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.
