Artist-Led Tour of “Myth & Memory: Selected Works by the MFA Class of 2022”

April 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join the 2022 Master of Fine Arts students for a special walk-through! This tour will be led by all five MFA candidates and introduced by exhibition curator Laura Ritchie.

Through the work of five artists, Myth & Memory imagines a future in which the margins become the center. Drawing from personal narrative, each of the artists engages a vocabulary of fantasy to make visible the stories that have been forgotten, obscured, or erased by white heteropatriarchal modes of dominance. Their work interrogates practices of history-making and history-keeping at the individual, institutional, and systemic level. Intimate gestures and acts of subversion reframe the lens through which memory is archived and myth is defined. As a result, new stories emerge from a restructured past.
