“Art can function as a sensitizer and a catalyst, propelling people toward involvement in organized movements seeking to effect radical social change. Art is special because of its ability to influence feelings as well as knowledge.”   

—Angela Davis, Art on the Frontline: Mandate for a People’s Culture  


Seeking to position artists’ practice as a catalyst towards radical changes—social, political, cultural, and otherwise—the 2024 BFA/BA Visual Art Graduating Exhibition features 38 emerging artists who proudly present their work spanning a range of media and approaches. The exhibition additionally seeks to position the act of making art as the catalyst towards a new stage of life and a reflection of change and growth for these graduating artists.
