The Department of Art at Brooklyn College is pleased to announce its 2016 MFA thesis exhibition, Thru-Line. The show is on view at Moynihan Station (formerly the James A. Farley Post Office) from Thursday, May 5 through Tuesday, May 10.
Featured Artists: Tegan M. Brozyna, Melissa Capasso, Valery Estabrook, AnneMarie Graham, Javan Grover, Dianne Hebbert, Debbi Kenote, Angela Kim, Alyssa McClenaghan, Abigail S. Miller, Steven Naukam, Francesca Simonite, Charles Sommer, and Michael Uttaro.
The exhibition, curated by Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori of The They Co. and SPRING/BREAK Art Show, features work by 14 MFA candidates graduating from Brooklyn College this spring. Thru-Line represents the culmination of two years of research and experimentation in the studio. It highlights the diverse styles, interests, and varied methods of art making available to contemporary artists today. Exhibited work includes painting, drawing, fibers, sculpture, video, ceramics, and photography to work that blurs the lines between these. Although seemingly disparate, there is a consistent line of questioning that wrestles with and explores diverse ideas of identity, culture, politics, memory, and place.
The exhibition and opening reception are free, and open to the public.* Visitors will enter at the Post Office entrance on 8th Avenue near West 31st Street. Gallery hours are Friday–Tuesday from 12–4pm.
*For ADA Accessibility please notify Veronika Golova in advance. We will anticipate your arrival, and facilitate access.
