The School of Photographic Arts and Sciences in the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology will host Cosentinoworks, an MFA thesis exhibition by Daniel Cosentino. The exhibition will be on view from Oct. 19 to 29, in the SPAS Gallery, located on the third floor of the Gannett Building (7B) on RIT campus.
Cosentino attended Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy, before deciding to continue his formal art education at RIT. He describes his work as “an exploration of self and natural phenomenon mediated through art history and visual traditions.”
Cosentinoworks features installation video works that explore conceptual art-making issues, such as transformations of “readymade” art objects and extended time-lapse video portraits. Cosentino works as an artist and educator using his studio space as a canvas to conduct and record an array of natural observations regarding perception and life as an artist.
The SPAS Gallery is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call (585) 475-2616.
