Yes (to everything), is a RISD 2007 MFA Photography thesis exhibition. Organized by MFA candidate Cortney Andrews, whose work will be shown along with the photography of candidates Jonathan Cana, Maureen Keaveny, Amy Lovera, Patrick Madigan and Millee Tibbs, the exhibition’s title refers to the varied style and approach of these six students as well as the limitless opportunities that may await them upon completion of their degree program. The work in the exhibition ranges in narrative from the mundane to the surreal, from menacing to mechanical, to images of the self, within and without comfort.
“Ranging from luscious color prints to multimedia installations, the diverse work of these artists raises issues and reconfigures traditions of sexuality, topography, technology, fantasy and time passage (just to name a few).
Are things risky? Do we worry? Can we contribute to a larger, more pertinent conversation? Will we be part of the generation that reroutes the direction in which things seem to be heading? – Yes (to everything)”.
