Without Borders VIII: Breaking Ground
The University of Maine’s Intermedia Master of Fine Arts presents
Without Borders VIII: Breaking Ground. The exhibition will open on
August 12 in the Lord Hall gallery on campus and run through September
This year’s Without Borders features the thesis work of the first graduating class from the IMFA program; John Bell, Richard Corey, Ryan Guerrero, Bethany Engstrom, Matthew Leavitt and Justin Taylor. The exhibition presents a variety of art that exists “between” traditional art forms, and includes installation, variable media, sound art and community based graffiti.
“The Without Borders exhibition this year is very exciting for me, not only does this present the first full class of graduating University of Maine MFA students in Intermedia, but also the nature and breadth of the work itself is really remarkable. What is a clear, is that if nurtured, creativity can take almost any form, and what I keep coming back to is that although the work presented is very divergent, there is a wonderful and strong sense of what is possible in, or through an intermedia approach, Owen Smith, Director of the IMFA said.
The exhibit is free and open to the public weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A closing reception is scheduled for September 15 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. More information on Without Borders is available at www.withoutbordersfest.org/ and information on the Intermedia MFA can be found at www.intermediamfa.org/
