The digital exhibition titled “SNOW” by LMCC Arts Center 2021 artist-in-residence Snow Yunxue Fu is now on view by ZAZ corner at Times Square!

The exhibition features video artwork “Avalanche” and “Submerged”, 3D moving image artworks which are two of the newly finished projects of New Media Artist Snow Yunxue Fu.

Fu creates scenes of experimental abstraction that translate the concept of liminality into the digital experience. The word liminal is often used to discuss the sublime within digital space and the VR experience, conjuring up notions of time, space, and perception, and echoing the experience of the sublime in nature.

The digital exhibition is on view until August 1!

AUNTS is Back, LMCC Alumni in New York Times

On June 6, AUNTS emerged from the pandemic with a new set of organizers and Aunts Goes Public!

LMCC alumni Laurie Berg, a longtime AUNTS organizer decided it was time to open up AUNTS to a new generation of organizers. There are now six along with Berg: Shana Crawford, Kadie Henderson, Jordan D. Lloyd, another alumni Larissa Velez-Jackson, and Jessie Young.

"AUNTS is about having dance happen. The dance you’ve already seen, that pops into your head, that is known and expected and unknown and unexpected. Dance that seeps into the cracks of street lights, subway commotion, magazine myth, drunk nights at the bar, the family album, and the couch where you lay and softly glance at the afternoon light coming in through the window. AUNTS is about being gracious in this world."
