Two members of the SVA community have noteworthy exhibitions opening at venues well outside the boroughs of NYC. The work of Dinh Q. Lê (MFA 1999 Photography and Related Media) is the subject of a survey exhibition at the Bellevue Arts Museum in Seattle, Washington, through Sunday, December 30. “A Tapestry of Memories: The Art of Dinh Q. Lê” presents more than two dozen of Lê’s woven photographic works and installation pieces, which use a traditional Vietnamese weaving technique to create photographic images that explore personal and cultural identities in conflict, blurring the lines between fact and fiction.
Moving to the Midwest, BFA Photography Department faculty member Elinor Carucci has “Crisis, Pain and Family” at the Art Academy of Cincinnati’s Convergys Gallery. Through Wednesday, November 14, the Cincinnati gallery will be showing Carucci’s photographs in conjunction with its Lightborne Photography Resident Artist Series.
