The faculty members write, “In an age when every moment is photographed, uploaded, tagged, and shared it can seem difficult to see beyond the momentary to the momentous. In Art & The Everyday we look at how artists previously, and currently engage with the ebb and flow of daily life as fodder and inspiration for their art practices from the 1960s to now. Before the advent of reality TV, social media and it’s multiplying personalities, and smart phones as an extension of ourselves artists began to investigate the everyday small gestures that built up and defined a life. This class allows students to explore the Historical and current use of The Everyday as subject matter. The featured work here are final projects of each students take on “The Everyday”, from Andrea Mendoza’s images of the intimate moments experienced as women search for their personal identities to the work of Peter Smith’s photographs of quiet, gestural moments that allow us to stop and think in a bustling city, and Paul Katcher’s thoughtful images capturing the sights and sounds, patterns and synchronicity of the city around us.”

See this student work in our exhibition space at 209 East 23rd Street until October 31.
