Emily Schleiner

Eyebeam CV

Outreach and Development

Pinatas, animal costumes, and sight-specific-demonstration-videos  are some tools Emily uses to create humorous and irreverent conceptual art.  With an eye towards metaphor, her interest in patterns and people is expressed with simple imagery, performances, large-scale-community-projects, sculptures, and short-films; a mix of material that is dipped in a pot of politics, technology, and ephemerality.  She does ensemble-style collaborations with artists from multiple disciplines, partaking in the emergent creative process of group art-making, and is currently flocking and herding her way through Brooklyn College's PIMA MFA program and serving as an Outreach and Development Intern at Eyebeam.
