Mentors 2019

An exhibition of works by students in the BFA Photography & Video Department at the School of Visual Arts, inspired by their working relationships with leading members of the New York City arts community.

Drawn from the ranks of the city’s best-known photographers, curators, art directors, publishers, art dealers, critics and writers, mentors are matched with students based on their field of expertise and the student’s area of concentration. The 2018 – 2019 mentors include assistant curator at the International Center of Photography, Marina Chao; artist and gallerist Janice Guy; artist Jack Pierson; photographer and senior photo editor at Vice magazine, Elizabeth Renstrom; artist, writer and associate curator at The Studio Museum in Harlem, Legacy Russell; and The New York Times Magazine director of photography, Kathy Ryan.

The Mentors program at SVA is designed to cultivate relationships between established and emerging artists and to introduce new talent to the broader community. Established in 1992, this program pairs select fourth-year students with key figures in the New York arts community, giving them objective and professional insight into their work during a culminating point in their education.

On view: March 12 - 26, 2019
Gallery hours: Monday - Saturday, 10am-6pm

Opening reception: Thursday, March 14, 6-8pm
