I am fortunate in that, post graduation, I’m getting to be a part of an MFA exhibit with some members of my cohort at Rhizome in Washington, DC.
I decided to submit my stop motion film Plasticland for this exhibit, and after installing the work, I’m really glad it did. I think the space and this work speak to each other.
From the Rhizome website:
September 3 – 24 * Exhibit open during all events and by appointment: email email@example.com * Opening event Saturday September 10 from 4-6pm
Rhizome is excited to partner with Towson University’s MFA program to present an exhibition of selected works by recent MFA graduates. The show features a range of 2D work, video, and installation. The work clearly springs forth from pandemic times and anxieties while speaking to timeless preoccupations of the ever-searching artist. The selected artists juxtapose personal searches for their particular truths with themes of transformation in natural and built environments, cycles of growth and decay, and the nature of who we are.
Featuring work by: Zachary Diaz / Erin Barry-Dutro / Claudia Cappelle / David Calkins / Jim Doran / Brianna Doyle / Grace Doyle / Jodi Hoover / Lolo Gem / Katherine Nonemaker / Aral Olgun / Andrew Thorpe / You Wu / Jen Yablonsky / Tara Youngborg
Thanks to Kanchan Balsé for curating the show from the works submitted.
