Loose Associations | BFA Thesis Exhibition 2014


May 26–June 28, 2014 | Littman + White Galleries

Reception: Thursday, June 5, 2014 | 4–7pm

The School of Art and Design Art Practices BFA Program 2013-14 presents Loose Associations, the thesis exhibition of its thirteen graduating students. Their diverse practices incorporate painting, sculpture, drawing, video, installation, photography, print and digital media, representing the full breath of the program. Loose Associations is exhibited across PSU’s campus art galleries and is open to the public.

The A+D BFA Program at PSU is designed to provide a selected group of Art Practices students with one last year of specialized studies before graduation. The program is intended to complement the Art Practices BA/BS tracks and to further develop, across disciplines, an open dialog about contemporary art, its practices and its cultural implications. Upon admission, the selected students need to commit to an intensive one-year residency, to conduct research, to practice, to construct and to discuss a cohesive body of work, in part to be presented as a public exhibition at the end of the program. These exhibitions represent a documentation of that experience and highlight some of its varied manifestations.
