False Dichotomy June 24th-26th by Susan Allbert

I am very excited to be part of this show curated by the wonderful Libby Clarke. I'll be showing a new series of prints, this time on t-shirts and all part of a collaboration with the amazing Japanese master indigo dyers Buaisou Brooklyn. We've been experimenting with laser cutting and Katagami, mixing traditional methods of dyeing and printing with new technologies

The exhibition centers on fine art printmaking that intersects with, depends upon, and even conquers high technology. Invited artists use data, sensors, alternate processes, wearables, performance, and other technologies to produce multiples, texts, and other sorts of editions.

Hope some of you can swing by!

Stop Motion Animation by Susan Allbert

8th March 2014
My animated short film "Lost" will be screened at  "Hands On: The Illusion of Movement".

New York City gallery Pocket Utopia is pleased to present an evening of animated short films by 13 contemporary artists from around the world curated by Bara Jichova.

Featuring works by: Susan Allbert, Martha Colburn, Erin Dunn, Dustin Grella, Amy Jenkins, Kirsten Lepore, Paulius Nosokas, Allison Schulnik, Jeffrey Scher, Pavel Švec, Matěj Smetana, Richard Tuohy and Theodore Ushev

All of these shorts celebrate both traditional animation and hands-on filmmaking. The techniques vary, ranging from hand-drawn, claymation, stop motion and cutout animation to cel animation process and rotoscoping technique.
Rather than having a traditional narrative structure, these films challenge audiences to find broader and more creative interpretations.
