On view through August 26, 2012 in the MFA's Courtyard Gallery, the 2012 Students Curate Students exhibition, "Topographies of Space: Between Somewhere and Nowhere," features five artists who explore the contemporary landscape, both real and imagined: its stillness and constantly changing nature, the mark of lives lived, and ultimately, the relationship of humans with environment.
For centuries the subject of "landscape" has offered artists endless possibilities for interpretation. The works presented here are at once investigations of actual physical space, psychological space, and the space of memory and fantasy. The works in this exhibition provide an opportunity to reconsider the topography of the space in which we live. Selected from a range of curatorial proposals, this exhibition is co-curated by SMFA graduate students Laura Fischman and Heidi Hogden.
Participating artists: Madeleine Ahlborn (BFA), Laura Fischman (MFA), Heidi Hogden (MFA), Chien-Ning Liao (MFA) and Maia Lynch (MFA).
Artists Talk: Wednesday, May 2, 67 pm
