Currently on sabbatical and completing a studio residency in Berlin awarded by the Aargauer Kuratorium, Photography Professor Teresa Hubbard will have her work with collaborator Alexander Birchler exhibited in multiple exhibitions this fall.

From October 6, 2016 – February 4, 2017, The State Museum for Art and Design Nuremberg, Germany will be exploring contemporary frontiers in film and video art. Hubbard and Birchler’s Single Wide will be shown in the month of December. Other artists included in the exhibition are Johan Grimonprez, Julian Rosefeldt, Stan Douglas and others. 

Also in October, the National Gallery in Prague’s Moving Image Department will commence its 6th Chapter: Inner Lives (Of Time), exhibiting the work of Hubbard and Birchler. The sixth chapter of the Moving Image Department concentrates on two parallel and complementary themes – the (inner) architecture of time and the architecture as a vehicle of a (real and imagined) temporality. The works gathered in “The Inner Lives (Of Time)” are reveries and as such, oscillating between the states of dreaming and waking, they express the psychology of both time and architecture, and their influence upon (mainly female) protagonists’ conscious and sub-conscious acts and the actions' flow. From the trance films of the American avant-garde filmmaker and film theorist of the 1940’s and 1950’s, Maya Deren through a cinematographic masterpiece, “House with Pool” (2004) by American-Swiss filmmakers Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler down to the structural poetry of Czech artist Markéta Othová’s photography and the poetic structure of Austrian artist Josef Dabernig’s already iconic Montage-System, the exhibition loops the stories in a search for a cinematic truth and magic. 

The exhibition will be on view October 5, 2016 – January 15, 2017

Mon. October 10, 2016

In September 2016, Hangzhou–an ancient silk and global city–held the second Hangzhou Triennial of Fiber Art. Once again an international dialogue has been created between disciplines, geographies and people.  The Triennial stages this dialogue from a fiber art’s perspective both chronologically and on a grand scale.

In 2013, the first Hangzhou Triennial of Fiber Art attracted over 150 thousand visitors and artists from more than 16 countries. For the first time audiences in China had an opportunity to learn about modern fiber art. At the time of the Second Hangzhou Triennial the G20 Summit will take place. Running concurrently, these two international events will run in parallel.  Two global visions converge together with the creative vitality of the art works on display.
The second Triennial has a distinctive theme, “Weaving & We”, a starting point for curators and artists.
“Weaving” is a special practice. It is embedded in narrative. It tells stories that combine a history of textile labor and production with human experience. It tells these stories with raw materials and advanced technology. Technology changes at a fast pace and so too does the perception of weavers around the world, as individuals, groups and regions.
The exhibition has four sections which represent the research of curators. The artists selected echo Weaving & We from a numbers of different positions and perspectives.

Iva Kinnaird (B.F.A. in Studio Art, 2014) is exhibiting new work this October at Texas Woman’s University galleries. The exhibition, Make Time, will be on view October 8 – November 6, 2016. 

This exhibition brings together Kinnaird and M.F.A. candidate in Studio Art at the Meadows School of the Arts at SMU Shelby David Meier who are exploring the murkiness of time, particularly the manner in which it can be “made” into a physical record of a set of actions. These actions can be purposeful or wasteful, or purposefully wasteful – embodiments of the manner in which we simultaneously work for, against, or in conjunction with time.
