SoCal MFA Annual Juried Exhibition

 

Exhibition Details

In conjunction with The Millard Sheets Art Center, Claremont Graduate University (CGU) is looking forward to hosting a wide variety of different artistic disciplines along with an elegant opening reception. This is the fifth annual Southern California MFA Exhibition open to all Southern California MFA Studio Art students with an address in California. Initially founded by California State University Fullerton, it has been organized and curated by CGU MFA students for the last three years.  It is an exhibition for MFA students, organized by MFA students.

 

Devin Troy Strother is the 2020 guest juror.  Strother is an American artist based in New York and is known for his intricate alternate narratives in a variety of mediums (mixed media, sculpture, neon, and installation).  He finds inspiration in snippets of overheard conversations, movies, television, music, stand-up comedy podcasts, and the work of numerous canonic artists such as Joseph Cornell, Marcel Duchamp, and Henri Matisse (whose cutouts are put in mind by Strother’s exuberant collage constructions).  Strother likes to incorporate humor and language relevant to his peers and does not shy from the outrageous; his titles often serving as the punch-line.
