Senior BFA Major to Present Thesis Exhibition

Senior BFA Major to Present Thesis Exhibition

04/18/2017 

The complex and interactive multimedia installation work of Justin Pribulick will be shown during his Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) thesis exhibition beginning Thursday, April 27, in the Dowd Fine Arts Center critique space.

An opening reception and artist’s talk will be held from 4-5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 27. Pribulick will discuss his work starting at approximately 4:45 p.m.

Located below the Dowd Gallery balcony, the display can be viewed 7 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The exhibition will be removed on Saturday, May 13.

The exhibition and opening reception are free and open to the public.

Pribulick, a senior sculpture major from Horseheads, N.Y., will show works that are a part of his ongoing narrative examination of societal domination and control.

Pribulick’s installation allows viewers to crush and manipulate certain sections, making them active participants in this domination.

His installation includes works in ceramic, iron, aluminum and paint. A video piece and works on paper will also be shown.

“Justin Pribulick’s complex, multimedia installation trades in a biting social commentary that skillfully combines the comic and absurd,” said Kathryn Kramer, professor of art history at SUNY Cortland. “His work is at the leading edge of what is currently heralded as a revival of iconoclastic art reminiscent of the Hairy Who and Chicago Imagists.”

The B.F.A. is a 73-credit hour intensive degree program within the Art and Art History Department that requires a portfolio review to enter. The senior year thesis project is intended for students who plan to pursue a professional career in art or to prepare for specialized graduate study, in particular the Master of Fine Arts degree.

A cohesive body of work is developed from concept to exhibition, accompanied by written proposal, summary documentation and oral presentation. Entrance into senior thesis is by special permission attained through committee review of work at the end of the junior year.
