DPI Chair Deborah Willis and Photography & Imaging alumnus Hank Willis Thomas curated an exhibition entitled Social in Practice: The Art of Collaboration, which will be on view at NYU Tisch Gulf + Western Gallery & 8th floor galleries from October 16th through November 29th, 2014. The featured projects, each addressing a specific social issue, span an array of mediums and represent artists’ initiatives around the world.
Pete Brook at prisonphotography.org reviewed the show at its debut venue, The Nathan Cummings Foundation, and describes the “innovative” show as “teeming with powerful and important works.” The review goes on to give to great descriptions of all of the included projects. Link.
