Exhibition: "Fields of Vision: Work by SUNY New Paltz Art Faculty

In our post-modern society, the art world is both more connected and more fragmented than ever before. New York City, once the capital of that world, is now just one of a network of regional centers spanning the globe. And close-up, contemporary practices appear to be a mash-up of disparate concepts, political agendas, media, and styles. Fields of Vision explores how art and design being made by full-time Department of Art faculty at the State University of New York at New Paltz fits into this local/global picture.
