SVA MFA Photo, Video and Related Media

SVA MFA Photo, Video and Related Media Lens and Screen Arts Since 1988
(10)

The MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department is the premiere program for the study of Lens and Screen Arts. For over 25 years, this fine art program has produced remarkable graduates who have flourished as exhibiting artists, journalists, and commercial artists, as well as curators, scholars, and teachers. Noted as a top-tier program in U.S. News & World Report, our educational goals attract fine art students with diverse backgrounds from all corners of the world.

Mission: Beginning with the nascence of the digital age in the late 1980s, SVA recognized the need for integrating photography into the “realm of the circuit.” Charles H. Traub was appointed to build a graduate program that would be innovative and lead the field in this pursuit. Since its inception, the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media department has been lauded for achievements in the integration of new theories, contexts and techniques of an evolving, creative medium. Video has been an important part of our MFA program since 1990. It has developed to become the major area of concentration for many of our students, and is an important artistic resource for many others. We have a diverse faculty, distinguished in their own artistic and professional practices. Most of our alumni continue their own practice, creating significant bodies of work.

I’m pleased to announce my upcoming show with Womanmade Gallery, @womanmadegallery Chicago, IL, beginning June 5th. Follow the gallery to stay tuned on deets. I will be showing a few of my pieces from last year called “Remembering”. Www.heatherolker.com

Remembering employs confessional performance to consider sexual trauma from an interior and psychological perspective. Through a simultaneously soothing and painful ritual, the viewer can observe the stages of recovery from denial to acceptance and healing.

The project is a multi-channel installation with sound and sheer textiles. The arrangement of the installation takes on the form of a maze to mirror the complexities of the human mind as it navigates grief, trauma, and recovery; around each corner, a new set of monitors can be seen.

I want to thank @chrismarklein and Team for the opportunity to do this Instagram takeover. I’ve met some great people virtually thanks to this! Please follow me @heatherolker if you want to stay posted on new work, collaboration or just someone to chat with in this new crazy reality!!!

Thanks to my amazing professors who helped me throughout my MFA to have a portfolio I’m quite proud of! @wardell_milan @shimon_attie @elinorcarucci @andrewlambdinmoore @charlestraub @whywelook @postmastersgallery

Have an amazing Memorial Day Weekend everyone - as much as we can 💕

That’s all folks! Signing off for now. Happy Friday! Get your drink 🍷 ready. I know I am!

“In Repetition We Trust” | Seeing Red | January 2020
This is Heather Olker (@heatherolker), SVA MFA Photo & Video Class of 2020, and I’ll be sharing multimedia collages from my body of work entitled “Seeing Red” throughout this week’s Instagram takeover.

Seeing Red is an installation of mixed media photographic collages that incorporates fashion photographs, newspaper articles, ink drawings, and various household materials. Through physical cutting and manipulation, the project addresses the perpetuation of rape culture and domestic violence by visually severing the connection between pleasure and violence, ultimately enacting a fantasy in which patriarchal power is subverted.

01/29/2020

Distinguished photographer and SVA MFA Photo/Video & Related Media faculty member Gus Powell (@dirtywhitebucks) has released his latest photobook titled Family Car Trouble. The collection of images compiled in the book provides an intimate and sincere perspective on some of life's greatest moments from triumph and tragedy to trivial car repairs.
.

Of Powell's release, photographer Sally Mann has said,

“Family. Car. Trouble. Three nouns. When doesn’t trouble follow both family and car? A tender series of pictures: I fell in love with everybody. Especially the car.”
.

Gus Powell's work has appeared in Aperture, The New Yorker, A Public Space, and Vogue. He has been a cherished and intergral part of the MFA Photo/Video and Related Media faculty.

The Mayfly is a multimedia exhibition about the transient nature of our lives; the fleeting fragments we experience against the constant pressure of permanence. The Mayfly explores the residue that the temporal leaves behind; what these brief junctures imprint on us and how we are inclined to express that. With this exhibition, we seek to share stories of ephemerality and how the briefest of moments create powerful emotions that last a lifetime. Submission Deadline: March 21, open to all media. You can find the prospectus and apply on our website https://www.rockawayartistsalliance.org/themayfly
