 The second of 3 Shows Featuring Thesis Projects from the Class of 2010 Opens February 18th

An exhibition featuring approximately 50 works in photography, digital imaging, and multimedia by 10 graduating seniors from the class of 2010 in the Department of Photography & Imaging at the Kanbar Institute of Film & Television will open February 18.  It will remain on view at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts through March 13, 2010.           

Entitled SHOW TWO, the show is the second in a series of four exhibitions that will eventually showcase the work of the entire graduating class in a BFA exhibition. It is installed in the Gulf + Western Gallery (rear lobby) and the 8th Floor Gallery at 721 Broadway (at Waverly Place). Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Admission is free. Photo identification is required for access to the building. For further information, call 212.998.1930 or visit www.photo.tisch.nyu.edu.

In this exhibition: Alex Brown explores perceptions of the basic elements of graphic art; Ben Franke examines the range of human motion in 3D and how urban spaces are transformed by the movement discipline called Parkour; Lili Holzer-Glier delves into the industry, architecture, recreational activities, and people of rural upstate New York to create a complex portrait of the region; Thalia Ortiz depicts an interpretation of the life of contemporary women who have made news around the world; Casey Oto looks into how East Asian Americans visualize their individuality within a transient studio space; Meredith Rom creates modern portraits inspired by 1930’s Hollywood glamour; Suzy Shaheen studies how photographs depict “Southerness” locally and globally; Erin Wahed’s large format color photographs result from intense exploration and experimentation wherein energy finds form and tableaux emerge to beautifully intersect the abstract and the familiar; Sterling Yee combines her parents’ distant observations with a critical perspective of herself; Jackee Zaccor’s video project is a personal narrative of life as an “army brat” in constant transition, exploring transience, change, stability, and family.

The Department of Photography and Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts is a four-year B.F.A. program centered on the making and understanding of images. Students explore photo-based imagery as personal and cultural expression. Situated within New York University, the program offers students both the intensive focus of an arts curriculum and a serious and broad grounding in the liberal arts.
