Santa Barbara, CA
We like to think of treks and stories in neat frames of starts and middles and ends, but life insists on a more fluid, continuous and interconnected messiness. What is to come has already started, what just ended has already spawned multiple beginnings.
The works in this show, a strikingly diverse collection of approaches and interests realized in an equally broad range of methods and media, form the selected output of the six UCSB graduate students about to conclude their Master of Fine Arts studies. It is at once the carefully edited product of the research they are concluding, a current snapshot of where they now stand, and just possibly a glimpse of their future.
