The exhibition is a culminating moment for students in the 2-year Stamps MFA program. An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 15, 6–8 pm.
Masimba Hwati – Sokunge
Through performance, sculpture, and sound, Hwati’s Sokunge explores forms of cultural resistance, and the use of symbolism to modify power and contest domination.
Laura Magnusson – Blue
Magnusson’s Blue is a single channel video of the artist, shot on a seafloor, moving arduously through the water as she burrows through the afterlife of sexual violence.
Bridget Quinn – The A.W.E. Society
Reconnecting people with the natural world, Quinn’s The A.W.E. Society is an experimental wilderness guide, including site-specific activities and performances.
Rowan Renee – No Spirit For Me
Through loom-weaving, lithography and metal-work, Renee interrogates how the intersection of homophobia and misogyny contribute to the systemic failure of the criminal justice system.
Mayela Rodriguez – Estampa Cartonera
Transforming the gallery into a cartonera press, Rodriguez reminds the community of the vibrant world of Latina artists and designers
