To prepare for the setup of Unveiled, the BFAs used large panels in the classroom to represent the walls of the gallery. By manipulating these panels within the room, they formulated a way to display all thirteen artists in the show. In this way, the BFAs functioned as an artist-run initiative. “There actually are a lot of artist initiatives out there…,” said Professor Arpad-Cotta. “In the department…we felt [that] it was a really important experience for the class to have as they finish [their BFAs].” The group exhibition involves a range of various media that includes photography, painting, sculpture, and video. Through these media, they will exhibit their own individual themes at a space that, ironically, was once used for the administration of a school – an appropriate historical context for the BFAs’ Unveiled.
In Professor Arpad-Cotta’s BFA Thesis 2 class, there are seven students who expect to graduate this Fall 2013 semester. The Department of Art + Art History congratulates the following BFAs:
Kevin Berriz Ashley Garner Roma Ingrid James Adria Llerena Felipe Melendrez Arielle Parks Jorge Sanchez
The opening reception for Unveiled by Professor Tori Arpad-Cotta’s BFA Thesis 2 students will be on Saturday, November 9 at 7PM, at Swampspace: 150 NE 42 Street, Miami, Florida (located in the Miami Design District).
