School of Visual Arts (SVA) presents “2020 Visions,” a juried exhibition of multidisciplinary works by alumni from the class of 2020. Organized by SVA Galleries, in collaboration with SVA Alumni Affairs, the exhibition will be on view from Tuesday, November 17, 2020, through Saturday, January 16, 2021, at galleries.www.api-cnc.com.


The class of 2020 was affected like no other in the history of SVA. Among other adversities, many of these students were deprived of the opportunity to have a gallery exhibition of their work this past spring. SVA Galleries invited all class of 2020 graduates to submit art about or inspired by this unprecedented year. Juried by five notable SVA alumni—José Carlos Casado (MFA 2001 Computer Art), Dana Davenport (BFA 2015 Photography and Video), Chioma Ebinama (MFA 2016 Illustration as Visual Essay), Nadia Haji Omar (MFA 2014 Fine Arts) and Jocelyn Tsaih (BFA 2015 Graphic Design)—these 60 selected artworks reference our current time.


The 34 artists and SVA class of 2020 graduates featured in this exhibition are Chun-Chieh Chang (MFA Fine Arts), Miguel Manrique Chirinos (BFA Illustration), Dani Choi (MFA Illustration as Visual Essay), Emily Crawford (BFA Illustration), Cici Gee (MPS Directing), Edward Gia (BFA Photography and Video), Tyler Glenn (BFA Fine Arts), Natalie V.
