2017 Art and Art History Grad Exhibitions | VERGE

Congratulations to the 2017 Art and Art History graduating class on their thesis exhibition, Verge. The word verge refers to a state of transition, and can simultaneously mean a border, an edge, or an approach to a boundary. The graduating artists in this exhibition are, likewise, transitioning into new opportunities and experiences, as well as fluctuating between cultural discourses that affect understandings of the self. Their works explore the boundaries experienced between endings and beginnings, the past and the future, the self and the other. Read More

2016 Art and Art History Grad Exhibitions | FAQ

2016 Art & Art History Graduates with Program Faculty

Congratulations to the 2016 Art & Art History Graduates who unveiled their thesis projects at the Blackwood Gallery of UTM. Contrary to what the title of the exhibition may suggest, the artists of FAQ explored the position of art not solely as an exchange of question and answer, but as an opportunity for hypothesizing. Many of these artists investigate ideas of the cyclical and the entangled, emphasizing the futility of linear questioning. Throughout the breadth of their academic careers, these artists have continually revisited and re-examined a multitude of questions: questions of place, questions of material, and questions of self. What are constructions of personal identity? How are attachments formed to place? How are we affected by art? And of utmost importance, what art do we choose to make? Using acquired skills of visual construction and media creation, the featured artists bring dialogues of probing, process, and proposition into existence.
