Bumblin’ Youngins: A Curated Undergraduate Video Show

Please join us for Bumblin’ Youngins: an evening of videos created by undergraduate students at Rutgers University, Columbia University, The College of New Jersey, New York University and Pratt Institute. Bumblin’ Youngins is hosted and co-organized by Jordan Rathus and Torrance Shipman Gallery, and is co-curated by Rutgers students Charles de Agustin and Ruby Ryan. The event is on April 8 at 8pm at the Torrance Shipman Gallery (219 36th St 4th floor, Brooklyn). There will be live musical performances from AGA ( and Spowder (, with light refreshments served. Nobody under 18 will be admitted.

Inside the essence of the “in-betweens” that live within the “|s” of “film|video|art” emerges Bumblin’ Youngins, an event serving as a social platform for the next generation of rising time-based makers. Students working today to create a new tide of thinking-tied-to-things meet for a salon-of-sorts at Torrance Shipman Gallery, an artist-run space that too evolved from a community of students wanting a place to continue to make and talk. Ruby and Charles enthusiastically accepted my challenge to curate a pop-up video show with the intention of building a broader community of fellow students of time.

Jordan Rathus is an artist and filmmaker who has taught video art at The College of New Jersey and Rutgers University. She is a graduate of New York University (BFA in Film) and Columbia University (MFA in Visual Art: New Genres). She co-founded Torrance Shipman Gallery in 2012. Rathus lives in Brooklyn, NY.
