“Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of M.F.A. candidates from VPA’s School of Art, School of Design, and Department of Transmedia and is curated by Shehab Awad, exhibitions and programs associate at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Art, New York City.
Featuring a diverse array of paintings, sculptures, video and installations, “Hiding in Plain Sight” represents the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a significant, self-led shift toward multidisciplinary experimentation. The result is a collection of works which, through their staging and materiality, radicalize traditional modes of art-making and subvert our perception of space and reality.
