Familiar Strange is an exhibition curated by Efrem Zelony-Mindell of new works by the MFA 2017 graduates from the International Center of Photography-Bard College. 

In Familiar Strange, seven artists – Sasha Louis Bush, Marla Hernandez, Gülsüm Kavuncu, Sam Margevicius, Hyungjo Moon, Cristina Velásquez and Nechama Winston – establish relationships through their imaginative and documentary works. Together, their conversation finds parallels and highlights the ways in which speaking in a visual language differentiates from other forms of connecting and communicating. Their works induce the viewer into creating new bonds and relationships. This happens through inconsistent and ever changing forms particular to each artist’s practice in their mode of picture 

Once total strangers to each other, these seven artists have emerged into a new state of familiar after working together in the last two years at ICP-Bard. The subtle, yet concrete similarities between them are what make their union strong. They provoke us to move beyond our differences and perhaps celebrate and find strength in what makes us unique to each other. We are each human—men and women, all sorts of sizes, shapes and colors—but here we are, each of us just people.
