What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from course instructors Viktor Koen and Shelley Haven

Viktor Koen has a solo exhibition, “Bestiary: Bizarre Myths and Chimerical Fancies” on view now at United Photo Industries. Drawing from the pictorial collection of the US Library of Congress, Koen concocts “a deformed pantheon” of mythical characters while exploring the languages of early photography and archival preservation. Hear more from Viktor at Cosmos Radio.
