As we struggle to navigate life during the pandemic and the ongoing political turmoil and upheaval, we share a common purpose – to create artworks that explore our understanding of the human condition. 

How do culture, politics, history, and conflict shape our memories, act upon our bodies, and engage our creative minds? What are our responses as artists striving for greater understanding and empathy, and a more measured way forward? Where do we place ourselves in this delicate fabric of contemporary experience? 

This exhibition explores acts of violence and transgression, mediated escapism and introspective memory, displacement and vicarious nostalgia, and the ways media and art informs and structures our experiences, transforming our ways of being. These works provide a space to reflect on our cultural experiences, asking us to more deeply consider our complicity, and ultimately call us to action.

The works presented are the culminating projects from the Film and Media Arts graduate installation art course “Space, Place, Image, Sound” and thesis work completed for the MFA Film and Media Arts program.
