As you may have heard, Carl Toth has ended his Artist-in-Residency position within the photo department @ Cranbrook. Reed Kroloff, Director of Cranbrook Academy of Art and Museum, released this statement below. It is really a great addition to Cranbrook to have David Hilliard, who's site and work is here.
I am delighted to report that noted photographer David Hilliard will be joining Cranbrook this fall as the Artist in Residence for Photography. David is a young photographer with a mature reputation. His work hangs in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Los Angeles County Museum, the Miami Art Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and many others. He has been published widely in books (including a recent monograph from Aperture Foundation publishers), catalogues, and magazines (twice as “Featured Photographer” in Blind Spot), and his work has been reviewed in publications ranging from Nylon and Vanity Fair to Art in America and Photo District News. David has been the subject of more than 25 solo shows, and at least twice that many group shows.
David holds degrees from the Massachusetts College of Art—where he currently teaches, and Yale University—where he previously chaired the Undergraduate Photography program. He has also taught at Harvard, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Fine Arts Works Center in Provincetown, among others. He is the recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, and was a Fulbright Scholar.
David’s work is exceptional and his teaching experience is substantial. Please visit his website (www.davidhilliard.com) to learn more, and to see a brief selection of his work. David and I and about 70 others will all be First Years together this fall. I’m looking forward to it, and I hope you are too.
See you soon,
Cranbrook Academy of Art and Museum
