The MFA Gallery is a venue dedicated to the exhibition of works produced by students in the University's Master of Fine Arts program. The gallery provides MFA candidates a space for exhibiting and photographing their work as well as a professional forum for critical discourse and feedback. Self-managed and curated, the gallery, moreover, offers MFA candidates frontline experience in exhibition installation as well as the opportunity to enhance their personal show resumes. The MFA Gallery is just one example of MSU's commitment to providing the best possible facilities for its growing art and design programs.

Mina Zarfsaz

Mina Zarfsaz’ procedural installations examine the inseparable connection between bodily experience and environment. The sense of embodiment that is present in her work is a matter of being of the world, with its dynamic specificity, rather than being situated in the world.
