LIFESPAN: 2023 MFA Exhibition

Traci Reynolds, The Body Must Bear No Trace, 2023, 72″x84″


Lifespan is an exhibition of recent work from MFA candidates in Mason’s School of Art. Rather than an endpoint, this exhibition is a moment in the ongoing process of artistic and scholarly investigation: some of the artworks featured here were created during the past semester, some earlier in the year, and some are new iterations of revised ideas. Featuring a diverse range of practices and media including drawing, sculpture, papermaking, graphic design, and experimental video, Lifespan bring these works out of the studios and classroom, seeing how they resonate in a new space. Memories are untethered and rebound, bodies are undone and reconstructed, and stories are unmade and retold. 

Lifespan will be on view in Fenwick Gallery from Wednesday, December 6—Friday, January 26, 2024.
