SUArt Galleries Presents ‘Neither Confirmed Nor Denied: MFA 2015’
The Syracuse University Art Galleries has announced the opening of “Neither Confirmed nor Denied: MFA 2015.” The annual master of fine arts exhibition features 17 artists from the College of Visual and Performing Arts. This year’s presenting artists are working in a variety of traditional and multidisciplinary media, including new installations of photography, printmaking, painting, sculpture, ceramics and site-specific experiences.
“The work illustrates a contemporary sentiment among artists that moves beyond the traditional labels of painter, printmaker or sculptor,” explains Andrew Saluti, SUArt Galleries Assistant Director and faculty advisor for the exhibition. “These artists create experiences and installations that cross boundaries of art-making and push the envelope of how we define what art is.”
The exhibition will run April 2-May 10 in the Shaffer Art Building. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; and Thursdays 11 a.m.-8 p.m. The SUArt Galleries will host a free opening reception from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, April 9. Patrons are welcome to view the exhibition until the gallery closes at 8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.
Select programming associated with the exhibition includes a Lunchtime Lecture with Saluti, on Wednesday, April 15, beginning at 12:15 p.m. The exhibition and programs are free and open to the public.
