If you’re reading this, it means that you’ve stumbled upon the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts’ blog for the upcoming 2011 Biennial. Curated by Maiza Hixson, the Biennial runs from October 7, 2011 to February 5, 2012. This year’s Biennial, entitled Masters of the Visual Universe, is a juried group exhibition featuring emerging artists who are enrolled in Masters of Fine Arts programs throughout the Eastern Atlantic region. The show received over 50 hundred artist submissions from MFA students! Out of those 50+ submissions, 9 artists from 7 schools were chosen to exhibit their work. 13 additional artists were chosen from Towson University to create a special exhibition in response to the Masters of the Visual Universe. The work of all of the artists represents a wide array of media including photography, painting, sculpture, collage, and even an interactive video installation. In addition to representing up and coming artists, the Master of the Visual Universe explores the role of art education while asking the question: What does it mean to have an MFA?
