For many Visual and Environmental Studies students, the Senior Thesis is the capstone experience in the department. Students conceive their theses in conjunction with the department and work closely with faculty members as principal advisers. Throughout the yearlong process, students develop and refine their ideas into a thesis work, concluding with its presentation in this annual exhibition. 

Ariana Chaivaranon, Bruno Moguel Gallegos, Essa L., Susan Yao Li, Brigheil Lalor, Michelle Long, Tanner McColl, Lily Scherlis, and Kevin Zhu. 

The Department of Visual and Environmental Studies is home to a range of studio and theoretical studies in the arts at Harvard University. It offers courses in painting, drawing, sculpture, film, video, and animation, as well as photography, film history, the built environment, and contemporary art. The academic experience transpires in the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, where thinking and making intersect to enable students from a variety of disciplinary studies to be aware of their visual environment.

The Opening Reception coincides with VES Open Studios and Student Screenings, a showcase of student work produced in Spring courses. Open Studios takes place Fri, Apr 27, 5–7 pm and Screenings are held Wed, Apr 25 through Sat, Apr 28, 7–10 pm.

HAPPENING | Re: Monday Gallery

Hung along the four walls of the stark, square space was a continuous sequence of postcard-sized photos and bits of text, spaced well apart and presented in pairs. The viewer was thus surrounded by impetuses to recreate and imagine the connection between the text that prompted the photos and the photos themselves.

Here was art not as destination, but rather as prompt for mental travel: these postcard art objects, though fixed in a neat sequence, by their suggestive and incomplete natures inspired acts of imagination and memory on the part of the viewer.

Postcards were even available to be taken home from the show. “An emotion or essence can be derived from it, but not the whole story is there,” says E. Li '19, a VES concentrator whose work is featured in the show.
