Keith Hamilton’s MFA Thesis exhibition, “Are We Really There ?,” opens Saturday, May 12 with a reception for the artist at Pratt Institute’s Dekalb Gallery from 6:00-9:00 pm. The exhibition will run from May 13-18 and gallery hours will be 11:00 am-6:00 pm.
Combining the questions “Are We Really Here?” and “Are We There Yet?,” Hamilton’s thesis exhibition explores diverse concepts including voyeurism in contemporary culture, the impact of social media on our intimate behavior as well as the play of the subconscious. Utilizing saturated color, painted backdrops, masks, mannequins and real humans, Hamilton stages his photographs in his Fort Greene studio and often references art historical subjects.
