A note from our curator, Clarity:
When I was in art school, I was warned never to use the word “goddess” in an artist statement. As odd as this sounds now, it represented the prevailing attitude in the art world at the time. The 1970s feminist art movement, which explored goddess imagery as an alternative to patriarchal religious symbolism, was followed by a long period in which such work was seen as taboo and slightly embarrassing. I’m happy to say this is now changing, as contemporary artists assert the importance of spirituality in their work (and the feminist art movement is finally getting its due). The idea for Magic Praxis formed from curiosity; I wanted to see what a 2015 group show about the divine feminine would look like. I invited artists whose work invokes a sublime feminine power through ideas of ritual, sacred geometry, gender fluidity, craft, sexuality and mythology.

Hope to see you!
Clarity + Zach + Lauren

Coming up: Showboat will continue to go steady. Our last summer exhibition will be organized byJosh C Nusbaum, come by on Saturday, August 1st from 6-8PM for the opening of his show,Wizards & Sorceresses.

Brooklyn College MFA Closing Reception

May 12, 2015

Brooklyn College MFA thesis exhibition 2015

Chain Reaction

Signal Gallery

May 8th -17th 2015

Closing Reception:

Saturday, May​ 16th, 6-9pm.

A “chain reaction” is a series of reactions in which one product of a reacting set is a reactant in the following set. Self-amplified, each event contributes to the succeeding event. Very naturally, after spending two academic years working side by side, critiquing and inspiring each other, a subliminal dialogue takes place between artists working in the same program. This exhibition is the culmination of those two rigorous years of exploration in various media – painting, sculpture, photography, digital media, installation, and performance. Through the development of their own distinct studio practices, these artists explore the complex themes of utility, labor, memory, fantasy and entropy.The show is curated by Naomi Lev and David Willis. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog which includes writings from the curators, Jennifer McCoy, and the participating artists.


MFA Participants: Jeremy Wiles-Young, Kat Ryals, Diana Restrepo, Joelle Provost, Melani Pavlidou, Paul Neenan, James Mulvaney, Kat Monaghan, Seung Jong Lee, Raphael Griswold, and Georgi Georgiev.

Naomi Lev is a curator and critic who investigate politically-infused contemporary art. She is a contributing editor for Creative Time Reports, and a contributing writer for She also writes for Art in America, BOMB Magazine, and more. As a curator she specializes in collaborative art events that connect artists, curators, and scholars, and has curated performances and panels with artists such as Jonathan Meese and Vito Acconci. Recent curated shows in NY include “in, side – throughout” and “Preliminary Study: RSI – T.”

David Willis is a writer, curator, and photographer based in New York City. His writing has been published in the The Brooklyn Rail,, and He is an associate editor at the art criticism web journal TheForgetory.organd is also a founding member of 184 Project Space, a collaborative exhibition platform for emerging artists and curators.
