"Call and Response" A University of Utah MFA Interim Exhibition

Presented by University of Utah MFA Club at Studio Elevn

Press Release

Call and Response is an art exhibition open for two days at Studio Elevn, featuring artwork by University of Utah Art & Art History Master of Fine Arts (MFA) candidates. Through the use of various materials and methods, these six artists explore avenues for understanding our cultural phenomena. Our current cultural, environmental, and social environments are the call, and these artists’ work is the response.

Dana Hansen uses virtual reality in his work to question what we perceive. Kate Wingard seeks to distort communication, focusing on intimacy and vulnerability by means of video installation and sculpture. Josh Graham incorporates 2-D and 3-D elements into an installation that highlights the consequences of becoming disconnected from the natural environment. Kylie Millward uses animated gifs, screen-printing, and illustrations as a means of responding to ideas of addiction and female gender roles. Through photography and printmaking, Etsuko Hansen aims to sift through her identity. Nolan Flynn challenges the concept of painting by questioning the weight of ideas and looking at the difference between the sentimental and the naive.

In a changing cultural climate, these artists delve into concerns both personal and global by embracing the power of art as a tool for experiential understanding. Please join Dana, Kate, Josh, Kylie, Etsuko, and Nolan January 18th and 19th, 2019 for the Call and Response art exhibit. The show will open Friday, January 18th, during Gallery Stroll, at Studio Eleven, 435 W 400 S, #304 from 5-10pm. Along with the artwork, please enjoy catering by Caputos Italian Deli. The gallery will be open for a second day on Saturday, January 19th from 11am-9pm.
