April 12 – May 25, 2024

Taking place in the spring of each year, this exhibition highlights work selected from the thesis projects of graduating seniors in Studio Art. This year, eight emerging artists will present work in various media and processes including animation, installation, painting, performance, and mixed media.

Thesis projects vary from student to student, each pursuing an individual interest. The emphasis of the program is on creating a cohesive body of related works through sustained studio practice and critical inquiry. The year-long process is overseen by Art & Visual Culture (AVC) faculty, and culminates in this exhibition. The Bates College Museum of Art maintains a close relationship with the college’s AVC department, and is committed to supporting the work of Bates students through this Annual Senior Thesis Exhibition.
