– SVA 2019 MFA THESIS EXHIBITION Now That's What I Call Love!

Rodríguez, Ahree Song, Zachary Thompson, Wushuang Tong, Megan E. Wirick, and Heming Zhang. Taking inspiration from the iconic musical compilations, Now That’s What I Call Love! proposes the 2019 SVA MFA Visual Arts Thesis exhibition as a mixtape, a collection of love songs by wildly diverse artists working with unique forms, approaches, and emotional undertones. Among the most pronounced interests of this class are the desire for connection, tenderness, and mutual understanding; and conversely, alienation, distancing, and miscommunication. Some artworks included are earnest about their affections, demonstrating a love of materiality and form, geography, or personal history. Some are more skeptical, discussing the traps of seduction, the tenuousness of meaning, and the necessary distance criticality can provide in preventing us from over-associating with images. Yet others propose ways of using art to create communities around empathy and shared experience. Approaching art and art-making within the framework of love is a good way to orient the inheritance of an art education: toward one’s sense of what is important and within a community that can help to contextualize it. The exhibition is located at DCTV, 87 Lafayette Street in Chinatown, NY, and will run from May 17 - 26, 2019. Please join us for an opening reception on May 17 from 6-9pm, and a closing reception and party on May 26 from 7-11pm. In addition to these will be a series of events developed and hosted by the 2019 cohort over the course of the exhibition.
