ARTiculated: 2013 Senior Student Show
Curated by Leaf Ye (Art History, '13)
April 18-May 19
Every artist is a natural storyteller, each with their own unique visual language. The direction, force, and position of every gesture; the hue, value, and saturation of every color; the light, shadow and space of every composition; as well as the form, texture, and motion of every construction– all of these elements become phonemes, punctuations, accents, words, and phrases that construct the character, plot, setting, conflict and meaning in a visual narrative. Whether or not these narratives be factual or fictive, objective or subjective, the teller/artist and the listener/audience are actively involved in the construction and interpretation of meaning.

The annual senior show is a long-standing tradition at Ithaca College, providing an opportunity for graduating seniors from the Departments of Art and Cinema, Photography, and Media Arts to showcase the projects they’ve made during their tenure on campus. Students submit work through a faculty jury, who select on basis of merit, aesthetics, and demonstrated commitment to experimentation. Accepted submissions are then curated into a group exhibition, an enormous feat steered by student interns from the Department of Art History. Congratulations to all of the graduating students involved in this show, as well as the families, friends, faculty, and staff that fostered their creative growth.
