Five degree candidates in Moore College of Art & Design’s Graduate Studies program in Socially Engaged Art present their work in Collected Departures: The 2022 MFA Thesis Exhibition, on view from April 216, 2022 in The Galleries at Moore.

A public opening reception will take place on Friday, April 1 from 5:308 pm.

Collected Departures provides a glimpse into the pressing social issues that Moore's Socially Engaged Art graduate students are exploring through their work including digital surveillance, generational memory, vacant space and community reclamation in Philadelphia neighborhoods, and self-portraiture as a form of social practice. The exhibition reinforces Moore's ongoing commitment to showcasing the diversity of work produced by its community.

The 2022 exhibition artists are Socially Engaged Studio Art MFA candidates Destiny Garner, Elizabeth Kelly, Regan McGrory, Katy Molinaro and Dafna Steinberg.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the above candidates and Socially Engaged Art MA candidate Ayrial King will host "Lived Thesis" events in April 2022, which will be free and open to the public. More information about these upcoming events can be found at Moore's online events calendar.
