In addition to heading up graduate programs at SVA, Marshall Arisman and Charles Traub are representing the College on both sides of the Atlantic this month. Here in New York City, Arisman, who chairs the MFA Illustration as Visual Essay Department, is responsible for one half of “Transference,” a two-artist exhibition at 632 On Hudson, the historic event space located at 632 Hudson Street. His large-scale works will be on view for one night only, Friday, March 13, starting at 7.30pm.
Moving to Europe, photographs by Traub, chair of the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department, are included in “Big City: Street Photography from New York,” which is showing at the Wein Museum in Vienna. Seventeen works from Traub’s Street Portraits series are part of this survey of NYC street photography from 1940 – 1980. “Big City” will be on view at the Wein Museum March 12 – May 24.
