SAIC MFA Show 2013


For a second time, I was in Chicago during the exhibition of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's MFA program. Show is up until May 17th at the Sullivan Galleries.

The following pieces were the most beautiful and intriguing to me, out of hundreds of them. Mostly installation or large abstract sculpture. A few videos. Hardly any painting. This made me sad. It is always fascinating to see what comparable MFA programs to mine produce in their moment.
