Transmissions: XXIV Faculty Biennial

January 26, 2023 — April 22, 2023

The Faculty Biennial is a venerable tradition on the WSU campus and the longest-running series of exhibitions at the Ulrich Museum. The Biennial represents the breadth of creative work and research being undertaken by the faculty of the School of Art, Design and Creative Industries (ADCI). The 2023 edition showcases the work of faculty who specialize in art history, art education, ceramics, drawing, fiber, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and mixed and new media. The Biennial’s theme, Transmissions, seeks to prompt reflections and start conversations about the altered creative landscape in which artists and educators, like the rest of us, find themselves in the wake of nearly three years of disruptions and changes. Making art in response to global paradigm shifts has set new challenges and opened new pathways for creative reflection. The theme invites a dialogue among ADCI faculty and Ulrich audiences on rethinking art practice in response to a participatory post-digital landscape, the de-centering of long-standing historical narratives, and the transcendence of familiar boundaries and borders.

This exhibition and associated programs are generously supported at the Ulrich Museum by the ongoing support of Salon Circle members, who make the Museum’s exhibitions and programs possible through their Salon memberships. The Ulrich also receives funding for general operational support from the City of Wichita and Wichita State University.

See the digital publication that accompanies Transmissions: The XXIV Faculty Biennial.
