Masters of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition by Joris Pieter Lindhout
Tulane University’s Newcomb Art Department will be showcasing work by six graduate students receiving their MFA degrees in Studio Art this spring. Two of these students, Cora Lautze (Printmaking) and Joris Pieter Lindhout (Digital Arts) will be exhibiting together from Monday, March 11 – Tuesday, March 19, 2019. Their exhibition is jointly called PrtScr.SysRq.
As Lindhout says of his work in his artist’s statement:
“The body of work I have been developing over the past year connects my previous ventures into the Gothic with digital technologies; in what ways does the promise of technology not hold up? Where does tech stop relieving us and start burdening us? And where does our grip on it begin to slip? With a series of robotic sculptures and installations I’m exploring these questions and the strangely hazy field in between them.”
The exhibition will be held in the Carroll Gallery of the Newcomb Art Department, housed in the Woldenberg Art Center on the Uptown Campus of Tulane University.
The opening reception will take place on Monday, March 11, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., with a walkthrough by the artists at 6:30 pm. Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 9 am – 4 pm, and special weekend hours for this exhibition only will be Saturday, March 16 and Sunday, March 17, noon – 5 pm.
