- Alumnus Phoebe Washburn (MFA 2002 Fine Arts) was profiled in the November issue of ARTnews. Washburn creates site-specific installations by recontextualizing found objects, such as plywood and plastic crates. The article examines some of Washburn’s recent exhibitions, like her installation at the Whitney Museum of American Art’s 2008 Biennial, as well as some earlier shows, including the solo exhibition she landed with gallerist Zach Feuer soon after graduation from SVA.

- Type A, an artistic duo formed by alumnus Adam Ames (MFA 1997 Photography and Related Media) and Andrew Bordwin, was the subject a feature in the current issue of Art in America. Through their video, photography and performance pieces, Type A explores different aspects of male competition. The two artists recently completed a project for the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s Fairbanks Art & Nature Park, and earlier this fall, their installation Ruled, consisting of a dense formation of suspended plumb bobs, was on view at Goff + Rosenthal gallery in New York.
