Aperture Exhibition Opening Reception



Aperture Foundation and the School of Visual Arts, an art school in New York City whose mission is to educate students who aspire to become professional artists, have partnered to present a group exhibition of alumni of SVA's BFA photography department whose work explores issues of role playing and identity in the twenty-first century. In Identity Identities (i / i), eleven promising young artists explore the various permutations of identity in today's rapidly changing world through the fluid and evolving medium of photography, which is perhaps best suited to tackle this subject. Themes include how identity manifests itself through group identification, the places we live, and the influence of mass media and advertising.

Identity Identities (i / i) is curated by Stephen Frailey, chair of SVA's photography department, and includes an essay by Seth Greenwald. Artists include: Allison Yeskel, Joseph Sbarro, Jennifer Lee, Hugo Fernandez, Jess Shaffer, Nicola Kast, Victoria Hely-Hutchinson, Jing Quek, Kelly Clark, Anula Maiberg, Susanne Persson
