Knowns, Unknowns & the Spaces in Between – launched June 4, 2021

The Jacob Lawrence Gallery proudly presents a group exhibition showcasing 40 emerging artists from the School’s four BA in Art concentrations: 3D4M: ceramics + glass + sculpture, Interdisciplinary Visual Arts, Painting + Drawing, and Photo/Media. Knowns, Unknowns & the Spaces in Between arose from the extraordinary conditions of the last year, which shed new light on what it means to live with uncertainty. It explores the liminal space where transformation occurs and the unending process of becoming, drawing inspiration from student experiences during a major transition in their lives.

The Division of Design presents the work of the graduating Bachelor of Design (BDes) students in Industrial Design, Interaction Design, and Visual Communication Design.
