Running from April 7, 2017 to April 22, 2017 in the Holzwasser Gallery
The New Art Center (NAC) is pleased to partner with Northeastern University’s College of Arts, Media, and Design to showcase the work of four graduate student artists: Mark C. Aylward, Aiwen Cheng, David Cohn, and Hannah Groudas. Working across sculpture, drawing, installation, video, and animation, these artists playfully illustrate the broad scope and unique sensibility of this new program.
This exhibition serves as a capstone to the students’ first year in the program. Each student visited NAC and worked with their advisor to propose a project responding directly to both the site and the community. Their proposals were reviewed by guest curator Susan Metrican who helped them refine and scale their projects for exhibition.
