UG Winter 24 Exhibition, (Exhibition)

New Wight Gallery

Save as... : DMA Winter 2024 UG Exhibition
This exhibit will run from January 18th - February 1st.

"Save as…" showcases the present moment as a point in the line of one’s creative evolution. As students prepare for the next stage of their artistic development, they consider the nuanced and dynamic relationship between time-based media and current technologies. "Save as…" involves the process of choosing a certain reality or branching off to preserve a new iteration of an idea. It captures multiple perspectives and potential representations within an evolving narrative of creativity and expression. This conscious decision reflects the nuanced layers that underlie artistic interpretation and embody the depth of innovation within evolving artistic practice.

How do students feel that their artwork will be remembered? How does an artist envision their pieces existing in this transitional space?

Students are asked to reflect on their creative trajectories and saturate their present with motifs & media from the past as a method of building toward a new future. Each work is a product of intentional experimentation, and what one sees in these pieces is just a single moment in that process. Through the act of "save as," artists explore their art through themes of image, identity, and iteration as they collectively progress to the next stage in their growth; honoring their pasts by celebrating this snapshot in time and the transforming identities within this space.

This event is free and open to the public,
