Rawson Projects

Dragana Jurisic. Gordana Self Portrait with a Bear and a Rose, 2017. C-print, 62 x 75cm




For immediate release

Rawson Projects is very excited to announce the second iteration of A Process Series, a sequence of mini solo exhibitions that invites each artist to transform the gallery space in order to present and explore the inspiration behind their most recent work.

A Process Series II invites four female artists to reflect on how politics influences their artistic practice. Each comes from a different background and works in a different medium, but all use their artistic voice to explore our contemporary political reality from their own unique perspective.

From February 2–12, Dragana Jurisic will present an intimate work entitled My Own Unknown, which chronicles the disappearance of her aunt from 1950s Yugoslavia that ruminates on the oppression of women in failing political states.






February 2–March 26, 2017

NYU M.A. in Historical and Sustainable Architecture Fall Open House / Information Session for 2017-18

30 Jan


 Monday, February 6, 6:30 – 8 p.m.

Silver Center 307

100 Washington Square East

 Looking for a future path?  Love old buildings?  Why not make them new again?  NYU’s London-based M.A. Program provides an immersion in adaptive reuse and sustainable building practice. Come learn about the program at our spring open house, featuring presentations about our faculty and curriculum, along with admissions information for 2017-18, and a discussion of career opportunities in the field. Program directors and alumni will be there to discuss the program and answer your questions.

The Master of Arts Degree in Historical and Sustainable Architecture is a nine-month program focusing on the creative reuse of older buildings.  In an era when the demolition of older buildings has been recognized, not just as a loss to the urban fabric but also as a major source of environmental pollution, retaining historic structures and using them for new purposes is increasingly desirable –and profitable.  This program explores innovative ways to reconcile real estate development with historical preservation and environmental protection by recycling existing structures.  The course of study combines academic training and research with experiential learning opportunities, and the program operates within the framework of New York University’s London program.
