Taking inspiration from the iconic musical compilations, Now That’s What I Call Love! proposes the 2019 SVA MFA Visual Arts Thesis exhibition as a mixtape, a collection of love songs by wildly diverse artists working with unique forms, approaches, and emotional undertones. Among the most pronounced interests of this class are the desire for connection, tenderness, and mutual understanding; and conversely, alienation, distancing, and miscommunication.
