Variations of a Whole
A group exhibition of work from Otis Graduate and Undergraduate students

Opening Reception Saturday June 28, 4-6pm
With live music by The Small Steps, and a stencil workshop with Carol Zou celebrating Rosa Parks and transit-based activism

Artists in the exhibition: William Jon Bengtson (BFA Fine Arts), Alexia E. Bernal (BFA Fine Arts), Corinne Bernard (BFA Fine Arts), Derek Corns (BFA Fine Arts), Sean Cully (MFA Fine Arts), Janet E. Dandridge (MFA Fine Arts), Víctor Albarracín Llanos (MFA Public Practice), Laura Lindlief (BFA Fine Arts), Chelsea McCarthy (BFA Fine Arts), Angelica Sanchez (BFA Fine Arts), Yasmin Than (MFA Fine Arts), Rachel Wolfe (MFA Fine Arts), Carol Zou (MFA Public Practice)

Art school is a place where freedom of thought and self-expression flourish, where up-and-coming artists are given an opportunity to restructure codes and belief systems into their own culture. Variations of a Whole, curated by Otis alumna Jeseca Dawson (’12 Graduate Public Practice), combines the work of thirteen artists from both undergraduate and graduate programs in Fine Arts and Public Practice. The work is evidence of the students' exploration of ideas and materials, as well as their desire to manifest meaningful forms of self-expression.  It exemplifies artists in the process of finding their own voice as they investigate identity, experimentation, social responsibility, art theory and the tension between human and natural production.
