Faculty Updates


What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from Photography course instructors Richard Rothman, Jeanette Spicer, and Magali Duzant!

Richard Rothman was recently featured in “American Surfaces and the Photobook,” a MoMA exhibition that recognized photobooks as “a dynamic medium for publishing, collecting, and curating.” Rothman’s book, Redwood Saw, documents his exploration of Northern California’s old-growth forests and neighboring Crescent City.

Jeanette Spicer was featured in a Dazed interview for Sea(see), her forthcoming book featuring a series of photographs documenting her first relationship with a woman. In this interview, she recounts her post-MFA need to reconnect with her medium while exploring intimacy with her girlfriend. “There are many iterations and nuances within the female gaze,” she says. “It’s important to differentiate between a queer woman looking at another woman’s body, a queer woman looking at her partner’s body, and a straight woman looking at a woman’s body. I don’t frequently see a lot of queer women photographing their partners and it needs to have more visibility.”

Magali Duzant is participating in This is Not Here, RE:21, curated by Efrem Zelony-Mindell, where she is showing a set of large scale cyanotypes on silk made from her slide projector cyanotype series. And she curated A Rose Is A Screen Is A Rose, a group exhibition at the Pelham Art Center through June 30. That exhibition asks, “In a world in which nearly all sight is modified and mediated through a screen, how do artists both embrace and push back against this?”
