About the Wight Biennial

Founded in 1997 by professor and artist Mary Kelly, then chair of the UCLA Department of Art, the Wight Biennial is curated and produced by a committee of graduate students in the art department, often in collaboration with students from other departments. The objective of the show is to exhibit this specific group of emerging artists as well as foster an investigative exchange between graduate programs at UCLA and other institutions.

Wight Biennial 2008 Curatorial Committee:
Jennifer Gradecki, Matthias Merkel-Hess, Alexandro Segade, Wu Ingrid Tsang.
