– Thurman, on right, with Moravec (photo by Lucien Marc Smith)
At least one senior already has a solid paragraph for the alumni notes: yesterday, the Times‘s “The Moment” blog briefly profiled soon-to-be-graduate Kyle Thurman. Thurman and recent New School grad Matthew Moravec are five days into their first art show, running until March 29th at the Art Production Fund (229 West Houston Street). Their show’s name? “The New Deal.” Somewhere, Alan Brinkley approves.
Moravec and Thurman (whose girlfriend, Mirabelle Marden, as in daughter of Brice, was one of the co-founders of the influential Rivington Arms gallery) are not the only “young’uns” making up the show: the eleven artists’ ages range from 19 to 26. As for the next step, Moravec told Interview magazine, “We’re young. We’re all in the same situation: finished school, finishing school. Trying to figure it all out.” At least they’ve got something to fall back on.
