PDN Photo of the Day

New York’s Photo Coaches

The BFA Photography and Video program at the School of Visual Arts will open Mentors on Tuesday, March 12. The exhibition features work by the department’s students inspired by their working relationships with leading members of the New York 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.

Established in 1992, the Mentors program at SVA is designed to cultivate relationships between established and emerging artists and to introduce new talent to the broader community.

Curated by department chair Joseph Maida
March 12 – March 26, 2019
SVA Chelsea Gallery, New York City
Reception: Thursday, March 14, 6:00 – 8:00 pm
