$960,000+, the second of two thesis exhibitions featuring drawing, painting, video, animation and site-specific installations by graduating MFA Fine Arts Department students. $960,000+ is curated by New York-based curator and critic João Ribas and includes work by brianelectro, Eun Woo Cho, Michael Egan, Nikolas Gambaroff, Miryana Gligoric, Hadassa Goldvicht, Yu-Sheng Ho, Sung Hee Jang, Crisman Liverman, Jason Losh, Lara Star Martini, Ann Oren, Lai-Chung Poon, Ryan Sullivan, Kristen Wykret and Yejin Yoo.
The exhibition’s title refers to the combined living and educational expenses of the participating artists, estimated at $60,000 per person. Intended to call attention to the economics of making and distributing art and the current climate for emerging artists, the title grew out of discussion among the artists and curator in preparation for the exhibition. Their discussion continues in a blog of the same name, http://960000.blogspot.com/.
