School of Visual Arts Presents “Home Front” Exhibition


The School of Visual Arts presents Home Front, the first of two exhibitions of new work by second-year students in the MFA Fine Arts program, curated by MA Curatorial Practice’s Deputy Chair Jovana Stokic.

The exhibition is on view January 18–February 1, 2014, at the SVA Chelsea Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, in New York City. Admission is free and open to the public.

Participating artists include Julia Buntaine, Donna Cleary, Elizabeth Cook, George Davis, Nadia Haji Omar, Katrin I. Jonsdottir Hjordisardottir, Rachel K. Jantzi, Jee Hee Kang, Shinyoung Kim, Yeonji Kim, Andrea McGinty, Jon Sedor, and Art Vidrine.

The SVA MFA Fine Arts program reflects the diversity of New York’s many art worlds. Together, the faculty and students form a community of established and emerging artists from many backgrounds who work across disciplines and modes of practice. The department’s main goals are to provide a stimulating and supportive environment in which students can thrive and develop as artists, to foster rigorous critical engagement with contemporary art and other cultural forms, and to produce an ongoing conversation through work as much as through words about what we make, how we make it, and why.

SVA MFA Fine Arts attracts ambitious, emerging artists from many countries and backgrounds. In their commitment to art and to one another, they provide a foundation for artistic growth that extends beyond graduation and forms an ongoing platform of professional support.
