DESCRIPTION

This exhibition looks to the process of MFA programs as a point of reference to allegorize the relationship to the child in terms of careers in the arts. The exhibition references the title of a famous book by psychoanalyst Alice Miller which examines the loss of self that occurs in childhood and the subsequent process by which an adult can retrieve his or her identity that was misplaced in earlier years. Artists selected for this exhibition have completed an MFA art program within the past five years and through this process of acceptance and loss, of identity, support, recognition and tension have continued to create new pieces of work.
