Reception for MFA Thesis Exhibition Featured Performances and Gallery Talks

Interdisciplinary Media and Book and Paper Arts MFAs hosted a special reception of their exhibition, complete with non-stop performances, readings, tastings, and personal tours of the individual installations.


Department faculty, staff, and students celebrated in the Center for Book and Paper Arts gallery and performance spaces with special guests, including Professor Barbara Madsen (Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University) and Chicago book and installation artist Karen Hanmer. Exhibiting MFAs provided guests with individualized tours of their work, and treated the crowd to ongoing performances.


The exhibition continues until May 17, with daily performances for the duration of the show, which includes work in all of the department’s interdisciplinary areas of study: book and paper practices, performance, and media.


Upcoming special events include a panel on Community Practices in Art Making on Wednesday, May 2, and the Manifest Art Walk and reception on May 4, when the gallery will be open until 8:00 p.m.
