Download thePennMFA Program Catalog

The Penn MFA program presents the 2014 thesis exhibition in Vienna, Austria. The exhibition is the culmination of a six-month exchange between the graduate students and curator Roland Schoeny. During their residency in Vienna, the students will install selected works, visit artists’ studios, and complete their engagement in this highly experimental exhibition project.

The thesis exhibition project acknowledges that emerging artists work from a globalized state of culture and respond to a new perception of site specificity. The exhibition presents work impacted by a collective discussion on the premise that travel, cultural exchange and the examination of cultural relativism are all markers of a profound evolution in our vision of the world.
