The Department of Visual Arts presents one of four MFA exhibitions in 2012 featuring Saul Applebaum, Rachel Ellison, and Clare Rosean.
This inaugural series of MFA Exhibitions at the Logan Center Gallery featured work that encompassed a wide array of artistic practices and genres; at once keenly in-tune with the field of contemporary art and informed by a broad understanding of art history and culture.
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 of considerable influence on thinking artists. This approach investigates the world as it is, and imagines the world as it could be.
