Eric Gottesman is a photographic artist and organizer. Central to his practice is collaboration. He uses photography, writing, and film as vehicles to engage others in conversation and critical thought about the social structures that surround them, and him.

He works slowly, often spending a long time in a community, and exhibits work locally first, to an audience determined by the cocreators of the work. Gottesman studied politics and economics and, later, art.

In 2003 he was named one of the top 25 young American photographers.

He has earned a Fulbright Fellowship in art as well as awards from the Magnum Foundation, Artadia; the Aaron Siskind Foundation, apexart; the Open Society Foundation; and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

His work is in various collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 2012 the Addison Gallery of American Art, the deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, and the Clark Gallery exhibited his work.

He was the 2012 artist in residence at Amherst College and at the Addison Gallery of American Art. His first book is forthcoming: Sudden Flowers: May the Finest In the World Always Accompany You.

He has taught at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Amherst College, the International Center for Photography, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston and in collaborative workshops in Lebanon, Jordan and Ethiopia.

Touring the Social Imaginary

CATALYSTRANSIT is a project organized by Ana Labastida, circulating through the Bay Area’s Casual Carpool from Fruitvale Avenue in Oakland to Fremont Street in San Francisco, that questions how we interpret the mundane moments during commutes.

To participate, or for more information, visit www.catalystransit.com.

This project is part of Touring the Social Imaginary, a series of exhibitions and participatory, public programs across the Bay Area organized by PLAySPACE, that map the social imaginary using research-intensive processes to ask questions about places and the people that inhabit them.
