What a Time to Be Alive

What a Time to Be Alive
Selected Works from the 2023 MFA Graduates

Tyler School of Art and Architecture, Temple University
The Tyler School of Art and Architecture presents What a Time to Be Alive, an exhibition of works from the 2023 MFA cohort. The featured artists explore a wide range of aesthetic and conceptual concerns, often rooted in a desire to feel oneself in time, to grasp (impossibly) the present. An artwork may be a dance with conventional understandings of time; a material layering of cultural, familial and personal histories or a proposal for altered futures. Such proposals hope for a slower future, one built on closer attention, rest and repair. Some works are made to last, while others never achieve a stable form, offering flux or decay as part of their content. To imbue, to embed, to remember the present – artists as sentinels of sensorial experience.
