DESCRIPTION

The Exquisite Landscape: A Transcript of Sight, on view from September 10, 2010 through
January 2, 2011 in the Rita K. Hillman Education Gallery of the School of the International Center
of Photography (1114 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street), is a look at the social landscape
relating to the emerging ICP-Bard community. Founded in 2003, the ICP-Bard Program in Advanced
Photographic Studies offers a rigorous exploration of all aspects of photography through an
integrated curriculum of professional and studio practice, critical study, and Resident Artist Projects.
The exhibition celebrates a spirit of collaboration and explores circles of influence within a
conversation between several diverse practices within the photographic medium including
performance, sculpture, installation, and video. Curated by Marla Leigh Caplan, ICP-Bard class of
2007, the show features work by nearly 50 alumni, faculty, and visiting artists who have comprised
the ICP-Bard Program during its formative years. An expansive consideration of site, the work
on view engages in a dialogue about the reciprocal impact of the individual and the environment
in situations that reveal the spirit of a place, its psychological, sexual, emotional, and intellectual
charge.
