A graduate exhibition is a space where multiple sites of knowledge production collide: artist studio; workshop; library; archive, etc. It is a space where years of diligent study are miraculously and alchemically distilled, and then cast into a purifed output. In this way, each practice fnds its own, unique form that although disparate in its multitude of mediums and concerns - whose diversity this exhibition celebrates - becomes unifed through a foundational demand for space, audience and a subsequent physical encounter. This unparalleled rite of passage was curtailed for the class of 2020. However, this cohort resisted limbo and strode forward with their practices: they embraced novel restraints; navigated the choppy, disembodying waters of online learning, and charted new territory via RCA2020 (an online platform that showcased their work). Notwithstanding, a fundamental demand for space remained, that now, a year after the fact, is answered here in Space Lapse.
