Life Worth Living

This series, comprised of twelve chapters documenting contemporary projects produced for 2021, imagines the curative power that aesthetic and discursive pharmakons might have in our global crisis. Curated by Juli Carson in collaboration with the University Art Galleries at UC Irvine, the series will be updated periodically as new chapters come on line.

Chapter 1: Ethics of Estrangement

Post-Graduate MFA Thesis Exhibitions, Class of 2020

During spring quarter 2020, the MFA thesis exhibitions for the cohort of 2020 were set to open on April 4th at the University Art Galleries but were abruptly cancelled due to the pandemic. As a result, the galleries have since been closed to the public. As restrictions begin to loosen, we are carefully preparing to mount exhibitions once again. During the fall quarter, the UAG will present the Post-Graduate MFA Thesis Exhibitions, Class of 2020. Due to safety measures and regulations, the UAG will continue to operate remotely until further notice.
