Currently on view at the Stanford Art Gallery, “We’re Not in the Business of Warehousing Paper” is an MFA thesis exhibition showcasing works from five art practice MFA students: Einat Imber, Christopher Nickel, Felicita Norris, Daniela Rossell, and Lauren Ashley Toomer. The exhibition is a melting pot, featuring ideas across different forms and media to address issues ranging from global communications to psychological boundaries. Process-wise, the works focus particularly on the materiality and texture of cloth, paper and other such surfaces. The aesthetic of the exhibit is as much about materials as it is about the drawings and paintings themselves.
“Hi5,” an annual group exhibition featuring the work of first-year MFA students in art practice, investigates the overlap between the arts and the sciences. The pieces on display, which include work by Masako Miyazaki, Simona Fitcal, Ashley Valmere Fischer, Justin Wood and Cy Keener, experiment with form and sound to explore humanity and the natural world.
