Free and open to the public
Part 2 of colloquium takes place Wednesday, May 4 at 6:30pm
Amy Hauft, Studio Art Graduate Advisor and Leslie Waggener Professor in Sculpture in the Department of Art and Art History, will moderate in-depth conversations over the course of two nights with the graduating artists whose work is presented in the 2016 Studio Art MFA Thesis Exhibition.
This evening will feature the following artists:
Adam Boley (Texas) records duck hunts in which he has participated. His videos of these events explore notions of tradition, masculinity, anticipation and duration as well as our relationship to animals and landscapes.
Roni Chelben’s (Israel) psychologically charged videos document her attempts to create relationships while simultaneously recording her failure to do so.
Adam Crosson (Arkansas) makes sculptures and photographs that reveal complex conditions of site, identity and place.
Elizabeth McClellan (California) creates a multi-media storytelling environment in which she explores social and physical porousness through accelerationist fantasies of genetic manipulation.
Rachel Stuckey (Texas) uses video, computers and the Internet to think about technology’s influence on human bodies, minds and systems of belief.
Presented in conjunction with the 2016 Studio Art MFA Thesis Exhibition, on view April 15 – May 21, 2016.
