SoCalMFA reflects an increasingly diversified portrait of emerging artists in L.A.

This year’s SoCalMFA organizers, in conjunction with the Millard Sheets Art Center and Claremont Graduate University, are pleased to announce the third and largest annual Southern California MFA exhibition in Millard Sheets’ newly-renovated facility. Juried by Howard N. Fox, the exhibit captures 42 artists representing 17 Southern California MFA programs, using media that includes painting, fabric, sculpture, video, photography, installation, drawing, mixed-media, and more. Taken together, this exhibit is a barometer of the diverse critical and aesthetic concerns that will shape artistic production in Southern California for years to come. The exhibition also reflects Claremont’s Graduate University’s leadership as a center for artistic and cultural production in Southern California at the graduate level.

This year’s SoCal MFA organizing team is made up of former and current Claremont Graduate University students Madeline Arnault, Chelsea Boxwell, and Megan Kinney. The exhibition is the largest MFA exhibition in bothnumberof works exhibited andnumberof schools represented. The 2018 exhibition includes 17 out of 18 eligible MFA programs in Southern California.

Since 2016, the SoCalMFA exhibit has called upon a guest juror to select works and curate, beginning with Steve Comba (2016) and Amanda Ross-Ho (2017). This year the juror will be Howard N. Fox, an independent curator and former Curator of Contemporary Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

We invite the public to explore this exhibition’s complex perspectives and overlapping themes and invite you to attend the exhibit’s opening reception onSunday, March 25, from2-6 p.m.

Accompanying the exhibition will be a public panel led by CGU Professor of Art Theory and History and LA Times art critic David Pagel. The panel will be free and open to the public and will address the culture of the MFA program. Selected artists from the exhibition will join Pagel in this discussion with a Q&A session from the audience.Dates and times will be posted onthe Fairplexwebsite and SoCalMFA’s Facebook Page. Please stay tuned for more information.
