May 12 - August 31, 2021
Worldbuilding embraces speculative world-making as an artistic practice. The work exhibited here was created by students in ARTS 3170: Intermediate Digital Drawing taught by Corinne Teed. At a time when we were all forced to reckon with a changing pandemic landscape, our engagement with the fabulous, the impossible, the topic, and the fantastical, both provide an escape and help us to reflect on the world in which we live. Through animations, book arts, comics, and illustrations, students explored themes of sanctuary, mutual aid, apocalypse, and beyond as they pushed against the confines of our current world.
Artists in the exhibition include Stephen Alberts, Nathan Brzycki, Emma Bushard, Emily Christensen, Yang Chen, Ruth Chun, Mimi Dang, Alex Hei, Jaden McClellan, Julian McClellan, Lalita Prachanty, Reid Luskey, Tanisha Petherbridge, and Ahn Tran. Read Jaden McClellan's full digital comic, Heart Heroes featuring the origin story of pacemaker robot superheroes. View the following animations below by Stephen Alberts, Nathan Brzycki, Yang Chen, Ruth Chun, Julian McClellan, and Ahn Tran.
