Paul Komada, Tower of US, 2012
Paul Komada (MFA '02) has been selected to exhibit in the BAM Biennial 2012: High Fiber Diet exhibition, Bellevue, WA. 

Bringing together more than 40 contemporary artists, BAM Biennial 2012 explores one of the most thriving media today: fiber. With its versatility and ready availability, fiber has long had its firm place in the Do-It-Yourself movement, yet is often underexposed in the traditional art world. Shining a spotlight on fiber art created in the Northwest, BAM Biennial 2012: High Fiber Diet celebrates both the region's rich traditions as well as new expressions, where concepts of art and craft merge.

The show is on view now through February 24, 2013.

Mark Dilks (MFA '13) and Alex Nguyen (MFA '13) Exhibit at Fjord, Philadelphia

Mark Dilks and Alex Nguyen (both MFA '13) present their collaborative work Future Sentimentality in the exhibition Dirge at Fjord, Philadelphia.

The artists take on the infeasible task of integrating and distinguishing bodies within the various modes of representation - drawing attention to the complexity of distance and intimacy in our current perception of media structures. The installation functions as a visual and spatial aggregate of antihesis, wherein each work creates a spectacle of stasis, malaise, revery, and remembrance.
