Morten AndenĂ¦s (BFA 2002 Photography) opened his second exhibition at Galleri Riis in Oslo, Norway, on March 14. â€śEnclosed circuitâ€ť consists of 35 new photographic works from his ongoing project, Regarding the Middle Class, whichÂ addresses the ways in which individuals balance their responsibility to engage in civil society with their own desires and impulses, which are not always civil. In the exhibition, AndenĂ¦s focuses on photographing difficult subjects, like a woman participating in a clinical trial about pain at Norwayâ€™s National Institute of Occupational Health or handguns against a green screen. Â â€śEnclosed circuitâ€ťÂ is on viewÂ though April 28.
Tribeca gallery and French-style salon Hotel Particulier celebrated its grand opening last January with â€śDynasty,â€ť an exhibition including work by BFA Fine Arts faculty members Liz Magic Laser and Peter HristoffÂ andÂ alumnus Ali Banisadr (BFA 2005 Illustration). â€śDynastyâ€ť explores cross-generational family dynamics through fictitious families, in which the curators chose various artists to act as their â€śchildren.â€ť Laser partnered with artist Becca Albee to create one collaborative work, while Banisadr invited artists who inspire him (including Hristoff) to participate. “Dynasty” is on view at Hotel Particulier, 6 Grand Street, through April 20.
