Curatorial Statement
Unlisted considers the unexpected encounters of nine third-year MFA candidates from the Lamar Dodd School of Art. The exhibition playfully references the mundane strangeness of Craigslist postings, a site notorious for its niches, where serendipitous meetings and missed connections are equally valid.

With a range of interdisciplinary work–from objects and garments to text, images, and prints–the curation plays happenstance against intention. Accumulation and proximity reveal alignments, as the artists engage with the looming urgencies of planetary crises, the complexities of connection in the digital age, and the wonder of ecological systems.

The pop up exhibition’s provisional space echoes the time of passage that the artists currently share, while its informality channels the impromptu mundanity of the listings forum. Viewers are invited into an installation in which craft, absurdity, mystery, disaster, and nostalgia swirl around one another. Rather than an advertisement, Unlisted proposes an open-ended space of possibility predicated on looking for the unlikely.
