School of Visual Arts presents “Fluid Horizons,” an exhibition that brings together selected thesis projects from graduating MFA Computer Art students. Curated by India Lombardi-Bello, administrative assistant, and Milos Paripovic, systems administrator, the exhibition is on view May 30 through June 10 at the SVA Chelsea Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, New York City.


“Fluid Horizons” explores the different themes and media of digital art. “In this annual event, MFA Computer Art graduating students showcase not only their thesis projects, but also how they envision the future of art-making,” says both Lombardi-Bello and Paripovic. “The thesis exhibition is both an end and a beginning for our students,” says Terrence Masson, MFA Computer Art chair. “Regardless of the media and format of their work, their learning process has instilled a new deep-rooted sense of excitement and possibility for their life and career after graduation.”


The MFA Computer Art Department emphasizes creative experimentation and a multidisciplinary approach to making art with computers and emerging technologies. Dedicated to producing digital artists of the highest caliber, the department guides each student in the development of a personal artistic style in a course of study that is individually tailored to meet his or her needs. Students come from around the world to study in this two-year MFA degree program, which has distinguished itself with eight Student Academy Awards.
