September 25 - November 20, 2020
A group exhibition featuring work from the 2020 Studio Art MFA program.
From UT VAC:
“After a long, unforeseen hiatus, the 2020 Studio Art MFA cohort is proud to present their thesis exhibition, _____: Revisited. Comprising works in painting, photography, sculpture, video, and installation, this exhibition celebrates the critical discussions and collaborative experience this group of twelve artists has shared over the past two years. The title of the exhibition is left intentionally open, acknowledging the long pause and recent return to work this cohort has experienced. Reconsidering their work in a new context, each artist is invited to fill in the blank.
Through a range of interdisciplinary practices, the artists each explore what it means to persist as a body trapped in time—a notion drawn from the French philosopher Jean-François Lyotard. To be a body trapped in time is to be a human observer, watching change happen right before your eyes while seeking ways to either grasp it or look away. Revisiting their work in the wake of a monumental change in the world and in their daily lives, each artist’s work acknowledges these perspectival shifts: what it means to make art, what it means to be an artist, to be an activist, to be a good person; where purpose can be found, and how change can be made.”
