Nine Ways from Sunday: 2022 MFA in Visual Art Thesis Exhibition: Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis

The MFA in Visual Art program in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts celebrates its degree candidates every year with an exhibition at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum on the Washington University in St. Louis campus.

“Nine Ways from Sunday: 2022 MFA in Visual Art Thesis Exhibition” features thesis projects by the 2022 graduating class. This exhibition reflects the critical conversations, interdisciplinary investigations, collective visions, and diverse practices of this distinctive group of artists.

The titular phrase—“Nine Ways from Sunday”—is a variation on an idiom that alludes to something that is done completely and/or in every way possible. An apt title chosen by the artists, “Nine Ways” presents artworks in various media, exploring a broad range of themes, including spatial politics, desire and commodity fetishism, technology and the natural world, the Black Imaginary, and diasporic cultural identities.

This exhibition is organized by Leslie Markle, curator for public art, Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum. Support is provided by the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts.

Photos by Richard Sprengeler and Whitney Curtis.

Participating artists: Karina Arreola-Gutierrez, Quinn Antonio Briceño, Joseph Canizales, Noah Greene-Lowe, Erin Johnston, Martin Lammert, Sam Modder, Carlos Salazar-Lermont, and Livia Xandersmith.
