We are the New Media Senior Class of 2020 at Purchase College, presenting our senior exhibition, S0CIAL D1STANCE.
You are cordially invited to the opening reception for the Purchase College New Media Senior Project online exhibition, S0CIAL D1STANCE, on April 29th, Wednesday, at 7 PM. The opening reception will take place on Zoom with public remarks, presentations, and performances.
Each year seniors are expected to work towards a project that is a culmination of our undergraduate education, presenting them in a public exhibition to receive feedback from our faculty, families, and friends.
Given the current situation surrounding COVID-19, a physical exhibition was deemed not possible just weeks before the event was scheduled. For almost all students,this meant a complete overhaul of their projects. Some had to scrap entire sculptures when we were asked to leave campus, while some had to forgo their entire concepts and create a new thesis and a new project to fit within digital space.
In the face of this,it felt appropriate to name our gathering after our current challenges. S0CIAL D1STANCE is a show about creating as a unit while being alone, about art in the face of adversity, and about being the first students to graduate into a changed new world.
