Join us at MANA Contemporary for the opening reception of Tales, Processes, and Moments: An Exhibition of Collective Works from the 2012-2014 Master's Seminar, featuring the work of 15 students from the School at ICP.

Work in the exhibition is drawn from a yearlong, collaboratively taught seminar, in which students develop a significant project, from early conceptualization to final presentation.

The class offers an unparalleled approach to photography that incorporates hands-on practice, history, and experiential learning in a highly intellectual and thematically curated setting. Students engage in dialogue with visiting artists, gallery directors, museum curators, and private dealers. Running a full year, the course also provides the time and flexibility needed for the exploration and self-examination of each student’s creative process, leading towards the development of a full body of work.

The Master's Seminar is the brainchild of ICP faculty members Alison Bradley, a curator and specialist in photography, and Chuck Kelton, artist and master gelatin silver printer.

Transportation for the Opening:
There will be a minivan traveling from Journal Square Path train to MANA every 15-20 minutes from 5:30 pm until 9:15 pm, leaving from the Taxi Stand in front of the station.

There will also be a bus (with a capacity of holding 50 people) departing from ICP at 6:15 pm. The bus will depart from MANA at 8:15 pm and return to ICP. Spots are held by reservations only and will cost $10 for the round trip. Please RSVP to Ben Simon at
