'Ghosted' presents current work from six second-year graduate students. Working across media, scale, and themes, these artists are conceptually united through their affinity for the immaterial, intangible, remembered, spoken, or fantasized. The exhibit alludes to the earnest manifestations that presence takes within each artists' work. Ghosts of the past, present, future, and celestial haunt their work, though these apparitions register in different material, forms, methods, and themes.
This exhibit is curated by Leah Triplett Harrington, a Boston-based writer, editor, and curator focused on modern and contemporary art who has lectured on art criticism at Boston University, Montserrat College of Art, Stonehill College, and Tufts University Art Gallery. This exhibit is organized with the assistance of Coe Lapossy, lecturer in the Department of Art.
'Ghosted' was made possible with generous support from the UMass Arts Council and the College of Humanities and Fine Arts.
Herter Art Gallery is located at the north end of Herter Hall west of the Fine Arts Center. Public parking is available at all times behind the Robsham Visitors Center and at meters along Haigis Mall.
