About the Event
The twenty-seven practices of this year’s graduating cohort defy a single rubric, yet together manifest more than the sum of their parts. Returning to their studios and each other’s company as the pandemic’s restrictions recede, many artists approach space and presence, whether physical or virtual, with new urgency. A surplus of sculpture and installation, as well as painting, photography, drawing, video, and interactive digital media, finds points of intersection in the exhibition around memory and ritual, whether personal, cultural, or institutional; translation, both linguistic and technological; physical infrastructures, economic abstractions, and ecological interdependencies. Circumstantial though their assembly might be, these works and their makers conjure momentary coalitions as much as they play to the contradictions between them.
