Exhibition: Midway
The Student Union Art Gallery presents: Rondo Scordatura, a collaboration conceived by four second-year MFA students from the University of Massachusetts Studio Arts Department (Lauren Kohne, Nour Bishouty, Priya Nadkarni, Tom Prutisto). Each artist came independently to bring new materials to the gallery and build upon an installation. Only the next artist in line was able to see the last artist's contribution--creating a situation of a "blind" collaboration similar to an exquisite corpse exercise. The final result of the installation remained unknown to all the participating artists throughout the duration of its formation.

Exhibition runs: 1/23 - 2/1

Times: Mon - Thurs 10 to 5pm
Fri 10 to 3pm

All events are free and open to the public. Made possible by the UMass Arts Council, the GSS, the SGA, and an ECSA (Engage, Connect, Serve, Achieve) Grant, which is funded by the CSD and the Division of Student Affairs & Campus Life.
