2020 University of Toronto MVS Studio Program Graduating Exhibition

University of Toronto Art Centre

The Art Museum at the University of Toronto is pleased to exhibit the graduating projects of the 2020 Master of Visual Studies graduate students Emily DiCarlo, Christopher Mendoza, Brandon Poole, and Jordan Prosser.

This exhibition is produced as part of the requirements for the MVS degree in Visual Studies at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design, University of Toronto.

Emily DiCarlo is an artist and writer whose interdisciplinary work applies pseudo-scientific methodologies that often produce collaborative, site-specific projects. Evidenced through video, performance and installation, her research connects the infrastructure of time with the intimacy of duration.

Christopher Mendoza is an artist-educator whose work unravels and is entangled in the geographical politics of narration—investigating questions of belonging through embodied and place-based research. Often articulated through material traces, ephemera, and written and oral histories, the work moves between performance, sculpture and writing. Chris currently resides in Toronto.

Brandon Poole is an interdisciplinary artist based in Toronto. Having previously trained in photojournalism and philosophy, his work develops upon the inheritance of archival material to mediate the entwined histories and speculative futures of architecture, cinema, and simulation.

Jordan Elliott Prosser works with video and sculpture. Employing auto-ethnographic and documentary strategies, Jordan has returned to his hometown to chart a personal and communal identity. His new work explores the precarity of industrialized normativity through an embedded but critical empathy, invoking observational and surreal modes of representation to allegorize the contradictory present of the suburbs.
