The exhibition no time for laundry presents the work of graduating master of fine arts students from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. Titled by the graduating class, the phrase no time for laundry humorously sums up the singular focus of an MFA Thesis student’s life. School, art, and political engagement swallow up daily life leaving little time for much else.

CURATORIAL STATEMENT

Liminal Space, a term to describe the transition between past and future, showcases emerging artists from different backgrounds, coming together to speak of their own experiences. Over the past year, the artists have been given an opportunity to reflect and cultivate their understanding of the world, affected by the macro and micro spheres of influence, from the personal to global. 

Liminal Space challenges physical and mental realities in conjunction with unlayering and dismantling facades created by society. These facades have become a part of the human condition and by finding ways to survive, cope and heal from these events and histories, we hope to shed light on the quiet shadow these complex truths have cast on contemporary perspectives of life and identity.
