Against the Current: 2024 Design MFA Thesis Exhibition

April 19 – May 11, 2024

Against the Current reassesses contemporary societal behaviours and invites viewers to consider new paths forward. Featuring thesis works from four graduating MFA candidates, this exhibition explores analogue antidotes, challenges restrictive historical cycles, offers tools for BIPOC design students, and unpacks emerging autonomy. Integral to the work is a spirit of rebellion and resilience—a rejection of structural, cultural, and traditional constraints.
