M.F.A. in Studio Art Thesis Exhibition

chilingiri_MFAST_1The summer thesis exhibition for the M.F.A. in Studio Art (MFAST) program will feature the work of 10 graduating artists from this unique low-residency program. Designed to expand understanding of contemporary art through research-based studio practice, this interdisciplinary program consists of four intensive six-week summer residencies combined with independent work during the academic year.

MultiEthnicAreas of concentration include the full range of contemporary art practices. Although the program promotes interdisciplinary approaches to art production, students are encouraged to work in ways most appropriate to their individual research. The exhibition will include combinations of drawing, film, installation, painting, performance, photography, sculpture, sound and video.
