MFA students show their work at UC Davis

By
From page A7 | June 06, 2012 |

Forty-five years ago, UC Davis professor Roy De Forest wrote in the MFA catalogue, “In a time of social disruption, scientific rationalization, and political instability, the creation of art is an act of dangerous faith.”

He was talking about the Vietnam War and hippie culture; today we have war in Afghanistan, and the vast changes brought about by digital technology and the worst economic recession in almost a century.

Seven UC Davis graduate students are bravely entering into careers as visual artists in a difficult context, yet one that offers a significant opportunity to participate in their society’s change.

Their work is on exhibit at UCD’s Nelson Gallery, opening Friday with a reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The exhibition runs through June 29. The gallery is in Nelson Hall on the UCD campus, formerly the University Club.

Many of the breakthrough artistic forms of the 1960s are still with us. Students Dani Galietti and Jared Theis, for instance, both use performance as part of their practice, and will show their props and costumes and other sculptural forms as well as video.

Others are working in more traditional genres: Katherine Nulicek and Daniel Brickman are creating installations of discrete sculptures. Terry Peterson is making kinetic sculpture, while Kyle Dunn and Erika Romero both will be showing painting and sculpture that are closely related to each other.

A catalogue will be published featuring images of the artists’ works, and short essays by Renny Pritikin, director of the Nelson Gallery, about each of the artists.
