Interpolation

interpolation

March 2 – 20, 2015
Reception: Thursday, March 5, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.; gallery lobby.
Curated by Krista Clark, Meta Gary and Tori Tinsley

To interpolate is to introduce new matter between other things or parts; to interject or alter that which already exists. As the title suggests, this exhibition highlights new connections created between the first and last days of matriculation. On exhibit are works created by first and second year MFA students pursuing degrees in Ceramics, Drawing & Painting, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Photography, and Sculpture.

Graduate students show works that serve as physical markers of these in-between spaces. Some find similar objects from different sources and bring them together to create new meanings. Others create arrangements of found and new materials to identify, illuminate, or deny relationships that may or may not contain significance. These works exemplify the new points created between known things or parts.

This exhibition also explores the ways these artists are inserting themselves into the Atlanta art community and in what ways they are addressing the greater context of art history. By introducing their work into the ever-changing conversation of art, how are they shaping it and in what ways is it shaping them? We hope this exhibition provides some answers to these questions and serves as a forecast of the work to come.
