THE OLYMPIA PROJECT is pleased to present Assemblage, a virtual group exhibition of works by current MFA students in their final year. Aware that most graduating students have had their thesis shows affected by the pandemic, we put out an open call across the country to individuals whose final presentations have been postponed or canceled.

 

We were impressed and excited by the submissions, and from this group selected the works we found to be the most aesthetically complex, conceptually rigorous, and especially poignant in this time. We are delighted to present this selection of exceptional artists and their works. 

Assemblage puts forth a virtual curated survey of this year's MFA class. We hope this beyond-the-studio platform can provide insight to the field of emerging artists, and create dialogues across artworks and practices that perhaps would not have occurred otherwise. While these students are graduating during an unprecedented crisis, we are inspired by the art they are creating. We look forward to following these talented artists' careers and to the physical and virtual assemblages to come. Thank you to all of the artists who submitted, and for the opportunity to experience your art during this time. 

The exhibition is co-curated by gallerist Julia Speed (of Luhring Augustine, New York), and Sophie Olympia Riese, founder of The Olympia Project. The exhibition opened with a preview on Artsy on Wednesday, April 22. 


5% of all sales from this exhibition will go to support No Kid Hungry.
