The College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) will open “Neither Confirmed Nor Denied: MFA 2015” on Monday, May 18, at Rogue Space Chelsea in New York City. The annual master of fine arts (MFA) exhibition includes 18 artists working in a variety of traditional and new media.
The concepts and themes that the artists consider are as varied as the media they employ in their work. Familiar tropes of gender, social politics and religion are reinterpreted through installations that blur the preconceived classifications of traditional technique. Contemporary ideas about communication and shared experience have emerged as both the artist’s subject and the vehicle to engage with the viewer.
“Neither Confirmed Nor Denied” exemplifies the multidisciplinary approach and the contemporary ideas that are shaping the art world today.
The exhibition will run May 18-22 at Rogue Space, located at 526 West 26th Street. A gallery reception will be held on Thursday, May 21, from 6-8 p.m. The exhibition and events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
