BFA+MFA Thesis 2024

A welcome from the Dean

Welcome to the BFA + MFA Online Exhibition 2024. I invite you to get to know our talented graduating students through their inspired work. This class began their studies with VCUarts Qatar through the early days of the pandemic, and their artworks tell their stories, inviting each of us along on their journey.

The themes of displacement, colonization and duality are found in some pieces, while others encourage exploration of the expat experience, and the questions surrounding the balance between utility, creativity, and personal artistic expression. Our students have explored traditions and influences of life in Qatar. Many of them chose to celebrate cultural identity shaped through memories, amidst explorations of audio, linguistic, visual, local and historical heritage.

May these artworks inspire you, provoke thought, and spark conversations that transcend time and boundaries. Their passion and talent shine brightly in this very special show.
