This exhibition presents the work of artists Skylar Borgstrom, Caitlin Cass, AJ Fries, Kristine Mifsud, Carl Spartz, Marc Tomko, Kurt Treeby and Necole Zayatz. The artists have produced work that, while still retaining their individual artistic practice, make reference to the Cravens World Collection as their resource. The Cravens World Collection, made up of nearly 1,100 objects, is an astonishing amalgam of archaeological and ethnographic objects spanning the globe and dating as far back as 4,500 B.C.E.

 

This exhibition is curated by Katherine Gaudy, 2015-16 Curatorial Graduate Assistant for the UB Art Galleries and MFA student in the UB Department of Art. The Curatorial Graduate Assistant is a competitive annual position within the Department of Art that provides MFA students with experience working alongside museum professional as well as the opportunity to propose and curate their own exhibitions.
