Works by 12 Graduating Seniors in The Department of Photography and Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts to Go on View

February 1, 2011

An exhibition featuring approximately 50 works in photography, digital imaging, and multimedia by 12 graduating seniors from the class of 2011 in the Department of Photography & Imaging at the Kanbar Institute of Film & Television will open February 24. It will remain on view at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts through March 19, 2011.

Entitled, SHOW TWO, the exhibition is the second in a series of four that will eventually showcase the work of the entire graduating class. It is installed in the Gulf + Western Gallery (1st floor 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 more information, visit www.photo.tisch.nyu.edu or call 212.998.1930.

In this exhibition: Anita Boyke presents images depicting memories burdened by adult associations; Alinane Chikaonda documents her relationship between the culture of urban city life and traditional village life in Malawi, which she explores through friends, family, and spaces; Janice Gilman explores the interplay between aspects of contemporary functionality and the retrospective implications of B&W images created with a plastic lens; Sage Grazer represents the anxiety of forgetting through photographs to serve as the physical evidence of thought and the transformation from thought to something tangible; Sam Heesen presents work that declares “the world is up to you”; Ryan Mellinger photographs found situations and objects that challenge conventional perceptions of calculated boundary and space in an exploration of what is expected and possible within and around these boundaries; Samantha Schwendeman photographs objects and scenes which reference the life-affirming effect caused by witnessing the interplay of life and death in back-road Texas. Also included in the exhibition are Peter Curtis, Antonio Delgado, Olivia Jade Horner, Cameron Justice, and Callie Klebanoff.

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.
