WHAT:

Selections features the remarkable work of MassArt professors who are newly hired or returning from sabbatical. A venue for faculty to showcase their work, often in experimental directions or media, this exhibition is a perennial favorite. Representing all facets of the college, Selections highlights the work of MassArt’s multi-talented faculty. Exploring aesthetic, sociopolitical, cultural, and design issues, faculty members have developed a diverse range of works: from an affordable water pump for subsistence farmers and important statements on social injustice to sumptuous explorations of nature, enamel self-parodies, and collaborations with young rappers who perform interventionist critiques of art museums. Works on view include site-specific installation, photography, video, sculpture, painting, and works on paper.

Featured Artists:  Suzanne Barnes, Ericka Beckman, Rick Brown & Laura Brown ’93, James Cambronne, Robert Coppola, Nancy Cusack, Lars Fischer, Matthew Hinçman ’93, Kofi Kayiga, Steve Locke ’01, James McLeod, Laura McPhee, Juan Obando, Juan Ormaza, Lyssa Palu-ay ’01, James M. Read, Irina Rozovsky ’07, Amber Davis Tourlentes ’88, Wojciech Wolynski, Joe Wood

 

WHO:
