Relatively Flat: WSU & PSU MFA Exhibition
Relatively Flat, Work on Paper Exhibition by WSU and PSU Students
“Relatively Flat” is a collaborative exhibition featuring the work of Master of Fine Arts students from WSU Pullman and Portland State University. It aims to foster cross-border exchanges, while engaging with pedagogy, and with traditional and contemporary art practices.
The exhibition brings together diverse works that create a visual and sensual resonance, employing paper, fabric and other flat surfaces in both expected and surprising ways. Collectively this show reexamines “flatness”as a concept and as a two-dimensional surface, by embracing and sometimes challenging it.
Artists exhibited in the show include:
From WSU: Anna Davis, Jon Harty, Zach Kolden, Jamin Kuhn, Hi Jung Lee, Kevin Leiter, Jade Lowder, Dawn Norman, Noelle Pflanz, Kathleen Ryan, Mazdak Shadkam and Daniel Tate
From PSU: Jea Alford , Bryan Dalton, Perry Doane, Kaila Farrell-Smith, Chris Freeman, Katie Holden, Mark Martinez, Pam Minty, Wesley Petersen, Manny Reyes, Issac Weiss and Kathryn Yancie
“Relatively Flat” was curated by the fine arts department of WSU Vancouver and PSU.
