    February 2012 Educators Showcase: Thomas Albrecht

    Thomas Albrecht’s projects include wall drawings that record passages of time through accumulations of mark; paintings that negotiate the remnants of human agency without picturing actual figures; and performances on city sidewalks that explore ritual and language in public spaces. His most recent work has focused on durational performances where the passage of time and physical demands on the body form the content of the projects. He has exhibited throughout the United States and in Europe. In addition, he has initiated unscheduled interventions on sidewalks in major urban centers in the United States; his interactions with local police have been few. He is an assistant professor of art at the State University of New York at New Paltz, where he serves as coordinator for first-year studies. He has lectured on topics ranging from teaching pedagogy, ritual and performance, and contemporary visual practices in venues such as the School of Visual Arts, FATE, the College Art Association, and the International Society for Religion, Literature and Culture. He received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, a Master of Arts in Religion at Yale, and his MFA from the University of Washington in Seattle.

    Oh the irony! Here we have a post on preventing SPAM and what do you find in the comments, but tons and tons of SPAM. I guess I will throw my link in here for good measure ;-)
