Nine Exhibitions / Nine Weeks
July 12 – September 19, 2020

Fourteen30 Contemporary is pleased to showcase nine Thesis exhibitions of the
Pacific Northwest College of Art’s Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies.
Presented as a series of solo exhibitions, each the duration of seven days, July
12 through September 19, 2020.

Taking place during the global COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a national civil
rights movement, the preceding exhibitions are an opportunity for nine burgeoning artists to be seen on a wider contemporary art platform. Fourteen30 Contemporary
joins a list of galleries throughout the US, including Perrotin gallery (New York)
and Steve Turner (Los Angeles), in presenting graduating classes of 2020 in unprecedented times. Additional student exhibitions can be seen virtually on
Thesis Shows 2020,” a website conceived by the graduating photography class
at the Rhode Island School of Design and built by the students Yueying Erin
Wang and Travis Morehead. It links to documentation of complete exhibitions
by the entire class at 75 art programs in the United States and Canada.
