Beauty and Resistance
Art & Art History Senior Exhibition

April 27 - May 20, 2018

Alexandra Brazo, untitled archival pigment print, 2018


No individual theme or central concept was given to the thirteen student artists prior to this year’s annual senior exhibition. Each artist was free to explore his or her own interests in any medium. However, after numerous discussions and critiques, the overarching concepts of beauty and resistance emerged. Some artists focused on notions of beauty from history, while others investigated concepts of beauty in culture today, sometimes embracing or questioning these notions. For other artists, resistance was a key issue, addressing it at times in overt and challenging ways, and at other times using subtler and more subversive methods. Often, both beauty and resistance are present in a single piece, without valuing one over the other.

This exhibition represents a key component of the capstone course in which art & art history majors with a concentration in studio art explore practical and conceptual aspects of becoming an artist. Students are involved in each step of the exhibition process, including exhibition design and planning, installation, publicity, and documentation.
