggle of colleagues compare notes nearby. These images depict both the anxiety of working under pressure, but also the communal energy of pushing towards a desired outcome. The installation also echoes physical features of the gallery itself. The visual rhymes thus established link the artist’s invention to the viewer’s surroundings.
Originally from the Midwest, Beth Livensperger holds a B.F.A. from The Cooper Union, and an M.F.A. in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University. She has exhibited at venues in NYC, widely throughout the U.S., and in Seoul, Korea. Her solo projects have been hosted by The Abrons Art Center and Chashama, and she has participated in group exhibitions at the American Academy of Arts and Letters, RISD Memorial Hall Gallery, The Painting Center, and Essex Flowers, among many others. Her work has been reviewed in Politico, Two Coats of Paint blog, and WNYC’s Culture Datebook. Residency and grant support has been received by the Lower East Side Printshop, Sam and Adele Golden Foundation, Virginia Center for Creative Arts, Vermont Studio Center, Chashama, The Abrons Art Center, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, among others. The artist gratefully acknowledges support from the Lower East Side Printshop on this project.
The Family Of, curated by Jeff Dietz
January 15th – February 21st, 2021
Family photographs are, for many, one of our first introductions to photography. They are ubiquitous, and at the same time precious. There is a long history in photography of artists documenting their loved ones as an act of art and love.
The definition and visual representation of American families is constantly changing. It has been a patchwork that is hard to categorize and define. The nuclear family has never fully represented the nation, nor should it be the sole beacon of aspiration. Individual family stories can help to unify and breed empathy. The challenge of being bound in name can lead to strong growth and bonding. And for some, family can be lost in blood and found in community.
Jeff Dietzis a photographer based in Tarrytown, New York. He is a graduate of the Hartford Art School and currently works as a studio manager and in-house photographer and videographer for Mamiya America Corporation. His personal practice focuses primarily on photographic artist books and zines.
The Family Of includes the work of: Jonathan Bagby, Trent Bozeman, Frances Bukovsky, J. Carrier, Nelson Chan, Jeremiah Dine, Sydney Ellison, Christian Gallo, Taylor Galloway, Juan Giraldo, Joe Johnson, Sydney Krantz, Anthoula Lelekidis, Joe Librandi-Cowan, Karl Frederick Mattson, Elizabeth McGrady, Vann Powell, Zachary P. Stephens, Christopher Stoltz, Erika Nina Suarez, Megan Tepper, Andy Vernon-Jones, Kevin Williamson, Fernando Zelaya
Flat File 2020
November 13 – December 23, 2020
Flat File 2020 is an exhibition featuring over 50 artists’ small, two-dimensional works of art.
PeepSpace presents: Flat File 2020, an exhibition of works from the inaugural, annual Flat File Program. The project space has curated a selection of small works from emerging and established artists working in two-dimensional mediums.
The Flat File 2020 exhibition features work by each of the over fifty selected artists and runs from November 13 through December 23, 2020. The works of art will continue to be stored in the project space’s flat file and be available for viewing, in tandem with other scheduled programming, through September 2021.
The timing of this year’s PeepSpace open call allowed artists the opportunity to present recent art work, much of which was created during the time of pandemic and social distancing. Although the internet provides connections for socializing and image sharing, it is evident that artists have a need for tactile communication as well, and a visceral drive to make objects that exist in the physical world. PeepSpace presents a sampling of this impulse, with a glimpse into what artists are creating during this time of isolation.
PeepSpace is a project space for emerging and established artists to share their practice and vision with a wider audience. Founded in 2020 by Monica Carrier & Jane Kang Lawrence.
