Join us for Where is Where, SAIC’s AIADO and Fashion Graduate Thesis Exhibition. Showcasing design from the Departments of Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Designed Objects (AIADO) and Fashion, this exhibition brings together work by more than fifty graduate students. Through their individual approaches, they present new design solutions, situating their works within the inter-spaces of cultural and built systems. The works explore the unseen aspects of our society—many of which have been forgotten or overlooked—by reinhabiting space, challenging perceptions of interiority, and redefining values.

Curated by AIADO faculty Felicia Ferrone and Jess Giffin, 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 Interior Architecture
• Master of Design in Designed Objects
• Master of Design in Fashion, Body and Garment
• Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Fashion, Body and Garment

Participating students include Brian Anderson, Amma Aning Odum, Catherine Arreaza, David Augspurger, Mark Augustine, Josiah Ball, Jenna Boldebuck, Robyn M Carter, Ed Chen, Michele J. Crawford, Lin Dai, Racquel Davey, Valerie DeKeyser, Nathaniel Douglass, Laura Grace Gamse, Alli Gentles, Josie Gluck, Cecilia Gomez Lauria, Rebekah Ison, Eunae Jo, Janet Kang, Ana Ut Kei, Minjung Michelle Kim, Philyoung Kim (Gabrielle), Chin-Yun Lai (Sonya), Chester Lech, Youngju Lee, Chengcheng Li, Su Li, Charlie McArthur, Cynthia Meadors, Edward Meunier, Jordan Morrell, Lauren Mosakowski, Kenneth Nelson, Louise Pan, Nathan D.
