MASTER PIECES
9th Annual Exhibition of Current & Recent Graduate Students
Representing 16 Academic MFA Programs Around the U.S.

9th Annual
MASTER PIECES

An Exhibit of Works by Current or Recent Graduate Students

Building upon the philosophy of its Rites of Passage exhibits for undergrads, each year Manifest offers a similar opportunity to current and recent graduate students for exhibiting at Manifest.

This ninth installment of the Master Pieces project will continue to reveal the intensity and professionalism of students working towards (or having just achieved) their terminal academic degree in the fields of art or design.

The exhibit is the only one to-date assigned to all five galleries at Manifest. As do our annual Rites of Passage and TAPPED exhibits, Master Pieces reflects our commitment to surveying, documenting, and presenting the state of arts in academia on an ongoing basis. We believe this is important to artists, the public, students, and professors.

Often the most exceptional work comes out of graduate students' immersion in their culture of study and intellectual pursuit. Manifest’s goal, therefore, is to select and document works that in the truest sense of the word are contemporary masterpieces—works that set the standard of quality that the artist is expected to maintain throughout his or her professional career. The exhibit catalogs for Master Pieces, and now the Manifest Exhibition Annual, will serve as visual documentation of these artists’ own benchmarks for years to come.

For this year's project 143 artists representing 74 different academic graduate programs submitted 466 works for consideration by Manifest's rigorous jury process. Nineteen works by the following 16 artists from 9 states representing 16 different academic programs were selected for presentation in the gallery and publication.
