In the Biblio Gallery: Dorm

The students of Art Photography, Introduction (APH) 261 present their final exhibition, showcasing their interpretation of their own lived-spaces. The semester was spent exploring foundational concepts of image-making and photography through field trips, meetings with prominent contemporary artists, and critical dialogues.

For this group exhibition, the APH 261 students have explored themes of object-hood, identity, and individuality. They were free and encouraged to investigate these themes, while considering the place, space, experience, fantasy and idea of life in a college dorm.
