An exhibition featuring approximately 70 works-comprising photography, multimedia, installation and digital media-by eleven graduating seniors from the class of 2005 in the Department of Photography and Imaging at the Kanbar Institute of Film will open February 17. It will remain on view at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts through March 12, 2005.
Entitled Senior Thesis Exhibition Two, the show is the second in a series of four exhibitions that will eventually feature the work of all 31 seniors. It is installed in the Gulf+Western Gallery (main floor) and the Photo Center Gallery (8th floor) at 721 Broadway. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Admission is free but photo identification is required to enter the building. For further information, call 212.992.1930 or visit www.photo.tisch.nyu.edu.
The exhibition features: Eric Buth’s dynamic visual production system reminiscent of comics; Bryan Denton’s photographs documenting the humanitarian crisis in Eastern Chad where Sudanese refugees have been fleeing increasing ethnic violence in Darfur, Sudan; Lauren Fabrizio’s exploration of identity and memories formed through relationships in her series of surrealistic collages using double exposure; Alex Feld’s series of silver gelatin prints that seem to teeter between the tranquil beauty and dark unsettling nature of the world; Alex Gibbons’s computer-modeled images in a series examining the systems of aesthetics that surround roadside buildings; Ariel Goldberg’s domestic portraits of people watching television; Michael M. Koehler’s series of photographs that focus on his home town, Philadelphia; Naomi Leibowitz’s exploration of the fragmented and inevitably inaccurate nature of memory and experience; Ashley Macknica’s collection of color snapshots linked by formal components; Dan Stein’s images taken from his experiences using photography as an emotional release; and Cody Trepte’s exploration of memory through antiquated methods of storage as man’s relationship to technology grows closer together.
