Hiding in Plain Sight
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse, NY13202

In an age where judgement is shaped by "alternative facts," the artworks in "Hiding in Plain Sight" do not attempt to offer any absolute truths or solutions, because the truth is unimaginable.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

Curated by Shehab Awad, curator of exhibitions and programs at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Art in New York City, the MFA exhibition is divided among three Syracuse University exhibition spaces and features 31 artists. The participating venues include SUArt Galleries, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center.

The Point of Contact exhibit features the work Eric Charlton, Joan Farrenkopf, Marilyn Koch, Jo Yu Lee, Katie Levesque, and Luxin Zhang.

Featuring a diverse array of paintings, sculptures, video and installations, "Hiding in Plain Sight" represents the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a significant, self-led shift toward multidisciplinary experimentation. The result is a collection of works which, through their staging and materiality, radicalize traditional modes of art-making and subvert our perception of space and reality.
