Join BFA Photo and Video Chair Joseph Maida in conversation with alumni Brandon Isralsky (2013) and Ina Jang (2010) to discuss their trajectories since graduating from SVA including their new book Utopia Centerfolds at Play. This publication pairs Isralsky and Jang with Berlin-based artist, Dean Sameshima, to constellate overlapping visual explorations of censorship, ephemera, and sexuality across gender and social spectrums. A reception and book signing will follow.
