The Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College (Bard MFA) presents Off Site: the class of 2025 thesis exhibition, which brings together the culminating work of third-year MFA candidates in the disciplines moving image, music/sound, painting, photography, sculpture, and writing. This year, the exhibition will be split between two galleries in Hudson, NY: Basilica Hudson and Time & Space Limited (TSL). The show is curated by Mary Fellios.

The opening weekend of events will begin with a catered reception from 7–8pm to open the Music/Sound student performances at Basilica Hudson on Thursday, July 11, 8–11pm, as part of Basilica’s Jupiter Nights, a series of summer performances. Thesis projects in various disciplines will be on view in the galleries at Basilica Hudson and Time & Space Limited, opening on Friday, July 12 with an opening reception, 5–8pm held concurrently at both locations. Film screenings and readings will be presented at Time & Space Limited on Saturday, July 13, 1–4pm, followed by a reception from 4–6pm. The TSL galleries will be open during the reception. The gallery exhibitions will be on view through Sunday, July 21.

Off Site presents the work of Bard’s MFA Class of 2025. The title references the nature of this year’s exhibition as both a logistical reality and resilient methodology in which art activates pathways between malleable pasts and potential futures. Off Site marks a new era of openness for the program as this is the first Thesis Exhibition to occur off-campus. It is staged across two venues in Hudson, New York: Time & Space Limited and Basilica Hudson.

Disruptions around the source of the authorial voice; the destabilization of boundaries separating real and artificial space; and forms of perceptual mapping are among the concerns that spark connections between the works on view. Off Site showcases nineteen artists working across a variety of mediums—from painting to sound installation—alongside two nights of performances.

Mary Fellios is a curator who received their MA in Curatorial Studies from Bard CCS. They have completed research and worked on programs with Textile Arts Center (New York City, New York), Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (San Diego, California), Brooklyn Museum (New York City, New York), Performa (New York City, New York), and Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (Troy, New York).
