Congratulations to 2017 MFA Photo, Video and Related Media alum Adam Cable on his curatorial effort Constellations taking place at SVA's Chelsea Gallery. The exhibition will be on view through August 11th. “Constellations” comes from the sociological theory of intersectionality, asserting that all elements of identity—most notably gender, sexuality, race and class—are interwoven. Each marker cannot be fully understood without acknowledging the contextualizing factors surrounding it. The students in this exhibition utilize the multiplicities within identity to create personal yet socially engaged work. Connecting many points across space, these artists explore the complexity and composite nature of human experience.
Alongside many talented artists from SVA's vast student body is the recent MFA Photo/ Video graduate Dodo Xinyu Zhang, whose thesis project Idle Character explores the complicated relationship between sexuality, identity and pornography through the medium of Japanese pornographic posters and self portraiture. Her work gets a beautiful write up in hyperallergic. A fitting start to her career as an emerging artist to keep an eye on.
