Parts of the Sum: MFA 2014 examines dynamics between individual items and the notion of a “whole” by exhibiting works that divide, reduce, combine, or collide material elements. Rather than neatly coming together like a puzzle that forms one definite image, the works on view highlight the myriad ways in which fractional parts can interact with and influence one another.
Included in the exhibition are works by Ben Alper, Michael Bramwell, Isabel Cuenca, Minjin Kang, Cody Platt, Meg Stein, Lile Stephens, Antoine Williams, and Connie Zamorano. Each participating artist earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2014.
Parts of the Sum: MFA 2014 is curated by Lauren Turner. Read the press release.
