All five galleries in the Fine Arts Building contain artwork from a variety of Master of Fine Art students in this weeks Graduate Critique Week. The week allows MFA graduate students to receive feedback on their artwork from people throughout the community, in addition to the critique classes they are mandated to take at Long Beach State. A wide variety of artworks are shown ranging from sculpture, painting, video, installation and more.
Previously featured in the exhibit “Race and Othered” during late September, Jillian Thompson’s “Look, but don’t touch” among many other artworks is displayed in the critique week.
Video, sculpture and natural elements make up second year Master of Fine Arts student Briana Miyoko’s piece, “Passage, Santa Ines.” This piece was created after she lived the aftermath of natural disasters in Santa Barbara and New Zealand. She explores the impact that they have on the environment.
