The Visual Arts Gallery has four new shows opening at the end of October. Three of the exhibitions come from the BFA Photography Department: “Places of My Youth,” an exhibition of photography by alumnus Katie Kingma (BFA 2005 Photography) exploring the relationship between memory, events and place, curated by faculty member Jerry Vezzuso; “New Work,” a selection of photographs by alumnus Max Dworkin (BFA 2006 Photography), including environmental portraits and figures in the landscape caught or suspended in a state of action, also curated by Vezzuso; and “Isthmus,” an exhibition featuring work by nine emerging photographers who graduated from the BFA Photography Department and formed their own critique group as a way to bridge their studies and a life-long art practice, curated by alumnus and faculty member Eric Weeks (BFA 1987 Photography).
In addition, the BFA Interior Design Department is presenting “Vertical Project,” an exhibition designed by students and curated by Department Chair Jane Smith. The display features the results of an annual exercise in which students from different classes work in teams, allowing those with various levels of experience to inform each other throughout the project. All four shows are on view at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, October 26 – November 17, with a reception taking place on Tuesday, October 30, 6 – 8pm.
