Reconstruction Zone Ahead

January 13, 2006

This week a new exhibition is opening in the Westside Gallery: “Reconstructing Photography,” a collection of works that deconstruct, reconstruct and question the role of photography in today’s art world. The pieces in the exhibition were selected from a variety of disciplines — the artists included are BFA Photography Department students Anita Eberhard (whose photos are literally stitched together with thread) and Koji Kakubari (who contributes hanging assemblages of fragmented images of the human body), MFA Computer Art Department student Ilias Koen (creator of the Camera Obscura Rectangular Pyramid Helmet), BFA Graphic Design Department student Sho Ma (whose work consists of painted photographic collages) and MFA Fine Arts Department student Ricky Sears (who will have ephemeral, decomposing photo constructions on display).

“Reconstructing Photography” is on view in the Westside Gallery, 141 West 21st Street, January 14 – February 11; Reception: Wednesday, January 18, 5 – 7pm.
