We acknowledge the school’s own complicity in systemic racism, and our responsibility to do more to dismantle white supremacy and violence.
Laura Hudspith’s interdisciplinary work explores the relationship between chronic illness and feminist action. With a focus in autotheoretical methodologies, her work positions practice, performance, and product as indistinguishable elements that are equally personal and political in nature. Casting and capturing pieces of herself in poetic texts, sculpture and lens-based work, Hudspith enacts rituals of self-imposed objectification where the asomatous is somatically shed and agency reclaimed.
Sarah Bowling is an interdisciplinary artist exploring the power dynamics embedded within intimacy and relationships, the phases of vulnerability within the self, and the weight of desire. Her work is brightly colored, blingy, and unapologetically demands attention.
Caroline Yoo’s past informs her work exploring the boundaries between belonging, othering, and being. Using her body as vessel, she poses questions on larger topics of power structures and embedded cultural norms in relation to immigration, race, gender, and sexuality.
Working across film, video, installation, performance, and text, Rebecca Shapass creates bio-mythographic, audio-visual worlds where the fissures between personal and collective memory are mined to reveal fragile systems of perception and remembering.
Anisha Baid’s practice and research involve an investigation of pervasive technologies through an examination of their design, diversity of use, and their relationship with ideas from science fiction. Her work attempts to poke at the flat-scapes of the computer screen to decode computer labor through the interface — a technological tool that has converted most spaces of work into image space.
Rosabel Rosalind creates images across a variety of media that mythologize autobiographical and historical narratives and collapse anthropocentric and white-supremacist hierarchies of power into a sublime fiction, reflecting her identity as a valley girl, a Funny Girl, and a nice Jewish girl.
