Join us for Tele Vision, SAIC’s AIADO and Fashion Graduate Exhibition. Showcasing design from the Department of Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Designed Objects (AIADO) and Fashion, this exhibition brings together work by 45 graduate students. Through their individual approaches, these graduates demonstrate their ability to skillfully use media as an instance of critical examination of ideas, people, and culture. Like TV images, their proposals end just beyond the frame. Each functions as a pilot episode, a stand-alone prototype written as the first of a series, a premiere with an eye toward the finale.

Curated and designed by SAIC faculty member and architect Odile Compagnon with fellow faculty member Lisa Smith and Caroline Linder, who are partners in the design brand ODLCO and SAIC alumni (MDes 2008), the exhibition features work from the following programs at SAIC:

• Master of Architecture
• Master of Architecture with an Emphasis in Interior Architecture
• Master of Fine Arts in Studio, Design for Emerging Technologies
• Master of Fine Arts in Studio, Designed Objects
• Master of Fine Arts in Studio, Interior Architecture
• Master of Design in Designed Objects
• Master of Design in Fashion, Body and Garment

Participating students in Tele Vision include Sepideh Abtahi, Brian Bailey, Laurel Bancroft, Kuan Wen Chiu, Tara Churchill, David Coddington, Christopher Coffin, Alexandra Copan, Laura Crane, Michael Egan, Annette Elliot, David Evancho, Nancy Fleischman, Shelley Getzendanner, Abby Groff, Kristen Hansen, Michaela Hansen, Sunwha Her, Julie Hess, Zachary Hoffman, David Hull, Brooke Ingram, Kristina Januskaite-Sparks, Daniel Jick, Dina Khodorkovskaya, Siavash Khorrami, AnNa Kim, Judith Lambotte, Justin LeBlanc, Chong Lee, Andrés López, Jyoti Mahil-Shah, John Manaves, Melinda McAra, Meghan Quinn, Mig Rod, Catherine Rogg, Carlos Ruiz, Natalie Schelew, Francoise Schmid, Amy Sedivi, Chi Sun, KC Winter, Tyler Yager, and Jing Yuan.
