Print Story | Email Story
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass.—The Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) presents a summer-long celebration of graduating students' art and research in the form of the annual senior studio art exhibition as well as a special installation curated by Kailyn Gibson '22 that illustrates themes in her Art History honors thesis.  
 
"This year's presentation expands on our vital collaboration with art department students and faculty in exciting ways, showcasing the possibilities of the campus art museum as a learning laboratory for the next generation of artists and scholars," said Pamela Franks, the Class of 1956 Director. 
 
"Searching for Sticky Voids" presents work by nineteen graduating artists as the culmination of their Senior Studio Seminar experience: Alexander Joshua, Ana Delgado Fernández, Armanis Fuentes, Calen Geiser-Cseh, Dara Etienne, Emily Neuner, Gina Al-Karablieh, Gina Galván, Helene Ryu, Indica Indaclub, Javier Robelo, Jennifer Lee, Joseph Messer, Kayla Han, Kelsie Hao, Noor Alsairafi, Phillip Pyle, Quinnton Cooper, and Sadie Strosser.
 
This year's seminar was led by Williams College assistant professor of art Sarah Rara, herself a multidisciplinary artist working in video, sound, writing, and performance. 
 
According to a press release, the artworks presented enter into sticky voids: areas of inquiry that resist easy answers and stable meaning. The exhibition is conceived around the idea of entrapping and extending perception, and the works on view embrace themes of memory, homemaking, worldbuilding, identity, and time. Diverse media and artistic practices—spanning video, sound, installation, photography, works on paper, and more—gesture toward the expansiveness of the artists' explorations.
