Yale MFA Photo Review at Danziger Gallery

The Yale School of Art, often considered one of the top graduate schools for fine art, has once again proven that its talent is keeping time with its reputation. Walking into the Danziger Gallery, one is immediately confronted, not with a photograph, but with a 65 x 57 inch bonnet. The bonnet, a remnant of a 1970 Chevelle SS, has found a second life among the works which surround it—it is the canvas for a stunning self portrait by recent graduate Monique Atherton. 

This year’s work crisscrosses its way through the hot-button themes of today’s art world: race, sexuality, interpretations of bodily representation. The show was curated by Charlotte Cotton, the International Center of Photography’s current curator-in-residence and author of The Photograph as Contemporary Art

The show will be on display at the Danziger Gallery until June 29th, 2016. For more information see: http://www.danzigergallery.com/exhibition/reviver-yale-mfa-photo-2016
