To celebrate this landmark achievement, a series of exhibitions with graduate work is going to be organized in multiple locations across the globe. The first one is going to be held in Berlin, Germany at exp12 gallery. The second exhibition, scheduled for S&atilde;o Paulo, Brazil, is in preparation.</p> <p>Each exhibition is going to center on a larger theme, the Berlin one being <em>The (Im)Personal Landscape</em>. The natural world has long served as either inspiration or a theme for artists. For example, in painting, landscapes served as backdrops for large battles, or they reminded humans, represented through small buildings or figures, of the grandeur and power of the larger world they had to face. In photography, similar themes have been explored throughout the medium's history.</p> <p>The artists represented in this exhibition each take landscapes as their staging grounds, delving deeply into their own biographies, whether in a deeply personal manner or working with larger societal themes. Ostensibly a collection of landscape photographs, <em>The (Im)Personal Landscape </em>speaks of the struggles human beings have faced in this world, struggles seen through the eyes of five graduates. They are: Morgan Ashcom (USA), Leo Goddard (GB), Susan Hayre<sup><a class="sdfootnoteanc" name="sdfootnote1anc" href="#sdfootnote1sym" rel="nofollow"><sup>*</sup></a></sup> (USA), Daniel Reuter (D/ISL), Josee Schryer (CAN).</p> <p><span style="font-family: 'DejaVu Sans Condensed', sans-serif;">Given the Photography MFA Program has a very strong photobook component &ndash; at the time of the exhibition three of the photographers will have published their books, the exhibition will also feature a book component. Being able to see actual books will allow visitors to experience work done by graduates through this particular medium.</span></p> <p><span style="color: #0000ff;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-family: 'DejaVu Sans Condensed', sans-serif;"><strong>www.</strong></span></span></span></span><span style="color: #0000ff;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', sans-serif;"><em><strong></strong></em></span></span></span></span></p> <p><a class="sdfootnotesym" name="sdfootnote1sym" href="#sdfootnote1anc" rel="nofollow">&nbsp;</a></p> Tue, 30 Aug 2016 17:05:06 +0000 Marcus Weber - Laura Mars Gallery - September 9th - September 30th Tue, 30 Aug 2016 07:28:36 +0000 Peter Böhnisch - CFA Charlottenburg - September 1st - October 1st Thu, 25 Aug 2016 06:50:23 +0000
