SVA 2009 MFA Thesis Exhibition

I finally got a chance to go and see the MFA Photography , Video and Related Media Department Thesis Exhibition of The School of Visual Arts. The exhibition was curated by Bonnie Yochelson. See below my favorite picks of the show: 

Lissa Rivera
Incantations of a Doll Collector
Video, Mixed Media, Dimensions Variable

This was my favorite work. Great installation, reminded me of Eve Sussman's installation  currently on display at the Winkleman Gallery. I had been looking at Lissa Rivera's work for a while. There is a lot of talent over here and, I intent to eventually be able to collect some of her work.

Yiftach Belsky

I also liked the  voyeuristic effect that Yiftach creates with this very intimate ''windows''
