Pratt Photo Senior Mike Finkelstein at Art Basel Miami!
“An ongoing collaboration between Pratt Institute and cognac brand Hennessy allowed one current student and two recent graduates to prominently exhibit their fine art, photography, and film work in the Epic Hotel lobby during Art Basel-Miami Beach, the renowned international art fair that attracts 50,000 visitors from around the world each December.
The Pratt work on display during the fair included winners from a competition, organized by Pratt’s Office of Corporate Relations and led by Graduate Communications Design Chair Jeff Bellantoni, that challenged art and design students from several departments to create work inspired by the theme of Hennessy’s recent campaign: “Never stop. Never settle.” The exhibition at the Epic Hotel featured work by the three winners: André De Castro, (M.F.A. Graphic Design, ’13), who won first place, as well as Mike Finkelstein (B.F.A. Photography, Class of ’14) and Stephen Mondics (B.F.A. Film/Video ’13).”

"Highlighting contemporary work that engages with real time, virtual time, historical time, recorded time, manipulated time, and the passage of time, the artists included in 0 to 60 blur the boundaries between art, craft, and design. Drawing upon elements of engineering, robotics, and computer software and using materials as diverse as steel wool, beads, paper cups, time-lapse video, and 24-karat gold, these artists utilize non-traditional media to encourage us to think about our experience of time in new and varied ways.
Co-organized by the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, North Carolina and Penland School of Crafts, Penland, North Carolina. Generous support provided by the Windgate Charitable Foundation and the Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Additional support provided by the Fenwick Foundation, presenting sponsor.”

Tonight in the ARC Photography Gallery: Radiance of what is an MFA Photo exhibition
"For in the immediate world, everything is to be discerned, for him who can discern it, and centrally and simply, without a either dissection into science or digression into art, but with the whole of consciousness, seeking to perceive it as it stands: so that the aspect of a street in sunlight can roar in the heart of itself as a symphony, perhaps as no symphony can: and all of consciousness is shifted from the imagined, the revisive, to the effort to perceive simply the cruel radiance of what is.” — James Agee
