Duke MFA EDA | Duke School for Children | Arts | Indy Week



When: Mon., May 7, 6:30 p.m. 2012

One of the great art stories this year has been the launch of Duke University's MFA program in Experimental and Documentary Arts. Although no one really knew what the program would be like going in, the initial class has turned out to be the antithesis of graduate studio art students. These folks are everywhere—making and showing work across the Triangle, curating shows, organizing film series—and they've enlivened Duke's faculty in the process, blurring those staid, blue campus borderlines. The first class of students shows some of this year's work in just about every imaginable medium: photography, film and video, installation and two-dimensional pieces. Work will be shown in and around the Duke School for Children; doors open for the reception and gallery viewing at 6:30 p.m., with outdoor screenings and slideshow beginning at 8:30 p.m. Admission is free. —Chris Vitiello
