Anika Sabin is the executive director at the Capricious Foundation, where they previously worked as editor and associate publisher. On curating the exhibitions, Sabin remarks: “We have a slate of dynamic exhibitions that really reflect the students’ rigorous and diverse work, from investigations into notions of power and spectacle, to the conditions of personhood and positionality, to the looming underpinnings of capital, whether seen through domestic artifice, architectural landscape, or the cyclical detritus of labor. These works, enmeshed in the precarious and ebbing residue of a global pandemic, are a site of fissures and foils, of re-orientation and renewal. I look forward to inviting viewers into this series of site-specific exhibitions that not only command and reveal vast interiority but draw the on-looker in, troubling the line between recognition and implication.”

About Pratt Institute’s MFA program in Photography
Pratt Institute’s MFA in Photography is a two-year (four-semester) terminal degree program. We serve students with interests in contemporary art practices—of all varieties—that rely heavily on the role of photographic imagery and imaging. This includes artists who use lens-based cameras; photosensitive materials and/or sensors; re-photography, aggregation, and quotation; and all approaches that fall under the umbrella of the photographic—including research and critical positions with relation to the histories and practices of photography, both still and moving.

Our pedagogy encompasses both lens- and print-based technologies alongside the history and context for the making of photographic images, objects, and installations in the 21st century. Fluency in the language and currency of images in our cultural and media landscapes is a core value of our program.
