The Pratt Institute MFA Class of 2020 is proud to share our group curatorial project, Emergent Poise.  As COVID-19 descended on NYC, our final thesis year was abruptly dismantled just as our thesis shows were about to debut.  All shows were cancelled, and as a cohort we had to withdraw from our studios and shelter in place, along with the community at large.

 

As this new reality settled in, we adjusted our approach, found new spaces and working methods, and persevered through the disappointment and heartache.  We found our focus sharpened and distilled, remaining poised to make our next move.  We are proud to share this exhibition of thesis work and beyond, demonstrating our individual practices and responses to this new emergent world.
