The Nothing Major Show at MECA is an annual student-run exhibition. This show is open to any first or second year student. If you are a non-major, SUBMIT your ART! You can be a junior that is undeclared and still enter. Each student can submit one work or a cohesive series.
This year the show theme is IDENTITY and is titled WHO WE ARE.
Who we are and what motivates us are central questions for all of us. This investigation of self is particularly prevalent in art school, where our own work can be seen and understood and an extension of ourselves. We struggle to find our personal originality and uniqueness that can inform and create our art practice.
Here are some possible questions you could consider when selecting the art to submit:
What does identity mean?
Who dictates this identity?
Who are you, and how does your art reflect that?
