Students, News, Announcements | December 15, 2023

MFA Thesis Show Exhibition

Each of the eight solo exhibitions by second-year MFA candidates includes an artist reception. 

Otis College’s second-year MFA Fine Arts candidates will exhibit their thesis shows from January through May in the Bolsky Gallery on campus, after which the exhibitions will be available for online viewing in virtual galleries. New shows are installed throughout the Spring semester, and students are available to discuss their work during in-person receptions held during their respective exhibitions. Find a full schedule below.

The MFA Fine Arts program at Otis is open, inclusive, and interdisciplinary, composed of advanced artists who are engaged and committed to exploring an art practice in its various forms, traditions, and contexts. The students have 24-hour access to work in their individual on-campus studios. The thesis shows culminate the students’ public exhibition of their work, following Annual Open Studios and a Mid-Residency Show, all of which take place over the course of the two-year program. 

Below is the list of the students and their public exhibition and reception dates. Check the calendar of events for more information about the thesis exhibitions, and visit the MFA Fine Arts section of Otis’s website for more information about the program.
