The Unforeseen

“The Unforeseen” features a diverse variety of media including video, site-specific installations, fiber art, painting, and relational works that rely on participation from the audience. The show’s title refers in part to the unexpected leaps and risks the young artists took as they developed their work into more focused and succinct renditions.

“Nothing on view in this exhibition is quite what was planned at the outset, and in some cases is radically different from the artist’s initial vision,” wrote studio art professors Benjamin Bellas and Heather Harvey in the exhibition catalogue. “From our point of view, nothing could be more exciting or gratifying then to see students find interesting, innovative methods, let go of previous iterations, and make their work ever more complicated and unexpected.”
