Reception for the Department of Art MFA Thesis Exhibition, curated by Bruce Ferguson, President of Otis College of Art & Design.
“Duchamp, following Wittgenstein, understood that the world as we know it is a language game. He used chess as a metaphor for “pure” art – a set of endlessly iterated and re-iterated “moves” which together constitute a language of sorts. Not language as a set of fixed or final rules or as a vehicle for predetermined meanings but as a succession of related speech acts.”
Exhibiting graduate students: Toni Scott, Jimmy Miracle, Carlos Ochoa, Lucy Holtsnider, Robert Huerta, Jennifer Lugris and Daria Izad.
Sponsored by the Division of Humanities and Fine Arts, Graduate Division, IHC, and the Dept. of History of Art & Architecture
