In contrast with Southern Exposure's juried show, BOOM!, GONE connotes sentiments of extinction, things lost and remembered. From September- December, YAB studied the practice of curating, and approached this skill as a collaborative creative process similar to art making. GONE explores and tests the limits of what an exhibition can be, investigating alternative curatorial methodologies in order to support and nurture the development of critical cultural producers. YAB students will also present their own site-specific collaborative piece in the Artists in Education classroom, highlighting the entire semester’s learning process.

Exhibiting Artists: Dan Ball, John Casey, Genevieve Dupre, Jeremy Fish, Veronica Graham, Collette Campbell Jones, Mike Kerhsnar, Carolyn Radlo and Alanna Simone, Nicolas Torres, Brian Weiss and Erik Wilson
