Hofstra University’s FORM Student Gallery in Calkins Hall, South Campus, presents an exhibition of photography titled Homme Fatale by Alvia Urdaneta ’15. Urdaneta, who hails from Lancaster, PA, is pursuing a B.S. in fine arts, with a concentration in photography.
Urdaneta, whose art has been inspired by Mario Sorrenti, Tom Ford and Marilyn Manson, hopes to be a fashion photographer after graduating from Hofstra. Of the works featured in Homme Fatale, she says, “Everyone knows a femme fatale, but I have no interest in her. I am interested in the Homme Fatale – I wanted to capture the fatal men in my life, their deadliness bursting through color, and I did it the only way that I know how; in the studio.”
Homme Fatale opens on Monday, November 18, with a reception and refreshments at 5 p.m. The show will be on display through November 22.
Admission is free and open to the public. Viewing hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information call the Department of Fine Arts Design and Art History at 516-463-5474.
