    New Visions 2021

    January 8 – February 20, 2021

    Virtual Closing Celebration and Award Announcement:
    February 17, 2021, 7:00 pm

    The New Visions exhibition series provides students across all disciplines of the School of Art and Design the ability to showcase their talent and skill. The newly revitalized series will continue to offer students an annual juried exhibition opportunity as originated by the Visions Registered Student Organization, the first arts organization at KSU, when the College of the Arts was founded. The ZMA is excited to continue expanding this longstanding tradition by featuring a prominent artist, critic, or curator to serve as both juror and visiting lecturer. These additional associations serve each respective discipline with visibility, exposing students to diverse points-of-view, practices, and techniques. Moreover, this approach acknowledges the internal and external associations of advanced learning through relevant engagements and dialogues among leading artists, curators, and critics.

    The New Visions exhibition provides viewers with a significant opportunity to witness a variety of artistic methodologies.

    Featured artists: Tatiana Bell, Kaitlyn Blade, Audra Chang, Brittany Cox, Graciella Elaine, Jane Erwin, Katie Geisler, Izabella Herrera, Marjorie Hsu, Joe Huynh, Nicole Kadom, Sierra Kazin, Demi Kiker, Matthew Lamneck, Deona Lizette, Charity McLeod, Michael Miele, Marc Mills, Wendy Mitchell, Virginia Moore, Chandler Morris, Julie Mullenix, Tracy Okai, Nikki Raitz, Nikita Leigh Raper, Shelly Reece, Tiffany Sanchez, Jocelyn Scherer, Tre Scott, Sydney Szabo, Camden Thomas, Barbara Travis, Margo Trousdale, Bailey Volk, Kristina Walker, Livie Wang, and Frances Ziemian

    • Photo of Anthony Goicolea, the New Visions 2021 Juror and Guest LecturerThe juror and guest lecturer for New Visions 2021 will be Anthony Goicolea. Born in 1971 in Atlanta, Georgia, Anthony Goicolea is a first-generation Cuban American artist now living and working in Brooklyn, New York. His extended family immigrated to the United States in 1961, fleeing Cuba soon after Castro came to power—a fact that underpins many of the artist’s works. Employing a variety of media, Goicolea explores themes ranging from personal history and identity, to cultural tradition and heritage, to alienation and displacement. His diverse oeuvre encompasses digitally manipulated self-portraits, landscapes, and narrative tableaux executed in a variety of media, including black-and-white and color photography, sculpture and video installations, and multi-layered drawings on Mylar. Best known for his powerful, and often unsettling, staged photographic and video works, Goicolea made his artistic debut in the late 1990s with a series of provocative multiple self-portrait images.

      The artist has exhibited widely in group and solo exhibitions throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia—notably at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, Illinois; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the International Center of Photography, New York; Postmasters Gallery, New York; Haunch of Venison Gallery, London, United Kingdom; Galerie Aurel Scheibler, Berlin, Germany; the Groninger Museum, the Netherlands; and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain. Alter Ego: A Decade of Work by Anthony Goicolea is the first major traveling museum exhibition devoted solely to his work. Goicolea’s art is held in many public collections, including those of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York; as well as the Yale University Art Collection, New Haven, Connecticut; the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh; and Telfair Museums, Savannah, Georgia. To date, Goicolea’s work has been the subject of four books. It has been featured in ARTnews, Art in America, Art Forum, the New Yorker, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Sun-Times, and the Chicago Tribune, among many others. The artist’s grants and awards include a Cintas Fellowship (2006) and the BMW Photo Paris Award (2005) and the Joan Mitchell Fellowship Foundation. Goicolea holds a B.A. in art history, with a minor in romance languages, and a B.F.A. in drawing and painting—both earned at the University of Georgia, Athens, in 1992 and 1994, respectively. He received an M.F.A. in sculpture and photography, from Pratt Institute of Art, New York, in 1997.
