Our Intermedia MFA show officially opens with a reception on Thursday, Sept. 3rd from 5 to 7pm in the Lord Hall Gallery.  Check out the show website here.

As the Without Borders Contemporary Art Festival /exhibition presents its twelfth iteration, In the Door, Out the Window (August 7 – September 25), it is a good time to think about the role and place of creativity and the arts. The series of eleven preceding presentations that have taken place under this name Without Borders are connected to themselves and this current exhibition by a simple but significant thread, to present interesting and diverse work by a range of contemporary artists. Especially work that seeks to reconsider what we do as creative producers and how the works can exist in forms that are in one way or another intermedial. In this context I am using intermedia more loosely than the original way Dick Higgins did when he coined the term in the 1960s. Instead I am using it more in line with the focus of the Intermedia MFA Program at the University of Maine, that is to refer to work that both can exist in the spaces between media or materials, as well as work that explores the variable possibilities of perception, cognition, reception and/or interaction. In short to be “without borders” is to be intermedial.
