Without Borders features groundbreaking intermedia
Exhibition features installation art, variable media, sound art and community based graffiti

Without Borders


Without Borders VIII: Breaking Ground

Reception Thursday 15 September 5:30-7:30

SEPTEMBER_2011. You'll never know whether you see the Mona Lisa differently than your roommate sees it. But you can be sure you'll each see the Variable Museum differently, because this work in Augmented Reality is built that way. The Variable Museum is one of a number of intermedia pieces on view in Lord Hall for Without Borders VIII: Breaking Ground, whose closing reception takes place on Thursday 15 September from 5:30 to 7:30pm.

The exhibition will open on August 12 in the Lord Hall gallery on campus and run through September 16.

Without BordersThis year's Without Borders features the thesis work of the first graduating class from the IMFA program; John Bell, Richard Corey, Ryan Guerrero, Bethany Engstrom, Matthew Leavitt and Justin Taylor. The exhibition presents a variety of art that exists "between" traditional art forms, and includes installation, variable media, sound art and community based graffiti.

Owen Smith, Director of the IMFA, said, "The Without Borders exhibition this year is very exciting for me, not only does this present the first full class of graduating University of Maine MFA students in Intermedia, but also the nature and breadth of the work itself is really remarkable. What is a clear, is that if nurtured, creativity can take almost any form, and what I keep coming back to is that although the work presented is very divergent, there is a wonderful and strong sense of what is possible in, or through an intermedia approach."

Without Borders

The exhibit is free and open to the public weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A closing reception is scheduled for September 15 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. More information on Without Borders is available at www.withoutbordersfest.org and information on the Intermedia MFA can be found at www.intermediamfa.org.
