VR Experience: Memory Unearthed

Memory Unearthed, the IAIA 2020 Spring Senior Graduating Exhibition is available virtually. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent closure of the IAIA campus for the safety of our community, students’ works have been amended, altering the physical to the virtual in a prodigious show of adaptability and ingenuity. Memory Unearthed is a culmination of the students’ final semester, where they worked closely with advisors, faculty, staff, and colleagues to create and articulate their conceptually-driven body of work. This exhibition represents a capstone to their course of study, as well as their academic experience.

For more information, please contact Balzer Contemporary Edge Gallery Director Mattie Reynolds (Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma) at (505) 428-5813 or at mattie.reynolds@iaia.edu.
