Tufts University Art Galleries and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University proudly present As Above, So Below, the Master of Fine Arts virtual exhibition launching June 1, 2020. A Zoom celebration featuring artist talks and a virtual walkthrough will take place Thursday, June 4, at 6:30pm (EDT).
Organized and presented in a digital format, the online exhibition highlights the work of seventeen new and emerging voices in contemporary art: Cameron Barker, Chelsey Becker, Mia Fabrizio, Billy Foshay, Grace Gomez, Liz LaPides, Sally Lee, John Lehman, Marla McLeod, Andrew Perini, Gabriel Richardson, Ralph Robinson, Gil Spears, Yixiang Tong, Karli Tucker, Denise Waite, and Kimothy Wu.
In As Above, So Below, a digital exhibition catalogue will be available for download, an individual webpage for each student will feature images of their work, and an interactive 3D model of the Tufts University Art Galleries’ exhibition spaces at the Aidekman Arts Center in Medford will highlight the students’ work in conversation with one another. The graduating students will also lead a gallery tour of this model and talk about their respective work at the June 4 Zoom event.
Founded in 1876, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University is a unique art school affiliated with both a major art museum — the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston — and a Tier-1 research university. The school provides an exceptional fine arts education that allows students to craft individualized programs of study while being mentored closely by world-renowned faculty and staff. SMFA at Tufts is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and is a member of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD).
