UC Davis arts and humanities graduate students will showcase a variety of timely works in a multidisciplinary virtual exhibition on view through September 6 at the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art’s website.
Despite the pandemic, which has required many of the students to work remotely for a second year, 27 students across the disciplines of art, design, music, creative writing, Native American Studies, English, Spanish, and French are participating in the annual exhibition. “This year’s multidisciplinary online exhibition is a testament to our students’ resilience and creativity,” said Rachel Teagle, the museum’s founding director. “Their work reveals a thriving creative community that found ways to flourish even during a global pandemic.”
Individual web pages present the students’ work through installation photographs, video, audio, and written statements. Many of the projects connect with larger issues, including climate change, environmental destruction, political divisions, racism, immigration, and more, and take a wide range of forms, including photography, ceramics, augmented reality, illustration, and jewelry design.
“This show reflects what our College is all about: thinking across disciplines, exploring today’s most pressing issues, and creating transformative works,” said Ari Kelman, interim dean of the College of Letters and Science. “From using design to retrofit old technology and bring new life into it to building interactive murals at the US-Mexico border to humanize deportation stories, the depth of cross-disciplinary thinking here is truly remarkable.”
A virtual opening celebration on June 10 announced the winners of the Keister & Allen Art Purchase Prize for an art student (Genevra Daley, work pictured above) and The Savageau Award for design (Kaylani Juanita McCard).
