The Tyler School of Art and Architecture at Temple University is pleased to share its annual MFA Thesis Exhibitions—a longstanding tradition that culminates two years of intensive artistic and critical development for the school’s Master of Fine Arts candidates.

The 2021 MFA Thesis Exhibitions showcase the work of graduate students, celebrating the breadth of Tyler’s MFA degree programs as well as the adaptability and resilience required to meet the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic to sustain their studio practices and education. The deeply moving work of this cohort finds common ground among themes of displacement, memory, and yearning for connection.

“We’ve witnessed a great deal of overlap across mediums and disciplines,” said Tyler Associate Dean Chad Curtis. “In spite of the challenges, it has been especially exciting to see the strength of our community this year—the MFAs have been offering each other ‘skill shares’ within their own fields of expertise.”

More information on the participating artists is available on the Tyler School of Art and Architecture website.

When they graduate, Tyler’s MFA Class of 2021 will join a community of distinguished alumni that includes Barbara Chase-Riboud (BFA ‘57); Hannah Wilke (BFA ‘62); Albert Paley (MFA ‘69); Moe Brooker (BFA ’70, MFA ‘72); Dennis Adams (MFA ‘71); Laurie Simmons (BFA ‘71); Allan Edmunds (BFA ’71, MFA ‘75); Martha Jackson Jarvis (BFA ‘75); Polly Apfelbaum (BFA ‘78); Jean Foos (MFA ‘78); Edgar Heap of Birds (MFA ‘79); Harriete Estel Berman (MFA ’80); Lisa Yuskavage (BFA ‘84); Lisa Sigal (BFA ‘85); Angela Dufresne (MFA ‘89); Anoka Faruqee (MFA ‘97); Trenton Doyle Hancock (MFA ‘00); William Villalongo (MFA ‘01); Jennifer Packer (BFA ‘07); Doreen Garner (BFA ‘09); Erin Riley (MFA ‘09); Amber Cowan (MFA ‘11); Kara Springer (MFA ’17); Ayana Evans (MFA ‘00); and Jeffrey Meris (BFA ‘15), among others.
