Each semester, we bring in several emerging scholars and artists from diverse backgrounds who are embarking on careers in communications education. They spend a week during which they give guest lectures, sit in on classes, meet faculty across campus, and give a public presentation on their work.
Danielle Bowman's work focuses on the way that people occupy space and time. Her recent photographic work, titled Here, Now is engaged with ideas around landscape, time and the unknown aspects of personal and cultural histories. In her Diversity Emerging Artist lecture, Bowman will discuss her current work, older work and everything in between. Her residency is March 18-22;
Andre Bradley was our guest during the week of Sept 24, 2018. Bradley lives and works in Philadelphia, PA; he has been a fellow at Image Text Ithaca, Hampshire College’s Creative Media Institute, the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center and has work in the permanent collection of the RISD Museum of Art. Bradley’s book Dark Archives has been shortlisted for the 2016 Photo-Text Book Award at Les Recontres De La Photographie, and the 2016 Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation First PhotoBook Award.
His residency involved presenting new works and works-in-progress and a day of collaboration with him to create a short video piece. He focused on themes of archival art practice, sequence, narrative and juxtaposition, memory and writing, and race.
