In order to complete their MFA, Students of the Academy must complete a body of coherent work for their Graduate Exhibition. The work from this years graduated students of the Metalsmithing department exists in juxtaposition realms: between jewelry and sculpture, installation and performance, body and its absence, the object and the void. The utilization of these spaces, allow room for conversations regarding relationships, displacement, mental and physical health, ritual and pain.
