Alumni State of the Art(s) Symposium
To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Tisch School of the Arts, on October 24th, the Department of Photography and Imaging will be hosting the first of a series of alumni panels addressing professional careers and the future of our evolving field.
This first session will feature four distinguished alumni whose careers reflect both the creative and scholarly traditions of our curriculum. Internationally recognized artist Hank Willis Thomas (TSOA, ’98) will discuss his creative career and share views about provocative, activist art, and collaborative models. He will be joined by his frequent collaborator, Jessica Ingram (TSOA,’99), artist and Chair of the Photography Department at California College of the Arts. Chris Mahoney (TSOA,’88), Senior Vice President and Head of the Photography Department at Sotheby’s, will discuss marketing, the market place and the historical research that supports the sale of photographic treasures.
Following the panelist’s comments, there will be an opportunity for a Q&A.
Moderating the panel will be Professor Tom Drysdale.
