If you have been keeping up with @mecaart on Instagram this week, you will have spotted a few new voices taking over our feed. During a weeklong excursion to the Venice Biennale in Italy, we have been thrilled to see some of the most exciting exhibitions on view in the contemporary art world through the eyes of MFA candidates Grace Hager (@grace.makes), Phoebe Snyder (@premium_hogwash), and Steffany Ojeda-Reyes (@steffanyojeda_art).
“As a painter who recently started working three-dimensionally in ceramics, my eyes were keen for any sculpture on this trip,” Hager shared. “From long time favorites like a dancing Shiva bronze, to contemporary favorites like Claire Tabouret’s bronze bathers, and surprises like Mirko’s bronze ‘Roaring Lion’, Venice didn’t disappoint! Seeing work in person is always invaluable, but especially so when it comes to work in the round that activates the body and space.”
We hope you continue with us on this exciting journey of vicarious discovery until the cohort returns at the end of this week.
