2020 Art and Art History MFA Thesis Exhibition

The 2020 Art and Art History MFA Thesis Exhibition features the works of MFA candidates in Columbia’s Interdisciplinary Arts and Media and Interdisciplinary Book and Paper Arts programs. The exhibition, which includes artists’ books, prints, drawings, textiles, sculptures, photography, sound, projections, and installation works, represents the culmination of three plus years’ worth of development of a cohesive body of work for each artist. This exhibition, scheduled to take place at the Glass Curtain Gallery has been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. In response the Department of Exhibitions, Performance, and Student Spaces (DEPS) has created Artist Profile Series intends to give you an in-depth look at the work to come as well as a deep glimpse into the artists process.

Participating artists include:
Julia Arrendondo, Mary Gring, Rebecca Grace Hill, Selena Ingram, Maria VanDyken Li,
