SUMMER SALON 2008
Featuring the work of ten Master of Fine Arts Studio Art candidates curated by two Art History graduate students, all from the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Texas at Austin
June 28 - August 30, 2008
Summer Salon exhibits a refreshing variety of artworks by studio graduate students in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Texas at Austin. In true salon style, the exhibition establishes a flexible framework for artists to present their diverse techniques and thematic concerns. Working in the media of painting, photography, sculpture, and video, ten artists offer a mix of perspectives to create a unique artistic dialogue. These artists express themes of representation, landscape, industry, materiality, and time; in collaboration their artworks reveal meaningful differences among subtle yet indicative connections. Ranging from expressive portraiture to conceptual narratives, the works in this exhibition share the conceptual undertones of spatial relationships and material identity. The artists thus contribute to a broad pattern while their individual styles appear in striking contrast.
CURATORS/ARTISTS: Summer Salon is curated by Art History Graduate Students Vanessa Garcia and Rose Salseda-Gomez with special assistance by Thao Vo. Artists include Studio Art Graduate Students Alec Appl, Jonathan Aseron, Sonya Berg, Samuel Dahl, Santiago Forero, Felice House, Daniel Lane, Tahila Mintz, Cecelia Phillips, and Joseph Winchester.
