ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
This exhibition examines the importance of medium to the thesis of an artwork. Featuring current students and alumni of the Lesley University MFA in Visual Arts program, these works address ideas such as the importance of process, challenging the definition of a medium, re-contextualizing imagery across disciplines, modern interpretations of historical art forms, and many more. Often humorous, sobering, or ironic, this thought-provoking work highlights the interdisciplinary aspect of the program, creating a dialogue relevant to the contemporary arts discourse.
