Albert Vecerka, CCNY Show


“Five Artists + Architecture” Exhibit at CCNY Spitzer School of Architecture Explores Interdisciplinary Influences on Design Education

Albert Vecerka is currently in a group show with four other faculty members at CCNY. Participation of each artist was predicated upon the fact that they taught within the architecture school, but did not practice architecture. Albert’s installation consisted of fifty-three images, made over the course of twenty years, practicing as an architectural photographer. He started his ‘Harlem project’ in the mid-nineties during his studies at the School of Architecture at City College. At the time, he was living in Harlem, honing his craft photography while documenting the changes in his neighborhood. His current work, documenting the broader city’s transition, is included with examples of a collaboration with Weiss/Manfredi, Davis Brody Bond Architects and the documentation of Renzo Piano Building Workshop’s Jerome L Greene Science Center, by Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The wall installation also includes work he made of Eastern State Penitentiary, which has previously been exhibited at The New School.
