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.
