Exhibition Offers Students, Public New Experiences

February 21, 2012

MIAD’s most experimental exhibition, “New Exchanges: Evolving Visual Ideas and Forms,” is offering students across the college’s disciplines the opportunity to forge a public dialogue on art and design and the critical thinking it promotes. Do you see your student?

From Integrated Studio Arts, to Interior Architecture & Design, Sculpture to Communication Design, and beyond, the exhibition is bringing the public into MIAD classes and critiques, while providing students across all years additional perspectives on the work they create and how it is discussed.

Read more about New Exchanges, and upcoming gallery talks and critiques, at www.miad.edu.

Read art critic/reporter Peggy Sue Dunigan’s insightful review of the first critique.

In the image below, foreground, Professor Jason S. Yi, whose class Integration & Intersection II is meeting in the gallery for the length of the exhibition, talks with a student about her work.

In the background, Ethan Lasser, curator of the Chipstone Foundation, critiques the work of Professor Jill Sebastian’s Advanced Sculpture Studio class, which took on the challenge of creating art with only one tool. Their project was based on the “Tool at Hand” exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Museum, which they visited, and through which the Chipstone Foundation challenged area artists to make art with one tool.
