If you’re going to California, be sure to see two shows featuring work from the SVA community. In Los Angeles, alumnus and faculty member Amy Stein (MFA 2006 Photography, Video and Related Media) has her debut solo exhibition, “Domesticated,” at the Paul Kopeikin Gallery. Running February 16 – April 26, Stein is presenting a collection of her photographic works that focus on the interactions between humans and animals. The images from “Domesticated” are slated to be included in a monograph later in 2008.
A little further north in the Golden State, the College’s 2005 exhibition “Design of Dissent” is being re-staged at California Polytechnic State University’s art gallery in San Luis Obispo, through Saturday, February 23. Based on the eponymous book by Acting Chairman Milton Glaser and faculty member Mirko Ilić, “Design of Dissent” is comprised of more than 100 political posters and other graphic artworks that focus on issues ranging from peace, animal rights and gun control to religion, the Iraq war, equality, women’s and gay rights and the corporate world, and hail from countries such as Israel, Russia, Iran, Turkey, Bosnia, Serbia, Germany, South Africa and the United States.
