MFA AC+D Exhibition: Thing Panic!
Join the MFA in Applied Craft + Design for an exhibition of their work at The Bison Building on April 21, 2017. The exhibition will feature work by the MFA AC+D Class of 2018.
To make a thing is to give shape to an idea—to bring that wild intangible stuff of thought into the concrete, physical world with the hands/mouth/feet/lungs/etc. And just as vocalising a thought risks failing understanding, making a thing risks failing intention.
The world we live in already bursts at its seams with material objects—artifacts of our human needs and wants—yet still there is so much misunderstanding. How do we make a thing that communicates our ideas, without simply adding to the chaos?
This is an exhibition of how we, as individual artists, designers, and thinkers, do this thing thing.
