MFA NEVER at Root Division, San Francisco

MFA Never

Root Division, San Francisco, Feb. 10-27

 












Review:  Sarah Hotchkiss, KQED Arts:

 MFA NOW,  an annual juried exhibition of work by current Bay Area MFA candidates, has been a staple of Root Division's program for the past four years. But in the "age of $120,000 art degrees, what about those who opt out of the academic machine? Juried by Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen, Donna Napper and Brion Nuda Rosch. MFA Never includes artists who's names might surprise some, considering how established they are within the Bay Area art scene. But then that's the whole point - an MFA is not a sure path towards success, or even a sign of artistic accomplishment. Bravo to Root Division for entering this ongoing and vital conversation.



2nd Sat Reception:
Saturday, February 13, 2016 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm

MFA Never was conceptualized by Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen, to create opportunity for underrepresented artists, those who are unaffiliated with alumni networks, and may have not had the debut opportunity offered by the MFA Thesis exhibition. MacFadyen is the founder of A Simple Collective, a contemporary arts organization dedicated to, "access, equality, ingenuity, creativity, and independence."

Every artist who submitted to MFA NEVER will be featured in the MFA NEVER archive catalogue. The book includes information about each contributing artist and a compilation of essays by Root Division staff, and the panel of exhibition jurors, serving to unpack some of the issues surrounding decisions to not pursue higher education.

Comment by AB: You wouldn't think a place like this could still exist in San Francisco-- a completely bombed-out house, the facade looking like something out of a grade B horror film. But it's really kinda kicky inside, existing for the time being as some kind of an "art compound" complete with chickens in the backyard. The atmosphere is warm and convivial with artistic oddities on display everywhere.
