In conjunction with the Contemporary Jewish Museum, SFAI presents a screening of works by graduating Master of Fine Arts students who excel in the moving image field. Steeped in an avant-garde tradition, SFAI’s MFA program encourages conceptual experimentation and fosters an independent spirit in both thinking and making. Across works in film, video, and performance documentation, the featured artists open our eyes to new modes of understanding from within the temporal-visual plane.

Grappling with issues of perception and meaning, transition and liminality, and the nature of art-making in the globalized 21st century, each artist probes the question of what it means to be an artist in the world—tacitly and provocatively expanding our understanding of the significance of the creative impulse today. Please join us as we introduce a new generation of moving image artists to the Bay Area through this inaugural screening at the Contemporary Jewish Museum.
