An exhibition of approximately 40 works created by alumni of the Department of Photography & Imaging in the Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts will open October 21 and run through November 20, 2010. The show—comprising a wide range of perspectives and media, including but not limited to traditional black-and-white and color photographs, net art, and multi-media installations—reflects the changes that the artists have experienced as their respective careers have evolved and how these changes are reflected themselves in the Department of Photography & Imaging.
Entitled Evolution, the exhibition is the first to showcase alumni work and is the inaugural show in the Department’s newly renovated space. It is on view in the Department of Photography & Imaging Gallery (8th floor), located at 721 Broadway; hours are from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. It is open to the public and admission is free. A photo ID is required to enter the building. For further information, call 212.998.1930, or visit www.photo.tisch.nyu.edu.
