2022 Core Exhibition

March 10–April 22, 2022
Leslie and Brad Bucher Gallery & Levant Foundation Gallery, Glassell School of Art

Every year, the Core Program at the Glassell School of Art awards residencies to artists and critical writers, culminating in the spring with an exhibition and yearbook.

The 2022 Core Exhibition features work by the 2021–2022 artists-in-residence: Mickey Aloisio, Bryan Castro, Maggie Jensen, Jagdeep Raina, Fred Schmidt-Arenales, and Sindhu Thirumalaisamy. This year’s Core critics-in-residence, Víctor Albarracín Llanos and Karen Schiff, have contributed essays based on their independent research to the 2022 Core Yearbook, published in conjunction with the exhibition.
