The 2021 MFA Biennial presents the work of fifteen students enrolled in the Wonsook Kim School of Art’s Master of Fine Arts program at Illinois State University. Their artwork dynamically engages the mediums of drawing, ceramics, game design, glass, painting, performance, printmaking, sculpture, textiles, and video. These artists are at various points in a three-year program that is dedicated to helping them “develop a mature body of work by exploring the relationship between active studio practice and rigorous intellectual inquiry.” The MFA Biennial provides students with experience of preparing for and mounting a professional exhibition, seeing their work in conversation with the work of their peers, developing online programs, and documenting their work within University Galleries’ space.
