New exhibit features works of Stanley Greenberg


This piece by Stanley Greenberg is part of the new exhibit, ‘Excavation: Recent Photographs by Stanley Greenberg,’ at Fairfield University’s Bellarmine Museum of Art.

Fairfield University’s Bellarmine Museum of Art travels to the streets of New York City for its newest exhibition, “Excavation: Recent Photographs by Stanley Greenberg,” which opens on Friday, April 12, with a free reception with the artist from 6 to 8 p.m. This show remains on view through Friday, June 14.

“Excavation” is the artistic culmination of architectural photographer Greenberg’s quest to walk every street in New York City, documenting the typologies he encounters while traversing the island in search of remnants of a forgotten urban past.

Featuring nine large format black and white images and close to 50 smaller color photographs arranged by typologies, “Excavation,” with its accompanying catalog and related programming, is designed to introduce its audiences to a whole new way of engaging with Manhattan.

Greenberg has authored four photography books and received numerous honors, including a fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, and grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.

Greenberg has exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. His works are in the public collections of the Brooklyn Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and Museum of the City of New York. He has lectured at the South Street Seaport Museum, Borough of Manhattan Community College, Museum of the City of New York and International Center of Photography.

Faculty contributors to “Excavation: Recent Photographs by Stanley Greenberg” include Kurt Schlichting (sociology) and Johanna Garvey (English). Dr. Joon Lee also contributed to this exhibition.

The following free programs related to the exhibition are scheduled:

• Family Day: Street Art (best for ages 4 and up), Saturday, April 14, 1 to 4 p.m.
