Ever since it opened over a decade ago, the FOFA Gallery has presented an annual juried undergraduate student exhibition. Every year, commonalities in content emerge amongst the artists. Last year, it was humour and repetition.
This year’s show is no exception. In Matter of Place, several artists explore personal identities and cultural experiences.
“What I noticed about the work this year is that it is really quite beautiful, quite detailed, and more object-based than in past years. We’re seeing smaller works that are very labour-intensive to create and produce, a lot of aesthetic investigations into material.”
