Ghosted - The Annual MFA Midway Show

MFA Midway Show

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. Presence (physical or immaterial) is paramount. 

A ghost is an apparition, a specter, a being that haunts; "ghosted" refers to an abrupt exit or something especially effortless. Here, Ghosted 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. 

Curated by Leah Triplett Harrington, a Boston-based writer, editor, and curator focused on modern and contemporary art, and organized with the assistance of Coe Lapossy, Lecturer in the Department of Art, this exhibition was made possible with generous support from the UMass Arts Council and the College of Humanities and Fine Arts. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public as well as to all Five College students, faculty, and staff.
