UNCHARTED: the 2011 MFA Thesis Exhibition
The New York Academy of Art is pleased to present UNCHARTED, a group exhibition featuring original paintings, drawings, sculpture and prints by sixty talented emerging artists.
Immersed for two years in an intensive learning environment that combines rigorous skills and conceptual training, these MFA candidates are using a time-honored artistic language from which they are creating innumerable distinct dialects. The 2011 graduates of the New York Academy of Art reveal that they are sixty individuals striding sure-footed onto an entirely contemporary landscape.
A catalog will be available, featuring an essay by renowned art critic and Academy Senior Critic Donald Kuspit. The title for the exhibition was suggested by MFA candidate Emily Adams. (Emily is also a guest-writer on this blog! Use the SEARCH bar, left, to see her other posts about her thesis artwork. RSVP to our event on the Academy's page on facebook.)
The exhibition is free and open daily from Noon – 7pm, (closed May 20)
May 17 - May 27, 2011
Opening: Monday, May 16, 6 - 8 PM
