Prop the Door: Opening October 30th, 2020
The launch of thesouthstudios.com coincides with our inaugural exhibition's opening - join us on October 30th, 2020 at 6:00 pm CST for the opening of Prop the Door.
To leave a door propped open is to invite others in, to open oneself to being vulnerable. COVID-era realities have resulted in perhaps-permanent changes to our understandings of openness and vulnerability, and necessitated new conceptions of safety, community, and work.
Traditionally, the first exhibition of the school year features the work of second- and third-year students in the Studio Art graduate program. This year, we are excited to include the work of our two new graduate students, Abigail Holcombe and Kendra Ward, in our inaugural exhibition for The South Studios.
This digital exhibition, opening with the launch of The South Studios, is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, alumni, community members, and our friends and family to see what we are thinking about and creating in this moment in the Studio Art program at UIUC.
Curated by Sydney Vize, Salem Turchan, and Jake Foster.
Prop the Door opens at 6:00 pm CST on October 30, 2020.
