This page seeks to connect current students with events in the wider world, and welcomes both faculty and alumni to post about upcoming shows, workshops, and events.

Mission: At the Photography Program at Bard College, we believe the photographer's growth depends on the simultaneous development of a strong understanding of the visual language of photography, the acquisition of technique, and the overcoming of visual and psychological preconceptions to open up each student's opportunities for expression.

"In part, an artist and a Professor of Art in (the still-charging-tuition, and the school should stop doing so now before yet more debt burdens more students who are not the ones who mismanaged the school’s finances – its Board of Trustees and administrators did so for decades [check out the lawsuit against the Board] The Cooper Union. The list of exhibitions (good, bad and mediocre ones); awards and grants (merited, not merited, grateful for, rejected and/or returned); education (some of it thought-provoking; some of it, less so); publications (I am fond of some of my books, but more so of the books of Jalal Toufic. You can find his here: jalaltoufic.com), can be found somewhere online."

The Photography Program and the Human Rights Project are pleased to announce that Martha Rosler will be giving a lecture at Weis Cinema on Monday, October 28th! The lecture will begin at 6pm and is free and open to the public.

"Martha Rosler works in photography, video, sculpture, installation, and performance. Her practice centers on the interactions of the public and the private spheres, exploring issues from everyday life and the media to war and the built environment, especially as they affect women. She aims to engage people as citizens, investigating and challenging the way power is normalized through images and discourses. Rosler’s work has been widely exhibited, nationally and internationally. Her photo/text piece The Bowery in two inadequate descriptive systems (1974-75) is considered a milestone in the examination of documentary practices in art and photography. She has published several books of photographs, texts, and commentary on the uses of space, ranging from airports, roads, and underground train systems to housing and gentrification. Her writing has appeared in publications such as Artforum, e-flux journal, and Texte zur Kunst. Rosler lives and works in Brooklyn."

Howard Greenberg Gallery
BARD X HGG, CURATED BY STEPHEN SHORE
Main Gallery
JUNE 20 - AUGUST 29

NEW YORK—Last winter the legendary photographer Stephen Shore received an unusual request from Howard Greenberg Gallery: Would he be interested in curating an exhibition that included his students from the renowned photography program at Bard College? The answer was, “yes,” and the resulting collaboration, Bard x HGG, pairs work by seven of Shore’s recent graduates with photographs by historic 20th century artists from the Gallery’s vast archives.

The exhibition will be on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery from June 20 through August 29, 2019. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, June 20, from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

“Stephen Shore is a bridge connecting contemporary photography with the history of photography,” said Howard Greenberg. “As a contemporary figure and an important part of photo history, he is in a unique position to be able to connect a new generation of photographers and viewers.”

“I think of myself as both a photographer and a teacher and am delighted to have this opportunity to show my student’s work,” said Stephen Shore, Program Director & Susan Weber Professor in the Arts at Bard College. “Each of the recent graduates (from 2017 and 2018) is represented by a series of pictures so you can get a sense of their thought process and artistic practice.”

Works by the Bard graduates—Jasmine Clarke, Madison Emond, Briauna Falk, Vanessa Kotovich, Jackson Siegal, Naomi Zahler, and Ying Jing Zheng—are paired with photographs by Dave Heath, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Lisette Model, Frederick Sommer, Stephen Shore, Joseph Sudek, and Minor White from Howard Greenberg Gallery’s extensive holdings.

Shore noted that the pairings vary from artist to artist, often highlighting an aspect of the recent graduate’s work. For the work by artists from the Gallery, Shore selected images by many photographers with whom he has personal connections: “David Heath was a friend to me when I was 14 and taught me about printing, and I was in a 10-day workshop run by Minor White when I was at the Hotchkiss School in Connecticut.”

Providing a gateway to the exhibition, work by Don Donaghy will be presented within the context of Bard x HGG. “While going through the Gallery’s archive, I came across Donaghy’s work and thought it would be wonderful to show,” said Shore. “His work was considered cutting edge in the 1960s. Yet, his photographs disappeared from public view despite the important role they played in the development of contemporary photography.”

We are pleased to announce that Michele Abeles will be giving a lecture at Weis Cinema on Monday, April 22nd! The lecture will begin at 6pm and is free and open to the public.

"Michele Abeles uses photography as a tool to explore the physical and psychological experience of the digital revolution. She examines the use-value of images and image production. This includes our emotional relationship to images along with their wider societal role in commerce and politics. Abeles shoots both in the studio and out in the world. She moves fluidly between different photographic genres such as still life, the nude and street photography."
