In this exhibition: David Allen reshapes the family portrait through a collision of painting and photography and Stephanie Berland captures members of an elite group of Americans, men who risked their lives for their country. Laura Bluher's installation consists of portraits of young women and the objects they have collected while Anamaria Crespo explores the portrait as a fragment. Mark Dalessandro explores modern life via youth growing up just outside of New York City while Casey Drake's American landscapes investigate the phenomenon of the suburban and the delicate balance between the domestic and the wild. Alexander Govenar's street portraits examine the dual performance between subject and photographer and Logan Howard delves into the intersection of her mother's past and the artist's own present experiences. Kyehyung Jennette Lim portrays the life of a hardworking Korean immigrant spending time at home with his family and Sophie Samul's photographs signal a loss of her own feelings of self-criticism but hint at idealization. Evan Simon creates visual postcards from an urban environment, sending greetings from Dead Horse Bay and Kathryn Whitney documents the Park School of Baltimore's Arctic Club trip to Churchill, Manitoba. Noor Youness is represented by a series of color photographs taken over the past four years.
The Department of Photography and Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts is a four-year B.F.A. program centered on the making and understanding of images. Students explore photo-based imagery as personal and cultural expression. Situated within New York University, the program offers students both the intensive focus of an arts curriculum and a serious and broad grounding in the liberal arts.
