The Arts section of the Friday, August 14, edition of The New York Times included a feature titled “New York Photographs” that rounded up several exhibitions of work focused on New York City’s residents and environs. Two of the shows—“Sexy and the City” and “Glitz & Grime: Photographs of Times Square”—include contributions from members of the SVA community.
Yossi Milo Gallery, 525 West 25th Street, is presenting “Sexy and the City,” a group exhibition that looks at both private and public moments of sexual expression in the city. Among the artists whose images appear in the show are Masters Series laureate Duane Michaels, alumnus Frank Paulin (E 1973) and MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department Chair Charles H. Traub, who got a special mention in the Times piece for his photo, The Met, New York.
In “Glitz & Grime: Photographs of Times Square,” which is showing at Yancey Richardson Gallery, 535 West 22nd Street, alumnus Jeff Liao (MFA 2005 Photography, Video and Related Media) has part of his award-winning In the Shadow of the No. 7 Line project included; and photographer Andrew Moore (faculty, MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department) is represented by Target, a large-format photo that is part of his Times Square 1995–2005 series. Both “Sexy and the City” and “Glitz & Grime: Photographs of Times Square” are on view through Friday, August 28.
