IN THE MIX: A Juried Exhibition from
First Friday Reception November 6, 6-9 pm
Free and open to the public
In the Mix is a group exhibition of student artists in the Western New York region, juried from interdisciplinary perspective. An open call invited graduate and undergraduate students to submit samples of their work in any media for consideration.
Of the over 200 works of art submitted, the exhibition will feature the work of 34 student artists in a variety of media including drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, fiber, sculpture, design and video. With students from Alfred University, Cornell University, Concordia University, Rochester Institute of Technology, Syracuse University, the State University of New York at Buffalo and the University of Rochester, the exhibition itself will represent a sample of current work emerging out of the region’s art programs.
About the Jurors:
Timothy Engström is Professor of Philosophy in the College of Liberal Arts at Rochester Institute of Technology. Passionate about literature and philosophical discourse, Professor Engström’s interest in art comes from a deep curiosity for how contemporary technologies shape the philosophy of imaging, which frequently overlaps with contemporary art discourse.
Karin Grundström is Senior Lecturer of Architecture & Urban Studies at Malmö University in Sweden. Her research is centered on urban fragmentation, sustainable cities, energy efficiency and urban climatic design. Concerned with more than structures and their aesthetics, Grundström focuses her efforts to improve lifestyle, maneuverability and the daily experience of citizens in the urban landscape.
Both jurors are key figures in the RIT/Malmö partnership, which seeks to join efforts in collaborative media, sustainability, and cultural production.
