The 2019 recipients of the annual Bronx Museum AIM Fellowship have been announced and amongst the list are three SVA MFA Photo/Video Alumni: Rehan Miskci ('14), Daqi Fang ('17), and William Miller ('17).

Our department is so proud of our distinguished alumni for their hard work and recognition.

Rehan Miskci and Daqi Fang recently paid a visit to our 2019 group of incoming MFA Photo/Video students during orientation week, lecturing on an array of subjects including the creative processes and contexts behind their respective works, making a living as a working artist, and life as an artist post-graduate studies.

Miskci's background in architectural studies informs her interesting survey of the unity between stuctural forms and imagery and how they collide in the context of photographic spaces and compositions. Fang's digitally manipulated landscapes give insight to a multimedia artist's journey through life and the world. Miller's more experimental approach to both digital and analog processes of photography offer to the viewer an alternate way of viewing the capabilites of the photographic medium, free from more traditional and regimented ways of producing imagery.

The NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship Program makes grants of $7,000 to artists working in 15 disciplines, awarding five per year on a triennial basis. The program is highly competitive, and this year’s recipients and finalists were selected by discipline-specific peer panels from an applicant pool of 2,542. Since it was launched in 1985, the program has awarded over $31 million to more than 5,000 artists. This year, thanks to the generous support of photography nonprofit Joy of Giving Something, NYFA was able to award an additional five Fellowships in Photography, which has the largest application pool of any Fellowship category.
