Assemblage II is the second iteration held by the Visa 582/582 MFA graduate student class with instructor Tania Willard. Assemblage II takes on development from the studio of diverging artistic practices but aligns resultant artworks in the gallery in ways that position new dialogues between practices, concepts and materials.

From sculptural works that are conceptually driven by the state of women in Iran to; graffiti sentiments, the beauty of photographic archives of daily life, augmented reality, mixed media works informed by Persian miniature painting and figurative painting that focuses on our complex mental states, the exhibition positions differently informed works into conversation with one another and an assemblage of our human experience emerges. Assemblage highlights the engaging and dynamic work of graduate students in the MFA program showing a range of practices and emerging dialogues.
