The Art Department at UNC-Chapel Hill is proud to announce the MFA Thesis exhibition for the graduating class of 2019 at the Durham Fruit Co. The thesis exhibition, entitled Under the Rug, presents the work of nine artists who address a wide range of inquiries through various media including painting, works on paper, sculpture, installation, photography, performance, and video.

Mining various personal, ecological, social, philosophical and religious histories and traditions, the artists’ culminating work challenges the viewer to think about the potential ways the future could manifest. Under the Rug alludes to the latent possibilities in their subject matter, always present but beneath the visible surface.
