Diego Cortez was invited to choose this year’s Top MFA Prize for the UNC, Chapel Hill Art and Art History Department’s annual award, which he awarded to Carley Zarzeka. Cortez wanted to curate a small summer show from the submitted materials. Untitled, 2018 is an exhibition of ten objects, including at least one work by each artist. Cortez writes, “All 7 artists had singular works which were brilliant. Congratulations to the 7 candidates for their conceptually rich ideas and well manifested art.”
