SMFA MFA Thesis Show: t(here)

May 14 – May 20, 2018
SMFA MFA Thesis Show: t(here)

t(here) is an exhibition celebrating the work of 42 graduating master of fine arts students from the School of The Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts. t(here) represents the collapse of "here" and "there" into one unified paradigm. The artists see our globalized world as both "here" and there; that problems of the past are the problems of today.  It acknowledges that the contemporary moment is a synthesis of the mainstream and the periphery, theory and experience, history and future. This work is the capstone of their two years of working closely with SMFA at Tufts' faculty to develop their vision and shape the future of their careers as working artists.

t(here) features the work of MFA students: Jeehyon Ahn, Thomas Amundson, Ariel Baez, Kim Barnes, Sam Belisle, Teddy Benfield, Evan Blackwell, Eli Brown, Krystle Brown, Si Chen, Fredo Conde, Laurence Cuelenaere, Kathy Gearon, Kassandra Grob, Hui Huang, Jamie Kay, Moon Hee Kim, Soojin Kim, Ching Sheng Lai, Niki Li, Ziwei Li, Wenyen Lo, Dave MacDonald, Katie Lee Mansfield, Antigoni Papadopoulou-Theocharaki, Sofia Plater, Alyssa Pomfrey, Kristen Powell, Marnae Rathke, Cal Rice, Laidy Sainz, Jacob Scaub, Keegan Shiner, Brook Stewart, Sarah Teft, Kenson Truong, Ardea Turston-Shaine, Elly Vadseth, Nohelia Vargas, Grace Vujeong, Yuting Weng, Cynthia Zang.
