| Alison Elizabeth Taylor's poster hails a fictitious collaboration between herself and influential East Village artist David Wojnarowicz.|
Last month, School of the Arts M.F.A. student Francesca DiMattio opened "Past Perfect" at the Kantor Gallery at 259 10th Ave. "Past Perfect" is a poster exhibition by nine female M.F.A. students in the window space of the Kantor Gallery. Visual Arts students Julieta Aranda, Sara Greenberger, Anya Keilar, Tamar Halpern, Alison Elizabeth Taylor, Patricia Treib, Eileen Quinlan, Fay Ray and Paula Wilson produced a series of posters announcing fictitious exhibitions in art spaces or magazines that no longer exist. Each artist placed her work within her ideal viewing space, allowing for collaborations and exhibitions that could happen in other times. "Past Perfect" was a cooperative effort among the artists from its conception to installation, according to DiMasttio, a recipient of the Neils Kantor Curatorial Fellowship Award.
The show runs through Jan. 28.
