  • Looking at the recent works of Sebastian Stumpf one finds an interplay between performance and the recording of performance, between the execution of a physical act and the documentation of it by means of a camera. [He] operates in two distinct realms: in the empty spaces of contemporary art institutions and in urban settings with their preexisting orders. […] An inconspicuous architectural detail suddenly becomes the catalyst for a physical exploit…. The art gallery becomes a space for action.

Graduate Fine Arts Lecture: Gracie DeVito

Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.
