UCLA Department of Design Media Arts presents 2019 MFA Thesis Exhibition, “An Unreal Unity”

The department of Design Media Arts at UCLA is pleased to present a group exhibition featuring the work of its 2019 MFA candidates. The exhibition features screen-based and interactive artwork, large-scale installations, and immersive projection. Themes include the Anthropocene, corporeal estrangement, speculative interventions, and emotional inquest. Participating artists are Hye Min Cho, Kit Kirby, Sara Drake, Isabelle Chen, Lena NW, Phazero, Maru Garcia, Carlos “L05” Garcia, Sam Congdon, Julian Stein, and Paul Carlo Esposito.

The Design Media Arts two-year MFA program focuses on each student's artistic development within the context of media arts. Each student works toward an individual thesis project that incorporates research and theoretical exploration of a topic of their choice, with the goal of producing a refined body of work that culminates in an MFA exhibition. DMA graduate students come from many fields including the visual arts, sciences, and engineering. In the first year of the program, students take skills and theory courses that expose them to new ways of thinking and making, which they use to build on their existing expertise.

The department will host an opening reception for the exhibition on Thursday, May 16th at 5pm. The exhibition will be open weekdays from 10:00am to 5:00pm through May 30th.

This event is FREE and OPEN to the public.

The exhibition will take place in the UCLA Broad Art Center’s New Wight Gallery, Broad Art Center, Suite 1100 Los Angeles, CA 90095.
