The exhibition, curated by Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori of The They Co. and SPRING/ BREAK Art Show, features work by 14 MFA candidates graduating from Brooklyn College this spring. Thru-Line represents the culmination of two years of research and experimentation in the studio. It highlights the diverse styles, interests and varied methods of art making available to contemporary artists today. The included artwork ranges from painting, drawing, fibers, sculpture, video, ceramics and photography to work that blurs the lines between these. Although seemingly disparate, there is a consistent line of questioning present that wrestles with and explores diverse ideas of identity, culture, politics, memory and place.
