The 2013 Master of Fine Arts Thesis exhibitions, of which Diegesis is the first, take place in the Logan Center Gallery, with some of the artists works extending into the building of the Logan Center and beyond to other locations on The University of Chicago’s campus. The works of these artists encompass a wide array of artistic positions while sharing a keen engagement in contemporary culture and history.

The Department of Visual Arts at the University of Chicago is committed to advancing theory and practice as a unified and sustainable investigation. Located within an internationally recognized research institution, the department fosters both multi-disciplinary and focused visual studies that engage our contemporary world with meaningful questions. History, social thought, philosophy, and aesthetics in and outside the field of artistic practice are important to artists. We work to investigate the world as it is, and imagine the world as it could be.
