Gregory Halpern [Faculty] and Oscar Palacio [Faculty] in Transitions-Rochester

Transitions-Rochester is an international collaboration between Visual Studies Workshop, FOTODOK, George Eastman House and Rochester Contemporary Art Center looking at the changing city of Rochester, New York, a former company town dealing with urban sprawl, new concepts of city planning, high unemployment rates and poverty.  For the past two years artists from The Netherlands and Rochester have been documenting the city's urban core through photography, video and sound for art works that investigate the changing city.

Transitions (so far) includes the work of Theo Baart (NL), Jason Bernagozzi (USA), FUA Krew (USA), Gregory Halpern (USA), Cary Markerink (NL), Juliana Muniz (USA), Oscar Palacio (CO), Andrea Stultiens (NL) and Dan Varenka (USA).

An opening reception will be held on September 2, 2011 from 6 - 9 PM.  A major open house event with all the international artists and curators present, as well as live music and live graffiti writing will be on October 13, 2011 from 6 - 10 PM at Visual Studies Workshop.
