In conjunction with Peekskill Project V: A Citywide Festival of Contemporary Art, organized by Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, the Field Library Gallery is pleased to bring you two very exciting contemporary artists: Corina Reynolds and Ryan Jennings Clark. This innovative show, Informational Prospects, highlights the artists’ thought-provoking work with installation, electronics, and photography. The show runs from September 29th through December 16th, with a special performance by Corina Reynolds on September 29th at 2:30 pm.
Corina Reynolds is an Interactive Installation/Video artist based in New York City. Exchange forms the central tenets of her studio practice, utilizing concepts from the history of sociology, psychology, and economics. Her immersive installation, performance, and video works invite the viewer to play along and directly experience the hierarchies present in every day society.
Her recent work examines our ritualistic relationship with high-technology and its power to homogenize any foreign space into something immediately accessible and familiar. Within this body of work, economic transactions become metaphors for systematically evaluating interpersonal relationships.
Born in Southern California, the artist received her BFA from San Diego State University and MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. In 2011, she was selected as the Wassaic Project Fall Performance-Artist-in-Residence. She is also a teacher at Interlochen Center for The Arts in Michigan. Her studio is located in Brooklyn, New York. For more information visit: www.corinar.com.
Ryan Jennings Clark (Moving Image/Photography) is a visual artist working in New York City. The conceptual influences for his studio practice originate from an interest in the philosophy of time. This broad concept is explored more selectively, through visual metaphor and atmosphere by utilizing video, photography, electronics and installation. His recent work focuses on the exponential rate of change in technologies and the way this affects our long-held cultural conceptions of individuality and progress. He earned an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art where he received the Toby Devan Lewis Fellowship Award in 2011. For more information visit: www.ryanjenningsclark.com.
