SVA Masters in Digital Photography
Our most important images are on our refrigerators and smartphones. “Exquisite Refrigerator” updates the idea of the Exquisite Corpse, a collaborative poetry game that traces its roots to the Surrealist Movement. Playing off of the steel shipping container, viewers will interact with, rearrange and curate groups of printed contemporary images to create new stories, juxtapositions and relationships. Viewers will become participants and curators, and the results will change from hour to hour and day to day as people collaborate, discuss and rearrange images. Additionally, the process will be documented via smartphone cameras and hashtags to be instantly displayed within the exhibition space.
All artists are graduates of the SVA Masters in Digital Photography department (2008-2016). They range in age from 25-75, come from more than 35 countries, and produce a wide variety of photographic work.
The Master of Professional Studies in Digital Photography is an intensive graduate degree program that addresses the technical and creative aspects of current digital image practices. Professional photographers and photo educators require these in order to be at the vanguard of contemporary fine art, commercial, portrait and fashion photography practices. Within the year, the diverse and talented students excel at producing technically outstanding and conceptually compelling images and multimedia projects. They are then ideally positioned to pursue gallery representation, editorial or commercial work, as well as high-end digital retouching and consulting careers.
