The graduate program in Fine Arts at California College of the Arts celebrates its 2020 MFA degree candidates with a specially commissioned website. Showcasing the work of a cohort of emerging artists working across disciplines, the site has been conceived as a capstone celebration of two years of graduate work as well as an evolving response to the current moment of pandemic and its effects on artistic practice. The site features monographic sections, commissioned writings, visual inspirations, propositions for the future, and live-streamed events.

Organized by Glen Helfand and Kim Nguyen.
