The College of the Arts and Department of Art and Design are proud to present the MFA Studio Art Thesis Show, a culminating exhibition featuring works produced by students graduating from the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Studio Arts program, at 515 West 20th Street, 3N, New York NY 10011, from May 8–14th, 2018. An Opening Reception will take place on May 8 from 6–8 p.m. 

The exhibition is curated by Isin Onol, the MFA program’s 2017-18 visiting critic, and assistant professor Chelsea Knight.

Says Isin Onolo of the show, "The exhibition “Fragility of _kin”— the title having been chosen by the artists themselves—brings together selected works by eleven emerging artists: This year’s MFA graduates from Montclair State University. Independent from one another and yet mutually interlinked, each artist takes a self-reflexive, self-referential position and focuses on their singular journeys, pasts, and memories. One’s own history can be the safest place to take shelter in, but may also become the most fragile point of reference, since departing from it requires nothing less than revealing, analyzing, and critiquing the self. "

The Thesis Show features the following artists: 

 

  • Amira Ahmad
  • Afsane Barati
  • Tracy DiTolla
  • Nadia Liz Estela
  • Kevin Kolankowski
  • Alexandra Lucca
  • Imani Richardson
