Visiting Artist Andrew Zuckerman Exhibits at the SUNY Ulster Muroff Kotler Visual Arts Gallery


October 11 – November 2

September 25, 2018 – Stone Ridge, NY – The SUNY Ulster Visiting Artist Series brings the work of Andrew Zuckerman, titled “A Message from the Exterior,” to the Muroff Kotler Visual Arts Gallery from October 11 to November 2.  A slide lecture and opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 11, at 7:00 p.m. in the College Lounge, Vanderlyn Hall. This event is free and open to the public.

Visiting Artist Andrew Zuckerman is an award winning photographer, filmmaker, and curator. Much of his work is concerned with the intersection of nature and technology. His immersive investigation of the natural world has produced multiple books and exhibitions collected in three volumes: Creature (2007), Bird (2009), and Flower (2012). Zuckerman’s ongoing portrait practice utilizes both photography and filmed interview formats to examine human perspectives. With the support of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, he released Wisdom in 2008 as a book, a feature length documentary film, and a global traveling exhibition.

For this exhibition, Andrew will show a selection of works from his series “A Message from the Exterior,” an installation of photographic works from his continued investigation of the human relationship to the natural world. Through a systematic and objective approach to live subjects, presented in extreme resolution and clarity, his intention is to celebrate these subjects in a way that makes them feel new and somehow undiscovered.

Suzy Jeffers, Gallery Coordinator and Professor, says, “We are so thrilled to be able to present in the gallery an artist of Andrew's remarkable depth, breadth, and accomplishment. It is a welcome and rare opportunity for our students and community to experience work of this scale and caliber.”

The Muroff-Kotler Visual Arts Gallery at SUNY Ulster serves as a center for creative activity at the College and within the community. It also functions as an environment for teaching, performing, and exhibiting. The Muroff Kotler Visual Arts Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and is closed on college holidays.
