Explore Works by Emerging Talent from One of America’s Leading MFA Programs


Hauser & Wirth is honored to host a presentation of thesis work by 19 MFA candidates from New York City’s Hunter College. Originally planned as physical exhibitions at their Tribeca campus this spring and postponed due to COVID-19, this digital spotlight provides a new platform for these emerging artists entering the field.


Part of the City University of New York (CUNY), Hunter College is a distinguished public university, and its MFA in Studio Art program offers students a critical framework to develop their artistic practice. Deeply rooted in the New York arts community, its alumni and faculty have shaped the landscape of contemporary art, and have made significant contributions to the field as artists, educators, and art professionals.


The Hunter College 2020 MFA Thesis Spotlight presents multimedia installations, sculpture, paintings, and video works in four thematic groupings, including ‘Gravity Spell’, ‘Thresholds’, ‘Interstices’, and ‘Save the Last Dance.’


Discover the candidates’ working processes through interviews and texts from Joachim Pissaro, Professor of Art History and Director of the Hunter College Galleries, and Carrie Moyer, Director of MFA Program in Studio Art.
