Join us for the opening reception of ‘Open Dissonance’, the 2017 Mills College Senior Thesis Exhibition on view at MCAM from March 28-April 16, 2017. An annual exhibition featuring the work of graduating Studio Art majors, the senior thesis exhibition provides a unique opportunity to these young artists––their first exhibition in a professional art museum. This year’s presenting artists are Tara Batiste, Aliza Cord, Laura Elizarraras, Charity B. Ellis, Katie Ganz, Amy Leader, Connie Lee, Macie Lopez, Nora Roth, Anne Samberg, Lena Toney, and Alyia-Renee Yates.
Experimenting with a range of forms and media from painting and photography to video-installation and ceramics, the artists in Open Dissonance navigate their final moments as undergrads with both anticipation and uncertainty. For these 12 artists, the exhibition is a strong demonstration of their artistic potential and the creative possibilities their work evokes.
