in·position presents the thesis work of graduating MFA candidates in AU's Studio Art program. The artists critically interrogate and contend with the inescapable implications of our respective positionalities and vulnerabilities. As we look outwards, we look inwards – aware of the plethora of identities, bodies, and materials that intimately shape the position from which our perspectives are formed.
Featuring artists: Anthony Frank, Hyunsuk Erickson, Katie Hartley, Kevin Michael Runyon, Ku·bar·i·ki·wa Rudd, Nicole Maloof, Patrick Burns, and Shiloah Symone Coley.
