MFA Guest Blog

The folks at the Henry have invited UW MFA students to write some blog entries in anticipation of the upcoming MFA Thesis Exhibition. With the exhibition just 2 weeks away, most of us are scrambling with last-minute considerations, installation plans, and required paperwork (statements, bios, etc.)

My project involves a video of me and my wife reenacting a recorded audio dialogue of my parents, as well as a live vocal performance by my parents and a pianist. Since my folks are music educators and many of their stories are music themed (including an anecdote about how they met in their first harmony class as music majors — I’m not making this up), I am incorporating music/performance into my art for the first time. It’s exciting, and yet there’s still so much to coordinate.

I hope you can make it to the performance May 28 (Screenings at 7:30 & 8:30pm) — it’s a one night deal. Here’s a little preview to whet your appetite.
