The Ties That Bind is a collaboration and conversation between the ICP-Bard’s MFA class of 2016. Hailing from eight different countries, we employ photographic methodologies to challenge and investigate our intimate bonds and personal boundaries.
We have shared common interests that surface in the work and explore our subjective truths, family histories, memories and the impact of trauma.
We ask you to examine what is often overlooked or silenced and held in the peripheries of our experience. We invite you to engage with and find connections between us and the world at large.
Opening Reception: July 8, 2016 | 6 – 8 pm
The opening reception will also include two performances to begin at 7 pm: Moving Images by Minny Lee and lost, lost, lost: you, you, you by Martha Naranjo Sandoval.

MFA Solo Thesis Show season starts over, and I have the honor to break the ice for the Class’16 with I am not your mother. Needless to say I would love dear reader coming over and join me for this big moment. It’s a piece of my experience at ICP-Bard and also the most intimate and wild work I have done. (One of the reasons because the title is in first person).
If there is a word that sums up my experience at this program is “healing”. It’s been a tough but very rewarding job thanks to the support of my beautiful and talented community of classmates, teachers, staff and ICP and NY artist community. So grateful to share this rebirth with you in this long road that my car accident has led me. Continue reading →
