2018 Master of Fine Arts Exhibition

Eli & Edythe Broad Art Museum

March 17-April 8, 2018

Exhibition Reception April 8, 6-8PM

 

The 2018 Master of Fine Arts Exhibition marks the culmination of a
three-year degree program that emphasizes extensive creative exploration under the supervision of a faculty guidance committee. Focused study in an area of concentration, as well as coursework in art history and related fields helps each artist situate their work within the larger discourse that characterizes the practice of art today. The creative research of Jazzmyn Barbosa, Laura Baszynski, and Liz Luna stand as evidence of achievement and promise.

This year the annual Master of Fine Arts Prize will be awarded to an outstanding candidate by guest juror Nabila Abdel Nadi, Assistant Curator at The Power Plant, Toronto, ON.

The 2018 Master of Fine Arts Exhibition is organized by the MSU Department of Art, Art History, and Design and the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum (MSU Broad), with curatorial oversight by Georgia Erger, Curatorial Assistant. Support for this exhibition is provided by The Graduate School at MSU and the John and Susan Berding Family Endowment.

Decoloniality and Indigenous Environmental Philosophy Through the Land
In this talk, I will articulate what I see as the interwoven threads of the nature and the power of coloniality in the attempted obscuring of being-in-the-land and being-from-the-land. It is the imaginary conception of being as a delocalized or kinless conqueror by which European locality can conceptualize an uprooting of itself and a replanting into Indigenous land–land that has also been reimagined as mere land rather than as the fundamental ontological capacity of kinship itself. Regrounding concepts of knowledge, being, morality, and even sovereignty in land, understood as the fundamental ontological capacity of kinship, disrupts some of the fundamental force of coloniality and opens a space for conceptualizing an environmental philosophy that mirrors existing Indigenous environmental concepts and practices.
Feminisms, Genders, Sexualities
Apr 6 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Feminisms, Genders, Sexualities

This workshop aims to create a collaborative space in which we will discuss feminist, queer, and transgender approaches to literature and culture. This year, we will act as reading group, publication workshop, and pedagogy/praxis collective. As we interrogate the ways that differences of gender and sexuality are imagined and used to create meaning, whether oppressive or liberatory, we will consider how these differences intersect with those of class, race, ethnicity, ability, and nationality. Some questions that shall guide our reflections on our research, teaching, and praxis include the following: How are constructions of gender and sexuality used to sustain white supremacy, a patriarchal and racist set of beliefs and institutions? How are they used to drive neoliberalism, with its economization of all domains of life? And, crucially, what are the possibilities for resisting these historical processes to create more inclusive, democratic worlds? We invite interested graduate students and faculty to participate.

Friday, April 6, 4:00 – 6:00 pm 110 Chittenden Hall: Guest Lecture by Professor Gayle Rubin (Associate Professor, Anthropology and Women’s Studies, University of Michigan)
