Seniors you will be installing your Thesis Exhibition the week of May 12th. YOU MUST vacate your studios by Sunday, May 18th at 5 PM. All trash must be taken to the 1st floor. The only thing that should remain in your studios is the table and flat files.

Good luck with your finals!
Have a great Summer, everyone!

And now, Hammer to Fall:

Bessma Khalaf exhibition at Gallery Four

Department — KVH @ 1:07 pm, Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Bessma Khalaf exhibition

Bessma Khalaf, California based artist, has a solo exhibition opening this Saturday at Gallery Four in the H&H Building. From their website:

Balancing mischievousness and malice, Khalaf’s processes of degradation (burning, eating, smashing, etc.) explore the boundaries of landscape, place, and image. Khalaf proposes that beyond the nihilism of destruction, voids and absences possess generative possibilities, either in nature or in her practice. Figuratively and pictorially, voids carve an ambiguous space in the representation of landscape and the documentation of performance. Entrenched in process, Khalaf mixes mysticism, futility, and endurance when pitting herself against the overwhelming vastness of her surroundings, and the largeness of the romantic landscape…

Bessma will be visiting our department as a visiting artist next week, conducting critiques along with Nick Karvounis, former Printmaking faculty.

Yes Even You
Gallery Four, H&H Bldg.
April 19th – June 7th
