Appositions features work by the 2020 graduates of the studio arts M.F.A. program in the College of Visual and Performing Arts’ School of Art. As a cohort, the eight artists have worked side-by-side for the past three years and have a deep engagement with their materials and a strong sense of artistic process. Shared interests in assembly, accumulation, and meditation run through each artist’s work, especially in the quiet constructions of Darcie Brown, Charles Hickey, and Eric Mowen. The body, memory, and an interest in understanding their interdependence can be found in the work of Brandy Boden, Devon Gelhar and Katie Shulman, while Franco Andres and Stephen Farrell create fantastical narratives and realities. Each artist in Appositions uses their life experiences as a foundation for their practice and as their way to inspire a more sustainable and hopeful world.
