Massachusetts College of Art and Design is proud to present the 2019 MassArt MFA Summer Thesis Exhibition, which will showcase the work of nine graduate students in the final year of their Low-Residency MFA Program in Interdisciplinary Practice. The work on view will stem from a variety of media, including sculpture, multimedia installation, and live performance.
Participating artists include Melody Albright, Vasilisa Gladysheva, Ruth Henry, Kevin Long, Geena Lopes, Melissa McGrath, Hasnat Mehmood, Jeff Mentuck, and Lauren Young. Their work draws on themes ranging from landscape and environmental trauma; to the human brain; to how to have uncomfortable conversations.
The exhibition will be on view from July 22 – August 8, 2019 at MassArt’s Design and Media Center, (621 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA, 02115). A reception will be held on Friday August 2 from 6 – 8 pm. Both the exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. Regular gallery hours are 10 am – 5 pm Monday through Saturday.
