2017 MFA Biennial
November 30, 2017 — March 18, 2018
Opening on November 28, 2018, The Delaware Contemporary will host its 2017 MFA Biennial in the Carole Bieber and Marc Ham Gallery. This exhibition showcases artwork by current regional Master of Fine Arts candidates who strive to create new and challenging work while honing their craft. This bi-annual exhibition exemplifies contemporary vision of artists as they emerge into the art world.
This year’s biennial, DOMESTIC, includes Ashton Bird, Caroline Hatfield, Courtney Ryan, Hector Rene, Kimberly English, Natalie Hutchings, Sam Whalen, and Taryn Pizza.Their work explores the physical, visceral sensory experience that dissects the white-picket-fence standard of the American Dream. Together, these artists investigate domesticity and the material clutter with which it’s built. They seek individually to reuse, repurpose, rebuild, and redefine personal experience in a larger cultural landscape, and point to the human potential for grotesque, and sometimes abusive, relationship to stuff.
