Join Root Division this March for MFA Revisited; a re-working of our classic biennial MFA Now exhibition. Through this exhibition we aim to provide space and bolster support for the work and growth of 18 artists who graduated from their MFA programs in 2020. Throughout its history, MFA Now has sought to showcase work produced by Bay Area MFA candidates as a way to promote and archive current art-making practices and models. This year is different of course, and our seventh iteration of the show finds us adapting to changing times. With an international pandemic collapsing the final year of learning for many MFA students, thesis exhibitions sequestered online, the re-imagining of arts institutions, and increased unsteadiness within academic spaces—we are presenting MFA Revisited.
Juried by Aay Preston-Myint, the exhibition features a dynamic survey of interdisciplinary works, as well as the promotion of each artist applicant through a comprehensive Archive Catalogue Project. We hope you will join us in celebrating this class of 2020.
ABOUT THE MFA Revisited ARCHIVE PROJECT:
The MFA Revisited Archive is an inclusive publication of all eligible 2020 MFA graduates set to be released in March 2021. All artists who submit to the MFA Revisited exhibition will be featured in this archive. The book includes a full page dedicated to each contributing MFA graduate and a compilation of essays by faculty, Root Division staff, and the exhibition juror. The archive serves to navigate the contemporary moment in Bay Area MFA programs and to find connections between artists and institutions – even in the midst of a turbulent year.
